Not to be confused with the Legend Bladers
Legend Beyblades are a special type of Beyblade released exclusively by Hasbro. They are basically the "starter" versions of Metal Fusion Beyblades that were released only in Japan. However, this is Hasbro's version that contain five parts while the starter Beyblades contained four. They also differ from regular models in that all of the plastic pieces are 'pearlescent'; featuring opaque, semi-metallic, shiny plastic.
Each set includes the Face Bolt, Energy Ring, Spin Track, Performance Tip, Ripcord Launcher, Ripcord and Assembling Tool. The Face Bolts tend to have the signature printed on it, rather than stickers.
The original Hasbro packaging included one of four different coloured Launchers/Ripcords, which corresponded to its type. Red for Attack, Yellow for Defense, Green for Stamina, and Blue for Balance. Metal Masters releases instead have Launchers and Ripcords that came in respective colors to the Beyblade itself. Cyber Pegasus 105F has a pearlescent, light blue Launcher, while Night Virgo would have a pearlescent yellow Launcher.
The list of Beyblades in this series includes:
- Cyber Pegasus 105F
- Midnight Bull 125SF
- Torch Aries 125D
- Night Virgo DF145BS
- Fury Capricorn 100HF
- Hyper Aquario 105F
- Counter Leone 145D
- Inferno Sagittario 145S
- Thunder Libra DF145BS
- Wolf D125B, Quetzalcoatl 90WF, L- Drago 105F, Pisces D125BS, Gemios DF145FS, and Escolpio WD145B were Starter Beyblades that did not get Legend Versions because there was already an existing metal wheel of the PreHWS metal wheel exept for the Quetzalcoatl PreHWS metal wheel (Wolf became Dark, L-Drago became Lightning, Pisces became Thermal, Gemios became Killer/Evil and Escolpio became Grand.
- Five Legend Beyblades were re-released for Beyblades Metal Masters in a booster with new packaging without a Ripcord Launcher. They were Cyber Pegasus 105F, Midnight Bull 125SF, Fury Capricorn 100HF, Counter Leone 145D and Inferno Sagittario 145S.
- Legend Midnight Bull 125SF is the only Balance Type Legend Beyblade and is the only way of getting a specially colored blue launcher and ripcord.
- The reason that Wolf, Quetzalcoatl, Gasher ( a.k.a.Cancer), L-Drago, Pisces, Gemios and Scorpio didn't get a legend version is because Dark Wolf DF145FS, Lightning L-Drago 100HF, Thermal Pisces T125ES, Evil Gemios DF15FS and Rock Scorpio T125JB, their successors, already look very similar to the original versions.
