Chivalrous Hero: Fourth Kind (任侠ヒーロー フォースカインド Ninkyō Hīrō Fōsu Kaindo?)[2] is a Pro Hero.


Fourth Kind is a large, wide-set man with, as a result of his Quirk, four big arms. He has a buzzed, grayish-brown hair and small but wide eyes with no eyebrows, although the skin where they’d be is notably heavy and defined. His teeth are prominently straight, and he also has a stitched scar running diagonally over his left eye.

His hero costume consists of a plain black suit (altered to include four sleeves) with a cyan-colored tie, three yellow diamonds patterning it down the center, and a thick gold ring on each of his twenty fingers. His jaw also appears to be made of metal, or at least have a metal casing, as with his neck.


Fourth Kind is a strict professional who didn't cut Eijiro Kirishima or Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu any slack during their internships.[3] Any small infraction deeply upset Fourth Kind, who would reprimand the young men by hitting them.[4] Tetsutetsu feared Fourth Kind's impatience would lead to punishment when Eijiro made them late one day.[5]


Vs. Hero Killer Arc

Fourth Kind first appears when Eijiro and Tetsutetsu meet at his agency for their Hero Agency Internships. The Chivalrous Hero explains his agency put in two offers because he was impressed with the guts they both showed at the sports festival.[6] He informs them that they can't be heroes with force alone, but they interrupt him while he's talking so he yells for them both to be quiet. Then he goes on to explain the mechanisms of his salary and they're his office's practical operations.[3]

Fourth Kind harshly mentors Eijiro and Tetsutetsu

Later on, he has both of them make him tea. When he tastes that it's too warm, Fourth Kind gets angry and punches both of them while their Quirks are active. He tells them that the tea needs to impress their clients, and then says it's satisfying to hit the interns' Quirks while hiding that his hands hurt from punching their hardened heads.[4]

After the incident in Hosu, Fourth Kind catches Eijiro and Tetsutetsu coming in late. He angrily hits them and reminds them of the importance of punctuality.[7] He also takes the boys to do community service by cleaning up a local park because he considers that part of being a hero. Seeing the little enthusiasm of his trainees, Fourth Kind admonishes them, which makes Eijiro and Tetsutetsu work more intensely.[8]

Shie Hassaikai Arc

He is mentioned by Eijiro, who attempted to intern under him again, but he was busy.

Paranormal Liberation War Arc

16,929 PLF members were captured

Fourth Kind is requested to participate in the raid, being part of the team in charge of storming the Gunga Mountain Villa to defeat and arrest all members of the Paranormal Liberation Front.[9] Fourth Kind fights them until Gigantomachia begins acting on Tomura's orders, ordering him to go where he is. Fourth Kind has to step aside to avoid being crushed by Gigantomachia when Mt. Lady tries in vain to stop the behemoth.[10]

After Gigantomachia left the place, being chased by a group of heroes, Fourth Kind continues to fight against the PL F until the vast majority of them are defeated and arrested. Fourth Kind is one of the heroes in charge of guarding the 16,929 prisoners while they are put in police wagons to be sent to prison.[11]


Close Quarters Combat: Fourth Kind is good at close quarters combat by bringing foes into range.[12]


Quad Arms ( (よん) (ほん) (うで) Yonhon'ude?): Fourth Kind's Quirk is that he has four arms, increasing his strength.[12]

Katana: A katana is seen in his office, but it is unknown how proficient he is with it. It is likely that his katana is purely decorative in nature.
