For the longest time he had dubbed himself Rabbit.
Even though he was considered nothing more than Project Nomu: Beta.03 .
But, how could he not call himself Rabbit? He looked just like one.
Well, a gaunt, long faced rabbit with a sharp pointed bottom jaw, and mouth that appeared to have no lips.
His his mouth was stretched forcefully in a smile that would send shivers down even the most terrifying villains spines.
Large bulging eyes that seemed almost too big for his head swiveled to and fro, mindlessly watching their surroundings.
His head was attached to a thin neck, that looked as if it would snap if a strong wind came and blew on it.
Small patches of scales appeared at random areas on his thin blackish green body, the most prominent patch creeps along the right side of his lower jaw.
The deceptively thin body he has is home to frightfully long and gaunt legs, with twisted and patchy flesh that eerily resembled a rabbit’s back legs.
His feet have long sharp claws attached to all five digits on his feet, and gangly arms droop lazily to rest on the ground.
Connected to the arms are disturbingly human hands, perfectly intact.
The look is completed with long, ragged, and rabbit like ears that droop downwards of the sides of his head.
And the soft noticeable smell of death that would cling to his soft leathery skin would always disturb those with a keen sense of smell.
So all in all, Rabbit , thought he looked like a rabbit- a rather scary, nightmarish version of a rabbit, but that was okay with him, because unlike all other nomus.. He could remember what a rabbit was.
He could remember animals, he could remember grass and trees. He could even remember the feeling of sun beating down on light, soft skin.
But the one thing that would always stand out in the small amount of things he could recall, would have to be the fleeting image of a small ash-blonde child who always seemed so upset .
That was the one thing that would keep him busy with the other voices in head for days , after all, noumu should not be able to remember anything, but nonetheless, Rabbit was different from the rest.
And if there was one thing he could be happy for, it would be the fact he was not as mindless as any of the others.
Hey look- Look look look! Here comes handman again!! Look look look!
A male voice excitedly chirps in Rabbit’s head, causing the noumu to focus his eyes where the voice was mentally pointing.
Sure enough the man covered in hands was back again, observing some of the other Noumu before pausing in front of Rabbit’s container, a dark smile tugging at the hand covered man’s lips.
“You would be perfect for my next game.” The man murmurs, licking chapped lips as a dark, twisted grin makes itself present on his face.
“You would be a great secondary surprise boss to throw at All Might .” He says this while scratching at his scabbed neck.
Handman turns around and swiftly walks out, muttering something about a USJ .

Chapter 2: I am Here
He hated the screams
What? Me? Updating so soon? eyyup.
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Rabbit did not fully understand why he had been made the way he had been. He never understood why the doctors liked to cause harm to others when it made no sense . Why hurt someone like that when there was no real point to make something hurt if only to find amusement in their suffering?
Maybe it’s because they just want to break someone! The voice from the other day rumbles to Rabbit , causing the noumu to sigh sadly as he watched another person get dragged through past his container.
It was saddening hearing the cries and begging of people before they’re turned into Noumu, it always hurt just hearing someone scream in pain, begging and crying for someone to help, even when the help never came.
Soon enough, Rabbit felt the need to cover his ears when the screams began, begging of someone to please save them, that they didn’t want to die.
Rabbit couldn’t handle the screams .
Rabbit barely managed to take notice of the lights turning off as the last person finally left the building.
Rabbit couldn’t handle the painful screams from that person anymore
He couldn’t handle the sobs he could still hear.
And those were his last coherent thoughts as he unlike any other Noumu before him, broke out of his container.
When Rabbit snapped back mentally, he was inside of the room that held the source of the sobbing that hurt Rabbit .
“Pl-Please.. I d-don’t want to be hurt again.” The person says when he notices Rabbit who looks down at him before holding out a hand.
“I-I help.” he manages to mutter, mentally wincing at his deep garbled voice grated at his own ears, however the soft spoken words seemed to have calmed the person down enough for them to shakily take ahold of Rabbit’s hand that was offered.
Rabbit looks tiredly at the person before he pulled them closer before he gently grabbed the person’s head, making them jerk a bit.
“H-Hey- you s-said you were going t-to help ” The person stutters out to Rabbit , still not having been able to see the noumu’s body.
“I am.” Rabbit whispers this before he twists harshly with his head that had been holding the person’s head. A loud sickening snap echoes in the room before Rabbit gently lays the now dead person onto the ground as some faint words came from a distant memory- they urged him to say something.
“Have no fear,” He whispers this softly as he looks at the corpse before he turned away and lumbered back to the door, taking one last peek at the corpse before the last few words slip through his mouth. “For I am here .”

Chapter 3: Ten Year Anniversary
Loss is hard on a parent
...sorry... sorry for hurting Inko.
but it needed to happen sorry sorry
Come join my discord channel!!! https://discord.gg/WpGxqyx
It was slightly chilly today outside with a twenty percent chance for rain, or at least that’s what Inko had heard from some of the doctors here at the hospital she had been living in for about nine years now.
Inko had been living at a mental hospital for nine years, nearly one year after her sweet little Izuku had gone missing due to her failure to protect her child. It was her fault her baby was gone. She should have just insisted that her little Izuku and his childhood friend Katsuki stay at her home to play, but she didn’t.. She let them go to the park about ten minutes away from home and the last thing she had ever told her son wasn’t I love you . It was ‘Come back home before it gets dark okay Izuku?’
The loss had torn at her from the seams, leaving her nothing but a hollow shell until she had tried to take her life almost a year after her little sunshine had disappeared, only for her suicide attempt to have been stopped by her best friend from her own childhood, Mitsuki Bakugou, who had planned a surprise visit to her best friend, only to have found Inko attempting her own life with a knife to her wrist.
Which is how Inko had ended up in the mental hospital for the last nine years, but the doctors say her depression was getting better lately, there’s even been some talk about letting her be checked out of the mental hospital too.
A soft knock draws Inko’s attention from the window she had been lifelessly staring at, turning to look at the doorway where a tall teen stood, messy ash-blonde hair pointing in every direction possible. A basket in one arm while he held a foldable table in the other, the boy having used his foot to make some sort of sound as to not startle the green haired lady.
“Hey Auntie Inko..” The red eyed teen says this as he walks into the room, finally having gotten his secondary mother figure’s attention, her previously dead, glazed over eyes had instantly lit up when she say the teen.
“Katsuki! You’re back.” Inko says this, a smile on her face as she gently pats her bed, gesturing the middle schooler, (or was he in high school now?) to sit down next to her, smiling kindly to the teen.
“My stupid old hag sent some food with me for us to eat while I’m here.” Katsuki says this, his red eyes soft as he looks at the frail woman before he gently set down the basket next to her so he could set up the foldable table he had rented to use here in Inko’s room.
“How have your grades been? Have you been keeping up with your grades sweetie?” Inko says this softly, a gentle tone in her voice as she spoke to the blonde setting up the temporary table by her bed.
“I’m top in the class Auntie.” Katsuki says this softly as he finishes setting up the table before he grabs the basket of food, gently setting the bentos of food down on the table. “The old hag sent some Katsudon with me this time, and it’s still warm since it was just made before I left home to come here.” Katsuki says this gently as he opens Inko’s bento, smiling gently before he handed her a pair of chopsticks.
“Katsuki dear.. You shouldn’t call your mom an old hang.” Inko says this, shaking her head slightly in amusement due to the way the boy spoke about his mother.
“Sorry Auntie.” Katsuki says this, blushing sheepishly at the light scolding he had received. “I’ll try not to do it again.” He says this softly to Inko who just smiled back at the boy.
“No worries sweetie.” she says this before they both began to eat their cooling dinner in a comfortable silence. Sadly, soon enough it was time for Katsuki to leave or else he could miss the last train back home.
“I’ll come back again tomorrow okay Auntie?” Katsuki says this after he backs everything up. “I was told I could leave the table here when I leave since they’re going to come check up on you soon anyways.” Katsuki says this, smiling slightly to his aunt.
“Alright Kastuki- Oh! But before you go.. Could you tell me something sweetie?” Inko says this, as if she had just remembered something.
“Sure thing. I have another twenty minutes before the train gets there, but it’s about a ten minute walk from here to the station.” He says this softly before looking back up to Inko.
“I couldn’t help but notice that you forgot to mention Izuku and his grades again sweetie.. You two are still in the same class right?? I know he’s been terribly busy lately where he couldn’t see me during your visit again… so I’m worried about his grades.. Is his grades fine?? Is he fine?” Inko says this, worry in her voice as she rapid fired these questions to Katsuki, who gave Inko a slightly strained smile.
“O-Oh.. Yeah… Deku’s second in class- right after me of course… and I’m sorry he’s been too busy to come see you Auntie.. He’s been studying really, really hard for finals. He told me that he wished he could make it with me to these trips but he’s just a little too busy right now… Sorry Auntie.” Katsuki says this softly, voice cracking a bit as he blatantly lied to his secondary mother figure who just smiled and nodded.
“Alright.. Well, please do remind him that I would love it if he could come and visit his poor old mother alright dear?” She says this before she shoos Katsuki. “Now go on, you should leave now or else you’ll get stuck with traffic dear.”
Katsuki nods before he slowly walked out the room, barely making it outside to shut the door to her hospital room before the tears started to fall from his eyes as he leaned against the door to Inko’s room.
Katsuki covered his eyes with his free hand as he cried there silently in front of the closed door to Inko Midoriya’s room.
Katsuki did not make it to the train on time that night and ended up having his dad come and pick him up.
Chapter 4: Reflections
Who is that I see, staring right back at me.
Kudos to whoever guesses what song I was blasting while typing this chapter up!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
It was dark again silence roaming through the dark and dead building, no one around anymore due to everyone having gone home for the day, and as always at this time.. Rabbit wondered just like anyone would do when they were alone.
Rabbit wondered what the point to life is if it was filled with nothing but pain, is that perhaps why people kill themselves?
Either that or they just gave up on life Little One A soft voice chimes in, making Rabbit tilt his head.
“Ah.. yeah maybe. I don’t think I would know.. Unless one of you tried before you ended up here.” Rabbit mutters this back softly to the voice as he gently pushed open his container, (or at least, Rabbit’s version of gentle.) taking a slow step out of the container.
Are you going to finally leave this place Little One ? The same voice whispers to him, causing the noumu to stop in mid step, having not even thought of that, he lets out a soft strangled noise at the thought of even leaving the building.
It both terrified and thrilled Rabbit at the thought of going outdoors- but he knew he shouldn’t because he was Noumu , meaning he lived here and only here.
Oh come on, have some courage for once you fucking coward. Someone snarls in his head, making Rabbit wince and whimper at the pure anger and hate in the deep grouchy voice that continued to urge the large noumu to leave the building and all the pain behind.
“I-I can’t…” He whispers this as he takes a few timid steps away from his container, before he stopped, making another strangled noise before he felt himself being pushed back mentally.
Let me take control then you fucking coward. I’ll get us the fuck out of here so you don’t have to keep your stupid sniveling up and annoying me so stop fighting back already you stupid brat, you’re just a walking skin suit for us so shut up and let me have control.
The voice demanded as it pushed again at Rabbit who growled a bit as he held his head in both hands, growling and whimpering. “Stop stop stop stop- I don’t wanna nearly kill anyone again p-please.. I don’t wanna suffocate someone…” He whimpers before the feeling suddenly disappears.
Its okay kid… The mean man is gone for now.. The soft calm voice whispers as the pain Rabbit was feeling slowly went back to normal levels as he whimpered out thank you to the kind voice. No worries kid.. So don’t worry alright? So just take deep breaths and get up alright?
The voice was kind and understanding to Rabbit, that voice was the voice Rabbit liked out of all the others- she was always very nice and not screaming at him like one of the other voices did, and due to this, she reminded Rabbit of.. someone that he had known before he was like this .
Rabbit leaves the containment area to slowly wander the halls for something to do, as he walked through the halls, he silently kept a muttered conversation with kind voice in his head, feeling happiness as he continued the pleasant conversation until something caught his eye on the left, making him freeze up and snap his head in that direction.
There before him sat a monster that looked like some sort of mutated Rabbit- it made Rabbit’s heart leap to his throat before he forced himself to calm down and slowly approach the mirror, his large eyes staring at the form in front of him, slowly raising a hand upwards before gently putting the human like hand on the glass, a small unhappy noise leaves the noumu’s maw as he stared at the monster in front of him.
“Unnatural.” He whispers this softly before he hissed. “Not natural.. Freak.. Monster.” He whispers this as he stares unforgivingly at his reflection.
His stomach was twisting painfully as he stared at himself through the glossy mirror like glass. “Just.. who am I?” he whispers this softly, the reflection he stares at gives no answers.. But neither do the voices in his head, for once.. Everything was silent as Rabbit stared at his reflection.
Rabbit ends up staring at his reflection for hours until the humans for the morning appear.
Rabbit almost doesn’t make it back to his container in time before the humans got there to check all the other noumu.
For once.. Rabbit was thankful for the strange quirks he had, after all, had he not had them.. He probably would have never made it into his container and shut it before any of the other humans got there.
Anyone else felt their heart shatter a bit when rabbit asked who he is?
And kudos if anyone can guess who the bold voice is.

Chapter 5: Thoughts
Thoughts of others
You know... someone brought it to my attention that the way I explained what Rabbit looked like.. that they imagined Kyo's cured form from Fruits Basket...
Honestly I can see it. anyhow, as for the last chapter... A lot of people guessed wrong for the voices, I'll tell yout his they are NOT Bakugou or Inko's voices >w>
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Rabbit should have thought more before he had done what he did a few days prior, because of the sudden death that had happened in the middle of the night, the whole pace was on lockdown and security was rather tight- especially after his container had been found unlocked.
This fact had saddened Rabbit, but nowhere near as how sad he was when he watched someone drag a large garbage bag out that obviously had the corpse of the stranger he had helped.
It hurt to see the way the body was treated after it was no longer animated, but the swift death that Rabbit had delivered was much more merciful than what the human would have endured if he had not intervened and helped.
Sometimes Rabbit wondered if it was okay that he just sat here and watched it all happen when he could be out there helping people
Or your worthless ass could be robbing banks for me. The bold, dark voice hisses at Rabbit mentally, making the Noumu shift slightly.
I think I would much rather him help people and show them that he is here to help. The soft feminine voice whispers to Rabbit, sending a rippling wave of comfort through his body.
I’d honestly prefer it too- but it would be even better if he could figure out a way to split us all up into individual bodies again.
Rabbit blinks a little bit at the somewhat deep male voice, having not heard that one in a while- or at least not since ‘handman’ had shown up about two weeks ago.
Of course, Rabbit shouldn’t be that surprised by the fact that the third voice had finally shown back up again, after all it was a little unusual if he was ever left in complete silence from one voice for too long.
Sorry I took so long to actually speak up- I was trying to figure out some way we could split up but.. Nope. Not possible until we find out how exactly we were made- but that's fine since we can just search for the notes when security loosens up again.
Rabbit shakes a little bit at this, of course the other male voice was trying to figure things out again - but that was fine Rabbit guessed, as long as he didn’t act like the mean voice.. Then again, Rabbit was fine with anything the other had decided to do in its free time (which was all the time but still)
Leave it for that idiot to get lost in thought for two fucking weeks. You’d think he’d at least know this chromedome a little better but I guess fucking not.
And there goes the joyful mood as always, let it be known that the rude male voice never let any of them be happy for very long.
Oh hush it- Both of you, can’t you two see you aren’t exactly helping the poor kid?
Of course when the feminine voice spoke up, the other two quickly shut up, making Rabbit rumble slightly in gratitude as he felt his eyes get a little heavy before the world drifted away as his eyes closed.
When Shigaraki had been told of another Noumu that was designed to go up against All Might , he was ecstatic about the hidden boss that he could add to his game against All Might.
The thought of two noumu being able to withstand All Might was enthralling to Shigaraki- especially after he was told what quirks the other mysterious Noumu had, and all of them just sent pleasant shivers down the villain’s spine when he thought of the havok the Noumu could cause.
Not only had the noumu been built to withstand All Might , but it was also built to be able to handle the number two hero as well, and that was what really made Shigaraki ecstatic about the beta Noumu.
The quirks the noumu had were simple but amazing when combined, as simple as the quirks were, they had many uses, especially the strengthening quirk that was on par with All Might’s own quirk, or at least that’s what Sensei kept telling Shigaraki.
“Kurogiri.” Shigaraki whispers this as he looks away from the papers he had been fiddling with while he thought of the ‘new’ noumu Sensei had let him see two weeks prior.
“Yes Shigaraki?” The wispy bartender says this as he cleans yet another glass that had been used previously, however even as the bartender spoke to the pale blue haired man, his eyes did not leave the glass once.
“What do you think of my new secret boss that I’m adding to our lineup for the next game here soon?” the man asks the wispy villain before taking a sip of his drink while he waited for the older villain to respond.
“You mean the noumu correct?” Kurogiri says this softly, humming a bit as he thought. “Well… I think the quirks it has will be useful in combination with the newer Noumu that your Sensei gave you to fight All Might with.” Kurogiri says this before he gently set the glass down.
“I can hear a ‘however’ in your voice Kurogiri.” Shigaraki says this as he sets his glass down without real care, making a loud clunk when it was set down on the wooden counter.
“I was getting to that.” Kurogiri says this calmly as he pulled another glass out to clean, before he continued to speak. “You see.. I am more concerned for what Sensei had told you about this Noumu you’re so.. Enticed with… The fact that it was never used in the first place due to it not fully listening to commands is slightly worrisome. It makes me worried about bringing it on the playing field during such an important fight, especially when we will not be able to constantly watch over it.” Kurogiri explains this gently to the man child, who growls a bit.
“If Sensei says that it will be no problem, then it will be no problem .” Shigaraki hisses this out as he began to scratch at his neck in irritation. “Sensei said that there would be no issue with Noumu since it normally will just observe instead of partaking action. I’m sure it won't be too hard to force it to fight with us against All Might Kurogiri. It's just a mindless beast like the rest of them… meaning it won’t be hard to tame the beast and use it to our advantage. Even if it kills some of my pawns somehow, it won’t be too hard to replace them. After all, they’re just supposed to be feeder so we can get to the main boss.” Shigaraki says this as his neck began to bleed a bit from how much he had been scratching it.
“And what if that so called ‘mindless beast’ you plan on taming… ends up turning on its master … What would you do then?” Kurogiri says this, finally looking up at Shigaraki who pauses in scratching his neck before a large, terrifying smile forms on the pale haired man.
“Easy… I’ll just remove it from my party if it does that.” Shigaraki lets out a dark laugh after he says this, wrapping all five fingers around his empty drink glass, watching it decentagrate, as if using it as an example to what he would do with the new noumu if it attacked him.
Kurogiri let out a soft, mournful sigh. “That's the twentieth glass today Shigaraki.” At times like this.. Kurogiri wondered if being a villain was really worth it.
I actually had fun taking my time with this chapter.. Its.. interesting typing Kurogiri and Shigaraki...

Sometimes Rabbit could hear people and objects outside if he sat and listened hard enough, if he only stretched his quirk out past its limits just to hear something other than the screams of pain that echoed, something other than the deafening silence that would follow once the screams stopped for good.
Sometimes he could hear other people talking on the phone, or even cars honking with muttered curses hidden under the loud honking that belonged to the cars owners.
Sometimes he could hear the distant sound of the rivers (Or were they oceans..?) right on the edge of his hearing, causing his body to slightly sway with the sound of the soft currents that always managed to help him calm down when none of the voices could.
They were strange and beautiful sounds, but he couldn't hear them as often as he wish he could.
Rabbit wondered how many people would cower because of how strange and disgusting he was, he wondered if he would be locked away for just being a monster.
“B-but you’re not! You’re not scary at all Mr. Rabbit!”
A voice that Rabbit hadn’t heard before- it made him blink slowly before humming slightly “But I am…” he gurgles softly.
“Nuh-uh!” The voice denies. “A monster is someone who does really, REALLY bad things- like a villain! And they do it for fun, and they make people hurt cuz’ they think is okay and fun.” The voice says, happily reassuring Rabbit that he is not a monster.
“But if I am not a monster… then.. What am I?” Rabbit whispers softly to the voice, a slight pleading tone in the Noumu’s voice as he spoke.
“Well.. You’re a hero! A big strong Bunny hero!” The voice chirps. “ You’ll beat all those bad guys up and make em’ become good guys too!” The child’s voice happily cheers to Rabbit, who had forgotten how to breathe momentarily when the child’s voice had told him that he was a hero , because it was.. Unfathomable for Rabbit to ever have considered it.
“But.. Heroes aren’t terrifying.. Heroes don’t look like monsters..” Rabbit mutters softly to the child, and said child gives the blackish green skinned noumu a short giggle.
“No! Not all heroes are friendly looking!!! Just look at Mr. Gang Orca! He's pretty scary too, but he’s still a hero! There’s lots of scary hereos, but they’re still really nice and they’re still heroes! There’s even some Villains that seem like really nice people.. Or even look normal.. But they.. Really aren’t that nice… One of my friends wanted to be a hero really bad, but he acted more like a villain cuz’ he always picked on quirkless kids! But I think Kacchan is gonna be a really cool hero when he grows up! Not as good as you though!”
The kid explains to Rabbit, and.. Rabbit has the impression the kid was probably smiling from how happy the child sounded.
“I.. Didn’t know heroes could be scary like that..” Rabbit whispers softly, humming slightly as his body sways gently in the tank.
“I should really go though….. It was really nice talking with you Mr. Rabbit! I’ll really try to say hi again to you soon!” the kid says happily, and Rabbit lets out a soft whine.
“Oh! I forgot to say my name- My name is Izuku but you can call me Deku! Everyone else does… I’ll see you again really soon though Mr. Rabbit! Please stay as kind as you are!” And just like that, Rabbit no longer could hear the child's voice, and so.. Yet again Rabbit was left alone to his thoughts, but this time his thoughts weren’t as dark as they normally were.
No, because for once they were filled with curious thoughts about the child’s voice that sounded so familiar and yet he couldn’t remember, no matter how hard he tried.

Chapter 7: Unforeseen
Unforeseen things can happen at any moment
Honestly this chapter gave me the biggest issue yet? - Also please note this chapter is unbetaed!!
The next update might be in about a month or so, just so I can have enough time to make the chapter a little bit longer next time!!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Rabbit had been removed from his tank earlier today along with another noumu that had just been completed earlier this week.
Rabbit however didn’t know how to feel completely surrounded by others, for it was something that he hadn’t had the real chance to actually do, you know.. Being a noumu and living in a tank and all that is.
It was strange, unsettling and terrifying, so of course he would follow Shigaraki rather quickly- he saw no real reason why he shouldn’t follow the hand covered man, he had no reason why he shouldn’t- that and he knew it was better that he follow the man as he was ‘instructed’ to do (and by instructed, Rabbit meant that he was given an order. Then again, he never really followed them completely per say)
So when they had stepped through large black inky portals that lead them to a new area, Rabbit was somewhat confused as he looked around before his eyes swiveled to where he saw a large group of terrified students and two lone pro heroes that looked shocked about masses of Villains appearing out of thin air.
His large eyes swiveled around to look over at the pale blue haired man standing nearly out of his sight before his eyes swiveled back forward to the front of his face to look back at the mass of children hanging out on the steps of the large domed building, his stomach twisting slightly as he looked at each horrified face belonging to the teens.
This isn’t right… Why would they just attack innocent students ? The only female voice says to Rabbit, making the noumu grimaced a bit at that thought.
Probably because these are students from UA, and its from the hero course. It would make sense that they try and break own the next gen of Pros before they really even start. The kind male voice speaks up with rationality and pity in his voice, making Rabbit frown a little at that fact. It was sad but it was most likely the exact reason why the villains were there in the first place.
But didn’t hand man mention something about killing some sort of symbol- Peace or whatever. The normally vicious voice speaks up, obviously treading his words carefully as he spoke to Rabbit and the other two voices.
Symbol of peace - what do you me- the female voice starts to speak, however she’s swiftly interrupted by the other male voice who seemed rather scared and worried at that fact.
Symbol of Peace- You mean.. They’re here to try and Kill All Might? - That must mean he’s a teacher at UA now.. But I didn’t see him anywhere, the only heros I saw were those two in the front of the students… but.. If they were after All Might.. Then they obviously plan on using both that other Noumu and us to try and kill him. The voice speaks up, fear laced in his voice as he told the others, Rabbit felt a bit sick as he heard this from the usually cheerful voice.
Rabbit never wanted to kill anyone - he didn’t want to hurt people. He hated hurting people, it always made him feel so sick afterwards.
Sometimes you can’t make it through life without hurting anyone kid… The soft voice gently tells him as Rabbit felt ill at the thought of hurting someone who did not deserve or need the unnecessary pain.
However the sudden shout of a command from Shigaraki that was aimed at the black noumu who had stood imposingly next to Rabbit and the pale blue haired man, its muscles went taunt. The black noumu turned to look at a scraggly man who looked as if he hadn’t gotten a decent amount of sleep in years, before it lunged and attacked the black haired man.
The long eared noumu felt ill as he watched the brutal one sided fight between the human and other Nomu before his ears twitch as he heard something coming from the direction where the large lake was, and so the noumu turned his head to look at the water. His eyes landed on a dark green haired girl and purple haired boy stood, completely soaking wet from having been in the water. However both of the teens eyes met the large unblinking orbs belonging to Rabbit, both freezing up when the large eared Nomu had turned to look at them.
However, Rabbit.. Didn’t want to let Shigaraki notice the kids, so the noumu just nodded slightly at the kids, small bits of worry in his eyes before he slowly turned his head back to where the Pro Hero was fighting the other noumu.
The sight left Rabbit feeling completely ill at the fact that the man had done nothing wrong but try to protect his students, it was wrong - what the villains were doing was wrong and it left a bitter feeling in the greenish black noumu’s heart.
I’m sorry you have to see this Rabbit… The kind voice whispers to him softly, regret in her voice as she spoke to the noumu, gently whispering apologies to the noumu and completely distracting him from the fights that were happening around the rabbit like noumu.
By the time the noumu was calmed enough to notice what was happening around him, the villain who had helped portal everyone to the USJ, was being held down by a spikey blond haired boy that made his head suddenly start hurting.
Memory flashes of the small little blonde child who was always so upset and angry - Rabbit felt like his head was going to explode as the memories force their way through his head, soon enough the ghostly image of the small child overlapped with the teenager who held the black mist of a villain down against the rocky terrain.
“Now first… Lets get our gate back.” Shigaraki’s voice startled Rabbit, causing dread to fill Rabbit as everything seemed to just slow down as the black Noumu lunged.
Before Rabbit could even think, he was moving , nothing but a blur as time raced against him- he couldn’t let that noumu hurt Kacchan - the name had easily slipped into the noumu’s mind as he raced forward.
A loud boom echoed through the USJ, dust flying from the source of the noise. Shock filling everyone’s body as the dust cleared enough where they could see both of the inhuman creatures in front of the blond teenager who kept Kurogiri down.
Rabbit had a somewhat feral look in his eyes as he looked down at the other noumu, who's whole arm went completely through Rabbit’s lower chest, firmly stuck in the pliable body of Rabbit’s.
Rabbit felt words dance on his tongue as he thinks of what the kid voice had once told him. Rabbit felt like he had to say it, he needed to tell them that it was okay, and so, the noumu let out a soft growl before he opened his mouth and began to speak, reciting the exact words that the kind voice had once told him.
“Wh-When there's someone you need to save, its given that person’s had to face some terrifying feelings.” Rabbit growls out as he digs his nails of his left hand into Noumu’s arm that was stuck in his lower chest, before he continued to speak.
“Saving not only a person's life.. But also their heart.. That's what it means to be a real hero.” Rabbit continues what he had once been told, pulling back his free arm and balling the hand into a fist, green lightning starts to dance around his arm as he condensed a deep rooted power inside of him.
“No matter how scary it gets… you must always wear a smile that says, ‘I’m fine!’ … Because in this world, the ones that smile.. Are the strongest of all!” Rabbit roars out, completing what the kind voice had once told him, before he brings the fist that was powered by one of his quirks, right down onto the other noumu’s head. Rabbit's fist had easily sunk into the other’s exposed brain, causing the other noumu screech a bit from the near fatal blow.
“Th-that’s what one of the voices told me once.” He whispers softly to the other noumu before he could feel his body start to melt- Rabbit had only one chance to do this right. One chance is all he would ever get.
“NOW HOLD STILL SO WE CAN DROWN YOU!” Rabbit roars before he lurches forward and uses the same arm that was still embedded in the other Noumu’s head, to cover the other’s face before the rest of Rabbit’s liquidated body followed.

Chapter 8: Simulation
Look into the past and maybe you might just find some things you had never thought to see.
....Yeah..... I didn't wanna wait til the 30th to post this ;w;
See you guys sometime next month!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
When Bakugou Katsuki was a child, he learned that life by no means was fair. He learned that there was nothing stopping life from ruining someone completely.
Katsuki learned that life would never be kind to anyone for very long, if not at all, at the tender age of 5 years. He learned this the hard way when his best friend Izuku had gone missing during a game of hide and go seek.
Katsuki learned the hard way of the meaning of the simple saying, “You never know what you have until it’s gone.” and, in all honesty, whenever someone mentioned Izuku, he would get a deep bitter feeling of anger and sadness , along with a maddening thought that always echoed in his head since the day Izuku Midoriya had gone missing.
“If I had been nicer, If I had just asked Izuku to play heroes instead of hide and go seek, then maybe Izuku would still be here today.” And the thought always left him bitter and empty.
It was when Katsuki was 6 years old, that he realized he needed to just hide the pain.
Katsuki realized that everyone pretended to understand, but, not a lot of people realized what it felt like to be angry about a single choice he made that costed his best friend’s fucking life .
Katsuki learned that everybody understands for a while , but he had also learned that what people don’t say, is that there’s a limit that someone could grieve.
So Katsuki decided that he needed to hide how he felt, he decided that he had to pretend that he wasn’t hurting anymore, he had to pretend that he was okay and that it was okay that Deku was gone.
Even though he knew it wasn’t okay and that he wasn’t okay either.
So at the tender age of 6, Katsuki hid away how he really felt, he hid how hurt he was, how angry he was at himself for letting Izuku just slip through his fingers and completely disappear.
He hid all of this, locking it away and throwing away the key before replacing the anger and hurt with a mask.
A mask of impulsiveness. He turned into a loud, brash and angry little boy who had nothing to lose.
Then again Katsuki never had anything else to lose after his best friend disappeared.
Katsuki couldn’t find it within him to befriend many other kids after Izuku disappeared, but he did at least ‘hang out’ with a few other kids that he and Izuku had known somewhat.
People came and went in Katsuki’s life as he grew older, quite a few were ‘friends’ that either moved away or also disappeared like Izuku did, and it hurt that he had to add more failures to his list.
But out of almost all his failures, two stood out the most. Two he could have easily prevented if he wasn’t so stupid.
The first one was when Izuku had gone missing, he could have prevented it.. But he didn’t, and he hated himself for it more and more each day.
However the burning hatred in his bones only grew worse when Auntie tried to kill herself almost a year after Izuku had gone missing.
He could have easily prevented Inko from attempting to kill herself if he had been there more often instead of trying to avoid the kind second mother figure that he had known since practically his birth.
Slowly, without realizing it, Katsuki had fallen into pit of self hatred and depression, and it was all his fault that it happened.
But despite all of this, Katsuki kept his mask on as he thought of better days with his only friend Izuku Midoriya.
Katsuki could remember the day his quirk first appeared, it was a memorable day for him, but it was nowhere near as memorable when Izuku had his appear.
It had been a chilly day when Izuku had come over, small rashes appearing at random on the tiny child’s body, along with a sore throat that made it near impossible for the young 4 year old child to talk.
Katsuki’s mother had made them some of her special death spice curry for them in hopes it would cheer up Izuku, who was the last kid to not have unlocked his quirk in their class.
“Thank you Auntie!” The small green haired bundle of sunshine said to the ashen blond female, who just snorted and shook her head before replying with a simple “It's no problem brat, now eat up, this should knock that sore throat away too.”
And of course, both 4 year old children gleefully started to eat the spicy food that would burn at their bellies and make their stomachs hurt later that day.
Or at least, that’s what should have happened, but instead everyone got a good surprize that had included Katsuki and his mother’s faces covered with soot and singled eyebrows from the flames that spewed out of Izuku’s mouth after he had ate over half of his food and went to ask for some more juice.
That had been a day that Katsuki, his mom and Izuku would remember forever.
Tobias O’Hare had never expected to hear from Japan’s number 1 hero ever again after the man had left America to go back to Japan where he was needed.
Not once did the rabbitesque hero ever think that All Might would have ever called for his help.
Tobias had never thought that he would have been any use to the other pro-hero after their co-op mission had ended a few years ago, so of course it was quite a shock to the american hero, that All Might would think of him as someone needed to search for a young missing child that was on the top of many more missing persons files.
And if there was one thing that the pro hero Hare hated, it would be people who would harm innocent kids, let alone kidnap them. So of course as soon as All Might had personally asked the Rabbit hero if he could help other pros and sidekicks search for a missing boy by the name of Izuku Midoriya, he had jumped at the offer and immediately said yes because the child was the same age as Hare’s own child.
However, during the flight to Japan, the american support hero wondered just why one small child took such a big priority, let alone caught All Might’s attention, so when he had been offered a file on the young child by one of the flight attendants for the private flight, the ginger and white rabbit had simply nodded before getting handed a rather small packet with some basic information that was pretty run of the mill.
Or well, at least it was until the rabbit found his way to the known relative pages, his eyes skimming a bit as he looked at the pictures and names of the people there on the file until one stood out to him, making the tall rabbit gape while his eyes widened.
“So that’s why this kid caught the attention of All Might.” The Rabbit hero mutters as he stares at the blonde hero picture in the list of known relatives, however it didn’t take long for another known hero to pop up in the kid’s relative list, along with one other made the rabbit whistle a bit.
“So the kid’s related to three heroes, two are the top of Japan and his dad’s one of the three pros too huh?” The rabbit mutters softly before letting out a small chuckle. “Talk about lucky genetics…” The man mutters before flipping to the next page.
When the plane landed, Hare was escorted from the plane straight to All Might’s office where he was paired with another hero who rubbed the rabbit like hero the wrong way, leaving the white and ginger furred man unsettled due to the deep rooted fear that filled him.
However, it wouldn’t be the first time he had this feeling around another hero, let alone with some sort of indistinct predator esque quirk. So the goggle wearing hero easily pushed past his uncomfortable feeling to start the mission.
Soon enough Hare and his temporary partner pro hero Baskerville Hound, found themselves treading around a large abandoned warehouse.
It had a large spike in electrical usage in the last few years, and could easily have been one of the places where someone with a hostage would be able to hide without really being found. On one of the sides of the building, Hare spotted a rather small window that was just low enough for the rabbit to most likely be able to see through if he pulled the large old dumpster that was off to the left of the window, under it.
“This way Baskerville, I can see a window from here. So we should be able to see what's inside.” The rabbit like hero whispers before swiftly making his way closer to the building where he spotted the small little window.
Soon enough the hero duo were able to get to the building without triggering any sort of alarm that could have been on the premises of the ‘unused’ warehouse.
“Help me move the dumpster under the window so I can take a peek inside..” The Rabbit whispers, his ears twitching a bit as he walked closer to the dumpster before pausing when he no longer heard the other hero following behind him.
“What are you wa-” right as he turned around, Hare felt something hit him in the stomach before pain shot through his body.
His eyes meet the person who was electrocuting him , his eyes widened before black spots filtered over his vision.
“Sorry there buddy. But you were getting too close for my boss’s comfort.” the other pro hero Baskerville Hound says, a small sadistic smirk on his face as the rabbit hero dropped out of consciousness.
Out of all the things that the pro hero Hare, also known as Tobias O’Hare, had ever expected.
A Pro Hero turned traitor was never one of them.
And just like that, the hero name Hare became nothing but a memory and a name down in a history book.
Toshinori Yagi had many regrets in life, especially when it revolved around past mistakes.
Toshinori regretted the fact that he couldn’t save everyone, he regretted on not being there for the people who had needed him, he regretted every second he had wasted on not being there with those people.
He regretted asking one of the few heros he had worked with back in America for help after he heard that Izuku had gone missing, however there was nothing the hero could do to change the fact that he held cracked, blood spattered goggles in his hands as the other hero who had been working with the hero named Hare, looked down as he explained that all he could find was Hare’s goggles down in an alleyway in Shinjuku, where their search had lead them.
“I’m sorry sir- It’s just that I looked away for one minute and.. He was just gone . I couldn’t find him anywhere but.. All I could find were his goggles.” Baskerville Hound stated, his voice low and somber as he spoke to the number 1 hero of Japan.
“No.. It's fine.” All Might manages to grit out as he stares down at the broken orange goggles that had belonged to the rabbit hero, his stomach feeling empty as he pushed away his grief.
“Sir?” The other hero whispers softly, causing All Might to look back up from the goggles. “He had a son.. Didn’t he?” The hero spoke up, causing All Mights blood to run cold. “I uh… remember him mentioning that his son’s birthday was here in a few days.”
All Might barely managed to keep the tears from spreading in his eyes. “Oh, that he did…” The man whispers, voice cracking painfully before he waved a bit in a dismissing gesture. “I.. should schedule flight back to America to… explain to his family as to why.. Hare won’t be coming back home.” The blond barely manages to say this before he swiftly walked away from the other hero who only nodded understandingly.
However, as soon as All Might was gone from sight, the other hero’s face broke out into a triumphant, dark grin as he called someone.
“Did the old man buy your explanation?” A cool and calm voice spoke into the traitor’s ears, and the ‘hero’ let out a low, deep bark of laughter.
“Of course he did- Hook line and sinker. I’m pretty sure his blond bitch ass is sobbing somewhere in a corner. All I had to do was feed him some simple sob-story that the twit just disappeared and all I could find were his goggles.” The hero snorts out as he walked away from where he was meeting All Might.
“Good.” Amusement seeped through the man’s voice on the other line, the man was obviously pleased at this.
“So.. What are you going to do to that kid anyways?” The hero asks, curiosity seeping in his voice as he asked his employer this simple question.
“I’m just.. Going to make him realize his true potential. That’s all.” and just like that, the call ended, leaving the tratorious hero befuddled and confused.
All Might did not want to do this- now don’t get him wrong, he loved seeing children, he honestly did love kids but he never wanted to see a kid break down after telling them that their dad would never be coming back home because of a mistake All Might made.
And so here he was, struggling to gain the courage to knock on the O’Hare family’s front door to their home. It took about ten minutes of talking to himself before he finally got the courage to knock on the front door.
All Might’s stomach twisted painfully as a young child answered the door to Tobias’ home, the small little five or six year old child that looked so much like the boy’s father.
“H-Hi…” the small child says, eyes wide as he stares up at the japanese hero with unhidden curiosity. “You’re one of Papa’s sidekicks!” The small little rabbit like child says happily, and All Might lets a soft smile slip on his face as he stared down at the young O’Hare child.
“No- I’m not one of Hare’s sidekicks.. I’m a pro hero from Japan.” All Might says softly, his normally loud and booming voice gone as he softly spoke to the child, guessing the boy must have had some sort of rabbit like hearing due to his appearance.
“Oh?” The child tilts his head before smiling widely and grabbing All Might’s giant hand. “C’mon! You’re a hero so you’re allowing inside silly!” The child says happily as he tries to drag the giant of a man into his home, causing All Might to chuckle as the sick feeling in his stomach starts to lessen little by little as he allows the child to drag him inside of the house. The blond haired man’s heart beating unsteadily at the fact that he had to tell the family why Tobias was no longer coming back home.
--------- Present time------
Everyone was frozen in shock as they watched the two giant noumus fight- however it was more like a one sided battle as the large rabbit like noumu blatantly attempted to kill the other noumu.
“Well?! What are you waiting for!” The rabbit like noumu hisses out at the frozen blond boy as he struggles to keep the other Noumu in his sludge body, Rabbit’s large yet beady eyes staring down the frozen teenager before roaring out “Go before he breaks free!”
If Rabbit could hold on just a while longer, so then the other noumu’s regeneration quirk should fail due to the lack of oxygen right?
Bingo Kid! That Noumu can only regenerate its lungs if it has oxygen!
Rabbit peers up a little at the kind male voice speaking up yet again, maybe the voices could help him too? It shouldn’t be too hard for them to instruct him right- His train of thought is cut off when the dark male voice speaks up with joy in his voice.
Finally. Something I actually fucking approve of. Make sure to seep down into his lungs so he can’t regenerate them.
I’m sorry you have to do this kiddo.. Please stay strong a little longer!
Rabbit grimmanced at this- he knew that he shouldn’t do this, he knew it was wrong- he knew killing was wrong, and he hated the feeling he had afterwards.
The deep bone crushing hate for himself for ending another beautiful life..
It was a horrible feeling and he fucking hated it.
Out of the corner of Rabbit’s eyes that were still very visible on his sludge like body, he saw that the boy still had yet to move.
Why wasn’t he moving- why in the hell wasn’t Kacchan moving away so he wouldn’t get hurt
Use your sludge to chuck that fleshsuit out of the way if you’re so damned worried about it. I’m sure you can use your other arm- Ah.. Shit, kid you should break off now unless you want to get pulverized!
The normally mean voice warns Rabbit, who quickly snaps back to attention when he sees that people were finally moving- meaning Rabbit should move too-
But if he did the kid would get caught in the blast-
OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD JUST FUCKING GRAB HIM AND GO BEFORE WE GET FLATTENED YOU ABSOLUTE DOLT !
The loudness of the voice quickly snaps rabbit back to reality again, urging the noumu to move and not be a sitting puddle-esc target.
Quickly ripping himself away from the other noumu, keeping his body nothing but a deep murky sludge as he darted at the blond, easily covering him with the thick black green sludge before he forcefully moved the kid.
“Stupid stupid stupid!” He hisses softly as he solidifies his arms and legs so he could leap off, ignoring the dull pain of explosions in his overly puffed out abdomen due to having both a nearly full grown teenager in there along with a giant enough air pocket for the teen to keep breathing long enough so the noumu could get them away from the fight.
When the large noumu’s eyes swiveled to look backwards, the large blond haired man was locked arm in arm against the other noumu, obviously struggling a bit as he shoved against the bulky mass of muscle.
Rabbit could deal with this if he didn’t have this stupid blonde haired Kacchan being such.. Such a- a.. Kacchan! The noumu hisses as he lands now, eyes glittering dangerously as he landed amongst the stupids from UA, his toxic eyes looking at the children as they were frozen in place by fear as the muffled noise of explosions and curses coming from the noumu’s stomach.
Everyone was too terrified to move when the demonic noumu had landed before them with a soft, dull splat. It’s eyes staring at everyone before it opened its mouth softly hissing as smoke left its maw.
“Keep him Here .” The demonic bunny says before its stomach practically melts- easily horrifying everyone as a soot and grime covered Katsuki Bakugou is delivered onto the ground, cursing up a storm as booms echoed from the palms of his hands.
“Y-You bastard!” the teen wheezes out as he gets fresh air at last. “What in the hell were you thinking - No one touches me! No one!” The blonde haired teen roars at the noumu that had saved him, the teen’s red eyes having shrunk as he glared down the rather giant creature that stood before him.
Rabbit growled softly as he stares down the small tiny human-
Sweetie, that kid is around the normal height for a human teenager. The kind voice cuts in, making the noumu huff a bit.
Yeah kid.. She’s uh.. Kinda right? Even though Im not much one to talk. I was well over 6 feet tall by the time I was in middle school. The kind male voice chirps in, chuckling sheepishly as he gently spoke to Rabbit.
Okay, so Rabbit had to admit he was rather tall, but still- the human teen was much shorter than Rabbit- that much was assured.
The teen didn’t take his eyes off of the noumu who started somewhat lifelessly at him, and it angered the teen that he was being ignored by the monster.
“Hey! Bastard- Don’t fucking ignore me god damn it!” Katsuki hissed as he let an explosion boom from the palm of his left hand, his angry red eyes boring a hole into the creature’s head.
The noumu grunted before it’s eyes lock onto Katsuki’s, making the teen tense as he waited for some sort of strike from the noumu- however what the youngest Bakugou got, was something he never once expected.
“Stop.. being such a.. Kacchan.” The noumu speaks, a soft child like amalgamation of a voice sending shivers down the ash blonde’s back as the old nickname from his childhood slips from the maw of the demonic creature.
“H-how do you know that name…” Katsuki whispers, his voice cracking as he stared directly into the noumu’s eyes.
The teen however does not a response due to the noumu suddenly snapping its head completely around to look behind itself.
The noumu growls before turning its head back to look at Katsuki before yanking the teen into its arm, along with the other few students gathered near, before it leapt right out of the way of a incoming ‘attack’ that shook the whole building.
Just yes. Come scream at me directly in my discord! https://discord.gg/WpGxqyx
