Lightning L. Drago 100HF
Number: BB-43
System: Hybrid Wheel System
Type: Attack

Face: L Drago

The Face on this Beyblade depicts a Dragon, Draco, one of the 88 constellations in space.

Clear Wheel: L Drago

  • Weight: 3.7 grams

The L Drago Clear Wheel features three Dragon-head designs formed to create a circle. It carries a few distinct differences from most of the Hybrid Wheel System;

  • Left-spin only.
  • Unique shape is only compatible with Lightning Metal Wheel.
  • L Drago's unique function is mode change. Turning it 180° allows one to switch between two modes on the Metal Wheel; Upper to Multi-Hit Mode. The Clear Wheel allows this differentiation since it covers three of the six protrusions at all times.

Metal Wheel: Lightning

  • Weight: 30 grams

This Wheel is characterized by its prominent Smash Attack in Upper Mode. Of the total six protrusions, three are of the ‘Upper Mode’ and three are of the ‘Multi-Hit mode’. To switch between these modes, the Beyblade would need to be disassembled, and then the L Drago Clear Wheel rotated 180°.

Of the two available modes it is widely considered that ‘Upper Mode’ is superior. Contrary to the name, the strength of this wheel doesn’t come from Upper Attack, but Smash Attack. Lightning does suffer from some recoil, but this problem can easily be rectified with both MF and RF. Paired with the right Track, Lightning can provide a ferocious Smash Attack. Though a good Attack Wheel, Lightning faced problems in beating heavier Defense wheels, most notably Basalt; which was over 17 grams heavier than Lightning. It was also directly outclassed by Blitz and VariAres upon their release in terms of pure Smash Attack. Not only do they both provide better Smash Attack, but they are also significantly heavier; a common attribute among 4D System Metal Wheels when compared to previously released Wheels in the Hybrid Wheel System.

Use in Attack Customization

A current top-tier Attack combo is MF Lightning L Drago BD145LRF (Upper Mode). Metal Face and LRF help reduce the recoil Lightning experiences, and BD145 boosts Lightning's weight which aids it in creating better smashes and also defending itself when against other Attack combos.

Track: 100

  • Weight: 1.0 grams

This track is currently the third lowest track available, but is outclassed in terms of Attack and Stamina by the 85 and 90 Tracks. 100 usually has no problem with floor scrapes, and while it is generally an outclassed part, is still competitively viable, particularly in Attack customizations where it is able to make good contact with most opposing Beyblades.

Use in Stamina Customization

If 85 or 90 are not available, 100 can be put to use in the custom Earth Bull 100WD.

Use in Attack Customization

If 85 and 90 are not available, 100 can be put to good use in the combo MF Lightning L Drago 100LRF.

Use in Defense Customization

If 85 or 90 are not available, 100 can be put to use in the custom MF-H Basalt Kerbecs 100RS.

Bottom: Hole Flat

  • Weight: 0.5 grams

HF has a very similar movement speed to that of F, with the main difference being a slight Stamina improvement due to the hole in the middle of the tip. However, this comes with the detriment of even less grip to the stadium floor than F, as well as increased fragility.

Other Versions

  • Lightning L. Drago 100HF Kyokuryuu ver. - Coro Coro Limited Edition (Black Clear Wheel, Track and Bottom; Gold Metal Wheel)
  • Lightning L. Drago 100HF Hasbro Recolor ver. - Hasbro Beyblade Metal Fusion Super Vortex Battle Set ( Gold Chrome Clear wheel, Red Chrome Metal wheel, blue track and bottom)
  • Lightning L drago 100HF- Faceoff: Dragon Bite Strike (dark blue heads, "L drago" word removed from face)



Lightning L Drago 100HF is a useful Beyblade with more than one top-tier part included. While Hole Flat is only adequate, the 100 Track is an alternative to the 90 and 85 Tracks; which are more difficult to obtain. However, the real reason to own this Beyblade is Lightning L Drago; its effective Smash Attack in Upper mode makes it a worthwhile purchase for all Bladers. Every Blader should own Multiples of this Beyblade.
