Trident (トライデント, Toraidento) is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-15 Random Booster Vol. 1 Trident Heavy Claw on September 19th, 2015.
As the name implies, Takara Tomy's Trident is based on the iconic three-pronged spear belonging to the Roman god Neptune. Trident is an Energy Layer that overall has a triangular shape, with a trident-shaped protrusion transcending two of these sides. At the corners of this triangle, there are two arrow heads pointing toward each other.
As Trident is a wide Layer, its weight is spread too far out, which causes imbalance and quickly deteriorates Stamina in battle. Furthermore, due to the placement and flat design of the protrusions, Trident lacks both the power to Destabilize the opponent and the design to defend itself, limiting its competitive use.
Trident also has small, shallow teeth, similar to Ragnaruk's, which makes this Layer susceptible to Bursting.
While Takara Tomy's Trident's wider design makes it unique, it suffers from having a bad weight distribution, sub-par design and weak teeth.
As such, Takara Tomy's Trident is recommended for collection purposes only.
