Evil-eye Wing Needle (イビルアイ・ウイング・ニードル, Ibiruai Uingu Niidoru) 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 the prize Beyblade of Random Booster Vol. 2 Evil-eye Wing Needle.
Energy Layer - Evil-eye
Main article: Energy Layer - Evil-eye
Takara Tomy's Evil-eye is a round Energy Layer designed for Defense that features a coiled serpent around the perimeter and molding around the center akin to the Iris of the eye, like the Layer's namesake; Evileye.
The perimeter features twelve blades, that at first glance appears to create a rough, high recoil design. However, the direction of the blades means that impacts are instead deflected off of Evil-eye, reducing recoil. Evil-eye also features four teeth of medium length, allowing the Layer to withstand the recoil it does produce.
Forge Disc - Wing
Main article: Forge Disc - Wing
Wing features a six-blade design. On the upper side of the Forge Disc, the letter W appears for easy differentiation from other Forge Discs.
The blades of Wing are meant to create Upper Force in Right-Spin and Down Force in Left-Spin. However, the small size of the blades makes any such effect negligible.
Due to its light weight and feeble relief that does not truly come in contact with opponents, Wing disadvantages any Beyblade it is part of.
Performance Tip - Needle
Main article: Performance Tip - Needle
Needle features a ball shaped tip at standard height covered with small studs and has four small tabs surrounding the center of the tip like Defense. The studded design is meant to increase friction with the stadium floor and the small tabs are meant to act as brakes by striking against the stadium floor, both to prevent Knock-Outs.
When in mint condition and launched with significant power, Needle moves around the stadium akin to an Attack Type for a short period of time before it moves and settles to the center of the stadium, like the Jog Ball Performance Tip from Metal Fight Beyblade. When the tip settles in the center of the stadium it will spin on very few of the studs and conserve Stamina, acting similarly to the stud of Fusion. When struck by an opposing Beyblade, more studs and the four tabs will come into contact with the curvature of the stadium floor, increasing friction and Knock-Out Defense at the cost of Stamina loss.
When worn however, the studs of the tip flatten down and create a smooth surface, creating a performance akin to Defense with greater Stamina and less initial roaming.
Depending on the launch strength, the initial movement can be used to avoid attacks from Beyblades in a banking pattern or it can bring the Beyblade too close to the edge and be vulnerable to Knock-Outs.
