Eijiro Kirishima, also known as Red Riot, 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, but after a freak incident, he met up with other heroes from alternate universes and helped to for the Crystal Knights.
Eijiro is a boisterous and outgoing guy with a fondness for the concept of manliness, often using the terms "manly" and "unmanly" to describe things and people he does or doesn't like. Those who showcase a noble, brave, and/or determined attitude tend to emotionally move him to tears, quickly earning his complete admiration, respect, and friendship. Similarly, he will call out traits that are the opposite of that, such as cowardice and dirty play. Eijiro himself is determined and selfless, bravely putting the safety of others before himself.
He's very honest and kind-hearted, having a straightforward way of thinking and following a specific code of chivalry that motivates him to live without regret. Thanks to his respectful and encouraging attitude, he's easily capable of making friends with most people he encounters, particularly those that show as much passion and resolve as he does. Loyal and dedicated to his friends, he's willing to go as far as to break laws and rules in order to help or save them, becoming regretful if he becomes unable to come for their aid. Eijiro has a strong sense of responsibility, sometimes being very hard on himself for any negative outcomes that befall him or his friends. As such, he's always thinking on how to further improve his own abilities and strengths, so as to not feel weak or burdensome to others.
Season 1 Edit
Season 2 Edit
Season 3 Edit
Eijiro's Quirk gives him the power to harden and sharpen any or all parts of his body, causing his flesh to become jagged and rock-like. There is a limit to how much damage it can take though, which causes the hardening itself to slowly dissipate, and Eijiro to lose stamina from struggling to keep his Quirk active.
Super Moves Edit
- Red Counter
While hardened, Eijiro endures a close-range attack with his skin and then counters with a straight punch.
- Red Riot Unbreakable
Eijiro reaches his maximum hardening level by turning his entire body extremely hard and rugged, leaving him with a monstrous appearance and practically invulnerable to most forms of attack. This form can only be maintained for around 30 to 40 seconds.
- Red Gauntlet
Eijiro rushes towards the enemy and delivers a single strong punch to the gut against them. If used during Red Riot Unbreakable, it deals massive damage.
While Eijiro gets along well with all of Class 2-K, he took a special interest in Lorelai when she joined the class, comparing how directionless the young robot felt after losing her father to how directionless and useless he felt he was when he was younger.
