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

Mashirao Ojiro ( () (じろ) (ましら) () Ojiro Mashirao?) is a student at U.A. High School from Class 1-A training to become a Pro Hero.


Mashirao has blond hair, very small black 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.

During the Provisional Hero License Exam Arc, his costume had a slight upgrade, and it now includes navy blue finger-less gloves.



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.

Along with a strong sense of dignity, Mashirao can be described as sheepish and bashful, not very often enjoying the spotlight and being easily embarrassed. However, has also been shown to be very sweet and humble, as he is a very caring and empathetic person when it comes to the emotions and well-being of other people. He is also very sensitive and soft-hearted, having his feelings be hurt very easily, such as when his room is called "Normal," as it upsets him to an extent.


Hand-to-Hand Combat: Mashirao 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.


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.
