Arbor ( (じゅ) (もく) Jumoku?)[1] is the Quirk used by Shinji Nishiya.


Kamui generating various tendrils of wood.

Arbor allows the user to generate and control wood from any part of their body.

Through Arbor, Kamui Woods is able to manifest tendrils of wood that seemingly sprout from his skin and then extend them over a long distance. These tendrils can come from anywhere on Kamui Woods's body and he has full control over their actions, giving him a way to perform multiple tasks at once.


Since Arbor is a wood-based Quirk, it is ineffective against flame or explosion-based attacks, due to wood being combustible.[2]


Kamui Woods mostly uses his Quirk for restraining enemies or to rescue people from dangerous situations. In both cases, this involves him wrapping his wooden tendrils around their bodies. Against villains, this Quirk is used to bind them in place, preventing them from acting, while for rescue victims, it's a useful method for carrying them to safety, especially if there are multiple casualties.

Kamui Woods frequently employs Arbor for evasion and locomotion, using his elongated tendrils to hold onto tall structures like buildings, which allows Kamui Woods to swing himself through the air.

  • This Quirk is similar to Vines, as both involve the manipulation of specific plant matter, which is noted by several characters, including Kamui Woods himself.
