- This article is about the Hasbro release. For the Takara Tomy release, see Light Launcher (Metal Saga).
The Light 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 shorter than the Light Launcher, as it uses the winder molds from the Original Series. The Left-Spin Ripcord Launcher is slightly longer compared to the Right-Spin one.
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. These dragon winders are longer than the reused EZShooter molds.
