Vanguard (バンガード, Bangādo) is a Forge Disc released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-145 DX Starter Venom Diabolos Vanguard Bullet on July 6th, 2019.

Description

A Disc that can repel an opponent, who is aiming for an attack, while lowering its center of gravity with its six blades extending downward and stabilizing the Beyblade.
— Official Description

Takara Tomy's Vanguard is a six-bladed Forge Disc that slopes downwards, similar to Armed and Vertical. The inner and bottom edges of Vanguard consist of plastic riveted to a metal frame. Two of the six blades are larger than the others.

The low-lying shape of Vanguard makes it excellent to use in Life-After-Death (LAD) Stamina Combinations, often being used alongside the Bearing' and Rise Performance Tips. Its performance is comparable to 00/10Wall in this aspect, sharing similar roles. Vanguard can also be used in Attack Combinations, although a Blader must be careful to avoid scraping the Stadium floor. Among Gatinko Layer System Forge Discs, Vanguard is a decent all-around Forge Disc.

Overall

Takara Tomy's Vanguard is a heavy Forge Disc in the Gatinko Layer System, and works well in Stamina Combinations. If one does not own Blitz, Vanguard can be substituted for Attack Combinations, providing decent LAD.

However, Vanguard is too light to compete against newer Forge Discs in the current metagame.

As such, Takara Tomy's Vanguard is recommended for collection purposes only.
