- Gaku has always been a very optimistic and a sociable person and he loves hanging out with friends the most (to the point where he'd choose friendship over grades). He has always had a large group of friends and was considered to be a pretty popular kid at school.
- He wasn't liked by many teachers and parents because they'd see him as a delinquent because of quirk-based prejudice and his less-than-ideal attendance rate, but he is actually pretty well behaved (apart from his rough/intimidating actions he unconsciously does) and means absolutely no harm to anyone.
- None of his older friends applied for UA so he was rather hesitant at first if this was a good idea, but he decided to go forth and choose the hero course as he was genuinely passionate about helping others.
- Very outgoing! Pretty happy-go-lucky.
- Loves to eat,, he uses his enhanced senses to locate restaurants.
- Gaku loves to buy food for his friends and is surprisingly very generous! He will try to pay for all the food and is the one to always bring snacks on trips. He loves to please people and enjoys seeing others happy and well fed.
- Sometimes it's obvious that people only approach him for food, but Gaku will still willingly pay for them despite Riichi and Ikki's frustration. Relationships are very important to Gaku, and he wants to leave a good impression on everyone.
- He isn't very academical and struggled to catch up to UA's standards. He isn't very used to studying because of his background of skipping classes.
- He accidentally keeps cutting his mouth due to his sharp teeth.. That's actually where all his scars around his mouth came from; he had a habit of biting his lips out of nervousness when he was young. His gums often bleed as well which is why he sometimes spits blood (people get intimidated by this though).
- He sometimes carries a knife... to cut steaks and tough meat. You always gotta be prepared to eat!
- Almost everyone in school knows about him; Gaku is famously known for hanging out in the cafeteria and buying ridiculously large bulks of food.
- When nervous, he chews on pencils/pen, but he ends up eating bits of them...
