Horusood H2, known as Holy Horusood (ホーリーホルスード, Hōrī Horusūdo) in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-44 Booster Holy Horusood Upper Claw on May 28th, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Starter Pack Horusood H2 Upper Claw.

Description

Horusood H2 is a Stamina Type Energy Layer that features a bird in the center looking left, shown with the Eye of Horus and four feathered blades that make up the bird's wings, two of which consist of clear plastic and two of which consist of colored plastic that are waved. All meant to represent the Layer's namesake; Horus, the falcon headed Egyptian god.

Like Wyvron W2, while Horusood H2 seems round at first glance, but upon closer inspection its actually square in shape. Each of the corners of this square-like shape and the waves of the two colored blades create points of recoil that make it unsuitable for Stamina Combinations, while the waved blades do allow for some degree of destabilization, the feathered design makes them too rough to be suited for such a purpose. For the Takara Tomy release of Holy Horusood, this problem is further exacerbated by the fact that it features four teeth, the first short in length, and the last three are medium-short in length. As such, it is prone to losses by Bursts, as the teeth are unable to withstand the recoil the Layer creates.

Overall

Holy Horusood suffers from a recoil producing design and average teeth unable to withstand the recoil. While the waved design can produce some destabilization, they too are unreliable for such a purpose. Furthermore, with the release of Cho-Z Layers such as Hell Salamander and Archer Hercules, Holy Horusood is far too light to be competitive.

As such, Holy Horusood is recommended for collection purposes only.

Differences in the Hasbro Version

Hasbro's Horusood H2 is virtually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Holy Horusood with the same square recoil-inducing shape and only moderate Burst Resistance. Furthermore, with the release of SwitchStrike Layers such as Spryzen Requiem S3 and Kerbeus K4, Horusood H2 is not only outclassed Stamina wise, but is also too light to be competitive.

As such, Horusood H2 is also recommended for collection purposes only.
