Kenji Hikiishi to Overhaul in "Overhaul"

This article is about the former member of the League of Villains. For the Chief of Police, see Kenji Tsuragamae

Kenji Hikiishi ( (ひき) (いし) (けん) () Hikiishi Kenji?), also known as Magne (マグネ Magune?),[2] was a villain affiliated with the League of Villains and part of its Vanguard Action Squad.[3] She and the rest of her team serve as the main antagonists of the Forest Training Camp Arc. Magne used female pronouns despite her masculine presentation.

Magne's Color Scheme

Magne was a transgender woman with quite a wide, muscular build, her hair smooth, shoulder-length and a reddish magenta color, and her rather square jaw covered thinly with facial hair. Her lips were notably big, appearing to be similar to Rikido Sato’s, just slightly more pink-tinted in color, and she always wore triangular, white-framed sunglasses, obscuring her eyes. Along with these, she also wore a dark orange shirt, left unbuttoned to reveal with white v-neck she had on underneath, and blue jeans secured with a belt, plain dark brown espadrilles on her feet.


Magne had a cruel and brutal personality, befitting a murderous criminal. Magne joined the League of Villains so that she would be free to live life the way she wanted; this is shown when she refused to be Overhaul's subordinate and attacked him. During her active role in the League, she was shown to be quite perceptive and suited for quick thinking, as shown when she deduced Izuku Midoriya had been the one to defeat Muscular and he needed to be put down and was the one that created the idea to go after the students after they rescued Katsuki Bakugo.


Overall Abilities: Magne had proven herself to be a very capable villain, coupled with the good handling she has on her Quirk, Magentism, which she uses for both offense and support. With the help of 2 allies that are of the same gender as each other, Magne could apply her Quirk abilities to launch one of them off. Magne can also use her Quirk's effects to catch her opponents off-guard and draw them closer to her so that she can initiate point-blank attacks. According to Tiger, Magne's abilities garnered her a reputation of pulling off multiple top-tier crimes: 9 armed robberies, 3 murders, and 29 attempted murders. Even in combat, she was able to dodge Tiger's multitude of attacks and block one of his point-blank punches with ease, considering Tiger possesses enhanced physical strength. When the League of Villains came into contact with Overhaul and refused his offer to serve under him, Magne managed to catch the Yakuza leader by surprise by magnetizing him and reeled him in for an attack.

Magnetism: Kenji's Quirk allowed her to apply strong magnetic polarity to people around her within a 4.5 meter radius. She could magnetize a person's entire body or specific portions. Men are polarized south, and women are polarized north. Magne couldn't magnetize herself.
