** Ragna actually has a lot more in common with Yang: both are older siblings with a history of prioritising others over, and sometimes at the cost of, their own personal well-being. Additionally, both had childhood homes isolated in the woods, Ragna was blond in his youth (before trauma turned his hair white) much like Yang is, their abilities involve their eyes turning red (Ragna's Azure Grimoire has turned his right eye red, while Yang's eyes turn red when she gets angry) and they both um, lose [[AnArmAndALeg something]]. They also rarely open up about themselves and are far more than they appear to be on the surface, but whereas Yang is warm and friendly, deflecting attention away from any inner turmoil where she can, Ragna puts on a JerkassFacade to push people away.

* TheStoic: Es never emotes. Ever. Not only does she speak like a robot but she behaves a lot like one too.

* TheDreaded: In Episode Under-Night, he is the only opponent who Hyde is openly concerned about battling, and even before the fight ends in-story Hyde expresses great frustration with the difficulty of the fight, another first for the Episode. Ultimately, Jubei forfeits the fight on behalf of his team to throw a wrench into System's plans, which explains how he could "lose" despite his opponents being clearly outmatched by him.

* TheUnfought: Played with. After battling him along with Platinum, he notes she can get another try later, which implies he really wasn't putting much into the fight (given how reluctant he was to fight anyway). In Episode Under-Night, after his tag battle the story acts as though he actually stopped the fight mid-way through, and his tag team is the only one who expresses concern about fighting. In both cases, it's shown that nobody actually gets to fight him seriously, which makes sense given he's canonically more powerful than almost everyone except for perhaps Hakumen.

Captured to be used as a weapon by the organization "Sector Seven" whose creed is to improve the world through science, opposing the NOL's creed to improve the world through Ars Magus. Azrael could care less about any of that, though. He lives for one purpose only: the thrill of fighting strong opponents. Feared far and wide as "The Mad Dog", "Deathbringer" and many more, Azrael's physical strength is nigh-impossible to gauge. He is so powerful that without the use of any Ars Magus enhancements he can fight on even ground with some of the strongest beings in the world, such as the Six Heroes. Not helping matters is his extremely violent temperament. Once he gets worked up, he becomes a rampaging beast who will attack anyone in sight, ally and enemy alike. No one is safe when this man decides to "devour" his prey. Because of his insatiable bloodlust, Azrael has purposefully limited his own strength using a seal called "Enchant Dragunov" to give his opponents a fighting chance: by not dying too quickly.

* TheBerserker: Azrael is a [[TheJuggernaut juggernaut]] of a BloodKnight, and as shown in Episode UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH, System is unable to restrain him from violating the tag-team-only rule, failing to stop him from attacking Weiss who herself cannot fight back because of the rule. That's right, [[MightMakesRight Azrael is so strong that he can screw the rules]]!
* BloodKnight: His intro has him saying he'd rather be by himself taking on the other three.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Hard to tell if it's {{innocent innuendo}}, given his violence is physical rather than sexual, but in his post-combat commentary with Chie, he talks about how well she "tenderized the meat". Chie wants nothing more to do with him afterwards.

* UnskilledButStrong: His fighting style has no technique, and relies solely on throwing his power around. While some things he says and does seem to suggest he could easily apply the skill to supplement that strength, with that much power it's practically unneeded in most situations and would probably make things less fun for him.

In Story [=UNIEL=], she ends up meeting fellow Lethal Chef Yukiko [[spoiler:and it turns out ''Noel is the worse chef of the two''.

* BastardUnderstudy: As of ''Centralfiction'' when both Hazama and Terumi get to interact with each other more directly in-story, it would seem Hazama is starting to take the reigns of being his own character different from Terumi since both of them would've been considered to be the same person but with different egos and/or playing the alias game (again to mention, Hazama is merely a vessel for a disembodied Terumi). Not to mention Hazama himself has said to Terumi in ''Centralfiction''[='=]s story mode that he doesn't want to fuse with Terumi anymore.
** In here, it also seems to show that like in ''Centralfiction'' gameplay-wise, Terumi isn't actually inhabiting Hazama this time around despite the fact Hazama mimics his appearance during the Resonance Blaze version of his Mizuchi Rekkazan/Eternal Coils of the Dragon Serpent Distortion Skill (a trait also present in ''Centralfiction''); Hazama even maintains his affable persona via his dialogue during the said move.

* EnemyMine: With pretty much most of the cast, since he's one of the main antagonists of ''[=BlazBlue=]'' (well, the container of one of them that is), and he can easily be paired with Ragna or Noel (among others). In Episode [=BlazBlue=], he teams up with Ragna against Weiss and Orie.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Usually. When they're open it usually means that Terumi has taken over. Strangely enough, this game is the first time Hazama's character select art has an open eye visible.

* OnlyOneName: Despite just being called "Hazama", he somewhat subverts this in one ''[=BlazBlue=]'' light novel has him refer to himself as "Captain Honoka", which implies his full name is "Hazama Honoka".
* {{Sadist}}: Hazama's only real desire is to understand pain, due to [[spoiler: being an ArtificialHuman, Trinity stabbing him was the first time he felt anything]]. Unfortunately, due to his personality being somewhat based on Terumi's (who's ironically more brutality-blunt and sociopathic than Hazama has ever been), he does this by gleefully trolling and torturing everyone he meets, [[spoiler:and possibly because he's a vessel that he literally lacks a heart]].

** Note that in his origin game, he (more specifically Terumi) trolls others to feed on their hatred, as that's what sustains him. Despite this, ''Centralfiction'' seems to show that Hazama makes much more use of trolling than someone as vicious, sadistic and bloodthirsty as Terumi.

Both are very fast iaido practitioners with long katanas, both are pretty boys and both are ''bad''. However Adam is strictly an antagonistic force in ''RWBY'''s story, while Jin is more of an AntiHero than anything.

* CoolBigBro: A lot of Ragna's interactions with Ruby have him acting like a kind-of surrogate older brother. It's quite sweet, despite being a heavy contrast to Yang's doting attitude with her baby sister or Ragna's violently protective attitude over Noel. Ragna's also cooperative with the Investigation Team in ''Episode P4A'', and he and Hyde share a lot of traits in common too with their interactions.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: If they win, she compliments ''[[ButtMonkey Yosuke]]'', of all people.

Added DiffLines:

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Many Astral Heats leave no bodies behind, so this is not uncommon, but Blake's completely reduces her opponents' body to dust that blows away.


* DifficultButAwesome: Hakumen has a Yukiko-grade "touch of death" combo while in Resonance Blazem, which the game itself shows you how to do as one of his combo challenges. [[SomeDexterityRequired Dexterity is very much required]] to pull it off, and it takes 9 meters to use, but it allows Hakumen to absolutely annihilate anyone that lets themselves get caught by it. This being just at Level 1 Resonance Blaze, [[OhCrap imagine how much damage it deals in Level 5]].
