Spiral Lyre ED145MF (known in Japan as Screw Lyra ED145MF) is an Attack Type Beyblade that appears in the Beyblade: Metal Fury anime series. It was released in Random Booster Vol. 8 Jade Jupiter on August 6, 2011 in Japan. It is owned by Toby. It was released by Hasbro in a single pack around June 2012.
Face Bolt: Lyra/Lyre
The Face Bolt depicts "Lyra", one of the 88 space constellations. It's represented by an eagle carrying a Lyra, either on it's wings or in its beak. In Greek mythology, a musician named Orpheus was killed by the female follower of Dionysu, the Maenads. Upon his death, his lyre was thrown into a river, after which the Zeus, the God of the Sky and Thunder, sent an eagle to retrieve the lyre and ordered both the Lyre and Orpheus to be placed in the sky as a constellation. The design features a red and black lyre with eyes and flaming strings on a silver Face Bolt.
Energy Ring: Lyra/Lyre
Lyre appears to have an unusual appearance, with many curves it gives it a lyre-like appearance. Lyre's apperance makes it seem like it is unbalanced because the spirals are mirrored. If you look at the Pegasus III energy ring, for example, the wings are all curved to the left but if you look on the Lyra energy ring, the left spiral, it's curved to the left while the right spiral is curved to the right. This is the first energy ring to have mirrored designs. Small circular-like spheres appear on the Ring's top and bottom. The Energy Ring is black with a translucent silver on the Ring's sides with red characters appearing near the spheres. This Lyra Ring is released in black.
Attack: 2 - Defense: 5 - Stamina: 0
Fusion Wheel: Screw/Spiral
- Weight: 34.51 grams
Spiral has three distorted wing-like forms, each with an upward curved spike. It was said to have the best Upper Attack of any Fusion Wheel. It is one of the best non 4D attack wheel with lots of Stamina due to something with airflow as shown on the box package. If paired with the correct Energy Ring/Track, Spiral may be used in super-effective Attack combos such as Spiral Tempo D125RF.
Attack: 5.5 - Defense: 1 - Stamina: 0.5
Spin Track - Eternal Defense 145
- Main article: Spin Track - Eternal Defense 145
Eternal Defense 145 (ED145) features three "wings" that can freely spin around the Spin Track. The wings and overall design are similar to Wide Defense 145 (WD145). Because of the wings' free spinning nature, Eternal Defense 145 mainly finds use in Defense Type combinations. However, Eternal Defense 145 is not as effective as others such as Boost Disk 145 (BD145), or even Claw 145 (C145), as it is unable to absorb hits effectively. The wings lack the mechanism of a bearing, hence creating friction between the wings and body of the Spin Track, resulting in less hit absorption.
Performance Tip - Metal Flat
- Main article: Performance Tip - Metal Flat
Metal Flat (MF), as the name implies, is a flat tip made of metal, giving it an aggressive movement. However, since metal has more traction than plastic flat tips, Metal Flat has more speed due to less friction. However, this means Metal Flat has considerably less Defense. This can be mitigated with a Defense Type Spin Track like Eternal Defense 145 (ED145). In addition, unlike its plastic counterparts, Metal Flat can keep the sliding shoot pattern. Metal Flat also offers greater control and Stamina over its rubber counterparts such as Rubber Flat (RF), but less aggressive movement and recoil control. Due to its aggressive movement and Stamina, Metal Flat also finds use in Tornado Staller combinations.
Screw Lyra ED145MF
- Spiral Lyra has similarities with Twisted Tempo 145WD and Spiral Capricorn 90MF. First, the Lyre ring is about the same gray colour as Tempo, which used to be Faust/Toby's bey. Second, Like Spiral Capricorn, Lyre uses Spiral and MF. This may be a reference to some beys that were important to Toby as Faust.
- It's the 2nd Bey to have a Screw / Spiral Fusion / Metal Wheel and a MF Bottom / Performance Tip. The 1st was Spiral Capricorne 90MF.
