    Shinji Nishiya - Kamui Woods 

Shinji Nishiya - Kamui Woods

Debut: Issue #1: What If?

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kamui_wood_1.png

A Pro Hero with the power to generate wood from his body. He's a newcomer to the Pro Hero circuit but carries traditional heroic values unlike his rival and fellow rookie Mount Lady.


  • Building Swing: He can create branches to swing around, not unlike Izuku's and Peter's usage of their web-shooters.
  • Cavalry Refusal: 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.
  • Cool Helmet: Wears a wooden helmet that covers his face, giving him a ninja-like appearance.
  • Green Thumb: 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.
  • Nice Guy: 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 Wall Crawling and Intangibility "Quirks" and offers him an internship once he graduates from Hero School.
  • Plant Person: His arms seem to be made of wood and he has his helmet on at all times.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Has a small bundle of pink and red flowers on his costume.

    Yu Takeyama - Mount Lady 

Yu Takeyama - Mount Lady

Debut: Issue 3 - If This Be My Destiny...!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mt_lady_4.png

A rising Pro Hero whose popularity has grown thanks to her flashy gigantification Quirk, her 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.


  • Attention Whore: 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.
  • Cavalry Refusal: 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.
  • Damsel in Distress: 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,
  • Destructive Savior: 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.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: 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.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: 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.
  • Kill Steal: She took down a Villain that Kamui Woods was handling, stealing the credit for herself.
  • Lazy Bum: 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.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her costume is formfitting and she has no problems with waving her butt at the camera.
  • Personality Powers: The Attention Whore has a Quirk that makes her grow bigger.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: She has zero issues with waving her butt at cameras or appearing on sketchy magazine covers to get attention and recognition.
  • Size Shifter: Her Quirk lets her grow from her normal height (162 cm) to a giantess (2062 cm) and nothing in between.

    Death Arms 

Death Arms

Debut: Issue 3 - If This Be My Destiny...!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/death_arms.png

A Frankenstein-themed Hero with a Super Strength Quirk, he is one of the Heroes on the scene when Prowler is fighting Peter throughout Musutafu.


  • The Big Guy: He's big and burly, as suited for a guy with Super Strength.
  • Cavalry Refusal: 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.
  • Good Is Not Soft: 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 Stain's hit list (not that it's hard to get on there).
  • Heroic Build: He's got a well-built physique to match his Super Strength.
  • Meaningful Name: His hero name in Japanese is spoken as "Desutegoro", which comes from the word sutegoro, a yakuza term for "hand-to-hand/barehanded combat".
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His hero name is derived from a yakuza term for hand-to-hand combat and literally means "death arms". Subverted in that he's a gruff but well-meaning Hero.
  • Super Strength: His Quirk.

    Endeavor - Enji Todoroki 

Enji Todoroki - Endeavor

Debut: Issue #4: Deku's Homecoming!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/endeavor_anime_profile.png

The Number Two Hero. He's known for his powerful fire Quirk and keen detective skills, but his cold and ruthless exterior and barely-hidden animosity for All Might make him unpopular among his peers and the public.


  • Always Second Best: 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. Because of this, he's always looking for ways to one-up All Might, including trying to start conferences without him and withholding information he finds until he can present it personally.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the Number Two Hero and even Peter is wary of fighting him after learning what he's capable of from Izuku.
  • Badass Beard: He maintains a beard of fire while in public that flares when he's annoyed.
  • Elemental Eye Colors: Inverted, he has icy blue eyes, but manipulates searing fire instead.
  • Genius Bruiser: 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.
  • Good Is Not Nice: 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.
  • Good Powers, Bad People: Downplayed. There's nothing inherently good or bad about his Quirk, but he uses it to be a lifesaving Hero while also being a complete Jerkass on and off the job.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: He's got these while ironically wielding a powerful fire Quirk.
  • Playing with Fire: His Quirk, "Hellflame" lets him produce searingly hot fire and shape it into weapons like spears.

    Masaki Mizushima — Manual 

Mizushima Masaki — Manual

Debut: Issue #6: Power and Responsibility

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/manual_anime.png

A "normal Hero" who prides himself on being a "manual" for aspiring Heroes to live by, which inspires his Hero Name. He intervenes when the Rocker Racer gang is terrorizing the streets of Musutafu, but is heavily injured in the process.


  • Adaptational Early Appearance: In My Hero Academia, he first makes an appearance after the Sports Festival. Here, he's badly injured months before Izuku takes the U.A. Entrance Exam.
  • Apologetic Attacker: He apologizes to nearby civilians for taking their drinks while trying to stop the Rocker Racers.
  • Blue Is Heroic: His main color scheme.
  • The Generic Guy: Invoked. He wants to be a template for other aspiring Heroes to base themselves on, hence his Hero Name and all-around normal look.
  • Making a Splash: He's able to manipulate the flow of water, but can't produce it himself. He has to borrow the drinks of nearby bystanders to make use of his Quirk.
  • Meaningful Name: In both of his names:
    • Masaki can be read as both "Masaki" and "Seiki", the latter means "regular"/"normal", referring to his intentional status as The Generic Guy.
    • Mizushima includes the kanji for water, alluding to his Quirk.
  • The Worf Effect: 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.

    Rumi Usagiyama — Mirko 

Rumi Usagiyama — Mirko

Debut: Issue #11: Meanwhile...

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bunny_girl.jpg

The “rabbit Hero” who prefers to work alone and loves a good fight with Villains. She fights against the new Rhino as part of a sting on his planned bank robbery, but her solo victory is ruined by the appearance of Mount Lady. Her Quirk is "Rabbit", which grants her a rabbit-like anatomy and abilities.


  • Adaptational Early Appearance: In My Hero Academia, she does not appear until the new rankings of the Top Heroes are announced in chapter 184. Here, she appears as a well-known Hero assisting the police.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Mirko has noticeable muscles in her arms, torso, and thighs, visible in her rather skimpy and tight hero costume, helped by her revealing Leotard of Power. Unsurprisingly, she has a lot of admirers because of this.
  • I Work Alone: She prefers to win against Villains alone, which means Mount Lady’s interference annoys her greatly. She also sneers at the idea of needing assistance, which leads to her heartless comments to Mount Lady needing help to be rescued when she was being held hostage by the Prowler.
  • Kick Chick: Fights primarily with her Quirk-augmented kicks.
  • Trash Talk: Engages in this while facing against Rhino, making a couple of lame puns during their fight and acting like Bugs Bunny to piss the Villain off.
