The leader of the Seven Akuma Chōjin and the Devil Knights. His true identity is that of the former first Perfect Origin, Goldman, known as the God of Battle (戦いの神, Tatakai no Kami). He frequently quarreled with his younger brother Silverman and the two eventually engaged in a sword battle, a battle which ended with the two of them simultaneously beheading each other. His soul was placed inside the Golden Mask (黄金のマスク, Ōgon no Masuku) and many years later aligned himself with Satan and became Akuma Shogun.
With his finishing move, Hell's Nine Point Seal, he attacks the nine vital points of the Chōjin body. His trademark Hell's Guillotine is part of this, attacking the neck. He obtains his flesh body when the Devil Knights unite undeneath his mask. He has the ability to freely alter the hardness of his body, from a Chōjin Hardness (超人硬度, Chōjin Kōdo) level of 10 (the highest in the Chōjin world), known as Diamond Body (ダイヤモンドボディ), to Chōjin Hardness 0, Snake Body (スネークボディ). Coupled with the fact that no body exists within his armor, there are very few techniques that can actually harm him. His weak spot is his head because he shows signs of pain when he got hit in the head during his fights with Buffaloman and Kinnikuman.

Long ago, two gods, Goldman and Silverman (gods of war and peace) were asked who was stronger, and in the resulting conflict everything of their bodies were destroyed but their heads, which became the Silver and Gold Masks, sacred relics of the Kinniku Tribe. Goldman made a bargain with Satan for a body with which he would kill Seigi Chojin.
After Geronimo's fight with Sunshine, all the Akuma Knights came into Akuma Shogun. He then killed Geronimo with his hell guillotine and then made Asuraman fight Kinnikuman. After Asuraman lost Akuma Shogun made him get inside his armor. He was going to fight Kinnikuman but Buffaloman got in the way so Kinnikuman could perfect the Kinniku driver.
Later on, in Kinnikuman Nisei, Asuraman attempted to revive General Fear (恐怖の将 Kyōfu no Shō)-- namely Akuma Shōgun. However, before he is about to be fully revived, Asuraman has a change of heart as a result of his match with Mantaro, and destroys General Fear.
