The My Hero Academia manga and anime series features a vast world with an extensive cast of characters created by Kōhei Horikoshi. The series takes place in a fictional world where, currently, more than 80% of the Earth's population possesses some form of superhuman ability, commonly referred to as "Quirks;” the appearance of these abilities has given rise to not only professional heroes, but also the threat of villains.

U.A. High School[edit]

The main setting of the series, U.A. High School (雄英高校, Yūei Kōkō) is considered by many the top hero school in Japan.

Class 1-A students[edit]

Deku

(緑谷 出久, Midoria Izuku) / Deku (デク, Deku)

Voiced by: Daiki Yamashita[1] (Anime and Vomic) (Japanese); Justin Briner[2] (English)
Nicknamed Deku (デク) by his childhood friend Katsuki , based from the Japanese term meaning "good-for-nothing." The English dub makes it an abbreviation for "Defenseless IzuUku". Izuku is a quirkless boy who is extremely knowledgeable about heroes and dreams to become one like his idol All Might. Upon meeting the hero while attempting to save Bakugō from a villain, Izuku is chosen by All Might to become the ninth holder of One For All (ワン・フォー・オール, Wan Fō Ōru), a Quirk that stockpiles the user's physical strength and unleashes it as a powerful burst; the quirk can also be passed from one person to another. Its existence is kept secret to prevent chaos from the peoples. During his internship with Gran Torino, Izuku learns to use five percent of his power throughout his whole body, which he called "Full Cowling." This minimizes the damage to his body, allowing him to control his Quirk to a greater degree. Later, while at training camp, the class is attacked by villains. This causes Izuku to go beyond his limits, fracturing his arms. After being told that if this were to happen two or three more times, he would lose functionality in his arms. For this reason, he decided that his costume would need some improvements so that it would be easier to punch and not injure himself as easily until he got used to One For All. Realizing that he has legs (oof!) and has been mimicking All Might in using One For All (double oof!), Izuku began using his legs as well as his arms, giving birth of his "Shoot-Style" fighting. As he gradually reaches 20% of his power, Izuku begins to develop a mental connection to the previous users of One For All through the Quirk. Izuku compensates for his physical limitations with a keen sense of strategy (having written at least thirteen notebooks on other heroes, including his peers) and an instinctive desire to save people. While he initially disliked being called "Deku", Izuku is inspired by Ochaco's assumption that it was based on the word dekiru (できる, to be able to/to be capable of) to embrace the moniker and ultimately adopts it as his Hero name. Deku is the only One For All user who can interact with the ghosts of previous users, who occasionally advise him. It is revealed to Deku that he will eventually manifest six extra Quirks which had originally belonged to his predecessors, giving him a total of seven Quirks. So far, Izuku has unlocked a second Quirk named Black Whip (黒鞭 (クロムチ), Kuro Muchi, Black Whip); it can create and control dark energy in the form of strong tentacles.
Katsuki Bakugo (爆豪 勝己, Bakugō Katsuki) / Kacchan (かっちゃん, Katchan)
Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto (Anime),[3] Yūichirō Umehara (Vomic) (Japanese); Clifford Chapin[2] (English)
Katsuki is Izuku's childhood friend and classmate in Class 1-A, whom Izuku calls Kacchan (かっちゃん). He possesses the Quirk Explosion (爆破, Bakuha), his sweat having nitroglycerin-like properties at which he can detonate at will. Having developed a powerful Quirk at a young age, he grew egotistical from being praised. He respected Izuku, despite Izuku being Quirkless. His egotistical personality only grew as he got older as he became very skilled with his Quirk along with his top-notch combat skills. This caused him to become anti-social, aggressive and prideful. In the beginning of the series, though many make comments to him that he acts more like a villain, Katsuki has aspirations to become a famous hero like All Might while antagonizing Izuku not to enroll in U.A. It is later revealed that he wishes to be a famous hero in order to prove that he is the best. Despite his seemingly rebellious personality, Katsuki is actually very smart and analytical, having the third best grades in the class. This can be seen as he is the only one to deduce Izuku's quirk. He originally assumed Izuku was hiding his Quirk from him and he later deduces One For All's existence and promises to keep it to himself while vowing to surpass Izuku.
Ochaco Uraraka (麗日 お茶子, Uraraka Ochaco) / Uravity (ウラビティ, Urabiti)
Voiced by: Ayane Sakura[3] (Japanese); Luci Christian[2] (English)
Ochaco is Izuku's best friend and classmate in Class 1-A. She has pads on her fingertips which activate her Quirk, Zero Gravity (無重力(ゼログラビティ), Zero Gurabiti), which allows her to make any object she touches with all five of her fingers on one hand to become weightless. She becomes nauseous if she uses the ability too much. Similar to Katsuki, she also refers Izuku as "Deku". However, unlike the former, she calls him by his nickname out of affection, commenting that "Deku" never gives up, and eventually calls him Deku-kun (デクくん), a move that prompts him to accept the name. Coming from a lower-middle class family of construction workers, Ochaco aspires to become a hero to give her parents financial security despite her father's attempts to encourage to find her own path. Ochaco originally meets Izuku prior to U.A.'s entrance exam, after she stops him from falling over when he tripped on his own foot. Izuku eventually returns the favor by saving her during the entrance exam. Several others later deduce that Ochaco has feelings for Izuku given her anxiety when asked about it. She ultimately decides to put these potential feelings of love aside for the time being, until her feelings later resurface when Izuku loses control of One for All during a Joint training battle against 1-B.
Tenya Iida (飯田 天哉, Īda Ten'ya) / Ingenium (インゲニウム, Ingeniumu)
Voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa[3] (Japanese); J. Michael Tatum[2] (English)
Tenya is Izuku and Ochako’s best friend. The president of Class 1-A, a very studious boy who seems serious and scary at first glance, is just honest and strict regarding qualifications to become a hero. During the entrance exam, he repeatedly chastises Izuku for what he perceives as disrespect. However, after he witnesses Izuku selflessly save Ochako during the exam, he comes to the (false) belief that Izuku deduced the true nature of the exam. Concluding Izuku is better than him, Tenya immediately apologizes for his behavior and befriends him, despite Izuku's repeated attempts to tell him the truth. Tenya eventually becomes the class president after Izuku, who won by vote but was too nervous to hold the position, forfeited it to him. Tenya's Quirk is Engine (エンジン, Enjin), which gives him super-speed via jet engines in his legs. He comes from a well-known family who have been professional heroes for generations. His older brother Tensei, who is the original bearer of the name Ingenium, inspired him to become a hero that will make his family proud. Originally using his own name as his Hero name, Tenya inherits his brother's name after Tensei is crippled by Stain and forced to retire.
Shouto Todoroki (轟 焦凍, Todoroki Shōto) / Shouto (ショート, Shouto)
Voiced by: Yūki Kaji[4] (Japanese); David Matranga[2] (English)
A student in Class 1-A. His Quirk is Half-Cold Half-Hot (半冷半燃, Hanrei Hannen), which allows him to generate fire from the left side of his body and ice from the right, though overuse of one side causes him to overheat or become frostbitten respectively. He is considered the strongest student in the class and was admitted to U.A. on recommendation. He is the youngest child of Endeavor, the second top hero after All Might. His father was never able to surpass All Might, therefore putting his efforts into creating a child that eventually could. This lead to him marrying Rei, a woman from a family with a powerful ice quirk. After Todoroki's older siblings were deemed "unworthy" by their father, Shoto was born and considered his masterpiece. Shoto was harshly trained from an early age which his mother Rei tried to protect him from, but only lead to her abuse and eventual insanity. Rei soon began to resent her son for his resemblance to his father, leading to her accidentally burning his left side (which shared Endeavor's coloring) with scalding water. She was institutionalized for her actions. Around this time, he focused only on rejecting his father and eventually forgot his mother's kind words that inspired him to be a hero. Shouto intended to become a top hero using only his mother's Quirk of cryokinesis instead of his father's pyrokinesis as his way to disavow the latter. During his fight with Izuku, Shouto finally remembers why he wants to be a hero and accepts his Fire Quirk as his own instead of his father's. Afterward, he decided to overcome his inner struggle by meeting his mother, in the hope that they can get through their past together. Shouto uses his own name as his Hero name. Shouto has one sister and two brothers, his sisters name is Fuyumi and his brothers names are Natsuo and Touya his brother Touya is the oldest followd by Fuyumi then Natsuo and clearly Shouto.
Tsuyu Asui (蛙吹 梅雨, Asui Tsuyu) / Froppy (梅雨入りヒーロー フロッピー, Tsuyuiri Hīrō Furoppi, Rainy Season Hero "Froppy")
Voiced by: Aoi Yūki[3] (Japanese); Monica Rial[2] (English)
A girl in Class 1-A. Her Quirk Frog (, Kaeru) gives her a frog-like appearance and abilities such as superior swimming, a tongue that can stretch 20 meters, sticking to and climbing vertical walls, superhuman leaping, natural camouflage, and numbing venom. She is susceptible to cold and will go into hibernation if her body temperature falls too low. She has a reserved and informed personality, but is also insightful, intelligent, and ready to protect the innocent. She is also sharp, being the first one in the class to notice the similarity between Izuku and All Might's Quirk, which briefly panicked Izuku. On the other hand, she is honest to a fault, outright admitting that she always speaks her mind, no matter how hurtful it may be. She also would rather be called “Tsuyu” instead of “Asui.”
Minoru Mineta (峰田 実, Mineta Minoru) / Grape Juice (モギタテヒーロー グレープジュース, Mogitate Hīrō Gurēpu Jūsu, Fresh-Picked Hero "Grape Juice")
Voiced by: Ryō Hirohashi[3] (Japanese); Brina Palencia[2] (English)
The shortest student in Class 1-A, he is a perverted boy who frequently makes lewd remarks and off-color jokes, especially regarding the female students in his class which often annoys them and Eraser Head. Mineta possesses Pop Off (もぎもぎ, Mogimogi), a Quirk that grows many small, highly adhesive balls on his head that he can remove and use as weapons. Mineta is immune to their adhesive effects and able to trampoline on them as they are also extremely elastic. However, picking off too many at a time can cause his scalp to bleed.

Voiced by: Toshiki Masuda[5] (Japanese); Justin Cook[2] (English)
A student in Class 1-A whose Quirk Hardening (硬化, Kōka) allows him to harden his body to become nearly invulnerable. His Hero name is Red Riot, inspired by another hero, Crimson Riot, whom he admires. Crimson Riot was the one who inspired Eijirō to pursue the ideal of manliness, which he defines as "a life lived without regret." Eijirō struggles with his sense of self-worth, which was exacerbated during a incident in middle school, when his then schoolmate (and future UA classmate) Mina Ashido chased away a giant villain threatening her friends while he stood paralyzed with fear. Since starting high school, he has been dissimulating his self-esteem issues by dyeing his black hair red and spiking it up, and by adopting a boisterous attitude. He made a point to befriend Katsuki as he admires his strength, confidence and determination. The two of them started building a friendship during the Sports Festival.
Momo Yaoyorozu (八百万 百, Yaoyorozu Momo) / Creati (万物ヒーロー クリエイティ, Banbutsu Hīrō Kurieiti, Everything Hero "Creati")

She creates the objects from the lipids stored in her body and must refuel by eating a large amount of food to make more objects. Being incredibly intelligent, she is one of the top students in the class, having entered U.A. by recommendation, although she has self-esteem issues due to a feeling of never being able to prove her own worth.

A very serious-minded student in 1-A whose head resembles that of a crow. His Quirk, Dark Shadow (黒影(ダークシャドウ), Dāku Shadō), gives him control of a sentient shadow that has a variety of uses, from attacking to defense to support. Within a dark environment, his shadow becomes more powerful but harder to control; in a brightly lit environment, better control comes at a loss of power.
Denki Kaminari (上鳴 電気, Kaminari Denki) / Chargebolt (スタンガンヒーロー チャージズマ, Sutan Gan Hīrō Chājizuma, Stun Gun Hero "Chargebolt")
Voiced by: Tasuku Hatanaka[5] (Japanese); Kyle Phillips[2] (English)
A student in Class 1-A. A dim-witted playboy whose Quirk Electrification (帯電, Taiden) allows him to absorb and emit electricity. While this Quirk is powerful in its nature, overuse causes his synapses to short circuit, causing him to walk around in a stupor giving thumbs-up and saying "Yaay".

Yūga is a boy in Class 1-A, supposedly born in France. He is always seen smiling and is incredibly vain and eccentric, often talking about how much luster he has, much to others' chagrin. His Quirk is Navel Laser (ネビルレーザー, Nebiru Rēzā), which allows him to fire a laser blast from his belly button, but he cannot shoot it for longer than a few seconds or it will result in bowel problems. He wears a special belt when using his power to help regulate the laser, while his hero costume allows him to fire the laser from different parts of his body. Throughout the first three seasons of the anime he has been noted to be very scared of confrontations with villains or any adversary he deems stronger than him, but has had occasional fits of courage albeit in a scared manner.

An optimistic and easily excitable student in Class 1-A with pink hair and lilac skin.

Voiced by: Atsushi Imaruoka (Japanese); Dallas Reid (English)

Third Year students[edit]

Mirio Togata (通形 ミリオ, Tōgata Mirio) / Lemillion (ルミリオン, Rumirion)
Voiced by: Tarusuke Shingaki[7] (Japanese); Ricco Fajardo[8] (English)

His Quirk Permeation (透過, Tōka) allows him to phase his body through anything solid or liquid, including the ground itself, allowing him to travel through walls and avoid enemy attacks. However, this only applies to his body, leaving him nude when he uses it. To prevent that during action, his hero uniform is made with fibers taken from his hair.

Voiced by: Yūto Uemura[7] (Japanese); Aaron Dismuke[8] (English)

Despite that, he still can show his conviction when duty calls.

Initially born Quirkless like Izuku, Toshinori is the eighth holder of the One For All Quirk, which he inherited from his mentor Nana Shimura while attending U.A. High School. He was trained by Gran Torino before traveling abroad to temporarily keep out of sight of All For One after the villain murdered Nana. Toshinori is able to use One For All to assume a muscular appearance akin to American comic book superheroes. Toshinori made a name for himself as All Might, with his Quirk known only to the U.A. principal Nezu, the U.A. school nurse Recovery Girl, his friend in the police force Detective Tsukauchi, and a select few Pro Heroes. Five years before the series, All Might managed to defeat All For One in a battle that severely damaged his body, limiting his use of One For All to three hours. This forces All Might to find a worthy successor to the Quirk, choosing Izuku upon seeing his bravery.

She tends to make provocative poses to attract the media's attention. However, she does seem to take her new job seriously, as shown by when she grew so that she could block Katsuki from Mr. Compress’s attack. Despite this act of selflessness, she is still shown to be relatively self-centered, as she was disappointed at becoming the No. 23 Pro Hero in the country, despite having only been a Heroine for a couple of years.

Jin Bubaigawara (分倍河原 仁, Bubaigawara Jin) / Twice (トゥワイス, Tuwaisu)
Voiced by: Daichi Endō[22] (Japanese); Newton Pittman (English)
An average adult man with light spiked hair and a large scar on his forehead whose Quirk Double (二倍, Nibai) allows him to create two copies of anything at a time through touch, creating a perfect clone after memorizing his target's measurements and characteristics that would melt away if injured enough. Jin previously used his Quirk on himself for company due to being orphaned with no where to go after getting a criminal record, eventually using his power to commit robberies and gain infamy. But it backfired when Jin's clones rose up against him over leadership and they eventually kill each other, traumatizing him into never using his ability on himself again in fear that he is not the original. The ordeal also caused him to develop a dissociative identity disorder with a second explosive and lively personality, wearing his mask as a psychological deterrent to keep himself together. Jin eventually overcomes his trauma during the League's battle against the Meta Liberation Army, using his Quirk to its full country-conquering potential.

He also trusts his own judgment, kidnapping a second target beside the one he was assigned to. His Quirk Compress (コンプレス, Konpuresu) allows him to "compress" anything in a spherical area into a small marble without actually damaging it. If used on a person, it effectively entraps them, terminating the fight instantly and allowing him to abduct them easily.

Greatly admiring Stain to the point of copying his appearance and fighting style, Spinner also respected Stain's ideals enough to protect Izuku for being recognized by Stain as a hero. He used a makeshift sword made from several knives, daggers, hatchets and many other blades which were held together by chains and belts.

Voiced by: Go Inoue[25] (Japanese); Robert McCollum (English)[26]
Originally an aspiring hero student, Chizome fell into despair after realizing that more students were becoming heroes for money and fame, rather than doing good for the sake of doing good and dropped out to become a street speaker pushing for reform of the Hero system. The general apathy of the public only caused Chizome to fall deeper into darkness until he snapped and gave up on changing the world through peaceful means. He gave up on his dream of being a hero, and became a vigilante instead, under the alias Stendhal (スタンダール, Sutandāru), until becoming a professional hero killer under the name Hero Killer: Stain (ヒーロー殺ころし ステイン, Hīrō Goroshi Sutein), sparing only those he considered "true heroes", a list which currently consists solely of All Might and Izuku. After his arrest, Izuku admits that on some level he admires and understands Stain's passion and idealism, but disapproves of his methods. After he is defeated and imprisoned, a group of young villains inspired by a corrupted version of Stain's ideals begin appearing. His Quirk is Bloodcurdle (凝血, Gyōketsu), the ability to paralyze his opponent by ingesting even a small sample of their blood. The weakness to his Quirk is that there are time limit differences based on the blood type of his opponents (Type B is 8 minutes, others are shorter ranging from Types AB, A, and O).

He claims that his ultimate goal is to write his name in history. Prior to becoming a villain, Danjuro was a hero student who, despite his enthusiasm, was met with constant disappointment due to his grades and was eventually forced out of his school's hero program and into the normal curriculum after failing the Provisional License Exam four times in a row. He was then expelled after interfering with a rescue operation and was disowned by his parents due to the ensuing lawsuit leaving them in financial ruin. Despite all of this, Danjuro kept his head up and tried to make the best of things, until a chance encounter with an old classmate of his (who had since become a certified hero) caused him to discover that his classmate had completely forgotten him. With his ego in tatters, Danjuro finally cracked and became the flamboyant villain Gentle Criminal (ジェントル・クリミナル, Jentoru Kuriminaru) to ensure that he would never be forgotten or belittled ever again. During an attempt to infiltrate U.A. during the cultural festival, Gentle is stopped and defeated by Izuku, leading to his arrest. As he is taken into custody, Danjuro denies all involvement of La Brava in his crimes to protect her. His Quirk, Elasticity (弾性, Erasutishiti), allows him to bestow the property of elasticity to anything he touches, be it solid, liquid, or even thin air, using it to deflect attacks and surprise his opponents.
Manami Aiba (相場 愛美, Aiba Manami) / La Brava (ラブラバ, Raburaba)
Gentle's loyal fan and admirer, she records his acts of villainy and posts them online as part of his plan to gain fame. She was originally a young girl who became a shut in after being rejected and humiliated by a boy she liked. While browsing the internet, she came across one of Gentle's videos and came to admire him, finding the courage to leave her room through him. By the power of her Quirk, Love (ラブ, Rabu), she can boost the power of the person she loves most by declaring her love to that person. The more intense her love, the stronger the power transmitted to the target is. The ability's power increases further in crisis situations.

Through several tests and experiments, the Eight Precepts of Death were able to utilize the effects of this Quirk to target a person's "Quirk Factor," in order to create Quirk-destroying bullets. Because of her young age and inexperience, Eri is unable to properly control her ability, being able to activate it but unable to stop it.

She usually holds unauthorized concerts on high places, using her Quirk Leap (跳躍, Chōyaku), which allows her to jump several meters high; it also helps her evade capture by the police.
Oguro (雄黒) / "Takeshi Kuroiwa" (黒岩 武司, Kuroiwa Takeshi) / Knuckleduster (ナックルダスター, Nakkurudasutā)
A strong old man who is investigating the trafficking of a mysterious drug around town. His tenacity in battle makes others think he possesses a Quirk related to physical prowess, when he actually has no Quirk at all. He introduces himself as "Takeshi Kuroiwa" to civilians in Koichi's social circle, but this too is an alias. His mission is motivated by the search for his estranged daughter, Tamao, whose disappearance may be connected to the drug "Trigger".
