Hyrus H2 Yell Needle is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in western countries as a Starter Pack for CAD$14.99 in Canada, USD$9.99 in the United States, and AUD$18.99 in Australia.
Energy Layer - Hyrus H2
Main article: Energy Layer - Hyrus H2
Hasbro's Hyrus H2 is a Defense Type Energy Layer that features four large blades, two of which are molded into the shape of bird heads.
While Hyrus H2 may seem round and thus ideal for Defense at first glance, upon closer inspection it's actually square in shape, each of the corners of this square shape create points of recoil making it unsuitable for Defense Combinations. While the Layer features moderately strong slopes, they are still unable to withstand the recoil that comes with the square shape making Hyrus H2 prone to losses by Burst. Furthermore, the square shape reduces Stamina in battle, making Hyrus H2 ill-suited for Stamina Combinations as well.
Forge Disc - Yell
Main article: Forge Disc - Yell
Yell features a ring with a wide diameter, greater than Spread and equal to Polish, and a thick metal star in the center to create a centralized weight, akin to Central. The centralized weight is meant to increase spin velocity which has numerous effects on Performance:
If used on Attack Combinations, the higher spin velocity will increase the force of impact. If used on Defense Combinations, the centralized weight will increase Knock-Out Resistance.
Combined with the wide, circular perimeter and the raised position of the ring, Yell will also grant high Life-After-Death and increase Precession time. However, the centralized weight creates numerous drawbacks as well:
The centralized weight will reduce movement speed in Attack Combinations making it ill-suited for Mobile Combinations and the lack of Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) gives Defense and Stamina Combinations poor spin retention.
Performance Tip - Needle
Main article: Performance Tip - Needle
Needle features a ball shaped tip at standard height covered with small studs and has four small tabs surrounding the center of the tip like Defense. The studded design is meant to increase friction with the stadium floor and the small tabs are meant to act as brakes by striking against the stadium floor, both to prevent KOs.
When in mint condition and launched with significant power, Needle moves around the stadium akin to an Attack Type for a short period of time before it moves and settles to the center of the stadium, like the Jog Ball Performance Tip from Metal Fight Beyblade. When the tip settles in the center of the stadium it will spin on very few of the studs and conserve Stamina, acting similarly to the stud of Fusion. When struck by an opposing Beyblade, more studs and the four tabs will come into contact with the curvature of the stadium floor, increasing friction and KO Defense at the cost of Stamina loss.
When worn however, the studs of the tip flatten down and create a smooth surface, creating a performance akin to Defense with greater Stamina and less initial roaming.
Depending on the launch strength, the initial movement can be used to avoid attacks from Beyblades in a banking pattern or it can bring the Beyblade too close to the edge and be vulnerable to KOs.
- Hyrus H2 appears to be based off of Horus, a sky god in ancient Egyptian mythology.
