Tanktop Tiger is a large, muscular man who has tiger stripes running through his hair and eyebrows. He wears a tiger-striped tank top.
Tanktop Tiger is especially loud and obnoxious. Tiger is overconfident in his own power and looks down upon new heroes, making him quite arrogant and hostile. He also comes off as a petty, jealous, cowardly, small in persona and in mind jerk who bemoans others whom he believes to be undeserving of a higher hero ranking than he is.
Such was the case with Both Saitama; whom he initially held a condescending view of before zooming past him in the place chart. As well as Licenseless Rider as he interfered with his master and Garou's fight. Tiger is also shown to be a bit of a scheming toady who went along with his reviled associate Blackhole's scheme to demoralize and rookie hunt the former.
Hero Association SagaEdit
Rumored Monster ArcEdit
When Saitama rushes around town searching for criminals, he was noticed by the civilians and deemed suspicious. They called Tanktop Tiger to do something about it and he soon appears while Speed-o'-Sound Sonic is trying to have a rematch against Saitama. Tanktop Tiger yells out at Saitama, but Saitama thinks that Tanktop Tiger believes that Speed-o'-Sound Sonic is the criminal. Tanktop Tiger then grabs Saitama by the head and tells him that he's the suspicious looking character that he's looking for.
After asking Saitama about his name, he says that he doesn't know a hero by that name. He threatens Saitama to go home and says that he wouldn't dare go up against a C-Class Rank 6 hero like him. Saitama gets angry and Tanktop Tiger taunts him into fighting him, expecting that it'll be good for his own image. However, he is cut off by several exploding shuriken thrown at him from Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, rendering him unconscious.
Giant Meteor ArcEdit
After Saitama destroys the Giant Meteor, he is taking a walk through the damaged Z-City when Tanktop Tiger shows up, accusing Saitama of lying and cheating. He then calls his big brother, Tanktop Black Hole, who comes and uses a loud voice to gather the citizens by calling out Saitama. When enough citizens gather he publicly declares Saitama a liar and a cheat. Once the citizens are on his side, he challenges Saitama to a fight. Tanktop Tiger jumps in first, but is punched by Saitama and goes flying off into a pile of rubble. Sometime after the event, he received a demotion to Rank 13.
Human Monster SagaEdit
Hero Hunt ArcEdit
Tanktop Tiger along with the Tank Topper Army found Garou to avenge Tanktop Vegetarian's defeat. After Tanktop Master engaged in a fight with Garou and lost, he then assisted his brothers and Mumen Rider in a fight against Garou, but were easily defeated by him.
Appearances in Other MediaEdit
Tanktop Tiger and Tanktop Black Hole were guarding a restricted area cordoned off by the Hero Association. He wonders why they're doing such a task when they're supposed to be heroes. He gets startled as Saitama shows up with a little girl, and both Tanktoppers demand to know what he's doing there, as only designated heroes selected by the officer in charge are allowed into the isolated zone that they're guarding. To his surprise, the latter nonchalantly states that he's one of those. Despite the circumstance, he and Black Hole allow him to go in knowing the full consequence if they try to stop him.
Abilities and PowersEdit
As someone who once reached a top 10 ranking in C-Class, and seemingly appearing to be a skilled combatant with a muscular frame, Tanktop Tiger is fairly strong compared to the average C-Class hero.
Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Like the rest of the Tank Topper Army, Tanktop Tiger seemingly prefers unarmed close quarters combat. He is said to be a decently strong hero with a "tiger-like" fighting style.
