"This is getting a little bothersome. Can I leave the rest of the work to you?"
Hazama is a captain of the Novus Orbis Librarium's (NOL) Intelligence Department and one of the first antagonists of the series. In reality, he is an artificial human created as a host for the soul of Yuuki Terumi, a former member of the Six Heroes and the creator of the Azure Grimoire and, by extension, the Black Beast. Although Hazama usually retains a calm and charming demeanor, this is simply a mask with which he hides his selfish and manipulative personality that lurks underneath. At the end of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, he and Terumi become seperate, and he gains his own will. During the events of Central Fiction, he puts his manipulation skills he picked up from his time as Terumi's host in order to pursue his own mysterious agenda.
Hazama uses his Ouroboros chains to zip across the stage, either to approach his opponent or to run away. Once in, he can use his stance-mixups or his command grab to open them up and start in on any one of his myriad combo routes that lead into an aerial j.C ender, which places him in a great position to start everything over again.
At close range, Hazama is notably lacking. Although his tools are all decently fast, they barely cover any space. The ones that do, i.e. 2C and his 214s, all need resources to get damage off of. Due to this, its best to try to avoid close range footsies without some serious mind game trickery up your sleeve.
In general, with Hazama, you want to slip in, sneak in a hit, do some damage, then slip out.
Named after a snake that eats its own tail, Hazama's Drive is manifested as a stretching chain in the shape of a snake. He can cover many different angles and distances by shooting a Drive move. Although Hazama's drive has returned in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, veteran Hazama players from the BlazBlue series will notice a few changes have been made.
- Hazama's chains are now mapped to his B buttons.
- There are no longer any stocks for his chain.
- He no longer has multiple followups from his chains. Instead, you can do the D followup by continuing the B auto combo.
