Personality Edit

Not much is known about his personality, except that he's the first friendly monster to appear, not attacking Garou despite his rude attitude against him. When Rhino Wrestler asked what he thought of his disaster level, he remarked that he didn't care. He also seems to be confident in his abilities.

He also seems to have a good sense of judgment and keen intellect. As he was seen taking charge of the situation of their mission and instructing Rhino Wrestler, Sludge Jellyfish, and Elder Centipede. He was also able to figure out Metal Knight's robot was remote controlled and fighting it would only exhaust both him and his teammates.

Monster Raid ArcEdit

Phoenix Man is first seen in S-City accompanied by Sludge Jellyfish and Rhino Wrestler. The three monsters corner Mohican and Pineapple, who are carrying Narinki and his son Waganma.[1] He's seen watching the battle between Garou and Metal Bat, commenting Garou could be an useful asset.[2]

He later tries to invite Garou to join the Monster Association, but it's turned down. He says he'll overlook Garou's rude behavior this time and promises that they will meet again if Garou continues to hero hunt.[3]

After successfully capturing the child, Phoenix Man told Rhino Wrestler to retreat after explaining how fighting Metal Knight would only be in vain for both of them. Phoenix Man instructed a retreat to Elder Centipede, and him along with Rhino Wrestler were taken by the large Monster and burrowed underground.[4]

Phoenix Man took Waganma to the Monster Association headquarters and was commended by Gyoro Gyoro. He informed Gyoro Gyoro about monsters being cornered by heroes and asked if they should send reinforcement, but his request was declined.[5]
