Sho Suzuki (鈴木将, Suzuki Shō) is the son of the leader of Claw. He led a direct resistance against his father's world domination plan.

Appearance

Sho has spiky orange, upward-pointing hair, thin eyebrows, and blue eyes. He is usually seen wearing a white shirt, a green and white varsity jacket, jeans, and sneakers.

Personality

Sho is a confident and slightly arrogant teenager. He is very responsible for his age but not good at remaining calm.[3] He is energetic and optimistic, usually coming off as cheerful and candid. Despite his lighthearted demeanor, he is seriously determined and can be threatening when he wants to. He also seems to have inherited some of his father's merciless nature, brutally pummeling Ishiguro and going to great lengths to manipulate Mob into helping him, including faking the deaths of his entire family and burning down his house. When he gets emotional, he has been known to cover his face with one or both hands. From promotional art he seems to have an affinity for animals.

History

Sho is the son of Toichiro Suzuki and his wife, and was raised in a mostly loving environment. This changed when Toichiro created Claw. Like his mother, Sho refused to comply with the idea of Claw so he ran away from home.[4] He decided to personally oppose his father and prevent him from taking over the world. For that purpose, he began gathering allies, starting with several espers who used to be stationed at Claw HQ. These espers became his lackeys, and it seems that he lives with them. Sho is in contact with his estranged mother, who left his father a long time ago.

Plot

7th Division Arc

Sho first appeared at the 7th Division of Claw, where he hoped to recruit strong espers for his personal army. He encountered Ritsu and the other Awakening Lab kids as they were escaping. Sho warned them to return from whence they came, evidently thinking that they would get in the way of his plans. Ritsu challenged him and was utterly defeated off-camera. He stood by invisibly as Mob found the unconscious Ritsu and subsequently clashed with Muto. After the fight ended in a double K.O., Sho reappeared and talked to himself for a bit before hauling the Kageyama brothers off to Sakurai's Curse Room. Then he sat there reading manga as the incredulous Teru, already being held a prisoner in that room, wondered whether it was him who had defeated the brothers. Sho noticed Teru staring and teased him a little. He briefly conversed with Sakurai, Ishiguro and Muraki. It seems that Sho had already left the room when underlings showed up to announce (erroneously) that the boss of Claw had arrived.[5]

Later, Sho appeared at a critical moment to punch Ishiguro upside the head, counter his attack, and defeat him. He called Mob a disappointing wimp and gave Ritsu a significant glance before vanishing into thin air.[6]

World Domination Arc

Sho next appeared at the front door of the Kageyama household. He convinced Ritsu to accompany him, evacuated the latter's parents, and burned their house down as a means of inciting Mob to action. After watching Toichiro's world domination announcement on TV, Sho mobilized his troops and set off to confront his father directly. After defeating numerous low-level espers, he one-hit K.O.'d Hatori and finally reached his father. Sho released his Charge Bomb, Serizawa blocked it, and Toichiro retaliated with his own version of the technique.

Sho was pretty thoroughly defeated and about to get seriously hurt when Mob showed up and protected him from Toichiro's attack. When he learned that Mob had come to talk Toichiro down, Sho again thought of him as wimpy, but he soon realised that such an action actually requires great strength. He spilled the beans that had just been spilled to him, informing Mob that his father's secret technique was lending some of his psychic power to other people. Mob lent some of his own power to Sho, allowing him to stand up and walk. Soon enough, Sho and everyone, with the exception Mob and Toichiro, was left on the ground to helplessly watch the overpowered fight occurring above them.

After Toichiro's defeat, Sho seemed concerned about his father's fate. As Toichiro was being led away in Joseph's handcuffs, Sho told him that things aren't over and that he still needs to get scolded by Sho's mom.[7]

???% Arc

He saves his father during fight with ???%.

Epilogue

He takes part in Reigen's birthday.

Powers & Abilities

Sho is shown to be a very powerful esper despite his young age, able to effortlessly take out Ritsu and higher-level espers such as Ishiguro and Hatori. However, he is still clearly outmatched by the likes of Mob and his father Toichiro.

Sho's Abilities
Shotelek
Telekinesis
Sho is a skilled telekinetic. He seems to use a similar method of telekinetic movement that Teru employs, allowing him to deliver his knee directly to the faces of at least seven people in rapid succession.
Sholight
Light Distortion
Sho is able to manipulate light so that it bends around him, effectively rendering him invisible.[8]
Shonegate
Psychic Negation
Although the true nature of this ability has yet to be explored, Sho was somehow able to completely negate Ishiguro's Black Orbs. It's possible that he overloaded them with energy, similar to what Reigen could do with 1000% Gratitude, but this is left unclear.
Charge-bomb
Psychic Energy Storage / Charge Bomb
Sho is able to store energy within himself like his father. After 3 months of charging, Sho was able to discharge it all in a single attack with his Charge Bomb technique.[9]
