When the party confronted Ashura, he was willing to make a deal with them, offering to give a world to each one of them if they'd ally with him. The party refused his offer and the archfiend fought against them, but was defeated. The party proceed to go through the door leading to Paradise, but they subsequently fall down the Tower via a pitfall.

It would later be revealed that the Creator had created Ashura for varying motives,[note 1] and thus was ultimately responsible for his horrors.

Ashura is the Japanese pronunciation of Asura. 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.


  1. In the Japanese version, it is because he was bored with a peaceful world, and created Ashura and instigated his carnage purely for entertainment. In the English version, he wanted to have humanity learn the concept of courage and created Ashura as a way to test them.
