Despite the added "Dark-X" prefix and "N4" suffix, Hasbro's Dark-X Nepstrius N4 is simply a recolored Nepstrius N2. As such, one should refer to the Nepstrius N2 page for information on performance.
Forge Disc - 2

2, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion with "2" shaped molding on either side of the protrusion. 2 has a standard weight distribution and an average weight among Core Discs, these features allow it to act as a "Jack-of-All-Trades", capable of performing well in any type of Combination. While other Core Discs such as 4 and 7 can work better for Attack, Defense and Stamina, 2 works as an excellent alternative if those Core Discs are unavailable.
Performance Tip - Defense-S
Main article: Performance Tip - Defense-S
Defense-S, as its name implies, is a SlingShock Performance Tip based off of Defense. However, unlike the original Defense, Defense-S' ball tip is significantly taller and it features two tabs on either side that are connected to the ball tip, which is meant for the activation of the Performance Tip's "SlingShock Mode". As a part of the SlingShock System, Defense-S can be manually altered to switch between "Battle Ring Mode" and "SlingShock Mode"; in this case, by sliding the tabs to the other side, and then pushing both tabs downwards, and vice-versa.
