|This article is about a/an monstrous Rider in Kamen Rider Zi-O.|
In 2013, Asura was a member of Team Baron who was expelled by Kaito and his peers. While lashing out at his former leader, Swartz freezes the time and transforms Asura into Another Gaim. Using his newfound ability, Asura expels Kaito and those who dare to oppose him into Helheim while taking over Team Baron's leadership. Sougo would travel into the past and used GaimArmor to defeat Asura, but his destruction was reversed by the Man of the Beginning, who tells Sougo to have faith in Geiz Myoukouin.
Within the span of five years, Asura maintains the Team Baron leadership and attempted to expel a dancer who discovers his true nature until the future Sougo interfered. Nonetheless he managed to expel both the dancer and Geiz into Helheim. During the performance, he was interrupted by the present Sougo and proceeded to fight him in the middle of the event. Both Zi-O and his future iteration would face Another Gaim until he escaped.
A year later, Asura was attacked by Hiryu Kakogawa and had the residual energy of his power as Another Gaim taken from him offscreen as Another Zi-O could already assume the form of Another Gaim.

Behind the Scenes
to be added
- Another Gaim's helmet design is seemingly based on Super Imaginative Chogokin (S.I.C.) figure design of Kamen Rider Kurokage.
- Another Gaim's boots and gloves are recolored versions of Another Wizard's.
- Despite being based on Gaim Orange Arms, both the armor design and the choice of weapon seem to draw from Kachidoki Arms, especially with how the weapon's shape is near identical to the DJ Gun's Taiken Mode, with it being slightly larger.
- Asura as Another Gaim is an opposite to both Kouta Kazuraba and Kaito Kumon in that he uses his powers as an Another Rider to lord his superiority by not only usurping the leadership of Team Baron from Kaito, but also doing the same thing to the other members who don't agree with him. Kouta, as an Armored Rider later comes to the importance of using his powers with responsibility to protect those he loved, while Kaito is defined by his charisma and "survival of the fittest" mindset, all while being a fair and honorable leader to his team.
- Asura's name is possibly derived from Hindu and Buddhist mythology, as Asuras were war deities exiled from heaven obsessed with power and approached any problem with violence. Asura himself was kicked out of Team Baron and uses violent methods to keep his team in line.
