Salamander has a silver body that is appears quite large, thick, and detailed. There are designs of scales all around the Chrome Wheel; the scales of which give the Wheel a reptillian-like appearance and feel. There is also a design of a mythical salamander's neck, connecting two heads of the salamander. The salamander heads feature snouts with a beak-like jaws and a design protruding from the back of their heads. While what can also be seen, is the salamander's tail which goes over Salamander on its exterior. The tail is quite reptilian as well, featuring various scales and spikes on it and such. One last detail of Salamander is that various fire details can be seen at the the lower part of this Chrome Wheel. This Chrome Wheel has high Attack power as well as a good balance of defense and stamina.

Element Wheel - Thief

Main article: Element Wheel - Thief

Thief is a three-sided Element Wheel that has a flame-patterned wing design with rightward facing feathers. The Fire Element symbol is displayed on the Element Wheel. One of its three wings is larger than the others, which in theory creates an imbalance. In practice however, the effect on balance is negligible due to the Element Wheel's light weight. Like other Element Wheels, Thief is outclassed in every regard by a second Warrior Wheel in a Synchrome. In the WBO's MFB Limited Format, Thief finds use in Attack Combinations, as its three-sided shape synergizes with Warrior Wheels such as Phoenic. While such Combinations have heavier recoil than options such as the Pegasis Wheel, it is still a viable and versatile attacker.

Spin Track - 230

Main article: Spin Track - 230

230 is the tallest Spin Track released in the Metal Saga toyline. It was first released with Flame Byxis 230WD as part of the Maximum Series, and was advertised as the "Maximum Height" for Spin Tracks. 230 has six indents near the top that sharpen downwards to the middle of the Spin Track. 230 is rounder and thicker than other regular Spin Tracks with no gimmicks, in order to protect it structurally when it comes into contact with opposing Fusion Wheels. Its round and smooth shape results in significantly less recoil than if it were based on the traditional hexagonal Spin Track shape.

Since 230 is so tall, it can wobble at great lengths for extra Stamina, defeating various Stamina Type customizations with lower Tracks. From a defensive viewpoint, 230 uses its height as an advantage to protect itself from low incoming Attacks, by protecting the Fusion Wheel from major contact while using the reinforced plastic to absorb most of the shock. As a result of this, 230 can defeat most low Attack customizations under the 120 height when paired with other top-tier Defense parts.

230 also has some notable weaknesses, however. As a Defense Type Spin Track, 230 is extremely susceptible to tall Spin Track opposite spin Attack Type customizations. Additionally, 230 is outclassed by the likes of Triple Height 170 (TH170), which offers the same height and also the versatility of the height change gimmick.

Performance Tip - Wide Ball

Main article: Performance Tip - Wide Ball

Wide Ball (WB), as the name implies, is simply Ball with a larger surface. As a result, Wide Ball outclasses Ball in terms of defense. The greater surface area creates more movement compared to Ball. This is disadvantageous against Attack Type combinations, as it increases the chance of a knockout.

Trivia

  • Thief Saramanda is the first bey so far with a plain 230 Track to not use the 230WD combo.
