In the future that our liberation army foresees... one's rank in society will be directly tied to the strength of one's Meta Ability. Elevating one's ability will be the only way to really live! Beyond that sheer strength... life has no value!
Geten to Dabi in "Sad Man's Parade"

Geten (外典 Geten?), dubbed Iceman (氷男 Kо̄riotoko?) by Mr. Compress, is a Villain and was a member of the Meta Liberation Army. Later, the Liberation Army and League of Villains came together to form the Paranormal Liberation Front, and he becomes one of its nine lieutenants.

He currently serves as a leader for the "Vanguard Action Guerilla Warfare Regiment: Violet" along with Dabi.[3]


Under his hood, Geten appears to possess pale, messy hair of varying lengths and light-colored eyes that are framed by a set of long eyelashes that are somewhat the same color of his hair. His eyes apparently glow even when the rest of his face is hidden in shadow.

Geten is clad in a thick, dark-colored parka that reaches down below his knees, done up in the center with seven white buttons, with a fur-lined hood that covers his face from view. He also sports black baggy pants and a pair of lace-up winter boots.


Geten is a loyal warrior of the Liberation Army and is a devout believer in its principles. He feels greatly indebted and thankful to Re-Destro for granting him more power and desires to create a world where the strongest superpowers stand at the top of the hierarchy.

Geten has been shown to become greatly angered whenever anyone gets in Re-Destro's way, yelling out to the "dogs of the state" who face him in the Gunga Mountain Villa raid that they won't die painless deaths for interrupting his leader's plans.[4]

The ice villain is very proud of his Meta Ability and claims he has been honing it for years. He is not focused on becoming a hero and never attended school; instead, he's lived his life by constantly training his abilities under the belief that one's greatest worth is the strength of their power.


Overall Abilities: Re-Destro regards Geten as a valuable asset to the Meta Liberation Army. The ice warrior claims to have spent his entire life mastering his Meta Ability, demonstrating this by creating various sophisticated ice constructions as well as using his ice to launch or lift himself through the air in order to outmaneuver his opponents. Dabi, who is a powerful villain in his own right, was able to tell at a glance that Geten is a strong opponent. He was also able to catch Dabi off guard and completely hide his presence on the battlefield. However, Geten was no match for the behemoth Gigantomachia who swatted him away with little effort.

High Tactical Intellect: Geten is very well versed in tactical warfare and comes to every fight with a solid strategy. When tasked with dealing with Dabi's flames, Geten was accurately able to deduce that Dabi's own flames weakened his body. Additionally, during the siege on the Mountain Villa, Geten actively ordered members of the faction in a strategy to counteract the heroes' assault.

Meta Ability

Ice Manipulation Quirk

Geten's powerful Meta Ability.

Unnamed Ice Manipulation Quirk: Geten's Meta Ability allows him to freely manipulate any and all nearby ice. The range of this power extends to roughly the size of a whole town. He cannot create any ice himself, however, he is able to alter the temperature of the ice he controls, thus allowing him to freeze any water in his radius of control.

This Meta Ability has been shown to be incredibly versatile when used well, as Geten can freely gather, move, attack with and defend with the ice he manipulates, and the only known drawback to this ability is that it is limited by how much water/ice is in the vicinity, leaving him at a disadvantage in terrains with less of these substances.
