- This article is about the Takara Tomy version. For the Hasbro version, see Energy Layer - Fusion Aether.
Left Eclipse (レフトエクリプス, Refuto Ekuripusu), stylized as Left αeclipse, 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 Eclipse is a Left-Spin Balance Type Energy Layer that is the result of the combination of Left Apollos and Right Artemis with Left Apollos' center piece via the two Layers' shared gimmick. The left side features the Left Apollos half with multiple spikes on each side and the right side features the Right Artemis half with three blades. The combinations of Left Apollos, the sun, and Right Artemis, the moon, represent the Layer's namesake; an eclipse. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Left Eclipse features metal in its design; lining the blades. The inclusion of metal makes the Layer heavier than most God Layers.
The hybrid design of Left Eclipse is meant to create a mixed performance between Defense and Attack, however, like most Balance Type parts, this leads to mediocre performance in both categories. Furthermore, both sides feature too little recoil for Attack potential and too much recoil for Defense and Stamina potential, even when against Opposite-Spin opponents.
Due to the gimmick, Left Eclipse is also incompatible with a Level Chip.
With too little recoil for Attack and too much recoil for Defense and Stamina, Takara Tomy's Left Eclipse is outclassed by many other Layers such as Winning Valkyrie.
As such, Takara Tomy's Left Eclipse is recommended for collection purposes only.
