I live every day of my life like there's no tomorrow so that when my number's up, I can check out with no regrets! No way this horde of zombies is gonna end Mirko the Hero.Rumi Usagiyama in "Mirko, the No. 5 Hero"
Rumi has an athletic build with muscular arms and legs, who stands slightly below average height. Rumi has dark skin, red eyes which are tilted slightly inwards, long eyelashes, and straight white hair that used to reach down past her waist, but she had later cut short. On her head, she has a pair of long white rabbit ears pointing upwards with a slight crook. Along with these, she also has a white round tail, which gives her overall design a definite resemblance to an albino rabbit.
Her hero costume consists of a sleeveless white leotard with dark purple trim around her shoulders and waist, a wide, yellow crescent moon design over her chest, and a single thick metal plate wrapped around her midriff. She wears purple thigh-high boots to compliment her leotard, with more plating around the heel and toe areas, making her feet look like those of a rabbit. She also has a pair of thick white gloves on her hands with long cuffs, sporting small triangular protrusions around their edges.
During the Jaku General Hospital raid, her left forearm was crushed and her right shin was stabbed by the High-End Nomu, while the tip of her right ear was sliced off. In the aftermath of the War, she now possesses a prosthetic left forearm and right leg, which are interchangeable in case they get destroyed.
Rumi is tough and speaks her mind, even if it causes confrontation, and she respects those who do the same. Rumi seems to believe that heroes who join teams are cowards, as they could just be relying on their teammates' strength rather than their own. As a hero, she proves to be very fearless and independent, freely traversing Japan while bravely facing any villain she comes across.
Despite her brash demeanor, Rumi isn't above assisting others as she came to the aid of Endeavor and Hawks after seeing their battle with Hood on the news. She also requested Endeavor's help while fighting a villain on one occasion, showing that she isn't unwilling to ask for help from other heroes despite her solo disposition.
Rumi embraces life-threatening situations with a bright grin and is constantly searching for the next big adrenaline kick, smiling in the face of danger. She does not back down, even when she is overpowered by stronger enemies, claiming to only be getting warmed up. Rumi also appears to take every day of her life with no regrets, admitting she'd risk her life for the greater good. Her great devotion and bravery even earned her the respect of Endeavor, who vowed to finish Rumi's work and defeat the villains in her stead when the Rabbit Hero was left unable to fight.
Rumi is capable of enduring extreme pain without losing focus and faces her own wounds reluctantly. She is pragmatic and quick thinking, as she binds off her bloodstream with her own thick hair, to keep fighting without her arm.
Overall Abilities: As the No. 5 Pro Hero, Rumi is more powerful than most other Pro Heroes. Her hearing capability is outstanding, as she was even able to locate her target through minimal noise. She was also shown to be capable of multitasking, as she simultaneously attacks, dodges, and concludes information about the enemies.
- Enhanced Strength: Rumi has proved to possess incredible physical strength, being able to easily defeat several Nomus and to break down the huge metal gate that kept Kyudai Garaki's secret laboratory. Remarkably, she was able to momentarily incapacitate some of the High-End Nomu and sever one of their heads. However, after they started to stabilize, she was quickly overwhelmed by them to the point that she was prepared to die and decided to finish off Doctor Garaki to take him with her.
- Enhanced Speed: In conjunction with her level of physical strength, Rumi possesses an equally impressive amount of speed. Her speed allowed her to reach Kyudai's laboratory in just a few minutes, being barely slowed by the Nomus that tried to stop her. She was also fast enough to keep up with the High-End Nomu, but once they began to stabilize, Rumi was unable to land any more blows on the High-Ends.
- Enhanced Dexterity: Rumi has shown to possess incredible control over her limbs and body, as seen when she fights multiple High-Ends.
- Enhanced Agility: Rumi has shown to have incredible agility.
- High Pain Tolerance: During the Hospital Raid, Rumi's left forearm was crushed and she was forced to cut it off completely, yet continued to engage in extremely intense combat without issue. Even after sustaining further injuries, she was still able to seemingly ignore the pain enough to achieve her objective and destroy Tomura's container.
- Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Due to her Quirk, Rumi primarily relies on hand-to-hand combat to restrain and incapacitate villains. Thanks to her strong legs, she heavily favors kicks in her fighting style, matched with incredible speed and the ability to build up momentum by jumping from one spot to the next.
- Intuition: As seen during the heroes raid against Kyudai's hospital and against the High-End Nomu's, Rumi showcased to have immensely sharp instincts and intuition, with her having been able to detect the severe danger Tomura Shigaraki possessed despite him being medically deceased.
- Luna Ring (
踵月輪Runa Ringu?): Rumi uses her incredible leg strength to kick multiple targets simultaneously as she performs a cartwheel in the air with her legs extended.
- Luna Fall (
月墜蹴Runa Fōru?): Rumi swings her foot downwards while she is above her opponent, driving her target straight into the ground beneath her feet with a mighty kick.
- Luna Tijeras (
月頭鋏Runa Tihera?): Rumi mounts onto her opponent's head and grips them tightly with her legs before twisting her body, pulling with all of her superhuman leg strength to rip her opponent's head cleanly off and then smashing it into the ground.
- Luna Arc (
踵半月輪Runa Āku?): Rumi raises her leg and delivers a powerful front-facing axe kick on to her opponent.
