Bat Villain (コウモリヴィラン Kōmori Viran?)[3] is a member of the Villain Factory's Next-Level Villains from Vigilante - My Hero Academia: Illegals.


Bat Villain is a tall man with pointed ears, sharp teeth and black hair, swept backwards at the top and shaved around the sides. His arms are darker than the rest of his body, and he has a pair of large bat wings attached underneath them.

He wears a sleeveless full-body suit, a belt with a central buckle around his waist, and a dark translucent visor.

Under the effects of the Trigger, his skin becomes completely dark, his ears get bigger, his hair becomes shorter and a small mass of hair grows on his back.


Bat Villain is a mocking person and proud of his speed, mocking the speed of Ingenium by saying "turtle".

He also seems to be vengeful, since he was looking directly for Koichi Haimawari for having defeated him before.



Overall Abilities: Bat Villain has proven to be a rather formidable combatant. He was not only able to evade being captured by the Turbo Hero: Ingenium, thrice, but was able to repel the Pro Hero during their first and third encounter. During their second confrontation, Bat Villain was nearly blindsided by the safety blockade that Ingenium had prepared, and was forced to flee by flying. It took the quick intervention of the Naruhata Vigilantes to successfully apprehend the Bat Villain. Since the Bat Villain evaded Ingenium a third time, and went after Koichi Haimawari, it took Captain Celebrity capitalizing on Bat Villain's slowing down in order to defeat him once and for all.

  • Enhanced Speed: Bat Villain's most prominent trait is his incredible speed, which is enough to rival the soles of of the notoriously fast Ingenium.[4] After being transformed into Next-Level Villain, Bat Villain's speed was enhanced even further, allowing him to outpace Ingenium even more than he did in the previous battles. Captain Celebrity notes that Bat Villain's newly enhanced speed had rivaled his own.
  • Enhanced Smell: Bat Villain has an incredible sense of smell, which he used to identify Koichi. It is unknown if he had this aspect before or after he was transformed into a Next-Level Villain.

Tactical Intellect: Bat Villain has shown to be very observant and analytical of his opponents. When he encountered Ingenium a second time, and the Turbo Hero was able to match his speed with him, the Bat Villain deduced that Ingenium had removed some excess weight in order to keep up with the winged villain, which was proven true as Ingenium had removed his airbags form his hero costume. Afterwards, Bat Villain immediately realized that Team Idaten formed a net of teams in order to capture him, but the winged villain was able to swiftly evade them.


  • Unnamed Bat Quirk: Bat Villain has an unnamed Quirk that gives him bat wings.[5] After his body is modified and he is enhanced by Trigger, his whole body became bat-like.
