WARNING! There are unmarked Spoilers ahead. Beware.

Asura the Destructor

Kratos is calm compared to Asura.
"I don't know how to save the world. What I do know is... if I save Mithra, THIS HELL WILL FINALLY END!!"
—Voice actors: Hiroki Yasumoto (JP), Liam O'Brien (EN)

The main character of Asura's Wrath. Once one of the Eight Guardian Generals of Shinkoku Trastrium, Asura was betrayed and killed by his seven comrades. They framed him for the murder of Emperor Strada, killed his wife, and took his daughter away from him. Full of rage and a desire for revenge, he comes back to life with his wrath as his only weapon.

But the object of his wrath is not only revenge, but also the suffering of their world, Gaea. When his anger escalates, his Mantra activates and transforms him into a godly six-armed warrior.

His mantra affinity is Wrath.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • A God I Am Not: Refuses to go along with Chakravartin's scheme to make Asura into the world's new god since he believes that the world doesn't need a god like him.
  • All Your Powers Combined: After he gets the mantra reactor of the Karma Fortress he is able to use the power of all the 8 mantras.
  • Anime Hair
  • Anti-Hero: Type III
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: As Asura the Destructor. He and Chakravartin's ultimate form completely dwarf even Sakra Devanam Indra Deus, and that REALLY says something.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: The Penny Arcade pre-order comic has this. Asura throws his house into space while looking for his keys; throws an oil tanker at a gas station, causing the town to explode when a moped cuts him off; punches the ground hard enough that the Earth swallows North America just because an old lady asks him for the date while paying for groceries with a check; and when he receives no-bubble tea with bubbles, he doesn't even tip.
  • Back from the Dead: Happens to him when he's betrayed and killed by the other demigods. Also happens 2 more times after. He comes back by sheer anger alone!
  • Bash Brothers: Does this with Yasha in Episode 18/True Episode 18. Bonus points for them actually being brothers-in-law. Subverted in that they don't even try coordinating attacks. They just both Spam Attack the opponent and manage to stay out of each other's way. This does occasionally result in moments of surprising synergy.
  • Badass: To the extreme. He even cancels out Shun Goku Satsu while fighting Evil Ryu and fights Oni Akuma to a standstill.
  • Handicapped Badass: Twice during the game he punches things so hard that his arms shatter. Running around with only his legs and forehead as weapons does not hinder any of Asura's ass-kicking.
  • Like a Badass Out of Hell: Or the Buddhist equivalent. Bonus points for doing it three times.
  • Berserk Button: Several but Mithra crying seems to be the most major one.
    • Crying in general will set him off, though it's not the crying itself that angers him. It's the implication that someone is making someone else cry.
    • Calling him a god is also not advised.
  • Big "Shut Up!": a great many characters can be silenced mid-monologue.
  • Blood Knight: Was this in his younger days, however after he got Mithra he mellowed out.
  • Bring It: His response to having a demigod the size of a PLANET send down his mountainous FINGER down to crush him. He wins.
  • The Berserker: The game is called "Asura's Wrath" for a reason.
    • As the game revolves around berserking and makes wrath a central theme, it was perhaps inevitable that it would be deconstructed: Asura's anger in battle is so obscene and unfocused that he doesn't really get any pleasure from actually killing things. It's like an itch that he can't scratch. At first the fact that he can't calm down bugs him, then it genuinely confuses him, and then it starts freaking him out. In the end, he's able to focus his anger, but can find no way to quell it and even starts cursing his power. That is, until he killed Chakravartin/The Golden Spider in Part IV Nirvana]]. Sure, he died too afterward, but he managed to save Mithra, and [[Go Out with a Smile that was enough for him.
  • Catch and Return: Does this with a god damned missile, a la The Incredible Hulk.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: A rare heroic example, Wrath form. He takes this form after his Berserker form took a blast from the Brahmastra, he is covered in black colored armour and looks cracked. Its concept art says that when Asura attacks in this form he does more damage to himself then he does the enemy. Although that doesn't stop him from gutting and head-stomping Sergei and putting up a decent fight with Yasha.
  • Character Development: His rage at being betrayed and his daughter kidnapped is tempered with indignation at how the innocent masses are treated. He later goes to attack the demigods not only to save his family and get revenge, but also to free humanity from their tyranny. Despite being a Jerkass par excellence, his instinctive concern for mankind puts him head and shoulders above the rest of the demigods, ethically speaking.
  • Colossus Climb: Does one on Wyzen, just to give him a good old fashioned punch to the face.
  • Cutlass Between the Teeth: The remains of Wailing Dark. He holds it in his teeth due to losing his arms again at that point in the story.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Asura has the option to Shut Hannibals Up during cutscenes.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Yasha is kind to and sort of supportive of Asura, but Asura isn't having any of it. It doesn't help that Yasha also keeps trying to outdo him in battle, which pisses off Asura who sees competition as pointless when in battle. After beating up the Earth's core together, Asura is somehwhat less of an asshole to Yasha, a massive accomplishment in itself. Then, Asura is shown to be saddened once Yasha finally dies.
  • Determinator: Keeps on fighting a guy who calls himself God after losing his freakin' arms! By the end of the game he's been killed, four times, and just keeps coming back on sheer fury and determination.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: "I refuse."
  • Disappears Into Light: After defeating Chakravartin, Mantra no longer exists. Because Asura's very life was tied into his Wrath Mantra, he dies like this, even when Mithra doesn't want it to happen. Definitely a Tear Jerker.
  • Eleventh-Hour Superpower: Mantra Asura. An even better example is his planet sized Destructor form, which is his main power source for the final battle even after not using it.
  • Explosive Overclocking
  • Evil Laugh: Lets one loose after having heard enough out of Chakravartin and before getting ready to fight him in ep 19.
  • God Couple: Was this with Durga.
  • Go Out with a Smile:
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: His preferred method of fighting. He needs nothing else.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Has this permanently since his resurrection. They only return to normal in the True Ending. See Go Out with a Smile above.
  • Handicapped Badass: He loses both his arms on a couple occasions, and has to fight without them. Of course this doesn't stop, or even slow, him at all.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Was this when he found Durga slain.
    • Even more so when The Girl is bombed to death along with her village.
  • Heroic RROD: His RAGE proves to be too much for his own arms to handle. Multiple times. Good thing he can regenerate almost instantly.
    • His own power becomes a major problem later on cause he can't go past his Mantra form without his own body being torn apart by his own power.
    • His Wrath form is set on this by default
    • This is fixed later thanks to Yasha implanting the Karma Fortress' Mantra Reactor into Asura.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Killed Chakravartin despite knowing that it would also be the end of himself.
  • Hot-Blooded: VERY much so.
  • Holy Halo: The cover of the concept artbook from the Game Stop pre order has him with one, shown to be present back before he was betrayed, and it's even grander and bigger than Deus or Mithra's.
  • Humongous Mecha: His final form, Asura the Destructor, practically reeks of this.
  • Idiot Hero: Played with, whenever Yasha's around, since Asura insists on killing things whenever Yasha tries to think. Suicidal recklessness aside, Asura's already done plenty of pontificating on his journey. At the end of the game it's brought around full circle. Yasha tries to reason that there must be a better alternative to Deus' plans, while Asura cuts through his hesitation (12,000 years of hesitation, as a matter of fact) by saying that ifs and hows were irrelevant, Deus needed to go down because the people of earth needed to be free of their torment—a fact he had learned only too well over the course of the game.
  • In a Single Bound: Uses his fist to propel himself to extraordinary heights.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The kindest word he has for his family is "Thanks" (though they sure as hell aren't fooled by the attitude). Nevertheless, he is visibly relaxed around them and fiercely protective of their safety, and it's otherwise clear that he loves them. Likewise, later in the game, though he's gruff to strangers and mostly yells, roars, or curses when he's irritated, he tries to protect The Girl when she follows him around and is deeply affected by the suffering he witnesses.
  • The Juggernaut: Oh good lord... NOTHING will stop him from rescuing his daughter. In gameplay, he's a bit harder to knock down than the typical beat-'em-up protagonist, and he truly lives up to the trope in Unlimited Mode, where he'll more or less Won't Work On Me anything up to and including boss attacks.
  • Ki Attacks: Shaped like his fists, and are his primary projectile.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Temporarily in the beginning of the game after being killed and thrown to earth 12,000 years prior to reawakening. And when he remembers...
  • Leitmotif: "Furious" and "One who destroys the ring" as Asura the Destructor.
  • Like a Badass Out of Hell
  • Lightning Bruiser: Much more so than any video game protagonist has any right to be. Somewhat More Bruiser than lightning though, when compared to Yasha, the other playable character. Asura is stronger, better with crowds, and can knock enemies around more easily, including bosses.
    • Interestingly, the final act of the game highlights another aspect of his Lightning Bruiser-dom, his sheer agility. He may not be as fast as Yasha, but he sure as hell is a lot more agile than him. This, more than anything else, is what allows Asura to outfight Chakravartin, who is borderline omipotent, while Asura is at his weakest.
  • Meaningful Name: Asura can be interpreted as "powerful" or "mighty."
  • Meditating Under a Waterfall: Before the final battle with Chakravartin.
  • Megaton Punch: Quite Literally, as he punches through Wyzen's own Megaton Punch so hard, he punches him into OUTER SPACE!
    • Not to mention the ones he pulls on later bosses, especially Chakravartin.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Up to six arms if he gets angry enough. Note that if you anger him to this point, you should start praying.
  • Never Hurt an Innocent: Holds the greatest regard for innocent life out of all of the Divine Generals. Even as Wrath Asura he focuses his rampage on the Deities' armies and the Gohma.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: One of his possible counter attacks against Deus. He also delivers a very satisfying one to Chakravartin at the end of their battle.
  • No Indoor Voice: He screams CONSTANTLY.
  • One Demigod Army: However, when he enters his Berserker form then he cranks this concept Up to Eleven by decimating an entire space armada down to just a handful in just a few seconds.
  • One-Winged Angel: Let's see
    • Normal
    • Vajra, his most common form.
    • Six-armed Vajra, same as Vajra only with six arms.
    • Mantra, the strongest form he can achieve without tearing himself apart. It is used with six arms in his final fight against Chakravartin.
    • Wrath, a Clipped-Wing Angel form that is quite powerful but also scorches his own body. How much sense and reason he have in this form seems to vary depending on how he entered it.
    • Berserker, an insanely powerful form where he looses all sense and reason where he destroys practically everything until he destroys his own arms.
    • The Destructor, a gigantic form that puts him equal to a god. He could only achieve this form after getting the Karma fortress mantra reactor inserted into him in order for his body to handle the enormous amounts of mantra.
  • Papa Wolf: Is trying rescue his daughter. And god have mercy on those foolish enough to get in his way. He's also rather protective of the human girl that bears a strong resemblance to Mithra.
    • Even prior to the events of the game, it was shown that he was unwilling to let Mithra become the Priestess since he refused to have her becoming a tool of war, despite her protests.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Also to the extreme. He's pretty much a walking nuclear missile silo before he enters Berserker state.
  • Physical Demigod: A REALLY powerful one, at that.
  • Primal Stance/Limp and Livid: His wrath form does this sometimes. This shows that he has completely lost it.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Up close and can actually use them as PROJECTILES!
  • Red Eyes
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Yasha's Blue. Visually expressed through their auras.
  • Rocket Punch: Somewhat, In his Mantra and Destructor forms he is able to shot massive amounts of mantra out of his elbows that he can use to propell him forward. He can also use it to enhance the power of his punches.
  • The Scream: Nearly the entirety of Episode 12's conclusion once he sees the corpse of the Girl.
  • The Stoic: Usually quiet outside of battle. But when he gets going, he really starts going.
  • Stop Worshipping Me!
  • Sucking-In Lines: His energy ball styled attacks as Berserker Asura does this.
  • Superpower Meltdown: Happens to him in the end of episode 11.5.
  • Taken for Granite: Happens to him in the end of Lost Episode 2. Not that it stops him.
  • The Hero Dies: Unlike his previous deaths, He dies for good in the final ending, only to be hinted at being reincarnated at some point.
  • Token Good Teammate: When he worked with the other demigods, believe it or not, he probably held the most regard for innocent life out of all of them. It's not really apparent until after the fact, though. Whereas every one of his teammates either doesn't have that instinct or suppresses it like hell.
  • Tragic Monster: Berserker and Wrath Asura, post episode 12.
  • Tranquil Fury: His Mantra Asura form. His anger hasn't diminished in the slightest, but he's much more focused in this form.
  • Tsundere: Type A, before being betrayed. Gentle and kind to his Wife Durga and Daughter Mithra, angry and usually very aggressive towards everyone else.
  • Unstoppable Rage: His whole character, but the second half of episode 12 is Up to Eleven.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He was used as a scapegoat by the other deities, which quick-starts the plot of the game.
  • Up, Up, and Away: Often does the arms out forward when flying or gliding in the air.
  • Use Your Head: When he has no arms, this is his preferred finisher.
  • You Gotta Have Platinum Silver Hair
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He doesn't seem to wear shirts that often, if at all.
  • Weak but Skilled: Surprisingly, this is one of his greatest strengths, if not the greatest. When fighting Chakravartin, the most powerful being in the universe, he gets kicked all the way down to his base form. When fighting Chakravartin's final form, instead of overwhelming him with strength, he uses his agility to outmaneuver and redirect Chakravartin's attacks.
  • Wipe the Floor with You: Does this to Wyzen at the end of the first part of their fight. Also does this to an Elite Mook in Chapter 9, and to Oni in Lost Episode 2.


S Wrth Durga 9553.jpg
"I will raise our daughter. You concentrate on making the world a safe place for her. Just do what you think is right. You're at your best when you're fighting for what's right. Please.
—Voice Actors: Kikuko Inoue (JP) Tara Strong (EN)

Asura's wife, Yasha's sister, and mother to Mithra.

Though gentle and considerate, she is a very strong-willed woman.

She is killed during Deus' coup d'etat.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:


This here is one Damsel in Distress that has nothing to worry about.

Asura's only daughter and the sole Priestess of Shinkou.

She is able to freely manipulate and amplify the demigods' source of power - Mantra. Deus kidnaps her in order to use her power for his own. Before Emperor Strada's assassination, she was one of the candidates to succeed the throne.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:


The first deity fight in the game.
"Asura the traitor; Asura the destructor; you do not belong in this world. Diiiiieeeeee!"
—Voice Actors: Chafurin(JP) Brad Grusnick (EN)

One of the Seven Deities. An arrogant militant. Was once a brute who never thought things through.

But once he gained new power as one of the Seven Deities, he began to stand out for his discriminating way of speaking towards the humans.

He goes out of his way to speak condescendingly. He is the powerhouse of the Seven Deities.

His mantra affinity is Violence.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Acrofatic
  • A God Am I: Constantly proclaims how powerful he and the Seven Deities are.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Bigger Is Better: Subverted oh so hard. Despite being nearly the size of Gaea itself, he isn't really any stronger than he was before.
    • It's even hinted this form is much Weaker than his previous ones, because it's hard to maintain any real speed he might of had before, making him pathetic compare do the other planet sized entities in the game.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • The Brute: Relies on solely his physical strength, and then pumps himself up with mantra in order to crush Asura as he's beaten.
  • Butt Monkey: Along with being the very first demi-god fought in the game (And the only one besides Yasha and deus to be fought twice), not only is he the first one of the deities to die, but even the other deities see him as nothing more than a big joke despite being the biggest of them physically.
    • Even his reincarnated form is this, as he's only a petty thug compared to the other reincarnated Demigods.
  • Calling Your Attacks: KURIKARA FUDO UCHI!
  • Climax Boss: Not quite as much as later bosses, but he does have chapter all to himself when he becomes the size of Earth itself.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: His Gongen form makes him ENORMOUS, but also severely limits his mobility, which bites him in the ass when Asura punches his finger so many times that it causes many chain reactions, and he's basically helpless.
  • Dumb Muscle: Pretty much his role with the Deities. Especially when he uses more Mantra than necessary just to end up weaker.
  • Fantastic Racism: Of humans.
  • Fat Bastard: And gets bigger the angrier he gets.
  • Fat Idiot: Even the other Deities regard him as such, Yasha using the exact Trope Name to describe him.
  • Finger-Poke of Doom: Yes. But the catch is? It fails.
  • Ground Pound: Does this to Asura during the second part of their fight, and then punches him repeatedly into the ground. It doesn't work.
  • Hand Cannon: Fires missiles from the side of his arms
  • Holy Halo: Best seen when he powers up.
  • Jerkass: He's described as being condescending towards humans, and in-game, he's shown to be quite the unlikable fellow.
  • Large Ham:
  • Megaton Punch: Tries this against Asura. He fails.
    • While falling from midair and dive bombing no less.
  • Oh Crap: His expression when Asura shoots down his flagship.
  • One-Winged Angel: He first starts out averaged size, then turns into Vajra Wyzen and then transforms again into Gongen Wyzen by releasing his Mantra.
  • Power Fist: More prominent in his normal form, where it is barely about the size of him!
  • Sequential Boss
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: You're able to interrupt him while he's gloating towards Asura via a punch to the face.
  • Smug Snake
  • Starter Villain: The first of the Seven Deities that Asura fights.
  • Stupid Evil: Even his allies call him an idiot for expending so much Mantra in one - failed - attempt to slay Asura.
  • That's No Moon: Nope, that's HIM.
  • Warmup Boss
  • Yellow Eyes


"Relax my son. Enjoy every moment. You fight, then you eat good food. You fight, then you drink fine wine. You fight, then you sleep with beautiful women. Hell, fight with Beautiful women! That's what it truly means to live."
—Voice Actors: Unsho Ishizuka (JP), Imari Williams (EN)

One of the Seven Deities, Augus is master and mentor to Asura and Yasha. Bold and big-hearted, Augus is the type to use his fists to do the talking for him.

He carries a giant katana at his side, but never uses it unless he's serious. He mainly uses his bare fists in battle. He sees fighting not as a means to an end, but as a purpose in life.

His mantra affinity is Greed.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • A Glass in the Hand
  • Affably Evil: Not exactly evil, as he's shown to prefer hanging out with his servant girls at his mansion, but he's still an opponent of Asura's who is nonetheless quite affable indeed.
  • Badass: Yep.
  • Badass Beard
    • Badass Grandpa: Oh hell yes.
    • Badass Normal: For a demigod, at any rate. Augus believes that relying on Mantra makes one weak, and that this is why Wyzen and Karlow were defeated by Asura. He doesn't use Mantra at all, which says something pretty scary about his overall capabilities.
  • Bash Brothers: He was this with Asura back in the day, according to him at least.
  • BFS: Holy crap.
    • Confirmed to be 380,000 Kilometers long. Eat your heart out, Sephiroth!
    • Hell, Gin would be jealous.
  • Blind Seer/Disability Superpower: Turns out in his profile he actually IS blind. Even Asura says it outright. Subtle but noticeable in-game, too, as at first glance Augus' eyes look just like the enraged Asura's, but lack the slightly reddish pupils that mark Asura's eyes. Augus' eyes are pure white.
  • Blind Weaponmaster
  • Blood Knight: Incredibly so, just about every other line that comes out of this guys mouth has something to do about fighting and how much he loves it. Punctuated by the line:

"I don't fight for good, and I don't fight for evil! I just fight!"


Walk the path you must, Asura...

  • Go-Karting with Bowser: What's the first thing he does when Asura's weak after just killing Kalrow? Take him to a hot spring resort to rest and relax just before their battle.
  • Half the Man He Used To Be: How he met his end by Asura using Wailing Dark against him.
  • The Hedonist: "I have had carnal knowledge of the fairest maidens in Heaven. I have partaken of the finest wines of Gaea. But nothing excites my blood more than drawing my sword!"
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Asura kills Augus with his own broken sword.
  • Holy Halo: Like the other deities, more prominently seen when powering up.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Only draws his sword when the fight is worth it. Prior to that, he'll fight only using his firsts or with the sheathed blade.
  • I Fight for the Strongest Side: as shown in episode 15.5's interlude, Augus wasn't interested in joining the eight Guardian Generals at first, stating that they were "weaklings". Then Deus came along and fought him to a tie. After the fight, Deus promises Augus that all battles will be like the one they were in if he joins his cause. Augus complies.
  • Implacable Man: Asura at base strength without any extra arms can't even move him a budge from where he stands.
  • Klingon Promotion: Inherited the position of Guardian General from the one he killed.
  • Large Ham: Just like his pupil.
  • Leitmotif: "Broadminded", and the fourth movement from Dvorak's Symphony No. 9, "From the New World".
  • Let's Get Dangerous: When he brings out his sword, which he's only used against Deus.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Like his pupil more bruiser than lightning, though with his sword out, he gains a lot more lightning.
  • Meteor Move: In the most literal, and most amazing, way possible. Must be seen to believed.
  • Named Weapons/I Call It Vera: Wailing Dark.
  • Noble Demon: Augus may only live to fight, but he wants Asura to be at the top of his game when he does. So he takes him to Kanazuki Spring to rejuvenate and relax for once in the game since everything hit the fan.
  • Old Master: Asura's and Yasha's, to be exact.
  • Occidental Otaku: His reincarnation in the Japanese version, who came to Japan to collect Japanese swords, and tries his best to speak Japanese to locals that look like former Demi-god minions.
  • Punch Clock Villain: Augus doesn't care at all for Deus' cause, and actually expresses some disgust at the idea of ending the war with the Gohma. In fact, he's the only Guardian General not present when Deus throws Asura from space.[1] He only works with Deus because he promised an endless slew of good fights, with them culminating in his final confrontation with Asura.
  • Sequential Boss: You fight him when he just uses his fists, and then when he uses his sword.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Though when it's done to him, he tanks it while looking amused.
  • Sink or Swim Mentor
  • Sword Beam: Spams this after unsheathing Wailing Dark.
  • Training Boss: Episode 3 in the tutorial level.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene
  • Worthy Opponent: Only two foes have ever been considered worthy enough (in his opinion) to actually use his sword, Deus and Asura. Dues himself clearly realizes the significance of this while witnessing the battle with Asura.
  • You Kill It, You Bought It: The 15.5 DLC reveals how Augus became a Guardian General. He killed one, which piqued Deus' interest in him. After the two fought, Augus agreed to serve him as long as all his fights were as great as the one they had (which was enough for him to take out his sword).


Kuja? is that you?
"Oh, how beautiful life is at its end. True beauty only manifests itself in death."
—Voice Actors: Nobuo Tobita (JP), Steven Blum (EN)

One of the Seven Deities and an admirer of the arts. He is Deus' (slightly psychotic) right hand man.

Sergei is constantly looking for all things beautiful. Despite his artistic airs, he never hesitates in making decisions, which makes him look cruel at times. He is the one who kills Durga, Asura's wife, during the coup d'etat.

His mantra affinity is Vanity.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:



-- Voice Actors: Chikao Ohtsuka (JP) Keith Szarabajka (EN)


The eldest of the Seven Deities. A cunning and sly tactician, Kalrow has others carry out what he has planned and rarely makes an effort to do anything himself. He is researching an easier way to manage both the humans and the Gohma.

Kalrow is quite skilled at fooling others with his illusions.

His mantra affinity is Sloth.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: His crimes are killing civilians, trying to kill Asura after wards, and His Reincarnation does literal Jaywalking, and is ratted out by Chun-Li for doing so.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Beam Spam: Has his entire fleet focus its Exorcism beams on Asura. Twice. It doesn't take.
  • Cruel Mercy: Thinks he's attempting this with Asura at first.

"Enjoy your new lease on life."



S Wrath Olga 9679.png

-- Voice Actors: Takako Honda (JP) Anna Vocino (EN)


One of the Seven Deities and Deus' adjutant general. Completely devoted to Deus, there is almost never a time when she is not seen by Deus' side.

She burns with hatred for anyone or anything that attempts to interfere with Deus' plans.

Olga speaks in an intellectual manner and a bewitching scent trails behind her wherever she goes.

She commands the fleets stationed in Gaea's orbit.

Her mantra affinity is Lust.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:


Hello, my name is Yasha and I'll be your Worthy Opponent for this evening. May I get you started with a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown?

-- Voice Actors: Junichi Suwabe (JP), Robin Atkin Downes (EN)


The second main character of Asura's Wrath. A Demigod and one of the Seven Deities, he is Asura's rival and brother-in-law.

Cool, calm, and collected, Yasha is well versed in both literary and military arts. He and Asura both joined the Eight Guardian Generals at the same time.

He is the older brother of Durga, Asura's wife. Though she is tragically killed in Deus' coup d'etat, Yasha's beliefs in the cause are stronger than his feelings for family. Due to the world's suffering, he always has a melancholy expression on his face.

His mantra affinity is Melancholy.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • A God Am I: As shown in his Badass Boast, though he proves to be more empathetic to the mortals than the other deities.
  • Anti-Villain: Is the only Deity who feels any form of guilt for his actions.
  • Badass: He manages to beat up ASURA for god's sake!
  • Badass Boast:

Asura: Who do you think you are?!
Yasha (calmly): God.

  • Bash Brothers: Does this with Asura in Episode 18/True Episode 18. Asura later lampshades it after his death.

Asura: You were always a brother, never an enemy.

  • Char Clone: Aside from the lack of blonde hair, his face mask, demeanor and level of powerful make him seem to be one.
  • Cool Corvette
  • Died Standing Up: In the middle of a punch.
  • Face Heel Turn
  • Flash Step
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Performs this on Wrath Asura.
  • Go Out with a Smile
  • Handshake Substitute: Receives a fist bump from Asura. Or rather, his corpse does, right before he dissipates.
  • Heel Face Turn: Fittingly enough, this happens when he can no longer hide his face beneath a mask.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Rips out his own Mantra to infuse Asura's Mantra Reactor... then duels Asura to the death to awaken his new power.
  • Holy Halo: Curiously averted considering the rest of the demigods, excluding Asura obviously, have one. Until he fights Wrath Asura.
  • Implacable Man: Asura's attacks don't even so much as faze him, until Asura headbutts him.
    • Possibly a Justified Trope, as along with the massive power upgrade the Deities have taken over 12,000 years, Asura didn't have any arms at the time he fought him after defeating and killing Wyzen. He was also probably low on energy as well.
  • Leitmotif: "Orphan wolf legend". It has three variations, "Wind", "Fang" and "Bonds".
  • Lightning Bruiser: In a contrast to Asura, he is more lighting than bruiser, though he is still really strong. He's a little weaker, much quicker, easier to control, and can keep pressure on single enemies like bosses more easily.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Believes in Deus' cause in spite of all the suffering that comes from it. Until he fights Wrath Asura. He even calls himself a demon for being willing to follow the cause.
  • Not So Different: In-universe, he has his moments of fury expressed while doing something amazing. In gameplay terms, he shares the same controls as Asura. He even admits as such in Episode 21.

Yasha: It seems your anger is rubbing off on me...

"Power without a purpose is meaningless and worthless. A purpose that is firm can change the impossible to the possible."
—Voice Actors: Masashi Ebara (JP) David Pizzuto (EN)

The leader of the Seven Deities.

A Demigod who once was the Commander of the Eight Guardian Generals. After betraying Emperor Strada and framing Asura for his death, Deus took the rest of the generals and formed the Seven Deities.

They rule over Shinkoku Trastrium as self-proclaimed gods. Deus takes much pride in being the "protector" of the world, and believes that his actions are righteous.

He has a brash way of speaking, though since he has absolute confidence in his abilities, it does not come across as offensive or unpleasant.

His mantra affinity is Pride.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

Deus: Over here.


The Shinkoku Forces



"Destruction, destruction, destruction."
—Voice Actors: Tomohiro Tsuboi (JP) Jon Olsen (EN)


"General Asura has gone mad!"
—Voice Actors: Nobuaki Kanemitsu (JP) Keith Silverstein (EN)


"Surrender your soul to us. It must be saved."
—Voice Actors: Ryusuke Obayashi (JP) Joey Camen (EN)


"All Troops, commence purification!

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

The Girl

"Everyone did nothing but pray. But he took action!"
—Voice Actor: Rie Kugimiya

A girl of the village that enshrine Asura's remains after his first battle with Yasha. She bears a striking resemblance to Asura's daughter, Mithra. Though faithful and worshipful towards Asura, after the Seven Deities massacred her village, she began to harbor hatred for the gods and is the only one to renounce them.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Everyone Calls Her Girl: At least the narration does.
  • Morality Pet: To Asura. She is the only one shown to be able to calm Asura down. And Asura goes to great lengths to keep her safe. When she dies he loses it, and goes completely berserk.
  • No Name Given
  • Sacrificial Lion
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To Mithra, right down to the japanese voice actress.
    • Also Asura supposedly looks a lot like her father.
  • Too Long; Didn't Dub: Just like the random villagers through the game, her dialogue is not translated, having no English VA and no subtitles in her appearances; this appears to have been a stylistic choice. However, you are privy to her lines in episodes 8 and 11's interludes.
  • What The Hell Villagers

Emperor Strada


-- Voice Actors: Ryusuke Obayashi(JP) Keith Silverstein (EN)


The 128th Emperor of Shinkoku. The highest authority in Shinkoku, he had the Eight Guardian Generals under his direct command. Without any gains being made in the endless war with the Gohma, the Emperor began to lose hope in their victory. He was betrayed and killed by one of his own Guardian Generals, Deus.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

The Gohma Forces

Tropes exhibited by these characters include:

Gohma Vlitra/The Will of Gaea

Rsz asuras wrath gohma vlitra 1880.png

The most powerful of all Gohma. It appears every few thousand years to wreak havoc upon civilization. It is the embodiment of the planet's rage, unleashing Gohma upon any who threaten to harm the planet.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever
  • Big Bad: The other big bad of the game, and the leader of the gohma.
  • Bishonen Line: Vlitra's Core. In a unique twist, it exists independant alongside the outer form on the earths surface.
  • Climax Boss: Possibly an even more standout version of this than Jubileus, if that is possible.
  • Eldritch Abomination: It certainly has no definitive age or Gender, at least.
  • Leitmotif: "Star's Outcry".
  • Magma Monster
  • Mirror Boss: The humanoid core looks like a bigger, even meaner version of Berserker Asura.
  • One-Winged Angel: After Deus is defeated, it steals all the accumulated souls the Deities gathered and grows even bigger and into an...
  • Orochi: It takes this form, with eight giant heads that has a wide enough circumference to tower over the planet, and is probably one of the biggest representations of this ever.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Hides inside the planet earth and is usually resting in order to prepare to come back out on the surface.
  • Sequential Boss: You fight his forces that come up from the earth first, then one of its heads, then all its heads and then its face, then its core in the earth's center.
  • True Final Boss
  • Unwitting Pawn: In the end, Chakravartin exploited Gaea's rage for his own purposes. While he gave the planet mantra and in turn the ability to summon the Gohma, it all the time did exactly what Chakravartin expected it to do.

The Golden Spider/Chakravartin, The Creator

Rsz asuras wrath golden spider 6192.png
—-- Voice actors: Hiroshi Otake, Hiroshi Ito (JP) Joe Hanna, Al Rodrigo (EN)

The ruler of Naraka. After Asura is killed, it guides his soul back to the real world. He is in reality Chakravartin, the omnipotent god that controls the world of Gaea. He is attempting to give birth to the redeemer to take his place (as the next god) through the trials that he puts the world through. No one on Gaea is aware of his existence.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

Back to Asura's Wrath
  1. Save Wyzen, who was busy being unconscious after he tried taking on Asura earlier
