Background Edit

Burai Yamamoto is a recruitable character in Big Bang Age and a playable character in Big Bang Beat and Big Bang Beat Revolve.

Known as the "Fine-Eyed Baron" because of how his eyes are near-constantly closed, Burai is a strong, disciplined boxer who was forced to aid Agito of the Dark keep control of the school. When Rouga Zanma defeated Agito, Burai swore loyalty to Rouga and joined the Wolf Fang Brigade.

Despite his general seriousness and unflappability, Burai has a crippling fear of girls, as seen whenever he fights Senna Kyoudou, Kunagi Tenrou, Kinako Tsukiyomi, Kendou and Kyuudou Nakanishi, or Erika Miyazato. He also dislikes ghosts to the same, or even greater, degree.

Special Abilities Edit

Ducking (D) Burai slides forward quickly.

  • This move has two variations, Short Hop (2D) and Sway (4D).
  • Each use of Ducking or any variations uses up a bit of Burai's stamina meter, as do some move cancels.

Parrying (High/Low) (When an attack is incoming, tap 6 or 2)

  • Tapping 6 will enable you to parry attacks that are coming in high or mid. Tapping 2 will enable to to parry attacks coming in low.

Tactics Edit

General Strategies Edit

Though he has a few mid-range tools (most notably his Flicker Jabs), Burai is by and large a very up-close and personal fighter. With his stamina gauge, he has a number of devastating combos at his disposal due to the fact that it allows him to create many more chains than the textbook. In a pinch, it can also get him out of bad situations or put him into the fray relatively quickly. However, it is easy to overuse "stamina combos" and empty the gauge very quickly, so caution should be exercised to preserve it for the critical moment.

Burai's other great tool comes in the form of the parry. Though it takes timing and practice to do reliably, parrying a move at mid-or-close range will give him a strong opportunity to punish careless mistakes and combo the enemy to death.

Burai's supers can see standalone use, but they often don't, usually being tied into a combo to compensate for their relatively short range and semi-long windup. Dolphinfish Blow tends to be infinitely more useful for setting up juggle combos due to the ground bounce.

Combos Edit

Of every combo, unless stated otherwise, the full damage range of the combo will be given, with "-guts" damage in parentheses. "xx" denotes a special or super cancel of the previous move into the next move, ">" denotes a chain or link from the previous move to the next move, "*" denotes a required delay in the move to allow the full combo to land.

j.C > 5B > 5C > 6B > 2C > 6C > 6A > Full Charge 2C > **j.A > *j.B > j.B > j.C

  • 3975-4935 damage (4821)
