Energy Layer - Betromoth B2
Main article: Energy Layer - Betromoth B2
Betromoth B2 is an overall round Energy Layer designed for Attack, the center of the Layer depicting a beast, like the Layer's namesake, biting down on the circle where the "B" of the Layer resides.
Consisting of a colored bottom layer made up of two jaw-like arches and a clear top layer consisting of five, widely spaced blades creating a pinwheel-esque look, the "jaws" and ends of the clear blades of the Layer are covered in small serrations like teeth. While these features may imply that this Layer has a lot of recoil, the height of the Layer means that typically both layers come into contact with the opposing Beyblade and fill in each other's gaps, and the slight serrations are too small to cause any noticeable recoil and subsequent Stamina loss.
The Takara Tomy release of Beast Behemoth also features three tall teeth akin to Victory Valkyrie, allowing it to be used in Defense Combinations with its moderately low recoil.
Forge Disc - Down
Main article: Forge Disc - Down
Down features a dropping shape akin to Armed and Vertical with thin bands that connect the interior of the Disc with the weighted nubs along the bottom portion. Like all other Forge Discs, it features two tabs with stylized 'D's that protrude from the top to fit into the slots of an Energy Layer.
Down's design is meant to lower the center of gravity on a Beyblade, doing so increases a Beyblade's stability and reduces the risk of floor scrapes. In addition, the wide shape of Down focuses much of its weight around the perimeter, giving this Disc excellent Stamina properties and giving Attack Combinations greater aggressive movements with its Flywheel Effect.
However, Down has two features that give both advantages and disadvantages: The first is weight, Down's average weight means that its KO Defense is sub-par compared to more popular choices such as Heavy or Gravity, but at the same time gives more Burst Defense than the aforementioned Discs. The second is height and shape, while excellent for stability and Stamina, the weighted nubs create a rough perimeter and the low positioning makes it easy for said nubs to contact the stadium floor late in battle when spin velocity is low, rendering any Life After Death null. However, the low center of gravity helps resist listing and Destabilization to prevent such contact.
Performance Tip - Liner
Main article: Performance Tip - Liner
Liner features a plastic wheel on an axis through the middle so it can roll. Although it is meant to spin, because it is perpendicular with the stadium floor, it doesn't spin naturally like Gyro or Revolve. Rather, it remains stationary when stable but has an erratic pattern when hit. This lends into its gimmick, counter attacking by rapidly returning to the center, though this effect is through the shape of the tip and not through the rolling of the wheel. This same shape also leads to poor Balance and poor Stamina in turn.
