PHIt's about living without regret. That's what chivalry is to me!
Crimson Riot is a man with spiky, red hair and wears a mouth protection mask. He wears a red 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 have a manly spirit, it doesn't matter what kind of Quirk you have."
Crimson Riot is haunted by an incident early in his career where his momentary hesitation leads 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.
When Class 1-A selects their hero names, Eijiro Kirishima chooses the name "Red Riot". Midnight notices the similarities between Eijiro and the Pro Hero, and Eijiro states that the name pays homage. Eijiro mentions that although he was old school, Crimson Riot was a man among heroes.
