Rikido Sato ( () (とう) (りき) (どう) Satō Rikidō?) is a student at U.A. High School training to become a Pro Hero.


He is a very muscular person with rather full lips and brown, spiky hair.

His costume consists of a yellow full-body suit that has two holes for his mouth and hair to come out. He wears white gloves and boots and a utility belt around his waist.


Rikido has an interest in sweets and baking, the latter being a useful skill to have due to his Quirk.

He is surprisingly talented at making sweets, conquering his classmates with his food. The fact that Rikido was caught off by this overly positive reaction suggests that he himself doesn't think much of his own abilities as a confectioner.[1]


Gastronomic Talents: Rikido has great talent in cooking, being able to prepare cakes and other types of sweets. This talent was probably developed due to his quirk needing sugar to be activated.


Sugar Rush (シュガードープ Shugā Dōpu): Rikido's Quirk allows him to increase his strength five-fold, for three minutes, by consuming 10 grams of sugar. For every additional 10 grams of sugar, he ingests he extends the time of increased strength by another three minutes. However, when converting sugar into strength, his cognitive functions gradually drop, making him very sleepy afterward.
