A.K.I. is a dangerous poison-wielding fighter, trained by Street Fighter V’s F.A.N.G., who has a mean and sadistic streak. And she can be your master if you follow our guide.

A.K.I. (or Aki) is a deadly assassin who uses poison to paralyze and defeat her foes, before closing with her unorthodox movement and tearing you to pieces with her vicious claws. But this poison power is also very potent, and for your World Tour Avatar, you might want a drop of poison for yourself. Here’s how to unlock A.K.I., the Maniacal Mistress of Poison, as a Master in Street Fighter World Tour:

To unlock A.K.I. as a Master, first head to the training grounds of one of China’s other martial art masters in SF6, Chun-Li. There, speak to an old lady called Lao Mao, who’s complaining of being tired. She’ll give you the mission Good Medicine’s Hard to Come By. Give her an Energy Drink (any size will do) to energize her, and then she’ll tell you she’s also suffering from back pain. She explains that a man called Fang Fei has some herbal medicine that will help her pain.

Follow the mission objective to a location beneath the stairs of the MHM Stadium, and there you’ll find Fang Fei, who (of course) is none other than the deadly F.A.N.G.. However, Fang Fei doesn’t seem set on dealing any harm (although he does mention Shadaloo remnants, so take that how you will). He sends you to China to get ingredients so he can make the herbal medicine.

When you check on your World Tour map, you’ll now have a new location, Tian Hong Yuan, China. Traveling there for the first time will trigger a cutscene where you’ll witness A.K.I. deal with a pickpocket in her own unique way.

After this, speak to A.K.I., and she’ll give you the ingredients and allow you to become her student. You can conclude the mission by returning to Fang Fei, and then talking to Lao Mao.

A.K.I.’s Outfit 2 is a devilish red dress with black frills that looks somewhat inspired by the gothic lolita style. This turns A.K.I. from deadly to adorable in our opinion, and so is a must-have. To unlock it without paying the 50 Fighter Coins usually required, you can level up A.K.I.’s bond to maximum by gifting her various rewards.

A.K.I’s favorite gift is the Fan, which can be obtained by defeating the NPC Ioannis in Tian Hong Yuan, China with A.K.I’s style.. There's also Mallory, a level 77 NPC in the SiRN Building 3rd Floor who you'll need to perform a perfect parry on. NPC’s go on cooldown after you’ve fought them so you might have to space this out. Additionally, Prepaid cards from Nayshall are a good filler gift. A.K.I also has a unique one-of-a-kind bond item that can be obtained by completing the quest The Secret Sentient Sidekick in Metro City.
