Synopsis
This job's been running me ragged. I can't seem to catch a break. And what do I get for it? Rants. Doubts. Rage. Yeah, I know there's still some support for us out there, but... one loud heckler easily drowns out ten fans. I've never felt like this before. I thought I was different. Better. I'm sure we all did once. But nah, I'm no hero. Only human.
Death Arms announcing his retirement in "Scars, Blood, Filth"

Death Arms (デステゴロ Desutegoro?)[2] is a former Pro Hero. He retired due to excessive criticism from the public.

Appearance

Death Arms is a very tall, muscular man of a wide build with slightly-tanned skin. He has a square jaw which juts out a notable amount, small eyes and short white hair, spiked out behind his head.

In his hero costume, he wears large headband with a yellow and black-striped caution pattern, matching his thick wrist-guards and the belt around his waist, a square buckle with a triangular decoration sat in its center. He wears what looks to be a cyan-colored cardigan, which exposes his lower torso and the center of his pectorals, held onto his chest on each side by small metal nuts. His pants are dark blue, a white stripe down each side, and are slightly baggy on him, and his shoes are plain black with a simple design.

Personality

Death Arms is a serious person who dislikes rash actions since he scolds Izuku Midoriya for attempting to save Katsuki Bakugo.

Despite his tough demeanor and being well-respected for his hero work, he takes criticism hard and feels that one negative comment outweighs ten positive comments.

Abilities

Quirk

Unnamed Arm Strength Quirk: Death Arms' Quirk grants him a superhuman level of strength in his arms. He is able to lift things that are so heavy, they could normally only be moved via industrial machinery.

Trivia

Death Arms' prototype.

  • Death Arms is a smoker.[3]
  • Death Arms likes watching combat matches.[4]
  • His hero name comes from sutegoro (ステゴロ?), a yakuza term for "hand-to-hand/barehanded combat".
    • His hero name also seems to be a combination of the Japanese pronunciation for the English word "death" (デス Desu?), the katakana for "hand" ( te?), and the katakana for "kill" ( koro/goro?).
  • Death Arms' English voice actor, Cris George, also voices Rikido Sato and Gigantomachia. His Japanese voice actor, Shinnosuke Ogami, also voices Yawara Chatora.
  • Death Arms shares his birthday with Shihai Kuroiro.
