Gatinko Chip - Diabolos
- Main article: Gatinko Chip - Diabolos 1
Takara Tomy's Diabolos is a dual-spin Gatinko Chip that features a dragon head and claws representing the Gatinko Chip's namesake, a demonic dragon. Unlike other Gatinko Chips, Diabolos has an integrated Layer Weight, with a weight exceeding all Gatinko Chip and Layer Weight combinations. While versatile in both right-spin and left-spin, Diabolos is outclassed in terms of Burst Resistance and weight distribution by other Gatinko Chips such as Achilles and Longinus. However, Diabolos can be used as a second or third option for if weight is a priority and the Goku Layer Weight is unavailable.

Forge Disc - Vanguard
- Main article: Forge Disc - Vanguard (Takara Tomy)
Takara Tomy's Vanguard is a six-bladed Forge Disc that slopes downwards, similar to Armed and Vertical. The inner and bottom edges of Vanguard consist of plastic riveted to a metal frame. Two of the six blades are larger than the others.
The low-lying shape of Vanguard makes it excellent to use in Life-After-Death (LAD) Stamina Combinations, often being used alongside the Bearing' and Rise Performance Tips. Its performance is comparable to 00/10Wall in this aspect, sharing similar roles. Vanguard can also be used in Attack Combinations, although a Blader must be careful to avoid scraping the Stadium floor. Among Gatinko Layer System Forge Discs, Vanguard is a decent all-around Forge Disc.

- Venom Diabolos' name is a combination of "venom", a poisonous substance secreted from selected fauna through a bite or a sting, and "diabolus", the Latin word for "devil".
- Venom Diabolos' avatar bears a similarity to the Balrog from The Lord of the Rings series: a flame-based creature with a curving horn on each side of the head.
- Venom Diabolos is one of the only Gatinko Beyblades to not feature a Layer Weight, the others being Erase Diabolos, Lord Spriggan Blitz Dimension', Master Diabolos Generate, and Imperial Dragon Ignition'.
- The Blue Version of Venom Diabolos only has 100 copies in the world, as it was a CoroCoro Magazine campaign where they selected 100 winners who were given this special Blue Version.
- Venom Diabolos is the second Beyblade to battle in the Burst anime to not be burst in an on-screen battle, first being Slash Valkyrie Blitz Power Retsu.
- This Beyblade's Driver gimmick is similar to Revive Phoenix 10 Friction and Dead Phoenix 0 Atomic's Armor gimmicks.
