Diablo (ディアブロ, Diaburo) is a Fusion Wheel released by Takara Tomy as part of the 4D System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-122 Starter Diablo Nemesis X:D on December 27, 2011. It debuted in western countries with the release of the Spark FX Diablo Nemesis X:D Starter Pack in December 2012.

Description

Diablo is the heaviest Fusion Wheel ever released in the Metal Saga toyline, weighing 51 grams. Like the Nemesis A Face Bolt and Energy Ring, Diablo incorporates design elements from other Metal Fury Beys into its design. Diablo was also the first Fusion Wheel to feature a free-spinning gimmick. Like other 4D Metal Wheels, Diablo features a mode change gimmick by changing the position of the Metal Frame on the Core. In "Attack Mode", the Metal Frame is in place, and the X Drive 4D Bottom can be changed manually.

In "Ultimate Balance Mode", the Metal Frame is upside down and the Energy Ring is exposed. As the Metal Frame rests in between the Core and the 4D Bottom when in Ultimate Balance Mode, it can rotate freely. The Metal Frame has three positions that it changes between when impacting an opposing Bey. These positions push down on the pins of the X Drive 4D Bottom, changing the tip automatically.

Of the two modes, Attack Mode is considered superior as it allows Diablo to interact with parts other than the outclassed X Drive, as well as having high Attack power. The free-spinning Metal Frame of Ultimate Balance Mode would theoretically provide greater Stamina, but the disturbance caused on impact would make any Stamina gains null. Despite Diablo's weight, it is most suited for Attack and Balance Type combinations rather than Defense or Stamina Types. The aggressive design, while not enough to facilitate decent Smash Attack, has found use in Balance Type combinations making use of its Attack and Defense properties

Metal Frame

Diablo's Metal Frame design consists of the heads of Leone, Lynx, and Orion. It is a circular Metal Frame, and can interact with the Core to facilitate a mode change.

Core

  • Weight: 26 grams

Diablo's Core is a circular design that borrows elements from other Metal Fury designs. It is thick and bulky, contributing to Diablo's Defense capabilities.
