Kiruka Hasaki ( () (さき) (きる) () Hasaki Kiruka?), also known as Slice (スライス Suraisu?),[1] is a villain working with Nine in My Hero Academia: Heroes: Rising.


Kiruka appears to be a young woman with fair skin, blue eyes that slope inwards, and noticeably full, glossy lips. She also possesses straight, shiny red hair with chin-length bangs that partially obscure her right eye, the back part of which reaches down to her thighs while two front strands appear long enough to reach past her feet. She wears it tied together at the ends down her back, the two longer strands left to fall down to her knees before looping back up behind her.

Kiruka wears a pale purple blouse with frilled cuffs, the collar upturned, and a pearl string necklace of a similar color. Over this is a short, navy blue dress with a collar so low it dips all the way down to her waist, as well as a thick brown belt that's fastened in 3 places around her waist. She also wears dark red gloves and frilled, thigh-high socks of a purple color, a pair of black boots with knee-high protrusions worn over the top, two bands of red binding them to her calves around the back. Along with this, she sports a black choker with a small red circle in the center, as well as a black domino mask over her eyes.


Kiruka is shown to be a confident combatant when she taunts Fumikage Tokoyami during their battle.

She has a softer side where she worries about her teammates, Nine in particular after his first encounter with Izuku Midoriya and Katsuki Bakugo. She is also highly cooperative with her fellow teammates.


Kiruka demonstrates the widespread power of her Quirk.

Overall Abilities: Kiruka is very capable fighter, and like everyone else in Nine's group, she is powerful enough to take on multiple opponents by herself. Kiruka also possesses an excellent handle on her powerful Quirk, Slice, which allows her manipulate her hair in various ways: moving, hardening, elongating, and sharpening it for offensive and defensive purposes. Offensively, Kiruka can use her fortified mane as blades to cut through objects, or as projectiles for widespread attacks by shooting needle-like hair strands. Defensively, she uses her strengthened locks as a protective shield against incoming attacks. In addition, Kiruka can exploit her Quirk for mobility purposes by having her tresses act as stilts. Other than her Quirk handling, Kiruka possesses an impressive amount of agility and reflexes, using acrobatic maneuvers to evade attacks. She also has some expertise in hand-to-hand combat, which she uses in conjunction with her Quirk, making Kiruka all the more dangerous.

Kiruka can hold her own against a darkness-submerged Fumikage Tokoyami.

When Nine's team arrived on Nabu Island, Kiruka used her Quirk's projectile application to easily destroy all of the ships that were docked at the island's port. The next day, Kiruka and her remaining teammates, Nine and Chimera, were separated by Yuga Aoyama's "Can't Stop Twinkling: Supernova" and Momo Yaoyorozu's cannon assault, causing her to fall into an underground cavern wherein she battled Fumikage Tokoyami, a powerful hero-in-training, and Mina Ashido, a very agile fighter. During the battle, Kiruka was able to effortlessly fight on par with a "Black Abyss"-infused Fumikage, despite the Jet-Black Hero being submerged in darkness, in which his Quirk, Dark Shadow, is at its peak. While she defended herself against Mina's "Acid Shot", Kiruka's hair was left severely damaged and weakened, but was still able to simultaneously fend off Fumikage and immobilize the pink heroine. This was unfortunately Kiruka's undoing, as she inadvertently caused Fumikage to be rage-filled, resulting in Dark Shadow entering its berserker state. Kiruka began to struggle against the the dark entity, and while she succeeded in her desperate attempt to make the roof of the cavern collapse, she was viciously defeated by Fumikage's full power.


Kiruka uses her Quirk to manipulate her hair.

Slice (スライス Suraisu?): Kiruka's Quirk allows to move, harden, and sharpen her own hair. She is able to use her hair as blades, as well as fire off individual strands of it like needles. Kiruka can also use her hair for defensive purposes, as well as for mobility by using large locks of it as stilts.

Her hair still retains its chemical properties when it's modified, and can be destroyed if it comes into contact with any harmful materials.


Claw Gloves: Kiruka's gloves contain thin, retractable metal claws that unsheath from the fingertips, which can be used in hand-to-hand combat.

Blade Boots: The soles of Kiruka's boots can project two large metal blades that she uses in conjunction with her claws.
