Bang Shishigami unlike most “speedster/ninja”-type characters, has both the modest amount of HP and moderate damage on his moves to subvert his archetype, making sure he can at least make a few more mistakes than others and allowing him to output solid damage in combos. Furthermore, many of his attacks tend to work as great pokes which give him solid control in the neutral, along with having the stereotypical ninja-esque mobility tools such as double air dashes and other moves such as a float that save his air options (as of Chronophantasma).

On top of having decent mixups (such as his 5C being one of the few non-command normals to be an overhead, along with a low in the form of 6A and another overhead with 6B) and even a cross-up tool in the form of j.4B, he also possesses the most jump-cancelable moves in the game, both on hit and on block to add more to his mobility gimmicks. Much of Bang's basic-bread-and-butters also possess great corner carry potential when converted into full combos, and to further his mixup game, he even possesses solid tick throws (counting a grounded and midair command throw).

His nails are also a viable tool in controlling the match, though they need to be used very wisely in terms of usage as only 12 can be used per round, giving him a limited keep away game. He can also set up bumpers to use as vantage points to boost around the arena to control the match in his favor if he ever needs to be defensive. His Drive, Burning Heart (バーニングハート Bāningu Hāto), is a two-part move: Bang first defends with his gauntlet, which has autoguard/guard point properties. He then attacks with a fiery punch (or kick), which will add one seal to his FRKZ count on hit. When all four seals have been obtained, Bang can activate his Fū-Rin-Ka-Zan super. Bang’s Drives will still function as normal once he has obtained all four seals, although he derives no special benefit for doing so.

Regardless, his weaknesses lie in the fact that he barely has any-viable anti-airs (his 6C comes out too slow and his 5D and 2D also are hampered by slow startup) with no meterless reversals or any head-level-invulnerability attacks. His combos are also rather execution heavy while also lacking further damage potential without meter to expend if landed midscreen, and his Fū-Rin-Ka-Zan mode + bumper dashes can cause control issues due to mobility increases. Added with his rather committal attacks, some of his blockstring pressure can be quite easy to reverse out of if one isn't creative enough with it due to how linear some of his actual mixup routes tend to be.

He is also probably the most changed character in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. While he retains the same emphasis on rushdown and mobility, he now actually has the tools to maintain this rushdown effectively. His moves are safer and have more priority across the board, his combos hit harder and set up for better okizeme, and he is able to acquire all the seals needed for his Fū-Rin-Ka-Zan super almost immediately if necessary. In a complete tier reversal, Bang has moved from bottom tier in Calamity Trigger to top tier in Continuum Shift, and is much more accessible to beginner players all around.

In BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II Bang received many significant nerfs to go with the new system. His wallbounce combos are gone, and much of the priorities on many of his moves were horrifically reduced. In addition, Fū-Rin-Ka-Zan received several nerfs, including a reduced range on his backdash, and significant combo reworking. Bang must now rely heavily on nails and bumpers, as well as getting seals in order to be effective in battle.

As of Extend, Bang was buffed once again. Now he has become a perfect balance of his BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift selves. His 5A gained its priority back, and his overall damage has been buffed to somewhere in the middle of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift and II values. Thanks to these, Bang is now a decent character once again.

In BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, Bang has once again received significant changes to go with the new Overdrive system, while still maintaining a focus on rushdown and mixups. By far his biggest change is that Fū-Rin-Ka-Zan is no longer a Distortion Drive, but now his Overdrive, meaning he can only remain in that state for a limited time. To compensate, he has been given new tools which allow him to function better without the use of Fū-Rin-Ka-Zan. In place of Fū-Rin-Ka-Zan, he now has a brand-new command grab super which requires the four seals to be open. His Steel Rain Distortion Drive is now a special move which uses up half of your current nail count. Finally, he has been given a new move similar to Platinum’s Swallow Moon, which allows him to extend air combos, avoid certain attacks, and keep the opponent guessing. In short, Bang has once again been improved while still maintaining balance.

(Ok in midair)
釘設置 Kugi Secchi Nail Setup Set Nail -- (Ground) (Air) -- (Ground) (Air)
BBCS (Bang NailSet)
BBCS (Bang NailSetDiagram)
Bang places a nail “bumper” into the background of the stage. Different buttons set nails at different distances and heights. A bumer: far front, high. B bumper: close front, low. C bumper: directly above, high. D bumper: close behind, low.
Aerial sets differ slightly from ground sets. Height of bumpers are determined relative to Bang’s height in the air. A bumper = forward front, low. B bumper = close front, low. C bumper = directly overhead, low. D bumper = close behind, high.
All bumpers remain set for the rest of the round unless reset.
Setting a bumper with the same button as a previously set bumper will replace the old bumper, causing it to disappear and consuming another nail. Aerial and grounded bumpers are treated as the same button.
All bumpers consume one nail each.
When Bang is on top of a bumper while airborne, he can tap any directional button to perform a high-speed “FRKZ dash” in that direction. Bang cannot bounce off the same bumper twice in one jump.
Good for setting up mixups and pressure strings, but one must be mindful of proper positioning.

22A 裂空ムササビの術 Rekkū Masasabi no Jutsu Rending Air Flying Squirrel Technique Tempest Flying Squirrel Jutsu 0
New move in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma. Deploys the cape he floats with in some of his battle intros (where he attaches the corners to his limbs). Can only be used if none of his air options (air dashes and double jump) have not been used yet. This makes Bang’s hurtbox transparent making him fly through the opponent, and is often a new key to some of his air combo routes.

New DD in Chronophantasma. Bang grabs his foe from behind after warping behind them, then instantly knees them to the wall. He then chases them several times by dashing through them from wall-to-wall via a variety of attacks, then ends the combo by impaling his foe in midair above him with his nail. The Overdrive version has him following up the impale with tossing his nail from above down onto the opponent to nail them to the ground, then landing on them with a punch to hammer the nail into them.
A good move for surprise attacks via punishing the opponent, but most of the time the initial frames give enough time for one to escape with a jump to avoid the attack.

Since BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Bang’s clothes now burn off upon successfully landing this move.

Can teleport off the guard-point, making it useful against projectile characters as another option.
