Beast Behemoth 4Cross Weight (ビーストベヒーモス・フォークロス・ウエイト, Bīsuto Behīmosu Fō Kurosu Ueito) is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in Japan on April 29th, 2017 for 972円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 6 Tornado Wyvern.4G.At.
Energy Layer - Beast Behemoth
Main article: Energy Layer - Beast Behemoth
Takara Tomy's Beast Behemoth is an overall round Energy Layer, the center of the Layer depicts a beast, like the Layer's namesake, biting down on the circle where the "B" of the Layer resides.
Consisting of a colored bottom layer made up of two jaw like arches and a clear top layer consisting of five, widely spaced blades creating a pinwheel-esque look, the "jaws" and ends of the clear blades of the Layer are covered in small serrations like teeth. While these features may imply that this Layer has a lot or recoil, the height of the Layer means that typically both layers come into contact with the opposing Beyblade and fill in each other's gaps and the slight serrations are too small to cause any noticeable recoil and subsequent Stamina loss.
Beast Behemoth also features three tall teeth akin to Victory Valkyrie, allowing it to be used in Defense Combinations with its moderately low recoil.
Forge Disc - 4
Main article: Forge Disc - 4
4, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features two protrusions, one molded into the shape of a "4" and the other molded into the shape of the Roman Numeral "IV". The protrusions extend further from the center more than other Core Discs which grants 4 high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and subsequent Stamina potential. As a Core Disc, 4 is comparatively heavier than regular Forge Discs such as Heavy and Gravity which grants higher Knock-Out Resistance and the ability to facilitate Disc Frames can add characteristics such as Life-After-Death with Cross or Glaive. While 7 has greater Stamina, 4's Stamina is still comparable.
Disc Frame - Cross
Main article: Disc Frame - Cross
Cross features a diamond shape with protrusions on each corner, akin to Force, at an upward angle. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer, the relatively round shape of Cross grants the highest Life-After-Death out of all other Disc Frames in the meta game at the time of writing and the upwards angle of the protrusions ensures that they will not scrape against the stadium floor.
Performance Tip - Weight
Main article: Performance Tip - Weight
Weight features a ball shaped tip made of metal, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Metal Ball Performance Tip, surrounded by a plastic ridge.
Like Metal Ball, the metal tip is meant to decrease friction with the stadium floor and improve Stability and Knock-Out Resistance by lowering the center of balance with its weight and the plastic ridge is meant to provide Life-After-Death with its smooth perimeter.
In practice however, the shape and diameter of the ball creates a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in battle if hard launched, bringing the Beyblade close to the Tornado Ridge. Due to the low friction of the metal, a Beyblade in this state becomes much easier to Knock-Out. A secondary weakness is the plastic ridge, its low positioning means that it is easy for it to contact the stadium floor which exacerbates the aforementioned issue and drains Stamina.
While Weight's sheer weight can improve Knock-Out Defense, it's mitigated by the low friction of metal and rarity of Knock-Outs in the Burst metagame.
