Genji (ゲンジ, Genji)[1], also known by his hero alias Lightning Genji (雷光ゲンジ, Raikō Genji), is an A-Class Rank 17 professional hero from D-City for the Hero Association.


He appears as a youthful man with black hair and clear eyes. A notable part of his appearance is his remarkable outfit. He wears a very protective armor-like suit, with some tubes going in and out, marked with a sign resembling the radioactive logo. He also has a cap, with goggles and a mouth mask resembling that of an aviator's.


Lightning Genji joined the Hero Association a year ago and eventually reached A-Class.[1]

As the higher-ups of the Hero Association discuss the status on the cities, Lightning Genji was mentioned as a superhero in charge of D-City. His report on the city was that there is still reconstruction due to the incident caused by Marugori.[2]

Appearances in Other MediaEdit


Lost CatEdit

Lightning Genji, Stinger, Genos, Peach Terry, and Heavy Kong were assigned to secretly take care of Grizzly Nyah. Lightning Genji and Stinger were able to take care of one of the children, but had to ultimately run away from the mother. Lightning Genji stunned the Grizzly Nyah, while Stinger sliced its arm off.[4]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Being an A-Class hero charged with protecting D-City, it can be assumed that Lightning Genji is a rather powerful individual. Together he and Stinger managed to heavily injure a child Grizzly Nyah, a Disaster Level Demon monster.

Lightning Genji was able to effectively use his rods to fight a child Grizzly Nyah. He is also skilled at wielding them like normal sticks in combat, holding his own against two Tiger Level monsters at the same time.

  • Max Voltage (電圧MAX, Den'atsu MAX): Lightning Genji hits his opponent with his stun rods with maximum voltage output. He can only use this technique a limited number of times.[1] This is first used against a child Grizzly Nyah.[5]

Roller Skates: He uses a pair of roller skates during battles. His roller skates are linked with his battery.[1]
