- This article is about the Hasbro version. For the Takara Tomy version, see Energy Layer - Emperor Forneus.
Forneus F4 is an Energy Layer released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the SlingShock System. It debuted in western countries with the release of the SlingShock Starter Pack Forneus F4 0 Yard-S.
In-depth information for Hasbro’s Forneus F4 Energy Layer will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
To facilitate the gimmick of the SlingShock BeyStadiums, Hasbro's Forneus F4 has its metal replaced with regular plastic, increasing its overall speed at the cost of halved weight and inertia. Aside from the removal of metal, it is virtually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Emperor Forneus with the same low-recoil design, destabilization potential, and compatibility with Level Chips. Furthermore, it features sturdy slopes as well. While SwitchStrike Layers such as Balkesh B3 and Spryzen Requiem S3 make better choices for Defense Combinations, Forneus F4's sturdy slopes, low-recoil design and destabilization potential makes it a great alternative if the aforementioned Layers are unavailable.
As such, Hasbro's Forneus F4 is recommended for collection purposes only if one has Balkesh B3 or Spryzen Requiem S3 and is a welcome addition if one does not.
