Red Nose (赤鼻, Akahana; Viz: Rednose) is the C-Class Rank 385 professional hero of the Hero Association.


Like his name suggests, Red Nose has a red nose. He also sports curly red hair, dull eyes, and an nonathletic build. He has apathetic eyes and constantly diagonal eyebrows. Red Nose is one of the shortest heroes, standing below most people whenever he is shown. He's also very portly, or fat. 


Red Nose is a rather selfish and attention seeking individual, as seen when he kept looking at the camera and posing while trying to convince a man to refrain from committing suicide.[2] He is also pretty cowardly given how he'd run from a monster at first sight and yet is highly overconfident, seeing Garou's rising infamy after defeating Tanktop Master as an opportunity for promotion and underestimating the Hero hunter due to the latter being a human.


Human Monster SagaEdit

Hero Hunt ArcEdit

Red Nose begins to belittle the heroes that had been defeated by the Garou but get negative responses from Hyottoko and Studless. He goes on to attempt to show off his own martial arts skills only to have Garou himself appear behind him.[3] He and the heroes were later found beaten on the street.[4]

Appearances in Other MediaEdit



Red Nose is trying to convince a suicidal man not to jump from a building, but in reality he is just trying to look good on camera.[2]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Like most C-Class heroes, Red Nose seems to prefer to combine strength against emergencies, rather then fight them alone, as he was seen most of the time with other C-Class heroes.

Given his rank in C-Class and how easily he was beaten by Garou, it can be assumed that Red Nose is a rather weak hero, even by C-Class standards.

Fighting StyleEdit

Novice martial artist: When he spoke with Hyottoko and Studless about Garou, he claimed to know a bit about martial arts. Although he is clearly nowhere near Garou's level, who easily knocked him out.


Red Nose wears an armor with noses and letters "R", made by his mother, which extends through the arms to reach his gloves.
