Energy Layer - Blast Jinnius

Quote:[Hasbro Name], known as Blast Jinnius in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System. It debuted with the release of the B-89 Booster Blast Jinnius 5Gliave Guard on

Blast Jinnius is a Defense Type Energy Layer that features six clockwise blades, akin to a reversed Nepstrius. As part of the Evolution/God Layer System, Blast Jinnius features a gimmick; the six blades can rise up.

Upon impact with the opponent, the blades will rise up as one piece and expose a smoother surface, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's 230/160 tracks. In theory this is meant to reduce points of recoil to improve Burst and Knock-Out resistance. In practice however, due to the thickness of most other Layers and how little Blast Jinnius' Layer moves, the blades will come into contact with the opponent's Layer regardless. Furthermore, Blast Jinnius' blades are likely to be struck from up upwards angle, destabilizing any combination using this Layer which increases Knock-Out and Burst risk. This is further exacerbated by the clockwise direction of the blades which creates recoil instead of deflecting impact, while this may imply attack potential, the movement of the blades nullifies any such potential.

Due to the direction of the blades and detrimental gimmick, Blast Jinnius is outclassed for Defense by Alter Chronos and even Kries Satan. As such, this part is recommended for collection purposes only.

This thing sucks

Edit: Videos show that the blades only rise upon impact

How bad are the teeth? I'm guessing this thing's teeth are as bad as the rest of it...

They're average, medium length teeth. Not bad, but the gimmick is so bad it might as well not have them
