Big Akai has a small-medium muscular build. He has his hair tied into cornrows with a goatee beard. He has a patterned bandanna. He wears a red basketball vest over a white-hemmed black one. The red vest has the number 50 on the front, and a tribal symbol on the back. He wears a pair of black jeans and red trainers. He has tribal tattoos on both of his upper arms.
He is first encountered alongside his younger brother and fellow Bloody Eye leader Little Akai at the Deborah night club while Kiryu is looking for the person who kidnapped Haruka. After fighting the whole gang, Kiryu questions him about Haruka's whereabouts. Akai says that he does not know where she is and tells Kiryu that Lau Ka Long hired the gang to wreak havoc at the West Park and kidnap Haruka.
Fighting Style Edit
He fights using a mix of capoeira and breakdancing, similar to Goro Majima's Breaker style.
- Big Akai is actually physically smaller than Little Akai; "Big" comes from the fact that he is the elder brother.
- The name Akai comes from the Japanese word for Red, hence why their Bloody Eye gang wears red.
