Jin is one of the main characters of BlazBlue, younger brother of the main protagonist Ragna the Bloodedge, and the wielder of the Nox Nyctores weapon "Yukianesa." After Yuuki Terumi's attack on Jin and Ragna's childhood household which left them seperated, Jin was found and adopted by the prestigious Kisaragi family. As a teenager in the NOL Military Academy, Jin was popular and stoic, being seen as a model student by all. Jin is a very composed person that usually acts somewhat cold when interacting with others, but deep down is secretly competitive, ambitious, and yearns for emotional attachment. Though usually disinterested in others, he has opened himself up on occasion to become friends with former classmates at the Academy, holding a particular soft spot toward Tsubaki Yayoi, Jin's long-time childhood friend and currently his personal secretary. Now called the "Hero of Ikagura," Jin has become an esteemed major with his own unit, and is an exceptional soldier, commander and martial artist.


Jin is a very well-rounded rushdown character with a wide variety of tools to handle any situation and conquer the neutral game. His "Hishou-" and "Musou-" ranged options allow him to both poke at and approach his opponents comfortably, while giving him fantastic pressure when up close. Jin's normals and BnB combos also have very solid damage, with his Crash Assault being particularly fast and deceptive. Additionally, Jin has a great set of assists, while also being able to deal with 1v1's and 1v2's relatively comfortably, making him superb as both a Point and an Anchor. Overall, Jin has no outstanding weaknesses besides having slightly lower range on his normals when compared to fighters such as Ruby or Gordeau, but his projectile tools and decent speed generally make up for this trivial flaw.


Strengths Weaknesses
  • Very well-rounded character with standardized attributes that has a tool for almost any situation, giving him a good matchup spread.
  • One of the best 5C's in the game due to its high speed, deceptive animation, and combo utility.
  • Has projectiles that can lock down opponents or reset pressure.
  • High damage A Smart Combo that can juggle opponents, switches sides, and has good scaling.
  • Frost End attacks can restand opponents for tricky resets.
  • Diverse set of phenomenal assists, allowing him to work well with almost any team member.
  • Touga Hyojin distortion can do just about anything; reversal, anti-air, punish from full screen, stop zoning, etc.
  • Has high comeback potential, especially with Level 4 Resonance. Jin has high chip damage through his Touga distortion and can use multiple supers in the same combo for massive damage.
  • Somewhat lower range compared to other characters.
  • All of his projectiles (except his supers) disappear from the screen if he gets hit.
  • Has costly and difficult-to-wield anti-airs as they are rather slow and lack horizontal range.
  • Susceptible to Reject Guard during his A Smart Combo as it relies on canceling into other moves to stay safe.
  • Requires a partner or resonance blaze to convert off his command special overheads outside of IAD, which can be easily anti-aired.
  • While he does have a strong assist kit, he is best suited for partners that cover his vulnerabilities when supporting and requires strong team-game fundamentals to make good use of.

Drive: Frostbite[edit]

Jin's drive used to have a system called a "Freeze Count" that limited how many times his drive attacks could encase his opponents in ice. In BBTAG, Frostbite no longer has a freeze count limiter and thus moves that can freeze can do so an unlimited amount of times. In exchange, only a few moves inflict a true frozen state. All other Drive attacks now only have guaranteed hitstun that ignores basic hitstun scaling but is still susceptible to the state of the combo timer. For efficiency's sake, we will call the attacks with the classic freeze effect "Frost End" attacks (named after the overdrive version of Jin's Drive from the mainline BB games) and all other drive using attacks will be referred to by the drive's original name, "Frostbite".

  • Touga Hyojin (Resonance Blaze only)
  • Hiyoku Getsumei (All versions, first hit only)

Normal Moves[edit]

The Slap
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
1000 All 6 3 11 -2
  • Whiffs on crouchers. Also whiffs on short character like Linne, even if they aren't crouching.
  • Cancelable into everything, including jumps, throws, and even itself.

Old 5A. Jin's fastest button and thus great at disrupting enemy pressure. Can be used as an anti-air thanks to the high placement of its hitbox but this also makes vulnerable to low-profiling. Only combos or true blockstrings into itself, 5A, 2A, and 5B, which makes it impossible to combo off a max height 4A anti-air. After three consecutive 4As, any further A inputs will result in 5A. It should be noted that after a jump in, 4a can be used to hit crouching opponents once so it can be useful for setting up tic-throw.

5A 800*2 All 7 2(4)1 19 -3
  • Hits twice.
  • Throw cancelable on either hit.
  • Jump cancelable on hit on either hit.
  • Both hits vacuum opponents.

Old 5B. Fast kick that pulls opponents closer to Jin for pressure and mix-ups. Has short range when compared to most other 5As. Second hit whiffs at the first hit's max range. Can cancel into 2A and back, allowing him to use this move twice in the same string.

5AA 1700 All 15 6 30 -17
  • Has Frostbite properties.
  • Throw cancelable.

Old 6D. Jin creates a jagged wall of ice that, thanks to his drive, has high hitstun, making it effective for canceling into slower moves. As of 2.0, this move has massive hitstun and blockstun, making it safe on block, allowing him to combo into 5C against grounded opponents, and makes an immediate cancel into 5C a true blockstring. However, it is now impossible to frame trap into Sekkajin as even the most delayed cancel is still a true blockstring. Has less vertical range than the animation implies. Last point in his A Smart Combo that can cancel into B normals. Be sure to avoid going into this too often in blockstrings as it has high recovery on whiff and will leave Jin vulnerable if the opponent Reject Guards.

5AAA 650*4 All 8 2(3)2(3)2(3)2 28 -5
  • Hits 4 times.
  • Stuns grounded opponents on hit.
  • Launches airborne opponents away on hit.
  • Only cancels into 5AAAA if the final hit connected or was blocked.

Old 22C. Jin slashes multiple times at lightning speed before returning his sword to its sheathe. The only normal this move can cancel into is 5AAAA, which makes this move difficult to use in blockstrings. Devastating starter due to its high damage and fantastic scaling but as 5AA can no longer frame trap into this move using it as a starter is very unlikely and highly situational. The stun is greatly extended on grounded counter hit, allowing Jin to continue the combo into essentially any attack. The final hit of this move is safe on block but is punishable if the opponent Reject Guards an earlier hit.

5AAAA 500, 1700 All 17 10 60 -51
  • Has Frost End properties.
  • Hits twice.
  • First hit switches sides on both hit and block.
  • Second hit only occurs if the first successfully hit the point character.
  • Second hit launches opponents away on hit.
  • Passes through on frames 18-29.
  • Opponent cannot Cross Burst during this attack.

Old 22C~D. Jin dashes through the opponent and freezes them with a slash from his sword. Upon sheathing his blade, the opponent is broken out the ice. This is a good combo ender due to it's high damage, good scaling, quick start-up, and safe-jump oki. Very easy to extend via assists thanks to the full freeze on hit, though note that the opponent is invincible until they thaw out so make sure to time assists properly. Hilariously unsafe on block or whiff so only use this move in combos. Must be canceled into immediately after the final hit of Sekkajin or this move will fail to come out.

5B 1500 All 10 4 19 -6
  • Jump cancelable.

Old 5C. Jin's primary tool for pokes and starting punish combos thanks to this attack's great range and fantastic scaling. Used in essentially every combo and blockstring. On the first active frame 5B has a high vertical hitbox, so it can be an effective anti air if the opponent isn't too high in the air or is attempting to IAD over Jin. Good for setting up resets and frame traps thanks to its deceptive recovery animation and being jump cancelable.

5BB 1700 All 15 8 15 -4
  • Has Frostbite properties.

Old 5D. Jin thrusts out his hand and creates a lion's head out of ice. The lastest move Jin can cancel into while still being safe on block so stop here if you think the opponent is trying to reversal out of pressure. Can combo into 5A on counter hit. Good for frame trapping and ending a blockstring with 5BB Hishouken or sneaking in a low with 5BB 2C Hishouken.

5BBB 1700 All 15 3 31 -15
  • Jump cancelable.
  • Launches opponent on hit.

Old 6C. Jin holds his blade in a reverse grip and slashes upward, back facing the enemy. Jin's only grounded normal launcher and his primary tool for starting air combos. Can anti-air opponents thanks to its large hitbox but this is difficult to do as it is only usable after 5BB.

  • Flash on frame 4.
  • Knockdown on airborne hit.
  • On standing hit, leads into a timed follow-up.
  • Follow-up damage, meter gain, oki, and timing changes if partner is available.

Old Crush Trigger. One of the best 5C's in the game thanks to its visually deceptive animation (Jin crouches and attacks from below instead of above), long range, fast start-up, and Jin's ability to combo directly into it off 5AA against grounded opponents. Generally not used if an assist is available as jump-ins or tiger-kneed Hizangeki's are more flexible and ambiguous mix-up options. Since he lacks any other grounded overheads and tiger-kneed EX Hizangeki can only lead into a combo if it is done in the corner, Jin must use this move if he wants to mix-up opponents without a partner. That being said, don't use this carelessly as Jin is unsafe on block.

1000 Low 9 2 15 -3
  • Hits low.

Old 2B. Only safe low and also his fastest, making this attack vital in Jin's mix-up game. Can be chained into his 5A and back. Note that doing so will prevent Jin from using 5AA, 5AAA, or 5AAAA in that string. Do keep in mind the startup frames, so if you want to mash out of something it is recommended to use 5A or 5B if they are farther away.

1700 All 14 3 31 -15
  • 8-16f head invulnerable.
  • Jump cancelable.

Old 2C. Jin's dedicated anti-air and his out right best due to its humongous hitbox and ability to be made safe via jump cancels. Keep in mind that its horizontal range isn't the greatest, that this move is very unsafe on whiff, and it isn't air unblockable so don't throw out this move without a plan.

1700 Low 13 4 28 -13
  • Hits low.
  • Knockdown on hit.

Old 3C. Sword sweep with amazing range that can also low profile many attacks. Can be difficult to use in combos due to Jin lacking any moves that plummet the opponent while also being cancelable. Generally used for long range mix-ups into A Musou Senshouzan or Musou Tousshugeki for either a combo or to be safe on block. At the end of highly scaled combos, this move can only combo into either Hirensou or a super.

  • Double jump cancelable.

Old j.B. Jin spins and hits opponents with his sleeves. Has a wide hitbox and can be used to cross up opponents. Note that the hitbox doesn't extend fully until near the end of the animation. Not used in most combos as it deals the least damage out off all his air normals. Keep in mind the hurtbox extends to his sleeves and has high whiff recovery so be sure to be use it wisely.

j.AA 1700 High 10 6 20 -

Old j.C. Long range and high damage, making it useful in air combos. Mostly combo and blockstring filler.

Old j.C. Long range and high damage, making it Jin's best jump-in. As of 2.0, this move can now be used in neutral which greatly improves Jin's air-to-air capabilities and safe-jump potential, seeing as he can now reach out far enough to catch opponents.

j.BB 1700 High 13 5 24 -

Old j.D. Jin surrounds himself with an ice sculpture of a snowflake. Used at the end of every air combo thanks to its high damage and long hitstun which guarantees a follow-up such as Hizangeki or Hiyoku Getsumei. Also another decent cross-up tool but one that lacks any meaningful follow-ups.

  • 100% minimum damage. (2000)
  • Has Frost End properties.
  • Holding back while pressing throw results in a back throw.
  • If the opponent is already in throw range, Jin will run a short distance before attempting a throw.
  • Opponents cannot burst during a throw.

Jin grabs the opponent and freezes them. The freeze doesn't last long so only moves as fast as his 5B will combo off of it. If the enemy thaws out they will be left in a standing position. This means that this throw can be used to create reset opportunities with lows, overheads, cross-ups, and even another throw. Note that the opponent can reversal through any of these options so consider baiting them or just taking the guaranteed damage via a combo. Both forward and back throws do the same thing with slightly different animations.

  • First hit launches opponents upward.
  • Second hit launches opponents away.
  • Cannot Cross Burst if punished.
  • 5% minimum damage. 100 + 50 = 150

Jin slashes in a circle around himself and then in front of himself. Fully invincible reversal that is also his only air unblockable move, making it a good anti-air, even more so if he has assist available for a full combo conversion. The follow-up attack always occurs regardless of whether it hit or not, however the timing of the attack changes if Jin manages to hit an opponent in the air, resulting in the attack coming out late. While this is a good thing in most cases as it helps the follow-up connect properly, if the initial attack hits at max height then the follow-up will always whiff. That being said, it has enough untech on the first hit that even if the second hit doesn't combo you are safe from a punish. Combine this with Jin's far reaching, fast air normals and his myriad projectiles to make it very difficult for the opponent to dictate the neutral.

Jin releases a short sword made of ice to zone and pester the opponent into doing something risky. Ground version travels faster than the air version. Air version also results in Jin floating backwards after launching the ice sword. Unsafe at point-blank range but at mid-screen to full screen the projectile is safe or even plus on block.

  • Has Frostbite properties.
  • Hits 3 times.

Jin slowly creates then launches a greatsword of ice in front of him, picking up speed as it travels forward. Has very long start-up which makes Jin vulnerable to opponents attacks. Should only be used when an assist is available to cover him or if the opponent lacks any tools to deal with it at full-screen. Generally used to cover Jin's approach and lock-down opponents for mix-ups. Leads directly into a combo on a successful hit. The air version is used as a combo part in corner combos for optimal damage.

  • Hits low.
  • Launches opponent on hit.
  • Follow-up attack can be done even if the first whiffs.
  • Can cancel into followup on frames 18-24.
  • Follow-up attack knocks down on hit.

Jin rides on a giant icicle which he rams into opponents, following up with a downward slash of his sword. This is his go-to combo ender for ground combos thanks to the follow-up's safe-jump oki. Note that even though the initial hit is done with an ice-based attack, this move lacks the Frostbite trait of his drive.

A: The icicle travels a short distance. This is Jin's best special move for mix-ups and ending blockstrings as it is safe on block.

B: The icicle travels a slightly longer distance than 'A' version. Has the same start-up as the A version but deals more damage which makes it the best for ending combos. Should never be used for blockstrings as it is unsafe on block and it puts Jin at point-blank range. As of 2.0, the second hit now comes out automatically making it great for AS options and lockdown.

  • Knocks down on hit.

Jin slashes diagonally downward. Should never be used to end combos as Hizangeki is simply a better combo ender. The fast start-up and knockdown on hit makes it useful in corner Cross Combos for looping assist attacks as quickly as possible. Note that this attack doesn't hit overhead like the Hizangeki does, which makes it difficult to recommend using this move in neutral or blockstrings at all.

  • Has Frostbite properties.
  • Second hit is an overhead, knocks down on hit.

Jin slashes twice, once horizontally and once diagonally downward. This is his best meterless air combo ender and as most of Jin's combos result in a launch, nearly every combo will end with this attack. Can lead into safe-jump oki if it is used low to the ground while the opponent is slightly above Jin. Takes 25 frames (plus a few frames of hitstop on hit or block) before the second attack occurs, making it a very reactable overhead and one that can only be followed up by using an assist. Still sees some use in triple overhead mix-ups after j.2BB.

  • Has Frostbite properties.
  • Hits 3 times.
  • Launches on any hit.
  • 10% minimum damage. 100 x 3 = 300.

Jin creates a snowflake projectile that hovers in place. It will remain until one of the following conditions are fulfilled; it hits something 3 times, it is hit by a projectile that hits 3 or more times, it has existed for 3 seconds, or if Jin gets hit. Swapping characters won't make it disappear but if Jin is hit as an assist the projectile will still vanish. This is outright the single best tool to spend meter on as it resets pressure, enables free mix-ups, creates sandwich situations, shields Jin from projectiles, and can extend combos. Can be placed in a variety of different positions which can all control space on the screen. On the ground, it forces jumps, denies any lunging attacks or ground dashes, and eats weak projectiles. In the air it can discourage aerial approaches and forces the opponent to play Jin's game of spacing and footsies. Placing it on top of downed characters results in easy oki and so can using it on incoming enemy partners after the point character. The possibilities are endless but Jin's meter is not so don't use this recklessly.

Jin rides an icicle and instead of following through with a downward slash, he stabs forward to knock opponents away. Can extend just about any ground combo thanks to the follow-ups's wall bounce. Oddly enough, the initial icicle hit has Frostbite properties while the non-EX versions of this move lack it.

Meter using version of Hizangeki that has better damage and frame data. The extra damage at the end of long combos is negligible, only really used to add a little extra damage in Resonance Blaze before super canceling into air Hiyoku Getsumei to guarantee a kill. Used primarily for its ability to start solo instant overhead combos in the corner by tiger kneeing this attack and using 2A to pick up the opponent. Can also be used as a general overhead if an assist is available as the second hit has 17 frames of start-up, making it useful in blockstrings after a jump cancel.

  • Launches opponent on hit.

  • Followup attack knocks down on hit.

Jin's best assist for basic combo extensions thanks to its speed and range. Somewhat poor at locking down opponents as the second hit only occurs on hit. When using this assist for combos, note that to avoid whiffing attacks against downed opponents, either use moves that can reach prone opponents or time the assist so that the point character can hit the opponent before Jin slams them into the ground.

  • Has Frostbite properties.
  • Hits 3 times.

One of the best assists in the game because of how much pressure it applies to your opponent and how it can setup mix-ups when used alongside Active Switch. This assist should be used as frequently as possible. Can be used for all the same set-ups as Jin's stand-alone version. Due to the startup and the speed it travels, you are going to want to call 6P when the point character is able to cover it and in certain assist matchups you will need to Cross Combo to prevent Jin from getting smacked.

Jin slashes diagonally upward. This is his anti-air assist and it is one of the best in the game due to its incredibly high speed and range. Note that this attacks lacks head invulnerability, meaning it can trade or be beaten by aerial attacks. Cosmetically, this attack is used during Jin's 5C follow-up.

Jin slashes his sword and releases a wave of ice. Fantastic reversal super that is surprisingly safe on block, even being plus in some cases while doing a fair amount of chip damage. Has massive push-back on hit or block which is good for keeping the opponent at a distance. Can also punish zoning as the projectile has unlimited hits and will consume all regular projectiles while ignoring others. May result in a trade as this move has very few frames of invulnerability. In Resonance Blaze, this move deals significantly more chip damage and gains a follow-up attack that greatly increases the final damage and provides safe-jump oki even if the initial projectile only hit once. Higher RB levels means more chip damage and additional meter and passive meter regeneration with which to use this move. It's only downsides are its projectile property making it susceptible to projectile invincible moves and its low minimum damage, most notably on the final hit of the follow-up with its abysmally low .044% minimum damage scaling.

Jin uses his sheathed sword as the base for an ice bow which he loads with an arrow-like icicle. If the arrow successfully strikes an opponent, it unleashes energy that strikes the opponent multiple times. This is Jin's highest damaging super and the only one that can be used in mid-air, making this his go-to combo ender for finishing off opponents. The frame advantage of the grounded version on hit is determined by how far they are launched after the final hit, thus Jin has a higher frame advantage when he is cornered and has the least when the opponent is cornered. Grants safe-jump oki everywhere except in the corner. In Resonance Blaze, both versions can combo into Touga Hyojin for massive damage. The invulnerable start-up and the attack's upward trajectory means this super can be used as an anti-air, albeit an expensive and risky one. As Jin's only air reversal, this move can be used to avoid air reset situations. While this super can hit assists only the first hit will connect, leaving them frozen in ice for a short time and launching them to the other side of the screen. The frozen assist cannot be damaged by any attack other than an additional usage of this super making the true freeze extremely difficult to utilize.

Jin's old counter super turned assist super. Jin performs a dashing slash with his sword, freezing the opponent. After sheathing his blade, the opponent thaws out and slumps to the floor. This super hits full screen horizontally and reaches about as high vertically as Jin's 2B. Can catch both the opponent and their assist but note that once Jin traps them in ice any remaining hits in the point character's super will whiff.

  • Requires 9 bars of meter, level 4 Resonance Blaze, and the opponent must have one character remaining.
  • Invincible on start-up.
  • Has Frost End properties.
  • Hits low.
  • Grants victory upon a successful hit.

Jin stabs the ground and covers it with frost, trapping the opponent in a continually growing column of ice. After draining all their strength, Jin sheaths his sword as the ice shatters. Very easy to combo into and has a huge reward on hit so end combos with it whenever possible. Can be used as a very high risk, very high reward reversal. Can also punish ground-based zoning or raw supers from full screen.
