Smash Dragold (Japanese: スマッシュ=ドラゴルド, Sumasshu=Doragorudo, Smash=Dragold) is a Special-Type Core Change System B-Daman. It is one of the Legendary Dragons, as well as the most powerful of the five, and was wielded by Rudy Sumeragi in the B-Daman Crossfire anime and manga, and by Ryuichi Hoshino in Cross Fight B-Daman: Legendary Phoenix.
Body Set: Dragold
Head Part: Dragold Head
Smash Dragold's Head Part is designed like the head of an Oriental-style dragon, with a red visor with golden anime eyes in the dragon's mouth. It also has blue eye designs, along with two sets of four horns, two of which made to resemble the dragon's whiskers, and a red jewel in the forehead. It also has a slot, in which one can insert the horn of Strike Dragren for increased accuracy.
Arm Parts: Dragold Arm
The B-Daman's Arm Parts are similar to Double Drazeros', but with a red jewel studded at the ends, along with a pair of blocky-looking, ornate shoulder guards. The Arm Parts also have spaces that can accommodate Double Drazeros' Wing Parts.
This B-Daman has solid black Stud Parts.
Wing Parts: Dragold Wings
The Dragold Wings can be removed and put in different positions for mode changes. If the wings are placed in a downward position, like a stabilizer on the back of the Core Part, it changes Dragold into Power Mode, that allows it to fire marbles powerfully. If they are attached to the business end of the Core Part like a Focus Barrel, it changes the B-Daman to Sniper Mode, to improve accuracy. If the wings are attached at the back of Dragold's Head Part, they would act like a magazine extension for the B-Daman's Rush Mode.
Leg Part: Dragold Leg
Dragold's Leg Part resembles the feet of a Western-style dragon, and have spaces on its underside, to which one can attach Lightning Dravise's Leg Part rollers.
Core Part: Smash
The Smash Core Part has a short, clear-colored five-sided barrel like a pentagon with blue designs, referencing the number of the five Legendary Dragons. It boasts a press-down Smash Trigger mechanism that gives the Core Part its name. It has three black Hold Parts, one of which being removable to accommodate Thunder Dracyan's rubber Drive Strip, to add power to this Core Part.
Super Fusion: Ultimate Dragold
This formation could only be achieved if one is to have all five B-Daman of the Legendary Dragons. The front horn of Strike Dragren attaches to the Head Part, Lightning Dravise's foot rollers fit into the spaces on the Leg Part, Double Drazeros' Wing Parts to the Arm Parts, and finally, Thunder Dracyan's Drive Strip to the Smash Core.
- Dragold Body Gilded Ver. - Limited edition. Metallic gold Body Set including the Drazeros Wing Parts.
The Smash Core, when equipped with the Accele Core's Drive Strip, makes it good for Power-Type customizations, and putting Dragold's wings into Power Mode adds to it. The Leg Part, when equipped with the rollers of Lightning Dravise, is good for customizations of all three basic B-Daman types. However, what should be acknowledged is how the Core's Smash Trigger attachment, when used improperly, may pop out of place when firing (especially in Power Mode), so it is best to have a finger hold down the top of the Smash Trigger when firing. There is a chance one's fingertip may slip when they try to press the Smash Trigger.
B-Daman Crossfire (anime)
Smash Dragold was reawakened within the Ruins of North Sumadora by Novu Moru, as part of a scheme to take control of Crossfire and then the world using the powers of the Golden Dragon and the B-Crystal. However, Dragold needed a host for its powers, so it took possession of Rudy Sumeragi and made him his host and wielder. That gave Novu the perfect figurehead for when he takes over the world, to rule it from behind the scenes. As time went on, Dragold began adapting certain parts and the Super-Shots of the other Legendary Dragons, such as Double Drazeros' wings, Lightning Dravise's rollers, Thunder Dracyan's Drive Strip, and Strike Dragren's horn. In one of the near-final episodes of the season, Dragold and Rudy decided that they should be the ones to take over the world using the B-Crystal's power. When Novu used the Dragold Drones to take over WBMA headquarters and held everyone hostage, even Takakura, they turned on the schemer, challenging him to a game of Break Bomber. Derek Watari came, intending on backing Novu up, when the Golden Dragon and its wielder were about to use their Super-Shot. At this, Novu insisted for Derek to make a run for it, knowing that the Super-Shot may kill them both.
Cross Fight B-Daman (manga)
In ancient times, Smash Dragold attempted to gain more power by unleashing catastrophy upon mankind, and was sealed away after losing against the Four Dragons, Dracyan, Dravise, Dragren, and Drazeros in a Cross Fight competition.
Smash Dragold makes its debut in The Catastrophic B-Daman, Dragold Attacks!!, where he, along with a mind-controlled Ryuji arrives at a Break Bomber tournament, announcing their intent to compete, and challenging the users of the other four dragons. It was also revealed that Ryuji found Dragold in a temple three days prior, as the B-Daman then manipulated him into breaking his seal.
- Dragold's name is a portmanteau of "dragon" and "gold".
- The Smash Trigger concept originated in Super B-Daman's PI-EX System, with the P-71 Smash Trigger EX Part.
- By far, the only other B-Daman in the B-Daman Crossfire series to perform Super Fusion with four other B-Daman is Spike=Phoenix from B-Daman Fireblast.
- There was speculation of Dragold having a successor model in the Emblem Charge System. But, it was canceled along with Dyna=Tripress and the Ultimate Leg.
- In spite of its pride and arrogance of its power in the anime, Dragold isn't completely evil.
- The Smash Trigger carries over to Gunlock=Wolg.
- He is voiced by Hiroki Touchi in Japanese, and by Keith Silverstein (credited as David Keefir) in English.
- Among the B-Damans in the manga adaptation, he is the only one of the Legendary Dragons seen actively speaking. Also, unlike in the anime, Naoya has nothing to do with Dragold's possession of Ryuji.
- Out of all the special moves Dragold used, it never copied Dragren's move which would have been called "Gold Dragon Stinger" in the anime.
