Shinji is a young man with a rather muscular build, standing relatively shorter than other high-ranked Pro Hero. Underneath his helmet, he has puffy leaf-like hair, though his face is unknown since he has only been shown while wearing a mask. His hero costume is a dark blue bodysuit that includes a wooden belt, wooden knee pads, and wooden shoes. A small bundle of roses hangs from the left side of his belt.
After he officially became the No. 7 Pro Hero, his costume was slightly modified, and he now has two wooden rings hanging on his shoulders, which have stumps and branches protruding from them.
Shinji is a very serious and focused person when it comes to being a hero in his hero duties; however, he easily feels down when someone takes his glory or credit. At the same time, he also appears to be rather emotional, as when he was invited by Edgeshot to be part of The Lurkers, he cried in happiness for two hours.
Overall Abilities: Shinji has grown to be an incredibly strong hero during his career as a hero, earning him the spot at the No. 7 ranked hero on the JP Billboard Charts. His skills have led some to believe that he will be a standout hero of the next generation.
- Lacquered Chain Prison (
先 制 必 縛ウルシ 鎖 牢Sensei Hitsubaku Urushi Sarō?): Shinji shoots out the wood from one of his arms and surrounds the enemy with it to immobilize them. This move is first used against an unnamed enemy.
