Zombieman (ゾンビマン, Zonbiman) is the S-Class Rank 8 professional hero for the Hero Association.


Zombieman has short, scruffy black hair, red eyes, and pale skin. He wears a worn out, open gray trench coat over his black singlet, with tan stitched pants and a thick brown belt. He has belts wrapped around his body under his coat and wears tanker boots.[3] He sometimes smokes a cigarette. Zombieman has a Y shaped scar on his chest that he can't heal.[4]


Zombieman appears to be bothered by the peculiarities of the Hero Association meeting, noting that the heroes do not look very cooperative and hiding his annoyance at Pig God's continued consumption. He is unusually sensitive to the death of a human. Zombieman is stated to be nihilistic, possibly due to the fact that he has "died" several times, therefore he is always calm. This is rather ironic, since he is a nihilistic individual, yet he is very sensitive to the deaths of people. In addition, he prefers to work as a lone wolf and dislikes gathering, although he still respects common courtesy. It is possible that his bleak view of the world and his nihilistic behavior comes from all the years of experimentation in the house of evolution and his immortality. Moreover, he rarely talks about his past.[2] Despite his bleak view of the world, he is a fairly forgiving individual who does not hold onto a grudge when there isn't a point in pursuing it.

Due to his immortality and his regeneration, he is a smoker, since it calms him and it has no side-effects.

He is also shown to be a rather smart individual, with detective-like thinking, and knows when he cannot win a fight, such as when he fought against Homeless Emperor.

After witnessing Saitama defeat Garou, it is revealed that he wants to become stronger, and begs Dr. Genus to help break his limiter and become as strong as Saitama, hinting at a possible inferiority complex which stems from his over-reliance on his regenerative abilities and his rather weak physical abilities in comparison to other S-class heroes.

Abilities and Powers

Being a S-Class hero, it can be assumed that Zombieman is very powerful. It is stated that the flowers of blood and slaughter blossom wherever he goes. However, in terms of destructive power and physical capabilities, he is rumored to be one of the weakest S-Class heroes.

Physical Abilities

Regeneration: Described as "a man that even in death cannot die", Zombieman possesses one of the best regeneration capabilities in the series. He is able to regenerate any part of his body no matter how severe the injury is. He can keep on moving even without his head or innards.[2] He needs 3 minutes to recover from 200 fatal injuries and 15 minutes to recover a cut off arm completely.[5] However, Zombieman is also not truly immortal despite his regeneration, as he will die if he is reduced to mincemeat.[5] Virtual Genocide System's (VGS) simulations show that Zombieman is capable of withstanding an onslaught from Carnage Kabuto and regenerate from just a head.[6]

Immeasurable Endurance: Zombieman got famous from one fight against a monster that lasted 140 hours.[2] Virtual Genocide System's (VGS) simulations show that Zombieman is capable of withstanding an onslaught from Carnage Kabuto, which lasts a whole week.[7]

Zombieman defeated Pureblood despite suffering the pain of about 200 lethal wounds and recuperated in only 3 minutes. He was also able to move, speak and think normally after being hit by Homeless Emperor's explosions.

Immense Durability: Zombieman withstood Homeless Emperor's beams without completely vaporizing.

Enhanced Strength: Zombieman is capable of killing a demon with his own strength in a timely manner.

Enhanced Speed: Zombieman can match the speed of a Vampire that can catch bullets.

Fighting Styles

Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: When not relying on his long-ranged weapons, Zombieman engages in close quarters combat. Virtual Genocide System's (VGS) simulations show that Zombieman can find a way to kill Carnage Kabuto with a counter attack after the monster exhausted himself.[8]

He seems to possess a decent amount of skill during close quarters combat, as he defeated Pureblood, a Vampire capable of easily catching bullets. He was also able to subdue Homeless Emperor with his bare hands, although Homeless Emperor's physical abilities are very weak in comparison to other Dragon level monsters.

Marksman: Zombieman is shown using a handgun with some proficiency.

Swordsman: Having a katana, Zombieman likely has some swordsmanship skills.

Miscellaneous Abilities

Proficient Detective: Zombieman has been shown to have some skills in investigation, as he was able to locate Dr. Genus with little information to work with.


Trench Coat: Zombieman's trench coat possesses special properties allowing him to carry a lot of various weapons with him at all times.[9]

Desert Eagle: Zombieman's signature handgun. Zombieman wields a black desert eagle.[10] The Desert Eagle has Zombieman's experiment subject number, 66, engraved on the gun's frame on the right side.[11]
S&W 500: Zombieman wields a black S&W 500 revolver.[12]
Beretta: Zombieman wields a black Pietro Beretta 9mm.[13]
Long-bearded Axe: Zombieman's favored melee weapon. Zombieman has been witnessed using a long bearded axe as one of his primary weapons. The axe has a wooden handle and a larger blade than most axes.[14] It greatly resembles axes used in battles in the Viking Era. He is shown wielding it when confronting Dr. Genus.[15]
Katana: Zombieman was seen carrying a slightly curved katana.
