Akira Yuki (結城 晶, Akira Yuki) is the main protagonist and mascot of the Virtua Fighter universe.
Akira Yuki is the mascot of the Virtua Fighter series. In the original game, he serves as the assistant instructor at his family's dojo, Yuki Budokan. When he learns of the first World Fighting Tournament at age 23, he decides to enter in order to test his abilities.
As a costume
Akira is the basis for a paid downloadable content costume for Mii Brawlers. Nintendo also released a QR code for those who wish to have the exact Mii used in the costume's advertising. The costume is similar to his debut appearance in the original Virtua Fighter, where graphical limitations had him appear in a blocky and polygonal form.
As an Assist Trophy
Akira is an Assist Trophy. Like his Mii costume, he appears with his original blocky and polygonal model from the original Virtua Fighter, and his animations resemble the choppy movements of the original game. His voice clips are reused from Virtua Fighter 4. He can use a variety of martial arts attacks from Virtua Fighter, including his signature move, the Tetsuzanko (where he grabs an opponent and slams into them, launching them forward). He can also block incoming attacks. Before he disappears, he says his famous quote from the Virtua Fighter series, "十年早いんだよ!" ("It's ten years too soon for you to challenge me!", literally "Ten years too early!") He is also a Spirit for the game's Spirit mode.
