Rikido Sato ( () (とう) (りき) (どう) Satō Rikidō?), also known as the Sweets Hero: Sugarman (甘味ヒーローシュガーマン Kanmi Hīrō Shugā Man?), is a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.

Appearance

Rikido is a tall, very muscular young man with a wide build. His brown hair is short, and spiked upwards away from his head, he has rather small, square-shaped eyes with small black pupils, a pair of bushy eyebrows just above. He has very full lips which are slightly darker in color than the rest of his skin, and a notably large, round nose.

His costume consists of a yellow full-body suit, covering the entirety of his body, the only exceptions being the holes around his mouth, each of his eyes, and his hair. He wears white gloves and boots, and a utility belt around his waist, small quantities of sugar stored inside its pouches.

Personality

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 guard by this overly positive reaction suggests that he himself doesn't think much of his own abilities as a confectioner.[1]

Abilities

Overall Abilities: Thanks to his Quirk, Rikido is a straightforward fighter who takes advantage of the temporarily augmented physical might granted by Sugar Rush to punch his way through obstacles and enemies.

Gastronomic Talents: Rikido has great talent in baking, being able to prepare cakes and other types of sweets. This talent was developed due to his Quirk needing sugar to be activated and store bought sweets being more expensive.

Quirk

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. In order to activate his Quirk, he needs to consume 10 grams of sugar. When converting sugar into strength, his cognitive functions gradually drop, making him very sleepy afterward. For every additional 10 grams of sugar he ingests, he extends the time of increased strength by another three minutes.
