To carve my name in history, for future generations! So that going forward, someone out there... will give a moment's thought to the way I lived, and aspire to it. And this dream is no longer mine alone. Today marks my first step towards true infamy. My dream would be trifling indeed if you words could move me to abandon my course! As you are a U.A. student... I assume you can comprehend... my penchant to dream.Danjuro explaining his goals to Izuku Midoriya in "School Festival Start!!"
Danjuro Tobita (飛田 弾柔郎 Tobita Danjūrō?), also known as Gentle Criminal (ジェントル・クリミナル Jentoru Kuriminaru?), is an independent villain and an internet celebrity. He is the main antagonist of the U.A. School Festival Arc.
Danjuro is a man with a refined appearance. He has a slicked back hairdo with a curl at the front and sports a handlebar mustache along with a well-kept, medium-sized beard.
Danjuro's clothes are also quite extravagant, featuring a dark purple jacket with enlarged collars and coattails, a pair of loose pinstriped pants and two belts. He also wears a pair of cuffs and a woolly scarf. He is seen using a cane to walk.
Befitting his alias, Danjuro is a polite and well-mannered person, even while committing villainous acts. He is slightly controlling of the way he wants his crimes to play out and is not afraid of facing multiple heroes, showing an unusual amount of calmness and confidence. His mannerisms may also seem slightly over-the-top and eccentric. One of his more common theatrics is to pour coffee or tea into a cup while holding the kettle way over his head and spilling it everywhere.
Danjuro has little to no interest in money or objects of value. Instead, he chases after fame and reputation which he tries to achieve through video recordings of his criminal acts. He claims that his ultimate goal is to write his name in history and inspire others who view his actions, and is obsessed with achieving it, as he fears to fade into obscurity after his death. He is admittedly very selfish and claims to not being afraid of trampling on the dreams of others as long as it furthers his own; however, he does have a soft spot for his fan and crime partner La Brava and is capable of being self-sacrificing for her sake.
Overall Abilities: Gentle is a competent fighter, as he was able to swiftly defeat a group of Pro Heroes by himself, although his opponents seemed to be below average for Pro Heroes. He was also able to overpower Izuku Midoriya, one of the strongest students at U.A. High School, a few times during their battle, despite the latter going all out and using the extent of his abilities. After the losing the battle, Izuku admitted that out of all the battles he has fought, the one with Gentle was the most difficult. This is mostly due to Izuku not wanting to fight him, and was sympathizing with Gentle throughout their battle.
Keen Intellect: Danjuro has proven himself to be highly intelligent, able to develop a nearly-successful plan to break into the U.A. School Festival despite the heavy security measures taken to prevent villain attacks. He was only prevented from making it into the festival due to a chance run-in with Izuku. His creative use of his quirk also suggests high intelligence.
- Gently Rebound (ジェントリーリバウンド Jentorī Ribaundo?): Danjuro creates an aerial elastic barrier and after an enemy runs into it, the enemy is blasted away.
- Gently Trampoline (ジェントリートランポリン Jentorī Tranporin?): Danjuro turns the ground into elastic and causes the enemy to bounce into the air after standing on it. Danjuro can also use this move to bounce himself through the air as a means of air travel.
- Gently Sandwich (ジェントリーサンドイッチ Jentorī Sandoitchi?): Danjuro creates a series of aerial elastic barriers and pins an opponent under them.
- Knife: Danjuro wields an elaborate knife that he uses for robberies.
