Origin/Full Circle


The Demon General - Akuma Shogun
The Demon General - Akuma Shogun
Long ago, two god brothers of war and peace named Goldman and Silverman were asked who was stronger. In the resulting conflict, everything of their bodies was destroyed but their heads, which became the Gold and Silver Masks and the sacred relics of the Kinniku Tribe. Goldman made a bargain with Satan for a body with which he would kill heroic choujin. From there, he took the name Akuma Shogun and as Akuma Shogun, he became leader of the Devil Knights which consisted of six evil demon choujin: Junkman, Ashuraman, Sunshine, The Ninja, Planetman, and Sneagator. He sent his warriors to do battle with the justice choujin, which consisted mainly of Robin Mask, Terryman, Geronimo, Brocken Jr., and Kinnikuman (respectively). The battle carried on into a comatose Warsman's body, which became the site of three victories and a draw for the justice choujin.

You have failed me...
You have failed me...
...for the last time...
...for the last time...
But Akuma Shogun's Devil Knights were defeated and it seemed that the battle was won if not for the ringleader's sudden appearance. Akuma Shogun defeated Geronimo with one of his techniques, the Hell's Guillotine, before making an escape with the only surviving member of the Devil Knights, Ashuraman. Once outside, Ashuraman attacked Warsman, but was stopped by Suguru Kinniku (Kinnikuman). He challenged Kinnikuman to a battle on top of a mountain and after a hard-fought brawl, Kinnikuman managed to win by learning the initial stages of the Kinniku Driver.

Ashuraman begged for mercy from Akuma Shogun, but was told to commit suicide (in the anime, he was killed by the Demon General). Akuma Shogun wanted to fight Kinnikuman, but Buffaloman intervened so that Kinnikuman could perfect the only technique capable of killing Akuma Shogun, the Kinniku Driver, and was thoroughly beaten. Akuma Shogun even wrapped his own body around Buffaloman's head by turning his body into a rubbery substance similar to a snake's body and crushing the justice choujin's skull. As Buffaloman was slowly passing out, Kinnikuman appeared and took the fight out of his hands.

Before Kinnikuman could even face Akuma Shogun, though, the devil choujin magically summoned most of Kinnikuman's friends to support the arena with their bodies. Initially horrified, Kinnikuman made the decision to let actions speak instead of words. The fight between hero and villain commenced with each fighter being of equal status to the other, that was however until Akuma Shogun revealed his Satan-bought abilities. First, he turned the ring into diamond and made it more difficult to hold up. Then, he turned his own body into diamonds, though he could move regularly.

Hell's Guillotine
Hell's Guillotine
After a heavy beatdown, Kinnikuman blocked Akuma Shogun's Hell's Merry-Go-Round with Robin Mask's steel armor (which, remarkably, shattered on contact with the blades) and even managed to hit Akuma Shogun with the Kinniku Driver, exposing his true form as the brother god of war. Kinnikuman lost control of his mask and he was revealed to be the wearer of the mask of the brother god of peace. Enraged at his brother's "interference," Akuma Shogun absorbed the power of his Devil Knights and laid a beatdown on Kinnikuman that was worse than before, going so far as to unleash the Nine Point Hell Seal and almost kill Kinnikuman.

But Kinnikuman reversed the Hell's Guillotine at the last second and hit the floor with Akuma Shogun's head using a second Kinniku Driver. Akuma Shogun, now fully Goldman, made peace with his brother and the two merged to create the Perfect Mask.

Akuma also makes a cameo in Kinnikuman Nisei.

Techniques/Abilities


Hell's Nine Point Seal


This combination of attacks represents the "destroying force" used to attack all nine essential parts of the body:
  1. Daisetsuzan Drop Part 1 (back): after knocking his opponent into the air, Akuma Shogun jumps up after them, grabbing their foot and head while kneeling with one knee on their stomach, then Akuma and his opponent just drop to the mat with the opponent's back taking all of the force.
  2. Spin Double Arm Sault Parts 2 and 3 (arms): Akuma Shogun grabs his opponent in a double underhook and spins around rapidly, slamming his opponent into the mat with shoulders and arms extended.
  3. Double Knee Crusher Part 4 and 5 (knees/legs): Akuma Shogun performs a standard knee crusher, but slams both of his opponent's knees onto one of his instead of just one.
  4. Helmet Splitter Part 6 (crown of the head): Akuma Shogun grabs his opponent as if performing a standard frontal suplex, but slams them on their head.
  5. Stomach Crush Part 7 (stomach): when his opponent is face-up on the mat, Akuma Shogun dives off the top rope and imaples the horn on his head into the opponent's torso.
  6. Handshake Part 8 (hand): Akuma Shogun grabs one of his opponent's hands and squeezes.
  7. Hell's Guillotine Part 9 (neck): usually following a variation of the Spin Double Arm Sault during which he lets go while he is spinning (thus sending the opponent flying into the air), Akuma Shogun leaps after the opponent and places his foot on their throat, falling with them at such a velocity as to crush their windpipe.
  8. Piledriver False Part 8 (Neck): a variation of his Hell's Nine Point Seal attacks includes a standard piledriver during which Akuma Shogun flips his opponent upside-down, holds them at the waist, and promptly sits down, crushing their neck in place.
  9. Choujin Compressor False Part 9 (all parts): Akuma Shogun grabs his opponent in a modified full nelson (he places his opponent's hands against the back of their head and holds them there). Then, he jumps onto their back and catches their legs in a scissor hold. Finally, he pulls their arms back, pushes their head forward, and pulls their legs back.
  10. Hell's Merry-Go-Round: Akuma Shogun extends blades out of his arms and leaps into the air, spinning around at maximum altitude and launching himself like a pinball at his opponent, essentially shredding them upon impact.
  11. Demonic Shogun Claw: basically an Iron Claw fortified with powerful talons, Akuma Shogun grabs his opponent by the face and slams them around.
  12. Skull Crush: Akuma Shogun uses his body-manipulating ability to make his body go limp like a snake, wrap around his opponent's head, and proceed to constrict it like an anaconda.
Akuma Shogun is able to make his body go into varying levels of hardness (10 being similar to a diamond body and 0 similar to a snake's). This, coupled with the fact that there is no actual body underneath his armor, he is almost impossible to harm. His only weakness are attacks to his cranium and the Kinniku Driver exposed this, providing his downfall.
