Energy Layer - Minoboros M2
Main article: Energy Layer - Minoboros M2
Minoboros M2 is an Attack Type Layer, based on the Greek legend of the Minotaur. It has a shape similar to the original Minoboros, but it is more aggressive in design, with the blades being more curved and flared out. It still retains a similar imbalance, however, unlike Minoboros, this Layer has less Stamina due to its more aggressive design traits. Despite the design however, this Layer does not have as many major attack points as its predecessor and therefore is not as good at Burst Attack as the original. While the Takara Tomy release of Mad Minoboros features strong teeth to the point of "sticking", it does little to compensate for the poor performance.
Forge Disc - Knuckle
Main article: Forge Disc - Knuckle
Knuckle is a circular Forge Disc with six notches around the perimeter and four holes near the center of the Forge Disc. The letter "K" is written on its prongs for easy differentiation from other Forge Discs. Due to the holes in the Disc, Most of the weight of Knuckle is focused around its perimeter giving it high Outward Weight Distribution which results in excellent Stamina properties. However, it lags behind other Forge Discs like Spread and Gravity in terms of Stamina potential.
Although, one advantage Knuckle holds over the aforementioned Forge Discs is increased Burst resistance which only falls behind Down and Armed, both of which suffer from scraping issues and low Stamina respectively. Due to its good Stamina, decent weight and high Burst resistance, Knuckle was once an excellent Forge Disc for all kinds of Combinations. However, Knuckle has one major weakness, the protrusions nullify Life After Death potential which is detrimental in the current Life After Death centered metagame.
Performance Tip - Jaggy
Main article: Performance Tip - Jaggy
Jaggy features a flat, eight-pointed star tip with a depression in the center. Due to this Performance Tip's shape and surface area, Jaggy will create a moderately aggressive movement pattern with speeds exceeding Accel's. However, the rough perimeter of Jaggy will make it difficult to maintain a Banking Pattern while also heavily reducing Stamina in the process.
