Odin Oval Fusion (オーディン・オーバル・フュージョン, Ōdin Ōbaru Fyūjon) is a Balance Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It was released in Japan on December 26th, 2015 for 864円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 2 Evil-eye Wing Needle.
Energy Layer - Odin

Takara Tomy's Odin is an elliptical Energy Layer that features three sloped blades on the longer sides and the center features a face on either side with only one eye colored red; meant to represent Odin, father of Thor in Norse mythology.
While elliptical shapes normally generate high recoil, the sloped blades act like those found on Wyvern; deflecting attacks and reducing recoil. Furthermore the elliptical shape concentrates this Layer's weight onto two sides creating a high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and Flywheel Effect, giving Odin comparable stamina to Deathscyther. Odin features three teeth of medium length allowing it to withstand most of the recoil that isn't deflected by the blades the elliptical shape produces. However, like other pre-Xcalibur Layers, Odin's teeth will wear down quickly with use, meaning that multiple copies must be purchased to replace ones that have worn down.
There are two mold variations of Odin that have been released. The second mold reinforces one side increasing the weight by 0.2 grams and making the Layer slightly off balanced. However this does little to affect performance.
Forge Disc - Oval

Oval, like the name implies, is shaped like an oval. Os appear on the upper side of the Forge Disc as well for easy recognition. In theory, Oval would provide extra momentum to the Beyblade's spin by spreading the weight at two opposite sides. However, its underside is mostly hollowed out, making it the second lightest Forge Disc released, the first being 12. Its odd shape only ends up hindering the Beyblade's Stability, making the Combination using it precess dangerously the moment another Beyblade hits it. Even for Niche Combinations such as Hop Attackers using Quake, Oval only poses a risk of Destabilization, and it cannot make up for it by any significant aid in Attack.
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.
