Chizuo ( () () () Chizuo?) was the maternal grandfather of Tenko Shimura and Hana Shimura, the father of Nao Shimura and husband of Mako. Not much is known about him currently, except that he died when his grandson’s Quirk went out of control.[1][2]


Chizuo was a relatively chubby and large elderly man. He had the same hair color as his daughter.



Chizuo was a loving and caring man who loved all of his family dearly. He was kind-hearted, as he is shown offering his grandson sweets to try and cheer him up. Despite this, he did not step in to stop his son-in-law from cruelly punishing his grandkids whenever they mentioned heroes. While he did not intervene, he did join his wife and daughter in confronting Kotaro, wanting to end the abuse for good.


He and his wife lived in the house owned by their daughter and son-in-law, which permitted them to have an everyday role in their grandchildren's lives. Although Chizuo spent everyday with his family, he was extremely uncomfortable by the abuse Kotaro subjected his son to for liking heroes but when Tenko would cry to them, him and his wife would only tell him to not cry choosing not to intervene with the recurring situation.

One night, Tenko's Decay Quirk manifested and he ended up killing the family dog then his sister in an accident. Chizuo, his wife, and daughter arrive because of Hana's alarming scream and are horrified by the bloody sight in front of them, almost causing Mako to collapse in shock but Chizuo catches her even though he was just as much shock as her. Begging for help, Tenko tries to reach his mother, but he touches the ground and his decay spreads, accidentally slaughtering them.[2] All that remained of him was his hands, which were recovered by All For One and Tenko added them to his villain costume after he became Tomura Shigaraki.


Paranormal Liberation War Arc

As Tomura laid unconscious after his procedure was interrupted, he experienced a warped version of his past, culminating in a shadowy version of All For One appearing before him. It constructs of his family desperately try to stop him from following in All For One's footsteps, but Tomura destroys them without hesitation, telling them not to reject who he is.[3]
