VariAres quickly found its home in Smash Attack customs, however it has since been outclassed by Flash and Wyvang, among others. The mechanism within D:D is an improvement over the classic Flame Change Base, but like Flame Change Base, it is almost as useless competitively. Therefore, this Beyblade should only be considered if all preferred alternatives cannot be purchased, or for collection purposes.

- Variares D:D is the first 4D three-layer Bey to be produced, Face, Wheel, Track/Bottom.
- Variares is the second Metal Saga Beyblade to be multidirectional. The first was Gravity Destroyer AD145WD.
- In the manga, Variares's beast is completely different from the anime.
- In the anime, Variares D:D never used the Sharp tip on it's 4D Track, preferring to use Flat and Wide Ball instead.
- It is the first Beyblade to have three tips in one. The second is Diablo Nemesis X:D.
- In the anime, Variares stays in Attack Mode when it is not spinning. This doesn't occur in the real life, as it's only in Attack Mode when it is spinning.
- Hasbro initially released Variares as Variares 145WB, with the mode change disabled to keep it in Defense mode. It was later released as Variares D:D with its mode change intact as part of the 4D Hyperblades series.
- In the anime, it is classified as an Attack-type by Madoka.
- Variares's 4D Performance Tip, D:D, is the only mode changing tip were the flat tip does not have a hole.
