- This article is about the Takara Tomy version. For the Hasbro version, see Ring - World (Hasbro).
World (ワールド, Wārudo) is a Ring released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Superking Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-172 Booster World Spriggan Unite' 2B on September 19th, 2020.
Takara Tomy's World is a Balance Type Ring that features an overall round perimeter with large gaps and two heads, meant to represent the Layer's namesake; a Spriggan, a legendary beast of Cornish Faery Lore. As part of the Superking Layer System,World also features gimmicks:
Due to the asymmetrical design of the Layer, World's performance changes depending on the spin direction.
In each of the different spin mode, the layer represent both of Shu's God Layer Beys, Right-Spin Mode represent the energy layer of Spriggan Requiem, while the Left-Spin Mode represent the energy layer of Legend Spriggan, the primary points of contact are the Burst-stoppers then obstruct the Disc, preventing the loss of the last click and preventing the World Combination from Bursting, due to the Layer's Dual-Spin nature, there are two sets of "Burst Stoppers"
While the blades of World in either spin direction are nearly identical to the blades of Legend Spriggan's Right-Spin Mode, World exhibits poor Attack potential. Due to the position of the Burst Stoppers gimmick, the blades are positioned on top of the Layer, and due to the Layer's thickness, the blades rarely, if ever, come into contact with the opponent. Furthermore, when the gimmick is activated, the "Stoppers" cover up half of the gaps between the blades, further reducing Attack potential.
As such, World is better suited for Spin-Equalization Combinations and, like its predecessor Spriggan Requiem, it is recommended to set the Layer to spin opposite to the opponent to maximize Defense and Stamina potential as there is too little recoil for Attack potential.
However, like its predecessors Legend Spriggan and Spriggan Requiem, in order to facilitate the Dual-Spin and Burst Stoppers gimmicks, has one weakness however. To facilitate the gimmick, similar to if a beys is able to recoil off the layer, the Burst Stoppers will retract and restore the stoppers to its original position.
- World is the first reversible Ring in the Superking System for dual spin-based Beyblades.
