Dragoon Fantom (ドラグーンファントム, Doragūn Fantomu) is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of Beyblade's 15th Anniversary for the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-00 CoroCoro Exclusive Booster Dragoon Fantom Gravity Variable (Aniki Ver.) in December 2017 and was later released in the B-00 wbba. Store Exclusive Booster Dragoon Fantom Gravity Variable on March 3rd, 2018.
Takara Tomy's Dragoon Fantom is an adaptation of the Dual Dragon Attack Ring and Dragoon Bit Chip from the Original Plastic Generation meant for the Burst System. As such it features an overall square/diamond shape with four dragon heads that act as the main contact points and an image of the Bit Beast Dragoon in the center. The only differences between the Energy Layer and the original Attack Ring is that the dragon heads are more compact making the Layer somewhat smaller overall and the "Bit Chip" is irremovable.
Dragoon Fantom features teeth comparable to those on Victory Valkyrie, while such teeth would normally allow a Layer to withstand its own recoil, the pointed shape of each of the heads are so recoil heavy and the Layer is so light in weight due to being so thin, hollow and made from only one layer of plastic that the teeth are still unable to compensate in almost any circumstance.
While Takara Tomy's Dragoon Fantom has strong teeth, its shape is simply too aggressive and its weight is too light to be effective, a factor that is exacerbated with the heavier SwitchStrike/God Layer System. As such, Dragoon Fantom is outclassed by other Layers for Left-Spin Attack such as Nightmare Longinus and Legend Spriggan.
As such, Takara Tomy's Dragoon Fantom is recommended for collection purposes only.
