Inasa Yoarashi — Gale Force
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 aspires to be, which is what causes him to dislike Endeavor and Todoroki.
- 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.
- Graceful Loser: Even though he is clearly disappointed, he 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.
- 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.
- Pinch Me: When he sees Endeavor in a rare moment of sincerity, Inasa has to knock the shit out of himself to process it.
- 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.
"This is gonna be mad lit!"
A female student from Shiketsu high. She first appeared during the hero license arc, but it was later revealed that Camie had been replaced by the Villain Alliance member Toga Himiko. She appears again during the hero license retake arc but this time as the real her. She has a..."bubbly" personality. Her Quirk is called "Glamour", with which she can create temporary illusions.
- Absolute Cleavage: It doesn't look like she has on a bra underneath her barely-zipped jacket, and you can see her bust and furrow. Dress code violation much?
- All Women Are Lustful: Camie REALLY wants a boyfriend, but her school's rules don't allow students to have romantic relationships.
- Ambiguous Situation: After the reveal that Himiko Toga was disguised as Camie all along, we had no clue as to the fate of the real Camie, only that Toga has been "Camie" for three days. Upon her return to the manga nearly a year later it was revealed that she had been kept unconscious somewhere, and released when Toga was finished with her work. Camie has no recollection of the 4 days she had been gone.
- Brainless Beauty: She has a cute face, very full lips, and a curvy figure... but is said to be a total imbecile.
- Breath Weapon: Her illusions seem to be created from the air in her lungs.
- The Chew Toy: Nothing seems to go right for Camie in her debut arc. She gets drugged before the license exams and wakes up thinking she took them, only to learn she didn't. Not because she's a failure, but out of necessity, Camie is sent away to the remedial class so what happened to her can be better studied and Camie can have a chance to actually prove herself. Gang Orca thinks she's no good and fellow classmate Seiji regards her as an idiot. Then she meets a group of little kids as part of her training and unwittingly gets the girls turned against her and calling her a hussy, realizing they're already at that age where they've developed strong feelings for boys and the accompanying jealousy streaks.
- Cloudcuckoolander: She has always been something of a strange girl, speaking with heavy internet slang, and being rather blase about having been kidnapped for 4 days. Seiji even thinks that's why she was targeted because it's hard to tell if someone who is always strange, is acting weird.
- Collared by Fashion: Camie wears a collar with belt hoops and a ring-hole studded belt around her neck. Combined with the ample endowments and the police-like uniform and she causes a few heads to turn.
- Foreshadowing: During the first license exam Camie is shown taking notice of Inasa's head wound after it begins bleeding. This proves to be the first hint that she's actually being impersonated by the blood-obsessed Himiko Toga.
- Friend to All Children: Camie loves kids, and even after making the little girls jealous at first she becomes good friends with them.
- Innocent Fanservice Girl: She doesn't realize that some of the things she does come off as sexy. Camie is noticeably well-endowed for her young age and the open collar on her jacket makes it a bit more obvious. It also doesn't help that her outfit (a sexy version of a police uniform with that jacket, tight pants and very tall boots) is very much in line with the attire of a Dominatrix, she accidentally subjects a little boy to Marshmallow Hell, and a young girl spanks her noticeably large behind when she's angry at Camie. Also, Toga posed as her while naked.
- Marshmallow Hell: She accidentally smothered one of the Masegaki School boys in between her cleavage, which led to him silently freaking out and blushing and Camie instantly pissing off all the little girls envying her.
- Master of Illusion: Her Quirk, "Glamour", allows her to create illusions.
- Mistaken for Romance: After seeing Toga!Camie naked with Midoriya; Sero insinuates this to Kaminari and Mineta, who both gets extremely jealous, as does Uraraka, though to a lesser extent.
- Nice Girl: The real Camie may be a ditz and use gyaru slang non-stop, but she's never been shown to be anything other than a sweetheart.
- Not Herself: Camie's classmates at Shiketsu noticed she was acting funny during the exams and eventually figured out the real one had been drugged with a narcotic and was out for about four days while Toga impersonated her. Toga chose Camie because she had an easy personality to mimic, but a little of Toga's own dark side shone through and left a few warning flags for those interacting with her. Not to mention that Toga's Quirk differs from Camie and she paraded around without clothes on as Camie, which is a glaring warning sign itself. However, the fact that a shape-shifter is posing as an illusionist is rather convenient enough for her to pass her own Quirk's appearance and features off as the effects of one of Camie's illusions.
- So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Camie winds up taking the remedial course for the Provisional Hero License alongside Inasa, Bakugou, and Todoroki due to her missing the actual exam thanks to Toga assuming her identity. The four our tasked with looking after hyperactive class of little kids. Camie ends up unintentionally attracting all the boys in the class while the girls treat her with scorn and start Slut-Shaming her. This, from very little kids.
- Verbal Tic: She uses loads of stereotypical new age chat slang like "LOL" and "lit" in one of the fan translations.
- 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. 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. Neither the end of the exam arc nor its immediate aftermath reveal what happened to the real Camie. It wouldn't be revealed what happened to her until 60 chapters later.
"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.
- 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.
- Clint Squint: Seiji has narrow eye slits that make him look shifty. He's very sensitive about it.
- Domino Mask: Wears one as part of his costume.
- In-Series Nickname: Kaminari has started to call him "Meat-senpai".
- Large Ham: In the remedial classes, we see he gets carried away with lecturing people all the time, especially Camie.
- 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.
- 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 Shishikura 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.
- Nice Guy: He apologized to the U.A. students for Shishikura's 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 allows him to control all the hair throughout his body for combat and restraining foes.
- Shout-Out: Possibly to Cousin Itt, but more likely Chewbacca, given Horikoshi's love of Star Wars references.
- 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.

"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.
- Contagious Laughter: Her quirk, which forces people to laugh, hindering their ability to fight back.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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: Takes on this role mainly in her interactions with Aizawa.
- Ship Tease: Played with but ultimately subverted, as the fact that she keeps trying to hit on Aizawa makes it painfully clear that she is only trying to get a reaction out of him.
- Shout-Out: 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.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She's an aquamarine-headed heroine.
"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.
- 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.
- Bishōnen: According to Word of God.
- 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 allows him to create vibrations, one application of this is to create earthquakes by spreading massive vibrations through the ground.
- 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 surname contains the characters for "truth" (真) and "temple" (堂), and is homophonous with "vibration" (振動). His given name means "shake."
- 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.
- 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.
Voiced by: Ryohei Kimura
A hot head from Isamu and a fan of All Might. His quirk is "Zombie Virus", which turns people into Zombies.
- Bad Powers, Good People: His Quirk is described as "troublesome" and would be more fitting for a villain but he's still studying to become a hero.
- Fanboy: He's a fan of All Might.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Turns out that even 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 - he too will suffer from its effects.
- Not So Different: From Bakugou, personality-wise, at least. It's why they can't stand each other.
- 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 himself can be infected by the virus via zombie bites. The infected become chalk-white, lose their eyes, along with most functions of their brains, gain Super Strength and 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).
- Shout-Out: His name and powers are a reference to George A. 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 amount of time.
Kashiko Sekigai — Sensor Girl
Kashiko Sekigai — Sensor Girl
Voiced by: Asami Yoshikawa
A student from Isamu introduced in the second OVA. Her Quirk, "Chart", allows her to create a holographic page that tracks enemies.
- Class Representative: She certainly has the stereotypical look down pat. She and Momo bond over the fact that they have students who make the job a lot harder then it needs to be.
- Flat Character: She's given very little in personality, outside of being a Class Representative. She's basically just the Isamu version of Momo.
- Goggles Do Nothing: Her visor doesn't seem to do anything, as it isn't really necessary for her quirk to work.
- Sensual Spandex: Her costume is skintight.
- Tracking Device: Her Quirk makes her a living one of these.
- White-Haired Pretty Girl: A very light purple color.
Dadan Tadan — Lucky Strike
Dadan Tadan — Lucky Strike
Voiced by: Kei Minegishi
A student from Isamu introduced in the second OVA.. His Quirk is called "Flash Sweat", though what it does is not known.
- Bandage Mummy: A extremely exaggerated example. By the end of the second OVA, his entire body is covered in bandages, even his hair.
- Flat Character: He only appears in the second OVA and is given a minimum of characterization.
- Mini-Mecha: Wears one that covers everything except his face.
- Nervous Wreck: He spends most of his screemtime sweating buckets and during training he freaks out when he's told to fight Bakugo.
- Overly Nervous Flop Sweat: Has this alot. Possiably jusstified, his Quirk is called "Flash Sweat" which could have something to do with it.
- Shrinking Violet: He appears to be very shy around new people, only speaking to introduse himself or apologise for Fujimi's behavior.
Voiced by: Maaya Uchida
A female high-school student with a snake head and a paralyzing Quirk exclusive to Tsuyu's side story, she is Tsuyu's best friend from middle school. Habuko chose a different school than Tsuyu, which in the anime is a hero school, 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.
