Exceed Evil-eye (エクシードイビルアイ, Ekushīdo Ibiruai) is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BG-04 Random Layer Collection Vol. 4 on October 24th, 2016 and was later released in Random Booster Vol. 6 Tornado Wyvern.4G.At on April 29th, 2017.
Takara Tomy's Exceed Evil-eye is a Defense Type Energy Layer with the center of it featuring the head of a Horned Serpent and molding akin to the Iris of the Eye, representing the Layer's namesake; Evil-eye.
The Layer's perimeter is made up of six blades, three made of colored plastic and three made of clear plastic. The colored blades are wide and make up most of the perimeter, while the clear blades are small and party fill up the gaps in between the colored blades, creating a design akin to the Smash Turtle Attack Ring from the Original Plastic Generation.
Despite the resemblance, Exceed Evil-eye has poor performance due to the Layer's mediocre teeth and recoil inducing design caused the large gaps. However, the shape allows Exceed Evil-eye to act as a consistent counter against Maximum Garuda, catching into Maximum Garuda's notches and Bursting it, though such usefulness is niche.
Takara Tomy's Exceed Evil-eye features a design too recoil heavy for Defense and teeth too short for Attack. Furthermore, with the release of SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Exceed Evil-eye is too light to stay competitive. While it can act as consistent counter against the top-tier Maximum Garuda, such usefulness is niche and Exceed Evil-eye's weak performance would make it a risk in tournament use.
As such, Takara Tomy's Exceed Evil-eye is recommended for collection purposes only.
