The Red Dragon Hero
Click here to him with his Scale Mail armor 

The story's main character, Izuku is a Quirkless teenager who, in spite of his status, wants to be a hero like his idol, All Might. Tricked and killed by the fallen angel Raynare, he is brought back from death and reincarnated into a devil by Rias Gremory, which allows him to discover a power he knew not he had: a Sacred Gear.

His Sacred Gear is "Boosted Gear", which in its base form allows him to double his power and physical skills every ten seconds, but which contains even more secrets for him to discover. He also carries the Pawn piece, which allows him to access all other pieces' powers (save the King's) in certain circumstances. As of Chapter 32, he has become the Ninth Torchbearer of One For All at All Might's request.


  • Ability Mixing: Uses the Boosts from the Boosted Gear to increase the durability of his bones when using One For All, and uses the energy from the Quirk to increase the power of his Dragon Shots.
  • The Ace: He is considered one of the strongest students in the first-year hero course.
  • Adaptational Badass: Thanks to his draconic ancestry, he's capable of hitting hard and fast without risking his health as his canon self did, and Boosted Gear increases the power he can wield. During the Entrance Exam, he takes first place, while the USJ incident has him reliably handling off multiple villains. He ends up accepting All Might's offer to pass One for All to him after the fight with Kokabiel and figures out how to use Full Cowl much earlier than canon.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Izuku is still Quirkless, but he has the Boosted Gear, as well as the powers of the Pawn Piece. After USJ, Izuku is chosen as the Ninth Torchbearer of One for All by All Might himself, accepting the offer after the fight with Kokabiel.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Some of the girls who have an interest in him usually have some kind of nickname for him.
    • Rias calls him "Izu-kun" for short.
    • Ochako, unlike in canon, also calls him Izu-kun.
    • Tsubasa, of Sona's peerage, calls him "Green".
    • Mina begins to call him "Midori".
    • Irina calls him "Zuku".
    • Hagakure picks "Izi".
  • Berserk Button: Hurting or disrespecting his friends is a big one. When he saw how callously Riser treats Rias, as well as his plans for the girls if he won the Rating Game, it enraged him. He gets pissed when Bakugo calls Rias a "bitch", and also when Shinso badmouths her during their fight at the Sports Festival. And during the USJ, when the Nomu attempts to attack Ibara, he unlocks his Balance Breaker to save her.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: He practically has a meltdown upon meeting Rias, to start. The only girl he's remotely comfortable with at the beginning of the story is his classmate Milia, who's a succubus. He does get better with time due to interacting with the Peerage's girls, but there are always situations that set him back.
  • Character Tics: Izuku's mumble storms are still in full force.
  • Chick Magnet: As of Chapter 25, he has three girls (Rias Gremory, Uraraka Ochako, and Shiozaki Ibara) who are openly sharing his bed (while naked), six girls who are attracted to him, and heavy hints of even more to come. According to Ddraig, the Boosted Gear and his draconic ancestry make him instinctively more attractive than other males. It certainly doesn't hurt that he's gotten rather buff from all his training and that he's a very Nice Guy.
  • Clark Kent Outfit: His normal clothes are rather deceptive about how muscular he's gotten after training, Kendo has an interesting reaction when she innocently pokes him and realizes just how buff he is.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: He's rather shocked and doesn't understand why multiple girls suddenly start falling for him.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Izuku has two contrasting colors that are tied to his being. The first is Green. His hair and eyes are green, his hero costume is green, his draconic powers make him look green. It's even part of his Meaningful Name. One for All also emphasizes green. The second is Red. He's the Red Dragon Emperor, his favorite shoes are red, when using Boosted Gear his scales turn red and his Balance Breaker gives him red Powered Armor.
  • Color Failure: He's done this a couple of times so far. The first was when Irina kissed him goodbye at the airport, the second was when All Might reveals that he knows that the ORC members are Devils.
  • Combo Platter Powers: He has Boosted Gear, a trained Lightning Bruiser before using Promotion, and the 9th bearer of One for All. Izuku is a powerful warrior/hero in the making.
  • Composite Character: He's Izuku Midoriya, getting Issei's Boosted Gear, revival after being killed by Raynare, role as the Ultimate Pawn, and the ability to attract all the girls.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Izuku is a Reincarnated Devil, and is one of the most selfless heroes in the entire story. He is so pure of heart that he can touch Hauteclere without a problem.
  • Dork Knight: Izuku is a Hero Otaku who Cannot Talk to Women and becomes an Ascended Fanboy Socially Awkward Hero. There's no way he can avoid being this.
  • Dungeon Bypass: Manages to fly over multiple obstacles in the Sports Festival Obstacle Course.
  • Exact Words: He tends to call his draconic and Sacred Gear abilities a "power" to avoid lying about having a Quirk, but Liana manages to notice the wording.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Apparently, he's the only one in 1-A besides Kaminari and Mineta that hadn't figured out Todoroki's gender before the Sports Festival.
  • Finishing Move: So far, Izuku created two such attacks. One is Dragon Smash a boosted punch that is done to near his limits and the second is San Francisco Dragon Shot, an attack that successfully combines Boosted Gear's Dragon Shot and 20% Full Cowl One for All.
  • First Kiss: Has his with Rias in Chapter 18. Or so he thought - Irina stole it when they were kids and he was asleep.
  • Foil: Izuku acts as one to Issei Hyoudou, Katsuki Bakugo, Shoto Todoroki, the White Dragon Emperor, Cao Cao, Sairaorg Bael, and Tomura Shigaraki.
  • Freudian Slip: When All Might teases him about being in a relationship with a classmate, Izuku mentions Rias even though All Might had not mentioned anyone. All Might notes that the kid's clearly head over heels for Rias, even if he hasn't realized it yet.
  • Guile Hero: He is a smart kid, and when he wants he can use that with great effect. During the Cavalry Battle, he has Ibara steal another headband, and then Milia (who is the rider) swaps them around so no one can tell the one on her forehead is not the ten million headband.
  • Heroic BSoD: Usually Played for Laughs, mostly because it is caused by a girl.
    • The first comes after Rias and he have a passionate kissing session in chapter 18.
    • The second is after Irina kisses him for a full minute in the airport - and he doesn't wake from this one until an hour later when he finds himself in his bed.
  • Horned Humanoid: When his dragon blood awakens he starts growing horns, which get larger when he actively uses his powers.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: He wants to be a hero even though he doesn't have a Quirk. Fortunately, Rias saving him gives him the chance to find he has the Boosted Gear and realize his dream.
  • In Spite of a Nail: He still gets One For All even though he doesn't get involved in the Sludge Villain incident.
  • Karmic Jackpot: Like canon, after years of torment for chasing his dream despite being Quirkless and going through a life and (literal) death situation, discovering his Sacred Gear allows him to finally become a hero. That isn't even the end of his jackpot as after USJ, All Might choose him to become the 9th Bearer of One for All - which, going with canon, will end up giving him a whole total of seven Quirks.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Thanks to Boosted Gear, he's quick enough to hit Kokabiel in the face and break his nose. Makes you wonder what will happen when he combines Boosted Gear with One for All.
  • Loose Lips: Has an unfortunate tendency to let others know parts of his secrets.
    • His wording of "power" when talking about his Sacred Gear clues Liana in that he doesn't have an actual Quirk.
    • When Todoroki asks Izuku if he is the secret lovechild of All Might and Ryukyu, Izuku answers "That's not it at all", letting Todoroki know that Izuku does have a link to one of the heroes.
  • Luminescent Blush: Turns really red in the face when talking to a pretty girl. (Un)Fortunately for him, he's smack dab in the middle of a growing group of beautiful girls that want to jump his bones. He's (slowly) getting better.
  • Magnetic Hero: He may be timid and shy, but he has an incredible natural charisma that unwittingly leads to him taking the lead, and pushes everyone else around him to do their best by being the example.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: It's noted that his muscles are clearly meant for combat, not for show like with some bodybuilders. All Might even decides to forgo any extra training after examining his physique, believing that he's already strong enough to handle One for All.
  • Otaku: Izuku still loves Heroes more than anything, especially All Might. His room is plastered from wall-to-wall with All Might's merchandise and his signature attack, Dragon Smash, is similar to All Might's trademark attacks.
  • Poster-Gallery Bedroom: Rias lampshades how, while she knew he was a hero fanboy, she wasn't expecting to see all the All Might posters and figurines, action figures, and other merchandise in his room. Somehow that is more embarrassing for Izuku than the fact he and Rias are naked in his bed.
  • Recessive Super Genes: His dragon heritage doesn't appear until he unlocks the Boosted Gear.
  • Red Baron: After the Peerage Game, Izuku becomes known as the "Red Dragon Hero" in the Underworld.
  • Scars Are Forever: Gets a large scar in one of his wings after Taking the Bullet from Xenovia.
  • Shapeshifting Excludes Clothing: Averted, his dragon and devil wings can manifest without harming his clothes, but his hero costume has Velcro slits for his dragon wings anyway so people don't get suspicious about the lack of holes in his shirt.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: When All Might talks with Izuku about him dating other students, he panics and claims that he and Rias are Just Friends - even though All Might didn't even mention her.
  • Super Empowering: Even without One for All, Izuku can transfer his Boosts from Boosted Gear to his allies to grant them a temporary power-up for their attacks.
  • Taking the Bullet: Reflexively pushes Xenovia out of the way when Rashomon attacks her, though he thankfully only loses a part of his dragon wing, which does get restored.
  • Uneven Hybrid: Ddraig estimates that he's at least 1/16th dragon, which doesn't manifest in him until after he gains the use of the Boosted Gear.
  • Warrior Therapist: He has a penchant for helping people get past bad experiences and on the path to recovery.
    • Back at middle school, he helped Milia start her path towards getting rid of her Broken Bird status.
    • Helps Kiba move on from his problems with Excalibur.
    • During the fight with Kokabiel, pushes Rias out of her Heroic BSoD.
    • Gives Irina hope after she learns God is Dead.
    • Convinces Todoroki to use the fire half of his Quirk.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green, but it's hardly unusual in the world of My Hero Academia, where people can have anything from pink to blue to sticky purple balls for hair.
  • Youthful Freckles: A trademark of his character design that hasn't changed in this story.

Ddraig

Species: Dragon

One of the two Heavenly Dragons who got sealed thanks to them fighting off the other three factions. He is the dragon who is residing with Izuku as the Longinus "Boosted Gear".


  • The Gadfly: Loves to needle Izuku when he gets flustered or in trouble with the girls.
  • Spirit Advisor: Of a sort. Since his spirit currently resides within the Boosted Gear and he does occasionally give Izuku advice (just not with girls). He even helps Izuku get a better hang of using One for All.
  • Time Abyss: He was already very old and one of the most powerful beings in the world during the war between Angels, Fallen and Devils, thousands of years before the story.

    Rias Gremory 

Princess / President Rias Gremory

Role: King

Species: Pure-Blooded Devil

U.A. Class Status: 2-D General Studies Class

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_4017.jpeg

Beautiful. Stunning. Deadly. Rias Gremory is all these things and more, and her status as the pure-blood Heir of House Gremory and sister to one of the Four Maous ensure this will only grow in time. A General Studies student at U.A., president of its Occult Research Club and co-ruler of the Musutafu underworld, she reveals herself to Izuku after he accidentally summons her while in the throes of death: interested and intrigued by him, she revives him as the Pawn of her Peerage and helps him train so he can achieve his dream - as well as entering into a special relationship with him.

As the King, she can supply people with the Devil Pieces needed to bring people into her Peerage and wields the greatest power of all in her team, as well as the Power of Destruction she inherited from her mother.


  • Almighty Janitor: The Crimson-Haired Ruin Princess is a General Studies student.
  • Amazonian Beauty: She's an incredibly beautiful, powerful fighter.
  • Arranged Marriage: She was arranged to marry Riser Phenex, a fate she manages to avoid thanks to her Peerage's victory in a Rating Game.
  • Berserk Button: As per canon, a good way to piss off Rias is to hurt a member of her peerage.
  • Boobs of Steel: She has the biggest bust of the entire cast (perhaps only rivaled by Momo's) and is also the most powerful devil of the entire group.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Doesn't like it when other girls get close to Izuku (particularly when they aren't the ones in her peerage).
  • Fiery Redhead: She doesn't seem like it, but when angered she can easily go off like a volcano.
  • First Kiss: Gives hers to Izuku in Chapter 18.
  • Genre Savvy: She records the fight between Hatsume and Bakugo knowing that the former would humiliate the latter. She was spot on.
  • Got Me Doing It: Her reaction when she realizes that she's picking up Izuku's habits, like mumbling or taking notes.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Her love for hugging her Peerage keeps her doing this to them. She deliberately uses this on Izuku as part of her teasing.
  • Naked Apron: In Chapter 30, she decides to join Ibara and Ochako when they are doing this.
  • Naked First Impression: While her first meeting with Izuku happens while he observes several heroes, the first time they actually talk to each other she's completely naked.
  • Occidental Otaku: She's a fan of Japanese culture and loves the present Izuku, Ibara and Ochako get for her - a set of figurines from one of her favorite series.
  • Secret Keeper: Knows that Izuku is the Ninth Torchbearer of One for All as of Chapter 35, which only Momo and Kyoka know about.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Tells Izuku he can look at her all he wants while she is naked, offers to bathe with him, repeatedly takes off her clothes to sleep with him, joins Ibara and Ochako when they try the Naked Apron approach, and takes notes on buying a cheerleader outfit and taking belly dancing and pole dancing lessons when she sees Izuku's reaction to the 1-A and 1-B girls wearing cheerleader outfits.
  • Sleeps in the Nude: As is in canon so does she here, even inspiring Ibara and Ochako to get in on it like she does Asia in canon DxD.
  • Team Mom: She will do everything in her hand if her Peerage has trouble, and helps Izuku (and the others) train so they can become Pro Heroes.
  • The Tease: One of her favorite things to do to Izuku.

    Kiba Yuuto 

Kiba Yuuto

Quirk: Unnamed gravitational orientation change Quirk

Sacred Gear: Sword Birth

Role: Knight

Species: Human (formerly) / Reincarnated Devil

U.A. Class Status: 1-C General Studies Class

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_2670.jpeg

Taciturn, reserved, yet happy to help. These words can describe Yuuto quite fine, but there's more to him than what he shows to the world. Rias' knight, he's the first member of her Peerage and her most veteran fighter. He currently attends U.A. as part of the General Studies course.

His Quirk allows him to alter his gravitational orientation, allowing him to walk up a wall or upside down. His Sacred Gear, "Sword Birth", lets him create swords of different types and attributes according to his will, which has recently upgraded into being able to mix holy and devil power within. Finally, he has the Knight piece, which grants him great speed and agility while making him easier to bring down.


  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Yuuto has a Quirk that allows him to change his gravitational orientation, but only when walking on a surface (like a wall).
  • Almighty Janitor: A Master Swordsman with a Knight piece and a Balance Breaker has to be this when he chose to be a General Studies student. He also chose to not take part in the U.A. Sports Festival just because he wants the others to have their limelight.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He was part of a group of children that had been raised to be able to wield Excalibur, only for the man in charge of the program to decide to have them all killed when none of them showed the ability to do so. Yuuto was the only known survivor of that massacre (Tosca's survival - or that of her HADXD equivalent - has yet to be confirmed).
  • Master Swordsman: He was trained by one of the best, and he doesn't disappoint.
  • Ship Tease: After the fight with Kokabiel, he gets a bit of this with Tsubaki.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Compared to some of the other members of the Occult Research Club (who are, outside Ibara and Jiro, powerhouses) Yuuto only relies on his swordsmanship and speed.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: His Sword of the Betrayer, which combines holy and demonic magic.

    Toujou Koneko 

Toujou Koneko

Role: Rook

Species: Reincarnated Devil

U.A. Class Status: 3rd-Year Middle School

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_94657.jpeg

Aloof and quiet, Koneko is the youngest member of Rias' Peerage, but that doesn't keep her from actually being the strongest. She currently attends U.A.'s new Junior High School.

Her only power is the Rook piece, which grants her enormous strength and endurance in exchange of losing agility. If canon remains accurate, she can also use the powers of a Nekoshou Nekomata, but chooses not to due to her dislike of them.


  • Animal Motifs: Cats. She's aloof, only gets affectionate with those she considers worthy of it, her familiar is a cat, and wears a pair of cat-shaped hair decorators. If going by canon, she is a Nekoshou Nekomata, but this truth isn't revealed yet to the rest of the ORC.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Technically this, as the youngest and smallest of the ORC at the beginning of the story.
  • Badass Adorable: She's tiny and cute - but cross her and she will kick your ass.
  • Big Eater: Can eat the Cosmic Tower Burger in twenty minutes and then ask for dessert!
  • Moe She knows she's this and is willing to use it.
  • The Quiet One: She does not speak much.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: She is the ORC's strongest member in terms of physical power.

    Shiozaki Ibara 

Shiozaki Ibara

Quirk: Vines

Sacred Gear: Twilight Healing

Role: Bishop

Species: Human (formerly) / Reincarnated Devil

U.A. Class Status: 1-B Hero Class

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ibara_shiozaki_anime.png
Click here to see her hero costume 

A former nun and Holy Maiden that was excommunicated for healing a devil, fate brought her to Musutafu, where she meets Izuku. His efforts to save her from the manipulations of Raynare seem for naught after she is mortally wounded, but when Ibara requests the chance to live with Izuku Rias answers by granting her reincarnation as her second Bishop. Joining U.A.'s Hero Class, she trains to become a Hero worthy of the name.

Her Quirk, "Vines", turns her hair into long, thorny vines that she can extend and control at will. Her Sacred Gear, "Twilight Healing", allows her to heal anyone of most wounds they may have suffered. As for her Bishop piece, it empowers her ability to use magic.


  • Adaptational Badass: Ibara can fight using her Quirk and knows how to use magic to defend herself.
  • Back from the Dead: Was killed by Raynare, but fortunately Rias revived her.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Hates it when Izuku gets close to (or attracts the attention of) another pretty girl.
  • Composite Character: Ibara combines her canon self with Asia Argento's background and Sacred Gear.
  • Covert Pervert: She isn't above naked bathing with Izuku, taking off her clothes while sleeping with him, or wearing a Naked Apron.
  • Healing Hands: Thanks to Twilight Healing.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She jumped in front of an attack Raynare had thrown at Izuku, mortally wounding her. The only reason she's still alive is thanks to Rias reviving her as a Bishop. She also takes the bullet to protect Rias from Riser Phenex's fire, although fortunately, she can walk out of that.
  • Lethal Chef: The one time she cooked at House Midoriya, she somehow burned the juice. She's slowly learning out of this thanks to Rias and Inko.
  • Martial Pacifist: Does not like to fight, but will if she has to protect people.
  • Naked Apron: Does this along with Ochako in Chapter 30 on Aika's suggestion.
  • Rescue Romance: Falls in love with Izuku after he fought to rescue her from Raynare and her minions.

    Uraraka Ochako 

Uraraka Ochako

Quirk: Zero Gravity

Role: Rook

Species: Half-Human, Half-Witch (formerly) / Reincarnated Devil

U.A. Class Status: 1-A Hero Class

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uraraka.png
Click here to see her hero costume 

Outgoing, cheerful and optimistic, Ochako befriends Izuku when they are both training for U.A.'s Entrance Exam. After learning about the supernatural world, she finds out that her mother is a witch, and she has inherited her magical power. After some time as her former babysitter Mizu's apprentice, she becomes Rias' second Rook, getting fully immersed in the many events surrounding both worlds.

Her Quirk is "Zero Gravity", which allows her to make any object she touches unaffected by gravity. Her Rook piece, meanwhile, grants her superhuman strength in exchange of losing speed, and she can also use magic.


  • Adaptational Badass: While Zero Gravity already made her good, learning how to use magic gives her a wider range of skills, while her Devil Rook powers give her high levels of physical power.
  • Blush Stickers: Much like Izuku's Youthful Freckles, this is something she keeps from canon.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Like the other girls in Izuku's harem, she is not keen on other girls doing anything potentially romantic with him. This leads to her losing the fight against Tsuyu, because she gets so flustered from her declared attraction to Izuku that she doesn't use Zero Gravity on her even though she's grabbed Tsuyu's tongue.
  • Combo Platter Powers: She has Zero Gravity, magic, and her Devil Rook powers at her disposal.
  • Decomposite Character: The reason she's this and not a Composite Character is because the author has confirmed that Rossweisse (who was Rias' second Rook in canon) will be in the harem.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: She accidentally takes a door off the hinges trying to get used to her Rook strength, and later on she completely crushes the grip tester from the Quirk assessment test, which was rated to stand up to more than a ton of force.
  • Gravity Master: Her Quirk lets her remove an object's gravity, although overdoing it can cause her to be sickened.
  • Magic Knight: She has the strength of a Rook and the magical power of a witch.
  • Mighty Glacier: Her Rook powers turn her into this, making her physically stronger while sacrificing some speed. This loss of speed and a lapse of combat judgment cost her against Tsuyu in the tournament.
  • Naked Apron: Does this along with Ibara in Chapter 30.
  • Super Strength: Part and parcel of her Rook power. During the grip test, she destroys the grip tester (which was designed to resist a grip of more than a ton), and when she tosses the ball she is said to use an underpowered toss, yet she still reaches infinity.

    Yaoyorozu Momo 

Yaoyorozu Momo

Quirk: Creation

Role: Queen

Species: Human half-Fallen Angel (formerly) / Reincarnated Devil

U.A. Class Status: 1-A Hero Class

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c_chara_main10_1.png
Click here to see her hero costume 

A gentle and intelligent young lady Izuku befriends after becoming a devil. It turns out that she knows a lot more about the world hidden behind the Masquerade than she initially lets on, given her knowledge of (and hatred for) Fallen Angels. She ends up requesting Rias to reincarnate her as a devil, which she does by turning her into her Queen.

Her primary Quirk, "Creation", allows her to create any inorganic object she can think of, as long as she knows its atomic composition, by using her lipids as fuel for the change, but she also has a secondary Quirk that allows her to shoot lightning and control electromagnetic fields. Meanwhile her Queen piece grants her the strengths of the Rook, Knight, and Bishop pieces.


  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Her canon self is a girl who lives with both her parents and loves them both. Her status as Akeno's stand-in turns this into an antagonistic relationship with her father because he was not there when her mother was killed by her own relatives.
  • Adaptational Badass: Even before becoming a devil, Momo can throw lightning around and use that to control magnetic fields, Mikoto Misaka-style, due to her Fallen Angel ancestry.
    • Initially, All Might gave her One for All, but the author chose to Retcon this since she already had a lot of power between her Creation Quirk, her Shock and Awe powers, and her reincarnation as a Devil Queen.
  • Adaptational Curves: While Momo was already well figured for a girl her age in her source material, her Fallen Angel heritage lets her rival Rias's 99cm bust.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: It's never stated what gender, if any, Momo is attracted to in canon. Here she begins the story in a relationship with Kyouka, while she clearly grows attracted to Izuku.
  • Boobs of Steel: One of the bustiest members of the cast, easily rivaling Rias, and one of the strongest members of both the Occult Research Club and 1-A.
  • Composite Character: Momo takes Akeno's place as Rias' Queen, her powers of lightning, BDSM tendencies, and backstory as the daughter of a Fallen Angel she is estranged with.
    • Meanwhile, she (with Kyouka's help) becomes the one that cleans up Dagobah Beach instead of Izuku. Initially, this was tied up with her becoming the Ninth Bearer of One for All, but a Retcon changed this to a challenge by Rias so she would make Momo her Queen.
  • Covert Pervert:
    • Unlike Akeno, Momo has yet to fully embrace her BDSM side and is a little ashamed of it. She ends up getting carried away when Rias orders her to spank Kiba as part of his punishment.
    • Similarly, she's a bit shocked when she starts to have fun dropping sensuous comments into Izuku's ear.
  • Irony: Is a Lethal Chef despite the requirements of her Quirk necessitating that she have a firm grasp of chemistry and molecular structures.
  • Legacy Character: She is this In-Universe, as her mother was a Pro Hero named Creati.
  • Lethal Chef: She once nearly killed Jiro's father with her cooking, and Izuku's attempt to eat a chocolate that she makes doesn't even make it into his mouth before he passes out, requiring Ibara to use Twilight Healing for an hour and a half non-stop, and even then he loses his sense of taste for a week. She's unanimously banned from unsupervised cooking by the rest of the ORC after that.
  • Secret Keeper: After being saved by All Might, she found out about his injuries. She also knows that All Might has chosen Izuku as his successor.
  • Shock and Awe: She can shoot lightning from her hands due to her father being a Fallen Angel.
  • The Tease: Has started to take a page out of Rias's book with teasing Izuku.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Knocks out Monoma with a bat she creates when he starts mocking Kyoka.

    Jiro Kyoka

A girl with an interest in music that Izuku meets shortly after he becomes a devil. As Momo's closest friend, she knows much about her secrets and her past. While she remains associated with Rias and her peerage, she is still a normal Quirked human.

Her Quirk, "Earphone Jack", turns her earlobes into extensible earphone jacks that she can use to attack people or transmit the sound of her heartbeat with great power into whatever she stabs with them.


  • Adaptational Sexuality: It's never confirmed what gender, if any, Kyoka is attracted to in canon. In this story, she's in an established relationship with Momo at the beginning of the story and grows attracted to Izuku.
  • Boxing Battler: She knows how to box, and uses it quite well when sparring with Hyde. Justified as her support items are attached to her legs thus leaving her with her arms as her only source of melee combat.
  • Covert Pervert: It's noted that she would love to see Rias in a tennis outfit, and has a Nosebleed when she sees her in a rather revealing swimsuit.
  • Dope Slap: Uses her earphone jacks to shock Kaminari and Mineta whenever they let their pervert tendencies out.
  • Secret Keeper: After being saved by All Might, she found out about his injuries. She is also one for Momo's Fallen Angel heritage and her mother's status as a Pro Hero.
  • Token Human: Until Hyde joined, she was the only human member of the Occult Research Club, with her only pre-UA connection to the supernatural being her relationship with Momo.

    Ravel Phenex 

Ravel Phenex

Role: Bishop

Species: Pure-Blooded Devil

U.A. Class Status: 3rd-year Middle School

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_8793.jpeg
The only daughter of the Phenex Family, she served as Bishop to her brother Riser until the Rating Game between his and Rias Gremory's Peerages, whereupon she transfers into her mother's Peerage and later enrolls U.A.'s Junior High, where she shares classes with Koneko.
  • Animal Jingoism: She has a bird motif, Koneko has a cat motif. It is rare if they get along.
  • Animal Motifs: The phoenix, which fits her surname.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: While Izuku and the others also meet her first during the Rating Game, she ends up enrolling into U.A.'s middle school much sooner than her canon self did to Kuoh Academy.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She was only a heel in terms of rivalry due to her being part of Riser's Peerage, but after this, she transfers to her mother's peerage and manages to join U.A.'s middle school and the Occult Research Club.
  • Properly Paranoid: She doesn't fully trust Hyde and suspects he's hiding something. She's right.

Kido Hyde

Sacred Gear: Void Red

Species: Human

U.A. Class Status: 1-A Hero Class

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_4501.png

One of Izuku's classmates in U.A.'s Class 1-A, he quickly shows to be a dependable fighter. However, unknown to everyone else, he is attending U.A. as part of a plan aimed at saving someone dear to him. After finding himself at the wrong place and time and helping the Occult Research Club stop Kokabiel's mad plans, he joins the ORC. He may also be infiltrating the ORC for his own purposes.


  • An Arm and a Leg: He manages to obliterate Kokabiel's arm.
  • Casting a Shadow: His Sacred Gear's main power. These shadows are even able to eat the light of an Excalibur.
  • Cool Sword: Void Red manifests as a sword called the Insulator and is considered a Longinus-level Sacred Gear.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Skilled with the sword. Yep. Hand to hand? Not so much. Kyoka easily beats him in a Quirk-free spar.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite his punk appearance and abilities based around darkness, he's a pretty nice guy.
  • Master Swordsman: He can summon a sword and fight very finely with it.
  • The Mole: Ultimately answers to the black knight the ORC faced before.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Not to the extent of Bakugo, but Hyde has a pretty foul mouth.
  • Spanner in the Works: Stops Mineta from hitching a ride on Momo in the Obstacle Course.
  • Token Human: Hyde is a fully human Occult Research Club member like Jiro but unlike her, he is an Action Survivor of the supernatural world.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: In a sense. While he is good with a sword, he himself admits that his Sacred Gear has a mind of its own and thus somewhat uncontrollable. Plus he sucks at hand to hand. But his Sacred Gear and the Insulator are so dangerous that they balance this out, evident in how he was the only one to do any significant damage to Kokabiel and came very close to killing him.
  • Weapon Wields You: He himself has admitted that his Insulator has a mind of its own.

    Kudelia Dantalion 

President Kudelia Dantalion

Role: King

Species: Pure-Blooded Devil

U.A. Class Status: 3rd Year General Studies

A fellow devil heir and third-year General Studies student, Kudelia is old friends of Rias and Sona. Happy-go-lucky and somewhat irreverent, there is much about her that remains unknown.


  • Deadpan Snarker: Has a great moment when Principal Nezu calls her, Rias, and Sona to his office. She believes that Nezu is onto them, but Sona replies he probably wants to speak about their clubs. The moment the three enter his office, Nezu shows them the footage on the fight with Kokabiel.
  • Hidden Depths: While normally pretty jovial, she got oddly bitter when Rias brought up the concept of quality over quantity, specifically towards the idea that Rias has all the power she'd need as the 'Crimson Haired Princess of Ruin', suggesting she may have a sense of inferiority towards stronger devils than herself.
    • She also took Milia in after the latter's parents' death and helped her while she was in the depths of her depression.
  • Lazy Alias: At school, she goes by Kudelia Dantarion, just a one letter difference, which Izuku mentally lampshades.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: When she meets Izuku, one of the first things she does is to get well into his personal space - as in, right in front of his face. She also makes a blatant attempt to grope him.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Is described as both tall and curvy.
  • The Tease: Teasingly offers Izuku the chance to have some "alone" time with her and attempts to grope him. She later admits to Sona that she's got a crush on him.
  • Weather Manipulation: Kudelia can manipulate and conjure storms as offensive weapons.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is described as a pale blue-silver color.

Click here to see her hero costume 

One of Izuku's middle school classmates, she is, unknown to most people, a devil, and part of Kudelia Dantalion's Peerage as her Bishop. She also has a big crush on Izuku, one that only he does not know about. Joins U.A.'s Hero Course by taking part in the Entrance Exam, but ends up in Class 1-B.

Due to her human heritage, she has a Quirk, "Spearfinger", which allows her to enlarge and toughen up her nails enough they can cut through metal.


  • Absolute Cleavage: Her Hero costume shows a rather impressive amount of cleavage, going down to her navel.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: One of the reasons she fell in love with Izuku was that, when she once broke down out of school over the reminder of not having a family, he took her to a coffee shop and spoke with her to get her out of her funk.
  • Broken Bird: Before meeting Izuku, she was a wreck because of Sieg murdering her parents apparently right in front of her, to the point that if Kudelia hadn't taken her as a favor to her mother, she believes that she'd probably be on the streets, and she needed to be reminded to eat and go to school on occasion. She's more upbeat now, but talking about what happened to them briefly reduces her to a sobbing wreck.
  • Clark Kent Outfit: Her school uniform hides quite the impressive bust.
  • Covert Pervert: When Izuku accidentally rubs his head on her boobs, she admits (to herself) that she really enjoyed it.
  • Goggles Do Something Unusual: Her mask has built-in lenses to compensate for her poor eyesight in costume.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Her father was human, which is why she has a Quirk.
  • Meganekko: She's a nice girl who wears glasses.
  • Only Friend: At their middle school, she was pretty much Izuku's one friend.
  • Shout-Out: Her Quirk is similar to Lust's power while her hero costume takes cues from Morrigan Aensland and Wiz.
    • The physical description of her given in chapter one (as well as the image shown above) seems to be based heavily (apart from the glasses) on Kurumu Kurono, another succubus girl who can enlarge her nails into claws.
  • Wolverine Claws: Her Quirk allows her to enlarge her nails and use them as weapons.

Behind an alien-like appearance lies an emotional and excitable girl who can produce corrosive liquid through her skin thanks to her Quirk, "Acid": she can manipulate the pH and viscosity of the fluid, but going too far can damage her skin.


  • Acid Attack: Her Quirk. She can control the pH and viscosity of the fluid she secretes from her skin, meaning it can be highly acidic and thick or barely acidic and slippery.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Her skin is bright pink as a result of acid buildup.
  • Covert Pervert: Wouldn't mind destroying her clothes to get out of Todoroki's ice, thus giving everyone in the stadium a clear look at her body... if Mineta wasn't there to perv on her.
  • Color Character: Pink as her appearance and hero name (the second one anyway) makes abundantly clear.
  • Cute Monster Girl: An attractive, female humanoid... something.
  • Genki Girl: She's cheerful and emotional.
  • Required Secondary Powers: She has an acquired resistance to acid, but she is not immune to it.
  • The Tease: Likes teasing Izuku, mainly by glomping him and pressing her body against his.

The scion of the Iida family of Heroes, he's incredibly uptight and has the highest expectations for himself and his peers. He and Izuku get off on the wrong foot when they get into a spat just before the U.A. Entrance Exam, but they become friends when classes start. His Quirk, "Engine", gives him literal engines in his legs that grant him Super Speed.


  • Big Brother Worship: He admires his older brother Tensei as the ideal Hero and wants to follow in his footsteps. Izuku notes that it's similar to how Rias views her brother, though she's more annoyed by her brother's antics.
  • Comically Serious: As in canon so is he here. Though sometimes his over-seriousness does come off as grating rather than comedic.
  • Heroic Build: He's especially tall and broad-shouldered for his age, having trained for years to become a Hero as the latest in the Iida family line.
  • Heroic Lineage: His family has been in the Hero business for generations and are famous for their Super Speed.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Momo defeats him by creating an oil slick, which he hits so fast that, by the time he can stop, he's out of bounds.

Energetic, somewhat dim-witted and slightly perverted, he wields the Quirk "Electrification", which lets him emit high amounts of electricity near him, but he can barely wield it properly and going over his limit backfires on him by temporarily rendering him an idiot.


  • Demoted to Extra: He isn't recruited by Todoroki in the Cavalry Battle and thus does not advance to the third round.
  • Elemental Hair Colors: Blond-haired and lightning-focused.
  • Failed a Spot Check: One of the only three students who didn't know of Todoroki's gender before the Sports Festival.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Is jealous of Izuku because of how many beautiful girls are attracted to him, and demands to know how he does it.
  • Meaningful Name: His first name means "electricity" and his last name means "lightning".
  • Shock and Awe: His Quirk lets him emit intense amounts of electricity, but he can't control where it goes, it's mostly limited to an area around him, and his brain is short-circuited if he goes overboard.

Class 1-A's friendliest and most Hot-Blooded member, he is always working to become 'manlier' and a better hero. His Quirk, "Hardening", allows him to make his body more resistant to any type of attack.


  • Bash Brothers: Develops this dynamic with Tetsutetsu due to their similar Quirks.
  • Boring, but Practical: His Quirk just makes his skin incredibly hard and resistant, but given that Hero fights tend to get close and personal, it is very useful.
  • Fiery Redhead: A redhead who is one of the most excitable members of the class.
  • Nice Guy: He is friendly to everyone, even Bakugo, who constantly blows him off.

    Liana Kozuki 

Liana Kozuki

Quirk: Demonic Bone

Species: Human

U.A. Class Status: 1-A Hero Class

An intelligent and serious student. Her Quirk, "Demonic Bone", allows her to grow, create, control, and alter the bones in her arms, using them to create weapons and shields.


  • The Ace: Is easily one of the most skilled and intelligent students in 1-A, and comes in second on the test on the first day after Momo. It comes having Zero and Guren, two high-ranking Pro Heroes, as parents, apparently.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Is able to figure out that Izuku's "Dragon Force" power isn't a Quirk based on a few context clues (such as Aizawa being unable to erase it) and Izuku calling it a 'power'.
  • Blessed with Suck: Chapter 35 reveals that using her Quirk hurts every single time, and her arms are covered in faint scars from using it. Chapter 37 later reveals that overusing her Quirk causes her arms to stiffen and lock up.
  • Boobs of Steel: Described as having breasts around the size of Momo's and a skilled, powerful Quirk combatant often in the midst of brawls between Izuku, Bakugo, and Todoroki and competing on their level.
  • Book Worm: Is often reading a book before class starts.
  • Bust-Contrast Duo: Liana is a lot more reserved than her outgoing sister.
  • Covered in Scars: They're faint and only visible up close, but Liana's arms are covered in them from using her Quirk.
  • Covert Pervert: While she was mad at first after Izuku accidentally groped her, she later realizes that she kind of liked it.
  • Crush Blush: Blushes when she realizes that she thinks that Izuku is cute.
  • Heroic Lineage: It's implied a few times that her parents are rather well-known in the hero community.
    • Chapter 33 reveals that her parents are the fourth and fifth rated heroes, Zero and Guren.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: Although she was initially mad when Izuku accidentally groped her during their fight, she wasn't nearly as mad as she would have been if someone else, like Mineta, had done it, and even admits to herself later that she kind of liked it.
  • Large Ham: Inherited this trait from her father. Just look at how she greeted Iida during the Heroes Vs Villains Exercise.
    Liana: "Took you long enough, hero. The stage has been set and the act has already started. This is the end!"
  • Mundane Utility: Her bone spurs can be used to avoid the press via stealthily pole vaulting over fences to avoid them.
  • Nerves of Steel: She apparently undergoes a lot of pain whenever she uses her Quirk.
  • Not So Above It All: Cynthia can make her a lot more flustered than she normally presents herself out of embarrassment.
  • Only Sane Man: She's one of the few to point out how suspect the pervert trio's "reminder" of a supposed cheerleading contest none of the girls has actually heard about before is. Unfortunately, the other girls overpower her before she can check with the teachers.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Offers to teach Izuku how to play chess, and a later chapter has them playing together. Given who her father is, a fondness for chess was hardly unexpected.

  • Animal Motifs: He is compared to octopi due to his Quirk.
  • Combat Tentacles: Uses them to replicate parts of his body.
  • Cool Mask: The lower half of his face is always covered by a sort of ninja mask.
  • Creepy Good: His appearance seems quite creepy, but he is one of Class 1-A's nicest students.
  • Gentle Giant: He is the tallest Class 1-A student, and also one of the nicest.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Not only does he have six arms, but he can also transform those arms into other body parts like mouths, ears, or eyes.

Class 1-A's resident Chuunibyou, his head makes him look like a raven. His Quirk, "Dark Shadow", manifests as a shadowy monster that inhabits his body, and which he can summon to fight on his behalf.


  • Chuunibyou: He usually speaks in antiquated speech patterns.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His Quirk is a living shadow and he looks like a blackbird, but he is definitely on the side of good.
  • Demoted to Extra: He isn't recruited by Izuku in the cavalry battle and thus does not advance to the third round.

    Todoroki Shoto 

Todoroki Shoto/Shoko

Quirk: Half-Cold, Half-Hot

Species: Human

U.A. Class Status: 1-A Hero Class

One of 1-A's two recommended students and the son of the Number Two Hero, Endeavor. His Quirk, "Half-Cold and Half-Hot", lets him emit incredible ice from his right side and searing flames from his left. However, he has vowed to never use his flames as a form of rebellion against his father, who raised him for the sole purpose of surpassing All Might. "He" is actually a girl, but for some reason presents herself as a boy.


  • Abusive Parents: He hates his father with a burning passion for the Training from Hell he put him through and the heaps of abuse and neglect he heaped on his wife and other children.
  • The Ace: Todoroki boasts the highest raw power of anyone in Class 1-A and is one of the two students who got in via recommendation. This makes Sona seriously consider recruiting Todoroki.
  • Ambiguous Gender Identity: In-Universe Endeavor can only make an educated guess as to why she chose to attend school as a boy (though he did inform the teachers), and when her gender is exposed at the Sports Festival some of the spectators wonder if she's trans, or if she simply prefers being a boy.
  • An Ice Person: Out of spite for his father, he only uses this part of his Quirk. Even then, he can do a lot of things with it (such as increasing his mobility with ice slides) and is one of the two students in 1-A to get in by recommendation.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: His fire comes out of his red-haired left side and his ice comes out of his white-haired right side.
  • Bishōnen: His appearance is this. Mostly because Shoto is female.
  • Broken Ace: He's possibly the most powerful Class 1-A student, skilled and intelligent, but thanks to his father he has No Social Skills and a lot of emotional baggage.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Can control both ice and fire, although he refuses to use the latter for personal reasons.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Between his abusive father and the incident that gave him his scar, it's easy to say that Shoto has this cornered.
  • Female Misogynist: Downplayed, but Endeavor believes that her decision to attend U.A. as a boy is because the incident with her mother caused her to develop a fear and dislike of other girls, and a desire to not be seen as female herself. She's better than she was before, but for a while she wasn't even comfortable around her own sister.
  • Freudian Slip: Lets slip that she's a girl when she uses the word "daughter" when describing the incident that scarred her face to Izuku.
  • Gender Flip: Chapter 35 reveals that Shoto is actually a girl.
  • Innocent Fanservice: Has no problem with undoing her top to show Izuku her gender.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Apparently, almost no one (Mineta, Kaminari, and Izuku excluded) in 1-A was fooled by her disguise, seeing how the clues left behind in Foreshadowing in the main page were just too obvious to ignore.
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: His father put Shoto through Training from Hell ever since his Quirk manifested, which has put him in the running for Class 1-A's most powerful student, but as a consequence, he is left with No Social Skills.
  • Scars Are Forever: The one over his left eye has been there for a decade already.
  • Strong and Skilled: His superb control over his ice makes him a very tough enemy - as the villains attacking him during the USJ incident learned.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: For unknown reasons, she masquerades as a boy at U.A., although the teachers know her real gender. As does most of 1-A - the only ones that didn't know were Izuku, Kaminari and Mineta.

A bubbly and cheerful girl whose Quirk, "Invisibility", renders her entire body permanently invisible. She is usually seen as a set of seemingly floating clothes — or in the case of her hero costume, just a pair of floating gloves and shoes. Because of this, she often jokes about her condition and is able to get away with states of undress no visible human could dream of trying in public.

Click here to see his hero costume 

Izuku's former Childhood Friend and long-time bully. Bakugou has it all: athleticism, great grades, and an extremely powerful Quirk called "Explosion", which lets him turn the sweat his hands expel into nitroglycerin, allowing him 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.


  • The Ace: He has it all: the brains, the athleticism, and the Quirk needed to get into the best Hero school in the country. Too bad he doesn't have the personality to match.
  • The Bully: He was Izuku's main bully for most of their lives.
  • Cluster Bleep-Bomb: Mei activates a censor "baby" during their fight, and this is predictably the result.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He's prone to exploding (literally and metaphorically) whenever someone says something unflattering about him. After he tries to attack Mei after she defeats him by ring out during the Sports Festival Arc, Nezu makes it a point to tell him that he has to see Hound Dog to work on his anger issues, and if he attacks another student outside of training one more time, he's going to be expelled.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Mei defeats him because he's going so fast when she traps him in a capture net that he ends up going out of bounds.
  • Near-Death Experience: He nearly dies when Freed Sellzen shoots him several times but is saved in the nick of time by a mysterious man, implied to be Azazel, that heals his injuries. This experience is why he told Izuku "he knows".
  • The Nicknamer: Since he doesn't really bother remembering people's names, he gives them nicknames based on either their appearance or Quirk. He can't even remember Izuku's real name even though he's known him pretty much since they were born.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: Inverted, Bakugo was the absolute top of Aldera Junior High, but coming into U.A., he finds that there are people who are better trained, have equal or greater Quirks or other supernatural abilities camouflaged as such, access to better training resources or all of the above dropping him down to constantly being fifth-best in tests and assessments.
  • Oh, Crap!: Had a pretty major moment during the Heroes Vs Villains Exercise, both from being bested by Izuku and from seeing what Shoto and Liana could do. However, he swore to surpass them and gain the Number One Hero spot regardless.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: Learns why Todoroki goes out as a boy when eavesdropping on Izuku and Todoroki's conversation in Chapter 35.
  • The Seven Deadly Sins:
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: It's Bakugo, so of course he'll swear whenever he can.

  • Irony: Had planned to deliberately lose against Bakugo after showing off her "babies", but his fury causes him to accidentally throw himself out of bounds when he gets caught in a capture net. Then, her fight with Todoroki ends before she can begin her pitching.

A former Japanese Pro Hero, the second youngest in history at 19, and also Ochako's old babysitter. After suffering a devastating injury that forced her out of the Hero career, Ochako's mom suggested her to go to Katmandu, where she managed to join Kamar-Taj and became the Sorcerer Supreme's apprentice. She returns to Japan following the theft of several of Kamar-Taj's relics and requests Rias' aid to retrieve them, which allows her to reconnect with Ochako and become her teacher.

  • Affectionate Nickname: She calls Ochako "Chako", who calls her "Mizu-oneechan".
  • Combo Platter Powers: Her Quirk gives her plasma-based abilities, she's a powerful sorcerer, and her Kamar-Taj relic is a sword that has ice abilities.
  • Cool Teacher: She's a very good teacher, helping her students learn how to fight without their Quirks.
  • Game-Breaking Injury: Several years before the story, she suffered an injury that forced her into retirement.
  • The Mentor: To Ochako, who is learning the mechanisms of magic through her.
  • Oh, Crap!: A justifiable reaction when she found out that Principal Nezu has a recording of the fight against Kokabiel.
  • Took a Level in Badass: While she was already awesome as a Hero before being forced to retire, learning how to use magic made her a lot more powerful.

Quirk: Erasure

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 dry eyes.


  • Adaptational Wimp: Downplayed. While Aizawa himself is not weaker, the addition of non-quirk powers results in his Erasure becoming more of a Situational Sword.
  • Brutal Honesty: 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.
  • Friendly Rivalry: Has one with Vlad, though the latter takes it more seriously than Aizawa.
  • No-Sell: His Quirk doesn't seem to work on Sacred Gears or other supernatural powers.

The Symbol of Peace
Click here to see his real self post-injury. 

Japan's Greatest Hero, the Symbol of Peace, and Izuku's lifelong idol. His true identity is Yagi Toshinori, which only a select few people know. Years prior to the main story, Toshinori suffered an injury that took out most of his internal organs. As a result, he's slowly being unable to continue as a Hero, as such he's begun to look for a successor, becoming a teacher at U.A. to find one.

"One for All", the Quirk he inherited, allows him to stockpile an enormous amount of raw power, allowing him to significantly enhance all of his physical abilities to a superhuman level. This results in unbelievable levels of strength, speed, agility, and durability that make All Might nearly invincible.


  • Broken Ace: He's Japan's Number One Hero, but for the past five years he has suffered an injury that severely restrains his ability to be a hero. He is currently seeking a successor that can take the mantle of One for All - and has his sight set on Izuku whom he succeeds in Passing the Torch to.
  • In Spite of a Nail: He passes One For All to Izuku despite the fact that the latter wasn't involved in the Sludge Villain Incident.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: Strongly suspected that the ORC was full of Devils, having been approached by so many that he's learned to spot them. He didn't know for certain until Nezu recorded their fight against Kokabiel, though, and he reveals his knowledge to Izuku after giving him One for All.

Flame Hero

Todoroki's father, and the Number Two Pro-Hero, who has a deep envy of All Might.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: He seems to have started to realize how badly his ambitions have affected his family earlier than canon, given his talk with Izuku before his and Shoko's match. He also was the one who talked with Shoko's teachers so she could go to school as a boy.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Although he's a bit abrasive about it, he has a legitimate point not only about how Shoko not using her flame is holding her back, but that she cannot hide her true gender forever. Indeed, not long after he talks to Izuku about this, Clothing Damage from the last explosive clash of Izuku and Shoko's match exposes her breast in public, and most of 1-A had already figured it out (save Mineta and Kaminari, ironically enough), having kept quiet out of politeness.
  • Open-Minded Parent: Downplayed, as although Endeavor believes that Shoto is unable to hide the fact that she's actually a girl and not a guy forever and thinks she should "stop pretending soon", he respects her decision to pass off as one enough to inform people like school officials to refer to her as one.

  • Spanner in the Works: Became one in the fic's version of the Diabolos of the Old School Building arc in two ways. First by getting Freed to reveal where Ibara is located and second by using his Sacred Gear to sabotage the transfer ritual.

  • Adaptational Modesty: She never wears the Stripperific outfit she transformed into in the anime. She merely reveals a pair of black wings like in the original Light Novel and Manga.
  • Berserk Button: When Milia states she thinks Raynare's bust is artificial, Raynare really loses it.
  • Cassandra Truth: Is in denial when Kokabiel reveals that he's her father.
  • Cruel Mercy: Rias spares her partially because, since she went against orders, her own faction is out for her guts as well, and they'll probably be capable of something much worse than anything they could do.
  • Enemy Mine: Ends up working along with his previous victims in order to defeat Kokabiel.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Thanks to not manipulating Izuku's emotions as much as she did with Issei in canon, Rias actually spares her.
  • The Worf Effect: Is this to prove how strong and dangerous Mori is.

  • Animal Motifs: Dogs. One of his many dog-related nicknames is 'the Rabid Dog of the Mafia' and Rashomon vaguely looks like a wild dog. Ironically, he hates dogs.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Comes very close to taking Xenovia's leg and succeeded in taking part of Izuku's dragon wing.
  • Calling Your Attacks: His Rashomon has at least 5 different techniques, each deadlier than the other.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied. He apparently joined the Port Mafia 6 years ago. Before that, he lived in the slums as a 'stray dog' before being found by Dazai, who gave him Training from Hell so bad that he regularly coughed blood during these sessions.
  • The Dreaded: Izuku has an Oh, Crap! when he recognizes him, for good reason.
  • Historical In-Joke:
    • His coughing is a reference to his real counterpart who suffered from pleurisy.
    • His disbelief in God references the real Akutagawa's banal relationship with religion, saying he can believe in the Devil, but not in God.
  • Nay-Theist: Claims to have never believed in God, despite working with a Fallen Angel.
  • Weak, but Skilled: His body is very frail and sickly, but his Quirk is terrifyingly versatile. This is evident in how he names his techniques like most Pro Heroes do.

Species: Human

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_696.png

Akutagawa's subordinate.


  • Adaptational Badass: In her canon, she hasn't unlocked her Ability yet, but here, while the same is true for her Sacred Gear, she also has a Quirk that lets her alter the trajectory of her bullets.
  • Badass Normal: In the same sense as Eraserhead. She can hold her own against supernatural enemies with just raw firepower.
  • Sempai/Kohai: She holds her Akutagawa-senpai in high regard, not only as her superior but as the man she loves.
  • Shout-Out: The author shamelessly admits that her Quirk was based off of Takehisa.

Church Exorcists

    Shidou Irina 

Shidou Irina

Quirk: Increased Flexibility

Species: Human

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/irina_new_5025.jpg

A young exorcist affiliated with the Catholic Church who is charged with the recovery of the stolen Excalibur swords. Izuku's childhood friend, she's dismayed to learn that he has become a devil, but is also glad to see that his willingness to become a hero has not been dampened.


  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: In canon, she wasn't around Kokabiel when he revealed that God is Dead. In this fic when she was able to continue fighting due to her having Hauteclare, she was.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Not Irina herself but her Cool Sword Hauteclere, this sword in canon appears some time after she became an angel yet it appears during the fight against Kokabiel.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Izuku calls (or called) her "Rinchan". Likewise, she calls Izuku "Zuku".
  • Childhood Friends: With Izuku.
  • Didn't See That Coming: She is surprised that despite Izuku being a devil he can hold (and by extension wield) Hauteclere without any ill effects.
  • First Kiss: Admits to Izuku in chapter 28 that she stole his first kiss while he was asleep before she left Japan, and then tries to use the distraction as an opening in their duel.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Wears her long hair in twin pigtails.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her Quirk is basically David Shield's Quirk, but giving her extra flexibility over her entire body rather than just her fingers. She puts it to good use as well, like escaping from Lailah's webbing.
  • Refuge in Audacity: When Rias' peerage goes to the airport to say goodbye and the girls are glaring at her when she's asked about the aforementioned First Kiss, she decides to go out with a blaze, snogs Izuku for a full minute while the girls suffer Color Failure and confirms that this was their second kiss before leaving to take her flight.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Izuku did not recognize her when he met her at his home because (a) it had been ten years since they last saw each other and (b) she is most definitely a really pretty girl. Even Inko admits that she had trouble recognizing her at first.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Being more flexible than a normal person isn't a particularly powerful or flashy Quirk, but she makes it work.

A renowned exorcist who travels the world trying to solve problems in which the Church is involved. When her charge Xenovia and her partner Irina are sent to Japan to solve the problem of the theft of the Excalibur swords, she goes along with them to help them and do her best to prevent another war from starting. Though she actually has another reason for going...


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Of a sort. Her hair color was never revealed in the Light Novels. Here her hair color is green, on the logic that Xenovia had to get the idea for her green fringe from somewhere.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: In the light novels she's introduced in the short story Love Song to the Reincarnated, which takes place between Volumes 13 and 14. Here she appears during the events of Volume 3.
  • Arch-Enemy: Has one in Lailah, an angel woman with a Spider People Quirk who captured her and tortured her for information, even killing her mentor a la Airachnid with Arcee and Tailgate.
  • Archer Archetype: She was a skilled holy sword wielder, even a candidate for wielding an Excalibur, but started using a bow instead after her torture at Lailah's hands.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Does her best to act like this to Irina and Xenovia, keeping them on-track to their mission.
  • Dope Slap: Has no problem in giving this to Xenovia (along with ear pulling) when she starts to stir trouble.
  • Famed in Story: She is quite famous among the supernatural community.
  • Hypocritical Humor: When she states that Midnight's attire is scandalous, Mizu fires back that hers is not exactly demure.
  • Light 'em Up: Her Quirk lets her create spheres of light that she can detonate like flashbangs with effort.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Reminds Irina and Xenovia that their task is not to confront the devils, and is willing to ask Rias if they can help. She also promises to help Milia make sure that Sieg pays for his murder of her parents.
  • Seen It All: When she hears about a vampire hypnotizing people to make dioramas in New Orleans, she mentions that it's not the oddest thing that she's ever dealt with.
  • You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!: Griselda was mortified that they find themselves in poverty due to the actions of Xenovia and Irina.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green in her case.

Freed Sellzen is a psychotic exorcist working for the fallen angels.


  • Ax-Crazy: To call him insane is a massive understatement.
  • Blood Knight: Freed may be an exorcist, but he doesn't give a flying crap about God. The only reason he's an exorcist is so he can kill devils (or anyone that tries to stop him, really) and slake his bloodlust.
  • Combat Pragmatist: When a fight begins to go against him, he has no problem in pulling out a handgun and blow several holes into his enemy, as Bakugo finds out.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Akutagawa pierces him multiple times with his blades. It is unknown if he has survived or not.

Kokabiel is a rogue member of the Grigori who wishes to restart the war between the Devils, Angels, and Fallen.


  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses his left arm because of Hyde. It didn't slow him down.
  • Asshole Victim: Considering that he tried to restart the Great War by attempting to kill Rias and revealed that God is Dead to break the morale of the heroes, our heroes would most likely not miss him if they knew about his fate. When the ORC find out about his death, they were more concerned about why he was killed and not about Kokabiel himself.

  • Death by Adaptation: Ends up being killed by a mysterious individual who appears to be behind his plot to restart the Great War.

All For One's student and technical leader of the League of Villains. Groomed by All For One to be his successor, Tomura seeks to destroy All Might and the Hero-obsessed society he helps to protect. His Quirk, "Decay", allows him to destroy anything he touches provided all five of his fingers are in contact with the object.


  • Cloudcuckoolander: Tends to frame everything in terms of video games.
  • Hidden Depths: Is familiar enough with the supernatural to recognize Izuku's Sacred Gear rather quickly.

    Kurogiri 

Kurogiri

Quirk: Warp Gate

Species: Human

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

A shadowy member of the League who acts as Shigaraki's guardian. His Quirk is "Warp Gate", and it allows him to create portals out of his shadowy figure.

Species: Human

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/muscular_ones_justice_2_render.png

A bloodthirsty veteran villain. His Quirk is "Muscle Augmentation", which allows him to augment his muscles to greatly increases his strength and durability.


  • Adaptational Early Appearance: In canon, Muscular doesn't appear until the Summer Training Camp arc. Here he's already part of the League and takes part in the USJ attack.

    Nomu 

Nomu

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

A hulking, artificial being created to take down All Might. Through unknown means, it has acquired multiple Quirks which give it monstruous size, strength and speed, as well as the ability to absorb blunt attacks and a powerful regeneration.


  • Adaptational Badass: In canon, All Might was able to beat Nomu with around three-hundred rapid-fire punches. Here, not only does the Nomu have the Phenex Family's immortality but it's far tougher as it took All Might over 500 hits to beat! Keep in mind that All Might still has One for All during this.
  • The Brute: The Nomu only has barely enough self-awareness to notice its own injuries and the people around it. Otherwise, it just overwhelms his foes with sheer brute force and its inability to stay down.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: In the same way as Riser Phenex, which raises many disturbing questions.
  • Was Once a Man: Or devil, in this case, as it's implied that Nomu was once the second eldest of the Phenex siblings, or at least has similar powers.

Other Characters

    Midoriya Inko 

Midoriya Inko

Species: Human

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

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Has her moments, like showing the ORC Izuku's baby pictures as revenge for him not telling her about Rias's birthday.
  • Covert Pervert: Going by some of her comments, it seems like Inko was quite wild in her youth. She also has no problem with Izuku dating multiple girls and gives them hints on how to get Izuku.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Izuku hides the fact he's a devil now from her.
  • Shipper on Deck: Of a sort. She doesn't care which girl(s) Izuku gets with, as long as she gets grandkids to spoil.

    Lailah 

Lailah

Quirk: Spider

Species: Angel

A sadistic and bloodthirsty woman with spider-themed abilities, who is eventually revealed to be an angel with ties to All For One.


  • Arch-Enemy: To Griselda, having captured her and interrogated her during the Second European War, and killed her mentor right in front of her.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Her Quirk gives her the abilities and traits of a spider, including four Extra Eyes, four spider-like limbs coming out of her back, and the ability to shoot webbing from her palms.
  • Breaking Speech: Gives one to Irina and Xenovia after they discover that she's an angel, telling them that the reason the Great War between the Three Factions got started in the first place was because God was the one who threw the first metaphorical punch in paranoia, despite the Satans being unlikely to desire a war (mocking them for thinking that it would be as clear a case of Black-and-White Morality as Sunday School implied), and goes on to mention other atrocities committed in God's name, like the Holy Sword Project, persecution of the Gypsies, the Crusades and the conversion of the Americas. She finishes up by mentioning that Christianity isn't even the first religion to worship God, but the Church holds all the power compared to Judaism and Islam (or at least, it did before Quirks appeared).
  • Combo Platter Powers: Has the powers of an Angel in addition to the various spider-themed abilities that her Quirk gives her.
  • Expy: Heavily based on Airachnid from Transformers: Prime, with Griselda as the equivalent of Arcee. Appearance-wise she takes cues from Arachne Gorgon.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Despite her many, many terrible deeds, she has avoided Falling due to a loophole, so her wings aren't black, but grey.
  • Light Is Not Good: Is a non-Fallen Angel, with all the Light-based powers that implies, and has pale blond hair, yet is a sadistic and bloodthirsty Psycho for Hire.
  • Psycho for Hire: Although she's working for Kokabiel, she has no personal loyalty to him, only desiring a restart of the war between the Three Powers he hopes to bring so she can butcher and kill as many people as she wants, and has no trouble ditching the tasks he assigns her to sake her bloodlust.
  • Spider People: Her Quirk is called Spider, and it's basically the spider version of Tsuyu's Quirk, allowing her to do anything a spider can.
  • Torture Technician: Was this for God during the War between the Three Factions, and is freelancing now that the war is over.
  • Villain Has a Point: Makes several good points to Irina and Xenovia in her Breaking Speech, like how the higher-ups in the Church funded and approved the Holy Sword Project.
  • Walking Spoiler: Due to The Reveal in chapter 29 that she's an angel.
