This section of the list of rampage killers contains those cases that occurred in Asia.

This section does not include school massacres, workplace killings, hate crimes, or mass murders that took place primarily in a domestic environment, like familicides, which form their own categories. Cases where the primary motive for the murders was to facilitate or cover up another felony, like robbery, are also not included.

All abbreviations and footnotes used in the table are explained here.
