Face Bolt - Destroyer[]

The Destroyer Face Bolt depicts "Perseus", a Greek hero and one of the 88 constellations in space. In Greek mythology, Perseus slayed the gorgon "Medusa" by cutting off her head. He later used the head of Medusa to defeat "Cetus". The design displays a Greek gladiator helmet design, with the name "Perseus" written below it. When the Face Bolt is viewed upside down, it resembles the head of Medusa, a reference to Gravity Perseus' Special Move, Eyes of Medusa.

Energy Ring - Destroyer[]

Main article: Energy Ring - Destroyer

Destroyer is a Dual Spin Energy Ring designed to work in tandem with the Gravity Fusion Wheel. Destroyer features a mode change gimmick; when the Destroyer Energy Ring is rotated 180 degrees, it can switch between "Counter Mode" and "Defense Mode". Depending on the mode, the "eyes" of the Gravity Fusion Wheel will be covered by the Energy Ring.

The standard, "Defense" version of Destroyer features three longer, helmet-like protrusions, and three stubby protrusions between each of the longer ones. The difference between these enables the mode change; with the long "helmet" protrusions over the "eyes" of the Gravity Fusion Wheel, the Beyblade is in "Defense Mode", while the other mode, with the "eyes" under the short protrusions, is "Counter Mode".

Fusion Wheel - Gravity[]

Main article: Fusion Wheel - Gravity

Gravity is intended to be used with the Destroyer line of Energy Rings. As such, it features three curved pockets meant for a Destroyer Energy Ring to rest in. Gravity is a thick Fusion Wheel, and is dual spin, lacking the protrusions that usually prevent a Fusion Wheel from being used with the wrong direction launcher. When a Destroyer Energy Ring is rotated 180 degrees, Gravity Destroyer can switch between "Counter Mode" and "Defense Mode", covering the "eyes" of Gravity depending on the mode.

In Defense Mode, the Energy Ring covers the jagged protrusions, increasing metal on plastic contact, reducing recoil. In Counter Mode, these jagged protrusions are exposed, leading to high recoil and an increase in Smash Attack.

Spin Track - Armor Defense 145[]

Main article: Spin Track - Armor Defense 145

Armor Defense 145 (AD145) is shaped like the head of a funnel, being round with two curved protrusions that line down in order to act as "armor". There are also two smaller protrusions between it, creating gaps. Like Gravity, even though Armor Defense 145 was intended for Defense Type combinations, it was overshadowed by Spin Tracks like GB145 and 230 as it cannot absorb hits as efficiently and is too light. With the introduction of BD145, this Track has been surpassed in Defense. In addition, Wing 145 (W145) has outclassed AD145 for all uses.

Performance Tip - Wide Defense[]

Main article: Performance Tip - Wide Defense

Wide Defense (WD) retains the two curved holes D contained but are now thinner, smaller and found on the Sharp tip.

Being wider brings advantages and disadvantages to WD. An advantage is being able to conserve better Stamina than D and SD, due to the more surface area as well as being able to spin at a lower spin-rate that that of D or SD which cannot. A disadvantage however, is that it is worse at regaining balance than D. The wide shape gives WD a harder time to regain its balance whereas, D does it much easier. This should take into consideration when using a Spin Track such as 230 or TH170. D would be a better choice than WD as it would regain balance much easier to help cope with 230. However, while D can regain balance better, it cannot maintain it as well as WD, especially with the heights of 170 and above.

At release, WD has found quick use as a Stamina-Type Tip, much better than D and has become top-tier. Despite this however, as many more Performance Tips like AS, EWD, and B:D were released; they have overshadowed WD. EWD has also overshadowed WD due to EWD's bearing to regain balance better and much better Stamina. W²D performs basically the same as WD though but with worse balance but better attack.

Wide Defense (WD) has significant defensive capabilities as well, but because it still uses a form of sharp tip, its friction with the stadium floor is decreased, which as a result makes it easier to knock around than a Tip like WB which has much more friction with the stadium floor. But since it can recover quickly, it does not matter.

Some Bladers experience a fast movement from Wide Defense, allowing the Wide Defense tip with fast movement to be paired with high-recoil fusion wheels such as Vulcan, Beat, Fang, Spiral, Flash, or Variares, to create powerful, or even a 1-Hit KO Attack-type combos, or be paired with low-recoil fusion wheels such as Bakushin, Duo, Gravity (Perseus Stamina), Fusion, Wing, Death to create counter-attacking Defense-Type combos.
