Amaterios (アマテリオス, Amateriosu), stylized as αmaterios, is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-00α Booster Amaterios Aero Assault in August 2015.
Takara Tomy's Amaterios is an Attack Type Energy Layer that features a face on the left side, meant to represent this Layer's namesake; the Shinto Goddess of the Sun Amaterasu, and an overall pentagonal or star shape. Such a shape creates five points of recoil which grants Amaterios high Burst and KO potential while the tall teeth are capable of withstanding the Layer's recoil. Furthermore, among the Single Layers, Amaterios has high weight which further bolsters Burst resistance and Attack potential.
However, Amaterios lags behind Valkyrie and Xcalibur in Attack Combinations as the pentagonal shape means that each point of contact is at an obtuse angle which reduces recoil compared to the triangular Valkyrie or the sword point of Xcalibur. Furthermore, as a pre-Xcalibur Single Layer, Amaterios' teeth will wear down quickly with use, so if one prefers to use Amaterios, it is recommended to have multiple copies of this Layer and to be prepared to replace it.
Use in Attack Combinations
Amaterios can be put to use in the Attack Combination Amaterios Heavy/Gravity/2/4/5/7 Bump/Meteor/Star/Vortex Xtreme/Accel/Assault/Iron/Zephyr. The heavy weight of Heavy/Gravity/2/4/5/7 Bump/Meteor/Star/Vortex bolsters Amaterios' Burst potential while the Layer's strong teeth can compensate for the increased Burst risk. The high speed of Xtreme/Accel/Assault/Iron/Zephyr further adds to the combination's Burst potential while Accel/Assault/Iron/Zephyr can add greater Stamina and the potential to counter Tornado Staller Combinations.
Takara Tomy's Amaterios features a high recoil design, strong teeth and heavy weight for its time. However, the obtuse angles of the pentagonal shape made Amaterios outclassed by Valkyrie and Xcalibur. Furthermore, with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Amaterios is now too light to remain viable in the current metagame.
As such, Takara Tomy's Amaterios is recommended for collection purposes only.
