Tsurigane Wari (釣鐘割り, Temple Bell Splitter)
Hanzou begins by throwing his opponent into the air by means of his Ninpo Universal Doll's "Straw Bag Throw". He then catches the opponent in mid-air and holds him/her upside down over his knee, holding their ankles in such a fashion that their legs are bent at both the hip and the knees. As they land, the opponent's legs are bent apart and his/her head is smashed between his own knee and Hanzou's. Renamed Wasabi Wallop in the English dub and translated as Hanzou Style Secret: Hanging Bell Breaker in the English manga.
You'ude Katana (妖腕刀, Ghastly Arm Blade)
A technique most often saved until his opponent is all but defeated. Hanzou inserts his right forearm into the sheath on his back, where it transforms into a sword. He then performs a vertical slash to cut off the victim's face, frequently shouting the phrase "Your face is mine!" as he does so. Renamed Corrupt Katana in the English dub and translated as Bewitching Arm Blade in the English manga.

At a very young age, Hanzou's face was horribly burned in a fire (in the anime, he is said to have gotten this burn from radiation from a meteor shower). As a result, he is reminded of this incident and struck with fear whenever he sees fire. Through Prajñā, he decides to put on a mask and become a phantom killer, skinning his victim's faces and keeping the rawhide. In the course of his rampage, he kills 295 Planet Kinniku Soldiers, among them Kokumo, The Ninja's student. Subsequently arrested by The Ninja, Hanzou is imprisoned.

Kajiba no Kuso Djikara Challenge

Hanzou is introduced as No Respect #2 in Mantarou Kinniku's Kajiba no Kuso Djikara Challenge. They are set to fight in a special ring at Kiyomizu-dera in Kyoto, but The Ninja, who deems him too dangerous an opponent for the challenge, intervenes and fights him first. The Ninja deploys a multitude of impressive tactics, including his Ninpo Spider Web Binding. However, Hanzou is able to counter them all, and subjects The Ninja to psychological torture by creating a tatami puppet, giving it Kokumo’s face and having it accuse The Ninja of cowardice. Finally, Hanzou slices The Ninja's face off with the You'ude Katana and knocks him out of the ring to fall to his death.

During Hanzou's match with Mantarou, he severes most of the ring ropes with the You'ude Katana. Hanzou throws Mantarou out of the ring at one point, but Mantarou is encouraged by The Ninja's spirit to continue. Mantarou eventually defeats Hanzou with the Muscle Millennium Lengths (which require but a single set of ropes to perform). After the match, Mantarou saves Hanzou from falling through the mat and ties The Ninja’s scarf around his head to cover his disfigured face from the crowd, gaining the flame of self-sacrifice in doing so. Grateful but before his incarceration, Hanzou warns Mantarou that his final opponent, Bone Cold, far supersedes both Fork the Giant (Forkolossus) and himself in terms of strength and malice.

Demon Seed Arc

Template:Section-stub During the Demon Seed Arc, Hanzou is granted a one-time release from his prison on Planet Kinniku in order to help the Idol Choujins defeat General Terror.

Hanzou fights against Gepparland and defeats him with the Tsurigane Wari, but the two of them are then impaled and killed by General Terror's horn. Hanzou is later resurrected by the Reborn Diamond
