"When it comes to protecting people in cities... a hero's job is complex and multifaceted. There's the actual rescuing... plus... dealing with enemies!! Can you really handle... both situations?"
Kugo Sakamata (逆俣空悟 Sakamata Kūgo?), also known as the hero Gang Orca, is the No. 10 pro hero. He was part of Best Jeanist's team who was tasked with securing the League of Villains' Nomu storehouse and a examiner playing as a villain in the Hero License Exam Arc.
Kugo is a tall, well-built man who possesses the features of a killer whale. His eyes are located on the white patches those animals usually have, showing large pupils surrounded by many red rings.
His costume consists of a plain white suit with a tie. He also wears an orca mask that doubles as a cape.
From what little appearance Kugo has so far, he appears to be friendly to his fellow heroes. He showed relief that Yawara Chatora was able to rescue Tomoko Shiretoko and friendly teased Tsunagu Hakamata when they talked about Katsuki Bakugo. Kugo is also incredibly confident in his abilities.
Kugo can also be menacing and ruthless when required, shown in his 'villain' persona. He is also not above lecturing others. While being an examiner himself, he has a persona that's very similar to a drill-sergeant. He will yell at his subjects, patronize and insult them, leaving no room for argument and decide over their heads. However he directs his persona only at those who he deems to need it and remains polite to everyone else.
After Katsuki Bakugo is captured by the League of Villains' Vanguard Action Squad, Alongside the top heroes All Might, Endeavor, Best Jeanist, and Edgeshot, Kugo other heroes are enlisted into the Hideout Raid Team and are ready to begin the strategy meeting.
Yu Takeyama destroys the front of the warehouse and she along with Yawara Chatora, Tsunagu, and Kugo infiltrate the partially destroyed warehouse and apprehend all the Nomus while Yawara rescues Tomoko Shiretoko. Tsunagu informs Naomasa Tsukauchi that the warehouse has been cleared. Suddenly, All For One appears and Kugo tells him not to move and stand where he is. Tsunagu restrains the villain with his Fiber Master. Before Tsunagu can act further, the warehouse is completely destroyed along with the surrounding area suffering damage.
Kugo survives thanks to Tsunagu's quick thinking. Later, Kugo recovers from the Kamino Incident.
Kugo plays the role of mastermind villain in the Second Exam of the Provisional Hero License Exam. Kugo has his thugs begin their attack on the examinees in order to disrupt their rescue maneuvers.
Kugo is later put in charge of the Hero Licensing Course for the students who failed the second phase of the Provisional Hero License Exam. Kugo passes all the students who took the course including Shoto Todoroki, Katsuki, Inasa Yoarashi, and Camie Utsushimi.
Quirk and Abilities
Orcinus: Kugo's Quirk gives him the abilities of a Killer Whale; he can even use these abilities on shore.
- Sonic Waves: Kugo creates an intense sound wave attack that can paralyze his opponent. The distance between Kugo and his target can strengthen or weaken the power of his attack.
Enhanced Strength: Kugo is physically strong thanks to his Quirk, seen as how he could beat a Nomu with his bare hands. Kugo is able to break Shoto Todoroki's ice with ease, and also destroy Inasa and Todoroki's combo attack with a roar.
Enhanced Speed: Kugo is surprisingly fast despite his stature, being able to close the distance between him and Shoto before the boy could act.
Weakness: Kugo is weak against dryness. To compensate, he carries a water bottle to soak himself.
- The character of Gang Orca was originally conceived through Sakamata of Oumagadoki Zoo, one of Kōhei's previous works. Fittingly, Orca's real family name is Sakamata.
- He was the second character to get this treatment, the first being Uwabami.
- Gang is ranked number 3 in the "Looks most like a villain" Ranking.
