Kerbeus Wing Fusion (ケルベウス・ウイング・フュージョン, Kerubeusu Uingu Fyūjon) is a Balance Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It was released as a Booster in Japan on July 18th, 2015 for 864円.
Energy Layer - Kerbeus
Main article: Energy Layer - Kerbeus (Takara Tomy)
Takara Tomy's Kerbeus is a circular shaped Energy Layer designed for Defense. Kerbeus' center, as the name states, depicts a 3-headed dog-like monster named Cerberus spitting flames. Two of the heads represented by the colored plastic underneath the transparent casing are located on one side, while the third is located on the opposite side. Theoretically, this would leave the Energy Layer unbalanced, but in reality the effect is so minuscule that it shouldn't be considered a fault in competitive play. Kerbeus' rim has 16 protrusions, with half of the protrusions being larger. In theory, this characteristic would grind the opponent's Layer, but in reality it has the reverse effect and that makes it prone to loss by Out-Spin and the uneven surface adds recoil. Kerbeus does, however, have decent Stamina and Defense abilities granted by its circular shape.
It was particularly hard to Burst and had a mostly balanced design but, due to the release of newer Energy Layers, Kerbeus has been overshadowed. These are reasons which add to this Energy Layer's position as now outclassed in all categories.
Forge Disc - Wing
Main article: Forge Disc - Wing
Wing features a six-blade design. On the upper side of the Forge Disc, the letter W appears for easy differentiation from other Forge Discs.
The blades of Wing are meant to create Upper Force in Right-Spin and Down Force in Left-Spin. However, the small size of the blades makes any such effect negligible.
Due to its light weight and feeble relief that does not truly come in contact with opponents, Wing disadvantages any Beyblade it is part of.
Performance Tip - Fusion
Main article: Performance Tip - Fusion
Fusion features a plastic flat tip with a small diameter and a small protrusion in the center, akin to Flat Sharp from Metal Fight Beyblade, and sits at the standard height. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter "F" for easy differentiation from other Drivers.
When launched parallel to the stadium, Fusion will spin on the protrusion, creating a stable, Stamina-conserving spin. When knocked off balance by the opponent or launched at an angle, the flat tip will contact the stadium floor and create a movement pattern with the same speed as Accel before returning to balancing on the protrusion.
However the aggressive movement is unreliable as the protrusion can slow a Fusion Combination down in the center of the stadium or stop the movement entirely. Furthermore, the small size of the protrusion means that when a Fusion Combination slows down and lists, contact will be made with the flat base, severely reducing Stamina.
