Denki Kaminari, also known as Chargebolt, is a character from My Hero Academia and is a regular reoccurring character in The Knights of the Multiverse. He's a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero. He and some of his classmates sometimes assist the Crystal Knights.
Denki is a friendly, social and energetic young lad who likes to hang out with people. He's rather casual when interacting with others, including the generally unfriendly Katsuki Bakugo, although he's also not above petty complaining or overreacting if feeling annoyed or shocked enough. Denki may come off as blunt and reckless at times, but does mean well.
Denki isn't very academically bright, requiring lots of help at studying due to his general disinterest/neglect for school duties. He doesn't seem to pay much attention in classes, gets easily bored from lectures and suffers anxiety attacks when dealing with tests, at which point he becomes increasingly agitated and aggressive. Frequently showing a lack of tact and smarts in and out of school, Denki may give off the impression of being stupid or foolish, leading others to throw snide remarks at him (especially Jiro) or underestimate his capabilities as a hero. Despite this, Denki is surprisingly knowledgeable in certain areas like literature, art and music, and has a large vocabulary that shows up every now and then.
During combat, he's very quick to panic and sometimes accidentally activates his Quirk in the face of imminent danger, leaving himself vulnerable in the process. He becomes more reluctant to use his full power when there are allies close to him, being afraid of hurting them through collateral damage from his volatile bolts. When he's assured that all his allies will be safe from his powers, he becomes much more confident in his fighting abilities. He never tolerates others looking down on him or his classmates, and will defend them if necessary.
Whenever he exceeds his wattage limit, he loses his ability to discharge energy, with his entire personality changing into that of a giggling idiot for a certain period until he reverts back to normal. In this state, he is always giving thumbs ups, as a way to let others know that he is fine.

Denki's Quirk allows him to generate electricity and cover his body in it. While he can also emit this energy over a distance, Denki has little to no control over it. Exceeding his wattage limit causes his brain to short-ciruit, leaving him in a vulnerable state for 1 hour.
- Indiscriminate Discharge 1,300,000 Volts
Denki releases a large amount of electricity to shock everyone around him. But, since 1,300,000 volts is his current limit, using this technique, his brain short-circuits for 1 hour.
