Name: Akira Konoe
Name of the Monarch: Akira the Hero
Prison: Osaka prison
Profession: President of the Madicce company
Akira Konoe is an athletic, tall, black-haired man. When in CEO clothing, he always wears a blue shirt with a white t-shirt underneath, along with a pair of matching pants.
His form in the Metaverse, on the other hand, appears with armor similar to that used by his favorite super hero, Zephyrman.
In combat, Akira wields a lightsaber and his face is completely obscured by a white helmet, the helmet in this case acts as a crown that when removed, releases all the desires contained within it, freeing the Osaka Prison.
Akira Konoe is a man with a misleading sense of justice, due to domestic abuse suffered by his father at a young age. After such a past, Akira began to esteem the hero Zephyrman trying to give meaning to justice.
He accidentally killed his father, and from that point on, Konoe developed a Macchiavellian line of thinking. According to Akira, in fact, the ends justify the means, justifying the use of oppressor methods against the oppressors themselves.
This thought of his leads him to approve the use of figures such as those of corrupt politicians and the EMMA app itself, created to be able to manipulate the Metaverse at will, managing to drive the entire population of Okinawa crazy.

Ability of Mech Zephyrus

Skill of Hero Akane
In the first, the one against the Mech Zephyrus, we advise you to hit it from the side, as its attacks always tend to hit whoever is in front of it. You will only have to worry about missiles and lasers, both airborne and land based.
Try to especially avoid the lasers, which will inflict a huge amount of damage if they hit you.
Remember to use Electric and Nuclear attacks, which are effective against the Mech Zephyrus, just bring in the party Makoto e Ryuji thus having access to their powerful abilities. You can even use Zenkichi, which will be useful to you through divine-type abilities.
You can use the turrets placed on the ledges to momentarily stun the Mech Zephyrus, allowing you to inflict free damage to the enemy.
Akira The Hero
In this second phase you will see it directly against Akira the Hero, who will use melee attacks using his lightsaber. Normally he will throw three blows with the sword, all avoidable given the slowness of his movements.
Don't think about looking for the fight from afar, as if you move away, Akira the Hero will activate a barrier that will hurl a wave of energy at you and damage you.
We advise you to try to beat him in close combat, using the same weaknesses of the Mech Zephyrus, namely the Electric and Nuclear type abilities. You may as well try to use Yusuke who through his ice-type abilities can freeze Akira the Hero
