Face Bolt - Nemesis X

Main article: Face Bolt - Nemesis X

Unlike the original Prototype Nemesis, Hasbro's Proto Nemesis comes with a newly designed, original Face Bolt called Nemesis X. The Face Bolt depicts a skull-like design with a shadowy aura. This likely represents the spirit that appears in the anime, which did not yet have a form.

Energy Ring - Nemesis X

Main article: Energy Ring - Nemesis X

Based on the metal components of Prototype Nemesis, Nemesis X is a thick, three-sided metal Energy Ring. Nemesis X is only compatible with Hasbro's Proto Fusion Wheel. It features skull designs and is silver in color. Like all Metal Fury Hasbro remodels, Nemesis X has been hollowed out, significantly reducing its weight.

Fusion Wheel - Proto

Proto is a plastic Fusion Wheel that is only compatible with Hasbro's Nemesis X Energy Ring. Proto is the thinnest (and lightest) Fusion Wheel in the Metal Saga toyline.

Spin Track - Armor Defense 145

Main article: Spin Track - Armor Defense 145

Armor Defense 145 (AD145) is shaped like the head of a funnel, being round with two curved protrusions that line down in order to act as "armor". There are also two smaller protrusions between it, creating gaps. Like Gravity, even though Armor Defense 145 was intended for Defense Type combinations, it was overshadowed by Spin Tracks like GB145 and 230 as it cannot absorb hits as efficiently and is too light. With the introduction of BD145, this Track has been surpassed in Defense. In addition, Wing 145 (W145) has outclassed AD145 for all uses.

Performance Tip - Defense

Main article: Performance Tip - Defense

Defense (D), as the name implies, was the first Defense Type Performance Tip released in the Metal Saga series. Defense is similar to Spike, but is wider. Compared to the Stamina Type Spike, Defense actually has superior Stamina capabilities, with less recoil and more recovery. However, the added friction from the wider tip causes the Beyblade to lose Stamina during recovery.
