Odax O2 Triple Xtreme, known as Obelisk Odin Triple Xtreme (オベリスクオーディン・トリプル・エクストリーム, Oberisuku Ōdin Toripuru Ekusutorīmu) in Japan, is an Attack Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released as a Booster in Japan on June 18th, 2016 for 550円 and was later released in western countries as a part of the Wyvron W2 & Odax O2 Dual Pack.
Energy Layer - Odax O2
Main article: Energy Layer - Odax O2
Odax O2, unlike its predecessor Odax, is an Attack Type Energy Layer that’s thick and angular in shape. Its design consists of a colored blade molded into the shape of a sword on either side, matching the weapon the Layer’s spirit wields; a large sword, two blades on either side that are made of both clear and colored plastic that run behind the sword-like blades, and two orb-like designs on either side that are also made of clear plastic and have a small protrusion on them. Surrounding the center of the Layer are two sideways armored heads on either side, with one of their eyes colored red, representing the Layer’s Takara Tomy namesake; Odin, father of Thor in Norse mythology.
Unlike Odax, Odax O2’s more aggressive design greatly resembles the Samurai Upper Attack Ring from the Hard Metal System (HMS), which at its time, was a Top-Tier Attack Ring. While the resemblance may imply high Attack potential, in practice, Odax O2’s overall shape ends up reducing some beneficial recoil. While this may imply that it is ill-suited for Attack Combinations, the aforementioned protrusions on the Layer’s orb-like designs imply high Burst Attack, as the protrusions can catch onto the protrusions of the opponent’s Layer and thus create enough recoil to Burst them. For Smash Attack, the blunt designs of the Layer’s sword-like blades can create enough recoil to potentially KO the opponent. However, while the Layer’s design does make it great for Attack Combinations, it is ill-suited for Defense and Stamina Combinations, as the recoil created by the Layer’s aggressive shape increases the risk of Bursting.
For the Takara Tomy release of Obelisk Odin, it features three teeth of tall length, allowing it to withstand its own recoil. Furthermore, when paired up with rubber-based Drivers such as Xtreme or Jolt, the Layer's tall teeth can compensate for the Performance Tip's resistance to the Layer’s spin.
Forge Disc - Triple
Main article: Forge Disc - Triple
Triple is a three-sided Forge Disc, which is circular, with a triangle stacked atop it creating knob protrusions. It has use in Attack, especially on three sided layers like Valkyrie since it focuses some weight around those three main protrusions, but it is not as useful as a Forge Disc like Gravity, as it is too light to be really effective in Attack, and too imbalanced to use in other Combinations.
Performance Tip - Xtreme
Main article: Performance Tip - Xtreme
Xtreme features a flat rubber tip with a circular depression in the center, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Rubber Flat, that sits at the standard height. Embossed on the top is a stylized "X" for easy differentiation.
Due to the surface area to friction ratio, Xtreme will create a highly aggressive, and if launched with a Banking Shoot, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Xtreme is faster than Accel, Zephyr and Assault but is as fast as or slower than Hold or a worn Variable. Xtreme's high speed allows for strong attacks and its high friction creates less chances of losing the Banking Pattern in battle making it one of the most common choices for Attack Combinations.
However, Xtreme has three major weaknesses. Firstly, the high friction of the rubber means that Xtreme has incredibly low Stamina, furthermore, the light weight of the Burst System compared to previous Systems means that there is less inertia, exacerbating the Stamina issue further. Secondly, the high friction also means that Xtreme resists changes to the Beyblade's spin from contact with the opponent, thus more force is transferred the teeth in Takara Tomy Layers or the slopes in Hasbro Layers, increasing the chances of Self-Bursts. Lastly, Xtreme will wear down with use, decreasing its aggression with little to no improvement to the tip's Stamina, meaning that multiple copies much be purchased in order to replace worn ones.
In the anime, Obelisk Odin Triple Xtreme belongs to Orochi Ginba, and is known as Omni Odax Triple Xtreme in the English dub. Orochi first uses Omni Odax during the regional tournament and demonstrated its power by bursting numerous opponents. Eventually, Omni Odax goes up against Shu Kurenai's Spryzen S2 Knuckle Unite, where he almost bursts his opponent in the first round but ultimately loses. During this match, it is stated by Daigo that the Xtreme Performance Tip and Triple Force Disc give Omni Odax amazing speed and movement, resulting in incredible striking power even amongst attack types. Orochi and Omni Odax later partake in the wildcard tournament and the team match portion of the Nationals as a part of Zac's team.
- Odax's Japanese name, Obelisk Odin, is based on "obelisk", a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape at the top, and Odin, the Norse god of wisdom, poetry, war, death, divination, and magic, king of the Aesir and ruler of Asgard.
- Odax's avatar enforces the reference due to a scar on its helmet's left side and the left eye gone, leaving only the right shade of magenta eye.
