Right Artemis 4Proof Orbit (ライトアルテミス・フォープルーフ・オービット, Raito Arutemisu Fō Purūfu Ōbitto), stylized as Right αrtemis 4Proof Orbit, is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It was released in Japan on February 16th, 2019 for 993円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 14 Driger Fang.0.Xt.
Energy Layer - Right Artemis
Main article: Energy Layer - Right Artemis
Takara Tomy's Right Artemis is a Right-Spin Attack Type Energy Layer that features and overall square shaped design with six blades, akin to Wild Wyvern. The right side of the Layer features a face, meant to represent Artemis, the goddess of the moon in Greek and Roman mythology. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Right Artemis features metal in its design; lining the blades. The inclusion of metal makes the Layer heavier than most God Layers. Right Artemis also features a gimmick; like its predecessor Duo Artemis and its counterpart Left Apollos, the Layer can be split in half to form either Right Eclipse or Left Eclipse.
While the Layer's tall teeth, heavy weight and seemingly aggressive design may imply high Attack potential, the blades are very compact with little space in between, severely reducing Attack potential. Furthermore, the recoil Right Artemis does have makes it unsuitable for Defense or Stamina Combinations.
Due to the gimmick, Right Artemis is also incompatible with a Level Chip.
Forge Disc - 4
Main article: Forge Disc - 4
4, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features two protrusions, one molded into the shape of a "4" and the other molded into the shape of the Roman Numeral "IV". The protrusions extend further from the center more than other Core Discs which grants 4 high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and subsequent Stamina potential. As a Core Disc, 4 is comparatively heavier than regular Forge Discs such as Heavy and Gravity which grants higher Knock-Out Resistance and the ability to facilitate Disc Frames can add characteristics such as Life-After-Death with Cross or Glaive. While 7 has greater Stamina, 4's Stamina is still comparable.
Disc Frame - Proof
Main article: Disc Frame - Proof
Proof features a circle shape with a round shape, akin to Spread. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer, the relatively round shape of Proof grants the highest Life-After-Death out of all other Disc Frames in the metagame at the time of writing and outclasses Cross and Glaive in Stamina.
Performance Tip - Orbit
Main article: Performance Tip - Orbit
Orbit features a free rotating plastic ball tip with a diameter equal to Massive, surrounded by a three tabbed ring. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's Knock-Out Defense by having greater surface area and friction, however, in practice the free rotating nature of the ball reduces most of the Knock-Out Resistance given by the surface area of the ball. Like other ball based Defense Performance Tips, the tabs around Orbit are meant to act as brakes against Knock-Outs at the cost of Stamina by striking against the stadium floor, however, the large diameter makes such contact rare. If hard launched, Orbit creates an aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing the Beyblade to the Tornado Ridge.
While these features may imply that Orbit-based Combinations would be easy to Knock-Out, in reality the heavy weight of SwitchStrike/God Layers and Core Discs compensate for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free rotating tip increases the Burst Resistance of an Orbit-based Combination and Orbit consistently has a stronger spring lock than Atomic which further improves Burst Resistance.
In addition to the Defense properties, Orbit also features high Stamina as the free rotating nature reduces friction with the stadium floor, the wide ball tip keeps a Combination stable and thus prevents scraping.
