Ando Masahashi is an office worker at Yamagato Industries and Hiro Nakamura's best friend. Ando artificially gained the power to amplify other super human's powers.


Ando is Hiro Nakamura's best friend and work colleague. He works in a programing company owned by Hiro's father, Kaito. When we are first introduced to Ando he is watching Niki Sanders strip on her webcam. When Hiro tells Ando about his discovered power after making a tokyo train late 14 seconds, Ando doesn't believe a word of it. Later Hiro persuades him when he brings back the ninth wonders comic book from the future in New York City. Ando then follows Hiro around like best friend helping in any way he can. He is a very humble respectable character that doesn't get jealous and is a true friend. Hiro decides that he must follow the signs of the ninth wonders comic book in order to get to his destiny. Ando goes with him as a sidekick which he doesn't like to mention. He helps Hiro steal the sword which will help Hiro control his powers. The next place they go to is Texas where they meet a sweet cafe worker. In the third season he gained super powers via Petrelli's formula to retrieve Hiro from the past. So far, his power seems to amplify the powers of others, such as enabling Daphne to travel faster than the speed of light and into the past. Although, it has been shown in the future that he is able to project his 'sparks' in the form of red lightning as some sort of energy. This has later been proved in Shades of Gray as he projected red lightning to hit one of the agents. He is not fully in control of shooting the lightning. It appears he any be able to unlock doors with only passwords to enter as he saved Hiro in Close to You.
