Energy Layer - Drain Fafnir F3[]

Main article: Energy Layer - Drain Fafnir F3

Hasbro's Drain Fafnir F3 is a round left-spin Stamina Type Layer based on Takara Tomy's Drain Fafnir God Layer. Drain Fafnir F3 is nearly identical to Drain Fafnir, with the only visual difference being the God Chip is now irremovable. Like Drain Fafnir, Drain Fafnir F3 features three dragon heads meant to represent this Layer's namesake: Fafnir, a dragon from Norse mythology. These dragon heads have clear plastic "horns" and rubber "F"s that sticks out slightly at two points along the perimeter. Three claws grasp the center God Chip. These molding details give Drain Fafnir F3 a rough perimeter and a high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) by concentrating the weight along the perimeter. As part of the SwitchStrike System, Drain Fafnir F3 features a gimmick: the rubber "F"s aid in the ability to Spin-Equalize with a right-spin opponent. Compared to Drain Fafnir, Drain Fafnir F3 does not Spin-Equalize as well, as the rubber "F"s are harder and thus have less friction. However, the effect is still there and is strong enough to win by the same Spin-Equalization strategy.

Forge Disc - 7[]

Main article: Forge Disc - 7

7, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is an asymmetrical, elliptical disc that can facilitate a Disc Frame. 7 is designed similar to Gravity or Heavy, with seven designs jutting out that resemble the number "7". At first glance, the Disc looks unbalanced, but in reality, two of the sections on one side being halves makes it balanced. 7 is one of the heaviest Discs thus far, outclassed only by 10 and 0, and has a ideal weight distribution for Stamina Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential without the severe Burst Risk of 8. With the use of Disc Frames, 7 can be used to great effect in any Combination.

Disc Frame - Cross[]

Main article: Disc Frame - Cross

Cross features a diamond shape with protrusions on each corner, akin to Force, at an upward angle. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer, the relatively round shape of Cross grants the highest Life-After-Death out of all Disc Frames. In addition, the upwards angle of the protrusions ensures that they will not scrape against the stadium floor.

Performance Tip - Survive[]

Main article: Performance Tip - Survive

Survive is a Performace Tip with a low-angled cone shape protruding from a cylinder. As a result, while it is overpowered by some Heavy Defense Combinations, it has still shown to be useful in Stamina-based Burst Combinations.

However, it can also be used as a Defense Performance Tip in absence of better ones, and while it is outclassed, its shape helps it rebound from attacks and prevent Knock-Outs. While good ball-shaped or rubber sharp Performance Tips lack in Beyblade Burst, Survive has enough Stability to take hits without losing all balance and Precessing too early like sharper tips.
