The 1-(2,3,4,5,1',2',3',4'-octa­methyl­ferrocen-1-yl)-3-(ruth­eno­cen­yl)­allylium cation readily undergoes one-electron oxidation to a dication in which an octa­methyl­ferrocenium moiety is bridged by a vinyl­ene group to a [(η^6-fulvene)(η^5-cyclo­penta­dienyl)­ruthenium]+ moiety. In the title compound, 1-(2,3,4,5,1',2',3',4'-octa­methyl­ferrocen-1-yl)-3-(ruth­eno­cen­ylidene)prop-1-enium(2+) bis­(tetra­fluoro­borate), [Fe­Ru­(C_5H_5)(C_9H_(13))(C_(17)H_(19))]­(BF_4)_2, the C-C bond lengths in the bridge (average for two independent mol­ecules) are, starting from the ipso octa­methyl­ferrocenium carbon and ending at the exo carbon of the coordinated fulvene, 1.455 (6), 1.344 (3) and 1.449 (8) Å, indicating a localized electronic structure.
