Killer Gemios DF145FS
Number: BB-56
System: Hybrid Wheel System
Type: Balance

Face: Gemios

The Face depicts Gemini, the Twins and is the third astrological sign in the Zodiac.

Clear Wheel: Gemios

  • Weight: 2.2 grams

Gemios follows the same aesthetic principles as the Gemios Metal Wheel, and Killer, with a similar two-winged design. It is the lightest Clear Wheel available.

Metal Wheel: Killer

  • Weight: 31.2 grams

Like its Metal System predecessor Gemios, Killer has a textured, bumpy, two-winged design that ends in two rounded edges. However, unlike its predecessor, it is considerably thinner even with a smaller amount of metal dropping below the base of the Wheel. Being so thin, the edges of each wing do not apply as much force as those of the Gemios Metal Wheel; as a result, Killer loses any of the potential Smash Attack the first incarnation had.

Being so thin negates any possible defensive qualities, and though it may seem suited for Stamina, it has shown no advantage over any of the top-tier Stamina Wheels like Virgo, Burn or even Earth.

Hasbro changed the name of the wheel to "Evil" to avoid being offensive. As a result, the Hasbro version of the bey is "Evil Geminos" as opposed to, "Killer Geminos".

Track: Down Force 145

  • Weight: 3 grams

DF145 has four upward facing wings protruding from the top of the Track, which aside from giving it extra weight are meant to push air downwards. While the effects of the wings themselves may be negligible, they likely do help stabilize the Beyblade they are being used on to some capacity. This capability makes it quite useful for Stamina customs, where staying balanced and retaining spin is of utmost importance. The wings can also help protect from low, 90 or 100 based Attackers, but to a much lesser extent than a part with similar defensive properties of C145.

Use in Stamina Customization

DF145 can be put to good use in the custom, Burn Bull DF145SD.

Bottom: Flat Sharp

  • Weight: 0.6 grams

FS features a flat tip with a smaller, sharper tip in the centre. As a result, when launched at a straight angle, the Beyblade spins on this sharp tip, with very little movement. However, when tilted, either from the contact of an opposing Beyblade or from the launch, the Bottom moves in an offensive pattern. However, it suffers from the same problems as other Balance Bottoms, in that the two qualities are compromised, resulting in mediocre performance in both fields.



Killer Gemios DF145FS has very little going for it besides the excellent DF145 Track, which can be obtained in many other Beyblade products. Aside from collection purposes, this bey should only be purchased for its Spin Track.
