Legend Spryzen S3, known as Legend Spriggan (レジェンドスプリガン, Regendo Supurigan) in Japan, is a God Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It debuted with the release of B-86 Starter Legend Spriggan 7 Merge on July 1st, 2017.
Legend Spryzen 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 Japanese namesake; Spriggans, monsters of Cornish Faery Lore, and the center of the Layer features a large double bladed ax, meant to represent the weapon of the anime's rendition of this Layer's beast. As part of the Switch-Strike/God Layer System, Legend Spryzen features gimmicks; The Layer contains metal the form of an irremovable God Chip. The Layer itself is Dual Spin, unlike every other Layer before it, with two sets of teeth on the Japanese release for Right Spin Mode and Left Spin Mode.
Due to the asymmetrical design of the Layer, Legend Spryzen's performance 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 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 such as Drain Fafnir, Right Spin Mode has greater success overall.
Due to the high recoil design of the blades, Legend Spryzen is ill-suited for stationary combinations, however, the heavy weight of the Layer, shape of the blades and the strong teeth of the Japanese release of Legend Spriggan make this Layer a top-tier choice in Attack Combinations.
Legend Spriggan has one weakness however. To facilitate the gimmick, two of the teeth on each set on the Japanese release are made to the thickness of those found on Basic Layers, meaning that the first two teeth on each set will wear down fairly quickly. Due to this, it is recommended to have multiple copies of this Layer and to be prepared to replace It.
Use in Attack Combinations
Legend Spriggan can be put to use in the Attack Combination Legend Spriggan 0/2/4/5/7 Bump/Meteor/Vortex Xtreme/Variable (Worn). The heavy weight of the 0/2/4/5/7 Bump/Meteor/Vortex Disc and Frame bolsters the Attack Potential of the Layer. The high speed and friction of Xtreme/Variable allow the Layer to Burst or Knock-Out opponents without Bursting the combination itself while the Legend Spriggan Layer's teeth and heavy weight compensates for the Burst risk of heavy Discs and high friction Tips.
Legend Spriggan's heavy weight and high recoil blades makes it one of the most successful Layers for Attack Types in the current metagame.
With greater success against Drain Fafnir than Sieg Xcalibur due to the Dual Spin gimmick, Legend Spriggan is a must have for competitive bladers. However, due to issues with the teeth, competitive bladers should own multiple copies of this Layer to replace ones that have worn down.
