    Himiko Toga 

Himiko Toga

Quirk: Transform

Debut: Issue #6: Power and Responsibility

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/himikotoga.png

A teenaged serial killer who is obsessed with blood, she runs with the Rocket Racers while Izuku is busy training to get into U.A. She becomes infatuated with Peter while seeing him bloody and beaten during the live broadcast of the Prowler incident.


  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Toga hints that when Peter made Number One mangle his own hand, she was tempted to masturbate right there but controlled herself.
  • Adaptational Badass: Toga was dangerous enough before, but once she ingests Peter's blood, it reacts violently with her Quirk, causing her to develop powers similar to Kaine's, including the standard plethora of spider-powers, organic webbing, and stingers to stab people with and drain their insides.
  • Admiring the Abomination: She's not at all unhappy when she learns that the left half of her face has become a bloody, matted mess after ingesting Peter's blood and shows awe and delight instead.
  • The Assimilator: This becomes her goal after ingesting Peter's blood. She becomes obsessed with becoming whole by devouring the rest of him, and hopes to devour his loved ones too so they can all be one as the "ultimate family".
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: She obtains these after ingesting Peter's blood, allowing her to produce stingers she can use to stab and drain the insides of others to kill them and take their forms.
  • Blood Lust: She digs her knife through a man's nose and stabs a teenage boy to wipe his blood all over her helmet. She also expresses her desire to make Peter bleed.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Toga doesn’t see anything wrong with her actions because it’s how she expresses love, which she considers undefinable.
  • Composite Character: She becomes one with the Thousand and Kaine, possessing the spider-powers and intense scarring of the latter and the desire to eat others and take their forms of the former.
  • Cute and Psycho: She's a cute-looking high school girl who happens to be a serial killer obsessed with blood and consuming it to steal the identities of others.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Gender doesn't matter when it comes to her affections: only how much and how frequently her newest crush is bleeding.
  • Evil Makes You Ugly: She ends up being permanently disfigured after ingesting Peter's blood, melting half of her face off and turning her left eye permanently milky white.
  • Facial Horror: She manages to get to collect enough of Peter's blood off of Stain's weapons for her to transform into him. But its radioactive properties wreak havoc with her Quirk, and her face starts to melt off in the process.
  • Genetic Memory: The radioactive and mutagenic properties of Peter's blood cause her to inherit his memories after she ingests them. As a result, she's now obsessed with becoming one with him and his family.
  • Girlish Pigtails: They emphasize the dichotomy between her goofy schoolgirl exterior and how truly insane she actually is.
  • Horrifying the Horror: She's a terrifying serial killer with a blood fetish, but even she is screaming in terror once she sees that half of her face has melted off. But she's fine with it when she wakes up again afterwards.
  • Humanoid Abomination: She becomes this after ingesting Peter's blood, developing the ability to break down and suck out people's insides with stingers shooting from her wrists until their bodies are nothing but skin attached to a skeleton.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: She's clearly enjoying herself while slashing and stabbing everyone in sight and got a crush on Peter after seeing his bloody and beaten body.
  • Knife Nut: She carries a knife around constantly and happily stabs others just to see their blood.
  • Rollerblade Good: She rides roller skates long with two other members of the Rocket Racers.
  • Serial Killer: She goes after anyone who she finds cute and killing them to drain their blood so she can become them.
  • Sex Is Violence: She's constantly turned on by the sight of blood and the chance to make people bleed.
  • Super Strength: She develops spider-powers of her own similar to The Other after ingesting Peter's blood. When they first manifest, she's easily able to break out of nylon restraints and bashes an EMT's face in until her eyeballs are hanging out of her skull. That said, it doesn't seem to be nearly as pronounced as Izuku's or a Peter's, as a common paramedic was able to briefly keep her at bay.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: She flees while Peter is occupied with Number One. She gives him the slip by ditching any gear that could be used to identify her and vanishing into a crowd.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Her Quirk doesn't help her out directly in combat, but she's acrobatic and resourceful enough to impress Peter and incredibly good with a knife. The weak part goes out the window after she develops spider powers of her own.
  • Wicked Cultured: One wouldn’t expect a Japanese teenage girl to be into The Beatles, but Toga is.
  • Yandere: Her idea of a crush is to kill that person, watch them bleed, and steal their identity.
  • You Are Number 6: Literally. She's referred to as Number Six while working with the Rocket Racers.

     Chizome Akaguro - "Hero Killer" Stain 

Chizome Akagaro - Stain

Quirk: Bloodcurdle

Debut: Issue #6: Power and Responsibility

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stain_anime_profile_5.png

The infamous "Hero Killer" who targets Heroes he deems to be "Fakes" in hopes of creating a world where there are only purely selfless heroes like All Might. His Quirk, "Bloodcurdle", allows him to paralyze people by consuming their blood, with the amount of time spent paralyzed varying based on blood type.


  • '90s Anti-Hero: He sees himself as one, culling the "fake" Heroes so that "real" Heroes like All Might would take their place. The narration even lampshades the fact, given his pouch and blade-filled aesthetic, edgy name, and a power activated by consuming blood.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: He appears as early as Issue 6, a day before Izuku takes the U.A. Entrance Exam. In the manga, he doesn't appear in-person until after the Sports Festival.
  • Adaptational Villainy: He's somehow worse than his canon counterpart since he's clearly more deranged and is even willing to kill on incredibly flimsy reasoning. His reason for attacking Peter is because he believes Peter's a vigilante who patterns himself after Spider-Man, which means he's a selfish fake who can't own up to his actions. Once he learns Peter is Spider-Man, he goes absolutely foaming at the mouth crazy trying to kill him.
  • Ax-Crazy: He's obsessed with culling Heroes he deems to be "Fakes" and wants to murder as many as he can so more can be like All Might.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: An Ax-Crazy murderer suffering from Black and White Insanity has a Quirk that lets him paralyze others by licking their blood.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Hypocrisy, or more specifically, anyone who falls under a shade of gray outside of Black-and-White Morality. He dismisses Mount Lady genuine feelings of remorse for being unable to stop the Prowler as an attempt to save face (albeit, she was trying to improve her image) and throws a knife at the TV out of disgust. He proceeds to stomp and crush on the miniature TV for a while until he calms down.
    • Spider-Man is an especially hot subject for him, as Stain blames him for normalizing the idea of a "relatable" Hero who might put his own needs before others when compared to the boy scouts embodied by previous "fictional" characters like Superman and Captain America. As such, he pins the current Hero system on Spider-Man, which spurs him to go after Peter. When he finds out that Peter is the actual Spider-Man, Stain goes ballistic and screams for him to die while blaming the world on him.
  • Black and White Insanity: Stain is a moral objectivist, believing that there are only pure good and pure evil and that any semblance of grey needs to be culled. This is emphasized by the Mr. A comics lying around his apartment.
  • Blood Lust: He licks up the blood of others in order to activate his Quirk. His entire fighting style and use of swords and daggers are designed to make this easier for him.
  • Blood Magic: His Quirk requires him to consume blood in order to activate it.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: After he manages to paralyze Peter, Stain goes on a Motive Rant on why he kills Heroes and why he hates Spider-Man especially. Unbeknownst to him, Peter's radioactive blood let him shrug off the effects of Stain's Quirk faster, leading to a surprise sucker punch before subjecting Stain to a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • Close-Range Combatant: His only ranged attacks are throwing his knives at people, as he needs to get in close to draw people's blood and lick it off his blade.
  • Combat Pragmatism: His M.O. involves him ambushing unsuspecting victims and taking their blood before executing them while they're paralyzed and helpless.
  • Costume Porn: The story goes into meticulous detail about his costume and as shown by the picture above, it's far more complex than most characters' outfits in the story.
  • Determinator: He will not give up in his quest to purge the world of "fakers" no matter what. Even after getting his jaw fractured, the bones in his shoulder dislocated, and being pinned to a wall by webbing, he still tries to make wild swings at Peter with his free hand.
  • Didn't See That Coming: He has Peter at his mercy after managing to lick his blood. Unfortunately for him, his Quirk wore off far more quickly than expected thanks to Peter's radioactive blood.
  • Dramatic Irony: He mentions that he plans to keep an eye on Izuku to make sure his heroic ideals aren't "corrupted". Little does Stain know that Izuku has already decided to take up the mantle of Spider-Man, who Stain despises the most.
  • Dual Wielding: He often takes a sword and a dagger out at the same time.
  • Evil Counterpart: Peter unfavourably compares him to the Punisher. There's the crusade, the ultra-violence and the black-and-white morality, but at least Frank never claimed he was killing people for noble reasons instead of his own self-satisfaction.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Stain's red eyes seem to glow in the dark.
  • Hero Killer: As shown by his title, he's killed and maimed dozens of Heroes on his own. He also manages to nearly kill Peter, a veteran superhero in his own right.
  • Irony:
    • Despite one of his Berserk Buttons being a hypocrite, he himself is a hypocrite since he despises Heroes who act in their own self-interest and his murderous crusade is ultimately born from serving his own personal gratification.
    • On a meta-level he's also a fan of Steve Ditko's Mr. A, highlighting his obsessive belief in its themes of Objectivism. However he violently hates Spider-Man for being a down-to-earth Classical Antihero instead of the sterling boy scout heroes of the past. Both were creations of Steve Ditko.
  • Insane Troll Logic: One of the reasons he thinks Peter is a "faker" is because he dodged a trash can, believing that a true hero would've just taken the hit because "What if there was a civilian who just used the side exit for a quick smoke?"
  • Loony Fan: He's a crazed fan of All Might, attacking, maiming, and murdering Heroes he believes failed to live up to All Might's standard of heroism.
  • Made of Iron: He's amazingly tough despite not having a Quirk related to his durability, managing to fight Peter on even ground. This is what convinces Peter to finally cut loose and whale on Stain, who could actually take one of his hits and not die. By the end, Stain is still alive after getting multiple bones broken, his jaw dislocated, his cheek torn open, and having his wrist crushed by Peter.
  • Knife Nut: He carries knives constantly, including one he uses to destroy a small television set.
  • Oh, Crap!: He finally shows panic when he realizes that he's going to be put in jail by the one Hero he despises the most: Spider-Man.
  • Reverse Grip: He makes gratuitous use of this while fighting Peter.
  • Serial Killer: Stain targets any Hero he deems a "Fake", meaning anyone who isn't as selfless and altruistic as All Might. Given how lofty that goal is, it's rare for Stain to approve of anyone.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: His outfit doesn't have sleeves and he nearly manages to kill Peter.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He completely loses his cool after getting his jaw broken. Shortly after accepting Stain's criticisms, Peter reveals that he's the real Spider-Man and not some imitator before giving him a "The Reason You Suck" Speech about Stain's short-sighted motives. As Peter moves in to knock him out, Stain starts flipping his shit about how only All Might is allowed to defeat him before Peter shuts him up. Unlike his badass final stand in canon, this Stain is more of a pathetic rabid dog.
  • Villain Has a Point: Downplayed. Stain rants and raves about how Heroes aren't as selfless as they used to be. He's justified by Mirko and Mount Lady bickering over who gets credit for beating the Rhino and picks apart Peter's own faults. By the end of their fight, Peter admits that Stain is right, but that doesn't justify killing less straightforwardly good Heroes as they have families and are still out there helping people.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: He's interested in Izuku's selflessness and willingness to risk his own life for an (apparently) complete stranger after seeing the incident unfold on TV. He takes note of Izuku and declares that he'll monitor him to prevent his "corruption".
  • What the Hell, Hero?: He calls Peter out on not stopping to think about the people who would get caught in the crossfire when he took to the streets to flee from Prowler.
  • You Will Be Spared: He decides that Izuku won't be on his hit list after watching him run at the Prowler on television. Peter on the other hand...

    Living Brain 

Living Brain

Quirk: Quirkless (is a machine)

Debut: Issue #14: Crisis On Campus

Intended to be the ultimate mobile supercomputer capable of answering almost any question, the Living Brain became a tool for criminals and a headache to Peter Parker at various points in his career. It reappears again in Izuku’s universe after the Prowler uploads its operating system into U.A’s database under All For One’s orders so that it can assist Shigaraki.


  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Prowler certainly thinks that Living Brain is the standard killer A.I. It certainly doesn’t help that it refers to her as “meatbag”.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Fortunately for the heroes, the Living Brain decides to abide by its programming and does not attack the heroes until Shigaraki gives it the signal to even though it could have done so at any time. Because of this, Nezu has time to prepare countermeasures to restrict its movements and isolate it so it can't escape onto the wider internet.
  • The Bus Came Back: A running gag for the character, as despite its goofy appearance and outdated technology it somehow keeps returning to cause trouble.
  • Death Seeker: Implied. Every time Living Brain was turned off, it was re-activated and used only to face the same cycle over and over again. When Nezu deletes it for good, Living Brain doesn't seem to mind as at last it’ll never be used again.
  • Expy: Of AM, due to being a supercomputer with an overwhelming hatred of humanity wishing to see them all dead or tortured for its existence. However, while AM began hating humanity as soon as it was activated the Living Brain acquired its hatred over a long period of time.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Despite being beaten, losing to both humans and animal, Living Brain accepts his death feeling gratitude.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: Originally designed as a simple question answering machine, being constantly reprogrammed to serve destructive ends before begin destroyed and repaired allow the Living Brain to gain sentience. Unfortunately, this also meant that it became aware of what was being done with it and grew to despise humanity for perverting its original design.
  • Humans Are Bastards: After being repeatedly used as a weapon, treated as an unfeeling thing even by other androids, and being denied its original, peaceful purpose since its inception, the Living Brain has come to this conclusion and hates them with every bit of its code.
  • Not So Different: Nezu admits to having once held the same views on humans as Living Brain due to also having been used by them. Though that changed when he saw the good in humans, while Living Brain could not.
  • Sliding Scale of Robot Intelligence: The Living Brain was designed to be able to answer any question. As a result, it can processes trillions of operations per second, well ahead of many modern commercial computers, despite being over 50 years old. This means Hollywood Hacking is trivial to it, though a sufficiently intelligent being can potentially counter it.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Sometime during the years it traded its gigantic body for a USB stick, which can be plugged into a database as secure as U.A’s and download itself inside without a problem. Later on getting upgrades expanding it's own self-awareness.
  • Tragic Villain: Of sorts. Living Brain explaining that all its life it was used by humans only to be beaten and mocked by heroes countless times over and over again. Due to this it acquires its hatred of humanity seeing them as selfish and destructive creatures not deserving to live.
  • Verbal Tic: "Whrr—click-ick".
  • Voice of the Legion: When it starts its attack, it's said to speak through a hundred voices and a hundred faces, having taken control of U.A.'s fleet of training robots.

    Gentle Criminal 

Gentle Criminal

Quirk: Elasticity

Debut: Issue #20: The Impossible Escape

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gentleanime.png

A 32-year-old man with a desire to carve his name into history. He performs crimes for the sake of drawing heroes to him so he can put on performances that are put online for the world to see. His Quirk is "Elasticity", which grants elasticity to anything he touches.


  • Affably Evil: He may be willing to hold up cashiers at knife point, but he does not seem to mean any actual harm and is taken aback when Peter suggests he would put the hospital residents in danger for his rescue attempt.
  • Attention Whore: Every crime he commits seems to be for the purpose of getting as many people to view him as possible. In fact, he doesn't mind at all that the police are watching the videos and also decides to do bigger crimes with the simple intent of getting more views. The only reason he even set out to rescue Peter was because staging a fight with the famous Vigilante would get him more views.
  • Barrier Warrior: One application of Gentle's Quirk is to turn air elastic, essentially turning it into a bouncy force field.
  • Cultured Badass: Played for Laughs. Gentle attempts to live up to this standard by making it a point to look fanciful and uphold tea time and drink only the finest brews befitting the scale of his exploits, but his exploits are so small and petty half the time that nobody takes him seriously.
  • The Dandy: His clothes definitely give off this air, with his fancy cape and cowl, pinstriped pants, and well-groomed hair.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even if Gentle sorely wanted to rescue Peter for a staged fight, he draws the line at using the hospital residents or employees to ensure their escape.
  • Friendly Enemy: Despite intending to fight Peter for the sake of views, he was willing to help restitch his wounds and give him time to recover in his apartment rather than kick Peter out when he regained consciousness.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Gentle tries to uphold this kind of image for his "fanbase".
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: Peter suspects Gentle is one when they first meet. According to La Brava, this happens a lot when he's seen with her. He, however, appears to not let it get to him.
  • Silver Fox: He has gray nearly white hair despite being only 32, but his gentlemanly style is actually quite attractive. This is something La Brava wholly approves of.
  • Tears of Joy: Sheds some of these when La Brava tells him that his video of rescuing Peter has gotten several thousand views and likes.
  • Younger Than They Look: His white hair, facial hair, Silver Fox mannerisms and the dark circles around his eyes make him appear to be in his mid-forties, but he's actually in his early thirties. Once his hair is down and he's out of his costume, he properly looks his age.

    La Brava 

La Brava

Quirk: Love

Debut: Issue #20: The Impossible Escape

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bravaanime_3.png

A young woman who is Gentle's greatest (and possibly only) fan. As a Villain she acts as his sidekick and camerawoman, code-named La Brava. Her Quirk is "Love", which grants an exponential increase in power to the ones she loves and further increases said boost depending on how strong her feelings at the moment are.


  • Ascended Fangirl: La Brava went from being Gentle's (possibly only) die-hard fan to his personal assistant, partially thanks to her hacking skills, which she used to find out where he lived and move in with him.
  • Berserk Button: She really hates people thinking that Gentle is a pedophile because of her. It's enough to make her blow up at Peter just for thinking it.
  • Cutesy Dwarf: Just over an inch taller than Mineta's three-and-a-half feet of height, and unlike him is shapely and well-proportioned, which is emphasized by her poofy pants and Neo-Victorian style costume.
  • Fangirl: La Brava, who might be Gentle's biggest (and only) fan, while also serving as his sidekick in charge of spreading his videos around online repeatedly.
  • Height Angst: While La Brava is perfectly comfortable with her own body, she hates the fact that her dwarfism makes people think Gentle is a pedophile whenever they are seen together. She also expresses annoyance with the fact that she needs to inform practically everyone that she's 21.
  • Love Confession: Weaponized in La Brava's case, as it serves as a vocal trigger for her Quirk to take effect. It's not indiscriminate though, as she can decide when to make the three words a trigger or not.
  • Mega Twintails: La Brava's twintails are big enough to reach past her waist. She had small Girlish Pigtails in school, simply wore her hair down as a shut-in and let it grow long and messy, and then adopted her current hairstyle when she first sought out Gentle.
  • Older Than They Look: She's 21, but has looked roughly the same since middle school. Funny enough, it's the inverse of Gentle's Younger Than They Look.
  • Playful Hacker: La Brava, who puts all her skills as a master hacker into the sole purpose of etching Gentle's name into history rather than genuine criminal activities.
  • The Power of Love: Literally. Her Quirk lets her give a temporary power boost to others, and the stronger her feelings for that person at the moment she activates it, the greater the boost.
  • Rapunzel Hair: She has Mega Twintails down past her waist.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: The tiny La Brava is the master hacker of the duo compared to the relatively technologically impaired Gentle.
  • Shout-Out: To the Elmore Leonard novel La Brava, where the title character becomes involved with an actress he admired after seeing her onscreen as a child. This roughly parallels how La Brava wound up with Gentle.
  • Symbol Motif Clothing: Hearts, since her Quirk utilizes The Power of Love. She has several of them on her outfit, including heart-shaped earrings and a heart belt buckle. Even her twintails form a heart shape when viewed from certain angles.
  • Tears of Joy: Cries with Gentle when she sees that their video of rescuing Peter has gotten thousands of views and likes, something that has never happened before in their years together.

Upstart Villains

     Rocket Racer Gang 

Rocket Racer Gang

Quirk: Unknown

Debut: Issue #6: Power and Responsibility

A gang of aspiring Villains riding around on rocket-powered vehicles. They're among the many upshot Villains who are taking inspiration from Marvel rogues with the tech they acquired from Mysterio. They're tearing up the streets of Musutafu while Izuku is busy training to get into U.A.


  • Cool Board: The leader, Number One, has a rocket-powered skateboard.
  • Fingore: Number One's hand is left a broken and bloody mess after Peter tricks him into ramming it into a concrete wall.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Number One's reckless use of the rocket-powered equipment he used to assault and steal from others ends up horribly mangling his hand when he punches a concrete wall at 60 miles an hour.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Number One gloats when he brutally punches out a police officer while riding his rocket-powered skateboard. While he's initially able to get the drop on Peter when he was blinded by One's visor, Peter manages to goad One into trying to Rocket Punch him while Peter stood next to a wall, only to jump away at the last second, letting Newton's Third Law mangle the villain's hand.
  • Legacy Character: They're the unofficial successors to the original Rocket Racer, who began as a D-list supervillain before becoming a D-list superhero and retiring altogether.
  • Mythology Gag: They hide their identities by wearing masks of popular Heroes, including Ingenium, All Might, Endeavor, and Spider-Man. Then Peter arrives to stop them while quipping, "You lost weight, All Might!"
  • Red Is Violent: A team of six red-wearing hellions who happily wreak havoc in Musutafu, causing grievous injury and looting whoever they can. Himiko is this epitome of this, slashing random people for no reason just to see their blood. The scooter-riding members also have rocket launchers built into their gear that fragment into shrapnel, heavily injuring Manual and several bystanders despite his best efforts.
  • Rocket Punch: Invoked. Number One has rockets on his gloves that he uses to quickly close the distance on an officer and punch him hard enough to rip open the skin on his face and knock out several teeth. He shouts, "Aw yeah! How’s that for a Rocket Punch?!" while speeding away.
  • Rollerblade Good: Himiko and two other guys roll around on four-wheeled roller skates.
  • Stuffed into a Trashcan: Peter tosses the Gang Orca Rocket Racer into a dumpster with a web before tying down the lid with another web.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Their equipment makes them a menace, but none of them are especially skilled. Number One is shaking his hand after punching Peter several times, tipping Peter off to the Rocket Racer's lack of Super Toughness and his inexperience in a fight.

     Beetle Gang 

Beetle Gang

Quirk: Unknown

Debut: Issue #8: Super Hero School

A group of Villains who used the equipment of Abner Jenkins. They're brutally murdered by the Enforcers after failing to pay their dues.


  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Clash kills one of them by emitting a powerful noise that made him bleed from his eyes, nose, and ears. Vulture kills another one by somehow riddling his body with holes and obliterating half of his face.
  • Powered Armor: They used a version of the armor used by the original Beetle, which grants superhuman strength, speed, and durability.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Offed as soon as they were introduced to demonstrate the lethality of the Enforcers.

     Kangaroo and Frog-Man 

Ichigo and Katsuro Ito

Quirk: Rubber Hose and Silver Tongue

Debut: Issue #16: The Coming of The League of Villains!

A pair of Villain siblings who are gold-star members of the Power Broker app. On loan from Mysterio to Tomura, the two quickly gain his ire thanks to Kangaroo's psychopathic and childish behavior while her brother feebly tries to keep her in check. Knowing that Mysterio has a bounty on Spider-Man, Kangaroo decides she's going to be the one to put an end to him but not before "playing" with him.


  • Ax-Crazy: Kangaroo is completely insane and only gets enjoyment through hurting and killing other people, who she considers to be more toys than actual humans. The only exception to this is her brother, as she is appalled when he suggests placing him in that context.
  • Berserk Button: Hurting her brother will result in Kangaroo completely losing it and trying her best to kill the perpetrator as quickly and brutally as possible.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Frog-Man's primary motivation is the safety and happiness of his sister, although he tends to lean more towards the latter despite how it affects those around them.
  • Brother–Sister Team: They are a pair of siblings who constantly fight together for the sake of living their lives at the expense of their targets.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Frog-Man's costume gives him the ability to jump great distances much like a frog.
  • Civvie Spandex: The two of them wear U.A uniforms despite not attending school there by Kangaroo's insistence while also wearing big cartoonish masks of their respective codenames.
  • Combat Tentacles: Frog-Man's Quirk allows him to extend his tongue like a frog's, with the added bonus that the tip of his tongue becomes coated in a silver metallic edge that allows it to slice through metal with ease.
  • Cyborg: Unlike most of the other Villains empowered by Mysterio, Kangaroo underwent surgery to cybernetically enhance her legs to give her incredible jumping and kicking ability.
  • Freudian Excuse: Ichigo has had a case of extreme psychopathy all her life, resulting in her torturing a cat. Her parents tried to treat this by bringing her to a doctor and having her take medicine, but this made her dead to the world. Katsuro, taking his duties of a brother too seriously, convinced his parents to have her stop taking it which only resulted in her hurting other people. Hearing their parents talking about committing Ichigo to an asylum, Katsuro took his sister and ran away from home. This only resulted in the two living a life of crime to sustain themselves and getting involved with Mysterio, resulting in Ichigo's mental stability degrading and their capture. Katsuro even admits that he has nobody to blame for this but himself.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: Aoyama succinctly deconstructs Kangaroo's motive as a cliche "the world made me this way" rant before telling her to go to hell in French. It's enough to send her into a blind rage and shift her focus onto him instead of Izuku.
  • Fricking Laser Beams: Frog-Man primarily uses a laser-spewing rifle that can blow holes in people's heads.
  • Hidden Depths: Kangaroo, in spite of her insanity, does recognize how her actions negatively affect her brother and feels intense guilt over getting him into deeper trouble with her.
  • Irony: She dismisses Aoyama as a weakling because he isn't a physical powerhouse like she is. Ultimately, she's done in by a plan Aoyama concocts.
  • Kick Chick: Due to her cybernetic enhancements, Kangaroo prefers to finish people off by kicking them rather than using her arms. Her kicks are strong enough to break through Todoroki's ice and lob huge chunks of it at him.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Kangaroo is fast and strong enough to put Izuku on the backfoot, running circles around him until Aoyama manages to throw off her concentration by insulting her.
  • The Load: Tomura knows that Kangaroo is the real muscle of the pair and that Frog-Man isn't really as big of a threat since he defers to her. This is apparent when he doesn't last long against Mina and Izuku.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Womanchild. Kangaroo treats life and killing people as one big game, and reasons that because she's strong she can do whatever she wants since the weak are just toys for her amusement.
  • Sadist: Kangaroo adores inflicting pain and the sight of Ludicrous Gibs.
  • Spring Coil: Kangaroo's Quirk grants her the ability to turn her arms into powerful springs. By stretching her arms out, she can throw punches that easily crush bows and take off people's heads. The only reason why Izuku survives is because of his innate Super Toughness.
  • Superhero Speciation: Frog-Man's powerset is remarkably similar to Tsuyu's, given their similar Multipurpose Tongues and frog motifs. But Tsuyu has the whole froggy package while Frog-Man's jumping abilities are derived from his costume. Mina lampshades the similarities between them, saying that Tsuyu would have to sue him.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Kangaroo is a lot like Himiko Toga in their mutual adoration for inflicting pain and seeing blood. But while Toga does it to satisfy her desire to become other people, Kangaroo murders people solely for the thrill and her personal enjoyment.
  • Willfully Weak: She enjoys "playing" with her victims for as long as possible and is excited to find that Izuku can continually take her blows without being torn to pieces. As a result, she does things like play tag until Izuku knocks out her brother, upon which she goes full throttle and sends Izuku flying with her blows while threatening to skin him alive to use as fertilizer.
  • The Worf Barrage: After Mina melts his weapon with her acid, Frog-Man resorts to using his Quirk, Silver Tongue, to try and kill Izuku and Aoyama. Unfortunately for Frog-Man, Izuku's superior reflexes and Spider-Sense made it virtually impossible for Frog-Man to hit him, letting him close the distance and knock him out.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Frog-Man's laser rifle has the muzzle melted off by Mina's acid. It doesn't matter much since it quickly detonates soon afterward.
