Don't waste your breath. Costumes? Check. On the scene? Check. That makes us heroes!
Denki Kaminari to Momo Yaoyorozu in "Disaster Walker!"

Denki Kaminari ( (かみ) (なり) (でん) () Kaminari Denki?), also known as Stun Gun Hero: Chargebolt (スタンガンヒーロー・チャージズマ Sutan Gan Hīrō Chājizuma?), is a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.

Appearance

Denki has short gold hair, parted to the right with a black lightning-shaped streak on the left of his side fringe, which is angled so that it partially obscures his left eye. He has slanted, somewhat triangular golden eyes, and notably small eyebrows. He's slimmer than most of the other male students in his class, not having much visible muscle mass. He gained a scar on his upper left forehead following his injury from Mr. Compress' attack.[1]

He wears the normal U.A. uniform during school hours, the second button of his blazer undone. He also wears dark brown shoes.

In his original hero costume, he wears a plain white shirt, over which he wears an open black jacket with a white lightning pattern across his back, and matching pants with two lines running down his legs. He has a single, square-shaped earphone over his right ear, something resembling a radio antenna sticking out of the top.

His updated hero costume consists of a slightly shorter black jacket with fewer white patterns, only two near the hem and collar, and a yellow rimmed lightning bolt going around each of his shoulders. He still wears matching black pants, but they only have a small zig-zag near each of their cuffs, and he wears a belt and a white V-neck shirt. Around his right wrist, he wears a wristband with a circular mechanism from which he can shoot disc-shaped Pointers which aid him in aiming his Quirk. Along with that, he wears a black choker with a silver buckle on the left side and a headset with a blue-tinted visor.

Personality

Denki is a friendly, social, and energetic boy who likes to hang out with people. He is rather casual when interacting with others, including the generally unfriendly Katsuki Bakugo, although he's also not above petty complaining or overreacting if feeling annoyed or shocked enough. Denki may come off as blunt and reckless at times, but is always well-meaning.

Denki talking to Mei Hatsume.

Denki is somewhat flirtatious towards the girls of his class (and even the ones from other classes), sometimes accompanying Minoru Mineta on his schemes and trying to pass himself off as a smooth talker. He is not very lucky with his approaches, though, frequently having his advances ignored or outright rejected by everyone he asks out. Denki is also a bit of a jokester and likes to tease others with playful comments. Overall, it seems that Denki has an interest in appearing cool and trendy in order to impress people, but has a shallow understanding of how to do so properly. Because of that, he gets easily influenced by what's popular or stylish at the moment, even if it's due to villain action.

Denki in contrast to the more dedicated students.

Denki is not very academically bright, requiring massive help at studying due to his general disinterest and neglect of school duties. He does not appear to pay much attention in classes, gets easily bored from lectures, and suffers anxiety attacks when dealing with tests, at which point he becomes increasingly agitated and aggressive. Frequently showing a lack of tact and smarts in and outside school, Denki may give off the impression of being stupid or foolish, leading others to throw snide remarks at him (especially Kyoka Jiro) or underestimate his capabilities as a hero. Despite this, Denki can show surprising knowledge about certain areas such as literature, art, and music, possessing a large vocabulary that shows up every now and then.

Denki standing back in battle.

Denki becomes quickly distraught when put into stressful situations, to the point of appearing spineless and incompetent to foes and allies alike. During combat, he is very quick to panic and may accidentally activate his Quirk in the face of any imminent danger, leaving himself vulnerable in the process. He becomes more reluctant to use his full power when there are allies close to him, being afraid of hurting them through collateral damage from his volatile bolts. When he is assured that all his allies will be safe from his powers, he becomes more confident in his fighting abilities. He does not tolerate others looking down on him or his classmates and will defend them if necessary.

Whenever Denki exceeds his wattage limit, he loses his ability to discharge energy, with his entire personality changing into that of a giggling idiot for a certain period until he reverts back to normal. In this state, he is always giving thumbs-ups, as a way to let others know that he is fine.

Abilities

Denki uses his electricity at two million volts to subdue a large horde of Security Bots.

Overall Abilities: While Denki doesn't possess any direct combat abilities, he compensates for this with the moderate handle he has on the destructive, widespread power of his Quirk. When using Electrification, Denki gains a defense mechanism that shocks anyone who comes into contact with him, leaving them slightly, if not completely, paralyzed. As a result, Denki can be a fairly difficult individual to face in battle, especially those that rely on close-quarters combat. If Denki emits enough electricity, it automatically discharges in all directions, shocking anyone close to him regardless if there's physical contact or not. This aspect of Electrification makes Denki very effective in battles involving a large number of opponents, but can also turn him into a burden if there are allies around who can't protect themselves from his bolts.

Denki combines his improved Quirk handling and Sharpshooting equipment to catch the formidable Seiji Shishikura off-guard.

With the help of Kyoka and Momo Yaoyorozu during the U.S.J. Incident, Denki was able to stun 3 villains, and eventually defeat the rest of the several villains that had surrounded the trio. Even at the U.A. Sports Festival, Denki was able to single-handedly short-circuit a giant Villain Bot. He showcased significant improvement during the Provisional Hero License Exam, when he teamed up with Katsuki and Eijiro Kirishima to battle Seiji Shishikura, one of the most formidable students of Shiketsu High School. After Seiji overpowered Katsuki and Eijiro, Denki utilized his improved Quirk handling in tandem with his new Sharpshooting Gear to catch the flesh manipulating student off-guard and successfully subdue him, which allowed Katsuki and Eijiro to break free from the effects of Seiji's Meatball Quirk, and completely defeat him. During Nine's attack on Nabu Island, he was utilized as a lightning rod by Izuku Midoriya and Katsuki to counteract Nine's Weather Manipulation Quirk, though at the cost of frying his brains again. His abilities eventually garnered the attention of The Lurkers (consisting of Edgeshot, Kamui Woods, and Mt. Lady), giving Denki the opportunity to intern under the trio of powerful heroes and improve on close and efficient team maneuvers. He was then able to once again make use of his lightning rod attributes during the raid on the Gunga Mountain Villa, where he was able to easily neutralize a villain's electricity Quirk.

Tactical Intellect: Despite not being one of the more intelligent members of Class 1-A, Denki does possess some degree of strategic and tactical skills. During the Joint Training, he devised a strategy to defeat Ibara Shiozaki, one of Class 1-B's most formidable students. Having learned from his first battle with her at the U.A. Sports Festival, that her vines are immune to electricity, Denki allowed himself to act as a decoy and be the only one captured so that he can produce enough electricity to divide the attention of the opposing team. Denki's plan allowed Hitoshi Shinso to discretely brainwash Ibara, while Tsuyu Asui captured her before subduing Hiryu Rin, which in turn defeated Jurota Shishida. Overall, Denki's ingenuity, which secured victory for his team, can be rather impressive when the situation calls for it.

Special Talents: Denki is highly skilled at playing the electric guitar, and can draw decently detailed portraits.

Quirk

Denki utilizing his electricity.

Electrification ( (たい) (でん) Taiden?): Denki's Quirk allows him to generate electricity and cover his body in it. While he can also emit this energy over a distance, Denki has little to no control over it. Exceeding his wattage limit causes his brain to short-circuit, leaving him in a vulnerable state for 1 hour.[2]

Denki is also able to absorb and neutralize electricity and other lightning-based Quirks.[3]

As part of his training, Denki ran his currents of electricity through a high capacity battery so he can handle larger amounts of electricity.

Super Moves

  • Indiscriminate Shock 1.3 Million Volts ( () () (べつ) (ほう) (でん) 130 (まん) V (ボルト) Musabetsu Hōden 130-man Boruto?): Denki releases a large amount of electricity to shock everyone around him. Since 1,300,000 volts is his current limit, using this technique makes his brain short-circuit for 1 hour.
    • Indiscriminate Shock 2 Million Volts: Denki is capable of increasing the output of his Indiscriminate Shock to 2 million volts, though this causes his brain to short circuit faster.[4]

Equipment

Communication Earpiece: Denki wears an earpiece on his right ear that allows him to channel his electricity and create electrical communication signals. This allows him to communicate with other channels remotely. However, signals can also be blocked out by outside electrical disturbance.

Sharpshooting Gear.png

Sharpshooting Gear: A device Denki wears on his right forearm that fires the pointers. It contains a dial that allows Denki to choose the pointer he wants his electricity to be directed towards in case multiple Pointers are set up.

  • Pointers: Disc-shaped projectiles that stick to targets. When Denki releases his electricity, it is attracted to the pointer of Denki's choosing. The working distance limit is 10 meters.
  • Optical Visor: A glasses-like accessory that updates Denki with info in regards to the Pointers.

Trivia

Denki's preliminary design.

  • In the preliminary stages of the series, Denki's design was radically different from his current one. He looked far more villainous, with longer, spikier hair. Also, he was not yet known as Denki Kaminari, but rather as a random electricity Quirk user.
