- "Don't let your power make you arrogant! Your true enemy is always close by: the weakness... of your own heart."
- ―Daigo's response to Ryuga valuing the lives of Knights and Humans equally and believing that Garo's power can save everyone[src]
Daigo Akizuki is a Makai Knight who first appeared in the Garo pachinko game: Makai Decisive Battle Gaoh and then appeared officially in the Garo series, Garo: Gold Storm - Sho. He bears the title of Giga the Beast Knight.
Gold Storm Shou
Daigo first appeared to aid Ryuga Dougai in defeating a mass breakout of Horrors in an old abandoned building. He was annoyed at first that another Makai Knight was in his territory and advised Ryuga to leave but learned that he was Garo. After enacting a plan to sink the building into the Makai Realm to remove it before it became a Gate, the three learn someone is trapped inside. Ryuga risked his life to rescue the homeless man and Rian tried to stop the spell, despite Daigo objecting to it. During his attempts to protect him, Ruyga recklessly tosses the Garoken out a window to kill one Horror. The homeless man and Ryuga become surrounded by Horrors on the roof, with Daigo arriving to save them and return Ryuga's sword. He dons his Giga armor and holds off the Horrors while the two jumped to safety. After finishing the Horrors and escaping the falling building, Daigo lectures Ryuga about throwing his life away so easily. Rian suspects that he is a Makai Instuctor based on his mannerisms but he denies this. He then leaves after telling Ryuga that a Makai Knight's heart is thier greatest weakness.
Daigo was on the hunt for a Horror and then learned it had gone to a high school that a former Makai Priestess was attending. He tried to enter the school, but the security guard stopped him and blocked his way in. He then decided to pose as a substitute PE teacher to locate the Horror and informed the young former priestess Haruna of his intent. After Haruna uncovers who the Horror is, Daigo transforms and quickly slays it, then leaves the school to continue his duties as a Makai Knight.
Giga, The Beast Knight
As a Makai Knight, Daigo is given the title of The Beast Knight. As such, he has the ability to don the bulky Giga Armor. He does this by swinging his Makai Axe around him, forming a slanted circle, before slamming the weapon to the ground. This circle opens a portal where the armor descends and equips on him, completing the transformation.
This armor comes with a two-prong claw gauntlet attached to its left arm, adding more offensive prowess to Daigo.
- Jushinfu - Daigo's personal weapon, a Makai Axe. When donning his armor, the axe becomes much larger, capable of destroying multiple Horrors in one swing.
- Daigo Akizuki is portrayed by Tomohito Wakizaki.
