Odax O2, known as Obelisk Odin (オベリスクオーディン, Oberisuku Ōdin) in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted as the prize Layer of Random Layer Collection Vol. 2 in March 2016 and was later released in the B-46 Booster Obelisk Odin Triple Xtreme on June 18th, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Wyvron W2 & Odax O2 Dual Pack.
Odax O2 is a thick and angular Attack Type Energy Layer that features two sword-like protrusions with two smaller protrusions running behind them around the perimeter, and two sideways faces with one of them having a red eye in the center, meant to represent the Layer's Japanese namesake; Odin, father of Thor in Norse Mythology.
The design of Odax O2 gives it a much more aggressive appearance than its predecessor Odax, greatly resembling the Top-Tier Attack Ring from the HMS, Samurai Upper. Despite the resemblance, Odax O2 has a rather poor performance on all fronts. In terms of Attack, it struggles to even defeat Deathscyther-based Stamina Combinations by Burst or KO. Its shape is not only ill-suited for Stamina Combinations, but it also gives it poor performance in Defense Combinations as well.
Use in Attack Combinations
If superior Layers such as Valkyrie, Victory Valkyrie, Xcalibur, or Minoboros are unavailable, Obelisk Odin can be used in the KO Attack Combination Obelisk Odin Heavy Xtreme, which draws out what little Attack power Obelisk Odin has. A KO Combination is preferred, as Obelisk Odin performs miserably when stationary.
Despite its aggressive appearance, Obelisk Odin's mediocre performance made it become outclassed at the time of its release. Furthermore, with the release of Cho-Z Layers such as Winning Valkyrie and Buster Xcalibur, Obelisk Odin is far too light to be competitive.
As such, Obelisk Odin is recommended for collection purposes only.
Differences in the Hasbro Version
Hasbro's Odax O2 is virtually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Obelisk Odin, with the same issues of performance in Stamina and Defense Combinations. Furthermore, with the release of SwitchStrike Energy Layers such as Xcalius X3 and Luinor L3, Odax O2 is also too light to be competitive.
As such, Odax O2 is also recommended for collection purposes only.
