Face Bolt - Gasher

The Face Bolt depicts "Cancer", the fourth astrological sign in the Zodiac. Cancer is one of the 88 constellations in space, and is depicted as a crab. The word "cancer" is displayed above the crab motif.
Cancer was renamed to "Gasher" by Hasbro for its releases. Accordingly, the word "cancer" was removed from the design, and the crab motif enlarged. Several spheres were also added to the background.
Energy Ring - Gasher

Gasher (or Cancer) is a round Energy Ring with a design representing crab claws. The slopes of the Energy Ring, and its heavy weight, give Gasher use in Defense Type combinations.
Fusion Wheel - Inferno
- Main article: Fusion Wheel - Inferno
Inferno is based on the Metal System Sagittario Wheel. As such, it is a round Fusion Wheel with two large crescents representing Sagittario's bows. Inferno finds use in Smash Attacker combinations, due to the high recoil created from the compacted weight that is focused around the edges of the Fusion Wheel. Inferno is however outclassed by numerous other Fusion Wheels for Smash Attack, and has little use in Stamina Type combinations.
Spin Track - Switch 145
- Main article: Spin Track - Switch 145
SW145 has three 'wings'. The gimmick of this Track is the ability to change from Attack to Defense by taking off the wings, and then putting them on the opposite way. The purpose of this is the ability to adapt to opponent Beys. In Attack mode, which is denoted by six grey claw-like stickers on the underside, the pointed ends of the Track are used for Smash Attack; meanwhile in Defense mode, shown by three triangular blue stickers, the edges are more rounded, in order to deflect opponent Beys. The modes are reversed for Left-Spin Beys. Testing has shown that SW145 is quite useful at attacking lower opponents in a similar fashion to H145 and R145. It is however outclassed for Defense purposes by GB145, BD145, and 230 due to the recoil it produces.
Performance Tip - Semi-Flat
- Main article: Performance Tip - Semi-Flat
Semi-Flat (SF) is a sharp tip with a flattened end. As a result, Semi-Flat displays a combination of Attack and Stamina qualities, moving in a semi-aggressive pattern. Because of this however, the two attributes are compromised, resulting in an average performance in both categories.
Semi-Flat produces a movement pattern that, while aggressive, is much slower than any flat Performance Tip. The increased friction with the stadium floor due to the wider tip both increases its Defense and Stamina in comparison to a bottom similar to Spike (S) or Eternal Spike (ES). However, it is in absolutely no competition with Performance Tips such as Wide Defense (WD) for Stamina or Rubber Spike (RS) for Defense.
Semi-Flat found a niche use in Destabilizer combinations, where a low Spin Track combined with Semi-Flat's balanced qualities allowed the Beyblade to destabilize the opposing Beyblade.
