God Valkyrie Mugen (ゴッドヴァルキリー・無限, Goddo Varukirī Mugen) is a Stamina Type Beyblade that's part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. As an anime-exclusive Beyblade, it was never released. It's owned by Raul Comas.
Energy Layer - God Valkyrie
- Main article: Energy Layer - God Valkyrie
Takara Tomy's God Valkyrie is an Attack Type Energy Layer, the center features a feathered, armored face facing forward, unlike previous iterations where the face was seen from a side profile, meant to represent the Layer's namesake; Odin's handmaidens of Norse mythology, albeit changed to match the anime's rendition; an armored knight. The perimeter is made up of a translucent layer with three upward slanting wings which act as the primary points of recoil and an opaque layer with three smaller sub-wings behind the main set. As part of the God Layer System, God Valkyrie features gimmicks; the first is that the translucent layer and primary wings are spring loaded to create "Bound Attack", the second is that God Valkyrie can be improved with the Strike God Chip.
In theory the spring loaded Layer would increase Burst Attack by moving upon impact and forcibly springing back. However, without a locking mechanism, in practice the Bound Attack gimmick fails to work, instead recoil is only produced when the Bound Layer is pushed as far as it will go and will only spring back after the opponent has been pushed away. Furthermore, the spring will render recoil null late in battle when spin velocity becomes too low to force the Bound Layer back to the limit, instead slowing the God Valkyrie Combination down.
Despite this, God Valkyrie has comparable performance to its predecessor Victory Valkyrie early in battle as the shape of God Valkyrie's wings is ideal for Knock-Out Attack early in battle and the resistance of the Bound Layer is still enough to Burst a suitably weakened opponent towards the end of a battle. Furthermore, God Valkyrie features three teeth of high length, akin to its predecessor Victory Valkyrie, allowing this Layer is withstand its own recoil. Finally, God Valkyrie is heavier than its predecessor which further aids Burst Resistance.
Performance Tip - Mugen
- Main article: Performance Tip - Mugen
Mugen, unlike other Performance Tips, is not compatible with a Forge Disc, Left-Spin Layer or Launcher as the weight and prongs of a Forge Disc have been integrated directly into Mugen, the thickness of the right sides of the prongs and the width of the prongs prevents a launcher from fitting inside. This is due to the fact that the Tip must be used with the Mugen and/or Musou Beystadiums.
Mugen’s bottom features a wide, low angled cone tip, akin to a larger Wide Defense from Metal Fight Beyblade, that is magnetized, akin to Prototype Nemesis from Metal Fight Beyblade. The magnetic tip connects with the center of the Mugen and/or Musou Beystadiums and keeps the Mugen Beyblade fixed in place and spins with the stadium’s motorized center, when knocked off of its perch, the wide cone tip creates a stable, Stamina-conserving spin and brings the Mugen Beyblade back to the spinning center and the heavy weight resists Knock-Outs.
Furthermore, the spring of Mugen is much stronger than that of other Performance Tips which increases the Burst Resistance of the Layer it’s paired with. Such features are meant to simulate a strong Stationary Defense/Stamina/Attack Type depending on the Layer used in order to practice Banking Shoots with Attack Combinations or test a Combination’s Burst and/or Knock-Out Resistance.
