As the champion of the 12th Gundam Fight and the former King of Hearts, Master Asia (aka Toho Fuhai) was the most powerful martial artist in the world. He was also the mentor of Neo Japan’s Domon Kasshu, but he hid a dark secret as a servant of the JDG-00X Devil Gundam. After pretending at first to be Domon’s ally, Master Asia revealed the Master Gundam, which was hidden beneath his old GF13-001NH Kowloon Gundam. Since Master Asia was powerful enough to destroy mobile suits on his own, the Master Gundam was simply an extension to his superhuman fighting skills. No other mobile fighter in the entire 13th Gundam Fight was more powerful than the Master Gundam, save the Hyper Mode of Domon Kasshu’s GF13-017NJII God Gundam. As with the Kowloon Gundam, Master Asia was able to control the Master Gundam without having to use the standard fighting suit of the Mobile Trace System. Since Master Asia used his belt as his main weapon in normal combat, the master cloth served the identical function of the kowloon cloth. The Master Gundam’s hands could also extend to far distances and function as a projectile weapon. The hands also contained beam cannons that could emit powerful beams. Master Asia also had several ultimate attacks, including the Choukyuu Haou Den’eidan from the Kowloon Gundam. He also used the Darkness Finger, a powerful variant on Domon’s Shining Finger. Master Asia also had the Juuni Ouhouhai, in which he could attack an enemy with multiple miniature copies of himself. Master Asia’s most powerful ultimate attack was the Sekiha Tenkyouken, a ball of powerful energy. Master Asia was also capable of creating a golden Hyper Mode like other fighters. In addition to these armaments, the Master Gundam was singular in its use of the mobile horse Fuunsaiki, piloted by a real horse of the same name.

When Master Asia revealed his nefarious intentions, Domon realized that he had to train hard to be able to fight his former master. During the time that Domon trained in the Guiana Highlands, Master Asia watched from nearby until the Devil Gundam was ready to reveal itself. After a fierce battle, the Master Gundam was apparently destroyed along with the Devil Gundam. However, the Master Gundam possessed the self-regeneration abilities of the Devil Gundam and reappeared in Neo Hong Kong for the Gundam Fight Finals. As the Finals began, Master Asia conspired with Wong Yun Fat to resurrect the Devil Gundam. He and Wong arranged for Domon to fight the most powerful opponents to prepare Domon to be the new pilot for the Devil Gundam. Unfortunately, Master Asia’s health began to slowly fail him, and he also had to deal with Wong’s machinations. During the Battle Royal on Lantau Island, Domon killed his brother Kyoji and defeated the Devil Gundam again. Afterwards, Master Asia fought his student for the last time and revealed his true intentions. Disgusted by the destruction caused by the Gundam Fight, Master Asia hoped to use the Devil Gundam to destroy humanity and restore the Earth to its natural condition. During this final battle, Domon finally bested Master Asia and defeated him. Soon after, Master Asia died, passing on the King of Hearts symbol to Domon, along with the title Gundam of Gundams as the winner of the fight. After the Gundam Fight ended, Master Asia’s horse Fuunsaiki chose Domon as its new master.
