Main Character's Families
- Voiced by: Aya Kawakami (Japanese), Jessica Cavanagh (English)
Izuku's mom. Emotional and prone to outbursts of hysterical tears, Inko has raised her son mostly on her own while her husband is away and paying the bills. She is a caring worrywart who is both supportive and protective of her son. She also has a Quirk that allows her to draw nearby objects to her side.
- Adult Fear: Imagine what she is feeling, having to time after time get the news that her son is in the hospital with his limbs mangled and his bones broken. Or being told that he was taken to the police station because he was targeted by a villain. It comes to the point in which she asks Midoriya to leave after the Camping Trip Arc due to a very serious injury in his arms. It gets so bad that she eventually declines to allow him to continue attending U.A. because she fears for his safety and feels she can't trust the heroes.
- Birds of a Feather:
- According to All Might, she reminds him a lot of Nana, though he states that it's due a similar hairstyle, but their strong motherly presence in the comic to both Midoriya and All Might is comparable.
- She is also this for Izuku, they are both heavily emotional and kind people, with similar physical traits - color of the eyes, skin and hair - they share some comedic traits too, such as being both Ocular Gushers and making exaggerated faces of surprise.
- Doting Parent: Always supportive of Izuku.
- Formerly Fit: When Izuku was 4, she was thin. In the present, she is a bit chubby. That's because all her stress from parenting by herself caused her to put on weight.
- Glamorous Single Mother: Well, not exactly glamorous, but Izuku's home life (aside from the bullying and dream-crushing and the sobbing) had been pretty stable and happy despite the fact that his mom (who appears to have gained weight from the stress) appears to be single. He never mentions any money problems either, despite the fact that we've never seen his mom working (though it's probable that she has a day job). In fact, Izuku's dad hasn't been mentioned more than three times in the entire series!
- An omake reveals she is still married, and her husband works abroad, which is likely where the majority of her income comes from.
- Locked Out of the Loop: She doesn't know about All Might giving Izuku One-For-All, something he is shown to be a little guilty about as he often mention how he "hasn't even told mom" about it.
- Mind over Matter: Her Quirk lets her move small objects.
- My Greatest Failure: When it was first found out that Midoriya would never have a Quirk, and thus, could never be a hero, his greatest dream, Izuku had a breakdown, and instead of being supportive that Midoriya could still try, she too broke down, hugging him and crying while telling him how sorry she is. After Izuku gains admittance to UA, his mom tells him how sorry she is for acting that way and how now no matter what she will fully support him.
- Ocular Gushers: Chapter 38 shows her surrounded by a huge pile of tissues. Now we know where Izuku got it from.
- Parents as People: As much as she wants to support her son, she's only human. When Izuku discovers that he's Quirkless as a child, she doesn't realize (at least not at first) that all of her attempts at comforting are just making him feel worse, and later on she's very conflicted about whether she should allow him to continue pursuing his dream of being a hero in light of how dangerous it is.
- Reality Ensues: She received praise from fans who loved that she was a heavily realistic depiction of a mother in a shonen manga. Mothers usually are not mentioned or are dead in this genre, but Inko is shown as supportive of her son's dream, but also heavily worried about his well being while he is going in life-or-death situation.
Midoriya's father, who is yet to appear. He works abroad. He also has a Quirk: he breathes fire. Whether or not that pertains to his job is a mystery.
- All There in the Manual: The only way to know his name is by reading other sources of information.
- Disappeared Dad: He is only mentioned once by his wife as a guy with a fire-breathing Quirk. In the character book it's revealed his name is Hisashi, which is a pun of "hisahiburi" which translates as "it's been a while" and is something you say to people you have not seen in a long time. It's revealed in his wife's character bio that he is still alive, he just works abroad.
- The Ghost: Only ever mentioned in the beginning of the manga and never again. Yet.
- Parental Neglect: Possibly, during the time he hasn't appeared, his son's life changed drastically and became increasingly more dangerous, even leading to him going to the hospital several times. We also don't see him when Izuku was a kid, nor Izuku seem bothered by his lack of presence or talk about him, so it's possible he never was very much present in his son's life anyway. He also wasn't there to support his son when Izuku learned he was Quirkless and reassure him when his mother inadvertently made his heartbreak even worse.
- Playing with Fire: His Quirk is to breathe fire.
- Punny Name: "Hisashi" comes from the japanese term "Hisashiburi", something said to people you haven't seen for a long time, reflecting his situation in the manga.
Voiced by: Michiko Neya (Japanese), Amber Lee Connors (English)Shouto's mother and Endeavor's (Enji's) wife. Endeavor decided to marry her because of her ice quirk, which he thought would allow them to produce an child with a quirk powerful enough to surpass All Might, which he eventually got in Shouto. Her treatment in the marriage was not pleasant, as she constanly suffered abuse from her husband when she tried to protect Shouto, which eventually drove her to the point where she disfigured Shouto's face because as he grew up he looked more and more like Enji. After the incident, she was put in a mental hospital, where she has been currently staying.Todoroki eventually reconciled with her and the two are slowly patching things up, but her relationship with her husband remains certifiably trashed.
- An Ice Person: Her Quirk and the reason Endeavor had any sort of interest in her.
- Arranged Marriage: How she became Endeavor's wife. She was not a willing party.
- Broken Bird: Forced to marry a horrible person like Endeavor due to his power and wealth and then have about four children so Endeavor could get his perfect successor, whereupon she was forced to defend her son from his abusive training regimen. When her sanity broke, resulting in Shoto's scarring, Endeavor chucked her into a mental institution.
- Moment of Weakness: Her injuring of Todoroki, as it occurred immediately after she had been talking about how much the stress of her situation was getting to her.
- Nightmare Face: That absolutely disturbed look of fear and hate she gave to Shouto the day she burnt him. You'll notice up until then that her eyes are deliberately hidden in flashbacks to make her feel like more of a figment of the past that Shouto no longer has contact with, but it's actually done more so to effectively lead up to the moment when she snapped and attacked her son. When we see her eyes for the first time, they are not soft and motherly at all- they're psychotic. Now that her sanity is on the mend, though, she's got gentle and loving eyes once more.
- No Name Given: After all this time, her name was never mentioned.
- Sanity Slippage: When her children started growing and looking more like Endeavor, she succumbed to the stress and had to be sent to a mental hospital after injuring Todoroki with boiling water. Endeavor had her committed to a mental institution without even a hint of regret.
- Tears of Remorse: She apologized through tears to Shouto as they spoke in her room at the clinic.
Voiced by: Kate Oxley (English)Shouto's older sister. She's got a background in education and is one of the few people who has managed to keep relative order in the Todoroki household, but she expresses dismay over the parental rift caused by Enji's spartan personality and worries about Shouto's well-being.
- Meganekko: She wears glasses.
- Parental Substitute: Implied to be the one taking care of Shouto considering that he has a mother in the hospital and his father... well, it's really better he is not around, anyway. Because from what we've seen from that one time he was sulking around the house after All Might had to retire, he's an expert at tearing up the house and setting parts of it on fire, and Fuyumi was seriously considering sending Shouto away from there while Enji was going medieval on the place.
- Technicolor Hair: Her hair is mostly the color of her mother's save for some flecks of red from her father's side. This shows that she got an uneven inheritance of genes from both parents and that got her off the hook that unfortunately befell Shouto later down the line.
Masaru and Mitsuki Bakugou
Bakugou's parents. Masaru is his father and Mitsuki is his mother.
- Abusive Parents: Played for laughs and downplayed, Katsuki and his mom are prone to get into screaming matches and she often punches him on the top of the head when he gets too full of himself, but they don't seem actually abusive.
- Distaff Counterpart: As far as looks and personality go, Mitsuki is a female Bakugou. That said, she is Older and Wiser enough to call out her son for being an ass.
- Early-Bird Cameo: At the very end of the Sports Festival arc, Mitsuki is first heard yelling at Katsuki from another room inside their house... for yelling just after waking up, because he's working out his frustrations after his disappoining fight with Todoroki by killing the bacteria on his teeth.
- Foil: Katsuki's mom to Inko. Both are Birds of a Feather with their sons, but while Inko is more loving and caring, Katsuki's mom is more crude and prone to screaming. The fact that their sons' behaviors are completely opposites definitely plays a part on how they behave with them.
- Good Counterpart: Mitsuki to Bakugou. She has all the traits he has, both physical and in personality , however, she is Older and Wiser than him, and if she ever had any angry issues she is over them now, making her the socially apt version of her son.
- Older and Wiser: Despite her fiery personality, she's able to see that her son is being an asshole, and willing to call him out on it.
- Opposites Attract: His mother is as explosive as Bakugou, but his father is a very level headed Only Sane Man.
- Parental Neglect: Downplayed, his mother understands they should have done more so Katsuki wouldn't ever get as egocentric as he ended up being, but they don't seem like bad parents and she is actually regretful of it.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Mitsuki has an explosive temper that matches her sonís (although it only ever seems to be directed toward Bakugou anyway), while Masaru is rather passive and usually tries to be the peacekeeper.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Katsuki and his mom look exactly the same.
A newscaster. His name is revealed in Volume 7. His Quirk is "Big Horn".
- All There in the Manual: He is given a name and a brief backstory in Volume 7.
- Base-Breaking Character: In universe, he became this after cutting one of his horns off. While there is a group of viewers that praise him for putting his job over his Quirk, there is another group that derides him for seemingly denying his own Quirk, thus "promoting Quirk discrimination".
- Horned Humanoid: Thanks to his Quirk.
Mandalay's young nephew. His parents were heroes who were killed in the line of duty. He possesses a Quirk like theirs that lets him generate water.
- Expy: Of Inari. He's a kid who wears a Cool Hat who talks down to the protagonist for his heroic ideals because said ideals got his father (and in Kouta's case, his mother too) killed.
- Freudian Excuse: Hates superheroism because it cost his parents their lives, and everybody around him would go on about how it was an honorable way for them to die.
- Groin Attack: When Deku tried to introduce himself, Kouta responded by punching him straight in the family jewels.
- Making a Splash: As both his parents had water-based Quirks, he gets this by default.
- Must Make Amends: He sends a letter to Midoriya, thanking for saving him and apologizing for his groin attack. He also asks him to heal soon so he can apologize properly.
- Tears of Fear: The second he lays eyes on Muscular for the first time after the villain sheds his cloak and mask to fight, Kouta realizes this is the monster who murdered his mom and dad and understandably falls apart at the realization he's now face to face with the person who took everything from him and how horrible and scary this person is. He's so distraught that all he can do is cry and scream in panic.
- Troubled Child: Very surly, and talks like someone much older than he actually is as a coping mechanism for his grief.
A young girl who Chisaki claims is his daughter. She is currently being held by the Hassaikai, as her quirk is central to their plans.
- Abusive Parent: If what Chisaki says is true, then she is pretty much being tortured by her own father.
- Broken Bird: She is a near catatonic state when she finally meets Midoriya out of being used to make drugs.
- Heroic Sacrifice: A non deadly one, but Eri decided to go away with Chisaki instead of being saved by Mirio and Midoriya because she could tell the two would most likely die in a fight between them.
- Hope Spot: She finally manages to escape wherever she was being held captive and found heroes willing to rescue her, but to guarantee their survival, she is willing to go back to that place with Chisaki.
- Horned Humanoid: Sports a small horn on one side of her head.
- Power Nullifier: She is being used to create anti quirk bullets. Unlike Aizawa, the bullets attacks the quirk itself instead of just halting the use of one.
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: Due to her situation, she is the center piece of a huge drug dealing operation, which uses her cells as prime matter to synthesize a drug that nullifies quirks for a given period, but it's implied the drugs are being developed to nullify a person's quirk forever.
