U.A.'s other freshman hero class.
- Friendly Rival: While Monoma takes it pretty seriously, the rest of the class and 1-A get along pretty well, the two classes even get paired up for training on occasion.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: The whole class passes the License exam, but we don't get to see it because U.A. sent the two classes to seperate testing facilities.
- Out of Focus: Compared to class 1-A, the characters of class 1-B haven't had much development.
Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu — Real Steel
- Voiced by: Kōji Okino (Japanese), David Wald (English)
- A Day in the Limelight: During the School Trip Arc, he got to defeat Mustard alongside Itsuka.
- Chrome Champion: When using his Quirk.
- Defeat Means Friendship: Becomes Kirishima's friend right after losing to him in an arm wrestling match.Juuzou Honenuki: Guess yesterday's nemesis is today's comrade.
- Extra-ore-dinary: His Quirk can turn his body into steel.
- Face of a Thug: He looks intimidating, but is just as heroic as the students of Class 1-A.
- Friendly Rivalry: With Kirishima.
- Heroic R.R.O.D.: Suffers metal fatigue if he hasn't eaten enough iron.
- Hot-Blooded: He's rather loud and hot-headed, especially when it comes to the students of Class 1-A, who he views as "obnoxious brats".
- Instant Armor: His Quirk turns his body into steel.
- Jack-of-All-Stats: His databook stats are the same as Kirishima's.
- Personality Powers: His Steel powers complement his adamant personality well.
- Punny Name: His name is composed of four characters with the same pronunciation, the first of which is the character for "iron".
- Repetitive Name: Tetsutetsu is both his first and last name.
- Running Gag: All the similarities he has to Kirishima. Examples include Quirk, birthday, stats, internship, costume...
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: During the Camping Trip Arc, he ignored orders from the teachers to stay out of battle because he wanted to help his classmates.
- Super Toughness: Being made of steel, this is only natural; but his endurance is limited. It's implied that repeated impacts (such as bullets) to a targeted area will eventually punch through to soft tissue.
- Shout-Out: To the movie of the same name.
- Unusual Eyebrows: His eyebrows apparently circle around his eyes.
Ibara Shiozaki — Maria
- Voiced by: Miho Masaka (Japanese), Bryn Apprill (English)
- Fight Unscene: Gets taken out of the tournament by Iida, who describes how their fight went down. Basically, he just zipped around her before she had a chance to grab him with her vines and threw her out of the ring.
- Green Thumb: Her Quirk is "Vines", which manifests as her hair being made of thorny vines. She can control it at will, extend it to restrain enemies, and detach it to form walls of vines.
- Looks Like Jesus: Due to her thorny vine hair and crown. Rare female example.
- Meaningful Name: "Ibara" means "thorns."
- Personality Powers: Unsurprisingly, the girl with a crown of thorns turns out to be a religious Christian, in Japan no less.
- Plant Hair: Her hair is a vegetable, but the rest of her appears to be normal. It also only needs water and sun to grow back, so she doesn't need to worry about getting bald.
- Prehensile Hair: She can move and even extend her thorned hair at will.
- Token Religious Teammate: She appears to be a devout Christian, which in a Japanese setting, is rather rare.
A recommended student from Class 1-B. Has a skeletal face.
- The Ace: Implied for now. He is a recommended student not unlike Todoroki and Yaoyorozu and he also managed a high placement in the Sports Festival race, but he has not shown his abilities much.
- Dishing Out Dirt: His Quirk allows him to create quicksands.
- Hidden Depths: According to his profile he likes massages (giving and receiving them).
- Nightmare Face: His face is very skeletal in appearance, having sunken eyes, a flat nose and lacking lips.
A bandana-wearing student from Class 1-B. His Quirk is "Weld".
- Merging Machine: Well, Merging Person. He can fuse objects down to the molecular level by simply touching them both at the same time.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He has less than ten panels of screentime, but being able to merge a tracking device onto a Noumu managed to give Midoriya and others a chance to rescue Bakugou in the following arc.
Neito Monoma — Phantom Thief
- Voiced by: Kōhei Amasaki (Japanese), Austin Tindle (English)
- Arc Villain: Could be seen as this during the School Festival Arc (alongside Todoroki, but this one was nowhere as mean), although he was eliminated before the proper Tournament Arc.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Easily saw through Uraraka's strategy to beat Bakugou.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: After seeing the fame and praise Class 1-A got for surviving a villain attack, he arrogantly states that Class 1-B could have handled such an event with no problem. Cue the School Trip Arc, where both 1-A and 1-B are present. Most members of Class 1-B end up in a coma, with only a few of them such as Tetsutetsu and Kendou being able to fight back. Luckily for him, he ends up not being part of the fight due to taking remedial classes, funnily enough.
- Boisterous Weakling: Neito is always the quickest of 1-B students to try and trash talk Class 1-A. For all his needling though, Neito is the only one of the 1-B students to fail the End of Term exam.
- Characterization Marches On: When he was first introduced he was treated as a legit threat to Class 1-A in the School Tournament. Afterward, though, he was downgraded to a Smug Snake Unknown Rival comic relief who continued berating Class 1-A despite clearly not being better than them.
- A Day in the Limelight: He had some major screentime during the Cavalry Battle of the Sports Festival Arc.
- The Gadfly: In order to prove his superiority over Class 1-A, he does like to mess with some of its members or rile them up in order to get some reaction out of them. In the light novel when the classes were deciding on having a specific food, he specifically picks on Bakugou for this purpose.
- Hour of Power: The copied Quirks only last for around 5 minutes.
- Ironic Echo: Of a sorts, he tells Bakugou, after he steals his headband in the Human Cavalry event, that he was the one who openly challenged his whole classmates that he'll be the best of them. So it's his own fault if he can't deliver on that promise.
- Quickly turns into Tempting Fate not shortly after, however, as Bakugou focuses on him for the remainder of the match. He then not only reclaims his own headband, but steals all of Monoma's headbands that he had collected through the event - thereby knocking him out of the running in the festival.
- It's Personal: He takes Bakugou's speech a bit too personal and feels Class 1-A are being too cocky. He decides to try and knock them down a peg, starting with Bakugou himself.
- Jerkass: Gives Bakugou a run for his money on biggest student jerk of the series.
- Mr. Exposition: Is the one to explain Uraraka's strategy during her fight against Bakugou when she reveals it. He also scoffs at the heroes who booed at the fight because sitting in the audience should have allowed them to see it firsthand.
- Meaningful Name: His name comes from "monomane", the Japanese word for "mimicry".
- Personality Powers: He's shown to be not just resentful, but jealous of Class 1-A because of how they keep proving themselves in the field. His power is to copy the quirks of others and use them, so he takes what others have that he doesn't and uses it against them.
- Phantom Thief: At least, this is his hero alias, and he does look the part.
- Power Copying: His Quirk.
Itsuka Kendou — Battle Fist
- Voiced by: Saki Ogasawara (Japanese), Jad Saxton (English)
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Her analytical skills end up being shown during the School Trip Arc, helping Tetsutetsu in taking down a villain.
- Class Representative: Of Class B.
- Cool Big Sis: Described as this for Class B.
- A Day in the Limelight: During the School Trip Arc, she got to defeat Mustard alongside Tetsutetsu.
- Dope Slap: What she usually does to Monoma when he goes too far with his Class 1-A antagonism.
- Expy: Of Kamala Khan, AKA Ms. Marvel, due to having similar powers and costume.
- Nice Girl: She calls Monoma out on his asshole nature and when given the opportunity to be given a free pass to the One-on-One fights she instead gives the opportunity to others she thinks are more deserving.
- In the entrance exam she had the third highest rescue points behind Uraraka and Midoriya
- Size Shifter: She can change the size of her hands.
- Super Strength: Falls into Required Secondary Powers because without it she probably wouldn't even be able to lift her hands when they grow let alone carry fully grown people with little effort.
A student from Class 1-B who assists Monoma in the Human Cavalry battle. His Quirk is "Solid Air", which allows him to create barriers made of solidified air.
Another student from class B, she is upbeat and sweet, having two huge horns on top of her head.
- Funny Foreigner: An exaggerated upbeat girl of north-American origin that transferred to UA.
- Horned Humanoid: Has two huge horns atop of her head.
- Fauns and Satyrs: Related to the above as she has the hooves, a short goat-like tail, and a set of horns. Unlike most cases she covers most of her legs (though you can still see they are jointed differently) and like her name implies her hooves are more like that of a horse.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Similar to Tsuyu's case; she is far more cartoony than the rest of her class, with her face looking a lot like a a Moomin's.
