Forge Disc - 11
Main article: Forge Disc - 11
11, unlike most other odd numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Frame. Each side features one large protrusion to create the visage of an "11" with one protrusion featuring a large "1" shaped indent to create an unbalanced design, however the shallow depth of the indent creates no noticeable effect. Compared to other Core Discs, 11 is one of the lightest, even lighter than most non-Core Discs. This light weight severely hinders 11's Attack, Defense and Stamina potential and while the light weight would create high Burst Resistance, the heavy weight of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System and the Cho-Z Layer System makes the use of lightweight Discs for Burst Resistance obsolete.
Disc Frame - Turn
Main article: Disc Frame - Turn
Turn features a gimmick similar to Lift, which has a “Defense Mode” which which is meant to parry hits from the opponent and reduce recoil during Disc-to-Layer contact and an “Attack Mode” which is meant to increase Burst Attack during Disc-to-Layer contact. However, due to most Burst Performance Tips being of the same or very similar heights, such contact is rare. Despite the ineffective gimmick, Turn is one of the heaviest frames, heavier than Lift and Bump but lighter than Wall, which grants high attack potential without the scrape risk when paired with heavy discs such as 0.
Performance Tip - Zephyr'
Main article: Performance Tip - Zephyr'
Zephyr' features a hollow plastic flat tip with a small diameter, akin to Hole Flat from Metal Fight Beyblade, and sits at the standard height. Compared to Accel, the diameter of Zephyr' is slightly larger. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter "Z" for easy differentiation from other Drivers. Due to the surface area, Zephyr' will create an aggressive, and if launched at an angle, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Zephyr' is comparable to Accel, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. Due to the plastic construction, Zephyr' is an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations.
However, Zephyr''s plastic construction is also a weakness as Attack Combinations using Zephyr' can lose their Banking Pattern somewhat easily, especially if the Combinations are unbalanced. Furthermore, the low friction means that Zephyr' is liable to Self-Knock-Outs. Finally, due to Zephyr''s hollow construction, the Driver is liable to denting in the case of Disc-to-Driver contact after a Burst.
However, unlike its predecessor, Zephyr' features a much thicker spring in its locking mechanism, increasing Zephyr''s Burst resistance and significantly reducing the risk of Driver damage.
- Dead Hades' name is based on "dead", a term for "no longer alive", and Hades, the Greek god of the Underworld.
