Ratings - Brain Muffin
This weapon will only be rated for Regular 1P/2P use, since it doesn't have any niche or league use. Also since most muffins are similar they'll all have similar reviews.

Price (3/3): Most muffins are dirt cheap, and from that they do that's good enough.
Power (1/5): Yeah... no. The era of 15 icon weapons ended when 13 icons became the regular for multiuse weapons. buying these over and over makes no sense when you can get something like Yooyu Knuckle Duster for 80k. It does get 1 point because muffins are so cheap you can use them until you get enough neopoints to buy 2 dusters.
Uniqueness (0/2): There's just too many 15 icon, 3 icon type bombs to count by now.

Overall its only use is for a user that's new to the battledome that needs a disposable, good damaging weapon until they can buy something better. Because of that its final rating is 4/10.

Brain Muffin is one of many different muffins being awarded in the Central Arena in the new Battledome. Like many of these muffins, Brain Muffin deals 15 icons. (Nice!) As result of becoming a prize, Brain Muffin's price has plummeted; Brain Muffins can be found on the Shop Wizard for less than 100NP. (Nice again!) At entry level battling, 15 icon muffin bombs like Brain Muffin are a deadly force. The damage output is significantly above Multiple Use weapons at this level like Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer and Scroll of Knowledge, and despite being One Use, these muffins are so cheap at the moment that the cost of replacing them is a mild nuisance at the worst. The average price of 15-icon bombs is so low now that they are no longer just for important battles like Defenders of Neopia; muffins can now be used by Budget Battlers on a fairly routine basis, especially when obtained as prizes.

Compared to other 15-icon muffins, Brain Muffin's icon distribution is not as appealing as that of Robot Muffin or Darigan Muffin. Some of the most common shields at this level like Leaf Shield and Patched Magic Hat greatly soften the blow of Brain Muffin. Also, Light dual duties like Jhudoras Cursed Sword are also common at this level, making Light icons a less optimal choice when similarly-priced muffin options exist.

Brain Muffin is better saved for 1-Player battles, but is a bargain nonetheless.

Price/Power (4/5)
15 Icons single use for such a low price is a good number, and generally any of these 15 icon muffins represent pretty good value as a bomb in 1P.

Countermeasures (2/5)
The question is however, how easily blocked are these bombs by common shields, and how much can they get though. Well in the case of this muffin, a good deal of it can be taken off by either dual Scarab Rings or a Leaf Shield. Besides this, it can get a good sum of icons though other popular shields in 2P.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
Try checking the other 15 icon battle muffins to see if any of them scratch your muffin itch. That, or try out one of the Swift Darkfire Negg Bomb items instead.

Other Points (None)
It does look rather cool.

Final Thoughts
Single player these things are solid, multiplayer? Maybe you should think of a better idea.
