The long version: Asura is one of the eight Guardian Generals, demigods assigned to protect the world of Gaea and its inhabitants from the [[TheHeartless Gohma]]. After their latest victory, the other seven demigod generals kill his wife, kidnap his daughter, and frame him for murdering the emperor, all in an attempt to destroy the Gohma once and for all. When Asura confronts them, he is killed and cast down to [[TheUnderworld Naraka]]. But a mere thing like death cannot keep a demigod like Asura down for long, and quite understandably, he is pissed. After spending several millennia climbing out of Naraka and emerging into a very changed mortal world, Asura sets out to rescue his daughter and [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge get his revenge]] on his fellow Guardian Generals, who now call themselves the Seven Deities.

** Yasha. On the outside, the guy's a BadassPacifist who [[spoiler:along with Deus]] wants nothing more than to exterminate the Gohma from threatening the world. Just don't waste countless lives on something pointless if you don't want a ki slash through your torso.

** DirtyOldMan: During his speech to Asura in the hot springs, one of the things Augus says along with fighting is sleeping with beautiful women. [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs Fighting with them, too.]]
* TheCorruption / TheHeartless: The Gohma, which are stated as being corrupt, impure beings that take the form of rocky and [[MagmaMan lava-esue]] animals. The strongest of them all are planet-sized, and can easily destroy planets casually, and nearly destroyed mankind. It took the combined power of Asura and the other Demigods to defeat them the first time around, but they make a comeback. This cycle has been going on for some time even before the game's story begins.

* DarkIsNotEvil[=/=]TheSacredDarkness: Technically, the Gohma are natural, being Gaea's defense mechanism as the balance was disrupted by the removal of souls. Unfortunately, this puts them at conflict with humanity.

* SpaceBattle: Several occur throughout the game. The most epic one of all is in the DLC Part IV, Nirvana.

* JerkassGods: Played around with quite interestingly. The Demi-gods treat humans as a lower class, but most of them didn't act like jerks towards humans (with the possible exception of Wyzen post becoming a guardian general). This changes after Asura is betrayed by his fellow guardian generals, who act like this to a degree even by JerkassGod Standards. [[spoiler:They turn humanity into a MartyrdomCulture by having them pray to them before they get killed and have their souls taken any to be converted into mantra, specifically used to power the Brahmastra. Only Yasha and Deus have regrets for what they do.]] [[spoiler:Chakravartin, who is this from the start, goes [[UpToEleven beyond even them]] by proxy of being the reason why the Guardian generals turned into JerkassGods in the first place, and is even more arrogant than them.]]
