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.

Overview

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.

Defense Types disperse impacts from attack and maintain a stationary, stable position in battle.

Balance Types combine qualities from Attack, Stamina, and Defense types.

Beyblade Top Types

Every top belongs to one of four combat categories (called Types), based on its primary battle strength. During battle, the Type Affinity of the competing Beys will determine how efficiently they battle each other, with the one holding an advantage effectively neutralizing the battle tactics of the other.

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.

Type Counters

Players that deploy Beyblades with countering types to that of their opponent's increase their chances of victory. It's important for Bladers to consider their Bey's Type when devising their strategy as the appropriate Type can counter your opponent's Beyblade enabling your Bey to fight more efficiently.

Traditionally, the Hasbro BB type icon attack Attack Type counters the Hasbro BB type logo stamina Stamina Type, the Hasbro BB type logo stamina Stamina Type counters the Hasbro BB type icon defense Defense Type, and the Hasbro BB type icon defense Defense Type counters the Hasbro BB type icon attack Attack Type.

  1. 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. However, since the release of Generation 2 Beyblades, Hasbro has adopted "Balance Type" as the official, descriptive term.
