Baldur (バルドゥール, Barudūru), stylized as βaldur, is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-00β Rare Bey Get Battle Exclusive Booster Baldur Bumper Bite on June 25th, 2016.
Takara Tomy's Baldur is a Defense Type Energy Layer that features a decagonal shape with a face on the right side, meant to represent this Layer's namesake; Baldur the Nordic God of Light. Each side of the decagonal shape alternates between a shield like protrusion and a smaller protrusion made of clear plastic. While such a rough perimeter may imply high recoil, the obtuse angle from the decagonal shape and the small gaps limit recoil enough for Baldur's medium length teeth to withstand. Due to these features, Baldur performs well in Defense Combinations, however it lags behind other Layers such as Dark Deathscyther and Alter Chronos.
Takara Tomy's Baldur has features that work towards decent Defensive properties, however Layers such as Dark Deathscyther outclass it due to Baldur's rough perimeter and only average Stamina. Furthermore, with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Baldur has become too light in comparison.
As such, Takara Tomy's Baldur is recommended for collection purposes only.
