Victory Valkyrie Upper Quake (ビクトリーヴァルキリー・アッパー・クエイク, Bikutorī Varukirī Appā Kueiku) is an Attack Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in Japan on August 6th, 2016 for 2700円 as part of the Triple Booster Set.
Energy Layer - Victory Valkyrie
Main article: Energy Layer - Victory Valkyrie
Like its predecessor Valkyrie, Takara Tomy's Victory Valkyrie has three upward slanted wings that excel at Knock-Out Attack but the Layer falls behind its predecessor Valkyrie at giving Bursts. Unlike Valkyrie's teeth, the teeth of Victory Valkyrie have no problem with wear due to them having greater width, following the model introduced with Xcalibur. The teeth are also very tall which allows the Layer to withstand its own recoil and avoid Self-Bursts which made this Layer an excellent choice for Attack Combinations.
There are three minor mold variations of Victory Valkyrie: the first mold had completely hollow wings which made it very fragile and prone to breaking; the second mold, introduced with the Rich Green Version, has added bars within the wings for reinforcement. However, despite these reinforcements, this Layer continued to suffer cases of breaks. The third, most recent mold, introduced in the B-64 Beyblade Super Custom Set Heavy Ver., includes a reinforced center ring along with the aforementioned bars within the wings, which not only addresses most of the breakage issues but also causes the part to weigh about half a gram more than its first mold variation. It is advised to find a third generation mold because of this increased weight and durability, though the first and second versions will suffice if one is prepared to replace them.
Forge Disc - Upper

Upper features two sloped metal wings that, in theory, provide Upper Force in Right-Spin and Down Force in Left-Spin. However, in practice, the low angle and short width of the wings makes any Upper or Down Force effect negligible. Furthermore, Upper is light in weight, lower than the more popular choices for Stamina; 4 and 7, making its Knock-Out Resistance sub-par compared to the aforementioned Discs.
Performance Tip - Quake
Main article: Performance Tip - Quake
Quake features an elliptical shaped flat tip that is off center of the Performance Tip, meant to make the Beyblade that it is connected to jump around the stadium akin to Quake in Metal Fight Beyblade. However, due to how shallow the tip's angle is as well as how little it is off center, the effect is not consistent and must rely on a lightweight and off balance Combination as well as a heavily angled launch. The hopping gimmick is meant to create Disc-to-Layer contact and Burst the opponent, however the aforementioned lack of consistency in the effect makes such an attack method not recommended for competitive play. Furthermore, the offset and slanted tip means that Quake is incapable of maintaining a Banking Pattern and will grind against the Tornado Ridge, making Quake ill-suited for Mobile Attack and Tornado Staller Combinations in general.
