Exceed Evil-eye Gravity Atomic (エクシードイビルアイ・グラビティ・アトミック, Ekushīdo Ibiruai Gurabiti Atomikku) is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in Japan on April 29th, 2017 for 972円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 6 Tornado Wyvern.4G.At.
Energy Layer - Exceed Evil-eye
Main article: Energy Layer - Exceed Evil-eye
Takara Tomy's Exceed Evil-eye is a Defense Type Energy Layer with the center of it featuring the head of a Horned Serpent and molding akin to the Iris of the Eye, representing the Layer's namesake; Evil-eye.
The Layer's perimeter is made up of six blades, three made of colored plastic and three made of clear plastic. The colored blades are wide and make up most of the perimeter, while the clear blades are small and party fill up the gaps in between the colored blades, creating a design akin to the Smash Turtle Attack Ring from the Original Plastic Generation.
Despite the resemblance, Exceed Evil-eye has poor performance due to the Layer's mediocre teeth and recoil inducing design caused the large gaps. However, the shape allows Exceed Evil-eye to act as a consistent counter against Maximum Garuda, catching into Maximum Garuda's notches and Bursting it, though such usefulness is niche.
Forge Disc - Gravity
Main article: Forge Disc - Gravity
Gravity has a thick, octagonal shape and bears designs that resemble steel plates on each of its eight segments. As with all Forge Discs, it has two tabs that protrude from the top and fit in the slots in the Energy Layer. These tabs are marked with a stylized G to identify the Forge Disc.
Gravity was tied with Heavy for the heaviest Forge Disc in the game, making it a solid choice for adding weight to the Beyblade and increasing its Knock-Out Defense. Compared to the rather compact Heavy, Gravity has a larger diameter and more of its weight packed around its perimeter, giving it arguably what was the best Stamina in the game and increasing the mobility of more aggressive Combinations with the Flywheel Effect. However, it has been outclassed by 7 for Stamina. The high spin momentum provided by Gravity's Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) means that the overall Beyblade will not lose much spin upon collision with an opponent, however that means that the force of the impact will instead be absorbed by the Energy Layer, causing it to skip teeth to cope with the shock.
Performance Tip - Atomic
Main article: Performance Tip - Atomic
Atomic is a Performance Tip that features a free-rotating ball tip, akin to its predecessor Orbit, surrounded by a four-tabbed, free-spinning ring. Unlike Orbit, the ball of Atomic is approximately 3.4 times larger in volume or 1.3 times wider in diameter. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's Knock-Out Defense by having greater surface area and friction. However, in practice, the free-rotating nature of the ball reduces most of the Knock-Out Defense given by the surface area of the ball. Like all other ball-based Performance Tips, the tabs around Atomic are meant to act as brakes against Knock-Outs at the cost of Stamina by striking against the stadium floor. However, the larger diameter makes such contact rare. If hard launched, the greater surface area creates a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing the Beyblade close to the Tornado Ridge.
While these features may imply that an Atomic Combination would be easy to Knock-Out, in reality the heavy weight of SwitchStrike/God Layers, Cho-Z Layers, Forge Discs and Atomic's own weight compensates for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free-rotating ball increases the Burst Resistance of a Defense Combination. However, for the Takara Tomy release of Atomic, its spring lock is noticeably weaker than Orbit's, making Atomic lag behind its predecessor in terms of Burst Resistance.
In addition to the Defense properties, Atomic features high Stamina and Spin-Equalization potential, as well as the free-rotating nature of the ball reduces friction with the stadium floor, as the wide ball tip will keep a Combination stable and thus prevents scraping, and the free-spinning ring increases Precession time and Life-After-Death.
