Nakajima aptly named the Ki after this impressive raptor for the fighter served the Japanese Army in higher numbers than any other army type. Wherever the army fought, the Hayabusa flew overhead. The fighter surprised western pilots when they first encountered it because intelligence specialists vastly underestimated the capabilities of Japan's aircraft industry.

Hideo Itokawa was the designer of the Ki, and his achievements would later earn him fame as the pioneer of Japanese rocketry. It is important to note that the Ki story did not start out as a success story. The first flown prototype in early January was a disappointment as it did not offer better maneuverability than the Ki, the purpose for which the Ki had been made. To correct the manueverability problems, subsequent prototypes were produced between and Major changes were made and many field tests were executed. The Fowler flap was implemented on the 11th prototype and brought about a dramatically enhanced performance in tight turns. The 13th prototype combined all these changes, and tests conducted with this aircraft ended satisfactorily.
