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 ( () (てん) 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: Being a top member of the Meta Liberation Army,[5] and the now unified Paranormal Liberation Front, Geten has proven himself to be a highly formidable individual. The ice warrior stated that he had spent most of his life honing his Meta Ability, Ice Manipulation, demonstrating his handling by creating various, sophisticated ice constructs as well as using his ice to launch or lift himself through the air in order to outmaneuver his opponents.[6] He can also infuse his ice into water sources, and by lowering the temperatures, Geten's control over his Meta Ability is drastically expanded. His abilities also garnered praise from Re-Destro, who regards Geten as a valuable asset to the Meta Liberation Army.

During the Revival Celebration, Geten was able to hide his presence, implying he has some stealth skills, and ambush League of Villains member Dabi,[7] a powerful villain in his own right, who admitted he was barely able to dodge Geten's surprise attack, and could at a glance realize that Geten is a strong opponent.[6] The elemental users clashed and seemed evenly matched, until Dabi, having a Quirk-type advantage, melted all of Geten's ice. However, Geten surprised the pyrokinetic once again by obliterating a mass quantity of Twice's clone army, before revealing both his unscathed chassis and ability to manipulate the temperatures of ice. After taking out more of Twice's clones, some M.L.A. members, and another significant portion of Deika City, Mr. Compress, awestruck by the mass destruction Geten can cause, labeled the cryokinetic as the greatest threat to the League of Villains.[1] For the rest of the battle, a full-power Geten and a skin-charring Dabi continued to fight on par with each other, until they began to exhaust themselves from overusing their powers.[8][9] The bout was eventually cut short when Gigantomachia arrived in the city, causing Geten to abandon the battle in an attempt aid Re-Destro and subdue the behemoth, but to no avail, as Gigantomachia effortlessly swatted Geten away.[10]

At the Gunga Mountain Villa, Geten singlehandedly suppressed a large number of Pro Heroes, including Mt. Lady,[11] but he was soon ambushed by Cementoss, compelling Re-Destro to aid the ice wielder.[12]

Tactical Intellect: Geten is very well versed in tactical warfare and comes to every fight with a solid strategy. When he confronted Dabi, Geten knew that the blue flames make Dabi the only wide-range combatant of the League of Villains, before inquiring as to why he didn't activate his Quirk. Despite his inquiry, Geten was fully aware aware of Dabi undergoing a cooldown period before he had to use his flames again.[6] Geten was also able to expertly exploit Dabi's arrogance and alleged Quirk-type advantage by pretending to be defeated, and then returning the battlefield, uninjured. And having noticed and smelled Dabi's festering skin, Geten pointed out Dabi can't fight for prolonged periods of time when using his foames, which are eating away at the flame villain's body.[1]

  • Leadership Skills: Befitting his position as the Paranormal Liberation Front's Co-commander of the Violet Regiment, Geten exhibited palpable leadership qualities. During the siege on the Mountain Villa, Geten actively ordered members of the faction in a strategy to counteract the heroes' assault.[4]

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. This Meta Ability has also shown to be incredibly versatile, as Geten can freely gather, move, attack with and defend with the ice he manipulates.[6] At one point in the past, Geten underwent an Awakening, granting him the application of altering the temperature of the ice he wields, thus allowing him to freeze any water in his radius of control.[13][1]

While this Meta Ability is strong, he can only manipulate ice, and is thus unable to create it. In addition Geten is limited by how much water and/or ice is in the vicinity, leaving him at a disadvantage in areas wherein these elements are absent.
