The Ashura is a ninja sword in Final Fantasy XII. Its license costs 40 LP in the original and 100 LP in the Zodiac versions where it can be used by the Shikari. As it is not possible to unlock all ninja sword licenses in the same board in the Zodiac versions, the player could forgo Ninja Swords 1 that Ashura is part of.
Asuras (Sanskrit: असुर) are mythological lord beings in Indian texts who compete for power with the more benevolent devas (also known as suras). Asuras are described in Indian texts as powerful superhuman demigods or demons with good or bad qualities.
Asura is known as Ashura (阿修羅, Ashura?) in Japan, mostly portrayed as a six-armed god wielding different weapons in each hand.
