Wide Defense or WD is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-47 Starter Earth Aquila 145WD on September 19, 2009.


Wide Defense, as its name implies, is the widest (along with Wave Wide Defense and Eternal Wide Defense) of the "Defense" series of Performance Tips (D, SD, WD, W2D, EWD and PD). The wide surface area prevents the Beyblade from being knocked over easily. In addition, it is able to wobble at a larger angle and for a longer period of time than Defense. However, low spin rate is created towards the end of a battle because in the process of wobbling at such a large angle, more friction is made with the stadium floor, thus decreasing its stamina. Although its name suggests defensive characteristics, WD does not possess any inherent defensive qualities. It finds most use in providing increased stamina in combos.
