The Capturing Weapon (捕縛武器 Hobaku Buki?) is a weapon used by Shota Aizawa and Hitoshi Shinso.

Description

Shota's Capturing Weapon is a cloth-like equipment made from carbon fibers and a special metal alloy.[1] Shota wears it around his neck at all times.

He is able to manipulate the weapon to ensnare his targets and immobilize them. He uses the weapon as a powerful combo with his Erasure Quirk and as a precaution for Mutant-type Quirk users who are immune to his nullification power.[2]

To use the Capturing Weapon in battle efficiently, Shota developed his fighting style: Binding Cloth style.[3] Shota Aizawa took five years to develop and master this style because he had to learn from scratch without a teacher.[4]

Trivia

  • It was noted by Shota that it took him 6 years to master the Capturing Weapon.
  • This weapon appears to react towards Shota's Erasure Quirk in a way similar to his hair, although it's unknown why this happens.
