Koji Koda (口田甲司,Kōda Kōji?), also known as the Petting Hero: Anima (ふれあいヒーロー アニマ,Fureai Hīrō Anima?), is a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.
Koji is a tall young man of a wide, muscular build with peach-colored skin. His head takes the form of a rock, which is unevenly shaped and pointed at the top of his head, and his jaw is square-shaped.
His hero costume is a tight yellow suit, only reaching to his knees and elbows, with a large red marking over his torso and at the ends of his sleeves. On his chest, there's a symbol resembling an open mouth, and he wears yellow shoes with red lining.
In preparation for the Provisional Hero License Exam, Koji added two white straps over his shoulders and wears a mask that covers his entire face, with holes above over his mouth so his voice still can be heard when he's using his Quirk. His shoes were swapped out in favor of boots.
Koji's first hero costume.
Contrary to his powerful and brutish appearance, Koji is a very shy and quiet person. As such, he rarely speaks and prefers using sign language to communicate with his classmates, so much so that Kyoka Jiro assumed that he was mute. According to Fumikage Tokoyami, he is very good at keeping secrets. He also hates violence due to his kind-hearted nature.
He appears to enjoy the company of animals, even owning a small rabbit as a pet. With his Quirk, Koji can interact with them in ways others can't. He also owns a few animal dolls and decorations in his room, implying that he likes cute things.
Koji suffers from entomophobia, being deathly afraid of bugs, with the mere sight of them making him scream and run away in fear. However, Koji is capable of (reluctantly) putting this fear aside if it means helping his comrades.
Anivoice (生き物ボイス,Ikimono Boisu?): Koji's Quirk gives him the ability to command and control any creature in the animal kingdom by speaking to them. Whatever command he gives, the animal will carry it out. His ability to command and control animals extends to insects as well. However, he is unable to exert his control if they cannot hear his command. The target must also be a real animal and not merely animal-shaped.
