Barraza is a slow but high defense legend of Brawlhalla featuring the Blasters and Axe as his weapons. He can be unlocked for 5400 gold. Barraza is a human legend with a diesel powered heart and a steel will. He wears piecemeal armour hand-fashioned out of the scraps of an apocalyptic wasteland, and a large mask fitted with numerous tubes, which filters out the deadly mist of nanobots that created the devastated wasteland he came to dominate and rule over. Barraza is both fighter and survivor, using a fighting style equal parts brutality, cunning and stubbornness - while not the fastest Legend, he leaves a trail of devastation to demonstrate the cost of underestimating him.

The only thing in the wastelands that burns hotter than his rage is his diesel-fueled heart! - Mallhalla purchase description

Lore

Diesel Heart, The Lord of the Waste

Barraza is the answer. Find him. Search for him in the waste. If ever he loved me he will listen. Offer him our water. Offer him our fuel. Offer him everything if he will be our king. - Chief of the Waterlords

The apocalypse came not on a missile but a mist. MBFC's self replicating nanobot cloud bricked everything that relied on computer circuitry, which in 2150 was everything. Deployed on a rogue agent's hideout, the weaponized mist was supposed to become inert after twenty minutes.

Fifty years later, Barraza was born in an abandoned aircraft carrier outside the girder wastes once called Los Angeles. Soon waterhaulers, warbangers, zealots, radsuits, wastecroppers, junkers - all came to fear the wild man they called Diesel Heart.

Shot in the chest by The Fuel Lords and left for dead, he returned, kept alive by an iron will and an artificial heart burning diesel. Soon the Fuel Lords were dead, followed by the Ravagers, the Scorpions, the Battleborn, and every other challenger until Diesel Heart ruled the wastes from Four Face Mountain to the Steel Wall.

The ultimate survivor, Barraza knows Valhalla is another threat to overcome through violence and will. The next apocalypse is coming, and he will do what it takes to come out on top again.

Take his bike and water and leave him to the crows. I never even liked her. -Barraza

Appearance

Barraza wears piecemeal armour hand-fashioned out of the scraps of an apocalyptic wasteland, with spiked shoulder pads and armor plates held in place with cloth wraps, and a large gas mask fitted with numerous tubes, which filters out the deadly mist of nanobots that created the devastated wasteland he came to dominate and rule over. He also sports black fingerless gloves, white warpaint on his chest and ringing his eyes, a shocking turquoise mohawk and a single animal-canine earring in one ear. He has a large vertical scar on the side of his head, above the ear.

Signature Attacks

Blasters

Input Description Animation Damage Stun Frame Data Notes
Neutral A quick double-tap at an upwards diagonal with the front blaster. Barraza's pistols give this "double tap" a large blast radius. If Barraza hits anything with one or both blasts, he follows quickly by hopping into the air and delivering a simultaneous blast in the same direction with both blasters as he falls back to the ground on his back. This move is quite fast, and acts as a good anti-air attack. The blasts have long active frames and there is a short pause between the blasts where there are no active frames. However, the attack is very punishable and has long recovery frames. If this move is gravity cancelled, Barraza will fall back and down a significant distance after he finishes the move, so be careful.

or

Barraza steps forward, delivering a flaming sweep with his rear blaster, following through with the turn with another short step and a short, powerful blast with his front blaster. Overall carries Barraza forward a moderate distance. This move is a slower but more powerful version of Lord Vraxx's blasters side signature. In the same fashion, it is unstoppable, so use with caution.
A tumbling side-flip with both blasters extended. Barraza fires both blasters as he hits the ground and tumbles back up onto his feet. Strikes anything very close to Barraza - anything struck by this move is stunned and caught up as Barraza's blast knocks them up, to be struck by a powerful double blast from both blasters directly upwards. Somewhat similar to the beginning shot of his side signature, although it hits slightly farther and the follow-up blast from the ground happens only when the first shot hits anyone. Good for the times when the side signature is too long.

Axe

Input Description Animation Damage Stun Frame Data Notes
Neutral A lunging upwards leap with an upwards arcing, burning sweep with the axe. A target caught in the direct path of the axe's burning sweep is seized by the blade before Barraza hurls them backwards and down. This move has a lot of force, yet it often does not guarantee a KO until the enemy has taken a lot of damage because the enemy gets bounced off the ground. The attack can kill relatively early when gravity cancelled , since the enemy gets thrown down and backwards at a deadly angle as long as they don't bounce off the stage.

or

Barraza revs his axe, cheering, and performs an immense leaping lunge forward. At the apex of the leap, Barraza performs a double-turn in the air, delivering two short, powerful downward chops with the axe as he moves through the air. This attack does not hit anyone directly in front of Barraza, and somewhat resembles Sentinel's Hammer Side Signature.
Barraza performs a short hop backwards before bringing his axe smashing down against the ground where he was standing just a moment ago. There is a quick pause between the hop and the axe smash. The blast of the axe striking the earth hits low but has a wide splash radius. Very similar to Ragnir’s Forward signature. However, this attack allows Barraza to retreat and hits at his original position rather than in front of him, making it a good move for defense rather than offense.

Strategy

General

Axe The axe has massive hitboxes and strong aerial moves. The axe has a relatively large amount of force with most of its attacks and can KO quite early. However, they are not as effective as guns at racking up damage.

Blasters The blasters can build up damage very quickly, especially with Barraza's 6 strength. They are very good if you can space correctly but they have hardly any knock out moves. The only ways guns can get kills is with a recovery, a ground pound off-stage, a side air at very low health, and, of course, signatures. Therefore, the axe is often a better option for knockouts.

Trivia

  • Barraza's default weapons are named El Carnicero (axe) and Los Volcanes (blasters), which translate to "The Butcher" and "The Volcanoes" in Spanish.
  • Barraza's bot name is Barrobot.
  • MBFC, the corporation that released the tech-killing mist in Barraza's lore, is presumably the same corporation that trained and then fought against Ada in her lore, and built and subsequently lost control of Val in her lore. Its full name is the Meyers Baby Food Corporation.
  • Lore aside, Barraza's post-apocalyptic dystopian dieselpunk style is an homage to the Mad Max series of films.
  • Barazza was introduced to the game October 20, 2015.
