Popular as Tank and Support, Akai has slowly become one of the fan’s favorite characters from the game.

So, in this article, we will give you some general information about the character. Also, let’s not forget about Akai’s best build MLBB.

General Info

Akai Mobile Legends Bang Bang

Akai Mobile Legends is one of the MLBB characters with the role of tank and support. Similar to Angela, Atlas, and Balerick, Akai is the best hero to choose if you want to roam around the map freely. One of the most noticeable aspects about this character is the huge total Health Point of 2769. Despite having a huge health point, Akai’s movement speed is quite fast at 260. This makes Akai a faster tank unit than other heroes such as Atlas and Alice.

Akai ML has four unique abilities. For passive abilities, Akai can use Tai Chi which makes him gain a 2-second shield with the price of 6% of his max HP. For the first skill, Akai can deploy the Thousand Pounder. This skill can deal up to 550 damage points while also giving the chance to slow or stun the enemy.

For the second skill, Akai can use Blender. With this skill, Akai could deal more than 500 (plus 120%) of damage while marking the target opponent for 5 seconds. For the ultimate skill, Akai can use Hurricane Dance. With this skill, Akai will remove all of his crowd control and spins like a tornado for 3.5 seconds. While doing this Akai ML could also knock back and silence the surrounding enemy while also dealing up to 540 damage.
