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 navy blue, 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.


Nirengeki has been shown to be able to analyse movements well as he was able to take out Mineta even with his sporadic movements. He was also able to immediately figure out that Mina had blocked his attack in the Joint Training arc, despite it not being visible to him, with only the use of his tracker.


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. He has been shown to use this to jump higher, dash faster and to finish Mineta in a single hit. Granted, Mineta may not have the greatest constitution, but to defeat anyone in a single hit is quite the feat. He also uses his quirk on objects to send them flying at opponents or to send possible weapons away like he did when Uraraka touched some objects Reiko Yanagi and Yui Kodai sent towards her.

  • His surname, Shōda (庄田?), is homophonous with Shōda (掌打?), meaning "palm strike"; while his given name, Nirengeki (二連撃?), means "two hit combo". Thus, his full name translates to "palm strike, two hit combo", which is a clear reference to the Quirk he possesses.
    • In the fifth volume, Horikoshi referred to this as his "greatest naming achievement to date."
  • He likes to watch boxing matches.
  • He shares his birthday with his classmate, Manga Fukidashi.

  • (To Midnight and the other Sports Festival participants) "This is a contest of skill. Letting someone who didn't do anything advance... doesn't it defeat the whole point of the Sports Festival? Isn't it even against the rules?"[1]
