Dark Cancer CH120SF (ダークキャンサーCH120SF, Dāku Kyansā CH120SF) is a Balance Type Beyblade that appears in the Beyblade: Metal Fusion anime. It is owned by Tetsuya Watarigani and is the upgrade of Mad Cancer CH120FS. It was released by Takara Tomy as a Booster on November 21, 2009.

Face Bolt - Cancer

Main article: Face Bolt - Cancer

The Face Bolt depicts "Cancer", the fourth astrological sign in the Zodiac. Cancer is one of the 88 constellations in space, and is depicted as a crab. The word "cancer" is displayed above the crab motif.

Cancer was renamed to "Gasher" by Hasbro for its releases. Accordingly, the word "cancer" was removed from the design, and the crab motif enlarged. Several spheres were also added to the background.

Energy Ring - Cancer

Main article: Energy Ring - Cancer

Gasher (or Cancer) is a round Energy Ring with a design representing crab claws. The slopes of the Energy Ring, and its heavy weight, give Gasher use in Defense Type combinations. The Takara Tomy version has the word "Cancer" written on the slopes - the Hasbro release of Gasher removes this.

Fusion Wheel - Dark

Main article: Fusion Wheel - Dark

Dark has twelve spikes facing the clockwise direction. These protrusions are closely packed together with minimal space between each, resulting in an overall round shape. This shape hinders the Fusion Wheel in two ways: its protrusions are not pronounced enough to provide sufficient Smash Attack, while the perimeter is interrupted too frequently for sufficient Stamina. Additionally, its weight is distributed over too large a surface area. There is thus no reason to use Dark in any competitive situation whatsoever.

Spin Track - Change Height 120

Main article: Spin Track - Change Height 120

Change Height 120 (CH120), as the name suggests, is a Spin Track with a height change gimmick. The height can be switched between 120 (12.0mm) and 145 (14.5mm) by pulling/pushing the central part out/in, and then rotating the bottom portion back to lock the height. Importantly, this can be done between each round of a match, as it does not involve any part-swapping.

The most obvious advantage is allowing the Blader to change the height of their Beyblade between rounds; this means that the Blader can adapt their strategy to counter their opponents during a match. In addition, Change Height 120 is the only Spin Track with the 120 height, which is useful in Attack Type combinations.

However, some copies of CH120 will actually fall apart or break if hit on 145 mode with too hard of an impact. Despite this, unlike TH170, this is usually fixable by simply locking the parts back into place.

Performance Tip - Semi-Flat

Main article: Performance Tip - Semi-Flat

Semi-Flat (SF) is a sharp tip with a flattened end. As a result, Semi-Flat displays a combination of Attack and Stamina qualities, moving in a semi-aggressive pattern. Because of this however, the two attributes are compromised, resulting in an average performance in both categories.

Semi-Flat produces a movement pattern that, while aggressive, is much slower than any flat Performance Tip. The increased friction with the stadium floor due to the wider tip both increases its Defense and Stamina in comparison to a bottom similar to Spike (S) or Eternal Spike (ES). However, it is in absolutely no competition with Performance Tips such as Wide Defense (WD) for Stamina or Rubber Spike (RS) for Defense.

Semi-Flat found a niche use in Destabilizer combinations, where a low Spin Track combined with Semi-Flat's balanced qualities allowed the Beyblade to destabilize the opposing Beyblade.
