The center part of the bey shows two serpents breathing fire. While this well-balanced and defensive-looking shape appears to be a good layer, a quick glance underneath shows that the layer only has one good tooth, with the rest being subpar at best. This unfortunate fact makes Jormuntor J2 an ultimately useless layer.

The layer’s spirit is based on Jörmungandr, also known as the World Serpent, from Norse mythology. Jörmungandr was one of Loki’s three children, who grew so large it encompassed the earth and swallowed its tail. The Layer’s spirit is based on Jörmungandr, also known as the World Serpent, from Norse mythology.

Overall

While Jormuntor J2 has a optimal shape for defense, its poor teeth make it a very risky option for competitive play.

As a result, this part is recommended for collection purposes only.
