This article is about the Hasbro release. For the Takara Tomy release, see Light Launcher (Metal Saga).

The Ripcord Launcher is a Launcher released as part of the Metal Saga series by Hasbro. The Ripcord Launcher was included with every Starter Pack released in the Metal Saga series.



The Ripcord Launcher has a ripcord that is inserted into the launcher. The Ripcord Launcher resembles Takara Tomy's Light Launcher in design, but has indents intended to improve grip. The ripcord is also much shorter than the Light Launcher's 68 teeth "winder", as the ripcord uses the 45 teeth winder molds from the Original Series EZ Shooters (despite this, the internal mechanism is the same as the Light Launcher). The left-spin Ripcord Launcher reuses the handle from the Original Series Dragon Winders, but has the same 45 teeth.

The Ripcord Launcher originally came in four different colors, with each denoting the Beyblade's type: red (Attack), yellow (Defense), green (Stamina), and blue (Balance). These were bundled with black ripcords. The Left-Spin Ripcord Launcher included with Lightning L-Drago 100HF is colored white, with printed details similar to the BeyLauncher L included with Takara Tomy's release of Lightning L-Drago 100HF.

Ripcord Launchers included with Legend Beyblades Starter Packs came with ripcords matching the type/Ripcord Launcher color. Starter Packs released in the Beyblade: Metal Masters toyline onwards no longer follow this color system, with ripcords and launchers coming in an assortment of colors, usually matching those of the Beyblade.



  • The ripcord molds are reused from the Original Series EZShooter winders.
    • All Left-Spin ripcord launchers include a dragon winder.
