EquipmentAs one would expect from a talented boxer, Akihiko's weapons of choice are gloves and knuckles. His weapon class is referred to as "fists," which allow him to get close to enemies quickly. Additionally, his weapons have high accuracy but are a bit lacking in attack power. Akihiko will deal strike damage when attacking with just his fists. He joins the party with brass knuckles, but is able to equip any gloves/knuckles the player finds through Tartarus, fusion or simply from purchasing at the police station. The following is a list of Akihiko's equipment (currently based on Persona 3 FES) and where to obtain it. They are listed from lowest to highest attack power.
