Sickle Claw (?) is an F-rank villain,[1] and is one of roughly seventy villains recruited by the League of Villains for the U.S.J. Incident, making him a minor antagonist of the U.S.J. Arc.


Sickle Claw is a short man with a very deformed appearance. He has a bald, elongated head with a wide set of teeth, and his eyes are spaced outward connected by stalks. His hands are solid iron, with his fingers being replaced with four large claws.

He wears a dark blue sleeveless gi and matching dark blue loafers. In My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero, he is depicted with larger claws that snake up part of his forearm, and he also wears a light blue belt with his outfit.


Not much is known about his personality. Given he is one of the many villains willing to challenge the staff at U.A. High School, he can be assumed to be quite confident of his abilities.


U.S.J. Arc

Sickle Claw is one of the several villains who invade the U.S.J. led by Tomura Shigaraki.[2] Shota Aizawa confronts them to protect the students and when he is wounded by Tomura Shigaraki with his Decay Quirk, Sickle Claw and other villains take the opportunity to attack him, but the hero defeats them easily.[3] He is later arrested when the Pro Heroes arrive.



Iron Claws ( (てっ) (そう) Tessō?): Sickle Claw's Quirk gives him long, sharp metallic claws on his fingers.[1]
