Poison Zurafa S130MB (also known as Poison Giraffe S130MB in Japan) is a Defense Type Beyblade originally released in the Attack and Defense Set. It was released separately by Hasbro. This Beyblade has recommended parts, specifically S130 and MB.
Face Bolt: Zurafa
The Face Bolt depicts a Qilin. The Qilin or Kirin/Kyrin, was a mystical hooved Chinese chimerical creature known throughout East Asian cultures. It is a good omen that brings "rui" (serenity or prosperity) and is often depicted with fire all over its body. The design is a green Qilin with "GIRAFFE" across it.
Energy Ring: Zurafa
Main article: Energy Ring - Zurafa
Zurafa is an elliptical Energy Ring featuring a scale-like relief on its interior, an opaque flame-like design along the points of the ellipse, and a small protrusion on either side. Zurafa’s uneven weight distribution and non-circular shape cause it to be outclassed by Gasher, Cygnus, and Darkhelm for Stamina and Defense. While one might guess that it pairs well with several Attack-type Fusion Wheels due to revealing or putting weight behind their contact points, this is only the case for the outclassed Vulcan Fusion Wheel, and Zurafa does not perform well on the more powerful Flash when compared to Scorpio, Orion, and Gemios.
Fusion Wheel: Poison
Main article: Fusion Wheel - Poison
Poison has fifteen rectangular protrusions on its circumference, each the same size and about 4 mm apart at the widest point. While this is not wide enough to provide useful Smash Attack, it still produces relatively large amounts of Recoil, making this part useless for Defense or Stamina. Furthermore, similar to Flame, the Metal Wheel is raised at the base, exposing the Track to opposing Beys, making it even less useful for Defense purposes.
Spin Track: Shield 130 (S130)
Main article: Spin Track - S130
Shield 130 (S130) is a Spin Track with a horizontal disk attached to its center. This disk consists of eight "arms" linked by plastic, forming an imperfect circle. Shield 130 is lighter than Spin Tracks like Boost Disk 145 and Gravity Ball 145, and thus are outclassed for Defense combinations. However, this Spin Track has found use in Attack combinations where it can add weight without getting in the way of contact points. Its medium height also allows it to score hits on higher Spin Tracks of opposing Beys.
Performance Tip: Metal Ball (MB)
Main article: Performance Tip - MB
Metal Ball (MB) is a variation of Ball, with its bottom surface made of metal. It has a wide surface area and heavy weight, making it a very versatile tip. The metal surface provides the low friction needed for longer endurance. However, its lack of traction makes it very easy to knockout and destabilize.
- Poison Zurafa is the first Beyblade to have MB (the second being L-Drago Guardian S130MB) and S130 (the others being Jade Jupiter S130RB and L-Drago Guardian S130MB).
- Out of the entire Beyblade Deck Set: Attack & Defense set, Poison Zurafa was the only Bey that did not make an anime appearance.
