Marvel vs Capcom 3/Akuma
In a nutshell
Akuma has appeared in every "versus" game (you could play Ryu in Akuma mode in MvC1), but in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 he gets some extra juice. Akuma has one of the fastest beams in the game, and a versatile set of moves that allow him to put together some flashy combos. He has a few unorthodox angles of attack that may surprise opponents, but his average speed and poor range on most of his normal attacks limit his capabilities. You will need to plan your attacks carefully to make this low health, high damage character work. His level 3, the Shun Goku Satsu, is the most damaging Level 3 hyper in the game. He also has one of only two high hitting assists in the entire game.
