Crash Ragnaruk 8Bump Wedge (クラッシュラグナルク・エイト・バンプ・ウェッジ, Kurasshu Ragunaruku Eito Banpu Wejji) is a Stamina-Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. As an anime-exclusive Beyblade, it was never released. It is owned by Taka Kusaba.
Energy Layer - Crash Ragnaruk
Main article: Energy Layer - Crash Ragnaruk
Takara Tomy's Crash Ragnaruk is a round Energy Layer designed for Stamina. Consisting of four wings, two of which are small and made of clear plastic and two of which are large are made of colored plastic, akin to its predecessor Blaze Ragnaruk. 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. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Crash Ragnaruk features metal in its design; in this case, concentrated on the wings.
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 metal laced wings improves Stamina Potential by creating high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD). Furthermore, Crash Ragnaruk keeps the same "Stamina Wings" gimmick from its predecessor Blaze Ragnaruk. In Crash Ragnaruk however, the "Stamina Wings" are made of metal, and while the movement action has no effect in battle, the weight of the metal does increase Stamina.
However, Crash Ragnaruk features four teeth of only medium-short height which severely reduces the Layer's Burst Resistance. However, Crash Ragnaruk's heavy weight and the round, low recoil perimeter can compensate to create tournament acceptable Burst Resistance.
Like many other Cho-Z Layers, Crash Ragnaruk is unbalanced, though not to the same degree as others, which increases Burst risk and drains Stamina. However, these issues can be solved with the use of a Level Chip that fits underneath the Layer.
Forge Disc - 8
Main article: Forge Disc - 8
8, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features four protrusions, each molded into the shape of an "8". Each of the lower loops of the "8"s features gaps, akin to Knuckle, which takes weight away from the center and creates high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and subsequent Flywheel Effect, features theoretically perfect for Stamina. Furthermore, 8 is one of the heaviest Discs in the game, heavier than Heavy, Gravity, 2, 4, and 6 and its use can bolster a Beyblade's Knock-Out Resistance and Attack potential. However, like other heavy discs with high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) such as Gravity and Ring, the use of 8 severely decreases a Beyblade's Burst Resistance as a trade off. ==Disc Frame - Bump
Performance Tip - Wedge
Main article: Performance Tip - Wedge
Wedge features a tall low angled cone tip made of metal, akin to a combination of Survive and Metal Sharp from Metal Fight Beyblade, that sits at a standard height. The Stamina of such shapes is further bolstered by the low friction of the metal which also theoretically increases the Burst resistance of any Wedge-based Combination. These features grant Wedge high Stamina potential, which would make it an excellent choice for Stamina Combinations. However, Wedge has two major weakness that make it a huge risk in competitive play, the low friction of the metal and the weight distribution of the Tip itself.
Due to how little friction there is between the metal tip and the stadium floor, Wedge is easy to Destabilize as well as Knock-Out. While the Tip may seem to be comprised mostly of metal and thus heavy to create a stable low center of gravity, the metal in Wedge is in fact hollow which limits weight. Furthermore, Wedge itself is unbalanced which creates erratic movements that increases Burst risk and drains Stamina.
- This Beyblade has parts from the Beyblades of various main characters from the previous Burst seasons: the Crash Roktavor Energy Layer from Ranjiro Kiyama's Crash Roktavor, the 8 Forge Disc from Free De La Hoya's Drain Fafnir, the Bump Disc Frame from Toko Aoi's Spiral Treptune, and the Yard Performance Tip from Fubuki Sumiye's Emperor Forneus.
