Dark Gasher CH120FS 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 as a Starter Pack by Hasbro in western countries in May 2010.
Face Bolt - Gasher
- Main article: Face Bolt - Gasher
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 - Gasher
- Main article: Energy Ring - Gasher
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.
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.
Performance Tip - Flat Spike
- Main article: Performance Tip - Flat Spike
Flat Spike (FS) or Flat Sharp, features a flat tip with a smaller, sharper spike tip in the center. As a result, when launched at a straight angle, the Beyblade spins on this spike tip, with very little movement. However, when the Beyblade is tilted, either from contact with an opposing Beyblade or from the launch, the Performance Tip moves in an offensive pattern. However, it suffers from the same problems as other Balance Type Performance Tips, in that the two qualities are compromised, resulting in mediocre performance in both fields.
- As with other Light Wheel releases, Mad Gasher was renamed to Dark Gasher in the anime.
- Two variants of the Hasbro Starter Pack release exist: initial releases had black packaging, while later releases had blue packaging matching other Metal Fusion Starter Packs.
