* AntiVillain: Is the only Deity who feels any form of guilt for his actions. Later becomes a straight up hero after switching sides



* TheBrute:After Wyzen dies, Yasha essentially takes over this role for the Seven Deities.



* TheDragon: One to Deus, loyal to a faul, at first.
**CoDragons: With Sergei, appearing to have the role of enforcer to Sergei's assassin.



* Foil: To Asura. He focuses more on speed and finesse to Asura's brute strength and force. Not quite an EvilCounterpart but very much a contrast.
**Also one to Wyzen, the other Brute of the Seven Deities. Wyzen was a simple, thuggish, arrogant FatBastard with nothing but his own overwhelming size to offer and used Mantra as a crutch. Yasha meanwhile used nothing but his own strength to fight and was a much deeper character.



* HeroicSacrifice: Rips out his own Mantra to infuse Asura's Mantra Reactor, then duels Asura to the death to awaken his new power.

* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: His entire boss fight is about this, and was some of the first material published about the game. One of the largest bosses in video game history...and he's only the first boss fight.



* EvilCounterpart: He gloats about this, but is one to Asura along with a ShadowArchetype. He lacks the love Asura has for his family and few friends,and the depth of character Asura has. In a sense, he is what Asura would be if Asura's BloodKnight tendencies consumed him.



* {{Greed}}: His Mantra affinity. In his case, the greed for [[BloodKnight more battles]].

* DarkChick: Of the Seven Deities



** It really should come to attention as to how she's one to talk about loss in the end when it was she and the [[BadBoss jerk]] who didn't even want her among a host of co-conspirators, [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking who usurped a celestial armada and framed Asura for the death of its emperor, proceeded in ordering the bombardment of a village teaming with helpless innocent villagers who had done absolutely nothing wrong all to sate her groupies anger at said aforementioned adversary, only to needlessly waste a chunk of said people power source costing the gods several millennia's worth of resource powered by countless human lives; of which whose faith she & her fellow deities had been betraying for just as long a time period in order for their selfish ambitions to be met, all of which culminating in the excessive gashing mother Gaia across its hemispheres no less]]. And all of said tragedies centered around an entirely self-serving plan amounting to an operation all but [[AllForNothing doomed to fail]]. Yeeeeeah, hard not to feel [[KickTheSonofABitch abject joy]] at her undignified if albeit all too deserved end at the hands of a [[GodIsEvil despicable]] Demiurge.

* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Yes, that thing really is as a big as the image makes it out to be; in fact in terms of player size to boss size, it is ''the'' biggest boss in video game history to date.[[note]]Since we're going by player-to-boss ratio here, Gongen Wyzen and Chakravartin don't count: the former pops like a balloon before getting into an actual fight, and Asura grows bigger than ''Gaea'' for the latter.[[/note]]

* EvilCounterpart: Its final form, Vlitra Core, is modeled after Asura's Berserker form. Yasha lampshades it.



The omnipotent god that controls the world of Gaea and the true identity of the Golden Spider. He is attempting to give birth to the redeemer to take his place (as the next god) through the trials that he puts the world through. No one on Gaea is aware of his existence.

* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Claims to represent Samsara. If this is true, then he represents all the suffering in the universe. Explains ''so very much.''



* EvilCounterpart: To Asura. He's a glowing gold deity of life and creation, while Asura is a demonic red entity of wrath and destruction, and both are the only things in each other's power level. His final form is more clearly a counterpart to Asura's Wrath form, in the same way that the Vlitra Core was a counterpart to his Berserker form.

* EvilCounterpart: To Asura. He is visually everything Asura is not; a spindly, effeminate golden god with smooth flesh-toned skin and pure white eyes. He's a glowing gold deity of life and creation, while Asura is a demonic red entity of wrath and destruction, and both are the only things in each other's power level. Both fight with multiple arms and energy blasts, but Asura relies heavily on his physical strength and rarely uses his ranged attacks. Chakravartin only attacks physically after Asura provokes him into a VillainousBreakdown. His final form is more clearly a counterpart to Asura's Wrath form, in the same way that the Vlitra Core was a counterpart to his Berserker form.



** He also claimed him to be his successor and next ruler of Gaea, willing to be civil and reunite him with his daughter. Asura refuses, recalling that every bad thing he caused wasn't going to be forgotten by a peace offering, and proceeds to kick his ass. Asura far exceeded Chakravartin's expectations... not only in potential, but also in considering to be his heir.

* JerkassGod: Taken UpToEleven, and is even worse than the Guardian generals post treachery of Asura as the 7 deities ''combined''.
* KilledOffForReal: This takes the mantra using demigods with him but they are later seen in reincarnations approximate to how they were before while he, is not.
* LackOfEmpathy: He honestly doesn't even seem to understand why Asura hates him for unleashing the Gohma and causing eons of uncountable suffering on Gaea.

* OutsideContextProblem: The other antagonists of the game only considered themselves gods, but whose abilities had limits. Chakravartin, however, is an ''actual'' god, and whom not even the combined might of Asura nor Yasha could defeat, forcing Yasha to give the Mantra Reactor of the Karmic Fortress to Asura and take away his own life to get Asura to a level good enough to combat Chakravartin.

* SatanicArchetype: Chakravartin launches stars at the Earth during the final battle. [[Literature/TheBible You know who else used that tactic]]? Chakravartin claims to be the origin of all mantra yet by some coincidence the seven mantras [[UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}} line up closely with]] the {{seven deadly sins}}. His name means ideal universal ruler but it is a rough equivalent to Cosmocrator, one of old scratch's epithets.

* UnskilledButStrong: He's presumably never fought once in his life, or at the very least never fought a battle that he needed to take [[CurbStompBattle seriously]]. That said, he's {{God}}.
* VillainousBreakdown: It begins when Asura "[[TalkToTheFist extends his arm]]", but becomes especially apparent when he ditches his magic and attempts a PummelDuel with Asura after he lands yet another punch on him. Upon transforming into his Creator form, he regains some of his cool, only to lose it again [[ThisCannotBe in a different way]] when he really gets on the losing end.

* WeCanRuleTogether: Tries this on Asura numerous times, feeling that Asura is the only one powerful enough to replace him. Unfortunately for Chakravartin, Asura is fed up with gods...

* MonkeyKingLite: Asura is an incredibly powerful immortal that dedicates himself to RageAgainstTheHeavens and the gods that rule over it with an iron fist. He emerges from beneath a mountain (just as Sun Wukong was born from a stone on a mountain) and actively faces against Chakravartan (which is essentially an evil Buddha) after toppling the Seven Deities and their armies. And lets not forget [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PbHSaCBji4 this infamous little scene]].

* MessianicArchetype: He possesses a strong moral compass that puts the welfare of the innocent over his own ambitions, is unjustly betrayed by those he trusted ([[ObviousJudas the Seven Deities]]), has died and resurrected multiple times (all of which done by said mentioned formerly trusted), he is given the option to rule the world by [[SatanicArchetype Chakravartin]] (an offer which he denies almost instantly), and sacrifices himself to destroy Chakravartin and wipe out all mantra (which coincidentally coincides with the SevenDeadlySins) and bring the world and its people into a new age.

* IdenticalStranger: According to Ahria, Asura bears an uncanny physical resemblance to her father. This, alongside sharing her hatred of the Seven Deities and the MartyrdomCulture they spread amongst the humans of Gaea, is a major reason why she follows him around.



A girl of the village that enshrine Asura's remains after his first battle with Yasha. She bears a striking resemblance to Asura's daughter, Mithra. Though faithful and worshipful towards Asura, after the Seven Deities massacred her village, she began to harbor hatred for the gods and is the only one to renounce them.

* BrokenPedestal: All those innocent humans dying senselessly at the hands of the gods they worshipped, among whom were Ahria's father, led to Ahria's [[NayTheist rejection of the Seven Deities]] as well as the MarytrdomCulture that the human population had been indoctrinated with by them.
* DoomedHometown: Her hometown was attacked sometime ago by Gohma, prompting the Seven Deities to purify the area... without care for any humans who got caught in the crossfire. While the village wasn't completely wiped out, the massacre left its mark on Ahria, who went on to become a NayTheist.



* {{Naytheist}}: Unlike other humans, she curses the Seven Deities for the sacrifices they demand, but worships Asura as a protector god of sorts.

* NoSocialSkills: At the end of the day, this is Asura's biggest flaw. On the battlefield, Asura is perfectly at home punching and screaming at the top of his lungs. But take him off the battlefield and put him in the real world, you might as well be putting him in the jungle. Asura has no clue how to interact with others without violence or the threat of violence. When talking to others, Asura is gruff and abrasive, usually telling them to shut up or get out of his way. The only people he'll show any real affection towards are his family, though they know he means well. Asura himself his fully aware he's not a people's person and it greatly irritates him. He wants to be a good family man, but he doesn't know how and he bemoans the fact that the only way he knows how to comfort Mithra is to punch whatever makes her cry.

He never once thinks to just ''apologize'' to Asura for the kidnapping of his daughter or the death of his wife, instead opting to go on about how what he and the other Seven Deities will lead to eternal paradise. Not a very smart thing to do considering that he's doing this ''as Asura's crumpling his escape pod like a tin can.''
