* HeadDesk: Kyoka bangs her head on the table when Momo's suggestion of plugging one of her jacks into her phone so she has more sound options proves viable, being upset that she never thought of it herself.

** Ochako points out that Momo's Quirk can't be converting her body fat into mass as during the Quirk Assessment, she made a canon that weight at least a few times as much as she did.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptedOut: Neither Rikido nor Mashirao are enrolled in U.A. due to the author finding them uninteresting.


* WeAREStrugglingTogether:

Added DiffLines:

* WrongAssumption: Momo assumes that Mina's acid can't melt through plastic, much like normal acids. Mina later tells her she can create acid that will melt anything but it's too dangerous for training purposes. Aizawa later reminds Momo that Quirks tend to operate on their own logic so you can't assume you understand someone's powers from basic information.


** After Mineta blatantly tries to grope Camie, Aizawa warns him that one more incident will result in his expulsion.



* WhatTheHellHero: Both Bakugo and Todoroki are lectured for using attacks that could seriously maim or even kill their classmates during the Heroes vs Villains exercise. Todoroki gets off a bit lighter due to his obvious horror at what he almost did.

* HealingFactor: Izuku can create healing flames to regenerate but it seems to have a minimum amount of damage it can heal. All-Might has to break one of Izuku's arms for the boy to activate it.

* HealingFactor: Izuku can create healing flames to regenerate but it seems to have a minimum amount of damage it can heal. All-Might has to break one of Izuku's arms for the boy to activate it. By the time he enrolls in U.A., Izuku can activate it at will or keep it from activating.



* PragmaticHero: Aizawa praises students who know when to ignore villains in favor of completing their task, such as Kirishima not bothering to fight Tsuyu and instead heading straight for the bomb. As Aizawa states, a hero's first job is saving people, not fighting villains.


Added DiffLines:

* PowerIncontinence: Izuku mentions offhand that it took months to learn how to activate his HealingFactor at will and even longer to keep it from activating.

* AbsoluteCleavage: Momo's and Camie's hero costumes are both unzipped to at least their navels.

to:

* AbsoluteCleavage: Momo's and Camie's hero costumes are both unzipped to at least their navels. While Camie likes the look (at least when Mineta isn't leering at her), Momo mentions being somewhat uncomfortable but finding it necessary.

**
Iida's attempts to act villainous only make Ochako giggle.giggle.
** Momo is somewhat socially inept but others, especially Izuku and Mina, find her enthusiasm adorable.


Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Mina frequently cuddles Izuku, even referring to him as her "cuddle buddy" at one point, on top of him being one of only two people she's nicknamed. Meanwhile Izuku and Momo have a tendency make eye contact then look away while blushing.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatIsThisFeeling: Momo is surprised to find herself jealous of Mina when the latter cuddles Izuku.

Added DiffLines:

* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Aizawa actively discourages this behavior, telling his students to focus on their goals rather than get distracted by every little thing. In his words, "catching a thief when you were trying to save a child isn't a success".


Added DiffLines:

* KansasCityShuffle: During the Heroes vs Villains exercise, Aoyama and Bakugo think Iida is fighting them to keep them from finding the bomb hidden within the refinery but he's actually distracting them long enough for Ochako to sneak it ''out'' of the building.

* CastFromStamina: Izuku's healing is physically draining, though he does note that Recovery Girl's Quirk is much more draining than his own.

* EpicFail: Denki's attempt to flirt with Momo goes right over her head.



* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: When pitted against each other in the Heroes vs Villains exercise, Izuku and Momo spend some time thinking up plans and wondering if the other would know about it.

to:

* HonorBeforeReason: Aizawa's main criticism for Ochako's and Iida's actions during the Heroes vs Villains exercise is that they continued fighting after they'd already guaranteed their victory rather than retreating and letting the hero team search pointlessly until time ran out.
* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: When pitted against each other in the Heroes vs Villains exercise, Izuku and Momo spend some time thinking up plans and wondering if the other would know about it. Most pointedly, while wondering where to hide the bomb, Izuku and Mina consider hiding it in the largest building available, only for Izuku to think that's too obvious but then ponder that Momo might know it's too obvious and ignore it. Indeed, Momo and Denki initially scout the other buildings first because they thought using the largest warehouse was too obvious.



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Todoroki is horrified when he loses his temper and lashes out with a massive amount of ice during the Heroes vs Villains exercise. Even with his quick action melting the ice, he still badly injured his classmates, including breaking several of Camie's ribs. Afterwards, the one thing keeping his reputation above Bakugo's is that he obviously didn't intend to go as far as he did and was disgusted with himself

* NoSocialSkills: Momo is a downplayed example, completely missing Denki's innuendo when they're teamed up and unintentionally flaunting her wealth to her friends.

* AtomicFBomb: Izuku's shouted "Fuck" is loud enough to be heard over the evacuation alarms going off when the press get onto the school grounds.



* DontCreateAMartyr: All For One warns Shigaraki that merely killing All-Might will turn him into a martyr. Instead, they first have to destroy All-Might's legacy.



** A milder example occurs when Izuku freezes everyone in the cafeteria. After he's done lambasting them, Izuku collapses to the ground.



* PrecisionFStrike:

to:

* PrecisionFStrike: When the evacuation alarm sounds during lunch, several students are almost trampled, causing Izuku to freeze everyone in place and start yelling at them.
-->'''Izuku:''' WHAT THE '''FUCK''' ARE YOU ALL DOING?! ARE YOU HEROES IN TRAINING OR A BUNCH OF STAMPEDING IDIOTS?! CAN'T YOU SEE YOU'RE HURTING EACH OTHER?! YOU ALMOST CRUSHED ONE OF MY CLASSMATES!


Added DiffLines:

** During the panicked evacuation after the media gets onto school grounds, the invisible Toru is nearly trampled since no one can spot her after she's knocked down.
* RhetoricalQuestionBlunder: When Izuku yells at the panicking students whether they're heroes in training or "a bunch of stampeding idiots", several of them point out that they're business students.


* CastFromStamina: Izuku's healing is physically draining, though he does note that Recovery Girl's Quirk is much more draining than his own.

* HiddenDepths: Momo is fan of comicbooks and mentions the PstandardPsychicPstance by name.



* InnocentlyInsensitive: Subverted. Momo unintentionally flaunts her wealth to her classmates but they find her too adorable to be offended by it.



* LonelyRichKid: The idea of her classmates coming to her house has Momo thinking to herself that she "feels like she finally has friends".



* OnceIsNotEnough: Izuku's belief he'd taken out Kaminari during the Heroes vs Villains exercise allows the latter to launch a sneak attack that almost takes Izuku out of the match. The next day Aizawa warns him that sort of thing has ended a great number of careers and to make sure his opponent is really down next time.



* PrecisionFStrike:



*** Bakugo and Todoroki are both on thin ice for using such attacks against classmates. Todoroki gets off relatively lightly because he's obviously horrified at his loss of control but is still required to write a three-page essay on what he did wrong.

* SpoiledSweet: When planning to hang out at her house, Momo asks what everyone's favorite tea is and offers to have the butlers run to the store to buy it if she doesn't have it in stock.



* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Momo starts doubting herself after Izuku defeats her, only for both Izuku and All-Might to list everything she did during the heroes vs villains exercise, with Izuku insisting she be named MVP of the match.

** She gets another dose when everyone is discussing their Quirks and she's reassured that unless she had a brain enhancing Quirk, it'd be impossible for her to remember formulas to create objects faster than she already does. The others also point out that Momo not only made a fully charged battery but a pair of drones and tablets that were already fully programmed when she created them.


* AbsurdCuttingPower: Izuku's psychic blade can apparently cut through anything, including the Zero Pointer and the ground beneath it, creating a canyon on the testing grounds.

*** Kaminari no longer produces electricity as an offensive weapon but instead stores and manipulate electricity (and magnetism to an extent), including using electricity to boost his healing. His weakness is also changed to having significant amounts of water shorting him out and causing painful electric shocks, even having to ground himself to take a shower. Kaminari is also not allowed inside cars lest his electricity accidentally ignite the gasoline. this is essentially the powers and weaknesses the protagonist of the first two ''VideoGame/InFamous'' games has.

** Inasa himself has been reigned in a bit through his friendship with Izuku and occasional under All Might. Izuku is able to talk him out of rejecting his UA acceptance over his issues with Shoto Todoroki.

** Sero and Camie functionally defeat Todoroki during the Heroes vs Villains exercise by using their Quirks to trap him after he goes for an illusionary bomb. Izuku lampshades that Todoroki would win a straight up fight against them, which is good motivation for the two not to engage him in a straight fight.
* CrazyPrepared: Before the Heroes vs Villains exercise, Momo creates a pair of drones with optional x-ray cameras so she and Kaminari can scout the area for the villains team. She also creates a large battery as a last ditch resort for Kaminari, coats her SimpleStaff in plastic so Mina can't melt it, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking wears pasties under her costume in case she has to open it fully to create something]].
* CripplingOverspecialization: Toru and Mineta do the worst of everyone during the physical tests due to relying too heavily on their Quirks. Except for Mineta using his balls for the side-hop challenges, the two are among the worst performances on every test. Contrast, some like Camie also have Quirks useless for the tests but still do well through physical conditioning to make up for it.

* HiddenPurposeTest: Unlike canon where the Zero Pointer is simply [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin worth no points]], here the students are told attacking it will give them an automatic zero on the practical exam. The teachers muse that it's real purpose is to see what the applicants will do when facing an enemy where they have nothing to gain and everything to lose. Izuku attacks the Zero Pointer to save Ochako, which earns him the highest score in U.A.'s history.

** After both Bakugo and Todoroki unleash massive, uncontrolled attacks during the heroes vs villains exercise, All-Might explains that such attacks are a ''terrible'' idea indoors for both heroes and villains. Besides the greater risk of injuriing yourself or your allies, villains run the risk of destroying their own stronghold while heroes get faced with massive property damage they're obligated to pay for.
*** Bakugo and Todoroki are both on thin ice for using such attacks against classmates. Todoroki gets off relatively lightly because he's obviously horrifed at his loss of control but is still required to write a three page essay on what he did wrong.
