Wizard Fafnir Ratchet Rise Sen (ウィザードファブニル・ラチェット・ライズ・閃, Uizādo Fabunīru Rachetto Raizu Sen) is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It was released as a Starter in Japan on April 27th, 2019 for 1728円. It was created in inspiration of Free De La Hoya's Geist Fafnir 8'Proof Absorb.

In-depth information for Takara Tomy's Fafnir Gatinko Chip will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
The Gatinko Chip depicts the two dragons in the form of Fafnir, son of the dwarf king Hreidmar. The design is similar to the Longinus's Gatinko Chip. It also show the two Fafnirs show both of their hands to make it look like they're gripping the center of the Layer Weight. The two dragons is also more detailed than the other dragon on the Layer Base.

Wizard Fafnir, like its predecessor, is a Stamina Type Layer Base that features a triangular perimeter and three side profile dragon heads with an "F" along each, meant to represent this Layer's namesake; Fafnir the Nordic Dragon of Greed.
Wizard Fafnir also features gimmicks: The first is that this Layer is meant to spin Left, opposite to most other Beyblades. The second is that the "F"s are made of rubber, akin to both its predecessor and the L-Drago II Clear Wheel from Metal Fight Beyblade. The inclusion of rubber aids in this Layer's ability to equalize spin with a Right-Spin opponent.
While the triangular shape and rough perimeter of Wizard Fafnir may imply recoil, the Left-Spin nature of this Layer reduces recoil against a Right-Spin opponent. When spinning slower than a Right-Spin opponent, the rubber "F"s of Wizard Fafnir allows for Spin-Equalization, where the Layers of two opposite spinning Beyblades work akin to gears and equally distribute their spin, by acting as a cushion against impact, increasing friction between Layers, acting as a "hook" for the other Beyblade to catch into and propel Wizard Fafnir faster and reducing recoil to increase the rate of contact. Due to the greater exposed surface area of the rubber, the effect is more prominent than in Drain Fafnir, though the greater weight makes the effect far less pronounced against lightweight opponents.
When against a Left-Spin opponent, Wizard Fafnir cannot equalize spin and the rubber will instead act as brakes. If the opponent has less Burst Resistance than Wizard Fafnir, then the friction can potentially Burst the opponent. However, if the opponent has greater Burst Resistance than Wizard Fafnir, the friction of the rubber can cause a Wizard Fafnir Combination to self-Burst or severely lose Stamina.
At low spin speeds, the rubber blades will extend outwards, creating a perimeter akin to a reversed Winning Valkyrie, meant to improve Spin-Equalization potential at low spin speeds by exposing more rubber.
Forge Disc - Ratchet

In-depth information for Takara Tomy's Ratchet Forge Disc will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
Ratchet like other odd numbered Core Discs, is asymmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. One side features two protrusions and the other features three, all molded in the shape of "R"s and the center features two small holes on either side. While the asymmetrical design may imply imbalance, the smaller size of two of the protrusions on the three lobed side ensures that the Disc is balanced. Ratchet's overall shape resembles a combination of Forge Disc - 5 and Glaive and acts almost identically with the same with the same high Stamina potential, Knock-Out Resistance and Life-After-Death.
Performance Tip - Rise
Main article: Performance Tip - Rise
In-depth information for the Rise Performance Tip will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
Rise, like its predecessor features a ball shaped tip surrounded by a downward facing dish that freely moves vertically, akin to Zero-G Beyblade's E230 Track. In theory the dish is meant to make contact with the stadium floor when the Beyblade is struck, forcing it back upright, acting as brakes to prevent a Knock-Out while the vertical movement of the dish is meant to prevent Stamina loss. In practice however, the vertical movement prevents the dish from Stabilizing a Combination on the shallow curvature of the stadium and because the dish does not spin freely, it causes the Beyblade to accelerate instead of stopping which worsens Destabilization further.
Unlike other ball based Performance Tips, Ratchet's tip does not features any tabs as their purpose had been integrated into the dish. However, the relatively smooth rim of the dish and its vertical movement nullifies most of its Knock-Out Resistance with greater Stamina loss and the small diameter of the tip does little to stop the Beyblade. While the smooth ball would imply greater Stamina than Defense, the aforementioned dish nullifies any Stamina benefit.
- Like its predecessor Drain Fafnir 8 Nothing, Geist Fafnir 8' Absorb and Geist Fafnir 8'Proof Absorb, Wizard 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 "wizard" portion of its name is based from wizard, a man in legends and fairy tales, who's skilled in the arts of magic.
- This is the first Fafnir Beyblade not to be owned by Free De La Hoya.
- Like Free, Fumiya rarely uses a Bey Launcher to use Wizard Fafnir, but instead of spinning it from his hand like Free, Fumiya places the Beyblade on the Beystadium's center, letting it absorb spin from the opponent's Beyblade's attacks.
- Wizard Fafnir's avatar is an upgrade version of Geist Fafnirs's with several alterations:
- Its eyes are reduced to two.
- Its paws become smaller.
- The claws turned black.
- Its spine from the head to the tip of the tail turned blue.
- The wings become whole.
- The scales of the wings are turquoise.
- There are no metal parts on it.
- There are three red claws on the legs.
- it has a bundle of energy on his chest.
- And the claws on the wings are now red.
