Akira Yuki (アキラ)

Introduction

Akira is a Hakkyoku-ken fighter battling in the 5th World Fighting Tournament to test his skills and to find a worthy opponent. He's never seen without his trusty hachimaki.

A guest character from the SEGA arcade game series Virtua Fighter, specifically wearing his outfit from Virtua Fighter 5.

Gameplay

Akira is the quintessential fighting game rushdown character. He sports decent, quick normals with deceiving range for an unarmed fighter. His game plan is to get in your face and condition you to make unforced errors in close-range combat and punish. His unique dash move 666B can quickly close mid-range gaps and start his turn. With the absolute best back dash in the game, he can move out of opponents' close-range pokes and move back in with his equally-quick forward dash.

Akira Gameplay Sample

Pros

  • Best back dash in the game, allowing you to bait and punish whiffed buttons more easily than others
  • Best Red Trump Card in the game. Tetsuzankou is your best anti-air, your best reversal, and among one of your best raw punish moves.
  • Unique 666B move can catch opponents off-guard with its deceptive reach

Cons

  • Poor synergy with most assists. Akira is quite picky!
  • Struggles against zoners due to his step dash
  • Mediocre Impact Skills (AB moves)
  • Can feel overwhelmed in neutral due to lack of a fast run or giant buttons

Recommended Assists

Erio - Erio augments Akira's oppressive close-range game to maximize any advantages he pushes. 5S removes any opponent hitboxes that touch her while she jumps, netting easy punishes against antsy foes and forcing respect. 6S is a pressure extender and pseudo-projectile that goes off by hitting (pushing) her to help her slide across the screen. You can repeat this more than once per 6S call.

Dokuro - Dokuro-chan is both a powerful neutral tool and a damaging combo extender. 5S is DFCI's greatest anti-air, covering the entire vertical space two character lengths in front of you. This is perfect for catching jump-outs on your offense, and clipping jump-happy opponents on your defense. 6S is a full-screen projectile. Just in case.

Celty - Celty is part neutral tool and part setplay staple. 5S is a giant hitbox in front of you that zooms across the screen with only 10 frame start-up. It’s great for scrambles, mid-screen stand-offs, and quick punishes into hard knockdown. 6S is a giant anti-air bike that hits twice to afford you two opportunities to run cross-ups or tick throws, though it’s a bit slow to call out without hard knockdown.

Potentials

Universal Potential: Increases damage dealt by 10% for 20 seconds when health falls under 30%. If behind in rounds won, increases damage dealt by 20% instead.

Character Potential: Counter hit the opponent twice to increase damage dealt by 10% for 10 seconds. Can be activated three times a round.
