* AscendedExtra: In the manga, he only gets a panel or two of dialogue before Saito pulls him aside to fight Kenshin. The anime gives him a bit more screen time killing off Ishin Shishi agents. In the OVA, he not only gets more screen time interacting with Saito, but actually gets to fight Kenshin on-screen before Saito pulls him aside when his tuberculosis starts acting up.

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: And how. The ridest and most condescending character in the series, and so assured of his own power that he even belittles Kenshin's abilities and is completely unimpressed by a literal giant. But make no mistake, [[WorldsStrongestMan the man can back it up.]]

* BadassBoast: Everything he says to his opponents. With skill like his, it's less a boast and more like stating the obvious.

Added DiffLines:

* MusclesAreMeaningless: Completely averted. He's far and away the greatest living swordsman in the series, and one of the buffest characters. He actually gets on Kenshin's case for his scrawny physique because one needs a lot of physical power and conditioning to use the Hiten Mitsurugi style to its full potential.

The second son of a shōgun retainer, he was the childhood friend and fiancé of Yukishiro Tomoe. Fearing that his own meager position would not be enough to impress his betrothed, Akira postponed the wedding and left Edo for Kyoto to join the Mimawarigumi, where he became a bodyguard for the high-ranking samurai Shigekura Jūbei. [[spoiler:But in the first year of Genji (1864), after a night of drinking with Shigekura and fellow bodyguard Ishiji, Akira came face-to-face with the infamous Ishin Shishi hitokiri Himura Battōsai and met his demise.]]
