Evil-eye (イビルアイ, Ibiruai) is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-24 Random Booster Vol. 2 Evil-eye Wing Needle on December 26th, 2015.
Takara Tomy's Evil-eye is a round Energy Layer designed for Defense that features a coiled serpent around the perimeter and molding around the center akin to the Iris of the eye, like the Layer's namesake; Evileye.
The perimeter features twelve blades, that at first glance appears to create a rough, high recoil design. However, the direction of the blades means that impacts are instead deflected off of Evil-eye, reducing recoil. Evil-eye also features four teeth of medium length, allowing the Layer to withstand the recoil it does produce.
Due to this Layer's low recoil and strong teeth, Takara Tomy's Evil-eye was an Energy Layer great for Defense Combinations, however it was still outclassed by other, more commonly available Layers such as Neptune and Wyvern due to its relatively rougher design. Furthermore, with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Evil-eye is now too light to stay competitive.
As such, Takara Tomy's Evil-eye is recommended for collection purposes only.
