Bloody Longinus 5 Revolve (ブラッディロンギヌス・ファイブ・リボルブ, Buraddi Ronginusu Faibu Riboribu) is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It was released in Japan between July 7th, 2018 and August 10th, 2018 as a part of a Cho-Z campaign. If you bought up to 2000円 in Takara Tomy Beyblade Burst products from certain stores in Japan, you could obtain these parts.
Energy Layer - Bloody Longinus
Main article: Energy Layer - Bloody Longinus
Takara Tomy's Bloody Longinus is a wide Energy Layer designed for Left-Spin Attack that features five dragon heads, representing the anime's rendition of this Layer's beast; a dragon, with one in the center of the Layer and four that line each of the wings that make up the points of contact, creating a diamond and thus aggressive and high recoil design. The snouts of the dragons and the tip of each wing are molded into the shape of spear heads which are meant to represent this Layer's namesake; the Roman Soldier Longinus of Christian Mythology who stabbed Christ with a lance.
As part of the Cho-Z Layer System and like previous Longinus Layers, Bloody Longinus features metal in its design; in this case, each of the outer dragon heads are made of metal. The inclusion of metal makes Bloody Longinus heavier than most God Layers.
The heavy weight of Bloody Longinus' metal dragon heads generate high inertia which increases the Layer's Knock-Out and Burst potential. However, the Left-Spin nature of Bloody Longinus means that it and a Right-Spin opponent's Layer will spin together like gears if they are of similar spin speed, which heavily reduces recoil and the rate of Bursts. However, the recoil-heavy diamond shape can still create strong Knock-Out potential, though not to the degree of Nightmare Longinus, in Opposite-Spin battles and makes Bloody Longinus outclass its predecessor in Burst Attack potential in Left-Spin vs. Left-Spin battles.
Furthermore, Bloody Longinus is very wide in shape, which increases its Attack range and allows greater room for error in Banking Patterns. While the opposite spin allows for some degree of Spin-Equalization, it is not to the degree of Geist Fafnir or Spriggan Requiem.
Bloody Longinus features three teeth of medium-high length that are capable of withstanding the recoil this Layer produces, even against another Left-Spin opponent, as the heavy weight further increases Burst Resistance as the Layer's higher inertia can better resist teeth skipping.
Like many other Cho-Z Layers, Bloody Longinus is unbalanced which increases the risk of Bursts, is liable to break Banking Patterns and drains Stamina. However, these issues can be solved with the use of a Level Chip that fits underneath the Layer.
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.
Performance Tip - Revolve
Main article: Performance Tip - Revolve
Revolve features a sharp tip of a small diameter surrounded by a free spinning ring, akin to the Around Sharp Performance Tip from the Metal Fight Saga. The sharp tip of Revolve provides low friction with the stadium floor, resulting in high Stamina and Burst Defense properties. While the small diameter of the sharp tip may imply easy Destabilization, the wide diameter of the free spinning ring helps maintain Stability. The wide diameter of the ring also provides Revolve high Precession time which is useful against Opposite-Spin and Mobile Stamina Combinations. Furthermore, when launched at an angle, the free spinning ring of Revolve makes more contact with the stadium floor resulting in decent Knock-Out Resistance, however said Knock-Out Resistance still lags behind that of Orbit and Atomic due to the lower surface area and some Beyblades that are off center are easier to Burst.
In the current metagame, Revolve is best suited for Pure Stamina Combinations due to the release of Atomic. However, Revolve's spring lock is stronger than that of Atomic and Orbit's, allowing it to be a safer choice for Layers with weak teeth such as Deep Chaos.
Due to considerable manufacturing variations, Bladers must be careful when using this Tip. Some variations of Revolve do not spin freely as they should, and the disc becomes very stiff to tilt. Others have the disc pop out after significant usage. For competitive use, the most free spinning one is ideal. The chances of obtaining one, however, are random.
