"I know this is a great opportunity. And I know how stupid it must seem to throw it away... but this final tournament... everyone else made it here by their own strength. Yet I'm standing here, and I don't even know how or why. I just can't take it."

Mashirao Ojiro quitting the U.A. Sports Festival in "Smile, Prince of Nonsense Land!"

Mashirao Ojiro (尾白猿夫 Ojiro Mashirao?) is a student at U.A. High School from Class 1-A training to become a Pro Hero.

Appearance

Mashirao has blond hair, very small eyes, a muscular build, and a large tail with a hairy tip. Unlike most students, he wears silver-colored sneakers instead of brown shoes in his uniform.

Mashirao's Hero costume is a white karate-like outfit with a partially furred collar and a hole behind for his tail.

Personality

Mashirao has a very calm and noble attitude as well as a very deep sense of dignity, which prevents him from accepting results that he doesn't feel were earned with his own abilities. He is also described as a hard worker.[1]

He is sometimes considered to be "plain", which upsets him to an extent.

Quirk and Abilities

Tail (尻尾 Shippo?): Mashirao's Quirk gives him a strong, sturdy tail. He is incredibly adept at using it, having demonstrated creative abilities, such as whipping it down against the ground to give himself a speed boost.

Hand-to-Hand Combat: Ojiro mostly relies on hand-to-hand combat during battles and given his epithet, it can be assumed that he is a highly capable combatant. He also makes use of his Quirk during close quarters combat.
