"Demonic Demise Dragon, Azi Dahaka", or simply "Azi Dahaka", is the second main antagonist of the first season of Future Card Buddyfight and Season 3 of Future Card Buddyfight Triple D. He is an evil buddy monster hailing from Darkness Dragon World and was the buddy of Kyoya Gaen. In Triple DDD, he is known as Black Sky Sun Dragon, Azi Dahaka Daeva.
He is voiced by Tony Valdez in the English dub, and Kinryuu Arimoto in the Japanese dub.
Azi Dahaka first appears as an entity with 3 floating dragon heads that have 2 pairs of horns and glowing red eyes.
In his true appearance, he is a large gray three-headed dragon with fuchsia accents and a large array of blade-like protrusions and armor that envelop most of his body. His torso forms a mouth-like design, all three of his eyes are red in color, even though he has three heads, he seems to only have a single personality.
As "Great Demonic Dragon of Demise, Azi Dahaka ", his size has grown larger, his wings became longer and wider with more exaggerating details, and became light blue with blue stripes in exchange for orange color with red stripes, the eyes on hs chest became white instead of red, his overall color becomes dark blue in exchange for purple, his overall design also has more "warrior" armor-like scales.
As "Black Sky Sun Dragon, Azi Dahaka Daeva", he has evolved to a much larger and more ferocious size and form, becoming the largest Black Dragon in the anime. He now has 5 heads, 3 regular heads, 2 attached to his wings, and one on his lower torso, his details become more exaggerating and more sinister-like, giving off a more villainous and deity-like form. He has 4 pairs of red eyes in each of his (3) base heads, his horns and teeth growing longer, and has a lower body with 4 legs.
Like his buddy, Kyoya Gaen, Azi Dahaka seeks for power, believing that he is order itself, he's fierce, dangerous and inserts himself on the top of power. He is sadistic considering how he actually sees his defeat as a sign of his opponent's demise.
In Episode 13, he is shown to own several battle arenas where he forces monsters from several worlds to fight in order to gather members for his army. When Tasuku was investigating Aibo Academy, he ran into Azi Dahaka and was dragged to the arenas.
He reappeared underwater in Episode 22 when Kyoya Gaen called him using his Dark Core Deck Case to attack a cruiser in order to lure Tasuku Ryuenji into using Future Force. He displayed the match between Gao and Kiri during Disaster's meetings, showing their strength of being candidates of the Dark Core.
When Tasuku and Gao invade Disaster's base, he appears with Kyoya and wins against Tasuku. During the Gaen Cup, he informs Kyoya that the Buddy monsters captured by the Grim Reaper were released and his Battle Arena is destroyed, which was the work of Kiri and his buddy Ice Blade Joker.
Azi Dahaka makes his first full appearance during Gao and Kyoya's battle, where he introduces himself by threatening everyone, and proceeds to wipe out Gao's whole field and leave him with only 1 life and Drum who survived with his Soulguard. Gao is able to defeat Azi Dahaka, but as he is destroyed he warns Gao that doing so was a huge mistake, and he uses his ability to allow Kyoya to equip Demonic Demise Sword, Aqulta Gwaneff.
Season 2: Hundred
Azi Dahaka made a brief appearance during Buddyfight Hundred in an attempt to control Yamigedo with Kyoya Gaen, however, they only awaken the great fiend and turned him into stone.

During their brief fight, even till at the present, Azi Dahaka continues to mock Abygale, telling him that he wants to see how strong he has grown, for that is his only reason of sparing the black dragon.
