Maiko Plasma (舞妓プラズマ, Maiko Purazuma) was one of the two Monster Association monsters assigned to attack D-City.

AppearanceEdit

Maiko Plasma's appearance is that of a Maiko with her black hair tied up in a traditional Japanese way with many decorative hair clips with stars, clouds and thunderbolts. As a Maiko, she wears a long kimono called a hikizuri, with clouds and thunderbolts printed on it, a black obi sash with two belts tied over it and wedge-heeled wooden sandals. Around her, she has eight Tomoe drums attached to her back and carries two drum sticks in her hand.

PersonalityEdit

Maiko Plasma seems rather calm and acknowledges that there are more powerful beings than her in the world, a trait very few low level threat level monsters have.[1]

PlotEdit

Human Monster SagaEdit

Monster Raid ArcEdit

She and Electric Catfish Man go to attack the recently rebuilt D-City. At the city, they encounter Lightning Genji. Unfortunately for Lightning Genji, their attributes nullify his stun attacks.[2] The monster pair eventually defeat Lightning Genji.[3]

Monster Association ArcEdit

In the Monster Association, she and Electric Catfish Man are discussing their victory over Lightning Genji and remarking that it was thanks to Gyoro Gyoro and her carefully-planned choice of who they would fight that the pair won against the A-class hero.

Later, Maiko Plasma, alongside other Tiger level monsters including Electric Catfish Man, are attacking Puri-Puri Prisoner. When their attacks have no effect, they attempt to flee only to run into Vacuuma. Vacuuma tells them not to retreat, to which the monsters angrily ask him to fight the S-class hero in their place. Vacuuma agrees and subsequently consumes them all to gain their powers, signifying the death of Maiko Plasma.
