Type (Japanese: タイプ or (がた)) refers to the 4 categories used to classify the combat properties and characteristics of a Beyblade and its parts by their primary behavior in battle.


The concept of Types provide players with archetypes upon which they can select or build a Beyblade that suits their individual playing style and combat preference. Becoming familiar with these Types can prove valuable to a player's strategy as a thorough knowledge of parts can assist in Beyblade customization and general battle strategy. This knowledge can also be invaluable in identifying the parts used in the customization of an opponent's Beyblade during inspection before a match. Below is a simple description of each of the basic types and their characteristics.

The Balance Type (Japanese: バランスタイプ, バランス(がた)) combines attributes from the other three Types for a Beyblade that is well-rounded and adaptable. While this affords them an impressive situational advantage, they generally lack any capability to exploit the weaknesses of other Types, mainly relying upon the skill and strategy of the Blader to be effective.

Type Affinity

All Beyblades Types typically share a Type Affinity (Japanese: タイプ相性) with one another via their Type classification. This determines their overall advantage (Japanese: 有利(ゆうり)) in a match-up depending on their customization in comparison to their opponent's.

  • While the term "Balance Type" has been the official term used by Takara Tomy since induction, Hasbro originally had used the terms "Combination Type" and "Combo Type" to classify this Type in the past. This practice only occurred during their original international and localized distribution until the end of production of their Hard Metal System toyline. With the release of their 2nd Generation Beyblades, Hasbro has since adopted "Balance Type" as an official term.
