Villain Overview

It's a pleasure to meet you, we are the League of Villains. I know it's impolite, but we decided to invite ourselves into this haven of justice to say hello. And besides, isn't this a fitting place for All Might the Symbol of Peace to take his last breath? I believe he was supposed to be here today and yet I see no sign of him. There must've been some sort of change in plans we could not have foreseen. Ah well, in the end I suppose it doesn't matter. I still have a role to play.
~ Kurogiri's introduction to Class 1-A and Thirteen.
I must protect Tomura Shigaraki!
~ Kurogiri's last words before Katsuki Bakugo destroyed him.

Kurogiri is a major antagonist in the My Hero Academia franchise. He is the League of Villains' second-in-command, and one of Tomura Shigaraki's most faithful servants and guardian. Like the rest of the League, he desires to kill All Might and help create a new world in Tomura's image.

It is later revealed that Kurogiri is actually the long-lost friend of Shota Aizawa and Hizashi Yamada, Oboro Shirakumo, who was believed to have been killed in an accident during their internship. It is revealed that his corpse was taken away before its cremation and mutated into that of a unique High-End Nomu by the acts of All For One and Daruma Ujiko, programmed to be Tomura's protector.

He is voiced by Takahiro Fujiwara in Japanese and Chuck Huber in English.


Despite appearing to be composed of nothing but pure fog, Kurogiri has a physical body. Nonetheless, he appears as a dark, ghastly-looking man with yellow eyes. He normally wears a suit with a tie and a metal collar around his entire neck as a civilian. Underneath the mist, is that of the body of Oboro Shirakumo.

For his villain costume, he wears absolutely nothing, and his neck collar normally remains hidden within his foggy body. He also sometimes appears larger than he normally is.


Unlike the rest of his fellow villains, Kurogiri is a calm and collected person. When he first encounters Thirteen and his students, he introduces himself and greets them in a respectful manner, exchanging names to them and such. Nonetheless, he is quite sinister, as he has no problem with harming the heroes in any way, let alone killing them.

He also seems act as a mentor of Tomura Shigaraki's in a way, despite his position. After Nomu's defeat, Kurogiri tried to keep Shigaraki calm about the situation. When Dabi and Toga attempted to join the league, Kurogiri advised Shigaraki that he should be rationalized and allow them introduce themselves.

Ever since his imprisonment in Tartarus, Kurogiri has been behaving rather oddly. Recently, Gran Torino and Naomasa Tsukauchi have been noting his behavior, in which they have commented how he behaves very identical to a Nomu. Kurogiri will tend to ramble on about various topics, but the moment the League of Villains are brought up as a topic, he immediately keeps quiet, as if his mind is being manipulated. Despite this, he continues to wonder how Tomura is, feeling that it's important for him to look after him, showing his immense loyalty to him. It appears, however, that he might still possess a very small amount of Oboro's memories because Shota was able to get through him long enough for Oboro to take control.

As Oboro Shirakumo, he was a young man noted for his jovial and cheerful demeanour, coupled with an energetic and goofy sense of humor. Aside from this, he was also brave, altruistic and selfless, as shown when he used his Quirk to save children from falling debris. He also encouraged his friend Shota Aizawa to keep trying his best and to keep smiling, even when faced with failure.

Powers and Abilities[]


Warp Gate: Kurogiri's Quirk is a fusion of several different ones, with Cloud acting as the base Quirk. It allows him to create and manipulate a dark fog that acts as a portal that can transport anything it comes in contact with to another location. Kurogiri can also use these portals in combat, as seen when he tricked Thirteen into using her own Quirk against herself by opening a portal to transport the attack behind her. He also intended to kill All Might by closing the portal while he's midway through it, causing his upper torso to rip off.

However, because his Quirk is coordinate-based, Kurogiri needs to know the exact location of wherever he wishes to open up a portal. He must also be physically present at all times to create the dark fog to begin with, giving his opponents the chance to immobilize or incapacitate him.

Former Powers and Abilities[]

  • Cloud: Cloud is a Quirk that allowed Oboro to create clouds and is capable of using them to accomplish various tasks and feats, such as allowing him to ride on them and fly through the air, and can even store objects inside them. Daruma Ujiko either reconstructed or combined this Quirk with various others to create Warp Gate
