"Illegal use of abilities during rush hour, as well as robbery and assault? You're pure evil."

Kamui Woods to the Giant Villain in "Izuku Midoriya: Origin"

Shinji Nishiya[1] (西屋森児 Nishiya Shinji?), also known by his hero name Kamui Woods (シンリンカムイ Shinrin Kamui?) is a Pro Hero.


Kamui Woods' face is unknown since he has only been shown wearing his Hero Costume, a black unitard with a wood helmet, wooden gloves that reach past his forearm, a wooden belt, and wooden shoes.


Kamui Woods is a very serious and focused person when it comes to his hero duties; however, he gets easily depressed when someone takes his glory or credit.


Entrance Exam ArcEdit

Kamui Woods is introduced confronting a "monster form" quirk villain user. Reading out his charges, he asks the villain to step down. Kamui then uses Lacquered Chains Prison to stop his movement. When Mount Lady intervenes in the fight, Kamui is taken by surprise. After the enemy is stopped, Kamui is let down since Mount Lady takes all the fame.[2]

Unforeseen Simulation Joint ArcEdit

Sports Festival Security Guards

Kamui Woods assigned as a security guard.

He along with Mount Lady were having trouble dealing with Vihara Headgear, as he was holding hostages, that was until All Might showed up and had beaten him and saved the hostages. Although he and Mount Lady were grateful, they complained that he'll put them out of a job.[3]

Sports Festival ArcEdit

Kamui is seen outside the Sports Festival, having been assigned to guard the security, together with Mount Lady and Deathgoro. He says that he would like to watch and scout new talents, even though he can't.

Hideout Raid ArcEdit

Kamui joins the Police Force and many Pro Heroes in the rescue operation to save Katsuki Bakugou.[4] All Might breaks into the hideout with Kamui Wood swinging in and restrains the League of Villains with his Lacquered Chains Prison.[5]

The League of Villains escape due to All For One's intervention. After the dozens of Noumus are defeated by the Pro Heroes, Kamui Woods along with Endeavor and Edge Shot go to All Might's location where he is battling All For One. Kamui Woods, rescues the heavily injured Mount Lady, Best Jeanist and Gang Orca. Kamui Woods tells Mount Lady that she did well.[6]

Quirk and AbilitiesEdit

Lumber: Kamui's Quirk allows him to control the wood on his body.

  • Lacquered Chains Prison: Kamui Woods shoots out the wood from one of his arms and surrounds the enemy with it to immobilize them. This move is first used against an unknown enemy in Chapter 1.

Battle Trial ArcEdit


Mount LadyEdit

Kamui does not think that Mount Lady is empathetic when she mercilessly stole his fame. Later, they work together along with Deathgoro as security guards during Yuuei's Sports Festival. After the Denki Kaminari vs. Ibara Shiozaki fight, Mount Lady teases that Kamui has a similar Quirk to Ibara Shiozaki's. During the raid on the League of Villains hideout, Kamui Woods rescues Mount Lady and tells her that she did well.


Kamui seems to have a better relationship with him than with Mount Lady.


  • Kamui Woods fighting style seems to be based off of Spider Man
