Dimple (エクボ, Ekubo) is a self-proclaimed upper-class evil spirit who has aligned himself with Mob after being defeated by him.


Dimple's distinguishing features are the red circles on his cheeks, which appear on the face of any human he possesses. His usual form is that of a wispy cloud of smoke, or, according to Teru, a "nasty-looking floating energy bulb". He occasionally grows arms, rarely legs. Even in his simplest form, his human-like face looks a little too detailed, with a prominent nose and lips.


Dimple wants to be a god. Specifically, he wants to be worshipped by all humanity. Despite having that kind of ego, he didn't hesitate to put himself at Mob's mercy in the hopes of using the boy to his advantage. At first, he wanted to steal Mob's body and use it to become a god, but he eventually decided to try to make Mob a god instead.

Dimple does not consider himself "dead".


(LOL) Cult Arc

Dimple founded a cult known as "(LOL)" (originally (笑) in Japanese), a laughter-based gathering that managed to amass several dozen people in only a month. When a member of (LOL) happened to bring Mob to a meeting, an ordeal ensued and ended in Dimple's defeat. Dimple showed up at Mob's house the next day and started following him around.

Teruki Hanazawa Arc

When Teru challenged Mob to use his power, Dimple stepped in to defend Mob but was almost completely obliterated by Teru.

Big Cleanup Arc

After recovering from being reduced to the size of a dust mite, Dimple went to the Kageyama residence. He couldn't get in due to a spiritual barrier around the house. Ritsu encountered him there and accidentally let him inside. The two ended up working together.

7th Branch Arc

After Ritsu tried to start a fight with Mob and was suddenly kidnapped, Dimple joined Mob and Teru on a mission to invade the 7th branch of Claw and retrieve Ritsu. Dimple possessed a nameless security guard. Dimple got defeated by Matsuo and subsequently captured. When he was released, he easily defeated Matsuo.

  • Dimple possessing a Claw security guard
  • Dimple possessing Banshomaru Shinra
  • Dimple possessing Mob
  • Dimple possessing Musashi Goda

Before being defeated by Mob, Dimple was a powerful upper-class evil spirit; he himself had stated he had gone through hellish battles to attain his levels of power.[2] He showed the ability to regenerate from damage,[3] transform different parts of his body[3] and even fire laser beams from his mouth.[2] However he was still barely a match for powerful espers such as Mob, Keiji Mogami, and Teruki Hanazawa, although the latter was when he was already significantly weakened.

After being defeated by Mob, Dimple lost much of his power, but still retained some of it and possessed basic psychic abilities. Dimple's main ability in this form is possessing humans and controlling them from inside. With more power he has also shown the ability to hypnotize and manipulate masses of people using mind signals without much effort.[4][5]

Dimple's Abilities
Possession & Hypnosis
Dimple has the ability to take over the bodies of humans. The possessed individual will appear to have Dimple's signature red cheeks and his voice. When possessing someone Dimple can use his host's body to its fullest potential, and is a skilled martial artist. However, if he is hit hard enough, be it physical or psychic power, Dimple can be forcibly knocked out of the host's body. When powered up he can also remotely influence or hypnotize a large amount of people at once.
When powered up, Dimple is able to manipulate the shape of his body at will. This includes regenerating damage or transforming his body into weapons such as claws or blades.
Wraither Beam
When powered up, Dimple can fire a massive laser beam from his mouth that requires a short charging time. It was a devastating attack but proved useless against Mob at 100% Rage.
Overrun Wraither Beam
A sub-technique of the Wraither Beam where the beam is split into smaller projectiles that explode on impact. It appeared to be one of his most powerful moves, though it did little against a powerful esper like Keiji Mogami.
When powered up, Dimple can deploy a thick cloud of black smoke from within his body to conceal his location. This makes it ideal for surprise attacks.

God Dimple

When Dimple fused with the Divine Tree, resulting in the creation of Psycho Helmet, Dimple's power grew to what he described as "godlike" levels. Through the Divine Tree Dimple's influence he could hypnotize anyone who so much as touched or consumed matter from the Divine Tree. He also controlled Psycho Helmet, which was powerful entity of its own, and could manipulate the matter of the Tree itself. Dimple also got a personal power boost that increased his abilities further than even that of his original powered-up form. He was extremely excited to have this new power and came up with all sorts of specially-named attacks.

  • God Punch - A powerful straight punch that sent Mob flying.
  • God Dash - A high-speed dash.
  • God Slam - Dimple slams the target's face into the ground.
  • God Toss - Dimple hurls the target into the air.
  • God Sandbag - Dimple repeatedly punches the target while they are restrained by vines.
  • God Beam - A superpowered Wraither Beam. Even Dimple was surprised by its destructive power.
  • God Barrier - A dense, circular energy barrier appears around Dimple.


  • "You're an animal who doesn't have emotions! Stop acting pissed off like a human!"[6]
  • "Wanna shake hands?"
  • "Well, if you cannot go to paradise when you die, you can always stay with me."[7]

Notes & Trivia

  • Dimple's Wraither Beam attack is a pun on the oft-used word for energy beams, the "laser beam".
  • ONE describes Dimple as preferring to be in dark, cool places during the Summer. [8]
  • In the Mob Psychic Battle mobile app, the security guard who Dimple possesses is given the surname Yoshioka. [9][10]
