Early bird gets the worm! Victory is as simple as that.
Setsuna Tokage to her teammates in "Early Bird!"

Setsuna Tokage ( () (かげ) (せつ) () Tokage Setsuna?), also known as Lizardy (リザーディ Rizādi?)[1], is a student in Class 1-B at U.A. High School, where she got in through recommendations[2], and is training there to become a Pro Hero.


Setsuna is a young girl of average height who has large, upturned dusky green eyes with long lower eyelashes, and notably long and pointed teeth. Her hair is a dark moss green, collectively reaching just below her shoulders aside from a short clump that hangs in the centre of her forehead, and it grows wavier and thinner the lower down it gets.

Her hero costume consists of a blue, scaly mask over her eyes, a simple bodysuit with a matching design and black knee-high boots. She wears fingerless gloves with orange, three-piece wrist-guards, and a belt around her waist with what looks to be a jewel embedded into the center.



Setsuna is described as chatty, confident, and extremely provocative and talkative. She is one of the few students in Class 1-B that does not bear any apparent hatred to Class 1-A.

As shown in the Joint Training Arc, Setsuna is a wily and thoughtful girl with great aptitudes at leadership and cooperation. She is careful, concerned and attentive. Her attitude is different in combat and non-combat situations, having a more dirty and serious disposition when in the midst of battle.[3]

Setsuna is a reliable person; her teammates believe in her and don't hesitate to follow her. She seems to have a considerable influence on her classmates, which implies that she has probably proven several times that she is trustworthy and responsible. Because of her strong personality and skills, Setsuna has total confidence in herself and her potential. She doesn't doubt or hesitate, appearing to be very strong-willed.[4]


Overall Abilities: Setsuna is a recommended student, as such, she possesses a very good level of skill. She is also said to be the most skilled and talented student of her class by her classmates. She is considered as being a polyvalent combatant, great and sharp at several things. Thanks to her Quirk, Lizard Tail Splitter, Setsuna has excellent tracking skills and pursuance potential.

As a recommended student, she is very confident in her skills and abilities. Her talents and abilities make her respected in her class. Neito Monoma even said that she has the potential to defeat Katsuki Bakugo, one of the strongest students in Class 1-A, because her Quirk that is invulnerable against him. But it was proven that, upon being defeated by Katsuki, the person she allegedly had the potential to defeat, during their joint training match, she isn’t as powerful as Neito claimed she was, albeit still the retaining her rank as the strongest student in Class 1-B. Setsuna is overall a highly capable and creative student, established as being one of the best of her class and one of the most gifted of her generation.

Keen Intellect: Setsuna is shown to possesses an excellent intellect and a very impressive strategic mind. During her fight against Katsuki's team, she has shown to be also foresighted, strategical and highly observant. Setsuna came up with a multi-step plan to defeat Katsuki’s team that would have branching strategies to trap them no matter what action they took. She predicted the approach they were going to take advantage of their strengths and formation. She wanted to exploit the skills of her opponents for her own sake. Setsuna is wily, reactive, and a quick thinker, with a strong degree of creativity and tries to be as unpredictable as possible. She uses her Quirk in a very tactical way to distract her enemies or to have a perfect control of the area. Her tactical skills and sense of observation are the best in her class. She takes all factors into account to try to dominate the situation by being faster at organization and preparation.

However, Setsuna's great reliance on detail and organization comes with a weakness in improvisation and adaptability. When the initial attack against Bakugo's team failed to capture any of them, she was unable to adapt to the changing circumstances and their strong comeback, which proved to be a factor in her team's defeat.

  • Leadership Skills: Setsuna seems be an excellent leader, in which she proved to be capable at leading others during fights and critical situations.


Lizard Tail Splitter (トカゲのしっぽ切り Tokage no Shippokiri?)[5]: Setsuna's Quirk allows her to split up her body. She can currently split into 50 parts, depending on the size and length of the sections.[6] Her Quirk also gives her the ability to be able to regenerate her body if her limbs are destroyed or unusable. When she is decomposed, she can levitate and move freely in the air.

However, the regeneration ability of her Quirk is very exhausting for her, which is why she prefers to recall as many of her body parts back as possible in order to conserve her energy. Every individual pieces of her body can levitate, giving her much greater control over the playing field than if they just stayed on the ground. Her Quirk is extremely versatile and polyvalent since she can use it to spy, attack, track down and distract her opponents, even though it is way more suitable and efficient for tracking and spying rather than attacking and damaging. Her limbs are nearly untouchable when they are split because of their high mobility and microscopic invulnerability. They are too small and too fast to be easily taken down or catchable.
