Dānavavaryahantṛ (दानववर्यहन्तृ) refers to the “slayer of the chief of the Asuras” and is used to describe Kārttikeya (i.e., Kumāra—Śiva’s son), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.12 (“The story of Śiva and Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu said to Kārttikeya: “Obeisance to you of good features, obeisance to you who confer auspiciousness on the universe, O kinsman of the universe, obeisance be to you. Obeisance to you, O purifier of the universe. Obeisance to you, the slayer of the chief of the Asuras (dānavavaryahantṛ). O lord, obeisance to the slayer of the Asura Bāṇa. Obeisance to the destroyer of Pralamba. Obeisance to you of holy features. Obeisance to you, O son of Śiva. [...]”.
