Summary

Bio

Having embraced the Satsui No Hado, Akuma seeks only to improve his ability by fighting the strongest opponents


Why Pick Akuma?

Of the Shotos in Street Fighter V, Akuma (Gouki in Japan) is the most offensive oriented of them and has the most tools. With his regular and red fireballs Akuma can effectively zone people out, and with his fast + on block buttons and strong crush counters and fast walk speed he can effectively play footsies or mix people up with Demon Flip; and with an invincible reversal, a 3f jab, and his parry V-Skill he can get out of pressure and start his offense again. In other words Akuma has it all. His air fireball also makes it easy to approach against some characters when he decides he wants to pressure. His largest weakness is his low HP, which at 900 is the lowest in the game meaning making mistakes become much more costly. If you want it all at the cost of your life, Akuma is the character for you.

V Reversal

A standard 17f strike V-Reversal. Akuma lets out a spinning kick, knocking his opponent away.

V Skill

A 3f parry, unlike Ryu's Akuma takes grey life after absorbing a hit. He can cancel his parry into two moves, a punch attack that knocks the opponent away or an upwards kick that can be special canceled into Demon Flip. He does not have to successfully parry an attack to cancel into these moves, allowing him to use them in combos as well.

V Trigger 1

Dohatsu Shoten is a 3 bar V-Trigger, and one of the strongest in the game. It greatly powers up several of his special moves during its activation. His air fireball now always throws out two making it much more difficult to avoid and more advantageous on block. His ground fireball now floats the opponent, allowing a follow up combo. His Goshoryuken now is fully invincible without EX Meter, and causes a hard knock down on hit allowing Akuma to easily time his setups without having to worry about different wake-up timings. It also gives him access to his Raging Demon Critical Art, which is a fast moving command grab that does 400 damage on hit and is impossible to avoid in certain setups; using this takes the remaining of his V-Trigger gauge. In total he gets about 4-5 specials moves during it, which can easily be enough to close out a round.

V Trigger 2

Shiretsu Hasshi is a 2 bar V-Trigger that allows Akuma to cancel any of his specials into an EX Special. This increases his potential damage output from combos, or allows him to setup chip strings canceling regular fireball into red fireball. He only gets 2 cancels total per activation. After canceling into a move you cannot cancel into it again, so Tatsu xx EX Tatsu xx EX Tatsu is not possible, however Tatsu xx EX Tatsu xx EX Air Fireball is using the entire V-Gauge. Akuma also does not have access to Raging Demon in this V-Trigger.
