Enter Smug and his latest tier list, ordering the game's most basic supers in terms of their overall effectiveness.

F.A.N.G from Street Fighter 5 has been confirmed to be A.K.I.'s master in Street Fighter 6

Though A.K.I. is the first newcomer DLC character coming to Street Fighter 6 (on September 27), it felt like we already knew some details about A.K.I. Upon first seeing her and hearing her name, we're immediately made to think that she has some sort of connection to F.A.N.G from Street Fighter 5. While this shouldn't be too surprising for fans, A.K.I.'s connection to F.A.N.G has at last been fully confirmed thanks to the PlayStation Blog post about A.K.I. in Street Fighter 6.

"A new character to the Street Fighter series, A.K.I. snakes through life only to please her outstanding and phenomenal master F.A.N.G from Street Fighter 5," said the PlayStation Blog. "Under orders to dig into the remnants of Shadaloo, she finds herself infatuated with the powers that be."

Street Fighter 6's Director explains how A.K.I. was designed to be a 'white snake that carries poison'

Capcom recently released A.K.I.'s gameplay trailer, featuring our first real look at what A.K.I. can do. As expected, she's a poison user like F.A.N.G, though her playstyle and mannerisms appear to differ quite a bit compared to that of her master's.

Following the trailer's debut, Street Fighter 6 Director Takayuki Nakayama went over some interesting details regarding A.K.I. during the PlayStation Blog. Needless to say, it's explained why A.K.I. was designed with a pale complexion.

The internet LOVES A.K.I. already; check out all this wonderful fan art for Street Fighter 6's newest character

She may not (or may) quite be waifu material, but A.K.I. has most definitely garnered positive attention in her duo of debuts as we recently got her teaser and full gameplay trailers. She's more than F.A.N.G (her predecessor in both story and gameplay design) 2.0, though she is very clearly connected to him. Perhaps it's the best parts of F.A.N.G fans are hoping to see as they approach the character with a pessimist outlook that A.K.I. will be a success where he wasn't so much.

Some of that point of view is represented in our fan art roundup gallery as we get to see Street Fighter 6's newcomer through the eyes and appreciations of talented artists, literally from around the globe.

The greatest juggling act in Street Fighter 6 history

You'd think a character like Rashid, with his high-flying re-jump maneuvers and wind techniques, would be the one juggling opponents for days on end, but that's not what happened in the recent bout between NASR|BigBird and BLG|DingChunQui.

The round begins and DingChunQui's (DCQ) aggressive JP goes immediately on the offense; just 17 seconds later, he's scored himself a perfect having juggled BigBird's Rashid from one side of the stage to the other in a most vicious sequence you'll want to watch at least a few times.

Street Fighter 6 match between Daigo Umehara and Justin Wong is VERY Evo Moment 37-y

The most legendary match in all of competitive fighting games happened some 19 years ago when BST|Daigo Umehara brilliantly and perfectly countered his way out of near certain death against the might Justin Wong at EVO.

Street Fighter 6 Director explains why A.K.I.'s hair looks so crazy

Street Fighter's newest comer, poison assassin A.K.I., is captivating at first glance. That said, her hair may or may not be a little on the weird side for some fans. Few would say it's a deal breaker on their quest to fix her into being the perfect waifu, but it does come across as perhaps a tad distracting.

There's very much a reason for her canopy-like locks, however, as Street Fighter 6 Director Nakayama Takayuki recently offered a quick explanation for the particular design on Twitter.

Fan creates artwork featuring adorable interaction between A.K.I. and E. Honda, the official Street Fighter 6 Twitter recreates it in-game

Capcom pulled the curtain back on Street Fighter 6's next DLC character, A.K.I., earlier this week by releasing her full gameplay trailer. Fans quickly took notice of some of her interesting and unique animations, including her Sinister Slide which sees her slither across the ground on her back for a creepy stance maneuver that lets her follow up with various attacks.

Artist kaituburing used this low-to-the-ground slither as inspiration and an opportunity to put together an adorable piece of fan art that imagines what it might look like if E. Honda and A.K.I. locked eyes while the sumo headbutts over it. The artwork was so good, in fact, that the official Japanese Street Fighter Twitter account actually recreated it in-game and shared it on social media.

Here's how A.K.I.'s poison mechanic works in Street Fighter 6

Capcom surprised fans with a spontaneous release of A.K.I.'s official gameplay trailer last night. The upcoming Street Fighter 6 DLC character showed off what she is capable of in the latest entry of the long-running fighting game franchise, taking some inspiration from her master, Street Fighter 5's F.A.N.G, but also very much demonstrating that she is her own unique contender.

Though the gameplay showcase was certainly telling, a PlayStation Blog entry that followed after its release further detailed what A.K.I. is capable of and answered some of our lingering questions.
