- This article is about the Hasbro version. For the Takara Tomy version, see Ring - Brave (Takara Tomy).
Hasbro's Brave is a Right-Spin Attack Type Ring with three upward slanted wings, characteristic of the Valtryek line. These wings act as the Ring's main contact points and end in somewhat sharp ends. Unlike its Takara Tomy counterpart, Brave does not feature rubber, instead consisting of a single plastic piece. As such, Brave lacks the Bound Attack capabilities of Takara Tomy's Brave.
The wings of Brave are noticeably shorter and not as steep as their Takara Tomy counterparts. Like other Hasbro Rings, the underside of Brave is considerably more hollow as well, leading to a light weight comparable to SwitchStrike System Energy Layers. The removal of the rubber as well as the modified shapes of the wings leads to a significant reduction in Attack power. Brave is consequently outclassed by other Attack Type Layers for Attack Combinations. Even among Hasbro Energy Layers, Brave is outclassed by the likes of Nightmare Lúinor L3 and Turbo Valtryek V3, which are heavier and have more effective shapes.
Brave's light weight, along with its ineffectual shape, hinders it from any form of competitive success. Other Energy Layers, even within a Hasbro Format, outclass Brave for Attack Combinations.
As such, Hasbro's Brave is recommended for collection purposes only.
