Pirates Killerken A230JSB
Number: BBG-13
System: Beyblade Zero-G
Type: Defense
Element: Water

Note: The name "Killerken" is a wordplay in Japanese. In that language, Kraken is usually pronounced "kuraaken". However, TAKARA-TOMY made a simple replacement of the first Katakana symbol to make: "kiraaken". While this could have been translated as Kiraken which would result in only a negligible variation of pronunciation, the Japanese company decided to push the wordplay to the limit and actually write it as what "kiraa" also means: killer.

Stone Face: Killerken

  • Weight: grams

Killerken has a motif inspired by a Kraken, which is a giant octopus from legends.

Chrome Wheel: Killerken

  • Weight: 30.45 grams

Unlike most of the other Chrome Wheels, Killerken possesses a design which is generally well balanced. Indeed, on one side of the Chrome Wheel, a series of curved lines in the shape of tentacles can be observed in the design and, after a short interruption created by a trapezoid protrusion, the same series of tentacles is reproduced, however it is mirrored. At the other side of the trapezoid, the orb from the Crystal Wheel can be seen, surrounded by a design which resembles the beak of an octopus. The wider parts of the tentacles accumulate near the edges of Killerken, leaving only deeply engraved lines near its center.

Crystal Wheel: Pirates

  • Weight: 4.0 grams

Pirates is a perfect vertical mirror of Orojya's sides. The combination of both creates a uniform pattern where Pirates continues the patterns of the snakes that are circled around Orojya's structure.

Track: Armor 230

  • Weight: 5.5 grams

The A230 Track simply adds upon the regular design of 230. Pyramidal shapes are attached to its core on four sides, with steps all around those pyramids, reminescent of the architecture of most Mesoamerican pyramids. Half of the shapes, opposite to each other, are slightly smaller than the other two.

Bottom: Jog Sharp Ball

  • Weight: 0.6 grams

As its name suggests, JSB consists of a ball with a slight sharp elongation at its end, with several bumps at the tip, like on Jog Ball.
