Metal Stone Face: Orojya
- Weight: 5.5 grams
Orojya depicts "Yamata no Orochi", or simply "Orochi"; the mythical 8-headed and 8-tailed dragon. It is designed such that three snakes, side-by-side, are glaring at the front. Each snake features their reptilian-like scales and reptilian eyes; all white with no visible pupils. They also have two sharp fangs nearby. The snake in the center curves to the right, in a slithering such manner; while the remaining two are parallel to one-another. All three snakes are purple with a yellow colour covering the cut, gaps, and everywhere else in the detail. It is all outlined in a thick black while on a Metal Stone Face.
Chrome Wheel: Orojya
- Weight: 28.49 grams
This Chrome Wheel consists of a ring circled by multiple snakes. These engraved serpents create small protrusions all around Orojya, like a gear. Following the characteristic of all Zero-G Beyblades, Orojya has a hole for the Crystal Wheel's orb to protrude into, and two snake heads encase it from each side with their fangs. Some swirly designs exist in the inner part of this Chrome Wheel, all the way down to the opposite side of the crystal, where a menacing face is formed. Made to resemble a snake's head in a front view, two evil eyes are engraved as well as small fangs near the edge of Orojya, and that big head's apparent mustaches are prolonged to become the many small serpents encircling the rest of the Chrome Wheel. This wheel could be useful for defense in the synchrom combo MSF-H/MSF Orojya Killerken GB145/ED145RS/CS. Also most parts are covered by serpents and/or sea snakes.
Crystal Wheel: Pirates
- Weight: 3.92 grams
- Weight: 1.5 grams
Bottom: Defense (D)
- 1 gram
This is a Defense Bottom, which acts as a wider version of a Sharp tip. When hit by an opponent, a Beyblade with this Bottom will have lessened recoil and will recover from attacks more efficiently than a Sharp Tip. However, while recovering, the Defense Bottom will cause the Beyblade to lose some Stamina, caused by the added friction.However, it is easier to knock over than WD, yet harder to knock over than SD.

- Pirates Orojya could be considered as a Dragon based Bey, due to it being based on the mythical creature "Yamata no Orochi" which was said to be a 8 headed and 8 tailed Dragon.
Pirates Orojya is based on the mythical creature, Yamata no Orochi. Yamata no Orochi (八岐の大蛇), or simply Orochi, was a Japanese dragon told in Izumo mythology of the Shinto religion, which was slain by Susanoo, the Shinto God of the Sea and Storm. Orochi had 8 heads and 8 tails and as such Yamata no Orochi literally meant "8-branched giant snake". Pirates Orojya references Yamata no Orochi by its motif, the eight snake-heads on the Orojya Chrome Wheel, as well as the large, Orojya face on the Chrome Wheel.
Pirates refers to the infamous bandits that commit piracy. As of which, is the act of robbery or criminal violence at sea. The name is fitting with Orojya and the Bey's owner, Eight Unabara because Susanoo was the God of Sea, who slayed Orojya, and Eito has an elemental likening to water; while Unabara (海原) is Japanese for the "sea".
