The Stealth Raider (Japanese: ステルスレイダー) is a yo-yo produced by Yomega and distributed by Bandai as part of the Hyper Yo-Yo line. It was first released in December 1997.


The Stealth Raider is a specialized version of the Hyper Raider, featuring the flared shape first seen in the Stealth Fire to allow players to pull off string tricks easier, such as Man on the Flying Trapeze and the Braintwister. Of course, it's got the same internal components; a ball bearing axle with metal spacers and a starburst response system.

The Stealth Raider was known as one of the most popular models of the original Hyper Yo-Yo line-up, especially with players from overseas, which resulted in the release of the Yomega Saber Raider yo-yo in North America and Europe. It was also re-released in the 2003-2004 iteration of the Hyper Yo-Yo range.

As time progressed, the abilities exhibited by the Stealth Raider were pushed further and further with new developments in yo-yo design. However, there's still a demand for this yo-yo by players both new and old.


  • The Stealth Raider name was used by one of the two "Super Advanced" model yo-yos in Megcorp's 2009 Super Yo-Yo line. This Stealth Raider is an auto-return yo-yo instead of a ball-bearing string trick yo-yo like the other one.
  • The Stealth Raider, along with the Stealth Fire (the Hyper Yo-Yo version of the Saber Wing Fireball), was also featured on a print ad for Club THP.
