Hades Kerbecs BD145DS or Hell Kerbecs BD145DS (ヘルケルベクスBD145DS, Heru Kerubekusu BD145DS) is a Stamina Type Beyblade that appears in the anime and manga series Beyblade: Metal Masters. It was released by Takara Tomy as a Starter on December 28, 2010 in Japan, and in western countries as a Starter Pack in November 2011.
Face Bolt - Kerbecs

The Face Bolt depicts "Cerberus". In Greek mythology Cerberus was the three-headed hound of "Hades", who guarded the gates of Hell. The design features Cerberus' three heads, with each of the heads biting the chains going through the edges of their mouths.
Energy Ring - Kerbecs

Kerbecs has a three winged design like the Hades Fusion Wheel, with a notch separating each. Kerbecs' design is meant to compliment Hades, and has particular use in Defense and Stamina Type combinaions when paired with Hades. The design includes the chains associated with Kerbecs, as well as hellfire.
Fusion Wheel - Hades
Main article: Fusion Wheel - Hades
Hades is split into three wings resembling dog heads, and is 50 millimeters wide. Each of these are separated by a large gap meant to interact with Boost Disk 145 (BD145) in "Boost Mode", which fills in these gaps. This increases its utility in Stamina Type combinations. Without Boost Disk 145, the wings provide excellent Smash Attack, and thus Hades can find use in Attack Type combinations.
At the time of its release as part of the Maximum Series, Hades was the widest Fusion Wheel available (hence the "maximum width"), with the average Fusion Wheel diameter at the time being around ~45 millimeters. With the release of the 4D System however, 4D Metal Wheels such as Cosmic have equalled or surpassed Hades in width.
Spin Track - Boost Disk 145
Main article: Spin Track - Boost Disk 145
Boost Disk 145 is meant to interact with the Hades Fusion Wheel, and thus was the widest Spin Track released at the time. Boost Disk 145 features a mode change gimmick, where the disk can be removed and manually flipped to change between "Normal Mode" and "Boost Mode".
In Normal Mode (or "Attack Mode") the disk sits lower on the Spin Track, which often causes stadium floor scrapes due to the three downward facing protrusions. In addition, the gap created between the Fusion Wheel and disk causes poor balance and loss of spin. Boost Mode works exclusively with the Hades Fusion Wheel. The three protrusions, now facing upwards, fill in the gaps between the three blades of the Hades Fusion Wheel, removing any gaps between the Fusion Wheel and the Spin Track. As such, this Boost Mode configuration has found use in Defense and Stamina Type combinations.
Performance Tip - Defense Spike
Main article: Performance Tip - Defense Spike
Defense Spike is a hollowed out Defense (D) tip with a Spike (S) tip embedded inside of it, leaving a gap between the S tip and the outer D "ring". This is intended to create centrifugal force but it is not notable. Like most Defense Type Performance Tips, DS is able to maintain its balance well.
