Equipped Hero: Yoroi Musha (具足ヒーロー ヨロイムシャ Gusoku Hīrō Yoroimusha?) is the current No. 9 Pro Hero.[1]


Yoroi Musha is an elderly-looking man with a long white beard and pale orange eyes. His Hero Costume is a full set of Japanese armour with a red cape wrapped around his torso. His helmet notably has one large horn pointing upwards.[1]


Not much is known about Yoroi Musha's personality at this time, but in can be inferred from his reaction to his lowered ranking and short interview at the Hero Billboard Chart JP that he is a firm believer in the traditional role a hero plays in society.[1][2]


Pro Hero Arc

Yoroi Musha is introduced during the announcement of the top hero rankings of the year's second semester. He muses that aside from the top 3, all the other ranks are determined simply by timing and luck.[1] When asked to make a statement to the audience, Yoroi simply replies that his duty has not changed.[3]

Endeavor Agency Arc

During Hero Work-Studies II he interns Mina, Toru and Yuga.[4]

Paranormal Liberation War Arc

Yoroi Musha is one of the Heroes who assaults the Paranormal Liberation Front's hideout, the Gunga Mountain Villa.[5]


Overall Abilities: Yoroi Musha's combat capabilities are entirely unknown at present, but, since he ranked ninth in the Billboard Chat JP, it can be safely assumed that he is a very capable Pro Hero.


Unknown Quirk: Yoroi Musha's Quirk is currently unknown.
