    Shigaraki Tomura last edited by Phantom25 on 04/02/23 12:22AM View full history


    Shigaraki Tomura has an arrogant, twisted personality. He has been compared to a child, feeling as though the world revolves around him with little to no regard to human life, but his own. While childish he has shown a high level of intelligence, and analytical skills. He was able to deduce that All might was in fact becoming weaker. Shiagarki has also been shown to be impatient and irritable, which is shown when he attempts to kill the new members of the Villian Alliance because they annoyed him.

    Due to a trauma from his childhood he would hold back his abilities and block out the memories of the event.

    As time passed, he would lose allies, his master and encounter other villains to secure the position his master once held as the ruler of Japan's underworld. Upon his meeting with Kyudai Garaki he'd announce his changed goal: To destroy all of society except for what his allies want. Following this and his battle with the MLA he'd recover his lost memories and mature as a villain.
