Akatsuki is the main character of the game so it's no surprise that he is one of the fireball archetypes with a special moveset consisting of a fireball, uppercut, and flying kick. Following the tradition of many fireball archetypes, Akatsuki is a well-rounded character with moves for practically every situation. He can convert random pokes into big damage with the opponent in and away from the corner using his devastating 6C or his 6B overhead.
