Blaze Ragnaruk 4Star Blow (ブレイズラグナルク・フォースター・ブロウ, Bureizu Ragunaruku Fō Sutā Burou) is an Attack Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It was released as a B-00 wbba. Store Exclusive Booster in Japan in 2017 for 972円.
Energy Layer - Blaze Ragnaruk
Main article: Energy Layer - Blaze Ragnaruk
Takara Tomy's Blaze Ragnaruk is a round Energy Layer designed for Stamina. Consisting of a small inner layer made of clear plastic and four wings, two of which are small and made of clear plastic and two of which are large are made of colored plastic. The large wings are molded to create the visage of heads to match the anime's rendition of the Layer's beast, a winged demon. The small clear wings are dubbed the "Stamina Wings" and make up the gimmick of this Layer.
In theory, the edges of the wings would extend from their hinges and increase a Beyblade's stamina by increasing the Layer's Outward Weight Distribution (OWD), however in practice the size of the wings are simply too small to cause any noticeable weight shift and thus serve no real purpose.
The compact placement of the wings creates a very round design where any protrusions and gaps from and between the wings are too shallow to create high recoil. The large size of the wings imply high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and Stamina potential but in actuality, Blaze Ragnaruk's Stamina is only average. Blaze Ragnaruk features four teeth of tall height giving this Layer high Burst Resistance.
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 - Star
Main article: Disc Frame - Star
Star, as its name implies, is a Disc Frame that has a star-like shape. Its design consists of eight protrusions; five of which are placed in a star-like formation, and the other three are placed in between them. The underside of the Disc Frame features ten protrusions; eight of which are seen on the frontside, and the other two are placed near the sockets needed to apply Star onto a Core Disc.
While Star is too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer, its thick design makes it heavier than most Disc Frames, providing use in Attack Combinations, though not to the degree of other Disc Frames such as Meteor and Bump. However, unlike the aforementioned Disc Frames, Star's rather smooth underside provides Life-After-Death, though not to the degree of Glaive and Cross. Nonetheless, Star has use in both Attack Combinations and Spin-Equalization Combinations.
Performance Tip - Blow
Main article: Performance Tip - Blow
Blow, like Accel, features a flat plastic tip, albeit at a smaller diameter. This smaller diameter is designed to bring the Beyblade towards the center faster to strike the opponent at a much faster rate than Accel and conserve greater Stamina. While these effects do occur, they are hampered by the shape of the tip. Unlike other flat tips, Blow's tip is taller and shaped in the form of a cone rather than a short straight cylinder. This shape means that Blow becomes very easily Destabilized, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Sharp Performance Tip, and become liable to floor scrapes.
