Salaam (サラーム Sarāmu?) is the top Egyptian Pro Hero in My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission.


Salaam is a brown-skinned man with a two dimensional appearance, similar to human representations in ancient Egyptian art.

His hero costume is clearly inspired by the garments that the pharaohs of ancient Egypt used to wear, wearing a wraparound skirt called shendyt, a top of fine pleated robes, and covers his head with a striped headcloth called nemes. He also wears various jewelry items and a cape.


Not much is known about his personality at this time. He is said to be well-liked in Egypt.


The No. 1 Pro Hero in Egypt. He has a strange aura that makes the Egyptian citizens feel at ease when they see him fight, but to this day no one has ever seen his back.

Papyrus (パピルス Papirusu?): Salaam's Quirk allows him to turn his body paper-thin, allowing him to slip through narrow spaces and ride the wind.
