Thirteen vs. Kurogiri is a battle fought between the Rescue Hero: Thirteen and the Warp Villain: Kurogiri during the U.S.J. Incident.


Kurogiri warps Class 1-A.

Having been suddenly ambushed by dozens of villains, Thirteen and Shota Aizawa try to evacuate Class 1-A from the U.S.J. facility. After Shota descends to the central plaza to fight back against the invading villains, Kurogiri slips past him by using his warping Quirk to appear before the students and Thirteen.

Kurogiri introduces himself and the League of Villains before inquiring about the whereabouts of All Might. Thirteen tries to use her Quirk, but Katsuki and Eijiro jump out and attack Kurogiri.

The warp villain remains unscathed from their assault and counterattacks by warping all of Class 1-A across the U.S.J.'s various zones. This leaves Kurogiri with only Thirteen and a few remaining students.[1]


Thirteen is defeated.

Thirteen encourages Tenya to escape the facility and bring back reinforcements from U.A.'s main campus. Kurogiri mocks the heroes for voicing their strategy so openly and Thirteen replies that it does not matter what Kurogiri knows once they're done fighting. Thirteen activates her Black Hole Quirk and starts to pull Kurogiri into her finger.[2]

Kurogiri effectively counters the intense gravity by creating a warp gate behind Thirteen. As a result, Thirteen's Quirk is turned on its head and it rips open the back of the hero's suit. Thirteen deactivates her Quirk and falls to the ground defeated.[3]


Thirteen is left severely injured and incapacitated on the ground. While Mina and Ochaco check on the Rescue Hero's condition, Tenya makes a break for the door. Kurogiri chases him, and when he is about to cause Tenya to warp away, Ochaco grabs onto Kurogiri's plates around his neck (after surmising that those plates are part of his real body) and uses her Zero Gravity Quirk to make the plates float, causing Kurogiri to go into the air. Then, Hanta uses his Tape to catch Kurogiri in the air, and with Rikido's help, they take him away from Tenya, ensuring his escape to call for backup. Kurogiri declares the villains' plans ruined and warps back to Tomura's side.[4]
