Energy Layer - Killer Deathscyther

Quote:[Hasbro Name], known as Killer Deathscyther in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System. It debuted with the release of theB-85 Booster Killer Deathscyther 2Vortex Hunter on June 24th, 2017.

Killer Deathscyer is an Attack Type Energy Layer that features a hooded skull facing forwards, unlike previous iterations where the skull was seen from a side profile, holding a large scythe, meant to represent the Layer's namesake, the personification of Death otherwise known as the Grim Reaper. The Layer is made up of five/six(?) blades. Like its predecessor Doomscizor D2, one/two(?) of the blades are made of colored plastic that are sloped to allow for small amounts of Upper Attack and Destabilization, the other four blades are made of clear plastic and are not sloped, meant for Burst Attack. As part of the Evolution/God Layer System, Killer Deathscyther features a gimmick; the colored blade(s)? features a translucent blade that freely slides to create a "Double Strike".

In theory the translucent blade is meant to slide back due to Centripetal Force, then once the Beyblade slows down due to contact with the opponent, the translucent blade slides forward, due to moving at the Layer's original speed, and strikes the opponent a second time. In practice however, the translucent blade has too little mass to affect the opponent in any noticeable way and the Beyblade is most likely to rebound away from the opponent before the translucent blade has time to shift forward in time. Furthermore, to accommodate the gimmick, the colored blade(s)? is too thick and too shallow of an angle for its intended Upper Attack and Destabilization to be successful. Finally, the translucent blade fails to even clear the colored blade so it cannot make contact with the opponent at all.

Compared to its predecessors, Killer Deathscyther has a much more aggressive and recoil heavy design in order to give it greater attack potential making it ill suited for the Defense and Stamina combinations Doomscizor and Doomscizor D2 were infamous for. However, the blades are still compact which limits the damage the Layer can do, making Killer Deathscyther ill suited for Attack combinations as well. Furthermore, Killer Deathscyther is incredibly unbalanced which diminishes its Stamina even further, while this can create some degree of Destabilization potential to make up for the shallow angle of the colored blade(s)?, other Layers such as Alter Chronos can do the same while holding greater Stamina.

Killer Deathscyther features a design too compact for Attack and too recoil heavy and unbalanced for Defense and Stamina and its Evolution/God Ability is intrusive to the design and fails to function. As such Killer Deathscyther is outclassed by many other Layers such as Sieg Xcalibur and Legend Spriggan for Attack, Alter Chronos for Defense, Guardian Kerbeus for Stamina and even its predecessor Doomscizor D2 for both Defense and Stamina. As such, Killer Deathsycther is recommended for collection purposes only.
