Glasses (メガネ, Megane) is a B-Class Rank 20 professional hero for the Hero Association.
Glasses is an average young man with black hair and a pair of glasses, which gives him his hero name. Before he left the Blizzard Group, he was seen wearing the typical black business suit with a white shirt. As an independent hero he wears a green tracksuit as his hero suit.
Originally wanting to become a hero, Glasses trained hard in order to become one. He, however, began losing self-confidence after becoming part of the Blizzard Group, believing that he and any other average person have limits and cannot keep up with people who have natural born talent.
After he was saved by Saitama and heard his opinion, Glasses realized that the only one that had put limits on him was himself, with his thinking of not being good enough to be a hero. He reiterates this idea to Eyelashes.
Originally an office worker who had to cut down on food costs to survive, Glasses started the hero career to improve his lifestyle; after he got strong enough, he was able to reach the B-Class and in order to maintain his position, he joined the Blizzard Group.
Human Monster SagaEdit
Monster Association ArcEdit
During the battle, he supports the group by resupplying Shooter's arrows, but avoids attacking Garou directly. When Garou tries to target him anyway, Glasses throws rocks in his face as a distraction and follows up with a punch to the face.
He then retreats to a far distance and leaves Garou open to the other heroes. However, Garou grows stronger and overpowers most of the other heroes. Garou targets Glasses a second time, closing the distance and chasing him down (so that Death Gatling cannot open fire), and simultaneously taunting Glasses for his strength. Glasses attempts to throw rocks at Garou again, but Garou catches them all and throws them at Shooter. Stinger briefly intercepts Garou, but is quickly defeated. Glasses is incapacitated shortly thereafter after when Garou knocks him out by elbow strikes him toward a tree, despite valiantly trying to throw a punch at Garou. Fortunately, he manages to send an emergency signal to Genos, who promptly arrives.
Appearances in Other MediaEdit
A New Wind BlowsEdit
He and other twenty members of the Blizzard Group cornered and took down the C-Class criminal, Banero. However, Glasses didn't actively participate in the fight because he was deep in thought and therefore got no credit. When the Blizzard Group faced the Demonic Fan, Glasses witnessed how powerless he was.
Suddenly, Tatsumaki entered the scene and, after pointing out how useless Glasses was, she shattered the monster with one move and took Fubuki away. However, the monster came back together, but luckily Saitama came and destroyed it with a single blow. Finally, Glasses understood that the only one that had put limits on him was himself. He then left the Blizzard Group and continued his hero career with his own strength.
