Quirk and Abilities

Enhanced Strength: Even without activating his Quirk, Rikiya exhibits superhuman brawn, befitting his massive build. On two separate occasions he effortlessly burst through a wall and a locked gate, knocking several policemen up in the air while doing so, and casually damaged the jamb while readying his next punch.

Enhanced Durability: Rikiya was able to shrug off an attack from a weakened Nejire.


Vitality Stealing: Rikiya's Quirk allows him to inhale and absorb others' stamina (vitality) after touching them. He can also use the energy to increase his size. When enhanced by Trigger, Rikiya does not have to be touching his target.[3]


  • Rikiya's name contains the kanji for life ( katsu?), jar ( kame?), and power ( chikara?).
  • Rikiya seems to represent a corruption of the third tenet of the real eight precepts of Buddhism: abstain from sexual activity.
