Hazama, also known by his extended codename Hazama Honoka (Shadowy Serpent Fang), is a playable character, one of the main antagonists, and according to official sources, he was 5th main character in the BlazBlue series, prior being demoted as one of the secondary antagonists due the first playable appearance of the central antagonist of C Series since BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Yuuki Terumi (The Original Black Void Susano'o Unit or known by his real name, Takehaya Susano'o no Mikoto). Hazama returns as a playable character and antagonist in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle.
The shady head of the N.O.L's intelligence department - jolly, smooth and outgoing to everyone around him, Hazama is in fact a manipulative and scheming individual who seems to have plans and contingencies for almost any situation. He is one of the two vessels (other being Kazuma Kval) created by the fallen Magician Scientist Relius Clover/One for the fallen hero Yuuki Terumi/Susano'o, a vengeful specter god who wants nothing more than to destroy the world itself. Hazama served as Terumi's backup vessel, should Kazuma be killed in the Dark War. Terumi's schemes were responsible for many of the actions which drive the plot of his home series, earning his spot as one of its main antagonists. At some point, Hazama also existed in Bloodedge Experinece universe, yet it is unknown whether this is the same Hazama from prime universe or different one like Relius and one of the Six Heroes Valkenhayn R. Hellsing.
Hazama is equipped with the Nox Nyctores Ouruboros, a pair of butterfly knives which can extend indefinitely and can manipulate the memories of others.
- Hazama has color palettes of the following characters: Axl Low (Guilty Gear), Relius Clover (BlazBlue), Naoto Shirogane, Phonon the Chermeti (UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH), Adam Taurus (RWBY), and Woody (Toy Story).
- Additionally, Blake Belladonna also reminded him of her former love interest turned arch-enemy Adam Taurus according to their victory interactions, as a reference of Hazama having the color palette based on Adam, and both antagonists shared their Japanese voice actors.
- Along with Platinum the Trinity, there is likely a continuity error or an alternate continuity where Cross Tag Battle alternatively takes place, where Terumi is never with Hazama anymore, while Trinity is still inside Platinum.
