Strike Valtryek V3 6Vortex Reboot, known as Strike God Valkyrie 6Vortex Reboot (ストライクゴッドヴァルキリー・シックスボルテックス・リブート, Sutoraiku Goddo Varukirī Shikkusu Borutekkusu Ribūto) in Japan, is an Attack Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It was released in western countries as a part of the Battle Tower. Due to the Strike God Chip on Strike Valtryek V3 being purely cosmetic, the gimmick of the Chip doesn't work, making its performance very similar to Genesis Valtryek V3 6Vortex Reboot.
Energy Layer - Strike Valtryek V3
Main article: Energy Layer - Strike Valtryek V3
Strike God Valkyrie is a God Valkyrie Layer that has been fitted with the Strike God Chip. The Strike God Chip fits into the upper center of the Layer and acts as a Metal God Chip while also disabling God Valkyrie's gimmick; its spring-loaded wings.
With the Bound Attack gimmick disabled, Strike God Valkyrie’s wings are locked back into their furthest point, which consolidates the Layer’s primary wings into one piece and exposes another small point of contact. This new contact point is meant to work with the existing points of contact to, in theory, create a three hit “Barrage Attack”. In practice however, this instead reduces recoil by covering up the primary blade. Fortunately, the lack of a spring means that the impact is not cushioned and ensures that the Attack potential of Strike God Valkyrie exceeds that of its predecessor. However, this also means that its risk of Bursts is heavily increased due to the non-cushioned impacts against the wide wings, akin to Legend Spriggan's Left-Spin Mode, though the recoil reducing sub-wings covering the primary wing and strong teeth of the Takara Tomy release can compensate.
While Strike God Valkyrie has greater Burst Attack than its predecessor, the weight increase given by the Strike God Chip is too minuscule to allow the Layer to compare with the weights of current Top-Tier Attack Layers such as Sieg Xcalibur.
Unlike the Takara Tomy Strike God Valkyrie, Hasbro's release of Strike Valtryek V3 is purely a cosmetic change with the Bound Attack gimmick still in place. As such, it is no different than Genesis Valtryek V3 and thus one should refer to the Genesis Valtryek V3 page for information on performance.
Forge Disc - 6
Main article: Forge Disc - 6
6, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features three, loop shaped protrusions. 6's overall shape resembles that of 7's which implies the same weight distribution ideal for Attack. However, 6 is hindered by its relatively light weight caused by the thinness of the protrusions and the four large holes in the center of the Core Disc where the Performance Tip is meant to sit. While 6 is still heavier than normal Forge Discs such as Heavy and Gravity, numerous other Core Discs such as 2, 4, 5 and 7 are far heavier with better weight distributions.
Disc Frame - Vortex
Main article: Disc Frame - Vortex
Vortex is a wide and triangular Disc Frame with wave like details on each side. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer, Vortex's wide shape makes it one of the heavier Disc Frames in the game, which grants high Attack potential when paired with Core Discs such as 7.
Performance Tip - Reboot
Main article: Performance Tip - Reboot
Reboot is a plastic flat tipped Performance Tip that features an automatic tip change gimmick, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Final Drive, with a round tip like a smaller Accel and an eight pointed star tip like an upsized Jaggy.
Early in battle, the centrifugal force of the Beyblade's spin will force two spring loaded tabs outward which will in turn force the round tip out. As the tip's diameter is smaller than Blow's, the resulting movement pattern is only mildly aggressive, having trouble reaching the Tornado Ridge. While a small diameter would imply ease of control, the height of the tip means that a Reboot-based Combination can become easily destabilized like Blow in this state.
Later in battle, the drop in centrifugal force will allow the tabs to retract along with the round tip, creating contact with the wider, Jaggy style tip. In theory this tip change is meant to create a last minute burst of Attack power, but in practice the low spin velocity will make poor hits and reduce Stamina when it is most important.
While poor in Attack potential, Reboot has potential in Tornado Staller Combinations as the tip change will keep a Beyblade away from the center for longer periods of time.
However, early releases of Reboot has a history of being "sticky" where the tips do not transition properly, sometimes the center tip stays extended for the entire battle, retracts too late into the battle or failing to extend at all. It is recommended to use Reboot heavily in order to make the mechanism action smooth.
- Like its predecessor Valtryek V2 Boost Variable and Genesis Valtryek V3 6Vortex Reboot, Strike Valtryek's Japanese name, Strike God Valkyrie, is based on "Strike", "God" and Valkyrie, a female Norse warrior that rode winged horses to combat.
