In his Hero Costume, he wears large headband with a yellow and black warning patterns. His shirt only covers his arms leaving most of his torso and abs visible, on each of his wrists he wears two heavy metal bracelets with the same color pattern as his headband on the sides and wears a light blue pants. His belt also has the same color pattern.


Death Arms is a serious person who dislikes rash actions since he scolded Izuku for attempting to save Katsuki.


A year prior to starting his teaching career Aizawa was called into a meeting with Best Jeanist, Manual, Death Arms, Snipe, 13, Endeavor, Air Jet, Midnight, Ingenium, and Gunhead, They were there with an unnamed police officer to speak about the unwilling civilians injected with Trigger. The officer explained that the people in question were more of victims than villains. Endeavor argued that any public use of a quirk is illegal and that they should treat them as villains and let the police investigate the backgrounds of future captures. He said this is the only way to protect the innocent while not risking themselves through hesitating every time they see a new enemy. All Might, who was not present, had his reply to the problem delivered by Naomasa. He stated that he would assess the situation at the scene more carefully because as heroes they must not bring harm to innocent citizens. This was in direct opposition to Endeavors answer greatly angering him.


Entrance Exam Arc

Death Arms guides civilians out of the area while other heroes are fighting a villain.

Later on, he is among the heroes who are trying to stop the mud villain who is controlling Katsuki Bakugo; but Desutegoro cannot do anything since the villain is too fluid. None of the heroes who are present can do something against the villain and Desutegoro clenches his fist in anger. As Desutegoro and the other heroes wait for a hero who is able to hurt the villain, Izuku Midoriya tries to help Katsuki. Desutegoro tries to stop him but Izuku does not listen to him. All of the Heroes then try to help him, but before they can do anything, All Might defeats the villain with one attack. Desutegoro and the other heroes then clean the area. He later scolds Izuku for his actions since he could have been killed.[1]

Sports Festival Arc

Sports Festival Security Guards

Desutegoro assigned as a security guard.

Having been assigned as security, Death Arms, Kamui Woods, and Mount Lady are seen outside the Sports Festival Stadium. Kamui Wood and Death Arms originally wanted to scout for talented individuals but they are not able to do that because of the guard duty.[2]

During the obstacle course of the festival, Desutegoro spotted Izuku Midoriya, the young man who purposely got himself involved with a villain and was amazed by his progress.[3]

Later, after the rules of the Human Cavalry Battle have been explained, Death Arms, Kamui Wood, and Mount Lady are in the break room and start discussing the Sports Festival. Death Arms says that the Sports Festival is all about preparing the young heroes for the real world of heroes and that the Obstacle Race was a way of showing that you need to kick down others to show what you are able to do. Mount Lady, after mentioning that she feels bad about having done that to Kamui Wood, mentions that Heroes need to work together in order to accomplish a goal and the Human Cavalry Battle is a good representation of that.[4]
