Nejire Hado (波動ねじれ Hadō Nejire?) is a third-year student at U.A. High and is part of The Big 3.


Nejire is a pale girl of average height with wide, curious eyes, her upper eyelashes long and thick, and her irises a royal blue where her pupils are white. Her hair is a soft baby blue, which can sometimes appear to be tinted slightly lavender, and it reaches all the way down to her knees, twisting around itself at her waist and curving inwards around her legs. She has sideswept bangs, tucked behind her ears on the right and hanging just over her eyes on the left, and two short clumps of hair on either side of her face, curved towards her face on the right and behind it, under her ear, on the left. According to the boys in her class, she’s more of the “cute kind” than the “sexy kind”.

She wears a waistcoat in place of the normal U.A. blazer with her school uniform, like Kyoka Jiro occasionally does.

Her hero costume consists of a royal blue skin-tight bodysuit, with a high black collar, pale mint green markings covering her torso from over her shoulders to between her legs, framed with turquoise, a matching stripe of the same two colors around both of her upper arms. On her feet, she wears a pair of knee-high boots, a thinning flap buttoned on each thigh, with turquoise spirals around her ankles, matching the ones above her yellow gauntlets and wrist guards. She has a black strap around the top of each thigh, two small sachels attached, and two blue spiral horns on her head, which could possibly be her hair, shaped as they are to reference her Quirk.



Nejire is talkative and endlessly curious, showing interest in other people's unique physical features and being easily distracted by them.[1] Due to this, Nejire can be very blunt, often asking rather invasive or off-putting questions. Horikoshi describes her as an affectionate person and a "free spirit," someone who has a genuine passion for learning new and strange things and isn't afraid to speak her mind or show how she feels. She is mentioned to act like a kindergartner due to her childish glee.

Nejire talking enthusiastically about Mirio's Quirk.

She is very enthusiastic, affable and cheery, and is always seen moving. She does not seem very concerned for Tamaki when she learns of his attack, possibly due to having a more optimistic view than everyone else. Thanks to her inquisitive and chatty demeanor, she is a notably level-headed individual, though she comes off as an "airhead" most of the time.



Wave Motion ( () (どう) Hadō?): Nejire's Quirk allows her to convert her vitality into pure energy and to release this energy in the form of shockwaves. This also extends to her longer lifespans and quick healing. Her vitality is not affected when using the energy attack, only her stamina was being used.
