The Eight Expendables (鉄砲玉 八斎衆 Teppōdama Hassaishū?) is a group of Yakuza who are part of Shie Hassaikai. The members consist of men who have lost their dignity and reason to live, therefore, they joined Overhaul as a means of having a reason to live. Despite, or perhaps because of this, the Eight Expendables are all powerful Yakuza with dangerous and resourceful Quirks.

Eight Expendables


  • In Buddhism, the Eight Precepts are set of strict moral guidelines to be followed by the most serious of adherents. Each of the eight expendables can in some way be related to a Precept through their Quirk or their personality.
    • 1. Kendo Rappa - Avoid killing, directly or indirectly. (Kendo's bloodthirsty nature and excitement for fights is in direct conflict with this precept.)
    • 2. Toya Setsuno - Avoid stealing and taking things without the permission of their owner. (Toya's Quirk allows him to steal things from opponents.)[1]
    • 3. Yu Hojo - Avoid wearing jewelry, perfume, and make-up. Avoid singing, dancing or playing music with attachment. (Yu's Quirk can be related to jewelry.)[1]
    • 4. Soramitsu Tabe - Avoid eating more than one meal that day. (Soramitsu's Quirk allows him to eat and digest almost anything.)[2]
    • 5. Hekiji Tengai - which forbids taking shelter and resting under a luxurious canopy.(Hekiji's Quirk allows him to to make a shelter to protect himself.)[3]
    • 6. Rikiya Katsukame - Avoid sexual contact. (Rikiya's Quirk saps life force through physical contact and his main opponents are Ryukyu's all-female team.)[4]
    • 7. Shin Nemoto - Avoid lying and deceiving others. (Shin's Quirk disallows others from violating this precept, allows him to be the only one in the room who can tell lies.)[5]
    • 8. Deidoro Sakaki - Avoid toxicants: alcohol, tobacco and drugs, except for medical purposes. (Deidoro's Quirk causes others to enter a state similar to intoxication. Sakaki is also an alcoholic.)[6]
