Dark Poseidon 145WD is a Beyblade that appears in the Metal Fight Beyblade VS The Sun: Sol Blaze, the Scorching Hot Invader movie. It was used by its owner Bakin to unlock Sol Blaze V145AS for his grandson Helios, in a failed attempt to control the world. It was never actually released by Takara Tomy or Hasbro but a sticker sheet was released with an issue of CoroCoro Comic.
Face Bolt - Poseidon
The Face Bolt depicts "Poseidon". In Greek mythology, Poseidon was one of the twelve Olympians and the god of the sea. The Face Bolt design depicts Poseidon's face with various trident-like protrusions at the back of his head.
Energy Ring - Aquario
- Main article: Energy Ring - Aquario
Aquario is a circular Energy Ring featuring a wave pattern that repeats itself four times. It is one of the heaviest Energy Rings available, only behind Kerbecs and Striker II, making it one of the best choices for Hybrid Wheel System/4D System Defense Type combinations.
Fusion Wheel - Dark
- Main article: Fusion Wheel - Dark
Dark has twelve spikes facing the clockwise direction. These protrusions are closely packed together with minimal space between each, resulting in an overall round shape. This shape hinders the Fusion Wheel in two ways: its protrusions are not pronounced enough to provide sufficient Smash Attack, while the perimeter is interrupted too frequently for sufficient Stamina. Additionally, its weight is distributed over too large a surface area. There is thus no reason to use Dark in any competitive situation whatsoever.
Spin Track - 145
- Main article: Spin Track - 145
145, along with its variants (Claw 145 (C145), Down Force 145 (DF145), etc.), was once the highest Spin Track available, until the 230 Spin Track was released with Flame Byxis 230WD. 145 can be used in Stamina Type combinations to great effect due to its tall height, which allows for more wobbling as the Beyblade loses its spin velocity. However, gimmick-paired Spin Tracks such as Boost Disk 145 (BD145) have immensely outclassed their original basic variant, as have several taller gimmick Spin Tracks, especially against heavy, mid-height Attack customisations. Even in stamina battles, 145 does not offer enough balance: Spin Tracks such as Armor Defense 145 (AD145) and Wide Defense 145 (WD145) provide a good center of gravity, and aid with a slight downforce to maintain stability.
Performance Tip - Wide Defense
- Main article: Performance Tip - Wide Defense
Wide Defense (WD), as its name implies, is the widest (along with Wave Wide Defense (W2D) and Eternal Wide Defense (EWD)) of the "Defense" series of Performance Tips (D, SD, WD, W2D, EWD and PD). The wide surface area prevents the Beyblade from being knocked over easily. In addition, Wide Defense is able to wobble at a larger angle and for a longer period of time than Defense. However, low spin rate is created towards the end of a battle because in the process of wobbling at such a large angle, more friction is made with the stadium floor, thus decreasing its stamina. Although its name suggests defensive characteristics, Wide Defense does not possess any inherent defensive qualities. Wide Defense finds most use in providing increased stamina in combos.
- Dark Poseidon is one of the few Beys to take its name from its Face Bolt design. It shares this with Generic Beyblades as well as Storm L-Drago WD145B.
- This is the second Beyblade based on Poseidon. The first was Poseidon from Beyblade: G-Revolution.
