Dantavakra (Sanskrit: दन्तवक्र), was the king of Karusha according to the Mahabharata and the Puranas. According to the Padma Purana (VI.274.16-7), he was of Chaidya lineage. According to the Vishnu Purana (IV.XIV.40), he was son of Vriddhasharman and Shrutadeva. He was an ally of Jarasandha, brother of Shishupala and an enemy of Vasudeva Krishna. At MBh 2:30 he is mentioned as the king of the Adhirajas. Pandava general Sahadeva defeated him, making him pay tribute, he then was re-installed on his throne. He attacked Dwaraka after the Rajasuya sacrifice (which he had not attended, to protest the killing of Jarasandha) to avenge Shishupala—and was killed by Krishna in a mace-duel.
