Description of Vanish Fafnir

Released on May 29th, 2021 as part of the Dynamite Battle system, Vanish Fafnir Tapered Kick-3 is a left-spin stamina Beyblade, featuring a Blade entirely made of rubber. This material creates high friction, making the Vanish Blade ideal for spin-stealing combinations.

Furthermore, this Blade excels at absorbing shocks, thanks to the holes located at each contact point. Out of the box, Vanish Fafnir is one of the strongest stock combinations of the Dynamite Battle and Burst Ultimate systems.

As per usual with spin-stealing combinations, this Beyblade shines against right-spin opponents. In opposite-spin battles, no strength is required : even with a weak launch, the Vanish Blade will make the whole combination speed up as soon as it makes contact with its opponent.

However, against another left-spin Beyblade, the spin-steal is canceled and players will have to launch with power.

With its high spin-stealing potential, stamina and shock absorption, Vanish Fafnir Tapered Kick-3 is a great stock combination for newcomers to the hobby. On the other hand, beginners may find this combination frustrating to play against (check our guide for some tips).

How to improve Vanish Fafnir

Friendly Use

In a friendly, non-competitive environment, Vanish Fafnir Tapered Kick-3 is a solid combination. If players want to improve it without altering its Layer too much, then the Driver can be replaced. Kick is outclassed by many Drivers, so replacing it with Bearing’, High Xtend+’ or Bearing Drift will be beneficial.

For a more subtle upgrade, then players can pick a different Armor. Replacing the “3” Armor with “2“, “4“, “6“, or “0” will increase stamina potential. Furthermore, players will be able to use “3” with attack type Blades featuring 3 contact points such as Savior.

Finally, Tapered is a very good Forge Disc, but it can be replaced with Discs such as Over, Illegal or Giga.

Competitive Use

For use in a competitive environment, replacing the Kick Driver with Drift or Bearing Drift is the priority. If these Drivers are not available, then Bearing’ or High Xtend+’ can be used instead.

Players who have a large collection of Beyblades (and components) may keep the Vanish Blade only, and upgrade all the other components.

As mentioned above, Tapered is a very good Forge Disc, but it can be replaced with Discs such as Over, Illegal or Giga to increase stamina potential. If available, Nexus + S Gear is a very good option in this combo.

The “3” armor has to be replaced with”10” or “0“, to improve weight distribution as well as stamina potential. If these options are not available, “2” and “6” are good alternatives.

When it comes to the DB Core, Fafnir can be replaced with Bahamut, because of Bahamut’s incredible burst resistance. Another option is the Longinus DB core, because of its heavier weight and increased stamina potential.

Therefore, an example of competitive combo could be : Vanish Longinus Nexus+S Drift-0.

Final thoughts on Vanish Fafnir

The Vanish Blade alone is a top tier, highly competitive component. The only other way to get Vanish being a Random Booster (B-194-04 Random Booster Vol. 27), Vanish Fafnir has great value.

Furthermore, this Beyblade comes with the F Gear, a competitive evolution gear. Vanish Fafnir Tapered Kick-3 is, without a doubt, a must-have in any Beyblade Burst collection.
