Akame is an infamous member of Night Raid, the assassination team of the Revolutionary Army. Her use of the Teigu Murasame, a weapon able to kill any living being with a single cut, has earned her the epithet "Akame of the Demon Sword Murasame" among her foes. Once an orphan trained to carry out the Empire's dirty work, she now seeks to undermine the corrupt kingdom she helped build with her nearly unrivaled skill with a blade.

Stamina: Very high, she can keep fighting after receiving several injuries
Range: Extended melee range
Standard Equipment: The Shingu "Kiriichimonji" | The Teigu "One Slice Kill: Murasame"

Weaknesses: Murasame needs to cut the actual flesh of her opponent in order to apply its effect. This ability only works on organic beings that have a heart, rendering it ineffective against Armor and Biological type Teigu as well as machines, puppets, and dead things. | She tires out faster in Ennoodzuno form
- BoS Akame was able to kick a man 2-3 times her size quite a distance a way from her.
- In the same fight, Akame was able to destroy the mid section of a pillar with the swing of her sword.
- Can cross blades/fist with Wave whose strength was listed above.
- Was able to punch through an augmented soldier's face and helmet.
- She's strong enough to kick off the ground and rather skyscraper heights.
- [Amped]: While under the effects of the Perfector Pill, Akame was strong enough to crack through Esdeath's ice.
- [Trump Card]: Shattered Esdeath's Ice Sword with multiple swings and her Ice Walls with a single swing.
- The Ice Swords could go blow for blow with Stage 2 Incursio Tatsumi and the Ice Walls no-sold Tyrant Tatsumi's blast.
- [Trump Card]: Matched blows with Esdeath repeatedly, even putting her on the defense at time.
- Beginning of Series Akame was able to dodge automatic gunfire.
- BoS Akame was able to be FTE to multiple opponents at once.
- Was fast enough to create multiple after-images while circling an opponent.
- Deflected multiple shots from Ran's feathers, which are fired like bullets.
- Dodged lightning in the midst of fighting Esdeath and afterwards dodged a barrage of lightning being fired all over the area she is in.
- It was lightning since the character that calls it down actually has to create clouds to summon it, the second feat of "lightning bolts" are just faster and more destructive than the character's regular lightning.
- Akame was seen by Wave, who is right outside the Capital's inner walls, and proceeds to run after her all the way to the outer walls in a short unspecified amount of time.
- What made this feat so significant is the Capital is shaped like a circle covering 200,000 squared kilometers, giving it a radius of ~252 kilometers, which Akame ran the majority of.
- [Trump Card]: Dodged a volley of Esdeath's Weissschanbel and proceeded to blitz Esdeath before she could successfully dodge.
- [Trump Card]: Was able to keep up with Esdeath and trade strikes with her.
- For the previous two feats, Esdeath proved herself to be Stage 2 Incuriso Tatsumi's superior in speed and strength in their previous fight, Tatsumi being a character who could react/dodge/outspeed missiles that cross ~252 kilometers near instantly.
- Akame was punched by Wave and sent flying through multiple trees. She does get back up to fight, but she was notably injured and in pain afterwards.
- Wave was strong enough to not only dent part of a cliff with a punch, but alos crack part of Tatsumi's Stage 1 Incursio. Stage 1 Incursio no-sold a blast that destroyed multiple plateaus.
- [Amped]: While under the effects of the Perfector Pill, Akame was able to clash and take several hits from a prolonged fight with Esdeath.
- Esdeath at this point was able to physically contend and overpower Stage 2 Incursio Tatsumi, a character with multi-mountain level strength.
- [Trump Card]: Slightly injured from being kicked by Esdeath twice.
- Besides the multi-mountain level scaling above, Esdeath was getting more serious and using more strength as she casually knocked out and cut Tyrant-Tatsumi and no-sold his blast with her Ice Walls, when he now had multi-mountain busting feats.
- [Trump Card]: Brushed off being pierced by Esdeath's Weissschnabel, since right after she's pierced, she went jumping off walls.
- Esdeath's Weissschnabels were capable of piercing and knocking Stage 1 Incursio Tatsumi out unconscious earlier in the series as well.
- Akame has spent years training and being an assassin, to the point where she was the best assassin in the AgK Universe.
- Despite being in a universe where everyone has minor Pre-Cog, Akame was able to conceal her presence and even sneak up on characters proficient in it.
- Can empty her mind to prevent a telepathic character from reading her movements and mind.
- Akame, due to her training, always targeted her opponent's vitals and is still able to fight without using Murasame.
- When fighting against an armored opponent with no openings, like Wave, she repeatedly struck the same spot on the armor over the course of the fight until she eventually broke it.
- Deflected Ran's arrows precisely into multiple other characters to remove them from the fight.
- Was experienced with seeing through bluffs and did not hesitate to kill her opponent.
- Due to her training as an assassin she has a small immunity to poisons.
- Akame can turn off her emotions and enter a "WWW-bloodlusted" mode by saying the word "buried" to herself. As an assassin she was taught that in order to reach the pinnacle of her abilities she must be able to cast aside her humanity manually. She used this non-stop for the final arc of the manga, so it's in character for her currently.
Minor Pre-Cog: Characters in the Akame ga Kill Universe have a minor Pre-Cog ability that alerts them to the presence of nearby danger or murderous intent coming from an attacker.
- Kiriichimonji: A Shingu shown only in the prequel series, Akame Ga Kill!: Zero. It takes the form of a katana. It has been stated that wounds inflicted using Kiriichimonji will never heal; otherwise, it has no other abilities.
- One Slice Kill: Murasame (一斬必殺 村雨 Ichizan Hissatsu: Murasame): A long bladed katana with a blade that can kill a person with only one cut. Once the sword pierces skin, a poison spreads into the victim, killing them within seconds. Akame states that cleaning this weapon is very dangerous because of this ability. However, this ability only works on living, organic beings that have a heart, rendering it ineffective against Armor and Biological-type Teigu as well as machines and Yatsufusa's corpse dolls.
- Ennoodzuno: This is Murasame's trump card, said to only activate when it was ready. When activated, she gets black tattoo like markings on her and a dark aura. It increases Akame's physical capabilities to nearly Esdeath's level, albeit at the cost of shorter stamina than her normal state.
Key: Akame Ga Kill Zero | BoS Akame Ga Kill | MoS Akame ga Kill | EoS Base Akame ga Kill | Ennoodzuno Mode
Note: Kiriichimonji only negates regeneration on a Mid-Low scale.
Note 2: While Akame was paralyzed by Budo's electricity, this was more due to the nature of electricity paralyzing the muscles. The fact is she withstood the energy output overall.
