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.

Beyblade Burst™ Component Guide

The Forge Disc™ 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™.

Overview

FORGE DISC™ affects the center of gravity and weight of the top, causing different reactions in battle.

Beyblade Burst™ Guide Book

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.

Classifications of Forged Discs

Single-Piece Forge Discs

This class of Forge Discs are single-piece components, usually composed entirely of zinc alloy and come available in various 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 the standard, zinc alloy Forge Discs, a special type of Single-Piece Forge Discs were also produced called "Material Fusion Discs"[Notes 1] which are Forge Discs constructed using plastic and zinc alloy parts. Earlier examples 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.

Disc-Integrated Parts

In Japan, Takara-Tomy marketed these parts as Disk-integrated Types [Notes 2] and, as the name suggests, are parts which combine Disc elements with another component. Examples of these parts include the Nightmare Longinus (nL) Layer from B-97 Starter: Nightmare Longinus.Ds, the Mugen Performance Tip from the Mugen Beystadium DX Set, the Mugen-L Performance Tip from the Cho-Z Musou Beystadium, the Hybrid Performance Tip from the B-153 Set: Gatinko Customize Set, and the Ignition' Performance Tip. The Double Chassis parts from the Superking Layer System also have built-in Forge Discs. 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.

Two-Part Forge Discs

This type of Forge Disc allows players (Bladers) the capability to customize their Forge Disc using interchangeable Rings[1] (Japanese: フレーム). Separately, these Forge Discs function as a standard Forge Disc would, but their unique construction allows for Rings to be equipped. These Rings come in many styles, shapes, and designs and can drastically alter a Forge Discs performance in battle.
