Dashing Tankshell is a Rapid Fire-Type B-Daman.It is wielded by Jenta Kokuji in the B-Daman Fireblast anime.

Body Set: Tankshell Body

Head Part: Tankshell Head

This Head Part is quite bulbous while harboring two, thin spikes jutting upward at its sides. It has a clear violet color scheme.

Emblem Parts: Tankshell Emblem

Dashing Tankshell has a singular Emblem Part consisting of a hexagon surrounded by six other hexagons, giving the effect of the patterns on a tortoise's shell. It can be taken apart and mounted on either Arm Part.

Stud Parts

These Stud Parts are cylindrical and of an opaque black coloration. The prototype had opalescent white Stud Parts.

Arm Parts: Tankshell Arm

Tankshell's Arm Parts mold into a bending format while using a spike on each shoulder; protruding outwards similar to the Head Part. They are of a clear violet coloration. The shoulder-spikes can be removed and placed on the feet of Spike Phoenix's Leg Part.

Leg Part: Tankshell Leg

The feet of the Leg Part seem slightly long and linear. Clear violet is used for its colour scheme. They are hollow, as a means of weight reduction. There are also small peg inserts in the heel of the Leg Part that allow the Dash Stabilizer to be attached as a Version-Up Part.

Core Part: Dashing

The Dashing Core features a two-handled crank known as the Gatling Unit, which can be turned backwards to fire a stream of B-Dama, and has a removable grip that can be put on either socket. It uses the same body shell as Sonic, and it is clear purple with black parts. Unlike the Sonic Core, it has no rollers on its Hold Parts, but its cylindrical tips do resemble rollers. The prototype of Dashing Tankshell had this Core Part in a metallic gray coloration, with the Trigger and Gatling Unit colored a opalescent white instead of black.

Fragility Issue

Because the Core Part is made of a clear resin plastic, it's potentially fragile. If you take the Head Part off directly, you may end up leaving behind a crack or two. If you wish to use this Core with other Head Parts, remove part of the Core and extract the current Head Part from there, before sliding in a new Head Part and replacing the removed piece of the Core.


  • This is the second B-Daman using "Gatling" as the first part of its name, following Gatling Hades from Battle B-Daman: Fire Spirits!.

Body Random Booster Vol. 3, but was postponed to June 22, 2013 for reasons unknown.

    • This causes a confusing jump between the product codes because while Dashing Tankshell retains CB-78, the Random Starter 2013 Vol. 2 (also set for June 22) is CB-81.
  • Dashing Tankshell was never released with a Version-Up Set like Drive Garuburn, Kreis Raydra, and Rising Dracyan.
    • This is because of it's Version-Up Part, Dash Stabilizer is also a Tune-up Gear.
  • The only other B-Daman to have single emblems are Mach=Scorpio, Right Drake and Left Stallion.
  • In general, single-emblem B-Daman are Rapid Fire types as this feature usually accompanies some type of one-handed grip, which was primarily designed for Control and Rapid Fire types. However, Right Drake has only one emblem but is a Power type.
