Spoiler alert!

This section of the article may contains details concerning the progression of the plot. If you do not want it to be spoiled for you, skip this section!

Dash! Yonkuro and Hyper Dash! Yonkuro Edit

In Dash! Yonkuro, it replaces the Falcon Jr. as Punkuro's primary machine throughout the original series. Like the rest of the Dash machines, it is equipped with the chassis made of amorphous carbon-graphite composite material and gears made of polytetrafluoroethylene. 

The Cannonball has higher acceleration performance compared to the others. Along with the Shooting Star, the Cannonball is one of the fastest cars out of the five initial Dash machines.

The car also has a special device known as the Condenser Circuit (Japanese: コンデンサー回路, Kondensā Kairo) which, when activated, sends large amounts of electricity to the motor, causing an immediate, massive increase in acceleration performance. However, it was also a major weakness: since the Condenser Circuit sends massive amounts of electricity to the motor, the motor will break or explode after use, completely breaking the car in the process. Punkuro would only use it when he is prepared for such an event.

Punkuro later gave the Condenser Circuit to Tankuro for his Neo Burning Sun during the final race of the National Mini 4WD Championship.

In Hyper Dash! Yonkuro, the Cannonball was used in the team race. Punkuro had challenge Comp Crow and his Night Seek Rod in the third stage (the 'Clock tower') with his old Cannonball instead of his Cannon Dead Ball. Unfortunately, the Cannonball was destroyed as Punkuro didn't expect that there's a incoming large pendulum while driving through a shortcut, thus slicing the car in half and fell into the ocean. However, this event gives Shinkuro a idea to modify his Shooting Star's bodyshell and equipped it onto his Shooting Proud Star.

Due to Hyper Dash! Yonkuro ignores the events of Shin Dash! Yonkuro, it has two successors: The Dash-04 Cannonball Wail and the Cannon Dead Ball.

  • The Dash-4 Cannonball's design is based on the 3rd-generation Chevrolet Corvette sports car.
    • As shown in Dear Zaurus Tokuda, Tokuda liked sports cars and owns models of them which inspired the Dash-4 Cannonball.
  • During the serialization of Dash! Yonkuro on CoroCoro Comic magazine, the Cannonball, along with Dash-5 Dancing Doll, weren't offcially named and their design wasn't finalized when they debuted. Those were corrected in the tankoubon version of the manga.
