'''Cho-Z Valkyrie''' is an Attack Type Energy Layer, the center features a feathered, armored face facing forward, akin to its predecessor [[Energy Layer - Winning Valkyrie|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 Valkyrie''' features three large wings as the primary points of contact, granting the Layer high Knock-Out and Burst Attack potential. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, '''Cho-Z Valkyrie''' features metal in its design; in this case, concentrated behind each wing and in the center However, '''Cho-Z Valkyrie''' feature less metal than most other Cho-Z Layers and most of its weight comes from its size. '''Cho-Z Valkyrie''' 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 "Cho-Z Wings" and in turn extending a Burst-stopping tab located in the left groove meant to fit the prongs of the Disc.

The Layer's size and the inclusion of metal makes '''Cho-Z Valkyrie''' heavier than most SwitchStrike/God Layers and improves Attack Potential by increasing the weight of the Layer, granting higher inertia that increases both KO 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 the Takara Tomy release of '''Cho-Z Valkyrie'''. Due to these factors and the shape of the blades, '''Cho-Z Valkyrie''' performs well in Attack Combinations. However, the wings of '''Cho-Z Valkyrie''' show greater Attack potential when the "Cho-Z Wings" are not active as they cover up a more acute point of contact and when the "Cho-Z Wings" are active, the new point of contact is much more obtuse, reducing recoil. Though the weight of the Layer and the high speed needed to activate the gimmick can mostly compensate.

Insert Hasbro Name, known as Cho-Z Valkyrie (超Zヴァルキリー, Chō Z Varukirī) in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-127 Starter Cho-Z Valkyrie Zenith Evolution on November 17th, 2018.

Description

Cho-Z Valkyrie is an Attack Type Energy Layer, the center features a feathered, armored face facing forward, akin to its predecessor 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 Valkyrie features three large wings as the primary points of contact, granting the Layer high Knock-Out and Burst Attack potential. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Cho-Z Valkyrie features metal in its design; in this case, concentrated behind each wing and in the center. However, Cho-Z Valkyrie features less metal than most other Cho-Z Layers and most of its weight comes from its size. Cho-Z Valkyrie 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 "Cho-Z Wings" and in turn extending a Burst-stopping 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 Valkyrie 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 Valkyrie'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 Valkyrie requires rather extreme spin speeds for the gimmick to activate which may be difficult for younger bladers.

The Layer's size and the inclusion of metal makes Cho-Z Valkyrie heavier than most SwitchStrike/God Layers and improves Attack Potential by increasing the weight of the Layer, granting higher inertia that increases both KO 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 the Takara Tomy release of Cho-Z Valkyrie. Due to these factors and the shape of the blades, Cho-Z Valkyrie performs well in Attack Combinations. However, the wings of Cho-Z Valkyrie show greater Attack potential when the "Cho-Z Wings" are not active as they cover up a more acute point of contact and when the "Cho-Z Wings" are active, the new point of contact is much more obtuse, reducing recoil. Though the weight of the Layer and the high speed needed to activate the gimmick can mostly compensate.

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

Use in Attack Combinations

Cho-Z Valkyrie can be used in the Attack Combination Cho-Z Valkyrie 0/00/10/8/7 Bump/Turn/Meteor Xtreme/Xtreme'/Hunter/Hunter'/Jolt/Jolt'/Zephyr/Zephyr'/Accel/Accel'. The heavy weight of 0/00/10/8/7 Bump/Turn/Meteor and high speed of Xtreme/Xtreme'/Hunter/Hunter'/Jolt/Jolt' bolsters Cho-Z Valkyrie's Attack potential while the Layer's weight, strong teeth and gimmick compensates for the Burst risk. If one struggles to control rubber tips at the spin speeds needed to activate Cho-Z Valkyrie's gimmick, then Zephyr/Zephyr'/Accel/Accel' can be used instead with the combination's high spin speeds compensating for the slower movement.

Overall

While lighter than Winning Valkyrie, Cho-Z Valkyrie's heavy weight, strong teeth and working gimmick make the Layer one of the best choices for Right-Spin Attack at the time of writing.

As such, Cho-Z Valkyrie is a must have for competitive bladers.
