An Akuma is an evil fire spirit with an enormous flaming head and eyes of fire. Oh, and a large terrifying sword which it swings around as it flies through the air. It can slice off your head and grill it for a tasty snack before you can say “Arrgghhh help nooooo arrrggghhhhhhhhhh!”
The name ‘AKUMA’ means ‘devil’ in Japanese, and that’s putting it mildly. The Akuma character in the Street Fighter video games is a total wimp in comparison to these horrific monsters.
Sighting an Akuma is extremely bad luck. If you see one, pretend that you haven’t. The less you know the better. Just get away as quickly as you can — preferably in the direction of the nearest fire extinguisher.
