Kosei!

Fixer Upper

Akira Mokona Friday February 1, 2019

Character: Snipe

Quirk: Fixer Upper! You can fix things with just a touch, but you have to have fixed it before! The type of malfunction/break doesn’t need to be the same!

Hero Name: N/A

The owner of an aging cinema. The noir films usually shown have drawn a rough crowd.


I wasn't even going to write for Snipe, initially. He's barely mentioned in the series and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to do him justice. His match against Mezo and Toru aired shortly after I cut him out of the list, so I figured I had enough to go on.

Not much of an angle went into this one. I wanted to play off of the cowboy vs noir tropes more than anything else.

  • Kenichi, the mob boss, had a small and short-term role in the three chapters. If I write a full series for Snipe, he'll get a lot more 'screen' time. He won't be apprehended right away and will create some tension with Snipe. It'll make for more protective Snipe moments, which always please me.
  • Old movie nights are an absolute must for this couple. They either take turns with their favourite genre or they watch one western and one noir film each movie night.
  • The costumes related to both genres are their weaknesses. If Snipe ever dresses up as a slick private eye, he's getting the good stuff. Same goes for Rea-tan if she wears western themed clothes.
  • Since Snipe does Hero work and teaches at U.A., he does fall asleep during movie night sometimes. Rea-tan knows better than to take offence. He immediately apologizes when he wakes up. Sometimes it's the day after, if he doesn't have work right away. Rea-tan wants him to get as much sleep as he can.
  • If Rea-tan ever flirts with Snipe in a forward/seductive way, he's a mess. His poor cowboy heart can't take it. Snipe, on the other hand, is incredibly genuine. Acts of kindness and showing that he was thinking of her are common.
  • No matter where they are, if they meet gazes across the room, Snipe will reach up and touch the brim of his hat in a silent greeting. It's also a sign that he's looking out for her.
