This article is about the Takara Tomy version. For the Hasbro version, see Energy Layer - Nepstrius.

Neptune (ネプチューン, Nepuchūn) is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-28 Booster Neptune Armed Zephyr on January 23rd, 2016.

Description

Takara Tomy's Neptune is a six-bladed Energy Layer with six smooth wave like blades. The center of the Energy Layer depicts its namesake; Neptune, the sea god in Roman mythology. 

The round shape and smooth sided blades create a low recoil design which deflects attacks, giving this Energy Layer high Defense potential. Furthermore, majority of the weight of Neptune is focused around the perimeter creating high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and Flywheel Effect giving Neptune high Stamina properties. Neptune features one tall tooth, two medium sized teeth and one short tooth, which combined with its low recoil design makes it very hard to Burst.

Overall

Takara Tomy's Neptune was once a top-tier Energy Layer for Stamina/Defense Combinations. However, with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Neptune has become too light to remain competitive. 

As such, Takara Tomy's Neptune is recommended for collection purposes only.
