Capricorne (カプリコーネ, Kapurikōne) is a Wheel released by Takara Tomy as part of the Metal System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-27 Booster Capricorne 100HF on February 22nd, 2009.

Description

The Capricorne Wheel's design has two main elements related to a goat: at two opposite ends, there are some hooves with two toes each, and on the right of those start one set of two long, curved horns each. To avoid breaking issues, flat metal connects both horns at their end, but also with the side of the hoof. These precautions and the design create an overall very circular shape with some very simple slopes.

In theory, the roundness of this Wheel could make it a good Stamina or Defense type, and the slopes could provide potential Upper Attack, however Capricorne simply lacks all the weight necessary for those properties and its design has no acute points. Also, as is often the case with Wheels, the slopes are not really in the proper direction since Capricorne is only right-spin, and the hooves were oddly placed right at the base of the only good slopes in that spin direction, so they act like boulders. This average, too smooth transition in the relief of this Wheel has rendered it useless since its release, especially with the arrival of the much anticipated Hybrid Wheel System right the following month in Japan.

Overall

As such, Capricorne is recommended for collection purposes only.
