Body Set: Phoenix Body
Head Part: Phoenix Sight
The Head Part has a distinctive phoenix motif, especially with its crest depicting a golden phoenix spreading its wings out. Unlike most other B-Damans, it has two separate stickers for the eyes. It has two sockets on the sides of its fin, to which the central part of Rising=Dracyan's Head Armor can be attached. The fin can also removed.
Arm Parts: Phoenix Arm
Phoenix's Arm Parts have sockets to accommodate the wings of Drive=Garuburn's Head Part and the lower halves of Kreis=Raydra's Emblem Parts. Either by design oversight or intentionally (as a sort of balancing thing) these arms block certain Barrel type Tune-Up Gears from attaching to the core (the Convert Barrel can attach thought).
The B-Daman's Emblem Parts, mounted on the shoulders of the Arm Parts, are a metallic light blue with a rounded triangular shape, like an arrowhead. Engraved on each one is the B-Daman's phoenix motif.
Spike=Phoenix has red Stud Parts.
Leg Part: Phoenix Leg
Phoenix's Leg Part is similar in design to the one on Thunder Dracyan, but the feet are longer and the bits resembling knee guards are also a bit differently designed. It also has sockets for the shoulder-spikes of Gatling=Deathshell to attach onto.
Core Part: Spike
Similar to Thunder Dracyan and Drive=Garuburn's Core Parts, the bluish Spike has three red-orange Hold Parts in a Delta formation and features a Drive Strip that allows the marble to spin forward when fired from the B-Daman. The Drive Strip itself is differently designed than most others, consisting of a line of rounded "spikes", hence the Core's name. These spikes help to give the B-Dama a better Drive Spin effect than with Accele, Drive or even the powerful Rising. It is worth noting that the Spike Core seen in photos of the B-Daman in Takara-Tomy's development diary had a dark metallic blue coloration, rather than the lighter solid blue of the final product.
Super Fusion: Ultimate Phoenix
In order to perform this Super Fusion, all four B-Daman that represent the Four Symbols are required. Attach the central piece of Rising=Dracyan's Head Armor to the Head Part, then Drive=Garuburn's head-wings and the bottom sections of Kreis=Raydra's Emblem Parts to the Arm Parts, and finally, Gatling=Deathshell's shoulder-spikes to the feet of the Leg Part.
- Spike=Phoenix Asia Championship Model - Exclusive to the 2013 WBMA B-Daman Asia Championship as a raffle prize. Chrome scarlet Body Set with gold decals, and black Core with red Hold Parts and yellow Drive Strip. As of October 2013, it has also become a limited edition starter in Taiwan, dubbed "Blazing Holy Light Phoenix", and given the product code of CB-XX, with no marble included.
- Spike=Phoenix Bronze/Silver/Gold Medal Ver. - Tournament prizes for the 2013 WBMA B-Daman Asia Championship. Copper, silver, or gold Body Set with Cores in the same colors with black Hold Parts and red Drive Strip, along with black Stud Parts.
The Phoenix Campaign served as the only event to obtaining Spike=Phoenix in Japan. As such, this campaign declares that the packaging bar code from any Cross Fight B-Daman purchase of CB-50 (Drive=Garuburn) and onwards is used to obtain the B-Daman. Each bar code is sent with necessary information towards Takara Tomy's gifting questionnaire division.
After one fulfills the aforementioned information, they are eligible to receive a Spike=Phoenix by three deadlines. These deadlines are February 14, May 14 and August 31, 2013. For instance, should a person send the bar code between February 14 and May 14, they obtain Spike=Phoenix by May 14. Only 1,500 figures were produced, which encourages B-Ders to take advantage of this limited-time offer. Since August 31 is the final deadline, no subsequent Spike=Phoenix copies will be distributed.
Its manga promotion, Cross Fight B-Daman: Legendary Phoenix claimed that one can enter the campaign "more than 100 times" by reading it.
Prior to the creation of Spike=Phoenix, there were three different concept designs, one of which to become the "Special B-Daman" of the Emblem Charge System toyline.
Special B-Daman (A) is a design based on the "Phoenix" B-Daman toys from Super B-Daman, boasting a cannon arm-type mechanism in its shoulders, similar in design to the EX Mega Cannon Wing. That design was chosen to become Spike=Phoenix, albeit the Cannon Arm mechanism was replaced by Emblem Parts, most likely to lower the production costs of the final product.
Special B-Daman (B) is based on the "Cobalt" series of B-Damans from Battle B-Daman, featuring a pair of four-bladed Power Wings, a green visor without the distinctive anime-eyes, a very highly pronounced version of the Cobalt Power Blade, an Accele-style Core Part with light orange Hold Parts and black drive strip, and a color scheme similar to Cobalt Sword's.
Special B-Daman (C) is designed after the "Ifrit" B-Damans from Crash B-Daman. It has a Grip handle based on the Magnum Grip, along with a Barrel-like piece on the right shoulder with ".67 Ifrit" emblazoned upon it. It has a red Core Part with three light gray or silver Hold Parts with highly pronounced tips and a black drive strip. It is difficult to tell whether this grip handle is attached to the Core or the B-Daman's left shoulder, but it is most likely the latter.
B-Daman Fireblast (anime)
In It's a Mystery! Crest Land's Legend, Himiko Godai recounted to her son, Kamon Day and his friends, Misuru Hachuka, Ken Ogami and Riki Ryugasaki, the "Legend of the Phoenix". The tale told how two figures embodied select, four, unique B-Daman. The two were the Phoenix and the Kylin, polar opposites of one-another. While the Phoenix is sealed with a "good heart", along with the sun and light, the Kylin controlled the "dark moon". The two and their wielders battled one another in a game of Break Bomber, with the Phoenix as victor. As the Kylin and its partner lost, it became evil-minded from the embittering defeat, and Crestland was formed as a result of the conflict. Now in the present, the B-Daman of the Phoenix is said to seen somewhere in Crestland itself as Himiko and Gennosuke Shigami, and their fellow archaeologists, are tracking it down.
The Spike=Phoenix was first mentioned as the elusive B-Daman by a group of shady individuals during the aftermath of the North Area B-Master's title match. Later that chapter, Subaru Shirogane also noted that the Spike=Phoenix is the origin of all the B-Daman in Crest Land.
In the next chapters; Kamon, Kakeru, Subaru and Tamao all went to the island ruins situated nearby Crest Land. Therein they found Spike=Phoenix but they were shortly intercepted by the Grand B-Master.
The Grand B-Master takes the Spike=Phoenix for himself and it is unknown what eventually became of it from there on.
Cross Fight B-Daman Legendary Phoenix
The Spike=Phoenix is the beloved partner of the main protagonist Enzi Hikigane. In this manga, the Spike=Phoenix is not a legendary B-Daman but a masterpiece created by the protagonist himself. However, the B-Daman itself carries an impressive amount of power which caught the interest of every antagonist.
- Spike=Phoenix is a homage to the "Phoenix" series of B-Daman toys featured in Super B-Daman, right down to the Drive Strip and color scheme.
- In addition, the physical design of its Body Set had also taken cues from the original Thunder Dracyan, albeit there are claws on the Arm Parts, like those on Drive Garuburn's, rather than Dracyan's fists.
- It is the fourth B-Daman by far in the Cross Fight B-Daman series able to perform Super Fusion.
- It is also the second B-Daman by far in the series to perform Super Fusion with four other B-Damans in the mix, with Smash Dragold coming before it. Although, this is more of a cosmetic enhancement, rather than a performance-based one.
- The Phoenix B-Animal is capable of healing others, as seen in ES052 where it healed Roma when it made its appearance in the stadium.
