School Trip Arc

File:The Vanguard Action Squad starts the invasion.png

Magne arrives alongside Moonfish and Spinner and they join the rest of the Vanguard Action Squad as they are looking down at the camp. When the squad begins its attack on the camp Magne and Spinner run into Pixie-bob and defeat her.[2]

When some of the students, arrive at the scene, Spinner introduces the Vanguard Action Squad and Magne asks the heroes whether he should crush Pixie-Bob's skull. This enrages Tiger but Spinner tells Kenji not to hurry and also tells Tiger to calm down. After talking about Stain Spinner introduces himself and reveals his huge sword. Tiger and Mandalay start fighting the two villains while the students leave.[3]

While they are fighting Spinner is distracted by Mandalay's compliments and is attacked by Mandalay's claws. While she is preparing to attack him again, Kenji saves Spinner by using his Quirk to pull her closer to him. Before he can attack Mandalay, Tiger steps in to save his partner by punching Kenji in the face. Tiger introduces Kenji and reveals all of the crimes he has committed so far. Kenji jokingly says that he did not know that he was famous but Tiger continues to punch him. Kenji blocks the punch with his hands. After Mandalay mentions that she is not able to reach Ragdoll, Kenji smiles.[4]

The fight continues and suddenly, Midoriya appears while smashing Spinner's "sword" to bits to inform Mandalay about Kouta's whereabouts and about the fact that the villains are looking for Katsuki. Kenji deduces that Izuku must have beaten Muscular to get that information and decides to kill Izuku. However, Kenji can not reach him because Spinner throws a knife between him and Izuku, thus stopping him from pursuing Izuku further. Kenji scolds him for this action because Izuku is on the priority kill list of the Vanguard Action Squad. Spinner then clarifies that the list belongs to Tomura and tells Kenji that Midorya was the person that Stain saw fit to save thus being a man worthy of the title of a true hero. While they are arguing, both of them are attacked by their respective opponents.[5]

Hideout Raid Arc


After completing the mission, Kenji is present when Tomura talks to the restrained Katsuki inside the League of Villains' hideout.[7]

After Katsuki and the League of Villains watch a video clip of U.A.'s public apology, Kenji listens to Tomura explaining to Katsuki about the current society's flaws and the League of Villains' battle to make a better society. After his restrains are removed, Katsuki attacks Tomura with his Explosions. Katsuki tells the League of Villains that it is pointless to try and make him change his mind as he has already been won over by the way All Might looks when he wins. Katsuki says that from the beginning he has dreamed of becoming a Hero and surpassing All Might and nothing they say will change that.[8] Katsuki tries intimidating his captors, but Kenji along with the rest of the Vanguard Action Squad are not intimidated.[9]

Suddenly, All Might breaks in with Kamui Wood swinging in and restrains Kenji along with the other League of Villains with his Lacquered Chains Prison.[10]

Out of nowhere, Noumus appear from mysterious back liquid which takes the Pro Heroes off guard. Kenji along with the League of Villains are teleported by the mysterious black liquid to the League of Villains' destroyed warehouse where Sensei is.[11]

Sensei forcefully activates Kurogiri's Quirk which creates a portal for the League of Villains to escape through.[12]

After Katsuki is rescued by Izuku, Tenya and Eijrou, Mr. Compress along with Kenji and Spinner hatch a plan to recapture Katsuki. Kenji magnetizes Mr. Compress and Spinner pushes him, causing Mr. Compress to fly at Izuku’s group. Suddenly, Mount Lady uses Titan Cliff and intercepts Mr. Compress, which causes them to smash into each other, preventing Mr. Compress from getting to the students. Kenji and Spinner prepare to throw Twice, but Gran Torino blitzes them causing them to become unconscious.

Tomura and the Vanguard Action Squad are forcefully magnetized by Kenji's Quirk courtesy of Sensei; Kenji is knocked into Kurogiri's Warp Gate by Sensei and is teleported away.[13]
