It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-181 [/font][font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Random Booster Vol. 25[/font][font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif] on April 24th, 2021.[/font]
[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]==Description==[/font]
[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Cyclone, like its predecessor Glide, is a stamina type Blade. Unlike Glide, it reverts back to the 2 stamina wings last seen on Crash/Blaze Ragnaruk. Its shape is also very reminiscent of Crash/Blaze, except it wings are much longer. Furthermore, the fact that core can be customised mitigates the Ragnaruk line's infamously poor burst resistance.[/font]

[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Like Blaze/Crash Ragnaruk, the stamina wings are meant to  extend from their hinges and increase a Beyblade's stamina by increasing the Layer's Outward Weight Distribution (OWD), while the gimmick is more effective than its predecessors, it still doesn't have that big of an impact. However, they can function as some sort of shock absorbers as the wings slide back [font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]slightly when hit and decrease the impact taken by the combination.[/font][/font]

[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]As part of the Dynamite Battle Layer System, Cyclone is designed to incorporate the Low and High Modes of a Dynamite Battle Core and Armor piece combination. In High Mode specifically the wings don't push back as much, creating a aggressive shape akin to Geist Fafnir at high spin speeds, but not good enough to match dedicated Attack parts like Rage. [/font]
[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]==Use in Stamina Combinations==[/font]
[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Cyclone can be used in the combination Cyclone Belial II/Perseus/Valkyrie I Giga/Over Never/Bearing/Bearing' (Low Mode). The strong teeth of Belial II/Perseus and the former’s burst stopper [/font]gives the combination strong burst resistance that is bolstered by the weight of the Perseus/Valkyrie I in addition to Giga/Over's own weight while keeping the Stamina of Never/Bearing/Bearing'. It is set in Low Mode to maximise its stamina due to the low centre of gravity.
[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]==Overall==[/font]
[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Cyclone is a is a vast improvement over its predecessor Gide due to reverting back to round in shape. The Burst Resistance of the Layer makes is a great choice for Defense Combinations with greater Stamina than other Layers and its smooth perimeter makes it a consistent counter against Vanish and Mirage. However, the advent of the F Gear has caused cyclone ti become obsolete.(Comments: Dyanmite+F>>>Cyclone???)[/font]
[font="Source Sans Pro", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]As such, Takara Tomy's Cyclone is a not a must-have but is a welcome addition to a blader’s collection.[/font]
