Quote1 I am the true God, the embodiment of the wheel of life, the spinner of all Mantra. Quote2
— Chakravartin

Chakravartin (Japanese: 転輪王 チャクラヴアルテイン, Tenrin'ō Chakuravuarutein; lit. "Wheel-Turning King"; Sanskrit: चक्रवर्तिन्), also known as The Golden Spider and The Creator, is the God of Mantra and the mysterious ruler of Naraka. He is the god who controls the world of Gaea.

Chakravartin is the overarching antagonist of Asura's Wrath, and the archenemy of Asura. Chakravartin accompanied Asura after his fall, which was later revealed to be his plan for choosing an ideal ruler (or "Redeemer") for Gaea to take his place as the next god through the trials he puts the world through. No one on Gaea is aware of his existence.

Appearance

Chakravartin 003

Earlier in the story, Chakravartin appears as a spider-like entity made of intricately designed gold plating and thin legs. That form is known as "the Golden Spider".

After possessing Mithra, Chakravartin uses the full extent of his powers and assumes the shape of an androgynous, white-eyed and white-haired, multi-armed giant wielding two large staves. In this form, he wears a golden makuta and a bindi on his forehead, is barefoot while wearing long golden robes along with a large golden necklace, armlets and bracelets, and emits an eerily powerful golden glow. He possesses a large intricate halo that constantly floats behind his back and emits a rainbow light.

Personality

As the God of Mantra, Chakravartin is a calm, seemingly benevolent, all-seeing and wise individual. As the Golden Spider, he showed a knack of teasing Asura by playing and preying with his wrath, speaking in riddles and questioning him on his motives and the reason of his anger. He is also shown to be very cold and ruthless, as he did not hesitate in killing Olga to protect Mithra and the role she would fulfill in his plans.

However, despite his outwardly benevolent behaviour, Chakravartin is Machiavellian. He caused widespread misery for the people of Gaea simply to look for an "heir", with absolutely no care for the suffering of the inhabitants of the planet caused by the Gohma, instead of properly taking care and guiding his creations. Ultimately, due to his unchecked actions, he is responsible for the misery and suffering of both Gaea and Asura. He explains that he put Asura on a trial to choose him as the "new god" of Gaea, so that he can move on to other worlds under the false pretense of 'saving' them, implying that he is tired of having to look after Gaea.

Chakravartin likes to place his creations on "trials" to see if they are truly worthy of living, typically without paying attention to any collateral damage and suffering his trials entail, along with showing a great lack of empathy. This includes creating and releasing the Gohma on Gaea, which sparked the conflict between the Demigods and the Gohma, and Deus' betrayal to gain enough power to create a new world.

Deep down, beneath his facade of wisdom lies a calculating Darwinist and firm believer that might makes right, as he believed Asura to be the perfect being after he had demonstrated his might, seemingly not caring about any other attributes other than having the strength and power to lead. By proxy, this is the main reason why he believes he is in the absolute right despite the ample evidence to the contrary. A perfectionist to a fault, his trials and guidance are thus, nothing more than a farce to purge out imperfections from his idealized worlds.

Being the Supreme Being of all the Universe and the God of Mantra, he possesses a God complex. He believed himself above any kind of morality. When Asura denies his ideals and fights the god, he reacts in a serene yet disappointed manner, saying that he would have to destroy Gaea and make it anew, implying he has performed this process in the past. Even during his fight with Asura, he maintains a calm and patronizing manner towards the demigod, maintaining complete confidence in his power and authority. However, as Asura continues to defy him and withstand his attacks and damage the god, his calm and polite demeanor and composure is gradually destroyed and he begins to display visible anger and frustration, and his arrogance grows even further, resorting to increasingly more aggressive means to kill Asura as he finds himself unable to either get Asura to become his heir or destroy the demigod. Eventually, as he transforms into his final form and both deities go all out in a fist-fight, Chakravartin starts to display an increasing degree of disbelief at the extent of the injuries he sustains and the defiance presented against his ideals by Asura, claiming to the end he is the one true god and that everything must bend to his will and his commands must be followed. Chakravartin is very determined in his goals and his beliefs, not giving up or yielding when he fought Asura, even when he was slowly being overpowered and still claiming he has all the rights because he is the creator and "true god". Chakravartin's arrogance was ultimately his downfall, leading him to severely underestimating Asura's power.

Story

History

Chakravartin, the primordial God of Mantra, bestowed Mantra upon the humans of Gaea, initiating the Demigod race and subsequently the nation of Shinkoku Trastrium.

12,000 Years after Asura's death

Spider2

Chakravartin as the Golden Spider

Chakravartin, as the Golden Spider, appears when Asura first falls into Naraka, following Deus' attempt to destroy him. There the Spider appears, questioning Asura's motives as well as the reason for his anger and incites him to climb the tower and leave Naraka. He would later repeat this same role the second time Asura fell into Naraka after being cleaved in two by Yasha.

500 Years later

Asura's Wrath Chakravartin First Form-0

Eventually, the Spider appears on the Karma Fortress, after Deus and Viltra were destroyed, preventing Olga from killing Mithra and destroying her himself. He then wraps Mithra in a cocoon of golden Mantra strings and ends up taking control of her body, changing Mithra's hair color from dark to golden and speaking in a dual voice. After taking control of Mithra, the mysterious entity reveals its true form and separates itself from Mithra's body to appear as the primordial God, Chakravartin, the source of all Mantra. Chakravartin explains that the events transpiring between the Gohma and the Demigods has all been a part of his plan to find a new heir to inherit Gaea, as he had grown tired of the planet. As he explains his plan, Asura leaps to attack him since Chakravartin is the reason for all the tragedies that have occurred in the world and is the "one he should kill". Chakravartin calls this attack another test and battles both Yasha and Asura, easily overpowering them both and forcing them to flee (partly due to Asura wearing himself out attempting to rescue the captive Mithra). Disappointed, Chakravartin declares he will have to remake the world as he has done countless times in the past, and subsequently plummets the Karma Fortress towards Gaea in fiery ruin before taking on a new planet-sized form to destroy the planet.

Asura's Wrath Golden Chakravartin

After completing his planet sized transformation, Chakravartin destroyed multiple planets using a beam of concentrated Mantra that he fired towards Gaea, but the attack was quickly absorbed by Asura at the last moment. Amused, Chakravartin beckoned Asura to face him while firing multiple projectiles (i.e. suns, planets, comets, etc.) to test his abilities. Upon breaking through the structure and appearing in his pocket dimension, Chakravartin calmly congratulated Asura on exceeding his expectations and declared him the one truly fit as a perfect being to rule Gaea stating the planet must be "ruled by one of its own". As part of Asura's reward, Chakravartin returned Mithra to Asura while stating he was planning on traveling to other worlds in need of his "guidance". As a gesture of good will, Chakravartin stretched out his hand to Asura to have his heir accept his offer only to be struck in the face by the angry demigod who refused to take part in the destructive god's plan.

Asura's Wrath Golden Chakravartin Destruction

Mithra is the only witness of the final legacy of Chakravartin as the large golden statue of his likeness disappears along with its maker

Enraged at being spurned for his offer, Chakravartin attacks Asura only to be angered at his inability to destroy the demigod and the latter's ability to cause him harm. Losing his composure, Chakravartin takes Mithra back and viciously attacks the demigod, throwing away his staves and engaging Asura in a fistfight that damages both fighters, but is quickly knocked away by the demigod. No longer tolerant of his foe's insolence, Chakravartin declares he will erase Asura's very existence and transforms into his most powerful form to put an end to Asura's existence. Now in his most powerful form, known as The Creator, Chakravartin effortlessly overpowers the demigod and deals severe damage to him. As the battle continues, the battle gradually turns against the Mantra God's favor, as a result of Asura's evergrowing wrath empowering him, while Asura continues to beat Chakravartin to the point where he finally shatters his composure. In a final bout, Chakravartin uses whatever strength he has left to battle the demigod only to be shrugged off and outmatched in might, all the while questioning in disbelief how a demigod could become so powerful. In a final attack on the weakened god, Asura delivers a final punch to Chakravartin's face which obliterates the tyrannical deity's face and causes him to vanish in a whirlwind of Mantra while screaming in anguish. With his death, all traces of Mantra disappears from the world, ending the threat of Chakravartin forever, but also meaning that without Mantra, it meant Asura would cease to exist as he fades away into the heavens to his late wife and to later be reincarnated with the other demigods.

870 Million Years later

In the epilogue, it is hinted that Chakravartin also reincarnated along with the rest of the demigods, as a golden spider can be seen hanging from a tree while a reincarnated Kalrow is being reprimanded by a female police officer.

Powers & Abilities

As the "true god", as well as being called the "Spinner of Mantra" and the "Embodiment of the Wheel of Life", Chakravartin is an extremely powerful being and deity, and is, in theory, the most powerful being in the Universe. Being the creator and God of Mantra, Chakravartin possesses almighty, virtually insurmountable power and a divine status that eclipses any other being and demigod's, even the Seven Deities', and he holds complete control over all the Mantra in the universe. He is the orchestrator of all the events of Asura's Wrath, from the creation of Gaea, the Demigod race, and bringing the Gohma into the planet, to setting off the war between them and the Demigods to find a powerful heir.

Throughout the various forms he manifests in, Chakravartin is shown to boast overwhelming levels of strength, speed, durability, endurance and stamina, being strong enough to easily match Asura in several of his forms--even against the Destructor and regular-sized Destructor/Six-Armed Mantra forms--as well as simultaneously deal heavy damage to the demigod all at once. In his standard form, Chakravartin was already powerful enough to overpower Mantra Asura and Yasha with extreme ease, although it should be noted that they had sustained significant damage and were very tired from battling Gohma Viltra and Viltra's Core.

Adding to his unimaginable power, Chakravartin has the ability to shapeshift into several incredibly powerful and even colossal forms. As the conceptual god of Mantra, Chakravartin has displayed the unique ability to manifest his Mantra in different shapes and forms in sync with whatever form he was currently inhabiting.

Physical Abilities

Superhuman Strength: Being a god, Chakravartin has overwhelming godly strength. Aside from his towering physical stature, which also coupled his physical might, he was consistently strong enough to casually lift Asura with a single hand and match or even outclass Asura's ferocious strength throughout their battles, being able to effortlessly fend off Mantra Asura's attacks with only his bare hands. Chakravartin's strength is so vast to the point he completely demolished most of normal-sized Destructor/Six-Armed Mantra Asura's bulky arms using physical force alone in a fit of rage in their last battle.

Superhuman Speed, Agility & Reflexes: Despite his enormous size, Chakravartin was extremely fast. He was able to fight both Asura and Yasha, and later went as far as being capable of matching regular-sized Destructor/Six-Armed Mantra Asura in a fist clash during their final battle, even overpowering him momentarily. Additionally, he was able to react to and defend against Asura's powerful attacks without effort.

Superhuman Durability & Endurance: As a god, Chakravartin possessed a vast amount of superhuman durability. While Chakravartin is not completely indestructible (as proven during his battles with Asura), his physical durability and resilience to damage alone has shown to be far greater than any other being present in the story, surpassing even Deus and Gohma Vlitra, with only the strongest of beings being capable of doing any sort of perceivable harm to him (with the only being who has shown this capability being Asura himself). He did not sustain any visible damage during his initial battle with Asura and Yasha after Vlitra's demise and did not suffer any serious injuries given by normal-sized Destructor/Six-Armed Mantra Asura later on, and he even completely shattered four of his arms when enraged, albeit with some effort and minor damage to his own limbs.

Superhuman Stamina: Chakravartin had an immensely high amount of stamina, as he was able to battle both Asura and Yasha and completely outclass them without effort, and later clash against Asura in his Destructor and normal-sized Destructor/Six-Armed Mantra forms in a final battle for an extended period of time without ever showing to tire out.

Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Being a deity that has lived for countless ages, Chakravartin is an extremely proficient and dangerous combatant, with only the strongest of beings being capable of fighting him.

Intellectual Genius: As the god who orchestrated every event in Asura's Wrath, Chakravartin is extremely wise, intelligent, and a master manipulator.

Immortality: As as god and the most powerful being in the universe, Chakravartin possessed immortality and was unable to age, likely having been alive since the beginning of the universe. Chakravartin also could not be killed by conventional methods. Only a being as powerful as Asura was capable of truly ending him.

Vacuum Adaptation: As a godly being, Chakravartin could survive in areas such as outer space or the Moon unaided and without any form of discomfort. He is not affected by the lack of atmosphere and increased level of cosmic radiation.

Limb Extension: Chakravartin is able to stretch his arms over long distances and at high speeds.

Mantra

Mantra Creation & Manipulation: As the original creator and source of Mantra, as well as the God of Mantra and "Spinner of Mantra", Chakravartin has absolute control over all the Mantra in the Universe. Through the absolute and complete manipulation of Mantra, Chakravartin is shown to be capable of accomplishing virtually any feat imaginable without any sort of effort required. Understandably, his mastery over Mantra is unrivaled by any being. As the origin and tether of all Mantra in the universe, Chakravartin's destruction would mean all Mantra and Mantra-related creations (such as the demigod race) would inevitably disappear, as seen with Asura's death in the end. This suggests that Chakravartin is, in fact, not only the God of Mantra, but the very conceptual embodiment of Mantra as well.

Chakravartin's Mantra is golden in colour and he can manifest it in a wide variety of ways, such as powerful shockwaves - strong enough to force Asura even in his regular-sized Destructor/Six-Armed Mantra form and Yasha back -, beams, lasers, massive surges of Mantra around himself, enormous orbs, spheres, blasts, barriers, among others. Chakravartin also had the ability to form extremely powerful and nearly impenetrable forcefields/barriers that were strong enough to stop Mantra Asura's attacks and restrict Wrath Asura from reaching Mithra. Additionally, Chakravartin was capable of effortlessly dismantling the Karma Fortress with his golden threads of Mantra (which could envelop the Karma Fortress and even reach nearby planets) and send the remains of the fortress plummeting towards Gaea.

  • Mantra Bestowal: As the creator and supreme god of Mantra, Chakravartin can grant the power of Mantra to individuals. This played a key role in the story of Asura's Wrath, as Chakravartin is the one who bestowed Mantra upon the humans of Gaea prior to the beginning of the story, subsequently giving birth to the demigod race. Additionally, Chakravartin grants the full power of Mantra upon those he deems a suitable heir to rule the world, suggesting that by giving those individuals the Mantra's full extent, they become in possession of god-like abilities and power beyond those of any demigod, including the Eight Guardian Generals and the Seven Deities.
  • Gohma Creation: Chakravartin is the true creator of the Gohma, including Gohma Vlitra. In his plans to find a powerful ruler for Gaea and his other worlds, Chakravartin twisted the will of Gaea and fueled its rage, having it give birth to Gohma Vlitra and consequently the Gohma as tests for his vessels. As such, aside from Vlitra, who is the progenitor and source of the Gohma and who too was created by the Mantra god as aforementioned, Chakravartin has the power to spawn endless hordes of Gohma as he pleases, even if Gohma Vlitra is killed permanently.
  • Possession: Chakravartin has demonstrated the ability to possess the bodies of individuals, referring to them as "vessels". This is seen when Chakravartin took possession of Mithra's body.
  • Dimensional Travel: Chakravartin can freely travel to and between different dimensions such as Naraka and the living world at will.
  • Flight: Chakravartin has the ability to levitate and fly through the air.
  • Teleportation: Chakravartin has the ability to teleport from one place to another.
  • Space-Time Manipulation: Chakravartin has the ability to warp space and time for combat and warfare.
    • Pocket Reality Manipulation & Illusion Creation: Chakravartin has shown the power to create pocket dimensions and perfect illusions. He created a separate reality inside his titanic golden statue, the "Event Horizon", which he could freely manipulate, as seen in the final battle with Asura where he created an illusionary pocket dimension of Naraka in an attempt to fool and destroy Asura. Shortly after transforming into his final form, his sole presence altered the Event Horizon completely again.
  • Telepathy: Chakravartin can communicate with Asura and Mithra telepathically.
  • Imprisonment Sphere: Chakravartin has the ability to imprison individuals into spheres, with the addition of being able to teleport the sphere out of the battlefield along with anyone inside it, usually within himself. He used this ability to imprison Mithra and take her out of Asura's reach.
  • Statue/Avatar Creation: Chakravartin is capable of creating titanic statues/avatars of himself in a lotus mediation position. The statues can be used for warfare, being able to manipulate Mantra of their own to generate multiple massive beams and spheres of Mantra.
  • Astronomical Body Creation: Chakravartin is powerful enough to create planets/worlds and other astronomical bodies, having been the entity who created Gaea and (presumably) the Moon, among other worlds. He would create such worlds in hopes of finding an heir that would rule them for him.
  • Life and Death Manipulation (Implied): Chakravartin states to be the "Embodiment of the Wheel of Life" (or Samsāra), which in theory allowed him to control Life, Death and Rebirth freely, although this ability was not shown explicitly.

Transformations

The Golden Spider

Asura's Wrath Golden Spider

The Golden Spider

As the Golden Spider (黄金の蜘蛛, Kogane no kumo), Chakravartin appears as a spider-like entity made of intricately designed gold plating and thin legs. As the Golden Spider, he was able to knead and manipulate a large amount of Mantra-composed strings that were strong enough to disarm, restrain and ultimately constrict Olga to death with apparently no effort at all. He is also able to form a large cocoon to imprison individuals and possess them.

Golden Chakravartin

Asura's Wrath Golden Chakravartin-0

Golden Chakravartin

After sending the Karma Fortress crashing down onto Gaea, Chakravartin creates a colossal golden statue version of himself in a lotus meditation position on a lotus throne with dozens of galaxies around it. The statue was unimaginably gigantic, making Asura in his Destructor form appear as a speck when he punched its forehead. According to the game's illustrations, Golden Chakravartin was sitting in the center of the Milky Way galaxy, by warping and pulling the entirety of it towards him. Its function is near-identical to that of the Karma Fortress, but its size and the power of its blasts far outclasses that of the demigods' station.

The inside of the statue is a pocket dimension, referred as the "Event Horizon". In this space, Chakravartin can freely manipulate the reality inside it to create pocket realities and perfect illusions to fool Asura, even as far as creating an illusion/pocket reality of the realm of Naraka. Even when Asura assumes the normal-sized form of Destructor/Six-Armed Mantra, he still struggles considerably against the Mantra God to maintain an advantage in their fight.

Mantra Beam: The statue is able to manipulate Mantra of its own, being capable of firing colossal beams of Mantra with enough power to vaporise multiple planets along their path without losing momentum, and travel incredible distances in mere moments.

Mantra Orb: The statue was able to create Mantra-composed orbs and barrage Asura with a multitude of them.

Cosmic Manipulation: Golden Chakravartin possessed the ability to create and freely manipulate celestial bodies like planets and stars, and use them as projectiles as a show against Asura. Its power and mastery were such that it was capable of creating and controlling multiple planets and stars at once.

Chakravartin, The Creator

AW - Chakravartin The Creator

Chakravartin, the Creator

During his final battle with Asura, Chakravartin assumes his final form to destroy the demigod completely, The Creator (転輪王 ア・スラ). In his Creator form, he is only slightly taller than Asura, and his body is thinner and much more sinister in appearance, bearing intricately decorated silver plating with the front of his upper body (starting at his face and extending into his upper abdomen) being split open, revealing a black and red skeletal-like inside. His eyes are also red and his multiple arms are reduced to just two.

The Creator is Chakravartin's most powerful form in all aspects, focusing much more on physical combat and boasting insane strength, speed, agility, combat prowess, durability, endurance and stamina. He easily overpowered Asura in his normal-sized Destructor/Six-Armed Mantra form, destroying all of his arms with a single finger and dealing severe damage to the demigod and reducing him to his most basic state. Nonetheless, despite his almighty power, he began to be overpowered by Asura's growing wrath later on. In this form, Chakravartin's combat style changes radically; his movements become akin to that of an ice skater, moving with grace through the battlefield. He becomes a fierce, deadly and incredibly proficient hand-to-hand combatant and martial artist, going toe-to-toe with Asura in a brutal, prolonged fistfight and display of martial arts, before eventually succumbing to defeat at the demigod's hands.

Mantra Manipulation: In his Creator form, Chakravartin's Mantra energy becomes dark grey in colour. He can manipulate Mantra to unleash an incredibly destructive ray, large and explosive throwing blades in a large array, powerful waves, shockwaves and bursts, tremendous surges of Mantra around himself, massive spheres, among other attacks.

  • Teleportation: Chakravartin had the ability to teleport from one place to another instantaneously.

Time-Stop: Chakravartin can seemingly stop time to better focus his attacks on Asura and get him off guard, as well as to escape attacks.

Trivia

  • Ironically, even though he has claimed to be the supreme being of the universe in Asura's Wrath, in real-life Hindu theology, Chakravartin is a character in India that represents "The Ideal Ruler," and not necessarily the "Ruler of All." The word "Chakravartin" means "one whose wheels are moving" or "he who turns the wheel (of dharma)".
  • Chakravartin has twenty-two arms (interestingly, the same number of branches on "Kabbalah", the Judeo-Christian symbolic Tree of Life).
  • Chakravartin's overall appearance in his primary form closely resembles Buddha.
  • Chakravartin's primary form is based off the Bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara, due to his multiple-armed appearance and the twin staves that he carries with him.
  • In terms of physical size, Chakravartin is quite possibly one of the largest villains in Capcom history. Only Pyron from the Darkstalker series has been shown to surpass him. Chakravartin may also be larger than Viewtiful Joe's Six Machine which was comparable to the solar system in size. The Official Complete Works, however, depicts him as literally sitting on the Milky Way and even absorbing it into himself, making him surpass even Pyron in size.
  • In his final battle, Chakravartin frequently stops time and throws knives at Asura which launch at high speed when time resumes normally. Powers similar to this belonged to Dio Brando from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series.
  • His Golden Spider form may be a reference to the Buddhist tale "The Spider's Thread", where Buddha meditates in heaven and sees a sinner in Hell who had committed one good deed: sparing a spider's life. He, like Chakravartin, intervened with fate and created a spider's thread allowing the sinner to climb to heaven, but the criminal's greed causes him to fall back to the underworld. It also parallels Western ideas of spiders as manipulators who trap others and weave complicated webs.
    • He could also be a reference to the Akan god of Wisdom, Anansi, who was often depicted as a spider and was renowned for tricking others in pursuit of his own ends.
  • Chakravartin claims to represent Saṃsāra, the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Saṃsāra in Hinduism and Buddhism is actually the source of suffering (Duḥkha) in the universe, and becoming enlightened (Nirvāṇa) involves escaping it.
  • In the final battle, Chakravartin has his own QTEs, and he is the only character in the game apart from Asura/Yasha who has their own QTEs.
    • The symbol presented in his button prompts is known as "Om" or "Aum", which is a crucial spiritual symbol in Indian religions that signifies various things such as ultimate reality, the universe, creation, consciousness and divinity. It is one of the most important and known Mantras in Hinduism and Buddhism. Chakravartin's status as the God and creator of Mantra can be emphasized by it.
  • The pocket reality inside Golden Chakravartin's statue is called "Event Horizon". In real world astrophysics, Event Horizon is the center of a black hole, being so powerful that light and particles cannot escape from it.
  • Both Chakravartin's and Asura's transformation name have a sense of irony to them. As Chakravartin is called The Creator but wants to destroy Gaea while Asura The Destructor protected it.
