!Salt Middle School
[[folder:Tome Kurata]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AtsumiTanezaki (Japanese), Creator/CheramiLeigh (English), Betzabe Jara (Latin American Spanish)
[[quoteright:138:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tome.png]]

The president of the Telepathy Club, Tome Kurata (暗田トメ; ''Kurata Tome'') has one passion: the paranormal. Her initial goal is to communicate with aliens via telepathy, and she demands that Mob help her find espers in hopes of locating a telepath. [[spoiler:Once she's finally made contact with aliens, she pursues a job at Reigen's office, wanting to learn more about the supernatural.]]
----
* AgentMulder: She's the only one in the Telepathy Club who actually believes in telepathy and using it to contact extraterrestrials, while the other members are just there to slack off.
* AscendedExtra: She assumes the role of the main character in ''Reigen'', since she's [[spoiler:an unofficial employee of Spirits and Such]] by that time.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: In ''Reigen,'' she's the first ONE protagonist not to have any sort of special abilities, either earned or naturally-gained. Also unlike Mob, instead of being more interested in living a normal life and being more popular, but sort of happening into unusual situations, Tome wants to become more deeply entrenched in the supernatural and occult of the world while being pushed away from it by others, and doesn't care about more mundane goings-on in life.
* DamselInDistress: She ends up in at least three perilous situations in the ''Reigen'' spinoff. It's justified in the sense that each of them were supernatural themed and Tome has no powers or past experiences to rescue herself.
* {{Determinator}}: Will overcome any kind of hurdles to keep the club afloat, even when the other club members point out that they really don't do anything of substance.
-->''President... we haven't done anything so far.''
** [[spoiler:She also hounds Reigen for a job at Spirits and Such, refusing to take "no" for an answer.]]
* GoalInLife: She wants to figure out telepathy so she can use it to communicate with aliens and other extraterrestrial lifeforms.
* TheLadette: She's loud, crass, obnoxious, and loves video games (and aliens). She also seems to get along better with boys than with girls.
* LargeHam: She has a tendency to overreact and showcase her eccentric side when interacting with people.
* ManipulativeBastard: Can be this at times - she's particularly fond of CrocodileTears as a means to an end.
* PluckyOfficeGirl: [[spoiler:By Chapter 101, she's been the secretary at Spirits & Such for a few months, and accidentally causes Reigen to drop his birthday cake in an attempt to get a raise. ''Reigen'' reveals that she isn't really paid at all, meanwhile, and in fact just sort of decided she works there.]]
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She's the only female member of the Telepathy Club, although she is their leader which makes for an unusual variation of the trope.
** In ''Reigen'', [[spoiler: she's the first, and only, girl to join the Spirits & Such team]].
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Despite the name of the spin-off, Tome is the main protagonist while Reigen continues as the ''deuteragonist''.

[[caption-width-right:350:Left to right: Mameta, Shirihiko and Haruto]]

Three stooges who are part of the (defunct) Telepathy Club. Unlike their president, they only joined the club so they can goof off and spend their freetime eating junk food and playing video games.
----
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Shirihiko has a dark skin color compared to his friends.
* {{FlatCharacter}}: We don't know much about their personal interests or goals in life.
* {{Foil}}: To the Body Improvement Club. While they're genuinely good hearted kids who want to enjoy their youth, they prefer to spend that time lazing around and eating junk food compared to how health conscious and physically productive the BI Club is.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: [[spoiler: Mameta ends up being taken by aliens due to a misunderstanding. During his ten day journey, the boy becomes something of a popular idol among the aliens as he looks for a way to return home]].
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Despite their club being dedicated to researching aliens and the supernatural, they use it as a cover just to goof off.
* TheSlacker: They're only known for their unwillingness to improve themselves and would rather play around all day.
* ThemeNaming: Their last names are based on the animal characters featured in the Japanese fairy tale {{Literature/Momotaro}}. Inukawa has "inu" which means "dog", Saruta has "saru" which means "monkey" and Kijibayashi has "kiji" which means "pheasant".
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Haruto has dark green hair.

[[folder:Tsubomi Takane]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Uki Satake (Japanese), Creator/RyanBartley (English), Alessia Becerril (Latin American Spanish)
[[quoteright:160:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tsubomi.png]]

->''"Get a clue."''

Tsubomi Takane (高嶺ツボミ; ''Takane Tsubomi'') is an attendee of Salt Middle School that Mob also goes to, making them classmates. Apparently, she and Mob were childhood friends, and Mob has a rather huge crush on her.
----
* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: Downplayed. But Anime Tsubomi is notably a little more cheerful and lively than her Manga counterpart, who comes across as a little more introverted and demure. Anime Tsubomi was also seen to actually be impressed by Mob's powers at first before getting bored later, while manga Tsubomi was not impressed from the get-go. Anime Tsubomi is also shown more to act like she has known Mob and considers him a friend as she should be as seen with her trying to cheer Mob on during the marathon (before stopping suddenly) as opposed to the manga where she is only seen in a single panel looking at Mob without saying anything.
* ChildhoodFriends: She and Mob used to be pretty close when they were younger. Although they somewhat drifted apart when Tsubomi lost interest in Mob's powers and began to hang out with other kids.
* FantasticallyIndifferent: Used to be impressed when Mob showed off his powers to her as kids, but the novelty quickly wore off. At one point she is glad to see him using his powers to help others, though.
* GaussianGirl: Mob tends to view her with a faint, sparkly pink glow around her, while everyone else just looks like walking vegetables to emphasize his tunnel vision towards her.
* HeroicWillpower: She is said to be strong-willed, the kind of person that doesn't follow the crowd. [[spoiler:She was one of the last people to join the broccoli cult, as her will resisted with ease for a long time.]]
* HiddenDepths:
** While we've seen very little of her, Dimple claims that she's 'too much woman' for Mob to handle based on what he's observed, and Ichi claims that she's hiding her real self. We know that she isn't impressed by Mob's power, and her reaction to [[spoiler:a tornado coming her way in the midst of a city-destroying earthquake is to sit on a bench and wait for the person she's meeting when everyone else had already evacuated.]]
** She also seems to be more perceptive than she looks. When she visits Reigen's office with a friend who's looking for relationship advice, she makes up a story about liking someone and asks advice from Reigen to test if he's really legitimate.
* JustFriends: [[spoiler:Ultimately, how she sees herself and Mob. She does care for him, but she never really saw him in a romantic light and rejects his confession near the end of Chapter 100.]]
* {{Malaproper}}: In the live action version, she does this a minimum of once per episode. In fact, a fake love letter designed to lure Mob does the Kanji version of this, substituting the kanji for "like" with the kanji for "boner"... demonstrating that she's notorious in-universe for this trope.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: In the anime, her eyes are drawn in a more typical anime style, being bigger and shinier, as opposed to the beadier eyes the rest of the cast has.
* PeerlessLoveInterest: Everyone thinks that she's ''way'' out of Mob's league and that he doesn't have a shot with her. [[spoiler:They're right.]]
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Other than being Mob's childhood friend and the subject of his crush, she doesn't have further character development and rarely appears at all because Mob and every other boy doesn't have the guts to even talk to her.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: She doesn't show up a lot, but impressing her is a large part of what motivates Mob and fuels his CharacterDevelopment.

[[folder:Musashi Gouda]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ToshihikoSeki (Japanese), Creator/PatrickSeitz (English)
[[quoteright:171:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/musashi.png]]

->''"I'm not gonna give him up! We are training buddies! You've always been working so hard!"''

The president of the Body Improvement Club. Despite his appearances, he is an extremely kind soul who despises violence and wants nothing more than to support those who want to improve their bodies.
----
* DumbMuscle: He's the least knowledgeable of his crew. In compensation, Musashi has a [[JusticeWillPrevail great sense of justice]].
* FaceOfAThug: Has been confused for a delinquent multiple times, even though it could not be farther from the truth. [[spoiler:It's implied that this being true for him, as well as the rest of the Body Improvement Club, is why they're introduced with only just enough members to count as a club, while the manga ends with much more novice members due to Mob's less threatening appearance.]]
* HeroicBuild: Is quite muscular, and is an extremely NiceGuy with a [[JusticeWillPrevail great sense of justice]].
* JusticeWillPrevail: A strong believer in this trope.
* LovableJock: Shares this trope with all fellow members of the Body Improvement Club.
* MartialPacifist: He hasn't built his body for violence, but when he hears another school took Mob as a hostage, Musashi ''flips out''.
* MusclesAreMeaningful: When Dimple takes over Musashi to protect Mob from an esper with psychically-enhanced muscles, he points out Mob was right all along and that the villain's power is no match for Musashi's diligent training.
* NiceGuy: He's willing to stick out for anyone who needed help, and is supportive of Mob. He even allows the Telepathy Club to continue using the room they were in, since they really only needed a place to store their equipment. [[spoiler:When Tenga is falsely accused by the Student Council of being a pervert, tainting his reputation, Musashi decides to help him shape up. Musashi also knows that Tenga isn't actually a pervert and defends Tenga from Shinji when he tries to get him expelled.]]
* TheWorfEffect: His group is a force to be reckoned with, but they're no match for Teruki's psychic powers or any antagonistic espers they come across.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Who knew that the muscled president of the Body Improvement Club is actually ''fourteen-years-old''?

----
* BaldOfAwesome: Jun has a shaved head and has admirable physical skills.
* BerserkButton: They will become hostile if anyone tries to hurt their club member [[TheBabyOfTheBunch Mob]].
* DelinquentHair: Hiroshi has a blond mohawk and Ryohei has an exceptionally pointy hairstyle. But they're far from delinquents once you get to know them.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Hideki has a dislike for bell peppers.
* DumbMuscle: Zigzagged. Studies aren't their forte but each member has one or two subjects that they're good at.
* {{Foil}}: To the Telepathy Club. While they're good-hearted kids who want to enjoy their youth, the BI Club is dedicated to daily training and improving their physical stamina. Compared to the Telepathy stooges who spend their days eating junk food, reading manga and playing video games.
* HiddenDepths:
** Hiroshi is good at art and has the most work experience out of the club.
** Jun has an interest in animals and dreams of being a veterinarian.
** Hideki is really great at singing.
* LovableJock: Bless these boys, their hearts are as big as their bodies and they're always considerate and kind to each other and those around them.
* PassingTheTorch: [[spoiler: In Chapter 101, Jun Sagawa becomes the new president of the club with Mob as his vice president]].
* SixthRanger: [[spoiler: Tenga decides to become a permanent member of the club since [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe they were the only ones to support him when he was being targeted by the student council]]]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Just like they're president, they're 14-15 year old boys with the appearances of full grown adults.

[[folder:Ichi Mezato]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AyumiFujimura (Japanese), Creator/AbbyTrott (English), Nycolle González (Latin American Spanish)
[[quoteright:115:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ichi.png]]

->''"This is your chance to man up. What will you do, Mob?"''

A member of the News Club who met Mob during her investigation on the LOL cult. Afterwards, she becomes a member of the Psycho Helmet cult, who are former members of LOL who see Mob as their savior and are on a search for him. She keeps pestering Mob to take over the cult, but also realizes that he's far from ready for such a role of leadership.
----
* AdaptedOut: She does not appear in the live action version in any capacity.
* AChildShallLeadThem: Despite being in middle school, she's the main organizer of the Psycho Helmet cult with many of its members being adults.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: While it's not the only reason she is helping the cult, Dimple points out that a large part of her desire to see Mob take his place as Lord Psycho Helmet is just because she wants to have played a part in such a massive event.
* IntrepidReporter: She is first introduced infiltrating a shady cult in order to write a story about them.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Mezato has an opportunistic streak in her, taking advantage of Mob's reputation and dreams to further her own.
* KidDetective: She likes investigating mysteries, and given that she finds out the truth about Mob but doesn't tell anyone seems to point to her liking the detective part of her job more than the reporter.
* SecretKeeper: A member of the Psycho Helmet cult, and the only one who knows that Psycho Helmet is actually Mob.

[[folder:Tenga Onigawara]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YoshimasaHosoya (Japanese), Creator/RayChase (English), Bruno Coronel (Latin American Spanish)
[[quoteright:174:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tenga_7.png]]

The bancho of Salt Middle School. Despite his rough reputation, he has a perfect school attendance record.
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Deconstructed. Because of his violent behavior, no one in the school likes him. His own friends aren't afraid to talk negatively about him to his face. [[spoiler:He learned this the hard way when Shinji and Ritsu frame him for stealing the girls' recorder mouthpieces and licking them. Even if it was obvious that he's being set up, everyone hates him to the point that they don't care if he did it or not and just use this as an excuse to get rid of him. Even his friends won't talk to him after the incident, including his female childhood friend. He was so hurt by this that he stopped showing up to class, which ruined his perfect attendance record he was so proud of. Once he realized how much he was hated, he decides to change himself after the incident and he gets better once he joins the Body Improvement club.]]
* DelinquentHair: Sports a "Regent" pompadour, and is a delinquent.
* EtTuBrute: He experiences this trope when a female classmate (and his only friend) [[spoiler:believes Shinji and Ritsu's accusations of being a pervert, despite them being total bullshit.]]
* ExhaustedEyebags: Has very prominent ones despite being a teenager.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: After his suspension, Tengan decides to give up the bancho life and becomes part of the Body Improvement Club. Although he still has his ill-temper]].
* HiddenDepths: Despite his delinquent behavior, he's proud at maintaining his perfect attendance at school.
** He also dreams of becoming a mangaka when he grows up.
* HotBlooded: Is willing to punch someone at the first sign of provocation.
* JapaneseDelinquents: The story takes place in Japan, and he's a delinquent, so automatically he's this.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Despite (badly) lying that he doesn't care what people think during the School Cleanup, [[spoiler:Onigawara skipping his classes tips off the Body Improvement club as to just how badly he was hurt by it.]]
* RapidFireFisticuffs: The Oni Rush, a 16-hit string of punches. It's a ShoutOut to [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Josuke's stand Crazy Diamond]]. Very fitting considering they both sport the delinquent with a pompadour look.
* UnprovokedPervertPayback: He at one point is accused of stealing and licking recorder mouthpieces belonging to several female classmates, causing him to be seen as a pervert and verbally assaulted by the whole class. [[spoiler:He was actually the target of a school-wide FrameUp created by Ritsu and Shinji.]]
* WorthyOpponent: Despite never facing him in direct combat, Tenga has deep respect for Mob's "shadow leader" power and refers to him as the strongest of them all.

[[quoteright:248:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shinji_kamuro_anime.png]]

The StudentCouncilPresident of Salt Middle School.
----
* AbusiveParents: Has strict, controlling parents and lives in the shadow of an arrogant brother who berates him constantly, which explains why Shinji looks and acts so shady.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: His brother, apparently. The fact that his brother also emotionally abuses him doesn't help at all.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:He resigns from his position after the Big Cleanup goes out of control, admitting his mistake to the other students. [[EasilyForgiven They reelect him anyway]].]]
* BigBrotherBully: His older brother emotionally abuses him by constantly deriding his lack of talent and academic skill. [[spoiler:Eventually when his brother realizes his constant berating statements are making Shinji perform ''worse'' rather than [[ToughLove motivating Shinji to work harder and prove him wrong]], he relents and begins trying to patch things up. His parents are still assholes, though.]]
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: Has deep worry lines, with the undersides of his eyes being extremely dark. [[spoiler:After he's removed from and reinstated to his position of Student Council President during the Big Cleanup, his resolve to be a better person makes his face look much healthier. Parodied later when, upon seeing his healthier face, one of the council members yells "President! I see you stopped wearing eyeshadow!"]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He instigated [[spoiler:the [[FrameUp Big Cleanup]] of Salt Middle School so he can vent his frustrations over being the target of his family's emotional abuse and feel better about himself. He even laughs at the suffering he caused.]]
* KnightTemplar: As Student Council President he takes great issue with the delinquents of Salt Mid.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Ritsu, increasingly disgusted with Shinji's actions, [[spoiler:leaves him to be beaten up by the very school delinquents he wrongfully framed. His face is disfigured with bruises afterwards.]]
* TheResenter: Unable to fight back against his BigBrotherBully, he projects that resentment onto the SchoolIdol, Ritsu, and sets him up to be TheScapegoat of the Big Cleanup.
* StudentCouncilPresident: His role in the school, [[spoiler:until he resigns after the Big Cleanup. DoubleSubverted as he ends up reelected anyway.]]
* TrashOfTheTitans: His bedroom, which is brimming with trash bags.
* TheUnfavorite: Is constantly treated like crap by his parents and brother for not being talented or smart, which screwed him up badly.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: To drive away all the delinquents of Salt Mid, [[spoiler:Kamuro and Ritsu frame them for perverted thefts and scandals, from which they couldn't defend themselves due to their reputation for violence. Ritsu, however, argues he's just doing it to relieve the stress he gets from his abusive family.]]

[[folder:Momozou Takenaka (Spoilers)]]
[[quoteright:150:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_ppalhszq4z1s5buyg_540.png]]

A former member of the Telepathy Club who is later revealed to be an esper. His quitting the club directly led to their disbandment.
----
* BettyAndVeronica: Is interested in Tsubomi, and his haughtiness and concern for appearances vs Mob's earnest attempts at self-improvement make him the Veronica to Mob's Betty and Tsubomi's Archie.
* {{Irony}}: The person whose resignation led to the Telepathy Club's disbandment turns out to be a telepath himself.
* JerkJock: Shows up to the Telepathy Club and mocks them for being freaks during their first real push at finding other Telepaths. In the meantime, he's joined the Tennis Club which, while not a stereotypically Jock-ish activity, is still a sports club.
* MeaningfulName / ThemeNaming: Just like the rest of the Telepathy Club boys, he is named after the characters from Momotaro. In this case, the titular character himself. It's no wonder he turned out to be the most important (ex)member of the club.
* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: Grew jaded with his telepathy due to how aware it made him of the disconnect between peoples' words and thoughts.
* MySkullRunnethOver: His telepathy originally had this drawback, and he related a story where he couldn't sleep due to all the thoughts and emotions of his neighborhood blaring in his skull during a huge soccer match. He eventually learned to block out other thoughts.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: The only real {{aversion}} among the [[NondescriptClub Telepathy Club]], as he originally joined hoping it would be a support group for telepaths like himself, only to find that no one really cared about studying psychic powers except Tome, and even she spends most of her time being swept away by the laziness of the other members.
* {{Telepathy}}: On a much stronger level than the Shiratori Brothers, being able to read and transmit thoughts among the people around him.
* WalkingSpoiler: Originally his only role in the story was starting the chain of events that led to Mob meeting the Telepathy Club and joining the Body Improvement Club. After the Divine Tree Arc, he gains a much more prominent role.

* HumanoidAbomination: Looks like a middle school student but is an immensely powerful entity who kills people in their dreams.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Traps a powerless Mob in a dream world like his other victims, only for ???% to emerge and ''obliterate'' his "Devourer" form. He actually ''leaves town'' out of fear of Mob, telling the latter he is "not normal".
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He was driven out of town, but never properly exorcised.

----
* FunnyAfro: His afro's smaller than most examples, but it's still an afro.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Does research on Esper power so he can learn how to awaken it in normal people such as himself. Ritsu noted how foolish his dream is.
* NiceGuy: His desire to be an esper notwithstanding, Kenji's really friendly and sociable. He's also really attached to the esper kids who came to the Awakening Lab to learn how to wield psychic abilities [[spoiler:and is distraught after they are kidnapped by Claw.]]

----
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Sort of. Her hair is light brown, but her eyes are a darker shade of the same color.
* PinkIsFeminine: She wears a pink track suit, and is a girl.
* PsychicPowers: [[SuperSenses ESP]] - she has an extremely great chance at knowing what to do or where to go. It's not infallible, but she's able to complete a test of picking a specific card out of 10 with 60% accuracy, which is noted to be rather impressive. [[spoiler:She later uses her ESP to help her friends and Ritsu escape captivity after they were kidnapped by Claw.]]

Takeshi Hoshino (星野武史; ''Hoshino Takeshi'') is one of the participants of the Awakening Lab, who was revealed to have psychic powers.
----
* BishieSparkle: Sometimes appears with these.
* BlatantLies: Clearly overestimated how powerful his telekinesis is, when viewers know he can only bend spoons (albeit with great difficulty).
* DelinquentHair: Sports a downwards pompadour that covers one of his eyes.
* ElvisImpersonator: His pompadour and white, high-collared outfit make him appear as one.
* HighCollarOfDoom: Subverted, as he is not evil despite his outfit having a high collar.
* PsychicPowers: [[MindOverMatter Telekinesis]], but on a much less impressive scale than that of the main characters. Under Teruki's guidance, he was able to increase his powers beyond mere spoon-bending and can lift up to 10 kilograms.
** [[spoiler:At least in the anime, he has trained to the point he is stronger than the artificial espers he was once hopelessly outclassed by. He and Gou even coordinate to whip up an impressive fire tornado. Heís still weak compared to most other espers, but heís no longer pathetically so.]]

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Has blonde hair. Also one of the more heroic characters.
* InTheHood: Wears a light blue hoodie, but it's subverted in that he never has the ''actual'' hood on.
* PlayingWithFire: What his powers are revealed to be.
* PsychicPowers: [[PlayingWithFire Pyrokinesis]], but not very well developed - though he has enough power to melt a spoon. Under Teruki's guidance, he's able to increase his powers to beyond a spark.
** [[spoiler:In the anime he was able to create a vicious looking fire tornado with the help of Takeshi, showing heís a real, if somewhat still underwhelming, pyrokinetic now.]]

Daichi and Kaito Shiratori (白鳥大地&白鳥海斗) are twin brothers. They proved instrumental in helping Mob and his friends defeat the Claw Organization via their psychic powers.
----
* TheBusCameBack: After being partly forgotten during the Second Claw Arc in favor of showing the other Awakening Lab Students, the brothers get a bit of solo screen time following the Divine Tree Arc where they finally interact with the people who'd be most interested in them: the Telepathy Club.
* HiddenEyes: Their eyes are always hidden by their glasses.
* IdenticalTwinIDTag: They would've looked exactly the same if it weren't their wearing different clothes and their physical appearances being based on two different shapes (Daichi's is a circle, while Kaito's is a square).
* PsychicPowers: TwinTelepathy. They eventually manage to train under Teruki enough to use their powers to act as a LivingLieDetector against another, much more powerful Esper, though they still can't directly read or transmit anyone's thoughts but each other's.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Their shared telepathy lets them see [[spoiler:through Claw's plans to fake their deaths and [[DespairEventHorizon drive Ritsu's group to despair]] so the kids could be brainwashed into becoming Claw soldiers]].
* {{Telepathy}}: What the twins have. At first, they just have TwinTelepathy, but thanks to Teruki they learn how to mind-read others as well. That said, they can't really send their thoughts to anyone else, as it just sounds like an annoying ringing in their ears.

* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Shou doesn't want to stop him only because of the pain of watching a loved one go off the deep end--it's also because watching your dad act like a cartoonish supervillain on national television is just plain mortifying.
* ArcVillain: Of the World Domination arc.
* ArchnemesisDad: To Shou.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Is the leader of Claw as well as its most powerful member.
* BadBoss: Sees his followers as tools for world domination, including the Super 5. [[spoiler:This leads to one Super 5 member as well as an entire sister organization defecting to Mob's side, and another Super 5 member saving the main characters to pay off a life debt owed to Mob.]]
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: He doesn't feel particularly bad about the destruction he causes whenever he wreaks havoc, as it happens on a daily basis.
* BoxedCrook: [[spoiler:The Japanese government offers to commute his sentence if he can help resolve ???%'s rampage in the finale, though he agrees for [[DeathSeeker for other reasons]].]]
* ChargedAttack: The crux of his world domination plan is unleashing a torrent of Psychic Energy he's been building up inside him for [[spoiler:''20 years''.]]
* AGodAmI: And has the power to back it up, able to grant decent psychic power to an army of 600 espers without losing any substantial amount of his own power.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Big time. He is hyped from relatively early in the series as the ultimate antagonist and greatest opponent, and while he causes unprecedented destruction and chaos during the World Domination arc, he is also soundly defeated during it. The manga is far from over at that point and there are another 2 key arcs after his defeat.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: Close, if it weren't for Mob. He experiences HeelRealization as he's about to self-destruct and expressed his wish to see his wife one last time and apologize to her, but ultimately accepts his fate and requests Mob to at least let him end it himself in order to atone. Mob says otherwise. [[spoiler:He later attempts to sacrifice himself to stop ???%, believing RedemptionEqualsDeath, but Shou successfully talks him out of it.]]
* FamilyEyeResemblance: He and his son have ice blue eyes with pinprick pupils, which distinguish them as two of the only four characters drawn with irises at all[[note]]The other two being Tsubome (in the anime) and 100% Courage Mob[[/note]]
* {{Foil}}: To Reigen. The two men are charismatic masters who guide their own groups of espers and even have a pupil with remarkable psychic potential. The difference is that Touichirou has high level psychic powers and intends to use them, and his subordinates, to achieve his dream of world domination. Reigen, on the other hand, has no psychic powers and instead encourages his students/followers not to abuse their powers as it doesn't make them any different from normal people.
* GreaterScopeVillain: The leader of Claw, who are first revealed when Mob, Teru, and Dimple launch an assault on their 7th Branch.
* HeelFaceTurn: After his HeelRealization from being saved by Mob, he turns himself in to the government despite this possibly meaning his death or torture. Although he has still have some of his bad parts, his personality has mellowed out and he is willing to fight on the side of good.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He's defined by his extremely solipsistic worldview that leads him to view everyone else, including his own son, as bit characters who exist only for him to exploit.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Averted hard. His entire MO involves embracing his esper powers and wanting to be recognized as a literal ''god'' of the universe. [[spoiler: But after being humbled by [[AllLovingHero Mob]] along with his son saving him from his suicidal mission to take down [[FinalBoss ???%]], Touichirou decides to give up his psychic powers and voices a new desire of living a normal life with his family]].
* IOweYouMyLife: His reason for stopping Mob on his rampage. The latter stopped him on his own, it's suitable that he does the same to repay his debt, although it ended up being futile.
* LackOfEmpathy: He's a solipsist who can't even recognize other people as ''people'', much less care about their feelings.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Serizawa, an unhealthy dependence which [[MoreThanMindControl Touichirou actively encourages]].
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Seeks esper superiority over the world, and at one point even [[PuttingOnTheReich performs the infamous Roman salute.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: You'd never guess from looking at him that he's almost fifty years old.
* PowerIncontinence: The more power he uses, the more he has trouble controlling his power. [[spoiler:At 100%, it threatens to make him self-destruct, which would not only kill him, but obliterate pretty much all of Spice City if Mob hadn't been there to absorb his psychic energy.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: While seemingly calm and mature on the surface, his defining characteristic is that he never grew out of his adolescent egocentrism and still holds a very childish view of how the world works.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In the anime. his eyes frequently glow red.
* ShadowArchetype: Mob claims during [[spoiler:100% Compassion]] that he sees Touichirou as what he could've grown up to be without the guidance of his mentor and friends. He also serves as one for Reigen, being a savior and mentor to a powerful but neurotic and gullible psychic whose powers they exploit. He represents what Reigen would be like if he was truly cold-hearted and didn't show regret in exploiting others for his personal gain.
* SharpDressedMan: Is never seen wearing anything else other than a suit.
* SuperpowerLottery
** BlowYouAway
** AnIcePerson
** PlayingWithFire
** ShockAndAwe
** BarrierWarrior
** GravityMaster
** {{Telekinesis}}
** SuperEmpowering
** EnergyAbsorption
* TakeOverTheWorld: He wondered if ruling the world was possible given his exceptional telekinetic abilities, and thus embarked on a mission to do so.
* UnusualEyebrows: Each one is serrated with three large "fins." An omake shows Shou worried about inheriting them.
* VillainousBreakdown: As Mob forces him to [[spoiler:use more and more of his power, he starts becoming more unstable due to the stress it puts on his body and mind. Just before he explodes, his last thoughts are wanting to see the wife he drove away with his psychic power, but wanting Mob to kill him before his power destroys Spice City.]]
* VillainsOutShopping: An omake shows that he delayed his plan to take over the world when he heard ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' was premiering.
-->'''Touichirou:''' ... World domination can wait.
* WorldsStrongestMan: He is indeed the strongest esper alive, and his output far exceeds that of Mob due to years of experience. Although, things change when he faces a SuperPowerMeltdown and Mob saves him at the last moment.
* WouldHurtAChild: One of Claw's prime objectives, which he instilled, is to kidnap as many youth with psychic potential and brainwash them to support his cause. That and [[spoiler: he shows no regret over physically harming his own son when Shou betrays him]].

Son of Touichirou Suzuki, and is considered a high-ranking member of Claw due to this.
----
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:Attempted to use one to bring Mob into the fight against his father. By staging Ritsu's and his parents' deaths, he was banking on getting Mob angry enough to attack Claw. However, while Dimple reassured Mob that the bodies of his family were fake, he still fought against Claw.]]
* ChargedAttack: His Charge Bomb ability allows him to store Psychic Energy over extended periods of time before unleashing it in one huge burst. The one he uses against [[spoiler:his father]] was the result of 3 months worth of charge-up.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: His least favorite food is citrus.
* EnigmaticMinion: He's quite cryptic about his intentions when introduced in the 7th Division Arc, hinting that he still has plans to forcibly "recruit" Ritsu for Claw, yet freely letting the heroes go after dissolving what was left of Scar. [[spoiler:It turns out he was scouting Ritsu as a prospective recruit to fight ''against'' Claw.]]
* FamilyEyeResemblance: Shares his father's ice blue eyes with pinprick pupils.
* {{Foil}}: To Ritsu, growing up as TheResenter to a much more powerful psychic in his life. In an interesting twist, Shou himself recognizes this [[spoiler:and approaches Ritsu to work together instead of Teru or Mob, because they have more in common.]]
* HotBlooded: Usually brimming with energy. His character profile lists what he's bad at as "Being Calm."
* OverlordJr: Is introduced as one, disposing of [[spoiler:Ishiguro]] on his father's behalf before mocking Mob for his passivity. [[spoiler:This turns out not to be the case, as not only has he been planning to take his father down for a good while, but he's never even attended a meeting (and ran from home when his dad started getting on his case about it).]]
* {{Invisibility}}: Can use his psychic powers to bend light waves around himself, rendering him invisible.
* KidHero: 13 years old, same as Ritsu.
* MissingMom: His mother was driven away from the family by his father's increasing obsession with power. [[spoiler:It's then subverted when Touichirou apologizes to Shou for driving his mother away, only for Shou to reveal out that his mom only left ''Touichirou''--Shou himself always kept in contact with her]].
* PsychicPowers: Seems to be around the same level as Teru in terms of his Esper abilities in that he's stronger than most Claw members but still a step below the extremely powerful Espers.
* ReverseMole: [[spoiler:Only works in Claw to find people willing to take down his father.]]
* SaveTheVillain: [[spoiler: He helps out his father when he decides to take on ???% in Chapter 100]].
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His favorite food is pork curry (spicy).
* YouHaveFailedMe: He personally disposes of [[spoiler: Ishiguro for allowing his sector to be compromised and for throwing a SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum when he loses]].

[[folder:General Tropes]]
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/super5.png]]

The upper echelon of Claw who work directly under [[BigBad President Suzuki]]. They are regarded as Suzuki's most trusted enforcers and fight alongside him during the World Domination Arc.
----
* EliteMooks: {{Zigzagged}}. Suzuki recognized them as being more powerful than the common esper and chose them to be part of his inner circle. But while most of the enforcers (Shibata, Minegishi and Shimazaki) provide a difficult battle for the heroes, the other enforcers (Hatori and Serizawa) are defeated much more quickly.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: After the World Domination Arc, Serizawa takes a job at the Spirits and Such Consultation Office while Minegishi works as a florist. And even before that, they would use their powers to save Reigen and Shou from the president's wrath]].
* PetTheDog: It's implied that Minegishi and Shimazaki have a soft spot for Serizawa. Particularly showing concern whenever the bear incurs Suzuki's bad side.
* PsychopathicManChild: Much like the Scar bosses, most of them have become so dependent on their psychic powers that they believe themselves to be superior over humans and weaker espers. [[spoiler: Although three of the five do make an effort to live life as responsible adults after the defeat of their president]].
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: A strongman who relies on psychic steroids, a tech nerd, a florist, a blind {{Ikemen}}, and a former {{Hikikomori}}.
* WouldHurtAChild: They all have no issues with hurting Mob and his middle school friends.

----
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: [[spoiler: After Claw's dismantling, Hatori found work in a computer support store]].
* NerdGlasses: Wears thick glasses that always seem a little glazed over.
* OutsideContextMagic: Even he's not sure how his Electronic Control actually works.
* SquishyWizard: He relies on electronic devices such as drones to do his combat for him. [[spoiler:A simple suplex was able to knock him out in a single blow.]]
* SupportPartyMember: He is by far the least combat-worthy member of the Super 5, with only a group of underwhelming drones to protect himself, but in a modern world ruled by technology, he can single-handedly shut down most of the {{Muggles}}' best weapons.
* {{Technopath}}: His Electronic Control allows him to effortlessly manipulate any electronic device.
* {{Troll}}: According to the omakes, he relieves stress by going all out on internet message boards.

A member of the Claw's Super 5. His specialty is Psycho-Steroids, which increase his muscle mass.
----
* TheBrute: Big, strong, none too smart, and on the evil side.
* DumbMuscle: Physically the strongest Esper in Claw, powerful enough to qualify for the Super 5, but none too smart.
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: [[spoiler: Subverted. He's applied for more than 20 jobs but has been denied from each one since the only work experience he can provide is working for the Super 5]].
* TheJuggernaut: Natch. Once he gets going, he moves in on his target as inexorably as Death itself and plows through absolutely anything and anyone in the way.
* LargeAndInCharge: The tallest character in the series, and a member of the Claw's Super 5.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Turns out that Psycho-Steroids are a cheap method of attaining super strength, as Dimple bringing out the potential in the Body Improvement Club's president, who earned his muscles the hard way, is capable of defeating him.
* TemporaryBulkChange: His Psycho-Steroids ability allows him to control his muscle mass with his mind.
* UnstoppableRage: Once he activates his Psycho-Steroids, even Yuusuke's knockout spray completely fails to work against him. For reference, this same spray had previously knocked '''100% Animosity Mob''' out cold.

[[folder:Shimazaki Ryo]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NoriakiSugiyama (Japanese)
[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shimazaki.png]]

A member of the Claw's Super 5, and one of the few Espers known to be able to use two techniques simultaneously. His specialties include Teleportation, Movement Prediction, and reading the auras of other Espers.
----
* AuraVision: His Mind's Eye technique lets him see the auras of other espers - but it makes him blind to non-espers, leaving him open to attacks from someone with no powers [[spoiler:like Reigen.]]
* BarrierWarrior: Can manipulate his own Psychic Membrane of his own accord.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: While using Mind's Eye.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: His eyes are shown to be nothing more than black masses of scribbles on the rare occasion that he opens them.
* BlindSeer: While physically blind, his extrasensory perception is keen enough to border on precognition. He can further focus this to instantly identify and attack [[PressurePoint vulnerable nerve clusters]] in his opponents.
* CherryTapping: Defeats several powerful espers, including ex-Claw members. And when he detects that Mob is approaching him, he immediately concedes defeat after getting dealt another surprise attack [[spoiler:by Reigen utilizing a "Self Defense Rush". He concludes Reigen must be so powerful that he can hide his esper aura]]. He then runs away after Mob angrily asks him how destroying part of the city, and hurting many innocent people along with his friends could be a case of ForTheEvulz and ItAmusedMe.
* DisabilitySuperpower: His super senses seem to be particularly heightened due to the fact that he's blind.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Apparently because he's blind. Opens them when he uses his Mind's Eye technique.
* FailedASpotCheck: He has to dedicate at least ''some'' attention to his surroundings if he wants to predict movements, which means centering his attention on one thing or forcing him to deal with too many variables at once can cause him to slip up. Thus, [[spoiler:both his decision to concentrate on espers and the sheer power of Mob's aura leave everything else so BeneathNotice that Reigen can just casually walk up to him and beat him senseless]].
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: His Mind's Eye technique reveals black sclera with glowing pinprick pupils.
* GodzillaThreshold: Arguably the strongest and most dangerous member of the Super 5 as he's capable of taking on [[spoiler: the combined efforts of Reigen's Esper team.]] And even then, [[spoiler: he only decides to quit after being taken by surprise by Reigen's "Self Defense Rush" and sensing Mob's intense power levels]].
* HeyYouHaymaker: He's extremely fond of these, as teleportation grants him many opportunities.
* NotQuiteFlight: While he ''can'' levitate, his preferred method of aerial travel is to teleport to whatever spot in the air he wishes to be in that particular second and keep 'jumping' to cheat inertia.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: He wears all black, has a red shirt, and is helping Suzuki with his world domination schemes.
* SharpDressedMan: He's dressed quite handsomely.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Once cornered by Reigen's team, he comes to the conclusion that fighting an "esper able to conceal his aura" [[spoiler:really just Reigen sneaking up while he's focused on the others]], as well as sensing Mob's power being far above his own, is a losing battle and surrenders. Once he realizes how angry Mob is at the idea of him destroying cities for fun, he shows genuine terror and teleports out of the battlefield post-haste.
* SmugSnake: Claims superiority over how he's able to predict the movements of others, [[spoiler:but his own movements are super predictable as well, and once he's distracted, he goes down hard.]]
* SuperPowerLottery: Has an exceptional number of specialties compared to most psychics.
* SuperSenses: Can predict his enemies' movements this way.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Unlike the other enforcers, Shimazaki's whereabouts after the World Domination Arc are a total mystery. The only clue we get in the omakes is him in a panel wearing a labcoat]].

----
* AmbiguousGenderIdentity: Implied to be nonbinary.
* TheCameo: They appear in Chapter 99 to [[spoiler: give Mob a free bouquet of flowers as a gift for Tsubomi]].
* GreenThumb: Their bread and butter. Ironically, they don't even really like plants.
* IOweYouMyLife: [[spoiler: Saves Mob and his company after Mob saves their life.]]
* {{Irony}}: A [[GreenThumb psychic plant user]] who hates plants.
* SmugSnake: Cocky and condescending towards enemies of Claw [[spoiler:at first.]]
* VillainousFriendship: They do care about the other members of the Super 5, and are disgusted by how casually Touichirou regards them as lackeys.

A member of the Claw's Super 5. He's a powerful Psychokinetic, capable of channelling his power through his umbrella, and is singled out by Touichirou as the strongest of the Super 5.
----
* ApologeticAttacker: His fight with Mob has him apologizing a few times whenever he hits him.
* BerserkerTears: He starts to tear up when Mob tells him that he's being used by Claw. Serizawa then panics over what he would do with his life if he didn't have Claw anymore.
* BigDamnHeroes: He manages to rescue [[spoiler: Reigen just ''seconds'' before Suzuki incinerates him]].
* {{Claustrophobia}}: {{Inverted}}. Having lived his whole life in isolation like a Franchise/DisneyPrincess, Serizawa is comfortable in closed spaces but feels distressed whenever he goes outdoors. [[spoiler: He gets better after taking a job at Spirits and Such]].
* TheDragon: The only member of the Super 5 to closely fill this role as he's the last member fought before Mob confronts Suzuki.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Eventually takes a job at Spirits and Such.]]
* {{Hikikomori}}: Feared his own powers, and isolated himself from the world for 15 years as a result before being discovered by the Claw.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: His reason for joining Claw was because he finally found people who had powers just like him and weren't afraid of him. [[spoiler: This gives Mob an opportunity to reach out to him to show that they're NotSoDifferent. Once they talk things out, Serizawa pulls an official HeelFaceTurn and becomes friends with the heroes]].
* ImportantHaircut: [[spoiler:Reigen gives him a much cleaner cut and shaves off his stubble upon getting his job at Spirits and Such.]]
* MessyHair: A short, ratty looking mess of curly hair. [[spoiler:Reigen's first order of business upon hiring him is giving him a much cleaner haircut.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Hero pulling it on antagonist example. Mob realizes that he was in a similar situation to Serizawa's and helps him realize that.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Because of his isolation and Touichirou's manipulation, Serizawa's convinced that he's working a perfectly legitimate job as the bodyguard of a law-abiding CEO rather than serving TheDragon in a terrorist organization.
* ParasolOfPain: His parasol is infused with incredible psychic powers, allowing him to use it as a strong shield and weapon.
* PermaStubble: Prior to his ImportantHaircut above. During his time in isolation, it was a full-on BeardOfSorrow.
* SecurityBlanket: His Umbrella, which he takes with him everywhere as an extension of his room from his days as a hikikomori. When Mob and Dimple try to take it away from him, it causes his powers to go haywire, not unlike 100%/???% Mob.
* ShadowArchetype: To Mob, where they both fear their own powers, and are both gullible enough to have been used by others for their own ends, the main difference being that the people who used Mob eventually came to genuinely care about him. [[spoiler:By Chapter 101, working at Spirits & Such is even shown to have given them similar character development, with both of them becoming comfortable enough in their skin that Mob is Vice President of the Body Improvement Club, while Tome describes Serizawa as the real backbone of Spirits & Such.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: For the Super 5, where he's a decent guy being used by Touichirou.

!!Scar
[[folder:General Tropes]]
[[quoteright:500:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_94.png]]

A sub-group within Claw, comprised of people who have at some point defied Touichirou, and are branded as a scar as a warning against further betrayal.
----
* {{Chuunibyou}}: The unifying characteristic of members of Scar (and Claw in general) is that its members never grew out of their middle-school delusions of grandeur and thus do not understand how utterly ridiculous their Legion of Doom schtick and obsession with PowerLevels are.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: All Scar members have had a scar given to them by Touichirou. [[spoiler:Koyama and Sakurai don't have them anymore after Touichiro's defeat, so it can be presumed that those on all the other members were healed as well.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Many of its members sided with Reigen's group later on.]]
* ManChild: Reigen surmises that the underlying characteristic of ''all'' the members is that they are a bunch of kids who never grew up. He correctly surmises that their attempts to invoke RuleOfCool, like Ishiguro's gas mask and Muraki's ShouldersOfDoom, are due to that.
* PsychopathicManchild: They're also trying to take over the world, no matter the cost to others.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: An aspect which they heavily play up thanks to their arrested development.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Being essentially grown-up children who relied entirely on their powers, a normal punch is enough to wind them when they're distracted. [[spoiler:Similarly, scolding them like children is enough to get them to back down.]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler:They aren't disposed of immediately, but upon becoming Scar are considered 100% Expendable.]]

[[caption-width-right:350:[[labelnote:Click here to see Ishiguro without his mask on.]]https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_75.png[[/labelnote]]]]

Representative of the 7th Branch of Claw, and overseer of the Scar group for that branch. His special power is the manipulation of gravity, to the extent of creating mini-black holes.
----
* AdaptationExpansion: In the live action version, [[spoiler:he's a friendly takoyaki stand operator who acts as sort of [[TheConfidant confidant]] for Mob, using his power to hide his extensive facial scars.]]
* ArcVillain: Serves as the main threat of the 7th Division Arc.
* TheConfidant: [[spoiler:In the live action version, he is there to lend an ear to Mob during most episodes.]]
* CoveredInScars: Under his mask. [[spoiler:In the live action version, he hides his scars with his powers until he is drained completely by Dimple.]]
* EvilOldFolks: Revealed as this when Reigen tears his mask off during 100% Gratitude.
* GasMaskLongcoat: Wears a long cloak and a Gas Mask at all times, complete with voice changer, to the extent that, like [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 the Pyro]], no one knows what he looks like, or if he's even a "he" at all. [[spoiler:He is a he, and an extremely old one at that.]]
* GodhoodSeeker: Works with Claw to create a world where Espers will be worshiped as Gods.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: [[spoiler:His entire head is ''covered in them'' under his mask.]]
* GravityIsPurple: Especially in the live action version, his powers have a distinctive purple-and-black color scheme.
* GravityMaster: His psychic specialty involves manipulating gravity, and his special attack, "Black Sphere," essentially creates tiny black holes to use as weapons, he can also increase the weight of his own body to use as a weapon.
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Sees normal humans as little better than monkeys, and views Espers as inherently superior.
* PsychopathicManChild: When he gives a rant, sans mask, his art shifts meaningfully to the point that he looks like an infant... which is fitting, since, without his mask or a voice changer, his rant about his motives (Basically, he wanted everyone to pay attention to him and praise him for how great he was) is so childish as to be infantile.
* SamusIsAGirl: Other members of Scar note that that nobody has seen his face or heard their voice unaltered, so his actual gender is up in the air as well. [[spoiler:When he's finally unmasked, the first reaction people have is shock that he ''isn't'' a woman in disguise.]]
* SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum: [[spoiler: He refuses to accept Reigen's words of wisdom and decides to use his power to destroy the entire 7th Branch. Fortunately, [[ReverseMole Shou]] was having none of it]].
* VocalDissonance: Uses a Voice Changer which makes him sound childish in the original or a teenage girl in the English Dub.

!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ShinichiroMiki (Japanese), Creator/KeithSilverstein (English)
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_157.png]]

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. His special power is Psychic Spiral, which grants his fists power like a drill of psychic energy, allowing them to pierce psychic barriers.
----
* ArmorPiercingAttack: He specializes in shattering telekinetic barriers using his Psychic Spiral punches.
* CombatPragmatist: He will do anything to win a battle. Opponent too powerful? [[InTheBack Cheap shot them while they're distracted]]. And if that doesn't work... knockout gas to the face.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Not him, but the delinquents that had been wanting to fight 'White T Poison' were horrified by the [[NoHoldsBarredBeatDown brutal beatdown]] he delivers on Mob and were worried he would beat Mob to death.
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: [[spoiler: In Chapter 100, he works in a grocery store alongside Sakurai]].
* FullContactMagic: While many Espers utilize the trope Koyama is one of the more stand out examples on account of him being a brawler who's psychic powers enhance his attacks.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A large, diagonal scar across the bridge of his nose. Like all Scar members, it was received by betraying the larger organization.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Eventually chooses to join Reigen's group to fight against Scar.]]
* IronicName: His first name, "Megumu," means "Kindness."
* KnightOfCerebus: While prior arcs could get dark at times, they were still overall humorous or at the very least interspersed with gags. While he eased up later, Koyama's first appearance, meanwhile, was downright brutal.
* LogicalWeakness: Being a melee-oriented Esper, Koyama may be able to punch through barriers and projectiles, but he lacks a strong answer to ranged telekinesis. The second time Mob faces him, he simply [[MindOverMatter grabs him with telekinesis]] and thrashes him without even needing to resort to his 100% power.
* NoBrows: Completely lacks eyebrows.
* OhCrap: The first notable fight to overcome Mob, not through sheer physical power but by simply using knockout gas that the psychic barrier wasn't expecting to try to stop. Then Mob gets back up in his unconscious state, and Koyama ''feels it'' with so much terror that he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere grabs Ritsu and makes a break for it rather than continue fighting.]]
* ThisIsADrill: His Psychic Spiral acts as such, enhancing the force of his punches and allowing him to break through psychic barriers.
* VillainDecay: The first time he faces Mob, he beats him to near-death, forcing Mob into 100% Animosity, and then manages to counter even that, only leaving when Mob's [[SuperpoweredEvilSide ???% Mode]] is engaged. The second time, Mob just trashes him telekinetically with little effort. Justified since this time, Mob was fully aware of what the guy is capable of, knew exactly how to counter him (avoid melee at all costs), and had no intention of going easy on him either.
* WouldHurtAChild: While all of Scar, and Claw, specifically target Espers of around Middle-School Age, Koyama's introduction involves him specifically having no problem brutalizing Ritsu, Mob, and a larger group of delinquents.

* PowerNullifier: One of his curses was placed on a room in the Scar HQ that allowed it to act like this.
* ThePowerOfHate: Sakurai was able to unlock his power by cursing the world and hating everyone for making him suffer.

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. His special power is Air Whip, which allows him to psychically condense air into whips that stretch out from his hands.

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. His special power is Hypnotic Illusions.
----
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A vertical one that bisects his chin.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He uses his power to traumatize Mob, who goes 100% as a result and instinctively amplifies and redirects Mutou's illusion back against him. We don't see what he sees, but it gives him a violent seizure and knocks him out cold.
* MasterOfIllusion: His favorite kind seems to be bloody corpses, specifically of friends and family in order to catch his opponents off guard.
* MindRape: He manages to inflict Mob with this after taking advantage of Mob's grieving over an apparently dead Ritsu. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Unfortunately, this also triggers Mob's 100% which redirects Mutou's attack back at him, knocking him out]].
* VillainousCheekbones: Not as prominent as Miyagawa's, as they result mostly from his chin.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: After getting a taste of his own medicine, there's not confirmation on what became of him after his arc debut]].

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. His specialty is powerful Pyrokinesis.
----
* AnimeHair: A spiky hairstyle resembling that of a [[Anime/DragonBallZ Super Saiyan]]. The anime even shows it being Blonde.
* FemmeFatalons: One of the rare male examples - he has long and sharp fingernails coated in dark nail polish.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A small scar on his right eyebrow.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Teru envelops him in a psychic barrier, causing him to fry himself with his own flames.
* LeanAndMean: He's incredibly lanky, and one of the most vicious members of Scar.
* MortonsFork: He continuously produces such massive amounts of flames that other psychics cannot find a window to attack. However, while his fire can be repelled by a psychic barrier, the heat from it cannot, so sooner or later his foes end up dying, whether it's by burning to a crisp trying to attack or by cooking to death in their own barrier trying to defend themselves. Teru manages to TakeAThirdOption: using his barrier '''as''' a means of attack, turning Miyagawa's flames on himself.
* PlayingWithFire: A powerful pyrokinetic. That he's still alive after Teru tricks him into immolating himself shows that Pyrokinetics are somewhat flame-retardant in this universe.
* SmugSuper: His pyrokinesis is impressive, but his cocky attitude was his downfall.
* VillainousCheekbones: Has a very gaunt face.

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. Her specialty is Hardened Aura, which allows her to harden her muscles to fight.
----
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: In the anime, her relationship with Mukai is much closer than in the manga. In the manga, her reason for fighting Mob was for a good fight where the anime makes it more about revenge for destroying Mukai's puppets.
* BareFistedMonk: Fights entirely with her fists, and works out extensively.
* BoobsOfSteel: Her bust is played up in the anime, and she's one of the most physically capable members of Scar.
* CloseRangeCombatant: She notes that if Mob is able to get a good telekinetic attack out, it puts her at a disadvantage.
* CoolBigSis: Seems to be one to Mukai, as she's shown hanging out in Tsuchiya's workout room, and Tsuchiya seems to be driven to fight particularly hard against Mob due to the fact that he made Mukai cry.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A scar along her right cheek.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Inverted - while most of the men of Scar have fancy psychic attacks like illusions, pyrokinesis, and astral clones, Tsuchiya relies on her fists and her hardened aura to fight.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Eventually chooses to join Reigen's group to fight against Claw.]]
* LightningBruiser: Her hardened aura plus her physical training means she hits hard enough with her bare fists to draw blood from Mob, and the anime shows her using hit-and-run tactics at an extremely fast pace.
* PetTheDog: When she realizes Mob is crying during her beat-down and learns that he doesn't want to hurt a lady, she pauses to encourage him and tell him that it's alright to fight a woman. [[CurbStompBattle This backfires slightly on her]].
* SuperStrength: Her Hardened Aura grants her this.

* DudeLooksLikeALady: His longer hair and prominent lips make him look fairly feminine, and he uses a feminine speech pattern in the original Japanese.
* FluffyTamer: Makes monstrous spirits his loyal pets and gives them saccarine pet names while he's at it.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Tends to name his spirits cute things like "Cookie-chan" or "Pudding-chan."
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A vertical scar that goes across his right eye.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Tries to make an honest living as a Psychic after Scar is taken down, and works with Mob and Reigen on several occasions afterwards.]]
* OlympusMons: [[spoiler:Captures Mogami and quickly dubs him "Pudding-chan", though he never manages to successfully tame him.]]

----
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: She wasn't as close to Tsuchiya in the manga and didn't witness her loss to Mob. In the anime not only did she see it but she is last seen in the arc crying on the defeated Tsuchiya's shoulder.
* AnimeHair: Four braids that stick out at straight angles from her head, with a bun in the back, which gives it a similar appearance to a puppet

A man who got scared by a roach and died from hitting his head on a ceiling. He became a ghost who haunts people's nightmares.
----
* EekAMouse: Got so scared by a cockroach that he hit the ceiling and died.
* NoSell: Absolutely immune to Reigen's vicious Splash Salt secret technique. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as Reigen used regular old table salt instead of special purified salt designed for exorcisms.
* StarterVillain: The first villain/evil spirit to be introduced in the series.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Is extremely incredulous that a middle-schooler like Mob would try to exorcise him. He regretted it pretty quickly.

* BananaPeel: The cause of his [[TotalPartyKill entire gang's deaths.]]
* DiscOneFinalBoss: In the anime. He's the boss of the biker ghosts in Bone Well, but he's taking orders from a larger, much more dangerous spirit who's lived in the tunnel for ages.
* PlayingWithFire: Has pyrokinetic attacks, symbolized with the motorcycle engine on his back.

[[caption-width-right:350:"Are you thirsty?"]]
-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/YuuKobayashi (Japanese)

An entity born from collective belief in the urban legend of the same name, she manifests as a woman with a mouth sliced open along her whole jaw, who asks her victims if she's pretty before slicing them up with her scissors.

In the anime, she is changed to a woman who walks around, dragging several broken dolls on a string. Upon encountering someone, she asks them if they're thirsty before drowning them in the swamp. Her origin, however, remains the same.
----
* AbsurdlySharpClaws: In the anime, since she is changed to a different urban legend, she has no scissors but has extremely long, deadly sharp claws instead.
* AdaptationDeviation: She is changed to a completely different character in the anime, though her function (an entity born of collective belief, which can only be exorcised by someone who has no fear in her) remains the same.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: In the anime, the Dragger is able to shatter the dolls she drags around to enhance one of her arms and form a razor-sharp blade.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: The collective belief in her urban legend gave form to her.
* CreepyDoll: In the anime, she drags several large, partially shattered dolls on a string behind her.
* EmotionEater: Because she is born from the belief of others, she adopts the characteristics attributed to her. Thus, being afraid of her makes her become more and more deserving of that fear, and thus more powerful. Anyone who sees her as an unstoppable threat cannot destroy her by any means, but Mob - who feels no fear in her presence - is able to obliterate her with little effort.
* OneWingedAngel: In the anime, she fuses with the entire swampland she haunts as her final stand, turning into a massive, monstrous water and mud elemental.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Subverted. She is not a ghost or any sort of traditional evil spirit, but instead more of a collective {{tulpa}}.
* ShearMenace: In the manga, in keeping with the overall myth of the Kuchisake-Onna.
* SlasherSmile: Like the original myth.
* StringyHairedGhostGirl: Appears as traditional onryō with either a mutilated (manga) or rotting (anime) face.
* {{Tulpa}}: She is effectively an unwillingly and collectively created thoughtform.
* {{Youkai}}: In the manga, she's inspired by the real-life myth of the Kuchisake-Onna. In the anime, her origins are different and she doesn't seem to be based on any particular youkai.
* YourMindMakesItReal: She was born by the belief in her, and fearing her makes her even stronger. Mob being unaware of her legend allows him to exorcise her without incident.

[[folder:Odor Sniffer]]
An evil spirit born of a ghost who was socially awkward around girls in life. Haunts an All-Girls School.
----
* NotSoDifferent: Feels this way about Mob, saying that they're both the "Supporting Cast of Youth."
* ThePeepingTom: His modus operandi.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Uses his techniques as an evil spirit to peep on girls in the bathroom and steal their personal items. He only reveals himself truly when Mob traps him in the school's gymnasium.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He's basically a [[MonsterOfTheWeek spirit of the week]], but his regrets of not living his youth to the fullest is what motivate Mob to join the Body Improvement Club over the Telepathy Club.

[[folder:Keiji Mogami (Spoilers)]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkiraIshida (Japanese), Creator/SeanChiplock (English)
[[quoteright:320:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mogami.png]]

A historically famous and extremely powerful Esper who became the strongest evil spirit upon committing suicide. He is encountered possessing a rich girl named Minori Asagiri.
----
* AffablyEvil: Very soft-spoken and calm. He's genuinely like this and at most expresses mild surprise when something unexpected happens. Even in the face of utter defeat he simply delivers an analytical comment about it and escapes.
* AmbiguousSituation: It's not entirely clear what happens to him after he gets free in the World Domination Arc. However, he is most likely lurking out there somewhere considering that an Evil Spirit has to be at peace to pass on, something he certainly wasn't.
* ArcVillain: Of the aptly named Mogami Arc. Notable for having the longest personal screentime of any individual villain, even more than Suzuki, since The World Domination arc attention is diluted between the massive amount of characters present on it.
* AssassinOutclassin: After he stopped working as a hitman, he mentions many were sent to kill him. Keiji doesn't really expand on this... but he is shown walking away from a mountain of corpses.
* TheCorrupter: Comes one step away from mentally breaking Mob by throwing him into an utterly hopeless world in an attempt to make him adopt his world view. He ultimately fails but only because of Dimple's intervention.
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: Constantly has these. He likes the look enough to actually manifest his spirit form with them.
* {{Curse}}: While he was alive laying these was his SignatureMove as an esper.
* DefiantCaptive: [[spoiler: Despite being captured by Matsuo, he proves to be his most difficult and untamed spirit among his collection]].
* DemonicPossession: Possesses a young rich girl in his first appearance. Attempts to pull this on Mob's vacant body when he uses the out of body technique, but Dimple fortunately takes the body first and protects it.
* DissonantSerenity: He views people who pick on others as a plague on society and casually claims their lives have no worth when corrupting Mob.
* DreamLand: Capable of creating one inside the person he is possessing. He can shape it to his will and alter its fundamental rules, but his control over it wavers if the victims inside are strong enough to resist the MindRape
* EarlyBirdCameo: Only in the anime - he can be seen on the left side of the screen alongside multiple other psychics in the opening narration of the first episode.
* EldritchAbomination: Powerful enough to qualify as this, and Dimple openly refers to him as the strongest evil spirit.
* EmbarrassingNickname: [[spoiler:Like all spirits Matsuo captures, Mogami gets a sugary pet name--Pudding-chan.]]
* EnergyAbsorption: In life, he absorbed the power of Evil Spirits so that he'd become an exceptionally powerful one in death. When he's re-released during Claw's attempted coup, he decides to drain the energy from Claw's esper army as well. Mob later copies this style of ability during the final showdown with Claw's Boss.
* FamedInStory: One of the world's most known psychics by virtue of being the first one to actually show the world the supernatural occurrences, psychic powers and paranormal events on television back when he was a teenager, and remaining as a TV celebrity until much later. He's equally famed in the spirit community for being the strongest and most dangerous evil spirit.
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: He likes to use the appearance he had as a 24-year-old, which he describes as his peak in human life. Somewhat unique in this since almost all evil spirits use outright monstrous forms or at least humanesque abominations, but Mogami likes his actual human visage and only starts to drop it when he is forced to use larger amounts of power.
* FreudianExcuse: When it became clear that people cared more about using his powers than they did helping him as a person, especially when his mother was dying of illness, he started becoming bitter towards all of humanity. His time spent as a hitman and the reveal that his mother's illness was a result of his powers drawing evil spirits towards her lead him to snap completely, and declare that powers like his and Mob's should only be used for their own gain.
* GreenThumb: Can possess plants to create large vine-like monsters.
* HumanoidAbomination: As an esper, he ate Evil Spirits for breakfast - in a much more literal sense than Mob.
* KnightOfCerebus: The biggest of the ''entire'' series, massively outclassing Koyama or any other villain in this regard. His arc is by far the darkest in the series.
* InstantDeathRadius: His life drains ability allows him to kill people around him. Even low-class espers get instantly killed by this. He comments that they are a nice meal.
* LotusEaterMachine: Creates one inside of Minori's body when Mob invades with the idea of turning him into a sympathizer of his twisted ideals.
* MindRape: He basically inflicts this upon Mob for a whopping six months. He comes ''dangerously'' close to breaking him and only fails due to Dimple's intervention.
* NightmareFace: Produces a pretty horrifying one when itís first discovered that Minori is in fact possessed. Notable for simply projecting the horror as a shadow behind her rather than wearing it himself. In the mind world, as he becomes damaged and forced to use more of his power his appearance deteriorates over time, giving a more monstrous look.
* ThePowerOfHate: He believes that the most troubled a person is and the more negative emotions they harbor the stronger the evil spirit they will produce upon death (if any). ''He's right'' and outright uses it as a part of his ThanatosGambit.
* ProfessionalKiller: Became one in an attempt to pay his mother's medical bills.
* PsychicPowers: He was an esper in life. Notable because he ''lacked'' the [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] that is signature to espers in the series. He still had the classic energy barrier and the ability to see and exorcise spirits though. His own "unique" power was to lay curses on others. These could even be lethal, which later allowed him to become a hitman. As a spirit, he manages to grasp telekinesis, but of a slightly different type than that of an actual esper.
* SatanicArchetype: Once among the most famous and powerful Espers, he eventually fell from grace and ended up becoming the most powerful evil spirit in existence. He is also in command of his own legion of the damned, composed of the thousands of evil spirits he absorbed. While inside Minori's body, Mogami tries to corrupt Mob into a self-centered Esper like himself or the Claw members.
* SealedEvilInACan: Eventually captured and named [[FluffyTheTerrible "Pudding-Chan"]] by Matsuo. He gets out much later during The World Domination Arc.
* SecondPersonNarration: He serves as this to Mobís first-person while he traps him in the Mind World. Itís almost pure nightmare fuel.
* SignatureMove: The ability to lay curses was this for him while alive. As an evil spirit, he prefers a combination of MindRape and EnergyAbsorption.
* SoLastSeason: {{Averted}}. His brief appearance on the World Domination Arc shows that he is still as absolutely terrifying as last time. He effortlessly kills a large esper squadron and barely bats an eye as he overpowers a member of the Super 5... each of whom were more or less as strong as ''Teru.''
* ThanatosGambit: Step 1: Consume the essence of evil spirits. Step 2: Commit suicide. Step 3: Become an evil spirit too powerful to be exorcised.
* VillainHasAPoint: Downplayed. He is not entirely wrong in saying that the world is fundamentally unfair, nor is he wrong in his assessment that, under different circumstances, Mob's life certainly '''could''' have gone down a much darker path. But ultimately, he's just horrifically petty and selfish - far from actually helping Mob like he claims to, all he's doing is artificially making Mob's life terrible just so he can gain a powerful follower.
** In his second appearance, he tells Mob that sometimes it's important to be hard on people when kindness won't change them. Mob would use this lesson when fighting against [[GreaterScopeVillain Touichirou]].
* VillainRespect: In his second appearance, he spares Minegishi's life thanks to Mob vouching how it's important to have faith in people and their ability to change.
* WakeUpCallBoss: The first opponent against whom Mob uses a completely positive 100%... as well as being the only one to actually ''overpower'' said 100%. Starting with him, major villains are now dramatically harder to defeat, always requiring more than simply going 100% and blasting said opponent to hell, basically because ''it's no longer enough.''
* WeirdnessMagnet: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] - it was this exact quality of his that caused his mother to become sick, with her becoming an evil spirit and yelling at him about this after she died.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After he's released again during the World Domination Arc, he disappears with his fate being left unknown.
* WorldsStrongestMan: He's consistently referred as the strongest evil spirit and has the feats to live up to it.
* {{Yakuza}}: In order to raise money, he acted as a mob hitman.
* YearInsideHourOutside: When he trapped Mob inside the illusion world created by him, Mob experiences 6 months worth of school mockery while Reigen and Dimple have been watching him for 30 minutes.

[[folder:Lord Psycho Helmet (Spoilers)]]
Originally a disguise taken by Dimple based off of a sketch made of Mob, Lord Psycho Helmet is, in reality, a sentience that had been developing inside the Divine Tree since the beginning of its existence, and was unleashed after Dimple relinquished control over its power.
----
* GreenThumb: It can create roots and copies of itself made from the broccoli it was born from.
* HorrorHunger: Refers to Mob as nutrients in his first true appearance, and subsequently eats Dimple.
* HumanoidAbomination: It's an unnerving facsimile of Mob made out of broccoli roots.

->''Even though I can't exorcise a flasher, I can still bring you to justice!''

A psychic from a nearby city who is competing for the title of "rising star of the paranormal world" with Reigen. While initially antagonistic, the two become friends after being forced to work together on an assignment.
----
* {{Acrofatic}}: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]. While he is more athletic than his size indicates, his stamina isn't very high. Even when he's possessed by Dimple, he still wasn't in good shape.
* TheCameo: He appears in the ''Reigen'' manga spin-off where he gives Tome's high school teacher an amulet to protect him from a spirit.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: While still no Esper, he actually is more of a psychic than Reigen thanks to his blessed necklaces, which can entangle evil spirits. Taken even further when Dimple uses him as a host, giving him true Esper powers for the duration of the possession.
* HeelFaceTurn: Happens almost ''instantly''. He goes from minor "antagonist" (word used lightly here) out to steal Reigen's assignment to a friendly rival of Reigen after Mob saves both of them from a Yokai.
* HiddenDepths: When he was in high school, he was part of the sumo wrestling team but later joined the table top tennis club.
* IconicItem: His over-sized beaded necklace.
* NotSoPhonyPsychic: While Reigen initially assumes he's as much of a fraud as himself, it turns out he does have some ability in exorcism.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Quite skilled at his job, reasonably knowledgeable about magical phenomena, some nice magical items, is generally competent in a crisis... and his psychic abilities aren't even as strong as most of the more mundane psychics, let alone people like Mob.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Compared to the vengeful [[EvilOldFolks Kirin]] and the arrogant [[KnowNothingKnowItAll Dozen]], Banshomaru stands out as the only amicable member of the Sun Psychic Union.

->''I'd like to see Reigen's ability. Even if I try hard, it's not spectacular at all. We should let the whole nation witness how the next generation of psychics does it.''

A decrepit old man and the most senior psychic in the business, both literally and figuratively. He has formed the Sun Psychic Union as a way of both maximizing profits and maximizing his control over the business. Something of a TV star, he is one of the better-known psychics in the business. His actual abilities are unknown, though he appeared to display an unusual aura while performing an exorcism, hinting he may be an Esper.
----
* DisproportionateRetribution: He had Reigen exposed as a fraud for getting kick in the stomach by him.
* EvilOldFolks: He shames and humiliates anyone who dares to go freelance, and even tried to do so to Reigen even though his only interaction with Reigen was the latter saving his life.
* {{Gonk}}: His pudgy face is permanently stuck in a bizarre, wide-eyed grimace that looks something like the "Y U NO" meme. He actually manages to unsettle Mob.
* JerkAss: He will try to ruin the lives of any psychics who try to go freelance, despite the fact they usually pose no threat to him.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: He got a good look at Reigen's face during the Minori Asagiri exorcism when Reigen saved his life. His repayment was to try to ruin Reigen's life for going freelance (and for kicking him to drive Mogami out of him).
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He brings to mind [[GravityMaster Ishiguro]] given how they're both short, old psychic men who dress in black and have self-absorbed personalities.

----
* DirtyCoward: After being cursed during an exorcism mission, he initially planned to pass the curse onto Reigen. But to his relief, he ends up passing it to [[spoiler: Tome]] and doesn't feel much regret over it.
* EvilCounterpart: To Reigen. He's a suit wearing psychic with a fancy title, has his own apprentice and tends to use exaggerated expressions. (He even looks like Reigen with black hair). The differences are that he doesn't have Reigen's good heart and is willing to brush off his apprentice for the sake of business matters.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Despite claiming to be a powerful psychic, he instantly falls for Reigen's lies about spiritual power levels.
* PowerfulAndHelpless: He proclaims to be a high ranking psychic with connections to influential figures and celebrities. [[spoiler: Neither his powers or connections are able to help him when he finds himself cursed]].
* TheRival: To Reigen, much to his annoyance.

[[folder:??? (Spoilers)]]
!!Mob's ??? Form
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mob_7.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:???%]]

Each of Mob's explosions have him still in control, at least somewhat: ??? is an exception to this rule. This form activates when Mob goes unconscious in moments of extreme danger, causing his powers to automatically activate themselves in an attempt to protect Mob's body. Immensely powerful but completely out of control, ??? is a DangerousForbiddenTechnique that allows Mob to turn any fight into a CurbStompBattle at a major cost- ??? will attack everyone and ''anyone'' it deems as a threat to Mob's well-being with extreme prejudice, often going against Mob's wishes for a peaceful resolution to fights.

The "???" arc reveals that it's possibly a SplitPersonality that acts out Mob's best wishes the only way it knows how- through extreme violence. Many characters also theorize it may, in fact, be an entity entirely separate from Mob himself, which is seemingly confirmed when it takes control of Mob during Chapter 100 and identifies itself as a separate identity -- that of the "original" Shigeo Kageyama.
----
* ArcVillain: It takes this role during the titular "???" arc.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: In the ??? arc, [[spoiler:Ritsu]] is the only character able to confront ???% and come out unscathed. Why? [[spoiler:Because Ritsu acknowledged ???% as Shigeo.]]
* CainAndAbel: ???% doesn't trust even Ritsu, and accidentally injuring him was what caused Mob to pretty much give up their powers. ???% seems to think little of it, instead focusing on how their relationship with Tsubomi changed how Mob viewed their power.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: A unique example insofar as that Mob must be unconscious in order for it to activate. He also hates using it, and seems to be traumatized by the fact that he accidentally used it on Ritsu, hurting him.
* EnemyWithin: Mob used to be much livelier as a child until his accident convinced him to suppress his emotions and powers. All of that became ???%, and he's tired of being locked up.
* FinalBoss: He's the last, and most dangerous, antagonist of the overall storyline.
* HeroicSafeMode: Only activates when Mob is out of commission, and acts to protect his body without regard for the harm or destruction it causes.
* IJustWantToBeFree: ???% wants to let his power run wild even if it wrecks the world and hopes Tsubomi can still treat him as a normal person despite that.
* InsistentTerminology: He refuses to call Mob and Reigen by name. He insists ''he's'' the real Shigeo, and "Mob" is nothing more than an alter ego.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Flat-out ''the'' strongest esper in the world by an incredible margin. Unrestrained, he demolishes the city as a side effect of simply walking through it.
* SilentAntagonist: It's a bit surprising to see ???% [[SuddenlyVoiced talking]] when he finally takes over Mob's body completely, but there was a previous instance -- when Dimple tries to assure Mob that the corpses of his family he found are constructs, a barely in control Mob (his Explosion Counter is depicted as a smudge) growls that he's lying. The anime makes it explicit that this is ???% speaking with a much rougher and hateful tone of voice.
* SplitPersonality: It's essentially Mob's body on autopilot, having none of the mercy of NiceGuy natures of the normal Mob. Chapter 100 reveals that it is a manifestation of Mob's deepest desires that acts as the source of his power. He greatly resents Mob for shunning his own powers despite them saving him time and time again and Reigen for exploiting them.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Easily the strongest of the Explosions, large in part due to its complete lack of mercy or restraint.
* VillainHasAPoint:
** ???% is tired of Mob treating his powers like a taboo even though more often than not they were the only way to save themselves and others from harm.
** He also argues that Mob attempting to reject his own powers when Tsubomi wouldn't pay attention to him was a mistake because all her attitude meant was that she could treat him as a normal person when no one else would.
* WalkingSpoiler: Very little about it is revealed up until Chapter 100, where it becomes the ArcVillain and terrorizes Seasoning City, requiring the help of everyone, psychic or not, to take it down.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Its only desire is to protect himself, but it will go to any lengths to make this happen. Taken UpToEleven in Chapter 100, where it nearly destroys Seasoning City in an attempt to ''make sure that Mob's, or rather, his own LoveConfession goes smoothly''.

Her initial goal is to communicate with aliens via telepathy, and she demands that Mob help her find espers in hopes of locating a telepath. [[spoiler:Once she's finally made contact with aliens, she pursues a job at Reigen's office, wanting to learn more about the supernatural.]] \n----\n* AgentMulder: She's the only one in the Telepathy Club who actually believes in telepathy and using it to contact extraterrestrials, while the other members are just there to slack off.
* AscendedExtra: She assumes the role of the main character in ''Reigen'', since she's [[spoiler:an unofficial employee of Spirits and Such]] by that time.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: In ''Reigen,'' she's the first ONE protagonist not to have any sort of special abilities, either earned or naturally-gained. Also unlike Mob, instead of being more interested in living a normal life and being more popular, but sort of happening into unusual situations, Tome wants to become more deeply entrenched in the supernatural and occult of the world while being pushed away from it by others, and doesn't care about more mundane goings-on in life.
* DamselInDistress: She ends up in at least three perilous situations in the ''Reigen'' spinoff. It's justified in the sense that each of them were supernatural themed and Tome has no powers or past experiences to rescue herself.
* {{Determinator}}: Will overcome any kind of hurdles to keep the club afloat, even when the other club members point out that they really don't do anything of substance.
-->''President... we haven't done anything so far.''

* GoalInLife: She wants to figure out telepathy so she can use it to communicate with aliens and other extraterrestrial lifeforms.
* TheLadette: She's loud, crass, obnoxious, and loves video games (and aliens). She also seems to get along better with boys than with girls.
* LargeHam: She has a tendency to overreact and showcase her eccentric side when interacting with people.
* ManipulativeBastard: Can be this at times - she's particularly fond of CrocodileTears as a means to an end.
* PluckyOfficeGirl: [[spoiler:By Chapter 101, she's been the secretary at Spirits & Such for a few months, and accidentally causes Reigen to drop his birthday cake in an attempt to get a raise. ''Reigen'' reveals that she isn't really paid at all, meanwhile, and in fact just sort of decided she works there.]]
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She's the only female member of the Telepathy Club, although she is their leader which makes for an unusual variation of the trope.
** In ''Reigen'', [[spoiler: she's the first, and only, girl to join the Spirits & Such team]].
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Despite the name of the spin-off, Tome is the main protagonist while Reigen continues as the ''deuteragonist''.

[[quoteright:160:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tsubomi.png]]

->''"Get a clue."''

Tsubomi Takane (高嶺ツボミ; ''Takane Tsubomi'') is an attendee of Salt Middle School that Mob also goes to, making them classmates. Apparently, she and Mob were childhood friends, and Mob has a rather huge crush on her.
----
* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: Downplayed. But Anime Tsubomi is notably a little more cheerful and lively than her Manga counterpart, who comes across as a little more introverted and demure. Anime Tsubomi was also seen to actually be impressed by Mob's powers at first before getting bored later, while manga Tsubomi was not impressed from the get-go. Anime Tsubomi is also shown more to act like she has known Mob and considers him a friend as she should be as seen with her trying to cheer Mob on during the marathon (before stopping suddenly) as opposed to the manga where she is only seen in a single panel looking at Mob without saying anything.
* ChildhoodFriends: She and Mob used to be pretty close when they were younger. Although they somewhat drifted apart when Tsubomi lost interest in Mob's powers and began to hang out with other kids.
* FantasticallyIndifferent: Used to be impressed when Mob showed off his powers to her as kids, but the novelty quickly wore off. At one point she is glad to see him using his powers to help others, though.
* GaussianGirl: Mob tends to view her with a faint, sparkly pink glow around her, while everyone else just looks like walking vegetables to emphasize his tunnel vision towards her.
* HeroicWillpower: She is said to be strong-willed, the kind of person that doesn't follow the crowd. [[spoiler:She was one of the last people to join the broccoli cult, as her will resisted with ease for a long time.]]
* HiddenDepths:
** While we've seen very little of her, Dimple claims that she's 'too much woman' for Mob to handle based on what he's observed, and Ichi claims that she's hiding her real self. We know that she isn't impressed by Mob's power, and her reaction to [[spoiler:a tornado coming her way in the midst of a city-destroying earthquake is to sit on a bench and wait for the person she's meeting when everyone else had already evacuated.]]
** She also seems to be more perceptive than she looks. When she visits Reigen's office with a friend who's looking for relationship advice, she makes up a story about liking someone and asks advice from Reigen to test if he's really legitimate.
* JustFriends: [[spoiler:Ultimately, how she sees herself and Mob. She does care for him, but she never really saw him in a romantic light and rejects his confession near the end of Chapter 100.]]
* {{Malaproper}}: In the live action version, she does this a minimum of once per episode. In fact, a fake love letter designed to lure Mob does the Kanji version of this, substituting the kanji for "like" with the kanji for "boner"... demonstrating that she's notorious in-universe for this trope.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: In the anime, her eyes are drawn in a more typical anime style, being bigger and shinier, as opposed to the beadier eyes the rest of the cast has.
* PeerlessLoveInterest: Everyone thinks that she's ''way'' out of Mob's league and that he doesn't have a shot with her. [[spoiler:They're right.]]
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Other than being Mob's childhood friend and the subject of his crush, she doesn't have further character development and rarely appears at all because Mob and every other boy doesn't have the guts to even talk to her.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: She doesn't show up a lot, but impressing her is a large part of what motivates Mob and fuels his CharacterDevelopment.

----
* DumbMuscle: He's the least knowledgeable of his crew. In compensation, Musashi has a [[JusticeWillPrevail great sense of justice]].
* FaceOfAThug: Has been confused for a delinquent multiple times, even though it could not be farther from the truth. [[spoiler:It's implied that this being true for him, as well as the rest of the Body Improvement Club, is why they're introduced with only just enough members to count as a club, while the manga ends with much more novice members due to Mob's less threatening appearance.]]

* MusclesAreMeaningful: When Dimple takes over Musashi to protect Mob from an esper with psychically-enhanced muscles, he points out Mob was right all along and that the villain's power is no match for Musashi's diligent training.
* NiceGuy: He's willing to stick out for anyone who needed help, and is supportive of Mob. He even allows the Telepathy Club to continue using the room they were in, since they really only needed a place to store their equipment. [[spoiler:When Tenga is falsely accused by the Student Council of being a pervert, tainting his reputation, Musashi decides to help him shape up. Musashi also knows that Tenga isn't actually a pervert and defends Tenga from Shinji when he tries to get him expelled.]]
* TheWorfEffect: His group is a force to be reckoned with, but they're no match for Teruki's psychic powers or any antagonistic espers they come across.

[[spoiler:He learned this the hard way when Shinji and Ritsu frame him for stealing the girls' recorder mouthpieces and licking them. Even if it was obvious that he's being set up, everyone hates him to the point that they don't care if he did it or not and just use this as an excuse to get rid of him. Even his friends won't talk to him after the incident, including his female childhood friend. He was so hurt by this that he stopped showing up to class, which ruined his perfect attendance record he was so proud of. Once he realized how much he was hated, he decides to change himself after the incident and he gets better once he joins the Body Improvement club.]]

** He also dreams of becoming a mangaka when he grows up.
* HotBlooded: Is willing to punch someone at the first sign of provocation.
* JapaneseDelinquents: The story takes place in Japan, and he's a delinquent, so automatically he's this.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Despite (badly) lying that he doesn't care what people think during the School Cleanup, [[spoiler:Onigawara skipping his classes tips off the Body Improvement club as to just how badly he was hurt by it.]]
* RapidFireFisticuffs: The Oni Rush, a 16-hit string of punches. It's a ShoutOut to [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Josuke's stand Crazy Diamond]]. Very fitting considering they both sport the delinquent with a pompadour look.
* UnprovokedPervertPayback: He at one point is accused of stealing and licking recorder mouthpieces belonging to several female classmates, causing him to be seen as a pervert and verbally assaulted by the whole class. [[spoiler:He was actually the target of a school-wide FrameUp created by Ritsu and Shinji.]]

* TrashOfTheTitans: His bedroom, which is brimming with trash bags.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: To drive away all the delinquents of Salt Mid, [[spoiler:Kamuro and Ritsu frame them for perverted thefts and scandals, from which they couldn't defend themselves due to their reputation for violence. Ritsu, however, argues he's just doing it to relieve the stress he gets from his abusive family.]]

----
* BettyAndVeronica: Is interested in Tsubomi, and his haughtiness and concern for appearances vs Mob's earnest attempts at self-improvement make him the Veronica to Mob's Betty and Tsubomi's Archie.
* {{Irony}}: The person whose resignation led to the Telepathy Club's disbandment turns out to be a telepath himself.
* JerkJock: Shows up to the Telepathy Club and mocks them for being freaks during their first real push at finding other Telepaths. In the meantime, he's joined the Tennis Club which, while not a stereotypically Jock-ish activity, is still a sports club.
* MeaningfulName / ThemeNaming: Just like the rest of the Telepathy Club boys, he is named after the characters from Momotaro. In this case, the titular character himself. It's no wonder he turned out to be the most important (ex)member of the club.
* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: Grew jaded with his telepathy due to how aware it made him of the disconnect between peoples' words and thoughts.
* MySkullRunnethOver: His telepathy originally had this drawback, and he related a story where he couldn't sleep due to all the thoughts and emotions of his neighborhood blaring in his skull during a huge soccer match. He eventually learned to block out other thoughts.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: The only real {{aversion}} among the [[NondescriptClub Telepathy Club]], as he originally joined hoping it would be a support group for telepaths like himself, only to find that no one really cared about studying psychic powers except Tome, and even she spends most of her time being swept away by the laziness of the other members.
* {{Telepathy}}: On a much stronger level than the Shiratori Brothers, being able to read and transmit thoughts among the people around him.
* WalkingSpoiler: Originally his only role in the story was starting the chain of events that led to Mob meeting the Telepathy Club and joining the Body Improvement Club. After the Divine Tree Arc, he gains a much more prominent role.

* PinkIsFeminine: She wears a pink track suit, and is a girl.
* PsychicPowers: [[SuperSenses ESP]] - she has an extremely great chance at knowing what to do or where to go. It's not infallible, but she's able to complete a test of picking a specific card out of 10 with 60% accuracy, which is noted to be rather impressive.

* ElvisImpersonator: His pompadour and white, high-collared outfit make him appear as one.
* HighCollarOfDoom: Subverted, as he is not evil despite his outfit having a high collar.
* PsychicPowers: [[MindOverMatter Telekinesis]], but on a much less impressive scale than that of the main characters. Under Teruki's guidance, he was able to increase his powers beyond mere spoon-bending and can lift up to 10 kilograms.
** [[spoiler:At least in the anime, he has trained to the point he is stronger than the artificial espers he was once hopelessly outclassed by. He and Gou even coordinate to whip up an impressive fire tornado. Heís still weak compared to most other espers, but heís no longer pathetically so.]]

----
* TheBusCameBack: After being partly forgotten during the Second Claw Arc in favor of showing the other Awakening Lab Students, the brothers get a bit of solo screen time following the Divine Tree Arc where they finally interact with the people who'd be most interested in them: the Telepathy Club.
* HiddenEyes: Their eyes are always hidden by their glasses.
* IdenticalTwinIDTag: They would've looked exactly the same if it weren't their wearing different clothes and their physical appearances being based on two different shapes (Daichi's is a circle, while Kaito's is a square).
* PsychicPowers: TwinTelepathy. They eventually manage to train under Teruki enough to use their powers to act as a LivingLieDetector against another, much more powerful Esper, though they still can't directly read or transmit anyone's thoughts but each other's.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Their shared telepathy lets them see [[spoiler:through Claw's plans to fake their deaths and [[DespairEventHorizon drive Ritsu's group to despair]] so the kids could be brainwashed into becoming Claw soldiers]].
* {{Telepathy}}: What the twins have. At first, they just have TwinTelepathy, but thanks to Teruki they learn how to mind-read others as well. That said, they can't really send their thoughts to anyone else, as it just sounds like an annoying ringing in their ears.

!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KazuhikoInoue (Japanese), Creator/KyleHebert (English)
[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/suzuki_2.png]]

The Leader of the Claw Organization whose goal is to create a world where Espers reign over normal humans.
----
* AbusiveParents: Shou heavily implies it, and their confrontation results in [[spoiler:Touichirou beating his son so violently that his loyal {{Dragon}} couldn't stand to remain in the room]].
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Shou doesn't want to stop him only because of the pain of watching a loved one go off the deep end--it's also because watching your dad act like a cartoonish supervillain on national television is just plain mortifying.
* ArcVillain: Of the World Domination arc.
* ArchnemesisDad: To Shou.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Is the leader of Claw as well as its most powerful member.
* BadBoss: Sees his followers as tools for world domination, including the Super 5. [[spoiler:This leads to one Super 5 member as well as an entire sister organization defecting to Mob's side, and another Super 5 member saving the main characters to pay off a life debt owed to Mob.]]
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: He doesn't feel particularly bad about the destruction he causes whenever he wreaks havoc, as it happens on a daily basis.
* BoxedCrook: [[spoiler:The Japanese government offers to commute his sentence if he can help resolve ???%'s rampage in the finale, though he agrees for [[DeathSeeker for other reasons]].]]
* ChargedAttack: The crux of his world domination plan is unleashing a torrent of Psychic Energy he's been building up inside him for [[spoiler:''20 years''.]]
* AGodAmI: And has the power to back it up, able to grant decent psychic power to an army of 600 espers without losing any substantial amount of his own power.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Big time. He is hyped from relatively early in the series as the ultimate antagonist and greatest opponent, and while he causes unprecedented destruction and chaos during the World Domination arc, he is also soundly defeated during it. The manga is far from over at that point and there are another 2 key arcs after his defeat.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: Close, if it weren't for Mob. He experiences HeelRealization as he's about to self-destruct and expressed his wish to see his wife one last time and apologize to her, but ultimately accepts his fate and requests Mob to at least let him end it himself in order to atone. Mob says otherwise. [[spoiler:He later attempts to sacrifice himself to stop ???%, believing RedemptionEqualsDeath, but Shou successfully talks him out of it.]]
* FamilyEyeResemblance: He and his son have ice blue eyes with pinprick pupils, which distinguish them as two of the only four characters drawn with irises at all[[note]]The other two being Tsubome (in the anime) and 100% Courage Mob[[/note]]
* {{Foil}}: To Reigen. The two men are charismatic masters who guide their own groups of espers and even have a pupil with remarkable psychic potential. The difference is that Touichirou has high level psychic powers and intends to use them, and his subordinates, to achieve his dream of world domination. Reigen, on the other hand, has no psychic powers and instead encourages his students/followers not to abuse their powers as it doesn't make them any different from normal people.
* GreaterScopeVillain: The leader of Claw, who are first revealed when Mob, Teru, and Dimple launch an assault on their 7th Branch.
* HeelFaceTurn: After his HeelRealization from being saved by Mob, he turns himself in to the government despite this possibly meaning his death or torture. Although he has still have some of his bad parts, his personality has mellowed out and he is willing to fight on the side of good.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He's defined by his extremely solipsistic worldview that leads him to view everyone else, including his own son, as bit characters who exist only for him to exploit.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Averted hard. His entire MO involves embracing his esper powers and wanting to be recognized as a literal ''god'' of the universe. [[spoiler: But after being humbled by [[AllLovingHero Mob]] along with his son saving him from his suicidal mission to take down [[FinalBoss ???%]], Touichirou decides to give up his psychic powers and voices a new desire of living a normal life with his family]].
* IOweYouMyLife: His reason for stopping Mob on his rampage. The latter stopped him on his own, it's suitable that he does the same to repay his debt, although it ended up being futile.
* LackOfEmpathy: He's a solipsist who can't even recognize other people as ''people'', much less care about their feelings.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Serizawa, an unhealthy dependence which [[MoreThanMindControl Touichirou actively encourages]].
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Seeks esper superiority over the world, and at one point even [[PuttingOnTheReich performs the infamous Roman salute.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: You'd never guess from looking at him that he's almost fifty years old.
* PowerIncontinence: The more power he uses, the more he has trouble controlling his power. [[spoiler:At 100%, it threatens to make him self-destruct, which would not only kill him, but obliterate pretty much all of Spice City if Mob hadn't been there to absorb his psychic energy.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: While seemingly calm and mature on the surface, his defining characteristic is that he never grew out of his adolescent egocentrism and still holds a very childish view of how the world works.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In the anime. his eyes frequently glow red.
* ShadowArchetype: Mob claims during [[spoiler:100% Compassion]] that he sees Touichirou as what he could've grown up to be without the guidance of his mentor and friends. He also serves as one for Reigen, being a savior and mentor to a powerful but neurotic and gullible psychic whose powers they exploit. He represents what Reigen would be like if he was truly cold-hearted and didn't show regret in exploiting others for his personal gain.
* SharpDressedMan: Is never seen wearing anything else other than a suit.
* SuperpowerLottery
** BlowYouAway
** AnIcePerson
** PlayingWithFire
** ShockAndAwe
** BarrierWarrior
** GravityMaster
** {{Telekinesis}}
** SuperEmpowering
** EnergyAbsorption
* TakeOverTheWorld: He wondered if ruling the world was possible given his exceptional telekinetic abilities, and thus embarked on a mission to do so.
* UnusualEyebrows: Each one is serrated with three large "fins." An omake shows Shou worried about inheriting them.
* VillainousBreakdown: As Mob forces him to [[spoiler:use more and more of his power, he starts becoming more unstable due to the stress it puts on his body and mind. Just before he explodes, his last thoughts are wanting to see the wife he drove away with his psychic power, but wanting Mob to kill him before his power destroys Spice City.]]
* VillainsOutShopping: An omake shows that he delayed his plan to take over the world when he heard ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' was premiering.
-->'''Touichirou:''' ... World domination can wait.
* WorldsStrongestMan: He is indeed the strongest esper alive, and his output far exceeds that of Mob due to years of experience. Although, things change when he faces a SuperPowerMeltdown and Mob saves him at the last moment.
* WouldHurtAChild: One of Claw's prime objectives, which he instilled, is to kidnap as many youth with psychic potential and brainwash them to support his cause. That and [[spoiler: he shows no regret over physically harming his own son when Shou betrays him]].

Son of Touichirou Suzuki, and is considered a high-ranking member of Claw due to this.
----
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:Attempted to use one to bring Mob into the fight against his father. By staging Ritsu's and his parents' deaths, he was banking on getting Mob angry enough to attack Claw. However, while Dimple reassured Mob that the bodies of his family were fake, he still fought against Claw.]]
* ChargedAttack: His Charge Bomb ability allows him to store Psychic Energy over extended periods of time before unleashing it in one huge burst. The one he uses against [[spoiler:his father]] was the result of 3 months worth of charge-up.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: His least favorite food is citrus.
* EnigmaticMinion: He's quite cryptic about his intentions when introduced in the 7th Division Arc, hinting that he still has plans to forcibly "recruit" Ritsu for Claw, yet freely letting the heroes go after dissolving what was left of Scar. [[spoiler:It turns out he was scouting Ritsu as a prospective recruit to fight ''against'' Claw.]]
* FamilyEyeResemblance: Shares his father's ice blue eyes with pinprick pupils.
* {{Foil}}: To Ritsu, growing up as TheResenter to a much more powerful psychic in his life. In an interesting twist, Shou himself recognizes this [[spoiler:and approaches Ritsu to work together instead of Teru or Mob, because they have more in common.]]
* HotBlooded: Usually brimming with energy. His character profile lists what he's bad at as "Being Calm."
* OverlordJr: Is introduced as one, disposing of [[spoiler:Ishiguro]] on his father's behalf before mocking Mob for his passivity. [[spoiler:This turns out not to be the case, as not only has he been planning to take his father down for a good while, but he's never even attended a meeting (and ran from home when his dad started getting on his case about it).]]
* {{Invisibility}}: Can use his psychic powers to bend light waves around himself, rendering him invisible.
* KidHero: 13 years old, same as Ritsu.
* MissingMom: His mother was driven away from the family by his father's increasing obsession with power. [[spoiler:It's then subverted when Touichirou apologizes to Shou for driving his mother away, only for Shou to reveal out that his mom only left ''Touichirou''--Shou himself always kept in contact with her]].
* PsychicPowers: Seems to be around the same level as Teru in terms of his Esper abilities in that he's stronger than most Claw members but still a step below the extremely powerful Espers.
* ReverseMole: [[spoiler:Only works in Claw to find people willing to take down his father.]]
* SaveTheVillain: [[spoiler: He helps out his father when he decides to take on ???% in Chapter 100]].
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His favorite food is pork curry (spicy).
* YouHaveFailedMe: He personally disposes of [[spoiler: Ishiguro for allowing his sector to be compromised and for throwing a SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum when he loses]].

The upper echelon of Claw who work directly under [[BigBad President Suzuki]]. They are regarded as Suzuki's most trusted enforcers and fight alongside him during the World Domination Arc.
----
* EliteMooks: {{Zigzagged}}. Suzuki recognized them as being more powerful than the common esper and chose them to be part of his inner circle. But while most of the enforcers (Shibata, Minegishi and Shimazaki) provide a difficult battle for the heroes, the other enforcers (Hatori and Serizawa) are defeated much more quickly.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: After the World Domination Arc, Serizawa takes a job at the Spirits and Such Consultation Office while Minegishi works as a florist. And even before that, they would use their powers to save Reigen and Shou from the president's wrath]].
* PetTheDog: It's implied that Minegishi and Shimazaki have a soft spot for Serizawa. Particularly showing concern whenever the bear incurs Suzuki's bad side.
* PsychopathicManChild: Much like the Scar bosses, most of them have become so dependent on their psychic powers that they believe themselves to be superior over humans and weaker espers. [[spoiler: Although three of the five do make an effort to live life as responsible adults after the defeat of their president]].
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: A strongman who relies on psychic steroids, a tech nerd, a florist, a blind {{Ikemen}}, and a former {{Hikikomori}}.

* NerdGlasses: Wears thick glasses that always seem a little glazed over.
* OutsideContextMagic: Even he's not sure how his Electronic Control actually works.
* SquishyWizard: He relies on electronic devices such as drones to do his combat for him. [[spoiler:A simple suplex was able to knock him out in a single blow.]]
* SupportPartyMember: He is by far the least combat-worthy member of the Super 5, with only a group of underwhelming drones to protect himself, but in a modern world ruled by technology, he can single-handedly shut down most of the {{Muggles}}' best weapons.
* {{Technopath}}: His Electronic Control allows him to effortlessly manipulate any electronic device.

----
* TheBrute: Big, strong, none too smart, and on the evil side.
* DumbMuscle: Physically the strongest Esper in Claw, powerful enough to qualify for the Super 5, but none too smart.
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: [[spoiler: Subverted. He's applied for more than 20 jobs but has been denied from each one since the only work experience he can provide is working for the Super 5]].
* TheJuggernaut: Natch. Once he gets going, he moves in on his target as inexorably as Death itself and plows through absolutely anything and anyone in the way.
* LargeAndInCharge: The tallest character in the series, and a member of the Claw's Super 5.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Turns out that Psycho-Steroids are a cheap method of attaining super strength, as Dimple bringing out the potential in the Body Improvement Club's president, who earned his muscles the hard way, is capable of defeating him.
* TemporaryBulkChange: His Psycho-Steroids ability allows him to control his muscle mass with his mind.
* UnstoppableRage: Once he activates his Psycho-Steroids, even Yuusuke's knockout spray completely fails to work against him. For reference, this same spray had previously knocked '''100% Animosity Mob''' out cold.

!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NoriakiSugiyama (Japanese)
[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shimazaki.png]]

A member of the Claw's Super 5, and one of the few Espers known to be able to use two techniques simultaneously. His specialties include Teleportation, Movement Prediction, and reading the auras of other Espers.
----
* AuraVision: His Mind's Eye technique lets him see the auras of other espers - but it makes him blind to non-espers, leaving him open to attacks from someone with no powers [[spoiler:like Reigen.]]
* BarrierWarrior: Can manipulate his own Psychic Membrane of his own accord.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: While using Mind's Eye.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: His eyes are shown to be nothing more than black masses of scribbles on the rare occasion that he opens them.
* BlindSeer: While physically blind, his extrasensory perception is keen enough to border on precognition. He can further focus this to instantly identify and attack [[PressurePoint vulnerable nerve clusters]] in his opponents.
* CherryTapping: Defeats several powerful espers, including ex-Claw members. And when he detects that Mob is approaching him, he immediately concedes defeat after getting dealt another surprise attack [[spoiler:by Reigen utilizing a "Self Defense Rush". He concludes Reigen must be so powerful that he can hide his esper aura]]. He then runs away after Mob angrily asks him how destroying part of the city, and hurting many innocent people along with his friends could be a case of ForTheEvulz and ItAmusedMe.
* DisabilitySuperpower: His super senses seem to be particularly heightened due to the fact that he's blind.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Apparently because he's blind. Opens them when he uses his Mind's Eye technique.
* FailedASpotCheck: He has to dedicate at least ''some'' attention to his surroundings if he wants to predict movements, which means centering his attention on one thing or forcing him to deal with too many variables at once can cause him to slip up. Thus, [[spoiler:both his decision to concentrate on espers and the sheer power of Mob's aura leave everything else so BeneathNotice that Reigen can just casually walk up to him and beat him senseless]].
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: His Mind's Eye technique reveals black sclera with glowing pinprick pupils.
* GodzillaThreshold: Arguably the strongest and most dangerous member of the Super 5 as he's capable of taking on [[spoiler: the combined efforts of Reigen's Esper team.]] And even then, [[spoiler: he only decides to quit after being taken by surprise by Reigen's "Self Defense Rush" and sensing Mob's intense power levels]].
* HeyYouHaymaker: He's extremely fond of these, as teleportation grants him many opportunities.
* NotQuiteFlight: While he ''can'' levitate, his preferred method of aerial travel is to teleport to whatever spot in the air he wishes to be in that particular second and keep 'jumping' to cheat inertia.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: He wears all black, has a red shirt, and is helping Suzuki with his world domination schemes.
* SharpDressedMan: He's dressed quite handsomely.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Once cornered by Reigen's team, he comes to the conclusion that fighting an "esper able to conceal his aura" [[spoiler:really just Reigen sneaking up while he's focused on the others]], as well as sensing Mob's power being far above his own, is a losing battle and surrenders. Once he realizes how angry Mob is at the idea of him destroying cities for fun, he shows genuine terror and teleports out of the battlefield post-haste.
* SmugSnake: Claims superiority over how he's able to predict the movements of others, [[spoiler:but his own movements are super predictable as well, and once he's distracted, he goes down hard.]]
* SuperPowerLottery: Has an exceptional number of specialties compared to most psychics.
* SuperSenses: Can predict his enemies' movements this way.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Unlike the other enforcers, Shimazaki's whereabouts after the World Domination Arc are a total mystery. The only clue we get in the omakes is him in a panel wearing a labcoat]].

* ApologeticAttacker: His fight with Mob has him apologizing a few times whenever he hits him.
* BerserkerTears: He starts to tear up when Mob tells him that he's being used by Claw. Serizawa then panics over what he would do with his life if he didn't have Claw anymore.
* BigDamnHeroes: He manages to rescue [[spoiler: Reigen just ''seconds'' before Suzuki incinerates him]].
* {{Claustrophobia}}: {{Inverted}}. Having lived his whole life in isolation like a Franchise/DisneyPrincess, Serizawa is comfortable in closed spaces but feels distressed whenever he goes outdoors. [[spoiler: He gets better after taking a job at Spirits and Such]].
* TheDragon: The only member of the Super 5 to closely fill this role as he's the last member fought before Mob confronts Suzuki.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Eventually takes a job at Spirits and Such.]]
* {{Hikikomori}}: Feared his own powers, and isolated himself from the world for 15 years as a result before being discovered by the Claw.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: His reason for joining Claw was because he finally found people who had powers just like him and weren't afraid of him. [[spoiler: This gives Mob an opportunity to reach out to him to show that they're NotSoDifferent. Once they talk things out, Serizawa pulls an official HeelFaceTurn and becomes friends with the heroes]].
* ImportantHaircut: [[spoiler:Reigen gives him a much cleaner cut and shaves off his stubble upon getting his job at Spirits and Such.]]
* MessyHair: A short, ratty looking mess of curly hair. [[spoiler:Reigen's first order of business upon hiring him is giving him a much cleaner haircut.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Hero pulling it on antagonist example. Mob realizes that he was in a similar situation to Serizawa's and helps him realize that.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Because of his isolation and Touichirou's manipulation, Serizawa's convinced that he's working a perfectly legitimate job as the bodyguard of a law-abiding CEO rather than serving TheDragon in a terrorist organization.
* ParasolOfPain: His parasol is infused with incredible psychic powers, allowing him to use it as a strong shield and weapon.
* PermaStubble: Prior to his ImportantHaircut above. During his time in isolation, it was a full-on BeardOfSorrow.
* SecurityBlanket: His Umbrella, which he takes with him everywhere as an extension of his room from his days as a hikikomori. When Mob and Dimple try to take it away from him, it causes his powers to go haywire, not unlike 100%/???% Mob.
* ShadowArchetype: To Mob, where they both fear their own powers, and are both gullible enough to have been used by others for their own ends, the main difference being that the people who used Mob eventually came to genuinely care about him. [[spoiler:By Chapter 101, working at Spirits & Such is even shown to have given them similar character development, with both of them becoming comfortable enough in their skin that Mob is Vice President of the Body Improvement Club, while Tome describes Serizawa as the real backbone of Spirits & Such.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: For the Super 5, where he's a decent guy being used by Touichirou.

!!Scar
[[folder:General Tropes]]
[[quoteright:500:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_94.png]]

A sub-group within Claw, comprised of people who have at some point defied Touichirou, and are branded as a scar as a warning against further betrayal.
----
* {{Chuunibyou}}: The unifying characteristic of members of Scar (and Claw in general) is that its members never grew out of their middle-school delusions of grandeur and thus do not understand how utterly ridiculous their Legion of Doom schtick and obsession with PowerLevels are.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: All Scar members have had a scar given to them by Touichirou. [[spoiler:Koyama and Sakurai don't have them anymore after Touichiro's defeat, so it can be presumed that those on all the other members were healed as well.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Many of its members sided with Reigen's group later on.]]
* ManChild: Reigen surmises that the underlying characteristic of ''all'' the members is that they are a bunch of kids who never grew up. He correctly surmises that their attempts to invoke RuleOfCool, like Ishiguro's gas mask and Muraki's ShouldersOfDoom, are due to that.
* PsychopathicManchild: They're also trying to take over the world, no matter the cost to others.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: An aspect which they heavily play up thanks to their arrested development.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Being essentially grown-up children who relied entirely on their powers, a normal punch is enough to wind them when they're distracted. [[spoiler:Similarly, scolding them like children is enough to get them to back down.]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler:They aren't disposed of immediately, but upon becoming Scar are considered 100% Expendable.]]

[[caption-width-right:350:[[labelnote:Click here to see Ishiguro without his mask on.]]https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_75.png[[/labelnote]]]]

Representative of the 7th Branch of Claw, and overseer of the Scar group for that branch. His special power is the manipulation of gravity, to the extent of creating mini-black holes.
----
* AdaptationExpansion: In the live action version, [[spoiler:he's a friendly takoyaki stand operator who acts as sort of [[TheConfidant confidant]] for Mob, using his power to hide his extensive facial scars.]]
* ArcVillain: Serves as the main threat of the 7th Division Arc.
* TheConfidant: [[spoiler:In the live action version, he is there to lend an ear to Mob during most episodes.]]
* CoveredInScars: Under his mask. [[spoiler:In the live action version, he hides his scars with his powers until he is drained completely by Dimple.]]
* EvilOldFolks: Revealed as this when Reigen tears his mask off during 100% Gratitude.
* GasMaskLongcoat: Wears a long cloak and a Gas Mask at all times, complete with voice changer, to the extent that, like [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 the Pyro]], no one knows what he looks like, or if he's even a "he" at all. [[spoiler:He is a he, and an extremely old one at that.]]
* GodhoodSeeker: Works with Claw to create a world where Espers will be worshiped as Gods.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: [[spoiler:His entire head is ''covered in them'' under his mask.]]
* GravityIsPurple: Especially in the live action version, his powers have a distinctive purple-and-black color scheme.
* GravityMaster: His psychic specialty involves manipulating gravity, and his special attack, "Black Sphere," essentially creates tiny black holes to use as weapons, he can also increase the weight of his own body to use as a weapon.
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Sees normal humans as little better than monkeys, and views Espers as inherently superior.
* PsychopathicManChild: When he gives a rant, sans mask, his art shifts meaningfully to the point that he looks like an infant... which is fitting, since, without his mask or a voice changer, his rant about his motives (Basically, he wanted everyone to pay attention to him and praise him for how great he was) is so childish as to be infantile.
* SamusIsAGirl: Other members of Scar note that that nobody has seen his face or heard their voice unaltered, so his actual gender is up in the air as well. [[spoiler:When he's finally unmasked, the first reaction people have is shock that he ''isn't'' a woman in disguise.]]
* SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum: [[spoiler: He refuses to accept Reigen's words of wisdom and decides to use his power to destroy the entire 7th Branch. Fortunately, [[ReverseMole Shou]] was having none of it]].
* VocalDissonance: Uses a Voice Changer which makes him sound childish in the original or a teenage girl in the English Dub.

!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ShinichiroMiki (Japanese), Creator/KeithSilverstein (English)
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_157.png]]

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. His special power is Psychic Spiral, which grants his fists power like a drill of psychic energy, allowing them to pierce psychic barriers.
----
* ArmorPiercingAttack: He specializes in shattering telekinetic barriers using his Psychic Spiral punches.
* CombatPragmatist: He will do anything to win a battle. Opponent too powerful? [[InTheBack Cheap shot them while they're distracted]]. And if that doesn't work... knockout gas to the face.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Not him, but the delinquents that had been wanting to fight 'White T Poison' were horrified by the [[NoHoldsBarredBeatDown brutal beatdown]] he delivers on Mob and were worried he would beat Mob to death.
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: [[spoiler: In Chapter 100, he works in a grocery store alongside Sakurai]].
* FullContactMagic: While many Espers utilize the trope Koyama is one of the more stand out examples on account of him being a brawler who's psychic powers enhance his attacks.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A large, diagonal scar across the bridge of his nose. Like all Scar members, it was received by betraying the larger organization.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Eventually chooses to join Reigen's group to fight against Scar.]]
* IronicName: His first name, "Megumu," means "Kindness."
* KnightOfCerebus: While prior arcs could get dark at times, they were still overall humorous or at the very least interspersed with gags. While he eased up later, Koyama's first appearance, meanwhile, was downright brutal.
* LogicalWeakness: Being a melee-oriented Esper, Koyama may be able to punch through barriers and projectiles, but he lacks a strong answer to ranged telekinesis. The second time Mob faces him, he simply [[MindOverMatter grabs him with telekinesis]] and thrashes him without even needing to resort to his 100% power.
* NoBrows: Completely lacks eyebrows.
* OhCrap: The first notable fight to overcome Mob, not through sheer physical power but by simply using knockout gas that the psychic barrier wasn't expecting to try to stop. Then Mob gets back up in his unconscious state, and Koyama ''feels it'' with so much terror that he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere grabs Ritsu and makes a break for it rather than continue fighting.]]
* ThisIsADrill: His Psychic Spiral acts as such, enhancing the force of his punches and allowing him to break through psychic barriers.
* VillainDecay: The first time he faces Mob, he beats him to near-death, forcing Mob into 100% Animosity, and then manages to counter even that, only leaving when Mob's [[SuperpoweredEvilSide ???% Mode]] is engaged. The second time, Mob just trashes him telekinetically with little effort. Justified since this time, Mob was fully aware of what the guy is capable of, knew exactly how to counter him (avoid melee at all costs), and had no intention of going easy on him either.
* WouldHurtAChild: While all of Scar, and Claw, specifically target Espers of around Middle-School Age, Koyama's introduction involves him specifically having no problem brutalizing Ritsu, Mob, and a larger group of delinquents.

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. His special power is Curse Toy, which allows him to enhance mundane items with powerful psychic abilities.
----
* AbsurdCuttingPower: His sword is actually just a plastic toy. His psychic abilities have made it this.
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: [[spoiler: In chapter 100, he's revealed to be working with Koyama in a grocery store. It's also stated that he's Koyama's manager]].
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Wears thick glasses and is generally unpleasant. [[spoiler: Subverted when he joins the good guys later on]].

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Eventually chooses to join Reigen's group to fight against Touichirou and the Super 5.]]
* LethalJokeItem: His ability allows him to turn mundane items into these with special curses, such as taking a plastic sword and an air gun and turning them into weapons on par with the real deal. [[spoiler: In Chapter 100, he turns a pair of ''tongs'' into a weapon to fight against ???%]]
* PowerNullifier: One of his curses was placed on a room in the Scar HQ that allowed it to act like this.
* ThePowerOfHate: Sakurai was able to unlock his power by cursing the world and hating everyone for making him suffer.

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. His special power is Air Whip, which allows him to psychically condense air into whips that stretch out from his hands.
----

----
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A vertical one that bisects his chin.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He uses his power to traumatize Mob, who goes 100% as a result and instinctively amplifies and redirects Mutou's illusion back against him. We don't see what he sees, but it gives him a violent seizure and knocks him out cold.
* MasterOfIllusion: His favorite kind seems to be bloody corpses, specifically of friends and family in order to catch his opponents off guard.
* MindRape: He manages to inflict Mob with this after taking advantage of Mob's grieving over an apparently dead Ritsu. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Unfortunately, this also triggers Mob's 100% which redirects Mutou's attack back at him, knocking him out]].
* VillainousCheekbones: Not as prominent as Miyagawa's, as they result mostly from his chin.

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. His specialty is powerful Pyrokinesis.
----
* AnimeHair: A spiky hairstyle resembling that of a [[Anime/DragonBallZ Super Saiyan]]. The anime even shows it being Blonde.
* FemmeFatalons: One of the rare male examples - he has long and sharp fingernails coated in dark nail polish.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A small scar on his right eyebrow.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Teru envelops him in a psychic barrier, causing him to fry himself with his own flames.
* LeanAndMean: He's incredibly lanky, and one of the most vicious members of Scar.
* MortonsFork: He continuously produces such massive amounts of flames that other psychics cannot find a window to attack. However, while his fire can be repelled by a psychic barrier, the heat from it cannot, so sooner or later his foes end up dying, whether it's by burning to a crisp trying to attack or by cooking to death in their own barrier trying to defend themselves. Teru manages to TakeAThirdOption: using his barrier '''as''' a means of attack, turning Miyagawa's flames on himself.
* PlayingWithFire: A powerful pyrokinetic. That he's still alive after Teru tricks him into immolating himself shows that Pyrokinetics are somewhat flame-retardant in this universe.
* SmugSuper: His pyrokinesis is impressive, but his cocky attitude was his downfall.
* VillainousCheekbones: Has a very gaunt face.

A member of the Scar sub-group of the 7th Branch of Claw. Her specialty is Hardened Aura, which allows her to harden her muscles to fight.
----
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: In the anime, her relationship with Mukai is much closer than in the manga. In the manga, her reason for fighting Mob was for a good fight where the anime makes it more about revenge for destroying Mukai's puppets.
* BareFistedMonk: Fights entirely with her fists, and works out extensively.
* BoobsOfSteel: Her bust is played up in the anime, and she's one of the most physically capable members of Scar.
* CloseRangeCombatant: She notes that if Mob is able to get a good telekinetic attack out, it puts her at a disadvantage.
* CoolBigSis: Seems to be one to Mukai, as she's shown hanging out in Tsuchiya's workout room, and Tsuchiya seems to be driven to fight particularly hard against Mob due to the fact that he made Mukai cry.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A scar along her right cheek.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Inverted - while most of the men of Scar have fancy psychic attacks like illusions, pyrokinesis, and astral clones, Tsuchiya relies on her fists and her hardened aura to fight.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Eventually chooses to join Reigen's group to fight against Claw.]]
* LightningBruiser: Her hardened aura plus her physical training means she hits hard enough with her bare fists to draw blood from Mob, and the anime shows her using hit-and-run tactics at an extremely fast pace.
* PetTheDog: When she realizes Mob is crying during her beat-down and learns that he doesn't want to hurt a lady, she pauses to encourage him and tell him that it's alright to fight a woman. [[CurbStompBattle This backfires slightly on her]].
* SuperStrength: Her Hardened Aura grants her this.

* FluffyTheTerrible: Tends to name his spirits cute things like "Cookie-chan" or "Pudding-chan."

----
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: She wasn't as close to Tsuchiya in the manga and didn't witness her loss to Mob. In the anime not only did she see it but she is last seen in the arc crying on the defeated Tsuchiya's shoulder.
* AnimeHair: Four braids that stick out at straight angles from her head, with a bun in the back, which gives it a similar appearance to a puppet
* BerserkButton: Go on, hurt her puppets, [[SchmuckBait I dare you]].

An entity born from collective belief in the urban legend of the same name, she manifests as a woman with a mouth sliced open along her whole jaw, who asks her victims if she's pretty before slicing them up with her scissors.

In the anime, she is changed to a woman who walks around, dragging several broken dolls on a string. Upon encountering someone, she asks them if they're thirsty before drowning them in the swamp. Her origin, however, remains the same.
----
* AbsurdlySharpClaws: In the anime, since she is changed to a different urban legend, she has no scissors but has extremely long, deadly sharp claws instead.
* AdaptationDeviation: She is changed to a completely different character in the anime, though her function (an entity born of collective belief, which can only be exorcised by someone who has no fear in her) remains the same.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: In the anime, the Dragger is able to shatter the dolls she drags around to enhance one of her arms and form a razor-sharp blade.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: The collective belief in her urban legend gave form to her.
* CreepyDoll: In the anime, she drags several large, partially shattered dolls on a string behind her.
* EmotionEater: Because she is born from the belief of others, she adopts the characteristics attributed to her. Thus, being afraid of her makes her become more and more deserving of that fear, and thus more powerful. Anyone who sees her as an unstoppable threat cannot destroy her by any means, but Mob - who feels no fear in her presence - is able to obliterate her with little effort.
* OneWingedAngel: In the anime, she fuses with the entire swampland she haunts as her final stand, turning into a massive, monstrous water and mud elemental.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Subverted. She is not a ghost or any sort of traditional evil spirit, but instead more of a collective {{tulpa}}.
* ShearMenace: In the manga, in keeping with the overall myth of the Kuchisake-Onna.
* SlasherSmile: Like the original myth.
* StringyHairedGhostGirl: Appears as traditional onryō with either a mutilated (manga) or rotting (anime) face.
* {{Tulpa}}: She is effectively an unwillingly and collectively created thoughtform.
* {{Youkai}}: In the manga, she's inspired by the real-life myth of the Kuchisake-Onna. In the anime, her origins are different and she doesn't seem to be based on any particular youkai.
* YourMindMakesItReal: She was born by the belief in her, and fearing her makes her even stronger. Mob being unaware of her legend allows him to exorcise her without incident.

[[folder:Odor Sniffer]]
An evil spirit born of a ghost who was socially awkward around girls in life. Haunts an All-Girls School.
----
* NotSoDifferent: Feels this way about Mob, saying that they're both the "Supporting Cast of Youth."
* ThePeepingTom: His modus operandi.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Uses his techniques as an evil spirit to peep on girls in the bathroom and steal their personal items. He only reveals himself truly when Mob traps him in the school's gymnasium.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He's basically a [[MonsterOfTheWeek spirit of the week]], but his regrets of not living his youth to the fullest is what motivate Mob to join the Body Improvement Club over the Telepathy Club.

[[folder:Keiji Mogami (Spoilers)]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkiraIshida (Japanese), Creator/SeanChiplock (English)
[[quoteright:320:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mogami.png]]

A historically famous and extremely powerful Esper who became the strongest evil spirit upon committing suicide. He is encountered possessing a rich girl named Minori Asagiri.
----
* AffablyEvil: Very soft-spoken and calm. He's genuinely like this and at most expresses mild surprise when something unexpected happens. Even in the face of utter defeat he simply delivers an analytical comment about it and escapes.
* AmbiguousSituation: It's not entirely clear what happens to him after he gets free in the World Domination Arc. However, he is most likely lurking out there somewhere considering that an Evil Spirit has to be at peace to pass on, something he certainly wasn't.
* ArcVillain: Of the aptly named Mogami Arc. Notable for having the longest personal screentime of any individual villain, even more than Suzuki, since The World Domination arc attention is diluted between the massive amount of characters present on it.
* AssassinOutclassin: After he stopped working as a hitman, he mentions many were sent to kill him. Keiji doesn't really expand on this... but he is shown walking away from a mountain of corpses.
* TheCorrupter: Comes one step away from mentally breaking Mob by throwing him into an utterly hopeless world in an attempt to make him adopt his world view. He ultimately fails but only because of Dimple's intervention.
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: Constantly has these. He likes the look enough to actually manifest his spirit form with them.
* {{Curse}}: While he was alive laying these was his SignatureMove as an esper.
* DefiantCaptive: [[spoiler: Despite being captured by Matsuo, he proves to be his most difficult and untamed spirit among his collection]].
* DemonicPossession: Possesses a young rich girl in his first appearance. Attempts to pull this on Mob's vacant body when he uses the out of body technique, but Dimple fortunately takes the body first and protects it.
* DissonantSerenity: He views people who pick on others as a plague on society and casually claims their lives have no worth when corrupting Mob.
* DreamLand: Capable of creating one inside the person he is possessing. He can shape it to his will and alter its fundamental rules, but his control over it wavers if the victims inside are strong enough to resist the MindRape
* EarlyBirdCameo: Only in the anime - he can be seen on the left side of the screen alongside multiple other psychics in the opening narration of the first episode.
* EldritchAbomination: Powerful enough to qualify as this, and Dimple openly refers to him as the strongest evil spirit.
* EmbarrassingNickname: [[spoiler:Like all spirits Matsuo captures, Mogami gets a sugary pet name--Pudding-chan.]]
* EnergyAbsorption: In life, he absorbed the power of Evil Spirits so that he'd become an exceptionally powerful one in death. When he's re-released during Claw's attempted coup, he decides to drain the energy from Claw's esper army as well. Mob later copies this style of ability during the final showdown with Claw's Boss.
* FamedInStory: One of the world's most known psychics by virtue of being the first one to actually show the world the supernatural occurrences, psychic powers and paranormal events on television back when he was a teenager, and remaining as a TV celebrity until much later. He's equally famed in the spirit community for being the strongest and most dangerous evil spirit.
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: He likes to use the appearance he had as a 24-year-old, which he describes as his peak in human life. Somewhat unique in this since almost all evil spirits use outright monstrous forms or at least humanesque abominations, but Mogami likes his actual human visage and only starts to drop it when he is forced to use larger amounts of power.
* FreudianExcuse: When it became clear that people cared more about using his powers than they did helping him as a person, especially when his mother was dying of illness, he started becoming bitter towards all of humanity. His time spent as a hitman and the reveal that his mother's illness was a result of his powers drawing evil spirits towards her lead him to snap completely, and declare that powers like his and Mob's should only be used for their own gain.
* GreenThumb: Can possess plants to create large vine-like monsters.
* HumanoidAbomination: As an esper, he ate Evil Spirits for breakfast - in a much more literal sense than Mob.
* KnightOfCerebus: The biggest of the ''entire'' series, massively outclassing Koyama or any other villain in this regard. His arc is by far the darkest in the series.
* InstantDeathRadius: His life drains ability allows him to kill people around him. Even low-class espers get instantly killed by this. He comments that they are a nice meal.
* LotusEaterMachine: Creates one inside of Minori's body when Mob invades with the idea of turning him into a sympathizer of his twisted ideals.
* MindRape: He basically inflicts this upon Mob for a whopping six months. He comes ''dangerously'' close to breaking him and only fails due to Dimple's intervention.
* NightmareFace: Produces a pretty horrifying one when itís first discovered that Minori is in fact possessed. Notable for simply projecting the horror as a shadow behind her rather than wearing it himself. In the mind world, as he becomes damaged and forced to use more of his power his appearance deteriorates over time, giving a more monstrous look.
* ThePowerOfHate: He believes that the most troubled a person is and the more negative emotions they harbor the stronger the evil spirit they will produce upon death (if any). ''He's right'' and outright uses it as a part of his ThanatosGambit.
* ProfessionalKiller: Became one in an attempt to pay his mother's medical bills.
* PsychicPowers: He was an esper in life. Notable because he ''lacked'' the [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] that is signature to espers in the series. He still had the classic energy barrier and the ability to see and exorcise spirits though. His own "unique" power was to lay curses on others. These could even be lethal, which later allowed him to become a hitman. As a spirit, he manages to grasp telekinesis, but of a slightly different type than that of an actual esper.
* SatanicArchetype: Once among the most famous and powerful Espers, he eventually fell from grace and ended up becoming the most powerful evil spirit in existence. He is also in command of his own legion of the damned, composed of the thousands of evil spirits he absorbed. While inside Minori's body, Mogami tries to corrupt Mob into a self-centered Esper like himself or the Claw members.
* SealedEvilInACan: Eventually captured and named [[FluffyTheTerrible "Pudding-Chan"]] by Matsuo. He gets out much later during The World Domination Arc.
* SecondPersonNarration: He serves as this to Mobís first-person while he traps him in the Mind World. Itís almost pure nightmare fuel.
* SignatureMove: The ability to lay curses was this for him while alive. As an evil spirit, he prefers a combination of MindRape and EnergyAbsorption.
* SoLastSeason: {{Averted}}. His brief appearance on the World Domination Arc shows that he is still as absolutely terrifying as last time. He effortlessly kills a large esper squadron and barely bats an eye as he overpowers a member of the Super 5... each of whom were more or less as strong as ''Teru.''
* ThanatosGambit: Step 1: Consume the essence of evil spirits. Step 2: Commit suicide. Step 3: Become an evil spirit too powerful to be exorcised.
* VillainHasAPoint: Downplayed. He is not entirely wrong in saying that the world is fundamentally unfair, nor is he wrong in his assessment that, under different circumstances, Mob's life certainly '''could''' have gone down a much darker path. But ultimately, he's just horrifically petty and selfish - far from actually helping Mob like he claims to, all he's doing is artificially making Mob's life terrible just so he can gain a powerful follower.
** In his second appearance, he tells Mob that sometimes it's important to be hard on people when kindness won't change them. Mob would use this lesson when fighting against [[GreaterScopeVillain Touichirou]].
* VillainRespect: In his second appearance, he spares Minegishi's life thanks to Mob vouching how it's important to have faith in people and their ability to change.
* WakeUpCallBoss: The first opponent against whom Mob uses a completely positive 100%... as well as being the only one to actually ''overpower'' said 100%. Starting with him, major villains are now dramatically harder to defeat, always requiring more than simply going 100% and blasting said opponent to hell, basically because ''it's no longer enough.''
* WeirdnessMagnet: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] - it was this exact quality of his that caused his mother to become sick, with her becoming an evil spirit and yelling at him about this after she died.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After he's released again during the World Domination Arc, he disappears with his fate being left unknown.
* WorldsStrongestMan: He's consistently referred as the strongest evil spirit and has the feats to live up to it.
* {{Yakuza}}: In order to raise money, he acted as a mob hitman.
* YearInsideHourOutside: When he trapped Mob inside the illusion world created by him, Mob experiences 6 months worth of school mockery while Reigen and Dimple have been watching him for 30 minutes.

Originally a disguise taken by Dimple based off of a sketch made of Mob, Lord Psycho Helmet is, in reality, a sentience that had been developing inside the Divine Tree since the beginning of its existence, and was unleashed after Dimple relinquished control over its power.
----
* GreenThumb: It can create roots and copies of itself made from the broccoli it was born from.
* HorrorHunger: Refers to Mob as nutrients in his first true appearance, and subsequently eats Dimple.
* HumanoidAbomination: It's an unnerving facsimile of Mob made out of broccoli roots.
* TheStarscream: Initially it was used by Dimple as a means of brainwashing the cityfolk. But after Dimple decides to give up his cult scheme, Lord Psycho Helmet decides to continue his work by taking over.

[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shinra_banshoumaru_fullbody_s2.png]]

->''Even though I can't exorcise a flasher, I can still bring you to justice!''

A psychic from a nearby city who is competing for the title of "rising star of the paranormal world" with Reigen. While initially antagonistic, the two become friends after being forced to work together on an assignment.
----
* {{Acrofatic}}: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]. While he is more athletic than his size indicates, his stamina isn't very high. Even when he's possessed by Dimple, he still wasn't in good shape.
* TheCameo: He appears in the ''Reigen'' manga spin-off where he gives Tome's high school teacher an amulet to protect him from a spirit.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: While still no Esper, he actually is more of a psychic than Reigen thanks to his blessed necklaces, which can entangle evil spirits. Taken even further when Dimple uses him as a host, giving him true Esper powers for the duration of the possession.
* HeelFaceTurn: Happens almost ''instantly''. He goes from minor "antagonist" (word used lightly here) out to steal Reigen's assignment to a friendly rival of Reigen after Mob saves both of them from a Yokai.
* HiddenDepths: When he was in high school, he was part of the sumo wrestling team but later joined the table top tennis club.
* IconicItem: His over-sized beaded necklace.
* NotSoPhonyPsychic: While Reigen initially assumes he's as much of a fraud as himself, it turns out he does have some ability in exorcism.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Quite skilled at his job, reasonably knowledgeable about magical phenomena, some nice magical items, is generally competent in a crisis... and his psychic abilities aren't even as strong as most of the more mundane psychics, let alone people like Mob.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Compared to the vengeful [[EvilOldFolks Kirin]] and the arrogant [[KnowNothingKnowItAll Dozen]], Banshomaru stands out as the only amicable member of the Sun Psychic Union.

->''I'd like to see Reigen's ability. Even if I try hard, it's not spectacular at all. We should let the whole nation witness how the next generation of psychics does it.''

A decrepit old man and the most senior psychic in the business, both literally and figuratively. He has formed the Sun Psychic Union as a way of both maximizing profits and maximizing his control over the business. Something of a TV star, he is one of the better-known psychics in the business. His actual abilities are unknown, though he appeared to display an unusual aura while performing an exorcism, hinting he may be an Esper.
----
* DisproportionateRetribution: He had Reigen exposed as a fraud for getting kick in the stomach by him.
* EvilOldFolks: He shames and humiliates anyone who dares to go freelance, and even tried to do so to Reigen even though his only interaction with Reigen was the latter saving his life.
* {{Gonk}}: His pudgy face is permanently stuck in a bizarre, wide-eyed grimace that looks something like the "Y U NO" meme. He actually manages to unsettle Mob.
* JerkAss: He will try to ruin the lives of any psychics who try to go freelance, despite the fact they usually pose no threat to him.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: He got a good look at Reigen's face during the Minori Asagiri exorcism when Reigen saved his life. His repayment was to try to ruin Reigen's life for going freelance (and for kicking him to drive Mogami out of him).
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He brings to mind [[GravityMaster Ishiguro]] given how they're both short, old psychic men who dress in black and have self-absorbed personalities.

----
* DirtyCoward: After being cursed during an exorcism mission, he initially planned to pass the curse onto Reigen. But to his relief, he ends up passing it to [[spoiler: Tome]] and doesn't feel much regret over it.
* EvilCounterpart: To Reigen. He's a suit wearing psychic with a fancy title, has his own apprentice and tends to use exaggerated expressions. (He even looks like Reigen with black hair). The differences are that he doesn't have Reigen's good heart and is willing to brush off his apprentice for the sake of business matters.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Despite claiming to be a powerful psychic, he instantly falls for Reigen's lies about spiritual power levels.
* PowerfulAndHelpless: He proclaims to be a high ranking psychic with connections to influential figures and celebrities. [[spoiler: Neither his powers or connections are able to help him when he finds himself cursed]].

[[folder:??? (Spoilers)]]
!!Mob's ??? Form
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mob_7.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:???%]]

Each of Mob's explosions have him still in control, at least somewhat: ??? is an exception to this rule. This form activates when Mob goes unconscious in moments of extreme danger, causing his powers to automatically activate themselves in an attempt to protect Mob's body. Immensely powerful but completely out of control, ??? is a DangerousForbiddenTechnique that allows Mob to turn any fight into a CurbStompBattle at a major cost- ??? will attack everyone and ''anyone'' it deems as a threat to Mob's well-being with extreme prejudice, often going against Mob's wishes for a peaceful resolution to fights.

The "???" arc reveals that it's possibly a SplitPersonality that acts out Mob's best wishes the only way it knows how- through extreme violence. Many characters also theorize it may, in fact, be an entity entirely separate from Mob himself, which is seemingly confirmed when it takes control of Mob during Chapter 100 and identifies itself as a separate identity -- that of the "original" Shigeo Kageyama.
----
* ArcVillain: It takes this role during the titular "???" arc.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: In the ??? arc, [[spoiler:Ritsu]] is the only character able to confront ???% and come out unscathed. Why? [[spoiler:Because Ritsu acknowledged ???% as Shigeo.]]
* CainAndAbel: ???% doesn't trust even Ritsu, and accidentally injuring him was what caused Mob to pretty much give up their powers. ???% seems to think little of it, instead focusing on how their relationship with Tsubomi changed how Mob viewed their power.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: A unique example insofar as that Mob must be unconscious in order for it to activate. He also hates using it, and seems to be traumatized by the fact that he accidentally used it on Ritsu, hurting him.
* EnemyWithin: Mob used to be much livelier as a child until his accident convinced him to suppress his emotions and powers. All of that became ???%, and he's tired of being locked up.
* FinalBoss: He's the last, and most dangerous, antagonist of the overall storyline.
* HeroicSafeMode: Only activates when Mob is out of commission, and acts to protect his body without regard for the harm or destruction it causes.
* IJustWantToBeFree: ???% wants to let his power run wild even if it wrecks the world and hopes Tsubomi can still treat him as a normal person despite that.
* InsistentTerminology: He refuses to call Mob and Reigen by name. He insists ''he's'' the real Shigeo, and "Mob" is nothing more than an alter ego.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Flat-out ''the'' strongest esper in the world by an incredible margin. Unrestrained, he demolishes the city as a side effect of simply walking through it.
* SilentAntagonist: It's a bit surprising to see ???% [[SuddenlyVoiced talking]] when he finally takes over Mob's body completely, but there was a previous instance -- when Dimple tries to assure Mob that the corpses of his family he found are constructs, a barely in control Mob (his Explosion Counter is depicted as a smudge) growls that he's lying. The anime makes it explicit that this is ???% speaking with a much rougher and hateful tone of voice.
* SplitPersonality: It's essentially Mob's body on autopilot, having none of the mercy of NiceGuy natures of the normal Mob. Chapter 100 reveals that it is a manifestation of Mob's deepest desires that acts as the source of his power. He greatly resents Mob for shunning his own powers despite them saving him time and time again and Reigen for exploiting them.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Easily the strongest of the Explosions, large in part due to its complete lack of mercy or restraint.
* VillainHasAPoint:
** ???% is tired of Mob treating his powers like a taboo even though more often than not they were the only way to save themselves and others from harm.
** He also argues that Mob attempting to reject his own powers when Tsubomi wouldn't pay attention to him was a mistake because all her attitude meant was that she could treat him as a normal person when no one else would.
* WalkingSpoiler: Very little about it is revealed up until Chapter 100, where it becomes the ArcVillain and terrorizes
[[Characters/MobPsycho100SeasoningCity Seasoning City, requiring the help of everyone, psychic or not, to take it down.
City]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Its only desire is to protect himself, but it will go to any lengths to make this happen. Taken UpToEleven in Chapter 100, where it nearly destroys Seasoning City in an attempt to ''make sure that Mob's, or rather, his own LoveConfession goes smoothly''.

Since the being was created by urban legend and sustained through the fear of those who believe in it, people well acquainted with the myth (such as Shinra and Reigen) were unable to exorcise it properly. Mob, having been socially isolated for many years, had no such fear in his heart and was able to destroy it cleanly.
* AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength: After his first ???% explosion, Mob stopped viewing his powers as a neat trick that lost its novelty and started seeing them as outright monstrous.
* AlternateCharacterReading: The characters in his given name, Shigeo, can also be read as "Mobu", hence his nickname.
* AmbiguousDisorder: While the cause and exact nature of Mob's issues is hard to pin down (attributable to anything from autism to PTSD), it's made explicit that Mob has social and emotional problems that go far beyond normal teenage awkwardness.
* AnimeHair: Gets wild spiky hair at 100% power. Somewhat justified in that it seems to be his own power aura lifting his hair.
* AngelFaceDemonFace: 100% Mob tends to look [[https://i.imgur.com/3OxZJnv.png a lot cuter and less deranged]] when set off by more positive, productive emotions. Dimple's so thrown off by the difference that he can't even recognize Mob during the first "good" explosion he witnesses.
* AngstNuke: Thanks to to volatile powers, his emotional explosions are often very literal.
* ApologeticAttacker: While he does grow out of his SuicidalPacifism, he never feels good about using them on people and often apologizes for resorting to force... Unless you hurt Ritsu, in which case you [[BigBrotherInstinct brought it down on yourself]].
* AstralProjection: Does this to combat Mogami.
* TheBabyOfTheBunch: The Body Improvement can be very protective of their littlest member.
* BadassAdorable: Mob's a cute walking bowl, but he's also disturbingly powerful.
* BeadyEyedLoser: His irises are drawn much smaller and duller than his younger brother's to mark him as the plain, awkward one of the two. He usually loses this during his [[SuperMode 100% explosions]], instead sporting sharp, red TsurimeEyes.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's about as humble and gentle as anyone can hope to be right up until he hits the end of his CatastrophicCountdown.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Seriously, don't hurt Ritsu in his presence. [[spoiler:Seeing Ritsu get beat up by a member of Claw caused Mob to openly show rage, before his counter reached full capacity; not to mention that scene marks the fastest his counter had gone up.]]
* BigGood: The strongest force for good in the series so far, as his influence has made many other characters kinder and more humble. [[spoiler: After their fight in the Divine Tree, Dimple flat out tells Mob that the strength of his powers, combined with his careful and earnest personality, could make Mob a true leader and unifying force for the people of Spice City, compared to Dimple's plays at godhood through brainwashing.]]
* BookDumb: Mob is a bit annoyed that none of that unfathomable psychic talent he was born with seems to have any positive impact on his GPA.
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Since he was unable to impress the girl he likes with his powers, he began to see they are not necessary in daily life. So he enters the Body Improvement Club to become stronger without depending on them.
* BrokenAce: He can effortlessly wipe extremely powerful psychics off the face of the earth, but he doesn't really enjoy any of that power, and would happily trade it for his brother's social and academic skill. He constantly represses his emotions out of fear of causing a catastrophe, and may be suffering from depression.
* CatastrophicCountdown: When Mob experiences spikes in his emotions, building up towards his bursts of power. Though, depending on the emotion he feels at the moment, it's not always catastrophic.
* CharacterDevelopment: Gradually becomes more confident, sociable and less dependent on Reigen. This has a lot to do with his training in the Body Improvement Club, where he goes from almost the very bottom to the upper half in his second year. That, and a lot of good teaching from Reigen.
* {{Chuunibyou}}: Inverted; he legitimately has incredible strong PsychicPowers, but he doesn't see them as a big deal, both because of his desire to improve in more mundane areas of life (like physical fitness and social interactions) and because he's internalized the philosophy that having powers doesn't automatically make him better or more special than everyone else.
* ClassicalAntiHero: Self-doubting, emotionally fragile, and hates having to fight and hurt people, despite the world's best attempts to drag him into fighting evil.
* CoolLoser: He's initially defined by his lackluster attributes in everything that isn't related to spirits and psychic power, but he eventually gains a good number of friends in the forms of both the Telepathy and Body Improvement Clubs, respect from the delinquent gang at Salt Mid as their Urabanchou "White T Poison," and starts to gradually grow out of the "loser" part of the trope as he gains more confidence in himself.
* CreepyChild: While he is one of the nicest kids you'll ever meet, when his power lashes out, he turns into a horrifying force of nature in the body of a child. It doesn't help that even when he is genuinely enraged, he doesn't entirely lose his quiet and polite demeanor, which leads to cold and hate-filled TranquilFury far more eerie and disquieting than any screaming fit of rage would be.
-->(to Koyama, in the middle of a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown): ''"Hey, mister [[BigBrotherInstinct who did terrible things to us...]] just so you know, this is all your fault."''
* CurbStompBattle: If he has enough power stored and isn't holding back, he can bring down anyone in a few moves. [[spoiler:The only reason why he wasn't able to defeat Koyama at first was because he was holding back, and because Koyama had knock-out spray. When they meet again, he doesn't hold back and easily hands Koyama an instant ass-kicking]]. Averted with later opponents, who seriously put up a fight and even force [[spoiler:Mob to use several 100% modes to keep up.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Mob gets rather dangerous at 100% emotion. Before that, he's taken quite a few beatdowns, but still refused to give up.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: [[spoiler:The ??? arc ends with Mob finally confessing his feelings to Tsubomi, and being soundly rejected by her in response.]]
* DoesNotLikeSpam: His least favorite foods are cilantro, shiokara, and locusts.
* DullSurprise: Unless he's at 100%, his facial expressions tend towards this. He's also stated to have limited emotions in everyday life.
* EmotionalPowers: The more stressed Mob becomes, the closer his explosion counter gets towards 100%. Strong enough emotions can drive it '''''far''''' beyond that, to the point that unlike his unconscious "???%" mode, his power isn't even ''knowably'' unknowable, with the percentage simply expressed as a smudge.
* EmotionBomb: He's capable of projecting his memories, feelings, and perspective into others. However, he doesn't use this as a weapon, but rather as way to communicate his feelings as clearly as possible, since he's not great at expressing himself in the usual ways.
* EmotionlessBoy: Has grown used to being like this as a way to resist his powers.
* EmotionSuppression: The original cause of how he came to be as deadpan and emotionally flat as he is, shackling his feelings after Ritsu got caught in the blast zone of a ???% emergence.
* TheEmpath: He's able to feel the emotional content of the spiritual energy he absorbs (which opponents are often freely throwing at him during their assaults). Of course, since his ''regular'' social and mood-reading skills are rather subpar, this often leads to him [[InnocentlyInsensitive cluelessly commenting on their deepest insecurities mid battle]].
* EnergyAbsorption: Drains energy from Teru during his ???% state at Black Vinegar Middle School. [[spoiler:By the time he faces off against Touichirou of Claw, he seems to have gained a better grasp on this power even at an emotional state below 100%.]]
* EveryonesBabyBrother: The Body Improvement Club absolutely refuses to use their strength for violence... Unless it's for Mob, as Onigawara is happy to weaponize against Black Vinegar Middle School.
* ExtremeDoormat: He starts off as one, so unused to making his own decisions that Tokugawa asking, "Don't you have ''anything'' you want to do?" [[ArmorPiercingQuestion gives him an existential crisis.]]
* TheFettered: Thanks to some choice words Reigen gave him when he was younger, he's been able to hold back on his psychic abilities responsibly and reasonably maturely. It comes around to seeing his powers as "knives"-- he shouldn't be pointing them at anybody for no good reason. This also extends to his emotional repression, as if he ever truly lets go or has no limiter, he can become dangerous to everyone around him.
* AGodIAmNot: Reigen instilled in him the philosophy that being an esper doesn't make him better than other people, and as a result Mob tends to deflect all praise that could be put towards his psychic powers. For the most part, the world respects his wishes, with the Telepathy and Body Improvement Clubs supporting his desires to increase his physical abilities, and Ichi recognizing that she probably shouldn't reveal his existence to the Psycho Helmet Cult that began worshiping him after he defeated Dimple.
* GreenThumb: Learns to control plant life when facing off against the Wiggly Figure. [[spoiler:After facing off against the leader of Claw, this power ultimately results in the creation of the Divine Tree, a ginormous head of Broccoli that grows in the middle of Seasoning City.]]
* TheHeart: Since Reigen or Teru are usually more suited to leading, Mob tends to be this until he needs to step up to the plate, with his kindness and innocence keeping everyone else on the straight and narrow.
* TheHero: While Reigen often takes a leadership role due to being... ''relatively'' more mature, Mob himself is pretty much always at the forefront of the action, even when he'd really rather not be.
* HeroicWillpower: Manages to resist [[spoiler:Mogami's attempts at corrupting him]] for what he perceives as ''half a year''.
* HumanoidAbomination: Under the effects of ???% mode, Mob effectively becomes this with the full release of his raw psychic power. [[spoiler:This idea is even further cemented with the fact that ???% has a separate consciousness of its own that seems to be dedicated to Mob's well being and happiness, since its appearances have been either protecting Mob after being knocked out or, as in Ch 100.1, picking up Mob's bouquet of flowers and ensuring that he makes it to his meeting with Tsubomi, life-threatening injury be damned.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Played with. Unlike most characters of this type, he does not necessarily resent his powers per se (at least not usually), and will openly use them to exorcise evil spirits and take down those who seek to harm innocents. However, he does not exactly embrace them either, not really seeing the big deal in being a psychic, since it doesn't really help him improve his personal life. Above all, he doesn't want to have his powers be his sole defining feature, and wants to become good at normal everyday life things, which he perceives as being more valuable than overwhelming psychic abilities.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Aside from wanting to be [[IJustWantToBeNormal normal]], Mob's biggest goal in life is to be able to connect with other people.
* IllBoy: He has chronic anemia, which often results in fainting from overexertion. [[spoiler:As a result, he spends first half of the World Domination arc passed out from physical and mental exhaustion thanks to both the school marathon and Shou's attempted BatmanGambit.]]
* InstantExpert: Able to learn plant control and astral projection with little difficulty.
* KidHero: A 14 year old boy, and one of the world's most powerful espers.
* KubrickStare: Mob's default expression. Becomes a DeathGlare when he actually means it.
* LoserProtagonist: Begins as an insecure, all-but-friendless [[TheDitherer ditherer]] with no remarkable talents beyond his psychic powers (which he doesn't find useful in most contexts anyways).
* MagneticHero: Despite his lack of social skills, he's managed to collect a large amount of friends and allies through his earnestness and kindness, from schoolmates like the Telepathy Club, Body Improvement Club, and Salt Mid's delinquent gang; to former enemies like Dimple, Teru, and the 7th Branch Scar Members of Claw. [[spoiler:It's even noted that this quality may have helped the Body Improvement Club recruit more members after Mob becomes their Assistant Director, especially since the new recruits aren't already muscular like the Body Improvement Club was when Mob first joined.]]
* MartialPacifist: Hates fighting other humans, and will avoid it when at all possible, but push him too far or exhaust his other options, and he will show just how powerful of an esper he is.
* MeaningfulName: His nickname, "Mob" (モブ), is derived from "Mob Character," i.e. a background character or NPC. Shigeo begins the story with little sense of presence, suppressing his emotions and trying to live like a common person despite everyone trying to take advantage of him. It also doubles as an AlternateCharacterReading, as his given name can be read as "Mobu".
* MuscleAngst: Muscle is his go-to example for things he'd like to have rather than psychic powers, and he joins the Body Improvement Club under the rather naive belief that [[WomenPreferStrongMen it might get Tsubomi interested in him]].
* MusclesAreMeaningful: Rather than over-rely on his psychic power, Mob does his best to work out his body with the Body Improvement Club. In his second-year marathon, he manages to place in the top half of 180 students, and that's when he had an injured leg. [[spoiler:By the end of the Manga, he's gotten strong enough to climb a telephone pole without the use of his powers... though getting down from it with just his muscles is another story.]]
* MutualEnvy: He wishes he were [[IJustWantToBeNormal more normal]] like his brother Ritsu, unaware that Ritsu is secretly resentful and envious of him for having psychic abilities.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** Mob and Ritsu were once mugged by highschoolers who made him unconscious by pushing him into a wall. When Mob woke up, all of them, including Ritsu, were heavily injured. This is what caused him to reject his power and meet Reigen for guidance.
** He has a small one after seeing Ritsu [[spoiler:beat up a large group of delinquents with his psychic powers unprovoked, making him realize he had been unconsciously ignoring his brother's insecurities all this time until the issue boiled over.]]
* NiceGuy: Very kind and forgiving. Upon defeating former bad guys such as Dimple and Teruki, Mob even asks Reigen if it was wrong to just come and ruin their lives like that. At a different point, he even [[BerserkerTears sheds tears]] due to having to hurt a guy ''who is out to kill him''.
* NightmareFace: His expression when he encountered [[spoiler:what appeared to be the burning corpses of his family]] after [[spoiler:Claw invaded his house]] is a clear and VERY disturbing [[https://i.redd.it/50qbsxqk2ri21.jpg example]].
* TheNondescript: Mob is noted to look much like a random extra in a crowd shot (aka a [[MeaningfulName "mob" character]]).
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: While regular Mob is drawn in the same simple, cartoony fashion as everyone else, Studio BONES draws [[SuperMode 100% Mob]] more angularly and with more detail to resemble a character from a more traditional shounen battle manga. The most dramatic case is 100% Courage Mob, which is accompanied by an ArtShift so drastic that even the characters themselves are wondering who this new kid is.
-->'''Mogami:''' You're not the same boy as before. Who are you?
-->'''Dimple:''' Don't you get it? This is the true form of Shigeo Kageyama he only reveals when he's truly piss--Wait, actually, yeah. Who ''are'' you?
* NoSenseOfHumor: Not for a lack of trying. Not even intentionally letting Dimple's laugh-inducing mind control through his barrier had any effect on him. [[spoiler:He finally laughs in Ch 101 after accidentally sending Reigen's birthday cake flying into his face with his powers.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Mob realistically resembles a 14 year old, but is often surrounded by people who look much older than their age, making him seem young in comparison.
* OneManArmy: Is able to trounce groups of baddies with his psychic powers alone.
* OnlyFriend: To Reigen, though Reigen only realizes this during their brief separation. [[spoiler: This gets subverted when Reigen forms new friendships with Serizawa, Dimple and Tome]].
* PartTimeHero: Quite literally, though spirits are not enough of an immediate or significant danger to cause him any SamaritanSyndrome.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: When Mob's Psychic powers flare up, there might be some collateral battle damage, but when ???% shows up, it gets far worse. [[spoiler:Ch 100.2 shows that ???% walking through Salt City causes phenomenon being mistaken for large-scale windstorms and earthquakes, to the point that an evacuation order comes into effect, not to mention leaving a visible trail of dug-up Earth where he walks.]]
* PopCultureIsolation: InUniverse, he's stated to be completely out of the loop when it comes to pop culture, as well as other trends like urban legends. This ends up being a major advantage when he's facing the Kuchisake-Onna/the Dragger, who gets her power from [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve people's knowledge and fear of her]]; because he isn't up to date on such things and doesn't know anything about her, he has no reason to be afraid of her.
* PowerIncontinence: While unconscious, Mob's power level becomes incomprehensible. He also drives his powers towards infinity in a blind rage once he walks up to what looks like the [[spoiler:corpses of his family]], but Dimple manages to convince him they're fake and calms him down.
* PowerStrainBlackout: Overusing his powers can take a toll on his already weak constitution, and his emotional explosions are often followed up by fainting spells, temporary paralysis, or a compromised immune system.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: Deconstructed. The line he says just before obliterating Dimple, while badass, is more of a TearJerker because you can just tell that Mob is actually disgusted with himself and the stuff he can do when he goes out of control.
-->''"I'm... terrible."''
* PsychicPowers: He's very proficient on [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] even when not trying, can make psychic barriers and also [[PowerCopying imitates any abilities]] he sees his opponents perform.
* PsychoactivePowers: His power is shaped by his mindset and overall worldview, and growing out of his EmotionSuppression and self-fear results in more positive, constructive "explosions" such as [[SuperEmpowering 100% Gratitude]].
* RageAgainstTheMentor: Mob eventually has a falling out with Reigen when working with him puts a strain on his social life. They reconcile soon after.
* RedBaron: The former LOL cult members call him "Psycho Helmet" and the students at Salt Mid and in other delinquent gangs around the district know him as "White T Poison". [[spoiler:Dimple later takes the Psycho Helmet identity for himself when he takes over the cult.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In the anime, Mob's natural eye color as shown in a closeup while being [[spoiler:choked by Teruki]] is a deep reddish-brown. When he hits some of his explosions, like 100% Rage or 100% Hostility, they start glowing a vibrant and menacing red.
* RelativeButton: Anyone who [[BigBrotherInstinct harms Ritsu]] is making a grave mistake if Mob knows about it. [[spoiler:To put that into perspective, Mob always had a gradual build up to his 100% emotional outburst. The arc prior, it took Teruki almost strangling him to death to bring out his powers. By comparison, Mob goes from 0-100% in the matter of seconds after seeing Koyama beat up Ritsu.]]
* TheRuntAtTheEnd: He's by far the scrawniest, frailest member of the Body Improvement Club, and he's often shown lagging far behind them on their daily runs.
* SecretlySelfish: Like most of his emotions, Mob tends to suppress his more selfish and uncharitable impulses. [[spoiler:So much so that said impulses became their own entity in the form of ???%, who considers Mob to be fabricated persona that has outlived its usefulness.]]
* SelectiveObliviousness: He has a huge blind spot in regards to Reigen's obvious PhonyPsychic act, even when other characters spell it out to him. [[spoiler:The final arc reveals that he's subconsciously picked up on it a while ago, but is too scared of the implications that his most formative relationship is a complete lie to actually process it.]]
* SexierAlterEgo: [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/mob-psycho-100/images/2/25/Courage.gif/ 100% Courage]], which character design notes jokingly refer to as Mob's "ikemen" form.
* SociallyAwkwardHero: At home and in school he is usually reserved and a bit awkward, even anxious at times, during social interactions. To whit, his "speech" when coaxed into running for Student Council President was an unprecedented 5 minutes of silence.
* SquishyWizard: While unrivaled in pure psychic ability, he's shown to be incredibly out of shape. His time as the newest member of the Body Improvement Club is mostly comprised of him passing out during their morning jogs. [[SubvertedTrope However]], this is only an issue in his everyday life - in combat, Mob is perfectly capable of raising psychic barriers stronger than steel and infusing his body with psychic energy to make himself much stronger. In the latter half of the series, he's [[CharacterDevelopment grown out of the trope entirely]] - while he's pretty far from matching the other members of the Body Improvement Club, his strength and stamina are hinted to be above average at least. In an aversion of HardWorkHardlyWorks, solely psychic-enhanced muscles turn out to be inferior to a mix of psychic power enhancement '''and''' conventional training, which should make Mob a better combatant as well.
* StockShonenHero: Mob is an inversion - instead of being HotBlooded and cheerful, he's emotionally repressed and usually a bit downbeat. Instead of spiky hair all the time that gets spikier the more power he uses, his hair is only spiky when his powers flare up and is usually styled into a rounded bowl cut. Instead of having lots of confidence and lots of friends, he starts the story with very little self-confidence and relies on what few friends he has to keep it from collapsing entirely.
* TheStoic: Mob is usually expressionless by default, and doesn't have much of an sense of humor. After his CharacterDevelopment however, he gets better at interacting with others and smiles more often.
* SuccessfulSiblingSyndrome: While Mob doesn't resent Ritsu for his effortless success at school, being the under-performing brother of Salt Middle School's star student does not do favors for his self-esteem.
* SuddenEyeColor: His eye color (dark red) only becomes apparent when undergoing an explosion.
* SuicidalPacifism: Early on. Knowing how dangerous his powers are, Mob refuses to use it on other humans. [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Exorcising ghosts is fine, though, because it benefits Reigen]]. It takes a while for him to question whether or not that is right.
* SuperEmpowering: 100% Gratitude. [[spoiler:By the time he faces off against the leader of Claw, he's learned how to do this at below 100%.]]
* SuperMode: 100%. Here, his powers become much stronger due to the force of his emotions, allowing him to keep up with exceptionally powerful espers.
* SupernaturalFloatingHair: His most distinctive characteristic when hitting 100%.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: ???%. It comes out when Mob is unconscious, and not only seems to be almost a separate entity from Mob, but is also far more destructive, although it doesn't seem actively malicious, just less restrained in its power use than Mob. [[spoiler:To whit, ???% is so focused on getting to Mob's meeting with Tsubomi that it completely ignores the fact that its presence is pretty much ''destroying Salt City''.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: He's hit the absolute jackpot as far as psychic powers go. Too bad he's more interested in being a SliceOfLife protagonist than a shounen action here.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His favorite food is takoyaki and his favorite drink is milk.
* TranquilFury: Even at 100% Rage or 100% Animosity, the only outward sign he's angry is a DeathGlare. That, and the way property damage starts to accumulate around him.
* UnconsciousObjector: Mob is able to keep fighting when knocked out. His power level when he's unconscious? '''"[[ReadingsAreOffTheScale ???%]]"'''. He's terrified of what could happen when he loses control like that. When [[spoiler:Mogami destroys Mob's body... the ???% ''[[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/mob-psycho-100/images/a/a6/Unidentified.png/revision/latest?cb=20160812195426 still takes form]].'' If Mob's physical body is obliterated, then ???% gets unleashed fully. ???% has thoughts and a personality of its own, though seemingly in service to Mob, as it states that because Mob going to see Tsubomi is an important meeting for him, and because Mob has been knocked out from being hit by a car, ???%'s intervention has become necessary and it won't let anything get in its way, including picking up the bouquet Minegishi gave him.]]
* TheUnfavorite: While his parents do love him, he seems to be this compared to his much more classically gifted younger brother, particularly in the eyes of his mother. As a result, Mob envies Ritsu for being a normal kid, which blinded him to Ritsu's resentment for having the incredible psychic powers he craves.
* UnwantedFalseFaith: Former members of the LOL cult decide to start a new cult worshiping him, which he has no desire to engage with despite Mezato's pestering.
* UnskilledButStrong: Mob doesn't have a lot of refined techniques the way most elite Claw members do, but his power advantage is so overwhelming that it rarely matters.
* UsedToBeMoreSocial: He was a lot more expressive and social as a small child. Then the accident with ???% happened, leading him to emotionally shut down and isolate himself.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: While not actually parent and child and he does have actual parents who don't fit this trope, his dynamic with Reigen resembles this.
* WarriorTherapist: Many of the psychics Mob fights end up being on the receiving end of having their insecurities thrown in their faces as Mob destroys them.
* WeirdnessMagnet: It is sort of justified when it comes to evil spirits; after all, his part-time job involves exorcising them, and while some of them end up being fakes, some are bound to be real.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: In the anime, his eyes are drawn in a shiny {{bishonen}} fashion during 100% Courage.
* WhenHeSmiles: He smiles frequently (and adorably) enough, but it's an absolute joy to see him [[spoiler: laughing brightly]] in Ch 101.
* WouldntHitAGirl: In his fight against Tsuchiya at Scar HQ, he reveals that this is one of the morals that Reigen taught him. It takes her pointing out that [[WouldHurtAChild she's an adult woman fighting a middle school boy]] to get him to actually retaliate.

to:

* AchievementsInIgnorance: His defeat AgentMulder: She's the only one in the Telepathy Club who actually believes in telepathy and using it to contact extraterrestrials, while the other members are just there to slack off.
* AscendedExtra: She assumes the role
of the Kuchisake-Onna (or Dragger main character in ''Reigen'', since she's [[spoiler:an unofficial employee of Spirits and Such]] by that time.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: In ''Reigen,'' she's the first ONE protagonist not to have any sort of special abilities, either earned or naturally-gained. Also unlike Mob, instead of being more interested in living a normal life and being more popular, but sort of happening into unusual situations, Tome wants to become more deeply entrenched
in the anime). Since supernatural and occult of the world while being was created by urban legend and sustained through the fear of those who believe in it, people well acquainted with the myth (such as Shinra and Reigen) were unable to exorcise it properly. Mob, having been socially isolated for many years, had no such fear in his heart and was able to destroy it cleanly.
* AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength: After his first ???% explosion, Mob stopped viewing his powers as a neat trick that lost its novelty and started seeing them as outright monstrous.
* AlternateCharacterReading: The characters in his given name, Shigeo, can also be read as "Mobu", hence his nickname.
* AmbiguousDisorder: While the cause and exact nature of Mob's issues is hard to pin down (attributable to anything
pushed away from autism to PTSD), it's made explicit that Mob has social it by others, and emotional problems that go far beyond normal teenage awkwardness.
doesn't care about more mundane goings-on in life.
* AnimeHair: Gets wild spiky hair DamselInDistress: She ends up in at 100% power. Somewhat least three perilous situations in the ''Reigen'' spinoff. It's justified in the sense that it seems to be his own power aura lifting his hair.
* AngelFaceDemonFace: 100% Mob tends to look [[https://i.imgur.com/3OxZJnv.png a lot cuter
each of them were supernatural themed and less deranged]] Tome has no powers or past experiences to rescue herself.
* {{Determinator}}: Will overcome any kind of hurdles to keep the club afloat, even
when set off by more positive, productive emotions. Dimple's so thrown off by the difference other club members point out that he can't even recognize Mob during the first "good" explosion he witnesses.
* AngstNuke: Thanks to to volatile powers, his emotional explosions are often very literal.
* ApologeticAttacker: While he does grow out of his SuicidalPacifism, he never feels good about using them on people and often apologizes for resorting to force... Unless you hurt Ritsu, in which case you [[BigBrotherInstinct brought it down on yourself]].
* AstralProjection: Does this to combat Mogami.
* TheBabyOfTheBunch: The Body Improvement can be very protective of their littlest member.
* BadassAdorable: Mob's a cute walking bowl, but he's also disturbingly powerful.
* BeadyEyedLoser: His irises are drawn much smaller and duller than his younger brother's to mark him as the plain, awkward one of the two. He usually loses this during his [[SuperMode 100% explosions]], instead sporting sharp, red TsurimeEyes.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's about as humble and gentle as anyone can hope to be right up until he hits the end of his CatastrophicCountdown.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Seriously,
they really don't hurt Ritsu in his presence. [[spoiler:Seeing Ritsu get beat up by a member do anything of Claw caused Mob substance.
-->''President... we haven't done anything so far.''
** [[spoiler:She also hounds Reigen for a job at Spirits and Such, refusing
to openly show rage, before his counter reached full capacity; not to mention that scene marks the fastest his counter had gone up.take "no" for an answer.]]
* BigGood: The strongest force for good in the series GoalInLife: She wants to figure out telepathy so far, as his influence has made many she can use it to communicate with aliens and other characters kinder extraterrestrial lifeforms.
* TheLadette: She's loud, crass, obnoxious,
and more humble. [[spoiler: After their fight in loves video games (and aliens). She also seems to get along better with boys than with girls.
* LargeHam: She has a tendency to overreact and showcase her eccentric side when interacting with people.
* ManipulativeBastard: Can be this at times - she's particularly fond of CrocodileTears as a means to an end.
* PluckyOfficeGirl: [[spoiler:By Chapter 101, she's been
the Divine Tree, Dimple flat out tells Mob secretary at Spirits & Such for a few months, and accidentally causes Reigen to drop his birthday cake in an attempt to get a raise. ''Reigen'' reveals that the strength of his powers, combined with his careful she isn't really paid at all, meanwhile, and earnest personality, could make Mob a true leader and unifying force for the people in fact just sort of Spice City, compared to Dimple's plays at godhood through brainwashing.decided she works there.]]
* BookDumb: Mob is a bit annoyed that none of that unfathomable psychic talent he was born with seems to have any positive impact on his GPA.
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Since he was unable to impress
TheSmurfettePrinciple: She's the girl he likes with his powers, he began to see they are not necessary in daily life. So he enters the Body Improvement Club to become stronger without depending on them.
* BrokenAce: He can effortlessly wipe extremely powerful psychics off the face of the earth, but he doesn't really enjoy any of that power, and would happily trade it for his brother's social and academic skill. He constantly represses his emotions out of fear of causing a catastrophe, and may be suffering from depression.
* CatastrophicCountdown: When Mob experiences spikes in his emotions, building up towards his bursts of power. Though, depending on the emotion he feels at the moment, it's not always catastrophic.
* CharacterDevelopment: Gradually becomes more confident, sociable and less dependent on Reigen. This has a lot to do with his training in the Body Improvement Club, where he goes from almost the very bottom to the upper half in his second year. That, and a lot of good teaching from Reigen.
* {{Chuunibyou}}: Inverted; he legitimately has incredible strong PsychicPowers, but he doesn't see them as a big deal, both because of his desire to improve in more mundane areas of life (like physical fitness and social interactions) and because he's internalized the philosophy that having powers doesn't automatically make him better or more special than everyone else.
* ClassicalAntiHero: Self-doubting, emotionally fragile, and hates having to fight and hurt people, despite the world's best attempts to drag him into fighting evil.
* CoolLoser: He's initially defined by his lackluster attributes in everything that isn't related to spirits and psychic power, but he eventually gains a good number of friends in the forms of both the Telepathy and Body Improvement Clubs, respect from the delinquent gang at Salt Mid as their Urabanchou "White T Poison," and starts to gradually grow out of the "loser" part of the trope as he gains more confidence in himself.
* CreepyChild: While he is one of the nicest kids you'll ever meet, when his power lashes out, he turns into a horrifying force of nature in the body of a child. It doesn't help that even when he is genuinely enraged, he doesn't entirely lose his quiet and polite demeanor, which leads to cold and hate-filled TranquilFury far more eerie and disquieting than any screaming fit of rage would be.
-->(to Koyama, in the middle of a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown): ''"Hey, mister [[BigBrotherInstinct who did terrible things to us...]] just so you know, this is all your fault."''
* CurbStompBattle: If he has enough power stored and isn't holding back, he can bring down anyone in a few moves. [[spoiler:The
only reason why he wasn't able to defeat Koyama at first was because he was holding back, and because Koyama had knock-out spray. When they meet again, he doesn't hold back and easily hands Koyama an instant ass-kicking]]. Averted with later opponents, who seriously put up a fight and even force [[spoiler:Mob to use several 100% modes to keep up.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Mob gets rather dangerous at 100% emotion. Before that, he's taken quite a few beatdowns, but still refused to give up.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: [[spoiler:The ??? arc ends with Mob finally confessing his feelings to Tsubomi, and being soundly rejected by her in response.]]
* DoesNotLikeSpam: His least favorite foods are cilantro, shiokara, and locusts.
* DullSurprise: Unless he's at 100%, his facial expressions tend towards this. He's also stated to have limited emotions in everyday life.
* EmotionalPowers: The more stressed Mob becomes, the closer his explosion counter gets towards 100%. Strong enough emotions can drive it '''''far''''' beyond that, to the point that unlike his unconscious "???%" mode, his power isn't even ''knowably'' unknowable, with the percentage simply expressed as a smudge.
* EmotionBomb: He's capable
female member of projecting his memories, feelings, and perspective into others. However, he doesn't use this as a weapon, but rather as way to communicate his feelings as clearly as possible, since he's not great at expressing himself in the usual ways.
* EmotionlessBoy: Has grown used to being like this as a way to resist his powers.
* EmotionSuppression: The original cause of how he came to be as deadpan and emotionally flat as he is, shackling his feelings after Ritsu got caught in the blast zone of a ???% emergence.
* TheEmpath: He's able to feel the emotional content of the spiritual energy he absorbs (which opponents are often freely throwing at him during their assaults). Of course, since his ''regular'' social and mood-reading skills are rather subpar, this often leads to him [[InnocentlyInsensitive cluelessly commenting on their deepest insecurities mid battle]].
* EnergyAbsorption: Drains energy from Teru during his ???% state at Black Vinegar Middle School. [[spoiler:By the time he faces off against Touichirou of Claw, he seems to have gained a better grasp on this power even at an emotional state below 100%.]]
* EveryonesBabyBrother: The Body Improvement Club absolutely refuses to use their strength for violence... Unless it's for Mob, as Onigawara is happy to weaponize against Black Vinegar Middle School.
* ExtremeDoormat: He starts off as one, so unused to making his own decisions that Tokugawa asking, "Don't you have ''anything'' you want to do?" [[ArmorPiercingQuestion gives him an existential crisis.]]
* TheFettered: Thanks to some choice words Reigen gave him when he was younger, he's been able to hold back on his psychic abilities responsibly and reasonably maturely. It comes around to seeing his powers as "knives"-- he shouldn't be pointing them at anybody for no good reason. This also extends to his emotional repression, as if he ever truly lets go or has no limiter, he can become dangerous to everyone around him.
* AGodIAmNot: Reigen instilled in him the philosophy that being an esper doesn't make him better than other people, and as a result Mob tends to deflect all praise that could be put towards his psychic powers. For the most part, the world respects his wishes, with the Telepathy and Body Improvement Clubs supporting his desires to increase his physical abilities, and Ichi recognizing that she probably shouldn't reveal his existence to the Psycho Helmet Cult that began worshiping him after he defeated Dimple.
* GreenThumb: Learns to control plant life when facing off against the Wiggly Figure. [[spoiler:After facing off against the leader of Claw, this power ultimately results in the creation of the Divine Tree, a ginormous head of Broccoli that grows in the middle of Seasoning City.]]
* TheHeart: Since Reigen or Teru are usually more suited to leading, Mob tends to be this until he needs to step up to the plate, with his kindness and innocence keeping everyone else on the straight and narrow.
* TheHero: While Reigen often takes a leadership role due to being... ''relatively'' more mature, Mob himself is pretty much always at the forefront of the action, even when he'd really rather not be.
* HeroicWillpower: Manages to resist [[spoiler:Mogami's attempts at corrupting him]] for what he perceives as ''half a year''.
* HumanoidAbomination: Under the effects of ???% mode, Mob effectively becomes this with the full release of his raw psychic power. [[spoiler:This idea is even further cemented with the fact that ???% has a separate consciousness of its own that seems to be dedicated to Mob's well being and happiness, since its appearances have been either protecting Mob after being knocked out or, as in Ch 100.1, picking up Mob's bouquet of flowers and ensuring that he makes it to his meeting with Tsubomi, life-threatening injury be damned.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Played with. Unlike most characters of this type, he does not necessarily resent his powers per se (at least not usually), and will openly use them to exorcise evil spirits and take down those who seek to harm innocents. However, he does not exactly embrace them either, not really seeing the big deal in being a psychic, since it doesn't really help him improve his personal life. Above all, he doesn't want to have his powers be his sole defining feature, and wants to become good at normal everyday life things, which he perceives as being more valuable than overwhelming psychic abilities.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Aside from wanting to be [[IJustWantToBeNormal normal]], Mob's biggest goal in life is to be able to connect with other people.
* IllBoy: He has chronic anemia, which often results in fainting from overexertion. [[spoiler:As a result, he spends first half of the World Domination arc passed out from physical and mental exhaustion thanks to both the school marathon and Shou's attempted BatmanGambit.]]
* InstantExpert: Able to learn plant control and astral projection with little difficulty.
* KidHero: A 14 year old boy, and one of the world's most powerful espers.
* KubrickStare: Mob's default expression. Becomes a DeathGlare when he actually means it.
* LoserProtagonist: Begins as an insecure, all-but-friendless [[TheDitherer ditherer]] with no remarkable talents beyond his psychic powers (which he doesn't find useful in most contexts anyways).
* MagneticHero: Despite his lack of social skills, he's managed to collect a large amount of friends and allies through his earnestness and kindness, from schoolmates like
the Telepathy Club, Body Improvement Club, and Salt Mid's delinquent gang; to former enemies like Dimple, Teru, and the 7th Branch Scar Members of Claw. [[spoiler:It's even noted that this quality may have helped the Body Improvement Club recruit more members after Mob becomes although she is their Assistant Director, especially since the new recruits aren't already muscular like the Body Improvement Club was when Mob first joined.]]
* MartialPacifist: Hates fighting other humans, and will avoid it when at all possible, but push him too far or exhaust his other options, and he will show just how powerful of an esper he is.
* MeaningfulName: His nickname, "Mob" (モブ), is derived from "Mob Character," i.e. a background character or NPC. Shigeo begins the story with little sense of presence, suppressing his emotions and trying to live like a common person despite everyone trying to take advantage of him. It also doubles as an AlternateCharacterReading, as his given name can be read as "Mobu".
* MuscleAngst: Muscle is his go-to example
leader which makes for things he'd like to have rather than psychic powers, and he joins the Body Improvement Club under the rather naive belief that [[WomenPreferStrongMen it might get Tsubomi interested in him]].
* MusclesAreMeaningful: Rather than over-rely on his psychic power, Mob does his best to work out his body with the Body Improvement Club. In his second-year marathon, he manages to place in the top half of 180 students, and that's when he had
an injured leg. [[spoiler:By the end unusual variation of the Manga, he's gotten strong enough to climb a telephone pole without the use of his powers... though getting down from it with just his muscles is another story.]]
* MutualEnvy: He wishes he were [[IJustWantToBeNormal more normal]] like his brother Ritsu, unaware that Ritsu is secretly resentful and envious of him for having psychic abilities.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** Mob and Ritsu were once mugged by highschoolers who made him unconscious by pushing him into a wall. When Mob woke up, all of them, including Ritsu, were heavily injured. This is what caused him to reject his power and meet Reigen for guidance.
** He has a small one after seeing Ritsu [[spoiler:beat up a large group of delinquents with his psychic powers unprovoked, making him realize he had been unconsciously ignoring his brother's insecurities all this time until the issue boiled over.]]
* NiceGuy: Very kind and forgiving. Upon defeating former bad guys such as Dimple and Teruki, Mob even asks Reigen if it was wrong to just come and ruin their lives like that. At a different point, he even [[BerserkerTears sheds tears]] due to having to hurt a guy ''who is out to kill him''.
* NightmareFace: His expression when he encountered [[spoiler:what appeared to be the burning corpses of his family]] after [[spoiler:Claw invaded his house]] is a clear and VERY disturbing [[https://i.redd.it/50qbsxqk2ri21.jpg example]].
* TheNondescript: Mob is noted to look much like a random extra in a crowd shot (aka a [[MeaningfulName "mob" character]]).
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: While regular Mob is drawn in the same simple, cartoony fashion as everyone else, Studio BONES draws [[SuperMode 100% Mob]] more angularly and with more detail to resemble a character from a more traditional shounen battle manga. The most dramatic case is 100% Courage Mob, which is accompanied by an ArtShift so drastic that even the characters themselves are wondering who this new kid is.
-->'''Mogami:''' You're not the same boy as before. Who are you?
-->'''Dimple:''' Don't you get it? This is the true form of Shigeo Kageyama he only reveals when he's truly piss--Wait, actually, yeah. Who ''are'' you?
* NoSenseOfHumor: Not for a lack of trying. Not even intentionally letting Dimple's laugh-inducing mind control through his barrier had any effect on him. [[spoiler:He finally laughs in Ch 101 after accidentally sending Reigen's birthday cake flying into his face with his powers.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Mob realistically resembles a 14 year old, but is often surrounded by people who look much older than their age, making him seem young in comparison.
trope.
* OneManArmy: Is able to trounce groups of baddies with his psychic powers alone.
* OnlyFriend: To Reigen, though Reigen only realizes this during their brief separation.
** In ''Reigen'', [[spoiler: This gets subverted when Reigen forms new friendships with Serizawa, Dimple she's the first, and Tome]].
* PartTimeHero: Quite literally, though spirits are not enough of an immediate or significant danger
only, girl to cause him any SamaritanSyndrome.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: When Mob's Psychic powers flare up, there might be some collateral battle damage, but when ???% shows up, it gets far worse. [[spoiler:Ch 100.2 shows that ???% walking through Salt City causes phenomenon being mistaken for large-scale windstorms and earthquakes, to
join the point that an evacuation order comes into effect, not to mention leaving a visible trail of dug-up Earth where he walks.]]
Spirits & Such team]].
* PopCultureIsolation: InUniverse, he's stated to be completely out SpotlightStealingSquad: Despite the name of the loop when it comes to pop culture, as well as other trends like urban legends. This ends up being a major advantage when he's facing spin-off, Tome is the Kuchisake-Onna/the Dragger, who gets her power from [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve people's knowledge and fear of her]]; because he isn't up to date on such things and doesn't know anything about her, he has no reason to be afraid of her.
* PowerIncontinence: While unconscious, Mob's power level becomes incomprehensible. He also drives his powers towards infinity in a blind rage once he walks up to what looks like the [[spoiler:corpses of his family]], but Dimple manages to convince him they're fake and calms him down.
* PowerStrainBlackout: Overusing his powers can take a toll on his already weak constitution, and his emotional explosions are often followed up by fainting spells, temporary paralysis, or a compromised immune system.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: Deconstructed. The line he says just before obliterating Dimple, while badass, is more of a TearJerker because you can just tell that Mob is actually disgusted with himself and the stuff he can do when he goes out of control.
-->''"I'm... terrible."''
* PsychicPowers: He's very proficient on [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] even when not trying, can make psychic barriers and also [[PowerCopying imitates any abilities]] he sees his opponents perform.
* PsychoactivePowers: His power is shaped by his mindset and overall worldview, and growing out of his EmotionSuppression and self-fear results in more positive, constructive "explosions" such as [[SuperEmpowering 100% Gratitude]].
* RageAgainstTheMentor: Mob eventually has a falling out with Reigen when working with him puts a strain on his social life. They reconcile soon after.
* RedBaron: The former LOL cult members call him "Psycho Helmet" and the students at Salt Mid and in other delinquent gangs around the district know him as "White T Poison". [[spoiler:Dimple later takes the Psycho Helmet identity for himself when he takes over the cult.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In the anime, Mob's natural eye color as shown in a closeup while being [[spoiler:choked by Teruki]] is a deep reddish-brown. When he hits some of his explosions, like 100% Rage or 100% Hostility, they start glowing a vibrant and menacing red.
* RelativeButton: Anyone who [[BigBrotherInstinct harms Ritsu]] is making a grave mistake if Mob knows about it. [[spoiler:To put that into perspective, Mob always had a gradual build up to his 100% emotional outburst. The arc prior, it took Teruki almost strangling him to death to bring out his powers. By comparison, Mob goes from 0-100% in the matter of seconds after seeing Koyama beat up Ritsu.]]
* TheRuntAtTheEnd: He's by far the scrawniest, frailest member of the Body Improvement Club, and he's often shown lagging far behind them on their daily runs.
* SecretlySelfish: Like most of his emotions, Mob tends to suppress his more selfish and uncharitable impulses. [[spoiler:So much so that said impulses became their own entity in the form of ???%, who considers Mob to be fabricated persona that has outlived its usefulness.]]
* SelectiveObliviousness: He has a huge blind spot in regards to Reigen's obvious PhonyPsychic act, even when other characters spell it out to him. [[spoiler:The final arc reveals that he's subconsciously picked up on it a while ago, but is too scared of the implications that his most formative relationship is a complete lie to actually process it.]]
* SexierAlterEgo: [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/mob-psycho-100/images/2/25/Courage.gif/ 100% Courage]], which character design notes jokingly refer to as Mob's "ikemen" form.
* SociallyAwkwardHero: At home and in school he is usually reserved and a bit awkward, even anxious at times, during social interactions. To whit, his "speech" when coaxed into running for Student Council President was an unprecedented 5 minutes of silence.
* SquishyWizard: While unrivaled in pure psychic ability, he's shown to be incredibly out of shape. His time as the newest member of the Body Improvement Club is mostly comprised of him passing out during their morning jogs. [[SubvertedTrope However]], this is only an issue in his everyday life - in combat, Mob is perfectly capable of raising psychic barriers stronger than steel and infusing his body with psychic energy to make himself much stronger. In the latter half of the series, he's [[CharacterDevelopment grown out of the trope entirely]] - while he's pretty far from matching the other members of the Body Improvement Club, his strength and stamina are hinted to be above average at least. In an aversion of HardWorkHardlyWorks, solely psychic-enhanced muscles turn out to be inferior to a mix of psychic power enhancement '''and''' conventional training, which should make Mob a better combatant as well.
* StockShonenHero: Mob is an inversion - instead of being HotBlooded and cheerful, he's emotionally repressed and usually a bit downbeat. Instead of spiky hair all the time that gets spikier the more power he uses, his hair is only spiky when his powers flare up and is usually styled into a rounded bowl cut. Instead of having lots of confidence and lots of friends, he starts the story with very little self-confidence and relies on what few friends he has to keep it from collapsing entirely.
* TheStoic: Mob is usually expressionless by default, and doesn't have much of an sense of humor. After his CharacterDevelopment however, he gets better at interacting with others and smiles more often.
* SuccessfulSiblingSyndrome: While Mob doesn't resent Ritsu for his effortless success at school, being the under-performing brother of Salt Middle School's star student does not do favors for his self-esteem.
* SuddenEyeColor: His eye color (dark red) only becomes apparent when undergoing an explosion.
* SuicidalPacifism: Early on. Knowing how dangerous his powers are, Mob refuses to use it on other humans. [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Exorcising ghosts is fine, though, because it benefits Reigen]]. It takes a while for him to question whether or not that is right.
* SuperEmpowering: 100% Gratitude. [[spoiler:By the time he faces off against the leader of Claw, he's learned how to do this at below 100%.]]
* SuperMode: 100%. Here, his powers become much stronger due to the force of his emotions, allowing him to keep up with exceptionally powerful espers.
* SupernaturalFloatingHair: His most distinctive characteristic when hitting 100%.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: ???%. It comes out when Mob is unconscious, and not only seems to be almost a separate entity from Mob, but is also far more destructive, although it doesn't seem actively malicious, just less restrained in its power use than Mob. [[spoiler:To whit, ???% is so focused on getting to Mob's meeting with Tsubomi that it completely ignores the fact that its presence is pretty much ''destroying Salt City''.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: He's hit the absolute jackpot as far as psychic powers go. Too bad he's more interested in being a SliceOfLife
main protagonist than a shounen action here.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His favorite food is takoyaki and his favorite drink is milk.
* TranquilFury: Even at 100% Rage or 100% Animosity, the only outward sign he's angry is a DeathGlare. That, and the way property damage starts to accumulate around him.
* UnconsciousObjector: Mob is able to keep fighting when knocked out. His power level when he's unconscious? '''"[[ReadingsAreOffTheScale ???%]]"'''. He's terrified of what could happen when he loses control like that. When [[spoiler:Mogami destroys Mob's body... the ???% ''[[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/mob-psycho-100/images/a/a6/Unidentified.png/revision/latest?cb=20160812195426 still takes form]].'' If Mob's physical body is obliterated, then ???% gets unleashed fully. ???% has thoughts and a personality of its own, though seemingly in service to Mob, as it states that because Mob going to see Tsubomi is an important meeting for him, and because Mob has been knocked out from being hit by a car, ???%'s intervention has become necessary and it won't let anything get in its way, including picking up the bouquet Minegishi gave him.]]
* TheUnfavorite: While his parents do love him, he seems to be this compared to his much more classically gifted younger brother, particularly in the eyes of his mother. As a result, Mob envies Ritsu for being a normal kid, which blinded him to Ritsu's resentment for having the incredible psychic powers he craves.
* UnwantedFalseFaith: Former members of the LOL cult decide to start a new cult worshiping him, which he has no desire to engage with despite Mezato's pestering.
* UnskilledButStrong: Mob doesn't have a lot of refined techniques the way most elite Claw members do, but his power advantage is so overwhelming that it rarely matters.
* UsedToBeMoreSocial: He was a lot more expressive and social as a small child. Then the accident with ???% happened, leading him to emotionally shut down and isolate himself.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: While not actually parent and child and he does have actual parents who don't fit this trope, his dynamic with
while Reigen resembles this.
* WarriorTherapist: Many of
continues as the psychics Mob fights end up being on the receiving end of having their insecurities thrown in their faces as Mob destroys them.
* WeirdnessMagnet: It is sort of justified when it comes to evil spirits; after all, his part-time job involves exorcising them, and while some of them end up being fakes, some are bound to be real.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: In the anime, his eyes are drawn in a shiny {{bishonen}} fashion during 100% Courage.
* WhenHeSmiles: He smiles frequently (and adorably) enough, but it's an absolute joy to see him [[spoiler: laughing brightly]] in Ch 101.
* WouldntHitAGirl: In his fight against Tsuchiya at Scar HQ, he reveals that this is one of the morals that Reigen taught him. It takes her pointing out that [[WouldHurtAChild she's an adult woman fighting a middle school boy]] to get him to actually retaliate.

Arataka Reigen (霊幻新隆; ''Reigen Arataka'') is a self-proclaimed psychic who owns a business that deals with exorcising ghosts. Reigen is very clever
(defunct) Telepathy Club. Unlike their president, they only joined the club so they can goof off and has a way with words, so he can easily bring people under his sway. However, he also makes a point of solving his clients' problems spend their freetime eating junk food and making them satisfied, no matter what it takes.playing video games.



* AchievementsInIgnorance: His tendency to dive into situations that he doesn't fully understand, combined with his massive confidence, has led him to pull off amazing victories when no sane person would have even tried.
* AllLovingHero: Downplayed; Reigen will fight if he absolutely has to, but he would prefer to end his battle with words over violence. He defeats [[spoiler:the Scar members by telling them that they are wasting their powers on being evil and should instead focus on improving themselves to be better people. Compare this to a typical anime protagonist who would simply beat them up.]]
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: It's hinted in the OVA Drama CDs and episode 9 of the Radio specials that Reigen was unpopular as a kid and didn't have any friends growing up.
* TheAntiNihilist: Life dealt you a short-hand and you want to take it out on the world? Reigen's answer is to tell you to suck it up and work through it to make something out of your life. Somewhat deconstructed when his tough-love attitude [[spoiler:drives Mob away, leading to him focusing on making the best of his situation by pushing his public persona. This gets him revealed as a fraud, and hands him a serious reality check of his own.]]
* BadassNormal: You wouldn't believe the things this guy can do despite having no powers. He shames several Claw members into working for better lives, isn't fooled by a CreepyChild whose demonic possession everyone else couldn't detect, puts a massive effort to take down a virtual MMORPG ghost that was immune to the abilities of proper psychics and tries to punch out some of the most powerful espers in the planet.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Well, he's got at least one part of that right. [[BadassNormal Or arguably both]].
* TheBarnum: Why bother to dispel people's belief that their backaches are caused by evil spirits when you can make money off it instead?
* BavarianFireDrill: Bluffs his way into places or into the trust of others by acting supremely confident, and it usually works.
* BlockingStopsAllDamage: Reigen tends to cover the back of his head with one hand to avoid concussions if he's thrown around.
* BornLucky: Even with his RefugeInAudacity and having actual espers as allies, this is the only way to explain how not only has he not been torn to pieces by now, but his plans actually ''work''
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: He makes sockpuppet accounts online to defend himself on social media or give his business good reviews.
* CallingYourAttacks: Parodied. He has names for all of his "exorcism techniques", which he loudly shouts out whenever he uses them. Being [[PhonyPsychic what he is]], half of those techniques are ineffective and the other half are just obvious attempts to invoke MundaneMadeAwesome, such as '''Sorcery Crush''' (just a massage) and '''Digital Purification''' (photoshopping ghosts out of photographs).
* CantHoldHisLiquor: It only took one drink for him to get buzzed, and it didn't even have alcohol in it. He even threw up afterwards.
* CharacterDevelopment: Goes from a sleazy JerkWithAHeartOfGold who has no problem using Mob and isolating him in order to keep him under his thumb, to a more understanding mentor who cares for Mob; not just as an employee, but as his friend as well. This is best exemplified when when he [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfHeatwarming give Mob the week off of work so he can focus on training for a marathon and then trains alongside him to keep his spirits up]].]]
* CharacterFocus: While he is the second most important character already, the Separate Ways arc specifically focuses on him, with Mob out of the picture for most of it.
* CharacterTics: The anime shows him waving his hands about erratically when he gestures, most likely to appear more mysterious and powerful than he actually is.
* ChildrenRaiseYou: Reigen didn't exactly have the purest of motivations in mentoring Mob, but he's moved enough by the kid's trust and admiration to put some actual effort in being a decent mentor and role model.
* CombatPragmatist: When facing off against Claw, he drop kicks one while he's distracted, and pretends to use hypnosis on another before randomly decking him in the face. [[spoiler:He pulls a similar trick when facing Touichirou, having him envelop Mob in his psychic barrier as soundproofing so that Reigen will have a clear shot at punching him.]]
* ConMan: PlayedWith. He lies about psychic powers, and will fake his way through anything he can; but his business ethic relies on actually helping his customers, and he has a special hatred for any con artists that play the trope straight. He also refuses to extort his customers, being noted as the cheapest "psychic" on the market, and sometimes accepts non-monetary compensation, such as taking some crop seeds as payment from a poor farmer.
* CowardlyLion: He'll usually try to keep away from a fight, but if someone he cares about is in danger - especially Mob - he'll jump into a fight he knows he can't win and simply hope for a miracle to happen.
* ADayInTheLimelight: The "Separation" Arc puts more focus on him than Mob, exploring his character and why he decided to become a PhonyPsychic.
* DecoyProtagonist: The world of the series is introduced with Reigen and his work. He's soon forced to call Mob for help, who is then revealed to be the actual main character.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: He's one of the most important characters in the series, second only to Mob. He continues filling this role in ''REIGEN,'' though in this case he's second to Tome.
* DrunkOnMilk: Lampshaded and played for drama. After a huge fight with Mob leaves him in a HeroicBSOD over [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone how thoughtless he was acting]], he ends up showing blackout-level symptoms after one cup of a completely non-alcoholic drink, purely due to him believing he should be drunk.
* EccentricMentor: He's a PhonyPsychic who's secured his position as the mentor of the most powerful esper in the world completely through the power of bullshit.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: In a critical moment, Mob's gratitude reaching 100% instinctively transfers his charged power over to Reigen, making him able to NoSell the attacks from the Claw members. It takes a while for him to even realize the level of danger he was dealing with. Even after Mob's power leaves him, he's still awakened enough to be able to see spirits. [[spoiler:This also counts while he's possessed by Dimple at the end of Chapter 100, which makes him powerful and fast enough to close in on ???% Mob and give him a heart-to-heart while he's causing a massive tornado.]]
* EveryoneHasStandards: Reigen may be a fraudster, but at least he's a honorable one who wants to solve people's problems and even teaches them to defend themselves from other con men who only care about swindling people out of their money.
* TheFace: His time spent being TheLeader usually ends up with him as this due to his silver con man tongue making up for his lack of psychic powers.
* {{Foil}}: To Mob. Reigen is bombastic, and plays himself up as powerful, but is really just an average human with an unorthodox skillset and a bizarre amount of luck. Mob is extremely blunt, has very little presence, but is pretty much the most powerful entity in the series bar none. And while Mob wants live his life fairly without worrying about his powers, Reigen desires to become a somebody by becoming a PhonyPsychic.
* {{Greed}}: Played with. Reigen is constantly looking for a new client or job to do and he pays Mob rather pitifully, but he's mainly interested in keeping the lights on and genuinely helping his clients out. As such, he charges much less than other [[PhonyPsychic Phony Psychics]].
* GuileHero: Relies on misdirection and trickery to turn a fight in his favor.
* HairColorDissonance: He either has blonde hair, blonde hair with orange shading, or really light orange hair. According to Character Designer Kameda Yoshimichi, Reigen's hair is supposed to be officially blonde.
* TheHeart: Despite usually taking on a leadership role when the main characters team up, what he really provides above all is emotional and moral support.
* HeroicSacrifice: In the Reigen spinoff, he [[spoiler: hugs Tome in order to take on the deadly curse that was passed onto her by Dozen]].
* HypocriticalHumor: He confronts the (remaining) leaders of Claw by admonishing that they shouldn't be hurting people. Teruki is quick to mentally note that Reigen had just ''dropkicked'' someone right before saying that.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Reigen has always wanted to "become somebody", so when he first met Mob and was amazed about his powers being the real deal, he figured that was his chance to work his way to the top of a line of business.
* InsistentTerminology:
** Mob is well aware that Reigen is no Esper, but Reigen uses the term "Psychic" and that's gotta mean something even though Reigen has no power aura or any supernatural abilities.
** One of Reigen's "special moves" is to sucker punch his target and yell out "SELF-DEFENSE PUNCH!" in the hopes that [[InsaneTrollLogic claiming it's "self-defense" means they can't sue him]], despite him quite obviously striking first.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He often manipulates Mob for his own gain, but does honestly care for him, gives advice about his insecurities and protects him from harm. Eventually [[JerkassRealization he realizes]] he's been keeping Mob from living his youth and becomes afraid of losing his trust.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Zig-zagged. He insists to Mob that when things are really bad, there's no shame in fleeing and living to fight another day, mostly to protect the boy. However, once 100% Gratitude kicks in, he is able to stand his ground against Claw and effortlessly bat their attacks aside.
* LargeHam: When he's on the job, it helps sell the psychic act.
* LoopholeAbuse: His hilariously named "Self Defense Rush", which consists of him rapidly punching his opponent. In the anime the narrator mentions that he calls it this to avoid getting sued or arrested for assault, despite him initiating the attack.
* LoveableRogue: He's a con man with insane luck and even more insane expressions, but his dedication to Mob and to actually helping his clients makes him this.
* MagneticHero: Similar to Mob - while Mob's powers were what Reigen was using fighting the 7th Branch of Claw, his speech about growing up and taking responsibility was what turned them, especially the members of Scar, to his and Mob's cause, resulting in him being placed as leader for [[spoiler:the fight against Touichirou.]]
* MeanBoss: Underpays Mob and calls him to help at the most inopportune times. Becomes more of a BenevolentBoss later on.
* MeaningfulName: "Reigen" is written with the kanji for "spirit" and "illusion" -- a perfect fit for a man who lies about having spiritual powers. "Reigen arataka" is also a homophone for a Japanese phrase 霊験あらたか meaning "miraculous; wonder-working; magical​".
* {{Mentors}}: Although Reigen clearly isn't paranormal, Mob still respects him for his wisdom.
* MetaphoricallyTrue: While he's never given Mob any actual psychic training, he did teach him how to use his powers as promised--he taught him to use them ''responsibly''.
* MindOverMatter: [[spoiler:By lucid dreaming that he has genuine powers, he is able to Salt Punch the ''Devourer'' out of existence in the Devourer's own dreamworld.]]
* MistakenForBadass: Many members of Claw are convinced that Reigen is not only an esper, but an insanely powerful one who can flawlessly mask his spiritual aura. This seems to have been completely unintentional on Reigen's part, [[SureLetsGoWithThat but he's more than happy to roll with it.]]
* MoochingMaster: As the PhonyPsychic mentor to a [[PersonOfMassDestruction very much not phony psychic]] apprentice, this can be expected. Reigen constantly relies on Mob's help whenever he gets in over his head, which is pretty much every single time he encounters even the weakest genuine spirit.
* MoodSwinger: He frequently goes from calm to panicking in the span of a few seconds.
* MoralityChain: Why is Reigen Mob's mentor when there's nothing at all he can teach him about using PsychicPowers? The truth is that he serves a much more important role in Mob's life: his moral compass and emotional support, which is crucial to someone as young as Mob in possession of [[PersonOfMassDestruction massively destructive powers]]. For instance, he is the one who instilled in Mob the rule of never using his powers on humans.
* MrFanservice: Not like how most would picture "fanservice", but it's there in the anime version. [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2016/09/04/feature-the-story-behind-the-mob-psycho-100-ending-sequence-miyo-sato-and-paint-on-glass-animation The animator]] for the ending sequence even asked girls in the studio for a "sexier" way to light a cigarette during his morning routine.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Reigen slaps fancy names on anything he does to make them look like supernatural abilities, such as pretending to lift curses by relieving his clients' shoulders and back with nice massages. The narrator refers to those as his "Secret Techniques" and more often than not, they do turn out to be awesome and unexpectedly effective.
* ParentalSubstitute: {{Zigzagged}}. Mob has parents and his relationship with Reigen is that of a standard master and student. But Reigen often takes the role of a father figure by providing Mob with moral guidance throughout his adventures while doing what he can to protect him from dangerous threats. Not to mention that Reigen is arguably more involved with Mob's character growth than Mr. and Mrs. Kageyama.
* PhonyPsychic: A very talented guy who could be anything but chose to fake being a psychic [[IJustWantToBeSpecial for some reason]]. He has no actual powers and has Mob take care of any genuinely supernatural threats that they come across, though he's usually able to solve his customers' problems in surprisingly effective ways.
** NotSoPhonyPsychic: Gains shades of this after Mob's SuperEmpowering gives him the permanent ability to see (some) spirits. He still has no way of actually dealing with them, [[InvisibleToNormals but it still puts him above the level of normal humans]].
* PhraseCatcher: Any esper or spirit will often say "I don't sense any psychic energy from him" upon meeting Reigen.
* OnlySaneMan: Since all the espers in the series are either emotionally stunted manchildren or ''literal'' children, Reigen often winds up as the only Adult in the room.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gave a rather famous one to the members of Scar during the climax of the Scar Arc. Since he realized he couldn't reason with them as adults since the group [[ManChild had the maturity of children]], he talks down to them like they are petulant children.
--> '''Ritsu:''' He dragged them out of their delusions and back into reality by force, by shattering their dreams.
* RefugeInAudacity: He acts with such supreme confidence and charm that his clients fail to notice that he doesn't actually have any powers, because why else would this guy act this way?
* RunningGag: His specialized anti-esper fighting technique: sidling in close and [[MundaneSolution punching their lights out]] when they least expect it. It never works for long, but it ''does'' work.
* SaltSolution: His primary way of dealing with evil spirits is spraying them with salt. Unfortunately, as one spirit points out, he's using regular table salt rather than purified salt, making it completely ineffective.
* SharpDressedMan: Never seen without a suit, even when he's running around in the woods.
* SnakeOilSalesman: Inverted. Rather than sell fake treatments for real ailments, Reigen masks mundane but effective treatments as spiritual solutions to his client's various "curses". When a client has a ''real'' curse or spirit to deal with, that's when he calls in Mob.
* TheSocialExpert: Reigen has an astute ability to read people and figure out what to say to get what he wants from them.
* SpannerInTheWorks: He manages to invade the Claw division headquarter and accidentally get Mob and company out of an [[PowerNullifier anti-psychic room]] with nothing more than bumbling around, giving rousing speeches to mooks and some unintended RefugeInAudacity.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Reigen 1000%, caused by Mob transferring all of his powers to Reigen during 100% Gratitude.]]
* StressVomit: He starts to strain under the pressure when he gets to realizing that he's still the same false psychic who hasn't changed at all.
* SureLetsGoWithThat: Frequently makes use of this when he's in full confident bluffing mode. The best example is him strolling up to the 7th Division Claw headquarters and acting with such bluster that the underlings there assume he's one of their bosses. He rolls with this without missing a beat and [[RefugeInAudacity successfully browbeats them into letting him into the facility]].
* TeamDad: Generally concerns himself most with the well-being of the crew when they team up - especially Mob.
* TeamNormal: Not that anyone but Dimple knows, though Ritsu has his suspicions.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His favorite foods are ramen and yakiniku. He sometimes treats Mob to some ramen.
* VicariouslyAmbitious: Reigen took up mentoring Mob less because it would boost his PhonyPsychic business (which he was contemplating quitting out of ''boredom'' rather than lack of success before Mob showed up) and more because [[IJustWantToBeSpecial it's as close as he'd ever get to being an esper himself]].
* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: His relationship with his parents isn't the healthiest. As shown in the Separation Arc, his mom's birthday e-mail is mainly about her expressing disappointment over his shady job profession and telling him that "it's not too late" for him to get a normal job. And in the second OVA, [[spoiler: Reigen's goodbye letter features him apologizing to his parents for disappointing them with his life choices]].
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Has said he's afraid of cockroaches.
* WouldHurtAChild: He has no issues with hitting unruly kids as shown in the Urban Legends episode.
* WouldntHitAGirl: This is implied given that he made it a rule for Mob to never hit girls. And based on Mob's account, Reigen states that "guys who go around beating women are the biggest losers in the world".
----

to:

* AchievementsInIgnorance: His tendency AmbiguouslyBrown: Shirihiko has a dark skin color compared to dive into situations that he doesn't fully understand, combined with his massive confidence, has led him friends.
* {{FlatCharacter}}: We don't know much about their personal interests or goals in life.
* {{Foil}}: To the Body Improvement Club. While they're genuinely good hearted kids who want
to pull off amazing victories when no sane person would have even tried.
* AllLovingHero: Downplayed; Reigen will fight if he absolutely has to, but he would
enjoy their youth, they prefer to end his battle with words over violence. He defeats [[spoiler:the Scar members by telling them spend that they are wasting their powers on being evil time lazing around and should instead focus on improving themselves eating junk food compared to be better people. Compare this to a typical anime protagonist who would simply beat them up.]]
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: It's hinted in
how health conscious and physically productive the OVA Drama CDs and episode 9 of the Radio specials that Reigen was unpopular as a kid and didn't have any friends growing up.
* TheAntiNihilist: Life dealt you a short-hand and you want to take it out on the world? Reigen's answer is to tell you to suck it up and work through it to make something out of your life. Somewhat deconstructed when his tough-love attitude [[spoiler:drives Mob away, leading to him focusing on making the best of his situation by pushing his public persona. This gets him revealed as a fraud, and hands him a serious reality check of his own.]]
* BadassNormal: You wouldn't believe the things this guy can do despite having no powers. He shames several Claw members into working for better lives, isn't fooled by a CreepyChild whose demonic possession everyone else couldn't detect, puts a massive effort to take down a virtual MMORPG ghost that was immune to the abilities of proper psychics and tries to punch out some of the most powerful espers in the planet.
BI Club is.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Well, he's got at least one part HeroOfAnotherStory: [[spoiler: Mameta ends up being taken by aliens due to a misunderstanding. During his ten day journey, the boy becomes something of that right. [[BadassNormal Or arguably both]].
* TheBarnum: Why bother
a popular idol among the aliens as he looks for a way to dispel people's belief that return home]].
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Despite
their backaches club being dedicated to researching aliens and the supernatural, they use it as a cover just to goof off.
* TheSlacker: They're only known for their unwillingness to improve themselves and would rather play around all day.
* ThemeNaming: Their last names
are caused by evil spirits when you can make money off it instead?
* BavarianFireDrill: Bluffs his way into places or into
based on the trust of others by acting supremely confident, animal characters featured in the Japanese fairy tale {{Literature/Momotaro}}. Inukawa has "inu" which means "dog", Saruta has "saru" which means "monkey" and it usually works.Kijibayashi has "kiji" which means "pheasant".
* BlockingStopsAllDamage: Reigen tends to cover the back of his head with one hand to avoid concussions if he's thrown around.
* BornLucky: Even with his RefugeInAudacity and having actual espers as allies, this is the only way to explain how not only
YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Haruto has he not been torn to pieces by now, but his plans actually ''work''
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: He makes sockpuppet accounts online to defend himself on social media or give his business good reviews.
* CallingYourAttacks: Parodied. He has names for all of his "exorcism techniques", which he loudly shouts out whenever he uses them. Being [[PhonyPsychic what he is]], half of those techniques are ineffective and the other half are just obvious attempts to invoke MundaneMadeAwesome, such as '''Sorcery Crush''' (just a massage) and '''Digital Purification''' (photoshopping ghosts out of photographs).
* CantHoldHisLiquor: It only took one drink for him to get buzzed, and it didn't even have alcohol in it. He even threw up afterwards.
* CharacterDevelopment: Goes from a sleazy JerkWithAHeartOfGold who has no problem using Mob and isolating him in order to keep him under his thumb, to a more understanding mentor who cares for Mob; not just as an employee, but as his friend as well. This is best exemplified when when he [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfHeatwarming give Mob the week off of work so he can focus on training for a marathon and then trains alongside him to keep his spirits up]].]]
* CharacterFocus: While he is the second most important character already, the Separate Ways arc specifically focuses on him, with Mob out of the picture for most of it.
* CharacterTics: The anime shows him waving his hands about erratically when he gestures, most likely to appear more mysterious and powerful than he actually is.
* ChildrenRaiseYou: Reigen didn't exactly have the purest of motivations in mentoring Mob, but he's moved enough by the kid's trust and admiration to put some actual effort in being a decent mentor and role model.
* CombatPragmatist: When facing off against Claw, he drop kicks one while he's distracted, and pretends to use hypnosis on another before randomly decking him in the face. [[spoiler:He pulls a similar trick when facing Touichirou, having him envelop Mob in his psychic barrier as soundproofing so that Reigen will have a clear shot at punching him.]]
* ConMan: PlayedWith. He lies about psychic powers, and will fake his way through anything he can; but his business ethic relies on actually helping his customers, and he has a special hatred for any con artists that play the trope straight. He also refuses to extort his customers, being noted as the cheapest "psychic" on the market, and sometimes accepts non-monetary compensation, such as taking some crop seeds as payment from a poor farmer.
* CowardlyLion: He'll usually try to keep away from a fight, but if someone he cares about is in danger - especially Mob - he'll jump into a fight he knows he can't win and simply hope for a miracle to happen.
* ADayInTheLimelight: The "Separation" Arc puts more focus on him than Mob, exploring his character and why he decided to become a PhonyPsychic.
* DecoyProtagonist: The world of the series is introduced with Reigen and his work. He's soon forced to call Mob for help, who is then revealed to be the actual main character.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: He's one of the most important characters in the series, second only to Mob. He continues filling this role in ''REIGEN,'' though in this case he's second to Tome.
* DrunkOnMilk: Lampshaded and played for drama. After a huge fight with Mob leaves him in a HeroicBSOD over [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone how thoughtless he was acting]], he ends up showing blackout-level symptoms after one cup of a completely non-alcoholic drink, purely due to him believing he should be drunk.
* EccentricMentor: He's a PhonyPsychic who's secured his position as the mentor of the most powerful esper in the world completely through the power of bullshit.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: In a critical moment, Mob's gratitude reaching 100% instinctively transfers his charged power over to Reigen, making him able to NoSell the attacks from the Claw members. It takes a while for him to even realize the level of danger he was dealing with. Even after Mob's power leaves him, he's still awakened enough to be able to see spirits. [[spoiler:This also counts while he's possessed by Dimple at the end of Chapter 100, which makes him powerful and fast enough to close in on ???% Mob and give him a heart-to-heart while he's causing a massive tornado.]]
* EveryoneHasStandards: Reigen may be a fraudster, but at least he's a honorable one who wants to solve people's problems and even teaches them to defend themselves from other con men who only care about swindling people out of their money.
* TheFace: His time spent being TheLeader usually ends up with him as this due to his silver con man tongue making up for his lack of psychic powers.
* {{Foil}}: To Mob. Reigen is bombastic, and plays himself up as powerful, but is really just an average human with an unorthodox skillset and a bizarre amount of luck. Mob is extremely blunt, has very little presence, but is pretty much the most powerful entity in the series bar none. And while Mob wants live his life fairly without worrying about his powers, Reigen desires to become a somebody by becoming a PhonyPsychic.
* {{Greed}}: Played with. Reigen is constantly looking for a new client or job to do and he pays Mob rather pitifully, but he's mainly interested in keeping the lights on and genuinely helping his clients out. As such, he charges much less than other [[PhonyPsychic Phony Psychics]].
* GuileHero: Relies on misdirection and trickery to turn a fight in his favor.

* TheHeart: Despite usually taking on a leadership role when the main characters team up, what he really provides above all is emotional and moral support.
* HeroicSacrifice: In the Reigen spinoff, he [[spoiler: hugs Tome in order to take on the deadly curse that was passed onto her by Dozen]].

* AmbitionIsEvil: He started a cult so he could become a god. Too bad Mob defeated him before he could fulfill it.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Is asked one by Mob that he has no idea how to answer.
--> '''Mob''': Why do you keep doing bad things?
* AnArmAndALeg: Quickly lost his limbs to Mob when they fought. Over and over. Lucky for Dimple that he had a HealingFactor.
* BackFromTheDead: Being a ghost aside, Dimple has come back from being exorcised or otherwise defeated a few times through sheer willpower. He managed to somehow survive Mob exorcising him during their first meeting, Teru exorcising him in a weakened state sometime after, and [[spoiler:he outright states Mob's friendship with him helped him return after he sacrificed himself to defeat the Lord Psycho Helmet created in the Divine Tree.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:He breaks into Mogami's mental world to keep Mob from falling prey to his corruption.]]
* DemonicPossession: Dimple is able to do this but it doesn't always work. He tries to take over Ritsu with an excuse of wanting to help him use his powers, but Ritsu remains in control. Dimple later gets an opportunity to possess Mob, but finds out he can't properly control his powers and by then, he had taken a liking to the kid.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Towards Mob, who defeated him, although Dimple was only pretending at first. Later he comes to see him as a genuine friend.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Despite all signs pointing to Dimple being erased after the battle with Psycho Helmet, he comes back in Chapter 100 and is still around 6 months later.]]
* FacialMarkings: Two large [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu-esque]] red markings [[BlushStickers on his cheeks]], that also appear on any body he inhabits when possessing them.
* FluffyTheTerrible: It's hard to be scared of a spirit named something as goofy as Dimple, even if he's legitimately dangerous.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Does this to Mob when [[spoiler:he nearly gives in to Mogami's corruption and later when it looked like Mob's entire family was murdered.]]
* GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul: Used hypnosis to force depressed people to smile and join his LOL cult.
* GodhoodSeeker: His primary goal. [[spoiler:Upon assuming the guise of Lord Psycho Helmet and absorbing psychic energy from the Divine Tree, he's become powerful enough to fit the bill, including renaming all his attacks to be prefixed with the "God".]]
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Upon being defeated by Mob, Dimple can't believe he's losing his cult to some random middle schooler. Mob simply admits how unfair his powers are, and then pokes Dimple to oblivion.
* HazyFeelTurn: Once the opportunity arrives for Dimple to [[spoiler:once again become a god, he severs ties with Mob and attempts to take over Spice City with hypnosis. Even then, most of his actions seemed mainly to provoke a violent reaction in Mob, as he actively tries to avoid hurting Mob seriously and, when Mob discards his power through 100% Trust, Dimple's attempts to scare him fall flat when Mob realizes that Dimple truly does care about him.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Dimple sides with Mob after he's been reduced to a fraction of his original power in an attempt to possess him. Eventually, he gives up on possessing Mob entirely and instead prefers to just be his friend.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Lets himself be eaten by Lord Psycho Helmet so he can overpower it and rip the Divine Tree out of the ground, sending it elsewhere to save both Spice City and Mob]]. Subverted in that [[spoiler:he didn't actually die.]]
* HorrorHunger: After being forced to eat all of the other spirits in Matsuo's jar, he developed a taste for other evil spirits. Whenever Mob calls in sick and Dimple has to take his place as exorcist, Reigen's way of paying him is basically "Hey if you find it you can eat it." and Dimple never refuses.
* HumanoidAbomination: His giant high-level form seen when he first fights Mob. [[spoiler:Lord Psycho Helmet, who looks like a sketch based on Mob, is also Dimple in disguise... at least at first.]]
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: His whole ambition, including wanting to become a god, boils down to this. This way of thinking infects his interactions with Mob, where he tries to convince Mob to show off and have more pride in his powers, and how he initially compares Teru's selfish abuse of his powers favorably to Mob's rejection of them.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: [[spoiler:After Mob displays 100% Trust in him, Dimple admits that his desire to be worshiped was ultimately him getting carried away in a desire to be noticed and acknowledged, much like Mob. He wanted to be popular and have friends, and meeting Mob finally opened the door for him in that regard.]]
* InvisibleToNormals: His spirit form is this.
* MeaningfulName: A dimple is a noticeable mark or crease that appears on the cheeks when someone smiles.
* MonstrousCannibalism: Can regain his power by eating other Evil Spirits. It's implied that this is how he dealt with Matsuo's spirits while trapped in his jar, and shown in a subsequent chapter to be his preferred method of exorcism.
* MorphicResonance: Anyone Dimple possesses gains his signature red cheek markings.
* OneManArmy: "Weakened Blob" Dimple against an army of tougher evil spirits? Dimple still wins.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: While making his cult bully Mob around, Dimple lectures the boy about how his inability to emote will forever distance him from others. This causes Mob to finally explode and show what his emotions really are like.
* RedemptionEqualsLife: [[spoiler:After understanding that friendship is what he was really after and giving up on his plans, Dimple ends up sacrificing himself to save Mob from Lord Psycho Helmet. However, he comes back in a weakened state to assist Reigen against ???%, reasoning that Mob's strong belief in him is enough to bring him back from the brink every time.]]
* TheSmartGuy: When he's fighting with the heroes, he tends to be the most knowledgeable about matters relating to evil spirits and psychic powers, and is usually the one to fill the others in.
* SpiritAdvisor: He appoints himself as Mob's [[spoiler:and briefly Ritsu's]] in hopes of eventually corrupting him and taking his power for himself, though he does wind up BecomingTheMask to a degree.
* StarterVillain: The first notable antagonist that Mob faces.
* SuddenAnatomy: He usually looks like a floating green blob with a face and no limbs, but he'll often grow arms out of nowhere whenever it's convenient.
* SuperEmpowering: Anyone possessed by him has their natural attributes boosted, which has come in handy quite a few times. Not only is he able to provide his bodies with reasonable Esper abilities and help control and refine the powers of those who already have them, they become much tougher, stronger and more agile. His frequent possession of Mob shows that he can't use anywhere near his host's full psychic potential, but on the other hand he's able to turn the rather unimposing boy into a pretty effective melee combatant.
* SymbioticPossession: When [[spoiler:Ritsu]] is still only beginning to figure out his powers, Dimple is able to use his possession to fine tune his psychic aura from inside his body. During the Asagiri Mansion and Claw arcs, his relationship with Mob involves this, possessing and controlling his uninhabited or sleeping body in order to protect him from harm. [[spoiler:He also does this with Reigen in Ch 100, boosting him enough to help him weather a tornado caused by ???%.]]
* TokenEvilTeammate: While he does genuinely come to care for Mob and his friends, he started hanging out with the heroes in hopes of possessing Mob for his powers, and [[spoiler:isn't so far gone from his God Envy to pass up on taking control of the Psycho Helmet Cult and brainwashing most of Spice City.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: At first his ultimate goal was to possess Mobís body so he could attempt world domination again. To achieve this, he figures he has to win Mob’s trust, so his strategy is basically befriending Mob, protecting the people Mob likes, the clients he shares with Reigen and Mob himself. And he keeps doing that even ''after'' he realizes that he canít bring Mobís power to its full potential while possessing him. At this point is just natural for him to protect Mob and whoever Mob likes. [[spoiler:This is best apparent in Chapter 97 as, even after becoming powerful enough to pose a threat to Mob, Mob sees through all Dimple's bluster and attempts to draw Mob into a fight as just hollow gesturing, with Dimple refusing to hurt him and even being worried at one point when he thought his God Beam could've killed Mob.]]
* WeCanRuleTogether: He proposes this to Mob the day after his defeat. Mob immediately threatens to exorcise him. Much later, Dimple invites him to take over the Psycho Helmet cult. Mob refuses to be his front-man and asks why is it that Dimple won't stop doing bad things. Dimple leaves looking dejected and takes matters into his own hands.
* WorfHadTheFlu: Dimple was in a weakened state when Teru wiped him out instantly, but then again, Teru probably was also much more powerful than he expected.

Anime Tsubomi was also seen to actually be impressed by Mob's friendship powers at first before getting bored later, while manga Tsubomi was not impressed from the get-go. Anime Tsubomi is also shown more to act like she has known Mob and considers him a friend as she should be as seen with her trying to cheer Mob on during the marathon (before stopping suddenly) as opposed to the manga where she is only seen in a single panel looking at Mob without saying anything.
* ChildhoodFriends: She and Mob used to be pretty close when they were younger. Although they somewhat drifted apart when Tsubomi lost interest in Mob's powers and began to hang out with other kids.

In spite of it, he loves Mob, is an extremely kind soul who despises violence and his well-being is a great priority.wants nothing more than to support those who want to improve their bodies.



* {{Aloof|Big Brother}} BigLittleBrother: Age aside, he plays very heavily into the archetype, and the Big Cleanup sets the ground for brother-against-brother battle [[spoiler:which Mob completely refuses to let happen]].
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Ritsu is everything Mob wishes he could be, and he's seemingly impossible to catch up with despite all of Mob's hard work.
* AscendedExtra: The first chapters simply have him as Mob's nice brother and part of his house life. It's not until the Big Clean up arc he actually becomes a main character.
* TheAce: Ritsu is a lot more physically fit, as well as a perfect student, and his brother Mob envies him for it, [[BrokenAce but all Ritsu wants]] is to become an esper like Mob. [[spoiler:Once he does get his powers, Dimple helps him develop them very quickly, and he soon becomes extremely proficient, although not to the level of, say, Mob or Teru.]]
* BigBrotherWorship: With a twist. Ritsu may view and worship his brother as a god, but gods are worshiped out of ''fear'', and there's nothing Ritsu fears more than the possibility that his brother might not always be so responsible with his power.
* TheBigGuy: While Mob and Teru are stronger than he is because of their powers, Ritsu is more aggressive than either of them on the team, in addition to being larger and more fit than Mob [[spoiler:initially, and remains aggressive with his own esper powers even after Mob reasons with him, unlike Teru]], so he fits this role more than anything.
* BigLittleBrother: Due to him being slightly taller (and looking slightly older) than Mob, and his more assertive, take-charge attitude, it's easy to forget that he's the younger brother.
* BornWinner: Mezato notes that Ritsu's won the genetic lottery when it comes to everything that isn't psychic powers, [[spoiler:and it turns out he didn't completely lose out there either]].
* BrokenAce: He's more physically talented than his brother Mob, something that Mob envies him for, but Ritsu deeply resents his brother for being an esper. [[spoiler:And once he gets powers of his own, Ritsu decides to use his powers selfishly until Mob reasons with him.]]
* TheCallPutMeOnHold: [[spoiler:It turns out he's a late bloomer as an esper. But rather than resolving his inferiority complex, it releases all the resentment towards his brother he had been bottling up and puts him on a destructive power-trip.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: He begins the series distant and slightly fearful of his older brother. The traumatic event from their childhoods where Mob accidentally maimed Ritsu with his psychic powers left a bigger scar than Mob thinks, causing Ritsu to grow jealous of his brother's immense powers. [[spoiler:After gaining powers of his own he realizes that Mob genuinely loves him and wants to protect him, and the two become closer as brothers as a result.]]
* ChickMagnet: Very popular with girls, though he has no interest in reciprocating.
* DidYouActuallyBelieve: Once [[spoiler:his powers awaken]], he rants to Mob that he always envied him and how he was never being able to do anything that might agitate Mob's powers out of fear, in essence making his "supportive, kind brother" attitude a facade. Mob believes that Ritsu only means half of it, and he never denies this.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: His least favorite food is pork feet.
* EmotionalPowers: Much like his brother, [[spoiler:Ritsu's powers are tied to his emotions. He intentionally takes part in the Student Council President's plan just so he can become more powerful from [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the feelings of guilt]].]]
* {{Foil}}: To Mob. He's fantastically skilled in the mundane tasks Mob wishes he could excel in, but spends the early portion of the manga secretly wishing he could give it all up to have fantastic psychic powers like Mob.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Despite excelling at studies and sports, Ritsu just wanted to have powers like his brother's. [[spoiler:He gets his wish granted when he discovers his psychic powers during "The Big Cleanup," and masters them with Dimple's help.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Was never punished [[spoiler:for wrongfully framing school delinquents during the "Big Cleanup" and using his psychic powers selfishly once he gains them.]]
* {{Knight Templar Big|Brother}} [[BigLittleBrother (Little) Brother]]: He can be obsessively (and violently) protective of his brother, [[spoiler:especially after developing his powers]]. Mob even has to talk him down from strangling bullies harrassing him.
* MoodSwinger: He's much moodier and more melodramatic than his older brother, once he sheds the StepfordSmiler tendencies.
* MutualEnvy: He's secretly envious of Mob for having psychic powers, and wishes he had those powers himself. Ironically, Mob wishes he could be as normal as Ritsu, since his powers haven't done much to improve his personal life.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He slowly realizes that [[spoiler:wrongfully framing school delinquents for things they didn't do, thus ruining their lives and reputations]], was wrong. [[spoiler:Later he exploits it by powering his own psychic powers with feelings of guilt.]]
* PsychicPowers: [[spoiler:Eventually gains the power of [[MindOverMatter Telekinesis]].]]
* PubertySuperpower: [[spoiler:While most espers were born with their powers, Ritsu's only started manifesting at age thirteen]].
* TheResenter: Towards Mob, who has the incredible psychic powers he covets. [[spoiler:He stops after gaining his own psychic powers.]] He also really resents Reigen for holding so much of Mob's admiration despite being an obvious fraud.
* OutOfFocus: Of all the major arcs, he is noticeably missing from the Mogami arc and the Separate Ways arc.
* SchoolIdol: Ritsu is the most popular boy in his year (if not the school) with both students and teachers alike, and Mob openly envies him for it.
* SourSupporter: Ritsu doesn't work with Reigen so much as begrudgingly tolerate his existence by his brother's request.
* StepfordSmiler: He spent many years suppressing his fear and resentment towards Mob under an unconditionally supportive BigBrotherMentor facade.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Ritsu turns out to have his own emotional explosion counter, which finally hits 100% when he tries to talk down ???% in the final arc. However, while powerful enough to briefly offer some decent resistance against ???%, it very quickly burns out and leaves him too exhausted to even stand.]]
* TheGift: He's so effortlessly talented in most mundane activities that he's universally considered the "special" Kageyama brother even though [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight his brother literally has psychic powers]]. His introductory chapter is even titled "The Gifted One".
* TeenGenius: He doesn't just the best test scores in school--he has the best test scores in the ''nation''.
* TookALevelInBadass: Begins as a normal boy, but eventually [[spoiler:develops psychic powers.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: His personality and values change for the worse during the Big Cleanup, with him [[spoiler:framing several violent school delinquents for crimes they didn't commit. He also becomes DrunkWithPower after his psychic powers emerge and develops the desire to do whatever he pleases with them, even suggesting he test his powers on Kenji's car during a spoon-bending demonstration. Luckily, Mob is able to reason with him later.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His favorite foods are tofu and boiled pork.
* UnwittingPawn: Subverted; Dimple and Kamuro thought he would be one of these, but he's most definitely not. [[spoiler:He makes it clear that he knows Dimple wants to possess him and lets Kamuro suffer from the fallout of the Big Cleanup alone.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: At first, Ritsu agreed to [[spoiler:take part in the Big Cleanup operation to make the school a better place for weak-willed people such as his brother. He then goes on to believe he actually feared Mob and wanted to keep him from going out of control.]]
* WhatYouAreInTheDark: When he [[spoiler:awakens his psychic powers]] and nobody knows about it, his personality changes drastically and he quickly adopts the attitude that he's entitled to do whatever he feels like (with the toxic influence of Dimple nearby).
* YoungerThanTheyLook: A milder example than other members of the cast, but he could easily be mistaken for Mob's high school aged older brother.

to:

* {{Aloof|Big Brother}} BigLittleBrother: Age aside, he plays very heavily into DumbMuscle: He's the archetype, and the Big Cleanup sets the ground least knowledgeable of his crew. In compensation, Musashi has a [[JusticeWillPrevail great sense of justice]].
* FaceOfAThug: Has been confused
for brother-against-brother battle [[spoiler:which Mob completely refuses to let happen]].
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Ritsu is everything Mob wishes he
a delinquent multiple times, even though it could be, and he's seemingly impossible to catch up not be farther from the truth. [[spoiler:It's implied that this being true for him, as well as the rest of the Body Improvement Club, is why they're introduced with despite all of only just enough members to count as a club, while the manga ends with much more novice members due to Mob's hard work.
* AscendedExtra: The first chapters simply have him as Mob's nice brother and part of his house life. It's not until the Big Clean up arc he actually becomes a main character.
* TheAce: Ritsu is a lot more physically fit, as well as a perfect student, and his brother Mob envies him for it, [[BrokenAce but all Ritsu wants]] is to become an esper like Mob.

* BigBrotherWorship: With a twist. Ritsu may view HeroicBuild: Is quite muscular, and worship is an extremely NiceGuy with a [[JusticeWillPrevail great sense of justice]].
* JusticeWillPrevail: A strong believer in this trope.
* LovableJock: Shares this trope with all fellow members of the Body Improvement Club.
* MartialPacifist: He hasn't built
his brother body for violence, but when he hears another school took Mob as a god, but gods are worshiped hostage, Musashi ''flips out''.
* MusclesAreMeaningful: When Dimple takes over Musashi to protect Mob from an esper with psychically-enhanced muscles, he points
out of ''fear'', Mob was right all along and there's nothing Ritsu fears more than the possibility that his brother might not always be so responsible with his power.
the villain's power is no match for Musashi's diligent training.
* TheBigGuy: While Mob NiceGuy: He's willing to stick out for anyone who needed help, and Teru are stronger than he is because supportive of Mob. He even allows the Telepathy Club to continue using the room they were in, since they really only needed a place to store their powers, Ritsu equipment. [[spoiler:When Tenga is more aggressive than either of them on falsely accused by the team, in addition to Student Council of being larger and more fit than Mob [[spoiler:initially, and remains aggressive with a pervert, tainting his own esper powers even after Mob reasons with him, unlike Teru]], so he fits this role more than anything.
* BigLittleBrother: Due
reputation, Musashi decides to help him being slightly taller (and looking slightly older) than Mob, and his more assertive, take-charge attitude, it's easy to forget shape up. Musashi also knows that he's the younger brother.
* BornWinner: Mezato notes that Ritsu's won the genetic lottery when it comes to everything that
Tenga isn't psychic powers, [[spoiler:and it turns out actually a pervert and defends Tenga from Shinji when he didn't completely lose out there either]].
* BrokenAce: He's more physically talented than his brother Mob, something that Mob envies
tries to get him for, but Ritsu deeply resents his brother for being an esper. [[spoiler:And once he gets powers of his own, Ritsu decides to use his powers selfishly until Mob reasons with him.expelled.]]
* TheCallPutMeOnHold: [[spoiler:It turns out he's TheWorfEffect: His group is a late bloomer as an esper. But rather than resolving his inferiority complex, it releases all the resentment towards his brother he had been bottling up and puts him on a destructive power-trip.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: He begins the series distant and slightly fearful of his older brother. The traumatic event from their childhoods where Mob accidentally maimed Ritsu with his
force to be reckoned with, but they're no match for Teruki's psychic powers left a bigger scar than Mob thinks, causing Ritsu to grow jealous of his brother's immense powers. [[spoiler:After gaining powers of his own he realizes that Mob genuinely loves him and wants to protect him, and the two become closer as brothers as a result.]]
* ChickMagnet: Very popular with girls, though he has no interest in reciprocating.
* DidYouActuallyBelieve: Once [[spoiler:his powers awaken]], he rants to Mob that he always envied him and how he was never being able to do anything that might agitate Mob's powers out of fear, in essence making his "supportive, kind brother" attitude a facade. Mob believes that Ritsu only means half of it, and he never denies this.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: His least favorite food is pork feet.
* EmotionalPowers: Much like his brother, [[spoiler:Ritsu's powers are tied to his emotions. He intentionally takes part in the Student Council President's plan just so he can become more powerful from [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the feelings of guilt]].]]
* {{Foil}}: To Mob. He's fantastically skilled in the mundane tasks Mob wishes he could excel in, but spends the early portion of the manga secretly wishing he could give it all up to have fantastic psychic powers like Mob.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Despite excelling at studies and sports, Ritsu just wanted to have powers like his brother's. [[spoiler:He gets his wish granted when he discovers his psychic powers during "The Big Cleanup," and masters them with Dimple's help.]]
* KarmaHoudini: Was never punished [[spoiler:for wrongfully framing school delinquents during the "Big Cleanup" and using his psychic powers selfishly once he gains them.]]
* {{Knight Templar Big|Brother}} [[BigLittleBrother (Little) Brother]]: He can be obsessively (and violently) protective of his brother, [[spoiler:especially after developing his powers]]. Mob even has to talk him down from strangling bullies harrassing him.
* MoodSwinger: He's much moodier and more melodramatic than his older brother, once he sheds the StepfordSmiler tendencies.
* MutualEnvy: He's secretly envious of Mob for having psychic powers, and wishes he had those powers himself. Ironically, Mob wishes he could be as normal as Ritsu, since his powers haven't done much to improve his personal life.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He slowly realizes that [[spoiler:wrongfully framing school delinquents for things they didn't do, thus ruining their lives and reputations]], was wrong. [[spoiler:Later he exploits it by powering his own psychic powers with feelings of guilt.]]
* PsychicPowers: [[spoiler:Eventually gains the power of [[MindOverMatter Telekinesis]].]]
* PubertySuperpower: [[spoiler:While most
or any antagonistic espers were born with their powers, Ritsu's only started manifesting at age thirteen]].
* TheResenter: Towards Mob, who has the incredible psychic powers he covets. [[spoiler:He stops after gaining his own psychic powers.]] He also really resents Reigen for holding so much of Mob's admiration despite being an obvious fraud.
* OutOfFocus: Of all the major arcs, he is noticeably missing from the Mogami arc and the Separate Ways arc.
* SchoolIdol: Ritsu is the most popular boy in his year (if not the school) with both students and teachers alike, and Mob openly envies him for it.
* SourSupporter: Ritsu doesn't work with Reigen so much as begrudgingly tolerate his existence by his brother's request.
* StepfordSmiler: He spent many years suppressing his fear and resentment towards Mob under an unconditionally supportive BigBrotherMentor facade.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Ritsu turns out to have his own emotional explosion counter, which finally hits 100% when he tries to talk down ???% in the final arc. However, while powerful enough to briefly offer some decent resistance against ???%, it very quickly burns out and leaves him too exhausted to even stand.]]
* TheGift: He's so effortlessly talented in most mundane activities that he's universally considered the "special" Kageyama brother even though [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight his brother literally has psychic powers]]. His introductory chapter is even titled "The Gifted One".
* TeenGenius: He doesn't just the best test scores in school--he has the best test scores in the ''nation''.
* TookALevelInBadass: Begins as a normal boy, but eventually [[spoiler:develops psychic powers.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: His personality and values change for the worse during the Big Cleanup, with him [[spoiler:framing several violent school delinquents for crimes
they didn't commit. He also becomes DrunkWithPower after his psychic powers emerge and develops the desire to do whatever he pleases with them, even suggesting he test his powers on Kenji's car during a spoon-bending demonstration. Luckily, Mob is able to reason with him later.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His favorite foods are tofu and boiled pork.
* UnwittingPawn: Subverted; Dimple and Kamuro thought he would be one of these, but he's most definitely not. [[spoiler:He makes it clear that he knows Dimple wants to possess him and lets Kamuro suffer from the fallout of the Big Cleanup alone.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: At first, Ritsu agreed to [[spoiler:take part in the Big Cleanup operation to make the school a better place for weak-willed people such as his brother. He then goes on to believe he actually feared Mob and wanted to keep him from going out of control.]]
* WhatYouAreInTheDark: When he [[spoiler:awakens his psychic powers]] and nobody knows about it, his personality changes drastically and he quickly adopts the attitude that he's entitled to do whatever he feels like (with the toxic influence of Dimple nearby).

* YoungerThanTheyLook: A milder example than other members Who knew that the muscled president of the cast, but he could easily be mistaken for Mob's high school aged older brother.Body Improvement Club is actually ''fourteen-years-old''?

* TheAce: Becomes this after his HeelFaceTurn, training to help the world and becoming one of the few known espers capable of using more than one technique at a time.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Noted a couple of times to have brown hair in the comic, but the anime gives him bright blond hair instead.
* AmbiguouslyBi: Teru's seen on a date with a girl the first time we meet him, but he seems to have a crush on Mob. In the manga, he tells Mob that girls are, in fact, staring at him because he's handsome, and takes him shopping. During the Divine Tree arc, [[spoiler:Dimple refers to Teru's "true feelings" for Mob; Teru says he will end their "relationship" if Mob does not give up on his attempts to destroy the Divine tree; Teru states that, before the Divine Tree and Lord Psycho Helmet, Mob was the most important thing to him; he apologizes before hitting Mob with his power; and, when being thrown out of the Divine Tree, he can't help but comment through is brainwashing that Mob is "so amazing"]]. In the anime, he comes off as rather flirty with Mob and trying to get his attention during the Claw arc, offering his help by stating Mob will need someone who is strong, smart, and on his side, and then later by commenting that he, too, was nearly killed by some of the Claw members. Also, during the second OVA, [[spoiler:Teru questions if Mob has a crush on anyone in the Body Improvement Club, which consists of all boys. Teru would know this-- he's met them.]]
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Teru is able to replicate the special abilities of other espers simply by watching them use their techniques.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: He tries to force Mob to fight back with his psychic powers, and feels like both of them lost when he chokes Mob into unconsciousness. Then [[SuperMode ???% Mode]] kicks in, and Teruki gets what he wanted - in a complete and utter CurbstompBattle that forces him to eat his words and completely destroys every bit of self-perception he had built up over his entire life.
* BigEater: A fact Reigen would have preferred to know ''before'' he invited him along for dinner in an omake.
* BreakTheHaughty: Mob delivers a BreakingSpeech to Teruki and, in ???% mode, [[NakedPeopleAreFunny tears his clothes off]], drains his power and levitates him and the entire landscape into the sky, proving a point about how dangerous psychic powers can be. Teruki admits Mob was right and leaves in shame as he realizes even Mob had genuine friends. After several days of trauma from such a loss, he recovers and becomes a better person.
* CloseCallHaircut: Thrice. Once in his battle with Mob, he just narrowly avoids being scalped, but it takes away the top of his hair. And again in the face-off with the Claw Organization, except it just cuts off half of his ridiculous wig. It looks better that way. The final time is during [[spoiler: the Broccoli Arc, where Teruki's battle with ???% leads to the first incident being paralleled almost perfectly.]] Thankfully, it grows back for the finale.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Became a member of Mob's circle of allies after getting an ass-kicking.

* DoesNotLikeSpam: His least favorite food is raw oyster (bad experience).
* EvilCounterpart: Initially one to Mob, in that he frequently abuses psychic powers for his own benefit while Mob keeps his own abilities under tight control unless danger is present. After his HeelFaceTurn, he started acting like Mob.
* FullContactMagic: He likes to get up close and personal, using telekinesis to augment physical strikes
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Subverted at first, but after he got his ass kicked by Mob and going through the above BreakTheHaughty, he slowly started becoming kinder and more heroic.

* HeelFaceTurn: After his fight with Mob.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Fires a knife at Mob and it gets accidentally deflected at his head, [[BaldOfEvil taking away most of his hair]]. Whoops.
-->''Teru's head: 0%''
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: To the point where once he found out he has psychic powers he started to consider himself "The Main Character of the World" and "The Chosen One". After Mob beat him down he calmed down on this.
* ImportantHaircut: Getting shaved by Mob during their fight was the first bit of humiliation needed for him to start becoming a good guy. After the 7th Branch Infiltration arc, he's settled into a short, spiky hairdo as his heroic look, as opposed to his medium-length messy hair from his introduction. It doesn't last-- within the last ten chapters of the manga, [[spoiler: Teruki is once again left with only the sides of his hairstyle intact after a catastrophic fight with ???%.]] His hair is back to a cut similar to his original long locks for [[HappyEnding Chapter 101.]]
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Mob comes to realize that deep down, this is what Teru feels. [[spoiler:By their next meeting, he's learned to embrace the "Inferiority" part to an extent, recognizing that being an Esper doesn't mean he's better than anyone else, and resolves to make himself a better person because of that.]]
* InstantExpert: Has very little trouble learning new powers, as shown by him mimicking Terada's Air Whips mere minutes after seeing them in action.
* InsufferableGenius: Mob may have struck a serious blow to his ego, but he didn't exactly kill it.
-->'''Teru:''' You're going to need an ally. Someone talented, reliable, and brilliant. Luckily, he's much closer than you might think.
-->'''Mob:''' ... [[ComicallyMissingThePoint The Body Improvement Club?]]
-->'''Teru:''' No, idiot. You'll need ''me''.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Because of his power, he felt like he was the main character of the world. Then he had an encounter with Mob at ???% and has since lost this trait.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: He likes beating or waterboarding the answers out of uncooperative mooks, even after his HeelFaceTurn. The Drama CD reveals that he [[PercussiveMaintenance similarly tortures his VCR]] when it eats one of his vintage tapes
* JapaneseDelinquents: Introduced as the last resort of his school's delinquents.
* {{Jerkass}}: At first. Learns to be a NiceGuy after his defeat.
* KillingIntent: After losing his hair to Shigeo, Teru snaps and starts trying to kill him.
* TheLancer: He's Mob's most consistent partner when facing off against threats, and is generally a little more headstrong than the more passive Mob.
* MentorArchetype: After his HeelFaceTurn, he mentors several other Espers in expanding their weak psychic powers.
* MinorLivingAlone[=/=]Parental Abandonment: His parents have been working overseas for years.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Uses psychic power to enhance his physical skills and toss around the Body Improvement Club like they were nothing.
* NormalFishInATinyPond: Based on Teruki's angry reaction to Mob {{No Sell}}ing his opening attack, Dimple describes him as having lived much of his life as a big fish in a tiny pond.
* PlayingWithFire: Learns pyrokinesis after seeing Miyagawa use it.
* PragmaticHero: Even after his HeelFaceTurn, Teru is not above torturing henchmen to get information he needs. Likewise, unlike Mob, he will not hesitate in exerting deadly damage towards his enemies, particularly if he was attacked first, [[KillItWithFire as Miyagawa unfortunately found out]].
* PsychicPowers: Powerful [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] which he used to enhance his moves without revealing his ability to people.
* OutOfFocus: Like Ritsu, he doesn't show up in the Mogami arc and the Separate Ways arc.
* ShadowArchetype: An example to Mob of how abuse of psychic power can twist people.
* SmugSuper: At first, he was a powerful psychic with a superiority complex. Then Mob knocked him down a peg or two.
* TookALevelInBadass: Learns to use two different psychic abilities at the same time, which is something few espers can do.
* TookALevelInKindness: After his battle with Mob, he lost most of his arrogant streak and started to be more friendly towards others.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His favorite food is steak.
* VillainousBreakdown: Teru is given a breaking lecture by Mob on how they're nothing without their powers. Unable to defeat Mob with psychic power, Teru just tries to choke him to death, essentially giving up on his own terms for fighting Mob.
* WeakButSkilled: Relative to Mob, Teru makes up for his lack of raw power with his uncanny ability to replicate the abilities of other espers.
* WrongGenreSavvy: He was so completely convinced he was the protagonist of a shounen battle manga that Mob shatters his entire worldview simply by refusing his demand to prove MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours and asserting that neither of them are special. Even following his redemption, he still has a tendency to frame his friendship with Mob as a shounen battle "rivalry" despite its uncompetitive nature.

* AgentMulder: She's the only one in the Telepathy Club who actually believes in telepathy and using it to contact extraterrestrials, while the other members are just there to slack off.
* AscendedExtra: She assumes the role of the main character in ''Reigen'', since she's [[spoiler:an unofficial employee of Spirits and Such]] by that time.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: In ''Reigen,'' she's the first ONE protagonist not to have any sort of special abilities, either earned or naturally-gained. Also unlike Mob, instead of being more interested in living a normal life and being more popular, but sort of happening into unusual situations, Tome wants to become more deeply entrenched in the supernatural and occult of the world while being pushed away from it by others, and doesn't care about more mundane goings-on in life.
* DamselInDistress: She ends up in at least three perilous situations in the ''Reigen'' spinoff. It's justified in the sense that each of them were supernatural themed and Tome has no powers or past experiences to rescue herself.

The Leader of the Claw Organization whose goal is to create a world where Espers reign over normal humans.



* AbusiveParents: Shou heavily implies it, and their confrontation results in [[spoiler:Touichirou beating his son so violently that his loyal {{Dragon}} couldn't stand to remain in the room]].
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Shou doesn't want to stop him only because of the pain of watching a loved one go off the deep end--it's also because watching your dad act like a cartoonish supervillain on national television is just plain mortifying.
* ArcVillain: Of the World Domination arc.
* ArchnemesisDad: To Shou.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Is the leader of Claw as well as its most powerful member.
* BadBoss: Sees his followers as tools for world domination, including the Super 5. [[spoiler:This leads to one Super 5 member as well as an entire sister organization defecting to Mob's side, and another Super 5 member saving the main characters to pay off a life debt owed to Mob.]]

* AGodAmI: And has the power to back it up, able to grant decent psychic power to an army of 600 espers without losing any substantial amount of his own power.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Big time. He is hyped from relatively early in the series as the ultimate antagonist and greatest opponent, and while he causes unprecedented destruction and chaos during the World Domination arc, he is also soundly defeated during it. The manga is far from over at that point and there are another 2 key arcs after his defeat.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: Close, if it weren't for Mob. He experiences HeelRealization as he's about to self-destruct and expressed his wish to see his wife one last time and apologize to her, but ultimately accepts his fate and requests Mob to at least let him end it himself in order to atone. Mob says otherwise. [[spoiler:He later attempts to sacrifice himself to stop ???%, believing RedemptionEqualsDeath, but Shou successfully talks him out of it.]]
* FamilyEyeResemblance: He and his son have ice blue eyes with pinprick pupils, which distinguish them as two of the only four characters drawn with irises at all[[note]]The other two being Tsubome (in the anime) and 100% Courage Mob[[/note]]
* {{Foil}}: To Reigen. The two men are charismatic masters who guide their own groups of espers and even have a pupil with remarkable psychic potential. The difference is that Touichirou has high level psychic powers and intends to use them, and his subordinates, to achieve his dream of world domination. Reigen, on the other hand, has no psychic powers and instead encourages his students/followers not to abuse their powers as it doesn't make them any different from normal people.
* GreaterScopeVillain: The leader of Claw, who are first revealed when Mob, Teru, and Dimple launch an assault on their 7th Branch.
* HeelFaceTurn: After his HeelRealization from being saved by Mob, he turns himself in to the government despite this possibly meaning his death or torture. Although he has still have some of his bad parts, his personality has mellowed out and he is willing to fight on the side of good.

* DisabilitySuperpower: His super senses seem to be
particularly bad about heightened due to the destruction fact that he's blind.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Apparently because he's blind. Opens them when
he causes whenever he wreaks havoc, as it happens on a daily basis.
* BoxedCrook: [[spoiler:The Japanese government offers to commute
uses his sentence Mind's Eye technique.
* FailedASpotCheck: He has to dedicate at least ''some'' attention to his surroundings
if he wants to predict movements, which means centering his attention on one thing or forcing him to deal with too many variables at once can help resolve ???%'s rampage cause him to slip up. Thus, [[spoiler:both his decision to concentrate on espers and the sheer power of Mob's aura leave everything else so BeneathNotice that Reigen can just casually walk up to him and beat him senseless]].
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: His Mind's Eye technique reveals black sclera with glowing pinprick pupils.
* GodzillaThreshold: Arguably the strongest and most dangerous member of the Super 5 as he's capable of taking on [[spoiler: the combined efforts of Reigen's Esper team.]] And even then, [[spoiler: he only decides to quit after being taken by surprise by Reigen's "Self Defense Rush" and sensing Mob's intense power levels]].
* HeyYouHaymaker: He's extremely fond of these, as teleportation grants him many opportunities.
* NotQuiteFlight: While he ''can'' levitate, his preferred method of aerial travel is to teleport to whatever spot
in the finale, though air he agrees wishes to be in that particular second and keep 'jumping' to cheat inertia.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: He wears all black, has a red shirt, and is helping Suzuki with his world domination schemes.
* SharpDressedMan: He's dressed quite handsomely.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Once cornered by Reigen's team, he comes to the conclusion that fighting an "esper able to conceal his aura" [[spoiler:really just Reigen sneaking up while he's focused on the others]], as well as sensing Mob's power being far above his own, is a losing battle and surrenders.

* SmugSnake: Claims superiority over how he's able to predict the movements of others, [[spoiler:but his own movements are super predictable as well, and once he's distracted, he goes down hard.

* SuperSenses: Can predict
his world domination plan is unleashing a torrent of Psychic Energy he's been building up inside him for [[spoiler:''20 years''.]]
enemies' movements this way.
* AGodAmI: And has WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Unlike the power to back it up, able to grant decent psychic power to an army of 600 espers without losing any substantial amount of his own power.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Big time. He is hyped from relatively early in the series as the ultimate antagonist and greatest opponent, and while he causes unprecedented destruction and chaos during
other enforcers, Shimazaki's whereabouts after the World Domination arc, he is also soundly defeated during it. Arc are a total mystery. The manga is far from over at that point and there are another 2 key arcs after his defeat.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: Close, if it weren't for Mob. He experiences HeelRealization as he's about to self-destruct and expressed his wish to see his wife one last time and apologize to her, but ultimately accepts his fate and requests Mob to at least let him end it himself in order to atone. Mob says otherwise. [[spoiler:He later attempts to sacrifice himself to stop ???%, believing RedemptionEqualsDeath, but Shou successfully talks him out of it.]]

only four characters drawn with irises at all[[note]]The other two being Tsubome (in clue we get in the anime) and 100% Courage Mob[[/note]]
* {{Foil}}: To Reigen. The two men are charismatic masters who guide their own groups of espers and even have a pupil with remarkable psychic potential. The difference
omakes is that Touichirou has high level psychic powers and intends to use them, and his subordinates, to achieve his dream of world domination. Reigen, on the other hand, has no psychic powers and instead encourages his students/followers not to abuse their powers as it doesn't make them any different from normal people.
* GreaterScopeVillain: The leader of Claw, who are first revealed when Mob, Teru, and Dimple launch an assault on their 7th Branch.
* HeelFaceTurn: After his HeelRealization from being saved by Mob, he turns himself in to the government despite this possibly meaning his death or torture. Although he has still have some of his bad parts, his personality has mellowed out and he is willing to fight on the side of good.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He's defined by his extremely solipsistic worldview that leads
him to view everyone else, including his own son, as bit characters who exist only for him to exploit.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Averted hard. His entire MO involves embracing his esper powers and wanting to be recognized as a literal ''god'' of the universe. [[spoiler: But after being humbled by [[AllLovingHero Mob]] along with his son saving him from his suicidal mission to take down [[FinalBoss ???%]], Touichirou decides to give up his psychic powers and voices a new desire of living a normal life with his family]].
* IOweYouMyLife: His reason for stopping Mob on his rampage. The latter stopped him on his own, it's suitable that he does the same to repay his debt, although it ended up being futile.
* LackOfEmpathy: He's a solipsist who can't even recognize other people as ''people'', much less care about their feelings.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Serizawa, an unhealthy dependence which [[MoreThanMindControl Touichirou actively encourages]].
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Seeks esper superiority over the world, and at one point even [[PuttingOnTheReich performs the infamous Roman salute.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: You'd never guess from looking at him that he's almost fifty years old.
* PowerIncontinence: The more power he uses, the more he has trouble controlling his power. [[spoiler:At 100%, it threatens to make him self-destruct, which would not only kill him, but obliterate pretty much all of Spice City if Mob hadn't been there to absorb his psychic energy.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: While seemingly calm and mature on the surface, his defining characteristic is that he never grew out of his adolescent egocentrism and still holds a very childish view of how the world works.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In the anime. his eyes frequently glow red.
* ShadowArchetype: Mob claims during [[spoiler:100% Compassion]] that he sees Touichirou as what he could've grown up to be without the guidance of his mentor and friends. He also serves as one for Reigen, being a savior and mentor to a powerful but neurotic and gullible psychic whose powers they exploit. He represents what Reigen would be like if he was truly cold-hearted and didn't show regret
in exploiting others for his personal gain.

* UnusualEyebrows: Each one is serrated with three large "fins." An omake shows Shou worried about inheriting them.
* VillainousBreakdown: As Mob forces him to [[spoiler:use more and more of his power, he starts becoming more unstable due to the stress it puts on his body and mind. Just before he explodes, his last thoughts are wanting to see the wife he drove away with his psychic power, but wanting Mob to kill him before his power destroys Spice City.]]
* VillainsOutShopping: An omake shows that he delayed his plan to take over the world when he heard ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' was premiering.
-->'''Touichirou:''' ... World domination can wait.
* WorldsStrongestMan: He is indeed the strongest esper alive, and his output far exceeds that of Mob due to years of experience. Although, things change when he faces a SuperPowerMeltdown and Mob saves him at the last moment.
* WouldHurtAChild: One of Claw's prime objectives, which he instilled, is to kidnap as many youth with psychic potential and brainwash them to support his cause. That and [[spoiler: he shows no regret over physically harming his own son when Shou betrays him]].

* LargeAndInCharge: The tallest character in the series, and a member of the Claw's Super 5.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Turns out that Psycho-Steroids are a cheap method of attaining super strength, as Dimple bringing out the potential in the Body Improvement Club's president, who earned his muscles the hard way, is capable of defeating him.
* TemporaryBulkChange: His Psycho-Steroids ability allows him to control his muscle mass with his mind.
* UnstoppableRage: Once he activates his Psycho-Steroids, even Yuusuke's knockout spray completely fails to work against him. For reference, this same spray had previously knocked '''100% Animosity Mob''' out cold.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Sees normal humans as little better than monkeys, and views Espers as inherently superior.
* PsychopathicManChild: When he gives a rant, sans mask, his art shifts meaningfully to the point that he looks like an infant... which is fitting, since, without his mask or a voice changer, his rant about his motives (Basically, he wanted everyone to pay attention to him and praise him
for how great he was) is so childish as to be infantile.

* BarrierWarrior: Can manipulate his own Psychic Membrane of his own accord.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: While using Mind's Eye.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: His eyes are shown to be nothing more than black masses of scribbles on the rare occasion that he opens them.

* EyesAlwaysShut: Apparently because he's blind. Opens them when he uses his Mind's Eye technique.
* FailedASpotCheck: He has to dedicate at least ''some'' attention to his surroundings if he wants to predict movements, which means centering his attention on one thing or forcing him to deal with too many variables at once can cause him to slip up.

to:

* EekAMouse: Got so scared by a cockroach AffablyEvil: Very soft-spoken and calm. He's genuinely like this and at most expresses mild surprise when something unexpected happens. Even in the face of utter defeat he simply delivers an analytical comment about it and escapes.
* AmbiguousSituation: It's not entirely clear what happens to him after he gets free in the World Domination Arc. However, he is most likely lurking out there somewhere considering
that an Evil Spirit has to be at peace to pass on, something he hit certainly wasn't.
* ArcVillain: Of

aptly named Mogami Arc. Notable for exorcisms.
* StarterVillain:
having the longest personal screentime of any individual villain, even more than Suzuki, since The first villain/evil World Domination arc attention is diluted between the massive amount of characters present on it.
* AssassinOutclassin: After he stopped working as a hitman, he mentions many were sent to kill him. Keiji doesn't really expand on this... but he is shown walking away from a mountain of corpses.
* TheCorrupter: Comes one step away from mentally breaking Mob by throwing him into an utterly hopeless world in an attempt to make him adopt his world view. He ultimately fails but only because of Dimple's intervention.
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: Constantly has these. He likes the look enough to actually manifest his
spirit form with them.
* {{Curse}}: While he was alive laying these was his SignatureMove as an esper.
* DefiantCaptive: [[spoiler: Despite being captured by Matsuo, he proves
to be introduced his most difficult and untamed spirit among his collection]].
* DemonicPossession: Possesses a young rich girl in his first appearance. Attempts to pull this on Mob's vacant body when he uses the out of body technique, but Dimple fortunately takes the body first and protects it.
* DissonantSerenity: He views people who pick on others as a plague on society and casually claims their lives have no worth when corrupting Mob.
* DreamLand: Capable of creating one inside the person he is possessing. He can shape it to his will and alter its fundamental rules, but his control over it wavers if the victims inside are strong enough to resist the MindRape
* EarlyBirdCameo: Only in the anime - he can be seen on the left side of the screen alongside multiple other psychics in the opening narration of the first episode.
* EldritchAbomination: Powerful enough to qualify as this, and Dimple openly refers to him as the strongest evil spirit.
* EmbarrassingNickname: [[spoiler:Like all spirits Matsuo captures, Mogami gets a sugary pet name--Pudding-chan.]]
* EnergyAbsorption: In life, he absorbed the power of Evil Spirits so that he'd become an exceptionally powerful one in death. When he's re-released during Claw's attempted coup, he decides to drain the energy from Claw's esper army as well. Mob later copies this style of ability during the final showdown with Claw's Boss.
* FamedInStory: One of the world's most known psychics by virtue of being the first one to actually show the world the supernatural occurrences, psychic powers and paranormal events on television back when he was a teenager, and remaining as a TV celebrity until much later. He's equally famed in the spirit community for being the strongest and most dangerous evil spirit.
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: He likes to use the appearance he had as a 24-year-old, which he describes as his peak in human life. Somewhat unique in this since almost all evil spirits use outright monstrous forms or at least humanesque abominations, but Mogami likes his actual human visage and only starts to drop it when he is forced to use larger amounts of power.
* FreudianExcuse: When it became clear that people cared more about using his powers than they did helping him as a person, especially when his mother was dying of illness, he started becoming bitter towards all of humanity. His time spent as a hitman and the reveal that his mother's illness was a result of his powers drawing evil spirits towards her lead him to snap completely, and declare that powers like his and Mob's should only be used for their own gain.
* GreenThumb: Can possess plants to create large vine-like monsters.
* HumanoidAbomination: As an esper, he ate Evil Spirits for breakfast - in a much more literal sense than Mob.
* KnightOfCerebus: The biggest of the ''entire'' series, massively outclassing Koyama or any other villain in this regard. His arc is by far the darkest
in the series.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Is extremely incredulous InstantDeathRadius: His life drains ability allows him to kill people around him. Even low-class espers get instantly killed by this. He comments that they are a middle-schooler nice meal.
* LotusEaterMachine: Creates one inside of Minori's body when Mob invades with the idea of turning him into a sympathizer of his twisted ideals.
* MindRape: He basically inflicts this upon Mob for a whopping six months. He comes ''dangerously'' close to breaking him and only fails due to Dimple's intervention.
* NightmareFace: Produces a pretty horrifying one when itís first discovered that Minori is in fact possessed. Notable for simply projecting the horror as a shadow behind her rather than wearing it himself. In the mind world, as he becomes damaged and forced to use more of his power his appearance deteriorates over time, giving a more monstrous look.
* ThePowerOfHate: He believes that the most troubled a person is and the more negative emotions they harbor the stronger the evil spirit they will produce upon death (if any). ''He's right'' and outright uses it as a part of his ThanatosGambit.

* FamedInStory: One of the world's most known psychics by virtue of being the first one to actually show the world the supernatural occurrences, psychic powers and paranormal events on television back when he was a teenager, and remaining as a TV celebrity until much later. He's equally famed in the spirit community for being the strongest and most dangerous evil spirit.
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: He likes to use the appearance he had as a 24-year-old, which he describes as his peak in human life. Somewhat unique in this since almost all evil spirits use outright monstrous forms or at least humanesque abominations, but Mogami likes his actual human visage and only starts to drop it when he is forced to use larger amounts of power.

* NightmareFace: Produces a pretty horrifying one when itís first discovered that Minori is in fact possessed. Notable for simply projecting the horror as a shadow behind her rather than wearing it himself. In the mind world, as he becomes damaged and forced to use more of his power his appearance deteriorates over time, giving a more monstrous look.

Somewhat unique in this since almost all evil spirits use outright monstrous forms or at least humanesque abominations, but Mogami likes his actual human visage and only starts to drop it when he is forced to use larger amounts of power.
* FreudianExcuse: When it became clear that people cared more about using his powers than they did helping him as a person, especially when his mother was dying of illness, he started becoming bitter towards all of humanity. His time spent as a hitman and the reveal that his mother's illness was a result of his powers drawing evil spirits towards her lead him to snap completely, and declare that powers like his and Mob's should only be used for their own gain.
* GreenThumb: Can possess plants to create large vine-like monsters.
* HumanoidAbomination: As an esper, he ate Evil Spirits for breakfast - in a much more literal sense than Mob.
* KnightOfCerebus: The biggest of the ''entire'' series, massively outclassing Koyama or any other villain in this regard. His arc is by far the darkest in the series.
* InstantDeathRadius: His life drains ability allows him to kill people around him. Even low-class espers get instantly killed by this. He comments that they are a nice meal.
* LotusEaterMachine: Creates one inside of Minori's body when Mob invades with the idea of turning him into a sympathizer of his twisted ideals.
* MindRape: He basically inflicts this
act upon awakening is to tearfully beg Mob for a whopping six months. He comes ''dangerously'' close forgiveness as she resolves to breaking him and only fails due to Dimple's intervention.
* NightmareFace: Produces a pretty horrifying one when itís first discovered that Minori is in fact possessed. Notable for simply projecting the horror as a shadow behind her rather than wearing it himself. In the mind world, as he becomes damaged and forced to use more of his power his appearance deteriorates over time, giving a more monstrous look.
* ThePowerOfHate: He believes that the most troubled a person is and the more negative emotions they harbor the stronger the evil spirit they will produce upon death (if any). ''He's right'' and outright uses it as a part of his ThanatosGambit.
* ProfessionalKiller: Became one in an attempt to pay his mother's medical bills.
* PsychicPowers: He was an esper in life. Notable because he ''lacked'' the [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] that is signature to espers in the series. He still had the classic energy barrier and the ability to see and exorcise spirits though. His own "unique" power was to lay curses on others. These could even
be lethal, which later allowed him to become a hitman. As a spirit, he manages to grasp telekinesis, but of a slightly different type than that of an actual esper.better person.
* SatanicArchetype: Once among the most famous and powerful Espers, he eventually fell from grace and ended up becoming the most powerful evil spirit in existence. He is also in command of his own legion of the damned, composed of the thousands of evil spirits he absorbed. While inside Minori's body, Mogami tries to corrupt Mob RichBitch: Her normal personality. It continues into a self-centered Esper like himself or the Claw members.
* SealedEvilInACan: Eventually captured
her fantasy world, where she belittles and named [[FluffyTheTerrible "Pudding-Chan"]] by Matsuo. He gets out much later during The World Domination Arc.
mocks Mob.
* SecondPersonNarration: He serves as this SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She appears to Mobís first-person while he traps develop a crush on Mob and desires to see him in the Mind World. Itís almost pure nightmare fuel.
* SignatureMove: The ability to lay curses was this for him while alive. As an evil spirit, he prefers a combination of MindRape and EnergyAbsorption.
* SoLastSeason: {{Averted}}. His brief appearance on the World Domination Arc shows that he is still as absolutely terrifying as last time. He effortlessly kills a large esper squadron and barely bats an eye as he overpowers a member of the Super 5... each of whom were more or less as strong as ''Teru.''
* ThanatosGambit: Step 1: Consume the essence of evil spirits. Step 2: Commit suicide. Step 3: Become an evil spirit too powerful to be exorcised.
* VillainHasAPoint: Downplayed. He is not entirely wrong in saying that the world is fundamentally unfair, nor is he wrong in his assessment that, under different circumstances, Mob's life certainly '''could''' have gone down a much darker path. But ultimately, he's just horrifically petty and selfish - far from actually helping Mob like he claims to, all he's doing is artificially making Mob's life terrible just so he can gain a powerful follower.
** In his second appearance, he tells Mob that sometimes it's important to be hard on people when kindness won't change them. Mob would use this lesson when fighting against [[GreaterScopeVillain Touichirou]].
* VillainRespect: In his second appearance, he spares Minegishi's life thanks to Mob vouching how it's important to have faith in people and their ability to change.
* WakeUpCallBoss: The first opponent against whom Mob uses a completely positive 100%... as well as being the only one to actually ''overpower'' said 100%. Starting with him, major villains are now dramatically harder to defeat, always requiring more than simply going 100% and blasting said opponent to hell, basically because ''it's no longer enough.''
* WeirdnessMagnet: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] - it was this exact quality of his that caused his mother to become sick, with her becoming an evil spirit and yelling at him about this
again after she died.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After he's released again during the World Domination Arc,
he disappears with his fate being left unknown.

He has formed the Sun Psychic Union as a way of both maximizing profits and maximizing his control over the business. Something of a TV star, he is one of the better-known psychics in the business. His actual abilities are unknown, though he appeared to display an unusual aura while performing an exorcism, hinting he may be an Esper.

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: He got a good look at Reigen's face during the Minori Asagiri exorcism when Reigen saved his life. His repayment was to try to ruin Reigen's life for going freelance (and for kicking him to drive Mogami out of him).
