Overview[edit]

"This is getting a little bothersome. Can I leave the rest of the work to you?"

Backstory[edit]

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 separate, 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.

Playstyle[edit]

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.

Strengths/Weaknesses[edit]

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Lots of effective smart combo routes that deal damage and build meter.
  • His B normals give him a large amount of range, being essentially the same as his D moves.
  • Amazing Reversal Action.
  • 236B+C is incredibly threatening.
  • Solid mixup options supplemented by his special moves.
  • Embarrassingly small footsies range, requiring him to close the gap often.
  • Awkward mobility options limit his approaches severely.
  • No drive chain that deals with air approaches.
  • Being predictable in your approaches can easily get yourself anti-aired.
  • Needs either meter or partner to convert his stance specials.


Drive: Ouroboros[edit]

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.

  1. Hazama's chains are now mapped to his B buttons.
  2. There are no longer any stocks for his chain.
  3. He no longer has multiple followups from his chains. Instead, you can do the D followup by continuing the B auto combo.



Normal Moves[edit]

4A[edit]
4A
BBCS Hazama 5B.png
Jesus Knee
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
1300 All - - - -
  • 5B from Blazblue.
  • Cancels forward momentum, meaning no sliding knee.
  • NOT A JAB.
  • Classic poke.


Lost a lot of its stagger pressure potential due to losing the slide. Still, it's a good backup for if 5A won't hit due to speed or range.


5A[edit]

Mini Houtenjin!
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
5A - All - - - -
  • Hazama's 5C from BlazBlue.
  • Short range normal, very high damage combo starter.
  • Special cancel-able on hit.

5C has short horizontal range and a long recovery, but is still a great button to have. It has the lowest P2 in Hazama's entire moveset besides 2C, making it his strongest combo starter in terms of damage reward. On hit you can continue smart comboing, or use 2C > Houtenjin to create tons of damage.

Also, this is not your poke. NOT YOUR POKE. NOT YOUR POKE.

5AA - All - - - -
  • Exceed Accel animation from Blazblue Centralfiction.
  • Special cancel-able on hit

Detailed description of the usefulness of the move go here

5AAA - All - - - -
  • BB's Venom Sword (Jabaki) AKA 236A/D.
  • Special cancel-able on hit.

On ground hit it does nothing special, but if hit in airborne the opponent will go sliding, letting them untechable for a long time and allows you to follow up by 5B. Mostly you will do 5AAA > 5BBB > reland or JC, or just do Mizuchi to end the combo.

5AAAA - All - - - -23
  • A slightly worse version of Unlimited Hazama's 236B.
  • Launches on hit.
  • Very unsafe on block.

Try to make this move safe when blocked with your assist due to its recovery. Can also call your assist to extend the smart combo if the kick isn't blocked.


5B[edit]

I sure do hope I don't get anti-aired...
BBCS Hazama jB.png
Still technically j5B...
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
5B 1500 All - - - -
  • Hazama's 5D from BB.
  • Hazama throws out his chain as a projectile.
  • Pressing B again at any point will have Haz pull himself in to wherever the chain currently is.
  • Special cancel-able on hit or block.


Chains in BBTAG lack the deadzone of chains from other Blazblue games, making them excellent combo tools at any range.

5BB - All - - - -
  • 'D' followup to his drive moves in Blazblue.
  • Hazama pulls himself in to the chain.
  • Not actually an attack.
  • Cannot act immediately after pulling yourself in.

Hazama lost his chain stocks, giving him infinite access to this followup. As nice as that is, do NOT make a habit of blindly pulling yourself in in neutral. You are very vulnerable to anti-airs on the way in.
Use j5C to cancel your forward momentum and try to bait out anti-airs, or otherwise remain less predictable.

5BBB 1500 High - - - -
  • Hazama's j.5B from Blazblue.
  • Jump cancel-able on hit.

Mainly used as combo filler, but can be used as a VERY situational air-to-air due to its horizontal range.


5C[edit]
5C
BBCP Hazama CrushTrigger.png

  • Uses Hazama's Crush Trigger animation.

Standard Crash overhead. Good vertical range and deceptively fast despite its short horizontal range.

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
1000 Low - - - -
  • Hazama's 2B from BB.
  • Not incredibly fast, but makes up for its speed with its range.
  • Fast low.

Depending on spacing, it may be better to use this instead of 2C, as it allows you to cancel into 5A for a full combo.

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
2B 1700 All - - - -
  • Hazama's 2C from BB.
  • Launches on hit.
  • May or may not be an anti-air.

Because your only upward moving chain is tied to using this move first, expect to use this a lot when starting air combos.

2BB 1500 All - - - -
  • Hazama's old 4D.
  • Special cancel-able on hit or block.

Throws a chain at a 65 degree angle. This may actually whiff on your opponent depending on the spacing when 2B hit.

2BBB - All - - - -
  • 'D' followup to his drive moves in BB.
  • Hazama pulls himself in to the chain.
  • Not actually an attack.
  • Cannot act immediately after pulling yourself in.

This will almost always pull you close enough to continue your combo.

2BBBB 1500 All - - - -
  • Hazama's j.5B in BlazBlue.
  • Jump cancel-able on hit.

You may need to delay this button depending on both spacing and what kind of combo you're attempting.


2C[edit]
2C
BBCS Hazama 3C.png
Just... Just use 3C...no other option.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
2000 Low - - - -
  • Hazama's 3C from BlazBlue.
  • I know you're still inputting it as 3C.
  • All around one of Hazama's best pokes.
  • Hits low.
  • Special cancel-able on hit or block.
  • Use this to combo into falling/devouring fang.

Excellent range makes this a very important tool in Hazama's neutral game. Use this to harass opponents who think they're at a safe distance. However since Jabaki(Venom sword) is no longer a special move, using it at a far range could be dangerous.

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
j.B 1500 All - - - -
  • Hazama's j6D from the BB games.
  • Comes out at a great angle.
  • Can be used to pick an opponent up after Hungry Coils.
  • Can OTG.

Super aggressive angle makes this chain a great harassment tool, though lack of ability to cancel this chain means you're vulnerable when using it. Cover yourself with an assist if you can.
Pressing B immediately after the chain comes out will send you flying across the screen at a very slight upwards angle.

j.BB - All - - - -
  • 'D' followup to his drive moves in BlazBlue.
  • Hazama pulls himself in to the chain.
  • Not actually an attack.
  • Cannot act immediately after pulling yourself in.

The follow up of the chain. Do note that the next follow up(jBBB) will NOT come out after a period of time(12F). Also due to the lack of other possible follow-ups, using this move too much could be predictable and will be easily anti-air'd.

j.BBB 1500 High - - - -
  • Hazama's jB from BlazBlue.
  • Jump cancel-able on hit.

j.C[edit]

BBCF Hazama Jameijin.png
JAAAMEIJIN
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
1700 All - - - -
  • Hazama's Shadow Serpent (Jameijin) from Centralfiction.
  • Staple ender for air combos
  • Cancel-able into normals/specials on whiff
  • Stops all horizontal momentum and causes Hazama to fall quickly to the ground

Very limited use in neutral. Use this primarily as a way to take you and your opponent from the air to the ground, allowing for assist pickups or oki.
Can also be used to bait anti-airs after 5BB in neutral.
If and only if the move whiffed as Hazama lands on the ground, he can dash right after the move. Niche options include baiting a Reversal Action after a wake-up, with another Reversal Action (coupled with a Partner Skill), or giving yourself the opportunity for another anti-air, in case it was used for that purpose and whiffed. (Please note during the first frames of that option, you CANNOT BLOCK and you're still vulnerable in the very first frames of the dash cancel unless you go for a reversal)


j.2B[edit]

1500 All - - - -
  • Hazama's j4D from the old BB games.
  • For when the opponent is to close for j5B.

If the opponent is close enough for this to hit, they're probably close enough to punish you for using this if you miss, so use with caution.
Pressing B immediately after the chain comes out will send Haz across the screen starting at a more or less horizontal angle. Also called a "super air dash."

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
2300 Air Unblockable 10 - - -31
  • Can whiff on certain characters that are crouching or moves that have a low hurtbox to the ground.
  • Can be done after Jagai or Jasetsu, i.e. after the first hit of 214A or 214B, or while holding 214B or 236B.

Hazama's DP. Comes out very fast and slightly pushes Hazama backwards, but the recovery for it is a bit on the slow side so try to not whiff or have it blocked. Be wary of the dead zone because you can get punished due to low profile moves.

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
A 1500,1500 All, High 15 - - -1
  • A does Jagai-Ressenga
  • A can be held to delay the attack, which gives the charged version of Ressenga.
  • 2nd hit can be countered with reversal action on block. Use an assist to cover this move when pressuring.
B 2200 High 27 (61 if charged) - - -1
  • B does Ressenga Raw
  • B can be held to delay Ressenga

A fairly good overhead. However, using this move sticks him in place for 27 frames, and he is in a counter hit state the entire time, so attempts to use this when being approached will cause you to eat a healthy punish. Follow-ups can also be avoided by jumping back and barrier blocking if you get predictable.

Use partner skills or Houtenjin to follow-up. The timing for Houtenjin is strict (~4F), so practice is definitely needed.

  • B can be held to delay Zaneiga

Same as Ressenga, using this move sticks him in place for 22 frames, and he is in a counter hit state the entire time, so attempts to use this when being approached will cause you to eat a healthy punish. Follow-ups can also be avoided by jumping back and barrier blocking if you get predictable.

  • Hazama advances towards the opponent and performs a command grab that leaves them in a stun state. If close, he performs the command grab automatically without advancing.
  • Has no actual damage if it connects.
  • Costs 1 bar of meter.


Heavily scales the combo you receive after the stun, making for poor damage if you decide to super. However the fast startup can easily catch your opponent off guard.

  • Causes ground slide.
  • Clashes with some projectiles.

Decent horizontal range for an assist. Can extend combos in corner if it hits due to the ample time the ground slide provides. Just be aware that it slides the opponent for a decent distance in neutral. Pretty okay for covering your current point character's blockstrings.

  • Launches the opponent into the air on the 2nd hit
  • 2nd hit is untechable until the opponent touches the ground.

Good pressure assist upclose and combo extender in corner. May be used to stop air approaches in a pinch thanks to the 2nd hit having a good vertical hitbox.

  • Wallbounces anywhere.
  • Side swaps on hit.
  • Doesn't track, but very generous hitbox.

Only really useful during an air combo or after a launcher (or as a very situation anti air.)

The wallbounce doesn't "bounce" the opponent very far back to you, making this move great for corner carry.

If you REALLY need damage at the end of your combo, this move gives you plenty of time to pop Cross Combo and then immediately go for Eternal Coils, enabling you to get the enhanced super.

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
Regular 3980 All - - - -33

Serpent's Infernal Rapture, a.k.a Jayoku Houtenjin, is why Hazama is so scary once he gets 2 bar. Even the simplest midscreen combo you follow-up with after this will net you at least 7k damage. This super is best done after a normal or two because of the remarkably low P1. Most commonly, you'll see the following normals or chains of normals leading into this super: 5A, 5AA, 5A > 2C, JBBB, or any throw.

Usually, if your partner is still alive, then you should use partner skill instead of Jayoku if the damage has prorated too much.

Resonance 4980 All - - - -

Deals even more damage in Resonance Blaze while still having low P1. Confirming off from 5AA>2C>236+BC in corner and ending it with 2C>214+BC, as an example, nets you with at least 10k damage.

If you have enough bars, then at the end of the combo, you can do (2C > (some special) > Jayoku)*n > Mizuchi, creating a Hazama Airline, which will only let you go when you're dead.

  • Tracks the opponent's location.

  • Can catch opponents in the air if they're close to the ground.
  • 20% minimum damage (100*10, 600)

Great combo ender. Can be reliably combo'd off from Hungry Coils or 2C in corner as a few examples. Can also be used as a situational punish against people who zone against Hazama, but be aware of its minimum range.

Resonance 500*2, 250*24, 1250*2 (9500) All - - - -
  • 20% minimum damage (100*2 , 50*24, 250*2)
