Famous not only for his huge sword but also an elongated intro quote, where he tells the opponent their end is nigh, Hakumen has always been a popular-yet-niche character. He stands out with a different resource system and the inability to run. Instead, Hakumen players (theoretically) should apply patience and wait for the right chance to counter.
Hakumen received some welcome changes in the 2.0 version of BlazBlue: Central Fiction, as his combos have more flexibility now. The options from his Drive have greatly expanded. All in all, Hakumen remains a powerhouse. The damage goes up very fast as long as you pool some resources into it. The combo video takes you from the shorter, less resource-intensive combos to learning how to inflict misery on your friends on foes. And watch your head! All he needs in the corner is to hit you with the stomp overhead, 6B, to deal over 7000 damage. What a character!
