Berserker Behemoth F230TB is a Earth Element Stamina Type Beyblade released by Hasbro as part of the Synchrome System. It was released in western countries in the Beyblade: Shogun Steel Behemoth Golem Earth Synchrome 2-Pack for USD$15.99 in the United States in May 2013.

The sticker on this Stone Face represents a combination of a Behemoth and Pegira, an Ultraman monster similar to Godzilla with one horn on its forehead and two huge fangs. This is why the Beyblade is called Begirados: the 'b' comes from Behemoth.

Warrior Wheel - Behemoth

Main article: Warrior Wheel - Behemoth
  • Weight: 30.5 grams

Begirados illustrates a clear monster head in a profile view with the centre of the Beyblade right between its jaws. It has a huge fang and a few smaller sharp teeths creating relief on the top, as well as one horn forming one whole side with ragged edges. This same pattern also adorns the opposite side of the Chrome Wheel. Considering that the other sides are made of the bottom of the jaw and the top of the head, Begirados still has a relatively symetrical design. The hole where the Crystal Wheel's orb is supposed to protrude represents the eye, but it is too small to allow the whole orb to stick out.

Element Wheel - Berserker

Main article: Element Wheel - Berserker

Berserker is a symmetrical Element Wheel, representing a line of chains. The orb design appears to represent boulders. While the Berserker Element Wheel has symmetry, its weight is average, and the shape is too irregular to find use. In addition, like all Element Wheels, Berserker is outclassed in all aspects by the use of Warrior Wheels, which are used in Synchrome combinations.

Spin Track - Free 230

Main article: Spin Track - Free 230
  • Weight: 4.6 grams

This Track's gimmick is that it is completely free-spinning. It is implied in its marketing that it can make the Wheel it is attached to rotate in the opposite direction to the one it was launched in, simply after a hit with another Beyblade of the same original spin. However, in practice this would both be impossible, and, due to the fact the Beyblade would momentarily be stationary as it changed directions, result in an automatic loss.

F230's core section is larger than regular Tracks such as 145 and 230 to accommodate the free-spinning mechanism, while the end of the Track bears a much larger version of the irregular structure used for the base of most Bottoms. This change in size allows a Blader to grip and stabilize part of the Track in order to securely screw a Bottom onto F230's end, which would otherwise be complex because of its free-spinning nature.

The F230 Track, although shown to be outclassed by 230 in terms of conventional stamina customizations, has shown startling potential in the field of spin-equalization when used with large and circular Bottoms like CF/GCF that make it remain upright and roll. The free-spinning shaft of F230 allows the combination using it to continue rotating after it has fallen onto the wide ridge of CF/GCF, which keeps the Metal/Chrome Wheel from touching the ground as the upper section of the Beyblade spins, providing a very prominent display of LAD capabilities.

The F230CF/GCF setup has proven to contain some of, if not the, highest Life After Death of any Track-Bottom setup ever in the Metal Fight Beyblade series, and as such is extremely useful in spin-equalizing customizations in both BB-10 or Zero-G format.

IMPORTANT: Mold Variations

TAKARA-TOMY released this Track in two different Beyblades, one of which was Bandit Genbu F230TB (orange). The second version of the track was released with Thief Saramanda F230SF (brown) in the BBG-26 Random Booster vol. 3. Hasbro also released this Track in the Behemoth Golem Earth Synchrom 2-Pack, with Berserker Behemoth F230TB (red), and in the Bandit Genbu F230TB Starter (orange).

The brown and red F230 Tracks, along with Hasbro's orange F230 have shown problems with wear, and the free-spinning function of the track seems to be hindered, squeaking and scraping, as opposed to the smooth, consistent free-spinning function of the Takara Tomy orange F230, which works very well when applied to spin-equalization. The worse of the four molds is Hasbro's red F230, whose internal mechanism appears to grind against itself, which means it almost requires an outside force to spin.

Use in Spin-Equalization customization

The F230 track, for the reasons stated above, can be utilized in the following spin-equalizing customizations if it is the TAKARA-TOMY orange mold.

Genbull Dragooon F230CF/GCF

Duo Cygnus/Cancer F230CF/GCF

Genbull Genbull F230CF/GCF

Attack: 0 - Defense: 2 - Stamina: 11

Performance Tip - Twin Ball

Weight: 0.7 grams

TB is simply half of a sphere with a protruding ball at its tip identical in diameter to the tip of B.

Comparison between WB, TB and B

TB has found potential in Stamina customizations in both the BB-10 Attack Type BeyStadium and the Zero-G Attack Type Stadium. Its slightly aggressive movement pattern and increased amount of friction with the stadium floor as opposed to D-series Bottoms allow it to resist rotational Recoil more effectively than other conventional Stamina Bottoms. Due to its spherical shape, TB also has an unusual ability to wobble at extreme angles for an extended period of time when used on taller Tracks (specifically 230, where this attribute can be utilized to its fullest), similar to MB, although arguably even more effectively, as the period of time for which it can precess is typically longer than MB's precession time. TB is preferred over most Bottoms for Stamina against opponents using the same spin in Zero-G stadiums due to its impressive ability to resist Zero-G Attack types, something which other popular Zero-G stamina bottoms such as BWD/W²D cannot do.

TB can be utilized very effectively when used with SR200, TH170, or 230, allowing it to wobble at a wide angle and take advantage of the optimal center of gravity such heights provide to that Bottom's balance which makes it wobble later, depending on the Wheel(s) used. It also performs notably well when used with the Genbull Chrome Wheel, using its weight and its movement pattern/resistance to rotational Recoil to reduce the opponent's spin velocity by repeatedly inflicting rotational damage.

However, unlike WD or EWD, TB is relatively vulnerable to opposite-spin customizations due to its rounded shape, and one should avoid using it in an opposite-spin match-up whenever possible, as Stamina setups like W145WD are a safer pick in such a scenario to remain upright.

Despite this fact, as shown by its impressive numbers against same-spin opponents, TB is definitely a competitive Stamina part in any stadium format, and is an essential part to any Blader majoring in Stamina.

Use in Stamina customizations

TB, for the reasons stated above, can be utilized effectively in the following Stamina customizations.

Genbull Genbull SR200/TH170TB

Duo Cancer/Cygnus/Hades SA165/230/SR200TB

Use in Zero-G Defense customizations

With its ability to stay balanced and in place despite the swaying movement of the stadium caused by Zero-G Attack types, TB can be a core part of the following Zero-G Defense combos:
