- This article is about Sword'. For its normal counterpart, see Performance Tip - Sword.
Sword' (ソードダッシュ, Sōdo Dasshu) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dynamite Battle Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-200 Starter, Xiphoid Xcalibur Xanthus Sword'-1, on July 16th, 2022.
Sword' features a wide, metal, six-pointed star tip, akin to a combination of Iron, Assault and Jaggy. Due to the shape and surface area, Sword' will create a highly aggressive movement pattern with speeds comparable to Assault. However, the rough perimeter, low friction of the metal and wide diameter of the tip makes it difficult for Sword' to maintain a banking pattern and creates relatively poor Stamina despite the metal construction, making Sword' ill-suited for Tornado Stalling Combinations as well.
Furthermore, Sword' features two sword-like protrusions on either side. Due to the height of the Burst System, no Combination can come into contact with the protrusions and they instead create a severe scrape risk, nullifying Life-After-Death potential. When paired with the Xcalibur line of Layers, the protrusions are meant to line up with the Layer's sword point to increase Attack potential. However, the protrusions are too small have any noticeable effect.
Finally, Sword' is taller than most other Performance Tips which further reduces Attack potential as most Attack Type benefit from being at lower heights. Like other Dash Drivers, Sword' features a stronger spring lock, increasing the Performance Tip's Burst Resistance.
