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 high-low-mixup and okizeme options to punish bad blocking. 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 pseudo-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.

His Drive is Ouroboros, named after his Event Weapon and allows him to fire a metal-snake-head attached to a spatial chain that acts akin to a projectile, allowing him to input followups to make him zip to the grappling point (even if it whiffs). However, all its followups save for the A version (which pulls the chain back quickly) will expend an Ouroboros counter, preventing Hazama from abusing it willy-nilly, and must be recharged without performing any followups for a set amount of time while on the ground. However, chains fired each have a "deadzone" hitbox when fired too close in the foe's face or when at a certain distance will make them do less damage and hitstun. Furthermore, B/C/D followups will cause Hazama's travel path to be different depending on the point at which they are inputted during the chains' respective flight paths, which requires some mastery to handle.

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 Fang Rising Leg (牙昇脚 Gashōkyaku, localized as 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 Snake’s Heaven Crumbling Wing (蛇翼崩天刃 Jayoku Hōtenjin, localized as 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 Drive inputs.

Despite this generally well-rounded playstyle however, Hazama’s slow walking speed and short air-dash-distance makes it difficult for him to catch characters fast enough to consistently get out of the reach of his Drive chains and throw out projectiles from a safe distance (as the said chains can be rather linear-plus-committal at best). 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). Even then, his mixup options often require meter to either cancel into a Distortion Drive or with a Rapid Cancel in order to convert them into further damage, as well as having only very few mid-ranged pokes such as his 3C and j.B.

In BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II, Hazama gained several drastic changes that made him much less beginner-friendly. His normal bread and butter combos involving Tracing Fang (残影牙 Zan'eiga, localized as 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. Though in Extend, he seems to have lost most of his damage potential from the past two games, but even then this is backed up by a discovered loop that works in all versions of Continuum Shift that has been removed in later games.

His Overdrive is the Jörmungandr (ヨルムンガンド Yorumungando), it enables Hazama to not only rid himself of his chains’ aforementioned deadzones, but it also grants him his infamous life-stealing aura from his Unlimited Form.

In BlazBlue: Centralfiction, Hazama has two new moves, Snake Corpse (蛇骸 Jagai, localized as Vengeful Viper) and Dark Swift Snake (蛇冥迅 Jameijin, localized as Shadow Serpent), which replaces Flying Sickle Thrust. The former option works as a solid offensive converter into his unique stance and its followups.

Command list[]

Basic moves[]

Input Damage Heat gain
A 300 124
BBCS (Hazama 5A) A standing “door knock” hand attack forward.
Run-of-the-mill standing poke, and works as a decent anti-air due to Hazama’s standing height. Neutral frame-advantage can allow for solid tick throws, though it can easily be crouched under during pressure.
Cancels into itself three times before the chain resets.
Jump cancelable.
Input Damage Heat gain
B 550 227
BBCS (Hazama 5B) A knee strike.
Short-range staple combo starter. Despite its short range in comparison to most of the 5B’s of the cast, this has quite a notable frame advantage, making it a very good pressure tool for frame traps.
Jump cancelable, that is until BlazBlue: Chronophantasma.
Air unblockable.
Input Damage Heat gain
C 300x2 124x2
BBCS (Hazama 5C) Upward outward cross slash with both knives. Hits twice.
Jump cancelable.
Decent AA hitbox and often good for OTG pickups, and can also be used for pressure. Be wary of its short horizontal range however, as well as its frame disadvantage if not cancelled out of.
Air unblockable.
Input Damage Heat gain
2A 300 124
BBCS (Hazama 2A) A crouching jab with open hand.
Run-of-the-mill-crouching poke. Tends to come out a bit faster than the other 2A’s of the cast, and easily makes it very strong in pressure and frame traps of all sorts a la its priority due to how fast the hitbox comes out.
Can cancel into itself three times before the input chain resets.
Input Damage Heat gain
2B 450 186
BBCS (Hazama 2B) A crouching turning poke kick sweep.
Hits low. Decent poke that comes out fast and recovers fast, though it tends to have the least range out of Hazama’s main footsie tools.
Combos into 3C on crouching opponents or on CH.
Can cause Hazama’s hurtbox to shrink, enabling some timely invincibility via dodging certain moves to beat them out.
Input Damage Heat gain
2C 660 273
BBCS (Hazama 2C) Upward turning slash with knife that creates a brief flash.
Upper-body invulnerable. Launches on counter hi and jump cancellable (usually the source of his Hirentotsu loops in every version of CS).
Combos well into 4D on airborne opponents. However, should be used sporadically due to its weakpoint at horizontal range (and thus it can be baited or can miss if the opponent is pushed too far during hitstun), though it is good to use during pressure.
Input Damage Heat gain
6A 600 248
BBCS Hazama 6A Standing leaning-forward elbow drop. Hits overhead.
Forces crouch on ground hit or untechable knockdown on air hit.
Slow startup and short range.
Breaks one primer on block in the Continuum Shift games.
Cannot chain-combo into it due to its startup (and even off of 5A or 2A it's mainly a 50/50 with a clear gap to mash out of).
You’ll usually need some meter in order to make use of this in combos as it cannot cancel into anything on hit, either into a super or with a Rapid Cancel. However, you can also link it from a counter hit or air hit.
Chronophantasma onwards gives it 110% bonus proration, making it a solid hit confirm if stuck into a combo just right.
Input Damage Heat gain
6B 600 248
BBCS (Hazama 6B) Slow standing sweep kick to the background while Hazama pockets both hands.
Hits low.
Quite safe when blocked, where it has very solid frame advantage for pressure strings, but its slow startup can easily be punished if used recklessly while also making it near impossible to chain-combo into.
Can be canceled into super or Rapid Cancel only.
Breaks one primer on block. No longer breaks a primer in BBCS:EX.
BBCP: Can now Fatal Counter and causes stagger/crumple if so.
Input Damage Heat gain
6C 500x3 310x3
BBCS (Hazama 6C) Jumps back in a face-away turn while flinging three knives diagonally forward to the ground.
Good range and relatively safe, though is mainly used as a combo tool mid-combo due to lack of moves that can chain into it correctly. Though due to how far Hazama leaps back, it can be used to create some space.
Breaks one primer on block in Continuum Shift.
Staggers on counter hit, and causes a hard untechable knockdown on air hit making it a prime tool for setting up OTG combos.
In Chronophantasma, this move can no longer pin the opponent to the ground on air hit.
Cause ground bounce on hit and can cancel into any Drive moves in CP 2.0/Extend.
Input Damage Heat gain
3C 700 289
BBCS (Hazama 3C) Sweeping inward slash with knife.
Hits low.
Knocks down the opponent, and very good for space control.
Combos well into Devouring Fang and 2B. No longer possible to do so in BBCS:II or BBCS:EX, unless it is a counter.
Good poke range, and one of Hazama’s only footsie tools. Due to being a low-aimed attack to the ground, some characters can find a way around it with proper positioning (such as with a low-invulnerable footsie tool).
Input Damage Heat gain
A (in the air) 300 124
BBCS (Hazama jA) A jumping open hand jab. Same as 2A, but only more downward.
Run-of-the-mill jumping poke.
Cancels into itself. Mainly used to check certain aerial approaches.
Input Damage Heat gain
B (in the air) 450 186
BBCS (Hazama jB) A jumping straight kick as he grabs his hat with a second motion where he brings his leg inward in a spin kick motion.
A good jumping poke with decent range, but not that good for jump-ins due to its upward hitbox. Has a slight crossup hitbox on the second portion of the attack.
Has quite a bit of untech time.
Input Damage Heat gain
C (x5) (in the air) 600 (1st Hit), 300 (2nd/3rd/4th Hit), 700 (5th Hit) 248 (1st Hit), 124 (2nd/3rd/4th Hit), 289 (5th Hit)
BBCS (Hazama jC1)
BBCS (Hazama jC2)
BBCS (Hazama jC3)
BBCS (Hazama jC4)
BBCS (Hazama jC5)
Barrage of up to five rapid knife slashes while turning in multiple directions.
Can be mashed for up to five hits.
All hits are jump cancelable. No longer possible since BBCSII. Only the first 2 hits are jump cancelable.
Last hit has bonus positive proration.
Builds a lot of meter rapidly.
CP: The meter gain on each hit has been lessened greatly, even though this move is still great for combos. It also does not float the opponent as high, so it can be possible to spam this move for a few repetitions during air-juggle combos.
CP 2.0/Extend: 5th hit has more knockback.
Input Damage Heat gain
2C (in the air) 620 256
BBCS (Hazama j2C move) Turning slash directly beneath.
Has some startup.
Has very good crossup hitbox, and can also be used for jump-in pressure.


Input Damage Heat gain
BC 0, 1400 0, 579
BBCS (Hazama Foward Throw) Kicks the opponent and sends them flying at an angle.

Combos into 6D. No longer true in BBCS:EX. In BBCS:EX, it can be canceled by Serpent’s Benediction or Hungry Coils. Possible to cancel into Hōtenjin before opponent is knocked away. Possible in BBCS (not BBCS:II) and BBCS:EX.
CP 2.0/Extend: Does less knockback, allowing for more followups.

Input Damage Heat gain
4BC 0, 1800 0, 745
BBCS (Hazama Back Throw) Kicks the opponent backwards and sends them flying straight back.

Combos into 5D on most opponents. No longer true in BBCSII. In BBCS:EX, it can be canceled by Serpent’s Benediction or Hungry Coils.
Possible to cancel into Hōtenjin before opponent is knocked away. Possible in BBCS (not BBCS:II) and BBCS:EX.
In BBCP, this can wallbounce in the corner.

Input Damage Heat gain
(in the air)
0, 1400 0, 579
BBCS (Hazama Air Throw) Grabs the opponent, then smacks him down with his elbow. Sends the opponent straight down.
Combos into j.2D, or 2B if done low enough.
In BBCS:II or BBCS:EX, enemy bounces when they hit the ground allowing you to follow up with Devouring Fang. You may have to dash forward if you are high in the air.
Of course, doing this low enough to the ground regardless enables a majority of quick ground moves to start a nice ground combo (such as a low-altitude air throw into a Jayoku Hōtenjin when there’s enough meter as soon as Hazama lands).
Bounces opponent higher in CP 2.0/Extend.

Counter Assault[]

Input Damage Heat gain
6AB 0 0
BBCS (Hazama 5B) Counter Assault. Same as his 5B, thus unlike more further reaching Counter Assaults, its low range means it must be used a bit sparingly.

Crush Trigger[]

Input Damage Heat gain
Hazama (Sprite, Crush Trigger)


Input Japanese name English name Damage Heat gain
any direction + D ウロボロス Uroborosu Ouroboros -- --
Launches a snake-like chain.
Has a minimum range; chain has minimal stun inside this range.
Ouroboros stocks are consumed by performing chain followups.
Chains will clash with attacks and projectiles.
Chains are special-cancelable on hit or block.
Has projectile properties but will freeze Hazama if the hook touch Hakumen’s Yukikaze.
It should be noted each chain move has a “deadzone” where at a certain distance or when fired too close, it will do less damage and hitstun, so one needs to be mindful of this aspect when going for sequences of D attacks.
The Ouroboros counter is instead changed into a gauge in Chronophantasma 2.0/Extend, and 1 stock is refilled when a chain connects on hit.
In Centralfiction, Ouroboros has returned to a 2 Stock Counter that does not gain charges on block.
Special cancelling hit or blocked chains does not consume a charge. This can be done when chains hit guard points as well. This includes Ignis and Nirvana.

Input Japanese name English name Damage Heat gain
A/B/C/D (during Ouroboros) ウロボロス各種派生行動 Uroborosu Kakushu Hasei Kōdō Ouroboros All-Kind Deriving Action -- --
Followup actions during that consume Ouroboros stocks, in which Ouroboros does not need to connect with anything in order to input. Stocks are fully recharged by staying on the ground for a certain duration or if the opponent is hit by or blocks a chain.
The Ouroboros counter is instead changed into a gauge in Chronophantasma 2.0/Extend, and 1 stock is refilled when a chain connects on hit.
Input Damage Heat gain
A (during any Drive attack) -- --
BBCS (Hazama AFollowup) Hazama retracts the chain. Immediately cancels and retract the chain.
Good for canceling whiffed or blocked chains.
Possible to link multiple chains by canceling them on hit.
Does not consume an Ouroboros stock.
Input Damage Heat gain
B (during any Drive attack) -- --
BBCS (Hazama BFollowup) Hazama pulls himself up from his current position, then pulls himself in towards the grapple point. Momentum is stopped upon reaching the grapple point. In BBCSII, the momentum remains and in BBCS:EX, it is easier to cancel from the movement into an attack or another Drive.
Consumes one Ouroboros stock.
Input Damage Heat gain
C (during any Drive attack) -- --
BBCS (Hazama CFollowup) Hazama is suspended in place for a second, then pulls himself slightly beyond the grapple point. Momentum is stopped upon reaching the grapple point.
Can cross through opponent.
Good for crossups.
Consumes one Ouroboros stock.
Input Damage Heat gain
D (during any Drive attack) -- --
BBCS (Hazama DFollowup) Hazama immediately pulls himself straight towards the grapple point. Unlike B and C followups, retains momentum.
Momentum can be canceled partially by performing a normal.
Consumes one Ouroboros stock.


Input Japanese name English name Damage Heat gain
ヨルムンガンド Yorumungando Jörmungandr --- ---
Releases the limiter on his chains, thus increasing the strength of Drive to erase their “deadzones” and also temporarily gains the Life Drain aura from his Unlimited form. This aura can also drain health at anytime such as during his Orochi Burensō animation or massive frames of hitstop on certain counter hits.

Exceed Accel[]

Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
(during Overdrive)
冥蛇月光牙 Meija Gekkōga Moonlight Fang of the Dark Snake Glimmering Fang of the Basilisk ~2200
~3800 (Active Flow)
BBCF Hazama Glimmering Fang of the Basilisk New move in Centralfiction. Hazama first performs an outward knife slash forward (based on both his and Terumi's throw escape animation); upon connecting, he then hits them up with Rising Fang, on then using Hungry Coils to grab them with Ouroboros and slamming them into the ground, finishing with an upward hooking slash that launches them away with a snake of darkness trailing his slash. The Active Flow version instead has him add in his 5B and the kick from his forward throw before performing the Rising Fang; the final slash finishes with a dark energy pillar of snakes coiling around it (akin to the Overdrive version of Jayoku Hōtenjin), making it resemble a caduceus.

Special moves[]

Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
CS: 236D
CP: EX 236A
蛇刃牙 Jabaki Snake Fang Blade Venom Sword 450 186
BBCS (Hazama jabaki) Steps forward and flings his hand upward to toss forward an energy “sword” in the form of paired-crossing-snake heads. Staple short-range projectile poke and combo finisher.
Wallbounces on counter hit. In BBCSII and BBCS:EX, it causes wallbounce mid-combo.
Links into Jayoku Hōtenjin in corner on counterhit.
BlazBlue: Chronophantasma: No longer knocks down on grounded hit even in mid combo, and only knocks down on air hit (and from there causes a wallbounce if close to the corner).
Chronophantasma 2.0/Extend: Command changed from 236D to 236A. Can perform Jasetsu right afterwards as a followup input when Jabaki successfully lands.

No longer Wall Bounces in Central Fiction, and on counter hit can be followed up with a quick airborne 6D.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
214B 蛇骸 Jagai Snake Corpse Vengeful Viper
Hazama (Sprite, 214B) New move in Centralfiction. Hazama swipe-slashes with dark snake energy inward to his side with his leading hand, which puts him straight into his Serpent’s Benediction afterwards. All Serpent’s Benediction follow ups can be used after this.
Good wake-up pressure tool that hits OTG. Can catch rolls as a solid tech-chase tool and allows for a safe-and-damaging transition into his Jasetsu-based setups for better combo potential and/or mixup, but at the cost of possibly furthering proration whenever Vengeful Viper connects beforehand. Though to circumvent this, it’s possible to simply perform Vengeful Viper out in the open (without having it hit) as a form of bait (into a free Jasetsu-followup), especially on wake up.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
214D 蛇刹 Jasetsu Snake Temple Serpent’s Benediction -- --
BBCS (Hazama jasetsu) Enters a stance while gathering energy on one of his arms. Followups after it can only be done after 7 frames upon entering the stance.
After 25 frames/2 seconds within the stance, followup attacks become “charged” and are identifiable by blue after-trail.
Can be canceled with A, B, C, or D, or ends automatically after a set duration.
BBCP: Charged follow ups are now instead available after 51 frames, and now give Hazama a green after-trail aura instead of a blue one.
Charges faster in CP 2.0/Extend.

In Central Fiction, you are now forced to charge before you can use any of the followup inputs, which forces this to be very risky out in the open. Canceling the stance and The Serpent’s Unholy Wrath are still available pre-charge. This restriction does not apply to Vengeful Viper follow-ups.

Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
A (during Serpent’s Benediction) 裂閃牙 Ressenga Rending Flash Fang Falling Fang 700 (Normal), 900 (S) 434 (Normal), 538 (S)
BBCS (Hazama ressenga) Overhead turning agile “claw slash” slamming attack with snake energy trailing. Hits overhead and goes over low attacks while avoiding throws via airborne state (but can easily be beaten by reversals and mid attacks).
Charged version becomes airborne faster, has lower-body invulnerability, and has higher attack level and damage while inflicting hard knockdown.
Uncharged version advantageous on block (+2). Charged version extremely advantageous on block (+8). In BBCS:EX, charged version breaks guard primer on block. It can also ground bounce on air hit.
Mainly used as either a hit confirm mixup tool, or usually for wakeup pressure.
In BBCP:EX, it now does normal knockdown on hit with increased start-up, with the charged version causing ground bounce.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
B (during Serpent’s Benediction) 牙昇脚 Gashōkyaku Fang Rising Leg Rising Fang 700 (Normal), 1000 (S) 579 (Normal), 828 (S)
BBCS (Hazama gashoukyaku) Outward crescent kick that moves backward via a hidden blade that sticks out on Hazama’s leading leg (and once again is trailed by snake energy). Invulnerable startup and is Hazama’s only invincible rising anti-air though has some tight execution making not as suitable for instant reaction (especially since Serpent’s Benediction itself has some startup delay, and followups can’t be used until 7 frames have passed).
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.
BlazBlue: Chronophantasma: Now launches straight upward, enabling Hazama to convert this into many of his j.C loops (and the charged version now does multiple hits). Can perform during Jakatsu’s animation to make Hazama rise a bit up and forward instead of backward (but at the cost it loses its Fatal Counter property). The float effect is higher in CP: EX/2.0.
In CF, it can be used on opponents trying to jump away if transitioned into from Vengeful Viper. Regardless, the move overall is also very easy to punish if blocked and/or whiffed.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
C (during Serpent’s Benediction) 残影牙 Zan'eiga Tracing Fang Devouring Fang 1000 (Normal), 1200 (S) 621 (Normal), 745 (S)
BBCS (Hazama zaneiga) Hazama twirls his knife behind himself, then sends a curving wave of snake-like energy along the ground with an inward-scooping knife slash. Hits low.
Breaks one guard primer on block.
Launches and vacuums the opponent on hit. Tends to be slow on startup, but it’s very powerful for mixup, especially if spaced properly.
Charged version deals additional damage and has higher attack level, as well as having better proration for combos (though it has repeat proration).
In BBCSII, the opponent is wildly flung instead with a higher launch effect, messing up some previous combo timings, though the move still has its pulling effect (this only applies to the charged version).
Comes out much faster in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma.
BBCP:EX: Causes stagger/crumple on normal hit, and has decreased start-up time.
Has several frames of body invulnerability in Central Fiction. Can still be hit by projectiles and can easily lose to lows and throws during startup.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
D (during Serpent’s Benediction) 構え中断 Kamae Chūdan Stance Break Serpent’s Haste -- --
Cancels Serpent’s Benediction/Jasetsu. Has some recovery. Often a wise choice to consider if your opponent will predict your actions or if you’ve been pushed too far out of range (which may cause the followups to whiff).
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
44 or
66 (during Serpent’s Benediction)
蛇滑 Jakatsu Snake Slide Serpent’s Redemption -- --
BBCP Hazama Serpent's Redemption New additional move in CP. During Jasetsu, 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.
The forward version can be used indefinitely to extend Jasetsu’s time.
Backwards version for follow up inputs is used as a feint and frame-trap gimmick, and also enables enough time for his other followups to be charged up on time, all while he can reposition himself favorably during his stance, but if left alone it will automatically cancel his stance.
Both versions however, if not cancelled into anything, tend to have a bit of recovery compared to Hazama’s forward and backward dash.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
214B (in the air) 飛鎌突 Hirentotsu Flying Sickle Thrust Wind Serpent’s Fang 700 579
BBCS (Hazama hirentotsu) Aerial-tumbling-backward heel swinging spin kick aimed downward with an energy snake trailing it. Breaks one guard primer on block.
Knocks opponent to the ground while moving Hazama a bit forward, which acts as his primary air combo finisher.
In all versions of Continuum Shift, it can be used along with 5C and 2C in order to create some kind of loop via Tiger Knee-style input (due to the fact that it causes untechable knockdown on hit). It is: 5C, 2C, j.214B. Repeat. The input: 5C, 2C, 21478B. Harder than it looks/sounds since the jump cancel may overlap with the Hirentotsu input. You must delay 5C properly in order to pick up properly.
Can be TK’d/Tiger Knee’d, but also can only be done once per air time and disables all other air actions until Hazama lands (and also has some landing recovery). It also somewhat halts his aerial momentum as it’s executed.
BlazBlue: Chronophantasma: The loop as seen in Extend no longer seems to work, since the opponent may be able to recover sooner.
CP 2.0/Extend: Opponent can now recover via emergency tech upon hitting the ground.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
214B (in the air) 蛇冥迅 Jameijin Dark Swift Snake Shadow Serpent
Hazama (Sprite, j214B) New move in Centralfiction that replaces Wind Serpent’s Fang/Hirentotsu. Hazama flips forward to put his leg straight out (with the heel knife revealed) and drops down at a fast-speed while holding onto his fedora, all as afterimages trail him. Hazama recovers in a slight teeter forward as he regains balance.
A solid aerial momentum shifter since it causes Hazama to fly straight down, though it can easily lose to other moves that trade with it due to how big Hazama’s actual hurtbox is during the move. Like the prior Hirentotsu, it serves mainly as an air combo finisher, but sees not as much use other than converting rogue midair hits.
Ground bounces on counter hit. Ground confirms can be combo’d off of if the combo isn’t too deteriorated.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
236C 牙砕衝 Gasaishō Fang Smash Bloody Fangs CS: 0
CF: 600
BBCS (Hazama gasaishou) Red aura surrounds Hazama, who then grabs the opponent with his twirling knife via his leading hand and shreds them once (as he then puts away his knife), thus stunning them into a guard crush animation (missing with it causes him to immediately use his shred animation). Command throw.
Leaves opponent standing in hitstun via the aforementioned guard crush animation.
Prorates heavily while inflicting no damage and has a short amount of range, though it reaches a bit more further than his normal throw, and can be used for ambiguous resets.
In BBCSII, it gives 5 heat.
Invulnerable throughout latter half of move.
In BBCS:EX, invulnerability is moved to the beginning of the move.

In CF, it now inflicts damage and it instead launches the opponent into the air directly in front, allowing this to be a solid combo starter. However, one must still be mindful of the proration values enforced from following up.
Input Japanese name English name English localization Damage Heat gain
623D 蛇咬 Jakō Snake Bite Hungry Coils 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, especially if baited and if the opponent is still grounded. Regardless, using this as an anti-air is still risky due to its specific range.
BBCP: Can now Fatal Counter, but the wallbounce on this move is shortened to where Hazama has to be even closer in the corner to follow it up. Otherwise, it will inflict a fairly far ground slide instead.

236236B 蛇翼崩天刃 Jayoku Hōtenjin Snake’s Heaven Crumbling Wing Serpent’s Infernal Rapture 2500 0
BBCS (Hazama Jayoku Houtenjin) Hazama disappears offscreen via an afterimage warp as he crosses his arms in a pose, then kicks the opponent sky-high with a darkness-energy pillar that reaches up to the heavens. Can Fatal Counter.
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, and its Fatal Counter property can lead to a majority of Hazama’s infamous Jayoku-based combos despite not doing any extra bonus damage on counter hit.
6 frames of startup before superflash, hits on same frame as superflash. Quite laggy when blocked, so it can only be used in combos or punishing attacks.

Furthermore, despite its properties, it only goes a set distance as Hazama does not warp full-screen, so the opponent if pushed outside of a certain range can have this move whiff quite horribly as the range is fairly short.

Not to mention it’s already notable for its low P1 rating, so combos after this move normally don’t offer much reward without a Fatal Counter hit. It is also severely affected by a unique form of self-proration if comboed into off of anything, halving its base damage output.

BlazBlue: Chronophantasma: No longer Fatal Counters, though the move hasn’t changed that much. In Overdrive, a brief coiling of dual-green-darkness-snakes flashes around the darkness pillar, making it resemble a caduceus.

In Central Fiction, it now has lost all prior invulnerability frames. Can still trade as it can still Fatal Counter, which is usually in Hazama’s favor. Regardless, this means it is much easier to punish now.

632146C 蛟竜烈華斬 Mizuchi Rekkazan Violent Gorgeous Slash of the Rain Dragon Eternal Coils of the Dragon Serpent 200, 0, 500x8, 3200 0
BBCS (Hazama Mizuchi Rekkazan) Summons a portal that snares the opponent, pulls/hooks them in with Ouroboros for a barrage of wild-rapid slashes, then summons darkness 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, so using it too close to the opponent can result in a whiff that’s bound to be punished.
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.

Chronophantsama: No longer hits low, thus it can be blocked in anyway possible. The new Overdrive version has Hazama turn into his real Terumi form after a few extra slashes, locking the opponent into a small binding barrier as they fly through the air very slowly. As the darkness serpents emerge, Hazama then finishes with a upward kick with his following leg, then push-kicks down with his leading leg to send the serpents down at once, causing wallbounce. Hazama then puts back on his hat and chuckles to himself. This overall leads to even more overall damage added with his life-steal aura.

632146D (during Serpent’s Benediction) 大蛇武錬葬 Orochi Burensō Serpent’s Martial Tempering Burial The Serpent’s Unholy Wrath -- --
BBCP Hazama The Serpent's Unholy Wrath New DD as of BlazBlue: Chronophantasma. Dashes forward to grab his target during his Jasetsu stance. Upon connecting, 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.
However, during some circumstances, it’s possible to throw break this move, so it often must be setup well enough to ensure the opponent does not expect it.
Can be RC’d from the second hit onward.
The Overdrive version causes Hazama to stomp on the opponent a few extra times, before grinding his foot onto their head while bantering at them before the finisher.

In Centralfiction, this Distortion Drive’s damage does not change between the stance charge.

1632143D 千魂冥烙 Senkon Meiraku Dark Burning of Thousand Souls Hungry Darkness of 1000 Souls 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.
