Hammerhead (ハンマーヘッド Hamaheddo) is a B-Class criminal and the leader of the Paradise Group, a terrorist group insisting that people shouldn't have to work if they don't want to.
As head of the Paradise Group, Hammerhead strives to create a utopia in which work is voluntary, and the unemployed receive full financial support (stemming from his own laziness). Despite his leadership role, he lacks the charisma to rally any support for their misguided cause, and resorts to terrorism to garner attention.
The power of Hammerhead's battle suit makes him arrogant and delusional, claiming to fight for a noble purpose. Deprived of it, however, he is an utter coward, fleeing from Saitama and begging forgiveness.
Hammerhead has a history of street brawling, having once put twenty people into the hospital. Despite his boorish appearance, he employs some amount of strategy in combat, using his environment to set up crude choke points for his opponent.
