Knuckleduster Profile
Striking down evildoers is refreshing!
~ Knuckleduster's delight after a job well done


Knuckleduster is a vigilante from the My Hero Academia spinoff, Vigilantes: My Hero Academia Illegals. He is a successful, if destructive vigilante, but is working outside of the law and thus technically a criminal. He nevertheless believes in fighting villains for the greater good, pressing on despite being Quirkless.

Intelligence: Knuckleduster is a skilled brawler whose tenacity and fighting skill allow him to go toe-to-toe with Quirk users despite being completely and utterly Quirkless. His hand-to-hand combat ability was complimented by the likes of Eraserhead, a specialist in hand-to-hand combat and initially mistook Knuckleduster's toughness for a stamina-enhancing Quirk. However, his combat skill does not always translate into wisdom, as he tried to simply get people to stick their tongues at him while investigating the use of a Quirk-enhancing drug despite the pleas of others. In addition, he is very reckless and always takes the direct approach, engaging Eraserhead and causing a disturbance despite the fact that there were more pressing matters to deal with. He usually charges in head first, using surprise and brute strength to quickly take down villains, which leads into his weakness.

Weaknesses: Knuckleduster rarely thinks ahead and generally relies on straightforward tactics. He is reckless and stubborn, and thus charges straight ahead rather than strategizing around his opponent's abilities.
