Blast Jinnius 1 Defense (ブラストジニウス・ワン・ディフェンス, Burasuto Jiniusu Wan Difensu) is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It was released in Japan on December 28th, 2017 for 972円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 9 Beat Kukulcan.7U.Hn.
Energy Layer - Blast Jinnius
Main article: Energy Layer - Blast Jinnius
Takara Tomy's Blast Jinnius is a Defense Type Energy Layer that features six clockwise blades, akin to a reversed Neptune. As part of the God Layer System, Blast Jinnius features a gimmick; the six blades can rise up.
Upon impact with the opponent, the blades will rise up as one piece and expose a smoother surface, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's 230/160 tracks. In theory this is meant to reduce points of recoil to improve Burst and Knock-Out Resistance. In practice however, due to the thickness of most other Layers and how little Blast Jinnius' Layer moves, the blades will come into contact with the opponent's Layer regardless.
Furthermore, 'Blast Jinnius' blades are likely to be struck from an upwards angle, Destabilizing any Combination using this Layer which increases the risk of the opponent getting a Knock-Out or Burst on the Combination using Blast Jinnius. This is further exacerbated by the clockwise direction of the blades which creates recoil instead of deflecting impact, while this may imply Attack potential, the movement of the blades nullifies any such potential.
Forge Disc - 1
Main article: Forge Disc - 1
1, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is asymmetrical and elliptical in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. One side features two small sword-tip like protrusions and the other side features a single, larger protrusion of the same shape. 1's gimmick is that it is highly unbalanced, it achieves this by having the side with the larger protrusion being more filled in with metal than the other, akin to Quarter. This weight distribution has two primary uses: The first is to increase the Burst Attack of Attack Combinations by generating momentum like a flail which is further enhanced by the heavy weight of 1. The second is to make a Combination using an unbalanced Layer such as Sieg Xcalibur more properly balanced by aligning the heavier side opposite the the heavier side of the Layer which increases Stamina and Burst Resistance.
Compared to Quarter, 1 has greater success in Attack Combinations and has proven capable of increasing the rate of Bursts despite being lighter than most other Core Discs. However, the same imbalance makes 1 unsuitable for Stamina or Defense as the more unbalanced a Combination is, the easier it is to Burst and the faster it loses Stamina. Furthermore, the imbalance slows down Mobile Attack Combinations, making it better suited for Stationary Attack Combinations.
Performance Tip - Defense
Main article: Performance Tip - Defense (Burst)
Defense features a Ball tip and sits at a standard track height. A protective disk sits halfway down the Performance Tip, and the Ball tip has four support ridges. The center of the Performance Tip also contains a shield decal to symbolize itself.
When simply spinning by itself, Defense behaves as a normal Ball tip. When struck however, the tabs will force the Beyblade back into an upright position after being knocked off balance and act as brakes to prevent Knock-Outs by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. While the ring may imply Defense potential akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's D125 track, it is positioned too low for any Burst System Beyblade to make contact with. However, the smooth perimeter of the ring does grant Life-After-Death potential.
