Hanta Sero to his classmates in "After the Results..."

Hanta Sero ( () () (はん) () Sero Hanta?), also known as the Taping Hero: Cellophane, is a student at U.A. High School training to become a Pro Hero.


Hanta is a tall, lean young man with dark hair with spiked ends. He has black, almond-shaped eyes and very large teeth that usually dominate his grin. According to Katsuki Bakugo[1] and Midnight[2], Hanta has a plain face. His elbows have the shape of cylindrical tape dispensers, from which he fires his Tape Quirk from.

His hero costume consists of a black full body suit with white designs across his mid-torso area. The sleeves are left short so Hanta can effectively use his Quirk. He has white short bands around his waist and thighs and a large one across his chest and back connecting his shoulder pads. He also sports white boots with an orange trim. His sleeves end with a matching orange trim and he has two orange shoulder pads shaped like his elbows. He completes his outfit with a helmet similar in shape to a tape dispenser. 


Hanta is a very friendly person and has proven to be one of the more sociable members of Class 1-A. He can be loud and showy at times, often trying to impress his peers with his Quirk.

Oftentimes, Sero is the only person to call his classmates out when they are acting crazy. He is quite humorous and often takes part in making jokes with his classmates. However, when push comes to shove, Hanta is a brave hero in training who wishes to prosper on his own while helping others do the same. He easily makes friends with those around him and is shown to be a very laidback guy.



Tape (テープ Tēpu): Hanta's Quirk allows him to eject cellophane tape-like material from his elbows, as well as retract it. It appears to be somewhat sturdier than regular tape. He can wrap up people like rope, use it to swing large distances and create traps, among its other applications. Overusing his Quirk dries out his skin and causes a certain level of pain, seen by his grimace in many scenes.
