The Roulette Cylinder (ルーレットシリンダー), was introduced as the first obstacle of Stage Three in SASUKE 25. It is similar to the old Rumbling Dice, only the Roulette Cylinder's track is shorter and instead of a box, the competitor must negotiate a cylinder with bars coming out of it. This leads directly into another new obstacle, the Doorknob Grasper.
In SASUKE 26 it was given two drops, and this was enough to take out Brian Orosco, when he failed before transitioning to the Doorknob Grasper. The Roulette Cylinder and the Doorknob Grasper were removed in favor of the Arm Bike for SASUKE 27.
The Roulette Cylinder was used in it's first 3rd stage position on American Ninja Warrior 4 and American Ninja Warrior 5 Finals and was completed by Brent Steffensen who was the only 3rd stage competitor. However in American Ninja Warrior 5, it took out rookies Idoku Abuh and Casey Finley. It was removed in American Ninja Warrior 6 in favor of the Cannonball Incline.
