The Hyper Raider (Japanese: ハイパーレイダー) is a yo-yo licensed to Bandai for distribution in Asian countries by Yomega in the late-1990s as part of the Hyper Yo-Yo line-up.

It was also re-released in the 2003-2004 incarnation of the line. Recently in 2010, it was released again, this time as the StormTiger (Japanese: ストームタイガー).


As can be easily seen, the Hyper Raider is the Hyper Yo-Yo adaptation of the Yomega Raider, distributed in Asian countries by Bandai, especially in Japan, where the Hyper Yo-Yo boom was in full swing at the time. It features pretty much the same shape, ball bearing axle, and performance, but with edited side cap art now reading "Yomega-Bandai 1998 Made in USA Hyper Raider". It was noted by some to be a bit more responsive than the original Raider. The Hyper Raider was also one of the most well-known and popular models in the original Japanese Hyper Yo-Yo line, having seen use by even the members of Team High Performance Japan.
