Strategy/Usage

Akira is a multi-purpose offensive unit, due to Akira's immunity to weakening effects for all forms, he is useful when faced against enemies who apply this kind of debuff, most notably Calamary.

Normal Form

In his Normal Form, he acts as an offensive crowd control unit against Aliens, which can make dealing with tough Alien bosses like Nimoy Bore much easier. He has fantastic synergy with cats that excel at damaging Aliens, like Aphrodite or stacks of Macho Legs Cat. Akira freezes the Aliens in their tracks, allowing your damage-dealers to wipe them out.

Evolved Form

Shadow Akira is a very well-rounded damage dealer that is great in all areas. Due to his Strengthen ability, he is the best form for taking on any type of enemy, though excelling at none. This form is best used for offensive support to add to high DPS teams. He is extremely effective against resilient wave attackers like Kory or Elizabeth the LVIth. It is possible to use meatshields in combination with Shadow Akira to make taking out wave attackers easier.

True Form

Inferno Akira gains the Strong ability against Aliens, but in exchange for his previous form's Strengthen. Unless his Talents are unlocked, Inferno Akira is only preferred over his other forms if the player is already able to keep Aliens slowed or frozen. However, Inferno Akira with talents makes his other forms obsolete, as he gains all of the abilities back from his previous forms, combined into one.

Appearance

  • Normal Form: A boy wearing a light grey helmet, breastplate, pauldron, gauntlet, boots, and white bodysuit. He also wields a giant arm-drill with a cat ornament on his left hand.
  • Evolved Form: He gained long white hair and his armor became sharper and received a darker tone. The arm-drill changed into some sort of lance with a sinister-looking face on it. The cat face ornament remains, but is in front of the blade which makes it easier to see.
  • True Form: Akira's armor is now mainly red and black. His sword, now overflowing with energy, has a hexagonal jewel instead of a circular one and reveals two red laser blades when attacking. The sinister face of the blade is given red eyes and a mouth with sharper, more curved teeth, and the cat face now has the expression of a Crazed Cat.

Trivia

  • This unit might be inspired by X and Zero from the Rockman/Megaman franchise. The arm cannon is their common trait and his Evolved Form's and True Form's hair is quite similar to Zero's.
  • This unit shares the same name as the popular sci-fi anime film Akira, where a psychic explosion causes World War III in the year 2019.
  • Akira is the only Dark Hero whose Evolved Form has no anti-Alien abilities.
  • Prior to version 9.7, Shadow Akira was not immune to waves.
