Laundry Hero: Wash (洗濯ヒーロー ウォッシュ Sentaku Hīrō Wosshu?) is the No. 8 Pro Hero.[2]

Appearance

Wash's hero costume resembles a washing machine with arms and legs protruding from his shell, and has two strained eyes popping out of the lid atop his head. His arms are covered by thick grey hoses with yellow rubber gloves with green grips on the ends. His lower half wears a pair of waterproof plants with a belt. He also wears large boots with a subtle wave pattern around the mouth, and circles on the outsoles where he can release bubbles from.

Personality

Wash generally shows himself in a child-friendly manner. Despite this, Wash takes his job very seriously and is not above being irritated, as shown when he chose to disinfect the wounds of angry civilians even after being criticized for arriving late, going so far to break character and talk normally while doing so.

History

My Hero Academia: Vigilantes

Sky Egg Arc

Wash was invited to participate in Captain Celebrity's farewell party at the Tokyo Sky Egg.[3] Once on stage, he performs some tricks with their Quirk on Gang Orca and his sidekicks.[4]

Synopsis

Pro Hero Arc

Wash was present at the biannual Hero Billboard Chart JP where it was announced he were ranked as the No. 8 Pro Hero.[2] When asked to give a comment on his placement, he simply responds with "Washa".[5]

Endeavor Agency Arc

Wash takes Koji Koda and Manga Fukidashi as trainees for Hero Work Studies 2. [6] The time he is with Wash was to help Koji improve his communication skills and control over animals.[7]

Paranormal Liberation War Arc

Next year, by the end of March, thanks to the police investigations, and the information leaked by Hawks, who was acting as a spy, the Hero Public Safety Commission organize the Heroes and the Police Force to take down the Paranormal Liberation Front.[8] Wash is one of the Pro Heroes who is a member of the hero team led by Endeavor in charge of raiding on Jaku General Hospital in order to arrest Dr. Kyudai Garaki and Tomura Shigaraki.

Wash trying to save as many people as possible.

Kyudai runs away to his secret laboratory, unleashing a horde of Nomu as he tries to awaken Tomura from his stasis. While half of the hero team face the Nomu, the other half, which Wash is part of, is in charge of evacuating patients, visitors and hospital staff from the building.[9][10] Unfortunately, the first team fails to prevent Tomura from waking up,[11] who immediately uses his Decay Quirk to destroy everything, killing dozens of heroes in the process.

Seeing the destruction, Wash immediately uses his Quirk to create huge bubbles with which to envelop the evacuees and float them in the air, saving them from the wave of decay.[12] Wash also manages to save himself and continues to help evacuate the civilians. Later, by the end of the Paranormal Liberation War, he and other surviving heroes try to stop "Tomura Shigaraki" as he tries to escape the battlefield alongside a handful of High-End Nomu. Unfortunately, they failed.[13]

Wash witnesses the consequences of the new social crisis

After his escape, "Tomura Shigaraki" attacks several prisons, freeing numerous villains. This, along with the consequences of the recent war, causes many Pro heroes to retire from the profession because they cannot withstand the pressure and social criticism. Many civilians have lost faith in heroes and decided to take matters into their own hands, acquiring support gears to face the growing wave of villains.

Following the days after the Paranormal Liberation War, Shian Prison escapees Cider House are on the loose, trying to rob a store when they are suddenly attacked by a group of civilians wielding support gears. Wash hears the report and heads to Shinjuku, only to arrive late and find that the fight was already over after causing horrific collateral damage to the neighborhood.

Wash is concerned about what happened, and while checking that the civilians were armed with Support Gear, he was hit in the head by a friying pan thrown at him by one of the nearby civilians caught in the crossfire, who begins to scold him for arriving too late. Though he is annoyed by this treatment, he nonetheless uses his super move Clean Bubbler to create bubbles to disinfect the wounded for transport to the hospital.[14]

Abilities

Quirk

Unnamed Soapy Water Quirk: Wash's Quirk allows him to create and control soapy water from his body. The stream is strong enough to keep several people in the air.[15] Wash can also use the Quirk to generate large soap bubbles that he uses to envelop targets and make them float.[12]

Super Moves

  • Clean Bubbler: Wash releases bubbles from his inner tank in order to disinfect and aid the wounds of the injured.[14]

Trivia

  • Wash has been in a "Squeaky Clean" commercial.[2]
  • His catchphrase seems to be "Washa".
  • Wash's physical design appears to be loosely based on that of Heat Man from Mega Man. The pose Wash is seen striking in Chapter 300's sketch is also a parody of the character.
