Slaughter City is a place where there are no laws. It is a place where murder, rape, steal and all sorts of criminal activities occur. As long as you have the ability, you can do what ever you want. In the city all spirit master abilities are ineffective. To survive one must use their own physical strength and instinct. Spirit power can be used as a source of strength.
Slaughter City is a black city with a purple moon hanging right over it with a dark sky. The city is divided into the inner and outer city. The inner city is the truly lawless place. In the outer city casual murder is not allowed. Only those who have survived the Hell Slaughter Arena have the qualifications to live in the inner city.
Slaughter City was created thousands of years ago by a soul master who had broken through the 100th rank, and ascended to divine realm as Asura God. He created the city to provide a chance of soul masters to get innate domain ability, called "Deathgod Domain", which is first step for inheritance his godly seat in divine realm. But, this purpose corrupted by another soul master whom together with him advanced to divine realm, Rakshasa God. This is revealed by Tang Chen, the firs successor of Asura God, but his soul invaded by Bat King's soul after he killed it when was doing 8th trial of inheritance, mastering Asura Demonic Sword, a Ultra Divine Tool. The Bat King musn't be on the inheritance process in the first place, but Rakshasa God made it to ensure that there will be never a successor for Asura God. This hatred due to position of Asura God as God Law Enforcer in divine realm after ascended as god. After Tang Chen's consciousness fully controlled by the Bat King, the city lost its main purpose and became the current slaughter city, which fullfill by immoral behaviour. But, after Tang San poisoned blood river in slaughter city, 'puppet' Tang Chen went to search him. In the road, he met Hu Liena, and then met Tang San. After Tang San successfuly passed the 8th trial of Sea God inheritance, and grasped Sea God Trident, another Ultra Divine Tool, he had ability to purify evil spirit such as Bat King which corrode Tang Chen's conscioussness. After sobered, Tang Chen cant attempt the final trial of Asura God inheritance, because his life force was withering due to continously sucked by Bat King to weaken his resistance. But, he thank to Tang San to free him. In the end, Tang Chen made a trip to Sea God Island to meet his last lover. In the end of his life, he want Tang San to inherit godly seat of Asura, so he placed Asura Demonic Sword in the island. In the conversation between Tang Chen as Slaughter King when having battle with Tang San, there is info that Slaughter City's citizen has been annihilate due to poison, so perhaps there is no more Slaughter City. And after inherited Asura God, Tang San never rebuild the city again, but he build Sea God Lake and Sea God Pavillion in Shrek Academy territory.
