Spin Steal or Rotation Absorption (回転吸収, Kaiten Kyūshū), as the name suggests, is a move that generally "steals" spin from the opposing Bey, and can slow down the rate of spin loss. It is usually a Left Spin Beyblade spin stealing from a Right Spin Beyblade, but a few Right Spin Beyblades can also Spin Steal with the addition of rubber.

The L-Drago lineage of Beyblades was the first to introduce spin stealing to the Metal Saga. While Lightning L-Drago 100HF appears to have some degree of spin steal, Meteo L-Drago LW105LF was the first Bey to feature rubber and the spin stealing technique was promoted by Takara Tomy. Its successor, L-Drago Destructor F:S, also features rubber on the Fusion Wheel.

Spin Stealing would later return in the Burst Series. The first Beyblade to feature this ability was Drain Fafnir 8 Nothing, which would display the ability with the Layer's rubber. Later, Dual-Spin Beys would also display the ability, with the first being Spryzen Requiem 0 Zeta. In the Beyblade Burst Surge and Beyblade Burst QuadDrive series, Right-Spin Beyblades could also display the ability, as Jet Wyvron Around Just 1D featured rubber on its Jet Ring to help against Left-Spinning Beys, and the same for Dynamite Belial Nexus Venture-2 with the F Gear attached.
