Overview[edit]
Overview

Lore:Susano'o, also referred to as Black Susano'o (Full Name: Takehaya Susano'o no Mikoto), is one of the Original Units along with Tsukuyomi and Amaterasu and served as the latter's guardian for aeons before the beginning of the series. Over time however, he grew to resent the fact that he was bound to the Master Unit and dedicated his existence to destroying Amaterasu and everything she creates. In Blazblue: Central Fiction, it is revealed that Yūki Terumi is the god that originally resided within the Susano'o Unit, having cast away the Susano'o Unit long ago. After removing the unit's previous host, Hakumen, Terumi merges with his old vessel to once again assume his true form and annihilate those who stand in his way.
Playstyle
Susano'o is a heavy brawler character equipped with big buttons that can convert into incredible damage. Unlike his Central Fiction iteration, Susano'o no longer requires unlocking his specials, allowing him to use most of his specials at the start of the round.
Pros Cons
  • Jaw dropping damage output in general; can easily inflict over 8k with a 5A starter without any resources.
  • Has arguably the strongest 4A in the game, allowing for insane stagger pressure.
  • Good range overall.
  • Good Mixup options.
  • High Health.
  • Improved Mobility compared to his CF counterpart
  • Has access to many fantastic active switch moves, all of them capable of setting up frighteningly strong mixup.
  • Several jump cancels on block
  • Solid space control assists
  • Many of his attacks move him forward, making his hit-confirms very easy even from max poke distance.
  • Basic BnB combo almost guarantees you the corner when you land it.
  • No standing overheads besides 5C, meaning your overhead mixups will rely mostly on fuzzies
  • Lengthy recovery on buttons makes him vulnerable to well timed pushblocks.
  • Hitscan is bound to his assist, so his anti-projectile options are limited to Inevitable Calamity, proper movement, or assists
  • Large hurtbox makes it difficult to deal with zoners
  • All of his normals, save for 4A, lack strong disjointed hitboxes.
  • Slow mashing options on wakeup

[edit]

  • Solid range, decently quick.
  • Jump cancellable on block

5A is a strong poke option, has a nice hitbox, leads into a strong confirm on hit, overall solid neutral tool. It's your main ground button if you don't want to be greedy with 5B.


  • Moves forward
  • Jump cancellable on block

5AA converts very easily after tail, even at max distance. Also a decent pressure tool thanks to its cancel options


  • Moves forward also
  • Will bring airborne opponents to the ground

5AAA is the easy bake combo stabilizer. It will hit a lot higher up than you'd think.


  • Again, moves forward

You will only really use 5AAAA for Cross Raid. And even then, this move whiffs quite easily once the hitstun decay gets really low, making it quite unreliable to use as far as Cross Raids go. Doing it early in a combo is also ill-advised since you are sacrificing your assist meter, and the minimum damage isn't that much better due to Susano'o's already impressive damage scaling on his moveset.

[edit]

  • Hits in front of and below Susano'o, making it a decent jump-in and great for fuzzies on taller characters.

While not nearly as versatile as j.B, it still has some advantages. It's easier to use for air to ground conversions off of Dancing Dual Kick. Unlike j.B, it's angle is the same throughout the entirety of it's actives, meaning it can serve as a better air to ground in certain situations due to j.B's downward hitbox extending on frame 13.


  • Hits in almost the same exact place as j.A

j.AA has very limited use. Against tall characters, this will connect after an instant j.A. It's not optimal as far as combo filler goes due to it's average scaling and damage.

j.B[edit]

Version Damage GuardHow this attack can be guarded. Throws have their throw range listed instead. StartupShows how many frame that the corresponding move needs to go through in order to reach its active frames.

[edit]

  • Hits twice. Both hits are jump cancellable.
  • When second hit connects with an airborne opponent, they will be sent to the ground.

Susano'o's most versatile air normal. Due to it's speed and hitboxes, this move can serve both as an air-to-air, or an air-to-ground normal. Additionally, both hits of this normal are overheads, allowing Susano'o to fuzzy most of the cast.


  • Can connect after both hits of j.B in certain routes

Primarily combo filler, has landing recovery but will still be + as long as you didn't use it really high up.

[edit]

  • Does a small hop up before going all the way to the ground
  • If the opponent is hit in the air, they'll enter a pseudo-capture and be dragged to the ground. Does more hits the higher up you were.
  • May cross up mid screen if done up close, the opponent won't be dragged in front of you and will leave you extremely minus even on hit

This is Susano'o's strong overhead active swap option. For maximum effectiveness on AS do it after j.B to make them stand block for more overhead hits. Otherwise it's a form of combo ender especially if you got them with a weird hit you can't really full convert off of

[edit]

  • Jump cancellable on hit or block
  • There's a small pause between the slide and the kick that launches, leaving a 10 frame gap in between the two hits.
  • This move alone is a selling point to put this character into your team

Not only is this your main launcher in solo-confirms, this is arguably the most valuable active switch move in Susano'o's arsenal, and a very lethal one at that. It's near impossible to pushblock and it's multi-hitting nature allows for some incredibly easy unblockable situations. The only downside to this is that if they choose to take the low as a starter, you won't likely get much damage off of it due to it's horrible initial proration. Additionally, you can use this as his ender to get an incredibly powerful safejump and mixup setup that catches neutral, back, or forward tech.

[edit]

  • Command grab, though slow on startup. Lunges forward slightly.
  • Will drag the opponent all the way to the corner when this connects.

Can convert into a combo after landing. Be wary of using this solo. Due to it's EX flash, long startup, and high recovery, you are potentially sentencing yourself for a painful punish if your opponent isn't sleeping on this move. However, due to it having throw invincibility on startup it can be used as a solid throw bait tool. Certain teams can abuse this move to create unblockable situations. Unlike 236B unblockable setups, 214C unblockable setups have the benefit of being unburstable.

[edit]

  • Lv2 Hunter's Fang's Pillar

Insanely tall anti air assist that hits as high as you think it does. This assist possesses the least amount of block stun out of Susano'o's kit, so it's not ideal for plugging holes in pressure. 4P is a projectile and that means it can destroy other projectiles as well as that there is no hitstop/blockstop applied to Susano'o when he uses it, making it a good assist to active switch into Susano'o with situationally. Additionally the visual effect is a layer in front of the characters so you can use it to hide mixups when spaced correctly.

  • Only available in Level 4 Resonance Blaze when the opponent has one character left, requires 9 Skill Gauge stocks.
  • Opponent cannot Cross Burst during this attack.
  • Grants victory on a successful hit.
  • 100% minimum damage

Susano'o attempts a downward hand swipe to slam his opponent to the floor, if it connects he unleashes the real power of his "God Slaying Sword" and destroys everything around. This can be combo'd into from almost any ground hit normal easily. 2C, Throws, and 236B (except for the final hit) are the most consistent ways to combo into it. Because this will always win you the match if you hit it, if the opportunity to combo into astral arises you should always use it.
