— Official Description

In-depth information for Takara Tomy's Odin Gatinko Chip will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.

Layer Weight - Ten

Main article: Layer Weight - Ten
A Weight built into a Layer. A Weight that concentrates its weight on its 4 points to the limit and prevents the axis from shaking.
— Official Description

Ten has four hexagons, two on each side, with a sizable gap between the two on each side. This makes Ten one of the lightest Layer Weights. Ten has very little use, given even Sen, Zan, and Retsu outclass it for usage as generic weights for different Combinations. Ten does not offer anything that is better than any of the weights that are used more often.

Layer Base - Knockout

Main article: Layer Base - Knockout (Takara Tomy)
An Attack Type Base that stabilizes the center of gravity by incorporating ultra-heavy metal and gives a powerful impact to the opponent with an Attack blade like a thick wall.
— Official Description

In-depth information for Takara Tomy's Knockout Layer Base will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.

Forge Disc - 12

Main article: Forge Disc - 12

12, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Frame. Each side features three protrusions with the center protrusion in each set featuring molding in the shape of a "12" and four holes in the center, akin to 6. While the aggressive design of the Disc may imply high Burst potential from Disc-to-Layer contact, due to the fact that most Burst Performance Tips are of the same height, such contact is rare. Furthermore, 12's design is so aggressive that there have been numerous cases of the Disc severely damaging Layers that collide with it. Finally, 12 is the lightest Disc at the time of writing, lighter than even Armed which severely hinders Attack, Defense and Stamina potential. While the light weight would create high Burst Resistance, the heavy weight of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System and the Cho-Z Layer System makes the use of lightweight Discs for Burst Resistance obsolete.

Performance Tip - Operate'

Main article: Performance Tip - Operate'

Operate' features an adjustable wide ball tip with two modes, Defense and Attack, which are switched by sliding the bottom portion of the tip,

The Attack Mode has the ball tip off-center with the rest of the Beyblade, meant to create erratic and aggressive movements and even make the Beyblade hop, akin to Quake. The hopping gimmick is meant to create Layer-to-Disc contact and Burst the opponent, but while the effect is more prominent than in Quake, it is still inconsistent. Furthermore, the off-center tip means that Operate''s Attack Mode is incapable of maintaining a Banking Pattern and will instead move near the Tornado Ridge or stay in the center with very poor Stamina.

The Defense Mode has the ball tip center with the rest of the Beyblade, meant to create a steady spin in the center of the stadium. In theory, the wide ball tip would increase a Beyblade's Defense by having greater surface area and friction, however in practice, Operate''s Defense Mode lags behind Defense and even Massive in almost every aspect. On prior ball Performance Tips such as Defense, tabs surrounded the ball to act as brakes by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. Due to the lack of tabs, the Defense Mode's Knock-Out Resistance lags behind Massive which also had poor Knock-Out Resistance. This issue is exacerbated by the surface area of the the Defense Mode as it will create a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in battle, bringing a Beyblade closer to the Tornado Ridge. Due to the aforementioned poor Knock-Out Resistance, this will make a Beyblade using Operate''s Defense Mode highly susceptible to Knock-Outs.
