Cho-Z Valtryek Zenith-P Destroy' is an Attack Type Beyblade released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the Pro Series System. It was released in western countries as a part of the Elite Champions Pro Set for USD$49.99 in the United States.

Energy Layer - Cho-Z Valtryek

Main article: Energy Layer - Cho-Z Valtryek

Cho-Z Valtryek is Hasbro's Pro Series release of Takara Tomy's Cho-Z Valkyrie Energy Layer, and is unchanged from its Takara Tomy counterpart. However, it is manufactured with weaker plastic.

Hasbro's Cho-Z Valtryek is an Attack Type Energy Layer, with the center featuring a feathered, armored face facing forward, akin to Winning Valkyrie, meant to represent the Layer's namesake; Odin's handmaidens of Norse mythology, albeit changed to match the anime's rendition; an armored knight. Like its predecessors, Cho-Z Valtryek features three large wings as the primary points of contact, granting the Layer high Knock-Out and Burst Attack potential. As part of the Pro Series Cho-Z Layer System, Cho-Z Valtryek features metal in its design; in this case, concentrated behind each wing and in the center. However, Cho-Z Valtryek features less metal than most other Cho-Z Layers and most of its weight comes from its size. Cho-Z Valtryek also features a gimmick; the Layer features an anti-Bursting mechanism called the "Cho-Z Awakening System".

At high spin velocity, the centrifugal force activates a bistable mechanism, revealing red sub-wings called the "Turbo Blades" and in turn extending a "Burst Stopper" tab located in the left groove meant to fit the prongs of the Disc. This Burst Stopper then obstructs the Disc from moving during impact, preventing the loss of the last click and preventing the Cho-Z Valtryek Combination from Bursting. Due to the bistable mechanism, the wings and tab do not retract when spin speeds are low and must be manually pushed in after every match, the mechanism also allows the gimmick to work as intended.

Because of Cho-Z Valtryek's triangular design, only the upper-left wing will move the tab with the other two being purely aesthetic. However, due to the bistable mechanism, Cho-Z Valtryek requires rather extreme spin speeds for the gimmick to activate which may be difficult for some Bladers.

The Layer's size and the inclusion of metal makes Cho-Z Valtryek heavier than most God Layers and improves Attack Potential by increasing the weight of the Layer, granting higher inertia that increases both Knock-Out and Burst Attack as well as increasing the Layer's Burst Resistance as the high inertia resists teeth skipping, a property that compliments the tall teeth of Cho-Z Valtryek. Due to these factors and the shape of the wings, Cho-Z Valtryek performs well in Attack Combinations. However, the wings of Cho-Z Valtryek show greater Attack potential when the "Turbo Blades" are not active as they cover up a more acute point of contact and when the "Turbo Blades" are active, the new point of contact is much more obtuse, reducing recoil. As such, Cho-Z Valtryek almost requires the use of the three pointed Zenith-P Disc to concentrate weight at the points of contact to be effective with the gimmick activated.

Unlike most other Cho-Z Layers and like other Layers with the "Cho-Z" prefix, Cho-Z Valtryek is incompatible with a Level Chip.

Forge Disc - Zenith-P

Despite the "Zenith-P" name, Hasbro's Zenith-P is virtually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Zenith. As such, one should refer to the Zenith page for information on performance.

Performance Tip - Destroy'

Main article: Performance Tip - Destroy'

Destroy' features an eight-pointed star tip, akin to Jaggy, under a free-spinning plate that sits at a standard height.

Due to the tip's shape and diameter, Destroy' will create an aggressive movement pattern equivalent to Jaggy with the same moderately controllable movement pattern and speed.

What sets Destroy' apart from Jaggy is the free-spinning plate that is meant to stabilize a Beyblade if it is knocked off balance by creating a second point of contact with only minimal Stamina loss due to its free-spinning nature. Unlike other Tips with similar gimmicks such as Cycle and Guard, the low placement of Destroy''s plate ensures that lock up does not occur, meaning that Destroy''s gimmick works as intended.

While Destroy' has poor Stamina from the star shaped tip, the smooth perimeter and free-spinning nature of the plate also grants Destroy' high Life-After-Death which can allow Combinations to potentially Out-Spin their opponent if a Burst or Knock-Out has not been achieved.

Like other Dash Performance Tips, Destroy' features a stronger spring lock, increasing the Performance Tip's Burst Resistance.

There is a mold variation of Destroy': the mold released by Hasbro in the Elite Champions Pro Set has a regular spring, which means it is in fact a normal Destroy, rather than the Dash Driver version.
