|Leone 145D (Defense)|
Note: This article was written near the release of Metal Fight Beyblade and must be updated. Please do not take all of the information here as the truth, as they had not been tested as extensively then as they have been now, and the uses of their parts have changed since their original release. Updates will be posted on the main page when completed.
The face on this Beyblade depicts Leo, which is a sign in the Zodiac.
- Weight: 38 grams
- Maximum Outer Diameter: 43.57 Millimeters
- Maximum Height: 8.97 Millimeters
The Leone Wheel has six protrusions, each separated by v-shaped gaps, resembling the paws of a lion. Three of the protrusions have a purple marking on them, with the paws sloping slightly down and curving outwards. The rest of the three protrusions have the paws sloped outwards and downwards, with no paint marks. Leone's Wheel has been designed to be very compact although due to the high recoil of this wheel it has been outclassed for defensive purposes by Earth, Libra and even Rock. Due to the wheel's high recoil it has proved to have promise as an attack wheel and is best utilised in the Attack customizations MF Leone H145RF, MF Leone 145RF, or Leone 100RF as a Recoil attacker.
Track: 145 (14.5mm)
- Weight: 1.5 grams
145, along with its variants (C145, DF145, etc.), was once the highest Track available, until the 230 Track was released with Flame Byxis. It can be used in Stamina customs to great effect due to its tall height, which allows for more wobbling as the Beyblade loses its spin velocity. 145, as tall as it is, makes it easily susceptible to low Attackers; however, this should not be seen as a drawback because Stamina Types are not traditionally designed to be used against Attack Types.
Use in Attack Customization
- Weight: 1 gram
This is a Defense Bottom, which acts as a wider version of a Sharp tip. When hit by an opponent, a Beyblade with this Bottom will have lessened recoil and will recover from attacks more efficiently than a Sharp Tip. However, while recovering, the Defense Bottom will cause the Beyblade to lose some stamina, caused by the added friction.
Use in Stamina customization
D can be put to use in the combination Scythe Bull 230D. D is a superior choice for 230 because it retains balance more easily than WD.
Leone 145D is composed entirely of at least somewhat useful parts, and is a welcome addition for those who already have a decent collection of Metal Fight Beyblades.
