Defense (ディフェンス, Difensu) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy and Hasbro as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-04 Starter Kerbeus Central Defense on July 18th, 2015. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Valtryek & Unicrest Dual Pack.

Description

Defense features a ball tip and sits at a standard height. A ring sits halfway down the Performance Tip, and the ball tip has four tabs. The tabs are intended to force the Defense Combination back into an upright position after being knocked off balance and act as brakes to prevent Knock-Outs by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. While the ring may imply Defense potential, it is positioned too low for any opposing Beyblade to make contact with. However, the smooth perimeter of the ring does grant Life-After-Death (LAD) potential.

Overall

At its release, as one of the first four Performance Tips, Defense was a versatile option with excellent Defense and Stamina properties which made it a key part in the metagame. However with the release of newer Performance Tips, Defense has become outclassed by Performance Tips such as Metal Universe and Atomic'.

As such, Defense is recommended for collection purposes only.
