Chivalrous Hero: Fourth Kind (任侠ヒーロー フォースカインド Ninkyō Hīrō Fōsu Kaindo?)[2] is a Pro Hero.


Fourth Kind is a large, wide-set man with, as a result of his Quirk, four big arms. He has a buzzed, grayish-brown hair and small but wide eyes with no eyebrows, although the skin where they’d be is notably heavy and defined. His teeth are prominently straight, and he also has a stitched scar running diagonally over his left eye.

His hero costume consists of a plain black suit (altered to include four sleeves) with a cyan-colored tie, three yellow diamonds patterning it down the centre, and a thick gold ring on each of his twenty fingers. His jaw also appears to be made of metal, or at least have a metal casing, as with his neck.


Fourth Kind is a strict professional who didn't cut Eijiro Kirishima or Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu any slack during their internships.[3] Any small infraction deeply upset Fourth Kind, who would reprimand the young men by hitting them.[4] Tetsutetsu feared Fourth Kind's impatience would lead to punishment when Eijiro made them late one day.[5]


Vs. Hero Killer Arc

Fourth Kind first appears when Eijiro and Tetsutetsu meet at his agency for their Hero Agency Internships. The Chivalrous Hero explains his agency put in two offers because he was impressed with the guts they both showed at the sports festival. He informs them that they can't be heroes with force alone, but they interrupt him while he's talking so he yells for them both to be quiet. Then he goes on to explain the mechanisms of his salary and they're his office's practical operations.[6]

Fourth Kind punishment

Fourth Kind harshly mentors Eijiro and Tetsutetsu

Later on, he has both of them make him tea. When he tastes that it's too warm, Fourth Kind gets angry and punches both of them while their Quirks are active. He tells them that the tea needs to impress their clients, and then says it's satisfying to hit the interns' Quirks, while hiding that his hands hurt due the bonk.[4]

After the incident in Hosu, Fourth Kind catches Eijiro and Tetsutetsu coming in late. He angrily hits them and reminds them of the importance of punctuality.[7] He also takes the boys to do community service by cleaning up a local park because he considers that part of being a hero. Seeing the little enthusiasm of his trainees, Fourth Kind admonishes them, which makes Eijiro and Tetsutetsu work more intensely.[8]

He is mentioned by Eijiro, who attempted to intern under him again, but he was busy.
