Great Philosopher (大哲人, Dai Tetsujin) is the A-Class Rank 13 professional hero of the Hero Association.

AppearanceEdit

Great Philosopher has a look that is highly reminiscent of the stereotypical look of an ancient Greek scholar. He has black bands covering his hands and a large white beard accompanied by flowing white hair. He typically carries around a large book. He has a large vein coming down his bicep and has an athletic build.

PersonalityEdit

True to his name, he appears to be a very stern and analytical individual. Unlike many other heroes and people in general, Great Philosopher actually tries to understand monsters and asks them about their feelings and intentions. However, they never give him an actual response, and as a result, he always kills them with his book.

Appearances in Other MediaEdit

OmakesEdit

Pork Cutlet BowlEdit

Great Philosopher 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.[1]

NumbersEdit

He and other heroes tried to stop Jumping Spider together but were easily blown away by the creature because of a misunderstanding of the monster's real capability.[2]
