Blast Jinnius 5Glaive Guard (ブラストジニウス・ファイブグレイブ・ガード, Burasuto Jiniusu Faibu Gureibu Gādo) 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 as a Booster in Japan on August 11th, 2017 for 972円.
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 - 5
Main article: Forge Disc - 5
5, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is asymmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. One side features two protrusions and the other features three, all molded in the shape of "5"s and the center features two small holes on either side. While the asymmetrical design may imply imbalance, the smaller size of two of the protrusions on the three lobed side ensures that the Disc is balanced. 5's overall shape resembles a reversed 4 and acts almost identically with the same high Stamina potential, Knock-Out Resistance and Life-After-Death when paired with Disc Frames such as Glaive or Cross. While 7 has greater Stamina, 5 is still comparable.
Disc Frame - Glaive
Main article: Disc Frame - Glaive
Glaive is a mostly round Disc Frame with two sharp, wave like protrusions on either side. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer in battle, the round shape of Glaive grants high Life-After-Death while the upwards direction of the protrusions ensure they do not scrape along the stadium floor. While Cross has greater Life-After-Death, Glaive is still comparable.
Performance Tip - Guard
Main article: Performance Tip - Guard
Guard features a ball shaped tip surrounded by a downward facing dish that freely moves vertically, akin to Zero-G Beyblade's E230 Track. In theory the dish is meant to make contact with the stadium floor when the Beyblade is struck, forcing it back upright, acting as brakes to prevent a Knock-Out while the vertical movement of the dish is meant to prevent Stamina loss. In practice however, the vertical movement prevents the dish from Stabilizing a Combination on the shallow curvature of the stadium and because the dish does not spin freely, it causes the Beyblade to accelerate instead of stopping which worsens Destabilization further.
Unlike other ball based Performance Tips, Guard's tip does not features any tabs as their purpose had been integrated into the dish. However, the relatively smooth rim of the dish and its vertical movement nullifies most of its Knock-Out Resistance with greater Stamina loss and the small diameter of the tip does little to stop the Beyblade. While the smooth ball would imply greater Stamina than Defense, the aforementioned dish nullifies any Stamina benefit.
- Blast Jinnius' name and avatar are based off of a Jinn, a supernatural creature in Arab folklore and Islamic mythology that occupies a world parallel to that of mankind.
- Jinnius avatar is a wind-based Genie, which is enforced by the its ability to create and control cyclones.
- Blast Jinnius is one of three Beyblades featured in the Beyblade Burst Evolution anime to retain its original Japanese name in the English dub, with the other two being Drain Fafnir and Shelter Regulus.
