Energy Layer - Noctemis N3
Main article: Energy Layer - Noctemis N3
Noctemis N3 is an Attack Type Layer that features an overall elliptical design, akin to the Flash Metal Wheel from Metal Fight Beyblade. One side of the Layer features a face, meant to represent the Layer's Japanese namesake; Nemesis, Greek Goddess of Revenge. As part of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Noctemis N3 features a gimmick; the Layer can be set in two different modes, Smash/Colossus Mode and Upper Mode.
In Smash/Colossus Mode, the primary point of contact is a downward slope, meant for Force Smash. While the intended Force Smash can occur, the effect is inconsistent and is liable to destabilizing the Noctemis N3 Combination instead of the opponent.
In Upper Mode, the primary point of contact is an upward slope, meant for Upper Attack. Due to the height of the Layer, the opponent’s Layer is likely to contact the slope which will tilt and destabilize the opponent’s Combination, reducing their Stamina and increasing their risk of Bursts from the recoil of Noctemis N3’s elliptical shape. Of the two modes, Upper Mode has greater success.
To compensate for the recoil, Twin Nemesis features tall teeth on the Japanese release and the Upper Mode can mitigate excessive recoil and subsequent Self-Burst risk. Furthermore, the design of the gimmick focuses weight towards the perimeter, granting the Layer high Outward Weight Distribution and subsequent Stamina. As such, Twin Nemesis is ideal for Attack Combinations with mobile Tips with high Stamina such as Accel or Iron.
Forge Disc - 2
Main article: Forge Disc - 2
2, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion with "2" shaped molding on either side of the protrusion. 2 has a standard weight distribution and an average weight among Core Discs, these features allow it to act as a "Jack-of-All-Trades", capable of performing well in any type of Combination. While other Core Discs such as 4 and 7 can work better for Attack, Defense and Stamina, 2 works as an excellent alternative if those Core Discs are unavailable.
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 Tip's shape and surface area, Jaggy will create a moderately aggressive movement pattern with speeds exceeding Accel. However the rough perimeter of Jaggy will make it difficult to maintain a Banking Pattern while also heavily reducing Stamina.
