The devasura (god-titan) is a class of god belonging to the same realm of Tavatimsa heaven.

Vepacitti is said to be the king of this sort of asura.

The devasura is definitely not included in the type of being in the plane of misery. Only the peta-asura and niraya-asura are accounted as beings of the apaya-bhumi.
