Background

Ama Tsubai once was an up and coming sumo wrestler, a makushita. However, his career came to an end at the Spring Honbasho. Ama and his opponent, who was from the higher ranks performed the traditional ceremonies, the flinging of salt, and the clapping of the hands to awaken the spirits.

The referee stood back to make sure everything was correct. With a mere nod of their heads the wrestlers collided. Ama was in his element. The crowds cheers seemed to fade and things seemed to go in slow motion.

Ama attempted to drive his opponent out of the ring with some well placed slaps. However, his foe was a seasoned wrestler and wasn't concerned with Ama's seemingly feeble slaps. Instead the man grabbed his mawashi or belt, and with a deft throw sent Ama flying from the ring.

Pain exploded in Ama's left arm as he crashed into the front of spectators. The matches were stopped for about five minutes while Ama was helped to the dressing room.

In the dressing room Ama was given a shot that he was told was for the pain, not that it helped any. His arm was wrapped up in ice and he was sent home.

Ama tried his best to relax that night but the pain in his arm just wouldn't go away. And to top that off the place where he had been given a shot was starting to itch. Ama removed the bandage and looked at the injection spot. It was red about the size of a 500 Yen piece, and it was growing and throbbing. Try as he might, Ama couldn't help but itch. It seemed to be the only thing to bring relief.

Ama wasn't aware at the time that the drug he was injected was triggering his latent Uber powers. Some time in the morning Ama passed out due the stress of the transformation. No longer was he the wounded sumo wrestler, but something completely different.

It was a clawed hand that gripped the back of Ama's sofa as Ama picked himself off the floor. Not only had his skin taken on a scarlet hue, but he had grown several feet in the transformation. Ama almost struck his head on the ceiling as he stood.

Ama thought he was hallucinating, until he looked at himself in his bathroom mirror. The face of a demon stared back at a startled Ama. A terrifying roar came from his fanged mouth. The roar was so scary that even Ama had to place his clawed hands over his mouth in horror. What had he become? An oni? Was Ama being punished for some bad karma?

Ama returned to his front room and sat for an hour trying to figure out what had happened and what he was going to do about it. At first Ama tried to hide the fact using latex and other disguises, but it was difficult to hide the fact that he had grown several feet in height. Then Ama discovered that in addition to being over 2 meters in height he could become totally invisible at will.

Ama hide out for several weeks, but strange things kept happening to him, people would walk into him, and Ama was sure that some ninja girl was pursuing him for some reason. He was sure that it was bad karma. Dejected Ama sat in his front room reading the newspapers.

His eye came across a help wanted ad for a part in an upcoming movie called "Revenge of the Oni". Ama knew that he would be perfect for the part, him being an oni now. Ama turned out to be a natural, and became an overnight sensation. People started calling him 'Ake no Oni' or 'Red Oni'. Several "Revenge of the Oni" movies later, and Aki is a big star in Japan.

Ama has always enjoyed the limelight. Ama partied with the best of them. He was sure he was the greatest karaoke singer in Tokyo. However, Ama's zeal for partying and arrogance seemed to irritate Number One the leader of Ichiban.

The two met at a club, and after a karaoke duel, the two powerhouses proceeded to tear the place apart. Ama and Number One destroyed several block, but in the end Number One proved too powerful for Ake no Oni. Ama ended up in the hospital with a broken leg and a broken arm. Fortunately for Ama, he's a quick healer.

Ama has since that night grown up a little, not much but a little. He still likes to party for nights on in, but also enjoys fighting crime. Recently, through what he considers bad karma he has ended up associating with a band of heroes calling themselves the Rim. Ama only hopes that it doesn't interfere with his partying.

Personality

Ama has always felt that he's better than almost anybody else. It took a pummeling by Number One to bring some light to his blockhead. However, Ama just can't seem to help himself. He always acts as if he's somehow better than everyone else. Ama knows that he's the toughest super-hero in the Japan, the best actor, and the best karaoke singer there ever was. He was a nobody when he was a sumo wrestler, and now that he's 'Ake no Oni' he's finally a somebody, and nobody better forget it.

Ama's second weakness is that the oni is a party animal. He has been known to party for days upon end. Ama just can't get enough of it; dancing, drinking, and karaoke. He's just still not sure why odd things happen around him while he's persuing his favorite pastime. It's at times like this when Ama thinks he has drunk too much. And then there's that ninja girl. What does she want. Sorry no autographs.

Powers

The transformation that changed Ama into his current form granted him superhuman strength, resiliency, and an enviable healing factor. Wounds that would kill almost anyone only seem to slow down Ama a little. Bullets, blades, and bombs rarely faze Ama. The transformation has also give Ama a set of razor sharp claws that can shred solid steel. However, Ama rarely uses them against people. Robots, spirit creatures, and paparazzi are a different story.

Ama can utter a terrifing roar that is sure to clear a room when he's angry. With his superhuman strength, Ama can also leap long distances. Ama is also a trained sumo wrestler, and with his strength can deliver powerful slaps, and when he grabs someone it takes a lot to make Ama let them go.

One of Ama's more unusual abilities, is his ability to become completely invisible. While invisible, it's impossible to hear, see, or even smell Ama. However, running into Ama is a sure way of finding him. Many a foe has been tagged by Ama while he was invisible.

Appearance

Ama has become a hulking demon faced monster. Or at least that is what his critics say. Ama towers over most Japanese, and is extremely muscular. His skin is a deep red color, and his mouth is full of sharp fangs. A shaggy mop of wild hair tops his head where a pair of horns grow. Ama's fingers end with razor sharp claws which Ama always keeps clean.

His usual costume just consists of a tiger-skin loincloth. It's hard for Ama to shop for clothes in his size. The loincloth just seemed more simpler. Besides he saw that an American hero got away with wearing just a loincloth, so why couldn't he. When partying, which is almost every night, Ama often wears only a pair of shorts (usually cut-off jeans), sometimes with a flamboyant shirt.
