Locust (バッタ Batta?)[1] is the Quirk used by Ichiro and Jiro Hotta.


Locust allows both Hotta brothers with the ability to transform into a large humanoid grasshoppers, increasing their physical capabilities. However, they have only been seen using this Quirk after injecting doses of unadulterated Trigger, so the Quirk's true capabilities are unknown.


The Hotta brothers use Locust primarily for combat, as the boost provided by Trigger increases their strength, agility, and jumping ability. Both brothers work well together, being able to perform synchronized combo attacks.
