The Face Bolt depicts Perseus, one of the 88 constellations in space. In Greek language Perseus means "hero". In Greek mythology, Perseus was a hero who slayed the evil gorgon Medusa by cutting off her head. He used the head of Medusa (which turned whoever looked at her eyes to stone) to defeat the sea monster, Cetus sent by the God of the of Sea, Poseidon, and saved the Princess Andromeda from the monster. Despite it representing Perseus, the design showcases the helmet of a Roman gladiator with the name "Perseus", beneath it in a blurred manner colored white, while tattooed on a translucent, purple Face Bolt. When the Perseus Face Bolt is up side down, it resembles Medusa, the Mythological Greek gorgon with snakes for hair. It also bears a close resemblance to the Variares face bolt. You can read the word "PERSEUS" under the helmet.
Energy Ring: Destroyer
Weight: 2.7 grams
The Destroyer/Perseus Energy Ring is a translucent black with purple highlights, however, the Gravity Demolition version is orange. Unlike any other Energy Ring, Destroyer is the only ring that does not use any plastic designed to block the prongs on Right and Left-Spin Launchers. This allows it to be used with Gravity for Dual-Spin. Also, like the L-Drago Beys, it can be rotated 180 degrees to switch between Defense Mode and Counter Mode. Destroyer has three-protrusions that form a triangular-like shape, with three curved protrusions between it. This Energy Ring only fits properly on the Gravity Fusion Wheel, yet works with Meteo and Torch. However, this is illegal, and chances are it will break.
Attack: 2 - Defense: 5 - Stamina: 0
Fusion Wheel: Gravity
Weight: 33.8 grams
Gravity is colored a metallic black and is a circular Wheel. It features three curved pockets meant for the Destroyer Energy Ring to rest on with two holes on each pocket for a total of six holes. The pockets also form the three sides of a triangle as well. Between the three pockets however, are three jagged protrusions with three red dot stickers which are meant to emulate the face of Medusa. These jagged protrusions also serve as pockets for the Destroyer Ring to rest on and have a "v-shaped" protrusion as well. In a side-view, Gravity is quite thick with five sharp designs protruding upward around the pockets.
Gravity's gimmick is its Dual-Spin ability, made for Right-Spin and Left-Spin launchers. This is possible as Gravity does not contain the walls that block it from being inserted to an opposite-spin Launcher. The only other Wheel compatible for Dual-Spin is Variares.
Gravity has four Modes: Right Spin Defense, Right Spin Counter, Left Spin Defense, and Left Spin Counter; but generally as Defense Mode and Counter Mode. In Defence mode the three holes are covered, while in Countermode they are not. Performance-wise in Defense Mode, the plastic indents of Destroyer cover the jagged protrusions which increases metal on plastic collisions, creating less recoil. In Counter Mode, the jagged protrusions are visible and Destroyer does not come into any contact; this maximizes Gravity's surface area and increases Smash Attack. In Counter Mode, it has more Smash Attack than it does in Defense Mode and is capable of decent knockouts when used with a Metal Face Bolt or Rubber Flat. Although Gravity was labeled as a Defense Wheel, it suffers from recoil in battle. Recoil is never a plus for Defense so because of this, Gravity has found its real use in Attack. Although there is no recommended Mode for Gravity, it features powerful Smash Attack capability and was top-tier as a result. It should be worth to note that Gravity has more Smash Attack in Right Spin therefore, Left Spin should only be used against Defense customs with rubber based Tips such as RS and CS. It is black in colour. It is recommended to use defense mode because of its great smash attack power, but it depends on your own decision. If you will use Defense Mode, you should be warned that you will suffer from great recoil because of the plastic that also makes contact with other beys during battle.
Attack: 2 - Defense: 5 - Stamina: 0
Spin Track: Armor Defense 145 (AD145)
Weight: 2.8 grams
Armor Defense 145 (AD145) is shaped like the head of a funnel, being primarily circular with two curved protrusions that line down in order to act as armor, hence the name and to defend against hits. There are also two smaller protrusions between it, creating gaps. Just like Gravity, even though it was labeled for Defense, it was overshadowed by Spin Tracks like GB145 and 230 as AD145 cannot absorb hits as efficiently and is too light for Defense. Due to this, it has found to be a top-tier Track for Stamina customs because of its unique design, but if you replace AD145 with with Boost Disk 145 (BD145) (also the heaviest Spin Track so far), it makes a really good title for the entire bey itself. AD145 is still a better choice for Defense than 145. The Spin Track is great for Stamina and is top-tier of its class. It was re-released with Fusion Hades.
Attack: 0 - Defense: 1 - Stamina: 2
Performance Tip: Wide Defense (WD)
Weight: 0.7 grams
Wide Defense, as its name implies, is the widest, along with EWD, of the Defense series of Performance Tips (D, SD, WD, EWD and PD). This brings numerous advantages, like the ability to not be knocked over easily. However, it also brings some disadvantages when compared to the other Defense Performance Tips. Due to its massive width that reaches the edge of the Bottom's perimeter, it is able to wobble at a significantly larger angle for a longer period of time than Defense or Semi-Defense, and at a much lower spin rate. This can be advantageous in many battles, particularly those between two Stamina-Types when they are about to topple over. However, if you happen to have a weaker shot than your opponent who is using a Bey such as Virgo DF145SD, Wide Defense's low spin rate towards the end of the battle will make it extremely easy for the opponent to knock it completely over. But if you launch the Bey at a special angle, it is impossible for him to knock you over. This low spin rate towards the end of the battle is created because in the process of wobbling at such a large angle, more friction is made with the stadium floor, thus decreasing its Stamina. This is all avoidable however if your shot is at least as powerful as your opponent, as the extra time it is able to spin on an angle will allow you to narrowly outspin D or SD based opponent. But WD still outclasses SD. It is also better than W2D since it has more Balance. It has more Stamina than WB and also recovers faster than it. However, WB has more defense due to more friction but because of that, it moves more, therefore lowering its defensive qualities. WD has significant defensive capabilities as well, but because it still uses a form of sharp tip, its friction with the stadium floor is decreased, which as a result makes it easier to knock around than a Tip like WB which has much more friction with the stadium flo
or. But since it can recover quickly, it does not matter. Wide Defense also has a brake ability when it gets smashed. In any case, if the tip is severely eroded to a near-flat state, it has extremely low angles at which it can spin, along with more friction, staying power, and more resistance to being knocked over at a low spin rate. Works well with high-weight combos.
Gravity Destroyer is the first Bey to have the AD145WD combo, second being Beat Lynx AD145WD (Hasbro).
It's the first Bey that has two motifs and each mode has its own beast.
Gravity Destroyer is the second Bey to have something to do with Medusa. The first Bey was Poison Serpent SW145SD.
Gravity Destroyer is similar to Fusion Hades in two ways. First, they both share the Armor Defense spin track. Second, in Greek mythology Hades, which is what the Bey is based on, is related to Perseus as it gave Perseus its Helm of Darkness. Having the same Spin Track could be a reference to this.
Gravity Destroyer is one of the few Beys to use a WD Performance Tip / Bottom. The 1st was Earth Eagle 145WD .
Gravity Destroyer will be re-released in the Beyblade Legends Super Vortex Battle Set with Ray Striker D125CS.
It is the second Beyblade to be able to control gravity. The first Beyblade is Draciel G (Gravity).
