Description of Needle
First released in the BX-04 Knight Shield 3-80N Starter as part of the Xtreme Gear Sports system, Needle (or N) is a defense type Bit, the first defense Bit released in the Beyblade X Generation.
Needle is a pointy Bit, featuring a conical shape and a sharp tip. The shape of the Bit results in a docile, controllable stationary behavior, making the combination steady in the middle of the stadium. This behavior allows the player to launch the combo with force and confidence. If launched hard, this Bit can have stamina comparable or superior to the Ball Bit.
In terms of defense potential, luck is a huge factor. On one hand, the stationary behavior of this Bit can be very safe, remaining steady in the center of the stadium thus evading attacks from the opponent. On the other hand, the stationary behavior can also make the combination an easy target for Xtreme Dash attacks.
Furthermore, The very low contact surface and friction of Needle typically result in the combination tilting over and wobbling fairly quickly. It also makes the combination easier to destabilize and knock-out. Again, luck is an important factor. With the right Blade, this Bit can remain steady and repel the opponent’s attacks, but it also can be sent flying in the stadium walls and pockets.
In this early stage of the Beyblade X generation, “N” is commonly used with all the Blades available, including the attack oriented Shark Edge Blade.
Intended to be a defense type Bit because of its controllable behavior, Needle features very good stamina potential. However, its innate weaknesses make it a riskier option than Ball. Furthermore, its stamina potential is outclassed by High Needle, which is also slightly more mobile.
Nonetheless, Needle can find use in strong top tier combinations, making it a great addition to any player’s collection.
