Tsubasa ( (つばさ) Tsubasa?) was a friend of Katsuki Bakugo as a child who helped him bully Izuku Midoriya for not having a Quirk.[1] He is also the grandson of Dr. Tsubasa, the doctor who diagnosed a young Izuku as Quirkless.


In the flashback, Tsubasa is a plump child, with a rounded face and brown hair almost completely shaved. Due to his Quirk, from his back emerge two red and draconic wings.

As a child, he wore a tank top, green shorts, and sandals.


Not much is known about his personality, but it is known that he was a bully because as a child, he, alongside Katsuki Bakugo, often beat up and belittled Izuku Midoriya for being Quirkless.



Unnamed Wing Quirk: Tsubasa's Quirk allows him to grow a pair of red, dragon-like wings from his back that allow him to fly.
