I know this is a great opportunity. And I know how stupid it must seem to throw it away... but this final tournament... everyone else made it here by their own strength. Yet I'm standing here, and I don't even know how or why. I just can't take it.Mashirao Ojiro quitting the U.A. Sports Festival in "Smile, Prince of Nonsense Land!"
Mashirao is a young man of muscular build and has short blond hair, swept to the front of his head. He has thin eyes with no lower eyelashes and a thick, long tail with a hairy tip. Unlike the other students in his class, he wears pale gray sneakers with his school uniform instead of the brown dress shoes worn by everyone else, and the bottom button of his blazer he leaves casually undone.
Before the Provisional Hero License Exam Arc, his costume recieves a slight upgrade, now including navy blue fingerless gloves.
During the Joint Training Battle he added a large coat to his hero costume.
Mashirao has a very calm and noble attitude, as well as a very deep sense of dignity, which prevents him from accepting results that he doesn't feel were earned with his own abilities. He is also described as a hard worker.
Along with a strong sense of dignity, Mashirao can be described as sheepish and bashful, not very often enjoying the spotlight and being easily embarrassed. He is quite humble, yet also reliable and focused during hero work. A recurring joke is that others tend to view as "plain", something that deeply upsets him, showing that he's sensitive and self-conscious about his own personality and abilities.
When something excites him, he wags his tail, in a similar fashion to a dog, though this is only ever seen in the manga.
Overall Abilities: Given his epithet, Martial Arts Hero, it can be assumed that Mashirao is a highly capable combatant. His skills allowed him to earn 7th place in the Quirk Apprehension Test. Mashirao mostly relies on hand-to-hand combat during battles and makes use of his Quirk during close quarters combat. According to Ectoplasm, Mashirao relying on the use of his tail makes him a predictable opponent that can easily be exploited. To eliminate this factor, Mashirao improved the fundamentals of his movements to become less predictable in combat.
During the Joint Training Arc, he held his own against Sen Kaibara, who was holding back, but was almost overwhelmed by the latter’s onslaught, had it not been for the intervention of Tenya Iida. Even after receiving minor injuries from his bout with Sen, Mashirao was able to successfully subdue Pony Tsunotori, the fastest student in Class 1-B, who has battling against Mezo Shoji.
Keen Intellect: Mashirao is known to be quite intelligent, scoring 8th place in the midterms, displaying his skill in academics.
- Tornado Tail Dance (
尾 空 旋 舞Bikū Senbu?): Mashirao spins in mid-air, hitting anything around him with his tail. First used against Pony Tsunotori to destroy her remote-controlled horns during the Joint Training Arc.
- Fist of the Tail: Swamp Smack Spin (尾拳・沼田打旋風 Biken Nutauchi Senpū?): A defensive technique where Mashirao spins horizontally with his tail stretched out, generating enough force to repel anything close to him. First used against Juzo Honenuki in order to escape his Softening Quirk.
