Child Emperor (童帝, Dōtei) is the S-Class Rank 5 professional hero for the Hero Association. So far, he is the youngest hero in the Hero Association. He has his own laboratory in Y-City.


Child Emperor is a young boy with short brown hair and large amber eyes. He wears a light blue buttoned up collared shirt with dark blue short and orange sneakers along with a black school bag on his back.


Despite his young age, Child Emperor is a genius, having a very analytical mind, observing the situation and formulating plans in a calm and collected manner. Child Emperor strongly believes in education, when he was summoned to an S-Class meeting he still mentions his cram school. Despite his genius, he doesn't like being called childish and gets easily annoyed when he does.

Child Emperor also has a caring side. He prioritizes creating an antidote for his fellow heroes who had been poisoned instead of defeating Eyesight. He also displayed concern for Pig God's well-being when he devoured the venomous monster.

After the defeat of Garou, he began to mistrust adults after being disappointed in his inability to stop Garou.

As he investigates the murder, he gathers evidence and information from the heroes and tries to eliminate one and another to find out the truth. He interrogates all, including Saitama and finally King, but was scared off by his King Engine. While the investigation wasn't progressing, Tatsumaki tried to restrain everyone, until Zombieman suddenly woke up. Zombieman later revealed that Atomic Samurai's katana was floating with green light surrounding it similar to Tatsumaki, when it stabbed him. Child Emperor questions Tatsumaki, but she angrily denies it. Zombieman didn't care what happened the night prior and the heroes disbanded and the case was dropped.
