In My Hero Academia, Hood was an illegal fighter who lived as a human Villain before he became a High End. He was then subject to major surgeries and transplants. This transformed him into a High End, a sentient Nomu that can use many Quirks.

The Pro Hero
Hood is immediately activated and placed in for ten hour to stabilize himself. A mysterious man informs the High-End at the Hidamari Kindergarten that there are more demands of him. Hood tells his master that he will do the job given to him.

Hood flew to the restaurant where Endeavor had met Hawks and broke the window. Then he asked which one is stronger. Endeavor discovers that the rumors are true and is pleased that Nomu has arrived. Hood is ready to attack but is unable to make it in the time allowed by Endeavor, who knocks Hood out of the building with one punch. Hood’s right arm, which was still clinging on to a wall, tears away and Endeavor takes off to fight the creature.


Hood mocks Endeavor’s attempts to injure his hand. Hood shows Endeavor how his Super Regeneration is already rebuilding the right side of his hand and other burn injuries. Endeavor attempts to attack Hood, but Hood dodges him with a quick propulsion through the air. Hood grabs the Pro Hero and throws him into the restaurant. Mutant Arms allows him to stretch his arms. Hood continues his assault by waving both of his arms and collapsing top floors. Hawks appears to have saved the civilians injured and hit Hood with his feathers. Endeavor then strikes Hood with his feathers, fracturing him into many pieces. Hood says that the battle is becoming more interesting and shows no concern for his injuries.

Hood is not hurt by Endeavor’s attack, so Endeavor flew away. However, the attack manages to destroy most of the building. Hood is not bothered when Endeavor is aided by two heroes from the street below. The High-End displays his latest Quirk Storage, which allows him to release Nomu from his body on the street. Hood questions Endeavor about whether he will continue fighting or not. He decides to make his first move to test his opponent’s power. Endeavor unleashes a Prominence Burn that chars Hood’s head but not his body. Hood quickly regenerates and attacks Endeavor. He injures Endeavor in the eye, and causes him to fall to his death. Hood immediately wonders if there is another Hero.

A conscious Endeavor uses the flames of his flames to attack the High-End. Hood manages to avoid the blow and hurls Hood onto a building. Endeavor resists surrendering and protects himself from Nomu with his flames. Hood relates how Hawks used his feathers to increase Endeavor’s speed and throw him at Villain.

Endeavor, aided by Hawks feathers attacks High-End sending both of them into space. Hood’s regenerative powers allow him to heal his wounds, but at that point Hood loses control. Hawks boosts Endeavor’s speed to send Hood and Hawks out of town. Endeavor is able to defeat all obstacles. Endeavor triumphs over Hood’s burnt corpse and emerges victorious in the end, looking similar to All Might.


Dabi takes over and, revealing himself as the mysterious man who led Hood’s attack on Hood, attempts to attack Endeavor, Hawks and Nomu’s body using the Heroes’ fatigue. Mirko stops this, and Dabi is teleported away, unable to accomplish his objective. The High-End’s corpse is taken into custody by police.

Saga of the Liberation Army
The flashback shows the Dr. Garaki meeting with the Villain Union before Hood attacks. Dabi is shocked to see the High-Ends still in stasis in their pods. Dr. Garaki compliments Dabi and suggests that he examine one of the High Ends. Hood is the Nomu who will be defeated in Fukuoka by Endeavor.
