Snipe (スナイプ Sunaipu?) is a Pro Hero and a U.A. teacher.


He wears a brown cowboy hat which has a metallic plate with a stylized "S", a black and white sleeveless jumpsuit, orange calves, a yellow gas mask, light brown gloves over long black arm warmers, and a red cape. He has dark grey hair done into dreadlocks.

Under his cape he wears a black, sleeveless jumpsuit. Over it he wears a white vest that's connected by a belt. Snipe wears black arm guards and white gloves. He wears a white holster for his guns around his hips and white chaps on his legs. His boots are black.


Befitting his appearance, he speaks and behaves similar to a cowboy.


A year prior to starting his teaching career Eraserhead was called into a meeting with Best Jeanist, Manual, Deathtegoro, Snipe, 13, Endeavor, Buster Hero, Midnight, Ingenium, and Gunhead, They were there with an unnamed police officer to speak about the unwilling civilians injected with Trigger. The officer explained that the people in question were more of victims than villains. Endeavor argued that any public use of a quirk is illegal and that they should treat them as villains and let the police investigate the backgrounds of future captures. He said this is the only way to protect the innocent while not risking themselves through hesitating every time they see a knew enemy. All Might, who was not present, had his reply to the problem delivered by Naomasa. He stated that he would assess the situation at the scene more carefully because as heroes they must not bring harm to innocent citizens. This was in direct opposition to Endeavors answer greatly angering him.

Conference Room as Naomasa Tsukauchi informs them about being unable to find anything about the supposed leader of the Villain Alliance, Shigaraki, and Kurogiri. Snipe then says that they basically got nothing to go on and notes that Shigaraki will likely come after them again after his gunshot wounds are healed. After All Might analyses Shigaraki's behavior and concludes that he is some kind of "man child", Tsukauchi notes that all of the villains who were apprehended were third-rate thugs and followed Shigaraki without question, possibly because they felt attracted to his child like mindset.[2]

In the Staff Room, he sees Shouta Aizawa with documents and notices that it's on-the-job training time.
