The ASURA-6 is a weapon in the video game No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. It is a back-mounted machine with six arm-like appendages used by Alice Twilight. These six appendages, aligned in a hexagonal fashion, store a pink beam katana, with the lowest appendage capable of lifting her off the ground or alternatively being used as a tail-like weapon. The beam katanas housed by the device can also be launched as projectiles, with the ASURA-6 capable of quickly regenerating any flailed beams. Twilight appears to control the appendages of the ASURA-6 using her arms. The ASURA-6 borrows its name from the Hindu deities named Asura, who are popularly depicted as having six arms.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name of the ASURA-6 comes from Buddhism. More specifically, the name comes from the lowest ranks of the deities or demigods of the Kāmadhātu (Desire Realm) which are described as having three heads with three faces and four to six arms. The weapon having six arm-like appendages corresponds to this description.
