Forge Disc - 1'
Main article: Forge Disc - 1'
1', like other odd numbered Core Discs, is asymmetrical and elliptical in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. One side features two small sword-tip like protrusions and the other side features the same protrusions along with a single, larger protrusion of the same shape. 1''s gimmick, like its predecessor 1, is that it is highly unbalanced, it achieves this by having the side with the larger protrusion being more filled in with metal than the other, akin to Quarter. This weight distribution has two primary uses: The first is to increase the Burst Attack of Attack Combinations by generating momentum like a flail which is further enhanced by the heavy weight of 1'. The second is to make a Combination using an unbalanced Layer such as Buster Xcalibur more properly balanced by aligning the heavier side opposite the the heavier side of the Layer which increases Stamina and Burst resistance.
Compared to Quarter, 1' has greater success in Attack Combinations and has proven capable of increasing the rate of Bursts. However, the same imbalance makes 1' unsuitable for Stamina or Defense as the more unbalanced a Combination is, the easier it is to Burst and the faster it loses Stamina. Furthermore, the imbalance slows down Mobile Attack Combinations, making it better suited for Stationary Attack Combinations.
Compared to 1, 1' is slightly heavier which theoretically creates a greater unbalanced effect and greater synergy with the Xcalius/Xcalibur line of Layers. In practice, the only minimal weight increase does not noticeably effect performance compared to its predecessor.
Performance Tip - Sword
Main article: Performance Tip - Sword
Sword is a Performance Tip that features a wide, metal, six-pointed star tip, akin to a combination of Iron, Assault and Jaggy, and two metal sword-like protrusions on either side. Sword also features a gimmick; it can increase the weight of attacks.
To do this, the aforementioned sword-like metal protrusions are positioned in a way that allows them to line up with the contact points of combinations that use unbalanced Layers such as Sieg Xcalibur and Buster Xcalibur as they grow halfway to Bursting. In theory, the metal protrusions of Sword help increase the weight of the Sword Combination's attacks, making KOs or Bursts occur more often. Due to the shape and surface area, Sword will create a highly aggressive movement pattern with speeds comparable to Assault.
While this may imply high Attack potential, in practice, the rough perimeter, low friction of the metal, and wide diameter of the tip not only makes it difficult for Sword to maintain a Banking Pattern, it also creates relatively poor Stamina, despite the metal construction, making Sword ill-suited for Attack and Tornado Stalling Combinations. Furthermore, the metal protrusions of Sword, while they are capable of increasing the weight of a Combination's attacks, create a severe scrape risk, nullifying any Life After Death potential it may have. Finally, Sword is taller than most other Performance Tips, which further reduces Attack potential, as the Sword Combination is prone to being destabilized.
- Like its predecessors Xcalius X2 Magnum Impact and Xcalius X3 1 Iron, Buster Xcalibur's Japanese name is based on the word "buster", a thing that breaks, destroys, or overpowers something, and from the legendary sword Excalibur from Arthurian tales.
- Like Xcalius X3 1 Iron, Buster Xcalibur's avatar is an armored humanoid wielding a large blade. The only difference, however, is that Buster Xcalibur's avatar is a full humanoid, not like Xcalius X3 1 Iron's, which was a sword that transformed into a humanoid.
- Unlike its predecessors, Buster Xcalibur is wielded by a new character named Xhan Bogard in Beyblade Burst Turbo, instead of Xander Shakadera.
- Similar to how Xcalius X3 was created in the anime, Buster Xcalibur was forged into a sword then created into a beyblade.
- This bey has the first core disk that is not just numbers.
- In the Turbo anime, Buster Xcalibur possesses a gold Level Chip.
