Hellflame (ヘルフレイム Heru Fureimu?)[1] is a fire-based Quirk that can generate and control fire at will. It is used by Enji Todoroki.


Hellflame is an extremely powerful Quirk that gives Enji pyrokinetic abilities.

Enji is able to generate large fire blasts to incinerate his opponents, as well as cover his body in flames. Changing the temperature of the flames is possible as well, which means that their damage output is capable of increasing or decreasing depending of Enji's wishes.[2] The anime adaptation shows that those flames can heat up to the point of turning blue.[3]

Hellflame will rise Enji's body temperature to dangerous levels if overused due to successive powerful attacks or drawn out battles, impairing his physical abilities.[4]


Enji has been shown using his flame bursts to increase the speed of his physical attacks or to hover in mid-air, which is done by releasing jets of fire from his soles.[5]

Various applications of Hellflame in action.

The anime shows more combat applications for Hellflame. Enji can shape his flames to function like various weapons and is able to heat up the soles of his feet to anchor himself to walls through molten footprints, allowing him to run along their surface. Burning down a target at a cellular level is possible for him as well, letting him bypass healing or regenerative Quirks.

Enji likes to keep his body in a flaming state, in order to look more imposing.

Named Techniques

  • Flashfire Fist - Jet Burn (赫灼熱拳 ジェットバーン Kaku Shakunetsu-ken Jettobān?): Enji shoots flames out the back of his fist to propel it forward and delivers a powerful blow to the enemy. This was first seen used against High-End.[5]
  • Flashfire Fist - Hell Spider (赫灼熱拳 ヘルスパイダー Kaku Shakunetsu-ken Herusupaidā?): Enji shoots streams of fire out of his fingers to burn his enemy. The flames take a form similar to a spider's web, hence the name. The flames are hot enough to burn through High-End's muscles.[6]
  • Prominence Burn (プロミネンスバーン Purominensubān?): Enji burns brightly and intensely before shooting out a beam of highly pressurized flame. This attack is strong enough to overwhelm High-End's Super Regeneration and to incinerate it. However, the creature survives by tearing off its own head.[7]
