Galeon 2

  • From Random Booster 9, one of three Prize Beyblades alongside Trygator and Trygle 2. The three come in Black, Jungle Green and Orange Sunshine, Black being the prize color for this Beyblade.

  • Despite rumours of a "Galeon 2 G", Hasbro did not release an Engine Gear version of this Beyblade, and this is a fan creation that was added to the Beyblade Wikia - it has been confirmed to not exist in any product listings which are available and thorough from the era. For reference, the anime version of Galeon 2 uses a non-plated Wide Attack, Right Engine Gear (Metal Semi-Flat) and Knight Driger's version of First Clutch Base (Metal Driger Version).

Attack Ring: Howling Leo

Weight: 3.6g

    • Relatively small Attack Ring with aggressive design consisting of mostly triangular, backwards-angled protrusions.

Right Spin:

  • Howling Leo lacks effective contact points in this direction, with all of them being quite backward angled and not terribly well exposed.

  • In addition, it has too much recoil for Stamina, Defense or Compact use in this direction.

  • Not worth using

Left Spin:

  • Contact points are better exposed in this direction

  • Small size limits its power significantly - were it larger it might have promise, but as it is it fails to deliver powerful hits to opponents.

  • Moderate to high recoil inhibits offensive ability as well as any defensive use.

  • Overall not worth using.

Weight Disk: Random

Spin Gear: Neo Right SG (Metal Weight Version)

Spin Gear Shells: Neo Right Spin Gear Shells

Weight: 1.15g ea (total 2.3g)

  • Generally preferred to regular Right shells due to being compatible with all SG-Compatible bases, in particular for being compatible with Neo SG Cores and the Heavy Metal Core.

  • This means they are a necessity for Compacts, Weight Based Defense, Force Smash, Traditional Upper Attack and Driger V2 Combinations, at least aside from the rare occasions Left Spin is desired for one of these types, in which case Neo Left Shells are preferred.

  • Overall a crucial competitive part, but thankfully exceedingly common.

Spin Gear Core: Metal Weight Core

Weight: 2.5g

  • Only compatible with Neo Shells.

  • Has a cylindrical metal part in the centre to add weight

  • Slightly lighter than Magnecores, which limits its usefulness, even for Attack Types where the small difference between it and other cores in terms of weight means it generally fails to find a niche, or at least fails to stand out as significantly better in most cases.

  • This does not mean it is outclassed for all setups, however, odds are it provides the right mix of recoil control and speed for some setups, it is just that the difference it would be best by would inevitably be quite small.

  • Does still work well for Attack Types in general, despite usually being outperformed by other options the difference is quite minimal.

Blade Base: SG Semi-Flat Base

Note: It is possible to get alternate Blade Bases with non-prize colours of Random Booster Beyblades. In Galeon 2's case, the alternates are SG Flat Base and SG Sharp Base.

Weight: 4.7g

  • SG version of Semi-Flat Base.

  • Tip is slightly differently angled from Semi-Flat Base, being more shallow. Wears quite quickly.

  • Semi flat tip is nice, being predictable and not difficult to use, but Metal Change Base has better attack, defense, and survival, while Metal Ball Base once worn has a similar but more effective tip shape due to better precession.

  • It is generally outperformed as a result of these factors.

  • In addition, Metal Ball Base with Six Metal Balls has a similarly well-behaved tip but 1g more weight.

  • Nonetheless, it is a competitive part for Compact Customizations as it does work well and they remain competitive using it - just perhaps slightly less capable than with alternatives.

  • There is a second mold which tends to be slightly heavier than the original, due to two molding cylinders. Performance is generally identical.


  • Galeon 2 is a disappointing follow up to the excellent Galeon. With the only unique part being the decidedly mediocre Attack Ring, this Beyblade is best left to collectors.
