Forge Disc - 0
Main article: Forge Disc - 0
0 is a symmetrical Forge Disc that's elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion, each wide and smooth enough to almost make the Forge Disc perfectly circular if not for the notches needed to add a Disc Frame and a molded "0" on each side. The protrusions extend further and are thicker than most other Forge Discs which makes 0 the heaviest Forge Disc at the time of writing and implies high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and Stamina potential. In reality however, more weight is focused towards the center, which creates Centralized Weight Distribution (CWD) that reduces its Stamina to that of 2's. As such, 0 is outclassed by 7 for Stamina Combinations but 0's greater weight makes it ideal for Attack and Defense Combinations. Furthermore, the round shape of 0 creates high Life-After-Death, even without the use of Disc Frames such as Cross. While the weight can increase the risk of Bursts, the weight of most SwitchStrike/God Layers and Cho-Z Layers can compensate.
Performance Tip - Xtreme'
Main article: Performance Tip - Xtreme'
Xtreme', like its predecessor Xtreme, features a flat rubber tip with a circular depression in the center, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Rubber Flat, that sits at the standard height. Unlike its predecessor, Xtreme' features a much thicker spring in its locking mechanism, increasing Xtreme''s Burst resistance and solves the weakness featured in its predecessor.
Due to surface area to friction ratio, Xtreme' will create a highly aggressive, and if launched with a Banking Shoot, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, because it uses softer rubber than its predecessor, Xtreme' is faster than Xtreme and is as fast as or slower than Jolt or a worn Variable. Xtreme''s high speed allows for strong attacks and its high friction creates less chances of losing the Banking Pattern in battle making it the best choice for Attack Combinations at the time of writing.
However, Xtreme' has two major weaknesses. Firstly, the high friction of the rubber means that Xtreme' has incredibly low Stamina, furthermore, the light weight of early Burst System Combinations compared to previous Systems means that there is less inertia, exacerbating the Stamina issue further. Secondly, Xtreme' will wear down with use, decreasing its aggression with little to no improvement to the tip's Stamina, meaning that multiple copies must be purchased in order to replace worn ones. Furthermore, Xtreme''s softer rubber wears down more quickly than Xtreme's.
- Shadow Amaterios is the third Burst Beyblade to skip a generation, the first was Chaos Oval Gyro and the second was Trident Heavy Claw.
- Along with Emperor Forneus 4Glaive Hunter', Shadow Amaterios was one of the first Beyblades to have a dash Performance Tip.
