"I swear on my name, Vine... that the schemers will be judged."

Ibara Shiozaki in "Quaotic Quirkstravaganza"

Ibara Shiozaki ( (しお) (ざき) (いばら) Shiozaki Ibara?) is a student at U.A. High School training to become a Pro Hero.

Her Hero Costume consists of a plain white robe and black knee-high boots.


Ibara Shiozaki personality

Ibara displaying her humble nature

Ibara is a very modest and courteous person who first makes her humility clear after Present Mic calls her an assassin. Although graceful and soft-spoken, she is not afraid to make her pure intentions known. She seems to be of a highly religious inclination, due to her talking about heaven and divine beings in passing on multiple occasions, and her super moves having somewhat religious names, such as "Faith's Shield" and "Crucifixion".

Despite initially seeming very pure and kind, Ibara shows an unexpected vindictive side, best demonstrated in the Joint Training Arc, with her harsh judgement of Class 1-A and her telling Jurota Shishida that she hoped the "fires of hell" would relieve him of his sins.

She showed her gratitude after receiving a second chance to participate in the U.A. Sports Festival and made her objective to spread well across the world apparent before her fight with Denki.[2] Ibara also prefers to be fair and square, as she disagreed with Neito Monoma's plan to throw the Obstacle Race and placed fourth instead. She also found her teammates "sinful".



Vines (ツル Tsuru?): This Quirk allows her to grow vines on her head which she can extend, attack, and grab with. She also has the ability to detach them at will.

Super Moves

  • Via Dolorosa (ヴィアドロローサ Via Dororōsa?): Ibara covers an entire area with her vines, trapping anything that touch them.
  • Crucifixion (磔刑 (クルセフィクション) Kurusefikushon?): Ibara uses her vines to trap her opponent in a ball of vines suspended in the air to restrict their movement. The shape resembles that of a rubber band ball. She uses this move on Denki to insulate him, rendering him unable to discharge his quirk.
  • Faith's Shield (信仰の盾 (フェイスズシールド) Feisuzu Shīrudo?): Ibara swiftly uses creates a wall of vines to protect herself before detaching the vines. She used it as a second line of defense against Denki.
