Mount Lady

Kamui does not think that Mount Lady is empathetic when she mercilessly stole his fame. Later, they work together along with Death Arms as security guards during U.A's Sports Festival, where he questions whether she has any sense of shame or pride when she successfully was able to acquire an order of takoyaki for free from a vendor. After the Denki Kaminari vs. Ibara Shiozaki fight, Mount Lady teases that Kamui has a similar Quirk to Ibara Shiozaki's.
