Dead or Alive
Dead or Alive 5
A descendant of the founder of the Yuki Budokan, he has been taught his own unique style by his father, based on Hakkyoku-Ken (also known as Ba Ji Quan, the same style as Kokoro). He spends his days training to become the greatest martial artist in the world. He enters the World Fighting Tournament as a way to test himself. The main character of the Virtua Fighter series.
World Fighting Tournament
Second World Fighting Tournament
Already a legendary master of the art of Hakkyoku-ken, Akira has spent the past year traveling and honing his skills to a razor edge. Though he didn't win the first tournament, he considered it a learning experience, and eagerly anticipates trying out his new moves on all comers.
Third World Fighting Tournament
Realizing that he lacked experience from his failure to win the First World Fighting Tournament, Akira went through rigorous training to prepare himself for the Second World Fighting Tournament.

Akira returned home, with the second tournament trophy.Yet as he was about to proclaim his victory, his grand-father told him, “Don’t flatter yourself. You haven’t mastered anything yet.” In order to solve the question “What is true strength,” Akira resolved to fight in the tournament once more.

On the eve of the Third Tournament, Akira is about to demonstrate his prowess. Are we ready to see what deadly powers Akira will unleash?
Fourth World Fighting Tournament
Akira failed to win the Third World Fighting Tournament. After he returned home to Japan and told his grandfather about his loss, he isolated himself in a mountainside retreat to train rigorously to atone for his lack of ability. Whilst questioning himself, “What is true strength?”, Akira was suprised to discover a number of devastating new moves. As he continued to improve his style, Hakkyoku-Ken, Akira felt his soul strengthening, and immediately resolved to fight in the tournament once more to demonstrate his improved skill.
Fifth World Fighting Tournament
Akira left the Fourth World Fighting Tournament in the semifinals, defeated by Kage-Maru. With only disappointment to show for his efforts in the third and fourth tournaments, Akira began to doubt himself. But one day, as he continued his training deep in the mountains, Akira’s gaze dropped to a creek nearby. A single leaf rode the current, and spun around a boulder in the middle of the stream, avoiding it neatly.
“The leaf spins because it rides the stream, not trying to resist the flow…”
With a new epiphany fresh in his mind, Akira resumed his training.
And now, as his training nears its close, an invitation for the fifth tournament arrives.
“Now, I should be able to hold my own—and more—against him.”

Fun Facts
Virtua Reject
Siba was originally planned to be in the first Virtua Fighter game. Early screenshots showed him in the game, and official character art was released of him. However, when the game actually hit arcades, Siba was replaced with Akira Yuki. In some early revisions of the game, Siba's portrait can still be seen on the cabinet art, albeit labeled as "Akira".
