Akuma is more of a hit and run style character. He can do a lot of combo damage and has great mix-ups (Vortex), so you can lean more toward rushdown if that is your preferred style. He has very low health and stun, so mistakes can be very costly for an Akuma player who carelessly rushes in. He has a lot of tools to get him out of trouble (Teleport for example) and his ground and air fireballs can be used to pester distant opponents.
