Storm Pegasis Hurricane Atomic (ストームペガシス・ハリケーン・アトミック, Sutōmu Pegashisu Harikēn Atomikku) is a Defense Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It was released in Japan on October 19th, 2019 for 1080円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 17.

Forge Disc - Hurricane

Hurricane features a free-spinning ring that rotates around the disc. It is heavier than all of the Core Discs and most of the non-Core Discs, making it one of the heaviest non-Core Discs in the game. In theory, the free-spinning ring will block attacks by moving with the opponent's Layer and reduce recoil. In practice, this is not very effective, as the Layer of the opposing Beyblade rarely makes contact with the Forge Disc. However, Hurricane's free-spinning ring has an advantage: the free-spinning ring will minimize Stamina loss if a Hurricane combination is knocked over and scrapes the stadium. The free-spinning ring also supplements the Life After Death in Right-Spin combinations, since the ring creates slight Upper Force. Likewise, the ring will create Down Force in Left-Spin combinations, making a Left-Spin Hurricane combination more controllable. This makes Hurricane very versatile in any combination.
Performance Tip - Atomic
- Main article: Performance Tip - Atomic
Atomic is a Performance Tip that features a free-rotating ball tip, akin to its predecessor Orbit, surrounded by a four-tabbed, free-spinning ring. Unlike Orbit, the ball of Atomic is approximately 3.4 times larger in volume or 1.3 times wider in diameter. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's Knock-Out Defense by having greater surface area and friction. However, in practice, the free-rotating nature of the ball reduces most of the Knock-Out Defense given by the surface area of the ball. Like all other ball-based Performance Tips, the tabs around Atomic are meant to act as brakes against Knock-Outs at the cost of Stamina by striking against the stadium floor. However, the larger diameter makes such contact rare. If hard launched, the greater surface area creates a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing the Beyblade close to the Tornado Ridge.
While these features may imply that an Atomic Combination would be easy to Knock-Out, in reality the heavy weight of SwitchStrike/God Layers, Cho-Z Layers, Forge Discs and Atomic's own weight compensates for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free-rotating ball increases the Burst Resistance of a Defense Combination. However, for the Takara Tomy release of Atomic, its spring lock is noticeably weaker than Orbit's, making Atomic lag behind its predecessor in terms of Burst Resistance.
In addition to the Defense properties, Atomic features high Stamina and Spin-Equalization potential, as well as the free-rotating nature of the ball reduces friction with the stadium floor, as the wide ball tip will keep a Combination stable and thus prevents scraping, and the free-spinning ring increases Precession time and Life-After-Death.
