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 - Vex

Main article: Ring - Vex

Hasbro's Vex is a right-spin Defense Type Ring that features twelve small points along the perimeter of the Ring. The points are angled downward in order to deflect attacks. Despite being designed for Defense, Vex is recoil heavy due to its shape; the twelve points stick outward too prominently. Furthermore, Vex's light weight creates low inertia, which combined with the high recoil design, makes it prone to Bursts. As a result, Vex's shape is ineffective for Attack Combinations, and its weight is ineffective for Defense and Stamina Combinations. Even within the Burst Limited and Hasbro-Only formats, there are more viable Energy Layers available.

Forge Disc - 3A-D

Main article: Forge Disc - 3A-D

3A-D is a Forge Disc based on Takara Tomy’s 3A Chassis. As such, it is intended to match the shape of the Raid Ring. 3A-D is composed of a metal core and a plastic perimeter riveted to it, similar to Takara Tomy's Drake. The design is very jagged and spiky, having four main plastic contact points, two of which point downward. The shape of the metal synergizes with the Longinus/Luinor series of Layers.

Despite its aggressive shape, 3A-D suffers from an extremely light weight that is similar to Discs released during the Dual Layer System. In addition, 3A-D does not protrude enough on most Layers to provide use of its contact points. Unlike the 3A Chassis it is based on, 3A-D does not effectively provide Raid or any other Layer with additional Attack power. Due to its lack of compatibility with Disc Frames, it is also unable to improve its weight and weight distribution.
