Wyvron W2 Vertical Orbit, known in Japan as Wild Wyvern Vertical Orbit (ワイルドワイバーンバーチカル オービット, Wairudo Waibān Bāchikaru Ōbitto) is a Defense-Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released as a Starter in Japan on April 29th, 2016 for 1300円.
Energy Layer - Wyvron W2
Main article: Energy Layer - Wyvron W2
Wyvron W2 is a Defense Type Layer that features eight blades that alternate between colored and clear plastic and, like its Japanese name sake, the head of a wyvern above the center.
While Wyvron W2 may seem round and thus ideal for defensive purposes at first glance, upon closer inspection it's actually square in shape, each of the corners of this square shape create points of recoil making it unsuitable for defense. The Takara Tomy release of Wild Wyvern has teeth akin to Chaos which leads to the downfall of this layer. The teeth are so short that they are unable to withstand the recoil that comes with the square shape making Wyvron W2 incredibly prone to losses by Burst.
Forge Disc - Vertical
Main article: Forge Disc - Vertical
Vertical is shaped somewhat like an upside-down funnel, similarly its predecessor Armed. However, unlike Armed, which has a more gradual and rounded slope, Vertical’s slope begins at a sharper angle and continues downward in a straight line. Vertical also sports a jagged, line-like design, which forms the outline for several holes on the disc’s exterior and eight protrusions on its underside. Despite resembling Armed in terms of shape, Vertical does not offer the same resistance to bursting that Armed is notable for, while also possessing less Stamina than top-tier Forge Discs such as Spread and Gravity.
Performance Tip - Orbit
Main article: Performance Tip - Orbit
Orbit features a free rotating plastic ball tip with a diameter equal to Massive, surrounded by a three tabbed ring. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's Knock-Out defense by having greater surface area and friction, however, in practice the free rotating nature of the ball reduces most of the Knock-Out resistance given by the surface area of the ball. Like other ball based defensive Performance Tips, the tabs around Orbit are meant to act as brakes against Knock-Outs at the cost of stamina by striking against the stadium floor, however, the large diameter makes such contact rare. If hard launched, Orbit creates an aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing the Beyblade to the Tornado Ridge.
While these features may imply that Orbit based Customizations would be easy to Knock-Out, in reality the heavy weight of SwitchStrike/God Layers and Core Discs compensate for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free rotating tip increases the Burst resistance of an Orbit based Customization and Orbit consistently has a stronger spring lock than Atomic which further improves Burst resistance.
In addition to the Defensive properties, Orbit also features high Stamina as the free rotating nature reduces friction with the stadium floor, the wide ball tip keeps a combination stable and thus prevents scraping.
- Wyvron's Japanese name, Wild Wyvern, and avatar are based off the mythical creature Wyvern, a legendary creature with a dragon's head and wings, a reptilian body, two legs, and a tail often ending in a diamond- or arrow-shaped tip.
