Synopsis
One must never neglect defense. Especially when attacking...
Shinya Kamihara to the League of Villains in "Clash"

Shinya Kamihara ( (かみ) (はら) (しん) () Kamihara Shin'ya?),[1] also known as the Ninja Hero: Edgeshot (忍者ヒーロー エッジショット Ninja Hīrō Ejjishotto?), is the former No. 5 Pro Hero, and the current No. 4 Pro-Hero.[2] He is also the leader of The Lurkers.

Appearance

Shinya is a slim, muscular man who stands a bit shorter than most of his top-class heroic peers. He has gray hair shaped into three sharp points that cover the right side of his face and dark gray eyes, and he wears a mask over his lower face, covering his nose and mouth.

Shinya's hero costume adapts the appearance of a traditional ninja. He wears a blue mask that covers his mouth, tied at the back of his head with red yarn. Shinya sports red shinobi shozoku underneath a blue robe. His arms are covered in a thin, dark cloth that tucks into his white forearm sleeves. There are red straps attached to his belt and his robe that extend outward.

Shinya has a gold mask attached to his shoulder and sports a signature red scarf that features a white patch attached to the front of it. Edgeshot finishes his costume with blue socks and yellow zori sandals.

Personality

Befitting the nature of a shinobi, Shinya is a calm and focused individual. He is able to maintain a level head even in crisis situations and consoles his teammates when they begin to panic.

Shinya is quite intelligent and is good at analyzing situations and strategies. He was able to discern the nature of All For One's warping Quirk after only seeing it in action once. Shinya is quick to take initiative to prevent conflict and is brave enough to take action in the worst of circumstances. In order to assist All Might, Shinya even took on the likes of All For One.

Abilities

Edgeshot and Endeavor team up to take on the incredibly powerful All For One.

Overall Abilities: Edgeshot was ranked 5th of Japan's Pro Heroes, before taking the spot of No. 4 after All Might's retirement. He fully mastered his Quirk, Foldabody, and incorporates his proficient Quirk handling into his ninja-style very well. Edgeshot flattens his body to pass through extremely tight spaces, including doors, creating secret passages. He can transform any section of his body at will, and often flattens it into multiple shapes to pierce his opponent's body. Edgeshot mainly uses his Quirk to strike quickly and incapacitate his opponents. He does this by folding his body into a thin blade that pierces through his opponent before they can even react. By cutting off the blood flow to their brain, Edgeshot can knock someone unconscious almost instantly. Edgeshot is also capable of fighting in mid-air by folding his body into a drill-like shape and maneuvering around his target.[3]

As he is ranked highly, Edgeshot is a very powerful hero, which has been proven in his fight against the League of Villains. During the Kamino Incident Edgeshot swiftly pierced the bodies of both Kurogiri and a low-tier Nomu, cutting off the blood circulation to their brains, effectively incapacitating the villains. In Kurogiri's case, Edgeshot incapacitated him before the former could warp anyone away. Magne noted how she couldn't even fathom what happened because of the Ninja Hero's speed.[4] Much later, Edgeshot showcased his camaraderie and mettle by tag-teaming with Endeavor in order to help a struggling All Might subdue the immensely powerful All For One, and emerge unscathed. Most remarkably, he was able to singlehandedly defeat Re-Destro, the former leader of the Meta Liberation Army and an immensely powerful villain, while only retaining moderate injuries.[5]

Tactical Intellect: Edgeshot has shown to be very intelligent, and possesses a strategic and analytical mind. When a horde of Nomus began to appear at the Villain's Hideout, Edgeshot surmised that the unexpected Warping was being performed by somebody else, which was proven to be correct, in the form of All For One.

Quirk

Edgeshot demonstrates his Quirk against a Nomu.

Foldabody ( () () Shishi?): Edgeshot's Quirk allows him to make his body and limbs extremely thin and long, effectively allowing him to transform himself into a razor-sharp string. He is able to transform faster than the speed of sound.

Edgeshot can use his Quirk to move around quickly, slip through tight spaces, and pierce targets by folding himself into sharp shapes.[4]

Super Moves

  • Fishhook Snag (釣り (かぎ) () Dzuri Kagite?): Edgeshot flattens and twists himself into a pointed string and then sends his arm to retrieve the enemy.[6]
  • Spiral Spear Hand (穿 (せん) (こう) () (せん) (ぬき) () Senkō Rasen Nuki-te?): Edgeshot flattens and twists himself into a pointed string and then pierces his opponent with his arm to halt their movement.[7]
  • Thousand Sheet Pierce ( (にん) (ぽう) (せん) (まい) (どお) Ninpō Senmaidōshi?): Edgeshot flattens and twists himself into a pointed string and then pierces his opponent before cutting off their blood flow and knocking them unconscious.[4]
