Winning Valkyrie 3 Yielding (ウイニングヴァルキリー・スリー・イールディング, Uiningu Varukirī Surī Īrudingu) is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It was released in Japan on July 14th, 2018 for 993円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 11 Vise Leopard.12L.Ds.
Energy Layer - Winning Valkyrie
- Main article: Energy Layer - Winning Valkyrie
Takara Tomy's Winning Valkyrie is an Attack Type Energy Layer, the center features a feathered, armored face facing forward, akin to its predecessor God Valkyrie, meant to represent the Layer's namesake; Odin's handmaidens of Norse mythology, albeit changed to match the anime's rendition; an armored knight. Like its predecessors, Winning Valkyrie features three large wings as the primary points of contact, granting the Layer high Knock-Out and Burst Attack potential. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Winning Valkyrie features metal in its design; in this case, concentrated on the wings.
The inclusion of metal makes Winning Valkyrie heavier than most God Layers and improves Attack Potential by increasing the weight of the Layer, granting higher inertia that increases both Knock-Out and Burst Attack as well as increasing the Layer's Burst Resistance as the high inertia resists teeth skipping, a property that compliments the tall teeth of Winning Valkyrie. Due to these factors and the shape of the blades, Winning Valkyrie performs well in Attack Combinations. However, the wings of Winning Valkyrie are made at an obtuse angle, more so than its predecessors which hinders recoil, though the weight of the Layer can compensate.
Like many other Cho-Z Layers, Winning Valkyrie is unbalanced which increases Burst risk, is liable to break Banking Patterns and drains Stamina. However, these issues can be solved with the use of a Level Chip that fits underneath the Layer.
Forge Disc - 3
- Main article: Forge Disc - 3
3, unlike every other odd numbered Core Disc released before it, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Frame. Each side features three small protrusions, akin to Knuckle and 8, which is looped and molded into the shape of a "3".
In addition to the "3" shapes, 3 features a heavy ring in the center. The heavy ring provides 3 with a Centralized Weight Distribution (CWD), akin to Yell and Central. This type of weight distribution provides multiple advantages, such as having high Knock-Out Resistance from the centralized weight, and having high Attack potential due to the higher spin velocity. Furthermore, due to 3's large size and smooth bottom, it has high Life-After-Death without a Frame. However, the centralized weight provides 3 with numerous drawbacks as well.
Due to the lack of Outward Weight Distribution (OWD), Defense and Stamina Combinations using 3 will not be able to maintain spin after heavy impacts, which creates poor spin retention. If used in Attack Combinations, the centralized weight will slow down the movement of Mobile Attack Combinations. Furthermore, 3's light weight of 21.6 grams makes it outclassed by many other Core Discs.
Performance Tip - Yielding
- Main article: Performance Tip - Yielding
Yielding features a cone shaped tip made of PolyOxyMethylene (POM) thermoplastic rather than traditional plastic, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Polish Defense. Yielding's gimmick is that the POM plastic has less friction against the stadium floor than traditional plastic, increasing a Combination's Stamina. Embossed into the top of the Performance Tip is a stylized 'Y' for easy differentiation.
Due to the lowered friction, Yielding yields high amounts of Stamina and procession time, however this low friction also brings lowered Knock-Out Resistance and Stability. The Stability issue is further exacerbated by the angle of the cone; unlike Metal Fight Beyblade's Defense Tip, the angle of Yielding is more acute, akin to Big Wide Defense, causing an increase in the risk of floor scrapes. It is possible to improve the Stability somewhat by wearing down the tip, however the low friction means that this takes time.
