Synopsis

Snipe (スナイプ Sunaipu?) is a Pro Hero a member of the teaching staff at U.A. High School. He is in charge of the third year students.[1]

Appearance

Snipe has the appearance of a stereotypical western cowboy. His face is covered by an old-school tan gas mask, shaped a little like a horse’s muzzle, with triangular holes for his eyes and silver ear-defenders wired to the sides of the mask, but his dark, blueish shoulder-length dreadlocks are always visible from the back and sides. On his head, he wears a brown cowboy hat with a thick metallic plate at the front, a large "S" (standing for "Snipe") stamped in the center, and gray boots with knee-high shafts and vamps with silver trims that dip a little at the front, a heel-band with a spur at the end attached to the back of each boot.

He wears a large red cloak, buttoned up at the top, with frayed ends, under which he wears a plain black tank top with white armor strapped over the right side of his torso, and a brown belt with a gun holster attached at his hip. He has baggy black or dark brown pants with light brown or yellow chaps over them in stereotypical cowboy fashion. On his arms, he wears black skin tight arm-guards going up to his biceps and on his hands, tan gloves.

Personality

Snipe's mannerisms (including his accent in the English dub of the anime) are similar to that of a traditional cowboy. He appears to be very knowledgeable and always has something intelligent to add to every faculty meeting for the U.A. teachers.

Abilities

Marksmanship Specialist: Befitting his name, Snipe possesses exceptional aim, being able to accurately shoot Tomura in his arms and legs while his own allies were right next to him.

Quirk

Homing (ホーミング Hōmingu?):[1] Snipe's Quirk allows him to lock on to any target he can see within six hundred meters and make any projectile he releases chase after said target. He cannot choose what part of the targets body his projectile hits and his attacks do not carry much strength.[2]

Equipment

Guns: Snipe possesses a pair of modified guns, which he is able to wield skillfully.

Smoke Grenades: Snipe possesses smoke grenades for concealing his movements or flushing enemies out of an area. These are also the reason for the gas mask on his costume.

High Density Weights (Final Exams Arc): Snipe and the rest of the teachers use these bracelets to give themselves a handicap while they are fighting their students.
