- Shin Megami Tensei: if...: Recruitable Character
Akira Miyamoto seems to have a reputation as a troublemaker, as one of the disciplinary committee members says he is "up to something." He cares more about revenge than returning to the human world. The janitor also mentions that he wishes to become a boxer and the former wishes to train him to be a champion.
Shin Megami Tensei: if...
Akira is a student of Karukozaka High School, Class 2-C. He is a playable character only available after beating the game with either Yumi, Charlie or Reiko. His route is the "revenge" route against Hazama who sucked the school into the Expanse. Different from other routes of the game, Akira does not visit any kind of Sin World, but instead the Land of Nomos. As Akira tries to find a way out of the Tower of Confinement, he is put on the brink of death by Hazama and becomes possessed by the demon Amon. The Amon-Akira merged Akira, eventually slays Deity Emperor Hazama with the player's help. He then takes his place as the new Deity Emperor and stays there while returning the player to the human world, however the school remains in Makai.
Shin Megami Tensei: if...
Akira's stats are chosen at random from 4 different distributions:
- The name Akira means "bright, light, clear" (明).
- Akira's surname Miyamoto means "temple, shrine, palace" (宮) (miya) and "base, root, origin, source" (本) (moto).
- Akira's last name and his possession is a reference to Amon Miyamoto, a Japanese stage director. It is also a reference to the manga Devilman, whose protagonist, Akira, gets possessed by the demon Amon and gains supernatural powers.
- In the PlayStation version of Shin Megami Tensei: if… Akira has an exclusive theme ("Fated Enemy (宿敵)") that plays during random battles in his route. This composition is the origin of the normal battle theme of the Amala Network from Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, and was later remixed further to create the default battle theme of the Shin Megami Tensei: if… Costume & BGM DLC for Persona 5.
