Tips and Tricks

Weave (weak) can be used to build SP while opponent is idle.

Duck and Weave can be linked together continuously to build Wind Gauge before attacking, allowing for creative combos.

Cyclone Uppercut can be combo'd together up to three times. This tactic is situational, however, so use caution.

Akihiko's grab can be combo'd into any of his wind combo attacks, allowing for even the use of an SP skill such as Cyclone Uppercut immediately following the grab.

Only Dodge Strike (boost) can counter low attacks. Keep this in mind, especially fighting a character who is prone to using sweeps or lows.

Double Uppercut can be chained into both Cyclone Uppercut and Maziodyne. It is unconfirmed, however, whether additional levels of Wind Gauge add damage to Double Uppercut.

Combos

Basic Strategy

With the second highest health in the game, 10000, Akihiko can take many risks and make many mistakes during a round. His damage output, especially with players experienced in using his Wind Gauge, is also extremely high in short bursts. His All-Out Rush alone can deal above 2000, and can rival most SP skills in the game. When playing Akihiko, use the Wind Gauge creatively to disable opponents and cause massive damage very quickly.

When beginning a match, most opponents will expected a Kill Rush and either counter or block. If you suspect a counter, Weave instead (which can be followed up with a Corkscrew if the opponent does in fact attack). If the opponent blocks, on the other hand, Akihiko has very good switch-ups that allow for a short pressure game before breaking through. Both his sweep and All-Out Rush can be combo'd from his Kill Rush, forcing the opponent to pay close attention to which you may use. If you suspect the opponent will block either one, using Boomerang Hook (strong) fully charged will break any defense, but only if the opponent is caught off guard. As a fight continues, make good use of telegraphed attacks by using Akihiko's Dodge Strike and both Duck and Weave. Duck and Weave can both avoid projectiles for a short period, even dashing through Naoto's last bullet for a quick counter or Narukami's Zio. When in Awakening, Akihiko can quickly make a comeback with one well placed counter. Rushing opponents or long range opponents, specifically Yosuke and Naoto, are especially vulnerable to Maziodyne counters.
