Rakan (羅漢 Rakan?, lit. Arhat) is Akuma's V-Skill in Street Fighter V.

High and Mid Parry Arcade-Button-MPunch + Arcade-Button-MKick
Low Parry Arcade-Stick-Down + Arcade-Button-MPunch + Arcade-Button-MKick


Akuma strikes a defensive stance and similar to Ryu's Mind's Eye, can parry a single incoming attack. A successful parry will result in Akuma taking provisional damage. He can follow-up the move with the Rakan Gosho or the Rakan Gokyaku.

Rakan Gosho Edit

After the V-Skill is activated, pressing the punch button allows Akuma to perform a palm strike named Rakan Gosho (羅漢豪掌 Rakan Goushou?, lit. Arhat Great Palm). The speed of this move allow it to be better used as a punish from a opponent mistake.

Rakan Gokyaku Edit

After the V-Skill is activated, pressing the kick button allows Akuma to perform a upward kick named Rakan Gokyaku (羅漢豪脚 Rakan Goukyaku?, lit. Arhat Great Leg). The move launches the target to the air and is a safe starter for an air combo, should it connect.
