Beyblade: Metal Masters
Dashan Wang was born and raised in the Beylin Temple, having trained for most his life from childhood he has become China's best beyblader. He now leads the Beylin Temple and China's Team in the World Championships: Big Bang Bladers. His team is set to face Japan's in the first round, during his training he is met by Mei-Mei and Chi-yun who introduce him to the team.
Dashan decides to take this chance to learn as much about Gingka Hagane; the famous champion of Battle Bladers and the leader of Japan's Representative Team. He allows he and his partner Masamune to undergo several training exercises, Dashan only using this to test Gingka's skills and brown nose him.
Dashan's efforts are successful as his complements to Gingka allow for Dashan to successfully challenge him to a match. During most of the battle he just takes intel on Gingka's attack abilities, but after long he pressures Gingka into using his special move; Starbooster Attack. Before Dashan is able to see its destructive power, Masamune see's through his plan and launches his bey to stop the match.
Having been discovered, Dashan recalls his bey and bids Japan's team GanGan Galaxy good luck in China. During GanGan Galaxy's exploration of China, Masamune discovers Wang Hu Zhong's third member; Chao Xin. Masamune challenges him but he refuses, to Dashan's disliking to where he forces Chao Xin to battle Masamune.During their match Dashan puts the pressure on Chao Xin, who is able to win. But even in victory Dashan feels that Chao Xin got lucky and it was not good enough.
Soon after, the first round began and Chao Xin was decided to be in the first match with Masamune, who had been training nonstop. Dashan is surprised to see that his skills have improved, providing a challenge to Chao Xin during their match. In the end Dashan views Chao Xin's defeat but is happy to see that Chao Xin has finally learned from it and now his team does not have to fret victory.
Instead Dashan encourages Chi-yun to do well against Tsubasa, who he is eager to battle anyway. Chi-yun promises not to lose and goes into battle. Dashan is somewhat disappointed at how Chi-yun takes the battle, using several taunts to enrage Tsubasa and eventually causes Tsubasa to bring out a strange dark power that self destructs himself, handing Wang Hu Zhong to win.
Responsibility of Beylin Temple
With one win and one loss, Dashan heads into battle to face Gingka but before, he for warns Gingka about how his drive to win is far superior to Gingka's and how he has much more riding on his shoulders. Gingka is somewhat discouraged by Dashan's words but still goes into battle.
During the opening clashes of the match, Dashan gains an early lead using his Rock Zurafa's amazing rubber wings to take in all of Gingka's attacks. Gingka decides to try something different, using his special move and finally allowing Dashan to view his attack. Impressed for the most part, Dashan is still easily able to counter with his own special move and believes firmly that Rock Zurafa cannot lose to Pegasus' power.
Confident that he can overpower Gingka, Dashan decides to go on the attack and puts Gingka and his Pegasus under extreme pressure. The crowd starts to make Gingka question himself when the chant Wang Hu Zhong, while Dashan takes in the moment. Gingka figures in an attack battle that he can win and begins to turn the match around until Dashan decides to use his most famous move, confident that Pegasus will never break The Solid Iron Wall.
Planning to simply outlast Gingka, Dashan's Zurafa is completley protected, having the advantage in stamina and the strength to repel Pegasus with the Solid Iron Wall. In desperation, Gingka continues to attack with no chance of breaking Dashan's defensive stance.
Even as Gingka continues to try, Dashan simply explains how the Solid Iron Wall cannot be broken by Gingka's strength as like he said before, his drive is not nearly enough to face 4000 Years of tradition. Getting cocky, Dashan decides to try and end the battle with an attack but Gingka finds his own drive, all the bladers he left in Japan are behind him and helping him to counterattack.
Gingka begins to counter attack, able to push back Zurafa's special move and break through it's defence. Dashan challenges Gingka's drive to take on his own and battles back to protect Beylin Temple's honor. Dashan is able to send Gingka's Pegasus flying but Gingka decides to make on final effort with his Starbooster Attack. Refusing to lose, Dashan prepares to counter with own special move; Crushing Blast. But Gingka's drive is able to overcome Dashan's overbearing confidence in his temple and breaks through Dashan and his Zurafa, winning the match for GanGan Galaxy.
Dashan feels that he is dealt a crushing defeat, having failed his temple and his Team by losing. But he is the only one to feel this way and is soon reassured by Chao Xin to build a new legacy and weigh it all on him and his friends. This allows Dashan to cheer up and congratulate Team Gan Gan Galaxy, igniting he and Gingka's friendship. After the match, the team begins new training and even Chao Xin participates by joining Beylin Temple. Dashan decides to see Team GanGan Galaxy off at the airport in order to encourage Gingka and his team not to lose.
Supporting a New Legacy
In the third round of Big Bang Bladers, several teams are eligible to compete for a Wild Card Spot in the consolation tournament. This Wild Card spot will allow the team to re-enter Big Bang Bladers.
Dashan and his team jump at the chance and join the consolation Tournament. They win several matches and during a broadcast, Dashan openly challenges Gingka, telling him that his team will be victorious.
After hearing about the Festival of Warriors in Europe, Team Wang Hu Zhong travel to Spain to meet with GanGan Galaxy who were defeated by the European Team, Excalibur in an unofficial team matchup.
Surprised by the arrival of their old foes turned new friends, GanGan Galaxy are vigorously trained by Dashan in the art of teamwork. At the end of their training, once again Dashan and his team challenge them to a battle.They decide on two tag team matchups where Mei-Mei and Chi-yun face Tsubasa and Yu while Dashan and Chao Xin face Gingka and Masamune. Dashan and Chao Xin show the fruits of their labor, able to easily outclass Gingka and Masamune in teamwork. But thanks to Dashan's training, Team Wang Hu Zhong is able to come through in the end and end the matches in a tie.
After successfully helping their friends, Wang Hu Zhong continues to battle for the Wild Card Spot. They sucessfully do so after overcoming teams such as Arab's Team Desert Blaze and Russia's Team Lovushka. Wang Hu Zhong is entered in the A-Block Semi-Finals against Team Excalibur. Dashan leads his team into battle, deciding that it is best for Chao Xin and Mei-Mei to battle against the infamous Tag Team Masters; Sophie and Wales. Unfortunately for them even that match up is no match for Konzern's Twin Jewels.
After losing the first match, Chi-yun swears to defeat Excalibur's Muscle; Klaus. The two battle and Chi-yun is surprised by his strength but does not worry. But soon enough Klaus is able to overpower and defeat Chi-yun's Lacerta. Disappointed in himself, Chi-yun is depressed over his loss but Dashan is not phased because he knows his team tried their hardest, but is dissappointed that he himself did not get a chance to battle.
Dashan along with the rest of his team support GanGan Galaxies matches, raising enough money to attend all except their semi final in Brazil. Dashan and his team are extremely supportive during their match against Excalibur where Gingka and his teammates are able to win, just as they promised to Wang Hu Zhong.
During GanGan Galaxy's appearance in America before their battle with Team Star Breaker, Team Wang Hu Zhong along with several other of Gingka's friends have a friendly battle royale to decide who will fill Tsubasa and Yu's place due to their injuries sustained from battling a powerful beyblader known as Damian Hart. Dashan takes upperhand against Kenta until all of them unleash their special moves where the battle is interrupted by Gingka's father; Ryo dressed as Phoenix. Hikaru then tells all of them that no one can participate since they were already in the tournament.
For Beybladers EverywhereGanGan Galaxy faces against Team Star Breaker of America in the finals of Big Bang Bladers. Dashan and Wang Hu Zhong support them from the stands, taking notice when an individual known as Ryuga takes the place of Tsubasa in the second round.
In the third and final match between the teams Gingka is supported by all the true bladers of the world to defeat "The Chosen One"; Damian Hart and does just that. With victory in hand, GanGan Galaxy celebrates victory but at first they are alone until Wang Hu Zhong show up to help congratulate them. They celebrate by having fun splashing each other with soda pop until they are interrupted by the American Team and company.But they don't come to celebrate, instead the announce a new weapon known as the Spiral Force which would be powered by the potential of Beyblade unlocked by the Hades inc. arrangement System. Refusing to allow Ziggurat to use beys a research tool to power a weapon Dashan, Gingka and all their friends prepare to take Hades down.
Dashan teams up with Masamune to battle Argo Garcia and Julian Konzern who have decided to join Ziggurat's cause. Dashan supports Masamune in battling against Argo but are both pushed back into a trap with Julian's special move waiting. Before they are hit, both Dashan and Masamune are saved by Nile of the African team which causes Julian and Argo to retreat.Seeking help, Gingka leads everyone to his father who refuses to allow them to pursue the spiral force. But with Hikaru's help they are able to continue their pursuit after making a gameplan to storm Hades City, the home base of Hades Incorporated. They arrive only to be assaulted by Hades forces led by the Garcias, who unleash a flurry of attacks that separates everyone from each other. Team Wang Hu Zhong must now work together to face Enzo Garcia and his many HD Beybladers, but it is not long before they find that Hades City is moving!
Kyoya Tategami clears a path for everyone to head for Hades City which prepares to take off into the air as a floating fortress for the Spiral Force. But Wang Hu Zhong is soon surrounded by an Army of Beybladers while heading for the City.
Dashan prepares to battle his way out with his team, but instead they haul him onto the floating city, leaving them behind so he may continue. Already on board, Gingka remains trying to board while Argo holds him off. Dashan is amazed to see that Tsubasa and Yu return with Madoka to save him as they all board Hades City together.
Passing on the Spirit
Leaving his team behind, Dashan continues to move forward with his new allies to fight for Beybladers everywhere against the tyranny known as Hades. Dashan and the others battle their way against HD Beybladers throughout the city, heading towards the Hades Tower which is was the primary plan. They arrive only to be intercepted by who Dashan refers to as Hades pet monkey; Julian Konzern.Sophie and Wales insist on holding Julian back while the rest enter the tower, but Dashan already knows that they will fall in battle and decides to remain behind. Dashan was unable to battle Julian in their teams matchup and is eager to battle him. Dashan watches as Julian betrays his former allies and crushes them in battle, disappointed with Julian's actions Dashan reveals himself to Julian in order to stop him from intercepting the remaining allies who must take down the Spiral Force.
Dashan oppenly confronts Julian about being a dishonorable beyblader while Julian plans to dethrone Dashan of his title as the Pride of Beylin Temple so he will have nothing left like Julian.
Without anymore words their battle begins, where Dashan is surprised to see that Julian's destroyer can clash through Zurafa's defense with ease. But Dashan counters after having a taste of Julian's strength by utilizing his Zurafa's rubber wings and counterattacking with an attack of his own.They both obviously have a mutual respect for each other's talents, Dashan does not underestimate Julian as he knows the battle is not over yet. Interested to see that Julian's bey spirit has not left him completely he reignites the battle by matching Julian's strength in a battle of defense types, Sophie and Wales note that this is fueled by Dashan's intense spirit.
But even after been given a challenge, Dashan realizes that Julian is still not the man he wished to battle. With this Julian decides to turn the match around by activating the eyes of Medusa which turn Zurafa to stone.
Dashan is not discouraged as he knows has to use his sense to feel the flow of everything in the world, and uses this to escape Julian's trap with Zurafa's flowing dash. Dashan begins to take the battle back into his own hands as Julian fears defeat. Refusing to give in, Julian makes his move by activating his special move; Gravity Brave. This is expected to defeat Dashan but by using the secret 4000 old technique, Solid Iron Wall Dashan is able to defend and discourage Julian further.
|“||Even if you lose you get back up and keep moving forward! That is the bey spirit, my friends taught me that a strong spirit is whats kept Beylin Temple going for 4,000 Years!||”|
—Dashan Wang, The Fallen Emperor
Julian comments about how Dashan was much like Julian used to be, but Dashan takes this as an insult and assaults Julian, seemingly finishing him off. Dashan tells Julian that Beyblade is about the passion and is not a tool to gain control of the world as Julian once thought.
Dashan believes that beyblade is the world and he has worked too hard to let people like Julian and Ziggurat ruin it, dissapointed in Julian Dashan prepares to end it. Julian nearly allows him to until Sophie and Wales are able to convince Julian that Dashan is right, true power comes from getting back up and fighting with Honor.
Julian follows Dashan's advice, picks himself up and prepares to make a new Excalibur as Dashan and his friends have made a new legacy for Beylin. Happy to see that Julian is back on his feet, he begins to battle the man he is now the man he's always wanted to battle. Julian plans to defeat Dashan as his first accomplishment with his new Excalibur, but Dashan refuses to lose the battle he's waited so long for. Dashan charges his spirit to the max and releases his final attack against Julian's.
When it's all said and done, Dashan is victorious. Dashan succesffuly passed what he learned from his loss to Gingka onto Julian who is able to pick himself up after defeat. Happy to see Julian's recovery, Dashan decides to remain behind with Excalibur, leaving Gingka and his allies to take down the Spiral Force. His hopes come to light as Gingka and his friends defeat Faust and destroy the Spiral Force, saving the BeyWorld.
Beyblade: Metal Fury
Seeking the Legends
Some time after returning to the Beylin Temple from America, Dashan and his team are contacted by Gingka Hagane. Gingka believes that Dashan is possibly one of the Legendary Bladers chosen by the Star Fragment. Dashan finds that he is not what Gingka believes him to be due to the fact that his Rock Zurafa did not evolve, where as Legendary Bladers Beyblades do evolve.
Dashan and his team hear rumors of Beylin expellees being attacked by a mysterious figure. Believing that this figure could be a Legend Blader, Dashan contacts Gingka and invites him to China. Once arrived, Gingka is informed by Dashan that a Tag Battle Tournament will take place soon and the Legendary Blader in China will surely be attending it.
After agreeing to join the tournament, Gingka and Dashan are confronted by a mysterious figure by the name of Johannes. Johannes believes that the Legend Blader is a sleeper among Beylin's finest. And because Johannes had such disrespect for the temple itself, Dashan accepts his challenge over Gingka.
Dashan proves to be more then a match for Johannes until Johannes shows off his Bey's special abilities. Although Dashan struggles, he is able to gain the edge of Johannes. After nearly delivering a final blow, Dashan is shocked to find that Johannes retreats. Johannes had seen the peak of Dashan's power and although he is skilled, it was clear that he was not a legendary blader. Dashan takes offense from the remark but Johannes runs away, Dashan is encouraged by Gingka and teammates that he still may well be a Legendary Blader.
After days pass, the ToRyumon (Tag Team) Tournament begins. Dashan and Chi-yun easily dominate their first round opponents by using their special moves in unison. This allows them to move on to round two and spectate the remaining first round matches. Dashan unfortunatley is unable to spot a "Crimson Flash" which is the sign of the next legendary blader. Instead he takes interest in Chao Xin and Mei-Mei's match against Gingka and Yuki.
He's surprised that altough Yuki is a Legendary Blader, he is quite unskilled in battle. Chi-yun makes several comments, but Dashan decides to watch closley. Towards the end of their match, Yuki begins to work with Gingka and they are able to pull out a win over Chao Xin and Mei Mei.
In the second round, Dashan and Chi-yun easily defeat the Shisen-Butow team and move on to the next round. Gingka and Yuki also move along easily but Kyoya and Benkei are faced with Johannes and his partner Motti. Dashan watches as Kyoya eventually defeats Johannes by unlocking his true legend blader power. In the final match of the second round, the mysterious Bao-Aguma team uses a Crimson Flash to win, revealing that one of the two is the Legendary Blader that the group has been searching for. But Dashan also recognizes that the two are decendents of the Beylin Fist; an exiled group from the Beylin Temple.
Bao and Aguma are the names of the two decendents, Bao proclaims that the Beylin Fist will win and showcase their superiority to the Beylin Temple, Dashan challenges his claim and promises to stop them. Dashan and Chi-yun are then paired in the Semi-Finals against Gingka and Yuki. Dashan is glad that he is able to battle Gingka once more after his defeat in the World Championships.
The battle begins and along with Chi-yun, Dashan dominates his opponents from the start. Gingka and Yuki are unable to keep up with the tag team work of Dashan and Chi-yun, as they use combination attacks through the roles of attacking and defending. Eventually Gingka and Yuki are left wide open when the two both use the roles of defence, and then the two would attack with a joint special move with offensive roles, nearly defeating their opponents.
Gingka and Yuki finnaly come together with a divide and conquer tactic to seperate Dashan and Chi-yun. Dashan gracefully takes on Gingka but is surprised by his Pegasus' new found powers. Dashan is able to battle back against Gingka's endless barrage of different mode changes for his Pegasus, making it difficult for the Beylin Temple blader to keep up with the variables. Despite Pegasus' power, Dashan is able to match it blow for blow and even gain the upper hand by traping Pegasus physically within the stadium.
Feeling that he and Chi-yun must deal with the Beylin Fist, Dashan prepares to finish Gingka and Yuki and move on to defeating the exiles. He joins Chi-yun in attacking Anubius who's able to hold them both long enough for Gingka to unlock Pegasus' full potential, freeing from Dashan's trap. Gingka attacks with his Legendary power in the form of a new special move which Dashan and Chi-yun are unable to counter, leaving them ultimatley defeated by the duo of Legendary Bladers.
Dashan is honored to have been able to aid Gingka in unlocking Pegasus' power, but is dissappointed in his defeat. He then entrusts the defeat of the Beylin Fists to the Legendary Bladers, hoping either Gingka's team or Kyoya's team will be able to defeat them. Dashan and others are shocked to find out during Kyoya's match against the Beylin Fist, that Aguma is actually the Legendary Blader of the two. Aguma revealed himself by defeating Kyoya and Benkei in nearly one move.
It's Spin Track allows it to absorb the attacks of even the most powerful attack type beyblades, forcing them back and draining their stamina with every attack. The spin track is even able to repel special moves when Zurafa is at full strength, shown when it was able to repel the Starbooster Attack with ease. Zurafa has attack power far beyond the normal attack type fueled by Dashan's intense spirit, even great then that of Julian's Destroyer.
- Crushing Blast: Zurafa's most powerful special move, an attack that uses the spirit of the Beyblader and the Bey to create flames that circle Zurafa. It eliminates all needs for defence into one attack that overpowers the opponent and crushes them; as the name states.
- Storm Surge: While aided by the rubber wings, Zurafa repels the attack of an incoming beyblade by counter attacking forcefully. It absorbs the attack power of the enemy using the rubber wings and drains their stamina, easily repeling the opponent and causing them damage. This is Dashan's primary special move.
- Strong Arm Flash: Zurafa gathers its momentum and thrusts into the opponent at full force.
- Strong Arm Barrage: Zurafa gathers its momentum and releases the kinetic energy in a barrage of attacks.
- Solid Iron Wall: Beylin Temple's 4000 Year Old Special Move; an absolute defence field that is aided by Zurafa's rubber wings to repel any opponents attacks no matter how powerful or how weak the attack.
- Heavens Supreme Destruction Bomb: A Joint Special move used by Zurafa and Lacerta. The two combine their power to create a giant ball of fire that raises into the sky and then crashes atop its opponents.
