Hood (フード Fūdo), also known simply as High-End (ハイエンド Hai Endo), was one of the twelve intelligent High-End Nomus of Dr. Kyudai Garaki and the primary antagonist of the Pro Hero Arc.
Hood was the first of the High-End breed of the Nomu creatures and an extraordinarily powerful being, who was able to outclass top Pro-Heroes and cause mass destruction, all on his own.
Before becoming a Nomu, Hood was once a street punk who earned his living as an underground fighter.
Powers and Stats
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Acrobatics, Martial Arts (Type 4) (Fought Endeavor and Hawks, on his own. His fighting skills impressed All For One when he first met him as a human being, and as an underground fighter), Body Control (Hood's first quirk called "Muscle Augmentation" allowed him to increase the muscle fibers in his body, allowing him to increase the power and speed of his movements. Hood's Fourth Quirk called "Transforming Arms" allowed him to shapeshift his arms, giving him the ability to use powerful elastic attacks), Pseudo-Flight (Hood's third quirk called "Shoulder-Mounted Jets" had given him jets on the back of his shoulders, which allowed him to propel himself through the air and fly), Regeneration (High-Mid) (Due to the fact that he possessed the "Super Regeneration" quirk), Statistics Amplification (Hood's fifth quirk called "Power" allowed his body to contain and unleash enormous physical power. He used this quirk to enhance the strength of his attacks), Limited Reactive Evolution & Accelerated Development (Quirk users have been shown to evolve or increase the strength of their quirk when in a life or death situation)
Attack Potency: Mountain level+ (High-Ends are stronger than Upper-Tier Nomus, such as U.S.J. Nomu. He managed, on his own, to simultaneously outclass both Endeavor and Hawks, and to cause mass destruction during their fight at the same time, as well)
Lifting Strength: At least Class M (He should be at least comparable to the rest of the High-End Nomus), likely higher
