Number 6 (
Number 6 is a young man with a fairly athletic physique, long black hair gathered in a ponytail, and a perpetual smirk on his face. His most distinctive feature is a long scar that goes diagonally across his face and over his nose, which he gave to himself as a homage to O'Clock.
When allowing Bomber cells to merge with his arms, or using Overclock to regrow an arm out of Bomber cells, the respective arm becomes the same color as that of the Bombers' bodies, with growths appearing on them as well as miniature Bomber faces.
Number 6 has a great ability to disguise, using the Bomber cells in conjunction with his Overclock Quirk, to transform his face, being able to pass himself off as another person. His facial features change to become indistinguishable from his normal ones, being able to even hide his characteristic scar perfectly. When his deception is discovered or just when he decides to stop his charade, he immediately reverts to normal.
In his hero costume, under his identity as the Hero "Rock", he wears a full-body suit similar to O'Clock but blue and yellow, with a trench coat similar to Knuckleduster and a black fedora hat. When he takes on the identity of O'Clock II, he ditches his trench coat and the hat and puts on a domino mask. He appears to have the Roman numeral II on his shoulders as symbols. His plain face as "Rokuro Nomura" was directly modeled after Koichi's.
His "true appearance", without transforming or wearing one of his many faces, has it completely crisped all over, appearing to also have no eyes with only the socket outlines remaining, similar to All For One's appearance, though still carrying his trademark scar.
In general, Number 6 has a confident and self-assured attitude, keeping calm in any situation, even when he is confronted with a gun. He prefers to avoid confrontation at all times, choosing to flee rather than fight, but he has no problem with using violence when the situation calls for it. He also has no qualms with endangering the lives of innocent people as a distraction or for his investigations with the Next-Level Villains.
He can be quite vengeful, as seen when the police wound him with rubber bullets. Instead of running away, he chooses to use his Quirk to take their pistols and shoot them with their own rubber bullets. He doesn’t aim to kill, rather he decides to shoot them only to seriously injure them, although he doesn’t worry about the possibility that some of them could die afterwards due to injuries. This could mean that he doesn’t like to get blood on his hands directly, but otherwise doesn’t care much about collateral damage.
Number 6 also proves to have a certain level of self-centeredness and narcissism, having things that get him to lose his composure and cool. One of them is when he is injured in the face, even receiving the slightest scratch from a foe is enough to drive him into a murderous rage. He holds the scar on his face with extreme pride, and thinks that another wound may ruin his looks and distract from his self-inflicted "cool, character-defining scar".
The other thing that makes him very angry is seeing his plans fail. This could be verified when the heroes repel his Bombers in the attack on the Tokyo Sky Egg. Being unable to tolerate seeing his enemies triumphing, he has one of his creatures self-destruct, destroying the supporting tower to cause the Sky Egg to collapse, which would kill thousands of people. In other words, he would kill a lot of people with no remorse on a temper tantrum.
Despite this, when Number 6 uses his skills for disguise and infiltration, he is perfectly capable of acting as a totally different person, hiding his true colors and intentions, and deceiving others. For example, when he is "Rokuro Nomura", he acts as the clumsy but well-meaning and polite Marukane Performers' manager, without anyone suspecting that there is anything weird about him.
Number 6's primary goal and desire is creating a true identity for himself, feeling like a nameless, hollow shell upon being "created" by the Villain Factory, and desperate for some semblance of meaning. His obsession with O'Clock is linked to this desire, as it inspires his dream to become a Pro Hero, specifically O'Clock's successor, as "Rock" or "O'Clock II", even to the point of intending to use his revenge against Kazuho and Koichi as part of his heroic origin story.
After this plan fails, however, he spirals further into madness, imagining an illusion of his "master" O'Clock, which acts as the calm and collected logical side of his brain, while his outer personality remains psychotic and overly proactive. His obsessions also drive him to be conflicted with himself, through the easy logical choice of remaining "anonymous", and his desire to stand out.
Body Modifications: Number 6 has been modified by the Villain Factory to possess enhanced physical and mental capabilities, as well as pain endurance which allows him to shrug off being shot through the shoulder.
- Enhanced Durability: Number 6 was able to withstand falling three floors while unable to land safely due to his legs having been shot, having his face mauled by Knuckleduster, and then a point-blank detonation which blew off one of his arms.
- Pain Suppression: Number 6's bodily tinkering's have rendered him close to null to any sensation of discomfort. As he's explained to the former Overclocking hero after blowing off his own hand using the Bomber Parasites.
- Amorphous Physiology: Due to the parasitism of the bomber villains encroaching most of his bodily mass. Number 6 now not only boasts his deviated appearance but now has a more gelatinous anatomy, allowing him to liquidate and reform his physical body at will.
- Disguise Capability: Number 6 is able to alter himself to easily infiltrate any situation he desires, whether that's pretending to work as a part-timer for Kanidoge, as the new manager for the Marukane Performers, or even as an archivist at the police station. Stating this is the benefit of his body being mostly comprised of Bomber Cells; accepting commands sent straight from his brain to make his corpora assume whatever shape or form he desires.
- Muscle Enhancement: Number 6 is able to bulk up his muscles at will to gain a high degree of physical strength, being able to lift Octoid into the air with one arm and completely shred his own outfit's long sleeves from the force of his muscles.
- Clawed Limbs: Number 6 is able to turn his hands and feet into claws.
Overclock (オーバークロック Ōbākurokku?): Given to him by All For One, Number 6's Quirk gives him the power to accelerate his perception of time to extreme speeds to the point that, to him, it looks like everything is standing still, allowing him to see, hear, and think at hyper-speed. It also increases his physical speed as a result.
His speed allows him to deliver as many as eight blows in an instant, though by pushing himself past his limit, he is fast enough to deliver more punches, though hurting himself in the process.
He can also utilize Overclock to accelerate cell growth, allowing him to regrow his arms and the Bomber parasites which inhabit his body.
In order to be used without "brain drain", the Quirk must be given a cool-down time of ten seconds.
- Heightened Focus: Thanks to his Quirk, Number 6 has been shown to be able to clearly hear words that have been sped up by three hundred times.
- Parallel Processing: Through the Overclocking Quirk, 6 can operate at higher brain function than normally possible. He uses this to supplement his control over the hive mind established with his Bomber Villains.
Regeneration (再生 Saisei?): Number 6 possesses incredible healing power, the likes of which allow him to heal from shotgun wounds in mere moments, mend from severe burns, and even regenerate lost limbs after using self-destruction consecutive times. His Overclock Quirk also allows him to speed up the regeneration process.
Self-Detonation (爆発 Bakuhatsu?): Thanks to having Bomber cells parasitically inhabiting him, this Quirk allows Number 6 to make the parts of his body self-destruct. Using this Quirk destroys the body part, but thanks to his body-modifications and Regeneration Quirk, he is able to grow them back.
Electromagnetic Waves (電磁波 Denjiha?): This Quirk allows Number 6 the ability to generate electromagnetic pulses, which are able to shut down the power and communications within an area. This is another Quirk originally possessed by the Bombers.
Bombify (爆弾化 Bakudan-ka?): This Quirk allows Number 6 to control the Bomber cells in his body and grow bombs all over parts of his body, which in conjunction with his Detonation Quirk, he can use to explode however he wants.
- Instant Eight (瞬間8撃 Shunkan 8-geki?): Number 6 delivers eight punches in an instant using his acceleration. This is the most he can accomplish without hurting himself.
- Crawler Style (
CRAWLER STYLEKurōrā Sutairu?): Inspired by The Crawler, Number 6 goes on all fours in order to combat wind resistance and reach greater speeds.
