Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax/DFCI/Akira Yuki
Originally from the Sega-AM2 developed arcade series Virtua Fighter. A champion of the second tournament who seeks what true strength. He can be unlocked if the player beat most of the stage without Climax Arts to battle Akira in console version.
Akira is likely one of the four Shoto type characters in the game. One of his moves associates from his series and Dead or Alive 5 (and its updates), except, some of their damage properties are different between both fighting game areas. Akira is an unique character to play, unlike in 3d fighting game area, he's a friendly character to use, one of two characters (other being Rentaro) to have a command move, can perform air solo combo without assist or EX moves (like Kirino and Rentaro etc.), has a various different special moves like Dante in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (& its Ultimate update) (save for aerial version of Renkantai), even has a two EX only moves like Shura Haoh Koukazan and Youhou. Being a character who doesn't have a projectile type moves (safe for Hougeki Unshin Soukoshou) is rarely focused on short-ranged ground attack punishes, in akin to his playstyle combo in 3D fighting game area. Most of his moves' damage properties are mostly strikes and knockdowns opponents. His play traits is similar to Akatsuki in Under Night In-Birth: Exe Late, such as being a Shoto character who only has a step dash. On a side note, his Air B, Kaiko capture combo, MAX version of Koboku, Hougeki Unshin Soukoshou Climax Art 3rd hit/Sosho's ki-blast and a new Climax Art Yuki-ryu Hakkyoku-ken Hiden Guren Hozan are unique to this game.
Before Version 1.21 console release update, he was seemingly broken, where as Moukokouhazan and Jouhou Senshou were the only special moves to appear, his Air C was Renkantai before downgraded to Tankyaku/Utankyaku, Shura Haoh Koukazan first hit sprite was Mouko Kouhazan's, Teishitsu Dantai was the only Impact Skill move, and Hougeki Unshin Soukoshou didn't have invuln. startup to akin to his original 3D fighting game's damage properties and was the only Climax Art.
