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.
Energy Layer - Storm Pegasis
- Main article: Energy Layer - Storm Pegasis
Takara Tomy's Storm Pegasis is an Energy Layer that adapts the Pegasis I Face Bolt, Pegasis I Energy Ring, and Storm Fusion Wheel of the Metal Series' Hybrid Wheel System for the Burst System. As such it resembles the general shape of these parts, with a three-winged design that features moderate Smash Attack. The three parts are noninterchangeable and combined into a single piece. The Pegasis I motif adorns the center of the Energy Layer, with the words "Hybrid" and "Wheel" featured on the sides, referencing the Hybrid Wheel System. Compared to the original parts, the Storm Pegasis Energy Layer is noticeably wider - the "Fusion Wheel" portion of the Energy Layer is made of plastic, with metal lining the circumference.
Forge Disc - Hurricane
- Main article: Forge Disc - Hurricane (Takara Tomy)
Takara Tomy's Hurricane Forge Disc consists of a metal core and a plastic piece in the shape of a saw blade. The plastic piece has 16 protrusions in total, and is intended to free spin to deflect attacks when Hurricane makes contact with an opponent's Beyblade. In practice, such contact is rare, and thus the plastic piece only serves to scrape the stadium floor, reducing Stamina. Furthermore, Hurricane is one of the lightest among its contemporaries released in the Gatinko Layer System, having overall inferior Defense and Stamina compared to options such as Ratchet and Sting. These factors, combined with its inward weight distribution, make it impractical to use Hurricane over any other Forge Discs released in the Gatinko Layer System.
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. Compared to 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 large 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, the heavy weight of Energy Layers and Forge Discs released after the God Layer System, along with Atomic's own weight, compensates for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free-rotating ball increases the Burst Resistance of a Defense Combination. However, the Takara Tomy release of Atomic has noticeably weaker Burst Lock spring than Orbit, making Atomic lag behind its predecessor in terms of Burst Resistance.
In addition to its Defense properties, Atomic features high Stamina and Spin-Equalization potential. 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 prevent scraping. The free-spinning ring also increases Life-After-Death (LAD).
The Hasbro version of Atomic is mostly unchanged from its Takara Tomy counterpart. However, there are three variations of Hasbro's Atomic. The first variation, which debuted in the Wyvron W3 4Glaive Atomic Starter Pack, does not spin as freely as the second and third variations. The second variation, which debuted in the Quad Ring Combat Pack, has a better free-spinning ring than the first and a better molded free-rotating ball than the third variation. The third variation, which debuted in the Balkesh B3 2Bump Atomic Starter Pack, has the same amount of free-spin as the second variation, but differs by having a bump on the ball tip.
