"We'd given up on life, y'see!! When we tried to kill ourselves by leaping to our deaths... a hero caught us! Can ya imagine our despair?! We didn't see the point in living anymore! There's no way you'd understand!"

Setsuno to Tamaki Amajiki in "Suneater of the Big Three"

Toya Setsuno (窃野トウヤ Setsuno Tōya?) is one of the Eight Expendables who works for Shie Hassaikai.


Setsuno Face

Setsuno's unmasked face.

Toya is a lean young man who has light hair with bangs that cover the right side of his face. His eyes have prominent dark circles around them and he wears a beak-shaped mask that is commonly worn by members of Shie Hassaikai.


Toya is a very fanatic and outspoken man, possibly as a result of the tragic events that happened in his past. The fact that Toya once attempted to commit suicide points to him being mentally unstable and unable to move on.

Toya, as well as the other members of the Eight Expendables, are all hopeless people who have lost their dignity and no longer see any purpose in continuing to live, thus they are completely devoted to Shie Hassaikai and are not afraid of giving away their lives for the group. Toya believes that their status as "human garbage" is what allowed them to form a strong friendship that tied them all together.


At one point in his life, Toya was cheated and betrayed by a lover and as a result was incurred with great debt.[1] Toya then attempted to commit suicide by jumping off a cliff, but was rescued by a Hero before he could perish. This left him in complete despair.[2]

Setsuno was eventually found by Chisaki in the streets, with the yakuza offering him the opportunity to become his subordinate. With nowhere else to go, Toya accepted and became one of the Eight Expendables.

When Hojo is ready to finish Tamaki, he counterattacks and defeats all three at once.

Quirk and Abilities

Larceny (窃盗 Settō?): Toya is capable of instantly moving objects in the possession of someone directly into his hands, in a manner similar to teleportation.[3] However, the limits to his Quirk depend on the size of what he can steal,[4] which must also be within his sight.[5]

Equipment and Weapons

Katana: Toya is armed with a traditional Japanese katana, which he uses in combat.[6]

Knife: Toya carries a hidden knife on the beak of his mask, which he can use for emergencies or surprise attacks.[7]



When Toya was cheated by his lover and incurred with debt, he hopelessly struggled through life until Overhaul saved him, offering Toya a chance to have worth.[8] Toya greatly respects Overhaul and will kill anyone who gets in his leader's way.


  • Toya's name contains the kanji for stealing ( setsu?).
  • Toya seems to represent a corruption of the second tenet of the real eight precepts of Buddhism: do not steal.
