Spike the Devil Man was originally Fortuneteller Baba's strongest fighter, but was bumped down one rank by Grandpa Gohan.Spike's Devilmite Beam has the unusual ability to make people explode into pieces by expanding the evil inside of their heart; apart from that, his skill as a fighter is unbelievable, having won the World Martial Arts Tournament twice in the past. He gave Goku a run for his money and tried to blow him to shreds, but unfortunately for him, he didn't know that Goku had a pure heart. He returns in Dragon Ball Z to give his energy to Goku's Super Spirit Bomb. It should be noted, however, that he only does this when Hercule tells him and not when Vegeta or Goku tells him. He also has a cameo appearance on a billboard in the Trunks Saga. His Japanese name is a pun on Akuma (悪魔 "devil").
It is never revealed if he is an actual demon, or simply a powerful human, however since he can use his wings to fly, they can be assumed to be real and not just part of his suit.
- Note: His bio in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, refers to him as a "genuine" demon of the Underworld (where it is refering to HFIL or Demon Realm is unknown). There is also "special dialog" between him and the Demon King Dabura if they dual one another. This and other special dialog further indicates he is a demon and he even refers to HFIL (Hell) in one of them (meaning he may be a demon from hell).
A mystical energy attack he fires from his hands that ensnares the opponent in electrical energy, temporary paralyzes the opponent (it can be used before firing the Devilmite Beam, to ensure a direct hit).
Devilman can fly at will, but if it is due to his wings or his ki (or possibly a combination of both) is uncertain.
Is a magical ability to create objects from seemingly thin air. He uses it to create a trident (Demon Fork) for his fight with Goku.
Fork Attack Edit
Uses Bushitsu Shyutsu Gen Majyutsu to create a pitch fork, which he instantly throws at his opponent. The fork explodes upon hitting its target (like a missile).
the most basic form of energy wave.
A rushing attack where he uses his fork to repeatedly stab (and torment) the opponent.
In Budokai Tenkaichi 3, there is a "What-If Story", where he fights Frieza and King Cold (who are waiting for Goku to return to Earth, so they can kill him). Spike the Devil Man is surprisingly able to defeat the pair (as well as two other soldiers), thanks to his Devilmite Beam Technique.
- Note: In Budokai Tenkaichi 3, he is one of the stronger Dragon Ball era fighters
- In an issue of Special Jump, Akkuman is credited with having a sister named Majon. However, this piece of information never appears in neither the manga nor the anime.
- On Budokai Tenkaichi 3 its a what-if battle with devil man and frieza and king kold but it is shown that they never knew each other before.
