5 (ファイブ, Faibu) is a Forge Disc released by Takara Tomy and Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System and SwitchStrike System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-89 Booster Blast Jinnius 5Glaive Guard on August 11th, 2017. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the SwitchStrike Starter Pack Jinnius J3 5Glaive Guard.

Description

5, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is asymmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. One side features two protrusions and the other features three, all molded in the shape of "5"s and the center features two small holes on either side. While the asymmetrical design may imply imbalance, the smaller size of two of the protrusions on the three lobed side ensures that the Disc is balanced. 5's overall shape resembles a reversed 4 and acts almost identically with the same high Stamina potential, Knock-Out Resistance and Life-After-Death when paired with Disc Frames such as Glaive or Cross. While 7 has greater Stamina, 5 is still comparable.

Use in Stamina Combinations

5 can be put to use in the Stamina Combination Maximum Garuda/Drain Fafnir/Guardian Kerbeus/Deep Chaos 5 Glaive/Cross Orbit/Atomic. The Burst Resistance of Maximum Garuda/Drain Fafnir can compensate for the heavy weight and Knock-Out Resistance of 5 Glaive/Cross and Maximum Garuda/Drain Fafnir/Guardian Kerbeus/Deep Chaos' Stamina is bolstered by 5 Glaive/Cross. The free spinning ball of Orbit/Atomic further bolsters Burst Resistance and Stamina.

Use in Defense Combinations

5 can be put to use in the Defense Combination Alter Chronos/Maximum Garuda/Drain Fafnir 5 Glaive/Cross Orbit/Atomic. The Burst Resistance of Alter Chronos/Maximum Garuda/Drain Fafnir can compensate for the heavy weight and Knock-Out Resistance of 5 Glaive/Cross and Maximum Garuda/Drain Fafnir's Stamina is bolstered by 5 Glaive/Cross. The free spinning ball of Orbit/Atomic further bolsters Burst Resistance and Stamina.

Overall

5 functions identically to 4 with the same high Stamina without the massive Burst risk posed by 8 and high weight for Knock-Out Resistance making the Core Disc a key part in Stamina and Defense Combinations. When paired with Frames such as Cross or Glaive, combinations using 5 have high Life-After-Death as well.

As such, 5 is a must have for competitive bladers if one does not have 4.
