    Main Characters 

Shuto Katsuragi/Ratman

A hero otaku who was given the powers of Ratman. His idolization of heroes began when he was very young, and the legendary superhero Shiningman saved him from a collapsing building. Crea insists that he was chosen to be Ratman because nobody in their right mind would guess that someone as small as him would be Ratman.

Classmate of Shuto who has a crush on him. She is a member of Jackal who recommended him for being Ratman. She lost her parents at a young age and was then raised by Crea.


Rio Kizaki/Cat Girl Rio

Sempai of Shuto and Mirea. Daughter of the president of the Heroes' Association who dreams of being a hero herself someday to help people. Her father does not want her to become a hero.

  • Card Carrying Villains: Crea has stated their goal is world domination, but she was lying.

Gengo Mizushima

The Grandfather of Crea and Mirea.


  • Evil Old Folks: "Evil" being used subjectively.
  • Hidden Depths: He actually knows and understands his granddaughter very well, and the only real reason he's involved in mad science or supervillainy is because he feels her revenge plot is something she needs to go through with for her own sake. He also believed, correctly, that Shouichiro was innocent all along.
  • Mad Scientist: He looks the part more than his grandchildren.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: He's even shorter than Shuto, which is saying something.

The Combatant Jackies

The three foot soldiers of Jackal.

A member of S-Security.


Shiki Kazamori/Unchain

A young man who somehow has powers despite not having the special equipment most heroes rely on. Soon after he's introduced, he uses his powers to save Shuto's life and they quickly become friends. However, he's also a guinea pig for a very shady branch of the Heroes' Association, and has become their latest S-Ranked hero: Unchain. He was abused as a child because his parents feared his powers.


A-List

Masato Saeki/ANKaiser

A hero who worked for the security company ANK Security. After the company flopped, he retired from being a hero but became one again when his gym hired him to be their commercial hero and renamed itself Kaiser Boxing Gym.

  • Action Girl: One of the youngest superheroes registered at the Association, but holds an A-rank.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her uniform exposes much of the front of her body.
  • Blue Blood: The motif and themes of her hero-self shows elements of this. The company that sponsors her is apparently a very elite, highly respected company that has been trading and making high-quality fabrics and gowns for several centuries.

  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Her hero name and costume are evocative of Shinto.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: As Ame-No-Uzume-No-Mikoto she wears one that invokes female kami. It is also a literal scarf of asskicking, as she can direct it to protect her or attack.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Is Shuto's kohai, and calls him her sempai.
  • This Is a Drill: Can wrap her scarf around her sword to transform it into a drill, increasing its offensive power.
