In this second episode, following the first one, Asura and Ryu are confronted by Akuma; the fighter who seeks to surpass all. After announcing himself he attacks the two fighters, pushing Asura away and performs the Demon Armageddon upon Ryu, sending him back to his original world. Asura then recovers and faces off against Akuma, during the battle Asura gains the upper hand and causes Akuma to fly and crash after a powerful punch from Asura. Akuma then allows the Satsui no Hadou to take over him completely and transforms into Oni, which prompts Asura to transform into his second strongest form Mantra Asura. The two fighters then face off in a titanic battle with Asura, once again, gaining the upper hand by countering all of Oni's Ultra attacks and engages with his own. The battle escalates to the point where the very moon splits apart to the core and breaks from the sheer force of their blows alone. Asura and Oni begin to battle inside the moon, among the asteroids, space, when finally they wrestle and struggle against each other before crashing back down to Earth. The two fighters engage in a flurry of attacks with neither one refusing to step down. 500 years later Asura and Akuma turn into stone, with them reduced to their normal forms, moments later the statues move and come to life attacking each other one more time to finish the fight ending in a cliff hanger, this episode has no impact on the story line of Asura's Wrath and the Street Fighter series, making these events non-canonical.
