Can we have a list of different Asuras who appeared in different Yugas, as they play an important role in moving the story ahead.
eg. Tarakasur, Mahishasur - Sat-yuga
Ravan-Treta yuga
Narakasur- Dwapar yuga

Dwapar Yug- Kans,
Pootna,
Shishupaal

Add  Dantavakra  here- he is one of the original duo of Jaya - Vijaya who were cursed by the Sanat Kumara rishis.

Congratulations on post 1000 of this thread.  Time to get ready for the sequel thread, since we are approaching 150 pages.

Krsna_R

Here are some more to your list - yours just has Mahadev's enemies in the Satya Yuga

Satya Yug- 
Vritrasur, Tarakasur, Vidyunmali, Tarakaksh, Kamalaksh,
Mahishasur, Durgam,
Shumbh...Nishumbh,
Chanda, Munda, Dhumralochan, Raktabheej
Hiranyaksha, Hiranyakashipu, Madhu, Kaitabh


Treta Yug- 

Prahlad, Virochan, BaliMahishi, 
Ravana, Kumbhakarna, Indrajit, Vibheeshan, Madhu,
Shurpnkha, Tadka, Subahu, Mareech, Lavanasura, Bhimasura


Dwapar Yug- 

Kamsa, Pootana, Mushtika, Chunar,
Kalyavan, Jarasandha, Sishupala, Shalva
Dantavakra, Bakasura, Kirmira, Alambusha,
Hidimba, Ghatotkacha, Anjanparva, Banasura

Just one thing - the literature varies on whether Kamsa was a demon, but Sishupala & Dantavatra very clearly were not.  Yeah, Sishupala was born w/ 3 eyes & 4 arms, but once they fell off, he was normal, and a very ordinary warrior.  Same is true of Dantavatra.  Otoh, Shalva was pretty formidable and gave Krishna a tough battle.

Varaali,

Not sure about Mushtik.. But Chanur was a demon..
As also stated in 

Vasudev sutam devam, Kans' Chanur' mardanam |
Devaki paramanandam, Krishnam vande jagadgurum ||

And as per my knowledge (alpamati),
Chanur was kans' right hand ! 

Btw, was Mushtik the one who came in the form of a storm?

And Prahlad is known as the epitome of devotion na...?

Exactly my question. Also was thinking whether Kaling and Bothaki should be considered or not.
