Hero Association SagaEdit

Rumored Monster ArcEdit

D-Pad converses with several other heroes about the rumored monster.[2] He then decided to head to Z-City to investigate the rumored monster of the city after it defeated Golden Ball and Spring Mustachio, but he came to the scene after it was already beaten by Saitama. He later helped carrying Golden Ball.[3][4]

Sea Monster ArcEdit

He along with other C-Class heroes meet Mumen Rider, who was heading towards J-City. He warned Mumen Rider that the monster threat is demon and that they cannot fight it.[5]

Appearances in Other MediaEdit


What Can't Be BoughtEdit

D-Pad and Funeral Suspenders first arrive shortly after Saitama has defeated yet another Mysterious Being, taking it upon themselves to cordon off the creature's corpse and inadvertently getting the credit for its defeat.

Later, they attempt to thwart a bank robbery being perpetrated by the A-Class criminal Bull-Bull. After successfully defeating several of his henchmen, both heroes are defeated simultaneously by Bull-Bull.

It is implied that D-pad and Funeral Suspenders frequently team-up and train together, having even developed special fighting moves only they can perform with the other's assistance. Sometime after the event, he received a promotion to rank 22.[6]

Pork Cutlet BowlEdit

D-Pad was one of the many heroes which tried to defeat the monster that was devastating a police station in order to get credits, since it was an important emergency. However, he arrives at the scene when Saitama has already killed the monster.[7]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As rather higher-ranked member of the C-Class, it can be presumed, that he is stronger than most other heroes of his class.
