Anonymous (アノニマス Anonimasu?)[1] are villains from My Hero Academia: Vigilantes, and serve as antagonists in the Naruhata Lockdown Arc.


Anonymous are humanoid villains of average build and height, though a few of them vary in these traits. They have a scar across their face similar to Number 6, and a mouth with defined lips similar to the Bombers.[2] Their extremely veiny skin is sectioned off into different-colored patches that look similar to Number 6's hero costume, and there are orbs located on the backs of their palms and at the center of their chest. They also have clawed feet and hands.

During the Naruhata Lockdown, they wore hats and long-sleeved clothing in order to blend into the crowds.


In a similar manner to the Bombers, the Anonymous lack any personality traits, only being designed to follow orders sent out by Number 6. They also possess a lack of instinct for self-preservation or fear. However, they're much more intelligent, demonstrated in their ability to mimic human emotion and speech as lures.


Naruhata Lockdown Arc

Sometime during the two years since the Sky Egg Bombing, the Villain Factory used their remaining Bomber cells to create the Anonymous, a bio-engineered hive mind of drones to be commanded by Number 6.

In his goal to kill Kazuho Haneyama, Number 6 devises the multi-step "Operation Anonymous", with the Anonymous at the centre. He proceeds to scatter them around Naruhata disguised as regular citizens, and executes them to use their special organs to unleash an EMP attack, causing a blackout and disabling all electronic communications, starting Phase 1.[2]

For Phase 2, the Anonymous cause a series of traffic accidents, systematically blocking off major roads to prevent people from entering and leaving the city. Phase 3, the Anonymous started to cause trouble and havoc in order to cause an atmosphere of unease and paranoia among the citizens.

Number 6 was irritated that The Crawler and Eraser Head were able to work together to save some citizens despite the efforts of the Anonymous, but the illusion of O'Clock disregarded it, saying that the only important factor was that All Might would not come to fight an unseen enemy.[3]

Number 6 noted that the paranoia and isolation the Anonymous had sowed in people were being undone by people's hope in heroes, which he admitted is admirable, but needed to be stopped. Three Anonymous lure The Crawler and Eraser Head down onto the street and attack them, detonating themselves in the process. After Eraser Head defeated them, five more arrived and charged in to attack. Eraser Head sent The Crawler to continue to the hospital while he took on the Anonymous himself.[1]

Number 6 then took a group of Anonymous and proceeded to storm the hospital that Kazuho was being held in.[4] He leaves the Anonymous behind to enter the building, knowing that keeping them all together in an in-closed building would be too dangerous, as well also to keep his focus on using Overclock.[5]

After he's forced to retreat due to the interjection of the Police Force and The Crawler, he sends the Anonymous to deal with each of his enemies, while he attempts to regroup his plan.[6] However, when The Crawler returns to personally confront Number 6, his focus turns right to the vigilante, leading all the Anonymous in the process of attacking their opponents to stop, with the ones going after the Police taken out by Midnight.[7]


Coordination: All Anonymous obey the commands of Number 6, almost like a hive mind. This allows them to move and operate in large numbers in a synchronized fashion.[3] He controls them through parallel processing thanks to his Overclock Quirk, and because of this he must have full focus in order for them to have more precise movements.[5] Without said focus, the Anonymous are effectively shut down.[7]

Enhanced Durability: Anonymous are able to take a repulsion blast from The Crawler without being injured or stunned.

Electromagnetic Pulse: Anonymous' bodies contain special EMP organs that can disrupt electronic communication.


Self-Detonation (爆発 Bakuhatsu?): Anonymous' Quirk allows them to self-destruct at will. Compared to the Bombers and Number 6, the explosions are much less powerful.
