Forge Disc - 0
Main article: Forge Disc - 0
0 is a symmetrical Forge Disc that's elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion, each wide and smooth enough to almost make the Forge Disc perfectly circular if not for the notches needed to add a Disc Frame and a molded "0" on each side. The protrusions extend further and are thicker than most other Forge Discs which makes 0 the heaviest Forge Disc at the time of writing and implies high Outward Weight Distribution and Stamina potential. In reality however, more weight is focused towards the center, which creates Centralized Weight Distribution that reduces its Stamina to that of 2's. As such, 0 is outclassed by 7 for Stamina Combinations but 0's greater weight makes it ideal for Attack and Defense Combinations. Furthermore, the round shape of 0 creates high Life After Death, even without the use of Disc Frames such as Cross. While the weight can increase the risk of Bursts, the weight of most SwitchStrike/God Layers and Cho-Z Layers can compensate.

Performance Tip - Zeta'
Main article: Performance Tip - Zeta'
Zeta' features an adjustable tip at a standard height with three settings; Attack, Defense and Stamina, akin to the Original Plastic Generation's Flame Change Base or Metal Fight Beyblade's Delta Drive Performance Tip.
The Attack Setting features a rectangular flat tip, akin to Quake, albeit not slanted. Due to the surface area of this setting, Zeta' will create a highly aggressive movement pattern with high speeds akin to Quake, however the rectangular shape makes Zeta''s Attack Setting incapable of maintaining a Banking Pattern as the corners of the rectangular shape grind against the stadium floor. Furthermore, the same corners will grind against the Tornado Ridge causing a severe reduction in Stamina making the setting ill-suited for both Mobile Attack and Tornado Staller Combinations. Finally, without the slant in the tip, Zeta''s Attack Setting is incapable of hopping and potentially creating Disk to Layer contact like Quake, which was already inconsistent in the original.
The Defense Setting features a wide ball tip, akin to Massive, albeit without tabs. In theory, the wide ball tip would increase a Beyblade's Defense by having greater surface area and friction, however in practice, Zeta''s Defense Setting lags behind Defense and even Massive in almost every aspect. On prior ball Performance Tips such as Defense, tabs surrounded the ball to act as brakes by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina, due to the lack of tabs, the Defense Setting's KO resistance lags behind Massive which also had poor KO resistance. This issue is exacerbated by the surface area of the the Defense Setting as it will create a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in battle, bringing a Beyblade closer to the Tornado Ridge. Due to the aforementioned poor KO resistance, this will make a Beyblade using Zeta''s Defense Setting highly susceptible to KOs.
The Stamina Setting features a flat tip with a small protrusion in the center, akin to Fusion. When launched parallel to the stadium, Zeta''s Stamina Setting will spin on the protrusion, creating a stable, Stamina-conserving spin. When knocked off balance by the opponent or launched at an angle, the flat tip will contact the stadium floor and create a movement pattern with the same speed as Accel before returning to balancing on the protrusion. While both Fusion and Accel have acceptable levels of Stamina due to their plastic construction, they lag behind Tips such as Survive, Revolve and Atomic due to the flat tip and the lack of a free-spinning component. While the Stamina Setting can create and maintain a Banking Pattern better than the Attack Setting due to the round shape, it lags behind Tips such as Accel and Xtreme due to the center protrusion which can also break the Banking Pattern.
Unlike its predecessor, Zeta' features a much thicker spring in its locking mechanism, increasing Zeta''s Burst resistance.
- Like its predecessors Spryzen S2 Knuckle Unite, Legend Spryzen S3 7 Merge, and Spryzen Requiem S3 0 Zeta, Cho-Z Spriggan's name is based on the word "Super" in Japanese, the letter "Z", and the Spriggan, a legendary spirit-based creature from Cornish fairy lore.
- Cho-Z Spriggan's avatar is an amalgamation of the avatars of Storm Spryzen, Legend Spryzen, and Spryzen Requiem: full body armor like Legend Spryzen/Spryzen Requiem's, but colored metallic-orange like Storm Spryzen; demonic wings with armored phalange and dark-red patagia; a long tail with spikes; appearing bulky like Storm Spryzen; bearing the iconic Spryzen crest on the chest, and wielding a halberd like Legend Spryzen/Spryzen Requiem, which also bears the crest.
- Cho-Z Spriggan's avatar has a scar over the right eye, just like Shu.
