Death Quetzalcoatl 125RDF is a Balance Type Beyblade that appears in the Beyblade: Metal Fury anime and manga, and is owned by Tithi. It was released by Takara Tomy on October 22nd, 2011 in Japan. Hasbro later released this Beyblade as part of the Beyblade Legends toyline in 2014.

In the toyline, it is the successor to Quetzalcoatl 90WF.

Face Bolt: Quetzalcoatl

This Face Bolt depicts the Mesoamerican deity, Quetzalcoatl. Its name comes from the Nahuatl language and it means "feathered-serpent." In Mesoamerican mythology, Quetzalcoatl was the deity of Venus, knowledge, arts, merchants, the wind, and transgressions between the Earth and the sky. The design is in a very accurate Mesoamerican recreation of the art style, as well as having a back drop of Mesoamerican script. The design features Quetzalcoatl's face looking to the left with its mouth wide open, sticking out its snake-like tongue while appearing on a bronze Face Bolt.

4D Clear Wheel: Quetzalcoatl

  • Weight: 2.6 grams

Quetzalcoatl is a translucent bright gold in color.  The design is greatly influenced by Quetzalcoatl, as it showcases two cobras adjacent to one another, and both are shown having a set of wings with black Aztec-like highlights. Also like all 4D Energy Rings, it contains metal fillings for added weight, but like most Energy Rings, the effect is negligible.

Attack: 5 - Defense: 0 - Stamina: 2

4D Metal Wheel: Death


Metal Frame

The wheel and the core are similar to that of Kreis Cygnus and Fusion Hades because you can switch the core over to change its mode. Death's Metal Frame acts as an "upper" layer of some sort to the Wheel. It has a series of upward and downward curves which gives it a serpentine-like look, or either a crown. The Metal Frame also shows more of a snake-like appearance in Defense Mode with its various scales.


Death's Core acts a "lower layer" of some sort to the Wheel. It is straighter than the Metal Frame and features eight wing-like protrusions. These protrusions are slanted with various spikes to represent the wings of Quetzalcoatl.

When together, Death appears much larger than any other Fusion Wheel seen before except for pre-HWS Escolpio, which is equal to Death in thickness, being 12mm in height. Therefore, Death is known as the "Rotating Wall". Death is also very thick and rock-like in design due to its "layers"; these layers, give it the appearance of Quetzalcoatl's body.

  • Weight: 43.6 grams


Death has two modes, "Attack Mode" and "Defense Mode". In Attack Mode, the Metal Frame has a more offensive appearance with a multitude of gaps that, while don't give it sufficient attack power, still give it a grinding ability. In Defense Mode however, the Metal Frame is flipped so that it rests on top of the Core, closing the gaps and thus giving it Defense-Type capabilities; it lowers surface impact in order to increase Stamina. In comparison, Attack Mode is taller than when in Defense Mode. Defense Mode can still grind aginst the opponent, but to a lesser extent.

Also, in Attack Mode, the Energy Ring is raised up, appearing it to be more visible and the Metal Frame has somewhat of a crown-like appearance. For measurements, Death's diameter is 45mm, its radius is 22.5mm, and its circumference is 141.3mm.

The gap created by Death in Attack Mode is not large enough to latch onto another Bey. But in performance, Death appears to be an excellent alternative to Duo or Twisted, due to Death's height, weight, width, and especially its balance; which is much better than Twisted's. Death has also been obtaining excellent results as an Attack, Defense, and Stamina Wheel, making it a triple-threat in any Mode. Because of this, this has made Death a very successful Fusion Wheel, preferably for Defense. Death is also the best HWS balance fusion wheel to date.

Spin Track: 125

Track 125 img

  • Weight: 1.0 grams

125 is a Spin Track of moderate height, midway between 85 and 230 Tracks. It is average and has some use in Stamina-Type customizations but is overall outclassed by its variants, T125 and D125, along with others such as BD145 and TH170. It is a translucent crimson red in colour.

Performance Tip: Rubber Defense Flat (RDF)

Bottom rdf img

Weight: 1.1 grams Full Width: 15.89 mm Tip Width: 14.81 mm Full Height: 10.20 mm Tip Height: 8.49 mm Tip Angle: 80° Tip Angle with encasing: 30°

RDF is a combination of shapes to hypothetically form a tip with both Defense and Attack abilities. This Bottom consists of a very wide plastic encasing which holds a rubber tip with a large, flat surface and a small protuberance in the middle which ends in another flat point. The rubber, which constitutes the actual tip, comes very flush with the plastic structure that contains it. In actual performance, it is similar to CS in the sense that it can have an aggressive pattern and a Defensive pattern.

The release of RDF essentially made RS irrelevant, since it is just as effective, if not more, but also because of certain key differences. First, its superior height and better balance allows RDF to be used with the best defensive Track available at the time, BD145, without being hindered by floor scraping. Secondly, RDF has much more Stamina than RS, which was always an obstacle to the latter.

When shot in a standard manner, it is stationary, much like the S tip. When weak launched, it is similar to a worn RS' movement patterns which is usually a light circling around the center of the stadium. When banked, the outer plastic part of RDF comes into contact with the stadium causing instability and erratic behavior, much like an aggressive CS, but with more grip as it has a much larger surface area of flat rubber and plastic. When contact is made with the opposing Beyblade, RDF may tilt and fall onto its outer ring and begin an aggressive movement again, before regaining balance relatively quickly. Stamina-wise, it is a tad inferior to CS and should therefore not be used for Stamina purposes.

Wearing does occur with RDF, like any other rubber-based tip, and it is recommended you buy a mint one for optimum Defensive performance.

Use in Defense/Balance Customization

RDF can be utilized in the Defense/Balance customization MSF-H Wyvang Dragooon BD145RDF. RDF's grip, together with the heavy weight of BD145 negates Wyvang's recoil, and provides Dragooon the balance and precession it needs to outspin opponents in the opposite direction. The result is an incredibly powerful Defense customization which can easily weather down the fiercest of attack types.

Attack: 2 - Defense: 3 - Stamina: 2

Other Versions

  • Quetzalcoatl Purple Ver. - Purple recolor of the Quetzalcoatl 4D Clear Wheel, released with a WBBA Face Bolt for placing 3rd Place in an official WBBA tournament.[1]



Quetzalcoatl's Beast is based on the mythological creature of the same name. Represented as a large snake-like creature with large wings, i.e. a feathered serpent. While appearing yellow, it shows brown highlights with red eyes and sharp teeth. It also has two smaller wings near its head. Its body also appears to be completely made of bone.

Special Moves


Ishtar Impact.

  • Ishtar Impact : (イシュタルインパクトIshutaruinpakuto): As Death Quetzalcoatl emits a bright light, its Beast appears covered in a yellow aura. Then, as the Beys make contact, a large explosion occurs and Quetzalcoatl's Beast immediately takes the opposing Bey to the sky and drops it, depleting its spin entirely.
  • Ascent Spark: (アセントスパーク Asentosupāku): Death Quetzalcoatl starts circling around the air, in order for its Beast to appear. Death Quetzalcoat's Beast than wraps itself on the opposing Bey's Beast if it has one, like a snake. This occurs as Death Quetzalcoatl attacks the opposing Bey on top of it, followed by an explosion.
