Plot[edit | edit source]

Human Monster Saga[edit | edit source]

Monster Association Arc[edit | edit source]

Tongara was appointed as the team leader of Narinki's Private Squad by Narinki to save his son from the Monster Association. Narinki states that if his squad retrieves his son, they will be paid very handsomely, so much so that even their grandchildren won't have to work.[2]

When he and his team arrived at the hideout, they managed to kill two Mysterious Beings, before being caught by G5 and brought before Orochi and Gyoro Gyoro. Tongara begins to pathetically beg for mercy and forgiveness, telling them they can do whatever they want with the hostage and that they're only in it for the money, also offering to give them everything they have on them. Tongara blames his predicament on G5 for intercepting them before they could escape. Tongara and the rest of the team are absolutely terrified, and Tongara has tears streaming down his face as the monsters contemplate what to do with them. Then, several monsters jump to kill them, but Royal Ripper murders them before they can reach the squad because he wants the pleasure all to himself. Royal Ripper walks up to Tongara and cuts his face twice, creating a large X. But then, G5 intervenes and says their battle suits are connected to their bodies. Royal Ripper still isn't convinced, but before he can torture them, Do-S stops his sword with her whip. She suggests to turn them into her love slaves, which Gyoro Gyoro agrees with. Tongara, along with the other mercenaries, are turned into love slaves.[3]

When the heroes invade the headquarters, Do-S tells Tongara and the others to prepare for battle and kill any heroes that they come across.

Do-S and the private squad come across three disciples and engage them in battle. Tongara is shown to engage Iaian with his rail gun and being evenly matched with him.

Eventually, Sweet Mask interrupts the battle and, after dismissing the disciples, intends on massacring the entire squad. However, the disciples quickly return and incapacitate Tongara and the other members of the squad, leaving Sweet Mask to deal with Do-S. When Do-S is taken down, the mind-controlling effect of her whip breaks, returning Tongara's humanity. Afterwards, Tongara offers the disciples to join his team, only for them to reject. He then falsely claims that he was just acting when he cowered to the monsters, prompting the rest of the squad to pretend they were acting too.

Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

As a member of Narinki's Private Squad equipped with new battle armor from The Organization, Tongara has impressive abilities. Together with the squad, he was able to pressure Atomic Samurai's disciples, who are S-Class material according to Fubuki.

Mercenary skills[edit | edit source]

When not using weapons, Tongara is very proficient in close-quarter combat and seems to use a variety of power-based attacks based on physical strength. His experience on the battlefield against enemy soldiers disguising themselves as civilians also developed his reflexes, allowing him to instantly counter attacks from behind. He can also create versatile strategies to deal with a variety of situations, but due to his lack of experience with monsters he was taken by surprise and his plan to rescue Waganma was ruined by Do-S and her brainwashing powers. As a professional mercenary, Tongara is also able to fake his emotions and trick others through acting, even though vicious monsters such as Royal Ripper are not easily affected by it. He was also able to replicate the behavior of a typical love slave of Do-S despite having experienced such a status only once.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Battle Suit: Tongara wears armor manufactured by The Organization[4] provided to him by Narinki. The armor is even more advanced than the previous battle suits and allows him to fight top-ranking A-Class heroes.

Machine Gun: Tongara carries a machine gun with him and was relatively proficient in wielding it.[5] The machine gun was destroyed by Iaian.

Hand Gun: Tongara carries an emergency hand gun in case of need.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Tongara's name is based on tōgarashi, Japanese for chili pepper.
