Forge Disc - Quarter
- Main article: Forge Disc - Quarter
Quarter is a Disc with a wide, round, pipe-like shape interrupted by four rounded rectangular protrusions, on one of the protrusions is a small, marked elevation that creates the look of the letter 'Q'. Like all Forge Discs, it has two tabs that protrude from the top and fit in the slots in the Energy Layer. These tabs are marked with a stylized 'Q' for identification.
Quarter's gimmick is that it is highly unbalanced, it achieves this by being mostly hollow on the underside, with the marked protrusion being half filled in with metal. A weight distribution like this has two primary uses.
The first is to increase the Smash Attack of Attack Combinations as the unbalanced nature creates momentum like a flail, this is further enhanced by the weight of Quarter which is greater than Heavy or Gravity. However, the off-set weight distribution is too little to increase Attack potential meaningfully while also severely increasing the risk of Self-Bursts.
The second is to make a Combination using an unbalanced layer, like Xcalibur, more properly balanced by placing the heavier corner opposite the heavier side of the Layer which increases its Stamina and Burst Resistance.
Furthermore, this same unbalanced nature makes Quarter unsuitable for Stamina and Defense Combinations as the more unbalanced a Beyblade is, the easier it is to Burst.
Performance Tip - Fusion
- Main article: Performance Tip - Fusion
Fusion features a plastic flat tip with a small diameter and a small protrusion in the center, akin to Flat Sharp from Metal Fight Beyblade, and sits at the standard height. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter "F" for easy differentiation from other Drivers.
When launched parallel to the stadium, Fusion will spin on the protrusion, creating a stable, Stamina-conserving spin. When knocked off balance by the opponent or launched at an angle, the flat tip will contact the stadium floor and create a movement pattern with the same speed as Accel before returning to balancing on the protrusion.
However the aggressive movement is unreliable as the protrusion can slow a Fusion Combination down in the center of the stadium or stop the movement entirely. Furthermore, the small size of the protrusion means that when a Fusion Combination slows down and lists, contact will be made with the flat base, severely reducing Stamina.
