Betromoth B2, known as Beast Behemoth (ビーストベヒーモス, Bīsuto Behīmosu) in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-63 Booster Beast Behemoth Heavy Hold on November 12th, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Starter Pack Betromoth B2 Heavy Hold.
Betromoth B2 is an overall round Energy Layer, the center of the Layer depicts a beast, like the Layer's namesake, biting down on the circle where the "B" of the Layer resides.
Consisting of a colored bottom layer made up of two jaw like arches and a clear top layer consisting of five, widely spaced blades creating a pinwheel-esque look, the "jaws" and ends of the clear blades of the Layer are covered in small serrations like teeth. While these features may imply that this Layer has a lot or recoil, the height of the Layer means that typically both layers come into contact with the opposing Beyblade and fill in each other's gaps and the slight serrations are too small to cause any noticeable recoil and subsequent Stamina loss.
The Takara Tomy release of Beast Behemoth also features three tall teeth akin to Victory Valkyrie, allowing it to be used in Defense combinations with its moderately low recoil.
Beast Behemoth was a decent Layer for Defense Combinations due to its strong teeth and relatively round shape. However, it was outclassed by Dark Deathscyther and with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Beast Behemoth is too light to be competitive.
As such, Beast Behemoth is recommended for collection purposes only.
Differences in the Hasbro Version
Hasbro's Betromoth B2 is mostly unchanged in shape from Takara Tomy's Beast Behemoth with the same low to moderate recoil. However, the biggest difference is that Betromoth B2 has much weaker Burst resistance, making it poor in Attack, Defense and Stamina Combinations. Furthermore, with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Betromoth B2 is too light to be competitive.
As such, Betromoth B2 is also recommended for collection purposes only.
