Poison Zurafa S130MB (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

Zurafa Facebolt

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

Weight: 29.8 grams Full Width: 46 mm Full Height: 9 mm Circumference Height: 5.3 mm Protrusion Distance: 4 mm Protrusion Width: 8 mm

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. This Recoil is worsened by the light weight of the Wheel, which allows it to be easily knocked around and KO'ed by opposing Beys. This means it has little to no use for Attack either. Due to these factors, Poison has absolutely no competitive use.

Spin Track: Shield 130 (S130)

{Main article: Spin Track - S130

Weight: 3.3 grams Maximum Width: 35.5 mm Minimum Width: 33.0 mm Full Height: 13.00 mm Arc between protrusions: 8.0 mm

Made only of plastic, S130 has a horizontal disk attached to its centre. This disk consists of eight arms linked by some relatively round webs of plastic, which overall forms an imperfect circle. In this release S130 is of a dark grey color.

S130's inferior weight compared to Tracks like BD145 and GB145 render it outclassed for Defense purposes. However, where this Track has found a home is in Attack combos. S130 adds much needed weight to an attacker without obscuring its contact points. Also, its mid-sized height allows Attack Metal Wheels to score hits on a number of opposing heights. This makes S130 viable to be used with some Attack Wheels, including VariAres and Flash.

Use In Attack Customization

S130 can be put to good use in the Flash combo MF-H Flash Escolpio/Pisces/Orion S130RF/R²F, adding a decent amount of weight to Flash without covering up contact points, and placing the Metal Wheel at the height where it is most effective in dealing hits, due to its design.

Performance Tip: Metal Ball (MB)

Main article: Performance Tip - MB

Weight: 1.4 gram Full Width: 15.91 mm Tip Width: 6.87 mm Full Height: 10.96 mm Tip Height: 7.90 mm

MB is a variation of the Ball tip, with its bottom surface made fully out of metal. It has a wide surface area and heavy weight, making it a very versatile tip. Being metal, it provides the low friction needed for longer endurance. Its lack of traction makes it very easy to KO and destabilize. As such, it has only found a home in a small number of combos.

Use in Balance Customization

MB is a vital piece in the Duo combo MF-H Duo Aquario/Cancer/Cygnus 230MB. This combo works as a wobbler combination. Due to the maximal height and the ball-shaped tip, the combo has the ability to wobble at extreme angles and recover. It uses destabilization and force grind to defeat opponents. Because of the nature of MB, its greatest weakness is Attack types however.

Use in Defense/Balance combo Customization

Although now outclassed, the combo MF-H Basalt ___ BD145MB was one of the first combinations to find competitive use with Metal Ball. This combo has good synergy which means that, as a whole, it works well together. Due to its heavy nature, it couldn’t be knocked out easily. Metal Ball also worked well with BD145 as it requires tall tips to avoid scraping. Lastly, this Bottom can go into aggressive movement patterns if launched a certain way, which works well with Basalt's nature to knock out and/or destabilize others combos.
