|Gravity Destroyer AD145WD|
|Also known as:||Gravity Perseus AD145WD|
|First appearance: (Anime)||Beyblade: Metal Masters episode 12: The Bey With a Hero's Name|
|First appearance: (Manga)||N/A|
Takara Tomy's Gravity Perseus comes with a special L - R BeyLauncher as Gravity Perseus has the ability to spin both left and right. By removing the cap, two sides of the Launcher can be seen, a blue side spinning to the right and a white side spinning to the left. As an extra, you can smear the words "left spin" and "right spin" to make the words clearer on the L-R Launcher.
Face Bolt: Destroyer/Perseus
The Face Bolt depicts "Perseus", one of the 88 constellations in space. In Greek mythology, Perseus was a Greek hero who slayed the Gorgon, Medusa and saved the princess, Andromeda from a sea monster sent by the Greek God of Sea, Poseidon. Despite it representing Perseus, the design showcases the helmet of a Roman gladiator with the name, "Perseus" beneath it, while on a purple Face Bolt.
Energy Ring: Destroyer/Perseus
- Weight: 2.7 grams
Destroyer is unlike any other Energy Rings, in that it does not contain any plastic which may block the prongs on left and right-spin Launchers from attaching. Due to this, it gives it the ability to spin both left and right unlike most Beys which are only right-spin. Just like the L-Drago series, Destroyer can be rotated 180 degrees to change between two modes, "Defense Mode" and "Counter Mode". There are three protrusions resulting in a triangle-like design. It is only usable with Gravity and is black with purple highlights.
Fusion Wheel: Gravity
- Weight: 33.8 grams
Gravity is only compatible with the Perseus Energy Ring. With this, it allows players to change between four different modes, "Right-Spin Defense", Left-Spin Defense", "Right-Spin Counter", and "Left-Spin Counter". With the six indents the Energy Ring fits through, this gives it promiment Smash Attack capability. In Defense-Mode, Perseus fits into the first three indents and the red stickers are visible turning the contact points to three. In Counter-Mode, Perseus covers the last three indents and covers the red stickers, giving six contact points. Stronger and consistent Attack is enabled due to the six contact points. It is more powerful in right-spin with great Smash Attack.
It is quite heavy, but has too much recoil for Defense. Instead, its use is found in Attack, in Left Spin Counter Mode. But since Left Spin Attack does so well against Right Spin Defense, you could use it in Left Spin Defense Mode with Metal Face Gravity Perseus GB145/TH170MB/RS. However, back to Attack, Metal Face Gravity Perseus R145/BD145/TR145/UW145RF can defeat 230 Defense combos, and at 85 height, that combo is very good at attack in general. It is a tier 1 for Attack, however it is not used at all in Defense, even Rock being shown better. It is gun-metallic with red highlights.
Spin Track: Armor Defense 145 (AD145)
- Weight: 2.8 grams
Armor Defense 145 is shaped like a head of a funnel, all round with edges lining the sides all around. Despite its name, it is overshadowed by other Defense Tracks such as 230 and Gravity Ball 145, as being heavily light when comapred to 230 and small in comparison to Gravity Ball 145 which will not absorb hits as 230. Despite this, it is well suited for Stamina, because of its outward weight distribution.
It is like a shield for Perseus. It is the third highest Track along with its variants. It is commonly used for stamina types because of its round shape. AD145 has excellent stamina and can be used in a top-tier stamina combo Earth/Burn Aquario/Bull AD145PD.

This brings numerous advantages, but also some disadvantages when compared to the other “Defense” Performance Tips, specifically D. The advantages include its ability for abnormally long procession times due to its massive width that reaches the edge of the Performance Tip's perimeter. This allows it to wobble at a significantly larger angle for a longer period of time than D, and at a much lower spin rate. However, depending on the position of the Beyblade using WD and the spin rate of the opponent, this can be disadvantageous because of how easy it becomes to knock over the precessing WD custom. This low spin rate towards the end of the battle is created because in the process of wobbling at such a large angle, more friction is made with the stadium floor, thus decreasing its Stamina. Nevertheless, this is more often an advantage than it is a disadvantage.
Newer parts such as CS, EDS and B:D have overshadowed WD to some degree: CS and EDS due to their ability to be paired with the popular BD145 Spin Track without scraping, and B:D because of its height and even longer procession times, but WD is still one of the best pure Stamina Bottoms available. However, when selecting high Spin Tracks such as TH170 and 230, WD's tendency to wobble at larger angles should be kept in mind, as its extreme procession can often become problematic.
Although the name suggests defensive characteristics, WD does not possess any inherent defensive qualities. However, its proficiency can be increased significantly when facing left-spin Attackers through the utilization of the Weak Shooting technique.
Use in Stamina customization
WD is arguably the best of the “Defense” series of Spin Tracks, and its effectiveness can be utilized in the custom Phantom Cancer/Cygnus W145WD.
Attack: 0 - Defense: 5 - Stamina: 2
- Hasbro's release of Gravity Destroyer comes with a simple Right Spin Light Launcher. It is possible that Hasbro did this to encourage people to buy the Rip Gauge Launcher, which can spin Left-spin and Rright-spin Beys.
- In Beyblade: Metal Masters Julian Konzern states that The hero Destroyer defeated the monster Medusa, when in the real myth, The hero's name was Perseus.
