How to Use Akuma Layered Armor

Wearing Akuma Set Modifies Hunter's Voice

Aside from looking like Akuma from Street Fighter, wearing this layered armor also modifies the voice of your hunter to sound like Akuma - regardless if you chose the Male or Female Hunter!

How to Know if Your Sword and Shield is Sheathed or Unsheathed

Sheathed Unsheathed

Red Aura is not present

Red Aura is present

Since the Sword and Shield is invisible when wearing the Akuma Layered Armor, you might get confused if your weapon is sheathed or not. The best way to know is to check if there is a red aura around Akuma.

If there is none, your weapon is sheathed. If there is an aura, your weapon is unsheathed.

Throwing Kunai Becomes the Gohadoken

MH Rise - Akuma Street Fighter Collab Throwing Kunai Becomes the Hadoken

You do not need to be an SnS user to see Akuma perform his version of Hadoken called Gohadoken. You can easily see this move when performing a kunai throw during hunts!

The Aerial Version, Zanku Hadoken, Is Also Possible

MH Rise - Akuma Street Fighter Zanku The Aerial Version of Hadoken is Zanku Hadoken

Throwing some knives and kunais while airborne will execute a Zanku Hadoken!

Sword and Shield Silkbind Moves are Modified

Metsu Shoryugeki Becomes the Goshoryuken

MH Rise - Akuma Street Fighter Collab Metsu Shoryugeki Becomes the Goshuryuken

Doing a ZL + A when Metsu Shoryugeki is equipped as a switch skill will look like the Goshoryuken attack!

The parry animation for Metsu Shoryugeki also looks like Akuma's parry called Rakan! Gotta love the details!

Windmill Attack becomes the Tatsumaki Zankukyaku

MH Rise - Akuma Street Fighter Collab Windmill Attack Becomes the Tatsumaki Zankukyaku

After performing a combo then pressing ZL + A turns the switch skill Windmill into a Tatsumaki Zankukyaku!

New Quest Complete Screen

MH Rise - Akuma Street Fighter Collab New Quest Complete Screen

When you finish a quest wearing the Akuma Layered Armor, the quest complete screen will showcase the might and power of Akuma!
