''Blazen!'' is a ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' fancomic made by Shadow Draygon, a member of the ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' forum Dustloop. It uses [[SpriteComic in-game sprites]] and official artwork, and is a mostly self-contained gag series which takes the characters' most notable traits and [[CharacterExaggeration exaggerates them]] or [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation completely changes them,]] with [[{{Troll}} Hazama]] tending to be the [[SpotlightStealingSquad main]] [[ADayInTheLimelight focus]].

The main page can be found [[http://blazen.thecomicseries.com/ here]], but as a result of having been cancelled for a while, most links on this page are now kind of dead. An archive of the original series of comics can be found [[http://www.mediafire.com/?7aa1v79mhf961n1 here]]. Beware; major ''[=BlazBlue=]'' spoilers end up as regular jokes in the comics.

As of September 11, 2011, the comic was canceled.

And then on March 20, 2013, it was UnCanceled, as the sequel series ''Blazen Again''. For how long, however, remains to be seen.

The new comics may be found [[http://www.dustloop.com/forums/showthread.php?15964-Blazen-Again here]].

On October 9, 2013, ''Blazen!: Anime/BlazBlueAlterMemory Abridged'' was officially confirmed to be in the works. It can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ShadowDraygonTV?feature=watch here]].
----

* ADateWithRosiePalms: Makoto catches Tsubaki in the middle of...[[BrotherSisterIncest some private time]]... and tells Tsubaki that if she keeps it up, [[spoiler:she'll go blind]]. Tsubaki dismisses her, but the next time she gets ready to "have fun"...
* AffectionateParody: [[http://blazen.thecomicseries.com/comics/60/ "BEEEEEEEEES!"]] is a TakeThat at the [=GameSpot=] preview of ''Continuum Shift'', which infamously got Arakune's bio completely wrong.
* AscendedMeme: Creator/CristinaValenzuela, Noel’s voice actor, dubbed one of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epn-fg48i9M comics!]]
* BearsAreBadNews: During Bang and Carl's ninja camping trip, Carl gets kidnapped by Bang's ArchEnemy, the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot "Killer Pirate Cyborg Bear"]]
* BerserkButton: Don't joke about how dead Nine is in front of Jubei.
* [[BashBrothers Boundary Bros.]]: Hakumen and Arakune.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: The comic's version of Litchi.
* BlahBlahBlah: Used to great effect by Terumi in this comic: [[http://blazen.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/55776 "Filler: Extra Arcade Story"]]
* BrickJoke: [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Venom's "Dark Angel" super]] goes through EVERYTHING, a tradition continued from ''Holy Zen!'', one of Shadow Draygon's earlier comics. So far it's come out of Mu-12's cocoon and Take-Mikazuchi.
** To elaborate, an earlier Holy Zen! strip had Venom launch a Dark Angel at Millia; it missed and went on an unstoppable rampage, bulldozing through Sol and Testament playing a TabletopGame (which Testament was about to RageQuit due to Sol's stupidity), and Axl and Potemkin adventuring together, amongst other things.
* TheCameo: Several from ''Holy Zen!'', but Sol stalks Makoto regularly due to his hatred of squirrels.
** The rogue Dark Angel as launched by Venom also makes a couple of cameo appearences.
-->'''Venom''': Where the hell do those Dark Angels keep going?
* CallBack: In "[[http://blazen.thecomicseries.com/comics/109 Sparklicious]]", Platinum the Trinity comments on how LSD is [[Series/ChappellesShow a helluva drug]]. Rachel replying gives the impression that Platinum's talking to her, but it's more likely she's talking to Gii - who was referenced as having an LSD stash in "[[http://blazen.thecomicseries.com/comics/43/ Rachel in Wonderland]]". Gii bowing and blushing in that same panel all but confirms this.
* TheChewToy: [[TheWoobie Noel]], [[ButtMonkey just]]...[[BreakTheCutie Noel]]. Even Shadow Draygon makes fun of her in her character description.
* ComedicSociopathy: The comic in general uses this as its driving source of humor.
* {{Crossover}}: A couple of the newer comics have been crossing over ''BlazBlue'' with ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. And occasionally characters from ''GuiltyGear'' show up from time to time too.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Hazama, Jin, and Litchi, among others.
* GagDub: Occasionally, Shadow Draygon will upload a chapter of a dance-themed translation of the official ''[=BlazBlue=]: Chimelical Complex'' comic.
* GoodTimesMontage: In ''Eligible Bachelor'', Relius recounts his date with Litchi in this style. It begins with dinner and ends with both of them getting intimate at Relius' place. [[spoiler: Of course, since it's ''[[MemeticMolester Relius]]'', "getting intimate" is code-word for "getting experimented on in the sex dungeon".]]
** Hazama then [[SerialEscalation one-ups]] him by recounting the last date he went on. [[spoiler: It was the time he burned down Caelica's church and killed her.]]
* GroinAttack: Bang receives one of the most painful kind...[[spoiler:from a ''mouth'' with ''razored edges.'']]
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Unlike [[TearJerker his situation]] in the actual game, Carl's [[BreakTheCutie traumatic childhood experiences]] and relationship with [[AbusiveParents Relius]] in ''Blazen!'' is PlayedForLaughs more than anything.
** In [[http://blazen.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/66841 "Summer Vacation,"]] the abuse is accidental. This does not stop it from being hilarious.
* HostileShowTakeover: The series begins with Shadow Draygon's previous comic, ''Holy Zen!'', being taken over by the ''[=BlazBlue=]'' cast. [[spoiler:Later, Hazama steals the plot and an army of Robo-Kys take over the comic for a while.]]
** [[spoiler: Blazen! ends the same way once ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' is announced.]]
* [[spoiler: ImAHumanitarian: Litchi.]]
* JerkAss: Who else but Jin "God of Assholes" Kisaragi?
* LiteralSplitPersonality: Without Terumi inhabiting the "Hazama" body, it is kind, well-mannered, helpful, and [[TastesLikeDiabetes overly cheerful.]] [[spoiler: However, it still seems to possess a little bit of trolly goodness, though more indirect: see MushroomSamba below.]]
** AscendedFanon: [[spoiler: The latest side novel, ''Phase Shift 1'', introduces a character called Kazuma who turns out to be Hazama without Terumi inside of him.]]
* LovableSexManiac: Bang "[[InTheNameOfTheMoon By all of Ikaruga]], I must tap that!" Shishigami.
* MushroomSamba: Rachel gets some LSD slipped into her tea [[spoiler:by "Hazama"; that is, Hazama's body without the ghost of Terumi inside it]] and imagines herself in an RPG style universe.
* MythologyGag: The comic as a whole relies a lot on these for most of its jokes. [[spoiler: Such as the example for ADateWithRosiePalms above, for Tsubaki.]]
* PlanetOfHats: The "Awesome Hat Alliance" created by Carl, which deems that only awesome people can wear hats. Anyone who wears a hat and is not considered awesome gets their hat confiscated as a warning. It appears that Hazama, Tsubaki, [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear I-no and Johnny]] have all joined as well.
* PostRapeTaunt: Played for dark humor in one comic between Rachel and Jin (Rachel's the one speaking)
-->''Here's twenty bucks. Go clean yourself up, you crybaby.''
* {{Pun}}: "So your mom and sister left you due to your theatrics? That is a tragedy."
* ShmuckBait: One of the most popular strips has Hazama set up a booth with the sign "Stay Calm For 30 Seconds, Win $10". Needless to say, many, many people try to win the challenge. They all fail. [[spoiler: Jin comes close to succeeding by counter-trolling, but misses the mark by '''one-tenth of a second'''. He did manage to draw Terumi out, though.]]
** [[spoiler: At first it looks like Makoto was the first to beat the game...only to learn that it was not Hazama, but [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Sol Badguy]] in a [[LatexPerfection Hazama mask]]. Due to his hatred of squirrels (another ''Holy Zen!'' reference), he promptly scorches the surrounding area, traps Makoto inside the burning booth, and muzzles Hype Dog.]]
** Hazama's [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} shadow]] has it use the same trick to Hazama ''himself''. It doesn't work, [[CardCarryingVillain due to his nature and all.]]
* ShoutOutToShakespeare: Relius is VERY fond of quoting Shakespeare and theater in general.
** AlasPoorYorick: He practices the lines in his introduction comic.
* TimeTravel: Thanks to a few mishaps with this, two Hazamas come into existence ''at the same time,'' and actually meet with each other. Thank goodness that one was much less of a jerk than the other.
* TrollingCreator: The final comic might as well have been a picture of the author saying "fuck you all, I'm out of here."
* TwinThreesomeFantasy: One of Arakune's goals on the increasingly-large bucket list of his. He accomplishes it.
* VillainProtagonist: Quite often Hazama. Some have said that he may as well be the main character of the comic.
* VisualPun: Hazama's persona is [[GagPenis Mara.]] [[spoiler: He's a huge dick.]]
* WhatDoesThisButtonDo: In [[http://blazen.thecomicseries.com/comics/110 #72: Override]], Terumi invokes this while messing with Relius' new device, which [[spoiler:controls Lambda-11]].
* {{Yandere}}: Nu, moreso than her game counterpart. She'll '''KILL''' anyone who gets in the way of '''HER''' Ragna, and then activate [[DeadlyHug hug.exe]] when near him [[spoiler:(which involves stabbing him through the chest and going deeper and deeper every second)]].
