You're not so hard to nab once I caught on to your moves! You should know, they call me the Mobile Adonis!
Nirengeki Shoda to Minoru Mineta in "Final Face-Off! Midoriya vs. Shinso!"

Nirengeki Shoda ( (しょう) () () (れん) (げき) Shōda Nirengeki?), also known as Mines, is a student in Class 1-B at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.


Nirengeki is a chubby young man of average height, with short, ice-blue hair and a round face. He has large, wide eyes with small pupils, and is usually seen looking a little sheepish and apologetic; his eyebrows are almost always pointed upwards.

His hero costume consists of a black, high-collared suit with a trim of thin pale lines around its collar and hem, and a similar pattern over his torso and shoulders, along with plain black pants and knee-high boots. A scouter-looking device is worn over his left eye, and he has a connected radar on the back of one of his gloved hands.


Nirengeki has a very humble attitude, as he will not take credit for something he does not feel he earned by his own strength.



Twin Impact (ツインインパクト Tsuin Inpakuto?): This Quirk can cause any attack in an area to repeat in the same place a second time, just with several times the initial impact.
