Burn Wolf SW145WD or Space Edition Wolf (ヴォルフ宇宙仕様, Vorufu Uchū Shiyō) is a Balance Type Beyblade released by Hasbro. It is owned by Aleksey in the anime.

Face Bolt - Wolf

Main article: Face Bolt - Wolf

The Face Bolt depicts "Lupus", one of the 88 constellations in space. The design features a wolf with an open mouth (presumably howling), and the word "WOLF" inside its mouth. This word is omitted in some Hasbro releases, such as Burn Wolf SW145WD and Earth Wolf 105WD.

Energy Ring - Wolf

The edges of the Wolf Energy Ring consists of four wolf "heads", with one in each quarter of the Energy Ring. This equal weight distribution makes the Beyblade more stable, but Wolf is outclassed by heavier Energy Rings such as Aquario and Kerbecs.

Fusion Wheel - Burn

Main article: Fusion Wheel - Burn

Burn is an almost completely circular Fusion Wheel, interrupted only by two sets of wave-like ridges. The center of the Fusion Wheel features a flame pattern representing the sun, which complements the Fireblaze Energy Ring. Burn's predominant characteristic is its weight distribution. Its weight is concentrated on the edge of the Fusion Wheel, while the center is generally hollow and light. This produces what is known as the Flywheel Effect, which is the ability for a rotating object to increase its rotational velocity with the use of its own momentum.

The ridges are subject to some level of recoil, but are also capable of Smash Attack; however, the latter is not potent enough to be used effectively.

Burn was once the best Stamina Fusion Wheel, along with Metal System Virgo. However, it has since been outclassed by newer Fusion Wheels such as Scythe and Phantom, the latter sharing many characteristics with Burn itself.

Spin Track - Switch 145

SW145 has three 'wings'. The gimmick of this Track is the ability to change from Attack to Defense by taking off the wings, and then putting them on the opposite way. The purpose of this is the ability to adapt to opponent Beys. In Attack mode, which is denoted by six grey claw-like stickers on the underside, the pointed ends of the Track are used for Smash Attack; meanwhile in Defense mode, shown by three triangular blue stickers, the edges are more rounded, in order to deflect opponent Beys. The modes are reversed for Left-Spin Beys. Testing has shown that SW145 is quite useful at attacking lower opponents in a similar fashion to H145 and R145. It is however outclassed for Defense purposes by GB145, BD145, and 230 due to the recoil it produces.

Performance Tip - Wide Defense

Main article: Performance Tip - Wide Defense

Wide Defense (WD) retains the two curved holes D contained but are now thinner, smaller and found on the Sharp tip.

Being wider brings advantages and disadvantages to WD. An advantage is being able to conserve better Stamina than D and SD, due to the more surface area as well as being able to spin at a lower spin-rate that that of D or SD which cannot. A disadvantage however, is that it is worse at regaining balance than D. The wide shape gives WD a harder time to regain its balance whereas, D does it much easier. This should take into consideration when using a Spin Track such as 230 or TH170. D would be a better choice than WD as it would regain balance much easier to help cope with 230. However, while D can regain balance better, it cannot maintain it as well as WD, especially with the heights of 170 and above.

At release, WD has found quick use as a Stamina-Type Tip, much better than D and has become top-tier. Despite this however, as many more Performance Tips like AS, EWD, and B:D were released; they have overshadowed WD. EWD has also overshadowed WD due to EWD's bearing to regain balance better and much better Stamina. W²D performs basically the same as WD though but with worse balance but better attack.

Wide Defense (WD) has significant defensive capabilities as well, but because it still uses a form of sharp tip, its friction with the stadium floor is decreased, which as a result makes it easier to knock around than a Tip like WB which has much more friction with the stadium floor. But since it can recover quickly, it does not matter.

Some Bladers experience a fast movement from Wide Defense, allowing the Wide Defense tip with fast movement to be paired with high-recoil fusion wheels such as Vulcan, Beat, Fang, Spiral, Flash, or Variares, to create powerful, or even a 1-Hit KO Attack-type combos, or be paired with low-recoil fusion wheels such as Bakushin, Duo, Gravity (Perseus Stamina), Fusion, Wing, Death to create counter-attacking Defense-Type combos.

Trivia

  • In its initial appearances in the Metal Masters anime, the Beyblade's animation model erroneously uses a Semi-Defense (SD) Bottom. This was later corrected for the Beyblade's appearance in the Metal Fury anime, which displays the correct Wide Defense (WD) Bottom.
  • Like Hasbro's other releases of previously anime-exclusive Beyblades, the colours and Face Bolt motif are not accurate.
  • In the English and Japanese dubs of the anime, Aleksey calls it "Звездный Волк" (ズヴィズダー・ヴォールク, Zuvizudā Vōruku), which means "Star Wolf" in Russian.
    • The English dub mispronounces "Звездный Волк".
