Delta and Dante were students of Valt Aoi at BC Sol. In Episode 2 of Beyblade Burst Rise, it was shown that while Dante considers Delta his friend, Delta does not and even called him a nuisance. The first episode also showed Delta questioning why Valt chose Dante to battle against his new Slash Valkyrie instead of him, hinting that he may be jealous of Dante.
- His overall appearance is similar to that of Shu Kurenai.
- His Japanese surname, "Akane" means "deep red". Likewise, his English surname means "pomegranate", which is also a shade of red.
- He is the second Burst character after Phi to be named after a letter in the Greek alphabet (Δ).
- Delta is the second left-handed character in Beyblade Burst Rise, the first being Fumiya Kindo.
- Delta is one of seven Bladers in Burst to use a ripcord launcher instead of a string launcher; the first five being Hoji and Koji Konda, Haruto Aota, Hae-jin Oh, Phi, and Dante Koryu. If one counts the Sword and Digital Sword Launchers as ripcord launchers, that would make Delta the eighth Blader to use a ripcord launcher; the sixth Blader being Xander Shakadera.
- Delta is the fifth character to have a dual-spinning Beyblade, though Delta has a Layer Base for each spin direction.
