|“||The FORGE DISC™ is a die-cast metal ring that sits between the ENERGY LAYER™ and PERFORMANCE TIP™. Each disc varies in weight and shape to affect the center of gravity and weight of the top, causing different reactions in battle.||”|
The Forge Disc™[Notes 1] is a component of Beyblade Burst™ tops. Within the Beyblade Burst™ Performance Top System™, the Forge Disc™ is (structurally) the second layer of the top's anatomy and affects movement patterns, balance, and weight. Forge Disc influences a Bey's behavioral tendencies in various manners, such as whether it tends to spin in one place or roams around the Beyblade Burst Beystadium™.

Forge Discs™ are typically a single-piece component, usually composed entirely of die-cast metal. This components comes in a variety of shapes and weight; a rapid departure from the classic Weight Disks of Beyblades from the first generation.
Design-wise, Forge Discs™ are assembled similarly in the manner that first generation Weight Disks (specifically the Hard Metal System series) and second generation Fusion Wheels, being primarily the middle layer of the top's structure.
Details on Forged Discs
Single-Piece Forge Discs
This class of Forge Discs are single-piece components, usually composed entirely of die-cast metal[Notes 2] and come available in an assortment of shapes, weights, and designs. These Forge Discs were originally released in Japan in 2015, with the launch of Takara Tomy's Beyblade Burst product line.
Alongside from the standard, die-cast metal Forge Discs, a special type of Single-Piece Forge Disc, called "Material Fusion Disc"[Notes 3], were produced which are Forge Discs using plastic and die-cast metal parts. Earlier examples of this include the Magnum Disc, Jerk Disc, and Polish Disc, with additional entries being introduced further into production. Many of these later entries were featured in the Gatinko Layer Series, including the Blitz Disc, Sting Disc, and Hurricane Disc.
Rip Fire Forge Discs
Similar to a regular Single-Piece Forge Disc, Rip Fire Forge Disc is a single-piece component made from die-cast metal. Conversely, unlike a conventional Forge Disc, these Rip Fire Forge Discs lack many of their defining elements, such as a socket for Beyblade Burst™ Performance Tips™ and Stoppers. Unique to Rip Fire Forge Discs is their ring-shaped structure, which has a wide diameter to fit Rip Fire Performance Tips™.
Two-Part Forge Discs
Two-Part Forge Discs are a type of Forge Disc that can be customize using interchangeable Rings[Notes 4]. The Forge Disc[Notes 5] is made from die-cast metal and can function independently as a Single-Piece Forge Disc if required, with Rings serving as optional accessories. These interchangeable Rings come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and designs and can drastically augment the combat capabilities of the Ring-Compatible Forge Disc.
In Japan, Takara-Tomy marketed these parts as Disk-integrated Types [Notes 6] and, as the name suggests, are parts which feature built-in Forge Discs in their structure. Examples of these parts include the Nightmare Longinus (nL) Layer from B-97 Starter: Nightmare Longinus.Ds, the Mugen Driver from the Mugen Beystadium DX Set, the Mugen-L Driver from the B-126 Set: Cho-Z Musou Beystadium, the Hybrid Driver from the B-153 Set: Gatinko Customize Set, the Ignition Dash Driver and the Double Chassis parts from the Superking Layer System.
Internationally, Hasbro marketed these parts of "Fused parts" with the only example of this (currently) being the Lúinor L3 (LD01) Fused Energy Layer and Forge Disc.
