Introduction

About Akuma

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

Akuma is possibly the most versatile character in the game, a flexible shoto-style character with fast walkspeed and a variety of tools to effectively approach, keep opponents out, mix up opponents on offense, and make comebacks with powerful V-triggers. The price he pays for this versatility is frighteningly low health and stun, as well as somewhat short range on some of his normals. His fireball knocks down at close range, leading to a much stronger offensive situation than other shoto projectiles if it intercepts the extended hurtbox of an attacking opponent, and his red fireballs always knock down and can hit 1 to 3 times. His combination of divekick, air fireball, EX air fireball, and his variety of demon flip attacks make it very difficult to stifle his airborne approaches for all but the most judicious defenders. Of course, on top of all this he has one of the best 3f normals in the game, fantastic for abare or intercepting an opponent's forward dash and a defensive complement to his invincible reversal. Overall, he's a character who can easily command the flow of a round right from the start, but can also see that control slip away quickly with just a few bad guesses against characters with high stun output.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Movement: with good forward walk speed, a fast dash, a variety of moves that can be used in the air, and demon flip (41236K/KK), Akuma has many ways to alter his approach depending on the matchup and available resources
  • Strong whiff punishes: due to his aforementioned fast walk speed Akuma is capable of placing himself in ranges that he excels in, particularly in good ranges for punishing opponents whiffing attacks recklessly
  • Versatile: Akuma has nearly every tool a character could need at his disposal, allowing him to provide consistent answers to many common situations that can happen throughout the course of a match
  • Varied v-system: both of Akumas v-skills and v-triggers are potent tools that offer him significant freedom in how he uses his v-meter
  • Good meter usage: Akuma has a very powerful, single hit super that can easily guts crush, as well as potent EX moves that give him a variety of options to choose from in how he spends his meter
  • Frail: tied with Seth for the lowest health and stun in the game (900 for each), Akuma is very prone to dying in two to three well optimized combos against a large portion of the cast
  • Can be weak to zoning: Akumas meterless fireball doesn't travel fullscreen and has generally unremarkable frame data, leading to situations where he is forced to take risky approaches while having a life deficit
  • Stubby normals: Akumas normals generally have average to below average reach, leading to some matchups forcing him to play the ground game less

V-system

V-Trigger 1: Dohatsu Shoten

Enhances Akuma's ground and air fireballs, his DP, and grants him access to Raging Demon, a command grab super. His air fireball becomes an extremely safe tool for neutral and offense, while his DP is a great combo tool that leads to a hard knockdown. A fantastic comeback trigger, but one that's easy to quickly burn through, and demands conservative use of meter to reap the full benefits of using it.

V-Trigger 2: Shiretsu Hasshi

Gives Akuma access to meterless versions of his EX moves, which he can cancel into from his other specials or his heavy normals. Leads to huge damage combos, certain powerful conversions VT1 doesn't have access to, easy corner escapes on block, and devastating corner chip sequences. However, the high timer costs of its moves make it difficult to consistently get full value out of this trigger.

V-Skill 1: Rakan

Akuma takes an armored stance, which leads to a launching followup used for starting combos and anti-air, or a knockdown followup used for ending combos and ranged punishes. Can punish V-reversals or certain neutral tools like divekicks and fireballs, and allows a corner escape without the use of VT2.

V-Skill 2: Kiai

Stomps the ground, launching the opponent and allowing a followup red fireball. Greatly increases Akuma's damage on many conversions, especially his Kongoken target combo which can cancel into it. Has some options if used on block, but it's mainly a combo tool.

SFV Frame Data Glossary
Active

How many frames a move remains active (can hurt opponents) for.

Attack

Attack level is L for low attacks (must be blocked crouching), H is for High attacks (which can be blocked high or low) and M for overhead (must be blocked standing). T is for throw attacks (which cannot be blocked).

Cancel options

Available cancel options.

  • "ch": Chain cancel, refer to description for options.
  • "sp": Special move.
  • "su": Critical art.
  • "vs[1/2]": V-Skill 1 or 2.
  • "vt[1/2]": V-Trigger 1 or 2 activation.
Confirm windows

Hit confirm windows written as Specials & CAs/Target Combos/V-Trigger. Notation may denote V-Skill only cancel windows in Specials.

  • Refers to the amount of time (in frames) you have to cancel into another move from the start of the animation.
Crush Counter

Crush Counter hit advantage written as opponent state, frame advantage, and v-gauge gain on hit.

Damage

Attack damage on hit. Notation may denote multi-hit or "sweet spot" damage values on certain frames.

Hit/Block

These are frame advantage values when the attack hits or is blocked. If the number is positive, then the move will end before the defender can act again. If the number is negative, the defender will be able to act before the attacker and maybe even punish. KD refers to knockdown on hit.

  • Note that generally, normal counter hits add an additional +2 to hit advantage in SFV.
Knockdown

Knockdown advantage against Normal, Quick Rise and Back Rise wake up options.

Recovery

How many frames it takes for a move to finish after it's been active.

Startup

How many frames it takes before the move becomes 'active' or have a hit box. The last startup frame and the first active frame are the same frame, meaning all values are written as Startup + 1.

Stun

Amount of stun added to the opponent's stun bar on hit.

Damage Stun Attack Block
- - - -
Shifts back 1.21 range
Fully invincible on frames 1-9 during which time any strike or projectile evaded will trigger a slow-motion effect on frame 11 for both players
Immediately gains full invincibility for the full duration of V-Shift if you successfully evade a strike or projectile on start-up frames 1-9
Throw invincible on frames 1-16 on an empty / raw V-Shift
Counter-Hit state on frames 10-31 on an empty / raw V-Shift
Opponent can still cancel the attack that was V-Shifted as if it had connected (this allows for a lot of shenanigans)
Costs 300 V-Gauge (1 bar) to use and refunds 150 V-Gauge back (1/2 bar) on a successful V-Shift if the slow-mo is triggered
If the V-Shift is successful you can cancel it into a follow-up attack (see V-Shift Break) that's fully invincible and knocks the opponent down on hit
