— Akira, on Haruo's name and emblem. (Godzilla: The Planet Eater)

Akira Sakaki (アキラ・サカキ?) was the father of Haruo Sakaki. Introduced in the 2017 prequel novel, Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse, he was presumed killed along with his wife, Haruka Sakaki by Godzilla but was later revealed to have survived in Godzilla: Project Mechagodzilla.

Akira wasn't able to save his mother, as she was instantly killed by Godzilla following the impact of a radioactive beam which hit the underground shelter she was evacuating to.

After the death of his mother, Akira had a wife, Haruka Sakaki and a son, Haruo. Akira and Haruka were presumably killed by Godzilla's atomic breath as they were evacuating to meet up with their son.
