Skill Analysis

Hayabus is a hero that has four abilities which are one passive and three actives. In this Hayabusa guide, let’s see what are his abilities in Mobile Legends, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of him.

Passive – Ninjutsu: Trace of Shadow (Buff)

Hayabusa’s damage applies a stack of Shadow Mark to an enemy [Hero/Creep] hit (up to 4 stacks). Each stack lasts 6 seconds and increases Hayabusa’s damage to the enemy by 5% (to a maximum of 20%).

Skill 1 – Ninjutsu: Phantom Shurike (Damage, Buff)

Passive: Hayabusa gains 3% / 6% / 9% / 12% / 15% / 18% Spell Vamp each time Ninjutsu Phantom Shuriken Ninjutsu: Phantom Shuriken is levelled up.

Active: Hayabusa shoots three shurikens forward and quickly retrieves them, dealing 170 / 190 / 210 / 230 / 250 / 270 (+70% Extra Physical Attack) Physical Damage to enemies hit (subsequent hit deals 30% or 51 / 57 / 63 / 69 / 75 / 81 (+21% Extra Physical Attack) damage) and slowing them by 35% for 2 seconds. Hayabusa restores 10 energy if a non-[Minion] enemy is hit.

First Phase

Hayabusa dashes towards a designated direction and releases phantoms in four directions [behind him]. Upon hitting an enemy [Hero] the phantom will deal 130 / 140 / 150 / 160 / 170 / 180 (+30% Extra Physical Attack) Physical Damage and attach itself to them, slowing them by 40% for 2 seconds. Hayabusa will stop immediately if he hits an enemy during the dash.

Second Phase

Hayabusa teleports to a phantom’s location. Also deals 130 / 140 / 150 / 160 / 170 / 180 (+30% Extra Physical Attack) Physical Damage and reduces the cooldown of Phantom Shuriken by 1 second if the phantom is attached to an enemy Hero.

Skill 3 – Ougi: Shadow Kill (Burst)

Hayabusa blends into shadows and launches 6 / 9 / 12 single-target attacks on enemies in the area, each time dealing 130 / 140 / 150 (+75% Extra Physical Attack) Physical Damage.

The attacks will prioritize enemies with Shadow Mark, dealing an extra 45 / 50 / 55 (+20% Extra Physical Attack) while consuming a stack of Shadow Mark.

Skill-up Method for Hayabusa

Players should unlock their first skill first and then their second skill. They should max out their Second first followed by First skill and Ultimate whenever available. His first skill is her main damage source.

Best Emblem Set and Spells for Hayabusa in Mobile Legends

Emblem Set

Hayabusa is one of the most popular heroes among Mobile Legends players. He is well known for his high farming skills, gank potential & ability to kill the enemy backliners easily. To make Hayabusa gameplay effective and flawless in Jungling, players are expected to use the Custom Assassin Emblem for penetration, adaptive attack & movement speed.  With the Custom Assassin Emblem players can use whichever Talent best suits their gameplay. However, we’ve brought up some of the best Emblem/Talent Set-up that is advisable to be used for Hayabusa.

The Custom Assassin Emblem ever since its Revamp, provides players with access to 3 different talents. Hence, for Hayabusa’s Emblem Set-up, the following setup is expected of players:

  1. In the First-tier Talent, we will suggest Rupture for physical penetration it will help Hayabusa in the early game to give some damage to the enemy heroes.
  2. In the Second-Tier Talent, we will suggest Master Assassin. It will increase by 5% damage to the lone enemy. Hayabusa is best for a 1v1 situation with Master Assassin he can dominate 1v1 more easily. 
  3. In the Third-Tier Talent, we will suggest Lethal Ignition. Its extra damage on multi-hits melts enemies. Adaptive damage also scales with level.

Battle Spells

The only battle spell we recommend is Retribution. Players should want to jungle you must pick retribution as your spell and Hayabusa is not effective in other roles except jungle.

Best Builds for Hayabusa in Mobile Legends

Hayabusa is one of the best jungler from early to late game. Once he is fed it’s kind of impossible to stop him. But for this snowball is needed from the early game. Developers have created the template in our guide to try out Hayabusa on the Mobile Legends battlefield.

You can start building the Swift Boots with Flame Hunter retribution. The swift boots will give movement speed & attack speed. For the Second item, you can have the Hunter Strike for cooldown reduction, Physical Penetration & movement speed (dealing the same enemy or creep damage 5 times). For the third item, you can have the Blade of Heptaseas for physical damage & some HP. If you don’t take damage for 5 seconds the next basic attack will give 40% physical attack as extra physical damage. It will also slow down enemies for a few seconds.

For the fourth item, you can have the Blade of Despair. If enemies are below 50% hp it will deal 25% extra Physical attack. For the Fifth item, players can have Endless Battle. Endless Battle is best for those with Physical Attack, HP, Cooldown Reduction, Hybrid Life-steal, Movement Speed, and Mana Regen. It also gives true damage. After casting a skill the next Basic Attack within 3 seconds deals 60% Physical Attack as extra True Damage. For the Sixth one, you can have the Malefic Roar for more penetration. If the enemy has tanky heroes, it is better to build the Malefic roar after Hunter Strike.

Mobile Legends Hayabusa Gameplay Tips

Hayabusa is one of the best heroes for ranking up Solo. He is a bit weak in the early game but starts to shine from the Mid game. Once he has some of these core items, he can burst down squishy heroes instantly if they are off guard. Our Hayabusa guide includes the perfect game plan for the early and middle/late games in Mobile Legends.

Early Game

Mobile Legends Hayabusa Early Game

Hayabusa is very weak and vulnerable at the early stage of the game. If you are not sure enough about Hayabusa’s early-game damage, you might want to try it on a very low HP hero. In order to try it out, head to the Blue Buff, as it is pretty essential for Hayabusa due to its Energy-based skills. Then head to Blue buff go to Turtle and look for kills and gank opportunities. 

Skill 1 + Basic Attack + Skill 2 + Skill 2 + Basic Attack + Skill 2 + Basic Attack

Mid Game

In the mid-game, her true damage passive along with her enhanced skills hurts enemies a lot. Whenever there is an opportunity to push the lane, make sure to use it wisely.

Mobile Legends Hayabusa Mid Game

Skill 1 + Basic Attack + Skill 2 + Skill 2 + Basic Attack + Ultimate

By this time, you must have farmed well and equipped the base items for Hayabusa. Head for some kills and never forget to steal the turtle. At this point, Hayabusa can easily kill the solo targets. Look at the mini-map and look for the enemy mage or marksman if they are alone. Acquiring objectives is also equally important for Hayabusa. Before you engage, make sure to alert your team by using the ping features of the game.

Late Game

Simply rotate around the map and tell your Tank to provide vision in order to flee from a potential gank. It might not be easy for you to one-shot the enemy with a simple combo, but with the help of your team, you will surely be able to do that. Look for any solo targets roaming without backup, and take them out with the given combo. In the late game, you have to also beware of the enemy marksman’s Wind of Nature. If it’s passive is still available, then the Ultimate or any physical damage won’t be able to kill them, you have to keep track of their items and passive.

Thank you. It was really helpful.


Do the basic attack after every skill. This will deal huge damage. You must do it fast.

Really? I didnt know know that. But does Hayabusa have any passive ioke that? It would work after buying a specific item i think.


buy endless battle instand of blood axt, because with endless battle, you make true damage after skill and 1. skill also have spellvamp, so you dont need blood axt. the my combo. 2-basic-1-basic-2-2-1-basic-3-basic-1-2-recall-emote. is hard combo, but very powerfull


Update the changes in his passive and build too as per latest patch and current meta build .
