Briareos (ブリアレオス Buriareosu?) was one of the guards of Tartarus' main entrance.


Briareos had ten arms.

His costume included a helmet, which completely hid his face.


Very little is known about his personality at the time, though defending Tartarus from the All For One controlled Tomura Shigaraki until he was killed, Briareos showed a great sense of duty.


Paranormal Liberation War Arc

Briareos and his brother Gyges were guarding the Bronze Gate, the Mainland Gate of Tartarus prison, when they were attacked by the All For One controlled Tomura Shigaraki and his Near High-End Nomu. Gyges and his brother use the prison's security robots to repel the attack, but during the first confrontation Briareos is killed.[1]



Unknown Multiple Arm Quirk: Briareos possessed a Quirk that appeared to give him ten arms, though it is unknown if the extra arms were retractable or a permanent addition to his body.
