    Yuuga Aoyama — Can't Stop Twinkling 
Voiced by: Kosuke Kuwano (Japanese), Joel McDonald (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aoyama.png

A vain, eccentric young man Midoriya first meets during U.A's entrance exam. He thinks very highly of his Quirk, "Navel Laser", which allows him to fire laser beams from his belly button.
  • Attention Whore: After the battle against the Villain Alliance, he made a big deal about the mystery of his whereabouts during the incident (no one actually seemed to care).
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He mostly provides comic relief and his Quirk is very ridiculous-looking, but the ability to fire laser beams still makes him pretty powerful. He also has moments showing surprising awareness.
  • Big Damn Heroes: After spending most of the School Trip Arc hiding in fear, he delivers an attack that saves Tokoyami.
  • Bishie Sparkle: So much that even his beams have those.
  • Bishōnen: Parodied. He's actually closer to a caricature of one.
  • Chest Blaster: Or Navel Blaster in this case. He fires his beam from his belly button.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: No one knows what his deal is, not even the author himself.
  • Cowardly Lion: During the Training Camp arc he hides in the bushes and is absolutely terrified when he discovers he is mere feet away from the villain rendezvous point. Still when the villains start to escape with two student hostages he is able to blast the hostage taker and free at least one student. It can also be argued that with how outnumbered he was and with two unconscious fellow students, staying quiet was ultimately the better plan.
  • Everything's Better with Sparkles: He has a lot of shiny things in his room, including a disco ball and an armor set.
  • Glass Cannon: His laser has excellent offensive potential, but he himself isn't very strong.
  • Gratuitous English and French: Alternates between these.
  • Heroic R.R.O.D.: Can't fire his blaster too much or it'll put strain on his stomach.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Attempts to use himself as bait by firing his laser straight up into the sky to draw everyone's attention during the "Provisional Licence Exam" arc so Iida can run away after they're heavily outnumbered. Luckily, the remaining members of the class all converge on the laser to help.
  • Hidden Depths: In spite of being so comically narcissistic, he was observant of others enough to pick up on Uraraka's crush on Deku before she herself was consciously aware of it.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: It's implied that his overblown narcissism may be an act he puts on while in public. He states that he's always wanted to be equals with the rest of the class during the provisional license exams, prompting Iida to tell him that he already is.
  • Light 'em Up: His beams.
  • Meaningful Name: "Yuuga" means "elegance".
  • Narcissist: His favorite thing? Himself.
    • His dorm room has a large portrait of himself as well as an entire set of mirrors of different sizes.
  • Perpetual Smiler: His facial expression rarely changes from an arrogant, closed smile, not even when he speaks.
  • Personality Powers: He is as flashy as his sparkling beams are.
  • Recoil Boost: Can propel himself by firing his beam at the opposite direction he wants to go.
  • Running Gag: It goes hand and hand with his Narcissism. Whenever he starts to brag or speak highly of himself, he either gets interrupted (mainly by Mina) or just outright ignored.
  • Shipper on Deck: During exams, asks Uraraka if she has a thing for Deku when she starts thinking about what he'd do in their situation.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He's extremely self-conceited for a character that is mostly used for gags.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Facially, he and his mother are near-identical, with the only big difference being their hairstyles.
  • You Are Better Than You Think: Gets this speech from Iida when he attempts to make an Heroic Sacrifice, who tells him that he is in the same level as the class, not under them.

    Tooru Hagakure — Invisible Girl 
Voiced by: Kaori Nazuka (Japanese), Felecia Angelle (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hagakure.png

A bubbly girl with a Quirk that turns her body invisible all the time. Usually recognized as a set of seemingly floating clothes (or just a pair of floating gloves and shoes when wearing her costume).
  • Blinded by the Light: Able to refract light inside of her and intensify it, making her capable of blinding people. This hints at a general light manipulation ability, with her invisibilty being one of its effects.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Considering that her costume is pretty much just a pair of gloves and shoes, she's pretty much fighting in the nude.
  • Gender-Blender Name: "Tooru" is usually a male name. The author originally conceived Tooru as a boy, but thought it would be cooler if she were a girl instead.
  • Genki Girl: She seems very lively for an invisible person.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: She has several in her room, including one that looks like Nedzu.
  • Invisibility: Her main Quirk power.
  • Invisible Streaker: She doesn't have access to Magic Pants, so she needs to constantly strip off her clothes in order for her Quirk to be useful.
  • Logical Weakness: Her Quirk is indeed useful when she's fully naked, but that also means she gets exposed to the elements. Thus, when she confronts Todoroki, his ice power made it impossible for her to walk without freezing her bare feet.
  • Meaningful Name: "Tooru" means "transparent".
  • Naked People Are Funny: The whole "she's naked but you can't see it in the first place" aspect of her character is played for all the comedy it can give, like her volume profile being described as "tasteful nude" (it shows nothing).
  • Personality Powers: Subverted. Despite being literally invisible, she is not shy or introverted at all. In fact, one could argue she's so outgoing and unabashed because of being literally invisible.
  • Running Gag: People blushing at just the implication that she is totally naked most of the time.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: The only girl in the class who doesn't mind wearing a cheerleader outfit, even after it turned out to be just a prank by Mineta and Kaminari. Arguably justified by her invisibility. Although amusingly during the anime's version of the Battle Trial Arc she asks Ojiro not to look as she removes her gloves and shoes (as he points out it's not as if he'd be able to see anything anyway).
  • V Sign: A favorite of hers. Only visible in her costume though, because it has gloves.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Her ability is great for stealth, but not that good for combat. Nonetheless, she seems capable to hold herself in a fight, as show in the Hero License Exam and how she was able to pass the U.A. Entrance Exam.

    Mezou Shouji — Tentacole 
Voiced By: Masakazu Nishida (Japanese), Ian Sinclair (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shoji.png

A tall, intimidating, yet friendly man whose Quirk, "Replicant Arms", allows him to grow tentacles that can replicate parts of his body, thus, he is often compared to an octopus.
  • All There in the Manual: The sketches of the character's original design reveals how his face looks unmasked, otherwise, it can't be seen in the manga.
  • Ambiguously Human: Even despite his tentacles, he's way too tall for a 15-year old and his face has an overall odd shape.
  • An Arm and a Leg: A villain severs one of his arms during the attack on the training camp. It leaves a nasty gash, but he comes out fine otherwise due to his Quirk.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: An octopus. This one is a bit subtle. See Lost in Translation below.
  • Body Horror: While it isn't played up as this, his appearance is rather disturbing.
  • Combat Tentacles: Uses them to replicate parts of his body.
  • Cool Mask: The lower half of his face is always covered by a sort of ninja mask.
  • Creepy Good: He is far from heroic looking, and according to extra material, his mask is used to hide a villainous-looking face, yet is one of the gentlest characters in Class 1-A.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Shouji gets a moment to shine fighting alongside Midoriya, and helped with the rescue attempt to get the captured Bakugou and Tokoyami back from the villains, during the School Trip arc.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He appeared during the entrance exam, albeit he could only be seen from a back view.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: And also mouths, ears, etc. He can replicate any body parts on his tentacles.
  • Gentle Giant: He is noticeably bigger than most of his classmates (enough to carry two of them on his back), but he is an okay fellow.
  • Hidden Depths: Apart from a desk and a futon, Shouji's room is completely empty. He explains that it's because he hasn't had any "worldly desires" ever since he was young.
  • Humble Hero: As he states, he has no "worldly desires" and seems to live a very simple lifestyle.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous + Extra Eyes + Too Many Mouths: His Quirk allows him to have all of those, sometimes at the same time even.
  • Lost in Translation: His hero name in Japanese is pronounced as "Tentakoru", which is close to the Japanese way to pronounce "Tentacle" (Tentakuru), except with "tako" (Japanese for "octopus") inserted in place of "taku", turning his hero name into a Punny Name. This wasn't localized, which means that Shouji's hero name ends up sounding just like a weird corruption of the word "Tentacle".
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: In some of the concept art, we see what he looks like without the mask, and hes got a wide lipless mouth with lots of teeth. Apparently he wears the mask because his classmates told him he looked too scary to be a hero.
  • Mysterious Past: When Nejire asks what's the story behind the mask he wears, he starts telling about "A long time ago", just to be cut short so she asks Todoroki about his scar, as a result, the reader never finds out the story behind the mask, though He is stated in extra material that his face is considered villainous looking by others, so he decided to hide it, how he came to that conclusion or if someone else told him to do so is not stated.
  • Nice Guy: He is very kind hearted and calm most of the time, even guaranteeing Tokoyami he holds no grudge against him after Dark Shadow cut off a part of his arm, and even rescuing him.
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: The only student to wear a sleeveless uniform, in order to accommodate his six arms.
  • Not Quite Flight: His tentacles allow him to glide to a certain extent.
  • Not So Stoic: When All Might shows up in the USJ Arc, he is seemingly fanboying over it for a second.
  • Odd Friendship: With Tokoyami, who seemingly starts developing this from the Training Arc onward. Showing that a six armed Gentle Giant and a bird-headed chuunibyou Goth really can be friends.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Alongside his mask, they help cover most of his face.
  • Punny Name: His name references a proverb: "the walls have ears, the doors (in this case, those traditional Japanese sliding paper doors, which are called "Shouji") have eyes". Eavesdropping is the main strength of his Quirk. Also the case with his hero name, as shown on the Lost in Translation entry.
  • The Stoic: Mostly keeps level headed and calm, even in dangerous situations, this can be partly said to the fact that, since he has only half of his face showing, it would be harder to show expressions.
  • Super Strength: Thanks to his large build and being able to have extra arms, he is one of the class' physical powerhouses.

    Eijirou Kirishima — Red Riot 
Voiced by: Toshiki Masuda (Japanese), Justin Cook (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kirishima2.png

An eager young man who is obsessed with the concept of manliness. His Quirk, "Hardening", allows him to harden his body. He is often seen hanging out with Bakugou and is also very close friends with Tetsutetsu from Class 1-B.
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • He was the only one that could convince Bakugou during the Hideout Raid arc to allow his classmates to save him.
    • The Sports Festival arc develops his rivalry with Class-B's Tetsutetsu.
    • Chapters 132-134 of the Internship arc are centered on him gaining his Next Tier Power-Up.
  • Alliterative Name: His hero name, Red Riot.
  • Anime Hair: Styled to be so, since his natural hair is down. When spiked, his hair is made to even make it look like he has two little horns.
  • Ascended Extra: Is the only one other than the main characters to be focused on the anime's second OP.
  • Beware of the Nice Ones: While he is one of the nicest characters in the series, he is powerful and does well during combat. In addition, he's certainly not a pushover and is not above getting angry at people who go too far.
  • Boring, but Practical: How he feels about his own Quirk. He acknowledges that it's useful, but also finds it generic and not flashy enough. He doesn't take it well when he meets another student whose Quirk is nearly identical to his own. His special move reflects this. While others use flashy techniques or complex tricks, Kirishima's special move is to push his Quirk to its absolute limit to become even more Made of Iron than he usually is.
  • Color Character: Red Riot, which in turn is inspired by Crimson Riot, a retro hero that Kirishima admires.
  • Curtains Match the Window: He has red hair and red eyes.
  • Fiery Redhead: One of the more Hot-Blooded students.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Bakugou and Tetsutetsu.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Blames himself for not doing anything to prevent Bakugou from getting captured, and, overall, thinks he's behind his classmates in terms of ability and experience. At one point, even goes as far as saying he's "just a mess of weaknesses." His self-depreciation surprises people when he expresses it.
  • Instant Armor: His Quirk is being able to harden his body. His special move makes it so even his eyeballs are tough enough to shatter blades.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: As a nod to his Boring, but Practical powers, the databook gives him a set of pretty balanced stats.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: He along with Bakugou are the first to attack the villain blocking his class's path during the Rescue Trial. Doesn't work, but points for trying.
  • Meaningful Name: "Kirishima" has the character for the verb "cut". Likewise, "Eijirou" has the character for "sharp".
  • Morality Pet: For Bakugou.
  • My Greatest Failure: Seems to view his inability to prevent Bakugou's kidnapping as this.
  • Nice Guy: One of the nicest characters in the series. He's the only one trying to befriend Bakugou, he tried to break the tension when Todoroki declared rivalry to Midoriya, he's the first one trying to check All Might's condition after his fight with Noumu, he leaps to accept and comfort Tsuyu when she's feeling guilty, and even tries to comfort and give advice to a villain who just shot Kirishima's senpai and Kirishima himself. The result of the entrance examination also shows him with the fourth highest Rescue Points of the results, just behind Midoriya, Uraraka, and Class 1-B's Kendou.
  • Nightmare Face: When, in chapter #134, he turns his Quirk Up to Eleven. The facial crenelations that usually come with activation of his Quirk intensify and extend onto his eyeballs, his irises become polygonal, his hands are transformed into talons, and his mouth becomes a distended, lipless maw.
  • Odd Friendship: Seems to be the only one capable of calling Bakugou a friend.
  • Only Friend: To Bakugou. While he has a good relationship with everyone else in his class, with Kaminari even viewing Bakugou as a friend, Bakugou only sees Kirishima as his friend.
  • Personality Powers: The only classmate who's able to simply shrug off Bakugou's attitude, and even act friendly toward him. In other words, he's very "thick-skinned".
  • Scars Are Forever: Nicked himself in the eye when his Quirk first manifested at the age of three. He still has a small line right above his eyelid Although it can be easily mistaken as an eyelash.
  • Shonen Hair: It somehow manages to outspike Bakugou's. However, considering that Kirishima can wear his hair down, the spikeness is most likely not natural. His hair sometimes gets spikier and sharper when he uses his Quirk, especially when he uses his special move, "Unbreakable."
  • Smarter Than You Look: During the Stain arc, he realized that Deku texting out of the blue was unusual, so he called the police to go there as soon as he got the text.
  • Stone Wall: Basically what his move, "Unbreakable", turns him into. His entire body becomes so hard it shatters blades on impact.
  • Super Toughness: Can survive tons of steel falling into him thanks to his Quirk.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: Obsessed with "manly" things.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: His hero costume has him topless except for a couple of gear-shaped pauldrons over his shoulders. Considering his Quirk, it's not as though he needs protection, and if he wore a top, that top may rip since his Quirk can cause spikes to come out of his skin.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: His special move is simply to harden himself even more than normal, hardening even his own eyeballs in the process, and making it so hard that it would shatter blades attempting to cut him.

    Tsuyu Asui — Froppy 
Voiced by: Aoi Yuuki (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/asui.png

A girl who can do anything a frog can do. This Quirk, called "Frog-Form", may seem strange, but it means being able to jump across very long distances in a single bound, unbelievable agility in water, and a tongue that functions like a flexible steel cable. She is able to maintain a calm, reasonable demeanor through the most stressful situations and is also known for always speaking about what's on her mind.
  • Action Girl: She's actually pretty competent at fighting and general heroics.
  • Ambiguously Human: One of the more extreme examples by virtue of being part frog. It's even worse with her parents, who look pretty much like anthropomorphic frogs.
  • Animal Motifs: Guess. Fittingly, her first friend was a snake girl.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: "Does whatever a frog can!"
  • Badass Adorable: The badass part becomes obvious after she dropkicked a shark like villain in order to save Midoriya's life. The adorable part comes from being an endearing Cute Monster Girl who makes a variety of cute facial expressions and always insists that her friends call her Tsuyu-chan/Tsu.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Midoriya and Mineta after they're warped to a water area, and attacked by a fish-type villain.
  • Breakout Character: Became a major fan favourite thanks to her cute design and personality. This earned her a lot of appearences in official art and her own short side-story chapter.
  • Brutal Honesty: Not afraid to say what's on her mind. After the Bakugou vs Uraraka fight, she has an exchange with Kaminari along the lines of this:
    Kaminari: (to Bakugou) If it were me, I wouldn't dare to go all out on a fragile girl like that.
    Tsuyu: You got easily beaten, though.
  • Chameleon Camouflage: The result of her training her quirk is that Tsuyu can now camouflage herself much like certain species of frogs.
  • Character Tics: She has a constant habit of touching her finger to her chin in contemplation. Take a look at the picture of her on this page!
  • Cry Cute: When she cries, it causes her normally flat demeanor to completely vanish. It's best seen when Tsuyu had a very tearful breakdown in the middle of Chapter 99, feeling extremely ashamed about making cutting remarks towards her peers when some of them wanted to go rescue Bakugou on their own after she warned them it would be highly irresponsible, only to learn they still did and not having the courage to join them on their rescue mission, blaming her original comments as the words of a coward. It is the first time she ever shows extreme emotion, and she looks so pitiful that a few of her closest classmates immediately crouch around her and hug her, causing her to break down into full sobs. Some of the fandom have even come to call this moment "Froggy Tears".
  • Cute Monster Girl: You wouldn't expect a human frog to be this adorable.
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • Her and Mineta fought alongside Midoriya during the USJ arc.
    • Gets her own short side-story in "Tsuyu-chan's Ribbet-ing Diary".
  • Emotionless Girl: Played with as a misconception people tend to have about her at first glance, because her looks can deceive. She has a relatively un-emotive face much like a frog's, and on the outside, it makes her appear aloof and a little creepy to strangers, which is why it was hard for her to find true friends during middle school. She really does feels emotions just as much as anybody else would, some even more so than others.
  • Expy: On the one hand she's like Spider-Man with a different Animal Motif. On the other hand, her powers are identical to those of the X-Men villain Toad.
  • First-Name Basis: Insists people call her by her first name, Tsuyu. A bonus chapter showing her backstory implies she considers it a sign of friendship, due to it being what her first friend referred to her with. However, if she refuses to let someone call her by that name, it's a sign of hostility.
  • Friendless Background: Thanks to studying and having to look after her siblings, she didn't make any friends until the last year of middle school.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Her hair is either black, black with teal highlights, or teal entirely.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: How good a superpower is the ability to do "whatever a frog can", exactly? Good enough to qualify into an elite hero school with a 1 in 300 admittance rate, apparently! She has super jumping, a prehensile tongue, mildly poisonous mucus and other amphibian superpowers - none too spectacular, but not a bad package overall either, just ask Toad.
  • Hidden Depths: In addition to her ambition to be a hero, she a caretaker for her 2 younger siblings.
  • In a Single Bound: Being a frog, she can jump very high.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Has a frog tongue as well as certain frog abilities like croaking and secreting poison. She also has elongated hands, feet, and digits as well as the limberness of a frog.
  • Meaningful Name: "Asui" contains the character for "frog".
  • Multipurpose Tongue: Again, frog. Overly Long Tongue is to be expected.
  • Nerves of Steel: One of her strong points as a hero is her ability to remain calm, no matter how dire the situation may seem.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Looks more cartoony than her classmates, but far from a Gonk. Might possibly be trying to convey Girl Next Door good looks in comparison to her Generic Cuteness classmates.
  • Not So Stoic: Poor girl actually cries in Chapter 99 when she express her feelings to Bakugou's rescue squad.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: She's normally calm and very open with her thoughts. So when she expresses to Bakugou's rescue squad that she doesn't know what to say to them regarding what happened and then starts crying due to her conflicted emotions, it really hammers in how heavy that arc affected everyone.
  • Poisonous Person: Somewhat, her stomach can make poisonous mucus and she can secrete it, but it makes more of a stinging sensation than anything really fatal.
  • Promotion to Parent: Due to her parents often being away from home, she acts as this for her younger siblings.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her long hair is tied up in a ribbon-like fashion.
  • Ship Tease: She gets one with Izuku in a preview for a Jump Festa 2016 OVA. In it, Izuku is carrying her while she has a broken leg and both of them are blushing.
  • The Stoic: Like water off a frog's back, nothing really fazes her and her expression rarely changes. This is noted to be her strongest point as a hero, as her always cool-headed personality allows her to make good judgments in many situations and also gives a calming effect on others, making her an emotional pillar in teams.
    • Not So Stoic: When Tsuyu makes bad judgements, however, they haunt her and leave her very shaken. She once tried to conceal her pain, but she became withdrawn, guilty and conflicted in the process, alerting everybody something was wrong. When she finally came clean and owned up to her sorrows, she was choking up with tears.
  • Stomach of Holding: Can hold fairly large objects in her stomach, but getting them out leaves her visibly nauseated.
  • Super Strength: One of her most important Required Secondary Powers. She can carry people with her tongue (think about that one for a second), and her legs are as enormously powerful as you might expect from a human who can jump around like a frog.
  • Tears of Remorse: She had so much pent-up regret toward comparing some of her classmates going the vigilante route to acting like villains when the rules of conduct stood in the way of someone's rescue when doing nothing hurt even worse that it eventually reduced her to tears.
    • It takes on a whole new meaning now that there is a spin-off manga specifically aimed at explaining where vigilantes fall on the scales of morality and good versus evil.
  • Thinking Out Loud: Does this sometimes, often to being very...overly descriptive.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Both of her parents are Gonks, but Tsuyu and both of her siblings look far cuter.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Tsuyu struggled against Ectoplasm during their spar and, as mentioned below under Weak, but Skilled, she has trouble doing major damage to Villains. By the time she took up her internship, Tsuyu has trained enough to be able to knock out a Gigantification Quirk user (who was the size of a small apartment complex) in one attack after Nejire knocked them over.
  • Verbal Tic: "Kero", the Japanese onomatopeia for a frog's croaking, naturally. In English, it becomes "ribbit",
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Mineta. Even though she gets annoyed with his perverted behavior, they do seem to hang out and work together a lot.
  • Wall Crawl: Able to stick to surfaces and climb along them.
  • Weak, but Skilled: As displayed in her official stats, her Power sits at a miserable 1, her Speed at a middling 3, but her Technique and Intelligence are both 4. Overall, while her powerset is not too well suited for taking down a villain - she lacks the sheer strength for that - but on the other hand, it is excellent for rescue purposes both on land (she can grab someone from a great distance with her long tongue, then leap to safety) and underwater (where she has frog-like swimming ability).

    Minoru Mineta — Grape Juice 
Voiced by: Ryo Hirohashi (Japanese), Brina Palencia (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mineta.png

A short and incredibly perverted (something he openly admits) boy with the ability to generate sticky balls from his body. Despite having earned admittance into U.A., he doesn't feel that he'll be able to be a hero because of his odd Quirk.
  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: Due to being a Butt Monkey, on the rare occasions that Mineta does achieve anything, he'll suddenly develop an overinflated ego.
  • Alliterative Name: Minoru Mineta.
  • Blessed with Suck: How he views his own Quirk.
  • Boring, but Practical: What his Quirk really falls under into. Case in point, he still managed to pass the entrance exam by trapping the robots with his balls, immobilizing them, which still counted as points. It's not flashy by any means, but they're definitely useful as traps. Too bad he's still too much of a Cowardly Lion to realize his potential.
  • Butt Monkey: Of Class 1-A.
  • Character Development: During exams, ends up winning against Midnight by himself when he realizes that heroes aren't cool because they're heroes, but the other way around, making him decide that he wants to be cooler as a hero.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Thanks to his general unpopularity, cowardliness, perverted antics and unimpressive Quirk.
  • Cowardly Lion: He's the first to run away from battle, but push him into a corner and he'll give everything he's got to beat you.
  • A Day in the Limelight: He and Tsuyu fought alongside Midoriya during the USJ arc.
  • Heroic R.R.O.D.: He can't keep pulling his sticky balls out for too long or they'll start to make his skin bleed.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Outside of Bakugou, Minoru is probably the Class 1-A student that gets this the most, mostly due to his perverted personality. He is still good friends with Midoriya and Kaminari, at least.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: Overall, this is the goal he is pursuing as a hero (that and feeling up a woman).
  • Informed Attribute: His intelligence stat is 5/5, being the most intelligent student behind only Yaoyorozu. He has yet though, to show signs he is as smart as his stat indicates: His scores were not any higher than Bakugou, Iida, Todoroki and Midoriya, all of whom have 4/5 intelligence. His social intelligence is not any better, as he is often ostracized when women are around and he was shown as a good strategist only once, against Midnight, but there's nothing that indicates he is any better than all of the above. This could be, though, his Cowardly Lion status stopping him from actually using it rather than running.
  • The Load: Literally during the Sports Festival. He glues himself to Momo's back and makes her carry him until the end line, making him place 18th behind her.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: He's a massive, open pervert who admits out loud that his biggest regret was not touching Momo's boobs and gropes Tsuyu during a hug. Even his plan to get through the Obstacle Race event involves using his sticky balls to cling to Yaoyorozu's butt. All of this is Played for Laughs, so he comes across as a mostly harmless annoyance rather than a really dangerous pervert. The "Lovable" part is far more debatable, since nobody show a particular liking towards him, both in-universe and meta.
  • Meaningful Name: Minoru means "Producing fruit" like his talent and the first part of his surname sounds a lot like the English term "Mini" matching his size.
  • No Indoor Voice: He tends to speak his perverted ideas aloud. This trait quickly becomes a Hoist by His Own Petard, as he'll announce a lecherous plan to peak on or sexually harass girls, with the intended targets standing right there to hear it.
  • Older Than They Look: He looks like a small child despite being the same age as his classmates (15).
  • Personality Powers: His Quirk can be considered a big Accidental Innuendo (sticky balls), thus it's not surprising that he is a big pervert.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Literally, as his Quirk actually involves plucking.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Between his perverseness and overall cowardice, it's surprising to know he's at least ranked in the top half of his class in grades, and the databook actually gives him an A in intelligence, ahead of the likes of Midoriya, Bakugou and Iida and behind only Yaoyorozu. Kaminari and Ashido are positively mortified when they find out.
  • Sticky Situation: His Quirk is pulling sticky balls off of himself and sticking it to objects. As long as he's still healthy, they'll stay on for a whole day.
  • Tears of Fear: For being unwilling to fight villains in a life or death situation.
  • Tiny Schoolboy: Standing at just 108cm (3'6''), he is shorter than even Miniature Senior Citizens Gran Torino (128cm) and Recovery Girl (115cm).
  • Unsportsman Like Gloating: After passing the Provisional Hero's License Exam, Mineta starts rubbing it in to Todoroki over how he failed.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway? / Heart Is an Awesome Power: His Quirk is sometimes pointed out as being pretty weak, sometimes even by himself, but Midoriya actually manages to see its true potential and usefulness.
  • With Catlike Tread: Upon discovering a peephole to the girls' locker room, he discusses peeping on his female classmates. Very loudly. He gets one of Jirou's earphone jacks in his eye very quickly.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is mostly purple, going with his grape theme.

     Denki Kaminari — Chargebolt 
Voiced by: Tasuku Hatanaka (Japanese), Kyle Phillips (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaminari.png

A boy whose Quirk, called "Static Buildup", allows him to generate electricity from his body, but only to the point of using it as a sort of electric armor. Despite his Quirk, he's not the brightest bulb in the box.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Not as bad as Mineta, but he has no problem in joining his antics.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: That lightning-shaped streak on his hair is completely natural, and he just so happens to have electric powers.
  • Book Dumb: Does horribly in tests, although it has been shown that he can manage his way through villain attacks just fine.
  • Butt Monkey: Doesn't have it quite as bad as Mineta, but the dumb state he's left in when he short-circuits and some of his screw-ups (like his match against Ibara) have been the subject of a good few jokes at his expense.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Kaminari does try to smooth talk some ladies every now and then, but he usually ends up making a fool of himself.
  • Civvie Spandex: His costume is not very different from Jirou's, favoring a trendy look over any sort of practicality. He gets a few gadgets later, but he still looks relatively casual.
  • Cowardly Lion: Spends the first stage of the Hero's License Exam throughly freaked out by Seiji Shishikura's Quirk, but after Shishikura insults his classmates one too many times, Kaminari finally goes on the offense.
  • Curtains Match the Window: His golden eyes matches his blond hair.
  • The Ditz: While not that stupid, he definitely counts while in his "moron state", when he literally short-circuits his brain.
  • Exactly What I Aimed At: His upgraded costume now includes flying disks that he can send his electrical blasts toward, through air instead of touch, he must position them behind what he wants to hit, hence seeming to miss with his disk launcher.
  • Heroic R.R.O.D.: He has a wattage limit to how much he can discharge. He goes over that, he "short-circuits" his own brain and is left in a dumb state for an hour.
  • Hidden Depths: When Jirou suggests the hero name "Jamming-Whey" for Kaminari (as an insult, since when in his "moron state", he just makes the sound "wheyy"), he immediately thinks she's making a connecting to Ernest Hemingway, an American novelist. Quite the connection for a generally Book Dumb Japanese student.
  • Innocently Insensitive: When Stain is brought up, he says that, in spite of him being a murderous villain, his level of conviction and tenacity were cool...with Iida, whose brother was severely injured fighting Stain, sitting not too far away. He sincerely apologizes once Midoriya points out the insensitivity of his remark.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: During the License Exam, Kaminari finally gets show off how much he's improved using his quirk.
  • Meaningful Name: "Kaminari Denki" literally means "Lightning Electricity".
  • Multicoloured Hair: Blonde with a black lightning bolt shape at the left side.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: He speaks like this on one occasion to tease Bakugou.
  • Shock and Awe: Sorta, he's not quite good at controlling it and just "wears" lighting and can discharge it in short bursts. Meaning at best he just act as a taser and this means having to actually get up close to his targets. If he goes all out, he risks hitting allies as well as enemies.
  • Stupidity-Inducing Attack: It's his Heroic R.R.O.D. caused by breaking his own wattage limit. If he ends up like this in a battle, it's an Instant-Win Condition for the opponent.

    Kyouka Jirou — Earphone Jack 
Voiced by: Kei Shindou (Japanese), Trina Nishimura (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jiro_0.png

An aloof rocker girl whose Quirk, "Earphone Jack", consists of elongated earlobes that can catch faint sounds as well as amplify them for offensive purposes.
  • Action Girl: Inevitable, given how she is more aggressive and tomboyish than the other female students. She is also able to use a katana at least well enough to fight off some Mooks.
  • A-Cup Angst: She appears to be sensitive about her "modest" bust. She even got upset when Mineta went on a Buxom Is Better rant, and did not include her in his list of girls to peep on.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Similar to Kaminari, she has random streaks on her hair that resemble cardiac flatlines in her case, which perfectly fit her heartbeat-based sound attacks.
  • Civvie Spandex: Keeping with her punk rock theme, her costume looks more like she's heading to a mosh pit rather than fighting crime. Her upgraded costume includes headphones.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She kicks Kaminari into the action despite his hesitance to fight because she realizes that he can function as a living taser before he does.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She's quite sharp-tongued, especially towards Kaminari.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her new special move, "Heartbeat Fuzz" allows her to use her waves in such a high impact, it is able to shake and destroy the earth before her.
  • Facial Markings: She has tear-shaped markings on her cheeks.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Her friendship with Kouda sets off from their teamwork against Present Mic in the End Of Terms Arc.
  • Goth: The rock fan variety.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While she isn't exactly the nicest person, she shows her softer side when she tries encouraging Kouda during the Student vs Teacher test.
  • Like Mother, Like Daughter: She and her mother share the same quirk and similar physical traits.
    • Her love for rock music definitely comes from her father.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Her Quirk allows her to increase the sound of her heartbeat and, in combination with her costume, transfer the sound to her targets. Considering how much she hops around during fights. It's pretty useful.
  • Meaningful Name: "Jirou" contains the character for "ear". "Kyouka" contains the character for the verb "echo".
  • Nom de Mom: She and her dad use her mom' surname. Word of God states that's relatively common in this universe.
  • Odd Friendship: Seems to be Momo's, the Spoiled Sweet Teen Genius, closest friend, being a Jerk with a Heart of Gold with a very unsophisticated Quirk and lifestyle herself.
  • Personality Powers: Yes, the rocker girl has sound-based earplug powers.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Whenever she does smile, it's usually to give a condescending remark to Denki.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Has this dynamics with Momo, being the Tomboy to her Girly Girl.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: If her character file is anything to go by.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Besides being quite snarky all the time, she has a soft spot for Momo and Kouda.
  • Unusual Ears: Her earlobes are long and look like audio connectors.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Seems to have this relationship with her father. While he tries to look like a serious stern father in front of Aizawa and All Might, she points out he was acting like a fanboy on the day before and acts more mature over all during the visit.
  • Whip It Good: Her Earphone Jacks can also be used like this.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Not really blue, but blue-ish purple.

    Momo Yaoyorozu — Creaty 
Voiced by: Marina Inoue (Japanese), Colleen Clinkenbeard (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yaoyorozu1.png

Class 1-A's vice-president and also a recommended student. An intelligent and observant young woman from a wealthy background whose Quirk, "Creation", allows her to create any non-living object out of her body. While usually confident in her skills, she is known to lose self-esteem when she underperforms.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Her costume's top is a shirt with a cut low enough to reach her stomach.
  • The Ace: One of two students recommended to enroll in U.A. without having to pass the entrance exams, the other being Todoroki.
  • Action Girl: Perhaps the biggest one in Class 1-A.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Her fight with Tokoyami at the sports festival was just a single panel in the manga, and was part of Deku explaining the fights. It wouldn't be until much later that we see how much her loss effected her mental state. The anime on the other hand shows the fight in earnest while also focusing on how overwhelmed and nervous Momo was during it.
  • Always Someone Better: When comparing herself to Shouto Todoroki, she considers him this. The End of Term Tests Arc reveals that this is mutual, although both recognize that Shouto is the more powerful one, he thinks that she is a far better leader and strategist than him. She also scores higher in tests than him.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Rivals, or even surpasses Midoriya in some respects. Her breakdown of the first "Heroes vs. Villains" match-up hit every single point that All Might wanted to make. It also extends to her Quirk, as she has to understand the properties of an object before she can create it.
  • Badass Bookworm: Has the highest grades in the class, as well as rivaling Deku in assessing and analyzing battles.
  • Big Eater: Eats a lot in order to have a large store of matter to draw from when she creates objects. Not that it shows.
  • Boobs of Steel: The toughest girl in Class 1-A. Naturally, she's also the bustiest.
  • Broken Ace: Thanks to losing to Tokoyami before she could fight back in the tournament, as well as not being able to assert her ideas during the cavalry battle and exams, her confidence takes a dive. She recovers it after figuring out a way to beat Aizawa-sensei.
  • Brutal Honesty: Points out all the flaws in the first Hero vs Villains match and how it could've gone if the teams used their powers more effectively.
  • Class Representative: The vice-president of Class 1-A, below Iida.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Yaoyorozu received some focus on her lack of confidence during the End Term arc when she and Todoroki were assigned to go up against Eraserhead for their final test.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: If Jirou's reaction to her Shirtless Scene is anything to go by.
  • Go-Getter Girl: Is focused on academic studies and becoming a hero (which shows in her class grades and rank), but falls into Heroic Self-Deprecation at times.
  • Humble Hero: Zigzagged. She honestly wants to be a hero for good, but is completely oblivious when socializing with those on the lower spectrum of the economy class, so she tends to come across as Innocently Insensitive towards her friends. Interestingly, this is considered an endearing point of hers for them.
  • Innocently Insensitive: In an endearing way, Yaoyorozu tends to forget that status-wise she's much wealthier than her classmates, not because she feels that she's above them but because she's naive about their differing lifestyles. So she'll do things like casually talk about her mansion and expensive tea brands while oblivious to how baffled her friends are. She also brings her king sized bed to her dorm room but did not take into account that the dorm room would be much smaller than what she's used to.
  • In-Series Nickname: Yaomomo.
  • Meaningful Name: "Yaoyorozu" is a traditional word that means "eight million" or, more appropriately, a really high number. This relates to the amount of stuff she can create with her Quirk.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her costume is a miniskirt and a top that boldly displays her cleavage. Given that her Quirk produces objects from her own body, there's a more practical reason for this trope than usual.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite the seriousness of the situation, during the Bakugou Rescue Arc when the team needs disguises, they purchase them from a store. When it's pointed out that Momo could just make them herself, she stammers and tries to play it off as supporting the local economy... despite it being pretty obvious that she was excited about visiting said store.
  • Number Two: She is the vice-class representative behind Iida. In an unofficial way, she is also this to Midoriya. In most given situations, Class 1-A looks at Midoriya for guidance, if he is not around, the one to take the role of The Leader will often be her.
  • Ojou: Her insane wealth has become something of a Running Gag.
  • The Power of Creation: Her Quirk allows her to come up with any object out of her body save for living matter, though larger objects take more time and cause Clothing Damage.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: In the first major battle, her plan destroys her entire top. She's not fazed in the slightest and simply announces that she'll make a new one. Somewhat justified in that the only person who could see her at the time was a girl. Then when she's teamed up with Todoroki; without telling him, she opens her top a bit to allow for more space in creating the alloy fibres she was using to face off against Eraserhead in the practical exam. When she's really focused, it seems she doesn't really care about modesty regardless of who's watching.
    • However, it seems this only applies when in battle. Other times, she becomes rather mortified, like when she tricked into wearing a cheerleader outfit by Mineta.
  • Skilled, but Na´ve: Word of God stated this is what she is intended to be. The author thinks it would be interesting to have a powerful ability at the hand of a newbie.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She is the wealthiest student in her class, but she never flaunts her money or acts snobby.
  • Spontaneous Weapon Creation: She has the ability to generate any type of non-living matter from her body, and she uses it to create weapons for her friends.
  • Squishy Wizard: She can create just about any kind of object she wishes, but depending on the object, it takes time to make them. So she needs others to hold off the enemy while she creates the materials she needs.
  • Teen Genius: A justified example as Yaoyorozu's Quirk requires her to know the exact molecular formula of any object she wants to create, so she needs to have great memory and analysis skills. This is made obvious as she has the highest grades of the entire Class of 1-A and according to her stats in the Official Character Book, she has a Intelligence Ranking of 6/5 or S.note 
  • The Strategist: Combine The Ace with Teen Genius and Awesomeness by Analysis and this is the result.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Has this dynamics with Jirou, being the Girly Girl to her Tomboy.
    • Odd Friendship: She becomes Jirou's close friend as time goes. Jirou being the most outspoken tomboyish and snarkiest girl in the group while Momo is a pinnacle of delicacy and politeness.
  • Younger Than They Look: Like Iida, she has a very mature physique for a 15-year old.

    Fumikage Tokoyami — Tsukuyomi 
Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya (Japanese), Josh Grelle (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tokoyami2.PNG

A student with a bird-like appearance. His Quirk, "Dark Shadow", manifests as a sort of shadow beast that lives within his body. Despite his looks and Quirk, he is actually quite righteous.
  • Adorkable: He has a tendency to say dramatic things about situations that don't quite deserve them, such as calling a recreational game on their school trip a "mad banquet of darkness." He even repeats it which Uraraka lampshades. His first name for his new super move is very dark and dramatic sounding, but one of the teachers tells him its doesn't roll off the tongue well at all. And cementing this would how he got angry when nobody took his room's decor (which was very dark and spooky) seriously. He's kind of a dork in short.
  • All-Encompassing Mantle: His hero costume features one.
  • Ambiguously Human: An extreme example, that bird head is quite misleading.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: His crow head does not appear to be related to his "Dark Shadow" Quirk at all (besides the shadow having a crow head too, but every shadow is supposed to look like their owner anyway).
  • Badass Baritone: His short stature belies a rather deep voice.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: And thank goodness for that. Tokoyami would be a major villainous threat with his Quirk at night if he weren't aspiring to be a hero.
  • Boring, but Practical: Dark Shadow at daytime is a reliable and versatile Quirk, albeit a bit cowardly.
  • Casting a Shadow: His Quirk is a Living Shadow that he can project from his body.
  • Chuunibyou: One who has a penchant for the more mystical sounding over dramatics, though not as delusional as other examples of it. This is directly connected to him being seen as a Goth and a dork.
  • Cold Ham: He constantly tries to invoke this. When he speaks, expect Tokoyami to say something overly dramatic about the current situation. 
  • Creepy Good: From the way he behaves to his powers and his Super-Powered Evil Side, it's easier for people to be scared of him, but he is nonetheless, a hero in training.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Moonfish never stood a chance. Similarly to Yaoyorozu.
    • Was on the receiving end of one against Bakugou thanks to Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors. His Quirk simply didn't stand a chance against all the light created by Bakugou's explosions.
  • Dark is Evil: While he, as a person, is not evil, his Dark Shadow becomes quite destructive when it gets out of his control, becoming a mass of shadows that tries to engulf him while attacking even those he consider friends.
  • Dark is Not Evil: Darkness and shadows are traits normally associated with villains, but what we've seen of Tokoyami so far paints him as a rather valiant person.
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • Had a major moment in the spotlight when Midoriya recruited Tokoyami for his Cavalry Battle team during the Sports Festival arc.
    • The Field Trip arc was also a moment of focus on Tokoyami, which showed off his Dark Shadow going on a rampage.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He first appears in the third chapter fighting a 2-point robot during the entrance exam, but it's easy to completely miss him. Bonus points for actually looking like a bird.
  • Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: He is weak against quirks able to generate light, meaning that Bakugou, Todoroki, Kaminari, Aoyama and Hagakure would have a good chance of defeating him, since he would be left weakened.
  • Goth: If his appearance didn't already make it clear, his dorm room does.
  • Guardian Entity: The Dark Shadow.
  • Living Shadow: The Dark Shadow appears to have its own mind and personality despite being just an extension of Tokoyami's body.
  • Long-Range Fighter: He is great at keeping enemies away from him, but has trouble if the enemy manages to close in through dodging or numbers.
  • Meaningful Name: His first name roughly translates to "Unsavory Shadow" while his last name literally means "Eternal Darkness", both emphasizing the power and hard-to-control nature of his darkness related Quirk.
  • Multiform Balance: Depending of the surrounding light conditions, he has to sacrifice either the strength of his Quirk or his control over it. In bright light, his Dark Shadow is docile but also very weak and timid. In darkness, it's stronger but also harder to control as well.
    • Later, he develops a technique of shrouding himself in Dark Shadow as a close-range option, trading range for improved defense.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: He has a very evil-sounding, darkness-based name. "Tokoyami" literally means Eternal Darkness. This matches his powers perfectly, though not his personality.
  • Not So Stoic: He does have his moments when he can't always keep his cool. When his classmates got a good look at his gothic dorm room, he's sulking and angrily yells at them to get the hell out.
  • Odd Friendship: With Shouji, who seemingly starts developing this from the Training Arc onward. Showing that a six armed Gentle Giant and a bird-headed chuunibyou Goth really can be friends.
  • Personality Powers: Casting a Shadow -> Gothic, brooding guy implied to have a "chuunibyou" complex (the "Evil Eye" type).
  • Petting Zoo People: Bird People variety. He's somewhere in-between this trope and Little Bit Beastly. His head is bird-like in appearance, but everything else from the neck down is human.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: At 158 centimeteres (5'2"), Tokoyami is the second shortest male in Class 1-A, but is explicitly stated to be one of its strongest fighters.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: His Dark Shadow pretty much does all the fighting for him. This leaves him rather helpless in situations where he can't rely on his shadow, and All Might suggests he work on his own body as well. Also, see Long-Range Fighter above.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: At nighttime, his shadow actively works to take control of his body, and the trade-off is an insane amount of raw power that perhaps only One For All could match.
  • The Stoic: One of the more cool headed students of 1-A, and overall a no-nonsense kind of person.
  • Toothy Bird: He's got a set of human-like choppers inside his beak.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His Quirk at max power can easily beat enemies that even Todoroki or Bakugou would have trouble with, but his control over this form is very limited.
  • Weakened by the Light: The Dark Shadow becomes weaker when faced with light, but this also makes it easier to control for Tokoyami.

    Hanta Sero — Cellophane 
Voiced by: Kiyotaka Furushima (Japanese), Christopher Bevins (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sero.png

A young man whose Quirk, "Tape", allows him to create cellophane tape out of his elbows, which look like tape dispensers. He can use his tape for traps and mobility.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: It's a bit of Fridge Brilliance to people who don't see it right away, but his hero costume's helmet was made to be similar to a tape dispenser.
  • Boring, but Practical: Much like Mineta above, he specializes in traps more than direct combat. His Quirk is more versatile though.
    • It doesn't seem so boring when he's swinging around like Spider-Man, though.
  • Building Swing: Again, just like good ol' Spidey.
  • Butt Monkey: He is probably the biggest one next to Mineta.
  • Duct Tape for Everything: What his Quirk boils down to, even though it's not exactly duct tape.
  • The Generic Guy: Described as a background character by Word of God, at least for now.
  • Genre Savvy: Played for laughs in Chapter 99. He makes sure to tie Mineta up with his tape before they visit Momo's room.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: Sero's tape dispenser elbows can essentially work like this as the tape he shoots out from them can be rolled back in order to pull himself up (or pull other people towards him).
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: The power to create scotch tape has never been more useful.
  • Heroic R.R.O.D.: Ejecting too much tape causes him to suffer dry skin.
  • Instant Knots: His tape can easily wrap around his intended target. His Quirk wouldn't be as useful otherwise.
  • Never Live It Down: In-Universe, his crushing defeat against Todoroki in the Sports Festival. To his credit, he knew Todoroki was powerful and tried to catch him off guard and throw him out of the ring as soon as possible with his tape. But Todoroki, coming off a conversation with his father, was a little riled at that point which caused him to go a teensy bit overboard on the ice powers.
  • One-Way Visor: Featured in his hero costume.
  • Punny Name: "Serohantepu" is the Japanese way to pronounce "Cellophane Tape".
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: His chosen superhero name doesn't stray too far from his real name. He himself lampshades this, noting he really didn't have to think to hard on the name.

    Mina Ashido — Pinky 
Voiced by: Eri Kitamura (Japanese), Caitlin Glass (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ashido.png

A strange-looking girl whose Quirk, "Acid", allows her to create a corrosive liquid, being also able to control its levels of solubility and viscosity. She is very emotional and easily excited, being one of the rowdier students.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has purplish pink skin, caused by the pigments found in her acid.
  • Ambiguously Human: An extreme example, she looks way more like a Green-Skinned Space Babe than an actual human.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Acid is not exactly the most heroic of powers. Not a problem when she has to face robots or destroy objects, but she has to adjust herself against human enemies.
  • Book Dumb: Like Kaminari, she doesn't perform well in tests, despite having a highly versatile and useful Quirk and reaching the Top 8 of the School Festival Tournament.
  • Color Character: Try to guess.
  • Cute Monster Girl: An attractive, humanoid... something.
  • Fantastic Arousal: Her horns are apparently sensitive given her reaction to them being touched.
  • Genki Girl: Next to Hagakure she's one of the liveliest girls, if not one of the liveliest students in general.
  • Hidden Depths: In her profile, it's stated that she likes dancing which explains why she's the most physically fit of the girls and has the best reflexes among the class.
  • Hollywood Acid: Her Quirk. She can control the ph and viscosity of the fluid she secretes from her skin. Meaning it can be highly acidic and thick or barely acidic and slippery.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a small pair of horns. They are flexible and sensitive, making it unlikely they are made of bone.
  • Meaningful Name: Her surname sounds like "acid", referring to her Quirk.
  • Messy Hair: Not unlike Midoriya's.
  • Pink Means Feminine: A quite girly girl with pink as her theme color.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Her skin is resistant to her own acid, but using it consecutively can lead it to harm her.
  • She's Got Legs: In the character profile, the author quips that her thighs are "healthy".
  • Shipper on Deck: She's intrigued with and supports the idea of Deku and Uraraka being together. To a much lesser extent, she was also entertained with the idea of Eraserhead and Joke being an item.
  • Shout-Out: When deciding what their hero names will be in Chapter 45, Mina's original choice was "Alien Queen," a clear reference to the Xenomorph Queen in Aliens. It's even lampshaded by one of the students. There's even a image of Mina with features of a Xenomorph.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To Aoyama, she often steals his spotlight when he attempts to call attention to himself by managing to be an even Larger and Hammier than him, or simply pointing out how he is wrong in a friendly manner, as a result, he is heavily implied to dislike her.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Her eyes have black sclerae combined with pink irises.
  • Technicolor Toxin: Her acid is purplish pink for some reason.

    Mashirao Ojiro — Tail Man 
Voiced by: Kosuke Miyoshi (Japanese), Mike McFarland (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ojiro.png

A student whose Quirk, "Tail", manifests in him as a tail. He is also good at martial arts and has a deep sense of honor.
  • Boring, but Practical: His Quirk is as simple as it gets: a sturdy tail that can be used for attacking, movement or as a third arm. Very useful, but not exactly flashy.
  • Honor Before Reason: Quits the Sports Festival because he doesn't remember how he managed to advance (thanks to being a victim of Mind Manipulation) and thus he feels unworthy of participating any further.
  • The Generic Guy: Chapter 98 shows various characters' rooms. Midoriya had basically an All Might temple, Kouda brought pets to his room, and Tokoyami has a goth room. However in contrast, Ojiro's room is completely plain and simple.
  • Martial Arts Uniform: His hero costume is really close to one.
  • Meaningful Name: "Mashirao" is a common Japanese name. It also includes the kanji for "tail".
  • Prehensile Tail: His Quirk. It's very thick and strong-looking too.
  • Skintone Sclerae: Weirdly enough, they end up making him look more Asian than the rest of the cast (who are prominently Japanese). This is averted in the anime.
  • Tail Slap: His main method of attacking.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Although we haven't really seen him in action yet, he passed the combat heavy Heroics Department Entrance exam with nothing but a Quirk that just gives him a tail, with the rest being martial arts he learned. This is something of notice in an exam that favors students with powerful, flashy Quirks capable of destruction.
    • He also managed to hold out against a group of foes by himself using hit-and-run tactics when the Villain Alliance attacked.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: He once got chastised for using his tail in a way most people would expect, thus ending up a predictable fighter.

    Kouji Kouda — Anima 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/koda.png

A quiet, gentle student with a rocky-like appearance. His Quirk, "Animal Voice", allows him to control animals. He usually communicates through sign language.
  • Adorkable: He becomes this later on, specially considering his awkwardness and his love for animals, to the point of bringing a pet bunny to his dorm and having a teddy bear.
  • Ambiguously Human: Despite his rocky appearance, he's probably human just like the rest of his classmates.
  • Antiquated Linguistics: When he finally speaks, he does it through this.
    Kouda: Please, go forth, oh band of creatures small, the time to vanquish the source of that cacophony is now, if that's all right...
    Jirou: You talk up a storm!!
  • The Beastmaster: His Quirk allows him to command animals.
  • Cool Mask: Has one as of the costume upgrades prior to the Hero License Exam, that covers his mouth.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: His friendship with Jirou sets off from their teamwork against Present Mic in the End Of Terms Arc.
  • Gentle Giant: He is one of the bigger students in the class. And is quite possibly the gentlest one too.
  • Hand Signals: His main way of communication.
  • Logical Weakness: He has no use on a place where there are no animals to manipulate.
  • Nature Lover: According to supplementary info. Not surprising considering his Quirk. Might also be a Nature Hero, although he doesn't live in isolation.
  • Odd Friendship: While he is a very shy Shrinking Violet, Jirou is an outspoken Deadpan Snarker, even though both Quirks work based on sound, he can talk with animals while she can attack using sound.
  • The Quiet One: He doesn't speak much. He usually communicates through hand gestures or sign language and has so far only been shown talking when using his Quirk.
  • Personality Powers: Played with. It's true that he is good with animals and loves nature, but he is not very communicative otherwise.
  • Repetitive Name: Kouji Kouda.
  • Rock Monster: His body appears to be made of rock, but he doesn't really look that monstrous.
  • Shrinking Violet: Very clearly a shy person, which explains why he's The Quiet One.
    • Apparently so shy that stat wise he shares the lowest teamwork rating with both Bakugou and Aoyama.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: He's afraid of insects, despite being able to control them.
  • Zerg Rush: He can literally swarm foes with nearby animals.

    Rikidou Satou — Sugar Man 
Voiced by: Tooru Nara (Japanese), Cris George (English)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sato.png

A strong-looking student. His Quirk is "Sugar Dope", which allows him to power up through the ingestion of sugar.
  • Dumb Muscle: His Quirk allows him to become stronger, but gradually dumber as well.
  • Expy: Of Kinnikuman.
  • Facial Profiling: Drawn with big lips on him.
  • Heroic Build: Very tall and muscular.
  • Heroic R.R.O.D.: The reduced brain activity that comes with his Quirk.
  • Hour of Power: The boost of strength he gets from ingesting sugar only lasts 3 minutes.
  • Hulking Out: Becomes much bigger and more muscular the more he ingests sugar.
  • Logical Weakness: Implied. Because his Quirk requires consumption of sugar, it can be safe to assume that he's screwed if he doesn't have any.
  • Meaningful Name: His name can literally be translated to "Strength Sugar".
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: Inverted. Sugar actually makes him manlier. His favorite food also happens to be cake.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Wears a pink tuxedo during the popularity poll announcement. "Sugar Man" is also not the manliest of names.
    • Turns out he is also a great baker, just like the trope's page image. Actually justified as this skill is a perfect complement for his Quirk.
  • Super Strength: The main advantage of his Quirk.
  • Supreme Chef: Chapter 99 reveals that, in training his Quirk, he has become excellent at making cake, which in turn makes him instantly popular with the girls in class, much to the dismay Minoru and Denki.
  • Through His Stomach: Gender Inverted. He wins the room contest because the girls thought his cake was delicious. Mineta and Kaminari are horrified that he could become so popular with the girls just like that.
