Doomscizor D3 8Glaive Nothing is a Stamina Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It was released in western countries as a part of the Shadow Snake Pit Battle Set.
Energy Layer - Doomscizor D3
Main article: Energy Layer - Doomscizor D3
Doomscizor D3 is an Attack Type Energy Layer that features a hooded skull facing forwards, unlike previous iterations where the skull was seen from a side profile, holding a large scythe, meant to represent the Layer's namesake, the personification of Death otherwise known as the Grim Reaper. The Layer is made up of six blades. Like its predecessor Dark Deathscyther, two of the blades are made of colored plastic that are sloped to allow for small amounts of Upper Attack and Destabilization, the other four blades are made of clear plastic and are not sloped, meant for Burst Attack. As part of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Doomscizor D3 features a gimmick; the colored blade has a translucent blade that freely slides to create a "Double Strike".
In theory the translucent blade is meant to slide back due to Centrifugal Force, then once the Beyblade slows down due to contact with the opponent, the translucent blade slides forward, due to moving at the Layer's original speed, and strikes the opponent a second time. In practice however, the translucent blade has too little mass to affect the opponent in any noticeable way and the Beyblade is most likely to rebound away from the opponent before the translucent blade has time to shift forward. Furthermore, to accommodate the gimmick, the colored blades are too thick and too shallow of an angle for their intended Upper Attack and Destabilization to be successful. Finally, the translucent blade fails to even clear the colored blade so it cannot make contact with the opponent at all.
Compared to its predecessors, Doomscizor D3 has a much more aggressive and recoil heavy design in order to give it greater Attack potential, making it ill-suited for the Defense and Stamina Combinations Deathscyther and Dark Deathscyther were infamous for and the blades are still compact which limits the damage the Layer can do, making Doomscizor D3 ill suited for Attack Combinations as well. Furthermore, Doomscizor D3 is incredibly unbalanced which diminishes its Stamina even further, while this can create some degree of Destabilization potential to make up for the shallow angle of the colored blades, other Layers such as Alter Chronos can do the same while holding greater Stamina.
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 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 KO resistance and Attack potential. However, like other heavy discs with high Outward Weight Distribution such as Gravity and Ring, the use of 8 severely decreases a Beyblade's Burst resistance as a trade off.
Disc Frame - Glaive
Main article: Disc Frame - Glaive
Glaive is a mostly round Disc Frame with two sharp, wave like protrusions on either side. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer in battle, the round shape of Glaive grants high Life After Death while the upwards direction of the protrusions ensure they do not scrape along the stadium floor. While Cross has greater Life After Death, Glaive is still comparable.
Performance Tip - Nothing
Main article: Performance Tip - Nothing
Nothing features a low angled, spring loaded cone shaped tip. In theory the tip is meant to prevent harsh impacts against the stadium floor from launch, preventing accidental Self-KOs from bouncing.
However, the gimmick means that the tip is unfixed and is capable of tilting somewhat which creates poor stability. This poor stability is further made dangerous by the molding of the cone which as a slightly raised lip around the center, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Eternal Wide Defense or Wave Wide Defense which when knocked off balance the lip creates a second point of contact, creating acceleration which reduces Stamina. As such, Nothing is outclassed in terms of Stamina by Revolve and Atomic.
- The recolored Doomscizor D3 Layer on Doomscizor D3 8Glaive Nothing is actually made like Shadow Doomscizor 2Vortex Hunter: the dark version of Daigo's Doomscizor D3 2Vortex Hunter used by Black Eye in an episode of Beyblade Burst Evolution.
- This combo exploits potential for Doomscizor D3 being used in Stamina Type Combinations due to Hasbro's altering of its weight distribution.
