Evil Befall UW145EWD or Killer Beafowl UW145EWD (キラービフォールUW145EWD, Kirā Bifōru UW145EWD) is a Balance Type Beyblade that appears in the anime and manga series Beyblade: Metal Masters. It was released by Takara Tomy in Random Booster Vol. 6 Killer Beafowl on December 28, 2010 in Japan, and in western countries as a Starter Pack in November 2011.
Face Bolt - Befall
The Face Bolt depicts "Pavo", one of the 88 constellations in space. Pavo is Latin and Spanish for "peacock" and is represented as such. The design features the Befall/Beafowl in a white outline while printed on a translucent violet face bolt.
Energy Ring - Befall
Befall is a translucent pink in color and features black arrow designs emulating the feathers of a peacock, opposite of each other; a total of eight. The arrows point right as well. Befall also has square-like sides between the wings. These sides feature very small gaps with circular, peacock details.
Fusion Wheel - Evil
Evil has a textured, bumpy, two-winged design that ends in two rounded edges. However, unlike its predecessor, it is considerably thinner even with a smaller amount of metal dropping below the base of the Fusion Wheel. Being so thin, the edges of each wing do not apply as much force as those of the Evil/Killer Gemios Fusion Wheel. As a result, Evil/Killer loses any of the potential Smash Attack the first incarnation had.
Spin Track - Upper Wing 145
Upper Wing 145 is a variation of ED145 and WD145 that as its name suggests, is to provide Upper Attack. UW145 is composed of three large wings that are very spiky and edgy in design. It has two Modes, "Attack Mode" and "Defense Mode". It can switched simply by removing the wings and flipping them. In Attack Mode, the wings are angled downwards, in a clockwise manner. In Defense Mode however, the wings are angled upwards, counter-clockwise. Although UW145 was stated to be able to conduct Upper Attack, this does not have any effect due to UW145 being placed under the Wheel where it does not have any known contact with the opposing Bey's Wheel. However, UW145's sharp points in Attack Mode can conduct Smash Attack, but the effect is, once again, negligible.
Overall, UW145 is not an outclassed Spin Track. Despite its name, it cannot conduct any Upper Attack at all, only Smash Attack, but this does not have much of an effect. Its wings can be used for Defense however, it has more stamina because of the up-force power, which performs opposite DF145 and T125. This may also reduce it defense power since UW145 adds almost no weight to the bey, and since the wings do not come in contact with regularly height beys, against regularly height beys the wings are overall quite useless.
Performance Tip - Eternal Wide Defense
Eternal Wide Defense (EWD) is a version of the Bearing series of Performance Tips. As it's name suggests, EWD is a variation of WD with a bearing-based gimmick. While retaining the same appearance as WD, EWD features a bearing implemented at the tip of it. This allows EWD for better balance and spin-retaining force. Unlike it's infamous counterpart ES, EWD does not suffer from the balance problems that ES contains due to EWD's wide shape to allow it to recover its balance. Overall, EWD is a great Performance Tip for Stamina amongst Tips such as WD, PD, EDS, and B:D. EWD also overrules WD in Stamina. EWD's only downside is that it's performance will eventually change once it has been worn out. Results like less grip on the stadium floor and being thrown all over the place by attack types will emerge.
