The Destroyers (屠リ人, Hofuribito) are a faction within the White-Clads that specialise in ability user's assassinations.[1]


They each wear the standard veil of the White-Clad but with a Holy Sol Temple cross shaped like a target. Like the other groups in the organization, the Destroyers wear individual outfits.


The Destroyers were a division of the White Clad created for the sole purpose of assassinating pyrokinetics or fighters that opposed the group's goals. At some point in the past, the White-Clad known as Assault was a member of the Destroyers, before being reassigned to the Knights of the Ashen Flame division for unknown reasons.

Gold used her ignition ability to murder Sōichirō Hague in his office. They believed that his Stigma and experience of the Adolla was both a hinderance and a threat to their plans. Yona sent another assassin to target and kill Konro, but the Destroyer was defeated by Konro and their body was disposed of.

Gold would later arrange to use a Bug on Captain Akitaru Ōbi while her peers ready themselves for Company 8 response to his arrest.

Upon the arrival of Company 8 at Fuchū Prison to rescue their captain, Gold is the first Destroyer to confront them. After a drawn-out fight with Company 8, she is ultimately defeated. Her colleague, Stream, is the next one to challenge Company 8, but he too is defeated in combat. Shortly after the defeat of Stream, Dragon, the final remaining Destroyer, finally arrives at the scene. He proves much more successful at combating Company 8 than his comrades, and would have massacred them all were it not for the timely intervention of a certain mask-wearing proto-nationalist.


  • Volume 23 Translation Notes specifies the difference between Benimaru and The Destroyers in their written connotations. Benimaru is the hakai-ō, which literally means "destroyer king" or "king of destruction," with a specific connotation of breaking things. In other words, he's the sort of destroyer who goes around busting up people and things. The Evangelist's Destroyers are hofuribito, meaning literally "person(s) who destroy," with a connotation of defeat, death and obliteration.
