Dark Knight Dragooon LW160BSF
Number: BBG-16
System: Beyblade Zero-G
Type: Attack
Element: Thunder

Note: The spelling "Dragooon" was probably chosen by TAKARA-TOMY to clearly differentiate the Bakuten Shoot Beyblade Dragoon tops and this Zero-G Beyblade.

Dark Knight Dragooon is the first left-spin Beyblade in the Zero-G series. Unlike the left spin direction beys of the MFB era, Dark Knight Dragooon does not posses mode change outside of it's Synchrome abilities and interchangable placement of the Chrome and Crystal Wheels.

Stone Face: Dragooon

  • Weight: 1.22 grams

With an original release of a blood red Stone Face, the mark on this sticker illustrates the profile view of a Dragon, drawn in a European fashion.

Chrome Wheel: Dragooon

  • Weight: 30.90 grams

With three heads, Dragooon strongly resembles most L-Drago Wheels, especially since it's a left-spin Chrome Wheel. Two heads circle almost half of its circumference in a lateral way, while one head is actually flat on top, offering relief upwards only by its lower jaw and teeth. Two webbed wings also cover the rest of the design, with claws encircling the hole where the orb from the Crystal Wheel gets inserted. The sides of the Dragooon Chrome Wheel are therefore composed of the top of one dragon head, the sides of two other heads, the curved structures of the wings' fingers, and the straight ends of the membrane between them. In general, Dragooon consequently has four sections.

Interestingly, Dragooon can be matched in Synchrom with Chrome Wheels that spin in the opposite direction. The combo it is in can only spin left if Dragooon is placed on top of the other Chrome Wheel though, unless another left-spin Chrome Wheel is positioned atop it instead.

Crystal Wheel: Dark Knight

  • Weight: 3.87 grams

Dark Knight is composed of a half-circle of sharp studs, with another half almost resembling a scythe. An interesting feature of this Crystal Wheel is the smooth slope created by this scythe in its design. In its original release, Dark Knight is clear white.

Contrary to previous trends in Metal Fight Beyblade, Dark Knight can be fit on any other Chrome Wheel, even of the right-spin kind. It must be placed in Crystal Up Mode, however, to make the customization it is a part of spin left.

Track: Left Wing 160

  • Weight: 2.36 grams

The LW160 Track is in most aspects entirely identical to W145, however the wings face the left, and its height is different.

Bottom: Blade Semi Flat

  • Weight: 1.19 grams

While its tip is a simple Semi Flat one, it is mounted on an imposing base with a linear row of blades around it. These blades are generally shaped just like LW160's wings, however they are less spaced. BSF was clearly designed for optimal use in Zero-G Stadiums, where the blades on this Bottom could come into contact with the Stadiums' slope, considering the many angles that are possible in their new swaying gimmick.
