General info

The Dancing Doll featuring the blocky body design that has the large blue cockpit piece that occupies the bodyshell from the front to the middle. There are fins that can be found on the bodyshell, with a pair of vertical fins on the top of the rear, a pair of horizontal fins on the sides of the rear and another pair of vertical fins on the side cowls. There's also a large fan on the back. On the side cowls, there's a pair of headlamps, placed just on front of the vertical fins. The front monoshock prop and rear dual damper prop can be found on the bodyshell.

The bodyshell is mainly in red, with white trims on it. The '5' and CoroCoro Dragon decals are also presents.

The standard model was equipped with the white, middle-diameter 4-spoke Hotshot-type wheels paired with the black high-profile slick tires, while the Premium variant was equipped with the silver, large-diameter 5-spoke TZ-type wheels with the black Avante-type slick tires. The standard model has its chassis molded in black, while, the Premium variant has its chassis frame molded in dark blue and the A parts and the easy locking gear cover were molded in yellow.

In the manga and anime


The Dash-5 Dancing Doll, as seen in Hyper Dash! Yonkuro.

In Dash! Yonkuro, Rinko received the car from her brother Kaidanji after the Dash Warriors was formed. The Dancing Doll has the large fan that spins to creates downforces, similar to the wing cars. Like the rest of the Dash machines, it is equipped with the special chassis.[1]

In Hyper Dash! Yonkuro, the Dancing Doll was eventually replaced by the Dancing Divine Doll after the Dash Warrior's first win against Dark Dominion in the series of races. What happened to the Dancing Doll after that is unknown.[2]

Due to Hyper Dash! Yonkuro ignores the events of Shin Dash! Yonkuro, it has two successors: The Dash-05 Dame the Dancing Doll and the aforementioned Dancing Divine Doll.
