Neo Heroes Saga[]

Psychic Sisters Arc[]

Butterfly DX, Chain'n'toad and Forte all go to greet Saitama as their new neighbour and superiors. After taking offense to Saitama's comment about his fighting style, Forte challenges Saitama to a duel.[2] However, before the fight starts, he is run over by the Blizzard Group's car.[3]

After witnessing Saitama's power during his fight with Tatsumaki, he nervously postpones the rematch and begins to respect Saitama for his immeasurable strength.[4]

He is later seen building the dog house for Rover and Black Sperm. After meeting Saitama and Genos, he is informed that Genos is taking his room and he has to move out by the end of the day.[5]

Appearances in Other Media[]


Pork Cutlet Bowl[]

Forte was among the many heroes summoned by McCoy to combat the monster that was devastating the Z-City police station. He arrives at the scene late, after Saitama has already killed the monster.[6]

Abilities and Powers[]

As an A-Class hero, Forte is a skilled and powerful fighter. His fighting style is based around the rhythm of his music.

However, his weakness is that he's not always aware of his surroundings due to playing music with his headphones on. His volume was loud enough to make car honks unnoticeable.


  • In music, forte is an adjective which means "played loudly", derived from Italian meaning strong/high.
