— Spring Mustachio

Spring Mustachio (バネヒゲ, Banehige) is the A-Class Rank 28 professional hero of the Hero Association.


Spring Mustachio is a lean-built man with short black hair combed to the left side with curled sideburns, yellow eyes with several wrinkles on the bottom of his face and a thick handlebar mustache. He wears a dark green suit and pants with a white collared shirt and red bow tie.


Spring Mustachio is an intelligent, serious man who doesn't back down, as shown by his persistence in fighting Kombu Infinity, even after being beaten up rather badly. He also shares a bond with fellow A-Class hero Golden Ball, as they regularly pair up to hunt monsters and share drinks in their spare time.

Spring Mustachio is content to stay in the lower ranks of the A-Class.


At some point in the past he trained under Nichirin and became one of his top disciples from his Conglomerate school.[2] He comes from a very rich family and instead of taking on his parents' job as a company manager, he chose to become a hero[1] and a dishwasher outside of his hero job.[3]

After seeing the monster dodge his Tomboy attack, Spring Mustachio disengages and questions the monster while requesting backup.[5] Despite putting up a good fight, Spring Mustachio loses[6] and is taken to the hospital.[7] Some time after the event, he received a promotion to rank 28.[1]

Garou says that he already knew about Spring Mustachio's secret technique, and that the fight helped him adapt to armed combatants.[8]

Spring Mustachio attacks Black Sperm with Tomboy Barrage

  • Tomboy (踏無トムボウ, Tomubōi): One of his secret[13] attacks of fencing is the thrust, which begins with his foil coiling in on its self like a spring and then thrusting it forward while shouting "Et La" (or possibly Étoilé, which in french literally means star). The resulting thrust extends far past the reach of his foil and has been shown to be able to punch through a telephone pole quite a way away.
  • Tomboy Barrage (踏無暴雨威トムボウイ, Tomubōi): One of his secret attacks of fencing is a series of thrusts, which begins with his foil coiling in on its self like a spring and then thrusting it forward. The penetrating power of his technique is described to be too great, so he can't attack horizontally in populated areas.[14]
