Deathscyther Spread Massive (デスサイザー・スプレッド・マッシブ, Desusaizā Supureddo Masshibu) is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It was released in Japan on December 26th, 2015 for 864円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 2 Evil-eye Wing Needle.
Energy Layer - Deathscyther
Main article: Energy Layer - Deathscyther
Takara Tomy's Deathscyther features a four-bladed design with very smooth sides. It is based off of common depictions of Death as an entity with a skeletal design that uses scythes to attack. As such, the Energy Layer features a hooded skull design.
The colored plastic underneath the transparent casing is focused in the center as well as on half of the perimeter and its three teeth are in descending order, meaning that the first one is very tall, that the second tooth is just slightly shorter than the surrounding ring in the middle and that the third one is small.
Due to its smooth features and the weight concentration that allows for a Flywheel Effect, it excels in Stamina. Without huge impacts with momentum, opponents are unable to use one of its protrusions to Destabilize it or push it in reverse to make it skip over one of its teeth, especially since the first one in the series is tall, following the trait of Energy Layers labeled as Attack Types by the producer. Therefore, in a Stamina battle, it holds its ground and can spin almost undisturbed until the end.
Forge Disc - Spread
Main article: Forge Disc - Spread
Spread is a completely circular Forge Disc, featuring a smooth perimeter and underside only interrupted by four small bumps located beneath the prongs, as well as several stylized blade designs on top. As with all Forge Discs, the letter representing the Forge Disc, in this case, S, is present on top of the prongs that fit into the Energy Layer. Spread has a significant amount of Outward Weight Distribution (OWD), and a relatively thin and aerodynamic shape, making it a viable choice for Stamina Combinations. Depending on which Performance Tip is used, Spread can also provide the combo with some Life-After-Death as it will roll along the stadium floor and give the Combination a few extra rotations after falling over, which can be crucial for Out Spinning an opponent.
For some time after its release, Spread was very useful in Stamina Combinations due to its weight distribution and its fair weight. However, as Bladers now have a wider array of competitively viable Forge Discs to choose from, Spread has fallen out of use compared to options such as Gravity and Knuckle.
Performance Tip - Massive
Main article: Performance Tip - Massive
Massive features a ball shaped tip that sits at the standard height, akin to Defense, but differs by having a larger diameter, having three tabs instead of four and lacking the defensive ring. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's Defense by having greater surface area and friction, however in practice, Massive lags behind Defense in almost every aspect.
Like other ball based Defense Performance Tips, the tabs around Massive are meant to act as brakes against Knock-Outs at the cost of Stamina by striking against the stadium floor, however, the larger diameter makes such contact rare, giving Massive weaker Knock-Out Resistance than Defense.
The greater surface area of the larger ball creates a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing a Beyblade closer to the Tornado Ridge. Due to the aforementioned weaker Knock-Out Resistance, any Beyblade using this tip will become very easy to Knock-Out.
