The Forest King (森林王, Shinrin-ō) is a Mysterious Being who rules over the Forest Tribe and wants to return the lost greenery to Earth at the cost of the humans inhabiting it.
The Forest King is a large and monstrous-looking tree creature, standing several stories high and has what appears to be another face in his abdomen and several thick branches covering his body that act as his limbs. His own face sports five pitch-black eyes and a mouth full of hole-like openings.
The Forest King sees humans as nothing more than mere fertilizer that his kind needs in order to carry on his scheme of returning the lost greenery to Earth.
Fall of the Hero Association ArcEdit
After four heroes of the Association fought and harmed his followers, the Forest King himself confronted the heroes and easily defeated and captured them. As he was about to sacrifice them as fertilizer to his kind another hero appeared and annihilated his entire army, who then proceeded to face the Forest King himself. He was killed by Genos after that.
Abilities and PowersEdit
The Forest King could singlehandedly defeat four professional heroes of the Hero Association with little to no effort, with the heroes being impotent against him.
Immense Strength: The Forest King could use his branches to easily crush with great force anything on his grasp.
Immense Durability: The Forest King could endure the attacks of an A-Class Hero without any scratch.
- The Forest King is the seventh of many kings mentioned in the series, the others being the Subterranean King, the Beast King, the Deep Sea King, the Ancient King (anime-only), the Sky King, and the Monster King.
