Team role



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.


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.


Strengths Weaknesses
  • Jaw dropping damage output in general; can easily inflict over 8k with a 5A starter without any resources.
  • 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.

Normal Moves

BBCF Susanoo 5A.png
Respect my Oki!
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Short range, comes out quickly
  • Gatlings into itself.
  • Disjointed Hitbox, making it a solid counter poke option.

Strong stagger pressure option. While slow in comparison to other 4A's, you can both meaty someone on wakeup while baiting DP's(except counters) due to it's insanely low recovery.

God's Tail

If you hit tail, you ain't whiffing this.

Combo fuel. No longer a high like in CF.
BBCF Susanoo 5D.png
It's going to be weird not seeing this in combos anymore.
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Solid range, decently quick.
  • Jump cancellable on block

Strong poke option, has a nice hitbox, leads into a strong confirm on hit, overall solid neutral tool.

  • Moves forward
  • Jump cancellable on block

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

This 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 this for Cross Raid.

You forgot about 5A didn't you...

Fear the stagger
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Wouldn't you know it, this moves forward also

Slightly slower but more damaging than 5A. Your ideal punish on whiffed or blocked DPs. Leans back slightly during it's first few frames of startup, allowing you to cause some moves to whiff in mid range. Paired with 5BB, this works as one of Susano'o's many stagger pressure options.

  • You guessed it: It moves forward.

Strong frametrap option with massive reward if it hits, also huge damage combo tool you will use a lot. Much like 5B, you'll be using this quite a bit in your combos.

It's not Cleaving Fang, but it will have to do.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Important points go here

Susanoo's only standing overhead in this game, not something to rely on but you will use it occasionally.

BBCF Susanoo 2B.png
It's finally a low!
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Surprisingly jump cancellable on block
  • Can also gatling back into itself

This is another strong pressure tool. You will use it in stagger a good bit thanks to it having so many cancel options as well as being a low.

BBCF Susanoo 2C.png
Overrated by non-Susano'o player's since CF...
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Hits twice. First hitbox is lower than the second hitbox.
  • Jump cancellable, but only on the second hit.

Susano'o's anti-air, while the head invuln is meh and the hitbox isn't too great it is good at stuffing crossup due to hitting on both sides.

BBCF Susanoo 3C.png
Less active than 236B, but better scaling as a starter.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Good reach, hits twice.

Strong active swap tool, good combo filler, one of the best sweeps in the game arguably. Due to high recovery frames making it vulnerable to push block, it's ill advised to throw it out during pressure unless you are using active switch.

BBCF Susanoo jB.png
Do not forget about this button for neutral
BBCF Susanoo jA.png
Regretfully not a stand-alone button
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • 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

Against tall characters, this will connect after an instant j.A

No longer knocks down for Oki, oddly enough.
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • 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.

Hunter’s Fang
BBCF Susanoo HuntersFang.png
While we only have the air-variant of spin, it's now an overhead.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • 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

Towering Flame
BBCF Susanoo ToweringFlame.png
Handy versus sandwich mixups, but poor at anti-airing.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Hits on both sides, but isn't especially large.
  • Despite the visual, is not especially tall either.
  • Good for when you're trapped by a cross-combo, as it should hit both the point and assist if you time it right.

You dare pushblock a god?!
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Very high hit stun on counter hit allowing you to link a 5B afterwards

Has some use in conversions for midscreen, but it's mostly use as a safe pressure ender. While this move does move Susanoo far, it's ill-advised to abuse it in neutral due to it's high total frames. As a pushblock bait, it's a potential death sentence for the opponent if they get counter-hit, leading into near 8k meterless.

Dancing Dual Kick
Dancing Dual Kick
BBCF Susanoo DancingDualKick.png
Active Switch Nightmare
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Jump cancellable on hit or block
  • There's a small pause between the slide and the kick that launches, leaving you open to being grabbed if the move was blocked.

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.

BBCF Susanoo Megalith.png
Thanks for blocking this
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Somewhat slow startup, but plus enough on ground to link into 4A afterwards as a true blockstring.
  • On block, 5BB > Megalith will trade with many 5As, and the hitstun is high enough that you can convert that into a combo.

With the ability to link into 5BB, this is a staple combo tool for corner combos due to it's high damage and serviceable scaling. While it's frame advantage is impressive, it can be mitigated easily by pushblock.

Inevitable Calamity
Inevitable Calamity
BBCF Susanoo InevitableCalamity.png
You think my roundstart is tail?
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Hold for additional hits
  • Deletes projectiles but does not possess projectile invulnerability.
  • Very strong against armored moves since each hit is unscaled
  • Incredibly fast special that can work both as a counter poke tool and a situational anti-zoning tool.

Extra Skills

Blade of Judgement
Blade of Judgement
BBCF Susanoo BladeOfJudgement.png
"Yes, hi, I'm looking for Extra Damage. Yes, I'll hold."
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Reaches about half-screen

Leads to high damage in the corner. Unfortunately it no longer wall bounces on counter hit, so its reward in neutral is limited. However, you can link into Liberating Dagger afterwards if you need to finish off someone.

Splintering Thrust

Pay 1 meter to coin flip on who's dying today.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • 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, certain teams can abuse this move to create unblockable situations. Unlike 236B unblockable setups, 214C unblockable setups has the benefit of being unburstable.

Partner Skills

Looks to go farther than most 5P's.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Travels decently far forward
  • Second attack is only performed on hit.

BBCF Susanoo 6A.png
Sit down.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Comes out quick, hits from full-screen
  • Not much blockstun
  • Will hit through block to strike assists behind the opponent

Susano'o's main space control assist. Being a hitscan, it's far less active than regular projectiles, making it easy to avoid by jumping. The trade off is that it's instantaneous nature allows full screen pressure and full screen conversions via 6P -> Cross Combo -> 6P again. Additionally, 6P has the most blockstun out of Susano'o's assists.

BBTag Susanoo 4P.png
You should've sat down.
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Lv2 Hunter's Fang's Pillar

Insanely tall anti air assist that hits as high as you think it does. However, 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.

Distortion Skills

Liberating Dagger
Liberating Dagger

"You sure you wanna throw that projectile?"
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • (ALMOST) Full-screen reach
  • Pops the opponent up on mid-air hit
  • Minimum Damage: 1705 (Resonance: 2020)

If you hit an airborne opponent with this (if they're high enough) you can actually combo after. This also somewhat difficult to punish on block depending on the distance so you may get away with it more than you expect.

Into the trash with thee, THOT! BOOMSHAKALAKA!
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Single-target super (2110 minimum damage, 2307 in resonance)

Mostly used to finish off a character due to it's excellent minimum damage scaling. Severely punishable on whiff and block.
