Akai: Battle for Metru-Nui Armor
"Even if it's the handful of people that I happen to meet on the streets or in my home, I can still protect them with one sword" -Akai
About this creation


Kimi wa Dare o Mamotte Iru (Acoustic Version) - Rurouni Kenshin OST 1


Back before Akai led the Toa Eldin, he was one of the three hundred Toa during the Toa - Dark Hunter War. Lhikan sent a message to all Toa to come aid Metru-Nui and the Matoran.


Akai, at the time, earned himself the title The White Ghost of Metru-Nui due to his swift reactions in the battlefield. All of his opponents saw of him was a white blur.


He led a small division of Toa, six members, during the war. Among them were Ashura, Bass and Meteor. They mainly did night missions for Lhikan.


The team and Akai were famous for their heroic feats. They were known for their recapture of Ga-Metru and their final stand at Ko-Metru. Akai said "our duty is to protect the Matoran and Metru-Nui and that's what we did. No need to thank us."


Akai's weapon during the Battle for Metru-Nui were his beam saber and beam knife. He forged Revolver years later.


Akai's beam saber was mainly used for close quarter combat. Its light beam was strong enough to cut through protosteel. Its power supply came from Akai's control over the element of light.


The same can be said for his beam knife. It, however was mainly used for quick assassinations and as a last resort if something happened to the beam saber.


*chach*
*BZZT-SHING*


Akai: You will not harm these innocent Matoran with even one inch of your bloodied weapons.


Akai: If you require and opponent I will fight you. If you want to taste the ground feel free to attack me."


Commentary: I wanted to go more in-depth with Akai's backstory so I decided to redesign him into this. I got the collar idea from Squall of FF8. I also was influenced by Kenshin Himura for Akai in his Toa - Dark Hunter War. This is why I used one of the soundtracks from the Rurouni Kenshin OST. So tell me guys should I keep Akai the way he is or go back to his original self?

Sleek, stylish look. A favorite Mask, too. Nice work on the elbow design: the 'Iseewhatyoudidthere' in me makes me pay compliments to that double-jointed design, looks like an easy 180-degree bend for him. Looks like an excellently-articulated MOC, on top of pleasing looks. Cheers!

Your design is very smooth, and the backstory is well developed. Well done.

I think this is fantastic. If there's a way to be able to have both forms, I'd do that. I'd even be willing to mail you my spare gray hau XD All jokes aside, this is definitely my favorite version as of yet. His slender and sleek look works very well.

I like this new look (or I guess I should technically call it old look) better, you did a great job! I would keep him this way.

Akai looks great as is and I love the idea of a younger version. You could incorporate some of his older design that would be cool and I highly recommend getting the white Hau . But as is this is great!

Personally, I think to match Squall's jeans more...you should either use rahkshi legs or make custom legs. However, I like the overall effect of Akai. :D OSSIM!

I like this version of Akai, but those sabers, they just remind me too much of a jedi. I deffinetely like the gunblades better. Also, I like the old torso a lot better too. I guess what Im saying is that it would look better if you incorporated some of the things from the old version.

Oh man this is insane! I love, love, love it. The new look really works. Personally, I feel as though Akai should be kept like this but incorporate some elements from his older versions, such as his gun blades and Zero form.

I actually prefered the old one. But it's alright, changes are good ! :D Plus, he's supposed to be younger here, which makes more sense. Love the beam weapons.

I like him the way he is! I love that cape you used, also I think that you should try using a white hau. Great self-MOC, as always!

This is really awesome! I really dig the beam saber and knife, but what if u made a pistol the knife could become a bayonette for?

Quoting Cody G Excellent work! I love the weapons, although I think getting rid of the dark green would be good on the sabre. Have you considered ordering a chrome Hau for Akai? It would be a little spendy, but I think the end result would look great.
im not that into the chrome Hau, but maybe a black or white one could work

Awesome, but...no gun swords?? Man, that was one of the things I liked most about Akai. :P Anyway, he's still epic like this. :)
