    Sludge Villain

A minor criminal and main antagonist of the series' first chapter.
  • Ambiguously Human: Of all the "humans" introduced so far, he is definitely the least human-like.
  • Blob Monster: A mud-like entity.
  • Grand Theft Me: He is able to take over the bodies of victims, and is also able to use their Quirks against their will.
  • Human Shield: Uses Bakugou as one to keep the heroes from attack him. It works until All Might creates enough gusts strong enough to blow him off of Bakugou.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Physical attacks are mostly useless against him, but he's still vulnerable to Blow You Away, so All Might manages to beat him by punching the air against him really hard.
  • No Name Given: He is never given a name. The closest thing he has to one is the name people gave to the event he was part of, "The Sludge Incident".
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Almost literally. All Might manages to imprison him in a plastic bottle in their first fight, but he is still able to easily escape.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: If it weren't for his existence, Izuku would never have convinced All Might to make him his successor, let alone met him.
  • Starter Villain: He is just a random criminal who serves to kickstart the plot and to showcase All Might's overwhelming power...

    Chizome Akaguro — "Hero Killer" Stain
Voiced by: Go Inoue (Japanese), Robert McCollum (English)

An independent villain who is famous for killing or crippling heroes that he considers "fakes" (essentially, Heroic Wannabes). He allies himself with the League of Villains not only to make it stronger, but also to strengthen Tomura as a villain as well. His Quirk is "Bloodcurdle".

A character in the prequel spinoff manga My Hero Academia Illegals, Stendhal, appears to share some similarities with Stain. At the moment, the nature of their connection is (while heavily implied) still unconfirmed.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Field Training Arc.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: Played with. A guy that can paralyze anyone through the tasting of their blood sounds as villainous as one can get, but the fact is that he was once an aspiring hero student himself, so at one point he was a case of Bad Powers, Good People.
  • Berserk Button: People who lack a clear sense of conviction, as in anyone who falls outside of Black and White Morality- essentially crooked people who waiver in the grey. It splits into two major categories: anyone who claims to be a hero but runs on selfish motivation, and anyone who chooses to be a villain but goes about it aimlessly. Anyone who falls under the second category are the people he hates most. Additionally, if someone's convictions waiver, he considers it a sin, because it makes them unworthy to wield power, especially without knowing what they plan on doing with it or going back on what they said they stood for.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Alongside Shigaraki, he was the main antagonist of the Field Training Arc. Also counts as The Heavy of the arc, as Shigaraki had more of an observer role during it.
  • Blood Lust: Part of Stain's Quirk requires bloodshed, and every single one of his attacks is designed to would his victims. After he tears people apart, he feasts on their blood.
  • Blood Magic: Not quite magic, per se, but ingesting a person's blood allows Stain to then immobilize them with his Quirk. Certain blood types are more susceptible to this than others.
  • The Cameo: He makes a surprise reappearance in Chapter 94 sharing the same prison as All For One.
  • Close-Range Combatant: His only ranged attacks seem to be hurling knives or his sword. This helps close the distance to use his Quirk.
  • Combat Pragmatist: A vicious fighter who ambushes solitary targets in dark alleyways. He'll also attack while an enemy is speaking.
  • Costume Porn: Stain has one of the most intricate and detailed designs out of anybody shown in the series, with little touches such as chains on his boots and a watch on his left wrist.
  • Death Glare: Izuku loses heart just staring into Stain's cold and piercing eyes, because unlike the villains who invaded the USJ building who were mostly talk, Stain's eyes are those of a killer. A real killer.
  • Determinator: Absolutely will not give up in his quest. When he's outnumbered and put into a disadvantageous position, he just fights that much more viciously. Even after being beaten into unconsciousness, he summons the strength to paralyze the winged Noumu and stab it in the brain when it tries to carry Deku away. In the end, he only relents after passing out from a broken rib perforating his own lung.
  • Died Standing Up: Subverted. At the end of his fight with Deku, Iida and Todoroki his broken ribs perforates his lung, but it's not lethal and he passes out while standing.
  • Dual Wielding: With his katana and any one of his array of knives.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Stain appears as The Stinger in the season 1 finale of the anime in order to entice viewers for season 2.
  • Enemy Mine: Toward Tomura and the Villain Alliance. Despite their starkly opposite opinions of All Might, they're able to make a tentative alliance over their shared desire to destroy the status quo.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • In spite of being a mass-murdering loon, Stain finds Tomura and his plans to be vile, equating him to a child throwing a temper tantrum, and stating that spilling blood without (what he considers to be) a proper cause is senseless.
    • His reasoning for crippling and even killing heroes is that they don't adhere to his standard for what a hero must be like. Personal pride, vendetta, or just not measuring up are all reasons for Stain to target you. In a sense, you call it "Evil Because He has Standards."
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • His respect for All-Might and desire for justice (though, a more extreme example) makes him another one for Izuku.
    • The conflict between him and Tomura is also a villainous echo of the one between All Might and Endeavor. Like Endeavor, Tomura is essentially a rival who resents Stain's popularity amongst the villain community and doesn't get why Stain gets so much respect and adulation.
  • Evil Is Cool: In-Universe, after Stain is captured many people including Iida admit that for a crazed murderer there was something "cool" about him. So much so that he inspired many up and coming villains to take up his cause and join the Villain Alliance.
  • Expy: His role in the story, and his status as a self proclaimed "Hero Killer", is similar to Garou.
  • Fallen Hero: As it turns out, he once was an aspiring hero himself, and went to a prestigious institution to train. However, after less than a full year there, he became jaded when he felt that the system had decayed and that heroes weren't becoming heroes for the right reasons anymore. And after spending some time as a street soapbox advocate for his ideals; he decided that violence, not words, was necessary in order to get his message across and to fix the system.
  • Fights Like a Normal: Since he needs to draw blood from his target before he can use his paralysis Quirk on them.
  • Four Is Death: His pattern is that whenever he operates in a particular area, he attacks at least four heroes before moving on.
  • Hero Killer: Has singlehandedly killed and maimed dozens of professional heroes, one shots a Noumu while already beaten to hell and then promptly intimidates two seasoned heroes without even trying. It's in his name and this is why.
  • Irony: He wants to purge society of heroes who only seek fame and glory. He's used by the Villain Alliance to promote villainy, exactly the opposite of his intentions.
    • The fact that Endeavor, a defining example of the Fake Heroes he sought to destroy, took credit for defeating him.
  • Killing Intent: One so terrifying that it freezes everyone in place, even Endeavor.
  • Knife Nut: Along with his katana, he has several combat knives on his person. Some of them are readily visible, but a few are hidden in his gear and a ton of sharp spikes on his boots. He needs all these blades because he relies on drawing blood to cripple his opponents.
  • Knight Templar: His goal might be considered noble to an extent, but his methods to attain said goal are definitely cruel and horrifying.
  • Licking the Blade: Not only does this show that he is a major psycho, but it's also his main method of activating his Quirk.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's so fast that Todoroki's fire and ice attacks can't keep up with him. When he gets serious, even Deku's 5% "Full Cowl" is outpaced. He's also strong enough to easily cut through Todoroki's ice. It's especially notable because his strength and speed aren't related to his Quirk.
  • Loony Fan: Of All Might. He attacks other heroes out of a belief that they've corrupted All Might's heroic ideal.
  • Meaningful Name: Killing seventeen named heroes and crippling twenty-three to the point of being unable to fully recover, including Ingenium, Iida's brother, demonstrably shows that his moniker is no joke.
  • Nightmare Face: On the verge of passing out, he gets so angry that he rips off his mask and shows everyone his grotesque skeletal features from the loss of his nose underneath to strike extreme terror into his opponents, and he throws off a Death Glare so potent that his eyes start wiggling around in their sockets. It freaks everybody out, even Endeavor.
  • '90s Anti-Hero: He's got the ideals and look of one. With how he's drawn, he looks like a cross between a Frank Miller and a Rob Liefeld character.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Even for My Hero Academia, Stain has a particularly menacing design.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Possibly as a result of his Quirk, but definitely a creepy and prominent trait.
  • Secret Test of Character: Uses this on Tomura, as Stain believes people only show their true face at death's door.
  • Shout-Out: His lack of a nose, bandana-mask, and the several sharp implements he wears on his person make Stain look like the Ninja Turtles during their Darker and Edgier early years.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He's only appeared outside of cameos in a single arc thus far, but his influence on the series both narratively and thematically is considerable.
  • Serial Killer: Of the Mission-Based variety. Stain thinks that he is making the world a better place by killing/crippling "fake" heroes.
  • Tautological Templar: Essentially, he believes that what he is doing is the right thing and is so dedicated that he matches the heroes in convictions.
  • The Noseless: Has a very strange, noseless facial structure that, when combined with his face mask/bandanna, oddly makes him bear more than a passing resemblance to an evil Ninja Turtle.
    • Once his mask is off, it's revealed that he almost definitely DID have a nose at one point, but now all that's left is a hole in the middle of his face.
  • The Paragon: In a rather dark twist of this trope, his hero-killing actions actually end up causing heroes to become more aware and competent at their jobs, with the murdered heroes being treated as "sacrifices" to reach that result.
    • In an ironic twist, it turns out that, after his defeat and his philosophy became more well-known, he became a paragon of a different kind; now several villains, being affected by his words and hearing about his affiliation with a "Villain Alliance", are starting to gravitate towards the Alliance.
  • The Paralyzer: His Quirk allows him to immobilize victims, by ingesting their blood.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Actually turns this around on himself, saying that All Might is the only "true" hero there is, and therefore he can't allow any other hero to defeat him.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Kind of. Stain wasn't actually part of the Villain Allaince, but Gran Torino believes that the Big Bad behind the Alliance used Stain to give them publicity, of a sort.
  • Vader Breath: Breathes rather loudly and raggedly with a "Hahh..." sound effect, with it often punctuating his speech.
  • Villain Has a Point: He chastises Iida during their fight for his need for vengeance, rather then trying to focus on helping a fellow hero which Stain injured. He then drives in the nail further by stating that Iida's actions taken are the furthest thing from being a hero.
  • Villain Respect: He respects All Might and Deku because, of all the heroes he faced, they're a pair of the truest heroes of all. Heck, it's to the point where the Hero Killer willingly saves Deku when a flying Noumu kidnapped the guy.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: He likes Deku because he's one of the few who unambiguously embodies what he feels a true hero is. This was probably a factor in him saving Deku from a flying Noumu, that was about to carry him off to who knows where.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Quirk-wise, he's not as strong as say, Todoroki or Deku. But he's honed his skills to the point that his Quirk can be used to its maximum potential. Combat ability-wise, he's on par with Eraserhead in this regard.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He targets heroes he consider unworthy, those who act for their own personal sake first and foremost instead of others'. Considering he's willing to spare, even rescue those he deems worthy, he's not entirely wrong.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Calls out Iida for focusing blindly on avenging his brother, rather than aiming to save the hero Stain injured.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Gives Iida a chance to back off when he notices how young he is, but decides to make an example of him when Iida calls himself Ingenium, a hero.
    Stain: Be careful of what you say. Depending on the situation, even children can become targets.
    Iida: Are you saying that I am... not even a target? Then listen, criminal! I am the younger brother of a hero you attacked. The younger brother of a most excellent younger brother! I have come to stop you in his place! Remember my name for as long as you live! Ingenium. It is the name of the hero who will defeat you!
    Stain: I see. ... Die.
  • You Will Be Spared: If he considers a Hero to have proved themselves as truly being Heroic, Stain will spare their life even if he has them at his mercy.
    • He will even go so far as to save them from others he considers to be wrong, such as when one of the mutated monsters grabs Midoriya, who at this point had proven himself to Stain as a real hero, and flies away with him, Stain kills the monster and brings Midoriya to safety.

Voiced by: Anri Katsu (Japanese)

A drug runner and the oldest sibling among a group of four octopod criminals. His Quirk makes him like an octopus/kraken. His younger siblings are triplets; two brothers and a sister who are all squid-like in terms of Quirk.

    Reservoir Dogs
A group of villains who appear to rob a convenience store in the surge of crime after All Might's retirement.
  • Always Someone Better: They manage to take down a pro hero, but are soon defeated by Overhaul's own group of villains.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: When they first appeared, it looked as if Overhaul had killed them via Body Horror. However, when they're referred to later while describing Overhaul's "destroy and repair" quirk, they're not only fine but apparently the whole experience removed ailments they'd been suffering beforehand.
  • Evil Is Petty: Lampshaded by Overhaul; how despite being made up of several villains gathered together, the group is content with merely robbing convenience store registers.
  • Harmful Healing: Their true fate, after being seemingly killed by Overhaul. After the intense pain, they saw their respective physical and mental diseases being entirely healed.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: They are used just to showcase Chisaki's villainy and power, as well as the Body Horror he can create with his quirk. Subverted on the sense that they aren't killed in the end.
  • Shout-Out: To the movie of the same name.


A group of dangerous Yakuzas, lead by Overhaul and with the plan of taking the Leader of the Underworld title that was once held by All For One.

    Chisaki — Overhaul
"Don't touch me."
A young and strange villain who is taking down other villains, believing them to be sick. His quirk, "Overhaul", allows him to assemble and disassemble anything.
  • Abusive Parents: If what he says about Eri being his daughter is true, then he's definitely this. He has been repeatedly drawing his daughter's blood for a while in order to create a quirk erasing-drug.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: He seems to have some degree of OCD, or of Mysophobia. As soon as he is touched, he gets extremely uncomfortable and violent, besides his constant comments about cleanness and dirtiness.
  • Animal Motifs: Everyone in his group wears some kind of beak like mask, much like his plague doctor's mask, making the lot of them look like birds.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Internship Arc, being the primary antagonist and the leader of the Hassaikai.
  • Bad Boss: He's fully willing to use his subordinates as meat shields, only seeing their deaths as minor inconveniences, and even kills a lackey after retrieving Eri because he let her get away.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: As a part of his quirk, he can simply destroy people with a single touch, apparently, blowing up people's upper half is a common move for him, having been used on both Magne and Rappa.
  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, DON'T touch him. Or he'll pop you like a zit. And we do mean "pop" in the most literal sense.
  • Cool Mask: Referring to his motif as a Plague Doctor.
  • Death Is Cheap: As a result of his quirk, he can kill and bring people back to life freely by tearing them apart and putting them back together again in an instant, so he doesn't really care if his underlings die and freely kills them when he gets pissed off. Rappa has apparently been killed and brought back 6 times due to challenging him to fights. But if someone is already long dead or Overhaul destroys someone past the point of no return, then that's that.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He blows off Compress's arm not for attacking him, but for simply touching him.
  • The Don: In contrast to Shigaraki's League of Villains, he is the leader of an organized crime syndicate with plans on bringing a proper return to the Yakuza.
  • Establishing Character Moment:
    • His first moment has him creepily stating that the sick villains must be cured.
    • And then there's him killing Magne by making his upper body explode.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Not in the case of Eri, obviously, but rather, someone else in the family entirely. Holed up somewhere in his compound is his father, who is clinging to life on a machine, and in all likelihood Chisaki's mentor and one of the key motivators behind why he hates sick people, because for some reason, he can't restore his father's health. However, Chapter 142 implies that he caused his illness in the first place because he didn't like how he was leading the organization.
  • Evil Plan: The details are unknown, but he has a big plan to "reinstate" the Yakuza, to which he needs large sums of money, which he likely intends to get by spreading a quirk cancelling drug around.
  • Eviler Than Thou: He sees himself as this to Shigaraki.
  • Exact Words: He believes that the sick villains must be cured and this is exactly that he has done to Reservoir Dogs, by healing them from their diseases after defeating them.
  • Foil: To Shigaraki. Both have Touch of Death powers, lead groups of villains and want to take the spot of All For One as king of the underworld. Shigaraki is however, a Psychotic Manchild, who often relies in sheer strength to solve a problem and ignores the idea of making complex plans or seeks any gain that is not simply to take All For One's spot, while Overhaul is level headed, keeps a calm tone all the time and has a bigger plan to take over, which includes large sums of money or getting Shigaraki's "overhyped villains". This goes down even to their design: both hide their faces, but while Overhaul still seems to have a relatively normal face that shows seriousness and calm, has dark hair and clear eyes, Shigaraki's hand covers all of his face besides his eyes and is way creepier, has gray hair and red eyes. Another thing is that Shigaraki, while skeptical at first, eventually learned to accept his teammates as True Companions while Overhaul sees his as expendable pawns and would kill them for minor infractions.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: It's a bit hard to notice, but he has a faint scar near his hairline on the upper left side of his forehead, the kind that looks like it was from surgery. If it has anything to do with his fear/hatred of disease, it wouldn't be the least bit surprising.
  • Good Powers, Bad People: His Quirk has both Touch of Death and Healing Hands functionality.
  • Hates Being Touched: Compress touches him, cue Overhaul looking very uncomfortable, "Don't touch me." cue Compress losing his entire left arm.
  • Healing Hands: Apparently his Quirk also encompasses healing, as the Reservoir Dogs have been shown to be alive, well, and cured of their illnesses.
  • The Leader: To the Hassaikai. The invasion reveals he is not well liked by his mooks, who prefer the old boss over him with only his inner circle and the Eight Bullets of the Hassai Group, minus Rappa, actually respecting him.
  • Plague Doctor: His motif. His Quirk, in addition to the ability to kill his targets with a single touch, he is seemingly able to heal the physical and mental diseases entirely, with the drawback of a moment of intense pain.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He generally wants to avoid killing people, mostly because he doesn't want to get their blood on him.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He makes sure that Shigaraki knows how little he thinks of the leader of the Villains Alliance, since he managed to lose after garnering the help of first grade villains such as Muscular, Stain and Moonfish.
  • Skewed Priorities: He's more concerned about his enemies touching him rather than attacking him, which is why he blew off Compress's arm.
  • The Starscream: Heavily implied. There was a prior boss to the Hassaikai before him, of which he was an underling, but the boss is now ill, with implications Chisaki is behind it, and he took over the organization to make it follow his own plans regarding the quirk-cancelling drug.
  • Touch of Death: Can cause people to explode with a touch.
  • Yakuza: And apparently one of the last few remaining in present day Japan since the rise of All Might, Magne had never even seen one before Overhaul, and Toga didn't even know what a Yakuza is. As Compress put it: "...He's an endangered species left over from old times." Overhaul says he isn't wrong.
  • Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: His default mode, which adds to his creepiness.
  • Would Hurt a Child: To Eri. Repeatedly too, as he has been repeatedly taking her blood it what appears to be a very painful process.

A member of the Hassaikai who serves as Overhaul's assistant.
  • Cool Mask: Following the motif for the rest of the Hassaikai Chronostasis wears a Plague Doctor mask that covers his entire face.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: Whips out a six-shot gun from under his raincoat the second it looks like Shigaraki is about to draw a weapon from inside his own coat.

    Joi Irinaka — Mimic
Click here to see him undisguised 

A member of the Hassaikai who serves as the group's General Manager. His Quirk is "Mimicry".
  • Animate Inanimate Object: His Quirk allows him to "inhabit" an object and control it at his whim. Normally, he can't possess an object larger than a refrigerator, but with the aid of a Quirk-boosting drug he takes over entire sections of the Hassaikai's hideout.
  • Fatal Flaw: His temper, which is tied to a sort of Inferiority Superiority Complex regarding his status as a yakuza member. He can't stand anyone disrespecting the organization to the point of going completely berserk, which can make him vulnerable.
  • Genius Loci: Through the help of the aforementioned Quirk-boosting drug, Mimic is capable of inhabiting entire locations, manipulating them as he wishes.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: The real Mimic is not a little guy wearing a black cloak, but rather appears to be a huge guy possessing the cloak itself. His real body is eventually shown in Chapter 147.
  • Last-Name Basis: Referred to as "Irinaka" or his nickname "Mimic" until Chapter 147, when his full name is given.
  • Wingding Eyes: His human pupils look like starbursts.

    Eight Bullets of the Hassai Group
Those boys will buy us time

We are all people who can no longer see purpose in being alive!

A group of eight villains whose sole purpose in life is to protect Overhaul, at all costs. They are composed by:

Tabe (Top row, first from the left), with the "Meal" Quirk.

Rappa (Top row, third from the left)

Setsuno (Bottom row, first from the left), with the "Larceny" Quirk.

Hojo (Bottom row, second from the left), with the "Crystallization" Quirk.

Tengai (Bottom Row, third from the left)

Tropes that apply to the group as a whole:

  • Anti-Villain: Some of them are treated as fairly tragic figures by the narrative, being people whose lives were destroyed by society and now only exist as Chisaki's tools.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: It's stated that all of them have been through a lot to get to that point of self-loathing and hatred filled existence.
    Hojo: Some got tossed aside when they don't mesh with society. Another was betrayed by a lover and beset with crushing debt. Not even allowed to die, he survived sucking down water from the gutter... and another became a tool for a simple money grubber. And when that pig realized my fake gems were worthless, we were deemed just as worthless and beaten to hell and back.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Two of them show up, together with Mimic and Chronostasis to help out against the Villain's Alliance.
  • Elite Mook: They do not seem to occupy a place much higher than normal mooks in their hierarchy, but they are definitely far stronger and much more dangerous since they don't care whether they live or die.
  • Plague Doctor: Some of them keep up with the motif, as set by their higher ups, but others not.
  • True Companions: The Bullets have this only in regards to each other, as they know that, to Overhaul, they're only tools.
    • The exception to this is Rappa.
  • Undying Loyalty:
    • To Chisaki, who they call just Boss, all of them are willing to die in order to give him time to escape with all he needs.
    • Averted with Rappa who has no particular loyalty to Chisaki, Rappa instead just being a Blood Knight who Chisaki can point at foes. Rappa himself only works with him because he wants to defeat him in a fight one day.
  • Villainous Friendship: Tabe, Hojo and Setsuno have this in spades, it's implied they joined Chisaki together and may have worked together beforehand.


  • Extreme Omnivore: Tabe's "Meal" allows him to devour and digest anything in his way instantly.
  • The Quiet One: Only speaks once to express how tasty Tamaki's octopus tentacles are, and even then it's barely two words.


  • Armor-Piercing Attack: Rappa is strong enough to break through Kirishima's and Fatgum's defensive quirks with ease.
  • Blood Knight: Even more than the others, Rappa throws himself cheerfully into battle and enjoys the opportunity to face opponents who aren't immediately crushed by his fists. He even tries to attack his partner Tengai when his barriers interfere with the fight.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Rappa operates according to his own view of respecting only the people who have proven to be strong, regardless of whether they are supposed to be his allies or enemies. He hates Tengai who doesn't have interest in a full blown fight, but grows to respect Fatgum and Kirishima's strength and determination in battle to the point of telling them about an infirmary close by to heal their wounds and let them tie up Tengai to arrest him later.
  • Brains and Brawn: Tengai and Rappa, respectively. Tengai calmly uses logic to see what's happening while Rappa just wants to fight the enemy.
  • Clothing Damage: Rappa got so excited in his fight with Fatgum and Kirishima, he inadvertently tore open his plague mask.
  • Dual Boss: More like Dual Midboss, but still appliable. Rappa and Tengai fight as a unit despite not really liking each other. Rappa deals damage with his attacks while Tengai protects them both with his barriers, making for a fearsome combo.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Rappa's preferred fighting style, and his brute strength is great enough to make it work.
  • Graceful Loser: Right as Fatgum is about to overpower both of them, Rappa smiles and lets him deliver the finishing blows and tells Tengai there's no point in trying to cast a barrier at full power because even that won't be enough to stop Fatgum's onslaught. Rappa got the all-out fight he wanted, and is satisfied to lose honorably.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Rappa's quirk allows him to dish these out and been shown to even damage Kirishima and Fatgum.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Rappa and Tengai. The former is a hot headed Blood Knight while the latter is a cold and calm Barrier Warrior.
  • Super Strength: Rappa demonstrates this, which even damages Fatgum's tanking and Kirishima's "Unbreakable" mode.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Rappa and Tengai don't really like each other and have different ways to approach a situation and even how they treat Overhaul. While Rappa shows a level of disdain for him and wants to beat everyone into a pulp, Tengai looks up to Overhaul and openly defends him while seeking the optimized way to defeat an opponent. Despite that, they still manage to work together perfectly well and bring down enemies while fighting between themselves.
  • Villain Respect: Rappa respects Fatgum and Kirishima's strength and determination in battle to the point of helping them out, though he considers the battle a draw since it was a fight to the death and all involved survived.


  • Bungled Suicide: Setsuno mentions that he tried to kill himself but a hero saved him, this resulted in him falling in further despair. He implies that the others were in a similar state when they joined Chisaki's organizations.
    Setsuno: We all threw our lives away long ago!
  • Despair Event Horizon: Attempted suicide after he was left with crushing debt by his ex.
  • Foil: To Amajiki. Both share a belief that they are worthless, but while Amajiki has people who attempt to counter these beliefs and actually believe in him, Setsuno's relationship with Chisaki only furthered his own self-worth issues and making Setsuno completely willing to die for him.
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: Setsuno is particularly prone to remark that Tamaki, as a hero, is unable to understand the self-loathing and desperation they all feel, as well as the bond they created with each other as a group of unwanted outcasts. Subverted as Tamaki not only understands, but also respect the bond they have.
  • Hidden Weapons: Setsuno hides a knife in his mask and uses it to attack Amajiki.
  • Impossible Thief: He is capable of instantly stealing anything a target possesses with his Larceny Quirk. However, it must be something within his view and small enough to fit in his hand.
  • Self-Deprecation: Setsuno doesn't hold himself in high regards and calls the entire group human trash, showing how expendable they are.


  • Despair Event Horizon: Implied to have crossed it a long time ago after being used to create gems with his quirk, then discarded when it was determined that the crystals he forms are worthless counterfeits.
  • Gemstone Assault: Hojo's Crystallization allows him to grow crystals from his body. It's similar to Kirishima's Hardening, in a way.


  • Barrier Warrior: Tengai's apparent quirk is to create barriers in order to support his partner. He is the "shield" to Rappa's "spear".
  • Brains and Brawn: Tengai and Rappa, respectively. Tengai calmly uses logic to see what's happening while Rappa just wants to fight the enemy.
  • Dual Boss: More like Dual Midboss, but still appliable. Rappa and Tengai fight as a unit despite not really liking each other. Rappa deals damage with his attacks while Tengai protects them both with his barriers, making for a fearsome combo.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Tengai keeps his eyes shut in a zen pose of concentration about 75% of the time, because he is a tranquil person unless deeply aggravated and is needs focus to channel his barriers. He opens his eyes in moments of surprise, curiosity (he opens one eye in incredulity), or annoyance.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Rappa and Tengai. The former is a hot headed Blood Knight while the latter is a cold and calm Barrier Warrior.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Rappa and Tengai don't really like each other and have different ways to approach a situation and even how they treat Overhaul. While Rappa shows a level of disdain for him and wants to beat everyone into a pulp, Tengai looks up to Overhaul and openly defends him while seeking the optimized way to defeat an opponent. Despite that, they still manage to work together perfectly well and bring down enemies while fighting between themselves.
