Kerbeus K4 7 Nothing, known as Guardian Kerbeus 7 Nothing (ガーディアンケルベウス・セブン・ナッシング, Gādian Kerubeusu Sebun Nasshingu) in Japan, is a Stamina Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It was released in Japan on December 28th, 2017 for 972円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 9 Beat Kukulcan.7U.Hn.
Energy Layer - Kerbeus K4
Main article: Energy Layer - Kerbeus K4
Kerbeus K4 is a Defense Type Energy Layer that features three dog heads along the perimeter, two from a downward profile and one from a side profile, akin to the Dragooon Metal Wheel from Zero-G Beyblade, meant to represent the Layer's namesake, the mythological three headed hound Cerberus. As part of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Kerbeus K4 features a gimmick; the chains connecting each head are made of a softer plastic, allowing them to push in to create "Bound Defense", akin to Jerk.
In theory the chains would cushion impact with the opponent and bolster KO and Burst resistance. In practice however, because the chains have hardly any flexibility at all, the gimmick fails to function as the impact is the same as if the chains were made of normal plastic. This, combined with the Japanese release's weak teeth, makes Guardian Kerbeus incredibly prone to Bursts.
Despite the high Burst risk, Guardian Kerbeus excels in Stamina Combinations, capable of defeating other Top-Tier Stamina and Defense Energy Layers such as Drain Fafnir and Maximum Garuda in direct battles.
Forge Disc - 7
Main article: Forge Disc - 7
7, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is an asymmetrical, elliptical disc that can facilitate a Disc Frame. 7 is designed similar to Gravity or Heavy, with seven designs jutting out that resemble the number "7". At first glance, the Disc looks unbalanced, but in reality, two of the sections on one side being halves makes it balanced. 7 is one of the heaviest Discs thus far, outclassed only by 10 and 0, and has a ideal weight distribution for Stamina Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential without the severe Burst Risk of 8. With the use of Disc Frames, 7 can be used to great effect in any Combination.
Performance Tip - Nothing
Main article: Performance Tip - Nothing
Nothing features a low angled, spring loaded cone shaped tip. In theory the tip is meant to prevent harsh impacts against the stadium floor from launch, preventing accidental Self-KOs from bouncing.
However, the gimmick means that the tip is unfixed and is capable of tilting somewhat which creates poor stability. This poor stability is further made dangerous by the molding of the cone which as a slightly raised lip around the center, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Eternal Wide Defense or Wave Wide Defense which when knocked off balance the lip creates a second point of contact, creating acceleration which reduces Stamina. As such, Nothing is outclassed in terms of Stamina by Revolve and Atomic.
