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


Crimson Riot is a man with spiky, light-colored hair and he wears a mouth protection mask. He wears a light-colored outfit with a long collar and a cape.


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 got a manly spirit, then quirks don't count for nothing."

Crimson Riot is haunted by an incident early in his career where his momentary hesitation lead 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.
