Legend Spryzen S3 is an Energy Layer released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the SwitchStrike System. It debuted in western countries with the release of the SwitchStrike Starter Pack Legend Spryzen S3 7 Merge.
Hasbro's Legend Spryzen S3 is virtually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Legend Spriggan with the same Dual-Spin capabilities. Legend Spryzen S3 is a Balance Type Energy Layer made from four large blades, two of which feature faces on them which are meant to represent the Layer's namesake. As part of the SwitchStrike System, Legend Spryzen S3 features the following gimmicks: metal in the form of an irremovable God Chip and Dual-Spin.
Due to the asymmetrical design of the Energy Layer, the performance of Legend Spryzen S3 changes depending on the spin direction.
In Right-Spin Mode, the primary points of contact are the black blades which are sloped to facilitate Upper Attack. While the intended Upper Attack has some success, due to the thickness of the blades however, contact is more likely to be made on the tips of the blades, producing Spike Attack and subsequent high Burst Attack. However, due to how the black blades are shaped and how compact they are, Legend Spryzen S3 can only be used on high friction and high speed rubber Tips such as Xtreme or else the Combination will Self-Burst.
In Left-Spin Mode, the primary points of contact are the flat faces of the clear blades which are meant to create Smash Attack. However, due to the nature of the Burst System, such a heavy recoil design creates a high Self-Burst risk instead. While Left-Spin Mode can work against other Left-Spin Layers, Right-Spin Mode has greater success overall.
Due to the high recoil design of the blades, Legend Spryzen S3 is ill-suited for Stationary Combinations, however, the heavy weight of the Layer, shape of the blades and the strong teeth of Legend Spryzen S3 make this Layer a top-tier choice in Attack Combinations.
Hasbro's Legend Spryzen S3 is virtually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Legend Spriggan with the Dual-Spin gimmick intact. The only difference is that the Metal God Chip is thinner to facilitate the code for the Beyblade Burst App Game creating a negligibly lighter weight. With the use of slopes, Legend Spryzen S3 does not wear down.
As such, Hasbro's Legend Spryzen S3 is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to any blader's collection as well as a must have for competitive bladers in the Hasbro-Only Format.
Use in Attack Combinations
Legend Spryzen S3 can be put to use in the Attack Combination Legend Spryzen S3 2/4/7 Meteor/Vortex Xtreme/Hunter. The heavy weight of 2/4/7 Meteor/Vortex bolsters the Attack Potential of the Layer. The high speed and friction of Xtreme/Hunter allows the Layer to Burst or Knock-Out opponents without Self-Bursting while Legend Spryzen S3's slopes and heavy weight compensates for the Burst risk of heavy Discs and high friction Tips.
- Legend Spryzen S3 is the second SwitchStrike Layer released to have a prefix before its name and code, the first being Genesis Valtryek V3.
