Daruma Ujiko (氏子達磨 Ujiko Daruma?) is the pseudonym of a villain affiliated with the League of Villains, later the Paranormal Liberation Front. He is a faithful servant of All For One and later Tomura Shigaraki as well.
Daruma is an old man of short stature. He is completely bald and has a very large mustache. He wears rather peculiar goggles. He looks very similar to Dr. Tsubasa, the doctor who told Izuku Midoriya that he was Quirkless and the grandfather of Tsubasa.
Daruma is an eccentric and deranged scientist, who dutifully follows All For One's will. Like Gigantomachia, he doesn't believe Tomura Shigaraki is yet worthy of succeeding All For One, but due to a compromise he made with his former master, he is willing to give Tomura the chance to prove him wrong. Once Tomura exceeded his expectations by defeating the Meta Liberation Army and getting Gigantomachia to submit, he accepted him as All for One's successor.
Daruma is very prideful of his Nomu creations, referring to them as "children" and regarding the High-End ones as "masterpieces". He treats Nomus as offerings for All For One, although he has allowed some of them to be used by Tomura under his former master's wishes.
Daruma is overly cautious and secretive about any information pertaining to his person, preferring to stay in anonymity and avoiding close contact with anyone (but All For One) under the threat of death. Because of this, he favors communicating through electronics instead of directly, doing the latter only in special occasions and through a Warping Quirk.
Overall Abilities: Daruma's abilities are largely unknown, but he appears to be a genius capable of creating numerous Nomu who are capable of using multiple Quirks.
Medical Expertise: Daruma was able to restore All For One to combat condition after his disastrous first battle with All Might.
