Toru Hagakure ( () (がくれ) (とおる) Hagakure Tōru?), also known as the Stealth Hero: Invisible Girl (ステルスヒーロー インビジブルガール Suterusu Hīrō Inbijiburu Gāru?), is a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.

Appearance

Toru is a fairly short girl with a completely invisible body. She is only identifiable through held or worn objects, like pieces of clothing and accessories, and when clothed, her body appears to be slender yet fairly curvaceous.

Due to the nature of her Quirk, her hero costume consists only of a pair of light blue gloves, decorated by pale pink lines, and light brownish-gray lace-up shoes.

Her winter costume includes plain knee-high boots and slightly thicker-looking gloves with a different color scheme and design.

Personality

Toru is a bubbly, cheery, and easygoing girl that does most things with an upbeat attitude, even if manipulated to do so. She is very socially eager and appears to like shopping. Her room suggests that she likes plushies and other cute things.

Toru showing embarrassment at "undressing" in front of Mashirao.

She believes that taking off her clothes during battle is a tactical advantage, much to the awkwardness of those around her. That being said, she seems blissfully unaware of what it means to be invisible, such as displaying slight embarrassment at the idea of being watched undressing; a trait that shows up even when she's wearing her hero costume, which features almost no clothing in the first place.

In general, it appears Toru's invisible body is primarily used as a source of comic relief.

Abilities

Overall Abilities: Thanks to her Quirk, Invisibility, Toru greatly excels in espionage, making her the stealthiest student in Class 1-A. Toru can easily bypass regular visual detection, making her an ideal choice for ambushes, spy missions, and attack evasions. However, those advantages are only feasible if she devoids herself of clothing and/or equipment, as such objects don't become unseen like the rest of her body. Aside from her stealth capabilities, Toru also possess a degree of melee-combat abilities. Her primary fighting style consists of directly attacking her opponents with a barrage of punches, taking advantage of her total invisibility to launch surprise attacks that are extremely difficult to defend against. She also has good camaraderie, having her comrades run interface against opponents, and then using her incognito skills to initiate clandestine assaults, and vice versa. This comradeship allowed to Toru and Mezo Shoji to pass their First Term Final Exam, wherein the two were pitted against Snipe.

During the Provisional Hero License Exam, Toru developed photokinetic applications of her Quirk, and employed a new Super Move, "Warp Refraction", to effectively stun a large group of rival students. Her abilities eventually garnered the attention of the Equipped Hero: Yoroi Musha, giving Toru the opportunity to intern under the (now former) No. 9 Pro Hero, and improve her offensive and defensive abilities.

Quirk

Toru using her newly obtained light-manipulating abilities to redirect Yuga's Navel Laser.

Invisibility ( (とう) (めい) () Tōmeika?): Toru's Quirk is that her body is completely invisible.

In addition to the stealth capabilities granted to her by her invisible body, Toru can refract light that passes through her, allowing her to intensify the light into a blinding flash.[1] After her Hero Work-Studies with Yoroi Musha, Toru has further refined this application of her Quirk, achieving the ability to manipulate and redirect light based attacks, such as Yuga Aoyama's Navel Laser.[2]

As part of her training, she worked on improving her stealth prowess by remaining undetected from the sensory-efficient Mezo.

Super Moves

  • Warp Refraction ( (しゅう) (こう) (くっ) (せつ) : ハイチーズ Shūkō Kussetsu: Hai Chīzu?): Toru warps sunlight into bright flashes to temporarily blind opponents.

Trivia

Early concept for Toru's hero costume.

  • Originally, Toru's costume had more trinkets to it than just a pair of gloves and boots. She was supposed to wear some sort of mask with a smiling face on it, and her gloves were meant to have mirror-like objects tied to them.
  • According to Toru's Volume 2 profile:
    • Toru was supposed to be a male character at first, but Horikoshi changed her into a female because he thought a girl having an invisible body was a funnier concept. There was also a lack of female characters at the time.
    • Toru's favorite food are caramels.
    • Toru's favorite things are dokkiri (hidden-camera surprise pranks) shows.
  • Toru's surname contains the kanji for "leaf" ( ha?) and "to disappear" ( gakure?), and her first name contains "transparent" ( tōru?).
    • When read as one word, Toru's surname means "hidden in leaves" (葉隠 hagakure?). This is likely a reference to the following quote by G.K. Chesterton: "Where does a wise man hide a leaf? In the forest."
  • Toru's known U.A. data are as follows:
    • Student No. 16 in Class 1-A.
    • Ranked 18th during the Quirk Apprehension Test.
    • Ranked 16th in Class 1-A's grades.[3]
    • Ranked in the top forty-two of the U.A. Sports Festival First-Year Stage.
  • In the first Popularity Poll, Toru ranked 20th, which tied her with Mei Hatsume.
  • Toru's Japanese voice actress, Kaori Nazuka, also voices Yu Takeyama.
  • Toru is the only Class 1-A character whose Quirk has not been formally introduced in the story, despite being always active. Horikoshi has noted this previously, on Volume 2, stating that he has not found the right time for it yet.
