- This article is about the Takara Tomy version. For the Hasbro version, see Energy Layer - Left Astro A4.
Left Apollos (レフトアポロス, Refuto Aporosu), stylized as Left αpollos, is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-126 Cho-Z Musou Beystadium on October 20th, 2018.
Takara Tomy's Left Apollos is a Left-Spin Defense Type Energy Layer that features an overall round, spiked perimeter. The left side of the Layer features a face, meant to represent the Layer’s namesake; Apollo, the god of sun and light in Greek and Roman Mythology. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Left Apollos features metal in its design; in this case, lining the perimeter. The inclusion of metal makes it heavier than most God Layers. Left Apollos also features a gimmick; like its predecessor Duo Apollos and its counterpart Right Artemis, the Layer can be split in half to form either Right Eclipse or Left Eclipse.
The pointed design of the Layer makes Left Apollos ill-suited for Defense or Stamina Combinations and while the design may imply Attack potential, the gaps between the spikes are too small to create the necessary recoil to do so. Furthermore, Left Apollos' shape creates a high Burst risk, even when against Right-Spin opponents.
Due to the gimmick, Left Apollos is also incompatible with a Level Chip.
With too much recoil for Defense and Stamina, too little recoil for Attack and a severe Burst risk, Takara Tomy's Left Apollos is outclassed by many other Layers such as Archer Hercules and Hell Salamander.
As such, Takara Tomy's Left Apollos is recommended for collection purposes only.
