"Anyway, all the panicking, all the planning in the eleventh hour... it just goes to show how persistent we all are. Everyone here today... is struggling to realize their dreams and goals. I'm not gonna judge them... for struggling so hard."
Yo has shaggy black hair, comparatively small eyes and a well-sculpted body. He is taller than Izuku and Katsuki. He usually has a smile on, whether it be nice or sinister looking.
His Hero Costume consists of a jaw-guard that covers his cheeks, plates that cover part of his chest and arm-guards that go up to his elbows. He also wears black pants with belts built in and black boots.
Yo appears to be a kindly and friendly person at first glance, but he hides a sinister and calculating personality behind the nice act. Yo can get very angry when people get in his way of action and affect him negatively.
Yo along with the rest of Ms. Joke's 2nd year class at Ketsubutsu Academy greet Class 1-A. He is later seen waiting with the other examinees while the exam is explained to them. During the First Exam, Yo uses his Quirk to completely destroy and alter the landscape of the battlefield.
Yo analyzes the situation after scattering Class 1-A with his earthquake; Class 1-A are weakened due to being scattered and half of his class are going after Class 1-A while other schools have hopped on the bandwagon. As a result, more and more conflicts are breaking out, making the situation messy. Yo's female classmate states that his plan to scatter them is backfiring. However, Yo is still satisfied because the end game of the First Exam is in motion and many examinees are wasting their energy going after Class 1-A and is happy that his class is fully aware of what is at stake. The female classmate comments on Yo's fake goody-goody act but Yo takes that as a compliment. Yo scorns the examinees for struggling to seize their dreams and ideals while stating that he is above such childish mentality.
