Once a member of the "Generation of Miracles," Midorima now serves as the shooting guard of Shūtoku High's basketball team. With his great height and unwavering calm, his skill is a super-accurate shot that can be taken from anywhere on court; as long as his stance and form is unaltered, his shots are said to never miss. With the range of his arm expanding across the entire court, Midorima allows himself and his team to conserve energy during a game by shooting from their side of the court, immediately ready to mount a defense. Midorima is so dedicated to basketball that he tapes his fingers when not playing, presumably to protect them for game time. Beyond this, Midorima believes in the absolute nature of fate, so he frequently checks the horoscope and follows its predictions and recommendations to the letter.
