    Bah Wiki is better at explaining things.

    Aku is voiced by the late Makoto Iwamatsu.

    Aku

    Aku is an evil shape-shifter, the show's main antagonist. His name means "evil" or "wickedness" in the Japanese language. He is similar to Akuma, the evil demon with burning eyes from Japanese mythology. The two-part Episode Special The Birth of Evil shows his origins: shortly after the birth of the universe, a gigantic, black entity of pure evil emerged into the depths of space, and was all but destroyed by three god-like beings known as "the deities" - Odin, Ra, and Rama. During the battle a small fragment fell away from the entity and drifted through space for an unknown period of time before falling to Earth during the era of the dinosaurs, thereby causing their extinction. This fallen fragment became Aku, a dark sickness that infected the land, slowly but surely spreading around the country and plaguing everything in its path throughout the course of Earth's primitive history. Aku first appeared in the region ruled by Jack's father, who attempted to destroy Aku with a poison arrow. The arrow, however, did not destroy Aku but instead somehow released him, giving him his self-awareness, personality, humanoid form and the capacity to shape-shift. Jack's father was chosen by the deities to destroy Aku, and at the end of their epic battle Aku was imprisoned within the earth in the form of a giant tree.

    Aku returned several years later, having been reawakened by an eclipse, and captured Jack's father, enslaving his kingdom. Following Jack's banishment into the future Aku successfully took control of the entire planet, turning it into a bizarre dystopia, inhabited by extraterrestrials, robots, cyborgs, and other strange beings. This represents a change in Earth's history, so Aku's future must be considered to be an alternate reality.

    Aku continues to antagonize Jack, often proactively attacking him while other times defending himself from Jack's own gambits. The two seem doomed to never defeat each other, for though Jack has bested Aku on numerous occasions, Aku merely transforms into a small creature and escapes, usually calling out a taunt over his shoulder as he flees (this is parodied in episode IIL, "Jack Versus Aku").

    [edit] Aku's powers

    Aku can shape shift to almost any form he desires, from a giant dragon to a small bat, or even a beautiful woman ("Ikra"). He can grow tall or fall apart into several smaller replicas of himself.

    Aku possesses a wide knowledge of magic that varies from episode to episode as the situation demands. A few examples include: teleportation, magical attacks, summoning storms, and creating gold out of nothing. He requires no food, water, or air and is capable of interstellar travel. He also has the ability to spy on Jack from a large sphere that he can summon at will in his tower.

    Aku's body is nearly immune to all forms of common attack. If wounded, his wounds heal in moments. However, he is very vulnerable to Jack's sword, which is capable of inflicting severe pain to him even from the slightest cut. Wounds from Jack's sword take much longer to heal than normal wounds, but they do heal in time. It has been repeatedly implied that Jack's sword is the only thing capable of destroying Aku; he is morbidly afraid of it, and will only engage Jack in combat if Jack is somehow disarmed, or if Aku has no other choice but to defend himself.

    [edit] Aku's world

    In the future where the story takes place, Aku is the dictatorial ruler of the world. From this position, he has access to almost anything he desires. He seems to have a nearly limitless robotic army of bounty hunters, war machines, and mechanized monsters that he constantly uses to pursue Jack. As a master of dark magic, he also has a variety of monsters ready to do his bidding.

    Aku, despite all his powers, is still not the supreme power on the planet. He was unable to best three elemental spirits who guarded a treasure (the treasure being a jewel that can control water), where Jack was able to defeat these elementals by tricking them into getting tangled up in one another. There are also other warriors and beings Aku fears, and his minions attempt to destroy these beings.
