Cho-Z Achilles 00 Dimension (超Zアキレス・ダブルオー・ディメンション, Chō Z Akiresu Daburuō Dimenshon) is a Balance 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 on December 27th, 2018 for 2160円.
Energy Layer - Cho-Z Achilles
- Main article: Energy Layer - Cho-Z Achilles (Takara Tomy)
Takara Tomy's Cho-Z Achilles is a Balance Type Energy Layer. The center features a shield and an armored face facing forward, unlike its predecessor where the face was seen from a side profile, meant to represent the Layer's namesake, the Greek hero Achilles. The perimeter is made up of four large blades as the primary points of contact, two of which are molded in the shape of swords, granting the Layer high Knock-Out and Burst Attack potential. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Cho-Z Achilles features metal in its design; in this case, concentrated on the sword blades. Cho-Z Achilles also features a gimmick; the Layer features an anti-Bursting mechanism called the "Cho-Z Awakening System".
At high spin velocity, the centrifugal force activates a bistable mechanism, revealing sub wings called the "Cho-Z Wings" and in turn extending tabs called "Burst Stoppers" in the grooves meant to fit the prongs of the Disc. The Burst Stoppers then obstruct the Disc, hindering the last click and preventing the Cho-Z Achilles Combination from Bursting. Due to the bistable mechanism the wings and tabs do not retract when spin speeds are low and must be manually pushed in after every match to allow the gimmick to work as intended.
Only two of Cho-Z Achilles' "Cho-Z Wings" will move the tabs, as well as the remaining two "Cho-Z Wings". However, due to the bistable mechanism, Cho-Z Achilles requires rather extreme spin speeds for the gimmick to activate which may be difficult for younger bladers.
The Layer's size and the inclusion of metal makes Cho-Z Achilles heavier than most God Layers, improving Attack Potential by increasing the weight of the Layer, granting higher inertia that increases both Knock-Out and Burst Attack and increasing the Layer's Burst Resistance as the high inertia resists teeth skipping, a property that compliments the tall teeth of Cho-Z Achilles. Due to these factors and the shape of the blades, Cho-Z Achilles performs well in Attack Combinations. Furthermore, due to the small size of the "Cho-Z Wings" and how recessed they are normally, Cho-Z Achilles shows identical Attack potential whether or not the gimmick is activated, unlike Cho-Z Valkyrie.
However, Cho-Z Achilles' points of contact will wear down fairly quickly with use, drastically reducing the Layer's Attack potential. Due to this, it is recommended to have multiple copies of this Layer and to be prepared to replace it.
Unlike previous Cho-Z Layers and like other Layers with the "Cho-Z" prefix, Cho-Z Achilles is incompatible with a Level Chip.
Forge Disc - 00
- Main article: Forge Disc - 00
00 is a symmetrical, elliptical disc that can facilitate a Disc Frame. 00 is the heaviest Core Disc, outclassing 0 by 1 gram, and has an ideal weight distribution for all Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential. With the use of Disc Frames, 00 can be used to great effect in any Combination. While the weight can increase the risk of Bursts, the weight of most Layers released in the SwitchStrike/God Layer Systems and onward can compensate.
Performance Tip - Dimension
- Main article: Performance Tip - Dimension
Dimension is a Performance Tip with a manual height changing gimmick. It features a stepped spiral design around its perimeter, with a rubber sharp tip in its center. A notched ring around its rubber sharp tip can be rotated to increase the Performance Tip's height, as well as retracting and exposing the rubber sharp tip. There are three heights in total, and combined with the two settings for the rubber sharp tip (exposed or retracted), there are six configurations in total.
- Like its predecessors Z Achilles 11 Xtend and Z Achilles 11 Xtend+, Cho-Z Achilles' name is based on the word "Super" in Japanese, the letter "Z", and Achilles, a Greek hero who fought in the Trojan War and was the greatest warrior and central character in Homer's Iliad.
- Like Cho-Z Valkyrie, Cho-Z Achilles' avatar is the same as Z Achilles' with several alterations:
- The yellow eyes are now green.
- The helmet appears more knight-like with a comb at the top.
- A yellow border, a blue shield-shaped gem.
- A red faceplate with silver lining in the upper section and yellow lining on the bottom
- Amber plating on the helmet's sides.
- The yellow crest with the blue gem on the chest now has two-pronged on each side and the gem is now smaller and hexagonal with an amber shield-style lining around the gem
- The silver portion of the tunic armor is now red.
- The abdominal armor is now silver.
- The silver borders on the armor kilt is now yellow.
- The pauldrons now have a blue-raspberry colored plating on the base and the multi-pronged edge of the pauldrons are now two-pronged.
- The red lining on the edge of each vambrace is now silver with a yellow bordered blue gem at the center.
- The wrist section of each vambrace now has a yellow ring and a yellow-bordered red square at the back of Cho-Z Achilles' hand.
- The shield is now elongated and circular with a blue-raspberry border and a blue-raspberry "V"-shaped wide gem at the lower end, more red with a diamond-style blue gem at the top with a silver plate underneath it with an amber border, that follows the lining of the shield's upper blue-raspberry border, surrounding it and the blue gem.
- And the sword's blade is now silver with a blue-raspberry border, a yellow gem near the tip, four dark-gray patterns in the blade's base, the blue cross-style gem is now replaced with a red orb, and the gray wing-style hilt is now two-winged with the upper pair yellow and the lower pair amber.
- A chance of obtaining the rare black Cho-Z Achilles Layer is 1 in 77. Unlike the Legend Star Bey Set Version, which is also black, this version of the Cho-Z Achilles has red Turbo Blades.
- Cho-Z Achilles is the only Turbo Awakening Beyblade that has four Turbo Blades: two for Attack and two for Defense.
