My Hero Academia is busier than ever these days as the manga is going through some major battles. After all, the series has reached its final act and the manga is putting everything on the line. Izuku has reached new levels of power and of course everyone is looking at Bakugo in light of his recent injuries. The hero’s best chance of survival depends on Edgeshot, so for once the pro takes center stage. And now the creator of My Hero Academia has taken a moment to reveal a wild detail about the hero.
And what is it about? Well, we’ve just learned what’s lurking under Edgeshot’s mask. Kohei Horikoshi clarified a point about the ninja-themed hero, and it turns out that the professional has facial hair.
It was kind of hard to tell because of all the blood and wounds, but he has a mustache

The information was shared in the most recent section of My Hero Academia. The release features many notes from Horikoshi, and Twitter user RukasuMHA shared the creator’s note on Edgeshot.
“It was kind of hard to tell because of all the blood and wounds, but he has a moustache. Edgeshot (Shinya Kamihara) and Dear Jeanist (Tsunagu Hakamada) are 2 years apart. Dear Jeanist was a third year, Edgeshot was a first year,” the summary reads.
As you can see above, Edgeshot has real facial hair. You can see this mustache briefly when Shinya Kamihara reaches Bakugo and tells Best Jeanist his sacrificial plan to save the boy. However, fans weren’t sure if the mustache was real hair or some sort of blood spatter. Anyway, we’ve now found out the truth and it seems fans are obsessed with the ninja’s unexpected facial hair.
After all, fans have been asking about Edgeshot’s features for years, and this reveal was hardly expected. The mustache looks good on the hero, but unfortunately My Hero Academia doesn’t seem to be giving us the chance to see more of it. Edgeshot’s plan to save Bakugo will kill him after all, and fans would bet that My Hero Academia chooses Izuku’s friend to save. But if we’re lucky, Dynamight might get a mustache in honor of the hero who saved his life in the distant future.
