The well known manga and anime series My Hero Academia is an excellent inspiration for entertaining cosplay. Because it’s teeming with interesting superhero contenders. A popular option is certainly Eijiro Kirishima cosplay , also a student of the U.A. high school. He too dreams of being a real professional hero in the end. Here you can find out everything you need to know about Eijiro Kirishima – who is also known as Red Riot – so that you can portray him convincingly.

Characteristic look of Red Riot (Eijiro Kirishima)

Eijiro Kirishima Cosplay

Eijiro Kirishima Cosplay is quite robust and muscular. His hair is particularly striking because it is flaming red and stands out from the head in all directions. When viewed as a whole, the hair is somewhat reminiscent of horns, which go out from the sides of the head. Directly above the right eye, Eijiro has a small scar, which at first glance might be mistaken for a slightly too long eyelash.

Interestingly, while Kirishima was in middle school, her hair was still black and less spiky and unruly. When he entered high school, he then changed the styling of the hair to the current style.

Of course Eijiro, like all the other students of Hero Academia, wears the prescribed official school uniform during school time, which consists of dark green pants, a white shirt with a wine-red tie and a light gray blazer.

Eijiro Kirishima Cosplay’s hero costume of each of the candidates for professional hero always differs from the costumes of the others and is truly unique and original. The costume is always closely related to the quirk of the respective student. In the case of Red Riot, his upper body is only covered by a vest. On his shoulder blades he has parts that look like gears. Apart from that his upper body is naked. The pants are dark grey and over them he wears a kind of skirt, which is quite tattered. A belt with a distinctive buckle in the shape of an R completes the outfit, which also includes a mask.

Personality of Eijiro Kirishima


Eijiro Kirishima Cosplay stands out with his outgoing, sympathetic, spontaneous and very open manner. He likes the concept of masculinity very much and uses appropriate words. He sees himself as very masculine. People who are masculine, courageous and strong quickly gain his respect, his admiration and then of course his friendship. He loves retro heroes like Crimson Riot, who is an inspiration for him not least because of his hero name.

Eijiro Kirishima Cosplay is determined and direct and is also very kind and sincere. All these qualities have even earned the explicit praise of professional hero All Might. No wonder, because this is what makes a real superhero.

Eijiro finds it very easy to make new friends and is therefore one of the few students in Class 1-A who maintains friendships with both Izuku Midoriya and Katsuki Bakugo. For Red Riot, his friends are practically sacred and he always stands up for them. If necessary, he is even willing to break laws and rules, and the buddies can always rely on him, as friendship is his highest priority.

His quirk is the hardening – more about that in a moment. He himself does not find it at all noteworthy and it seems to him rather average or even unworthy. Accordingly, he is often eaten up by self-doubt.

In spite of all this he is hot-blooded, daring and self-confident in the fight, but not as wild and passionate as Katsuki.

Mack and skills of Eijiro Kirishima


Like all high school students of professional heroes, Eijiro has a so-called quirk (English Quirk), which gives him special abilities that make him a superhero. In the case of Kirishima, this is the hardening. He is able to harden and sharpen any part of his body as needed. This can then be used as a weapon in battle. This is very useful not only for attack but also for protection against enemy attacks, and even repels heat and shock waves. As with all other Macks, the Red Riot Mack also has a certain disadvantage. For example, its skin does not withstand much in a hardened state and tends to crumble in case of damage. However, he can improve this circumstance by training.

As soon as Eijiro Kirishima uses the Macke, his physical strength seems to increase. For example, he managed to dig through several tons of scrap metal at the school sports festival and to withstand Katsuki’s explosions without any problems. When arm-wrestling against Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu, his fingers literally dug through the concrete. He can also break several metal blades with a single blow of his elbow.

His resistance and endurance also increases as soon as he uses his grip.

His scar over his eye is from an incident when his mack appeared for the first time. He was only three years old at the time and woke up at night to go to the toilet. Overslept, he rubbed his eyes and injured himself on the eye because his hand had hardened without him being aware of it.
