Mechanically enhanced by Apocalypse, Cyber-Akuma's upgrades include include a mechanical right arm (dubbed Booster Rocket), metal wings, and four extra arms that are only seen in one of his win poses. As such, his personality is vastly different from that of Akuma's, being more servile (as reflected in his win quotes.)
Cyber-Akuma is fought after the player defeats Apocalypse, in a 2 on 1 match. He has the highest stun and stamina rating in the game with a high speed rating to compliment. Cyber-Akuma has his own variation of the Raging Demon dubbed "Shining Gou Shock" that hits 24 times and is more damaging than the original. He can also perform an aerial variation of the Shining Gou Shock. The kanji associated with Cyber-Akuma is "destruction" (滅 Metsu?). However, unlike the usual denotations, it has no hidden spiritual meaning's and are simply the orders of his master, Apocalypse. Cyber-Akuma is playable using an in-game code, but cannot have a partner.
Cyber-Akuma's movelist featured most of Shin Akuma's attacks in the Capcom vs. series style, as well as attacks involving the launching of his mechanical right arm. All of his moves are renamed to more "mecha" sounding ones, as shown below:
- "I bring the chaos of death to all..."
- "I've been remade with real power!"
- "Kill... Destroy... That's all I know..."
- "My creator wants you dead. It is done..."
- "My new destiny is to serve and annihilate!"
- "There can be only destruction with me..."
- "There is no greater power than me..."
- "Your destruction is all that mattered!"
- Being meant to be CPU controlled character only, Cyber Akuma lacks a proper ending in the arcade version of Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. Instead, a picture of a furious Ryu screaming towards the screen appears with the message "Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter coming soon!" is shown as as a placeholder. In the home console ports of the game, Cyber Akuma was given the same ending used by the other secret characters.
