Yaeger Yggdrasil Gravity Yielding (イェーガーユグドラシル・グラビティ・イールディング, Yēgā Yugudorashiru Gurabiti Īrudingu) is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in Japan on July 16th, 2016 for 972円 as the prize Beyblade in Random Booster Vol. 3 Yaeger Yggdrasil.G.Y. It is the evolution of Yggdrasil Ring Gyro.
Energy Layer - Yaeger Yggdrasil
Main article: Energy Layer - Yaeger Yggdrasil
Takara Tomy's Yaeger Yggdrasil is a kite-shaped Stamina Type Energy Layer similar to its predecessor Yggdrasil. It is named after Yggdrasil, the tree of life in Norse mythology, however to represent the anime’s rendition of this Layer’s beast, two dragon heads are present on either side near the center of the Energy layer.
Most of the weight of Yaeger Yggdrasil is focused on its perimeter. While this may imply high Stamina potential, the kite like shape of the layer produces recoil which diminishes the Stamina of the layer, making it outclassed by Energy Layers like Deep Chaos and Screw Trident. The recoil produced by the kite-like shape is too low to be useful for Attack Combinations. Further more, Yaeger Yggdrasil features four teeth of short length which are unable to handle its recoil making it extremely prone to Bursting. Due to these reasons, Yaeger Yggdrasil has no competitive usage in any type of Combination.
Forge Disc - Gravity
Main article: Forge Disc - Gravity
Gravity has a thick, octagonal shape and bears designs that resemble steel plates on each of its eight segments. As with all Forge Discs, it has two tabs that protrude from the top and fit in the slots in the Energy Layer. These tabs are marked with a stylized G to identify the Forge Disc.
Gravity was tied with Heavy for the heaviest Forge Disc in the game, making it a solid choice for adding weight to the Beyblade and increasing its Knock-Out Defense. Compared to the rather compact Heavy, Gravity has a larger diameter and more of its weight packed around its perimeter, giving it arguably what was the best Stamina in the game and increasing the mobility of more aggressive Combinations with the Flywheel Effect. However, it has been outclassed by 7 for Stamina. The high spin momentum provided by Gravity's Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) means that the overall Beyblade will not lose much spin upon collision with an opponent, however that means that the force of the impact will instead be absorbed by the Energy Layer, causing it to skip teeth to cope with the shock.
Performance Tip - Yielding
Main article: Performance Tip - Yielding
Yielding features a cone shaped tip made of PolyOxyMethylene (POM) thermoplastic rather than traditional plastic, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Polish Defense. Yielding's gimmick is that the POM plastic has less friction against the stadium floor than traditional plastic, increasing a Combination's Stamina. Embossed into the top of the Performance Tip is a stylized 'Y' for easy differentiation.
Due to the lowered friction, Yielding yields high amounts of Stamina and procession time, however this low friction also brings lowered Knock-Out Resistance and Stability. The Stability issue is further exacerbated by the angle of the cone; unlike Metal Fight Beyblade's Defense Tip, the angle of Yielding is more acute, akin to Big Wide Defense, causing an increase in the risk of floor scrapes. It is possible to improve the Stability somewhat by wearing down the tip, however the low friction means that this takes time.
- Yaeger Yggdrasil is based from the German word "Jaeger", which means "hunter", and "Yggdrasil", the world tree connecting all the nine realms of Asgard, Midgard (Earth), Jotunheim, Alfheim, Nidavellir, Vanaheim, Niflheim, Muspelheim, and Hel in Norse mythology.
- Yaeger Yggdrasil's avatar resembles a cross between a tree and a giant turtle, a reference to the World Turtle from Hindu, Chinese and several North American mythologies.
