"Shura" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.

"Sky Rider" Shura was one of the four priests of the Upper Yard, who punished criminals with the Ordeal of String during Enel's reign.[2] He rode a giant flying bird named Fuza.[1] He is a major antagonist during the Skypiea Arc.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Shura resembles a stereotypical aviator from the early 1900s: he has a thin, pointed mustache that splits into two parts; on his head there is an aviator hat decorated with wings, and a pair of goggles on the front. His attire is composed of an orange fur-lined jacket, with brown swollen sleeves decorated by beige spots; loose matching orange pants held up by a belt, fur-lined gloves and boots, and a purple scarf around his neck. He's dark haired, and on his back there is a pair of typical wings, a standard feature of all the inhabitants of Skypiea. He carries his weapon of choice, a jousting lance, powered by a Heat Dial, and is almost always seen riding his pet giant bird, Fuza.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Like all the other priests, Shura is confident in his abilities, and willing to kill every transgressor. Despite his proven cruelty, he has shown some moments of apparent pity and understanding, such as when he was talking to Chopper, even referring to him with his first name. However his overconfidence is what led to his defeat as he greatly underestimated Wyper when Shura thought that Wyper was attempting to use an Impact Dial similar to what Gan Fall used on him before when it was actually a Reject Dial.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Priests[edit | edit source]

He did not have a good friendship with Gedatsu, Ohm, and Satori. Between them, there is a type of competition that consists of who kills the criminal first and they will fight among themselves to know who is the strongest.

Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

Shura is often seeing riding his giant bird Fuza, thus being able to fly and attack enemies from above. The animal has a Flame Dial in his mouth, and so has the ability of breathing fire. Shura is also exceptionally durable, having survived being struck by a Reject Dial at point blank though he was knocked unconsious, while the same attack temporarily killed his superior Enel by stopping his heart.

Ordeal of String[edit | edit source]

Further information: Ordeals#Ordeal of String

Shura was the priest in charge of testing intruders with the Ordeal of String (紐の試練 Himo no Shiren?), which had a survival rate of 3%. The area where the Ordeal took place was filled up with long, almost invisible strands of String Cloud, which slowly trapped the transgressors, making them unable to move, and helpless against Shura's attacks.

Weapons[edit | edit source]

Further information: Heat Javelin

A Javelin with a Heat Dial.

Shura is one of the priests, making him one of the strongest fighters under the command of Enel. He fights with a spear called Heat Javelin (熱の槍ヒートジャベリン Hīto Jaberin?), which has a Heat Dial inside it, granting incendiary capabilities to the weapon, which burns whatever it strikes.

Haki[edit | edit source]

Further information: Haki

Shura has the ability known as Kenbunshoku Haki, but in the sky islands it is known as "Mantra". With Mantra, he can predict what his enemies are planning before they do it, and can act accordingly.

History[edit | edit source]

Sky Island Saga[edit | edit source]

Skypiea Arc[edit | edit source]

Shura burning the Merry with his javelin.

Soon after Zoro, Nami and Robin headed off in to the woods, leaving Chopper alone on Going Merry, Shura appeared at the Sacrificial Altar to take care of the offering. Realizing only one offer was ready, he was greatly irritated, and attacked Chopper. After first playing with his victim, destroying parts of Going Merry, he decided to kill Chopper. In the nick of time, Gan Fall appeared and the two fought a battle in the sky. After an even match, Shura used his ordeal to trap Gan Fall and pierce him with his lance.

After first trapping almost all of the Shandia warriors with his ordeal, Wyper, who was the only warrior not caught, moves in close to him and quickly defeats Shura with a Reject Dial. Shura was thereby the first person to be taken down in the survival game.

He has been banished along with the other priests to a desert cloud by the Shandia.[5]
