Kenji Hikiishi to Overhaul in "Overhaul"

This article is about the former member of the League of Villains. For the Chief of Police, see Kenji Tsuragamae.

Kenji Hikiishi ( (ひき) (いし) (けん) () Hikiishi Kenji?), also known as Magne (マグネ Magune?),[2] was a villain affiliated with the League of Villains and part of its Vanguard Action Squad.[3] She and the rest of her team serve as the main antagonists of the Forest Training Camp Arc.


Magne was a woman with quite a wide, muscular build, her hair smooth, shoulder-length and reddish magenta color, and her rather square jaw covered thinly with facial hair. Her lips were notably big, appearing to be similar to Rikido Sato’s, just slightly more pink-tinted in color, and she always wore triangular, white-framed sunglasses, obscuring her eyes. Along with these, she also wore a dark orange shirt, left unbuttoned to reveal with white v-neck she had on underneath, and blue jeans secured with a belt, plain dark brown espadrilles on her feet.


Magne had a cruel and brutal personality, befitting a murderous criminal. Magne joined the League of Villains so that she would be free to live life the way she wanted; this is shown when she refused to be Overhaul's subordinate and attacked him. During her active role in the League, she was shown to be quite perceptive and suited for quick thinking, as shown when she deduced Izuku Midoriya had been the one to defeat Muscular and he needed to be put down and was the one that created the idea to go after the students after they rescued Katsuki Bakugo.


Magne easily defeats Pixie-Bob.

Overall Abilities: Magne had proven herself to be a very capable villain, coupled with the good handling she has on her Quirk, Magnetism, which she uses for both offense and support. With the help of two allies that are of the same gender as each other, Magne could apply her Quirk abilities to launch one of them away from the other. Magne can also use her Quirk to surprise enemies, drawing them into close-combat range. According to Tiger, Magne's abilities garnered her a reputation of pulling off multiple top-tier crimes: 9 armed robberies, 3 murders, and 29 attempted murders.

During the Vanguard Action Squad Invasion, Magne ambushed Pixie-Bob by drawing her in and knocking her unconscious using the giant magnet the magnetokinetic carries. Magne attempted the do the same to Mandalay, but was intercepted by Tiger. While engaging Tiger, Magne was able to dodge his multitude of attacks and block one of his punches with ease. As Magne was able to predict Tiger's movements, the attack evasion continued for several minutes, until Magne got into an argument with Spinner over letting Izuku flee, giving Tiger the opening to knock Magne to the ground with one punch. Magne rose to her feet afterward, but was taken by surprise when Tiger used his Pliabody Quirk to wrap himself around the villain, successfully restraining Magne. In the midst of the Kamino Incident, Magne aided her teammates in a last-ditch effort to recapture Katsuki, but they were cut off by Mt. Lady, and incapacitated by Gran Torino. When the League of Villains came in contact with Overhaul and refused his offer to serve under him, Magne managed to take the yakuza leader by surprise by magnetizing him and reeled him in for an attack, but she was killed by Overhaul as a result.

  • Enhanced Strength: Magne was shown to possess above-average strength as she was able to block a punch from Tiger, who has his own high physical strength.


The southern polar members of the League of Villains being attracted to the northern polar Himiko.

Magnetism: Kenji's Quirk allowed her to apply strong magnetic polarity to people around her within a 4.5-meter radius. She could magnetize a person's entire body or specific portions. Men are polarized south, and women are polarized north. Magne couldn't magnetize herself. She can use this quirk in conjunction with her weapon, a large magnet, to magnetize enemies and use the magnet to draw them in using their respective polarity. This can be used to brutal efficiency, especially with her strength.

Super Moves
