Ring - Mirage
- Main article: Ring - Mirage (Takara Tomy)
Takara Tomy's Mirage is a Left-Spin Stamina Type Ring that features a three-sided shape that depicts three dragon heads and a lot of rubber coating the perimeter. Akin to its predecessors, Mirage has a "F" on each side to represent Fafnir, specifically with the top of the "F" being at the very back of each head and the rest of the "F" being formed by the area in front of the next head. As a part of the Superking Layer System, Mirage is compatible with any Left-Spin or Dual-Spin Superking Chip or Chassis.
In theory, the moderately aggressive shape and large amounts of rubber should make Mirage excel in Spin-Equalization, but both of those traits actually make it experience a lot of recoil. While this would make it easy to knock out, it allows Mirage to work well in Mobile Attack Combinations. Something to note about Mirage is that it has a thin underside that holds itself and the Superking Chip that's attached very close to the Chassis, poorly exposing the teeth on the Chassis, granting below average Burst Resistance. However, the Burst risk can be mitigated by using a Double Chassis.
Mirage is designed to be used with the 2S Chassis, which allows it to make two separate modes. Absorb Mode is when the contact points of the Ring and Chassis align to make it easier to Spin-Equalize and Counter Mode is when the contact points on the Chassis are exposed to make it perform better against other Left-Spin Beyblades. Both modes are useful, so the mode that a player uses is mainly based on preference. The 3A Chassis can also be a great choice for it in Mobile Attack Combinations because the aggressive contact points give it more Smash Attack and Upper Attack power at the cost of putting less emphasis on the contact points on the Ring itself. The 1B Chassis can also be a decent choice on Mirage, solely due to boasting better Life-After-Death than the previously mentioned 2S and 3A Chassis, which mainly comes into play when using a Driver such as Destroy/Destroy'.

Performance Tip - Nothing
- Main article: Performance Tip - Nothing
Nothing features a low angled, spring loaded cone shaped tip. In theory the tip is meant to prevent harsh impacts against the stadium floor from launch, preventing accidental Self-Knock-Outs from bouncing.
However, the gimmick means that the tip is unfixed and is capable of tilting somewhat which creates poor Stability. This poor Stability is further made dangerous by the molding of the cone which as a slightly raised lip around the center, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Eternal Wide Defense or Wave Wide Defense which when knocked off balance the lip creates a second point of contact, creating acceleration which reduces Stamina. As such, Nothing is outclassed in terms of Stamina by Revolve and Atomic.
- Like its predecessor Drain Fafnir 8 Nothing, Geist Fafnir 8' Absorb, Geist Fafnir 8'Proof Absorb, and Wizard Fafnir Ratchet Rise Sen, Mirage Fafnir's name is based off of Fafnir, a son of the dwarf king Hreidmar, in Norse mythology. Fafnir was cursed by Andvari's ring and gold, turning him into a dragon, which is enforced by Fafnir's dragon avatar.
- The 'Mirage' portion is the optical illusion caused by atmospheric conditions through a sheet of water in a desert or on a hot road caused by a combination of the refraction of the sky's light and heated air.
- Being directly linked to Geist Fafnir, Mirage Fafnir's avatar is an upgrade of Geist Fafnir's with alterations:

- There are blue-raspberry spikes on the back of the digitigrade legs.
- The tail blade is now larger with a dark-blue base.
- The gems on the torso are now replaced with a clear orb, four silver gems and a teal gemstone on the center, signifying the Fafnir Superking Chip's core.
- The knee gems are also colored teal.
- And the head is fully gold with a more pronounced spikes on the scalp.
- This Beyblade reuses the Nothing Tip from Drain Fafnir 8 Nothing.
