服部 半蔵, Hattori Hanzō

Introduction

Hanzo is an extremely offensive character who comes equipped with some of the best mixup- and setplay-tools in the entire game.

While his normal slashes are mostly built for close-quarters combat, he can pester the opponent from full screen with his Baku'en Ryuu or throwing star projectiles. Fortunately, Hanzo has nearly unrivaled mobility options which include multiple teleports, blisteringly fast run speed, a wall-jump and a great backdash. His running 66C overhead can cross up which, when coupled with his running slide or 66B and his running command grab, makes his approach extraordinarily powerful.

Once Hanzo has scored that crucial knockdown, things really go from bad to worse for the opponent as he can mix you up between his high- or low-hitting teleport slashes, his aforementioned running crossup or powerful command grabs. Hanzo struggles in the mid range since his anti-airs are rather mediocre and he lacks a good long-range 5C to control space with, so it is recommended you set up your vortex game quickly before falling behind on life.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Excellent mobility
  • Strong grabs
  • Best setplay in the game
  • Needs offensive momentum to be scary
  • Weak presence in the mid-range
  • Low damage outside his setplay

Data

  • Damage Taken: 105%
  • Rage Duration: 18 seconds
