The ENERGY LAYER™ represents an ancient fighting spirit and acts as the main point of contact between two tops in combat. Each ENERGY LAYER™ affects how the BEYBLADE BURST™ top engages with an opponent when they collide in battle.

Beyblade Burst™ Component Guide

The Energy Layer™ is a component of Beyblade Burst™ tops. Within the Beyblade Burst™ Performance Top System™, the Energy Layer is (structurally) the first layer of the top's anatomy and affects how Beyblade tops engages one another in battle, mainly through the use of Attacks.

Description

ENERGY LAYER™ affects how the top engages with an opponent when they collide in battle.

Beyblade Burst™ Guide Book

Similar to the Attack Rings, Energy Rings/Fusion Wheels, and Element Wheels/Warrior Wheels, Energy Layers are the primary combat component of the Beyblade and provides the necessary tools and weapons for the Bey to engage other Beys in combat. Most Energy Layers are designed with the likeness of an Avatar and many of their characteristics and attributes are reflected in their design.

Energy Layers, much like Energy Rings/Fusion Wheels, and Element Wheels/Warrior Wheels, determine the Spin of the Beyblade top.

Energy Layer Classifications

The standard construction of an Energy Layer™ usually consists of pieces made from either clear polycarbonate (PC) and colored acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic materials, as well as metal support pieces (ie. screws and springs) when necessary. All Energy Layer vary greatly in size and shape. Many Energy Layers™ produced by Takara Tomy were manufactured using the following materials:

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)
Polyamide (PA) Polycarbonate (PC)
Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) Polyoxymethylene (POM)
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) Zinc-Alloy

Performance Top Layers

The first type of Energy Layers™ had a simple structure and design, usually comprising a clear casing over a colored frame. Both pieces featured distinct points of articulation between them which complimented each other as a single unit.

This type of Energy Layers originally debuted in April of 2016 in Japan as part of Takara-Tomy's BB dual system logo Dual Layer System Beyblade series, being known as Dual Layers.

Dual Layers

This classification of Energy Layer consist of a clear Over Layer (Japanese: オーバーレイヤー) and a colored Layer Core (Japanese: レイヤーコア) which work together to structurally support each other. Layer Cores feature the effigy of the Beyblade's Avatar while Over Layers feature the stylized initials of the Energy Layers, engraved in its center.

This type of Energy Layers originally debuted in April of 2016 in Japan as part of Takara-Tomy's BB dual system logo Dual Layer System Beyblade series, being known as Dual Layers.

When Hasbro began manufacture and distribution of Beyblade Burst™ products in the international territories, they would release both the original wave of Beyblade Burst™ and Dual Layer™ tops under their Beyblade Burst™ Performance Top System.

SwitchStrike Energy Layers

Beyblade Burst™ SwitchStrike™ Energy Layers™ have features that augment the way Beyblade tops behave during collisions while in battle.

Disc-Intergrated Parts

These layers don't allow discs to be added. You can only have the layer and driver.

Cho-Z Layers

Cho-Z Layers are Energy Layers™ constructed with heavyweight Zinc-Alloy (Japanese: 亜鉛(あ​えん)合金(ごうきん)) parts reinforcing the exterior. Cho-Z Layers manufactured by Takara-Tomy differ from the Hasbro brand Energy Layers™ in two, key aspects. The first being that Cho-Z Layers were designed to accommodate Level Chips and the other being that all Hasbro brand, Cho-Z-inspired Energy Layers™ (with the exclusion of the Hades H3) have replaced the material used for the Zinc-Alloy parts with a lighter, plastic material.

All Energy Layers™ inspired by the Takara-Tomy's Cho-Z Layers were released under the Beyblade Burst™ SlingShock™ product line, with the exception of the "Turbo Valtryek V3" and "Hades H3" Energy Layers, which were released under the Beyblade Burst™ SwitchStrike™ brand.

Gatinko Layers

GaTinko Layers are Energy Layers™ specially designed to allow customization. Takara Tomy© brand GaTinko Layers can be customized between three specific parts:

  • GaTinko Chip: Determines the spin direction.
  • Weight: Influences the Energy Layer's weight distribution.
  • Base: Determines the tools and method of combat.

Hasbro© brand GT Energy Layers limit the depth of customization to two parts:

  • GT Chip: Determines the spin direction.
  • Energy Layer: Determines the tools and method of combat.

These Energy Layers™ are the latest in Energy Layer™ technology.

In the TV Series

In the TV series and graphic novels, many of the Energy Layers are designed and independently by Bladers themselves using 3D printing technology and forge welding.

In the Graphic Novels

Similar to the TV series, in the graphic novel series, many of the Energy Layers are designed and produced independently by Bladers themselves using 3D printing technology and forge welding.
