Yuga is the villain
of Samurai Tamashii (SS64) and Samurai Tamashii: Asura Zanmaden (SS64:
She can't maintain her body outside of Makai so she created a temporary
body to use in the human world. This is why she has the physical figure
of a male. Twenty years ago, she took out babies from a mothers stomach
and cast a certain spell on them. After a few day, she would return the
baby and the mother would give birth to the child as if nothing happened.
The child would show incredible intelligence or incredible athletic ability.
These children were called "Shindou" (the child of god) or "Kidou" (the
child of a demon).
Twenty years later, these children would grow to become
incredible adults. Yuga would then appear before these adults and would
cast a spell on them. Using these people, she was able to construct
a body for herself in the human world. Her plan was to merge Makai and
the human world together so that evil could reign. But to do this, she
needed the Hanyo no Otoko, Han-in no Onna and a pure infant child. He was
able to obtain the Han-in no Onna, Shiki. And he stole the unborn child
from Kei's stomach to use for the pure infant child. He tried to use Shiki
to capture Haohmaru.
But her physical
body was instead defeated by Haohmaru, Nakoruru
and Rimururu. A year later,
she plotted once again to merge the world of Makai and the human world.
This time, she was able to capture both Haohmaru and Shiki. She put them
under her spell and created Hanmen no Asura as well. Everything seemed
perfect til the very end. Hanmen no Asura betrayed Yuga and sided with
the other Asura. She was finally defeated by the two Asura's. Twenty years
later, she tried to take over Mikoto
but was stopped by
Yuda (the two Asura's merged
into one and became him) and Shiki's spirits. Yuga also created Gandara

First of all, what a cool and artistic design. Very very different for Samurai Shodown. Yuga is a "she" but
uses the body of a man? I've seen some weird fighting game character designs in
my day... but wow. Yuga is "out there"... even for SNK.
Even though Yuga is pretty weird and definitely creepy, she's is a unique-looking design. At the moment, I can't recall much about her moveset in the SS64 games or SS2! Pocket. I'll have to give this character another look real soon. Also worth mentioning, Yuga seems like sort of a successor to Amakusa.
