Left Astro A4, stylized as Left αstro A4, known as Left Apollos (レフトアポロス, Refuto Aporosu) in Japan, stylized as Left αpollos, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-126 Cho-Z Musou Beystadium on October 20th, 2018. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Cross Collision Battle Set.
Left Astro A4 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 SwitchStrike/God Layers. Left Astro A4 also features a gimmick; like its predecessor Duo Apollos and its counterpart Right Artemis A4, the Layer can be split in half to form either Right Eclipse or Left Eclipse.
The pointed design of the Layer makes Left Astro A4 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 Astro A4 is also incompatible with a Level Chip.
As such, Left Apollos is recommended for collection purposes only.
