Vortex Ape is a Defense-type Beyblade and is Dunga's first Beyblade. It was released as part of the Magnacore System. This beyblade evolves into Vortex Ape 2.

Bit Chip (BC): Vortex Ape

Attack Ring (AR): War Ape

It has an attack ring and a sub-attack ring.

Weight Disk (WD): Eight Balance

Main article: Weight Disk - Eight Balance

14 grams

The Balance WD has a weight which is between that of Wide Weight Disks and Heavy Weight Disks. It's mass is distributed well, and in theory would be used for both Defense and Stamina purposes. That being said, there is numerous other options which are better for those types, and even Balance types which also in theory would benefit from this type of WD have much better choices (such as Ten Heavy). Ten Balance is the heaviest out of all of the Balance weight disks, and generally speaking, is chosen over Six and Eight Balance when Customizing.

Spin Gear (SG): Right Spin Gear

Main article: Spin Gear - Right SG

Right Spin Gears allow for right spin when used in tandem with Right-Spin Shooters. In a Right-Spin Spin Gear, two tabs (situated close to the right sides of the Spin Gear) would attach to the Right-Spin Shooter, allowing a Beyblade to be spun clockwise.

They have plastic casing surrounding a metal ring and gear which is placed into the Blade Base and held in place by base clips. The core (centre pieces) is not interchangeable in Standard Spin Gears. Different variations have now been released that feature weights, bearings and even an engine inside the Spin Gear.

Blade Base (BB): SG Sharp Base

Main article: Blade Base - SG Sharp Base

7 grams

This is often considered the successor of the Sharp Blade Base. The pointed tip allows for very little friction between the Beyblade and the Stadium surface which helps maintain high spin velocity. This offers very little movement and as such offers no Attack potential. This part is also often thrown off balance and can be easily toppled over. This in turn sacrifices all Defense ability. While this can be used as an advantage in some situations, there are far better choices than this part for Stamina types. This SG Sharp is different than other SG Sharp models. It has clips that extend far enough to make the outside of the SG Sharp base a perfect circle.
