Looks like you'll be wiping with your left hand now, Sorrento!

Akihide Karatsu (Japanese: 唐津明秀 [Karatsu Akihide]) is one of the overarching protagonists for Ready Player One and is a friend of Daito and a Gunter who embarked upon Halliday's Easter Egg Hunt alongside Daito. In the movie, his real name is Xo, a Chinese American.

He was portrayed by Philip Zhao.

Personality

In contrast to Toshiro Yoshiaki, whom Akihide sees as a brother figure but is cold and untrusting of others, Akihide is more friendly to other gunters (namely those in the High Five) and connects with Wade Watts on a better level than Daito did. He reaches out to Parzival to inform him of Daito's digital and physical death at the hands of IOI.
