No-Face is fascinated with Chihiro and instantly attempts to draw closer to her. He slowly begins to mimic the people in the Bathhouse as a way of gaining her affection. However, the workers are extremely rude and greedy, the opposite of Chihiro. His obsession with her only grows stronger as the movie progresses, which leads him to make some unwise decisions. Absorbing the personalities of others at the Bathhouse has led to No-Face making him arrogant, loud and rude to everyone around him, including Chihiro. After he leaves the Bathhouse with her, he begins to calm down and react to Chihiro more normally.

About No-Face

No-Face is a lonely and mysterious spirit from the movie Spirited Away, a fantastical story about trying to get back home. He’s somewhat transparent and doesn’t seem to have an actual body. He becomes obsessed with the protagonist, Chihiro, and seeks to get her attention. He believes the best way to do this is by spending time at the Bathhouse where she works and mimick the personalities of the workers. This turns into a mistake as everyone is selfish, arrogant, and greedy. The more time he spends there, the less Chihiro likes him.

No-Face has several unique abilities. He’s capable of mimicry, alchemy, and absorption. He can absorb creatures to become them, transform dirt into gold, and eat nearly anything. Throughout most of the movie, No-Face uses these skills to become closer to Chihiro. But, by the end of the movie, he finds a new home with Zeniba, a kind witch who allows him to become an apprentice.
