L-Drago Guardian is a Fusion Wheel released by Hasbro. It debuted in western countries with the release of the B-159 L-Drago Guardian D125B Starter Pack in December 2012.

This Hasbro version opts to simplify the terminology (as the terms "Metal Frame" and "Core" do not have equivalents), calling the Metal Frame the Guardian Energy Ring and the Core the L-Drago IV Fusion Wheel.

Description

Unlike most Fusion Wheels, L-Drago Guardian also replaces the Energy Ring. It is comprised of two parts, the Metal Frame (Energy Ring) and the Core (Fusion Wheel). It is much wider, has larger gaps between each head, and is significantly heavier than the previous L-Drago Wheels, many of which were notorious for their extremely light weight. The Core contains rubber similar to that of Meteo L-Drago LW105LF, which allows for spin absorption. Unlike the original 4D System version of L-Drago Guardian, this version has a hollowed out Metal Frame. This leads to a much more light weight Fusion Wheel, making L-Drago Guardian one of the lightest Fusion Wheels in the Beyblade: Metal Fury toyline.

Metal Frame

  • Weight: 31.7 grams

L-Drago Guardian's Metal Frame resembles L-Drago Destructor's Metal Frame, as it features three dragon heads going in a circular motion. The Metal Frame can also be rotated 180 degrees like previous L-Drago Energy Rings, in order to change between two modes, "Attack Mode" and "Absorb Mode". As with the name, the armor-like design is more flat and has sharper edges. This Hasbro release has hollowed out the Metal Frame, reducing its weight by over 8 grams.

Core

  • Weight: 5.1 grams

The Core is identical to the one found with L-Drago Destructor. The Core has six protrusions going around in a circular manner. Being highly made of rubber, it is used to absorb hits and obtain more Stamina, as well as providing extra weight. Hasbro refers to this Core as the "L-Drago IV" Fusion Wheel, despite being identical to the "L-Drago III" Fusion Wheel found with L-Drago Destructor.

  • The product images display L-Drago Guardian with holographic stickers on the Metal Frame; only a small number of the final product included these stickers.
