High-End resembles other Nomu with a large, muscular build but with a comparatively long neck. His head is shrouded in darkness by a hood of skin and the muscles on neck and shoulder are exposed.
Underneath his hood his face consists entirely of an exposed brain, distorted eyes and a mouth that is full of long, jagged teeth.
High-End openly shows signs of obedience and loyalty to his master. He speaks with a stutter and broken grammar, and is disturbingly eager to fight strong opponents.
High-End flies to the restaurant where Hawks and Endeavor are meeting, and smashing through the window, the Nomu asks which of them is the strongest. Endeavor sees that the rumors were true and is glad that this was well timed. High-End prepares to attack but Endeavor takes the initiative and punches High-End out of the building. High-End's right hand, which was gripping the wall, is torn off and left clinging to the wall. Endeavor flies outside and prepares to confront the creature.
High-End mocks Endeavor's attempt to hurt him as he begins regenerating the damage and regrows his right hand. As Endeavor launches another attack, High-End evades with a quick burst of flight and grabs Endeavor; throwing him through the restaurant by elongating the muscles on his arm. High-End continues the assault by swinging its arm and almost causing the top floors of the building to collapse completely. Hawks appears after having rescued the injured civilians and stabs High-End with a volley of feathers. Endeavor follows up with another attack that cuts through High-End's body in multiple places. High-End comments that the battle is getting interesting and shows no concern over his injuries.
Endeavor launches an attack which High-End flies away from. The attack completely demolishes the a good portion of the building. Two heroes use their quirks to help Endeavor from below on the street. However, the attacks do not faze High-End. High-End then releases multiple Nomu into the streets. When Endeavor doesn't make a move, High-End asks Endeavor if he isn't going to attack anymore. High-End then rushes Endeavor, wanting to test his new strength on the hero. Endeavor then unleashes Prominence Burn, which carbonizes High-End's body, but not his head. High-End regenerates quickly, and strikes Endeavor. Endeavor falls to the ground defeated, as well as missing an eye. High-End then asks if there is a stronger hero around.
