Naked (ネイキッド, Neikiddo) is a Layer Base released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-156 Random Booster Vol. 18 on December 26th, 2019.
Naked is a 5-bladed Layer base, resembling a reversed Alter Chronos. As part of the Gatinko Layer System, it is meant to be used with any layer Weight and Dual/left spinning Gatinko Chip.

In theory, the 5 thick blades on Naked are supposed to repel attacks. The blades' design means that the gimmick works as intended. Furthermore, Naked exposes a decent amount of a Gatinko Chip's teeth, increasing Burst Resistance.

That said, Naked is laughably light, weighing in at barely 9.4 grams, compared other Defense layers of its time. This makes it fare poorly in most area, with its knockout resistance being rather poor for a defense type, with the use of Goku/Diabolos I almost being mandatory to reduce the knockout risk.

The low weight of Naked is likely due to it being meant to be used with the Paradox disc to create a set up akin to Hades and Boost Disk 145 during the Metal Saga, but even then the pairing is too light to remain viable.
==Use in Spin Equalistion Combinations==
While alternatives exist, Naked can be used in the niche spin equalisation combination Naked Longinus/Spriggan/Diabolos 2 Paradox (Upwards) Xtend+/Bearing/Bearing' Sen/Goku. Sen and Goku provide OWD for the Naked combination to outspin other combinations while the strong teeth of the Gatinko Chips listed helps increase burst resistance even further. However, it is easily knocked out due to its tips low traction, but is otherwise a good combination.
While Naked does have good defense, its light weight makes it outclassed for Defense by Vanish and even Roar.

As such, it is meant for colletcion purposes only.
Naked still has a niche use in this format due to the more equal weight, but it is not preferred over other defense combination alternatives such as Perfect Phoenix.

As such, it is not a must have but is welcome addition to any bladers collection.
