Storm Chip - Dragon D6

Main article: Storm Chip - Dragon D6

Hasbro's Dragon D6 is a right-spin Storm Chip that features the side profile of the Storm Chip's namesake, a dragon and its claws, akin to its GT Chip predecessor Evo Dragon D5. Dragon D6 has an above average weight for Hasbro Storm Chips and features the highest Burst Resistance out of all the right-spin Storm Chips. As such, Dragon D6 outclasses virtually all other right-spin Storm Chips.

Ring - Triumph

Main article: Ring - Triumph

Triumph is a Right-Spin Attack Type Ring with four primary attacking blades, which are stylized like dragon wings. Unlike most Attack Type Energy Layers, these blades are less pronounced. This is because, unlike its Takara Tomy counterpart Tempest, Triumph does not have the "Awakened Mode" gimmick, which extends four "Bound Blades" outwards, accounting for the round shape of Tempest. As such, Triumph is based on Tempest's "Bound Mode" configuration. Like other Hasbro Rings, Triumph cannot use a Chassis and the underside of Triumph is hollow, leading to a light weight comparable to SwitchStrike System Energy Layers.

Despite these changes, Triumph finds use in the WBO's Burst Limited Format. Its performance is comparable to that of Tide Treptune T3 and Archer Hercules H4, with a similar mix of Defense and Stamina traits. Triumph has a round design with high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD), and unlike most Hasbro Rings, it is not raised as much, reducing its likelihood of destabilising.

Forge Disc - Armed

Main article: Forge Disc - Armed

Armed is a symmetrical Forge Disc with six round shield-like protrusions and engravings along with two bumps on either side that make room for the Forge Disc's slots. While it has a bulky appearance implying a heavy weight, in reality it is actually very light due to how hollow it is. Armed’s lightness gave it the greatest Burst Resistance of any Forge Disc at the time while the relatively smooth surface reduced recoil when struck if paired with a Performance Tip with poor Stability. However, this same lightness severely reduced Knock-Out Defense and Stamina as a trade-off.

Performance Tip - Charge Metal-SPM

Main article: Performance Tip - Charge Metal-SPM

Charge Metal-SPM is a rather large and bulky tip, with most of the contact surface with the stadium being made of metal. As a result, it is currently the heaviest Performance Tip. However, outside of weight, this Performance Tip does not offer much. This Performance Tip's height, as well as it's large weight compared to most Hasbro Layers, makes it highly unstable, and negates any stamina potential the Zephyr style tip would offer. It is taller and has a wider tip than its Takara Tomy counterpart, Charge Metal, which was already outclassed, and these properties make Charge Metal-SPM even more unstable, and therefore, even less viable than its counterpart.

Trivia

  • On the box art for this Starter Pack, the Triumph Ring appears in its Awakened Mode, although Hasbro's Triumph Ring only features its Bound Mode.
