Ronin Dragoon SA165WSF is a Sky Element Attack Type Beyblade released by Hasbro as part of the Synchrome System. It was released in western countries in the Beyblade: Shogun Steel Griffin Dragoon Air Synchrome 2-Pack for USD$15.99 in the United States.

Shogun Face Bolt - Dragoon

The Shogun Face Bolt depicts a European dragon, facing towards the left. The design of Dragoon is somewhat unusual, as the dragon's head is depicted with a short snout, similar to a dinosaur.

As with all Shogun Face Bolts, the Hasbro release of Dragoon is cross-shaped rather than the round diamond shape of its Takara Tomy Stone Face counterpart.

Warrior Wheel - Dragoon

Main article: Warrior Wheel - Dragoon

Dragoon is the only Left Spin Warrior Wheel, and can only spin left when used as the top Warrior Wheel in Synchrome. The Dragoon Warrior Wheel features three dragon heads, resembling the design motif of L-Drago, its predecessor. Two heads circle half of its circumference laterally, while one head is flat on top, offering slopes upwards by its lower jaw and teeth. Two webbed wings cover the rest of the design, with claws encircling the hole where the orb from the Element Wheel is inserted.

Dragoon is a top tier Synchrome System part, finding use in Attack/Balance/Defense/Stamina Type combinations. When used in a Synchrome combination as the top Warrior Wheel, Dragoon can deliver strong attacks, although the protrusions are small compared to other Warrior Wheels, and thus outclassed in sheer Attack power by other Warrior Wheels. However, Dragoon's Left-Spin capability gives it an advantage over other more powerful Right-Spin Warrior Wheels because it is not affected by "Zero-G Attacks", which attempt to sway the stadium in the opposite (Left-Spin) direction.

Its slopes can be used to attack opposing Beys and knock them away when used with low Spin Tracks, but this has not proven to be a reliable characteristic. Because of its heavy weight, it can handle recoil well when in Synchrome combinations with rounder, smoother or heavier Warrior Wheels, giving it use in Defense Type customs. Although its poor balance makes Dragoon seemingly a poor choice in Stamina Type combinations, the Left-Spin allows for Spin Steal, which can be used in Zombie Stamina-Type combos.

Element Wheel - Ronin

Main article: Element Wheel - Ronin

Ronin is a two-sided Element Wheel, with sharp studs on one half and an aggressively curved blade on the other. A slight, smooth slope is created by this blade in Ronin's design. Ronin can be fit on any Warrior Wheel, including Right-Spin ones. If Ronin is placed in Crystal Up Mode, the customization becomes Left-Spin.

When paired with Dragoon and other Warrior Wheels, Ronin can provide some Smash Attack, but like all other Element Wheels it is rendered useless because of its light weight compared to Synchrome combinations.

Spin Track - Switch Attack 165

Main article: Spin Track - Switch Attack 165
  • Weight: 6.18 grams

Reminiscent of Armor 145, SA165 also has a wide, parabolic shape around its core which is completely hollow except for the rigid sides forming the parabola. This latter piece can be removed, flipped, and inserted back on the core of the Track to build another mode which is more likely to touch the stadium floor, especially in Zero-G Stadiums. The parabolic part is not perfectly smooth however, as it has linear ridges going towards the core, and its outermost circumference is full of small spikes, much like GCF. Its diameter is considerable though.

  • Normal Mode

When the parabola is ascending, with its diameter increasing toward the top, SA165 is in Normal Mode. Its wide perimeter is closest to the Metal Wheel or Chrome Wheel and offers a reinforcement to it.

  • Zero-G Attack Mode

If the parabolic piece is flipped so that it forms a skirt that hangs over the Bottom rather than embraces the Chrome Wheel or Metal Wheel above, this Track is in Zero-G Attack Mode since it reproduces the wide diameter of efficient Zero-G Attack Bottoms such as GCF and CF.

Performance Tip - Wide Semi-Flat

Main article: Performance Tip - Wide Semi-Flat

Wide Semi-Flat (WSF) is simply a Semi Flat Bottom with a slightly wider flat section, and with a wider base. In other terms, it forms a bigger cut cone than SF was. Two sets of spiky shapes are also on either side of the main tip part, possibly to create a relation with Archer Gargole, the Beyblade this Bottom was introduced with.
