The Face on this Beyblade depicts Draco, it is the Latin word for "dragon" and one of the 88 constellations in space. The design features a ferocious Dragon looking towards the left, a reference to L-Drago's spin direction. Underneath the Dragon, you can see the words L-Drago.
Energy Ring: L-Drago
The L-Drago Energy Ring is shaped like 3 dragon heads, being based off of the constellation Draco. It is the second heaviest Energy ring but its only compatible with the Lightning fusion wheel. It has come in the original clear-white color, Coro-Coro's limited edition black colour, and Hasbro's special edition gold version. Unlike its future form L Drago II, it is the only one with no rubber; concluding that it can't absorb enemy attacks as well, but the left rotation can spinsteal a bit.
L-Drago's unique function is mode change. Turning it 180° allows one to switch between two modes on the Fusion Wheel; Upper Mode and Barrage Mode. The Energy Ring allows this differentiation since it covers three of the six protrusions at all times.
Fusion Wheel: Lightning
The Lightning Wheel has 2 modes (Upper Attack Mode and Barrage Mode) to it, which can be alternated by rotating the Energy Ring 180 degrees. 1 mode has 3 joined little ridged blades, for a rapid Barrage attack. It is very useful against Beyblades that are knocked off balance easily. The other mode has 3 large slopes forming a triangle, and produce an impeccable amount of Smash Attack. In the anime, Ryuga uses this mode for his Dark Move, because this mode is the better out of the two.
Spin Track: 100
100 is currently the third lowest Track available. Its scrapes the floor less than 85 and 90, but is still overcome easily by tracks like 230 and TH170. It was first released with Lightning L-Drago 100HF. This track is currently outclassed.
Performance Tip: Hole Flat (HF)
HF has a very similar movement and speed to that of F, with the main difference being a slight Stamina improvement due to the hole in the middle of the tip. But with this comes the detriment of even less grip to the stadium floor than F, and also increased fragility. This part, therefore, is a negligible tip. Also, MF is much better for stamina and has slightly better attack. HF also has the ability to maintain the banking shoot pattern. A decent tip to say at least though, but outclassed.
Many people compare Lightning L-Drago 100HF to Storm Pegasus 105RF. Storm Pegasus' RF tip has more grip, and has more defense. Stamina: The Hole-Flat of Lightning L-Drago provides more stamina than the Rubber Flat of Storm Pegasus. And on Attack, while their stats are quite equal; as stated by Madoka Amano, Lightning L-Drago has the ability to repeatingly attack its opponent after collision because of the way that it spins, unlike Storm Pegasus who must chase its foes to repeatedly attack; this gives Lightning L-Drago 100HF the overall advantage in attack. For Lightning L-Drago, It uses its collision impact from its amazing attack power to make up for its weak balance and defense. In a real match between Lightning L-Drago 100HF against Storm Pegasus 105RF, Storm Pegasus wins as it has more grip. However, Lightning L-Drago wins mostly as it has lots of Smash attack in its Fusion Wheel.
While many say that L-Drago was the first bey ever created, there were a lot of Beyblades in King Hades Kingdom and that was before L-Drago.
In the original series Tyson has a Dragon Bey which is not an evil Bey, but in the Metal Saga L-Drago is an evil Bey.
If you place the Energy Ring from the Hasbro Super Vortex Battle Set Version onto the Takara Tomy Black Version Fusion Wheel, you will have a fully gold L-Drago.
Lightning L-Drago is the second Bey created to have a mode Change, involving the energy ring and fusion wheel. Storm Aquario's HF/S was the first.
It was L-Drago who inspired the creation of Omega Dragonis and Ray Striker.
In the anime, Lightning L-Drago used dark power to absorb strength from other Beys, because it didn't have rubber, but Meteo L-Drago, L-Drago's second evolved form, has rubber so in the anime it uses its own power to absorb strength.
The Corocoro Limited Ver. appeared in the manga, unlike the other versions of L-Drago, which didn't appear in the manga or in the anime.
The individual release of the Hasbro version originally came with a blank face bolt, with a sticker to apply to it. The Battle Set version came with a printed face bolt.
Lightning L-Drago is the only bey that has more than one beast because his beast changed in the battle bladers final battle to light purple dragon from dark purple dragon. We´re not counting dark forms of beys made by Diablo Nemesis so Nemesis has only one beast.
