Pretty. So pretty. No. This is work. So alluring. But no. Can't... Pretty flesh. Gah! So enticing though... Gotta do the job.Moonfish in "Stake Your Life, Hero!"
Moonfish (ムーンフィッシュ Mūnfisshu?) is a villain affiliated with the League of Villains and also part of its Vanguard Action Squad. He and the rest of his team serve as the main antagonists of the Forest Training Camp Arc.
Moonfish is a fairly tall man who stands over most of his allies in terms of height. He has fair skin and black eyes. He is later shown to have a large cut on his left ear and a completely shaven head. Most of his physical body cannot be seen because the suit he wears encompasses his entire body.
Moonfish wears a black straitjacket that only leaves his mouth exposed. The suit is held together by black restraints decorated with red spikes. These same restraints connect to metal clamps that cover Moonfish's head and keeps lips open, often causing him to drool. Other straps go across Moonfish's torso, waist and the top of his boots.
Moonfish is an insane, laconic individual who constantly talks to himself and is fascinated with consuming flesh. He has a habit of repeating key information to himself to stay focused on his objectives. Moonfish can get distracted if he encounters flesh, including living people or severed limbs. His obsession even leads him to closely inspect and admire Mezo Shoji's arm after Moonfish severed it.
Moonfish's actions are almost completely dictated by his crazed obsession. He likely only joined the League of Villains to gain access to more flesh rather than following the ideology left behind by Stain. Moonfish warned Shoto Todoroki and Katsuki Bakugo not to get in the way of his work because their flesh would distract him. During the ensuing fight, Moonfish constantly told them to show him their flesh. He also attacked Dark Shadow out of anger because it interrupted the aforementioned fight and deprived Moonfish of his "prize".
Overall Abilities: Being one of the strongest members of the Vanguard Action Squad, Moonfish exhibits great experience and skill while in battle. Shoto and Katsuki, two students who are considered to be more powerful than the average Pro-Hero, could barely defend against Moonfish's onslaught. Though it should be noted that both students were hindered in using their fire-based Quirks whilst being in a burning forest. It took the full power of Fumikage Tokoyami's Dark Shadow to defeat Moonfish in a single attack.
