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.

Mount Lady

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 U.A'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.
