I think hes a being not of this earth or time. His face doesn't look like a modern human, almost primitive.

Nah, he was actually a normal human at one point, but was completely taken over by evil intent ("dark hadou" or whatever the fuck). True story.

I always assumed he was Japanese like Ryu, though. Remember that Evil Ryu's skin has a similarly dark hue to it.

So the darker you get the more evil? Is that why Balrog and Birdie are bad guys? Looking a bit culturally insensitive their capcom, and long before RE5 :P

Akuma birth place is Japan.
Yes shin Akuma is an alternate, more powerful version of Akuma. Story wise, Shin Akuma is merely Akuma using the full extent of his power, compared to the "in-game" version which is Akuma voluntarily holding back his power to avoid ending fights prematurely. In the Capcom VS SNK storyline, a different form of Shin Akuma appears. This form of Akuma achieves a new level of power when a dying Rugal Bernstein pours his Orochi power into him. Shin Akuma is Evil Ryu's final boss in Street Fighter Alpha 3... "Shin Akuma" means "True Demon."

I believe Akuma stays outdoors for most of life and somewhat darken skin color,

Why is Akuma hair is super red, :).

Dude, his skin is just dark. He's been in the sun too long or his momma was from the Philipines or something.

FYI, Ken is white because he is from the USA where white people come from.
