Battle Hero "Gunhead" (バトルヒーロー ガンヘッド Batoru Hīrō Ganheddo?) is a Pro Hero, whose agency specializes in armed combat.[1]


Gunhead is a man with a heavy muscular figure and spiky, gray hair. In his hero costume, he wears a white mask with four holes that resemble gun muzzles. These holes have slight barrel stems pointing out, with the lower left hole chipped off, showing three stems and a hole. He dons dark gray pads that cover his neck to his shoulders over a black vest with no shirt underneath. He also wears brown pants, black boots, and his signature steel bracers, in the shape of a revolver chamber.[1]


Is that your boyfriend

Gunhead's cute persona when teasing Ochaco.

Gunhead is a very professional and friendly individual with values that make him a great teacher. In a fight, he's composed and fierce, but otherwise, he tends to be unexpectedly kind to people.

Ochaco Uraraka often notes how he has very cute tendencies like teasing her [2] and posing.[3]


Gunhead attended a meeting of Pro Heroes and the Police Force to discuss the situation of the unwilling civilians injected with Trigger.


Vs. Hero Killer Arc

Gunhead is first mentioned when Ochaco Uraraka tells her classmates she has chosen the Battle Hero's Office for her internship.[4]

On the first day of field training, Gunhead takes Ochaco out on patrol. He explains to her how heroes are and that his hero office specializes in clamping down on crime. They receive a commission based on their acts of heroics after they are called in by the police.[5]

Gunhead training Ochaco

Gunhead uses the next day to instruct Ochaco and others on a proper fighting form.[3] Later on after the Hosu City incident, Gunhead notices Ochaco on the phone speaking with Izuku Midoriya. He tells her another training session is about to begin and then teases her about talking to a boy.[6]

Later on, Gunhead trains Ochaco on fighting an opponent armed with a knife. She uses a fake dagger to attack Gunhead, but his movements are too fluid for her to hit him. He eventually takes Ochaco down, explaining how he did it all along the way.[7]

Once the internship comes to an end, Ochaco returns to school and tells her classmates that learning Gunhead's martial arts was very worthwhile.[8]

Internship Arc

Ochaco attempted to intern under him again, but he turned her down.


Gunhead Martial Arts (ガンヘッド マーシャル アーツ Ganheddo Māsharu Ātsu?): Gunhead is a highly capable martial artist and trained Uraraka to an impressive degree in only a week.


Gatling (ガトリング Gatoringu?): Gunhead's arm has gun-like organs which can shoot claw-like keratin mass bullets. This Quirk is very capable in short-range combat, so this Quirk is mainly used as suppressive fire.[9]
