"Eat!! Eat!! Eat!! Eat!!"
Tabe wears a ragged burlap mask that covers his entire head and is held by a rope knot located around his neck. The mask has two openings from were his eyes are visible and a stitched Glasgow smile.
Tabe appears to be insane and is obsessed with eating. His Quirk and personality made it difficult for him to conform into society.
Tabe, 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 the Eight Precepts of Death and are not afraid of giving away their lives for the group. He values his fellow Expendables as genuine friends due to him relating to their similar tragic past and lack of worth. This friendship proves to be very strong as he was not willing to eat Hojo despite his dedication to Chisaki and willingness to kill anyone who gets in their way.
After Irinaka throws Sir's group in a underground hall, Tabe appears alongside Setsuno and Hojo to confront the heroes and the police-officers, Tamaki says that he'll fight them alone and delcares that they're just time-eating pawns. Setsuno Tries to use his Quirk to steal the officers guns but Eraserhead stops him erasing his Quirk, Hojo pulls out his gun, but before he can use it Tamaki jumps and use his tentacles to disarm and imobilize the three at the same time, he them tell the others to go ahead and let the three to him.
Setsuno jumps on Tamaki using the knife hiden on his mask, injuring one of his tentacles, Hojo breaks free and attacks Tamaki with his Crystallization but Tamaki defends successfully, he uses his Chimera Kraken to fight but Tabe wakes and starts to eat Tamaki's tentacles on by one, he tries to poison him with the poison on his tentacles but Setsuno uses his Quirk again to steal it. Whem Hojo it's ready to finish Tamaki, he counterattacks and defeats all three at once.
Quirk and Abilities
Chisaki saved him and gave him a chance to have worth. Tabe has a strong respect for Chisaki and will kill anyone who gets in his leader's way, willing to risk his life for him.
- His name is a homonym for the stem of the Japanese verb "to eat", "taberu".
- He seems to represent a corruption of the sixth tenant of the real eight precepts of Buddhism: only eat at the proper time (that is, after sunrise, but before noon).
