The Ashura were creatures of nightmare, and were called The Chosen. They were feared even by the most powerful of the Shadowlands. [1]

Creation Edit

In an alternate reality, the ashura were summoned from Jigoku by Fu Leng. Daigotsu managed to summon ashura from this alternate reality, but these creatures lived only for a week outside of the Realm of Dreams. [2]

Appearance and Abilities Edit

Ashura 2


These great warriors resembled handsome deathly pale samurai with beautiful moth wings marked with death's head patterns. They wore samurai ebony armor, katana, and with his yumi fired obsidian arrows. [2] [1] When they died, they exploded, dealing great damage. Their blood could also be used as an explosive weapon; a bottle of it would explode when broken. The ashura could fly, but they did not use their wings; the earth itself repeled them. [2]
