Energy Layer - Alter Chronos

Main article: Energy Layer - Alter Chronos
The motif is of the god of time, Chronos. A right-spin Balance Type God Layer that can change into two modes by changing the bias of the center of gravity, with a well-balanced endurance mode and an Attack mode with an eccentric center of gravity.
— Official Description

Takara Tomy's Alter Chronos is a five bladed Balance Type Energy Layer with one blade protruding further than the rest. Underneath the God Chip is a face meant to depict this Layer's namesake, the Personification of Time, Chronos. Surrounding the God Chip are numerous gears to further emphasis the time motif. The five blades of Alter Chronos are large with only small gaps between them, meant to create a mix between Attack and Stamina through Outward Weight Distribution (OWD). As part of the God Layer System, Alter Chronos features a gimmick; the underside of the Layer can be moved to change the Layer's balance for two modes, "Stamina Mode" and "Attack Mode".

In Stamina Mode, the top of the Layer shows a blue dot and the weight is evenly distributed throughout the Layer to create a stable, Stamina-conserving spin.

In Attack Mode, the top of the Layer shows a red dot and the weight is focused on one side of the Layer to create an unstable spin which improves Attack potential and gives the Layer the ability to Destabilize the opponent with the small slopes found on the blades at the cost of spin time. However, Burst Attack potential is limited due to the compact nature of the blades and how little the protrusion sticks out from the rest of the Layer.

The Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) caused by the gimmick's design gives Alter Chronos relatively high Stamina potential but it is heavily outclassed by Drain Fafnir and Deep Chaos. Due to this, Alter Chronos' true potential lies within Defense. The compact, low recoil blades, high stamina compared to many other Defense Layers and excellent teeth make it a top-tier choice for Defense Combinations.

Forge Disc - 4

Main article: Forge Disc - 4

4, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features two protrusions, one molded into the shape of a "4" and the other molded into the shape of the Roman Numeral "IV". The protrusions extend further from the center more than other Core Discs which grants 4 high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and subsequent Stamina potential. As a Core Disc, 4 is comparatively heavier than regular Forge Discs such as Heavy and Gravity which grants higher Knock-Out Resistance and the ability to facilitate Disc Frames can add characteristics such as Life-After-Death with Cross or Glaive. While 7 has greater Stamina, 4's Stamina is still comparable.

Disc Frame - Flow

Main article: Disc Frame - Flow

Flow is a Disc Frame that features a triangular design with each side featuring three sloped blades, meant to provide Upper Force in Right-Spin and Down Force in Left-Spin. However, the small size of the blades means that the effect is negligible. Compared to Cross, Star and Glaive, Flow’s perimeter is too rough to aid in Life-After-Death in Defense and Stamina Combinations and compared to Vortex, Meteor and Bump, Flow has too little weight to aid in Attack Combinations.

Performance Tip - Jaggy

Main article: Performance Tip - Jaggy

Jaggy features a flat, eight-pointed star tip with a depression in the center. Due to this Performance Tip's shape and surface area, Jaggy will create a moderately aggressive movement pattern with speeds exceeding Accel's. However, the rough perimeter of Jaggy will make it difficult to maintain a Banking Pattern while also heavily reducing Stamina in the process.
