Forge Disc - Over
- Main article: Forge Disc - Over
Over is a round DB Disc and one of the heaviest Forge Discs, with an ideal weight distribution for any Combination. It is essentially the Dynamite Battle Layer System version of 0, whose design Over references.
Its round design increases Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and its Stamina potential. Its heavy weight also grants it high Attack and Defense potential. Due to its circular perimeter, Over also has high Life-After-Death (LAD), although like other Discs that support Low Mode, when paired with standard height Performance Tips, it has a scrape risk.
Performance Tip - High Xtend+'
- Main article: Performance Tip - High Xtend+'
Takara Tomy's High Xtend+' is a High and Dash Driver variant of Xtend+, featuring a taller height than the standard Performance Tip, as well as increased Burst Resistance due to a stronger spring. Like its regular counterpart, High Xtend+' features the adjustable Xtend Chip (エクステンドチップ, Ekusutendo Chippu) tip with three modes: Attack, Defense and Stamina.
The Attack Mode features a wide, hollow flat tip, wider than Assault and akin to Zephyr at the standard height of most Performance Tips. Due to the surface area of this mode, High Xtend+' will create a highly aggressive movement pattern with speeds greater than Assault. However, the wide diameter of the tip makes it difficult to maintain a banking pattern and creates relatively low Stamina, making the mode poorly suited for both traditional Attack and Tornado Stalling Combinations.
The Defense Mode features a low angle, stepped cone tip at the standard height of most Performance Tips. Due to the stepped cone, when an High Xtend+' Combination is struck and reaches higher on the Stadium's slope, the flat edge of the tip will create a second point of contact, briefly increasing friction and aggression to both slow down the Combination and counterattack. However, due to the edge of the tip being made of plastic rather than rubber like in Unite and smooth rather than tabbed like in Defense, the effect of the second point of contact is minimal, creating poor Knock-Out Resistance.
The Stamina Mode features a low angle cone tip, akin to Trans' Stamina Mode at a lower height than most Performance Tips. Due to the low friction, High Xtend+' creates excellent Stamina. Of the three modes, the Stamina Mode has the best performance.
- Greatest Raphael's name is a combination of the adjective "greatest", a phrase of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average, and "Raphael", an archangel and one of the three heavenly visitors entertained by Abraham at the Oak of Mamre from Abrahamic religions.
- Like the three Mugen Lock System Beyblades from Beyblade Burst Rise, Greatest Raphael is the only Dynamite Battle System Beyblade to utilize an Energy Layer rather than the DB Core, Blade and Armor.
