Dragoon Storm (ドラグーンストーム, Doragūn Sutōmu) 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 Storm Wing Xtreme (Aniki Ver.) in November 2016 and was later released in the B-00 wbba.

Description

Takara Tomy's Dragoon Storm is an adaptation of the Reverse 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 non-removable.

Dragoon Storm 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 very thin and hollow that the teeth are still unable to compensate in almost any circumstance.

Overall

While Takara Tomy's Dragoon Storm 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, it is outclassed by other Layers for Left-Spin Attack such as Nightmare Longinus and Legend Spriggan.

As such, Takara Tomy's Dragoon Storm is recommended for collection purposes only.
