The "Tiger Fang" (Japanese: 白虎牙撃(タイガーファング)) is the signature Special Move of Ray Kon using his Driger F and Driger Fang.0.Xt. This move has been featured in the original anime series and manga series, as well as other various media including the manga's sequel series.

Description

The "Tiger Fang" has been presented in a variety of different interpretations throughout the Beyblade (franchise), with each featured appearance offering a different iteration of the attack.

Regarding its appearances in the original manga and its sequel "Bakuten Shoot Beyblade: Rising", the "Tiger Fang" is depicted in dynamic action, clearly presenting the move in action. Based on art panels, the Beyblade is seen crashing into the enemy Bey at high-speeds. Though little technical explanation is given, in its limited appearances in the manga, its user, Ray Kon, has implemented this move in innovative ways, including as a ricochet attack.

Conversely, the anime version of the attack makes little distinction from other special moves within the series, which usually involves simply summoning a Beyblade's Bit-Beast from their Bit Chip. When featured in scenes, the "Tiger Fang" never involved the Beyblade (Driger F) making any distinctive or elaborate actions focusing almost exclusively on the Bit-Beast Driger.

In the Nintendo Game Boy Advance video game series "Bakuten Shoot Beyblade 2002 - Fierce Battle! Team Battle!!", the "Tiger Fang" is classified as a Medium Finish (Japanese: 中必殺) and can be acquired by the player once the Bit-Beast Driger reaches Lv.30.
