< Hazama

Hazama can be a tricky-to-use character with a unique playstyle. Although his chains and slow speed are well-suited for a zoning character, he excels particularly well up-close, where he can make use of his numerous mixup options and okizeme options. Unlike Hakumen, Carl, and Arakune, his "hop dash" is grounded and can be canceled at any time with normals, specials, or barrier, improving his short-range movement options, even enabling him to wavedash. It should also be noted that Hazama has one of the de facto best meter gain rates in the game, as almost all of his combos go into multiple j.Cs, which builds meter extremely quickly. It is not uncommon for a good Hazama player to always have at least 50% meter, making Serpent's Infernal Rapture a constant threat due to its Fatal Counter property.

Although he is relatively slow compared to most of the cast, Hazama is excellent for applying pressure, as his drives make slow moves that would normally be safe at fullscreen (i.e. Jin's projectiles) extremely risky, forcing opponents to play a close-up game even if their character is unsuited for it (i.e. Rachel). At the same time, however, Hazama can make the opponent's rushdown risky as well, stuffing approaches easily with his drive and his Rising Fang (214D~B) special, which is invulnerable on startup and moves Hazama back enough to be virtually safe, and punishing holes in rushdown extremely hard with Serpent's Infernal Rapture (236236B), which can deal more than 7k damage in the right circumstances. At the same time, Hazama is able to punish opponents for playing overly defensively, poking them safely from a distance with his drives and punishing bad blocking with an extremely strong mixup game consisting of crossups, overheads, and command throws.

Despite this generally well-rounded playstyle, however, Hazama's slow walking speed makes it difficult for him to catch characters fast enough to consistently get out of the reach of his chains and throw out projectiles from a safe distance. He has a comparatively difficult time against Hakumen and Arakune, who are both capable of both negating his mixup game and his approach options by hitting his chains, countering, or air dashing (Hakumen) or onslaughting him with bugs (Arakune).

Also, Hazama can only shoot out one chain at a time, so characters can move in by going around them well enough or negating them with a multitude of projectiles at once. Though it is thanks to his Ouroboros followups that he can escape projectile punishes, though one must not be reckless in which follow ups to use, making it a bit situational. People can also stuff Serpent's Infernal Rapture with an invincible attack or a counter, and run away with enough skill needed since Hazama must get close to his opponent to be efficient. A good runaway game is needed to stay on one's toes against Hazama. Also, if one can keep him in the air, the only tools he has on hand will be the Wind Serpent's Fang (j.214B), his j.C and his Drives. His game works best on ground to start punishment for setups to safely use his aerial tools as he has no midair Distortion Drives.

Ironically, Hazama, unlike most pressure happy characters like Ragna and Jin, lacks the range needed on his normals for long range poke punishes, as his 2B, 3C and j.B are the only pokes he has on his disposal. Thus, Hazama often needs to end up as close to his opponent as much as possible as his normals tend to have notable pushback. One other notable weakness of Hazama's his is lack of meterless reversals; due to this, he can be in a very tight spot when under pressure and due to his average amount of health, and his Drive follow ups despite providing great mobility, provide no invincibility, and must be used rationally.

In Continuum Shift II, Hazama gained several drastic changes that made him much less beginner-friendly. His normal bread and butter combos involving Devouring Fang have been removed, and replaced with complex OTG combos involving his modified 6C, which pins the opponent to the ground now allowing him to dash in and use 5C to start his air juggles. As with every character, Hazama's style was changed to allow for better pressure when the opponent is trapped in the corner.

In Extend, Hazama has gained a powerful, but very difficult new tool to use. Making use of the Tiger Knee input (2369/2147) and the right set of moves in a combo, it is now possible for Hazama to use his Rising and/or Falling Fang in such a way that he can force the opponent into a loop. With this new tactic, Hazama is able to gain exorbitant amounts of meter in the corner while leaving the opponent utterly helpless as he combos into Serpent's Infernal Rapture from the loop for big damage. But at a cost, he seems to have lost most of his damage potential from the past two games.

Of note is that Hazama has a non-standard dash. Instead of running, he will perform a short sliding step forward and stop automatically after a set distance. This dash can be canceled with normals, specials, or barrier block.

Launches on hit.
Charged version Fatal Counters and has higher attack level.
If performed immediately upon activating 214D, there is a 6-frame window between activation and when invulnerability kicks in. In BBCS:EX, it causes wallbounce on corner, enhancing Hazama's combo possibilities. Also, both versions break a guard primer on block.

New additional move in CP. Hazama either dashes forward or backward depending on the direction input.
Followups executed right during the movement period (at the beginning frames) carry on the movement during their animations; for example, Rising Fang moves forward if done right during the forward dash and so forth.
Often used during tight combo executions in order to allow most of the follow ups moves to connect. Backwards version for follow up inputs is used as a feint and frame-trap gimmick.

BBCS (Hazama hirentotsu) Aerial backward heel swinging spin kick aimed downward. Breaks one guard primer on block.
Knocks opponent to the ground.
Good air combo finisher.

623 D Hungry Coils 蛇咬, Jakō Snake Bite 0,2000 0, 828
BBCS (Hazama jakou) Shoots a chain with a small red aura at a 45-degree angle. If the chain connects, it will latch onto the opponent, after which Hazama will swing the chain in the opposite direction forcefully, slamming opponents into the back wall.
Air unblockable as a blockable throw that only hits airborne opponents (but can be barrier blocked).
Particularly effective if used while Hazama himself is in the corner, as doing so will drop the opponent right next to him. Too close however might make the wallbounce occur too soon, messing up some opportunities. Very space dependent for follow up scenarios and is a difficult anti-air to properly use due to some blind-spots.
BBCP: Can now Fatal Counter.

236 236 B Serpent's Infernal Rapture 蛇翼崩天刃, Jayoku Hōtenjin Snake Wing Crumbling Heaven Blade 2500 0
BBCS (Hazama Jayoku Houtenjin) Hazama disappears offscreen via an afterimage warp, then kicks the opponent sky-high with an energy pillar that reaches up to the heavens. Fatal Counters.
Breaks one guard primer on block.
Sends opponent clear off the top of the stage, untechable until opponent touches the ground. Can even hit OTG.
6 frames of startup before superflash, hits on same frame as superflash. Very laggy when blocked, so it can only be used in combos or punishing attacks. Now affected more in terms of damage deterioration in BBCSII, as chaining it from even 1 hit weakens the attack more via forced proration.
BEWARE, if Hazama ends up too close to his foe just before the attack comes out, it can be countered with a throw, so caution and proper spacing should be considered. The attack can also be punished by most long invincibility moves (such as a C Inferno Divider) through the attacking frames as Hazama will always end up close to the opponent, so reckless use of it is not considered during neutral game.

63214 6 C Eternal Coils of the Dragon Serpent 蛟竜烈華斬, Mizuchi Rekkazan Rain Serpent Violent Luster Slash 200,0,500x8,3200 0
BBCS (Hazama Mizuchi Rekkazan) Summons a portal that snares the opponent, pulls them in for a barrage of slashes, then summons serpents to strike the foe away. Portal appears on the ground underneath opponent, and can catch airborne opponents who are low enough to the ground.
Has a minimum range.
Is a blockable throw, despite appearances. Hits low.
A strange bug can happen if used against Hakumen's barrier, causing the 'chain' part of the move to grab at nothing, and Hazama will perform the rest of the move as usual without anything caught in it. Have Hakumen hit an Ouroboros to create the barrier and then have Hazama perform the move, then when the chain comes out, Hakumen will soon be free and move towards Hazama to block or counter the final hit of the attack. His Drives, Yukikaze, and Astral can work on this.

63214 6 D (during Serpent's Benediction) The Serpent's Unholy Wrath 大蛇武錬葬, Orochi Burensō Great Serpent Martial Tempering Burial -- --
New DD as of CP. Hazama removes his hat to reveal his Terumi ego as he lifts his opponent up with Ouroboros in a binding barrier. He then rises up with a knee attack to them and forcibly slams him/her down to the ground with a turning midair kick followed by a heel drop on the downed target, then stomps the opponent several times. He then sweeps them off the ground and finishes with a backward kick trailed by an energy snake.
Unblockable Throw, can only be used near the opponent.
Often used during forward version Jakatsu to ensure connecting. Used during pressure strings.

Astral HeatEdit

1 63214 3 D Hungry Darkness of 1000 Souls 千魂冥烙, Senkon Meiraku Thousand Souls Dark Branding Death 0
BBCS (Hazama Senkon Meiraku) A large amount of Ouroboros chains rise from the ground around Hazama in a cage formation. If they connect, Hazama bursts with energy as several snakes rise up from the ground, coalescing into a giant snake that delivers a fatal bite to the opponent. When the dust settles, Hazama has transitioned into Terumi, standing over his opponent and holding his tie over their lifeless corpse. Completely invulnerable on startup.
Can combo off of 6A.
The motion is the same as Geese Howard's Raging/Raising Storm from the SNK series of games, so the command 63214632143D is a common bypass for such a difficult command.
