Valkyrie (ヴァルキリー, Varukirī) is a DB Core released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dynamite Battle Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-187 Starter Savior Valkyrie Shot-7 on July 17th, 2021.

Valkyrie 1, much like its predecessors, is a Right Spinning DB Core that depicts the face of its namesake. As part of the Dynamite Battle Layer System, it is meant to be used with the high and low modes of a Dynamite Battle Layer.

Valkyrie 1 features a spring inside, meant to give any Blade using it Bound Attack potential akin to God Valkyrie, but much like God Valkyrie, the bound gimmick isn't too prominent. Furthermore, much like Tornado Wyvern, the Core has only 2 shallow teeth that the Bound Gimmick is meant to compensate for, but results in Low Burst Resistance, making it ill suited for Attack combinations.

That said, due to the spring, Valkyrie 1 is one of the heavier DB Cores, allowing it to find use in stamina oriented combinations.

There are currently 3molds of Valkyrie 1, the original from Savior Valkyrie Shot-7, and another from Random Booster Volume 27. The thin teeth of Valkyrie 1 make it easy to wear, but the second mold somewhat addresses that, as well as increasing the tautness of the bound gimmick (and reducing wear), making it the preferred mold.
==Use in Defense/Stamina Combinations==
Valkyrie 1 can be used in the Stamina/Defense combination Dynamite+F Valkyrie 1 Over/Tapered Bearing'-0/10. The high stamina of Dynamite+F and Bearing' is bolstered by Valkyrie 1's weight and the combination's KO Resistance is increased by Over/Tapered's high weight and said discs also increase its LAD. 0/10 are selected due to their heavy weight and high OWD. When going against an opposite spin opponent, Prominence can be used as a substitute.
Valkyrie 1, despite being meant for Attack, has weak burst resistance than can't withstand the recoil of such combinations. However, its high weight allows it to become one of the best Cores for Stamina.
However, with the release of Belial 2, which has comparable Stamina and superior Burst Resistancve, the Dragon DB Core, which has the same bound ability but better stability and much better Burst Resistance, Valkyrie 1 has become outclassed.
As such, Valkyrie 1 is for collection purposes only.
