** Aizawa is known for being a ProperlyParanoid PragmaticHero, so when someone as young as Izuku, who is repeatedly referred to as a "late-bloomer" with [[StrongAndSkilled an unusually versatile emitter Quirk and the skill to wield it as such]], becomes his student, he is of-course suspicious from the get-go. Add on the fact that his own Quirk - a Quirk designed to effect emitter Quirks without fail - does not affect Izuku's performance one bit and Aizawa takes it up with the principle as a big priority.

* ALoadOfBull: Rintrah is a green minotaur-like sorcerer at Kamar-Taj that teaches Izuku how to use OutsideTheBoxTactic[=s=] when wielding combat-magic. No word on whether or not he is a sorcerer from another dimension like his comic book counterpart or if his physiology is the product of a mutation Quirk though.
* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: Doctor Strange had taken on one apprentice before Izuku named Ikiji Kokotsu. Like Izuku, he was a vulnerable boy who desperately craved power and attention. Ikiji was eventually lured in by Kaecilius' promise of salvation through Dormammu and turned to the dark arts for greater power.

** In-canon, the Nomus are humans that have been altered irreparably through mad-science and All For One's Quirk. Here, they are Mindless Ones (HumanoidAbomination[=s=] made from humans corrupted by Dormammu's power) enhanced by All For One, turning the Nomus designed to kill All Might as a bigger juggernaut than in-canon, All Might needing a power boost by Doctor Strange's magic just to fight on an even playing-field.
* AdaptationalBadass: While Izuku was impressive in-canon with the power of "One For All" and the HeroicWillpower to wield it, the Izuku here possesses powers that much better compliment his analytical mind. Having been taught by the greatest sorcerer in this dimension for 18 months (one that encourages a JackOfAllTrades skillset and the flexibility to use them all in any practical situation), Izuku has become a ChildProdigy in the use of a power that no Quirk-user in his class can properly comprehend or anticipate, experience to danger that allows him to adapt quicker when the class has their first encounter with the League of Villains and has since met with various high-ranking pros ranging from All Might to Iron Man and Spider-Man. This results in Izuku becoming one of the top-three on the Entrance Exam's score-board with [[SuperpowerLottery an impressive, powerful and extremely versatile "quirk"]], a positive personality that endears him to nearly all of his classmates and "TheAce" status in his class and possibly the rest of the Hero-Course.

* OutsideContextProblem: As versatile and unpredictable the world of Quirks [[spoiler: and aliens, if WordOfGod is to be believed in the case of Thor]] can be, magic is still kept a secret to the rest of the population. Since most superpowers in this world are something one is born with and is usually relegated to a single ability that requires training and imagination to be used productively, magic being something that anyone can learn with an open-mind, an imagination and the right kind of teachers and the ''ridiculous'' number of applications that can come from it by comparison, any pro-hero that does not have prior knowledge of magic can easily be overwhelmed by the concept alone, much less when encountering a sorcerer with a villain's intent, and even then their best chance is to have a magic-user on their side.
* PapaWolf: Strange grows protective of Izuku as the months pass, to the point that his first question while arriving as TheCavalry at USJ is to ask where Izuku is. He's also fully willing to kill Ikiji, his former pupil, if it means protecting Izuku.

** Aizawa is known for being a ProperlyParanoid PragmaticHero, so when someone as young as Izuku, who is repeatedly referred to as a "late-bloomer" with [[StrongAndSkilled an unusually versatile emitter quirk and the skill to wield it as such]], becomes his student, he is of-course suspicious from the get-go. Add on the fact that his own quirk - a quirk designed to effect emitter quirks without fail - does not effect Izuku's performance one bit and Aizawa takes it up with the principle as a big priority.
** After the USJ incident, Stephen confesses that he intended on telling all of Class 1-A at one point the truth about the nature of Izuku's "quirk" regardless of the circumstances. When it is asked of him if that is a good idea, more people knowing the truth risking the [[ToUnmasqueTheWorld Unmasquing the World]], Stephen points out that he would be revealing it to 19 teenagers in a {{Masquerade}} of ''millions'' and it would not make much of a difference.
** When the world takes a MightMakesRight opinion towards quirks and does little to instill ComesGreatResponsibility at a young age (like, say, a kindergarten teacher allowing students who had just discovered their quirks to use them all they like), only to try and enforce regulations only on children with "inconvenient" quirks like Kizuka, they just might feel like the system has failed them and just might rebel out of spite.
** Accuse someone who lost the SuperpowerLottery and [[AntagonistAbilities received a face-value scary quirk]] as "evil" long enough and enough times, [[ThenLetMeBeEvil they might just come out believing it and develop great resentment towards their more well-liked peers]], as is the case with Club Fear.

* ShockAndAwe: By the time he attends U.A., Izuku's most powerful offensive spell is the Bolts of Bedevilment, which shoots a burst of high-voltage electricity comparable to Kaminari's in intensity. Kaminari notices this during the Entrance Exam and becomes mildly jealous, his own quirk electricity-based, but also a danger to his allies due to his inability to aim it like Izuku can.
* ShoutOut: When Izuku tries to use the Eye of Agamotto to retrieve the Book of Cagliostro after it was stolen, he winds up trapped in a timeless void where he catches brief glimpses of himself from various alternate timelines. Such examples include a timeline where [[Manga/MyHeroAcademia he accepts Toshinori's offer to take "One For All"]], [[Fanfic/SoonIShallBeIndestructible he is technologically augmented by Mei]], [[Fanfic/ErasedPotential he is being trained by Aizawa to become a quirkless hero]], he is an agent for Quirk Intelligence, is an oni-masked serial killer, [[Fanfic/{{Daymare}} he possesses a Lovecraftian quirk]], is engulfed in impenetrable shadow where dark hands are crawling over him possessively and various timelines where he was just dead.

* SupportPartyMember: When paired with All Might, Doctor Strange takes on this role, using his magic to protect and provide a boost to the already near-unstoppable All Might. This makes more sense in present-day, All Might's injury and passing his quirk onto Kirishima making him much weaker and more vulnerable.

* TokenWizard: Izuku winds up becoming this to Class 1-A (and the U.A. student body in-general), being regarded as the first sorcerer in U.A.'s history of enrollment, with implications that he will be the first pro-hero who's powers are magical instead of quirk or [[ScienceHero science]]-based. Of course, since [[{{Masquerade}} the existence of magic (and the psychological baggage that comes with it) is kept a secret from a majority of the population]], Izuku is seen more as TheAce for [[SuperpowerLottery having a "quirk" with an unusually high number of different applications to it]].

He comes to in the hospital, having been tended to by one [[ComicBook/DoctorStrange Doctor Stephen Strange.]] Unfortunately, Strange had not saved Izuku in time, as the boy's hands had been crushed in the accident, leaving them trembling and nearly useless. Now legally a cripple, Izuku thinks his dreams are kaput until the day he's to be released from the hospital, when Strange offers him an alternative: become a hero with magic in place of a Quirk. And so one powerless boy takes his first steps towards becoming a Master of the Mystic Arts to protect his dimension and all others.

* AbledInTheAdaptation: Inverted. Izuku's hands were crushed by the rocks, churning waters, and the log before Doctor Strange could save him. As a result, he can barely grip anything, much less move it, and his hands are always shaking. He isn't able to feed or dress himself and his heart sinks when he realizes he won't be able to help others in this state. More than a year of training with Strange has restored some of Izuku's ability to use his hands, but he's still lacking in some dexterity and strength, barely managing to produce 10 kg of force during Aizawa's Quirk Apprehension Test.
* AdaptationOriginConnection: Power Loader is said to have provided support items for the founding members of the Avengers. [[spoiler:He's also deeply troubled by his part in producing Ultron.]]

* OnlyThePureOfHeart: When Stephen explains to Wong that Izuku's [[IncorruptiblePurePureness indomitable heart]] is why he chose him to be his apprentice, Wong decides to put him through the Test of Heart to be sure. Izuku is tasked with closing the lid of the Flaming Foo Furnace of Fujian, a powerful relic that summons foo dogs composed of fire. Along with the foo dogs, Wong uses the Stygian Sceptre of Seamless Shadow to conjure illusions that take the form of Izuku's guilt and insecurities. [[spoiler: Izuku manages to do it when Stephen's Cloak of Levitation carries him out of the scepter's smoke and above the foo dog's range, proving himself both worthy by completing the test and revealing that the notoriously fickle Cloak had chosen him as an alternate wielder.]]
