Nothing (ナッシング, Nasshingu) is a Performance Tip released as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-79 Starter Drain Fafnir 8 Nothing on April 29th, 2017. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the SwitchStrike Starter Pack Fafnir F3 8 Nothing.
Nothing is a Performance Tip that features a low angled, spring loaded cone shaped tip. In theory, the spring-loaded tip is meant to prevent harsh impacts against the stadium floor from launches, preventing accidental Self-Knock-Outs from bouncing.
However, the gimmick means that the tip is unfixed and is capable of tilting somewhat which ends up creating poor stability. This 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.
While Nothing can minimize the chances of a miss-launch that would otherwise result in a Self-Knock-Out, the drawbacks of poor stability and Stamina drain from its two points of contact make Nothing outclassed by Revolve and Atomic.
As such, Nothing is suited for collection purposes only.
Differences in the Hasbro Version
Hasbro's Nothing is mostly unchanged except for the fact that the spring loaded tip is shorter which is meant to reduce instability. This affects performance positively, but the change is barely noticeable.
Because Hasbro's Nothing has almost identical performance to Takara Tomy's Nothing, it is also recommended for collection purposes only.
