Energy Layer - Luinor L4
Main article: Energy Layer - Luinor L4
Luinor L4 is a wide Energy Layer designed for Left-Spin Attack that features five dragon heads, representing the anime's rendition of this Layer's beast; a dragon, with one in the center of the Layer and four that line each of the wings that make up the points of contact, creating a diamond and thus aggressive and high recoil design. The snouts of the dragons and the tip of each wing are molded into the shape of spear heads which are meant to represent this Layer's Japanese namesake; the Roman Soldier Longinus of Christian Mythology who stabbed Christ with a lance.
As part of the Cho-Z Layer System and like previous Luinor/Longinus Layers, Bloody Longinus features metal in its design; in this case, each of the outer dragon heads are made of metal. The inclusion of metal makes Bloody Longinus heavier than most SwitchStrike/God Layers.
The heavy weight of Bloody Longinus' metal dragon heads generate high inertia which increases the Layer's KO and Burst potential. However, the Left-Spin nature of Luinor L4 means that it and a Right-Spin opponent's Layer will spin together like gears if they are of similar spin speed, which heavily reduces recoil and the rate of Bursts. However, the recoil-heavy diamond shape can still create strong KO potential, though not to the degree of Luinor L3, in Opposite-Spin battles and makes Luinor L4 outclass its predecessor in Burst Attack potential in Left-Spin vs. Left-Spin battles. Furthermore, Luinor L4 is very wide in shape, which increases its Attack range and allows greater room for error in Banking Patterns. While the opposite spin allows for some degree of Spin Equalization, it is not to the degree of Geist Fafnir or Spriggan Requiem.
The Takara Tomy release of Bloody Longinus features three teeth of medium-high length that are capable of withstanding the recoil this Layer produces, even against another Left-Spin opponent, as the heavy weight further increases Burst Resistance as the Layer's higher inertia can better resist teeth skipping.
Like many other Cho-Z Layers, Bloody Longinus is unbalanced which increases the risk of Bursts, is liable to break Banking Patterns and drains Stamina. However, these issues can be solved with the use of a Level Chip that fits underneath the Layer.
Forge Disc - 10
Main article: Forge Disc - 10
10, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features five protrusions, each molded into the shape of a "10". The protrusions extend further from the center more than other Core Discs which grants 10 high Outward Weight Distribution and subsequent Stamina potential. Furthermore, the size of the protrusions makes 10 one of the heaviest Core Discs at the time of writing, heavier than 7 but less than 0, and grants an ideal weight distribution for Stamina Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential. With the use of Frames, 10 can be used to great effect in any Combination.
