Asura is a six-armed ruddy-hued humanoid Yo-kai with turquoise hands on the two larger sets of his three pairs of arms. He has darker facial markings around his face. He also has bright yellow scelera and red irises. On the sides of his head are false faces bearing simian facial markings.
Asura appears as a Legendary Yo-kai starting from Yo-kai Watch 3. As a Legendary Yo-kai, one must befriend/recruit the following Yo-kai first in order to undo his seal.

"Takkabrig" comes from "attaccabrighe" - a person who's prone to causing heated discussions and fights.
"Asura" is derived from his Japanese name.
Asura is based on the group of Buddhist entities of the same name (Japanese: 阿修羅,Ashura). They are divine beings that straddle the line between demon and god, known for their pride, intense passion, thirst for battle and hot temper. Despite being included in the Buddhist pantheon, they are bound by earthly desires even more strongly than humans, and as such struggle to achieve enlightenment, trapped in the lowest plane of heaven where they fight among each other day and night. Nonetheless, they can be as righteous and benevolent as the other Buddhist gods.
Traditionally, they are portrayed as towering, fierce-eyed beings with three faces and six arms.
Asura's "random" nicknames in Yo-kai Watch 3 are: Avenger, Ashy, Hexarm and Fists.
Since Asura is exclusive to Yo-kai Watch 3: Tempura in Japan, all of the Yo-kai needed to befriend Asura are exclusive to Yo-kai Watch 3: Tempura.
He is the second Yo-kai to portray an Asura, the first being Komashura.
Despite his Sushi and Sukiyaki counterparts having their respective foods as their favorites, his favorite food is meat.
