* TheCommissionerGordon: He fills out All Might's paperwork for him and the two are constantly exchanging information on ongoing crime.

to:

* ByTheBookCop: He's a firm believer in following the law and is tough on Vigilantes like Peter as a result. This belief was enforced by something terrible that happened to [[MyHeroAcademiaIllegalsMainCharacters the Crawler]].
* TheCommissionerGordon: He fills out All Might's paperwork for him and the two are constantly exchanging information on ongoing crime. He's also shown working with Endeavor on the Mysterio case.


Added DiffLines:

* LivingLieDetector: This is the name and function of his Quirk verbatim. So long as he's in the vicinity of someone, he'll get a mental ping whenever they lie. This makes him exceptionally good at getting information out of crooks, as he'll be able to sift the truth from the lies as long as he can keep his suspect talking. But it doesn't work if the speaker genuinely believes that they are telling the truth. [[spoiler:So when Peter fesses up and [[CassandraTruth honestly tells him everything he knows]], Tsukauchi and Endeavor mostly write him off as a mental ward escapee.]]
* NiceHat: A beige fedora like the detectives from old noir movies.

!!Inko Midoriya
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #1: What If?
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mha_inko_midoriya.png]]

Izuku's mom. Inko has spent the most time raising him while her husband works overseas in the United States to send money home.
----
* AdultFear:
** She had no idea how to support Izuku after finding out he was Quirkless and put on weight from the stress of watching him grow up tormented from having what amounts to a genetic disability totally outside of his or her control.
** Her dutiful and responsible son suddenly ditches school after getting the superpowers he wanted his whole life and doesn't come home on time. After he doesn't respond to her worried texts, she sees him run straight up to a highly dangerous Villain and known murderer on live television when the Pro Heroes fail to protect him. It's little wonder she's a bawling mess once he gets home.
** She's aware of her son's new fame as the "Prowler Kid" and is worried that people might try to exploit him for it.
** She knows her son is lying to her about his nightly excursions and wonders what he's doing when she isn't around, especially when his fame could be dragging him into less savory hobbies.
** After her son gets into the school of his dreams, she balks when [[spoiler:he's interrogated by the principal about the true nature of his abilities as if he's some kind of criminal.]] She goes so far as to threaten to pull him out and tells off U.A. for doing this to him.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: She constantly frets over Izuku's well-being and was apparently a FormerTeenRebel. Izuku quickly decides that the less he knows about his parents' younger years the better.
* DotingParent:
** She clearly care for Izuku's well-being. They cry OcularGushers after he wakes up from his short coma and Hisashi rushes to Japan after learning of his son's condition. Izuku loves his parents and calls Inko the best mom in the world.
** Inko worries for Izuku when she got a call from the school saying that he ditched class. Rather than reprimand him for it, her first texts asked "where are you?", "please call me?", and "are you heading home?"
** Once she learns about his "Quirk", she fully supports his ambitions to become a Hero. Rather than reprimand him for staying up all night to study, she gently reminds him to go back to bed and drapes some covers over him to keep him from getting a cold.
** She avoids MyBelovedSmother by trusting Izuku to make his own decisions, but can't help but worry if he's going through a teen rebel phase when he starts lying to her about where he's going after school. [[spoiler:When she learns he's been keeping her LockedOutOfTheLoop, she reprimands Nezu for interrogating him and simply asks Izuku not to lie to her anymore.]]
* {{Foil}}: To Mitsuki. Inko is a timid and highly emotional woman who is ever-present in Izuku's life. He holds her in the highest esteem and the two are extremely close. The fiery Mitsuki is constantly away at work and never really got to know her son. He's constantly disrespecting her and she only manages to keep him in line through shouting and violence.
* FormerlyFit: She used to be much slimmer, but the stress of raising Izuku made her gain weight.
* FormerTeenRebel: She admits that she did some wild things growing up as a teenager. This is why she worries Izuku is going out to smoke or meet a girl when he lies to her about where he goes at night. [[spoiler:When Nezu asks if her husband broke the law, she tells him no, as ''she'' was the rule-bender when they were younger.]]
* {{Housewife}}: She's left to care for her son while her husband works overseas.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Izuku doesn't let her in on his training sessions with Peter or the true nature of his powers to keep her from fretting over him. When she catches him snoring into an open-faced textbook, she wonders why he's reading stuff that clearly isn't high-school level. [[spoiler:She's stunned when she learns that his powers don't come from a Quirk and feels terrible that her son was afraid that she'd call him a freak because of them.]]
* MindOverMatter: Her Quirks lets her move small objects.
* OcularGushers: Inko sobs uncontrollably once Izuku wakes up from his coma. His attempts to help her calm down only make him cry too.
* ParentsAsPeople: She failed to properly support Izuku after he learned that he was Quirkless, simply hugging him and proclaiming how sorry she was when all he wanted was for someone to tell him that he could be a Hero. After learning about his new powers, she wholeheartedly supports his goal to make up for her past failings.
* PostStressOvereating: She started overeating from the stress of raising Izuku after he learned he was Quirkless and not knowing what to do to make him feel better.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: Inko and Izuku are both highly emotional, timid, and caring. Their OcularGushers when they're happy or sad are a sight to behold.
* StunnedSilence: She doesn't know what to say when Izuku demonstrates his WallCrawling powers to her for the first time. After several agonizing minutes of silence, she decides on crying TearsOfJoy.
* TenderTears: She's sobbing when she sees Izuku rushing straight at a known murderer on television and is still crying by the time he gets home.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Inko is a beautiful woman even after she began gaining weight. She's kind, mature, responsible, and doting on her son. While she doesn't have the dark hair associated with the trope, her hair is dark green.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is dark green like her son.
* YourFavorite: She promises to make her son katsudon once he gets back from the hospital. His newfound appetite makes him devour several bowls of it before he's satisfied.

[[folder:Hisashi Midoriya]]
!!Hisashi Midoriya
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #1: What If?
Izuku's dad. He's always away at work overseas and rarely has time to visit home. When he does come home, he always makes his presence felt.
----
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Izuku is mortified by Hisashi's [[RummageSaleReject casual wardrobe]] and decides that the less he knows about Hisashi's college years the better.
* AscendedExtra: Downplayed. Hisashi actually comes to visit his son in the hospital after the spider bite. He cares enough to bring Izuku sweets, comic book, and movies while making sure he's okay, but Hisashi has to return overseas not long afterward. Izuku also makes mentions of his dad, which he ''never'' does in the manga.
* RummageSaleReject: His casual clothes include a pink shirt with "JUICY" written across the back and sweatpants that have "BIG BOY" written on it.
* PunnyName: His name is a pun off, "hisashiburi", or "it's been a while", which is customary to say after you haven't seen someone in a long time. Sure enough, Hisashi is rarely home and is mostly mentioned in passing.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dr. Tsubasa]]
!!Dr. Tsubasa
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #1: What If?
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dr_tsubasa.png]]

The doctor who diagnosed Izuku as Quirkless, changing his life forever. They meet again when Izuku is bitten by a spider, overseeing his treatment and admonishing him for continuing to chase his impossible dream.
----
* BearerOfBadNews: He's the one who told Izuku that he's Quirkless.
* BrutalHonesty: Dr. Tsubasa tells a four-year-old Izuku in no uncertain terms that he should give up his dream of becoming a Hero. When they meet again ten years later, Tsubasa admonishes Izuku for continuing to cling to that dream and says he should be looking to become a police officer instead.
-->'''Tsubasa:''' You should probably give up, already.
* ContrivedCoincidence: The doctor who crushed Izuku's hopes and dreams by telling him he was Quirkless and that he should give up on being a Hero happens to be treating him for his spider bite. [[spoiler:It's implied that this ''wasn't'' a coincidence when it's revealed that he's been keeping samples of Izuku's blood.]]
* LabcoatOfScienceAndMedicine: Wears one and is a doctor.
* LennonSpecs: Wears dark green ones with brown frames.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: It turns out that [[spoiler:he secretly kept several vials of Izuku's blood and plans to "change the world" with it.]]
* SmallRoleBigImpact: His diagnosis changed Izuku's life up to the point that he was bitten by the spider.
* YouAreACreditToYourRace: Dr. Tsubasa is impressed that the immune system of a Quirkless kid like Izuku managed to weather out the spider's venom with no adverse long-term effects. Izuku is naturally hurt by yet another reminder of his Quirklessness, but [[InnocentlyInsensitive Tsubasa doesn't seem to notice]]. Given his BrutalHonesty to Izuku ten years ago and repeated insistence that Izuku find other work, he likely doesn't care.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Seto]]
!!Seto
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #5: Learning Curve

The mustachioed cashier of a costume shop. Izuku stops by Seto's store as it's the only one around with a Spider-Man costume in stock.
----
* TheCameo: He's the story's equivalent of a Stan Lee cameo, complete with sunglasses and slicked back hair.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: He remarks that Spider-Man is his favorite and is pleasantly surprised when Izuku decides to purchase that particular costume, asking him if he likes going old-school.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mitsuki Bakugou]]
!!Mitsuki Bakugou
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #5: Learning Curve
[[quoteright:300:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mitsuki_bakugou.png]]

Bakugou's mom. Like her son, she's fiery, strong, and confident with zero tolerance for people who disrespect her. But she wants the best for him and is dismayed to learn how sour his attitude has gotten while she was busy at work.
----
* AbusiveParents: She tends to discipline her son with brute force and massive earfuls, neither of which have particularly endeared her to him.
* AdaptationExpansion: Mitsuki is given a backstory here: born into a Burakumin family in a rough neighborhood and wanted out so her child could live free of the stigma that comes with it.
* AlmightyMom: Her word is law in the Bakugou household and Izuku notes that Katsuki wouldn't act up when they hung out at his house while she was around. But her influence seems to have waned by the time he's a teenager, as he gets into shouting contests with her and frequently disrespects her, not that her tendency for corporal punishment helps matters.
* DistaffCounterpart: Appearance-wise, she's a female and older version of her son, complete with fiery temper.
* DoesntKnowTheirOwnChild: She spends long hours at work and doesn't pry into Katsuki's social life. Because of this, she doesn't understand just how poor his attitude has gotten or that he has no real friends until she speaks with Izuku for the first time in a decade.
* DopeSlap: Often gives these to Katsuki whenever he's acting up.
* EmbarrassingTattoo: She has an old tattoo that she got when she was 16 as part of a RiteOfPassage in the rough neighborhood she grew up in. She tends to keep it covered up due to the stigma against them in Japan and is surprised when Izuku says it looks good on her.
* {{Foil}}:
** To Inko. Inko is a timid and highly emotional woman who is ever-present in Izuku's life. He holds her in the highest esteem and the two are extremely close. The fiery Mitsuki is constantly away at work and never really got to know her son. He's constantly disrespecting her and only manages to keep him in line through shouting and violence.
** To Katsuki. While they both possess similar temperaments, Katsuki was born into a stable, upper middle-class household thanks to his mom's efforts and grew up with constant adoration and praise for his talents. Mitsuki was born into a Burakumin family, growing up in a rough neighborhood and being targeted for discrimination until she clawed her way out. She also admits her mistakes and is friendly to those she cares about, compared to her son's tendency to backpedal into old habits when his ego is bruised.
* FormerTeenRebel: She implies that she was part of some rough gangs growing up, as indicated by her tribal tattoo, which she finds more embarrassing than anything.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Downplayed. She's got sandy blond hair like her son, but is a warm and friendly woman who happily offers Izuku a ride home and worked hard to secure a good life for her family. However, she has a nasty temper and a tendency to get physical when her son is acting up.
* OppositesAttract: Mitsuki is a fiery and strong woman but calls her husband Masaru a wet blanket by comparison.
* ParentalNeglect: Mitsuki worked hard to earn a better life for herself and her family, but her busy work life left little time for her to spend time with or get to know her son. Because of this, she's oblivious to how badly Izuku's and her son's relationship has deteriorated and believes they're still close until Katsuki throws a fit in the car.
* ParentsAsPeople: She deeply loves her son and husband, but is so busy at work that she isn't as much of an influence in her son's life as she wants to be. She's dismayed at how she let him become such a domineering {{Jerkass}} and pleads with Izuku to not give up on him. Her discipline usually consists on yanking on her son's ear and shouting at him, which contributes to his lack of respect for her.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Zigzagged. She's warm and friendly to Izuku and congratulates him on getting his Quirk and for his bravery during the Prowler incident. But she tends to get physical during her spats with her own son.
* SelfMadeWoman: She worked hard to build up the financial and social clout necessary to shed the stigma of being born into a Burakumin family because she didn't want her child to grow up with the same prejudice she faced.
* StacysMom: The first thing that strikes Izuku after seeing her for the first time in years is how stunningly beautiful she is.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Katsuki is practically a gender-flipped carbon copy of her.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: She gives one to Katsuki after she finds out just how horrible and petty he is to Izuku.
-->'''Mitsuki:''' So that's it, huh? You got pissed that something didn't go the way you thought it did and decided to beat up someone for it? Like a spoiled little brat? ''[glares at him]'' You goddamn idiot! You want to blow your shot at being a Hero? Huh? You want to throw a temper-tantrum whenever the world doesn't go your way!? Welcome to reality, brat! The world doesn't bow to you! You keep at this, then you're just going to become a friendless has-been who blew his opportunity for a successful life because he…!\\

!!Ouka Oosawagi
!!!'''Debut:''' Sidestory - Anything for a Top Story
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ouka_oosawagi.PNG]]

A reporter for a news network that reports on Heroes. She's fallen on hard times due to her inability to get U.A. to open up to her while her rivals get easier, juicier materials. After being assigned to cover the Spider-Man vigilante, she decides to abuse a provision in her contract to jumpstart her career.
----
* BadBoss: She's demanding and demeaning towards her unpaid intern and asking what they're paying him if he's dragging his feet to get her latte. She also keeps calling her cameraman Joey when his real name is Jonouichi, a nickname the man clearly dislikes and it’s hinted this is not the first time he reminded her what his real name is.
* CigarChomper: She's a fan of the Cuban cigars her husband brings her and smokes one while trying to come up with a way to drive up her view count.
* {{Expy}}: Of J. Jonah Jameson. She's a cigar-chomping, HappilyMarried reporter who writes sensational stories about Spider-Man for personal profit.
* GonzoJournalism: She resorts to this to start getting views and clicks by spreading conspiracy theories about the Spider-Man and the Spider-Man villain copycats. However, she makes no illusions that what she's saying is her opinion, but she figures that if she can't make the vigilante famous with an exclusive interview, she'll make him ''infamous.''
* HappilyMarried: She's happily married to her husband Taiju and laments that her work leaves her unable to see him until late at night.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She's a nameless background extra in the original My Hero Academia, but she's given a name here.
* OCStandIn: She only appears for a few seconds in the original My Hero Academia as an excited reporter. Here she's given traits similar to the Raimi version of JJJ.
* ProudBeauty: She's confident in her looks and practiced how to look serious without scrunching up her features to avoid ruining her appearance.
* PunnyName: Her last name, "Oosawagi", means clamor or uproar, referencing her loud and demanding personality.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatPerks: Her Quirks render her immune to nicotine addiction and most forms of cancer, which lets her smoke all she wants.

The story's protagonist and primary viewpoint character. Izuku was originally of
org/pmwiki/pub/images/naomasa_tsukauchi.png]]

All Might's closest friend on
the unlucky 20 percent of the population to be born Quirkless, meaning that force, he didn't have any superpowers to his name. Despite this, he always wanted to be a Hero like his idol, All Might, and clung to his dream even when everyone thought it was impossible. In a twist of fate. he gains the proportionate abilities of a spider when he ventures down an alleyway instead of a shady underpass. Now armed has been trusted with the powers he needs to achieve his dreams, he's set to become one his world's strangest and some of All Might's greatest Heroes, Spider-Man!secrets and helps organize the investigation into Mysterio and the Prowler.



* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Downplayed. Izuku doesn't become rude or obnoxious, but he goes on a little power trip during the U.A. Entrance Exam because of his continued success, bouncing around with a smug little grin on his face and soaking in the oohs and aahs of the competition he's running circles around. He even stops punching robots to chat with Jirou and Sero, which Iida calls him out on as insulting to the people who are trying their hardest.
* AdaptationalBadass: Zigzagged. He doesn't have the raw power of One For All at his disposal, but Izuku's spider powers have none of the drawbacks his Quirk-using counterpart faced. He's just as fast and agile as when canon Izuku is using One For All: Full Cowl, but he can't simply be knocked out of it because it's a natural part of his biology. In addition, he's far stronger than canon Izuku when the latter isn't using 100%, easily lifting a fridge and carrying a maximum of ten tons when One For All-using Izuku struggled to lift a single steel beam with one hand.[[note]]The average steel beam weighs about 400 pounds.[[/note]]
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: He's more of a DeadpanSnarker here and more obviously resentful of the people around him who mocked him for being Quirkless, in large part fueled by having Peter Parker, one of the kings of snark, as his mentor. This isn't always a good thing, as he talks back to Iida on reflex when the latter calls him out just before the practical part of the U.A. Entrance Exam and worries about alienating a future classmate.
* AdaptationRelationshipOverhaul: Izuku was never attacked by the Sludge Villain due to turning down the alleyway, so he never spoke with All Might. Because of this, the two of them are strangers at the start of the story. While All Might does arrive to give Izuku a nice pep talk that spurs Izuku to accept Peter's tutelage, neither of them know the other's greatest secret.
* AdaptationalSuperpowerChange: Izuku doesn't receive One For All in this story. Instead, he's bitten by a spider and gains the proportionate strength, speed, agility, and toughness of one as well as {{Intangibility}}, a SpiderSense, and [[ShockAndAwe his Venom Strike]].
* {{Adorkable}}: Izuku is a shy, easily flustered, embarrassingly polite and sweet young man. He's a bit of a NervousWreck who's easily startled and simply alluding to the effects of puberty, namely growing hair in unfamiliar places, is enough to make him turn bright red. The thought of having a "Quirk" at all makes him want to dance on his desk from joy and excitement (which would have been similar to Peter's infamous dance in ''Film/SpiderMan3''). He's also a Hero nerd to the nth degree and can't help but {{Squee}} when he meets a cool Hero. When he's finally speaking with All Might face-to-face, the first thing that comes out of Izuku's mouth is "I love you!" to Izuku's mortification.
* AffirmativeActionLegacy: Downplayed. Izuku is a Japanese Spider-Man when compared to his Caucasian mentor, Peter Parker. As comic readers know, Izuku is ''far'' from the [[Manga/SpiderMan first]] [[Series/SpiderManJapan Japanese]] [[http://www5c.biglobe.ne.jp/~spa-girl/49789931/ Spider-Man]] in the multiverse.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer:
** As the only Quirkless kid in class, Izuku is horrendously bullied or at best pitied by his classmates. Even when he nearly dies from a spider bite, Izuku knows they only sent him cards and visited him out of politeness, not even giving him the time of day once he returns to school. After he accidentally starts a fight with Bakugou, they're quick to let Izuku take the heat even if Bakugou started it and they egged them on.
** This is swiftly averted by the time he gets to U.A., as he has already made fast friends with Sero and Jirou. He also makes friends with Uraraka after helping her at the entrance exam and his powers impress everyone enough to draw their attention.
* AlternateCharacterReading: As per canon, Bakugou's MaliciousMisnaming for Izuku, "Deku", is derived from an alternate reading in the first character of Izuku's name. It means "wooden figure" or a "puppet" who can't do anything on his own, referencing Izuku's Quirklessness.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: As if the name Spider-Man wasn't obvious enough.
* AllWebbedUp: Izuku develops his own web-fluid formula with Peter's help and builds some prototype web-shooters to practice with. They're bulky and clunky-looking compared to Peter's due to being made from spare parts, but they're functional and get the job done.
* AppropriatedAppelation: Uraraka calls him Deku before she learns his real name, thinking it an AffectionateNickname because it sounds like "dekiru"[[note]]To be able to do something[[/note]], giving it a "can do it" vibe". Izuku ends up embracing it after hearing this.
* AscendedFanboy: A Quirkless, nerdy kid who wants to become a Hero more than anything gets his wish when a spider bite gives him the power to chase his dreams.
* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: Justified. English isn't Izuku's first language and he's never had to use it to actually talk to someone before. So his attempts to speak to Peter in English are somewhat stilted, broken, and awkward due to his lack of practice. He's also extremely apologetic in their first meeting because he electrocuted Peter a few minutes earlier. Izuku also lampshades this, cursing himself when he misses an article or says something wrong. It's also downplayed, since Izuku is mostly intelligible, even if he has to speak and listen slowly. The two decide to teach other their respective native tongues to overcome this. Izuku becomes almost completely fluent by the end of their ten-month training session, but Peter still corrects him from time to time, telling him to say "That's easy" instead of "Most easy".
-->'''Izuku:''' I am most sorry, sir! ''[bows apologetically]'' I have just received my Quirk, and have struck you without thought! I most humbly apologize!\\
'''Peter:''' ''[holding Izuku's phone]'' Kid, you don't...\\
'''Izuku:''' I humbly request for phone! We must notify hospital for your recovery and...
* AwesomeByAnalysis: Having spent his whole life studying the Quirks of others, he can easily pick apart the mechanics of a Quirk and all of their uses with only a little bit of information. He's also memorized all of Bakugou's moves, which lets Jirou get the drop on him.
* BadassAdorable: An {{Adorkable}} young man who struggles to talk to girls and nerds out over superheroes also has the SuperStrength to crush robots like tin cans and tear them apart with his bare hands.
* BadLiar: His mom quickly sees through most of his lies about where he's going at night, but doesn't bring it up with him until the night before the U.A. Entrance Exam because she wants to trust him and not hang over his shoulder all the time.
* BadPowersGoodPeople: Izuku's Venom Strike is activated by his feelings of resentment and desire to lash out at others for years of mistreatment. He's disgusted with himself when he realizes this, but Peter assures him that it's okay so long as he only uses it to help others.
* BaitAndSwitch: He uses this to get the upper hand against Peter while training to enter U.A. After getting his butt kicked for the past half hour, Izuku decides to change his strategy and charges straight at Peter, only to use his arm as a pivot once Peter catches it to kick him in the face.
* BetaOutfit: Much like Miles in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'', Izuku purchases a cheap Spider-Man costume to wear while practicing with Peter. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit well thanks to his new musculature. He can't zip up the back, it's tight around his crotch and rear, and the gloves are too small to be usable. Despite how silly it looks, Izuku feels proud to wear it as a super suit... until Peter doubles over and can barely keep himself from laughing at the sight.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[gloomy and thoroughly humiliated]'' I-I look most silly, do I not?
* BigEater:
** Inko is concerned when Izuku starts devouring plate after plate for breakfast on his first day back at school when he used to barely touch it. When he's done with everything she gave him, he proceeds to knock off the leftover eggs in the pan with a piece of toast. He downed four bowls of katsudon along with all the toppings and sides the night before. Izuku is equally surprised and worried about this development, but he tries to reassure his mom (and himself) with a grin before heading out. His new appetite is {{foreshadowing}} for his SuperStrength and other mutations. It also has basis in biology.[[note]]The average spider eats about 10 percent of its weight daily, meaning that the 150 pound Izuku would need to eat fifteen pounds of food to maintain his body's needs. Even excluding the spider aspects, muscle by definition uses additional calories, which is why human bodies are naturally inclined to limit muscle growth to conserve energy. Izuku's new HeroicBuild would require far more calories than his old GeekPhysique to sustain itself.[[/note]]
--->'''Inko:''' I'm actually surprised. ''[scoops eggs and ham onto her plate and Izuku's]'' You used to barely touch your food and now you're devouring it. I mean I heard of growing boys but honestly this is a shock.\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[nods]'' Yeah, for me too. ''[continues eating as Inko looks on worriedly]''\\
'''Inko:''' Are you sure you're alright, Izuku?\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[pauses as he thinks it over]'' Yeah. I am.
** After the U.A. Entrance Exam, he and Peter visit a Big Bang Burger and go for the eating challenge to save cash. The two of them easily wolf down a burger that's normally a challenge to finish in half-an-hour in minutes.
* BodyHorror: Any organic thing Izuku phases with him will fuse into a warm gelatinous blob with hairs growing out of the bones. He and Peter are lucky they tried this on ground meat first and not while Izuku was trying to rescue someone. The same goes for any organic things he phases through.
* BondVillainStupidity: A rare heroic example. When he and Jirou [[spoiler:ambush and tie up Bakugou with webbing, Izuku monologues about how he's going to be a hero and is not going to shrink under him anymore. While that's fine and dandy, all it does is piss Bakugou off enough to free himself shortly after Izuku and Jirou turn tail to get to the bomb when they could have simply wrapped the capture tape around him.]]
* BornUnlucky: Izuku is a literal case of this, being one of the relatively rare 20 percent of people to be born without a Quirk, leading to years of torment and derision from his classmates.
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Even after getting superpowers, Izuku's initial attempts at fighting amount to wild flailing that Peter can dodge with a completely bored look on his face. After months of hand-to-hand combat training, Izuku proves to be at least equal, if not superior to Bakugou in close combat, using a variety of punches, kicks, and acrobatics along with his SuperStrength and webbing to match Bakugou's explosive firepower.
* BuildingSwing: Izuku starts practicing how to web-swing after completing his own web-shooters. While he's hesitant at first, it soon comes naturally to him and he has the time of his life somersaulting and soaring through the air for the first time. At least until Peter knocks him out of the air with a well-placed rock to prepare him for incoming drones.
* BullyAndWimpPairing: This was his dynamic with Bakugou for years until Izuku's new spider powers shook things up.
* ButtMonkey: He’s on the receiving end of several gags involving his powers and is the butt of all sorts of jokes and slapstick.
* CannotTalkToWomen: Izuku isn't used to talking to girls because most would avoid him because he was Quirkless or because they thought he was weird because of his FanBoy tendencies. He's at a loss for words when Jirou strikes up a conversation with him.
-->'''Jirou:''' Uh… you okay, man?\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[thinking]'' Oh, crap, she must think I'm weird! Okay Izuku, you need to be cool! Say anything before she starts backing away! ''[out loud]'' S-sorry. This is the first time I've talked to a girl! ''[thinking]'' You idiot! ''[out loud while sweating bullets]'' A-Ah! I-I didn't mean that! I mean, of course I've talked to girls but this is… um… I… ''[bows his head in shame]'' I-I'm sorry.
* CannotTellAJoke: The first joke Future Izuku cracks in the story is an awful {{Pun}} on web-swinging. It's implied to evoke a LamePunReaction from his listener(s). His teenage self also has a tendency to take Peter's jokes at face value.
* {{Capoeira}}: He uses spinning kicks from a crouched position while fighting Bakugou.
* CassandraTruth: Bakugou refuses to believe that Izuku's powers manifested out of nowhere and thinks Izuku has been hiding them for years despite his insistence otherwise.
* CentipedesDilemma: Izuku is hampered by his focus on the minute details of his powers while training with Peter, particularly when he's learning to use his web-shooters. Once he manages to relax and go with the flow, it begins to come to him more naturally.
* CharacterDevelopment: He's shy, nervous and constantly unsure of himself at the start of the story. After getting spider-powers and accepting Peter's tutelage, Izuku gradually become more social and cheerful despite his awkwardness. He also develops a propensity for snark and learns to stand up for himself when pushed, whether it's appropriate or not. His darker feelings of resentment and competitiveness come to the surface as well, telling himself that he's not going to hold back just to appease Bakugou's ego.
* CharacterNarrator: The story is primarily told from Izuku's point of view. He provides direct, first-person narration during lulls in the action and while transitioning between scenes.
* CharacterTics: Izuku tends to sweat when he's nervous and loudly but unintelligibly mumbles to himself when he's excited and/or deep in thought.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome:
** Izuku runs in to save Peter from the Prowler when no one else would. Even as his brain screamed at him to stop, he dodged all of the Pro Heroes' attempts to keep him away because he couldn't bear to watch someone die in front of him. He gets chewed out for this reckless stunt, but also gets praised for his wall-crawling and intangibility "Quirks". All Might also meets up with him to tell Izuku that this trait is what will make him an amazing Hero. RealityEnsues when the Prowler manages to nab him and threatens to run him through with her WolverineClaws for intervening.
** His first instinct when seeing the zero-point robot is to run as fast and far away as he can. But when he sees Uraraka pinned under rubble, he immediately makes an about face to run-in and help her.
* ClassicalAntiHero: Izuku is shy, nervous, scrawny, clumsy, and Quirkless at the start of the story. No one, not even himself, truly believes that he can become a Hero at first. His self-esteem is in the pits from years of bullying and he's frequently the laughingstock of everyone in class for wanting to become a Hero despite his DreamCrushingHandicap. Lampshaded by his future self in his narration.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[while discussing his TrainingMontage]'' I could've taken out a few self-help books to work through my deep-seated insecurities, crippling lack of self-esteem, and nonexistent social skills… But no. I decided to put that on the back burner and focus on some more practical things.
* ColorMotif: Green. Green hair, green eyes, green name, green bio-electricity e.t.c.
* CombatParkour: Peter teaches Izuku this over the course of their ten month training session. By the night before the exam, Izuku is effortlessly moonsaulting, spinning, WallRunning, {{Wall Jump}}ing, and soaring over each and every obstacle Peter can throw at him.
* ComboPlatterPowers: He has the proportionate strength, speed, durability, and agility of a spider, WallCrawling, as well as the ability to emit bio-electric shocks powerful enough to briefly stun Peter. He later discovers his ability to bleed through objects by turning into static and builds his own web-shooters. He also possesses incredible stamina, barely breaking a sweat when most others are panting and aching from exertion.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Peter is surprised to learn that Izuku has long since learned this lesson and is excited to learn how to help people as a superhero rather than trying to enrich himself.
* TheComicallySerious: Izuku sometimes has trouble taking a joke, taking Peter's comment about how gross his setules are at face value and apologizing for them. His future counterpart can spout lines like this:
-->'''Izuku:''' Side note, but I found out that Peter's 'incoming drone' exercise was pretty useful in the long run. Those mechanical monstrosities are truly the bane of the modern Hero's existence.
* CoolMask: The mask of his costume is equipped with an HUD that provides GPS and a Bluetooth connection as well as monitoring his web fluid levels. Unfortunately, it doesn't automatically adjust for light until Izuku remembers to set it up, which is long after he's made a fool of himself while running late to class.
* CompositeCharacter: Izuku is this of his canon counterpart and ComicBook/MilesMorales as depicted in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse''. He's got the history, motivation, and mindset of his canon counterpart, but his role as Peter's student, his Venom Strike ability, and confusion regarding alternate universes is taken from Miles. Izuku also shows the same appreciation for hip-hop Miles has, albeit it's considered "classical" in Izuku's time.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Izuku is astonished to learn that his great-great-grandparents had Quirks that would neatly explain his WallCrawling and {{Intangibility}} powers. This makes it a lot easier for him to pass off his new spider-powers as a Quirk to his mother, but he doesn't want to push his luck by demonstrating any of his other abilities.
* CoverBlowingSuperpower: While having superpowers is normal in Izuku's universe, having so ''many'' isn't, especially with how varied and seemingly unrelated his powers are. [[spoiler:U.A.'s faculty takes note of this during the exam and immediately figures out that he doesn't have a Quirk when his phasing power gives off readings unlike any the proctors have seen before.]]
* CowardlyLion: Izuku is naturally timid and easily startled, but he can be recklessly brave when other people's lives are on the line.
* CreepyGood: Calling back to Steve Ditko's horror days, the story's Fanfiction.net blurb refers to Izuku as the "world's strangest Hero" as Spider-Man. His wall-crawling and stunt where he nearly got hit by a car unnerved people present.
* CultureClash: He's horrified when Peter describes ComicBook/CivilWar to him and is astonished that Peter has had such a rough time with the police and the government. Having grown up in a world where superheroes were commonplace and widely-accepted, the miniature war the Marvel heroes started was unthinkable for Izuku.
* CuriosityIsACrapshoot: Izuku's decision to investigate the purple-clad figure is what got him bitten by the spider. On one hand, he got spider-powers. On the other, he was put into a coma for two days and nearly died.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: Izuku's green eyes match his hair.
* DeadpanSnarker: Izuku is genuinely sweet and polite, but he has his own streak of wittiness that he keeps to himself.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[referring to his punishment for ditching school]'' The fact that my 'Quirk' had just awakened probably convinced them to be more lenient. Lucky me.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Izuku's and Jirou's plan to defeat Bakugou during the exercise went off without a hitch and would have swung it in their favor... [[spoiler:if they remembered to wrap capture tape around him. Because of this, he's allowed to rejoin the fight and discovers that he can melt Izuku's webbing, turning the tide of the fight.]]
* DramaticStutter: Izuku stutters when he's nervous and sometimes when he's excited. He also tends to stutter when he lies. He chastises himself for this, as people will think he's brain damaged if all he does is stutter in front of them.
* DreamCrushingHandicap: Izuku has been tormented his whole life for wanting to be a Hero without a Quirk. On some level, he acknowledged that it really was impossible for him to reasonably become a Hero, but he didn't want to let it go. Luckily, one spider bite is all it takes to do away with this handicap.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: While dodging Bakugou's explosion in class, Izuku grips his desk hard as he ducks, accidentally smashing and crushing it to pieces. When Kamui Woods arrives to pick Izuku up, he accidentally puts the Hero's hand in a death grip before he's asked to ease up. After the Prowler incident, he accidentally pushes Bakugou all the way down the hallway while trying to avoid a fight and struggles to avoid snapping his pencils in half. Peter remedies this by making Izuku practice squeezing stress balls until he can grip one without permanently flattening it. He spends weeks destroying stress balls until he finally has a good grasp on his strength.
* DorkKnight: Izuku is sweet, kind, and polite to a T as well as horribly awkward in social situations. Even his future self, who has since become one of his world's greatest Heroes, has to beg the reader to stay when he starts to bore them with his Raimi-like opening.
* EmotionalBruiser: Izuku is a softie who cries whenever he's feeling emotional. Within a few minutes, he cried tears of shame for putting everyone in danger when he ran at the Prowler, TearsOfJoy when All Might tells him that he's going to be an amazing Hero, and regret again when he apologizes for not accepting Peter's offer earlier. He's also got enough Spider-Strength to crush a desk completely by accident and lift ten tons of equipment.
* EntertaininglyWrong:
** After realizing that he has gotten spider-powers from the spider bite, Izuku wonders if the spider was radioactive and comes to a reasonable (but wrong) conclusion.
--->'''Izuku:''' B-But how could a spider bite do this!? N-No wait, there was something wrong with that spider! Was the reason Prowler was tracking it because her employer was doing experiments on it?! Oh god... was it actually radioactive like the one from Spider-Man?! ''[eyes widen]'' Do I have cancer now?!
** Izuku is too shaken by all of the revelations Peter dropped into his lap to accept Peter's offer to mentor him right off the bat. He then places money on the table for their meal and for Peter to go get a bath before running out the door. When he finally stops, he wonders what Peter, who is homeless and lonely, must be thinking of Izuku for just ditching him. The answer?
--->'''Peter:''' Kid's smarter than I was at his age.
* {{Expy}}: Izuku is one of Peter, a BornUnlucky scrawny nerd who was granted amazing powers by a stroke of luck and uses them to help others rather than himself. Kōhei Horikoshi, the author of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', has said in an interview that Spider-Man's philosophy was the major inspiration for Izuku's. This story takes it one step further by making him Spider-Man.
* FaceYourFears: He forces himself to go jump off the more than 2,000-foot-tall Bespi Tower to get over his fear of heights. It works so well that he's excited to start jumping off buildings in the future.
* FamedInStory: Izuku becomes a local celebrity after the Prowler incident, getting called "Prowler Kid" on the street and people stop to take pictures with him. Izuku is unnerved by his new fame, as he's spent most of his life invisible when he's not being laughed at or beaten up. His fame at school only grows after he unintentionally humiliates Bakugou. He also understands that his newfound popularity is fleeting and is wary of people who want to use him for it.
* FanBoy: Izuku loves Heroes and wants to become one more than anything even though he's Quirkless.
* FirstPersonSmartass: Izuku is sweet and polite most of the time, but has a biting wit that he doesn't share with anyone else.
* FirstTimeFeeling: He's ecstatic when he realizes he isn't dreaming and that these new powers of his are here to stay, rendering years upon years of derision for being Quirkless meaningless.
* FlatWhat: Izuku's reaction to learning that the guy in the Spider-Man costume is Peter Parker.
* {{Foil}}:
** Peter and Izuku were scrawny nerds who were given the chance to become {{Action Hero}}es and are both motivated by their ChronicHeroSyndrome. Peter is a veteran who has been in the business for decades and has been ground down by everything he's lost in his crusade to help people. He's motivated by his failure to stop the crook who killed Uncle Ben, but that mantra has become far more bitter in recent years and he sometimes wishes he could just stop. Despite this, he's confident and great at what he does, hoping to keep Izuku from stumbling on his own path towards becoming a Hero. Izuku just got his powers and has no idea what he's doing. He has always wanted to be a Hero, having been inspired by All Might's example rather than personal tragedy. He's jittery and unsure of himself, wondering if he'd just be wasting Peter's time by becoming his student. Peter is also a [[YouFightLikeACow constant quipper]] and jokester, while Izuku CannotTellAJoke.
** To Bakugou. Izuku is the BornUnlucky NervousWreck who dreams of being a cool Hero whose smile could make others feel safe like All Might, but was stuck with his GeekPhysique and DreamCrushingHandicap until the spider bite. Bakugou is a BornWinner with smarts, athleticism, and a powerful Quirk. He primarily wants to become a Hero to prove how strong he is, as he admires the indomitable strength of All Might.
* ForegoneConclusion: The first "issue" ends with Izuku declaring that he becomes one of the world's greatest Heroes as Spider-Man.
* FormerlyFit: Inverted. Izuku went from scrawny nerd to muscled and athletic after the spider bite. He goes from being almost dead-last in P.E. to easily outpacing the naturally athletic Bakugou in almost every activity. His new physique also comes with stamina and energy he never had before, turning exercise that would have left him completely winded into a light workout. He needs to really push himself for him to feel tired at all, like carrying literal tons of equipment or lapping the city several times in a row.
* ForWantOfANail: The story begins when Izuku decides to turn down an alleyway rather than cross under a shady underpass. He gets bitten by a genetically-modified spider instead of attacked by the Sludge Villain, which sets him down a completely different path.
* GeekPhysique: Izuku's mom used to complain about how skinny he was and how he'd never touch his food. He was always one of the worst people in P.E. and Izuku himself acknowledges this. One spider bite is all it takes to give him a rock solid body that turns exertion that would have left him a sweaty mess into a light workout.
* GeniusBruiser: Peter schools Izuku in the ins-and-outs of being Spider-Man, making him absorb college-level material to design his own web-shooters and come up with his own web fluid formula.
* GreenEyedMonster: Downplayed. Izuku is rather jealous and resentful of people with Quirks after being ostracized as the only Quirkless kid around for years. He buries this resentment underneath his admiration for Heroes, but it leaks out in his internal dialogue until he gains his spider-powers. Bonus points for having actual green eyes.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Has this relationship with Jirou while they're paired up in the Heroes vs. Villains exercise. His spider-powered physical abilities make him the frontline brawler even with his ability to tie up people and get around quickly with his web-shooters. Meanwhile, Jirou's relatively little training in hand-to-hand combat and powerful ranged Quirk make her the "shoot" of the pair.
* HappilyMarried: Implied, given that Future Izuku insists that his wife is ''fine'' after his teenage self wonders if he has cancer or if his blood is radioactive.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Played straight then subverted. Izuku acknowledges that no matter how studious he was, he simply wasn't strong or fast enough to be a Hero without a Quirk. After the spider bite and accepting Peter's tutelage, Izuku throws his all into preparing to become Spider-Man, staying well into the night to cram college-level material into his head and slowly getting the hang of his new powers.
* HarmlessElectrocution:
** Discussed and played straight. When Izuku's Venom Strike activates for the first time, he's horrified and worries that he fried Peter's brain, racing to call a hospital until Peter stops him.
** This also contributes to Izuku's hesitation to use it during the Heroes vs. Villains exercise. It's one thing to use it on a guy with SuperToughness and a HealingFactor, it's another thing to hit someone without either of those things with enough voltage to shock them unconscious.
* TheHero: Izuku is about as kind, selfless, and as straightforwardly heroic as you can get, only hampered by his confidence issues and inexperience.
* HeroesFrontierStep: While he wasn't powerless at the time, his decision to rush in to help Peter when none of the Heroes could once again inspires All Might to save the day and give Izuku the pep talk he needed to chase his dreams.
* HeroicBuild: When Izuku comes to in the hospital, he's surprised to find that he's now built like an acrobat with noticeable pecs, pumped up arms and legs, and six-pack abs. He can't stop gawking at himself in the mirror a week later and admires how his middle school uniform looks less baggy on him and commissioned fanart shows it clinging to his shoulders and chest. It becomes inconvenient when he discovers that the Spider-Man costume he bought to wear while training with Peter doesn't fit him well because of his new muscles, chafing around his crotch and rear.
* HeroicRROD: Izuku suffers from intense nausea and vertigo while using his phasing powers, limiting his usage of it because he has to fight to not blow chunks while passing through a single wall.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation:
** Izuku doesn't know what to say when Peter offers to teach him. He's excited and honored that a veteran Hero would take interest in him at all. At the same time, Izuku worries that he isn't worth Peter's time and could be impeding him from finding a way home. He ends up asking for more time to think about it.
--->'''Izuku:''' ''[biting his lip nervously as he looks at the ground]'' B-But am I really worth it?I was Quirkless… I was just a fanboy who couldn't let go of his impossible dream. I haven't even had these powers for a full day. Can I really do it? What if I mess up and just keep him from finding a way home?
** After this, he begins berating himself for bailing on Peter, since he'd been given the chance of a lifetime and just slinked away. He wonders if he was really capable of becoming a Hero if he suffers this kind of indecision, especially since Peter does it every day with an infinitely harder lifestyle.
** Peter warns Izuku against this, reminding him that the only person he needs to prove himself to is himself. He shouldn't care about meeting the expectations of his peers if it just makes him unhappy.
--->'''Peter:''' I made a lot of mistakes, but one of the biggest was thinking I had to prove myself to anyone and everyone I've ever met. From Jameson to Captain America, and sometimes that gave me a lot of grief. ''[pokes Izuku in the chest]'' So don't think you have to go above and beyond just to impress others or prove that you're 'good enough' for them. The only person you have to prove yourself to… is you.
* HeroWorshipper:
** Izuku is one of All Might's biggest fans. His bedroom is plastered with All Might's merchandise and All Might's heroics are what inspired Izuku to want to become a Hero in the first place. He even started learning English just to listen to All Might's Christmas album. This also extends to Heroes in general, giving Izuku nearly-encyclopedic knowledge of the capabilities and equipment of Heroes and Villains. He feels scandalized when Peter calls All Might a show off for his BigDamnHeroes moment. When All Might arrives to speak with him one-on-one, Izuku accidentally blurts "I love you!" while trying to work up the nerve to say something. It holds him back while learning to fight with Peter, as Izuku naturally tries to imitate his lifelong idol. It isn't until Peter points out that Izuku isn't All Might and doesn't have the same powers does Izuku start trying to think and fight like Spider-Man.
** Izuku is also this to Bakugou, constantly admiring Bakugou's achievements and following him around in hopes of becoming just as strong and brave as him. Izuku's refusal to let his mom call Mitsuki about Bakugou's behavior allowed everyone to feed Bakugou's ego even more. They've since drifted apart, with Future Izuku even pitying what Bakugou was at the time.
* HiddenDepths: Izuku is sweet guy with a natural inclination to save people. But on some level he's [[GreenEyedMonster envious and resentful]] of people who have Quirks when he didn't, as shown by some of his bitter internal snarking and cursing how everyone is constantly reminding him that he's Quirkless. Even after gaining spider powers, the snark doesn't truly go away and he's disturbed by how frequently he lets these thoughts come to the surface now that he doesn't have to take anyone's crap anymore. [[spoiler:During his fight against Bakugou, the dark feelings dredged up by his Venom Strike spill over, resulting in a blistering TheReasonYouSuckSpeech where Izuku deconstructs Bakugou's worldview.]]
* HonorBeforeReason: During the Heroes vs. Villains exercise, he's fixated on fighting and beating Bakugou in order to prove his merit and fulfill his promise to Mitsuki to be there for him. Jirou calls him out on this, as things could have been much easier if they had simply avoided him, but helps Izuku come up with a plan to take him down without a huge fight.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Izuku struggles to control all of his new spider powers when they start developing one after the other on his first day back at school. He makes a fool of himself when his WallCrawling powers stick a kendo club flyer to his hand, waving it around while trying to shake it off. In class, he [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength accidentally destroys his desk]] with his new SuperStrength while dodging one of Bakugou's explosions. While fleeing school, he slams almost face-first into a wall after [[InASingleBound he jumps twenty feet in the air]] to avoid an oncoming truck. After ''that'' Izuku's [[ShockAndAwe Venom Strike]] power electrocutes Peter when Izuku mistakes him for a mugger.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: He's spent most of his life as an outcast because of his Quirklessness and is excited when people start treating him like he's a normal person instead of a Quirkless loser. He breaks down the moment it seems like it will be taken all away when [[spoiler:U.A. reveals that it knows he doesn't have a Quirk]] and Peter believes Izuku is terrified of going from "outcast" to "freak" after having a taste of the normalcy he craved for years.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: All his life, Izuku wanted to have a Quirk of his own so he could chase his dreams of becoming a Hero. He gets what he asked for when he's bitten by the spider, giving him powers on par with even Bakugou's Explosion.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends:
** Zig-zagged. Izuku is ecstatic when he realizes that people are talking to him as a "normal person" and not "Quirkless Deku" when people wouldn't even give him the time of day. But he's not so desperate for companionship that he'd just go along with his former tormentors since he knows they aren't being genuine.
** After an exhausting first day at U.A., Izuku is just happy to finally fit in, watching his new friends chatter away with a smile on his face.
--->'''Izuku:''' So this is what it's like...
* ILoveNuclearPower: He gives off intense amounts of unknown radiation while using his phasing powers. [[spoiler:This is what tips off U.A. and proves that his powers aren't just a Quirk.]]
* ImColdSoCold: Izuku felt ice-cold after being bitten by the spider just before he collapses. He survives, but the threat of death was there for him.
* InASingleBound: Izuku easily clears a ten-foot gate while fleeing from class. He leaps twenty feet into the air while dodging an oncoming truck the same day. At the U.A. Entrance Exam, he leaps to another building on the other side of the street.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: During the U.A. Entrance Exam, he stops smashing robots to chat with Sero and Jirou, who were struggling to keep up while he continues on effortlessly. Iida calls him out for this with a scathing TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
* InSeriesNickname:
** Izuku gets called "Deku" meaning a "wooden puppet" with connotations of being worthless for not being able to do anything on his own without a Quirk, by Bakugou and his cronies.
** He gets the moniker "Prowler Boy" and "Prowler Kid" when he tried to save Peter on live television.
** Mitsuki affectionately calls him "Izu-kun", making a {{Pun}} off his name.
* {{Irony}}: In the manga, Izuku gains One For All after trying to save Bakugou and eating All Might's hair. Here, Izuku gets bitten by a spider and has to be saved by Bakugou. His One For All-wielding counterpart is also infamous for injuring himself to use his Quirk, while Spider-Izuku has a degree of SuperToughness, {{Intangibility}}, and a SpiderSense to mitigate or avoid harm.
* {{Intangibility}}: While running to save Peter from the Prowler, Izuku discovers that he can turn his body into multi-colored static that bleeds through objects, letting the Prowler's net and oncoming debris pass through him harmlessly. The downside is that it makes him nauseous and it fills his hearing with the sound of TV static. In addition, any electronics he passes through will explode, while organic objects will fuse into a mutated mess ala ''Film/TheFly''.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: 14-year-old Izuku strikes up a friendship with the 47-year-old Peter Parker.
* ItBeganWithATwistOfFate: Izuku would have never been bitten by the spider if he hadn't turned down that alleyway that day.
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Downplayed. Izuku can only use his Venom Strike once a day, meaning that he's limited to one use of it per fight at most. However, after a day's rest, he can use it again.
* ItsAllMyFault:
** He blames himself for Prowler attacking Peter, reasoning that if Peter hadn't extended a hand to him, then he wouldn't have been tracked down on social media. He also blames himself for not accepting Peter's offer right off the bat, but Peter disabuses him of that notion by saying he'd need to be worrying about Izuku's well-being on top of staying alive.
** He also blames himself for the fight between Katsuki and Mitsuki in the car, as Izuku's new "Quirk" is what's causing Katsuki's irritable behavior. But some part of Izuku's subconscious tried to reassure him otherwise.
* JapanesePoliteness: Izuku's English is initially formal and stilted due to a combination of his rock-bottom self-esteem, his guilt over electrocuting Peter, and his discomfort in actually using English. He also refers to Mitsuki as "Mitsuki oba-san" or roughly "Auntie Mitsuki", which is customary for children when referring to women older than them.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Subverted. Izuku ''wants'' to do this when Peter offers to teach him, but he's so unsure of himself and Peter's situation that he ends up asking for more time to think. Then it's played straight with Izuku's clear excitement over getting the chance to chase his dreams and help people, both of which surprise Peter, who wanted to monetize his powers at first.
* KeepingSecretsSucks:
** Izuku feels horrible about all the lies and half-truths he's feeding his mother to keep her from worrying about him or potentially calling the cops on Peter.
** He panics when he learns that [[spoiler:U.A. has figured out he doesn't have a Quirk]], breaking down while begging Peter for a solution to his predicament. Izuku is so scared that he forgets his usual UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics.
--->'''Izuku:''' ''[whispering]'' P-Peter... please, I’m scared. I don’t know what to do... I-I can’t lie about this anymore...
* KidHero: Izuku is just 14 when he first gets his spider-powers and plans on entering U.A. at 15.
* TheKlutz: Going along with his ButtMonkey tendencies, Izuku remains klutzy even after he gains SuperReflexes. He repeatedly slams into a wall while trying to get his phasing powers to work, gets his foot tangled in wires while trying to leap away from Bakugou, and has all the grace of a rock when he leaps from the top of a ferris wheel to start web-swinging for the first time. After finishing his web-swinging session at Bespi Tower, he realizes that he hasn't worked out his landings and has to roll onto the platform and down the stairs before he comes to a stop. Even after ten months of training, it takes fifteen attempts at Peter's obstacle course for Izuku to stick the landing, each one more painful than the last.
* LanguageBarrier: Subverted. Peter immediately assumes that Izuku won't be able to understand a word he says and tries to communicate through charades. He didn't count on Izuku responding in broken, but intelligible English. Of course, there are still plenty of words that Izuku doesn't know and he can't keep up if Peter speaks too quickly, but the language divide is far from insurmountable. While training to get into U.A., he and Peter decide to completely bridge the gap by teaching each other English and Japanese respectively.
-->'''Izuku:''' I can tell and hear English, sir.\\
'''Peter:''' You can understand...? ''[sighs and {{facepalm}}s]'' Smooth, Peter. You just made yourself look like an ass in front of a teenager.
* LegacyCharacter: Izuku is set to become Peter's student and his universe's version of Spider-Man. This motivates him to work even harder, as he wants to live up to Peter's and All Might's faith that he'll become a great Hero.
* LightningBruiser: He's faster than any Olympic athlete, can flatten robots with a single punch, and is tough enough to take just as well as he can give. While his durability is mainly limited to blunt impacts, almost nothing in the U.A. Entrance Exam could even slow him down. During Aizawa's Quirk Apprehension Test, Izuku manages to score in second, ahead of Bakugou, thanks to his raw physical ability.
* LuminescentBlush:
** Izuku turns bright red when Peter starts alluding to the effects of puberty and his new spider-powers. He turns even redder after he accidentally blurts "I love you!" to All Might, who laughs it off. He blushes again when he's too embarrassed to tell Peter about the rashes he's been getting on his thighs, joints, and crotch from his Spider-Man costume.
** He turns red from his head to his toes when he realizes that he pressed a girl against his chest while rescuing her and is later caught by Jirou in a BridalCarry.
* MessyHair: His curly hair is never combed. Iida even refers to him by said hair.
* MissedTheCall: It's implied that Izuku could have been All Might's successor if they had just met a few days earlier.
* MistakenForMasturbating: Izuku beats around the bush while trying to explain that his training costume is giving him rashes on his thighs, joints, and crotch. Peter is led to this conclusion and tells Izuku to talk to someone else until Izuku clarifies himself.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[motioning to his thighs]'' Um, Peter-san? Do you normally... become red? ''[blushes deeply]''\\
'''Peter:''' Huh? Um, kid, that's kinda not a thing you should be talking about with me.\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[turns even redder]'' N-No!
* MommasBoy: Because his father works overseas, Izuku is especially close to his mom, calling her the best mom ever. He hates to worry her and can't wait to tell her about his new powers, but dreads of thought of explaining why he ditched school. After the Prowler incident, he comes home to see his mom in tears and instantly feels terrible about how worried he made her. He feels even worse about having to lie to her constantly about his powers and his activities but doesn't want to worry her more than he already has.
* MoodWhiplash:
** PlayedForLaughs. As shown by the quote under ThisIsMyStory, Izuku tries to be super dramatic and deliberate in his opening narration, only for it to fall apart into comedic begging as his audience stops caring and starts to leave.
** PlayedForDrama when [[spoiler:All Might tells him that U.A. knows that Izuku doesn't have a Quirk.]] He goes from overwhelming joy to hysterics and complete terror, frantically calling Peter for advice while fighting the urge to scream.
* MotorMouth: Izuku mumbles to himself when he's nervous or deep in thought, spewing out a WallOfText until he's cut off or asked to stop.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[muttering in class]'' T-the possibilities of this Quirk are limitless! With these I can be able to hold myself onto fast-moving vehicles without much trouble... n-no wait I'll probably need to train my body to handle the velocity. Oh! Wait, recon! Scouting out a villain's location and observing the situation is also a possibility for this Quirk...!\\
'''Bakugou:''' Deku...\\
'''Izuku:''' But wait, I'll also need to train my upper body before I go to U.A.... t-that shouldn't be a problem now! I'm pretty sure there are tons of training programs online for people with Quirks that allow them to scale buildings!\\
'''Bakugou:''' Deku...!\\
'''Izuku:''' Man, I need to tell Mom as soon as possible! T-This Quirk probably came from someone in her or Dad's family and I can get advice from them! Yes, that's it! I...!\\
'''Bakugou:''' [[BigShutUp SHUT THE HELL UP!]]
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Zig-zagged. Sure, Izuku is ripped for a teenager thanks to the spider bite and [[MusclesAreMeaningful it shows his increased strength and athleticism]], but his lean, acrobatic physique isn't indicative of how he can lift refrigerators with one hand and carry a maximum of ten tons.
* MundaneUtility: Izuku quickly finds that his new "Quirk" comes with a lot of perks. His SpiderSense let him avoid getting clocked in the head in the middle of a busy crowd, WallCrawling proved handy for escaping bullies by sticking to walls and ceilings out of sight, and SuperSpeed is a huge help when he's rushing to get a katsu bun before the school store runs out.
-->These Spider-Powers sure were handy at times…
* MustHaveCaffeine: Izuku ends up putting a coffee machine in his room while trying to cram college-level physics, chemistry, and mechanical engineering into his head in time to build his own web-shooters.
* NerdActionHero:
** He's a Hero nerd to the nth degree and is gifted with the powers of Spider-Man. He even lampshades it, saying that his life became something out of an action movie after getting his powers.
** Prior to the U.A. Entrance Exam, Izuku is surprised when Bakugou doesn't call him a nerd for ten minutes. He immediately lampshades how sad that sounds.
* NervousWreck: Izuku is easily startled and sweats constantly from nervousness. He can't help but quiver while standing in front of U.A. even after ten months of training with the real Spider-Man.
* NiceGuy: Izuku is sweet, honest, and polite, dreaming of the day he can devote his life to helping others as a Hero. He almost always puts others before himself and is extremely empathetic to people in trouble.
* OcularGushers: Izuku and his mom sob uncontrollably after he wakes up from the coma the spider bite put him into. Peter is taken aback by how much Izuku can cry in one day.
* OnlyFriend: In a way, Izuku is the only one in Bakugou's social circle to actually care about him as a person, promising Mitsuki that he'll stand by him when the rest of their peers abandoned Bakugou. He's also the universe-displaced Peter's only confidant.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In the climax of their brawl during the Heroes vs. Villains exercise, [[spoiler:Izuku calls Bakugou by his first name instead of Kacchan, the first time he'd done so in years. In fact, Bakugou freezes because of how rare this is.]]
* PainfulTransformation: The spider bite was excruciating to Izuku, who felt as though he'd been stabbed by an icicle before every one of his nerves lit on fire. He felt ice cold before [[VomitIndiscretionShot emptying his lunch]] on the street and collapsing, waking up covered in sweat with a hoarse throat after spending two days in a coma.
* ParentalSexualitySquick: Downplayed. After an ImagineSpot gives Izuku a RagingStiffie, he desperately tries to get it to go away by trying to ThinkUnsexyThoughts. One of the images he brings up is his parents kissing.
* PersonalityPowers: A ShrinkingViolet Hero FanBoy who enjoys reading comic books gets the powers of one of the most famous comic book heroes of all time. He also developed {{Intangibility}}, going along with his CowardlyLion tendencies and how invisible he was to the world until he got his powers.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He isn't especially tall, coming up at [=5'5''=], but he's strong enough to carry ten tons of appliances before faltering and can crush a desk to pieces completely by accident.
* PowerIncontinence: Izuku struggles to use his phasing and Venom Strike powers at first because he can't figure out the trigger. While he manages to learn that the former could be activated through a fight-or-flight response, the latter continues to elude him during the first half of his ten months of training for the U.A. Entrance Exam. He also can't control his new Spider-Strength at first, going through dozens of stress balls while trying to learn how to limit it so he doesn't break anything he doesn't want to.
* PowerMisidentification: Unwilling to believe that the spider bite gave him the powers of Spider-Man, Izuku initially tries to rationalize the hairs growing on his hands as a latent Quirk awakened by the spider bite. But when he discovers his SpiderSense, SuperStrength, and WallCrawling powers, he quickly realizes that there's no way this could just be a Quirk. After the Prowler incident, he continues to pass off his abilities as a strange Quirk to avoid unwanted attention. He ends up referring to his abilities as "Ghost Spider" while sending in his Quirk registration forms.
* PowerOfHate: Izuku's Venom Strike is activated by his long-repressed feelings of resentment and desire to lash out at others for grinding him for all his life.
* PrecisionFStrike: Izuku sometimes curses with "damn" or "crap", but keeps it to himself rather than aiming the curses at anyone else. It's only when he's truly pissed that he calls Bakugou an "asshole" for his behavior.
* ProjectileWebbing: His web-shooters work identically to Peter's, producing lines of spider silk-like thread that instantly bind to whatever they hit and can make webs on impact.
* TheProtagonist: Izuku is the primary viewpoint character of the story, which is being narrated through his perspective.
* PsychoactivePowers: Izuku discovers that his less-spidery powers are tied to his emotions, managing to activate his phasing power at will by latching onto the terror he felt when running at the Prowler. He later learns that his Venom Strike is activated by his desire to strike back and hurt others out of feelings of frustration and resentment, which troubles him until Peter assures him that it's alright as long as he channels those feelings towards helping others.
* PubertySuperpower: Izuku's powers are mistaken for these because of how long it took for him to get his so-called "Quirk".
* RageBreakingPoint: Izuku blames the Quirk-obsessed nature of society for Bakugou's relationship with him and continues to rationalize his behavior until the Heroes vs. villains exercise. Bakugou continues to deride Izuku throughout it, saying that even with his new powers, Izuku is still the same worthless nobody he was before. After a certain point, Izuku snaps, immediately punching Bakugou hard enough to make him nearly puke before giving him a blistering speech about how much of an asshole he is.
* RagingStiffie: Izuku has an ImagineSpot of Jirou with his arms around him, her body pressing against his and him feeling every part of her through his skintight costume while he climbs up a building. Then, while trying to don't think about it, he remembers how skintight Uraraka's costume is. He's implied to have gotten a hard-on and has to ThinkUnsexyThoughts to get rid of it, being thankful that male superheroes like him wear groin protection while out in the field.
* RealityEnsues:
** A frequent complaint in the fandom is, "If Izuku wanted to become a Hero so badly, why didn't he train his [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower mind and body]] like Franchise/{{Batman}}?" Izuku ''has'' thought about doing this, but he's a wimpy, nerdy kid with his own hobbies. It would be unrealistic for him to drop everything and start vigorously training his body like some comic book character when he knew deep down that being a BadassNormal wasn't practical in the long-term on his Earth. He also had no clear goal or guide to get him there, as no one wanted to deal with a Quirkless kid. As anyone who starts a diet or intense physical training can attest, it's not easy to start it, much less go through with it, without help.
--->It was sad, really. Clinging to his dream despite his condition. One would think he would devote his mind and body to training, like one of those comic characters of old... But that was fiction. This was reality.
** It isn't healthy to try and sleep off a venomous spider bite. Izuku nearly died and went into a short coma even after Bakugou rushes him to a hospital to get him medical treatment.
** Izuku tries to sneak away from Bakugou by trying to jump onto a rooftop from the ground. But he doesn't watch where he's jumping in the middle of a dense, crowded city and gets his foot snagged on a telephone wire that drops him into a pile of garbage bags.
** When confronted by Katsuki in Mitsuki's car, she asks who threw the first punch. Izuku is tempted to take the heat if only because that's what happened in cheesy high school dramas where the victim gains the bully's respect for being the bigger man. But since Izuku knew this wasn't the case, he kept his mouth shut, forcing Katsuki to admit his fault.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Peter points out that Izuku's arms would pop off if he didn't have the SuperStrength and SuperToughness to handle web-swinging. Izuku also finds that he's more flexible after the spider bite, which makes it a lot easier for him to learn how to move like Spider-Man and pull off moves that could have broken his back if he attempted them before the bite.
* RunningGag:
** Izuku has a bad habit of slamming into walls or being faceplanted into the ground for one reason or another. Lampshaded in the first issue.
--->This wasn't going to become a thing, was it?
** Izuku laments that his SpiderSense tends to fail him at the worst of times. It never triggers while he's sparring with Peter, allowing him to get repeatedly faceplanted by his mentor. It also doesn't trigger when Bakugou waits in the hall for Izuku in school, despite the former's loudly announced desire to beat the crap out of him.
--->'''Izuku:''' Spider-Sense, you have failed me again.
* SamaritanSyndrome: Izuku is utterly terrified of the Prowler, but he rushes in anyways when he sees that no one else was going to help Peter.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After destroying a desk with his newfound SuperStrength, Izuku bolts from class when he sees the absolutely livid expression on Bakugou's face. He has the same reaction when Bakugou declares his intention to make mince meat out of him the day after. He spends the next few weeks ducking into classrooms and hiding on walls and ceilings to avoid Bakugou.
* ShockAndAwe: Izuku possesses the same Venom Strike power as ComicBook/MilesMorales, accidentally electrocuting Peter and sending him flying backward. However, it's much more limited, as he can only use it once a day and it's only powerful enough to stun someone for a few minutes rather than render them unconscious.
* ShrinkingViolet: Izuku is shy and awkward after more than a decade of being ostracized and bullied by his peers. He's constantly unsure of himself and shrinks underneath his own fame after the Prowler incident. Despite his timidity, he isn't spineless and is offended when Peter calls All Might a show off. He later angrily shouts at Peter for throwing a rock at him to test his SpiderSense.
* SleepDeprivation: Izuku stays up all night while trying to learn about the chemistry and physics behind making his own web fluid and web-shooters.
* SociallyAwkwardHero:
** Izuku doesn't have much social experience thanks to being bullied or ignored by his peers for most of his life without a single person he could really call a friend. Peter happens to be the first one he's had in years. He also stumbles over himself when he's speaking to a girl for the first time.
** While sitting down at a bubble tea cafe with his new friends at U.A., Izuku muses that he hasn't hung out with anyone in years, only watching others do it or seeing it on TV or in the movies. As a result, he's laughably bad at making small talk.
* SomethingPerson: He's Spider-Man, of course!
* SpiderSense: Izuku's powers come with the classic Spider-Sense, alerting him when Bakugou was sending an explosion at him and ensuring that he managed to jump out of the way of an oncoming truck. It doesn't work when the person doing it is someone Izuku trusts unconditionally, like Peter, and will only activate when Izuku is in serious danger of harm. Getting hit by a rock in the shoulder might hurt, but it's not going to leave him reeling in the way an explosion to the face would. Izuku's Spider-Sense seems to be weaker than Peter's in general, as it refused to activate even as Peter repeatedly faceplants Izuku during their sparring sessions nor does it go off when Bakugou waits for Izuku in the hallway.
* {{Squee}}: Izuku's default response to meeting anyone on the long list of Heroes he admires is this.
* StarstruckSpeechless:
** Izuku meets All Might after the Prowler incident and is totally tongue-tied. He desperately tries to work up the nerve to say ''something'', only to blurt out "I love you!", to his intense embarrassment. He's finally able to speak properly after All Might starts asking him questions.
** Izuku can only gasp and {{Squee}} when he learns Present Mic will be proctoring the exam before rattling off everything he knows about him in a hushed squeal.
* StickySituation: He embarrasses himself on his first day back at school when he desperately tries to shake off the kendo club flyer off his hand after his WallCrawling powers develop. A few hours later, he accidentally destroys his desk and a few pieces of it are still sticking to his palms. He gets the hang of it soon enough and lets go as he bolts for the door.
* SuperSpeed: Downplayed. Izuku isn't able to run like Ingenium or All Might, but he can still run faster than an Olympic sprinter while also performing all sorts of death-defying acrobatics to get around even more quickly. He outpaces everyone in his group at the U.A. Entrance Exam except for Iida and still ends up at the head of the pack thanks to being able to run along a nearby building.
* SuperReflexes: Izuku's powers come with a boost to his reflexes, ducking under one of Bakugou's explosions as if it were in slow motion and jumping out of the way on an oncoming car in a split second. They aren't infallible, as he fell flat on his face after Peter webbed him by accident while being blown backward by Izuku's Venom Strike.
* SuperStrength:
** Izuku is strong enough to accidentally smash his desk to pieces while trying to dodge one of Bakugou's explosions. He later shoves Bakugou all the way down a hallway when he meant to lightly push him and begins snapping his pencils in two. He also notices that exercise that would have left him utterly winded before the spider-bite feels like light exercise with his new abilities. Peter decides to test Izuku's strength by throwing kitchen appliances and old roller coaster cars at him and webbing them together, estimating that Izuku can lift a maximum of ten tons before keeling over from the strain. Peter tries to increase Izuku's strength further by slowly piling on additional weight over the course of their ten-month training session.
** By the U.A. Entrance Exam, Izuku is easily crushing the robots with his punches and tearing them apart with his bare hands.
* SuperToughness: His powers come with a measure of this, which is why he's in pain but otherwise uninjured after running into a wall over and over while trying to get his phasing ability to work. He's also convinced that he could probably survive a fifty-foot drop onto hard asphalt if he didn't land on his neck, but he's also aware that it would hurt a ton. He's also perfectly fine after swinging down from a streetlight and punching a robot hard enough to flatten it like a tin can.
* TakeOurWordForIt: Izuku tells the reader that the less they knew about the pork chops he phased through, the better.
* TenderTears: Izuku cries easily whenever he's feeling particularly joyful or sad. He has to fight back tears while thinking about how pathetic his own problems were when compared to Peter's tortured personal life. He also gets teary eyed when Peter is telling him how Thor sacrificed himself for the sake of Earth and his daughter, Torunn.
* TeachMeHowToFight: Well, more like "Teach me how to become a Hero", but Izuku's acceptance of Peter's offer comes across like this.
* TechnicolorLightning: The electricity Izuku emits is green to match his ColorMotif.
* TemptingFate: After hearing about his admission to U.A., Izuku feels like nothing could bring him down now. [[spoiler:Then he learns that U.A ''knows'' he doesn't have a Quirk and wants to question him about it.]]
* ThemeNaming: After realizing that he has the powers of Spider-Man, Izuku starts referring to his new abilities as Spider-X, including his SpiderSense and Spider-Stamina.
* TheyWouldCutYouUp: After [[spoiler:All Might informs him that U.A. knows he doesn't have a Quirk]], Izuku quickly flies into a panic about whether he'll be dragged away to a lab and never get to attend U.A. According to Nezu, [[ProperlyParanoid this was definitely a possibility.]]
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Subverted. After he and Jirou [[spoiler:tie up Bakugou, Izuku goes on a short speech about how he's not going to shirk under the name of Deku anymore. But this just wastes time they could have been using to get to the bomb, and in their haste to leave they forget to tie the capture tape around him, which lets him reenter the fight.]]
* ThinkUnsexyThoughts: After an ImagineSpot of having Jirou's arms around him while he climbs up a building (and accidentally remembering how Uraraka felt and her costume), Izuku quickly thinks of All Might giving a speech, his parents kissing, and finally Nezu in a bikini to get his RagingStiffie to go away.
* ThisCannotBe:
** Izuku's initial response to discovering the full breadth of his spider-powers is that it was completely impossible for him to have the powers of a fictional character. He has the same reaction when he runs into Peter Parker not long afterward.
--->'''Izuku:''' N-No. That's... that's... ''[bolts out of class out of fright and unease]'' This is impossible... it's impossible!
** All of his unease is replaced with giddiness as he realizes that what's happening ''can't'' be impossible because he's not dreaming as he climbs up the building.
--->'''Izuku:''' This isn't a dream. This isn't an impossibility. This is... This is actually happening!
* ThisIsMyStory: Parodied. Izuku tries to be dramatic and deliberate when his narration opens the story, but he quickly bores his audience and he has to beg them to stay with his usual dorkiness, as shown by the opening lines.
-->'''Izuku:''' Do you want to know my story? Are you '''sure''' you want to know? The tale I'm going to spin isn't for the faint of heart and... [[MoodWhiplash Wait! Wait, don't go!]] [[DorkKnight O-Okay look, this is the first time I've told anybody what happened like this, so please be patient!]] Our story begins like a lot of manga and comics do... in middle school.
* ThisIsReality: Izuku initially tries to dismiss his budding spider powers as just a latent Quirk because he lives in reality, not a comic book. He thinks the phrase again when he dismisses the idea of TakingTheHeat for Bakugou, as the "showing the bully who is the bigger man" argument is something that only works in cheesy high school dramas.
* ThinkingTic: Izuku mumbles loudly but unintelligibly to himself when he's thinking hard.
* TrainingFromHell: Getting powers and a naturally fit physique from the spider bite doesn't mean Izuku is excluded from this. Peter puts him through the wringer to prepare him for U.A., making him carry tons of appliances around, lap the entire city several times, and refine his SpiderSense by leaving rusty nails and other dangerous objects lying around that he could step on. Izuku admits it wasn't fun, but since he was trying to get into the greatest Hero school in the world, he had to make sure he deserved to be there.
* UnderwearOfPower: Invoked. Izuku is fully aware that many heroes wore their underwear on the outside of their costume just in case the costume tore. He decides to slip a pair of exercise shorts over the ill-fitting Spider-Man costume he bought in case he has an [[WardrobeMalfunction "accident."]]
* UnSorcerer: On Izuku's Earth, 80% of people are born with a superpower called a Quirk. He's one of the unlucky 20% to be born without one. It doesn't stick, because he develops spider-powers in his last year of middle school after a spider bite, but he's still technically Quirkless.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Justified. When Izuku dodges an oncoming truck by leaping twenty feet into the air, the crowd at the crosswalk merely brushes him off for worrying them when he had a "Quirk" like that. Of course, they had no way of knowing that he was Quirkless just a few days ago. Then it's subverted when Kamui Woods says that Izuku's stunt is making people nervous and they called for a Hero to get him down.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: If Izuku tries to speak while phasing, his voice is distorted to sound like four people are speaking at once: one close, one far away, one loud, and one soft.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: The spider bite makes Izuku so nauseous that he ends up puking on the street before collapsing. He pukes again after using his phasing power for the second time, this time all over the floor Peter just mopped.
* WallCrawling: Izuku has tiny hairs growing on his hands and feet that he can use to stick to walls and other things at will. He first discovers this when he accidentally sticks a kendo club poster to his hand and later climbs up the building he slammed into after dodging an oncoming truck. Unfortunately, it doesn't work if his clothing is too thick to not let the hairs through. He finds this out the hard way when he tries to run up a wall with his sneakers on. He's dismayed that he has to practice his new power by climbing on dirty old buildings with just his socks on, squirming when he feels the dirt and moisture seeping in. His setules can also retract unconsciously if he ever spaces out, forcing Izuku to practice until it comes as naturally to him as breathing so he doesn't fall off a building at an inopportune time.
* WallRun: He demonstrates his WallCrawling powers to his mom this way. He later uses this (after shaving the bottoms off his sneakers) while navigating the obstacle course Peter set up for him the night before the exam. He decides to not take any risks and takes off his shoes right before the practical portion of the U.A. Entrance Exam.
* WalkingTechbane: Any electronics Izuku passes through while using his phasing powers will short circuit and potentially explode. Luckily, stuff he has on his person when he turns intangible are unaffected, allowing him to carry his cell phone and web-shooters without an issue. During the U.A. Entrance Exam, his powers crash a computer hooked up to a sensor destroyed when Izuku passes through it.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Izuku happens to turn down just the right alleyway to see the Prowler railing at her client over the phone when she was hired to steal something. Then he gets bitten by the same spider she was looking for and gains spider-powers. On his first day back in school, his spider-powers develop and he ends up running into Peter Parker, who Izuku thought was [[ComicBooksAreReal completely fictional.]]
* WellDoneSonGuy: Downplayed. While they aren't related, Izuku is determined to make Peter, his mentor and the first person to ever put stock in his dream, proud of him. At the same time, Peter is already impressed with Izuku's work ethic and heroic impulses and tells him that he doesn't need to prove himself to anyone but himself.
* WithFriendsLikeThese:
** Izuku continues to admire Bakugou despite years of torment and is the only one in Bakugou's social circle to actually care about him as a person. He's deeply hurt when Bakugou declares that Izuku isn't his friend and promises Mitsuki that he'll continue to stand by him.
** Jirou refers to Bakugou as a dick when he shoves past the two of them and points out that "Deku" doesn't sound like a friendly nickname. Izuku continues to call Bakugou his friend and doesn't hold any ill will towards him.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatHotness: Izuku's physique was transformed from a scrawny nerd's to that of a muscled acrobat after being bitten by the spider.
* {{Workaholic}}: Once he starts training with Peter, Izuku works his hardest every day while studying well into the night. Inko finds him snoring over an open chemistry textbook at 2:00 a.m. and has to remind him to head back to bed. He complies, only to collapse right on top of it and instantly go back to sleep. By the end of his ten months of training, he begs Peter to let him practice more until Peter points out that it would be detrimental for Izuku to exhaust himself the night before the exam. He then goes onto say that it's weird hearing this kind of work ethic from a teenager.
* WrongContextMagic: He's unique in his universe as the only known person with superpowers that don't involve a Quirk, but he continues to pass them off as one anyways to avoid unwanted attention. [[spoiler:When U.A. finds out, they call him in before classes to interrogate him on the origins of his abilities, but continue to allow him to masquerade his power as a Quirk called "Ghost Spider".]]
* YouAreNotAlone: DoubleSubverted. He tells [[spoiler:Bakugou that he ''is'' alone, as everyone around him ''hated'' him for his behavior and only tagged along out of fear. After tearing down Bakugou's need for gratification and his horrible ego, Izuku ends his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech by admitting that he always admired him and ''is'' his friend.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Izuku has deep green hair, but this is hardly unusual in his universe.
* YouthfulFreckles: He has a cluster of four freckles on each cheek just under both of his eyes.

to:

* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Downplayed. Izuku doesn't become rude or obnoxious, but he goes on a little power trip during the U.A. Entrance Exam because of his continued success, bouncing around with a smug little grin on his face and soaking in the oohs and aahs of the competition he's running circles around. TheCommissionerGordon: He even stops punching robots to chat with Jirou and Sero, which Iida calls him fills out on as insulting to the people who are trying their hardest.
* AdaptationalBadass: Zigzagged. He doesn't have the raw power of One For All at his disposal, but Izuku's spider powers have none of the drawbacks his Quirk-using counterpart faced. He's just as fast and agile as when canon Izuku is using One For All: Full Cowl, but he can't simply be knocked out of it because it's a natural part of his biology. In addition, he's far stronger than canon Izuku when the latter isn't using 100%, easily lifting a fridge and carrying a maximum of ten tons when One For All-using Izuku struggled to lift a single steel beam with one hand.[[note]]The average steel beam weighs about 400 pounds.[[/note]]
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: He's more of a DeadpanSnarker here and more obviously resentful of the people around him who mocked him for being Quirkless, in large part fueled by having Peter Parker, one of the kings of snark, as his mentor. This isn't always a good thing, as he talks back to Iida on reflex when the latter calls him out just before the practical part of the U.A. Entrance Exam and worries about alienating a future classmate.
* AdaptationRelationshipOverhaul: Izuku was never attacked by the Sludge Villain due to turning down the alleyway, so he never spoke with All Might. Because of this, the two of them are strangers at the start of the story. While All Might does arrive to give Izuku a nice pep talk that spurs Izuku to accept Peter's tutelage, neither of them know the other's greatest secret.
* AdaptationalSuperpowerChange: Izuku doesn't receive One For All in this story. Instead, he's bitten by a spider and gains the proportionate strength, speed, agility, and toughness of one as well as {{Intangibility}}, a SpiderSense, and [[ShockAndAwe his Venom Strike]].
* {{Adorkable}}: Izuku is a shy, easily flustered, embarrassingly polite and sweet young man. He's a bit of a NervousWreck who's easily startled and simply alluding to the effects of puberty, namely growing hair in unfamiliar places, is enough to make him turn bright red. The thought of having a "Quirk" at all makes him want to dance on his desk from joy and excitement (which would have been similar to Peter's infamous dance in ''Film/SpiderMan3''). He's also a Hero nerd to the nth degree and can't help but {{Squee}} when he meets a cool Hero. When he's finally speaking with All Might face-to-face, the first thing that comes out of Izuku's mouth is "I love you!" to Izuku's mortification.
* AffirmativeActionLegacy: Downplayed. Izuku is a Japanese Spider-Man when compared to his Caucasian mentor, Peter Parker. As comic readers know, Izuku is ''far'' from the [[Manga/SpiderMan first]] [[Series/SpiderManJapan Japanese]] [[http://www5c.biglobe.ne.jp/~spa-girl/49789931/ Spider-Man]] in the multiverse.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer:
** As the only Quirkless kid in class, Izuku is horrendously bullied or at best pitied by his classmates. Even when he nearly dies from a spider bite, Izuku knows they only sent him cards and visited him out of politeness, not even giving him the time of day once he returns to school. After he accidentally starts a fight with Bakugou, they're quick to let Izuku take the heat even if Bakugou started it and they egged them on.
** This is swiftly averted by the time he gets to U.A., as he has already made fast friends with Sero and Jirou. He also makes friends with Uraraka after helping her at the entrance exam and his powers impress everyone enough to draw their attention.
* AlternateCharacterReading: As per canon, Bakugou's MaliciousMisnaming for Izuku, "Deku", is derived from an alternate reading in the first character of Izuku's name. It means "wooden figure" or a "puppet" who can't do anything on his own, referencing Izuku's Quirklessness.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: As if the name Spider-Man wasn't obvious enough.
* AllWebbedUp: Izuku develops his own web-fluid formula with Peter's help and builds some prototype web-shooters to practice with. They're bulky and clunky-looking compared to Peter's due to being made from spare parts, but they're functional and get the job done.
* AppropriatedAppelation: Uraraka calls him Deku before she learns his real name, thinking it an AffectionateNickname because it sounds like "dekiru"[[note]]To be able to do something[[/note]], giving it a "can do it" vibe". Izuku ends up embracing it after hearing this.
* AscendedFanboy: A Quirkless, nerdy kid who wants to become a Hero more than anything gets his wish when a spider bite gives him the power to chase his dreams.
* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: Justified. English isn't Izuku's first language and he's never had to use it to actually talk to someone before. So his attempts to speak to Peter in English are somewhat stilted, broken, and awkward due to his lack of practice. He's also extremely apologetic in their first meeting because he electrocuted Peter a few minutes earlier. Izuku also lampshades this, cursing himself when he misses an article or says something wrong. It's also downplayed, since Izuku is mostly intelligible, even if he has to speak and listen slowly. The two decide to teach other their respective native tongues to overcome this. Izuku becomes almost completely fluent by the end of their ten-month training session, but Peter still corrects him from time to time, telling him to say "That's easy" instead of "Most easy".
-->'''Izuku:''' I am most sorry, sir! ''[bows apologetically]'' I have just received my Quirk, and have struck you without thought! I most humbly apologize!\\
'''Peter:''' ''[holding Izuku's phone]'' Kid, you don't...\\
'''Izuku:''' I humbly request for phone! We must notify hospital for your recovery and...
* AwesomeByAnalysis: Having spent his whole life studying the Quirks of others, he can easily pick apart the mechanics of a Quirk and all of their uses with only a little bit of information. He's also memorized all of Bakugou's moves, which lets Jirou get the drop on him.
* BadassAdorable: An {{Adorkable}} young man who struggles to talk to girls and nerds out over superheroes also has the SuperStrength to crush robots like tin cans and tear them apart with his bare hands.
* BadLiar: His mom quickly sees through most of his lies about where he's going at night, but doesn't bring it up with him until the night before the U.A. Entrance Exam because she wants to trust him and not hang over his shoulder all the time.
* BadPowersGoodPeople: Izuku's Venom Strike is activated by his feelings of resentment and desire to lash out at others for years of mistreatment. He's disgusted with himself when he realizes this, but Peter assures him that it's okay so long as he only uses it to help others.
* BaitAndSwitch: He uses this to get the upper hand against Peter while training to enter U.A. After getting his butt kicked for the past half hour, Izuku decides to change his strategy and charges straight at Peter, only to use his arm as a pivot once Peter catches it to kick him in the face.
* BetaOutfit: Much like Miles in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'', Izuku purchases a cheap Spider-Man costume to wear while practicing with Peter. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit well thanks to his new musculature. He can't zip up the back, it's tight around his crotch and rear, and the gloves are too small to be usable. Despite how silly it looks, Izuku feels proud to wear it as a super suit... until Peter doubles over and can barely keep himself from laughing at the sight.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[gloomy and thoroughly humiliated]'' I-I look most silly, do I not?
* BigEater:
** Inko is concerned when Izuku starts devouring plate after plate for breakfast on his first day back at school when he used to barely touch it. When he's done with everything she gave him, he proceeds to knock off the leftover eggs in the pan with a piece of toast. He downed four bowls of katsudon along with all the toppings and sides the night before. Izuku is equally surprised and worried about this development, but he tries to reassure his mom (and himself) with a grin before heading out. His new appetite is {{foreshadowing}} for his SuperStrength and other mutations. It also has basis in biology.[[note]]The average spider eats about 10 percent of its weight daily, meaning that the 150 pound Izuku would need to eat fifteen pounds of food to maintain his body's needs. Even excluding the spider aspects, muscle by definition uses additional calories, which is why human bodies are naturally inclined to limit muscle growth to conserve energy. Izuku's new HeroicBuild would require far more calories than his old GeekPhysique to sustain itself.[[/note]]
--->'''Inko:''' I'm actually surprised. ''[scoops eggs and ham onto her plate and Izuku's]'' You used to barely touch your food and now you're devouring it. I mean I heard of growing boys but honestly this is a shock.\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[nods]'' Yeah, for me too. ''[continues eating as Inko looks on worriedly]''\\
'''Inko:''' Are you sure you're alright, Izuku?\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[pauses as he thinks it over]'' Yeah. I am.
** After the U.A. Entrance Exam, he and Peter visit a Big Bang Burger and go for the eating challenge to save cash. The two of them easily wolf down a burger that's normally a challenge to finish in half-an-hour in minutes.
* BodyHorror: Any organic thing Izuku phases with him will fuse into a warm gelatinous blob with hairs growing out of the bones. He and Peter are lucky they tried this on ground meat first and not while Izuku was trying to rescue someone. The same goes for any organic things he phases through.
* BondVillainStupidity: A rare heroic example. When he and Jirou [[spoiler:ambush and tie up Bakugou with webbing, Izuku monologues about how he's going to be a hero and is not going to shrink under him anymore. While that's fine and dandy, all it does is piss Bakugou off enough to free himself shortly after Izuku and Jirou turn tail to get to the bomb when they could have simply wrapped the capture tape around him.]]
* BornUnlucky: Izuku is a literal case of this, being one of the relatively rare 20 percent of people to be born without a Quirk, leading to years of torment and derision from his classmates.
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Even after getting superpowers, Izuku's initial attempts at fighting amount to wild flailing that Peter can dodge with a completely bored look on his face. After months of hand-to-hand combat training, Izuku proves to be at least equal, if not superior to Bakugou in close combat, using a variety of punches, kicks, and acrobatics along with his SuperStrength and webbing to match Bakugou's explosive firepower.
* BuildingSwing: Izuku starts practicing how to web-swing after completing his own web-shooters. While he's hesitant at first, it soon comes naturally to him and he has the time of his life somersaulting and soaring through the air for the first time. At least until Peter knocks him out of the air with a well-placed rock to prepare him for incoming drones.
* BullyAndWimpPairing: This was his dynamic with Bakugou for years until Izuku's new spider powers shook things up.
* ButtMonkey: He’s on the receiving end of several gags involving his powers and is the butt of all sorts of jokes and slapstick.
* CannotTalkToWomen: Izuku isn't used to talking to girls because most would avoid him because he was Quirkless or because they thought he was weird because of his FanBoy tendencies. He's at a loss for words when Jirou strikes up a conversation with him.
-->'''Jirou:''' Uh… you okay, man?\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[thinking]'' Oh, crap, she must think I'm weird! Okay Izuku, you need to be cool! Say anything before she starts backing away! ''[out loud]'' S-sorry. This is the first time I've talked to a girl! ''[thinking]'' You idiot! ''[out loud while sweating bullets]'' A-Ah! I-I didn't mean that! I mean, of course I've talked to girls but this is… um… I… ''[bows his head in shame]'' I-I'm sorry.
* CannotTellAJoke: The first joke Future Izuku cracks in the story is an awful {{Pun}} on web-swinging. It's implied to evoke a LamePunReaction from his listener(s). His teenage self also has a tendency to take Peter's jokes at face value.
* {{Capoeira}}: He uses spinning kicks from a crouched position while fighting Bakugou.
* CassandraTruth: Bakugou refuses to believe that Izuku's powers manifested out of nowhere and thinks Izuku has been hiding them for years despite his insistence otherwise.
* CentipedesDilemma: Izuku is hampered by his focus on the minute details of his powers while training with Peter, particularly when he's learning to use his web-shooters. Once he manages to relax and go with the flow, it begins to come to him more naturally.
* CharacterDevelopment: He's shy, nervous and constantly unsure of himself at the start of the story. After getting spider-powers and accepting Peter's tutelage, Izuku gradually become more social and cheerful despite his awkwardness. He also develops a propensity for snark and learns to stand up for himself when pushed, whether it's appropriate or not. His darker feelings of resentment and competitiveness come to the surface as well, telling himself that he's not going to hold back just to appease Bakugou's ego.
* CharacterNarrator: The story is primarily told from Izuku's point of view. He provides direct, first-person narration during lulls in the action and while transitioning between scenes.
* CharacterTics: Izuku tends to sweat when he's nervous and loudly but unintelligibly mumbles to himself when he's excited and/or deep in thought.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome:
** Izuku runs in to save Peter from the Prowler when no one else would. Even as his brain screamed at him to stop, he dodged all of the Pro Heroes' attempts to keep him away because he couldn't bear to watch someone die in front of him. He gets chewed out for this reckless stunt, but also gets praised for his wall-crawling and intangibility "Quirks". All Might also meets up with him to tell Izuku that this trait is what will make him an amazing Hero. RealityEnsues when the Prowler manages to nab him and threatens to run him through with her WolverineClaws for intervening.
** His first instinct when seeing the zero-point robot is to run as fast and far away as he can. But when he sees Uraraka pinned under rubble, he immediately makes an about face to run-in and help her.
* ClassicalAntiHero: Izuku is shy, nervous, scrawny, clumsy, and Quirkless at the start of the story. No one, not even himself, truly believes that he can become a Hero at first. His self-esteem is in the pits from years of bullying and he's frequently the laughingstock of everyone in class for wanting to become a Hero despite his DreamCrushingHandicap. Lampshaded by his future self in his narration.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[while discussing his TrainingMontage]'' I could've taken out a few self-help books to work through my deep-seated insecurities, crippling lack of self-esteem, and nonexistent social skills… But no. I decided to put that on the back burner and focus on some more practical things.
* ColorMotif: Green. Green hair, green eyes, green name, green bio-electricity e.t.c.
* CombatParkour: Peter teaches Izuku this over the course of their ten month training session. By the night before the exam, Izuku is effortlessly moonsaulting, spinning, WallRunning, {{Wall Jump}}ing, and soaring over each and every obstacle Peter can throw at him.
* ComboPlatterPowers: He has the proportionate strength, speed, durability, and agility of a spider, WallCrawling, as well as the ability to emit bio-electric shocks powerful enough to briefly stun Peter. He later discovers his ability to bleed through objects by turning into static and builds his own web-shooters. He also possesses incredible stamina, barely breaking a sweat when most others are panting and aching from exertion.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Peter is surprised to learn that Izuku has long since learned this lesson and is excited to learn how to help people as a superhero rather than trying to enrich himself.
* TheComicallySerious: Izuku sometimes has trouble taking a joke, taking Peter's comment about how gross his setules are at face value and apologizing for them. His future counterpart can spout lines like this:
-->'''Izuku:''' Side note, but I found out that Peter's 'incoming drone' exercise was pretty useful in the long run. Those mechanical monstrosities are truly the bane of the modern Hero's existence.
* CoolMask: The mask of his costume is equipped with an HUD that provides GPS and a Bluetooth connection as well as monitoring his web fluid levels. Unfortunately, it doesn't automatically adjust for light until Izuku remembers to set it up, which is long after he's made a fool of himself while running late to class.
* CompositeCharacter: Izuku is this of his canon counterpart and ComicBook/MilesMorales as depicted in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse''. He's got the history, motivation, and mindset of his canon counterpart, but his role as Peter's student, his Venom Strike ability, and confusion regarding alternate universes is taken from Miles. Izuku also shows the same appreciation for hip-hop Miles has, albeit it's considered "classical" in Izuku's time.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Izuku is astonished to learn that his great-great-grandparents had Quirks that would neatly explain his WallCrawling and {{Intangibility}} powers. This makes it a lot easier for him to pass off his new spider-powers as a Quirk to his mother, but he doesn't want to push his luck by demonstrating any of his other abilities.
* CoverBlowingSuperpower: While having superpowers is normal in Izuku's universe, having so ''many'' isn't, especially with how varied and seemingly unrelated his powers are. [[spoiler:U.A.'s faculty takes note of this during the exam and immediately figures out that he doesn't have a Quirk when his phasing power gives off readings unlike any the proctors have seen before.]]
* CowardlyLion: Izuku is naturally timid and easily startled, but he can be recklessly brave when other people's lives are on the line.
* CreepyGood: Calling back to Steve Ditko's horror days, the story's Fanfiction.net blurb refers to Izuku as the "world's strangest Hero" as Spider-Man. His wall-crawling and stunt where he nearly got hit by a car unnerved people present.
* CultureClash: He's horrified when Peter describes ComicBook/CivilWar to him and is astonished that Peter has had such a rough time with the police and the government. Having grown up in a world where superheroes were commonplace and widely-accepted, the miniature war the Marvel heroes started was unthinkable for Izuku.
* CuriosityIsACrapshoot: Izuku's decision to investigate the purple-clad figure is what got him bitten by the spider. On one hand, he got spider-powers. On the other, he was put into a coma for two days and nearly died.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: Izuku's green eyes match his hair.
* DeadpanSnarker: Izuku is genuinely sweet and polite, but he has his own streak of wittiness that he keeps to himself.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[referring to his punishment for ditching school]'' The fact that my 'Quirk' had just awakened probably convinced them to be more lenient. Lucky me.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Izuku's and Jirou's plan to defeat Bakugou during the exercise went off without a hitch and would have swung it in their favor... [[spoiler:if they remembered to wrap capture tape around him. Because of this, he's allowed to rejoin the fight and discovers that he can melt Izuku's webbing, turning the tide of the fight.]]
* DramaticStutter: Izuku stutters when he's nervous and sometimes when he's excited. He also tends to stutter when he lies. He chastises himself for this, as people will think he's brain damaged if all he does is stutter in front of them.
* DreamCrushingHandicap: Izuku has been tormented his whole life for wanting to be a Hero without a Quirk. On some level, he acknowledged that it really was impossible for him to reasonably become a Hero, but he didn't want to let it go. Luckily, one spider bite is all it takes to do away with this handicap.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: While dodging Bakugou's explosion in class, Izuku grips his desk hard as he ducks, accidentally smashing and crushing it to pieces. When Kamui Woods arrives to pick Izuku up, he accidentally puts the Hero's hand in a death grip before he's asked to ease up. After the Prowler incident, he accidentally pushes Bakugou all the way down the hallway while trying to avoid a fight and struggles to avoid snapping his pencils in half. Peter remedies this by making Izuku practice squeezing stress balls until he can grip one without permanently flattening it. He spends weeks destroying stress balls until he finally has a good grasp on his strength.
* DorkKnight: Izuku is sweet, kind, and polite to a T as well as horribly awkward in social situations. Even his future self, who has since become one of his world's greatest Heroes, has to beg the reader to stay when he starts to bore them with his Raimi-like opening.
* EmotionalBruiser: Izuku is a softie who cries whenever he's feeling emotional. Within a few minutes, he cried tears of shame for putting everyone in danger when he ran at the Prowler, TearsOfJoy when All Might tells him that he's going to be an amazing Hero, and regret again when he apologizes for not accepting Peter's offer earlier. He's also got enough Spider-Strength to crush a desk completely by accident and lift ten tons of equipment.
* EntertaininglyWrong:
** After realizing that he has gotten spider-powers from the spider bite, Izuku wonders if the spider was radioactive and comes to a reasonable (but wrong) conclusion.
--->'''Izuku:''' B-But how could a spider bite do this!? N-No wait, there was something wrong with that spider! Was the reason Prowler was tracking it because her employer was doing experiments on it?! Oh god... was it actually radioactive like the one from Spider-Man?! ''[eyes widen]'' Do I have cancer now?!
** Izuku is too shaken by all of the revelations Peter dropped into his lap to accept Peter's offer to mentor him right off the bat. He then places money on the table for their meal and for Peter to go get a bath before running out the door. When he finally stops, he wonders what Peter, who is homeless and lonely, must be thinking of Izuku for just ditching him. The answer?
--->'''Peter:''' Kid's smarter than I was at his age.
* {{Expy}}: Izuku is one of Peter, a BornUnlucky scrawny nerd who was granted amazing powers by a stroke of luck and uses them to help others rather than himself. Kōhei Horikoshi, the author of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', has said in an interview that Spider-Man's philosophy was the major inspiration for Izuku's. This story takes it one step further by making him Spider-Man.
* FaceYourFears: He forces himself to go jump off the more than 2,000-foot-tall Bespi Tower to get over his fear of heights. It works so well that he's excited to start jumping off buildings in the future.
* FamedInStory: Izuku becomes a local celebrity after the Prowler incident, getting called "Prowler Kid" on the street and people stop to take pictures with him. Izuku is unnerved by his new fame, as he's spent most of his life invisible when he's not being laughed at or beaten up. His fame at school only grows after he unintentionally humiliates Bakugou. He also understands that his newfound popularity is fleeting and is wary of people who want to use him for it.
* FanBoy: Izuku loves Heroes and wants to become one more than anything even though he's Quirkless.
* FirstPersonSmartass: Izuku is sweet and polite most of the time, but has a biting wit that he doesn't share with anyone else.
* FirstTimeFeeling: He's ecstatic when he realizes he isn't dreaming and that these new powers of his are here to stay, rendering years upon years of derision for being Quirkless meaningless.
* FlatWhat: Izuku's reaction to learning that the guy in the Spider-Man costume is Peter Parker.
* {{Foil}}:
** Peter and Izuku were scrawny nerds who were given the chance to become {{Action Hero}}es and are both motivated by their ChronicHeroSyndrome. Peter is a veteran who has been in the business for decades and has been ground down by everything he's lost in his crusade to help people. He's motivated by his failure to stop the crook who killed Uncle Ben, but that mantra has become far more bitter in recent years and he sometimes wishes he could just stop. Despite this, he's confident and great at what he does, hoping to keep Izuku from stumbling on his own path towards becoming a Hero. Izuku just got his powers and has no idea what he's doing. He has always wanted to be a Hero, having been inspired by
All Might's example rather than personal tragedy. paperwork for him and the two are constantly exchanging information on ongoing crime.
* EntertaininglyWrong: Tsukauchi wonders what must be going through the "Spider-Man copycat's" head to make him resort to vigilantism. At that moment, Peter is just thinking about how hungry he is.
* SecretKeeper:
He's jittery and unsure of himself, wondering if he'd just be wasting Peter's time by becoming his student. Peter is also a [[YouFightLikeACow constant quipper]] and jokester, while Izuku CannotTellAJoke.
** To Bakugou. Izuku is the BornUnlucky NervousWreck who dreams of being a cool Hero whose smile could make others feel safe like All Might, but was stuck with his GeekPhysique and DreamCrushingHandicap until the spider bite. Bakugou is a BornWinner with smarts, athleticism, and a powerful Quirk. He primarily wants to become a Hero to prove how strong he is, as he admires the indomitable strength of All Might.
* ForegoneConclusion: The first "issue" ends with Izuku declaring that he becomes
one of the world's greatest Heroes as Spider-Man.
* FormerlyFit: Inverted. Izuku went from scrawny nerd to muscled and athletic after the spider bite. He goes from being almost dead-last in P.E. to easily outpacing the naturally athletic Bakugou in almost every activity. His new physique also comes with stamina and energy he never had before, turning exercise that would have left him completely winded into a light workout. He needs to really push himself for him to feel tired at all, like carrying literal tons of equipment or lapping the city several times in a row.
* ForWantOfANail: The story begins when Izuku decides to turn down an alleyway rather than cross under a shady underpass. He gets bitten by a genetically-modified spider instead of attacked by the Sludge Villain, which sets him down a completely different path.
* GeekPhysique: Izuku's mom used to complain about how skinny he was and how he'd never touch his food. He was always one of the worst
few people in P.E. and Izuku himself acknowledges this. One spider bite is all it takes to give him a rock solid body that turns exertion that would have left him a sweaty mess into a light workout.
* GeniusBruiser: Peter schools Izuku in the ins-and-outs of being Spider-Man, making him absorb college-level material to design his own web-shooters and come up with his own web fluid formula.
* GreenEyedMonster: Downplayed. Izuku is rather jealous and resentful of people with Quirks after being ostracized as the only Quirkless kid around for years. He buries this resentment underneath his admiration for Heroes, but it leaks out in his internal dialogue until he gains his spider-powers. Bonus points for having actual green eyes.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Has this relationship with Jirou while they're paired up in the Heroes vs. Villains exercise. His spider-powered physical abilities make him the frontline brawler even with his ability to tie up people and get around quickly with his web-shooters. Meanwhile, Jirou's relatively little training in hand-to-hand combat and powerful ranged Quirk make her the "shoot" of the pair.
* HappilyMarried: Implied, given that Future Izuku insists that his wife is ''fine'' after his teenage self wonders if he has cancer or if his blood is radioactive.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Played straight then subverted. Izuku acknowledges that no matter how studious he was, he simply wasn't strong or fast enough to be a Hero without a Quirk. After the spider bite and accepting Peter's tutelage, Izuku throws his all into preparing to become Spider-Man, staying well into the night to cram college-level material into his head and slowly getting the hang of his new powers.
* HarmlessElectrocution:
** Discussed and played straight. When Izuku's Venom Strike activates for the first time, he's horrified and worries that he fried Peter's brain, racing to call a hospital until Peter stops him.
** This also contributes to Izuku's hesitation to use it during the Heroes vs. Villains exercise. It's one thing to use it on a guy with SuperToughness and a HealingFactor, it's another thing to hit someone without either of those things with enough voltage to shock them unconscious.
* TheHero: Izuku is about as kind, selfless, and as straightforwardly heroic as you can get, only hampered by his confidence issues and inexperience.
* HeroesFrontierStep: While he wasn't powerless at the time, his decision to rush in to help Peter when none of the Heroes could once again inspires All Might to save the day and give Izuku the pep talk he needed to chase his dreams.
* HeroicBuild: When Izuku comes to in the hospital, he's surprised to find that he's now built like an acrobat with noticeable pecs, pumped up arms and legs, and six-pack abs. He can't stop gawking at himself in the mirror a week later and admires how his middle school uniform looks less baggy on him and commissioned fanart shows it clinging to his shoulders and chest. It becomes inconvenient when he discovers that the Spider-Man costume he bought to wear while training with Peter doesn't fit him well because of his new muscles, chafing around his crotch and rear.
* HeroicRROD: Izuku suffers from intense nausea and vertigo while using his phasing powers, limiting his usage of it because he has to fight to not blow chunks while passing through a single wall.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation:
** Izuku doesn't know what to say when Peter offers to teach him. He's excited and honored that a veteran Hero would take interest in him at all. At the same time, Izuku worries that he isn't worth Peter's time and could be impeding him from finding a way home. He ends up asking for more time to think about it.
--->'''Izuku:''' ''[biting his lip nervously as he looks at the ground]'' B-But am I really worth it?I was Quirkless… I was just a fanboy who couldn't let go of his impossible dream. I haven't even had these powers for a full day. Can I really do it? What if I mess up and just keep him from finding a way home?
** After this, he begins berating himself for bailing on Peter, since he'd been given the chance of a lifetime and just slinked away. He wonders if he was really capable of becoming a Hero if he suffers this kind of indecision, especially since Peter does it every day with an infinitely harder lifestyle.
** Peter warns Izuku against this, reminding him that the only person he needs to prove himself to is himself. He shouldn't care about meeting the expectations of his peers if it just makes him unhappy.
--->'''Peter:''' I made a lot of mistakes, but one of the biggest was thinking I had to prove myself to anyone and everyone I've ever met. From Jameson to Captain America, and sometimes that gave me a lot of grief. ''[pokes Izuku in the chest]'' So don't think you have to go above and beyond just to impress others or prove that you're 'good enough' for them. The only person you have to prove yourself to… is you.
* HeroWorshipper:
** Izuku is one of All Might's biggest fans. His bedroom is plastered
entrusted with All Might's merchandise secret identity and All Might's heroics are what inspired Izuku to want to become a Hero in the first place. He even started learning English just to listen to All Might's Christmas album. This also extends to Heroes in general, giving Izuku nearly-encyclopedic knowledge secret of the capabilities and equipment of Heroes and Villains. He feels scandalized when Peter calls All Might a show off for his BigDamnHeroes moment. When All Might arrives to speak with him one-on-one, Izuku accidentally blurts "I love you!" while trying to work up the nerve to say something. It holds him back while learning to fight with Peter, as Izuku naturally tries to imitate his lifelong idol. It isn't until Peter points out that Izuku isn't All Might and doesn't have the same powers does Izuku start trying to think and fight like Spider-Man.
** Izuku is also this to Bakugou, constantly admiring Bakugou's achievements and following him around in hopes of becoming just as strong and brave as him. Izuku's refusal to let his mom call Mitsuki about Bakugou's behavior allowed everyone to feed Bakugou's ego even more. They've since drifted apart, with Future Izuku even pitying what Bakugou was at the time.
* HiddenDepths: Izuku is sweet guy with a natural inclination to save people. But on some level he's [[GreenEyedMonster envious and resentful]] of people who have Quirks when he didn't, as shown by some of his bitter internal snarking and cursing how everyone is constantly reminding him that he's Quirkless. Even after gaining spider powers, the snark doesn't truly go away and he's disturbed by how frequently he lets these thoughts come to the surface now that he doesn't have to take anyone's crap anymore. [[spoiler:During his fight against Bakugou, the dark feelings dredged up by his Venom Strike spill over, resulting in a blistering TheReasonYouSuckSpeech where Izuku deconstructs Bakugou's worldview.]]
* HonorBeforeReason: During the Heroes vs. Villains exercise, he's fixated on fighting and beating Bakugou in order to prove his merit and fulfill his promise to Mitsuki to be there for him. Jirou calls him out on this, as things could have been much easier if they had simply avoided him, but helps Izuku come up with a plan to take him down without a huge fight.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Izuku struggles to control all of his new spider powers when they start developing one after the other on his first day back at school. He makes a fool of himself when his WallCrawling powers stick a kendo club flyer to his hand, waving it around while trying to shake it off. In class, he [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength accidentally destroys his desk]] with his new SuperStrength while dodging one of Bakugou's explosions. While fleeing school, he slams almost face-first into a wall after [[InASingleBound he jumps twenty feet in the air]] to avoid an oncoming truck. After ''that'' Izuku's [[ShockAndAwe Venom Strike]] power electrocutes Peter when Izuku mistakes him for a mugger.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: He's spent most of his life as an outcast because of his Quirklessness and is excited when people start treating him like he's a normal person instead of a Quirkless loser. He breaks down the moment it seems like it will be taken all away when [[spoiler:U.A. reveals that it knows he doesn't have a Quirk]] and Peter believes Izuku is terrified of going from "outcast" to "freak" after having a taste of the normalcy he craved for years.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: All his life, Izuku wanted to have a Quirk of his own so he could chase his dreams of becoming a Hero. He gets what he asked for when he's bitten by the spider, giving him powers on par with even Bakugou's Explosion.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends:
** Zig-zagged. Izuku is ecstatic when he realizes that people are talking to him as a "normal person" and not "Quirkless Deku" when people wouldn't even give him the time of day. But he's not so desperate for companionship that he'd just go along with his former tormentors since he knows they aren't being genuine.
** After an exhausting first day at U.A., Izuku is just happy to finally fit in, watching his new friends chatter away with a smile on his face.
--->'''Izuku:''' So this is what it's like...
* ILoveNuclearPower: He gives off intense amounts of unknown radiation while using his phasing powers. [[spoiler:This is what tips off U.A. and proves that his powers aren't just a Quirk.]]
* ImColdSoCold: Izuku felt ice-cold after being bitten by the spider just before he collapses. He survives, but the threat of death was there for him.
* InASingleBound: Izuku easily clears a ten-foot gate while fleeing from class. He leaps twenty feet into the air while dodging an oncoming truck the same day. At the U.A. Entrance Exam, he leaps to another building on the other side of the street.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: During the U.A. Entrance Exam, he stops smashing robots to chat with Sero and Jirou, who were struggling to keep up while he continues on effortlessly. Iida calls him out for this with a scathing TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
* InSeriesNickname:
** Izuku gets called "Deku" meaning a "wooden puppet" with connotations of being worthless for not being able to do anything on his own without a Quirk, by Bakugou and his cronies.
** He gets the moniker "Prowler Boy" and "Prowler Kid" when he tried to save Peter on live television.
** Mitsuki affectionately calls him "Izu-kun", making a {{Pun}} off his name.
* {{Irony}}: In the manga, Izuku gains
One For All after trying to save Bakugou and eating All Might's hair. Here, Izuku gets bitten by a spider and has to be saved by Bakugou. His One For All-wielding counterpart is also infamous for injuring himself to use his Quirk, while Spider-Izuku has a degree of SuperToughness, {{Intangibility}}, and a SpiderSense to mitigate or avoid harm.
* {{Intangibility}}: While running to save Peter from the Prowler, Izuku discovers that he can turn his body into multi-colored static that bleeds through objects, letting the Prowler's net and oncoming debris pass through him harmlessly. The downside is that it makes him nauseous and it fills his hearing with the sound of TV static. In addition, any electronics he passes through will explode, while organic objects will fuse into a mutated mess ala ''Film/TheFly''.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: 14-year-old Izuku strikes up a friendship with the 47-year-old Peter Parker.
* ItBeganWithATwistOfFate: Izuku would have never been bitten by the spider if he hadn't turned down that alleyway that day.
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Downplayed. Izuku can only use his Venom Strike once a day, meaning that he's limited to one use of it per fight at most. However, after a day's rest, he can use it again.
* ItsAllMyFault:
** He blames himself for Prowler attacking Peter, reasoning that if Peter hadn't extended a hand to him, then he wouldn't have been tracked down on social media. He also blames himself for not accepting Peter's offer right off the bat, but Peter disabuses him of that notion by saying he'd need to be worrying about Izuku's well-being on top of staying alive.
** He also blames himself for the fight between Katsuki and Mitsuki in the car, as Izuku's new "Quirk" is what's causing Katsuki's irritable behavior. But some part of Izuku's subconscious tried to reassure him otherwise.
* JapanesePoliteness: Izuku's English is initially formal and stilted due to a combination of his rock-bottom self-esteem, his guilt over electrocuting Peter, and his discomfort in actually using English. He also refers to Mitsuki as "Mitsuki oba-san" or roughly "Auntie Mitsuki", which is customary for children when referring to women older than them.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Subverted. Izuku ''wants'' to do this when Peter offers to teach him, but he's so unsure of himself and Peter's situation that he ends up asking for more time to think. Then it's played straight with Izuku's clear excitement over getting the chance to chase his dreams and help people, both of which surprise Peter, who wanted to monetize his powers at first.
* KeepingSecretsSucks:
** Izuku feels horrible about all the lies and half-truths he's feeding his mother to keep her from worrying about him or potentially calling the cops on Peter.
** He panics when he learns that [[spoiler:U.A. has figured out he doesn't have a Quirk]], breaking down while begging Peter for a solution to his predicament. Izuku is so scared that he forgets his usual UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics.
--->'''Izuku:''' ''[whispering]'' P-Peter... please, I’m scared. I don’t know what to do... I-I can’t lie about this anymore...
* KidHero: Izuku is just 14 when he first gets his spider-powers and plans on entering U.A. at 15.
* TheKlutz: Going along with his ButtMonkey tendencies, Izuku remains klutzy even after he gains SuperReflexes. He repeatedly slams into a wall while trying to get his phasing powers to work, gets his foot tangled in wires while trying to leap away from Bakugou, and has all the grace of a rock when he leaps from the top of a ferris wheel to start web-swinging for the first time. After finishing his web-swinging session at Bespi Tower, he realizes that he hasn't worked out his landings and has to roll onto the platform and down the stairs before he comes to a stop. Even after ten months of training, it takes fifteen attempts at Peter's obstacle course for Izuku to stick the landing, each one more painful than the last.
* LanguageBarrier: Subverted. Peter immediately assumes that Izuku won't be able to understand a word he says and tries to communicate through charades. He didn't count on Izuku responding in broken, but intelligible English. Of course, there are still plenty of words that Izuku doesn't know and he can't keep up if Peter speaks too quickly, but the language divide is far from insurmountable. While training to get into U.A., he and Peter decide to completely bridge the gap by teaching each other English and Japanese respectively.
-->'''Izuku:''' I can tell and hear English, sir.\\
'''Peter:''' You can understand...? ''[sighs and {{facepalm}}s]'' Smooth, Peter. You just made yourself look like an ass in front of a teenager.
* LegacyCharacter: Izuku is set to become Peter's student and his universe's version of Spider-Man. This motivates him to work even harder, as he wants to live up to Peter's and All Might's faith that he'll become a great Hero.
* LightningBruiser: He's faster than any Olympic athlete, can flatten robots with a single punch, and is tough enough to take just as well as he can give. While his durability is mainly limited to blunt impacts, almost nothing in the U.A. Entrance Exam could even slow him down. During Aizawa's Quirk Apprehension Test, Izuku manages to score in second, ahead of Bakugou, thanks to his raw physical ability.
* LuminescentBlush:
** Izuku turns bright red when Peter starts alluding to the effects of puberty and his new spider-powers. He turns even redder after he accidentally blurts "I love you!" to All Might, who laughs it off. He blushes again when he's too embarrassed to tell Peter about the rashes he's been getting on his thighs, joints, and crotch from his Spider-Man costume.
** He turns red from his head to his toes when he realizes that he pressed a girl against his chest while rescuing her and is later caught by Jirou in a BridalCarry.
* MessyHair: His curly hair is never combed. Iida even refers to him by said hair.
* MissedTheCall: It's implied that Izuku could have been All Might's successor if they had just met a few days earlier.
* MistakenForMasturbating: Izuku beats around the bush while trying to explain that his training costume is giving him rashes on his thighs, joints, and crotch. Peter is led to this conclusion and tells Izuku to talk to someone else until Izuku clarifies himself.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[motioning to his thighs]'' Um, Peter-san? Do you normally... become red? ''[blushes deeply]''\\
'''Peter:''' Huh? Um, kid, that's kinda not a thing you should be talking about with me.\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[turns even redder]'' N-No!
* MommasBoy: Because his father works overseas, Izuku is especially close to his mom, calling her the best mom ever. He hates to worry her and can't wait to tell her about his new powers, but dreads of thought of explaining why he ditched school. After the Prowler incident, he comes home to see his mom in tears and instantly feels terrible about how worried he made her. He feels even worse about having to lie to her constantly about his powers and his activities but doesn't want to worry her more than he already has.
* MoodWhiplash:
** PlayedForLaughs. As shown by the quote under ThisIsMyStory, Izuku tries to be super dramatic and deliberate in his opening narration, only for it to fall apart into comedic begging as his audience stops caring and starts to leave.
** PlayedForDrama when [[spoiler:All Might tells him that U.A. knows that Izuku doesn't have a Quirk.]] He goes from overwhelming joy to hysterics and complete terror, frantically calling Peter for advice while fighting the urge to scream.
* MotorMouth: Izuku mumbles to himself when he's nervous or deep in thought, spewing out a WallOfText until he's cut off or asked to stop.
-->'''Izuku:''' ''[muttering in class]'' T-the possibilities of this Quirk are limitless! With these I can be able to hold myself onto fast-moving vehicles without much trouble... n-no wait I'll probably need to train my body to handle the velocity. Oh! Wait, recon! Scouting out a villain's location and observing the situation is also a possibility for this Quirk...!\\
'''Bakugou:''' Deku...\\
'''Izuku:''' But wait, I'll also need to train my upper body before I go to U.A.... t-that shouldn't be a problem now! I'm pretty sure there are tons of training programs online for people with Quirks that allow them to scale buildings!\\
'''Bakugou:''' Deku...!\\
'''Izuku:''' Man, I need to tell Mom as soon as possible! T-This Quirk probably came from someone in her or Dad's family and I can get advice from them! Yes, that's it! I...!\\
'''Bakugou:''' [[BigShutUp SHUT THE HELL UP!]]
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Zig-zagged. Sure, Izuku is ripped for a teenager thanks to the spider bite and [[MusclesAreMeaningful it shows his increased strength and athleticism]], but his lean, acrobatic physique isn't indicative of how he can lift refrigerators with one hand and carry a maximum of ten tons.
* MundaneUtility: Izuku quickly finds that his new "Quirk" comes with a lot of perks. His SpiderSense let him avoid getting clocked in the head in the middle of a busy crowd, WallCrawling proved handy for escaping bullies by sticking to walls and ceilings out of sight, and SuperSpeed is a huge help when he's rushing to get a katsu bun before the school store runs out.
-->These Spider-Powers sure were handy at times…
* MustHaveCaffeine: Izuku ends up putting a coffee machine in his room while trying to cram college-level physics, chemistry, and mechanical engineering into his head in time to build his own web-shooters.
* NerdActionHero:
** He's a Hero nerd to the nth degree and is gifted with the powers of Spider-Man. He even lampshades it, saying that his life became something out of an action movie after getting his powers.
** Prior to the U.A. Entrance Exam, Izuku is surprised when Bakugou doesn't call him a nerd for ten minutes. He immediately lampshades how sad that sounds.
* NervousWreck: Izuku is easily startled and sweats constantly from nervousness. He can't help but quiver while standing in front of U.A. even after ten months of training with the real Spider-Man.
* NiceGuy: Izuku is sweet, honest, and polite, dreaming of the day he can devote his life to helping others as a Hero. He almost always puts others before himself and is extremely empathetic to people in trouble.
* OcularGushers: Izuku and his mom sob uncontrollably after he wakes up from the coma the spider bite put him into. Peter is taken aback by how much Izuku can cry in one day.
* OnlyFriend: In a way, Izuku is the only one in Bakugou's social circle to actually care about him as a person, promising Mitsuki that he'll stand by him when the rest of their peers abandoned Bakugou. He's also the universe-displaced Peter's only confidant.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In the climax of their brawl during the Heroes vs. Villains exercise, [[spoiler:Izuku calls Bakugou by his first name instead of Kacchan, the first time he'd done so in years. In fact, Bakugou freezes because of how rare this is.]]
* PainfulTransformation: The spider bite was excruciating to Izuku, who felt as though he'd been stabbed by an icicle before every one of his nerves lit on fire. He felt ice cold before [[VomitIndiscretionShot emptying his lunch]] on the street and collapsing, waking up covered in sweat with a hoarse throat after spending two days in a coma.
* ParentalSexualitySquick: Downplayed. After an ImagineSpot gives Izuku a RagingStiffie, he desperately tries to get it to go away by trying to ThinkUnsexyThoughts. One of the images he brings up is his parents kissing.
* PersonalityPowers: A ShrinkingViolet Hero FanBoy who enjoys reading comic books gets the powers of one of the most famous comic book heroes of all time. He also developed {{Intangibility}}, going along with his CowardlyLion tendencies and how invisible he was to the world until he got his powers.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He isn't especially tall, coming up at [=5'5''=], but he's strong enough to carry ten tons of appliances before faltering and can crush a desk to pieces completely by accident.
* PowerIncontinence: Izuku struggles to use his phasing and Venom Strike powers at first because he can't figure out the trigger. While he manages to learn that the former could be activated through a fight-or-flight response, the latter continues to elude him during the first half of his ten months of training for the U.A. Entrance Exam. He also can't control his new Spider-Strength at first, going through dozens of stress balls while trying to learn how to limit it so he doesn't break anything he doesn't want to.
* PowerMisidentification: Unwilling to believe that the spider bite gave him the powers of Spider-Man, Izuku initially tries to rationalize the hairs growing on his hands as a latent Quirk awakened by the spider bite. But when he discovers his SpiderSense, SuperStrength, and WallCrawling powers, he quickly realizes that there's no way this could just be a Quirk. After the Prowler incident, he continues to pass off his abilities as a strange Quirk to avoid unwanted attention. He ends up referring to his abilities as "Ghost Spider" while sending in his Quirk registration forms.
* PowerOfHate: Izuku's Venom Strike is activated by his long-repressed feelings of resentment and desire to lash out at others for grinding him for all his life.
* PrecisionFStrike: Izuku sometimes curses with "damn" or "crap", but keeps it to himself rather than aiming the curses at anyone else. It's only when he's truly pissed that he calls Bakugou an "asshole" for his behavior.
* ProjectileWebbing: His web-shooters work identically to Peter's, producing lines of spider silk-like thread that instantly bind to whatever they hit and can make webs on impact.
* TheProtagonist: Izuku is the primary viewpoint character of the story, which is being narrated through his perspective.
* PsychoactivePowers: Izuku discovers that his less-spidery powers are tied to his emotions, managing to activate his phasing power at will by latching onto the terror he felt when running at the Prowler. He later learns that his Venom Strike is activated by his desire to strike back and hurt others out of feelings of frustration and resentment, which troubles him until Peter assures him that it's alright as long as he channels those feelings towards helping others.
* PubertySuperpower: Izuku's powers are mistaken for these because of how long it took for him to get his so-called "Quirk".
* RageBreakingPoint: Izuku blames the Quirk-obsessed nature of society for Bakugou's relationship with him and continues to rationalize his behavior until the Heroes vs. villains exercise. Bakugou continues to deride Izuku throughout it, saying that even with his new powers, Izuku is still the same worthless nobody he was before. After a certain point, Izuku snaps, immediately punching Bakugou hard enough to make him nearly puke before giving him a blistering speech about how much of an asshole he is.
* RagingStiffie: Izuku has an ImagineSpot of Jirou with his arms around him, her body pressing against his and him feeling every part of her through his skintight costume while he climbs up a building. Then, while trying to don't think about it, he remembers how skintight Uraraka's costume is. He's implied to have gotten a hard-on and has to ThinkUnsexyThoughts to get rid of it, being thankful that male superheroes like him wear groin protection while out in the field.
* RealityEnsues:
** A frequent complaint in the fandom is, "If Izuku wanted to become a Hero so badly, why didn't he train his [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower mind and body]] like Franchise/{{Batman}}?" Izuku ''has'' thought about doing this, but he's a wimpy, nerdy kid with his own hobbies. It would be unrealistic for him to drop everything and start vigorously training his body like some comic book character when he knew deep down that being a BadassNormal wasn't practical in the long-term on his Earth. He also had no clear goal or guide to get him there, as no one wanted to deal with a Quirkless kid. As anyone who starts a diet or intense physical training can attest, it's not easy to start it, much less go through with it, without help.
--->It was sad, really. Clinging to his dream despite his condition. One would think he would devote his mind and body to training, like one of those comic characters of old... But that was fiction. This was reality.
** It isn't healthy to try and sleep off a venomous spider bite. Izuku nearly died and went into a short coma even after Bakugou rushes him to a hospital to get him medical treatment.
** Izuku tries to sneak away from Bakugou by trying to jump onto a rooftop from the ground. But he doesn't watch where he's jumping in the middle of a dense, crowded city and gets his foot snagged on a telephone wire that drops him into a pile of garbage bags.
** When confronted by Katsuki in Mitsuki's car, she asks who threw the first punch. Izuku is tempted to take the heat if only because that's what happened in cheesy high school dramas where the victim gains the bully's respect for being the bigger man. But since Izuku knew this wasn't the case, he kept his mouth shut, forcing Katsuki to admit his fault.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Peter points out that Izuku's arms would pop off if he didn't have the SuperStrength and SuperToughness to handle web-swinging. Izuku also finds that he's more flexible after the spider bite, which makes it a lot easier for him to learn how to move like Spider-Man and pull off moves that could have broken his back if he attempted them before the bite.
* RunningGag:
** Izuku has a bad habit of slamming into walls or being faceplanted into the ground for one reason or another. Lampshaded in the first issue.
--->This wasn't going to become a thing, was it?
** Izuku laments that his SpiderSense tends to fail him at the worst of times. It never triggers while he's sparring with Peter, allowing him to get repeatedly faceplanted by his mentor. It also doesn't trigger when Bakugou waits in the hall for Izuku in school, despite the former's loudly announced desire to beat the crap out of him.
--->'''Izuku:''' Spider-Sense, you have failed me again.
* SamaritanSyndrome: Izuku is utterly terrified of the Prowler, but he rushes in anyways when he sees that no one else was going to help Peter.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After destroying a desk with his newfound SuperStrength, Izuku bolts from class when he sees the absolutely livid expression on Bakugou's face. He has the same reaction when Bakugou declares his intention to make mince meat out of him the day after. He spends the next few weeks ducking into classrooms and hiding on walls and ceilings to avoid Bakugou.
* ShockAndAwe: Izuku possesses the same Venom Strike power as ComicBook/MilesMorales, accidentally electrocuting Peter and sending him flying backward. However, it's much more limited, as he can only use it once a day and it's only powerful enough to stun someone for a few minutes rather than render them unconscious.
* ShrinkingViolet: Izuku is shy and awkward after more than a decade of being ostracized and bullied by his peers. He's constantly unsure of himself and shrinks underneath his own fame after the Prowler incident. Despite his timidity, he isn't spineless and is offended when Peter calls All Might a show off. He later angrily shouts at Peter for throwing a rock at him to test his SpiderSense.
* SleepDeprivation: Izuku stays up all night while trying to learn about the chemistry and physics behind making his own web fluid and web-shooters.
* SociallyAwkwardHero:
** Izuku doesn't have much social experience thanks to being bullied or ignored by his peers for most of his life without a single person he could really call a friend. Peter happens to be the first one he's had in years. He also stumbles over himself when he's speaking to a girl for the first time.
** While sitting down at a bubble tea cafe with his new friends at U.A., Izuku muses that he hasn't hung out with anyone in years, only watching others do it or seeing it on TV or in the movies. As a result, he's laughably bad at making small talk.
* SomethingPerson: He's Spider-Man, of course!
* SpiderSense: Izuku's powers come with the classic Spider-Sense, alerting him when Bakugou was sending an explosion at him and ensuring that he managed to jump out of the way of an oncoming truck. It doesn't work when the person doing it is someone Izuku trusts unconditionally, like Peter, and will only activate when Izuku is in serious danger of harm. Getting hit by a rock in the shoulder might hurt, but it's not going to leave him reeling in the way an explosion to the face would. Izuku's Spider-Sense seems to be weaker than Peter's in general, as it refused to activate even as Peter repeatedly faceplants Izuku during their sparring sessions nor does it go off when Bakugou waits for Izuku in the hallway.
* {{Squee}}: Izuku's default response to meeting anyone on the long list of Heroes he admires is this.
* StarstruckSpeechless:
** Izuku meets All Might after the Prowler incident and is totally tongue-tied. He desperately tries to work up the nerve to say ''something'', only to blurt out "I love you!", to his intense embarrassment. He's finally able to speak properly after All Might starts asking him questions.
** Izuku can only gasp and {{Squee}} when he learns Present Mic will be proctoring the exam before rattling off everything he knows about him in a hushed squeal.
* StickySituation: He embarrasses himself on his first day back at school when he desperately tries to shake off the kendo club flyer off his hand after his WallCrawling powers develop. A few hours later, he accidentally destroys his desk and a few pieces of it are still sticking to his palms. He gets the hang of it soon enough and lets go as he bolts for the door.
* SuperSpeed: Downplayed. Izuku isn't able to run like Ingenium or All Might, but he can still run faster than an Olympic sprinter while also performing all sorts of death-defying acrobatics to get around even more quickly. He outpaces everyone in his group at the U.A. Entrance Exam except for Iida and still ends up at the head of the pack thanks to being able to run along a nearby building.
* SuperReflexes: Izuku's powers come with a boost to his reflexes, ducking under one of Bakugou's explosions as if it were in slow motion and jumping out of the way on an oncoming car in a split second. They aren't infallible, as he fell flat on his face after Peter webbed him by accident while being blown backward by Izuku's Venom Strike.
* SuperStrength:
** Izuku is strong enough to accidentally smash his desk to pieces while trying to dodge one of Bakugou's explosions. He later shoves Bakugou all the way down a hallway when he meant to lightly push him and begins snapping his pencils in two. He also notices that exercise that would have left him utterly winded before the spider-bite feels like light exercise with his new abilities. Peter decides to test Izuku's strength by throwing kitchen appliances and old roller coaster cars at him and webbing them together, estimating that Izuku can lift a maximum of ten tons before keeling over from the strain. Peter tries to increase Izuku's strength further by slowly piling on additional weight over the course of their ten-month training session.
** By the U.A. Entrance Exam, Izuku is easily crushing the robots with his punches and tearing them apart with his bare hands.
* SuperToughness: His powers come with a measure of this, which is why he's in pain but otherwise uninjured after running into a wall over and over while trying to get his phasing ability to work. He's also convinced that he could probably survive a fifty-foot drop onto hard asphalt if he didn't land on his neck, but he's also aware that it would hurt a ton. He's also perfectly fine after swinging down from a streetlight and punching a robot hard enough to flatten it like a tin can.
* TakeOurWordForIt: Izuku tells the reader that the less they knew about the pork chops he phased through, the better.
* TenderTears: Izuku cries easily whenever he's feeling particularly joyful or sad. He has to fight back tears while thinking about how pathetic his own problems were when compared to Peter's tortured personal life. He also gets teary eyed when Peter is telling him how Thor sacrificed himself for the sake of Earth and his daughter, Torunn.
* TeachMeHowToFight: Well, more like "Teach me how to become a Hero", but Izuku's acceptance of Peter's offer comes across like this.
* TechnicolorLightning: The electricity Izuku emits is green to match his ColorMotif.
* TemptingFate: After hearing about his admission to U.A., Izuku feels like nothing could bring him down now. [[spoiler:Then he learns that U.A ''knows'' he doesn't have a Quirk and wants to question him about it.]]
* ThemeNaming: After realizing that he has the powers of Spider-Man, Izuku starts referring to his new abilities as Spider-X, including his SpiderSense and Spider-Stamina.
* TheyWouldCutYouUp: After [[spoiler:All Might informs him that U.A. knows he doesn't have a Quirk]], Izuku quickly flies into a panic about whether he'll be dragged away to a lab and never get to attend U.A. According to Nezu, [[ProperlyParanoid this was definitely a possibility.]]
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Subverted. After he and Jirou [[spoiler:tie up Bakugou, Izuku goes on a short speech about how he's not going to shirk under the name of Deku anymore. But this just wastes time they could have been using to get to the bomb, and in their haste to leave they forget to tie the capture tape around him, which lets him reenter the fight.]]
* ThinkUnsexyThoughts: After an ImagineSpot of having Jirou's arms around him while he climbs up a building (and accidentally remembering how Uraraka felt and her costume), Izuku quickly thinks of All Might giving a speech, his parents kissing, and finally Nezu in a bikini to get his RagingStiffie to go away.
* ThisCannotBe:
** Izuku's initial response to discovering the full breadth of his spider-powers is that it was completely impossible for him to have the powers of a fictional character. He has the same reaction when he runs into Peter Parker not long afterward.
--->'''Izuku:''' N-No. That's... that's... ''[bolts out of class out of fright and unease]'' This is impossible... it's impossible!
** All of his unease is replaced with giddiness as he realizes that what's happening ''can't'' be impossible because he's not dreaming as he climbs up the building.
--->'''Izuku:''' This isn't a dream. This isn't an impossibility. This is... This is actually happening!
* ThisIsMyStory: Parodied. Izuku tries to be dramatic and deliberate when his narration opens the story, but he quickly bores his audience and he has to beg them to stay with his usual dorkiness, as shown by the opening lines.
-->'''Izuku:''' Do you want to know my story? Are you '''sure''' you want to know? The tale I'm going to spin isn't for the faint of heart and... [[MoodWhiplash Wait! Wait, don't go!]] [[DorkKnight O-Okay look, this is the first time I've told anybody what happened like this, so please be patient!]] Our story begins like a lot of manga and comics do... in middle school.
* ThisIsReality: Izuku initially tries to dismiss his budding spider powers as just a latent Quirk because he lives in reality, not a comic book. He thinks the phrase again when he dismisses the idea of TakingTheHeat for Bakugou, as the "showing the bully who is the bigger man" argument is something that only works in cheesy high school dramas.
* ThinkingTic: Izuku mumbles loudly but unintelligibly to himself when he's thinking hard.
* TrainingFromHell: Getting powers and a naturally fit physique from the spider bite doesn't mean Izuku is excluded from this. Peter puts him through the wringer to prepare him for U.A., making him carry tons of appliances around, lap the entire city several times, and refine his SpiderSense by leaving rusty nails and other dangerous objects lying around that he could step on. Izuku admits it wasn't fun, but since he was trying to get into the greatest Hero school in the world, he had to make sure he deserved to be there.
* UnderwearOfPower: Invoked. Izuku is fully aware that many heroes wore their underwear on the outside of their costume just in case the costume tore. He decides to slip a pair of exercise shorts over the ill-fitting Spider-Man costume he bought in case he has an [[WardrobeMalfunction "accident."]]
* UnSorcerer: On Izuku's Earth, 80% of people are born with a superpower called a Quirk. He's one of the unlucky 20% to be born without one. It doesn't stick, because he develops spider-powers in his last year of middle school after a spider bite, but he's still technically Quirkless.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Justified. When Izuku dodges an oncoming truck by leaping twenty feet into the air, the crowd at the crosswalk merely brushes him off for worrying them when he had a "Quirk" like that. Of course, they had no way of knowing that he was Quirkless just a few days ago. Then it's subverted when Kamui Woods says that Izuku's stunt is making people nervous and they called for a Hero to get him down.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: If Izuku tries to speak while phasing, his voice is distorted to sound like four people are speaking at once: one close, one far away, one loud, and one soft.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: The spider bite makes Izuku so nauseous that he ends up puking on the street before collapsing. He pukes again after using his phasing power for the second time, this time all over the floor Peter just mopped.
* WallCrawling: Izuku has tiny hairs growing on his hands and feet that he can use to stick to walls and other things at will. He first discovers this when he accidentally sticks a kendo club poster to his hand and later climbs up the building he slammed into after dodging an oncoming truck. Unfortunately, it doesn't work if his clothing is too thick to not let the hairs through. He finds this out the hard way when he tries to run up a wall with his sneakers on. He's dismayed that he has to practice his new power by climbing on dirty old buildings with just his socks on, squirming when he feels the dirt and moisture seeping in. His setules can also retract unconsciously if he ever spaces out, forcing Izuku to practice until it comes as naturally to him as breathing so he doesn't fall off a building at an inopportune time.
* WallRun: He demonstrates his WallCrawling powers to his mom this way. He later uses this (after shaving the bottoms off his sneakers) while navigating the obstacle course Peter set up for him the night before the exam. He decides to not take any risks and takes off his shoes right before the practical portion of the U.A. Entrance Exam.
* WalkingTechbane: Any electronics Izuku passes through while using his phasing powers will short circuit and potentially explode. Luckily, stuff he has on his person when he turns intangible are unaffected, allowing him to carry his cell phone and web-shooters without an issue. During the U.A. Entrance Exam, his powers crash a computer hooked up to a sensor destroyed when Izuku passes through it.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Izuku happens to turn down just the right alleyway to see the Prowler railing at her client over the phone when she was hired to steal something. Then he gets bitten by the same spider she was looking for and gains spider-powers. On his first day back in school, his spider-powers develop and he ends up running into Peter Parker, who Izuku thought was [[ComicBooksAreReal completely fictional.]]
* WellDoneSonGuy: Downplayed. While they aren't related, Izuku is determined to make Peter, his mentor and the first person to ever put stock in his dream, proud of him. At the same time, Peter is already impressed with Izuku's work ethic and heroic impulses and tells him that he doesn't need to prove himself to anyone but himself.
* WithFriendsLikeThese:
** Izuku continues to admire Bakugou despite years of torment and is the only one in Bakugou's social circle to actually care about him as a person. He's deeply hurt when Bakugou declares that Izuku isn't his friend and promises Mitsuki that he'll continue to stand by him.
** Jirou refers to Bakugou as a dick when he shoves past the two of them and points out that "Deku" doesn't sound like a friendly nickname. Izuku continues to call Bakugou his friend and doesn't hold any ill will towards him.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatHotness: Izuku's physique was transformed from a scrawny nerd's to that of a muscled acrobat after being bitten by the spider.
* {{Workaholic}}: Once he starts training with Peter, Izuku works his hardest every day while studying well into the night. Inko finds him snoring over an open chemistry textbook at 2:00 a.m. and has to remind him to head back to bed. He complies, only to collapse right on top of it and instantly go back to sleep. By the end of his ten months of training, he begs Peter to let him practice more until Peter points out that it would be detrimental for Izuku to exhaust himself the night before the exam. He then goes onto say that it's weird hearing this kind of work ethic from a teenager.
* WrongContextMagic: He's unique in his universe as the only known person with superpowers that don't involve a Quirk, but he continues to pass them off as one anyways to avoid unwanted attention. [[spoiler:When U.A. finds out, they call him in before classes to interrogate him on the origins of his abilities, but continue to allow him to masquerade his power as a Quirk called "Ghost Spider".]]
* YouAreNotAlone: DoubleSubverted. He tells [[spoiler:Bakugou that he ''is'' alone, as everyone around him ''hated'' him for his behavior and only tagged along out of fear. After tearing down Bakugou's need for gratification and his horrible ego, Izuku ends his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech by admitting that he always admired him and ''is'' his friend.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Izuku has deep green hair, but this is hardly unusual in his universe.
* YouthfulFreckles: He has a cluster of four freckles on each cheek just under both of his eyes.
All.

The original Spider-Man (or at least one version of him), Peter Parker has been a superhero since he was 15 years old after his negligence led to the death of his dear Uncle Ben. Now 47, his storied tale takes a shocking turn when a fight with Mysterio drops him into an unfamiliar universe where superheroing is a full-time job and superpowers are commonplace. Peter decides to become Izuku's mentor and show him how to be Spider-Man after watching the kid dodge an oncoming truck the way Peter had when he was his age.

\nThe original Spider-Man (or at least one version of him), Peter Parker has been a superhero since he was 15 years old after his negligence led to the death of his dear Uncle Ben. Now 47, his storied tale takes a shocking turn when a fight with Mysterio drops him into an unfamiliar universe where superheroing is a full-time job and superpowers are commonplace. Peter decides to become [[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mha_inko_midoriya.png]]

Izuku's mentor and show mom. Inko has spent the most time raising him how to be Spider-Man after watching while her husband works overseas in the kid dodge an oncoming truck the way Peter had when he was his age.United States to send money home.



* ActionDad: Peter is the father of one Mayday Parker. While they're estranged from one another due to his superhero work, he loves her dearly and can still kick ass despite being out of his prime. His paternal instincts also tend to kick in around Izuku, making Peter chastise himself for using Izuku as a ReplacementGoldfish.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Compared to his ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'' counterpart, who is somewhat bitter and a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, this Peter is more open and friendly despite being dealt a bad hand. He's also significantly more mature and understanding of Izuku's circumstances and doesn't mind giving him time to think. While he'd like to get home as soon as he can, he's patient enough to hang around and teach Izuku rather than continuing his search for another portal (it helps that he doesn't have to worry about disintegrating in Izuku's reality).
* AdultFear: After learning that Mysterio knows his SecretIdentity, Peter begins panicking over whether or not Mysterio will leak that information so that all of his enemies can hound MJ and Mayday. He only manages to calm down when he remembers that he's on good terms with practically every superhero in New York City and hopes that they'll protect his daughter and ex-wife. He's also worried about letting Izuku down and setting him down a path that the aspiring Hero will regret.
* AffectionateGestureToTheHead: Peter frequently ruffles Izuku's hair affectionately. This is what gets Peter to wonder if he's using Izuku as a ReplacementGoldfish for Mayday.
* AgeLift: He's 47 when his ''Into the Spider-Verse'' counterpart is around 38. His current modern comics version tends to be in his 30s.
* AllWebbedUp: The original web-slinger himself. He's never seen in battle without his trusty web-shooters and uses his know-how to teach Izuku how to make his own.
* AmicableExes: Peter and Mary Jane may have divorced, but it's clear that they still care deeply about one another. Peter actively partakes in Mayday's life and pictures of her are strewn about his apartment.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: Uh, duh. Does "Spider-Man" ring any bells?
* BadassTeacher: Peter is a former science teacher and instructor at Avengers Academy. He uses his past experience to help him plan Izuku's training and understand how Izuku's powers differ from Peter's own. Of course, being able to wipe the floor with crooks who can take on the average Pro Hero doesn't hurt either.
* BadDreams: Peter has a recurring bad dream where he relives the day he let the robber that killed his Uncle Ben past and is powerless to do anything to stop him. Worse still, when the robber speaks, he has a VoiceOfTheLegion comprised of all of Peter's worst rogues.
* BigBrotherMentor: The author has stated that this is his intent for Peter's and Izuku's relationship: with Peter being the experienced CoolBigBro to Izuku's floundering but eager-to-learn student. While Peter sometimes cracks jokes at Izuku's expense and can be a bit exasperating to be around, Izuku trusts him deeply and knows that he's trying his best to teach him how to be Spider-Man. He grows by leaps and bounds under Peter's tutelage, getting the hang of his new abilities and learning that being Spider-Man involves a lot more than just powers.
* BornUnlucky: Peter is cursed with "Parker luck" through his superhero work. His marriage dissolved, he's in PerpetualPoverty and was fired when his ChronicHeroSyndrome won't let him stay at work for long.
* BrainyBrunette: Brown-haired and a certified genius in physical and chemical engineering. He's also a skilled hacker, managing to give himself cellular service by tampering with a nearby radio tower with nothing but a pair of rusty tweezers and a few safety pins.
* BullyHunter: While picking up Izuku to start his first day of training, Peter takes the opportunity to pull out Bakugou's leg from under him to make him fall flat on the floor. He also tells Izuku to stand up for himself and not to take Bakugou's behavior lying down.
* BurgerFool: He manages to find work as a pizza delivery man not long after Izuku has his first day at U.A. Peter has to fight to urge to cry on the sidewalk at hitting rock bottom like this.
-->'''Peter:''' I have a degree in chemical engineering and I'm delivering pizzas.
* CelebrityParadox: The Spider-Man comics, the Sam Raimi trilogy, and the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse are all present in the story's world. Izuku also mentions Creator/StanLee and Creator/SteveDitko while recovering in the hospital. Then Izuku gets spider-powers of his own from a spider bite and meets the real Spider-Man. Given how this shatters his view of what is and isn't reality, his disbelief is understandable.
* ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject: Peter's response to Izuku's offer to lead him into the bathhouse because of how squicked he is by the idea of a naked, awkward teenager leading him into a public bath filled with other naked men.
-->'''Izuku:''' I mean, I can show you… so that way you aren't…\\
'''Peter:''' ...Yeah, let's just stop this discussion right here and put going to the bathhouse on the back burner for now.
* CharacterNarrator: He gets narration privileges while quickly going over his life's story to Izuku.
* ChickMagnet: He mentions he's had numerous flings in the past before his marriage to Mary Jane and teasingly tells Izuku to prepare to be popular with the ladies. He also says he'll have to start giving Izuku dating advice after learning of Izuku's two new female friends.
* ChildrenRaiseYou: He only learned that MJ was pregnant until after their divorce, which forced Peter to keep himself afloat to pay for child support. It's implied that Peter is more mature than his movie counterpart because he wants to be a good role model to his daughter Mayday and now Izuku.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: His guilt over his Uncle Ben's death drives him to intervene whenever possible even when there are other superheroes in New York who could pick up the slack. This frequently gets used against him, such as when he's forced to use a ton of web-fluid and injures himself while stopping a careening truck from plowing through civilians during his fight with the Prowler. Even when he's trying to keep a low profile, he still can't help but run out and help people whenever he can.
* CivvieSpandex: He sometimes wears the upper half of his spandex costume but sweatpants on the lower half.
* CombatPragmatist: Peter doesn't rely on flashy super moves and just focuses on what works. He's more than happy to ambush his foes, webbing them to a wall before they can put up a fight and uses the terrain to his advantage. Rather than take Rocket Racers' {{Rocket Punch}}es head on, Peter engages in some DeadlyDodging and lets Newton's Third Law do the rest.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: He always feels that it's his responsibility to intervene because he has the powers to do so. Deconstructed when it ends up running his personal life into the ground, as he's constantly absent so he can go web-slinging to save the day.
* CompositeCharacter: Peter is a combination of many different versions of Spider-Man. His troubled family life and age are derived from ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse''. His membership on the Avengers is taken from his comics counterpart. His advanced webshooters and the HUD in his ExpressiveMask are both taken from ''VideoGame/SpiderManPS4''. Finally, his status as a father of Mayday Parker is taken from his [[ComicBook/SpiderGirl MC2 incarnation]].
* CoolMask: Peter's mask has a built-in HUD that monitors his web-fluid levels and is able to interface with his phone and GPS to alert him to ongoing crimes. It also lets him perform smartphone tasks with voice commands, such as paying his bills in advance.
* CosmicPlaything: Peter's life ''sucks.'' He's divorced from MJ over her worrying about his constant superheroics, his dear Aunt May died of old age, he's estranged from his daughter because he doesn't want her in the superhero life, he got fired from his dream job at Horizon Labs, he's constantly behind on rent, barely has enough money for child support, and is risking his life on a daily basis as Spider-Man. This is, of course, lampshaded as his usual Parker luck.
* CreepyGood: His motif and powers used to creep New Yorkers out, but he eventually came to be recognized as one of the city's great superheroes. [[TheDreaded Common crooks on the other hand...]]
* CultureClash: Izuku's world, which essentially runs on a peaceful and successful version of the Superhuman Registration Act, is a complete and utter shock to Peter after experiencing ComicBook/CivilWar. On a more mundane level, he's weirded out by everyday Japanese things like public baths, getting squeamish after Izuku describes the bathhouse to him and wanting to leave as soon as possible. At the same time, he takes a liking to anpan, snacking on it while making Izuku lap Musutafu as part of his training.
* DatingCatwoman: Lampshaded. After he learns that Izuku talked to a girl to buy cassette tapes for him, Peter teases Izuku about how he's a budding ChickMagnet in the making and advises him ''not'' to date anyone on the other side of the law, even the [[ComicBook/BlackCat morally ambiguous cat burglars.]] He's also turned off by Toga's BloodLust for him.
-->'''Peter:''' Here's a bit of free advice before you hit the dating scene. ''[jabs a finger at Izuku]'' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Do. Not. Date. Supervillains.]] Not even morally ambiguous cat burglars.\\
'''Izuku:''' I-I wouldn't!\\
'''Peter:''' Yeah, that's what I said too. But every member of the opposite sex that's on the [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains other side of the law seems to enjoy wearing as little as possible]] or [[HellBentForLeather too much leather]], and… ''[shakes his head]'' Ah, forget it. Just keep that in mind before you head to school.
* DeadlyDodging: He deals with the leader of the Rocket Racer Gang by standing next to a brick wall and goading him into trying to use his rocket-powered glove to punch him. When the Villain takes the bait, Peter jumps out of the way and lets Newton's Third Law do its work when the Rocker Racer's hand goes right through the wall.
* DeadpanSnarker: Marvel's master of the craft. Between dealing with criminals, Izuku's dorkiness, and the general inanity of his life, Peter has plenty to snark at.
-->'''Peter:''' ''[after dodging Mysterio's axe swing, which sliced through a computer]'' I've gotta give you props! You're the first person I've seen do what I've always wanted to whenever my PC froze!
* ADegreeInUseless: Inverted. He has a dual degree in chemical engineering and computer science but is stuck delivering pizzas to support himself as it was the only job he could apply for without documentation. He tries hard not to curl up on the sidewalk and cry over this.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Peter's is pivotal to Izuku's development and his presence in Izuku's universe drives the events of the plot.
* DontThinkFeel: Peter's advice to Izuku whenever he's suffering from the CentipedesDilemma is to let go of his fear of the minute details and just do it, since he doesn't have time to overthink things in the field. Izuku balks at this advice at first, but finds that web-shooting and web-swinging come a lot more naturally once he does.
* DoubleEntendre: While explaining why he flagged Izuku down, he says he knows Izuku is growing hairs in "unfamiliar places", referring to the setules on Izuku's hands as well as pubic hair. This was intentional and he laughs at Izuku's clear embarrassment.
* DownerBeginning: After briefly going over his superhero career, Peter's narration shifts to his slow decline, between divorcing MJ, his estranged relationship with his daughter, losing Aunt May, getting fired from his job at Horizon Labs and being put on eviction notice by his landlord.
* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: While fighting the Prowler, Peter fires a telegraphed web that easily misses, only for him to reveal that he was aiming at a bag of wet concrete and tugs on it to slam her in the back.
* ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask: He drops in on the Rocker Racers while holding a hot mug of coffee without spilling a drop. Then it's subverted when he sets the mug aside before kicking their collective asses. When he webs it back to his hand while escaping the police, most of the coffee splashes out and he's dismayed to discover that bits of rubble fell in and are floating on the surface. Played straight once he starts teaching Izuku how to fight, as he easily intercepts and counters all of Izuku's attempts to hit him with a bored yawn.
* ExpressiveMask: Invoked. Peter designed his mask to be able to imitate his facial expressions by widening and narrowing the lens to make him more personable and less scary to the average civilian.
* {{Foil}}: Peter and Izuku were scrawny nerds who were given the chance to become {{Action Hero}}es and are both motivated by their ChronicHeroSyndrome. Peter is a veteran who has been in the business for decades and has been ground down by everything he's lost in his crusade to help people. He's motivated by his failure to stop the crook who killed Uncle Ben, but that mantra has become far more bitter in recent years and he sometimes wishes he could just stop. Despite this, he's confident and great at what he does, hoping to keep Izuku from stumbling on his own path towards becoming a Hero. Izuku just got his powers and has no idea what he's doing. He has always wanted to be a Hero, having been inspired by All Might's example rather than personal tragedy. He's jittery and unsure of himself, wondering if he'd just be wasting Peter's time by becoming his student. Peter is also a [[YouFightLikeACow constant quipper]] and jokester, while Izuku CannotTellAJoke.
* FormerlyFit: Peter has more of a gut now that he's in his late forties. He's dismayed at this, thinking that he'd have a perfect six-pack forever given all the exercise he does. He even lampshades it, calling it a "dad bod".
* ForWantOfANail: He refused to reveal his secret identity for the sake of the SHRA even when Tony Stark came to him personally to try and convince him. This contributes to Peter's refusal to accept anything other than minimum wage as an Avenger and averted ComicBook/OneMoreDay.
* GeniusBruiser: He has a dual major degree in chemical engineering and computer science and designed his revolutionary web fluid on a working-class budget. He also helps Izuku develop his own web fluid formula after discovering that Izuku's universe didn't have the same chemicals that Peter's did. He learns to speak Japanese with near complete fluency in just a few months, letting him quip all he wants without the LanguageBarrier in the way.
* GiveHimANormalLife: Downplayed. He refuses to let Mayday into his apartment because he doesn't want her to worry about him or potentially get caught up in superhero work. But he still visits her semi-regularly and pictures of her are strewn about his apartment.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Downplayed. Peter is a CombatPragmatist but he's certainly no ComicBook/{{Punisher}} or ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}. While he doesn't use more force than necessary, he won't lose any sleep if a Villain mangles their own hand through the reckless use of their abilities or equipment.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: A downplayed example. Peter says he would have been hospitalized for life with all the injuries he got as Spider-Man if his powers didn't include a measure of SuperToughness and a minor HealingFactor.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: Downplayed. Peter often cusses when he's stressed or when he's speaking casually, but he tries not to. Clint mocks him for it.
-->'''Peter:''' ''[after learning that Mjölnir is in New Mexico]'' Shut the front door.\\
'''Clint:''' You kiss your mother with that mouth?
* HappilyMarried: Subverted, as he got divorced with MJ after she couldn't take the stress of him risking his life every day as a superhero. They still love each other deeply, but the stress his work caused keeps them apart.
* HealingFactor: Peter broke his nose during his fight with the Prowler. Just a few hours later, he's well-enough (but still covered in cuts and scrapes while walking with a limp) to speak normally again.
* HeroicFatigue: He was fired from Horizon Labs after he began making tons of mistakes at work because of how burnt out he was from constant superheroing.
* HeroismWontPayTheBills: Peter earned a mere $1,000 every two weeks as an Avenger, but this is partially because of his unwillingness to get most of his income from the man who began ComicBook/CivilWar.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Played straight then subverted. JJJ. ran his usual smear campaign against Spidey in Peter's world, but the citizens of New York eventually wised up and saw him as the hero he truly was. After this, people cheer at his arrival and his name is [[TheDreaded spoken with dread]] among New York's common crooks.
* HistoryRepeats: Peter was inspired to try and become Izuku's mentor after watching Izuku leap out of traffic the way he did as a teenager.
* HomelessHero: He doesn't have a place to stay after being tossed into Izuku's universe, initially living out of an abandoned construction site. After Prowler attacks him, he relocates to an abandoned amusement park he found in the woods around Musutafu.
* HonestyIsTheBestPolicy: He advises Izuku to tell the truth when [[spoiler:U.A. discovers that :he doesn't have a Quirk.]] All he has to do is say enough to satisfy them, while keeping out all of the outlandish parts like the alternate universes to avoid sounding like a nutcase.
* HonorBeforeReason: His Parker pride won't let him take more than minimum wage for his time as an Avenger even as he's struggling to pay his bills.
* HurtingHero: Peter's superhero career has taken a toll on him. MJ couldn't handle the stress of worrying about Peter every day, leading to their divorce. He can't hold down a job because he's constantly missing hours and making mistakes from HeroicFatigue and loss of Aunt May. Because of this, he's almost always behind on rent and the only thing he has to wear to a five-star restaurant is a Captain America t-shirt and jeans. He is also distant from his daughter Mayday out of fear of making her worry herself sick over him. He ends up crying in his sleep when he dreams of his daughter crying with only her mother for comfort.
* InASingleBound: Peter is able to perform the same long-jumping feats as Izuku, jumping out of the way of a truck the same way when he was a teenager.
* InstantExpert: Peter didn't need long to master his powers, learn how to web-sling and web-swing, or build his own equipment from scraps. This makes it difficult for Izuku, who struggles to get the hang of his new abilities that operate somewhat differently from his mentor's. Unlike All Might, Peter acknowledges this and has the teaching experience to make up for it, but he's still winging it for the most part due to the differing mechanics of Izuku's powers and his limited resources.
-->'''Peter:''' ''[after Izuku fails to web up soda cans]'' I mean… ''[tapping his head]'' You aim with this. You need to thwip it out and be confident you're going to hit what you are aiming for. ''[shrugs]'' I mean, that's how it worked for me and I'm doing alright.\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[moaning]'' That doesn't teach me anything!
* IntergenerationalFriendship: He's 47 years old when he starts mentoring the teenage Izuku and becomes his closest confidant.
* KeepTheReward: He insists Izuku doesn't owe him anything and that he's helping Izuku because he wants to despite asking for lodging when they first met. Despite this, Izuku continues to help pay for Peter's expenses and buys him gifts out of gratitude for everything he's done.
* KnightInSourArmor: Peter is still in the superhero business to help people even if it ran his life into the ground. The mantra he lives by has started tasting like ash on his tongue, but that isn't going to stop him from being a hero and fighting the good fight for the little guy.
* KryptoniteFactor: A rarely-mentioned one, but Mysterio employs an ethyl chloride gas grenade to weaken Peter and slow him down. Peter throws a stool through a skylight to let the gas seep out to take back the upper hand.
* TheMasqueradeWillKillYourDatingLife: MJ divorced Peter because of the stress of having to worry for him every night and not spending enough time together because of his superhero work.
* MentorArchetype: Peter offers to show Izuku how to be Spider-Man so he wouldn't repeat the mistakes Peter made in his youth.
* MundaneUtility: He uses his webbing to make a hammock and pillows while looking for a place to stay.
* MyGreatestFailure: Peter is still reeling from his Uncle Ben's death decades after it happened. He uses Ben's memory to remind Izuku that he doesn't need to go around pleasing others or "prove himself" to them, as he'll only hurt himself in the long-run.
-->'''Peter:''' I was a bit like you when I started. ''[walks over to Izuku]'' I wanted to prove myself to a world that pushed me to the side because I was different. You want to do it by being a superhero, where I… ''[sighs]'' Well, you know how that ended.
* NeverGetsFat: Subverted. He's well out of his teenage years and a consistent diet of junk food has given him a gut despite his active lifestyle.
* NoJustNoReaction: When Izuku asks how Peter's first experience at the public bath was, Peter cuts him short and tells him that he wants to get the hell out.
-->'''Izuku:''' How was...\\
'''Peter:''' Don't… just don't… Let's just change and get the hell out of here.
* OlderAndWiser: Peter has been in the game for 32 years by the events of the story and wants to pass some of his know-how to Izuku. He even admits that, like in the Lee-Ditko era of comics, he was a dick when he first started out as Spider-Man and doesn't fault Izuku for going on a little ego trip at the entrance exam as long as he never does it again.
* OldSuperhero: Downplayed. Peter is 47 and still fighting crime, but it's had negative effects on his social life and financial solvency and he's [[FormerlyFit out of his prime]]. He mentions that he's one of the last of the "old guard" superheroes left on the Avengers, whose roster is being increasingly filled with new heroes like Kamala Khan, Robbie Reyes, and Torunn as age catches up to them.
* PapaWolf: He quickly becomes protective of Izuku and gets his HeroicSecondWind when Prowler threatens to impale Izuku on her claws. In one non-canon sidestory written for Valentine's Day, he warns Izuku not to hit on Mayday if they ever meet after [[ComicBook/SpiderGirl MC2 Mayday]] gives him a kiss to remember her by. Peter doesn't have to worry much since Izuku quickly passes out from emotional overload.
* ParlorGames: Peter initially tries to communicate with Izuku through charades until Izuku reveals that he has a rudimentary understanding of English.
* PermaStubble: Peter has this as he doesn't shave regularly due to exhaustion and budget issues. Izuku later manages to convince him to shave at the local public bath, but Peter's embarrassment over it makes him miss a few spots and he gets cuts on his face.
* PerpetualPoverty: Peter, as usual, gets fired from his job, has a mediocre salary as a member of the Avengers, and gets stranded in another universe where the only things he has are his clothes and web-shooters.
* PopCulturedBadass: He's a fan of Franchise/StarWars and is enough of a movie buff to guess what Mysterio's password would be based on its visual effects.
* PowerMisidentification: The Japanese police and the Hero community believe that Peter's Quirk is the ability to produce webbing. In reality, his powers are everything ''but'' his webbing.
* PrimaryColorChampion: Peter's costume is the classic red-and-blue.
* ProjectileWebbing: His web-shooters shoot out lines of webbing that instantly form web-patterns on whatever they hit, firmly securing the target in place unless they have enough SuperStrength to break free.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Peter's fatherly tendencies shine through when he's interacting with Izuku. Peter is actually ashamed of this, as it means that he might just be using Izuku to find some solace while he's a universe away from his daughter and ex-wife.
* RudeAwakening: Peter has to leap out of his web hammock after the Prowler ambushes him while he's trying to go to sleep.
* RummageSaleReject: Izuku tosses his dad's old clothes to Peter, including some embarrassing t-shirts like a hot pink shirt with "JUICY" written on the back and sweatpants with "BIG BOY" on the sides.
* SadClown: Peter keeps up a chipper and joking persona around Izuku, but he weeps at night over his concern for his family and everything he's lost.
* ScienceHero: He knows his way around physics, chemical and physical engineering and makes sure Izuku knows what's going into web fluid and the principles behind it before they start making it.
* SeenItAll:
** Peter is amazingly calm about being TrappedInAnotherWorld that considers him fictional because of how much crap he's gone through as Spider-Man. What does worry him is how [[AdultFear his family will react to his disappearance]] and whether or not he'll let Izuku down.
--->'''Peter:''' ''[Izuku stares at him blankly]'' Kid, you're freaking me out. Would it kill you to eat?\\
'''Izuku:''' I-I am very sorry. It is just most strange. You seem to take the news well.\\
'''Peter:''' Kid, after all the crap I've seen in my life let me tell you, me being fictional over here is a... four out of ten on my "freak-out" meter.
** In a bunch of non-canon sidestories, Peter happily pokes fun at the generic doomsday speech he's hearing and guesses exactly what the doomsayer is about to say next.
* ShrugTake: When he learns that he's fictional in Izuku's world, Peter pauses for about five seconds before going back to chowing down on katsudon.
* SinkOrSwimMentor: Downplayed. Peter is willing to walk Izuku through things as necessary, guiding him to build his own web-shooters and exploring the mechanics of Izuku's abilities. At the same time, he isn't afraid to push Izuku, chucking kitchen appliances at him to test his strength and having him web-swing alone to overcome his fear of heights. He also forces Izuku to study college-level physics, chemistry, and mechanical engineering to make sure he can handle the process of making web-fluid, giving him just three weeks to learn semesters' worth of material in between their training sessions.
* SkunkStripe: Peter has a streak of gray running through his brown hair.
* SomethingPerson: He's Spider-Man. [[YouShouldKnowThisAlready In case you didn't know that.]]
* SpiderSense: Of course he has this as the original article.
* StrongAndSkilled: Peter has almost all of the same powers as Izuku, but more than 30 years of fighting experience to supplement them. Hence why he's able to fight the Prowler when Izuku, who had no experience aside from getting beaten up, could not.
* SuperheroesWearTights: Par standard.
* SuperStrength: Peter easily kicks the Prowler through a brick wall even while his ankle was injured by the flechette she shot him with earlier. He also effortlessly lifts an entire fridge with one hand and punches through the plastic helmets and visors of the Rocket Racer Gang.
* SuperToughness: While Peter isn't bulletproof, he's taken insane amounts of punishment beyond that of a normal human, including taking multiple rocket-powered punches to the gut that can knock people's teeth out with only discomfort, limping away after getting shot in the heel, and getting up a few minutes later after being electrocuted by Izuku's Venom Strike. He's also confident in his ability to take anything Izuku can dish out at him in their sparring sessions a few months after learning that Izuku could lift ten tons.
* SureLetsGoWithThat: He's relieved when Izuku's Spider-Sense works on the rusty nails he left lying around Jakuri. When Izuku asks if Peter expected this, Peter says, "Rrrriiiight. Yup, sure kid.", to Izuku's discomfort.
* TooDesperateToBePicky: With nothing but a portion of Izuku's allowance to sustain him, Peter makes do with what he has, hacking into a phone tower to get cellular service and a map and subsisting off instant ramen packets and cheap corner store food. He also lives out of an abandoned amusement park in the woods. Together, they make the place more livable by fixing up some old solar panels and repairing a fridge and stove. He also tells Izuku to mix up web fluid in class because they simply don't have the cash to buy the materials and bring them back to Jakuri.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Peter is stuck in Izuku's universe after Mysterio's portal went haywire and sucked them both there. Completely broke and homeless in a world that thinks he's fictional, he finds an abandoned construction site to take shelter in and fishes some clothes out of the trash before he runs into Izuku.
* WallCrawling: The original Wall-Crawler himself. Unlike Izuku, Peter can generate an electrostatic cling without the use of setules, allowing him to stick to surfaces even while wearing thick clothing like sneakers.
* WallRun: He can run straight up walls thanks to his WallCrawling powers. Even without them, his SuperStrength and natural momentum can carry him up walls anyways.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatPerks: Like in the original comics, Peter tried to monetize his powers at first until his actions got his Uncle Ben killed. He's taken aback when it's clear that Izuku wants to be a Hero solely to help others rather than for fame, fortune, or other selfish pursuits.
* WorfHadTheFlu: His poor showing against the Prowler can be partially attributed to the fact that he was ambushed, just had a large meal, and exhausted. They would have been much more evenly matched under normal circumstances.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: He frequently has to remind Izuku to not blame himself for things that are out of his control. After the Prowler incident, he assures Izuku that his hesitation to accept Peter's offer was perfectly fine and that he would've gotten even more injured if Izuku was there when she first ambushed him.
* YouAreNotAlone: Tells Izuku this while helping him sort out his lingering feelings of resentment for being bullied and Quirkless. Izuku acknowledges this and is thankful for having people he can rely on.
-->'''Peter:''' And hey, don't think you need to take it out on some supervillain. ''[ruffles Izuku's hair]'' I'm here, and I bet your mom would love to listen. ''[grins]'' Trust me when I say we both understand that being a teenager is just the worst.\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[thinking]'' I'm not alone...
* YouFightLikeACow: As usual, Peter is the master of taunting his foes, making light of a simple bank robbery and quipping the entire time.
* YourCostumeNeedsWork: He's frequently brushed off by Pro Heroes and the media as a Spider-Man wannabe and someone dressed like Spider-Man rather than the genuine article himself. Granted, they have no way of knowing that ComicBooksAreReal and Izuku only believes him because he got his powers the same way. Peter's web-shooters are also frequently mistaken for a Quirk.
* YouRemindMeOfX: Izuku's shyness and nerdiness reminds Peter of himself when he was younger. He hopes to boost Izuku's confidence and get him to stand up for himself against Bakugou, having gone through similar circumstances as a teenager with Flash Thompson. Izuku's innate enthusiasm for helping others brings [[ComicBook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan, the current Ms. Marvel,]] to mind.
* YouWillNotEvadeMe: He webs one of the Rocket Racers and reels him in for an instant KO punch.

to:

* ActionDad: Peter is the father of one Mayday Parker. While they're estranged AdultFear:
** She had no idea how to support Izuku after finding out he was Quirkless and put on weight
from one another due the stress of watching him grow up tormented from having what amounts to his superhero work, he loves her dearly and can still kick ass despite being out a genetic disability totally outside of his prime. His paternal instincts also tend to kick in around Izuku, making Peter chastise himself for using Izuku as a ReplacementGoldfish.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Compared to
or her control.
** Her dutiful and responsible son suddenly ditches school after getting the superpowers he wanted
his ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'' counterpart, who is somewhat bitter and a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, this Peter is more open and friendly despite being dealt a bad hand. He's also significantly more mature and understanding of Izuku's circumstances whole life and doesn't mind giving him time to think. While he'd like to get come home as soon as he can, he's patient enough to hang around and teach Izuku rather than continuing his search for another portal (it helps that on time. After he doesn't have respond to worry her worried texts, she sees him run straight up to a highly dangerous Villain and known murderer on live television when the Pro Heroes fail to protect him. It's little wonder she's a bawling mess once he gets home.
** She's aware of her son's new fame as the "Prowler Kid" and is worried that people might try to exploit him for it.
** She knows her son is lying to her
about disintegrating in Izuku's reality).
* AdultFear: After learning that Mysterio knows
his SecretIdentity, Peter begins panicking over whether or not Mysterio will leak that information so that all of his enemies can hound MJ nightly excursions and Mayday. He only manages to calm down when he remembers that wonders what he's on good terms with practically every superhero in New York City and hopes that they'll protect doing when she isn't around, especially when his daughter and ex-wife. He's also worried fame could be dragging him into less savory hobbies.
** After her son gets into the school of his dreams, she balks when [[spoiler:he's interrogated by the principal
about letting Izuku down and setting him down a path that the aspiring Hero will regret.
* AffectionateGestureToTheHead: Peter frequently ruffles Izuku's hair affectionately. This is what gets Peter to wonder
true nature of his abilities as if he's using Izuku some kind of criminal.]] She goes so far as a ReplacementGoldfish for Mayday.
* AgeLift: He's 47 when his ''Into the Spider-Verse'' counterpart is around 38. His current modern comics version tends
to be in his 30s.
* AllWebbedUp: The original web-slinger himself. He's never seen in battle without his trusty web-shooters and uses his know-how to teach Izuku how to make his own.
* AmicableExes: Peter and Mary Jane may have divorced, but it's clear that they still care deeply about one another. Peter actively partakes in Mayday's life and pictures of her are strewn about his apartment.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: Uh, duh. Does "Spider-Man" ring any bells?
* BadassTeacher: Peter is a former science teacher and instructor at Avengers Academy. He uses his past experience to help him plan Izuku's training and understand how Izuku's powers differ from Peter's own. Of course, being able to wipe the floor with crooks who can take on the average Pro Hero doesn't hurt either.
* BadDreams: Peter has a recurring bad dream where he relives the day he let the robber that killed his Uncle Ben past and is powerless to do anything to stop him. Worse still, when the robber speaks, he has a VoiceOfTheLegion comprised of all of Peter's worst rogues.
* BigBrotherMentor: The author has stated that this is his intent for Peter's and Izuku's relationship: with Peter being the experienced CoolBigBro to Izuku's floundering but eager-to-learn student. While Peter sometimes cracks jokes at Izuku's expense and can be a bit exasperating to be around, Izuku trusts him deeply and knows that he's trying his best to teach him how to be Spider-Man. He grows by leaps and bounds under Peter's tutelage, getting the hang of his new abilities and learning that being Spider-Man involves a lot more than just powers.
* BornUnlucky: Peter is cursed with "Parker luck" through his superhero work. His marriage dissolved, he's in PerpetualPoverty and was fired when his ChronicHeroSyndrome won't let him stay at work for long.
* BrainyBrunette: Brown-haired and a certified genius in physical and chemical engineering. He's also a skilled hacker, managing to give himself cellular service by tampering with a nearby radio tower with nothing but a pair of rusty tweezers and a few safety pins.
* BullyHunter: While picking up Izuku to start his first day of training, Peter takes the opportunity
threaten to pull him out Bakugou's leg from under him to make him fall flat on the floor. He also and tells Izuku to stand up for himself and not to take Bakugou's behavior lying down.
* BurgerFool: He manages to find work as a pizza delivery man not long after Izuku has his first day at
off U.A. Peter has to fight to urge to cry on the sidewalk at hitting rock bottom like this.
-->'''Peter:''' I have a degree in chemical engineering and I'm delivering pizzas.
* CelebrityParadox: The Spider-Man comics, the Sam Raimi trilogy, and the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse are all present in the story's world. Izuku also mentions Creator/StanLee and Creator/SteveDitko while recovering in the hospital. Then Izuku gets spider-powers of his own from a spider bite and meets the real Spider-Man. Given how
for doing this shatters his view of what is and isn't reality, his disbelief is understandable.
* ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject: Peter's response
to him.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: She constantly frets over
Izuku's offer to lead him into the bathhouse because of how squicked he is by the idea of a naked, awkward teenager leading him into a public bath filled with other naked men.
-->'''Izuku:''' I mean, I can show you… so that way you aren't…\\
'''Peter:''' ...Yeah, let's just stop this discussion right here
well-being and put going to the bathhouse on the back burner for now.
* CharacterNarrator: He gets narration privileges while
was apparently a FormerTeenRebel. Izuku quickly going over decides that the less he knows about his life's story to Izuku.
* ChickMagnet: He mentions he's had numerous flings in
parents' younger years the past before better.
* DotingParent:
** She clearly care for Izuku's well-being. They cry OcularGushers after he wakes up from
his marriage to Mary Jane short coma and teasingly tells Izuku Hisashi rushes to prepare to be popular with the ladies. He also says he'll have to start giving Izuku dating advice Japan after learning of Izuku's two new female friends.
* ChildrenRaiseYou: He only learned
his son's condition. Izuku loves his parents and calls Inko the best mom in the world.
** Inko worries for Izuku when she got a call from the school saying
that MJ was pregnant until after their divorce, which forced Peter he ditched class. Rather than reprimand him for it, her first texts asked "where are you?", "please call me?", and "are you heading home?"
** Once she learns about his "Quirk", she fully supports his ambitions to become a Hero. Rather than reprimand him for staying up all night to study, she gently reminds him to go back to bed and drapes some covers over him
to keep himself afloat to pay for child support. It's implied that Peter is more mature than his movie counterpart because he wants to be a good role model to his daughter Mayday and now Izuku.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: His guilt over his Uncle Ben's death drives
him to intervene whenever possible even when there are other superheroes in New York who could pick up the slack. This frequently gets used against him, such as when he's forced to use a ton of web-fluid and injures himself while stopping a careening truck from plowing through civilians during getting a cold.
** She avoids MyBelovedSmother by trusting Izuku to make
his fight with the Prowler. Even when he's trying to keep a low profile, he still own decisions, but can't help but run out and help people whenever he can.
* CivvieSpandex: He sometimes wears the upper half of his spandex costume but sweatpants on the lower half.
* CombatPragmatist: Peter doesn't rely on flashy super moves and just focuses on what works. He's more than happy to ambush his foes, webbing them to a wall before they can put up a fight and uses the terrain to his advantage. Rather than take Rocket Racers' {{Rocket Punch}}es head on, Peter engages in some DeadlyDodging and lets Newton's Third Law do the rest.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: He always feels that it's his responsibility to intervene because he has the powers to do so. Deconstructed when it ends up running his personal life into the ground, as
worry if he's constantly absent so going through a teen rebel phase when he can go web-slinging starts lying to save the day.
* CompositeCharacter: Peter is a combination of many different versions of Spider-Man. His troubled family life and age are derived from ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse''. His membership on the Avengers is taken from his comics counterpart. His advanced webshooters and the HUD in his ExpressiveMask are both taken from ''VideoGame/SpiderManPS4''. Finally, his status as a father of Mayday Parker is taken from his [[ComicBook/SpiderGirl MC2 incarnation]].
* CoolMask: Peter's mask has a built-in HUD that monitors his web-fluid levels and is able to interface with his phone and GPS to alert him to ongoing crimes. It also lets him perform smartphone tasks with voice commands, such as paying his bills in advance.
* CosmicPlaything: Peter's life ''sucks.'' He's divorced from MJ over
her worrying about his constant superheroics, his dear Aunt May died of old age, where he's estranged from his daughter because he doesn't want her in the superhero life, he got fired from his dream job at Horizon Labs, going after school. [[spoiler:When she learns he's constantly behind on rent, barely has enough money been keeping her LockedOutOfTheLoop, she reprimands Nezu for child support, interrogating him and is risking his life on a daily basis as Spider-Man. This is, of course, lampshaded as his usual Parker luck.
* CreepyGood: His motif and powers used
simply asks Izuku not to creep New Yorkers out, but he eventually came lie to be recognized as one of the city's great superheroes. [[TheDreaded Common crooks on the other hand...her anymore.]]
* CultureClash: Izuku's world, which essentially runs on a peaceful and successful version of the Superhuman Registration Act, {{Foil}}: To Mitsuki. Inko is a complete timid and utter shock to Peter after experiencing ComicBook/CivilWar. On a more mundane level, he's weirded out by everyday Japanese things like public baths, getting squeamish after Izuku describes the bathhouse to him and wanting to leave as soon as possible. At the same time, he takes a liking to anpan, snacking on it while making Izuku lap Musutafu as part of his training.
* DatingCatwoman: Lampshaded. After he learns that Izuku talked to a girl to buy cassette tapes for him, Peter teases Izuku about how he's a budding ChickMagnet in the making and advises him ''not'' to date anyone on the other side of the law, even the [[ComicBook/BlackCat morally ambiguous cat burglars.]] He's also turned off by Toga's BloodLust for him.
-->'''Peter:''' Here's a bit of free advice before you hit the dating scene. ''[jabs a finger at Izuku]'' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Do. Not. Date. Supervillains.]] Not even morally ambiguous cat burglars.\\
'''Izuku:''' I-I wouldn't!\\
'''Peter:''' Yeah, that's what I said too. But every member of the opposite sex that's on the [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains other side of the law seems to enjoy wearing as little as possible]] or [[HellBentForLeather too much leather]], and… ''[shakes his head]'' Ah, forget it. Just keep that in mind before you head to school.
* DeadlyDodging: He deals with the leader of the Rocket Racer Gang by standing next to a brick wall and goading him into trying to use his rocket-powered glove to punch him. When the Villain takes the bait, Peter jumps out of the way and lets Newton's Third Law do its work when the Rocker Racer's hand goes right through the wall.
* DeadpanSnarker: Marvel's master of the craft. Between dealing with criminals, Izuku's dorkiness, and the general inanity of his life, Peter has plenty to snark at.
-->'''Peter:''' ''[after dodging Mysterio's axe swing, which sliced through a computer]'' I've gotta give you props! You're the first person I've seen do what I've always wanted to whenever my PC froze!
* ADegreeInUseless: Inverted. He has a dual degree in chemical engineering and computer science but
highly emotional woman who is stuck delivering pizzas to support himself as it was the only job he could apply for without documentation. He tries hard not to curl up on the sidewalk and cry over this.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Peter's is pivotal to Izuku's development and his presence
ever-present in Izuku's universe drives the events of the plot.
* DontThinkFeel: Peter's advice to Izuku whenever he's suffering from the CentipedesDilemma is to let go of his fear of the minute details and just do it, since he doesn't have time to overthink things in the field. Izuku balks at this advice at first, but finds that web-shooting and web-swinging come a lot more naturally once he does.
* DoubleEntendre: While explaining why he flagged Izuku down, he says he knows Izuku is growing hairs in "unfamiliar places", referring to the setules on Izuku's hands as well as pubic hair. This was intentional and he laughs at Izuku's clear embarrassment.
* DownerBeginning: After briefly going over his superhero career, Peter's narration shifts to his slow decline, between divorcing MJ, his estranged relationship with his daughter, losing Aunt May, getting fired from his job at Horizon Labs and being put on eviction notice by his landlord.
* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: While fighting the Prowler, Peter fires a telegraphed web that easily misses, only for him to reveal that he was aiming at a bag of wet concrete and tugs on it to slam
life. He holds her in the back.
* ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask: He drops in on
highest esteem and the Rocker Racers while holding a hot mug of coffee without spilling a drop. Then it's subverted when he sets the mug aside before kicking their collective asses. When he webs it back to his hand while escaping the police, most of the coffee splashes out two are extremely close. The fiery Mitsuki is constantly away at work and he's dismayed never really got to discover that bits of rubble fell in and are floating on the surface. Played straight once he starts teaching Izuku how to fight, as he easily intercepts and counters all of Izuku's attempts to hit him with a bored yawn.
* ExpressiveMask: Invoked. Peter designed his mask to be able to imitate his facial expressions by widening and narrowing the lens to make him more personable and less scary to the average civilian.
* {{Foil}}: Peter and Izuku were scrawny nerds who were given the chance to become {{Action Hero}}es and are both motivated by their ChronicHeroSyndrome. Peter is a veteran who has been in the business for decades and has been ground down by everything he's lost in his crusade to help people.
know her son. He's motivated by his failure to stop the crook who killed Uncle Ben, but that mantra has become far more bitter in recent years constantly disrespecting her and he sometimes wishes he could just stop. Despite this, he's confident and great at what he does, hoping she only manages to keep Izuku from stumbling on his own path towards becoming a Hero. Izuku just got his powers him in line through shouting and has no idea what he's doing. He has always wanted to be a Hero, having been inspired by All Might's example rather than personal tragedy. He's jittery and unsure of himself, wondering if he'd just be wasting Peter's time by becoming his student. Peter is also a [[YouFightLikeACow constant quipper]] and jokester, while Izuku CannotTellAJoke.
violence.
* FormerlyFit: Peter has more of a gut now that he's in his late forties. He's dismayed at this, thinking that he'd have a perfect six-pack forever given all the exercise he does. He even lampshades it, calling it a "dad bod".
* ForWantOfANail: He refused
She used to reveal his secret identity for the sake of the SHRA even when Tony Stark came to him personally to try and convince him. This contributes to Peter's refusal to accept anything other than minimum wage as an Avenger and averted ComicBook/OneMoreDay.
* GeniusBruiser: He has a dual major degree in chemical engineering and computer science and designed his revolutionary web fluid on a working-class budget. He also helps Izuku develop his own web fluid formula after discovering that Izuku's universe didn't have the same chemicals that Peter's did. He learns to speak Japanese with near complete fluency in just a few months, letting him quip all he wants without the LanguageBarrier in the way.
* GiveHimANormalLife: Downplayed. He refuses to let Mayday into his apartment because he doesn't want her to worry about him or potentially get caught up in superhero work. But he still visits her semi-regularly and pictures of her are strewn about his apartment.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Downplayed. Peter is a CombatPragmatist but he's certainly no ComicBook/{{Punisher}} or ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}. While he doesn't use more force than necessary, he won't lose any sleep if a Villain mangles their own hand through the reckless use of their abilities or equipment.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: A downplayed example. Peter says he would have been hospitalized for life with all the injuries he got as Spider-Man if his powers didn't include a measure of SuperToughness and a minor HealingFactor.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: Downplayed. Peter often cusses when he's stressed or when he's speaking casually, but he tries not to. Clint mocks him for it.
-->'''Peter:''' ''[after learning that Mjölnir is in New Mexico]'' Shut the front door.\\
'''Clint:''' You kiss your mother with that mouth?
* HappilyMarried: Subverted, as he got divorced with MJ after she couldn't take the stress of him risking his life every day as a superhero. They still love each other deeply,
be much slimmer, but the stress his work caused keeps them apart.
* HealingFactor: Peter broke his nose during his fight with the Prowler. Just a few hours later, he's well-enough (but still covered in cuts and scrapes while walking with a limp) to speak normally again.
* HeroicFatigue: He was fired from Horizon Labs after he began making tons
of mistakes at work because of how burnt out he was from constant superheroing.
* HeroismWontPayTheBills: Peter earned a mere $1,000 every two weeks as an Avenger, but this is partially because of his unwillingness to get most of his income from the man who began ComicBook/CivilWar.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Played straight then subverted. JJJ. ran his usual smear campaign against Spidey in Peter's world, but the citizens of New York eventually wised up and saw him as the hero he truly was. After this, people cheer at his arrival and his name is [[TheDreaded spoken with dread]] among New York's common crooks.
* HistoryRepeats: Peter was inspired to try and become Izuku's mentor after watching
raising Izuku leap out of traffic the way he made her gain weight.
* FormerTeenRebel: She admits that she
did some wild things growing up as a teenager.
* HomelessHero: He doesn't have a place to stay after being tossed into Izuku's universe, initially living out of an abandoned construction site. After Prowler attacks him, he relocates to an abandoned amusement park he found in the woods around Musutafu.
* HonestyIsTheBestPolicy: He advises
teenager. This is why she worries Izuku to tell the truth when [[spoiler:U.A. discovers that :he doesn't have a Quirk.]] All he has to do is say enough to satisfy them, while keeping going out all of the outlandish parts like the alternate universes to avoid sounding like smoke or meet a nutcase.
* HonorBeforeReason: His Parker pride won't let him take more than minimum wage for his time as an Avenger even as he's struggling to pay his bills.
* HurtingHero: Peter's superhero career has taken a toll on him. MJ couldn't handle the stress of worrying about Peter every day, leading to their divorce. He can't hold down a job because he's constantly missing hours and making mistakes from HeroicFatigue and loss of Aunt May. Because of this, he's almost always behind on rent and the only thing he has to wear to a five-star restaurant is a Captain America t-shirt and jeans. He is also distant from his daughter Mayday out of fear of making her worry herself sick over him. He ends up crying in his sleep
girl when he dreams of his daughter crying with only lies to her mother for comfort.
* InASingleBound: Peter is able to perform
about where he goes at night. [[spoiler:When Nezu asks if her husband broke the same long-jumping feats law, she tells him no, as Izuku, jumping out of ''she'' was the way of a truck the same way when he was a teenager.
* InstantExpert: Peter didn't need long to master his powers, learn how to web-sling and web-swing, or build his own equipment from scraps. This makes it difficult for Izuku, who struggles to get the hang of his new abilities that operate somewhat differently from his mentor's. Unlike All Might, Peter acknowledges this and has the teaching experience to make up for it, but he's still winging it for the most part due to the differing mechanics of Izuku's powers and his limited resources.
-->'''Peter:''' ''[after Izuku fails to web up soda cans]'' I mean… ''[tapping his head]'' You aim with this. You need to thwip it out and be confident you're going to hit what you are aiming for. ''[shrugs]'' I mean, that's how it worked for me and I'm doing alright.\\
'''Izuku:''' ''[moaning]'' That doesn't teach me anything!
* IntergenerationalFriendship: He's 47 years old when he starts mentoring the teenage Izuku and becomes his closest confidant.
* KeepTheReward: He insists Izuku doesn't owe him anything and that he's helping Izuku because he wants to despite asking for lodging
rule-bender when they first met. Despite this, Izuku continues to help pay for Peter's expenses and buys him gifts out of gratitude for everything he's done.
* KnightInSourArmor: Peter is still in the superhero business to help people even if it ran his life into the ground. The mantra he lives by has started tasting like ash on his tongue, but that isn't going to stop him from being a hero and fighting the good fight for the little guy.
* KryptoniteFactor: A rarely-mentioned one, but Mysterio employs an ethyl chloride gas grenade to weaken Peter and slow him down. Peter throws a stool through a skylight to let the gas seep out to take back the upper hand.
* TheMasqueradeWillKillYourDatingLife: MJ divorced Peter because of the stress of having to worry for him every night and not spending enough time together because of his superhero work.
* MentorArchetype: Peter offers to show Izuku how to be Spider-Man so he wouldn't repeat the mistakes Peter made in his youth.
* MundaneUtility: He uses his webbing to make a hammock and pillows while looking for a place to stay.
* MyGreatestFailure: Peter is still reeling from his Uncle Ben's death decades after it happened. He uses Ben's memory to remind Izuku that he doesn't need to go around pleasing others or "prove himself" to them, as he'll only hurt himself in the long-run.
-->'''Peter:''' I was a bit like you when I started. ''[walks over to Izuku]'' I wanted to prove myself to a world that pushed me to the side because I was different. You want to do it by being a superhero, where I… ''[sighs]'' Well, you know how that ended.
* NeverGetsFat: Subverted. He's well out of his teenage years and a consistent diet of junk food has given him a gut despite his active lifestyle.
* NoJustNoReaction: When Izuku asks how Peter's first experience at the public bath was, Peter cuts him short and tells him that he wants to get the hell out.
-->'''Izuku:''' How was...\\
'''Peter:''' Don't… just don't… Let's just change and get the hell out of here.
* OlderAndWiser: Peter has been in the game for 32 years by the events of the story and wants to pass some of his know-how to Izuku. He even admits that, like in the Lee-Ditko era of comics, he was a dick when he first started out as Spider-Man and doesn't fault Izuku for going on a little ego trip at the entrance exam as long as he never does it again.
* OldSuperhero: Downplayed. Peter is 47 and still fighting crime, but it's had negative effects on his social life and financial solvency and he's [[FormerlyFit out of his prime]]. He mentions that he's one of the last of the "old guard" superheroes left on the Avengers, whose roster is being increasingly filled with new heroes like Kamala Khan, Robbie Reyes, and Torunn as age catches up to them.
* PapaWolf: He quickly becomes protective of Izuku and gets his HeroicSecondWind when Prowler threatens to impale Izuku on her claws. In one non-canon sidestory written for Valentine's Day, he warns Izuku not to hit on Mayday if they ever meet after [[ComicBook/SpiderGirl MC2 Mayday]] gives him a kiss to remember her by. Peter doesn't have to worry much since Izuku quickly passes out from emotional overload.
* ParlorGames: Peter initially tries to communicate with Izuku through charades until Izuku reveals that he has a rudimentary understanding of English.
* PermaStubble: Peter has this as he doesn't shave regularly due to exhaustion and budget issues. Izuku later manages to convince him to shave at the local public bath, but Peter's embarrassment over it makes him miss a few spots and he gets cuts on his face.
* PerpetualPoverty: Peter, as usual, gets fired from his job, has a mediocre salary as a member of the Avengers, and gets stranded in another universe where the only things he has are his clothes and web-shooters.
* PopCulturedBadass: He's a fan of Franchise/StarWars and is enough of a movie buff to guess what Mysterio's password would be based on its visual effects.
* PowerMisidentification: The Japanese police and the Hero community believe that Peter's Quirk is the ability to produce webbing. In reality, his powers are everything ''but'' his webbing.
* PrimaryColorChampion: Peter's costume is the classic red-and-blue.
* ProjectileWebbing: His web-shooters shoot out lines of webbing that instantly form web-patterns on whatever they hit, firmly securing the target in place unless they have enough SuperStrength to break free.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Peter's fatherly tendencies shine through when he's interacting with Izuku. Peter is actually ashamed of this, as it means that he might just be using Izuku to find some solace while he's a universe away from his daughter and ex-wife.
* RudeAwakening: Peter has to leap out of his web hammock after the Prowler ambushes him while he's trying to go to sleep.
* RummageSaleReject: Izuku tosses his dad's old clothes to Peter, including some embarrassing t-shirts like a hot pink shirt with "JUICY" written on the back and sweatpants with "BIG BOY" on the sides.
* SadClown: Peter keeps up a chipper and joking persona around Izuku, but he weeps at night over his concern for his family and everything he's lost.
* ScienceHero: He knows his way around physics, chemical and physical engineering and makes sure Izuku knows what's going into web fluid and the principles behind it before they start making it.
* SeenItAll:
** Peter is amazingly calm about being TrappedInAnotherWorld that considers him fictional because of how much crap he's gone through as Spider-Man. What does worry him is how [[AdultFear his family will react to his disappearance]] and whether or not he'll let Izuku down.
--->'''Peter:''' ''[Izuku stares at him blankly]'' Kid, you're freaking me out. Would it kill you to eat?\\
'''Izuku:''' I-I am very sorry. It is just most strange. You seem to take the news well.\\
'''Peter:''' Kid, after all the crap I've seen in my life let me tell you, me being fictional over here is a... four out of ten on my "freak-out" meter.
** In a bunch of non-canon sidestories, Peter happily pokes fun at the generic doomsday speech he's hearing and guesses exactly what the doomsayer is about to say next.
* ShrugTake: When he learns that he's fictional in Izuku's world, Peter pauses for about five seconds before going back to chowing down on katsudon.
* SinkOrSwimMentor: Downplayed. Peter is willing to walk Izuku through things as necessary, guiding him to build his own web-shooters and exploring the mechanics of Izuku's abilities. At the same time, he isn't afraid to push Izuku, chucking kitchen appliances at him to test his strength and having him web-swing alone to overcome his fear of heights. He also forces Izuku to study college-level physics, chemistry, and mechanical engineering to make sure he can handle the process of making web-fluid, giving him just three weeks to learn semesters' worth of material in between their training sessions.
* SkunkStripe: Peter has a streak of gray running through his brown hair.
* SomethingPerson: He's Spider-Man. [[YouShouldKnowThisAlready In case you didn't know that.
were younger.]]
* SpiderSense: Of course he has this as the original article.
{{Housewife}}: She's left to care for her son while her husband works overseas.
* StrongAndSkilled: LockedOutOfTheLoop: Izuku doesn't let her in on his training sessions with Peter has almost all of or the same true nature of his powers as Izuku, but more than 30 years of fighting experience to supplement them. Hence keep her from fretting over him. When she catches him snoring into an open-faced textbook, she wonders why he's able to fight the Prowler when Izuku, who had no experience aside from getting beaten up, could not.
* SuperheroesWearTights: Par standard.
* SuperStrength: Peter easily kicks the Prowler through a brick wall even while his ankle was injured by the flechette she shot him with earlier. He also effortlessly lifts an entire fridge with one hand and punches through the plastic helmets and visors of the Rocket Racer Gang.
* SuperToughness: While Peter

Izuku's former ChildhoodFriend and long-time bully. Bakugou has it all: athleticism, great grades, and an extremely powerful Quirk called "Explosion", which lets him turn his sweat into a substance similar to nitroglycerin to create explosions at will. His genius is only matched by his ego and fiery temper, refusing to let anyone else top him as he sets out to become the Number One Hero.

Izuku's former ChildhoodFriend dad. He's always away at work overseas and long-time bully. Bakugou rarely has it all: athleticism, great grades, and an extremely powerful Quirk called "Explosion", which lets him turn time to visit home. When he does come home, he always makes his sweat into a substance similar to nitroglycerin to create explosions at will. His genius is only matched by his ego and fiery temper, refusing to let anyone else top him as he sets out to become the Number One Hero.presence felt.



* TheAce: Deconstructed. Bakugou is held in awe among his peers for being the strongest, smartest, and bravest kid around. He's good at everything he puts his mind to and no one wanted to take him on in a fight because they saw him as invincible, sucking up to him to avoid drawing his ire and letting Izuku be his punching bag. Once the newly spider-powered Izuku manages to [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength accidentally]] shatter [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable Bakugou's illusion of invincibility]], people stop respecting him and even begin mocking him online behind his back.
* AffectionateNickname: Izuku still calls him "Kacchan", his cutesy simplified nickname from when they were kids.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Subverted. Izuku considers Bakugou's drive to be the best at everything to be his single most admirable trait, following him around as a child in hopes that some of it would rub off on him.
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: His hair resembles a comic book starburst, matching his explosive Quirk.
* BarbaricBully: He spent the last ten years making Izuku's life a living hell for being a Quirkless kid who wants to be a Hero, ostracizing him from his peers, beating him up for standing up for others, and scorching his things.
* BerserkButton: Sometimes it seems like his button is permanently taped down around Izuku, as almost everything he does manages to piss Bakugou off. Bakugou is especially pissed when it looks like Izuku has been hiding his "Quirk" and is so angry that he actually scores even higher on the exam than in canon.
* BigShutUp: Bakugou gets so fed up with Izuku's mumbling over his new "Quirk" that he fires an explosion at Izuku's head, who only dodges because of his newly awakened Spider-Sense.
-->'''Bakugou:''' SHUT THE HELL UP!
* BloodKnight: He relishes the idea of putting Izuku in his place and flashes a sadistic grin while waiting for him to leave school grounds.
* BornWinner: Bakugou is naturally smart and athletic on top of having a rare and powerful Quirk.
* TheBully: Bakugou, as usual, belittles Izuku at almost every turn and no one in their class has the gall to call him out on it nor do they care about Izuku enough to try.
* BullyAndWimpPairing: This was his dynamic with Izuku for years until Izuku's new spider powers shook things up.
* ButtMonkey: After Izuku received his powers, Bakugou is repeatedly humiliated in public. First, Izuku shoves him all the way down a hallway without meaning to. He's faceplanted into the ground by Peter the same day and Bakugou's ComicalOverreacting is caught on video and made memetic by his classmates. With a few weeks, he loses all the social clout he once commanded and even Bakugou's own cronies admit that they can't wait to be rid of him.
* ChildhoodFriend: He and Izuku have known each other since they were kids. Izuku used to follow Bakugou around as one of his groupies, but their relationship soured after Izuku was outed as Quirkless, leading to years of bullying and torment.
* ComicalOverreacting: His over-the-top temper tantrums end up being mocked by his peers online once Izuku humiliates him twice. It's gotten to the point that they're making remixes and memes out of them.
* {{Determinator}}: He never gives up. For him, he has to win no matter what, even if it means hurting himself in the process. When Izuku manages to pin him to a wall with webbing, Bakugou's first response is to blast apart the wall he's stuck to, creating shrapnel jagged enough to embed themselves in his body, to free himself and continue fighting. Despite lacking SuperToughness, he also goes toe-to-toe with Izuku and both of them are covered in injuries by the end of their brawl.
* EasilyForgiven: Izuku is amazingly willing to forgive Bakugou for years upon years of bullying because he sees Bakugou as an inspiration: someone who is strong, intelligent and confident with an unyielding drive to succeed. He doesn't even blame Bakugou for actively trying to make him miserable, calling him a product of the society they live in. Even when Bakugou makes it clear that he plans on beating the crap out of Izuku, the latter continues to rationalize it and harps on Peter for faceplanting Bakugou.
* EveryoneHasStandards: For as much as he bullies and belittles Izuku, Bakugou certainly doesn't want to see Izuku ''die.'' After blasting the spider that bit Izuku to pieces, Bakugou rushes him to the hospital and tries to ignore him rather than bully him on the day Izuku gets back to school.
* FatalFlaw: His {{Pride}} and HairTriggerTemper are the only things keeping him from being an automatic born Hero. Both of these traits alienate others from him and give him a nasty disposition unsuited for superheroism. They also prevent him from confronting his own inadequacies and make him lash out at those who point them out to him.
* {{Foil}}:
** To Izuku. Izuku is the BornUnlucky NervousWreck who dreams of being a cool Hero whose smile could make others feel safe like All Might, but was stuck with his GeekPhysique and DreamCrushingHandicap until the spider bite. Bakugou is a BornWinner with smarts, athleticism, and a powerful Quirk. He primarily wants to become a Hero to prove how strong he is, as he admires the indomitable strength of All Might.
** To Mitsuki. While they both possess similar temperaments, Katsuki was born into a stable, upper middle-class household thanks to his mom's efforts and grew up with constant adoration and praise for his talents. Mitsuki was born into a Burakumin family, growing up in a rough neighborhood and being targeted for discrimination until she clawed her way out. She also admits her mistakes and is friendly to those she cares about, compared to her son's tendency to backpedal into old habits when his ego is bruised.
* ForWantOfANail: Due to Izuku's hospitalization from the spider bite, neither he nor Bakugou are attacked by the Sludge Villain. Because of this, Bakugou never gets his first serving of HumblePie and simply backpedals into old habits when his ego is bruised by Izuku's new spider powers and fame.
* FreudianExcuse: No one called him out on his behavior when he was growing up, as his mom tried to discipline him through screaming and violence, his dad was too much of a wet blanket to stand up to either of them, and his peers tolerated him because of how much more talented he was than them. Even Izuku, the primary victim of Bakugou's behavior, didn't want his mom to call Mitsuki about this out of fear that they'll stop the two of them from hanging out together. As a result, Bakugou spent the last ten years of his life in an echo chamber where everyone treated him as the coolest thing ever and no one bothered to correct him, resulting in his incredible ego and anger issues.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Most people in his social circle suck up to him out of fear rather than respect. Once Izuku accidentally humiliates him, Bakugou rapidly loses clout with his peers. It gets so bad that people are making memes of his short scuffles with Izuku behind Bakugou's back and admit that they can't wait to be rid of him. Izuku is stunned and feels guilty for this. According to the author, this realization is actually scaring Bakugou, who backpedals into old habits instead of trying to correct his behavior, as he still doesn't understand what he's doing wrong.
* GenerationXerox: He's a carbon copy of his mother in terms of looks and temperament, only his unrestrained pride makes him blow up at everyone rather than just a few people.
* GeniusBruiser: Naturally athletic and strong with excellent grades and a rare, powerful Quirk. Even after getting spider-powers, Izuku is extremely wary of challenging him to a fight and is usually frozen like a DeerInTheHeadlights when Bakugou is angry.
* TheGift: Bakugou is absurdly talented at anything he decides to put his mind to, be it athletics, academics, his usage of his Quirk. The only things he seems to be lacking in are his his social skills and ability to control his temper, which weren't helped by the echo chamber of praise he received while growing up.
* GoodIsNotNice: He's wholeheartedly behind the idea of becoming a Hero... only his view of what a Hero should represent is skewed towards winning every single fight.
* HairTriggerTemper: Anything that contrasts his world view is enough to send him off on a tirade. His own mom calls him out on this, scolding him for throwing temper tantrums that could ruin his chances of becoming the Hero he wants to be and for how petty his grudge against Izuku is.
* HandBlast: He primarily utilizes his Quirk through his hands.
* HavingABlast: Bakugou can create explosions at will by igniting his nitroglycerin like sweat.
* HeroWithAnFInGood: For someone who wants to be a Hero, Bakugou's temperament is anything but. He's bratty, short-tempered, and always feels like things have to go his way. He has a colossal ego and constantly bullies and belittles Izuku for wanting to be a Hero despite being a scrawny, Quirkless nerd. The only times he's ever on his good behavior is when he's in front of a teacher and has to keep his record clean in time for his application to U.A. and when his mom is busy yelling his ear off.
* HotBlooded: He never gives less than 100% of his all and is devoted to becoming a Hero. However, these traits are also portrayed in a negative light, as Bakugou is exceptionally irritable with a HairTriggerTemper, throwing fits whenever things don't go his way.
* HybridPower: His Quirk was derived from a combination of his father's and mother's Quirks, who could produce nitric acid and glycerin respectively. Nitric acid + glycerin = nitroglycerin.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: He's utterly obsessed with being the best. When Izuku discovers his "Quirk", Bakugou believes he was lying about being Quirkless the whole time to mock him. This perceived slight to his pride makes Bakugou flip out and hunt Izuku down in hopes of showing him who's boss.
* InsufferableGenius: Bakugou is great at everything he does and works to make sure that remains the case. But a childhood spent being showered with adoration, an overly busy and somewhat violent mother, and a wet blanket of a father left Bakugou with a gargantuan ego. He never hesitates to rub in how little he thinks of his peers and constantly goes on and on about how he's the best, throwing temper tantrums if anyone suggests otherwise. Izuku admits that he's partially to blame for this, as he refused to let his mom call Mitsuki about this out of fear that they'll make him stop hanging out with Bakugou.
* ItsAllAboutMe: When Izuku discovers his "Quirk", Bakugou's first reaction is outrage out of the mistaken belief that Izuku was hiding this Quirk the whole time for kicks, regardless of how stupid or convoluted that sounds. His own mother calls him out on this, telling Bakugou that the world doesn't revolve around him and his piss-poor attitude could cost him his chance of becoming a Hero.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Bakugou may be a {{Jerkass}} who constantly belittles Izuku and leads his entire class in bullying him, he's far from ''evil'' and can't bear to just watch Izuku die, rushing him to the hospital as fast as he could. He also sent his own (lazily made) get-well card that reads, "If you can read this then get your ass up you damn nerd!" This actually puts a smile on Izuku's face when compared to all of the other cards that were mostly insincere and written out of politeness.
-->'''Izuku:''' Good old Kacchan.
* KidsAreCruel: Ever since Izuku was outed as Quirkless, Bakugou has been bullying him and going out of his way to make Izuku miserable. He belittles him with the nickname Deku, scorches Izuku's things, and used to chase Izuku around and beat him to a pulp for defying him.
* LightningBruiser: He can keep up with Izuku in nearly every regard (albeit, while [[WillfullyWeak Izuku is holding back to avoid turning anyone into bloody chunks]]) and has both him and Jirou on the ropes through his ability to take punishment and dish out an equal amount of desruction.
* NoPeripheralVision: Izuku is able to lose him for weeks simply by sticking to the ceiling or walls outside of Bakugou's direct line of sight.
* PersonalityPowers: Bakugou's [[HavingABlast sweat]] is as a volatile as his [[HairTriggerTemper temper]].
* PetTheDog: Once Izuku starts being affected by the spider's venom Bakugou shows genuine concern. Once he passes out, Bakugou rushes him to the hospital, informs the police about what happened and even leaves a crassly worded get-well card for him.
* RealityEnsues: Bakugou mainly kept people behind him through fear and awe: no one wanted to get on his bad side out of fear of getting their asses kicked and how much better he was than them at everything. He loses most of his social clout after getting humiliated by Izuku and even his own lackies admit that they can't wait to be rid of him once they graduate.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Bakugou has red irises and is a thoroughly unpleasant person to be around most of the time with his constant aggression and ego.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: Bakugou shares his violent attitude and highly volatile temper with his mother, who at least knows when to stop.
* ShutUpKirk: He flips out at Izuku while they're both in Mitsuki's car. She gives Katsuki an earful over this, but he refuses to listen and throws the door open to leave rather than continue the argument.
* StunnedSilence: He's rendered speechless when he sees Izuku destroy his desk with SuperStrength. That shock quickly turns into rage and he's ready to throttle Izuku for hiding his "Quirk".
* TalentedButTrained: Zigzagged. Bakugou was born with TheGift and is talented at pretty much everything. But Izuku knows that for as talented as Bakugou is, he would have never gotten that far if he didn't put 110% into practicing everything he does every day.
* ThisCannotBe: His reaction to scoring third on Aizawa's exam behind Izuku is this. He gapes at the scoreboard as if it was telling him the sky is green and that aliens had shown up at the U.N.

mentioned in nearly every regard (albeit, while [[WillfullyWeak Izuku is holding back to avoid turning anyone into bloody chunks]]) and has both him and Jirou on the ropes through his ability to take punishment and dish out an equal amount of desruction.
* NoPeripheralVision: Izuku is able to lose him for weeks simply by sticking to the ceiling or walls outside of Bakugou's direct line of sight.
* PersonalityPowers: Bakugou's [[HavingABlast sweat]] is as a volatile as his [[HairTriggerTemper temper]].
* PetTheDog: Once Izuku starts being affected by the spider's venom Bakugou shows genuine concern. Once he passes out, Bakugou rushes him to the hospital, informs the police about what happened and even leaves a crassly worded get-well card for him.
* RealityEnsues: Bakugou mainly kept people behind him through fear and awe: no one wanted to get on his bad side out of fear of getting their asses kicked and how much better he was than them at everything. He loses most of his social clout after getting humiliated by Izuku and even his own lackies admit that they can't wait to be rid of him once they graduate.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Bakugou has red irises and is a thoroughly unpleasant person to be around most of the time with his constant aggression and ego.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: Bakugou shares his violent attitude and highly volatile temper with his mother, who at least knows when to stop.
* ShutUpKirk: He flips out at Izuku while they're both in Mitsuki's car. She gives Katsuki an earful over this, but he refuses to listen and throws the door open to leave rather than continue the argument.
* StunnedSilence: He's rendered speechless when he sees Izuku destroy his desk with SuperStrength. That shock quickly turns into rage and he's ready to throttle Izuku for hiding his "Quirk".
* TalentedButTrained: Zigzagged. Bakugou was born with TheGift and is talented at pretty much everything. But Izuku knows that for as talented as Bakugou is, he would have never gotten that far if he didn't put 110% into practicing everything he does every day.
* ThisCannotBe: His reaction to scoring third on Aizawa's exam behind Izuku is this. He gapes at the scoreboard as if it was telling him the sky is green and that aliens had shown up at the U.N.

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Downplayed. She's got sandy blond hair like her son, but is a warm and friendly woman who happily offers Izuku a ride home and worked hard to secure a good life for her family. However, she has a nasty temper and a tendency to get physical when her son is acting up.
* OppositesAttract: Mitsuki is a fiery and strong woman but calls her husband Masaru a wet blanket by comparison.
* ParentalNeglect: Mitsuki worked hard to earn a better life for herself and her family, but her busy work life left little time for her to spend time with or get to know her son. Because of this, she's oblivious to how badly Izuku's and her son's relationship has deteriorated and believes they're still close until Katsuki throws a fit in the car.
* ParentsAsPeople: She deeply loves her son and husband, but is so busy at work that she isn't as much of an influence in her son's life as she wants to be. She's dismayed at how she let him become such a domineering {{Jerkass}} and pleads with Izuku to not give up on him. Her discipline usually consists on yanking on her son's ear and shouting at him, which contributes to his lack of respect for her.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Zigzagged. She's warm and friendly to Izuku and congratulates him on getting his Quirk and for his bravery during the Prowler incident. But she tends to get physical during her spats with her own son.
* SelfMadeWoman: She worked hard to build up the financial and social clout necessary to shed the stigma of being born into a Burakumin family because she didn't want her child to grow up with the same prejudice she faced.
* StacysMom: The first thing that strikes Izuku after seeing her for the first time in years is how stunningly beautiful she is.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Katsuki is practically a gender-flipped carbon copy of her.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives a scathing She gives one to Izuku for his showboating during the U.A. Entrance Exam and his reckless actions during the Prowler Incident. It haunts Izuku even Katsuki after she finds out just how horrible and petty he is to Izuku.

!!Minoru Mineta
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #7 - Boy Falls From The Sky
[[quoteright:240:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mineta.png]]

A short, perverted student who ended up in last place during Aizawa’s Quirk Assessment Exam. Despite his less than stellar physical skills, his creative usage of his Quirk saved him from getting expelled. His Quirk, "Pop Off", allows him to quickly pull highly adhesive balls from his head, although pulling too many will rip off his scalp and cause bleeding.
----
* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: Appears in the story during the Entrance Exam, despite being introduced in the manga when Izuku enters Class 1-A.
* ButtMonkey: Nothing goes right for Mineta. Not only is he yelled at by Bakugou during the Entrance Exam, but Mineta ends up in last place during Aizawa’s test and has a panic attack from fear of being expelled. Despite trying to hug his teacher in gratitude, Aizawa steps to the side and mercilessly lets Mineta land face-first onto the ground.
* BoringButPractical: While his Quirk doesn’t appear to be impressive, Mineta was able to use it to increase the speed of his side-steps by making piles on them on his sides and bouncing off of them.
* DepravedDwarf: Shortest in the class and unashamedly perverted to the point of reading some form of pornography before class starts.

----
* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: In the original series, Monoma doesn't appear until the Sports Festival, setting up the rivalry between 1-A and 1-B. Here, he meets Izuku at Bespi Tower while trying to figure out which Quirks to use while jumping off of it.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: He maintains an air of condescension around himself at all times. But he immediately feels the need to declare how he's going to leave Izuku in the dust once they get to U.A. after learning that Izuku is the "Prowler Kid".
* InstantExpert: Subverted. He doesn't get prior knowledge of any Quirks he's copying, so he goes around asking people about their Quirks so he knows what he's working with once he jumps off a building.
* PowerCopying: He's able to use the Quirk of anyone he touches for five minutes, but doesn't become an InstantExpert either.
* SmugSnake: He's condescending towards Izuku for wanting to jump off Bespi Tower without using his Quirk and constantly has a smug grin on his face. He also declares that Izuku's moment in the sun won't last for long.

[[caption-width-right:350:[[labelnote:Click here to see his real self post-injury.]]https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/all_might_full_body_true_form.png]][[/labelnote]]

Japan's greatest Hero and Izuku's lifelong idol. A man known for his incredible strength, boundless kindness, and unbelievable charisma, he's the Hero everyone aspires to be. His work in bringing down crime in Japan has led others to call him the "Symbol of Peace".
----
* HundredPercentHeroismRating: He's almost universally beloved for his heroism and kindness. The only people who don't like him are Villains and Endeavor.
* TheAce: He's the most powerful and respected Hero in Japan, beloved by the public and making short work of even the most dangerous of Villains in an instant.
* AdaptationRelationshipOverhaul: In the original My Hero Academia, Izuku becomes All Might's successor and they develop an almost familial relationship that All Might describes as thicker than blood. Here, All Might has already found his successor but chases down Izuku to encourage him to become a Hero anyways.
* ArsonMurderAndLifesaving: He confronts Izuku about running in to save Peter. At first he talks about how reckless and dangerous Izuku's actions were and asked what was going through Izuku's head when it happened. When Izuku explains that his legs moved on their own, All Might grins and says that this behavior is ''exactly'' what makes an amazing Hero.
* BigDamnHeroes: He shows up when the Prowler is threatening to blow a hole in Mount Lady's neck after Izuku interfered, swiftly defusing the hostage situation until Mysterio shows up.
* BloodFromTheMouth: He frequently coughs up blood as one of the many consequences of his injury.
* BoisterousBruiser: His entrances are heralded by his booming laughter and he's more than happy to call any Villain on their bluffs.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: He has chosen his successor to the sacred torch of One For All, a unique Quirk that grows in power as it's handed from user to user.
* DemotedToExtra: In the original ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', All Might is one of Izuku's closest confidants as the previous holder of One For All, frequently appearing in the story to offer him advice or explain more about the Quirk. Here, he has already found a successor, leading to far fewer appearances as they simply don't have the same relationship that they do in canon.
* DynamicEntry: He makes his first in-person appearance in the story by appearing out of the blue and punching Prowler down the street while swiping the detonator from her hands.
* GameBreakingInjury: Years before the story began, All Might lost his digestive system and half of his respiratory system in a titanic battle with his nemesis, All For One. As a result, his condition has been steadily deteriorating and he can only remain a hero for three hours a day, after which he's reduced to a husk of his former self.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Has a head of golden blonde hair and is the kindest Hero imaginable.
* HeroicFatigue: He became tired and cynical after years of being the Symbol of Peace thanks to the stress of being everywhere for everyone, maintaining his secret, and having to choose his successor. His passion for heroics was only restored when he witnessed Izuku rush into the fray to help Peter.
* HopeBringer: His job is to bring hope to everyone in need with his arrival. When All Might is on the scene, saving the day becomes a certainty rather than a possibility.
* InASingleBound: He usually gets around by leaping enormous distances with his Quirk.
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: All Might is frequently coughing because of his injury and he knows his time will come eventually. He lampshades it, lamenting how his new co-workers at U.A. see him as a man who could kick the bucket at any time rather than the Symbol of Peace he aspires to be.
* LightningBruiser: He's fast enough to create sonic booms when he's running at full speed and powerful enough to shatter androids with a single punch. He's also tough enough to be almost totally unscathed after a miniature rocket exploded in his face.
* NothingButSkinAndBones: His "true form" after his injury is a shriveled husk of a man as the loss of his stomach and lung allowed his once powerful physique to waste away.
* TheParagon: His heroics have inspired entire generations of Heroes, including Izuku, to take up the mantle.
* PerpetualSmiler: He's known for having a wide grin on his face at all times to assure people that everything is going to be alright.
* PersonalityPowers: The archetypal superhero and TheParagon just so happens to have incredible SuperStrength.
* SecretIdentity: His real name and the nature of his Quirk are both kept from the public, which is a rarity among Heroes in the modern day. This is to prevent news of his injury from reaching the public and potentially destabilizing society.
* ShowyInvincibleHero: Has a reputation for this thanks to his LargeHam tendencies and incredible power, but due to his injury the truth is much more complicated.
* SupermanSubstitute: Wears red and blue, keeps up a SecretIdentity, and is the premier example of TheCape on his Earth. This is on top of being TheParagon and the WorldsStrongestMan.
* SuperStrength: His Quirk gives him enormous strength, creating sonic booms as he approaches and easily dispersing a cloud of fog with a ShockwaveClap. He also tears through Mysterio's androids as if they were made of papier-mache.
* WorldsStrongestMan: He's by and far away the most powerful and successful Hero in Japan, if not the world.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: While it initially seems like he's going to chew out Izuku for intervening in the Prowler's attempt to kill Peter, he assures him that this willingness to rush in without a second thought is what will make Izuku an amazing Hero.

The principal of U.A. Although he's some kind of furry animal, his Quirk, "High Specs", grants him intelligence and calculation power far surpassing any human on Earth.
----
* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: His Quirk gives him intelligence surpassing humans.
* AnimalSuperhero: He's a non-human Pro Hero of a school designed to train the next generation of superheroes.
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Downplayed. He was experimented on for being a rare animal with a Quirk and takes some sadistic pleasure in watching his students squirm. But he remains good-natured and is a respected Pro Hero. [[spoiler:In fact, he shielded Izuku from the government, who would have [[TheyWouldCutYouUp "tested" him]] and his powers in hopes of replicating the process.]]
* BigGood: As the principal of the top Hero school in Japan, he's informally this.
* CartoonCreature: He's supposedly a mouse, but is the size of a dog and possesses a cat-like tail. Then there's his ability to hold onto things without a problem despite lacking opposable thumbs.
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal: He's fully clothed like any human despite being an animal.
* GoodIsNotDumb: Aside from being the smartest thing on Earth, Nezu is wary enough to background check all potential students at U.A. He's suspicious of Izuku's vast array of ComboPlatterPowers from the get-go and decides to investigate them above All Might's complaints about it being unnecessary.
* IntellectualAnimal: His Quirk is SuperIntelligence, making him the smartest thing on Earth.
* LargeAndInCharge: Inverted. He's the size of a dog and the head of U.A.
* MundaneUtility: SuperIntelligence is great for managing a world-class school and conducting investigations, but it's also great for figuring out how to hold things without opposable thumbs.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He's wary enough to perform background checks on all prospective students but puts their welfare first above all. [[spoiler:After determining that Izuku didn't get his powers from a certain suspicious individual, he tells Izuku that his admission was never in-doubt and that he'd simply be monitored closely as an unprecedented case, as he's more than earned his place at U.A.]]
* RodentsOfUnusualSize: He's supposedly a mouse, but he's the size of a dog.
* RuggedScar: Has one running across his eye as a memento of his days as a lab rat.
* SuperIntelligence: His Quirk, "High Specs", makes him smarter than any human on Earth. This lets him run the finest Hero school in Japan, work as a Pro Hero, and even [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking learn how to hold things without opposable thumbs.]]
* SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands: He has the testing grounds for the U.A. Entrance Exam littered with cameras to eye particularly promising aspiring students and watch out for cheating. The walls are also littered with sensors to track the output of certain Quirks and make sure they match what's been put onto the forms. [[spoiler:Izuku's ability to make these sensors go haywire by phasing through them is what tips Nezu off that Izuku's powers aren't from a Quirk.]]
* TheyWouldCutYouUp: As an extremely rare animal with a Quirk, Nezu was experimented on in the past, as evidenced by the scar running across his eye. [[spoiler:This has made him understandably wary of the government, prompting him to shield Izuku from their "testing" by promising to have U.A. monitor Izuku's abilities instead.]]

The S&M-themed R-18+ Hero and a teacher at U.A. While she's passionate about both of her jobs, her devotion to staying in-character can rub her co-workers the wrong way. Her Quirk, "Somnambulist", lets her emit a sleep-inducing fragrance from her body.
----
* BunnyEarsLawyer: As devoted as she is to staying in-character while on the job, she's a fantastic teacher and Hero.
* DoubleEntendre: Keeping in with her theme, a good portion of what comes out of her mouth is this. All Might considers it a wonder that she hasn't been hit with a sexual harassment lawsuit yet.
-->'''Midnight:''' These boys are certainly showing their stuff. If we whip them into shape, they'll become amazing in…\\

'''Midnight:''' Come on, Ectoplasm, can't a girl crack a joke? ''[shrugs]'' Still, I'm curious. What the heck are they feeding kids nowadays for bodies and stamina like that? Because their parents are doing ''several'' things right! ''[collective groaning]''
* DressedLikeADominatrix: Despite her heroic profession, she carries around a whip and struts around in a white bodysuit with thigh-high stockings and heels and carries a whip as a weapon.
* HotForStudent: PlayedForLaughs, but she's impressed by the "stamina" of various examinees, including Izuku and Bakugou, and believes that they'll be amazing once they're whipped into shape.
* MeaningfulName: Her real name contains the kanji for "fragrance" and "sleep", while her Hero name has a double meaning: both "midnight" as in bedtime as well her moonlighting as a Hero who caters to an adult crowd.
* MsFanservice: Just ''look'' at her.
* RapunzelHair: Her hair goes down to her waist.

!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #7 - Boy Falls From The Sky
[[quoteright:160:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shouta_aizawa.png]]

The “Underground” Erasing Hero and homeroom teacher of Class 1-A. While he may be generally apathetic and lazy about things that do not interest him, he has an eye for talent and ingenuity while having zero patience for any student that doesn’t take U.A seriously. His Quirk, "Erasure", allows him to nullify others' control over their Quirks just by looking at them. Blinking dispels the effect of his Quirk and using it gives him very dry eyes.
----
* AntiMagic: His Quirk effectively nullifies one other person's Quirk, as long as it's an emitter or transformation Quirk and not a permanently active mutation Quirk. However, because Izuku’s powers are not from a Quirk, Aizawa’s ability has no effect on him.
* BrutalHonesty: Instead of letting the students believe his threat to expel the student in last place was a ruse, he outright tells them he would have expelled Mineta and even all of them if they didn’t show they had potential.
* CelebrityIsOverrated: Dislikes the attention of the media, believing that it gets in the way of his job as a hero. This results in him being very obscure to the general population. He also doesn’t sponsor many products, and the only one he does in order to make money is a powerful coffee brand.
* ClothFu: His scarf isn’t just a fashion statement. It’s a support item he uses to tie unruly students like Bakugou and Villains up.
* CruelToBeKind: His way of teaching is that it's better to be mean and unfair to the students to help prepare them for the future of dealing with natural disasters and villains.
* HeroicRROD: He suffers from dry eye while using his Quirk because he has to stare at his opponent for so long.
* ILied: Subverted. Aizawa tells his students that he was not joking about expelling the last student if they didn’t meet his standards.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While Aizawa is generally unpleasant to be around with his apathy and no-nonsense behavior towards heroism, he does take his job seriously and tells Mineta that he does have the potential to become a Hero due to how he used his Quirk in a unique way.
* LazyBum: Refuses to leave his sleeping bag unless absolutely necessary and insists on crawling to class instead of getting out and walking. It’s a joke amongst Japan’s Heroes that if he hadn’t become a Hero, Aizawa would’ve [[TheShutIn never left home.]]
* SinkOrSwimMentor: He has incredibly high standards for what makes a Hero, including the ability to grow and adapt one's Quirk to numerous situations. Failing to meet any of his standards will result in immediate expulsion.

----
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: His character for his cooking shows is a lot ruder and more curse-happy than the one who asks Izuku and his friends how they are enjoying their meals. Lunch Rush also provides food to victims of natural disasters.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The mention that he curses at professional chefs in his show makes him similar to Creator/GordonRamsay.
* SupremeChef: He has studied how various cultures cook rice in order to create the best possible recipe for it. His rice is so good that Uraraka goes in-depth praising it.

----
* BuildingSwing: He can create branches to swing around, not unlike Izuku's and Peter's usage of their web-shooters.
* CavalryRefusal: Not willingly. He's the one of the Pro Heroes who arrives to save Peter from the Prowler, but is forced to stand by idly and control the crowd after Prowler placed a bomb on Mount Lady's neck.
* CoolHelmet: Wears a wooden helmet that covers his face, giving him a ninja-like appearance.
* GreenThumb: His Quirk lets him produce wood from his own body, which he can use to entangle his foes, get around by swinging with branches, among other things.
* NiceGuy: He's kind and understanding, gently helping Izuku down from the building he crawled up and not reprimanding him more than necessary. He's also impressed by Izuku's WallCrawling and {{Intangibility}} "Quirks" and offers him an internship once he graduates from Hero School.

A rising Pro Hero whose popularity has grown thanks to her flashy gigantification Quirk, her [[MsFanservice sex appeal]], and willingness to do anything to get attention. She's a shameless media glutton, but she has a heart of gold underneath her desire for fame and fortune.
----
* AttentionWhore: She's loves being in the limelight and will do everything from appear on questionable magazine covers to shaking her ass at the cameras to get more attention.
* CavalryRefusal: Not willingly, but she and the other Pro Heroes on the scene have to stand by and watch as Prowler kicks Peter's ass because of the bomb she placed on Mount Lady's neck.
* DamselInDistress: Prowler attaches a bomb to her neck that will go off if she ever lets go of the trigger, forcing Mount Lady to stand perfectly still while Peter gets beaten down,
* DestructiveSavior: Her agency is in the red because of the constant collateral damage she causes with her Quirk while she's operating in a city, giving her little room to move.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Justified. Her costume is specially made to withstand her Quirk, meaning that any normal shoes would be torn to bits once she grows to her full height. This also means that she'll easily tear and damage her feet if she tries to kick anything while she's enormous.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's happy to try and steal the credit for taking down the Prowler, is dismissive of some of her fans, and writes Peter off as a "Spider-Man wannabe". At the same time, she can't bear the thought of civilians getting hurt on her watch and would rather die than see a bystander injured.
* KillSteal: She took down a Villain that Kamui Woods was handling, stealing the credit for herself.
* LazyBum: She's happy when there are no crimes for her to stop and she can go home and watch TV in a ratty old t-shirt while eating cheap delivery food.
* MsFanservice: Her costume is formfitting and she has no problems with waving her butt at the camera.
* PersonalityPowers: The AttentionWhore has a Quirk that makes her grow bigger.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: She has zero issues with waving her butt at cameras or appearing on sketchy magazine covers to get attention and recognition.

----
* TheBigGuy: He's big and burly, as suited for a guy with SuperStrength.
* CavalryRefusal: Not willingly. He's the one of the Pro Heroes who arrives to save Peter from the Prowler, but is forced to stand by idly and control the crowd after Prowler placed a bomb on Mount Lady's neck.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He chews Izuku out for running into the middle of a dangerous hostage situation to try and save Peter, noting that he could have been killed if not for his "Quirks". He's apparently unheroic enough to be on [[BlackAndWhiteMorality Stain's]] hit list ([[BlackAndWhiteInsanity not that it's hard to get on there]]).
* HeroicBuild: He's got a well-built physique to match his SuperStrength.
* MeaningfulName: His hero name in Japanese is spoken as "Desutegoro", which comes from the word ''sutegoro'', a yakuza term for "hand-to-hand/barehanded combat".

----
* AlwaysSecondBest: He was never able to become the Number One Hero even after spending decades in the business thanks to All Might hogging the spot for himself.

* BadassBeard: He maintains a beard of fire while in public that flares when he's annoyed.
* GeniusBruiser: He has the highest number of completed cases of any Hero, including All Might, solving them through his own investigative skills. He's also an incredibly powerful Hero who is skilled at both ranged and close-combat with the muscles to prove it.
* GoodIsNotNice: He usually manages to remain professional around other Heroes, but he's also a {{Jerkass}} who barely manages to keep his contempt and jealousy of All Might hidden.

* ApologeticAttacker: He apologizes to nearby civilians for taking their drinks while trying to stop the Rocker Racers.

** Masaki can be read as both "Masaki" and "Seiki", the latter means "regular"/"normal", referring to his [[InvokedTrope intentional status]] as TheGenericGuy.
** Mizushima includes the kanji for water, alluding to his Quirk.
* TheWorfEffect: He's a respected Pro Hero, but is quickly taken out by one of the Rocket Racers' explosive weapons to show just how dangerous Mysterio's tech is to the average Hero.

!!The Prowler
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #1: What If?

A master thief who has just resurfaced after years of absence. A ruthless criminal who [[LeaveNoWitnesses does not leave witnesses]], she mysteriously spares Izuku after her attempted heist of a genetically-altered spider goes awry. She continues to evade capture even with the police force and Japan's greatest Hero on her tail. Her motives, identity, and clientele are all unknown.
----
* AdaptationalBadass: In the comics, the Prowler is a BadassNormal who uses a variety of gadgets ala Franchise/{{Batman}}. Here, [[GenderFlip she]] has the ability to [[GravityMaster manipulate her own gravity]], enough SuperStrength to hurt Peter, ''and'' the gadgets and training of her comics counterpart.
* AdaptationalSuperpowerChange: In the comics, the Prowler is a BadassNormal. Here, she has some degree of SuperStrength and [[GravityMaster the ability to manipulate her own gravity]].
* BadassBiker: The Prowler is badass enough to be a match for Peter and has a customized motorcycle that she hops on to turn him into roadkill when they take the fight outside. In combination with her gravity Quirk and gadgetry, she's able to ride along walls and perform death-defying stunts that would make ComicBook/GhostRider jealous.
* BigShutUp: Says this to Peter after he webbed her up and won't stop quipping throughout their fight. [[LanguageBarrier Of course, it falls on deaf ears because he can't understand a lick of Japanese.]]
-->'''Prowler:''' DAMARE![[note]]An extremely rude version of "BE SILENT!" OR "SHUT IT!"[[/note]]
* BikerBabe: The Prowler calls in a customized motorcycle during her fight with Peter, fully intent on turning him into roadkill.
* CombatPragmatist: She overturns a truck to force Peter to stop it, which ends up injuring him even more badly and making him easy pickings even after other Heroes began to arrive. She then attaches a bomb to Mount Lady's neck and threatens to kill her if the other Heroes intervene.
* ComboPlatterPowers: She has the ability to manipulate her personal gravity on top of enough SuperStrength to easily NeckLift Izuku and beat the crap out of Peter, who both have the proportionate strength of a spider.
* CoolBike: The Prowler's motorcycle can drive itself and hop along nearby vehicles so she could meet it in midair before driving it back down to the ground in preparation to fight.
* CreateYourOwnHero: Her failed raid on the research facility allowed the spider to bite Izuku, giving him powers. After that, her bungled attempt to assassinate Peter led Izuku to rush into the fray to help him. This inspires All Might and gets him to encourage Izuku to become a Hero. In short, if it weren't for Prowler, Izuku would not have become a Hero.
* DarkActionGirl: The Prowler is HellBentForLeather, badass enough to take on Spider-Man one-on-one, and has escaped capture from all of Japan's greatest Heroes.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: All For One implies that Prowler spared Izuku because she knows him personally in her civilian identity.
* FlippingTheBird: Gives the middle finger to Mysterio while he's busy chastising her for failing to kill Peter.
* GenderFlip: In the comics, the Prowler was the male Hobie Brown or Aaron Davis. Here, she's a woman.
* GravityMaster: Her Quirk lets her control her own gravity, allowing her and her bike to run along walls and ceilings.
* TheHeavy: She's All For One's liaison to Mysterio and most frequent agent in the early parts of the story. Her actions drive the events that lead to Izuku's empowerment and her highly dangerous and destructive equipment gets the police to start looking into Mysterio.
* HellBentForLeather: The Prowler is decked out in a purple leather top with a matching purple vest and a purple mask to conceal her identity.
* HeroesPreferSwords: Inverted. She utilizes a shinai while most of the Pro Heroes she fights don't.
* ImplacableWoman: She's so determined to get her mark that it takes the likes of [[WorldsStrongestMan All Might]] to get her to think twice about chasing after Peter. Being kicked through a wall, weaving through oncoming traffic, and getting punched down the street do little to stop her prior to this.
* JapaneseDelinquents: Prowler’s costume, which includes a long coat with kanji on the back and semi-baggy pants, makes Izuku note she looks like a Villain version of a Sukeban delinquent. Prowler also has a tendency to use rude language and curse on top of using a metal shinai akin to the bats and other {{Improvised Weapon}}s used by delinquents.
* KickChick: While she has a mean hook, she seems to prefer kicks when she isn't using claws, dropkicking Peter down the street and stomping on him with her boots.
* KickThemWhileTheyreDown: She happily stomps on Peter's face while he's groaning and on the floor from his back, shoulder, and foot injuries.
* LeaveNoWitnesses: Her M.O., leading to Izuku's confusion when she clearly knew he was there but didn't decide to kill him.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The Prowler is given [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMRsxiiCw08 Overhaul's theme]] for her introduction, emphasizing just how intimidating she is to Izuku.
* NeckLift: She picks up Izuku by the scruff of his collar when he gets in the way of her fight with Peter.
* OhCrap: Has this reaction when All Might reveals that he swiped the detonation switch she was using to hold Mount Lady hostage and threw it into another prefecture, as it's the only thing keeping him from kicking her ass.
* PowerGlows: She and whatever her gravity Quirk is affecting glows purple. Her claws glow green when activated.
* PurpleIsPowerful: The Prowler is decked out in purple and is a world-class thief skilled enough to evade even All Might under certain conditions. She goes toe-to-toe with Peter after ambushing him at the abandoned building he's living in. When they take the fight to the streets, she takes Mount Lady hostage while she whaled on Peter. By the end, only All Might can save everyone from this predicament.
* RocketBoots: The Prowler uses these to great effect against Peter, accelerating herself to slam him into the ground, performing mid-air acrobatics, and generally outmaneuvering Peter on most occasions.
* SecondaryColorNemesis: The Prowler's purple costume with green flame designs contrasts Peter's PrimaryColorChampion.
* ShockAndAwe: The Prowler's shinai can produce electricity, paralyzing those struck by it.
* SirSwearsALot: She cusses up a storm while arguing with her client over the missing spider. When she's fighting Peter, he assumes that she's spitting a flurry of Japanese curses at him given the tone of her voice.
* SuperStrength: She's strong enough to stagger the superhumanly strong and tough Peter with her blows and breaks his nose with a dropkick. She can also easily pick up Izuku, who recently gained a significant amount of muscle from the spider bite, by the scruff of his collar without a problem.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: She makes it clear to Mysterio that she doesn't like him and that she's only helping him because All For One told her to. She's constantly flippant towards him and refuses to reveal any information about herself to him.
* ThrillSeeker: She seems to be an adrenaline junkie, swan diving out of an open window to get into her bike while spreading her arms wide as if to savor the feeling off falling through the air. She also pulls off an intentionally dangerous stunt that nearly sandwiches her between her bike and a brick wall while chasing Peter through Musutafu. It's further emphasized by her outfit, which is decorated with green fire with giant kanji on the back of her jacket that read "danger" and "risk".
* WallRun: The Prowler is able to run straight up a wall as if gravity didn't affect her. She can also apply this power to her motorcycle, allowing her to ride along walls.
* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: Prowler got most of her new equipment from Mysterio, which explains why it's so much more advanced than anything available to the Japanese government.
* WolverineClaws: The Prowler's gloves elongate into these, easily slicing through an unfinished wall as if it were made of paper. They [[PowerGlows glow green]] when activated.
* WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter: Played with. The Prowler [[LeaveNoWitnesses doesn't leave witnesses]] and carries a collapsible metal shinai, which are traditionally made of bamboo, as one of her primary armaments, implying that she's able to bludgeon people to death with it. It's later revealed that it can also emit electricity to shock others and paralyze them.
* WouldntHurtAChild: Despite Izuku stumbling onto her and getting in her way when she is close to killing Peter, the Prowler is hesitant to physically attack Izuku. Instead, she tells him to mind his own business and threatens Izuku to back off. When they meet again, she chooses to fire a netgun at him rather than shoot him. Then it's subverted when she [[NeckLift lifts Izuku into the air by the collar]] with her WolverineClaws ready until Peter webs her in the face. Mysterio presses her on her hesitation, but she refuses to explain herself.

!!Mysterio's Faction
[[folder:Quentin Beck - Mysterio]]
!!Quentin Beck - Mysterio
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #2: Along Came a Spider-Man

A former special effects artist whose revolutionary but expensive work went unappreciated after the development of CGI. Rather than adapt to the times, he turned to petty crime to get the money he felt he deserved. He has since become one of Peter's most recurring foes, battling and getting defeated time and time again. Tired of being the punchline, Mysterio upped his game, using AIM technology to open a portal to another world where superpowers are an everyday aspect of life. He then began to traffic Quirk users, mutants, weapons, and drugs between his universe and Izuku's to prove himself worthy of being feared.
----
* ActuallyADoombot: His public persona is a robot avatar designed to be as intimidating as possible while reinventing himself in Izuku's world.
* AnAxeToGrind: Mysterio goes at Peter with a rusty axe during their fight.
* ArmsDealer: Mysterio has been providing advanced technology to the criminals and Villains of Izuku’s world. He also deals exclusively with All For One and provided Prowler with her gear. Much of this gear is based on supervillains from his home universe, producing equivalents of [[https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Wilbur_Day_(Earth-616) Stilt-Man]], [[https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Doug_Taggert_(Earth-616) the Grasshopper]], and an entire gang of [[https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Robert_Farrell_(Earth-616) Rocket Racers.]]
* AttentionWhore: Mysterio's crimes began as petty theft. He sank lower and lower as he became more and more obsessed with fame and defeating Spider-Man. Eventually, he became tired of being [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain the punchline]] and turned to much darker and sinister crimes to get the attention and respect he craved.
-->'''Mysterio:''' ''[to Spider-Man]'' You can't do this to me! Not when I've come so far!\\
'''Peter:''' Yeah, and at what cost Quentin? ''[glanced at the portal]'' Selling lives and drugs? Were you really that desperate to be a big shot?\\
'''Mysterio:''' ''[gritting his teeth]'' Better than being a joke… better than being your punchline. Over there I'm something more. I've got respect… hell, soon I'll be bigger than any movie star!
* BigBadDuumvirate: He's in regular contact with All For One, who is his most frequent customer. All For One seems to respect Mysterio enough to lend him Prowler's services.
* BigDamnHeroes: Inverted. He arrives to bail Prowler out after she's cornered by All Might and the other Pro Heroes.
* BondVillainStupidity: He realized a while ago that he could just leave Peter in Izuku's universe to rot without giving him a chance to return home. But Mysterio is too obsessed with reinventing himself and the terror he's able to produce to simply leave Izuku's universe for good.
* BrainsEvilBrawnGood: He fashions himself as All Might's foil: a Villain who dominates through his use of trickery and illusions versus All Might's raw power and brute force. He also has this relationship with Peter, being a non-powered old man versus Peter's superhuman abilities, albeit the gap has narrowed thanks to Mysterio's robot avatar.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: He specializes in dealing out entire wardrobes of superpowered equipment that imitate the tech used by supervillains from his universe.
* CreateYourOwnHero: Prowler's dialogue implied that Mysterio was trying to recreate the spider that bit Peter and gave him powers. If not for this little science project, Izuku may not have ever become Spider-Man.
* EntitledBastard: Mysterio was once a special effects artist but was fired during the rise of {{CGI}} because his effects were just too expensive. Rather than adapt to the times or look for cheaper ways to do his specialty, Mysterio became a supervillain just to get the money he "deserved".
* EvilGenius: A former special effects artist who can build androids that help to sell his illusions and who can create serums for any occasion.
* EvilIsHammy: Mysterio's talent for grandiose speeches hasn't faded.
-->'''Mysterio:''' I am tired of this. Tired of this narrative, tired of Heroes beating Villains through brawn alone and basking in the praise of the sheep-like masses. ''[smoke gathers into a tall, lean figure]'' It is time for a new Villain to rise! A Villain who is the master of the mind and the senses! The perfect foil to the likes of your so-called 'Symbol of Peace'! ''[smoke compresses, tightens and shoots out to reveal him]'' Behold, All Might! Heroes of Japan! BEHOLD MYSTERIO! THE MASTER OF ILLUSION!
* FlamingSkulls: Played with. His robot avatar's head seems to be on fire, but it still shows his facial expressions. Cue Peter lampshading how he's ripping off Ghost Rider.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Mysterio began as frustrated special effects artist who turned to petty theft to get the money he "deserved" and used his illusions to cover his getaways. As he grew older, he became obsessed with becoming more than Spider-Man's punchline. When he used AIM technology to open a portal to another universe, he began trafficking Quirk users and mutants between worlds for experimentation and vivisection, dealing drugs and weapons, and working with people like [[HumanoidAbomination All For One]] and [[MadScientist Mister Sinister]].
* ManBehindTheMan: He's the one giving orders to Prowler, albeit because All For One lent her to him.
* MasterOfIllusion: Mysterio is this and has it for a title, but his "illusions" are based around his revolutionary albeit expensive special effect skills. He shows off his know-how by terrorizing the streets with robotic replicas of Spider-Man's greatest foes, including Kraven, Venom, and Doctor Octopus.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Mysterio never used guns before because it went against his aesthetic, but when Peter captures him he pulls out a revolver to try and shoot Peter. It's only because Peter is shocked that he gets a few words out before Peter makes Mysterio miss. This highlights how low Mysterio has sunk and how desperate he is to retain his new fame within both worlds. Mysterio himself notes that he would have never used the coarse language he addressed Prowler with back in his home universe.
* RapidFireNo: Mysterio says this as Peter starts kicking his ass again.
-->'''Mysterio:''' No, no, no…!\\
'''Peter:''' Oh, yes, yes, yes!
* SanitySlippage: Years of constant defeats turned the already self-centered Mysterio into an individual obsessed with being seen as something more than the guy who Spider-Man beats, resulting in him committing much darker crimes on both worlds.
* SecondaryColorNemesis: Mysterio's original costume is a green bodysuit along with a purple cape and yellow accessories.
* ShockAndAwe: His robot avatar shoots bolts of lightning at Izuku and Peter, but All Might uses his own body as a shield to protect them.
* SignificantWardrobeShift: His robot avatar wears a dark purple skintight, long-sleeved shirt, dark green gloves, and black leather pants. He also wears a dark purple belt with a golden eye as the buckle. This change in costume from his previous, sillier design is meant to emphasize just how much more of a threat he is in Izuku's world when compared to Peter's.
* SuperStrength: His robot avatar is strong enough to easily wrestle with and toss Peter to the ground.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: He's obsessed with being responsible for killing Spider-Man directly or indirectly, which leads him to terrorize Izuku's world when he could just leave Peter in it to rot. His rant to Prowler consists of him demanding that they "squash the bug" and chastising her for being unable to accomplish such a "simple task".
* TookALevelInBadass: Quentin went from a regular (if relatively minor) Spider-Man villain who only had his (fairly impressive) illusions to a much more dangerous and sinister Villain in Izuku's world with SuperStrength, [[ShockAndAwe the ability to shoot out lightning]], and mixing his illusions [[EvilGenius with robotics to make them more deadly]].
* TranslatorMicrobes: His robot avatar is equipped with a sound modulation device that translates his voice into Japanese. The result is noticeably scratchy and clearly artificial. His dialogue is bolded and italicized in the text to reflect this.
* VillainousFriendship: He seems to have a mutual camaraderie with All For One, who refers to him as a friend. If not for this friendship, Mysterio would have tried to humiliate and beat down Prowler for talking back to him.
* WeWillMeetAgain: He declares his debut to be a mere "test run" and that All Might would die at his hands soon enough.
-->'''All Might:''' You are the master of nothing, Mysterio, save for cowardice! No different than any other Villain!\\
'''Mysterio:''' Oh, you shall see Symbol of Peace. Consider this a test run. After all... I had to see if ''his'' stories were true.
* WhamLine: He reveals that he knows Peter's identity just before he leaves the scene.
-->'''Mysterio:''' I told you before, bug… Here, I am something else. I am going to make sure you die here. You will never see your home again, and you will die knowing that [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou I was the one to finally beat you.]] Not Osborn, not Octavius, not Kraven, not Fisk or even Li. It's just going to be me… Parker.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Justified, as Peter's Spider-Sense would let him dodge most bullets anyways. He ''is'' surprised when Mysterio pulls a gun on him, as it went against his aesthetic.
* WickedCultured: He's a movie and film buff due to his interest in special effects, to the point that the password for his computer is [[Film/TheThing1982 "JC'STheThing"]].
* YouHaveFailedMe: He ''wants'' to do this to Prowler for talking back to him, but he refrains from doing so to preserve his working relationship with All For One.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Recites this word-for-word to threaten All Might.
-->'''Mysterio:''' Beware All Might, for your days are numbered! So says… MYSTERIO!

[[folder:Clash]]
!!Clash
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #8: Super Hero School

The young leader of the Enforcers. She answers directly to Mysterio and utilizes the sound-based weaponry of [[https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Clayton_Cole_(Earth-616) Clayton Cole]] to strike down her foes. Although caring and almost sisterly to Boomerang, she's prone to childish outbursts, particularly when her bust size is brought up.
----
* ACupAngst: She's self-conscious about her bust size to point of attacking Vulture with a GroinAttack when he brings it up.
* BagOfHolding: Her belt contains numerous compartments that keep things as large as entire first aid kits in miniaturized form.
* BerserkButton: Vulture is on the receiving end of a GroinAttack from her when he brings up her "nonexistent tits". She's embarrassed by this, as she thought she put such petty insults behind her.
* BigSisterInstinct: She frets over her Boomerang and constantly tries to bring his self-esteem up. She also rushes to patch him up with a first aid kit after she learns he's been hiding his injuries.
* BrownNote: Her sonic weaponry allows her to unleash painful sound waves that can make people bleed from their eyes, ears, and nose before killing them.
* DownTheRabbitHole: It's implied that she wants to escape to Peter's universe, but not before shattering the status quo with the Enforcers first.
* JustFollowingOrders: She seems troubled by her murders, but justifies it to herself by saying that her victims just should have paid up like they were supposed to.
* GroinAttack: Gives one to Vulture for bringing up her bust size.
* TheLeader: Of the Enforcers.
* PerceptionFilter: One of her equipment's other uses is generating a zone of silence in a certain area that completely prevents sounds from escaping outside, allowing the Enforcers to work discreetly.
* ProfessionalKiller: She and the rest of the Enforcers are dispatched to dispose of anyone who fails to give Mysterio a cut of the profits they make from his equipment.
* {{Revenge}}: For some reason, she wants to lash out at the world for "rejecting" her.

A timid member of the Enforcers who utilizes the boomerangs once thrown by [[https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Frederick_Myers_(Earth-616) Frederick Myers]]. His loyalty to the Enforcers is second-to-none, but he constantly doubts himself and his value to the team.
----
* BattleBoomerang: As the newest incarnation of Boomerang, he throws a variety of these.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: He's timid and rarely speaks his mind, but according to Vulture, he went apeshit when someone insulted Clash and brutally murdered the one who did it. There's also the fact that he's a hitman for Mysterio trained to take down those with powerful equipment from Peter's universe.
* DemBones: His costume invokes this motif, with boomerangs arranged like ribs running down his jacket.
* ExtremeDoormat: He's terrified of being TheLoad and does his best not to be troublesome to the rest of the Enforcers, doing whatever Clash tells him to and not bringing up the gash running down his arm until Vulture spots it.
* HellBentForLeather: His costume decks him out in biker gear, concealing his face behind a helmet while covering from head to toe in dark leather.
* LooseLips: He has a bad habit of forgetting to use his teammates' {{Code Name}}s, referring to Clash as "Koha-" before stopping himself and Vulture as "Cho-".
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: His preferred weapons.
* ProfessionalKiller: He and the rest of the Enforcers are dispatched to dispose of anyone who fails to give Mysterio a cut of the profits they make from his equipment.

----
* {{Foil}}: To the original Vulture, Adrian Toomes. Adrian was a brilliant engineer who turned to villainy after his life's work is stolen, but soon began to revel in terrorizing New York. This Vulture is a street thug who was given his equipment by Mysterio, but still manages to have a good handle on the flight suit.
* JapaneseDelinquent: Seems to embody this, going on and on about his old gang in Tokyo and telling Boomerang to be proud of the gash he received as a "badge of honor".
* PoweredArmor: He wears a version of the original Vulture's flight suit, granting him flight and increased strength. Unfortunately, it seems to provide minimal protection, as Clash could easily GroinAttack him.
* ProfessionalKiller: He and rest of the Enforcers are dispatched to dispose of anyone who fails to give Mysterio a cut of the profits they make from his equipment.

* ConsummateProfessional: He reprimands Clash for letting petty insults about her bust size get to her head and admonishes Vulture for getting her riled up over a topic he knew she took offense to. He seems to be in charge of keeping the others in line.
* {{Foil}}: To the original Shocker. While Herman is something of a ButtMonkey no one [[NoRespectGuy takes seriously]], this Shocker is a BadassInANiceSuit who is introduced right after brutally murdering someone without any reaction.
* LargeAndInCharge: Downplayed. He defers to Clash even though he towers over her, but he seems to be her right-hand and ensures that everyone remains on task.

A gang of aspiring Villains riding around on rocket-powered vehicles. They're among the many upshot Villains who are taking inspiration from Marvel rogues with the tech they acquired from Mysterio. They're tearing up the streets of Musutafu while Izuku is busy training to get into U.A.
----
* CoolBoard: The leader, Number One, has a rocket-powered skateboard.
* {{Fingore}}: Number One's hand is left a broken and bloody mess after Peter tricks him into ramming it into a concrete wall.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Number One's reckless use of the rocket-powered equipment he used to assault and steal from others ends up horribly mangling his hand when he punches a concrete wall at 60 miles an hour.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Number One gloats when he brutally punches out a police officer while riding his rocket-powered skateboard. While he's initially able to get the drop on Peter when he was blinded by One's visor, Peter manages to goad One into trying to trying to RocketPunch him while Peter stood next to a wall, only to jump away at the last second, letting Newton's Third Law mangle the villain's hand.
* LegacyCharacter: They're the unofficial successors to the original Rocket Racer, who began as a D-list supervillain before becoming a D-list superhero and retiring altogether.
* MythologyGag: They hide their identities by wearing masks of popular Heroes, including Ingenium, All Might, Endeavor, and Spider-Man. [[Film/SpiderManHomecoming Then Peter arrives to stop them]] while quipping, "You lost weight, All Might!"
* RedIsViolent: A team of six red-wearing hellions who happily wreak havoc in Musutafu, causing grievous injury and looting whoever they can. Himiko is this epitome of this, slashing random people for no reason just to see their blood. The scooter-riding members also have rocket launchers built into their gear that fragment into shrapnel, heavily injuring Manual and several bystanders despite his best efforts.
* RocketPunch: Invoked. Number One has rockets on his gloves that he uses to quickly close the distance on an officer and punch him hard enough to rip open the skin on his face and knock out several teeth. He shouts, "Aw yeah! How’s that for a Rocket Punch?!" while speeding away.
* RollerbladeGood: Himiko and two other guys roll around on four-wheeled roller skates.
* StuffedIntoATrashcan: Peter tosses the Gang Orca Rocket Racer into a dumpster with a web before tying down the lid with another web.

The infamous "Hero Killer" who targets Heroes he deems to be "Fakes" in hopes of creating a world where there are only purely selfless heroes like All Might.
----
* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: He appears as early as Issue 6, a day before Izuku takes the U.A. Entrance Exam. In the manga, he doesn't appear in-person until after the Sports Festival.
* AxCrazy: He's obsessed with culling Heroes he deems to be "Fakes" and wants to murder as many as he can so more can be like All Might.
* BerserkButton: Hypocrisy, or more specifically, anyone who falls under a shade of gray outside of BlackAndWhiteMorality. He dismisses Mount Lady genuine feelings of remorse for being unable to stop the Prowler as an attempt to save face (albeit, she was trying to improve her image) and throws a knife at the TV out of disgust. He proceeds to stomp and crush on the miniature TV for a while until he calms down.

* KnifeNut: He carries knives constantly, including one he uses to destroy a small television set.
* SerialKiller: Stain targets any Hero he deems a "Fake", meaning anyone who isn't as selfless and altruistic as All Might. Given how [[TheParagon lofty that goal is]], it's rare for Stain to approve of anyone.
* YouWillBeSpared: He decides that Izuku won't be on his hit list after watching him run at the Prowler on television. Peter on the other hand...

!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #1: What If?
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mha_inko_midoriya.png]]

Izuku's mom. Inko has spent the most time raising him while her husband works overseas in the United States to send money home.
----
* AdultFear:
** She had no idea how to support Izuku after finding out he was Quirkless and put on weight from the stress of watching him grow up tormented from having what amounts to a genetic disability totally outside of his or her control.
** Her dutiful and responsible son suddenly ditches school after getting the superpowers he wanted his whole life and doesn't come home on time. After he doesn't respond to her worried texts, she sees him run straight up to a highly dangerous Villain and known murderer on live television when the Pro Heroes fail to protect him. It's little wonder she's a bawling mess once he gets home.
** She's aware of her son's new fame as the "Prowler Kid" and is worried that people might try to exploit him for it.
** She knows her son is lying to her about his nightly excursions and wonders what he's doing when she isn't around, especially when his fame could be dragging him into less savory hobbies.
** After her son gets into the school of his dreams, she balks when [[spoiler:he's interrogated by the principal about the true nature of his abilities as if he's some kind of criminal.]] She goes so far as to threaten to pull him out and tells off U.A. for doing this to him.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: She constantly frets over Izuku's well-being and was apparently a FormerTeenRebel. Izuku quickly decides that the less he knows about his parents' younger years the better.
* DotingParent:
** She clearly care for Izuku's well-being. They cry OcularGushers after he wakes up from his short coma and Hisashi rushes to Japan after learning of his son's condition. Izuku loves his parents and calls Inko the best mom in the world.
** Inko worries for Izuku when she got a call from the school saying that he ditched class. Rather than reprimand him for it, her first texts asked "where are you?", "please call me?", and "are you heading home?"
** Once she learns about his "Quirk", she fully supports his ambitions to become a Hero. Rather than reprimand him for staying up all night to study, she gently reminds him to go back to bed and drapes some covers over him to keep him from getting a cold.
** She avoids MyBelovedSmother by trusting Izuku to make his own decisions, but can't help but worry if he's going through a teen rebel phase when he starts lying to her about where he's going after school. [[spoiler:When she learns he's been keeping her LockedOutOfTheLoop, she reprimands Nezu for interrogating him and simply asks Izuku not to lie to her anymore.]]
* {{Foil}}: To Mitsuki. Inko is a timid and highly emotional woman who is ever-present in Izuku's life. He holds her in the highest esteem and the two are extremely close. The fiery Mitsuki is constantly away at work and never really got to know her son. He's constantly disrespecting her and she only manages to keep him in line through shouting and violence.
* FormerlyFit: She used to be much slimmer, but the stress of raising Izuku made her gain weight.
* FormerTeenRebel: She admits that she did some wild things growing up as a teenager. This is why she worries Izuku is going out to smoke or meet a girl when he lies to her about where he goes at night. [[spoiler:When Nezu asks if her husband broke the law, she tells him no, as ''she'' was the rule-bender when they were younger.]]
* {{Housewife}}: She's left to care for her son while her husband works overseas.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Izuku doesn't let her in on his training sessions with Peter or the true nature of his powers to keep her from fretting over him. When she catches him snoring into an open-faced textbook, she wonders why he's reading stuff that clearly isn't high-school level. [[spoiler:She's stunned when she learns that his powers don't come from a Quirk and feels terrible that her son was afraid that she'd call him a freak because of them.]]
* MindOverMatter: Her Quirks lets her move small objects.
* OcularGushers: Inko sobs uncontrollably once Izuku wakes up from his coma. His attempts to help her calm down only make him cry too.
* ParentsAsPeople: She failed to properly support Izuku after he learned that he was Quirkless, simply hugging him and proclaiming how sorry she was when all he wanted was for someone to tell him that he could be a Hero. After learning about his new powers, she wholeheartedly supports his goal to make up for her past failings.
* PostStressOvereating: She started overeating from the stress of raising Izuku after he learned he was Quirkless and not knowing what to do to make him feel better.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: Inko and Izuku are both highly emotional, timid, and caring. Their OcularGushers when they're happy or sad are a sight to behold.
* StunnedSilence: She doesn't know what to say when Izuku demonstrates his WallCrawling powers to her for the first time. After several agonizing minutes of silence, she decides on crying TearsOfJoy.
* TenderTears: She's sobbing when she sees Izuku rushing straight at a known murderer on television and is still crying by the time he gets home.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Inko is a beautiful woman even after she began gaining weight. She's kind, mature, responsible, and doting on her son. While she doesn't have the dark hair associated with the trope, her hair is dark green.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is dark green like her son.
* YourFavorite: She promises to make her son katsudon once he gets back from the hospital. His newfound appetite makes him devour several bowls of it before he's satisfied.

----
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Izuku is mortified by Hisashi's [[RummageSaleReject casual wardrobe]] and decides that the less he knows about Hisashi's college years the better.
* AscendedExtra: Downplayed. Hisashi actually comes to visit his son in the hospital after the spider bite. He cares enough to bring Izuku sweets, comic book, and movies while making sure he's okay, but Hisashi has to return overseas not long afterward. Izuku also makes mentions of his dad, which he ''never'' does in the manga.
* RummageSaleReject: His casual clothes include a pink shirt with "JUICY" written across the back and sweatpants that have "BIG BOY" written on it.
* PunnyName: His name is a pun off, "hisashiburi", or "it's been a while", which is customary to say after you haven't seen someone in a long time. Sure enough, Hisashi is rarely home and is mostly mentioned in passing.

The doctor who diagnosed Izuku as Quirkless, changing his life forever. They meet again when Izuku is bitten by a spider, overseeing his treatment and admonishing him for continuing to chase his impossible dream.
----
* BearerOfBadNews: He's the one who told Izuku that he's Quirkless.
* BrutalHonesty: Dr. Tsubasa tells a four-year-old Izuku in no uncertain terms that he should give up his dream of becoming a Hero. When they meet again ten years later, Tsubasa admonishes Izuku for continuing to cling to that dream and says he should be looking to become a police officer instead.
-->'''Tsubasa:''' You should probably give up, already.
* ContrivedCoincidence: The doctor who crushed Izuku's hopes and dreams by telling him he was Quirkless and that he should give up on being a Hero happens to be treating him for his spider bite. [[spoiler:It's implied that this ''wasn't'' a coincidence when it's revealed that he's been keeping samples of Izuku's blood.]]
* LabcoatOfScienceAndMedicine: Wears one and is a doctor.
* LennonSpecs: Wears dark green ones with brown frames.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: It turns out that [[spoiler:he secretly kept several vials of Izuku's blood and plans to "change the world" with it.]]
* SmallRoleBigImpact: His diagnosis changed Izuku's life up to the point that he was bitten by the spider.
* YouAreACreditToYourRace: Dr. Tsubasa is impressed that the immune system of a Quirkless kid like Izuku managed to weather out the spider's venom with no adverse long-term effects. Izuku is naturally hurt by yet another reminder of his Quirklessness, but [[InnocentlyInsensitive Tsubasa doesn't seem to notice]]. Given his BrutalHonesty to Izuku ten years ago and repeated insistence that Izuku find other work, he likely doesn't care.

!!Mitsuki Bakugou
!!!'''Debut:''' Issue #5: Learning Curve

Bakugou's mom. Like her son, she's fiery, strong, and confident with zero tolerance for people who disrespect her. But she wants the best for him and is dismayed to learn how sour his attitude has gotten while she was busy at work.
----
* AbusiveParents: She tends to discipline her son with brute force and massive earfuls, neither of which have particularly endeared her to him.
* AdaptationExpansion: Mitsuki is given a backstory here: born into a Burakumin family in a rough neighborhood and wanted out so her child could live free of the stigma that comes with it.
* AlmightyMom: Her word is law in the Bakugou household and Izuku notes that Katsuki wouldn't act up when they hung out at his house while she was around. But her influence seems to have waned by the time he's a teenager, as he gets into shouting contests with her and frequently disrespects her, not that her tendency for corporal punishment helps matters.
* DistaffCounterpart: Appearance-wise, she's a female and older version of her son, complete with fiery temper.
* DoesntKnowTheirOwnChild: She spends long hours at work and doesn't pry into Katsuki's social life. Because of this, she doesn't understand just how poor his attitude has gotten or that he has no real friends until she speaks with Izuku for the first time in a decade.
* DopeSlap: Often gives these to Katsuki whenever he's acting up.
* EmbarrassingTattoo: She has an old tattoo that she got when she was 16 as part of a RiteOfPassage in the rough neighborhood she grew up in. She tends to keep it covered up due to the stigma against them in Japan and is surprised when Izuku says it looks good on her.
* {{Foil}}:
** To Inko. Inko is a timid and highly emotional woman who is ever-present in Izuku's life. He holds her in the highest esteem and the two are extremely close. The fiery Mitsuki is constantly away at work and never really got to know her son. He's constantly disrespecting her and only manages to keep him in line through shouting and violence.
** To Katsuki. While they both possess similar temperaments, Katsuki was born into a stable, upper middle-class household thanks to his mom's efforts and grew up with constant adoration and praise for his talents. Mitsuki was born into a Burakumin family, growing up in a rough neighborhood and being targeted for discrimination until she clawed her way out. She also admits her mistakes and is friendly to those she cares about, compared to her son's tendency to backpedal into old habits when his ego is bruised.
* FormerTeenRebel: She implies that she was part of some rough gangs growing up, as indicated by her tribal tattoo, which she finds more embarrassing than anything.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Downplayed. She's got sandy blond hair like her son, but is a warm and friendly woman who happily offers Izuku a ride home and worked hard to secure a good life for her family. However, she has a nasty temper and a tendency to get physical when her son is acting up.
* OppositesAttract: Mitsuki is a fiery and strong woman but calls her husband Masaru a wet blanket by comparison.
* ParentalNeglect: Mitsuki worked hard to earn a better life for herself and her family, but her busy work life left little time for her to spend time with or get to know her son. Because of this, she's oblivious to how badly Izuku's and her son's relationship has deteriorated and believes they're still close until Katsuki throws a fit in the car.
* ParentsAsPeople: She deeply loves her son and husband, but is so busy at work that she isn't as much of an influence in her son's life as she wants to be. She's dismayed at how she let him become such a domineering {{Jerkass}} and pleads with Izuku to not give up on him. Her discipline usually consists on yanking on her son's ear and shouting at him, which contributes to his lack of respect for her.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Zigzagged. She's warm and friendly to Izuku and congratulates him on getting his Quirk and for his bravery during the Prowler incident. But she tends to get physical during her spats with her own son.
* SelfMadeWoman: She worked hard to build up the financial and social clout necessary to shed the stigma of being born into a Burakumin family because she didn't want her child to grow up with the same prejudice she faced.
* StacysMom: The first thing that strikes Izuku after seeing her for the first time in years is how stunningly beautiful she is.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Katsuki is practically a gender-flipped carbon copy of her.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: She gives one to Katsuki after she finds out just how horrible and petty he is to Izuku.
-->'''Mitsuki:''' So that's it, huh? You got pissed that something didn't go the way you thought it did and decided to beat up someone for it? Like a spoiled little brat?

They still clearly care for one another and she's totally understanding when he has to ditch their monthly meeting at a fancy restaurant to go investigate a strange pillar of light in New York City.

----
* EasilyForgiven: Defied. Due to his actions and mishandling of the Superhuman Registration Act, Tony has burnt a lot of bridges with his friends and colleagues. It’s implied that the only reason he’s still on the Avengers is because of Steve Rogers and other superheroes like Alex make snide remarks to remind him that nothing is forgiven.
* InsufferableGenius: It’s explained that part of his reason for pushing the SHRA even when it was basically falling apart is because Tony has the innate belief that he’s always right and he knows what’s best for the world. While his genius had aided him in being a superhero and a playboy philanthropist, when he applied it to politics and tried to impose his ideas onto his friends it just made him look like a jackass.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: After the events of Civil War, many of his associates have a continual desire to punch him in the face for actions that killed several of their friends. Alex Power bitterly brings up the possibility of the Mjölnir in New Mexico being a man-made copy because of the Thor clone Tony sicced on the Anti-Reg coalition.

* CanonImmigrant: In-universe, Izuku mentions that he's surprised that Torunn exists in Peter's universe, as her only major appearance was in ''WesternAnimation/NextAvengersHeroesOfTomorrow''.
* ChildOfTwoWorlds: Torrun was born and raised in Asgard for a good portion of her early childhood. However, she was then left to be raised on Earth by Jane Foster until she was well into her teenage years. Because of this, Torunn has to act out what she believes is a ‘true’ Asgardian and speaks regular English instead of YeOldeButcheredEnglish by default.

* LightningBruiser: Having taken her father's place on the Avengers, she's implied to be incredibly powerful in her own right and has lightning coursing through her veins.
* NoTrueScotsman: She's terrified of this and tires her best to be a true Asgardian, speaking in YeOldeButcheredEnglish, referring to Earth as Midgard, and trying (and failing) to properly utilize her godly powers. Her self-esteem plummeted from the pressure of being Thor's daughter.
* ParentalAbandonment: She was left in the care of Jane Foster while Thor and Sif went off to fight and die Ragnarok to save the universe.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: She tries to project the image of this to cover up her deep insecurities about losing her parents and living up to their legacy.

But before he took up any throne, Conan was tasked to slay a sorcerer called Druig at the behest of a nobleman called [[ComicBook/TheEternals Zuras]]
----
* AntiHero: While Conan does have a sense of honor and the sight of innocents being harmed angers him, he is still a barbarian who kills for riches and fulfilling his base desires.
* BarbarianHero: The archetypal example.
* CanonWelding: Conan’s place in the story is due to how Conan and the Hyborian Age are placed into Marvel’s history in the licensed comics.
* DoesNotLikeMagic: Due to sorcerers usually trying to kill him and the mysterious nature of their craft, Conan has taken to instantly disliking sorcerers and their art.
* GeniusBruiser: Conan, despite looking like a brainless barbarian, does have a good head on his shoulder and a firm understanding of tactics. He distracts the Deviants by throwing a rock so he could strike from behind, and tries to focus on the slower more powerful one so it wouldn’t take advantage of his exhausted state should he focus on its quicker companion.
* GenreSavvy: Due to his many encounters with sorcerers over his adventures, Conan has picked up on their tendency to have a flair for the dramatic. As such, he decides climbing the highest tower of the castle would be the easiest way for him and Elric to find Druig.
* MadeOfIron: Conan is able to take on two Deviants and despite being injured by one who’s tentacles are described as a whip, he continues to fight and make his enemies pay for spilling his blood.

* EveryoneIsRelated: It turns out that her mother’s name is Mary Shield-Brock, and she has an uncle named Carl and a cousin named Eddie. Meaning that Melissa is Eddie Brock’s cousin in this universe.
* FailedASpotCheck: PlayedForDrama. In her rush to make it to a raid on one of the Inner Demons' hideouts, she [[spoiler:neglects to insert the last two screws to the electric eel cage, which allows the glass cage to shatter and electrocute Max.]]
* FamedInStory: She publicized her new powers after discovering their origins and developing her own web-fluid, becoming a sensation overnight as the only known Quirkless person to have gained powers from a spider bite. The Izuku of her universe admires her from the get-go for this as a formerly Quirkless person himself.
* {{Foil}}:
** To Izuku, as they both were formerly Quirkless teens that had spider powers thrust on them by a twist of fate. But while Izuku’s spider was created through inter-dimensional forces, [[ILoveNuclearPower her spider received a fatal dose of radiation]]. While Izuku is being taught by Peter Parker due to his inexperience with the powers, Melissa had no teacher and adjusted to them fairly quickly. While Izuku is basically a normal teenager just starting high school, Melissa is currently enrolled in college and is a pseudo-celebrity due to the strange origins of her powers.
** To Martin Li. They're both young Heroes who use their equipment to swing around and outmaneuver their foes. Martin is highly successful, arrogant, and laser-focused on taking down the Demons. Melissa is new to the industry, constantly tied up in her many responsibilities, and is far more down-to-earth.
* GeniusBruiser: She designed most of her own tech with her father's help and has all of the standard spider powers. This includes nanotechnology that she used to make her suit, her heavily customized sports car, and various other gadgets. Her penthouse has a laboratory in it and she's always looking for ways to become more efficient.
* ItsAllMyFault: Has this along with MyGodWhatHaveIDone when she realizes that [[spoiler:she neglected to insert the last two screws to the cage in her rush to meet up with Martin, which caused the Electro System to malfunction and electrocute Max.]]
-->'''Melissa:''' Oh, Jesus… Oh, God no. [[spoiler:Max… Max I..]]
* {{Meganekko}}: She used to be this before the spider bite.
* MySuitIsAlsoSuper: The Leopardon System she developed allows her to change her clothes on the fly via a TransformationSequence and voice command. Her costume looks like spandex, but is actually a form of armor that can protect her from low-caliber firearms and knives. The mask comes with an HUD much like Peter's and even has spider legs that come out of the back in case she's caught off-guard.
* NeverGetsFat: She relishes how her spider-enhanced teenage metabolism lets her dig into donuts and other sweets for breakfast without worrying about getting putting on weight.
* NiceGirl: Melissa sympathizes with Toomes, as he was screwed over by his business partner, and plans to send him a large portion of his flying apparatus’ profits when it’s commercialized even though he tried to kill her. Like Izuku, she got into the business to help others.
* ProjectileWebbing: She takes this one step further than the average Spider-Person by equipping her CoolCar with web cannons.
* ScienceHero: She and her dad are scientists and inventors, having made most of Melissa's equipment themselves. Even though she's an active Hero, she still devotes a great deal of time to scientific research and has a lab in her penthouse.
* SuperStrength: She easily lifts the hulking Crusher Hogan as if he was a basketball and has to hold back when dealing with the Demons so she doesn't break their necks.
* TripleShifter: Deconstructed. She has to balance her schoolwork, social life, her internship with Martin, and her research all at the same time. She has so many responsibilities that they frequently overlap and stretch her thin, which ends in tragedy when [[spoiler:she neglects to place two screws into the electric eel cage and properly install the rest, allowing the cage to shatter and electrocuting Max.]]
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: She unknowingly purchases Toomes' equipment from Bestman without knowing who the original inventor is, sending Toomes on a murderous rampage. Later on, in her rush to meet up with Martin, she [[spoiler:neglects to insert two screws into the electric eel cage. This allows it to shatter and douse Max with electrically charged water that is implied to be turning him into Electro.]]
* WallCrawling: She sticks to the cage of the ring while dangling Crusher from the top of it.
* WillfullyWeak: She has to hold back while fighting others, as her super-strong blows can easily break people's necks.

Melissa's friend and the son of Norman Osborn, CEO of Oscorp. An aspiring rocker, he's the leader of "The Hobgoblins". Charming and carefree, he chafes under his father's insistence that he inherit the family business.
----
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In contrast to his usually nebbish and nerdy looks, Harry is described as handsome and well-built on top of being a veritable ChickMagnet who manages to get Melissa flustered over him.
* BrilliantButLazy: Melissa notes that he isn't necessarily bad at chemistry. He can get the jargon and mechanics just fine. He just has little interest in studying it.
* TheCasanova: He's constantly making passes at cute girls he meets, including Melissa, which has gotten him in hot water on more than one occasion.
* ChickMagnet: Girls swoon over him for his rock star attitude, good looks, and winning smile.

CEO of Oscorp and noted expert of various fields of science including nanotechnology. While he is a successful businessman and scientist, Norman seeks to bring his company to greater heights and sees Harry’s rocker aspirations as a danger to the legacy of the Osborns.
----
* ColorMotifs: Wears a green tie, which hints at his connection to the fact that most Norman Osborns in the series become the Green Goblin sooner or later.
* EvilRedhead: While he hasn’t done anything evil, he is noticeably swarmy and turns his nose at the bodega that’s very low class to his standards.
* [[LikeASonToMe Like A Daughter To Me]]: Norman enjoys talking with Melissa about science and praises Melissa’s advancements with her career. He even offers her a place in Oscorp so she can unlock her true potential. Harry lampshades this saying that the only thing likely stopping Norman from just adopting her is the fact David Shield is still in the picture.

!!Martin Li - Wraith
!!!'''Debut:''' Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

A rising Hero based in New York, Martin is Melissa's mentor and boss, teaching her the ins and outs of Hero work as his sidekick. Young, brash, and arrogant, his juvenile behavior and love of the limelight belie his incredible passion for helping others as well as his vehement grudge against the Inner Demons.
----
* TheAce: He's a GradeSkipper who became a Hero at 16, runs his highly successful and praised F.E.A.S.T. shelters, and is fairly wealthy through his own investments.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Most versions of Martin are supervillains and the heads of the Inner Demons he's trying to stop. Here he's a successful teenaged superhero.
* {{Adorkable}}: His stupid-looking Hero costume, almost relentless energy and cheer, and his constant attempts to puff up his ego make him as endearing as he is annoying.
* AgeLift: Most versions of Martin are grown men, but here he's a teenager around Melissa's age.
* AttentionWhore: He loves to bask in the limelight and frequently shows off just because. After foiling a bank robbery, he immediately goes around to pass out his own autographs.
* BeneathTheMask: At least part of Martin's ego is a facade he's using to hide his deep-seated insecurities and grief over losing his parents to Mr. Negative.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: The arrogant, hyperactive teenager happens to be a genius Hero, philanthropist, and businessman.
* ClothingCombat: His Quirk allows him to telekinetically manipulate the elastic bands he wears and make them stronger than steel, deflecting the weapons of the Demons and tossing them around with ease. He can also use this for transportation and to quickly reposition himself by slingshotting himself around.
* CompositeCharacter: Martin has the backstory of his VideoGame/SpiderManPS4 counterpart, but his superheroic alter ego is based on the anti-villainous identity used by Yuri Watanabe. Personality-wise, he's an {{Expy}} of arrogant {{Stock Shonen Hero}}es like [[Manga/SoulEater Black☆Star]].
* DecompositeCharacter: Martin Li and Mr. Negative are usually one-in-the-same, with the latter being Martin's SuperpoweredEvilSide. Here, they're separate people.
* DoesntLikeGuns: Martin sneers at those who rely on guns to fight, calling them cowards for not facing him with their bare hands. He actually praises a Demon for trying to take him on with an axe, before kicking him through a car.
* DynamicEntry: He makes his first on-screen appearance by kicking a Demon in the face with a flying kick after wrapping him up in cloth.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Martin is introduced when he calls Melissa to tell her to meet him at a bank robbery so some of his awesomeness will rub off on her. He spends his first physical appearance rocketing into the fray while shouting louder than an entire firefight and kicking the asses of the Demons without a care in the world.
* {{Foil}}:
** To Melissa. They're both young Heroes who use their equipment to swing around and outmaneuver their foes. Martin is highly successful, arrogant, and laser-focused on taking down the Demons. Melissa is new to the industry, constantly tied up in her many responsibilities, and is far more down-to-earth.
** To Bakugou. They're both {{Insufferable Genius}}es with enormous egos and a constant drive to succeed. But while Bakugou grew up in a stable household and placed in an echo chamber of praise, Martin lost his parents when he was young and clawed his way up by himself. Their ideologies are also opposed: Bakugou wants to be a Hero to prove how strong he is, while Martin seeks to do good to balance out all of the bad in the world.
* GenkiGuy: He's described as perpetually hyper, yelling rather than speaking while calling Melissa.
-->'''Martin:''' ''[jumping into the driver's seat of the Spider-Mobile]'' Come on, Melissa! Time's a-wastin! YAHOO!
* TheGift: Martin is talented at pretty much everything. He skipped several grades to become a Hero at 16 (for references, the next youngest known Hero is Hawks, who became at a Hero at 18), runs a successful series of homeless shelters, and possesses a small fortune thanks to his own investments.
* GradeSkipper: He skipped ahead in school thanks to his natural talent and constant drive to improve himself, becoming a Pro Hero at 16 when most others are still starting out.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: His Quirk seems to be the ability to manipulate the cloth bands he wears as a Hero and make them stronger than steel. While not as obviously destructive as SuperStrength or HavingABlast, he decimates a force of Demons with swords, guns, and axes almost entirely on his own with ease.
* HiddenDepths: On the surface, he's a boisterous, attention-loving media hog who constantly shows off and hands out his own merchandise. But he's devoted to helping others any way he can and shows a noticeably softer side to himself while speaking to Melissa in his office, thanking her for showing up and helping him out. His cheer and arrogance gives way to violent aggression and irritability whenever he's interrogating the Demons, showing that he's still grieving the loss of his parents.
* IllBoy: He was diagnosed with a rare disease as a child, prompting his parents to immigrate to the U.S. in hopes of having him undergo an experimental procedure to cure him. It seems to have worked, as he's a hyperactive and healthy teenager in the present day.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Martin puffs himself up and stokes his own ego out of fear of being considered weak, as Mr. Negative taunted him for being sickly and failing to stop his parent's murder.
* InsufferableGenius: He considers himself the greatest Hero in the world and tends to walk around like he owns the place, constantly showing off and handing out his own autographed photos. Even other Heroes find it difficult to like him and Melissa only puts up with him because of all the things he can teach her. But he backs up his ego with his incredible talent as both a Hero and a businessman.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: Tempted to do this to a member of the Demons taunting him until Melissa stops him.
* JustAKid: Martin exploited this while dealing with much older businessmen in the corporate sphere, allowing them to underestimate him as a knuckleheaded kid before walking away with the better deal.
* LethalChef: In a non-canon July 4th omake, Martin is sulking in the corner while his guests pick at the charred hamburgers and hot dogs, implying that he's the one to blame.
* LightningBruiser: He's fast enough to dodge gunfire and strong enough to kick people through windows with ease. He can also use his Quirk to make the cloth he wears harder than steel, easily deflecting a sword empowered by Mr. Negative.
* MenCantKeepHouse: Melissa speculates that Martin's office is only clean because Asuga cleans up after him or makes him do it himself.
* NiceGuy: Underneath his arrogant veneer is a good kid wholly devoted to helping others as a Hero and a philanthropist. He's cheerful and affectionate to those close to him or under his care at F.E.A.S.T. and considers it "life or death" to be on time for the birthday party of a young girl whose family was just evicted from their apartment.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: His cheer and constant good will towards the downtrodden makes it all the more terrifying when he becomes irritable and vengeful after a raid on a suspected Demon hideout.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He's [=5'6''=] not including his two-inches of spiked up ShonenHair and regularly kicks the asses of grown men.
* {{Revenge}}: Martin shows a much darker side of himself whenever the Inner Demons are involved. He's determined to flush out Mr. Negative and bring him to justice by any means necessary, even if it means roughing up helpless Demons whose asses he's already kicked.
* RummageSaleReject: His Hero costume consists of a purple t-shirt with skulls on it, numerous elastic bands and scarves wrapped around his arms, knees, and face, a pair of {{Zipperiffic}} cargo shorts, and "shinobi" sandals straight out of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. The narration even calls him a fashion disaster.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: He has several of these wrapped around his face as a mask while working as Wraith. He unfurls them when he needs extra bands to restrain others, wearing them more like regular scarves from then on.
* ShonenHair: His hair is slicked back and spiky, adding two inches to his height. The narration makes a point of describing it as ridiculously greasy, which shows that it's an intentional stylistic choice on Martin's part.
* SmarterThanYouLook: His juvenile behavior and appearance tends to throw people off when they first meet him, as he's known to be a genius and a wealthy businessman. He weaponizes this against his business rivals, who tend to underestimate him in the boardroom until it's too late.
-->It turns out when one side thinks the other is or is representing a loudmouthed idiot, the 'idiot' can walk away with the better deal.
* SoleSurvivor: He's the only survivor of the attack that killed his parents and all of the doctors and researchers treating him.
* TeenGenius: He's around eighteen years old and a Pro Hero for years when most people are just starting out on top of being a successful businessman.
* YouKilledMyFather: Martin's parents were murdered by Mr. Negative and Martin is determined to get even with him.

Martin's personal assistant and ChildhoodFriend. She handles the day-to-day tasks of running F.E.A.S.T. while he's running off to be a Hero and promoting his work.
----
* BeleagueredAssistant: Melissa wonders how a calm and professional girl like her could end up working for someone as hyperactive and brash as Martin. She's implied to be the one who cleans up after his messes and badgers him into actually cleaning up his own office. By the time Melissa and Martin return from a day of beating up Demons, she's clearly exhausted from managing everything on her own.
* HypercompetentSidekick: She handles most of the "boring stuff" for Martin, including making sure F.E.A.S.T. is running smoothly, managing his finances, and representing him in corporate affairs in his absence. She also handles parties and was forced to learn how to bake a Dominican cake in a single day.

The elusive leader of the Demons. He murdered Martin's parents years ago, which spurred Martin's desire to become a Hero both to counteract Negative's evil and to avenge everyone he's killed.
----
* AdaptationOriginConnection: Zigzagged. He apparently has a bone to pick with Norman Osborn as in ''VideoGame/SpiderManPS4'', prompting him to attack the lab where Martin was getting treated and killing everyone inside. However, unlike the game, no reason is given for this grudge.
* DecompositeCharacter: Martin Li and Mr. Negative are usually one-in-the-same, with the latter being Martin's SuperpoweredEvilSide. Here, they're separate people.
* TheGhost: The only one who's ever seen him is Martin, having somehow escaped detection at every turn. Negative's subordinates constantly allude to him as their master, but no one seems to know what he looks like aside from the description Martin gave the police.
* YinYangBomb: He seems to be able to charge his subordinates' weapons with white and blank energy, creating waves of destruction with every swing. However, they don't seem to be powerful enough to cut through the cloth enhanced by Martin's Quirk.

!!!'''Debut:''' Sidestory: Marvels Academia

Peter is a Quirkless teenager who received amazing powers after being bitten by a radioactive spider. He attends Xavier Academy, the most prestigious Hero school in America. Despite his admission, he didn't bother trying to stop a bank robber being chased by Daredevil, a decision he comes to regret when that same robber killed his Uncle Ben.
----
* AffectionateNickname: He's rarely called "Peter" and most of his friends call him "Petey" and "Pete".
* AlliterativeName: Peter Parker. Enough said.
* BrainyBrunette: A chemical engineering genius and brown-haired.
* ComboPlatterPowers: He presumably has all the proportionate abilities of a spider, like most of the other Spiders in the multiverse.
* CompositeCharacter: He idolizes Tony Stark in the same vein as his [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU counterpart]], but his overall personality takes cues from the original Lee-Ditko era of Spider-Man and ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan''.
* {{Foil}}:
** To Izuku, both in canon and in the main story. Both spent years being Quirkless and raised by a loving family. Both Izuku and Peter were bullied relentlessly for their nerdy habits and Quirklessness by the resident bully while their peers either laughed or looked the other way. And in the case of the main story's Izuku, both were bitten by a spider that granted them amazing powers. But while Izuku saw it as a sign to chase his dream to become a Hero, Peter saw it as a way to make money for his aunt and uncle. While Izuku was mentored by an experienced Hero, Peter had no mentor and aside from his lessons at the Xavier Academy learned everything on his own. While Izuku did, for a time, revel in his powers he felt terrible about the implications. In contrast, Peter went through a power trip and saw it as an opportunity to not take crap from anybody, callously ignoring a criminal he could've stopped with minimal effort which leads to his uncle's death. Izuku wanted to be a Hero from the beginning while Peter had no real desire to be a true Hero until he learned "With great power, there must also come great responsibility".
** To his older counterpart. While the Peter of Earth 2018.562 has a chip on his shoulder and can be a jerk even to his friends, the main story's Peter is older and extremely approachable both in and out of the mask.
** To Uraraka. Both of them became a Hero not out of an innate desire to do good, but to make money for their financially troubled families. But while Uraraka is still willing to do her best to be a great Hero, Peter initially had no desire to do anything really heroic and only later learned that he must do his best to live up to the ideals.
* GeniusBruiser: This ''is'' Peter Parker. He built his web-shooters from scratch without any help and was always known as the resident science nerd before getting bitten by the spider.

* HeroWorshipper: He's a huge fan of Tony Stark, America's greatest Hero. The thought of meeting him in person is enough to make him pass out from glee.

-->'''Peter:''' Oh god... If I had stopped him then, If I... I didn't and now Uncle Ben... He's dead because of me...!\\
All my fault... all my fault...
* JerkassHasAPoint: Daredevil chastises Peter for not trying to stop the bank robber. While America's views on Quirk laws are unknown, Peter has a point that he's only a student and therefore a civilian who shouldn't be trying to stop crime himself yet. If he lived in Japan, he would have certainly gotten arrested for it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's abrasive and constantly makes snipes and jabs at everyone, even his close friends. He's especially cold towards Flash and quickly puts on a scowl around him. But underneath it all, this is still Peter Parker, and he's an aspiring Hero all the same.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Attending Xavier Academy didn't diminish Peter's admiration for Tony Stark in the slightest and he faints from sheer excitement when he learns that Tony is chaperoning their school trip.
* LikesOlderWomen: He has a crush on Betty Brant, an adult woman and a secretary at Xavier Academy, sporting a LuminescentBlush while talking to her.
* NerdGlasses: He's described as having big, round glasses before the spider bite corrected his vision.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: He decided to become a Hero not out of a desire to do good, but because the job pays well and he wants to support his aunt and uncle. After Ben's death, Peter decides to take the job more seriously and become a "true Hero" who Ben would be proud of.
* ProjectileWebbing: Web-shooters are a Spider-Man's staple.
* SadClown: Underneath his constant jokes and insults is a boy beaten down by society and haunted by the consequences of his negligence.
* SmugSuper: Wanda describes him as "cocky... oh so cocky" and on a power trip after gaining his abilities.
* SuperReflexes: He catches Wanda with one hand and all the books she was carrying with the other when they first meet.
* VitriolicBestBuds: He and Pietro make constant jabs at each other but always laugh it off in the end.
* WorkingClassHero: His aunt and uncle always had trouble making ends meet, and things only got worse after Ben died. Peter initially declines to join his class on their field trip to U.A. because he thought it too expensive for May to afford.
* WhenHeSmiles: He laughs and gives an honest, unvarnished smile while telling the others that he's going on the trip after all. Wanda wishes she'd see that face more.

!!Katsuki Bakugou - Venom
!!!'''Debut:''' Sidestory: Let the Devil In

Once the star student of Aldera Junior High, Katsuki Bakugou seemed destined to attend U.A. High School and become a top-ranking Hero. But with his talents came hubris. After he was caught smoking and drinking after school, he flew into a rage and brutally beat his longtime victim, Izuku Midoriya, in broad daylight, dooming Katsuki's chances of ever attending U.A. His washed out life changes after he stumbles across a crashed spaceship on a nightly walk to clear his head and bonds with the alien passenger inside, the symbiote named Venom.
----
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: This version of Bakugou has Eddie Brock's unfortunate tendency to never take responsibility for his own mistakes, blaming Izuku for ruining his life when it was his own actions that crushed his aspirations. It's especially noticeable when compared to his mainstream counterpart, who feels Peter Parker levels of responsibility when [[spoiler:All Might exhausts the last of his power on the mission to rescue him.]]
* AntiHero: He's a self-entitled prick who wants nothing more than to beat the crap out of the person he blames for his own problems. He's menacing, has little regard for property damage, never takes responsibility for his own mistakes, and is a thoroughly unpleasant person to be around. That said, he puts his life on the line repeatedly out of a genuine desire to save people and stop Carnage.
* BerserkButton: Anything involving Izuku will tape Bakugou's button down.
* BigEater: He eats and drinks a lot in order to keep Venom satiated, going through soda, chips, candy bars, and armfuls of convenience store food by the time he manages to hunt down Moonfish.
* BrutalHonesty: He tells the mourning Venom to get over Eddie already instead of constantly wailing and comparing the two of them. No matter how much Venom wants it, Eddie is dead and his new partner isn't. Venom doesn't take kindly to this at first, but admits that Bakugou is right in this case.
* CarFu: He uses a family's car as a shield against Moonfish before detonating it to finish the fight.
* ComboPlatterPowers: Thanks to being bonded with Venom, Bakugou has gained all the powers of Spider-Man along with his Quirk. He also has a pronounced HealingFactor that lets him shrug off puncture and slashing wounds and makes gratuitous use of combat tentacles.
* CompositeCharacter: Of Bakugou and Eddie Brock as seen in ''Film/Venom2018''. In addition to Bakugou's usual history, his washed out status and [[NeverMyFault inability to acknowledge his own faults]] are taken from Eddie.
* DarkIsNotEvil: His costume is black-and-white as per Venom standard, but he fights out of a genuine desire to help people and stop psychopaths like Carnage. Unfortunately, he's terrible at conveying this.
* DestructiveSavior: He does a good job of taking down Carnage's followers one-by-one. He doesn't do a good job of keeping the surrounding buildings intact, between his explosions and the collateral of having two [[LightningBruiser symbiote wearers]] clash.
* DontYouDarePityMe: He's outraged when Izuku brings him up during an interview as "a friend who made some bad choices" and refuses to be the subject of a sob story.
* EntitledBastard: He feels as though the world owes him and that he should have been the one to go to U.A. instead of Izuku. As a result, he's constantly pissed and never seems to acknowledge that his situation is one of his own making. This feeling is only exacerbated by Venom, who agrees with him and encourages this behavior. After saving a teenage girl and her little brother, he's annoyed that they didn't thank him afterward, even though he had screamed at them earlier.
* EveryoneHasStandards: He thinks nothing of wanting to beat Izuku within an inch of his life for ruining his own, but is horrified by the murders left in Carnage's wake.
* ExperiencedProtagonist: By the events of the story, Bakugou has already been Venom for several months and is infamous throughout Musutafu for his actions.
* ExplosivePropulsion: He's able to propel himself through the air by releasing constant explosions from his hands.
* {{Foil}}: To Cletus. Both of them are highly intelligent and violent symbiote users. But while Bakugou fights to save people and is given bad press for his DestructiveSavior tendencies, Cletus is adored by his followers and wants to expand his ReligionOfEvil to turn Earth into a living hell. Bakugou is also a case of SirSwearsALot, while Cletus is well-spoken and eloquent.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: While acting as Venom, he can heal from puncture wounds that go through his arm easily. But it still hurts and he takes special care to ward off things that could damage his brain.
* HandBlast: His explosions are released from his palms.
* HavingABlast: He still has his Quirk, Explosion, which he uses to great effect against the sound-sensitive symbiotes.
* HeroicHost: Downplayed. He already had powers before meeting Venom and is quite the {{Jerkass}}, but he ultimately uses his powers to fight for good, even if some of his motivations are less than heroic.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: He's constantly getting bad press due to his brutality, terrifying appearance, and the property damage he causes. The fact he’s fighting a one-man war against Carnage with no outside help doesn't help matters, nor does his tendency to flee from the scene once the Heroes arrive.
* HiddenInPlainSight: The Venom costume completely conceals his identity and build. He can blend back into a crowd simply by having Venom recede out of sight and walking around in his street clothes.
* HorrorHunger: He has to keep eating in order to keep Venom full while staving off the latter's urges to eat things like living dogs.
* ICouldaBeenAContender: He's constantly pissed about not attending U.A. and only gets even more angry when he hears how Izuku earned second place at the Sports Festival.
* InadequateInheritor: Despite their compatibility, Venom constantly compares him negatively to Eddie, who was far more patient and understanding with Venom than Bakugou is.
* InTheHood: He tries to avoid unwanted attention by keeping his face hidden in a hoodie while he and Venom are looking for Carnage and his lackeys.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He rarely registers how his actions affect others. After beating Izuku to a pulp and leaving burns all over him, Bakugou is remorseless and only feels annoyed that Deku tanked his chances at getting into U.A.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's loud, crude and blames everyone but himself for his own problems. One of his motivations for helping Venom is the opportunity to take out his frustrations on Izuku all over again.
* KryptoniteFactor: Due to being bonded with Venom, Bakugou possesses a weakness to intense heat and flame as well as high-intensity sound. However, the RequiredSecondaryPowers from his own Quirk dulls this weakness, letting him resist sounds that aren't too high-pitched and shrug off fire in short bursts. But Endeavor proves to be his ManOfKryptonite, as Venom can't even get close to him without howling in pain.
* LightningBruiser: He has all the powers of Venom, making him even faster, stronger, and tougher than Spider-Man. Combine this with the explosive propulsion and firepower of his Quirk, and you've got a hard-hitting brawler who can take as well as he can give.
* ManOfKryptonite: Downplayed. Bakugou's ability to produce heat and sound with this explosions allows him to paralyze symbiotes with point-blank attacks. However, this alone is rarely enough to finish the fight alone, and he has to deal with the Carnage-enhanced Quirks of his opponents in order to get in range.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Has rows and rows of teeth while fully fused with Venom.
* MorphicResonance: His version of the Venom costume keeps his spiky hair visible and bears the same gauntlets, pads, and grenades as the Hero costume he wanted to have.
* NeverMyFault: One of his defining traits is his inability to blame himself for any of his problems. He constantly blames Izuku and everyone else for losing his chance at getting into U.A., failing to save people as Venom, or losing his temper in self-destructive ways. He even bonded with Venom just to beat on Izuku again after Carnage is dealt with.
* PetTheDog:
** Despite his rowdiness and {{Jerkass}} behavior, he doesn't want to see innocents hurt and is horrified when he finds the apartment complex full of people slaughtered by Moonfish. He also shields a teenage girl and her little brother from Moonfish without a second thought and continues to fight the symbiotes even though it's earning him nothing but bad press.
** While he tells Venom to hurry up and get over Eddie so they can focus, he also respects how much Eddie meant to Venom despite not knowing him. Instead of starting an argument with Venom, Bakugou keeps his tone even and gently gets his point across. He also says nothing while letting Venom mourn.
* PowerIncontinence: Even after possessing SuperStrength for several months, Bakugou still loses control of it when he's pissed, punching through a store window and the TV behind it and fragmenting a sidewalk while throwing one of his tantrums.
* RedOniBlueOni: He's the impatient and irritable red to Venom's more task oriented and patient blue. When Bakugou rushes into combat, Venom tells him not to give himself away and pulls him out of danger. The dynamic is flipped when the two have someone at their mercy, as Venom giddily advocates murder while Bakugou coolly decides to leave judgment to the cops.
* SuperSenses: Venom cranks up Bakugou's senses, including his sense of smell. It isn't always helpful, as it makes revolting smells like rotting corpses and blood even more pungent.
* SuperSpeed: Venom greatly increases the strength of Bakugou's muscles, letting him run at superhuman speeds that leave the cops and Heroes pursuing him in the dust.
* SuperStrength: Even without being fully transformed, Venom gives Bakugou enough strength to crack a sidewalk with a single stomp. When fully released, the two of them can pick up and throw cars as well as leave craters from running and jumping around.
* SuperToughness: He's tough enough to shrug off crashing through buildings, a car exploding in his face, and falling from heights that leave a crater where he lands.
* TalkingToThemself: One of the major downsides of bonding to Venom is how crazy he looks when he mutters to himself and jerks his head around while talking to Venom.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: He mutters about how much it's going to suck when he detonates a car in his own face to take out Moonfish.
-->'''Bakugou:''' ''[as Venom]'' We’ll hate this! But if it means ending this, we will grin and bear it!
* ThouShaltNotKill: Despite his tendency to beat his opponents so badly that they enter comas, he never actually kills them despite wanting to and Venom's openness to the idea.
* VigilanteMan: He's officially a vigilante who is constantly going against the law to stop Carnage and his followers. More of then than not, he's being hounded by the police and Heroes as much as the actual murderers are.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Bakugou and Venom are constantly throwing insults at each other. Venom even mocks Bakugou during his HowWeGotHere narration and Bakugou constantly refers to Venom as "goop" to his annoyance. Despite this, the two of them look care for one another and pull each other out of danger.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Has this while fused with Venom, as shown by the bolded, italicized text his dialogue is written in while speaking as Venom.

[[folder:The Venom Symbiote]]
!!The Venom Symbiote
!!!'''Debut:''' Sidestory: Let the Devil In

An alien symbiote from the planet Klyntar and long-time partner of Eddie Brock. After Eddie is killed when they crash land onto Bakugou's Earth, Venom bonds to the teenager out of desperation to escape the burning wreckage. After discovering that they were surprisingly compatible, the the two of them made a deal: If Bakugou would help Venom find Carnage and take revenge on him for killing Eddie, Venom would help Bakugou make Deku pay for ruining his life.
----
* AlternateSelf: He comes from a universe similar to that of ''Film/Venom2018'', where there are no superheroes and no Spider-Man despite granting Bakugou the same spider-like abilities.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: He's spider-based, letting Bakugou climb up walls, giving him the proportional physical abilities of a spider, and produce tentacles as "webbing".
* AxCrazy: Once they have someone at their mercy, Venom giddily advocates for murdering Moonfish, but Bakugou shuts him down. Venom dejectedly calls him a pussy for this, but Bakugou doesn't care.
* BioArmor: Acts as this for Bakugou, giving him almost all of Spider-Man's powers, sprouting CombatTentacles, and protecting him from attacks.
* BlankWhiteEyes: Has these in the shape of Spider-Man's teardrop lenses, but they've become frayed after bonding to Bakugou.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: He grants his hosts almost all of Spider-Man's abilities along with a potent HealingFactor.
* ADarkerMe: Downplayed. Venom has a bad habit of encouraging Bakugou's worst impulses, like wanting to murder Moonfish, beat the crap out of Izuku, or his feelings of self-entitlement. But all of these traits are already there for him and there's no indication that Venom is subtly forcing him to do any of these.
* DeadpanSnarker: He often snarks at human antics as well as Bakugou's own failings.
-->'''Bakugou:''' I could do whatever I want, because I deserved it.\\
'''Venom:''' Yeah, and look how that turned out.\\
'''Bakugou:''' Shut up!
* EatingTheEnemy: He and Bakugou finish off Carnage's offshoots by extracting them from their hosts' spine and devouring them alive.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Bakugou refers to Venom as "goop", much to Venom's annoyance.
* FightOffTheKryptonite: Thanks to being bonded to the explosion-happy Bakugou, Venom's weaknesses to heat and sound have been dulled, protecting him from short bursts of flame and lower frequencies of intense sound. Unfortunately, the incredibly powerful Flame Hero Endeavor is still enough to leave them reeling in pain.
* HeartbrokenBadass: He's still reeling from Eddie's death and negatively compares Bakugou to him.
-->'''Venom:''' It’s just… it’s hard to believe that half of your life is just gone. It wasn’t supposed to go this way… I wasn’t supposed to be here and Eddie shouldn’t be buried so far from home.
* ImAHumanitarian: He threatens to eat Bakugou's old lackeys to get them to piss themselves and leave them alone.
* KillItWithFire: His biggest weakness is fire, screaming in pain after Endeavor attacks him. Luckily for him, bonding with Bakugou improved his resistance to it, letting them withstand short bursts of flame.
* TheNoseKnows: Venom has a super-strong sense of smell that he uses to track Carnage and his offshoots.
* OnlyFriend: Ever since his fall from grace, Venom has been Bakugou's only confidant. Their relationship is amicable despite their constant bickering and there's an obvious mutual respect between them.
* RedOniBlueOni: He's the more task oriented and patient blue to Bakugou's impatient and irritable red. When Bakugou rushes into combat, Venom tells him not to give himself away and pulls him out of danger. The dynamic is flipped when the two have someone at their mercy, as Venom giddily advocates murder while Bakugou coolly decides to leave judgment to the cops.
* ReformedButNotTamed: He's solidly on the side of good in regards to keeping innocents unharmed and punishing evil. But Venom doesn't mind threatening to eat people to get them to quit bothering him and advocates the murder option when they have their opponent at their mercy.
* RoyalWe: He prefers it when he and Bakugou are referred to as a single unit with "We", pestering him to refer to themselves as such during Bakugou's recap. When the two are completely fused, they switch to "we" in all their dialogue and the narration reflects this.
* SweetTooth: He constantly requests chocolate to keep himself sated between hunts.
* SymbioticPossession: He has this relationship with Bakugou. The two take care of each other and promise to fulfill each end of their bargain. Despite their bickering, they work well together and constantly cover each other's weaknesses in combat.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Bakugou and Venom are constantly throwing insults at each other. Venom even mocks Bakugou during his HowWeGotHere narration and Bakugou constantly refers to Venom as "goop" to his annoyance. Despite this, the two of them look care for one another and cover each other's weaknesses.

[[folder:Cletus Kasady - Carnage]]
!!Cletus Kassidy - Carnage
!!!'''Debut:''' Sidestory: Let the Devil In

A deranged serial killer from the same world as the Venom Symbiote. He's bonded to Venom's spawn, Carnage, becoming Eddie's and Venom's worst enemy in the process. He's currently gathering followers who share his twisted view in order to turn the Earth he arrived onto a paradise for Knull.
----
* AntagonisticOffspring: Carnage is Venom's spawn, becoming even more bloodthirsty than Venom himself.
* ArchEnemy: Of Eddie and Venom and now Bakugou.
* AxCrazy: He claims to have learned nine hundred ways to slice someone open even before he obtained the Carnage symbiote.
* {{Foil}}: To Bakugou. Both of them are highly intelligent and violent symbiote users. But while Bakugou fights to save people and is given bad press for his DestructiveSavior tendencies, Cletus is adored by his followers and wants to expand his ReligionOfEvil to turn Earth into a living hell. Bakugou is also a case of SirSwearsALot, while Cletus is well-spoken and eloquent.
* CombatSadomasochist: He enjoys killing people as much as he loves getting stabbed by Toga.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: You'd have to be insane to not run from someone who's named after wanton slaughter.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: When fully transformed into Carnage, he's an AxCrazy SerialKiller covered in black and red.
* SerialKiller: Cletus loves killing people and all the different ways he can do it.
* SuperEmpowering: He can plant offshoots of Carnage into his followers to grant them powers similar to his.


* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: He doesn't appear in person until after Izuku completes his one-week work-study with Gran Torino in the original series. In this story, he pops up as early as Issue 3 to discuss business dealings with Mysterio.

Added DiffLines:

* PowerParasite: He can take away people's Quirks and give them to others. The reason why he's so powerful and feared is that he's spent a ''century'' stockpiling Quirks for himself.
* SuperpowerLottery: In a world that revolves around Quirks, the ability to steal them and use them at will is among the most powerful of them all, not to mention the grievous wound he dealt to All Might, the WorldsStrongestMan.


* BondVillainStupidity: A rare heroic example. When he and Jirou [[spoiler:ambush and tie up Bakugou with webbing, Izuku monologues about how he's going to be a hero and is not going to shrink under him anymore. While that's fine and dandy, all it does is piss Bakugou off enough to free himself shortly after Izuku and Jirou turn tail to get to the bomb when they could have simply wrapped the capture tape around him.]]



* BoxingLessionsForSuperman: Even after getting superpowers, Izuku's initial attempts at fighting amount to wild flailing that Peter can dodge with a completely bored look on his face. After months of hand-to-hand combat training, Izuku proves to be at least equal, if not superior to Bakugou in close combat, using a variety of punches, kicks, and acrobatics to match Bakugou's explosive firepower.

* HiddenDepths: Izuku is sweet guy with a natural inclination to save people. But on some level he's [[GreenEyedMonster envious and resentful]] of people who have Quirks when he didn't, as shown by some of his bitter internal snarking and cursing how everyone is constantly reminding him that he's Quirkless. Even after gaining spider powers, the snark doesn't truly go away and he's disturbed by how frequently he lets these thoughts come to the surface now that he doesn't have to take anyone's crap anymore.

Added DiffLines:

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Subverted. After he and Jirou [[spoiler:tie up Bakugou, Izuku goes on a short speech about how he's not going to shirk under the name of Deku anymore. But this just wastes time they could have been using to get to the bomb, and in their haste to leave they forget to tie the capture tape around him, which lets him reenter the fight.]]


Added DiffLines:

* YouAreNotAlone: DoubleSubverted. He tells [[spoiler:Bakugou that he ''is'' alone, as everyone around him ''hated'' him for his behavior and only tagged along out of fear. After tearing down Bakugou's need for gratification and his horrible ego, Izuku ends his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech by admitting that he always admired him and ''is'' his friend.]]


Added DiffLines:

* CombatPragmatist: Rather than take on Bakugou head-on, Jirou proposes the she and Izuku ambush him instead to end the fight in one fell swoop. [[spoiler:The ambush works, but they DidntThinkThisTrhough and forget to wrap the capture tape around him in their rush to get to the bomb on time. Their second ambush, which involves Izuku incapacitating Bakugou with his Venom Strike, only works after Jirou offers herself up as bait to let Izuku sneak up on him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Capoeira}}: He uses spinning kicks from a crouched position while fighting Bakugou.


Added DiffLines:

* BadDreams: Peter has a recurring bad dream where he relives the day he let the robber that killed his Uncle Ben past and is powerless to do anything to stop him. Worse still, when the robber speaks, he has a VoiceOfTheLegion comprised of all of Peter's worst rogues.


* AwesomeByAnalysis: Having spent his whole life studying the Quirks of others, he can easily pick apart the mechanics of a Quirk and all of their uses with only a little bit of information. He's also memorized all of Bakugou's moves, which lets Jirou get the drop on him.



* PrecisionFStrike: Izuku sometimes curses with "damn" or "crap", but keeps it to himself rather than aiming the curses at anyone else. It's only when he's truly pissed that he decides to call Bakugou an "asshole" for his behavior.

Then, while trying to don't think about it, he remembers how Uraraka clinged at him in the exam plus how skingtight her costume is. He's implied to have gotten a hard-on and has to ThinkUnsexyThoughts to get rid of it, being thankful that male superheroes like him wear cups while out in the field.

* {{Determinator}}: He never gives up. For him, he has to win no matter what, even if it means hurting himself in the process. When Izuku manages to pin him to a wall with webbing, Bakugou's first response is to blast apart the wall he's stuck to, creating shrapnel jagged enough to embed themselves in his body, to free himself and continue fighting. Despite lacking SuperToughness, he also goes toe-to-toe with Izuku and both of them are covered in injuries by the end of their brawl.
