Attack Ring (AR): War Lion

  • Weight: 6 grams

The AR of Galeon, War Lion, is the prized part of this Beyblade. Although one of the earliest released ARs, it still sees major use years after its release. This AR has both great Defense and Survival properties. Because the AR is so small, it has a tendency to have a high Spin Velocity, which is perfect for Defense types.

However, this AR's Survival properties are the most important. The AR is almost perfectly round, which gives it great endurance because there are very few points of contact at which the Recoil would be strong. However, the true secret to War Lion's Survival capability is in its S-AR. When War Lion is hit and the free-spinning S-AR recieves the hit, the Beyblade will recieve almost no damage. This is because when the S-AR is hit, only the free-spinning S-AR is hit with the opposing force, while the rest of the Beyblade continues to spin unhindered. A downside is that it breaks easily.

Use in Survival/Zombie Customization

As mentioned above, War Lion has great Survival potential due to its round shape and free-spinning S-AR. The small projections protruding from War Lion can also steal spin effectively. The round shape of the AR will not interfere with life after death. You can make a great Survival-type combo with War Lion. Here is an example:

Use in Defense + Survival Customization

Although War Lion has great Survival potential, its Defense ability is strong as well. To outspin an Attack type Beyblade, you need good Defense. Here is an example combo that can be used to beat an Attack Beyblade:

Use in Defense Customization

As discussed above, War Lion has great Defense potential due to its round, small shape. This shape results in a higher Spin Velocity. Also, the Sub-AR can prevent powerful Recoil. You can make a great Defense-type combo with War Lion. Here is an example:

Use in Compact Customization

War Lion has a round and small shape. Because of this, it can achieve a high Spin Velocity. While this is good for Defense combos, it is also good for Compact combos. Here is an example:

As you will notice, this combo is the same basic concept as an uncustomized Galeon. However, it improves on the most basic functions to produce a great Beyblade.

Galeon is undoubtedly a great Beyblade, and can even be used to decent effect uncustomized. It is undeniable the main draw is War Lion, the individual parts of which both perform well in any Defense or Survival custom. However, the Sub AR gimmick adds relatively little to War Lion's performance, and as such Galeon lacks anything significant to raise it above the numerous other Beyblades with Attack Rings which serve the same purpose, such as Driger S and Metal Dranzer – the former of which comes with a more useful Blade Base and the latter which is often available for relatively cheap prices, especially considering the fragility of War Lion. This Beyblade is not a must-have, but it is nevertheless a welcome addition to any collection.
