It is succeeded by Hopper 2 in the anime and Hopper Attack in the manga.

Attack Ring - Star Shape

Main article: Attack Ring - Star Shape

As the name suggests, Star Shape is in the shape of a star. It is one of the smallest ARs ever made. There is no competitive uses for Star Shape, except on WD Attack Customizations, which are essentially useless in competitive play as well.

Use in WD Attack Customization

Star Shape's only possible use is in WD Attacking customs.

  • AR: Star Shape (Death Driger)
  • WD: Wide Defense
  • SG: Neo Right SG (MG Core)
  • BB: SG Metal Flat 2 (Gaia Dragoon V)

Weight Disk - Eight Balance

The Balance WD has a weight which is between that of Wide Weight Disks and Heavy Weight Disks. Its mass is distributed well, and in theory would be used for both Defense and Stamina purposes. That being said, there are numerous other options which are better for those types, and even Balance types, which also in theory would benefit from this type of WD, have much better choices (such as Ten Heavy). Ten Balance is the heaviest out of all of the Balance weight disks, and generally speaking, is chosen over Six and Eight Balance when customizing.

Spin Gear - Right SG

Right Spin Gears allow for right spin when used in tandem with Right-Spin Shooters. In a Right-Spin Spin Gear, two tabs (situated close to the right sides of the Spin Gear) would attach to the Right-Spin Shooter, allowing a Beyblade to be spun clockwise.

They have plastic casing surrounding a metal ring and gear which is placed into the Blade Base and held in place by base clips. The core (centre pieces) is not interchangeable in Standard Spin Gears. Different variations have now been released that feature weights, bearings and even an engine inside the Spin Gear.

Blade Base - Jumping Base

The BB has a special gimmick that uses a spring to make the Bey jump two to three times at the start of battle. 1 of 3 tips can be attached to change modes, and it comes with a ball, flat, and sharp tip. The Takara and Hasbro versions vary slightly with the design of the spring.

The Blade Base was also used in the anime as the signature part of Hopper.
