Wyvern (ワイバーン, Waibān) is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-14 Starter Wyvern Armed Massive on September 19th, 2015.

Description

Takara Tomy's Wyvern is a circular, seven-bladed Energy Layer. The center of the Energy Layer features the head of a dragon to represent this Layer's namesake; a two legged, winged dragon, the Wyvern.

While the spiked design may imply that this Energy Layer has a lot of recoil, the direction of the blades means that they would parry the oncoming hits which reduces recoil. When the opponent's Layer comes into contact with Wyvern, there are two likely outcomes. The opposing Energy Layer hits the outside of Wyvern’s blade, resulting in minimal impact, or the opposing layer hits the empty space between Wyvern’s spikes, causing the opposing Energy Layer to be pushed away. This gives this Energy Layer high Defense potential. Most of the weight of this Energy Layer is focused around the perimeter which combined with its circular shape gives it excellent Stamina properties as well.

Wyvern features four teeth of short length, while this may imply poor Burst Resistance, the circular shape of Wyvern produces such little recoil that it can be withstood by its teeth, creating a Layer with high Burst Resistance. However, like other pre-Xcalibur Layers, the teeth of Wyvern wear out fairly quickly and thus multiple copies must be purchased in order to replace ones that have worn down.

Overall

Takara Tomy's Wyvern was once one of the best Energy Layers for Stamina/Defense Combinations, but with the release of SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Wyvern has become too light to remain competitive.

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