Initial D Takumi's Eight-Six in Video Games

Well Initial D has influence automotive lifestyle. Many replicas of Initial D cars such as Takumi's 86 or Keisuke's FD3S. And if you play some racing games, you'll see a replica of Takumi's 86! Let's see them.

Gran Turismo Series (3-5)
In Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec until Gran Turismo 5 (except in GT4 Prologue and GT5 Prologue) there is a tuned car based on AE86 Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex called Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex Shuichi Shigeno Version. The name of the car taken from the creator of Initial D,Shuichi Shigeno. The call resembles Takumi's 86. Only minus the fujiwara tofu shop sticker and the fog lights. The performance is unknown. In GT4, you can found this car in late 90s used car shop.

Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift (Kaido Battle)
There is a rival who modeled after Takumi Fujiwara named Lightning Shift. His real name is Takuya Hagiwara and appears as a trickster (type of the rivals in TXRD) in Hakone. Instead of delivering tofu, Takuya delivering milk to hotel. In TXRD2, you can drive his car if you befriend him (his car is labelled as special car that isn't sold in neither new car shop or used car shop)

Racing Battle C1GP
An unlockable car called Ramen Delivery AE86 was modeled after Takumi's 86. Now imagine, you drift while you delivering a noodle in the mountain. Challenging, isn't it?

Battle Gear 3

In BG3 there is a bunch of Initial D character's replica. Takumi's 86 was called Sprinter Trueno Mecha Tuned in the game. Also if you battle with the AE86 mecha tuned in Battle Gear 3 the name of the driver is TKMI (if i'm not mistaken) which stands for Takumi. The 86 was similar to Sprinter Trueno SS version in Gran Turismo but with the fog lights. This car is also appears in Battle Gear 2.

GT Advance 3
