The Face Bolt depicts "Leo", one of the 88 constellations and the fifth astrological sign in the Zodiac. The letters "L", "E", "O" of Leone I have been replaced with Leo's paw, with a white star on the paw representing Regulus, the brightest object in the Leo constellation. Like Leone I, Leo appears to be wearing a crown. The version included with Fang Leone W105R²F Burning Claw Ver. appears to have an inflamed paw.
Energy Ring - Leone II

This Energy Ring resembles Leone I, with its bulky armor-like designs. However, there is now a trapezium-like design with squares and screw motifs, making the Energy Ring appear more sturdier. Takara Tomy classified this Energy Ring as a "4D Clear Wheel" due to trace amounts of iron dust in its BB-106 release, which was advertised as increasing the weight of the Energy Ring. However, despite these metal fillings, Leone II is a similar weight to Leone I, thus its performance is the same.

Fang is a 4D Metal Wheel that is comprised of a Metal Frame and Core. It consists of six protrusions of alternating widths, with one being wide, and the other being narrow and square. Fang has a mode change gimmick, where the Metal Frame can be flipped to change modes. The two modes are Defense Mode and Counter Mode. in Defense Mode the hollow side of the Metal Frame faces downwards, and the contact points are rounded. In Counter Mode, the hollow side faces up, revealing claws. The high recoil and Smash Attack makes Fang most useful in Attack Type combinations

Performance Tip - Wave Wide Defense
Main article: Performance Tip - Wave Wide Defense
Wave Wide Defense is an upgrade of Wide Defense (WD). W2D has a flat surface, with a spike in the center. However, compared to WD, W2D has worse balance, instead relying on the flat surface to counterattack. Eventually, the spike will wear out over time, making the Performance Tip much more aggressive.
