Barrier (バリア Baria?)[1] is the Quirk used by Hekiji Tengai.


Barrier allows the user to create a telekinetic barrier around them, in the shape of a dome.[2]

Hekiji creating two barriers at once to defend against Kendo.

Fat Gum equates punching Hekiji's barrier to punching a steel wall. This Quirk can also be projected around the radius of Hekiji's choosing, as he is able to cover both himself and Kendo Rappa at one point, and only himself at another, indicating he has a degree of control over the size of the barriers he creates. It is unknown if the size of the barrier affects the durability of the Quirk.

Hekiji can also raise the barrier quickly, being able to even out speed Kendo's Strongarm.[3]


Barrier is exclusively used for defense, meaning it cannot be applied offensively.

Hekiji is always at the center of the Quirk, meaning that he cannot project barriers around anything that is not within his range.

Despite being very sturdy, the barriers can be broken if an extreme amount of power is used against them.[4] If Hekiji becomes too weakened or injured, he becomes unable to summon more barriers.[5]
