Akihiko jumps out a window to escape Ronin

In 2023, Akihiko and his Yakuza subordinates clashed with Ronin, who believed they did not deserve to survive the Snap and were hunting them down. Ronin killed all of Akihiko's subordinates and forced him out of his hideout in Tokyo, Japan, challenging him to a duel. Though he fought his best, Akihiko was ultimately no match for Ronin, who fatally injured Akihiko by slashing his throat. With his dying breath, Akihiko asked Ronin to help him before Ronin executed him by stabbing Akihiko with his sword backward, violently ending his life.[4]


Remembered by Hawkeye

One year after the Blip, during Christmas season, upon watching a NY1 television report about the apparent return of the "Ronin", Hawkeye experienced a flashback of how he murdered Akihiko as part of his last mission as Ronin.[5]
