Escolpio (エスコルピオ, Esukorupio) is a Wheel released by Takara Tomy as part of the Metal System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-24 Booster Escolpio WD145B on February 22nd, 2009.

Description

The Escolpio Wheel consists of two large scorpion tails connected at each end in a relatively circular shape. The top of each tail is adorned with red rectangles to resemble the divisions on a scorpion's body. Given the circular nature Escolpio has, it may seem suited for Defense and Stamina, as most defensive and endurance Wheels require an uninterrupted rounded shape, which Escolpio is close to having, save for the small crevices created by the lines dividing the sections of the tails. However, Escolpio is not a very good choice for Defense or Stamina despite its ideal shape. This is because the underside of this Wheel is completely hollow, like a bell. As such, it lacks the heavy weight necessary to perform well in either category.

Overall

Weighing 31 grams, Escolpio is among the lightest Wheels ever created. Even with a Metal Face, it simply does not maintain much of its spin velocity due to the light weight, and when hit, it easily loses the little balance it had, and it cannot counter. For Attack, there are no slopes, protrusions, spikes, or notches on Escolpio to supply any offense. The prototype of Escolpio, however, did have the stinger part of both tails highlighted on the sides of the Wheel, which could have at least provided some element of Attack. However, this element of the design ended up being filled in so that there is barely any relief left on the ends of the Wheel.

Being useless in all areas of the metagame since the day it was released, Escolpio is one of the worst Wheels ever created.

As such, Escolpio is recommended for collection purposes only.
