Nemuri Kayama (
Nemuri is a tall, curvaceous woman with sky blue eyes, which tilt downwards in the center; framed by a set of rather long eyelashes. She has abundant spiky dark purple hair which is made up of layers of varying lengths, the longest ones reaching down below her waist. Her chin-length bangs that are split into three sections; two swept to the sides and one over her face, going diagonally down to the left between her eyes. She also has a small mole under her left eye, as well as red-painted nails.
Her hero costume is very similar to one of a traditional dominatrix. She wears a black leather breastless leotard over a white bodysuit (flesh-colored in the manga), which emphasizes her breasts, body, and legs, the leotard possessing red gemstone-like accessories in a vertical pattern from the collar to the midriff. She also wears translucent black thigh-high stockings that are connected to her utility belt and black knee-boots. She has a small, red mask outlining her eyes, a handcuff on each wrist, and a red utility belt decorated with gold studs around her hips, a matching pentagonal buckle in its center. She is often seen carrying a flogger-style whip. The white bodysuit is made of thin material that is easily rippable so she can more easily use her Quirk. Nemuri has stated in an interview that she is trying different materials to find out what works while adhering to regulations.
During her years at U.A. High School, Nemuri's original costume was more revealing. Her breast were censored by a black protective plate, a utility belt that held her whip and a dog collar. She seemingly wore only undergarments with a unbuttoned trench coat over everything. She also had large shades compared to the glasses wears now.
Midnight is a very playful and flirtatious person with an unpredictably serious and temperamental side to her. She gets angry whenever someone interrupts her or when they insult her, and, when it comes to insults, she is especially sensitive about her age.
Midnight has no shame for dressing or acting sexually in front of young students and appears to act on whims most of the time. When she accepted Mashirao Ojiro and Nirengeki Shoda’s request to resign from the tournament, she commented that their naivety "turned her on". She was also very excited to see the chivalry displayed by Eijiro Kirishima during the tournament when he shook Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu’s hand.
When Class 1-A needed to decide on code names for their internship, Midnight displayed her willingness to help her students by making sure they chose names that would represent themselves well. During the Final Exams, Midnight admitted to Minoru Mineta that she has a sadistic side and enjoys dominating others. She can be impressed with those who resort to genius plans, as she was amazed by Minoru using tactical thinking to defeat her by leaving her in place before passing the gate.
Despite her flirtatious personality, Midnight is intelligent, perceptive, and articulate, as seen when she logically explained the reasoning behind some hero's having revealing costumes to make full use of their quirks, and how that leads to "sexy" costumes and how she single-handedly instituted the costume regulations. Mt. Lady replied that it's because she likes dressing the way she does. Her love of "youth" is also a reason she gets angry when someone mentions her age or calls her old.
Modern Art Expertise: Nemuri teaches high school modern art history.
Whip: Fitting her dominatrix theme, Midnight wields a flogger-style whip in combat and she is skilled in wielding it. She also used a bullwhip-style whip during the First Term Final Exam.
Fans: Midnight uses a pair of hand fans in combat to better spread her sleep-inducing fragrance.
Ultra Thin Fabric Suit: Nemuri can only spread her sleep-inducing aroma from exposed skin. The law states that a Hero costume can't expose too much skin, so to make up for this hindrance, she wears a suit made of material that she can easily rip through.
