Golden Mask Arc

Asuraman, with his distinctive six arms and three faces, initially appeared as one of the Devil Knights, Akuma Choujin who stole the sacred Golden Mask of the Kinniku Clan. He first fought Terryman in the Five Story Ring battles inside Warsman's unconscious body. In this fight he introduced a new version of the Kinniku Buster: the Asura Buster. If Terry were to have gone through even one Asura Buster, his body would've been pulled apart. Luckily, Kinnikuman jumped into the ring and cushioned the blow. Terry then broke off Asuraman's top two arms, causing his own arms to be on the verge of falling off. It is here that Asuraman reveals his ability to regenerate his arms by stealing the arms of others. As soon as Terry's arms fell off, they appeared on Asuraman. He tired a second Asura Buster on Terry, but Geronimo's tomohawk's (protruding through the ring above for Terry to grab) and Buffaloman's arms (which suddenly appeared on Terry) put a stop to it. The fight eventually went out of the ring and, after Terry restarted Warsman's heart, they scramble to make it back to the ring before being counted out. With his last ounce of strength, Terry used Buffaloman's arms to stop Asuraman from reentering the ring, causing the match to end in a double count-out. Because of this, he was the sole surviving Devil Knight when Akuma Shogun was revived, and when they both left Warsman's body, Asuraman engages Kinnikuman soon afterwards, and was soon defeated by an incomplete Kinniku Driver. As punishment for his defeat, Akuma Shogun decapitates Asuraman with his sword, and Asuraman merges with his master's being like the others.

Dream Choujin Tag Arc

Asuraman, as a part of the Stray Akuma Chojin Combo with Sunshine, takes part to the Dream Chojin Tag Tournament. The two demons, last survivors of the Golden Mask Arc concoct a plan to steal the Friendship Power of the Seigi Chojin by using some cursed dolls.

They manage to steal the very emotion of friendship among the Seigi Chojin, greatly weakening them, as a Seigi Chojin can't fight without friendship in his heart.

As such, Asuraman and Sunshine are able to beat effortlessly the Big Bombers and the New Machineguns, in the process turning the former friends Kinnikuman and Terryman against each other.

While during the fight against the New Machineguns Sunshine begins to believe in the power of friendship, Asuraman keeps holding to his ideal as an uncaring, evil fiend, and by observing how the attempts made by Kinnikuman and Kinnikuman Great to save Geronimo and Terryman ended up in their cursed doll being broken, he claims the breaks are parts of a profecy, and uses Sunshine's Cursed Roller to injure his foes where the dolls were broken: Geronimo ends up with a badly shattered right arm, and Terryman is forced to surrender his Star Emblems, or get Geronimo killed and himself decapitated.

The provecy comes to pass in a roundabout way: Prince Kamehame, the former Kinnikuman Great, succumbs because of the strain of helping the New Machineguns and decapitates Terryman, giving him the Kinnikuman Great to allow him fight with Kinnikuman even if he lacks the Star Emblems and Kinnikuman now despises him.

During the fight between the Muscle Brothers and the Stray Akuma Chojin Combo Asuraman is exposed to the Friendship power: he witnesses Kinnikuman and Terryman starting to mend their friendship, and sees Sunshine caring for him and even apologizing when the Cursed Roller ends up tearing off his prized right arms.

Asuraman tries to still act cold and uncaring, but when Prince Kamehame's arm, who used as a replacement, rebels to his will and leads to his defeat, starts believing in Friendship too, sharing with Sunshine the memories of Samson Teacher

He's then taken back to his kingdom to be healed, but escapes, still bandaged, to restore Terryman's Star Emblem and ask Harabote Muscle to reinstate The Machineguns as a team and allow them to fight together against the Hell Missionnaires.

In the Hell Kingdom, his mother rationalizes his discovery of friendship by claiming Asuraman found the Perfect Chojin a better target for his hatred than the Seigi Chojin.

Survivor Match for the Kinniku Throne

Asuraman appeared again, reformed, as a member of Kinnikuman Soldier's team during the survivor series to determine the new ruler of planet Kinniku. He fights his former trainer Samson Teacher, now Satan Cross, to avenge his friend The Ninja and ended the match in a draw, and watched as the remaining team members were defeated by Super Phoenix and his men in the Cube Match, leaving him the sole survivor. Later, when he and Kinnikuman's team ventured to the final arena, Super Phoenix activated a spiked ceiling trap to kill them all. However, Asuraman sacrificed himself by holding the ceiling up long enough for Team Kinnikuman to escape, and was impaled. He was later revived by Suguru's Face Flash along with the rest of Kinnikuman Soldier's team.

Kinnikuman Nisei

Soon after the conclusion of the Survival Match, Asuraman got married to his wife Ivonne, and they had a son, Shiva. From his birth, Asuraman trained Shiva to be a Seigi Chojin, but all of that changed


Sunshine and Asuraman's reunion

when Shiva accidentally discovered his father's past as an Akuma Chojin, wakening his dark side. This ultimately led to Shiva killing his own mother, and Asuraman killing his son in pure grief. As a result of this, he returned to his ways as an Akuma Chojin and joined General Terror and the Demon Seeds, splitting Meat into 6 parts and holding him hostage; in order to recover a body part, a Seigi Chojin must defeat one of the Akuma Chojin. After 4 of the Demon Seeds were defeated by their Seigi Chojin counterparts, Asuraman reveals himself and engages Mantaro and Kevin Mask in a tag team match alongside fellow Demon Seed VoltMan. After both Kevin and Voltman died, Asuraman fights Mantaro, but was eventually defeated. When General Terror tried to revive himself anyway with Meat's final part, his head, Asuraman surprisingly stopped the ritual, stating that even in battle, Seigi and Akuma Chojin must accept the agreements of their fight. As punishment, General Terror takes away Asuraman's youth and turns him into a withered old man. Asuraman was soon helped out of the Demon's Womb by Sunshine.
