The Face Bolt depicts "Horologium", one of the 88 constellations in space. Horologium is Latin for "clock". The design features Horologium stylized as a pendulum clock with four clock hands pointing North, South, East, and West with an eye in the center, as well as four other eyes between the hands.

Energy Ring - Tempo

Tempo is a circular gear shaped Energy Ring with Roman numerals reminiscent of a clock decorating the circumference. There is a rectangular gap where "III" is supposed to be, and two clock hands causing irregular weight distribution.

A common misconception is the usage of the Roman numeral "IIII" instead of "IV" being an error by Takara Tomy/Hasbro. While the proper Roman numeral for the number 4 is "IV", "IIII" is commonly used on Roman numeral clocks, and hence its usage on the Tempo Energy Ring.

Fusion Wheel - Counter

Counter is based on the Metal System Leone Wheel. It possesses six mane-like protrusions that make up its circumference. The gaps between the six protrusions are too small to provide consistent Smash Attack for an Attack Type customization. Counter showcases fair Smash Attack, but unlike Leone, it lacks the same degree of recoil. This is because the protrusions are more compact and rounded than Leone's. This lower recoil makes it a better, albeit underwhelming, choice for a Defense Type combo.

Performance Tip - Rubber Spike

Main article: Performance Tip - Rubber Spike

RS is a sharp tip made of rubber. RS's primary purpose is to counteract Attack customisations: the high friction of the rubber tip, along with the lack of movement due to the sharp tip make it incredibly difficult to move, and KO.

RS has similar problems to other sharp tips, and is easy to destabilise. RS also suffers from the poor stamina of rubber-based bottoms, and their tendency to wear down after extensive use.

RS also has difficulty sometimes outlasting left-spinning customisations. Against right-spin Attack customisations however, despite its poor balance and stamina, it is able to effectively neutralize them.
