Attributes (属性, ぞくせい, zokusei) are the "elemental" properties associated with Takara Tomy's Chrome Wheels and Crystal Wheels, part of the Synchrome System toyline. This gimmick featured special emblems on each Element Wheel which indicated their Attribute.
With the introduction of the Synchrome System, Takara Tomy introduced players to new type of Wheels that featured elemental association. The Synchrome System enabled player to combine a Chrome Wheel and Crystal Wheel which could be flipped over enabling a greater variety of strategic selection. Crystal Wheels, in particular, featured the elemental Attributes. By the end of the toyline's production life, Takara Tomy released a total of 6 attributes: Fire, Water, Sky, Earth, Darkness, God. Most of Attributes were released in starter and booster packs, with only Darkness-type Crystal Wheels being released in special package sets.
In a game designed for competitive play, Attributes served no practical function in real-world Beyblade battles and became a novelty in the franchise overall. Under the Hasbro brand, the concept of Attributes were completely absent in their marketing, leaving many to speculate what Takara Tomy had planned for the concept.
With the inclusion of the Japanese hiragana along with the kanji in the logos of each Attribute, readings for their transliteration is simplified. While some are easily translated, the original Japanese term for other Attributes cannot be translated neatly into English.
While terms such as hi, mizu, ten or yami can be translated simply, chi and kami usually means egoism or selfishness in Japanese. :
|Literal translation||Fire, flame||Water, cold water||The sky; the heavens||Earth, land, ground||The dark; darkness||A deity; a god|
- The lightning bolt featured in the "Sky" logo led many to speculate that the attribute would be "Thunder".
- Water is the only element that did not introduce a Water-element Beyblade from a Random Booster; instead originating from a set.
- Takara Tomy promoted the Synchrome System with a "Correlation Diagram" (相関図, sōkanzu) for the Attributes. Given the structure, one could assume that a possible scoring system was devised but never implemented.
