Today's my debut! Pleased to meet you all! You can call me Mt. Lady!Mt. Lady in "Izuku Midoriya: Origin"
Yu is a curvy young woman who has purple eyes with white pupils and elegantly long eyelashes. She has prolonged, voluminous, creamy blonde hair reaching down to her waist with two shorter strands curled to frame her face, parted slightly to her right.
Her hero costume is composed of a purple and pale tan-colored skintight bodysuit, which is accented with orange stripes. The suit appears to have a pair of purple gloves with orange accents on the edge of the cuff. The design is similar for her "boots" which are cut off at the thigh in a deep v-shape. The suit also has three peculiar orange diamond-shaped dots on the purple top that are located under her chest, and she also wears a purple domino mask with horn-like protrusions on the sides.
Yu is a young woman who seems to enjoy the attention that being a hero gives her and she doesn't feel any shame from having to take that fame from another hero while basking in the glory. She is also shown to be quite vain as she uses her ample sex appeal to further her popularity or to gain something. This vanity also shows a bit of shamelessness, as she isn't above making a lewd pun about her own body. During Minoru Mineta's internship, she also appears to be very lazy because she forced him to work instead of teaching him. Furthermore, she also has a lecherous side, as seen when she takes interest in Shoto Todoroki.
However, she is not careless, as shown that she will not transform into her giant form in confined spaces in fear of destroying nearby buildings and risk harming civilians as she is careful when fighting a villain who has taken hostages. Despite her vanity, she has shown to be selfless as she stopped Mr. Compress from reaching Izuku Midoriya's group after they saved Katsuki Bakugo even though she was already severely injured from All For One's attack. She also protected a group of civilians from All Might's Detroit Smash shock wave during her debut. This shows that despite her faults she is serious about being a hero and takes her job seriously.
Following All Might's retirement and Endeavor taking stand as the new No. 1 hero, Yu appears to have taken a rather more serious standing to her occupation as a hero rather than just being focused on the attention she receives, as noted by Minoru. Shota Aizawa claims that this is the effect Endeavor's uprising has had on many Pro Heroes. Furthermore, unlike her comrade Death Arms, she didn't quit after the Paranormal Liberation War in spite of the rising hatred against heroes, assisting in the operation to track down All For One and demonstrating her commitment.
Seduction: Yu is a prominent user of the seductive arts, using her looks to get what she wants. This was shown when she convinced a stand vender at the U.A. Sports Festival to give her free food.
Keen Intellect: Despite not being shown using any strategy in combat, Yu still proved that she is a hero that can grasp the context quickly. She can observe and understand what plan her allies are having, and provide any possible support at critical moments without being told beforehand, such as when she protected Izuku's group as mentioned above, or when she tried to pry Gigantomachia's mouth to help the U.A. High School students put the sedative into his mouth.
She cannot variate between her base-height and the gigantified height achieved via her Quirk, making her only able to be either her normal height of 162cm or her enlarged height 2,062cm tall.
- Canyon Cannon (キャニオンカノン Kyanion Kanon?): While in her giant form, Mt. Lady performs a flying kick.
- Titan Cliff (タイタンクリフ Taitan Kurifu?): Mt. Lady grows into her giant form and headbutts the enemy. Mt. Lady used this move to intercept Mr. Compress when he tried to chase after Katsuki.
Size Changing Suit: Yu wears a suit that gigantifies and returns to normal size as she does.
Battles & Events
|Battles & Events|
- Yu was created from using Ochaco Uraraka's original prototype concept. From the sketch on the left, Yu's hair was shorter and blue, had no horns, and a different costume design.
- Yu's name has the kanji for "tall mountain or mountain peak" (岳 take?), "mountain" (山 yama?), and "superiority" (優 yū?).
- Yu's name, hero name and Super Move names all reference geographical landforms.
- Yu's Japanese voice actress, Kaori Nazuka, also voices Toru Hagakure.
- According to Yu's Volume 10 profile:
- Yu's favorite fruit are peaches.
- Yu started her own Hero Agency at a young age, and despite her high number of successes, she causes unintentional destruction to the city thanks to her Quirk. While she works hard to earn money for the reparations, she ends up causing destruction again and this cycle ends up repeating itself. Her hard work is also what brought her into the Hideout Raid Team.
- Yu might have been inspired by Western superheroes and supervillains like Stature, Giganta or Garganta.
- Yu also shares many visual similarities with Stature, including costume and hair.
- Yu, Giganta, and Garganta all have the ability to increase their entire physical size to a giant size. Stature also shares that ability but can also decrease her physical size.
- Yu shares the same first name as Eight Bullets member Yu Hojo. However, the kanji symbols for their names are different and therefore have different pronunciations.
