My Hero Academia Kurogiri “Black Fog” Funko POP
From My Hero Academia, Kurogiri “Black Fog”, as a stylized POP vinyl from Funko! Kurogiri is a major antagonist of the manga/anime series My Hero Academia. He is the League of Villains‘ second-in-command, and one of Tomura Shigaraki‘s most faithful servants. Like the rest of the League, he desires to kill All Might and help to create a new world in Tomura‘s image. It is later revealed that Kurogiri is actually the long-lost friend of Shota Aizawa and Hizashi Yamada, Oboro Shirakumo, who was believed to have been killed in an accident during their internship. It is revealed that his corpse was taken away before its cremation and mutated into that of a unique Nomu by the acts of All For One and Daruma Ujiko. As his name implies, Kurogiri’s entire body is made out of a dark purple mist, save for his eyes, which are glowing yellow. He normally wears a very elegant suit with a tie and has a metal brace that goes from around his collarbone to just below his eyes.
In his villain costume, he covers himself in his dark fog with only the metal brace around his neck being visible. Unlike the rest of his fellow villains, Kurogiri is a calm and collected person. When he first encounters Thirteen and his students, he introduces himself and greets them in a respectful manner, exchanging names to them and such. Nonetheless, he is quite sinister, as he has no problem with harming the heroes in any way, let alone killing them. He also seems act as a mentor of Tomura Shigaraki’s in a way, despite his position. After Nomu’s defeat, Kurogiri tried to keep Shigaraki calm about the situation. When Dabi and Toga attempted to join the league, Kurogiri advised Shigaraki that he should be rationalized and allow them introduce themselves, instead of creating conflict. Ever since his imprisonment in Tartarus, Kurogiri has been behaving rather oddly. Recently, Gran Torino and Naomasa Tsukauchi have been noting his behavior, in which they have commented how he behaves very identical to a Nomu.
Kurogiri will tend to ramble on about various topics, but the moment the League of Villains are brought up as a topic, he immediately keeps quiet, as if his mind is being manipulated. Despite this, he continues to wonder how Tomura is, feeling that it’s important for him to look after him, showing his immense loyalty to him. It appears, however, that he might still possess a very small amount of Oboro’s memories because Shota was able to get through him long enough for Oboro to take control. As Oboro Shirakumo, he was a young man noted for his jovial and cheerful demeanour, coupled with an energetic and goofy sense of humor. Aside from this, he was also brave, altruistic and selfless, as shown when he used his Quirk to save children from falling debris. He also encouraged his friend Shota Aizawa to keep trying his best and to keep smiling, even when faced with failure.
