<onlyinclude>'''Valtryek''' features a tri-wing design, with each wing sporting a set of two protruding contact points; a larger contact point for a heavy attack, and a smaller kite-shaped contact point for a smaller unexpected attack. It is modeled after Odin's handmaidens from Norse mythology, known as Valkyries, and the wheel features a design to reflect this. The center of the wheel is designed after the Valkyries' helmet, with feathers protruding off of the helmet, and a V-shape between them.

The amazing teeth (on '''Valkyrie''', the original release) and the extremely aggressive shape, make it one of the best, if not the best, energy layers for Burst Attack and Burst Defense in the metagame. The extremely tall teeth on '''Valtryek''' help it to provide Burst Finishes while avoiding its own recoil. These same teeth also suffer from severe wear issues. The teeth are not wider like dual layer teeth so they wear faster. This makes '''Valtryek''' only useful for a short amount of battles. It is still one of the most useful energy layers, however.

Due to its aggressive shape and the angles of the points of contact, '''Valtryek''' was one of the best layers for Attack Customization, excelling in both Burst and Knock-Out Attack. The Takara-Tomy release of '''Valkyrie''' features four teeth of tall length which allow it to withstand its own recoil, however, like other pre-[[Layer - Xcalibur|Xcalibur]] Layers, the teeth of Valkyrie wear down with use and the Layer must be replaced with heavy use.

Valtryek, known as Valkyrie (ヴァルキリー, Varukirī) in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System. It debuted in the DX Starter B-01 Valkyrie Wing Accel on July 18th, 2015 and has been released multiple times since then. It is the first Energy Layer ever released.

Description

The Valtryek Energy Layer features a tri-wing design, with each wing sporting a set of two protruding contact points; a larger contact point and a smaller kite-shaped contact point. The centre of the Energy Layer depicts an armored face, with feathers protruding off of the helmet, and a V-shape between them to represent this Layer's Japanese namesake, Odin's handmaidens from Norse mythology known as Valkyries.

Due to its aggressive shape and the angles of the points of contact, Valtryek was one of the best layers for Attack Customization, excelling in both Burst and Knock-Out Attack. The Takara-Tomy release of Valkyrie features four teeth of tall length which allow it to withstand its own recoil, however, like other pre-Xcalibur Layers, the teeth of Valkyrie wear down with use and the Layer must be replaced with heavy use.

Use in Attack Combinations (Takara Tomy)

Valkyrie can be put to use in the Attack Combination Valkyrie Heavy/Gravity Xtreme. Valkyrie's strong Burst and Knock-Out Attack potential is bolstered by Heavy/Gravity's weight and Xtreme's speed while Gravity's greater Outward-Weight-Distribution increases the speed of Xtreme. Valkyrie's unworn teeth are capable of withstanding the increased Burst risk of heavy Discs and high friction Tips.

Overall

Overall, Valkyrie was one of the best Energy layers for Attack Combinations and remained as the best Attack Layer until the release of the Switch-Strike/God Layer System where it then became too light to remain competitive.

As such, Valkyrie is now recommended for collection purposes only.

Differences in the Hasbro Version

The Hasbro release of Valtryek is visually unchanged from its Takara Tomy counterpart, however the slopes of Valtryek are weaker than a mint Valkyrie's teeth, instead creating a performance akin to a moderately worn Valkyrie. As such, Valtyrek is outclassed by, though still comparable to, Roktavor and Xcalius. However, with the release of the Switch-Strike/God Layer System, this Layer is too light to remain competitive.

As such, Valtryek is recommended for collection purposes only.
