Introduction

I will shut you down.... forever!

Making his debut in 1984, Ikuro Hashizawa is the 17-year-old protagonist of the manga series Baoh (known in Japan and some other countries as Baoh the Visitor), arguably one of Hirohiko Araki's most famous pre-JoJo works. After being kidnapped by a secret military organization called Dress, Ikuro is forcefully implanted with a parasitic worm that grants its host superhuman powers, turning him into the unstoppable bioweapon BAOH (Biological Armament On Help). After escaping from the organization with the help of a 9-year-old psychic named Sumire, they are now on the run from the organization and its assassins.

Despite being a guest character, Baoh fits in perfectly with the cast both in design and gameplay. Baoh's kit is focused on relentlessly rushing down the opponent with his quick dash speed, multi-hitting "Baoh Shooting Stinger" projectiles, and ability to gain Super Armor on command, while being able to keep up his offensive momentum with his invulnerable "Saber Off!" reversal and threatening high/low mix-ups and cross-ups. This, coupled with his high-damage conversions, makes Baoh a solid pick for those who seek a well-rounded character with above-average execution requirements.

  • Astonishing Leap: Baoh has access to a Super Jump ability that can be cancelled from normals on both hit and block, giving him unique combo extensions and allowing for some situational mix-ups.
  • This is Baoh!: Through his unique abilities, Baoh can grant Super Armor to the startup of his next special move for 0.25 HH Gauge.

JJASBR Baoh Small Icon.png Ikuro Hashizawa is a character that uses his speed and Super Armor to rush the opponent down and keep his offensive momentum going.
Pros Cons
  • Rushdown Specialist: Baoh has access to multiple options meant to press forward, including the fastest dash speed in the game, making him very good at getting into the opponent's face and staying there.
  • Easy Conversions: Baoh can easily convert into highly damaging, meter positive combos. These combos usually end in a favourable knockdown thanks to "Baoh Melting Acid", granting him strong momentum as well.
  • Threatening Options: Baoh poses a threat from anywhere on the screen, thanks to his "Baoh Shooting Stinger" projectiles and very fast, fullscreen HHA.
  • Stubby Normals: While having a good approach, Baoh's buttons are rather small, making him easy to contest in scramble situations and in neutral.
  • Difficult Routing: Most of Baoh's optimal routing requires precise timing and tight execution.
  • Meter Reliant: Due to not having access to abilities like Stand Rush or Hamon Specials, Baoh is forced to rely on Flash Cancels for combo extensions.

Baoh Armed Phenomenon

After falling below certain HP thresholds, Baoh begins to regenerate HP, with the regeneration rate increasing depending on how low Baoh's health is:

  • Level 1: Activates at 75% HP
  • Level 2: Activates at 50% HP
  • Level 3: Activates at 25% HP

Scent of Murder

When an opponent triggers a special transformation or enters a powered-up state, Baoh's Stylish Evade window is increased by 4 frames. The following abilities trigger Scent of Murder:
