The Genbu Shogun Face Bolt depicts "Genbu", or "Xuan Wu", the black tortoise with a snake coiling around it in Chinese mythology. The Shogun Face Bolt for it includes a comical illustration of a turtle shell with an eye peering from the hole.

As with all Shogun Face Bolts, the Hasbro release of Genbull is cross-shaped rather than the round diamond shape of its Takara Tomy Stone Face counterpart.

Warrior Wheel - Genbull

Sat atop a very circular base is a mostly hexagonal shape. Four straight lines, two on each side, create a design reminiscent of the Libra Wheel. Another mostly straight edge is built at the top of the Genbull Warrior Wheel, where the Crystal Wheel's orb is inserted. At the bottom, however, there is a small turtle head designed but it does not protrude that much from the overall circular shape of the real bottom of this Warrior Wheel.

Having a distal center of gravity, an overall above-average weight, a rather even weight distribution for a Warrior Wheel, and a relatively symmetrical, circular, smooth shape, Genbull has shown serious competitive use in Stamina customizations in both the Attack Type Beystadium and the Zero-G Attack Type Stadium when used with the TB and CS Bottoms and the TH170/SR200 Tracks (benefiting from TH170/SR200's optimal center of gravity), and possesses considerable defensive potential in tall/mid-height customizations as well.

Genbull's great weight and shape render it superior in the face of other competitive Stamina Metal Wheels such as Duo when used in a Zero-G Attack Type Stadium, for the sake of resisting Zero-G Attack types. Warrior Wheel combinations such as Killerken Genbull and Genbull Genbull dominate the Zero-G metagame where Stamina types are concerned due to the reasons stated above.

This Warrior Wheel's heavy weight, smooth outer edge, and inward focused center of gravity render it a very viable choice for mid-height defensive customizations as well, even out-performing Revizer in some instances. However, Genbull has considerable Recoil from below, and as such would not be an effective selection for the bottom Warrior Wheel on an E230-based defenders.

Element Wheel - Shinobi

Ninja is a flat Element Wheel with various curves and slanted protrusions. Ninja is intended to compliment the Salamander Warrior Wheel. In Crystal Up Mode, Ninja reveals a lot more relief, with long, angled curves that cover the more scaly part of Salamander, and a few circular shapes generally follow the Warrior Wheel's structure quite well. The mode change allows the Element Wheel to absorb the shocks, and changes its performance significantly.

130 is a Spin Track of medium height, primarily used for Defense Type combos. It is a basic all-around Spin Track that also has uses in Attack and Stamina Type combinations. The 130 height is also found in Spin Tracks like Shield 130 (S130) and Wing Attack 130 (WA130).

Performance Tip - Wave Wide Defense

Main article: Performance Tip - Wave Wide Defense

Wave Wide Defense (W2D) is an upgrade of Wide Defense (WD). Wave Wide Defense has a flat surface, with a spike in the center. Compared to its predecessor Wide Defense, Wave Wide Defense has slightly more raw Stamina, and an improvement in Life-After-Death (LAD), allowing it to perform better in Opposite-Spin matchups. However, the spike is prone to wearing quickly, making it more aggressive.
