Inasa Yoarashi — Gale Force
"I believe that heroes are hot-blooded! Everybody fighting!! Everybody's fired up!! I love it when things get hot!!"An eccentric first-year student from Shiketsu High. Despite being a fan of U.A, he turned down his admission and enrolled at Shiketsu.
- The Ace: Said to be a first-year student with special recommendations and top grades, which puts him on par with Todoroki. In the first part of the Provisional Hero License Exam, he passes the first stage by eliminating 120 participants at once using his wind Quirk. To top it all off, he only needed to eliminate two to pass.
- Badass Longcoat: His hero suit has a particularly awesome one.
- Blow You Away: His Quirk, which when first displayed, created a huge whirlwind.
- Broken Pedestal: Towards Endeavor. A flashback shows that when he was a kid, he tried to ask him for an autograph, but he was shoved away and Endeavor said "Stay out of my way", with eyes filled with rage. This went against Yoarashi's own philosophy of what a hero should be, leading him to think Endeavor was a poor example of a hero.
- The Cape: The type of hero that Yoarashi inspires to be, which is what causes him to dislike Endeavor and Todoroki.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Of the between arcs variation. Compared to previous antagonists, Yoarashi is the nicest, funniest one, especially compared to the previous arc, that had All For One as the Big Bad. Considering how this arc is supposed to be a bit of a breather, following the very intense Hideout Raid arc, it makes sense.
- Death Glare: A very scary and shocking moment happens when he first spies eyes on Todoroki at the hero license exams. He completely flips from being all jovial and approachable to staring venom into Todoroki.
- Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: A variation with Todoroki's fire powers. When used simultaneously, the heat from Todoroki's flames will mess up Yoarashi's gusts of wind, while at the same time the gusts will make the flames lose intensity, power and direction. In essence, their powers cancel each other out.
- Establishing Character Moment: Butts in while the U.A. students are giving their cheer, just so he can join them in the "Plus Ultra". Then, after getting called out for it, his apology in reply is to bow so low and so hard, that he headbutts the pavement.
- Everyone Has Standards: He believes heroes should be Hot-Blooded beacons of hope and inspiration, and that cold Anti Heroes like Endeavor should have no place in the world of heroics, no matter how competent they are. Considering that Anti Heroes ARE shown as being terrible role models in the first place through Endeavor on MANY levels, he has a point.
- Graceful Loser: Even though he is clearly disappointed, he quietly accepts the fact he did not passed the Hero license Exam, stating he already suspected it. He even apologizes to Todoroki, feeling he made both of them fail.
- Hatedom: In-universe, he is part of Endeavor's. Todoroki implies that there are actually many who feel this way, and he understands why.
- Hero Worship: He seems to put everybody who is training to be a hero in very high regards, except for Todoroki (both father and son).
- Hot-Blooded: Is constantly shouting, and loves getting into the thick of the action when fighting other students, as shown during the Provisional Hero License Exam.
- Incoming Ham: In his debut, he sneaks into the crowd of Class A students and joins in on shouting their motto of "Plus Ultra!"
- Major Injury Underreaction: He bows to apologize so hard that he hits his head on the floor, and thus breaks the sidewalk, leaving his head badly bleeding. When someone points this out, he just says it's okay.Yoarashi: I'm bleeding? No worries! I freakin' love blood!
- My God, What Have I Done?: How he reacts, when Midoriya calls both him and Todoroki out on fighting against each other, rather than teaming up to actually try and pass the Provisional Hero License Exam.
- Nice Guy: He is actually very cool with everybody he meets. Again, except Todoroki.
- No Indoor Voice: He screams every sentence he speaks, rather than actually talking.
- One Degree of Separation: He already met both Todoroki and his father in the past. He was shoved away by Endeavor, who he had admired, when meeting him in person as a kid. Subsequently, during the special test to get into U.A High, Yoarashi actually tried to befriend Todoroki, but was shoved away again and called a nuisance by him. Todoroki didn't even remember Yoarashi from thereafter, since he hadn't been bothered even looking his way.
- One Sided Rivalry: Towards Todoroki; due to his belief that Todoroki is just like his father,a cold Anti-Hero not worthy of being a hero. Todoroki mostly seems apathetic towards these feelings, but as of Chapter 111, Yoarashi's words and attitude actually start pushing his buttons.
- Power Floats: He can use the gusts to make himself float, but this is also apparently connected to his boots.
- The Reveal: He hates Endeavor, who he believes to be too cold and hateful to be a hero. And this hate has since been passed to Shouto too.
- X Meets Y: Sero describes him as the square of the sum of Iida and Kirishima. That basically amounts to a guy who takes being manly far too seriously.
Camie (Himiko Toga)
"I want to learn... more about you."A strange girl with a shapeshifting Quirk, and a rather uncomfortable interest in Izuku.
- Action Girl: She can go toe-to-toe with Izuku in a physical fight, despite her lack of an offensive Quirk.
- Ambiguous Situation: After the reveal that Toga Himiko was disguised as Camie all along, we have no clue as to the fate of the real Camie, only that Toga has been "Camie" for three days. Its possible the real Camie is dead, or has been kidnapped.
- Don't Think, Feel: How she hides. She apparently just turns off her thinking and hides automatically. She is skilled enough at it, to the point of even lampshading how Izuku thought at first glance, that her Quirk was being able to disappear. Turns out that's just a bit of a lie. Considering it's not Camie in the first place and a shapeshifter in disguise.
- Foil: Of sorts for Uraraka. Both are interested in Izuku, but while Uraraka is a good friend of his, she holds an almost Yandere streak for him.
- Full-Frontal Assault: Does not make herself any clothes, even though she can, in order to distract her opponents.
- In the Back: She tries to eliminate Izuku while disguised as Uraraka, once he turns his back to her, when they're alone together. It doesn't work, though.
- Mistaken for Romance: After seeing her naked with Midoriya; Sero insinuates this to Kaminari and Mineta, who both gets extremely jealous(as does Uraraka, though to a lesser extent).
- The Mole: Is able to take the shape of Uraraka to get closer to Izuku, in order to eliminate him from the Provisional Hero License Exam. Also, she was Himiko Toga in disguise all along.
- Multilayer Façade: Not only does she pull off an Uraraka impersonation, "Camie" is another shapeshifted form of Toga, as she's stolen the blood from both these girls and ingested it, allowing her to take their forms at will, and currently pretending to be Camie.
- Nightmare Face: Gives a freaky smile while her disguise is melting off of her face.
- Please Put Some Clothes On: She has no problems going around streaking, much to Izuku's chagrin.
- Shape Shifter: She can take the appearance of other people, though that requires her not to wear any clothing in order to do so.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: After her disguise is foiled, she continues to attack Izuku, despite now being completely naked. When Izuku tells her to put some clothes on, she casually replies that she'll do it later.
- Something Only They Would Say: Izuku realizes her disguise due to her playing the Damsel in Distress; in a situation where the real Uraraka could, and more importantly, would easily save herself.
- Voice Changeling: Implied to sound exactly like Uraraka while impersonating her.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Her Quirk seems to be able to do this. Though apparently, it's in a way that covers her appearance in some kind of goo, within which she needs to go naked for. However, this quirk is actually Toga's.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: We don't see her after the first task. Justified, because it was actually Toga sneaking into the fray to steal a sample of Izuku's blood for herself, then when she succeeded in her task, she quietly slipped away from the Hero License Exam building, likely with the help of her shapeshifting to avoid sticking out. After chapter 114 we still have yet to know what happened to the real Camie.
"It's because every action, every gesture we do reflects the rich tradition that adorns Shiketsu High's name."Another student of Shiketsu High who has a Quirk, called "Meatball", that can mold people into lumps of flesh.
- And I Must Scream: Turns people into fully conscious, but physically contorted blobs.
- Bad Powers, Good People: Can control any flesh he touches, turning people into blobs. Despite these nasty-looking powers, he holds a serious, if elitist, view towards being a hero.
- Berserk Button: Pointing out how squinty his eyes are."My eyes are big and handsome!!"
- Body Horror: His Quirk allows him to manipulate his own body and anyone else's, as if it were hamburger meat.
- Broken Pedestal: Mentions that he respected U.A. High, but feels like Class 1-A is making a mockery of its reputation.
- Domino Mask: Wears one as part of his costume.
- Dick Dastardly Stops to Cheat: He could have easily passed the first stage in the Provisional Hero Licence Exam, but was more interested in taking out U.A, and thus ends up as the only Shiketsu student not to pass stage one.
- Foil: Like Bakugou, he is prideful and overconfident, but in a somewhat more intellectual way.
- In-Series Nickname: Kaminari has started to call him "Meat-senpai".
- Lovecraftian Superpower: His Quirk allows him to manipulate human flesh, which he can use to split apart his own body, and then use that to mold others into grotesque balls of flesh.
- Motive Decay: Rather than try and pass the first stage of the Provisional Hero License Exam, Seiji decides he'd rather ensure as many students as possible, especially U.A. students, fail. This ends up making him the only student from his school to fail stage one.
- No Ontological Inertia: He can only keep people stuck in their ball form as long as he's standing. If he takes too much damage, then it will undo his power.
- Pride: Seems to have a superiority complex, constantly being shown to enjoy insulting his opponents' intelligence, during battle.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He seems fond of giving these during fights. He gets it thrown back at him by Kaminari, after he manages to free both Bakugou and Kirishima, thanks to severely underestimating them.
- Smug Snake: With the eyes to match. His debut is almost exclusively comprised of badmouthing his opponents because he doesn't like the idea of just anyone getting a license now that the era is about to give way to a new generation of heroes. Unfortunately, it bites him in the ass very hard and he finds himself on the receiving end of criticism for being so much of an elitist that he didn't give anyone a chance to prove themselves.
- Threshold Guardian: Sees himself as this. He believes that, since the exam was made so only the creme de lá creme of the heroes in training can get a chance, he should use his quirk to make it as impossible as he can for anyone he comes in contact with to have a chance to pass. This means turning them all into blobs, so that they wouldn't be able to put up a fight. Ironically, this means he fails the actual Secret Test of Character which was to encourage young heroes to cooperate for the greater good.
- Token Evil Teammate: Downplayed, he's not evil at all, but it's made clear that he's the only one who mocks the other schools's students while his schoolmates wants to get along well.
- Underestimating Badassery: Towards both Bakugou and Kaminari. Though with Bakugou, he underestimates his intelligence, not accounting for the fact that he is indeed a Genius Bruiser. He winds up getting eliminated for it.
- You Fight Like a Cow: Spends more time actually taunting Bakugou than he actually does attacking him.
Shiketsu High’s Year 2 Class 1 class president. A student whose body is covered in long hair.
- Class Representative: Serves as this for his class, apparently chosen by the staff due to his grades and general conduct.
- Expy: Possibly to Cousin It.
- Nice Guy: He apologized to the U.A. students for Shishikura jerkassery.
- Only Sane Man: He does not seek to fight against Class 1-A, and actually proposes that they should have a good relationship, subverting Shiketsu's previous Unknown Rival status.
- Prehensile Hair: His Quirk.
- Hufflepuff House: Receives minimal characterization compared to U.A and Shiketsu, outside of the implications that it's not on quite the same level either of them.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: While they receive very little screen time during the license exam, it should be noted that like U.A. and Shiketsu the majority of the schools students passed the exam, they just don't have as many flashy players as Shiketsu and U.A.
Emi Fukukado — Ms. Joke
"You sound like you're in love. How gross!"A teacher from Ketsubutsu Academy that used to work at a hero office near Eraserhead's. Her Quirk Roaring Laughter forces others to laugh which impairs their cognitive and motor skills.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appears in Chapter 34, long before her official debut. This is Episode 20 in the anime. The one thing that's different between this appearance and her formal debut is that she has a gas mask on with smiley face filters, a sly nod to laughing gas.
- Contagious Laughter: What her Quirk appears to be.
- Cool Mask: A cute take on a gas mask with smileys on the filters. She uses it to complete her ensemble during formal hero gatherings and in the field, but leaves it off when she's in teaching mode and behaving casually.
- Expy: Her Quirk brings to mind The Joker if he had the ability to make people laugh without toxins. Her name seems to likewise reflect this, alongside her relationship with the brooding Eraserhead, not unlike the Joker's to Batman. The only difference between the characters is that she's female, a hero, and uses her powers to incapacitate instead of kill.
- Foil: To Aizawa, being a Genki Girl whose Quirk is based on laughter, while he is dark and gloomy while preferring quietude.
- Fun Personified: To contrast with Aizawa and his stoicism.
- The Gadfly: Literally her power. Her Quirk causes contagious laughter, which impairs her target's ability to move and think.
"The people here are all struggling to seize their dreams and ideals. All of that struggling... we're above that."A second year student at Ketsubutsu Academy. His initially friendly demeanor hides a somewhat sinister and calculating personality. His Quirk is "Shake".
- The Ace: Implied to be this for Ketsubutsu, having the strongest Quirk and being The Strategist. He was even able to fight through being paralyzed by Gang Orca's sonic cries.
- Always Someone Better: Implied that he is not as good as the other school aces, such as Todoroki and Yoarashi.
- Beneath the Mask: Late in the first competition, he begins to act more sadistically and like a jerk, to which another student then mentions how he is finally acting like himself. When Midoriya and Shindou interact later on, Midoriya lampshades his apparently sudden change in personality.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Comes off initially as very friendly and straightforward, but Bakugou is quickly able to see through his facade.
- Dishing Out Dirt: His Quirk is the power to make anything that he touches shake, thereby creating earthquakes.
- Dude In Distress: He almost gets hit by Todoroki's flames and Yoarashi's wind simultaneously, during which both are distracted arguing with each other, but Midoriya is able to save him.
- The Leader: The Ketsubutsu students seek out his advice when they realize time is running out.
- Heroic R.R.O.D.: The faster and more powerful the shaking is that he creates, then the greater the impact of the aftershocks upon his body.
- Meaningful Name: His first name, "You", means "vibration" or "tremor".
- Playing Possum: During the second stage of the License Exam, Shindou could actually still use his quirk after getting paralyzed by Gang Orca and was planning to ambush him with a counter attack, but then Todoroki and Yoarashi's fight almost got him caught in the crossfire.
A second year student at Ketsubutsu Academy. Her quirk is "Folding" which allows her to shrink inside of her self much in the same way a turtle does.
- All There in the Manual: Her name and quirk are only revealed in the volume extras
- Animal Motif: Her powers are based off a turtle, and she's compared to one in the volume extras.
- Cute Little Fang: a whole mouth full
- Fangirl: Of Todoroki as she asks for his autograph when first meeting him.
- Nice Girl: Her friendliness towards U.A. seems to be more genuine then You's.
A second year student at Ketsubutsu Academy. His quirk is "Harden" and he can make anything he rubs or kneads with his hands harder than concrete. Does not working on living people or animals though.
Isamu High SchoolA school that offers a hero course introduced in the second OVA
A hot head from Isamu and a fan of All Might. His quirk is "Zombie Virus", which turns people into Zombies.
- Fanboy: He's a fan of All Might.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Turns out he's not immune to his own Quirk if a victim of his bites him which indeed happens during the training exercise as he's trying to beat everyone.
- Not So Different: From Bakugou personality-wise. It's why they can't stand each other.
- Shout-Out: His name and powers are a reference to George A. Romero.
- Our Zombies Are Different: His quirk spreads the Zombie Virus through pink gas and is temporary, with bites from the zombies also spreading the infection. Fujimi can be infected by the virus via the zombie bites. The infected become chalk-white, lose their eyes, lose most function of their brains, gain Super Strength, gain a Zombie Gait, randomly use their Quirks, are Nigh Invulnerable, can be fooled into thinking someone is a zombie, and retain some aspect of their personality (Habuko's friendship for Tsuyu, Bakugou's hatred for Romero).
- Zombie Apocalypse: He can create a man made one by spreading pink gas around the area. The downside is that it's wildly uncontrollable and he isn't immune to it's effects either. Luckily the effect is only temporary and the victim will return to normal after a set of time.
Kashiko Sekigai — Sensor Girl
Dadan Tadan — Lucky Strike
- Mini-Mecha: Wears one that covers everything except his face.
- Voiced by: Maaya Uchida
A character exclusive to Tsuyu's side-story. A female high-school student with a snake head and a paralyzing Quirk. She is Tsuyu's best friend from middle school. Habuko chose a different school than Tsuyu, but the two regularly stay in contact over instant messaging.
- Animal Jingoism: Present in her name (Snake and Mongoose) and her initial relationship with Tsuyu, a frog girl.
- Ascended Extra: She was created as Tsuyu's friend from middle school in an extra flashback chapter, but comes back in animated form for the "Training of the Dead" OVA.
- Face of a Thug: Even scarier, the face of a snake. This is why she had such a hard time making friends growing up. Tsuyu was her first real friend.
- Friendless Background: Just like Tsuyu.
- Ironic Name: Her name means "Snake", and that surname needs no further comment. In the end, it all serves to symbolize a contrarian theme.
- Non-Mammalian Hair: Her reptilian features do not prevent her from having a full head of Messy Hair.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Has a hyper-realistic snake head.
- Odd Friendship: A snake-girl being best friend with a frog-girl. Midoriya even points out that this shouldn't happen in nature.
- The Paralyzer: Her Quirk allows her to paralyze anyone she glares at for 3 seconds.
- The Power of Friendship: Her friendship towards Tsuyu is strong enough that it keeps Zombie Habuko from harming Tsuyu.
- Reptiles Are Abhorrent: At first. Turns out she just wanted to have friends.
- Snake People: She has a snake head.
- Stalker Without a Crush: Prior to being best friend with Tsuyu, Habuko had been following her for quite a while, sometimes even using her Quirk on her.
- Tears of Joy: When Tsuyu finally stopped her and asked if they could be friends, Habuko teared up. Seeing a snake actually cry is remarkably softening to the heart.
