Akuma Shogun (悪魔将軍) is originally Goldman, who often fought with his younger brother Silverman. He was placed - in soul form - inside the Golden Mask, where he later became the leader of the Seven Akuma Chojin.


The leader of the Seven Akuma Chōjin and the Devil Knights. His true identity is that of the former first Perfect Origin, Goldman, known as the God of Battle (戦いの神, Tatakai no Kami). He frequently quarrelled with his younger brother Silverman and the two eventually engaged in a sword battle, a battle which ended with the two of them simultaneously beheading each other. His soul was placed inside the Golden Mask (黄金のマスク, Ōgon no Masuku) and many years later aligned himself with Satan and became Akuma Shogun.

With his finishing move, Hell's Nine Point Seal, he attacks the nine vital points of the Chōjin body. His trademark Hell's Guillotine is part of this, attacking the neck. He obtains his flesh body when the Devil Knights unite underneath his mask. He has the ability to freely alter the hardness of his body, from a Chōjin Hardness (超人硬度, Chōjin Kōdo) level of 10 (the highest in the Chōjin world), known as Diamond Body (ダイヤモンドボディ), to Chōjin Hardness 0, Snake Body (スネークボディ). Coupled with the fact that no body exists within his armor, there are very few techniques that can actually harm him. His weak spot is his head because he shows signs of pain when he got hit in the head during his fights with Buffaloman and Kinnikuman.

Due to his actions, he is seen as the main antagonist of the Golden Mask Arc and the antagonist of the overall series



Long ago, two gods, Goldman and Silverman (gods of war and peace) were asked who was stronger, and in the resulting conflict everything of their bodies were destroyed but their heads, which became the Silver and Gold Masks, sacred relics of the Kinniku Tribe. Goldman made a bargain with Satan for a body with which he would kill Seigi Chojin.

As Akuma Shogun, he became leader of the Akuma Knights (Asuraman, Sunshine, The Ninja, Junkman, Planetman, Sneagator, and a revived Buffaloman).

Golden Mask Arc

After Geronimo's fight with Sunshine, all the Akuma Knights came into Akuma Shogun. He then killed Geronimo with his hell guillotine and then made Asuraman fight Kinnikuman. After Asuraman lost Akuma Shogun made him get inside his armor. He was going to fight Kinnikuman but Buffaloman got in the way so Kinnikuman could perfect the Kinniku driver.

Perfect Origin Arc

When a group of Perfect Choujin called the Perfect Numbers announce their rise to power and attempted to challenge the Justice Choujin who failed to show. Akuma Shogun had summoned all of his loyal Devil Choujin to battle them at the designated arenas in order to obtain victory for the Devil Choujin. Akuma Choujin would face Strong the Budo at the Ayer's Rock in Australia.

Kinnikuman Nisei

Demon Seed Arc

In Kinnikuman Nisei, Asuraman attempts to revive General Fear (恐怖の将 Kyōfu no Shō). [2]

General Terror emerges from the Demon Amino in the Demon Womb, where he clutches Alexandria Meat's head and appears as a headless entity. [3] Despite the fact that Mantaro Kinniku won his match against the Demon Seed, General Terror refuses to give back Meat's head, and - as Mantaro attempts to attack him to force him to relinquish the head - General Terror counters all attacks. Just as General Terror attempts to use Meat's head for his own, Asuraman uses his leg (made from General Terror's diamond body) to slice off General Terror's arm and prevent him from using Meat's head before the match time-limit. [3]

It comes to be revealed that General Terror gave Asuraman back his youth, after Asuraman pleaded with him to restore his former strength and was on the verge of death. [3][4] General Terror admires Asuraman's greed, as his motivations were originally selfish, and gives him a chance to apologise for his previous interference, so that he can instead swear allegiance to General Terror. [4] After Asuraman refuses to submit, General Terror removes his General Stone and reverts him back to his elderly and fail state.

Without Meat's head, and the time-limit over, General Terror crumbles away.

His Diamond Dust of Rebirth revives all fallen Seigi Chojin. [4]
