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 - Rock

Main article: Fusion Wheel - Rock

Rock has six large protrusions with small, shallow gaps between each one. It also overhangs the Spin Track much like the original Leone Metal Wheel, although to a smaller extent. Rock is outclassed by later releases, with its weight being unable to compete with most Fusion Wheels, and its rounded shape being too passive to be any real threat in Attack combinations.

Spin Track - Rubber 145

Main article: Spin Track - Rubber 145

Rubber 145 (R145) consists of three wings made of a hard rubber. The concept behind the track was to deflect lower attackers and absorb impact. However, it suffers the same problems that WD145 does, in that it's possible for the attacker's Wheel to be caught in between the Wheel and R145, causing recoil and spin reduction in the process. In addition, the wide shape and the Track's small placement makes it scrape the Stadium floor and thus making it lose Stamina. For this reason, R145 is outclassed as a Defense Track by other options such as GB145, BD145, and 230.

Performance Tip - Wide Ball

Main article: Performance Tip - Wide Ball

Wide Ball (WB), as the name implies, is simply Ball with a larger surface. As a result, Wide Ball outclasses Ball in terms of defense. The greater surface area creates more movement compared to Ball. This is disadvantageous against Attack Type combinations, as it increases the chance of a knockout.



  • The Giraffe/Zurafa motif is based on the constellation "Camelopardalis", which is Greek for "giraffe", hence the name.
    • The actual Spirit is a qilin, a creature from Chinese mythology which has been historically associated with giraffes since the 14th century.
