It's about living without regret. That's what chivalry is to me!
Crimson Riot in "Red Riot (Part 2)"

Chivalrous Hero: Crimson Riot (紅頬権斗 Kōkyō Raioto?) is a Pro Hero and also is the idol and inspiration of Eijiro Kirishima, whose hero name, Red Riot, pays homage to the pro.[1]

Appearance

Crimson Riot is a sturdy man with spiky, red hair jutting forwards in one place and backwards in two.

He wears a metal, three-piece mask over his mouth and nose, and a crimson outfit with a long, red cape, the collar very high and wide and the edges ripped.

Personality

Crimson Riot seems to be a hero with a very strong will who believes that willpower is more important than one's Quirk, stating, "As long as you have a manly spirit, it doesn't matter what kind of Quirk you have."[2] Though this may appear that Crimson Riot is putting aside women in his philosophy or discriminating them in any sort of way, he clearly states that for him the word "manly" refers purely to a state of mind, essentially determination and courage, and therefore isn't gender specific and can be found as much in men than women.

Crimson Riot is haunted by an incident early in his career where his momentary hesitation led to civilian deaths. As a result of this traumatic experience, Crimson Riot became more fearful of watching innocent people die than of dying himself. Ironically, heroics fueled by this fear gave him a reputation as a fearless hero who always charged headfirst into danger without hesitation.[3]

Synopsis
