Diomedes D2 Triple Accel is an Attack Type Beyblade released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in western countries as a Starter Pack for CAD$14.99 in Canada, USD$9.99 in the United States, and AUD$18.99 in Australia.
Energy Layer - Diomedes D2
- Main article: Energy Layer - Diomedes D2
Hasbro's Diomedes D2 is an Attack Type Energy Layer featuring three walls made from colored plastic and three points made from clear plastic. The points and walls create the visage of a bow and arrow, meant to represent the Layer's namesake; Diomedes, a hero in Greek mythology.
The pointed design of the Layer makes Diomedes D2 ill-suited for Defense or Stamina Combinations and instead function akin to a three pointed Xcalius. While this may imply high Attack potential, Diomedes D2 is crippled by its light weight and the walls that cover the points up, severely reducing recoil.
Forge Disc - Triple
- Main article: Forge Disc - Triple
Triple is a three-sided Forge Disc, which is circular, with a triangle stacked atop it creating knob protrusions. It has use in Attack, especially on three sided layers like Valkyrie since it focuses some weight around those three main protrusions, but it is not as useful as a Forge Disc like Gravity, as it is too light to be really effective in Attack, and too imbalanced to use in other Combinations.
Performance Tip - Accel
- Main article: Performance Tip - Accel
Accel features a plastic flat tip with a small diameter, akin to Flat from Metal Fight Beyblade, and sits at the standard height. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter A for easy differentiation from other Drivers. Due to the surface area, Accel will create an aggressive, and if launched at an angle, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Accel is faster than Blow but is slower than Xtreme, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. Due to the plastic construction, Accel is an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations. Furthermore, the solid construction also ensures that Accel will not wear out like other Drivers such as Xtreme nor be damaged like Zephyr.
However, Accel's plastic construction is also a weakness as Attack Combinations using Accel can lose their Banking Pattern somewhat easily, especially if the Combinations are unbalanced. Furthermore, the low friction means that Accel is liable to Self-Knock-Outs.
