Glasses (メガネ, Megane) is the B-Class Rank 20 professional hero of the Hero Association. He is one of the few people aware of Saitama's strength.

Appearance[]

Glasses is an average-looking young man with black hair and a pair of black-frame glasses. Before his departure from the Blizzard Group, his outfit consisted of a standard black business suit and a white shirt. As an independent hero, he wears a green tracksuit with two white stripes running down his sleeves and pant legs.

He also has multiple scars on his left arm.[1]

Personality[]

Originally wanting to become a hero, Glasses trained hard in order to become one. He, however, began losing self-confidence after becoming part of the Blizzard Group, believing that he and any other average person have limits and cannot keep up with people who have natural-born talent.

After he was saved by Saitama and heard his opinion, Glasses realized that the only one that had put limits on him was himself, with his thinking of not being good enough to be a hero. After becoming much stronger, he reiterates this idea to Eyelashes.[1]

Since meeting Saitama, Glasses has begun training again, and has become far more level-headed and confident, remaining calm against Garou and even standing and fighting against him despite the danger that the martial artist posed. Even after being rendered unable to move and half-conscious, he possessed the will to report his location and summon Genos.

History[]

Glasses during his time as an office worker

Originally an office worker who had to cut down on food costs to survive, Glasses started his hero career to improve his lifestyle. He was able to climb to the B-Class. In order to retain his position, he joined the Blizzard Group.


Plot[]

Human Monster Saga[]

Monster Association Arc[]

Glasses is seen with Stinger, Wild Horn, Chain'n'toad, Smile Man, Gun Gun and Shooter as a part of the team led by Death Gatling to ambush the injured Garou.[2]

Glasses fights Garou

During the battle, he supports the group by resupplying Shooter's arrows but avoids attacking Garou directly. When Garou tries to target him anyway, Glasses throws rocks in his face as a distraction and follows up with a punch to the face.

He then retreats to a far distance and leaves Garou open to the other heroes. However, Garou grows stronger and overpowers most of the other heroes. Garou targets Glasses a second time, closing the distance and chasing him down (so that Death Gatling cannot open fire), and simultaneously taunting Glasses for his strength. Glasses attempts to throw rocks at Garou again, but Garou catches them all and throws them at Shooter. Stinger briefly intercepts Garou but is quickly defeated. Glasses is incapacitated shortly thereafter, despite valiantly trying to throw a punch at Garou, when Garou knocks him out by elbow striking him toward a tree. Fortunately, he manages to send an emergency signal to Genos, who promptly arrives.

Appearances in Other Media[]

Omakes[]

A New Wind Blows[]

Glasses and twenty other members of the Blizzard Group corner and take down the C-Class criminal, Banero. However, Glasses did not actively participate in the fight because he was deep in thought and therefore gets no credit. When the Blizzard Group faces the Demonic Fan, Glasses witnesses how powerless he is.

After witnessing Saitama's strength

Suddenly, Tatsumaki enters the scene and, after berating Glasses for how useless he is, shatters the machine monster with one move before taking Fubuki away. Saitama soon arrives and is told by him that the fight is over. However, Demonic Fan's remnants reassemble itself and it comes back to life. As Saitama eagers to fight it, Glasses stops him, saying that a mere C-Class hero cannot possibly beat the monster. He goes on by claiming that normal humans have limits and that is what seperates them from ones with actual talent. In an instant, Saitama destroys the monster with a single punch, and motivates Glasses to keep moving forward, much to his shock. After Saitama leaves, Glasses realizes that the only one that had put limits on him was himself. He then leaves the Blizzard Group and continues his hero career with his own strength.[3]

Growth Process[]

Glasses stops a robbery at a grocery store, where he encounters his old comrade, Eyelashes. They chat and discuss each other's situation where Eyelashes praises Glasses on his improvement although Glasses denies that and he has much more to improve on. An explosion erupts in the distance and Glasses heads towards it. Eyelashes stops him as he doesn't believe he can stop the monster on his own. Glasses states his conviction to grow and leaves Eyelashes to call Fubuki. Eyelashes watches Glasses leave as he informs of a hero on the scene of the disaster.[4]

Abilities and Powers[]

Glasses is one of the higher-ranked B-Class heroes, and Garou noted that he is skilled in hand-to-hand combat. He was notably the only member of the Blizzard Group to avoid the Demonic Fan's second attack.

Glasses was a part of Death Gatling's hero squad tasked with Garou's capture. Death Gatling notes the heroes as elites and praises their capabilities and experiences to survive life‐or‐death crises.

Physical Abilities[]

Enhanced Durability: Glasses is shown to be quite resilient. He took a beating from a weakened Garou, withstanding long enough to attempt to for an attack again. Although it was noted by Stinger and Death Gatling that Garou was toying with him.[5]

Glasses dodging Garou's attack

Enhanced Speed and Reflexes: During his fight against Garou, Glasses was shown to have developed decent speed, reflexes, and hand-to-hand combat skills from his independent training. He was able to dodge Garou's attempt to grab and use him as a shield, and always kept a certain distance from the Hero Hunter so as not to let him flee.

Enhanced Strength: After weeks of physical training due to Saitama's advice, Glasses gained a considerable amount of physical strength to the point where he was able to somewhat hold his own against Garou, whose strength rivaled an S-Class hero, albeit the Hero Hunter was significantly weakened when fighting him.

Enhanced Stamina and Endurance: Glasses declared to Garou that he has confidence in his stamina and persistence to continue the fight to the end. Despite all his damage, he stayed conscious long enough to call for help. It should be noted that he was also the only member of the squad to stay conscious after the fight.

Tracking: Glasses is skilled at tracking targets as seen by how he was appointed to do so during the operation against Garou.

Advanced Growth Rate: As a result of his consistent training, Glasses' strength grew over time as he was able to move up a rank in a short amount of time. Glasses' growth rate allows him to easily keep up with high-ranked heroes, as shown during the fight with Garou. Eyelashes noted his improvement after his training, when he managed to catch a kick to the head from him.[1]

Fighting Style[]

Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Glasses is proficient in fighting, knowing how to hold fighting stances and throwing punches although he prefers to wear out his opponent's stamina. He also has ranged attacks in which he throws several rocks at the opponent.

Equipment[]

Emergency Transmitter: Glasses carries an emergency transmitter to request help from other nearby heroes in an emergency.

Rocks: Glasses uses rocks to fight, utilizing them as projectile weapons against opponents.
