Akira Yuki

Akira Yuki is one of the main characters of the Virtua Fighter fighting game series. His style is Bajiquan a Chinese martial art that features explosive, short-range power and is famous for its elbow strikes which are trademark moves for Akira.

Akira Yuki appeared in all parts of the series and was always on the cover of the games, he also appeared in Fighter`s Mega Mix and Sega All-Stars Racing. His back story is always about proving strength to himself and his grandfather and train in some mountains…its pretty plain and generic just like his design..but its Virtua Fighter we talk about…

His latest playable appearance so far was in Dead or Alive 5 and its upgrade DOA5 Ultimate where he is a guest character together with a handful of others from the Virtua Fighter series. He also was part of a team with Pai in the crossover Project X Zone in 2012. Akira is also an Assist Trophy, appearing in his classic Virtua Fighter design in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. 


Did you know?: Kage-Maru defeated Akira in the first and fourth Tournament and humiliated him

In Sega All-Stars racing Akira appeared together with Jacky Bryant as a playable character /driver,he also is available as a small 3d capsule toy in Shenmue 1 and 2 🙂

 Akira Yuki is one of the fighting game characters who are very rarely drawn by fans or even cosplayed.
