Akira Yuki (結城 晶 Yūki Akira) is the mascot of the Virtua Fighter video game series. His fighting style is Bajiquan, a Chinese martial art (pronounced "Hakkyoku-Ken" in Japanese). Canonically, he won the second World Fighting Tournament (Virtua Fighter 2). Akira strives for perfection and will drive himself relentlessly to master his techniques. He seeks worthy opponents to fight in order to find flaws in his skills to further attain mastery. In the original Virtua Fighter, Akira serves as the assistant instructor at Yuki Budokan, and is known to be hot-blooded and impulsive by nature. He also can be naive and intemperate. After completing his training under his grandfather's tutelage at the age of 23, he went on a quest to test his abilities. When he got word of the 1st World Fighting Tournament, he decided to enter and test his abilities. He was a childhood friend of Aoi Umenokoji.
In the Virtua Fighter anime, Akira starts his quest to see the eight stars in heaven after he had gotten overconfident in his Bajiquan skills from his days training with his grandfather. He is often seen as a comedic glutton in the anime series, as opposed to the games where he is serious and disciplined. Akira Yuki and Jacky Bryant are partners in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. He is appears in Project X Zone with Pai Chan as his partner, and returns in the sequel with Kage Maru as his partner. He also appears as a guest character in Dead or Alive 5. He appears in Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax as a boss, as well as a playable fighter, with Pai as his assist, and was originally a non-playable final boss character in previous console release of arcade version. A Mii Fighter costume based on Akira's original polygonal Virtua Fighter appearance appears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as downloadable content alongside a Jacky Mii Fighter costume.
