Setsuna Tokage to her teammates in "Early Bird!"

This article is about the student from Class 1-B. For the former Instant Villain, see Rapt Tokage.

Setsuna Tokage ( () (かげ) (せつ) () Tokage Setsuna?), also known as Lizardy (リザーディ Rizādi?),[1] is a student in Class 1-B at U.A. High School, where she got in through recommendations,[2] and is training there to become a Pro Hero.


Setsuna is a young girl of average height who has surprisingly large, upturned dusky green eyes with long lower eyelashes, and notably long and pointed teeth. Her hair is a dark moss green, collectively reaching just below her shoulders aside from a short clump that hangs in the center of her forehead, and it grows wavier and thinner the lower down it gets.

Her hero costume consists of a purple, scaly mask over her eyes, a simple bodysuit with a matching design and black knee-high boots. She wears finger gloves with orange, three-piece wrist-guards, and a belt around her waist with what looks to be a jewel embedded into the center.



Setsuna is described as chatty, confident, and extremely provocative and talkative. She is one of the few students in Class 1-B that does not bear any apparent hatred to Class 1-A.

As shown in the Joint Training Arc, Setsuna is a wily and thoughtful girl with great aptitudes at leadership and cooperation. She is careful, concerned and attentive. Her attitude is different in combat and non-combat situations, having a more dirty and serious disposition when in the midst of battle.[2] However, she underestimates her foes, as she expected Katsuki to go off on his own but sees him lead his team effectively and win.

Setsuna is a reliable person; her teammates believe in her and don't hesitate to follow her. She seems to have a considerable influence on her classmates, which implies that she has probably proven several times that she is trustworthy and responsible. Because of her strong personality and skills, Setsuna has total confidence in herself and her potential. She doesn't doubt or hesitate, appearing to be very strong-willed.[3]


Overall Abilities: Setsuna is a recommended student, implying she has a high level of skill. Her classmates greatly respect her abilities, and have said that Setsuna is the most skilled and talented student of her class. Setsuna is also considered a polyvalent combatant, efficient and sharp at doing several things, simultaneously. Her Quirk, Lizard Tail Splitter, can be used for spying (by separating parts of her eyes to get multiple viewpoints) and long range combat, making her pivotal for tracking and espionage missions. Setsuna's autonomous body parts by themselves are said to be weak, but are difficult to defend against due to being small targets. Setsuna is overall a highly capable, confident, and creative individual that has established as being one of Class 1-B's elites, and one of the most gifted students of her generation.

Neito Monoma stated that Setsuna has the potential to defeat Katsuki Bakugo, one of the strongest students in Class 1-A, because her Quirk renders her invulnerable while she is split apart. But it in the penultimate round of the Joint Training Battle, she was defeated by the explosive student, disproving Neito's claims, albeit still the retaining her rank as one of the strongest students in Class 1-B. Her abilities eventually garnered the attention of the Magic Hero: Majestic, giving Setsuna the opportunity to intern under the (now deceased) top-grade Pro Hero, and improve her predictive skills and ability to act efficiently.

Keen Intellect: Setsuna is shown to possesses an excellent intellect and a very impressive strategic mind. During her fight against Katsuki's team, she has shown to be also foresighted, strategical and highly observant. Setsuna came up with a multi-step plan to defeat Katsuki’s team that would have branching strategies to trap them no matter what action they took. She predicted the approach they were going to take advantage of their strengths and formation. She wanted to exploit the skills of her opponents for her own sake. Setsuna is wily, reactive, and a quick thinker, with a strong degree of creativity and tries to be as unpredictable as possible. She uses her Quirk in a very tactical way to distract her enemies or to have a perfect control of the area. Her tactical skills and sense of observation are the best in her class. She takes all factors into account to try to dominate the situation by being faster at organization and preparation.

However, Setsuna's great reliance on detail and organization comes with a weakness in improvisation and adaptability. When the initial attack against Katsuki's team failed to capture any of them, she was unable to adapt to the changing circumstances and their strong comeback, which proved to be a factor in her team's defeat.

  • Leadership Skills: Setsuna seems to be an excellent leader, in which she proved to be capable at leading others during fights and critical situations.


Setsuna's body split into pieces.

Lizard Tail Splitter (トカゲのしっぽ () Tokage no Shippokiri?):[4] Setsuna's Quirk allows her to split up her body into as many as 50 pieces.[3] She is able to remotely make each and every one of these pieces move freely and levitate through the air at high speeds. Setsuna's pieces can also regenerate if they are destroyed or otherwise become unusable.

Her pieces will stop moving if they are separated for too long, in which case they will regenerate. If she reattaches the pieces before they go still, then their time limit will reset.

The regeneration ability of her Quirk is very exhausting for her, which is why she prefers to recall as many of her body parts back as possible in order to conserve her energy.

Organic Hero Costume: Setsuna's costume is made of her own cells, which means that it can regenerate alongside her destroyed body parts.[1]
