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