Energy Layer - Lúinor L3
- Main article: Energy Layer - Luinor L3
Hasbro's Lúinor L3 is a wide and heavy Energy Layer based on Takara Tomy's Nightmare Longinus. It is virtually identical to its Takara Tomy counterpart, and as such features the same four dragon heads in its design, with two surrounding the center and two of following the perimeter. The primary points of contact are two large wings that protrude from both sides of the perimeter, creating high recoil.
As part of the SwitchStrike System, Lúinor L3 features two gimmicks: the dragon heads are made of metal and the Energy Layer has a built-in Forge Disc. While the latter gimmick makes Lúinor L3 incompatible with Forge Discs, it is still compatible with Disc Frames which is attached to notches on the plastic base.
There is a minor mold variation of Lúinor L3: the mold released in the Ultimate Tournament Collection has weaker Burst Resistance than the Starter Pack release. Thus, it is advised for Bladers to seek the Starter Pack release, if possible.
Performance Tip - Destroy
- Main article: Performance Tip - Destroy
Destroy features an eight-pointed star tip, akin to Jaggy, under a free-spinning plate that sits at a standard height.
Due to the tip's shape and diameter, Destroy will create an aggressive movement pattern equivalent to Jaggy with the same moderately controllable movement pattern and speed.
What sets Destroy apart from Jaggy is the free-spinning plate that is meant to stabilize a Beyblade if it is knocked off balance by creating a second point of contact with only minimal Stamina loss due to its free spinning nature. Unlike other Tips with similar gimmicks such as Cycle and Guard, the low placement of Destroy's plate ensures that lock up does not occur, meaning that Destroy's gimmick works as intended.
While Destroy has poor Stamina from the star shaped tip, the smooth perimeter and free-spinning nature of the plate also grants Destroy high Life-After-Death which can allow Combinations to potentially Out-Spin their opponent if a Burst or Knock-Out has not been achieved.
