Remember this lesson, Red Riot!! When fighting villains... quickly making them lose the will to fight is everything!!
Taishiro Toyomitsu to Eijiro Kirishima in "Guts! Let's go, Red Riot!"

Taishiro Toyomitsu (豊満 (とよみつ) (たい) 志郎 (しろう) Toyomitsu Taishirō?),[2] also known as BMI Hero: Fat Gum (BMI (ビーエムアイ) ヒーロー ファットガム Bīemuai Hīrō Fatto Gamu?), is a Pro Hero. He employed Tamaki Amajiki and Eijiro Kirishima during the Shie Hassaikai Arc.

Appearance

Fat Gum Volume 22

Fat Gum in the Manga.

In his fat form, Taishiro is a big, round man, easily towering over other adults. In this form, his mouth is big and his nose is smaller, which alongside his odd body proportions, give him an odd look. After burning through his fat, however, it is revealed that he is quite muscular, and his body adapts conventional proportions.

His hero costume consists of black pants and an orange, zippered hood, which has the initials of his alias on the front of Fat Gum, written with a clear F,G and an inverted F. Alongside them, he also wears gloves, metallic boots, and a mask that goes around his eyes and over his forehead.

His hero costume in Vigilantes, which takes place several years ago, is basically the same, except that the initials of his alias are written with only a black F and G. In addition, he wears dark forearm guards.

Personality

Taishiro appears to be constantly hungry, which leads him to eat a lot. He is very friendly towards civilians and other heroes, appearing to be a playful and a carefree person. However, he can be extremely serious when the situation demands it, always having the work ethic of a hero.

Whenever he is focused on doing the right thing, he becomes quite impulsive and determined, especially when lives are at stake. In which case, he becomes utterly enraged, because of that, he is rather impatient, disapproving of operations that are rather lengthy.

Due to the time he spent working for the police, Fat Gum is very knowledgeable about the underworld. He is capable of recognizing potential when he sees it, complimenting Tamaki Amajiki's prowess as a hero, though the latter thinks of it as harassment. He also extends this to Eijiro Kirishima after he held his own against a villain and praised his will to continue.

Abilities

Enhanced Strength: Fat Gum is shown to have above-average strength, as he is able to grab hold of multiple villains and keep them in his grip while using his Quirk. He can also crush two pieces of hard candy with his bare hand.

Enhanced Durability: Fat Gum has great durability thanks to his Quirk. He is able to take several assaults from Kendo Rappa's powerful bullet punches and keep standing, whereas Eijiro Kirishima's maximum Hardening is barely able to defend against one of Kendo's assaults.

Enhanced Agility: Despite his stature, Fat Gum's speed is rather impressive, as he is able to react quickly against troubling situations.

Quirk

Fat Gum absorbing energy

Fat Gum's Energy Absorption.

Fat Absorption (脂肪吸着 Shibō Kyūchaku?): Taishiro's Quirk allows him to make his obese body adhere to anything and force objects to sink into his fat.

His fat can also store kinetic energy, which he can convert into offensive muscle at the cost of his fat, thus weakening his defense.
