Asura is a boss in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. Asura is fought twice in the game.
When fought under the control of the Mysterious Girl, Asura is immune to damage and status ailments. She will cycle through three attacks: casting Curaga on the Mysterious Girl, casting Shell on her, and using a physical attack. Asura vanishes when the Mysterious Girl is defeated.
The player should focus on attacking the Mysterious Girl with magic, as Asura's presence means she is in the back row and Golbez's attacks do less damage.
When fought on the True Moon, the player ideally should have at least have one White Mage in the party and they must have access to Reflect. At the beginning of the battle, the player should cast Reflect as fast as they can on Asura, to prevent her from casting Curaga on herself. The main focus of this battle is to keep on striking Asura with physical attacks and heal when the party when necessary. If Golbez is in the party, he should taunt so when Asura is attacked she will only hit Golbez. Someone should cast Blink on him, so Golbez will dodge the attacks.
After the scene with Leviathan, the player should continue using physical attacks and Bands until she is defeated.
