Invisibility ( (とう) (めい) () Tōmeika?) is the Quirk used by Toru Hagakure.

Description

Toru embarrassed of being naked.

Invisibility grants the user a completely invisible body.

Because of Invisibility, none of Toru's physical features can be observed through the naked eye, making it hard to detect her presence or read her emotions unless she announces them herself.

While unexplained, this Quirk also involves a degree of light manipulation, giving Toru the ability to refract light from her invisible body.

Weaknesses

Invisibility does not extend to clothing or objects, meaning that Toru needs to constantly strip off her clothes in order for her Quirk to be useful. However, going fully naked also exposes her skin to the elements and, therefore, her body may be affected by extreme temperatures.

Certain Quirks can also help detect or reveal Toru's presence, such as Mezo Shoji's Dupli-Arms enhancing his sensory capabilities and giving him a better chance of finding her.[1] Another example is Kinoko Komori's Mushroom Quirk that can cover her with fungi and reveal her silhouette.[2]

Invisibility is permanently active and cannot be switched off. However, refracting light from Toru’s body can reveal her true appearance, but only briefly.[3]

Usage

Toru redirecting Yuga Aoyama's Navel Laser.

Invisibility's primary purpose is for stealth. Toru can easily bypass regular, visual detection, making it ideal for ambush attacks, spying missions or just avoiding enemy strikes. However, those advantages only come in handy if she strips herself of any sort of clothing or equipment, which leaves her vulnerable to other senses, like contact with cold surfaces.

Through training, Toru has learned how to use the light manipulation capabilities of her Quirk, being able to refract light inside of her and intensify it, making her capable of blinding people.[4] After her Hero Work-Studies with Yoroi Musha, Toru has strengthened and improved this ability, being able to manipulate Yuga Aoyama's Navel Laser.[5]
