- This article is about the Hasbro version. For the Takara Tomy version, see Energy Layer - Maximum Garuda.
Garuda G3 is an Energy Layer released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the SwitchStrike System. It debuted in western countries with the release of the SwitchStrike Starter Pack Garuda G3 8Flow Flugel.
In-depth information for Hasbro’s Garuda G3 Energy Layer will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
Hasbro's Garuda G3 is virtually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Maximum Garuda with the Upper Force gimmick, large size and Stamina potential intact. The slopes of Garuda G3 also grant the Layer greater Burst Resistance than its Takara Tomy counterpart, making Garuda G3 banned in tournament play as well.
While now legal for tournament play once more, Garuda G3 is still a must have for competitive bladers in the Burst Standard and Hasbro-Only Formats.
