Habit Headgear to Kamui Woods and Mt. Lady in "Rescue Training"

Habit Headgear ( (そう) (ぼう) ヘッドギア Sōbō Heddo Gia?) is a C-rank villain.[2][3]


Habit is an enormous, muscular humanoid villain with an unusual extension from his shoulders that grows up and over his head, which gives it a hood-like appearance. His face is largely concealed within this hood, only showing round, white eyes and a large mouth.

He wears an armored half-vest with a chain over his right shoulder and cargo pants with additional plating.


Habit is cruel and cowardly, taking a family hostage and threatening to harm them if anyone gave chase to him. He is quick to mock his foes with his speed, and brag about the apparent ease of his revealed plans.[4]


U.S.J. Arc

Habit Headgear is seen terrorizing a town and holding hostages while Mt. Lady and Kamui Woods are having trouble dealing with him. While he's bragging about his strength, All Might shows up from behind and uses Missouri Smash to beat him quickly and save the hostages.[4]


Overall Abilities: Habit Headgear is assumed to be fairly powerful as both Mt. Lady and Kamui Woods struggled against him, even when he is holding hostages.[2]


Trap Flex: Habit Headgear's Quirk allows him to flex his trapezius to absurd degrees, giving him a fair amount of strength and speed, and also causing the shoulder extension on his head. However, the strength boost is far below that of One For All's, as All Might defeats him with a single blow to the back of the head.[4]
