Kamui Woods to the Giant Villain in "Izuku Midoriya: Origin"

Shinji Nishiya (西 (にし) () 森児 (しんじ) Nishiya Shinji?),[1] also known by his hero name, Kamui Woods (シンリンカムイ Shinrin Kamui?), is the No. 7 Pro Hero.


Kamui Woods' face is unknown since he has only been shown while he is using his Quirk. His Hero Costume includes a wooden belt, wooden knee pads, and wooden shoes. A small rose veil hangs from the left side of his belt.

After he officially became the No. 7 Pro Hero, his costume was slightly modified, and he now has two wooden rings hanging on his shoulder, which have stumps and branches protruding from them.


Kamui Woods is a very serious and focused person when it comes to being a hero in his hero duties; however, he easily feels down when someone takes his glory or credit.
