Tanktop Vegetarian (タンクトップベジタリアン, Tankutoppu Bejitarian) is the A-Class Rank 9 professional hero of the Hero Association. He is second in command of the Tank Topper Army.


Much like the other heroes with the Tanktop motif, Tanktop Vegetarian is a muscular man with a red tank top with green leaf prints and short red hair.


Not much is known about Tanktop Vegetarian's personality other that, as his name implies, he has a proclivity for eating vegetables and forbids himself from eating meat. His hero spirit was broken after he was defeated by Garou.

Appearances in Other MediaEdit


Big ConstructionEdit

After the Dark Matter Thieves invasion and the Tank Toppers were alerted about the arrival of a large machine descending upon the Headquarters. Tanktop Vegeterian and the other Tank Toppers arrive to stop the drones sent out by the machine, but are largely unable to prevent its intervention. Only after realizing that the machine was controlled by Metal Knight to reconstruct A-City into the Hero Association Fortress did he and the other Tank Toppers step down.[4]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As a high ranking A-Class hero, Tanktop Vegetarian is a very skilled and powerful fighter. Given his rank, he was likely the most powerful member of the Tanktop army after Tanktop Master himself. Despite this, Garou still easily defeated him with only a single punch.

Physical AbilitiesEdit

Enhanced Strength: Tanktop Vegetarian possesses great physical ability. This comes from the combination of his tanktop and vegetables' nutritional values.[5]

Fighting StyleEdit

Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Like the rest of the Tank Topper Army, Tanktop Vegetarian seemingly prefers unarmed close quarters combat.

  • The origin of his hero name comes from his belief in a healthy vegetable based diet and total abstinence from all meat and fish dishes.[1]
