Dread Fafnir Paradox Revolve Metsu (ドレッドファブニル・パラドックス・リボルブ・滅, Doreddo Fabunīru Paradokkusu Riboribu Metsu) is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It was released in Japan on December 26th, 2019 for 1100円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 18.

Gatinko Chip - Fafnir

Main article: Gatinko Chip - Fafnir
The motif is of the golden dragon, Fafnir. A left-spin Gatinko Chip with four standard locks.
— Official Description

Takara Tomy's Fafnir depicts the two dragons in the form of Fafnir, son of the dwarf king Hreidmar. The two dragons' claws grip the center hole of the Gatinko Chip. Fafnir has a standard weight for Gatinko Chips, and average Burst Resistance. Its average Burst Resistance is due to its four standard locks.

Layer Weight - Metsu

Main article: Layer Weight - Metsu
A Weight built into a Layer. A Weight that concentrates its weight in two places on the left and right to further enhance the Attack performance of a Base.
— Official Description

Metsu is a Layer Weight with four hexagons, two on each side, resulting in a Z shape. Its weight is distributed at each of these hexagons, allowing it to synergize well with two-sided Layer Bases such as Judgement and Zwei. However, it is not as heavy as the Goku Layer Weight, and thus is outclassed in Attack Combinations. While it is lighter than the Ten Layer Weight, Metsu has a superior weight distribution for Attack Combinations, and thus can be used as a second choice Layer Weight if Goku is unavailable.

Layer Base - Dread

Main article: Layer Base - Dread
A Defense Type Base that becomes circular each time it receives damage and parries the opponent's attacks to prevent bursts.
— Official Description

Similar to Arc Bahamut, Takara Tomy's Dread is a Left-Spin Defense Type Layer Base that features four clockwise blades that have six gaps in between them, and features a gimmick; a movable sub-layer.

The sub-layer moves in order to fill in the six gaps in between the blades and reduce recoil.

Forge Disc - Paradox

Main article: Forge Disc - Paradox
A Disc with a low center of gravity and a high centrifugal force due to its large diameter and downwards extending blades. It can only be turned inside out when combined with a Naked Base, and it has a shape that covers the Layer, allowing for a powerful Defense and counterattacks.
— Official Description

Paradox is a rather wide disc, consisting of two components. The first component is a rather small disc, which holds the prongs that insert into the layer, and is entirely made of plastic. The second is a rather wide ring, containing metal on the outer parts, as well as 5 plastic blades. These two parts allow for the gimmick of Paradox: The outer ring can be placed on the inner disc so that the blades either point upwards or downwards. The upwards mode, additionally, is only compatible with the Naked Layer Base.

The unfortunate width of these blades means that Paradox scrapes often on the lower oriented mode. Additionally, it is rather light compared to other options. This can be used for your advantage on LAD centric drivers, such as Rise and Mobius, where they want to stay up in order to equalize. However, where it truly shines is on the Naked Layer Base. In the upward mode, it compliments it perfectly, in a way that allows the Naked Base to be hit less. However, this setup is rather light, even for a Gatinko Beyblade.

Performance Tip - Revolve

Main article: Performance Tip - Revolve

Revolve features a sharp tip of a small diameter surrounded by a free spinning ring, akin to the Around Sharp Performance Tip from the Metal Fight Saga. The sharp tip of Revolve provides low friction with the stadium floor, resulting in high Stamina and Burst Defense properties. While the small diameter of the sharp tip may imply easy Destabilization, the wide diameter of the free spinning ring helps maintain Stability. The wide diameter of the ring also provides Revolve high Precession time which is useful against Opposite-Spin and Mobile Stamina Combinations. Furthermore, when launched at an angle, the free spinning ring of Revolve makes more contact with the stadium floor resulting in decent Knock-Out Resistance, however said Knock-Out Resistance still lags behind that of Orbit and Atomic due to the lower surface area and some Beyblades that are off center are easier to Burst. 

In the current metagame, Revolve is best suited for Pure Stamina Combinations due to the release of Atomic. However, Revolve's spring lock is stronger than that of Atomic and Orbit's, allowing it to be a safer choice for Layers with weak teeth such as Deep Chaos.

Due to considerable manufacturing variations, Bladers must be careful when using this Tip. Some variations of Revolve do not spin freely as they should, and the disc becomes very stiff to tilt. Others have the disc pop out after significant usage. For competitive use, the most free spinning one is ideal. The chances of obtaining one, however, are random.
