Ragnaruk Wing Defense (ラグナルク・ウイング・ディフェンス, Ragunaruku Uingu Difensu) is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It was released in Japan on September 19th, 2015 for 864円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 1 Trident Heavy Claw.
Energy Layer - Ragnaruk
Main article: Energy Layer - Ragnaruk
Takara Tomy's Ragnaruk is a rugged looking Energy Layer that bears a striking resemblance to Seaborg's Whale Attacker, featuring two flat, blunt protrusions with smaller, pointier trailing edges. Unlike most other Energy Layers that incorporate some sort of slope or relief, Ragnaruk has a nearly-uniform thickness throughout the Layer. The majority of Ragnaruk's weight is packed behind its two primary contact points, which, coupled with the shape of these protrusions, provide the Layer with a considerable amount of Burst Attack. However, these same features also subject Ragnaruk to large amounts of rotational recoil during a collision as well. As Ragnaruk has only three average sized teeth and one small tooth, it is unable to handle its own recoil and tends to Burst quite often, making it practically nonviable in competitive play.
Forge Disc - Wing
Main article: Forge Disc - Wing
Wing features a six-blade design. On the upper side of the Forge Disc, the letter W appears for easy differentiation from other Forge Discs.
The blades of Wing are meant to create Upper Force in Right-Spin and Down Force in Left-Spin. However, the small size of the blades makes any such effect negligible.
Due to its light weight and feeble relief that does not truly come in contact with opponents, Wing disadvantages any Beyblade it is part of.
Performance Tip - Defense
Main article: Performance Tip - Defense (Burst)
Defense features a Ball tip and sits at a standard track height. A protective disk sits halfway down the Performance Tip, and the Ball tip has four support ridges. The center of the Performance Tip also contains a shield decal to symbolize itself.
When simply spinning by itself, Defense behaves as a normal Ball tip. When struck however, the tabs will force the Beyblade back into an upright position after being knocked off balance and act as brakes to prevent Knock-Outs by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. While the ring may imply Defense potential akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's D125 track, it is positioned too low for any Burst System Beyblade to make contact with. However, the smooth perimeter of the ring does grant Life-After-Death potential.
