Judgement Pegasus 8'Glaive Keep' Metsu (ジャッジメントペガサス・エイトダッシュグレイブ・キープダッシュ・滅, Jajjimento Pegasasu Eito Dasshu Gureibu Kīpu Dasshu Metsu) is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It was released in Japan on October 19th, 2019 for 1080円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 17.
Gatinko Chip - Pegasus
- Main article: Gatinko Chip - Pegasus
Takara Tomy's Pegasus is a Gatinko Chip that depicts the mythological beast and one of the 88 constellations in space, Pegasus. The Pegasus Gatinko Chip follows the motif that began with the Pegasis line of Beyblades from the Metal Saga. A Pegasus' head appears front-and-centre besides its wings. Interestingly, the Pegasus head has taken a radical redesign from that of its Pegasis predecessors. Rather than taking a cartoon-esque stylized approach, it has become slightly realistic and edgier as well, with yellow eyes. Its snout has become slightly longer and its two nose-holes are smaller. A golden bladed feather crest adorns the Pegasus' head.
Pegasus' wings rest next to its head and is put into three sections on each wing, having six in total. The first, primary section sits at the bottom with a white hue transitioning into a light-blue one. In essence, it gifts the wings with a heavenly-like motif that has a very "angelic" profile. Other than this, Pegasus' head is incased in a seafoam green Gatinko Chip.
Layer Weight - Metsu
- Main article: Layer Weight - Metsu
Metsu is a Layer Weight with four hexagons, two on each side, resulting in a Z shape. Its weight is distributed at each of these hexagons, allowing it to synergize well with two-sided Layer Bases such as Judgement and Zwei. However, it is not as heavy as the Goku Layer Weight, and thus is outclassed in Attack Combinations. While it is lighter than the Ten Layer Weight, Metsu has a superior weight distribution for Attack Combinations, and thus can be used as a second choice Layer Weight if Goku is unavailable.

Forge Disc - 8'
- Main article: Forge Disc - 8'
8', like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. 8' is essentially a wider and lighter version of 8, with higher Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) due to its wider shape. As a result, 8' has higher Stamina Potential than its predecessor. Like 8, 8' features four protrusions on each side. Each of the protrusions features gaps, akin to Knuckle, which takes weight away from the center and creates high Outward Weight Distribution. However, like other heavy Forge Discs with high Outward Weight Distribution, the use of 8' decreases Burst Resistance as a trade off.
Disc Frame - Glaive
- Main article: Disc Frame - Glaive
Glaive is a mostly round Disc Frame with two sharp, wave like protrusions on either side. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer in battle, the round shape of Glaive grants high Life-After-Death while the upwards direction of the protrusions ensure they do not scrape along the stadium floor. While Cross has greater Life-After-Death, Glaive is still comparable.
