Obelisk Odin Upper Jaggy (オベリスクオーディン・アッパー・ジャギー, Oberisuku Ōdin Appā Jagī) is an Attack Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in Japan on October 22nd, 2016 for 972円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 4 Quad Quetzalcoatl.J.P.
Energy Layer - Obelisk OdinEdit
Main article: Energy Layer - Obelisk Odin
Takara Tomy's Obelisk Odin, unlike its predecessor Odin, is an Attack Type Energy Layer that’s thick and angular in shape. Its design consists of a colored blade molded into the shape of a sword on either side, matching the weapon the Layer’s spirit wields; a large sword, two blades on either side that are made of both clear and colored plastic that run behind the sword-like blades, and two orb-like designs on either side that are also made of clear plastic and have a small protrusion on them. Surrounding the center of the Layer are two sideways armored heads on either side, with one of their eyes colored red, representing the Layer’s namesake; Odin, father of Thor in Norse mythology.
Unlike Odin, Obelisk Odin’s more aggressive design greatly resembles the Samurai Upper Attack Ring from the Hard Metal System (HMS), which at its time, was a top-tier Attack Ring. While the resemblance may imply high Attack potential, in practice, Obelisk Odin’s overall shape ends up reducing some beneficial recoil. While this may imply that it is ill-suited for Attack Combinations, the aforementioned protrusions on the Layer’s orb-like designs imply high Burst Attack, as the protrusions can catch onto the protrusions of the opponent’s Layer and thus create enough recoil to Burst them. For Smash Attack, the blunt designs of the Layer’s sword-like blades can create enough recoil to potentially Knock-Out the opponent. However, while the Layer’s design does make it great for Attack Combinations, it is ill-suited for Defense and Stamina Combinations, as the recoil created by the Layer’s aggressive shape increases the risk of Bursting.
Obelisk Odin features three teeth of tall length, allowing it to withstand its own recoil. Furthermore, when paired up with rubber-based Drivers such as Xtreme or Jolt, the Layer's tall teeth can compensate for the Performance Tip's resistance to the Layer’s spin.
Forge Disc - UpperEdit
Main article: Forge Disc - Upper
Upper features two sloped metal wings that, in theory, provide Upper Force in Right-Spin and Down Force in Left-Spin. However, in practice, the low angle and short width of the wings makes any Upper or Down Force effect negligible. Furthermore, Upper is light in weight, lower than the more popular choices for Stamina; 4 and 7, making its Knock-Out Resistance sub-par compared to the aforementioned Discs.
Performance Tip - JaggyEdit
Main article: Performance Tip - Jaggy
Jaggy features a flat, eight-pointed star tip with a depression in the center. Due to this Performance Tip's shape and surface area, Jaggy will create a moderately aggressive movement pattern with speeds exceeding Accel's. However, the rough perimeter of Jaggy will make it difficult to maintain a Banking Pattern while also heavily reducing Stamina in the process.
