Ashura Blaster (阿修羅ブラスター?) is a 1990 vertically scrolling shoot 'em up arcade game developed by Visco and both published and distributed by Taito. The player controls a helicopter (selecting 1 of 4 bomb configurations) and shoots enemies in the air and ground, collects power-ups, and defeats bosses to advance levels.

The kanji characters on the titlescreen read 'Ashura'. Ashura is a demon related to fighting.
