Energy Layer - Nepstrius N2
Main article: Energy Layer - Nepstrius N2
Nepstrius N2 is a Balance Type Energy Layer that features three sloped wave-like blades, with three smaller sloped blades in between. In the center is a face on each side, meant to represent the Layer's Japanese namesake; Neptune, the god of the sea in Roman Mythology. Unlike its predecessor, Nepstrius, Nepstrius N2 has some recoil due to its sloped blades. As a result, it does not have as much Defense capabilities like its predecessor. While it is decent in terms of Stamina, it is surpassed by many other Layers. Nepstrius N2 also has sub-par Attack, making it ill-suited for Attack Combinations as well. For the Takara Tomy release of Nova Neptune, its weak teeth further aggravate this issue, being somewhat mediocre compared to other Dual Layers. Due to its weak performance, it is rendered outclassed by Neptune.
Forge Disc - Vertical
Main article: Forge Disc - Vertical
Vertical is shaped somewhat like an upside-down funnel, similarly its predecessor Armed. However, unlike Armed, which has a more gradual and rounded slope, Vertical’s slope begins at a sharper angle and continues downward in a straight line. Vertical also sports a jagged, line-like design, which forms the outline for several holes on the disc’s exterior and eight protrusions on its underside. Despite resembling Armed in terms of shape, Vertical does not offer the same resistance to Bursting that Armed is notable for, while also possessing less Stamina than Top-Tier Forge Discs such as Spread and Gravity.
Performance Tip - Zephyr
Main article: Performance Tip - Zephyr
Zephyr features a flat tip with a hole in its surface, akin to the Hole Flat Performance Tip from the Metal Saga. A stylized letter Z is embossed on the top of the Performance Tip for easy differentiation.
Zephyr moves aggressively around the stadium; it gradually moves towards the center as its velocity decreases. Despite raw attacks that aren't generally as hard as Xtreme, Zephyr compensates for this and provides Stamina, allowing for increased versatility and viability in Attack/Stamina Hybrids as a result.
