- This article is about the Hasbro version. For the Takara Tomy version, see Energy Layer - Unicorn.
In-depth information for Hasbro’s Unicrest Energy Layer will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
While Hasbro's Unicrest is identical in shape to Takara Tomy's Unicorn, it has been slightly altered, causing it to perform differently than its Takara Tomy counterpart. The most notable change is one that affects all of Hasbro’s Burst System releases: the use of a slope on the underside of the Layer to manage the Burst Mechanic rather than teeth. Unicrest's relatively steep slope means that it experiences a significant increase in Burst Defense compared to Unicorn, which made it a once top-tier Layer for Defense Combinations, however, due to the lighter materials used by Hasbro and the additional plastic added to the center of the Energy Layer, its Stamina has been lowered to create only average spin times. Furthermore, with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, specifically Fafnir F3 and Legend Spryzen S3, Unicrest has become too light to remain competitive.
As such, Hasbro's Unicrest is recommended for collection purposes only.
