Description of Belial 2 DB core

First released with the B-191 Overdrive Special Starter Set as part of the Dynamite Battle system on October 9th, 2021, Belial 2 is a right-spin DB core featuring a “Burst Lock” gimmick.

This “Burst Lock” is part of the “Overdrive System“. If the Beyblade is launched hard enough, the centrifugal force activates a “Burst Lock” tab located under this DB core.

This “Burst Lock” prevents the Forge Disc from moving, stopping it just before the last click ; this system quite simply prevents the combination from bursting. This gimmick is more or less difficult to trigger, depending on the copy at the player’s disposal. Some copies are really hard to trigger while others can have their Burst Lock activated with relative ease and consistency.

Belial 2 also has very good stamina potential, making it a great choice in stamina combinations. The amount of power required to trigger the “Burst Lock” gimmick can make an attack combo hard to control. However, with more stable stamina combinations, players can launch the Belial 2 combo at full strength without fear of burst/self-burst.

Belial 2 has two different molds

There are two different molds to the Belial 2 DB core. The first one was released in the B-191 Overdrive Special Starter Set, and is just as described above. Then, a second version of the mold was released with the B-197 Divine Belial Nexus Adventure-3 booster.

The second mold features a stronger Burst Lock, and a new Burst Ultimate gimmick, the “BU Lock“. When used with BU Lock compatible Forge Discs such as Moon and Xanthus, raised protrusions on the Forge Disc tabs lock into two grooves on the DB Core. This results in increased Burst Resistance, but players may have to launch the Beyblade even harder to trigger Belial 2 “Burst Lock” gimmick, depending on the copy players have at their disposal.

The second mold of Belial 2 can also be found in Overdrive Special Starter Set produced from April 2022 onward. If players want to make sure which mold they have, they can look or ask for the serial number.
