Illegal use of abilities during rush hour, as well as robbery and assault? You're pure evil.

Template:Character Infobox/Pro Shinji Nishiya (西 (にし) () 森児 (しんじ) Nishiya Shinji?),[1] also known as the hero Kamui Woods (シンリンカムイ Shinrin Kamui?), is the No. 7 Pro Hero.


Kamui Woods's' 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.

No one knows what Kamui, or Shinji Nishiya really looks like under his costume since the anime and manga have never shown what he really looks like before.


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

Quirk and Abilities

Overall Abilities: Kamui Woods has grown to be incredibly strong during his career as a hero, earning him the spot at the No. 7 ranked hero on the JP Billboard Charts. His skills have led some to believe he will be a standout hero of the next generation.
