Three Sturm und Drang Brothers
Debut: Chapter 6 (Illegals)
Quirk: Glide and Slide
A trio of men that patrol Naruhata at night, stealing people's undergarments. They all have the same Quirk, "Glide and Slide", allowing them to slide across the ground.
- Creepy Crossdresser: The third brother puts on the panties the other two steal.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Knuckle Duster takes them all down in a matter of seconds.
- Foil: To Kouichi. Both have Quirks that allow them to slide, but the brother's Quirk only requires one point of contact, while Kouichi's requires at least three. While Kouichi uses his Quirk to help others as The Crawler, the brothers use their Quirk to fulfill their selfish goal.
- Meaningful Name: Sturm und Drang (German for "storm and drive/urge/stress") is a literary movement that emphasizes individual subjectivity and free expression against the restraints of rationalism, which is reflected in the brothers' view of society as a cage for their wild natures.
- Mythical Motifs: A subtle one, but the first brother flipping someone's skirt, followed by the second brother stealing her panties and the third brother putting them on is similar to the Kamatachi, where the first knocks the victim down, the second cuts the victim, and the third heals them.
- No Name Given: While their group is named, the individual members are not.
- Panty Thief: The first brother flips girl's skirts, the second strips off their panties, and the third puts them on. Their later appearance shows that they also steal men's boxers as well.
- Shout-Out: Their "attack formation" is one to the Black Tri-Stars' Jetstream Attack in Mobile Suit Gundam.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: What became of them after being beaten up by Knuckle Duster is unknown.
Debut: Chapter 13 (Illegals)
A thief with the Quirk "Soccer", who steals things while dribbling a soccer ball.

- Curb-Stomp Battle: Ichimoku and Jube beat the hell out of him after he takes out Kouichi.
- Five-Finger Discount: He's known for stealing things, and he steals Makoto's laptop in his introductory chapter.
- I Know Madden Kombat: His soccer ball doubles as a weapon. He uses it to escape Kouichi.
- Little Bit Beastly: As mentioned in Bird People above, he has a penguin head, but everything below the neck is human.
- Meaningful Name: He's a penguin person named Emperor.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He only appears in one chapter, for only a couple pages, before he's beaten and detained.
Debut: Chapter 6+ Alpha (Illegals)
Quirk: Unnamed Suicide Bomb Quirk
A villain with a Suicide Bomb Quirk.
- Action Bomb: His Quirk makes him a walking explosive.
- Blessed with Suck: Probably one of the best examples. His Quirk allows him to blow himself up, and it's not something he can completely control. If his fuse comes in contact with a heat source, he and anything close to him go boom. As stated in the volume 3 extras, no wonder he became a villain!
- Despair Event Horizon: Implied to have crossed, considering he was willing to blow himself up.
- Going Postal: Word of God suspects that he's this, guessing he was a "tunnel engineer or something" that finally snapped.
- Marshmallow Hell: Midnight puts him through this to calm him down. It works.
- Rage Against the Legal System: He hates cops enough to blow them and himself up.
- Taking You with Me: He planned to blow himself and a police station full of cops and heroes.

A group of four heroes who work as Midnight's sidekicks.
- Bishōnen: All of them are this, which they use to their advantage.
- Distracted by the Sexy: A tactic they employ as heroes. For example, in order to create space for Midnight and Pop☆Step to infiltrate a mixer, they approached the two girls that were originally going and just got them to go hang out with them instead.
Taishirou Toyomitsu Fatgum
The BMI Hero from Osaka.
- See his entry here.
Debut: Chapter 7 (Illegals)
A Hero agency run by Tensei Iida; the Turbo Hero "Ingenium". The agency accepts a wide array of abilities in comparison to other agencies, as Tensei values teamwork and communication more than a Quirk's perceived power.
- Acrofatic: Bigshot, the hero that looks like a wrestler, is this, being able to keep up with more fit members.
- All There in the Manual: The names of a few members are only shared in the volume extras. Namely, Onemu Shinya and Bigshot.
- Hand-Hiding Sleeves: One member, Onemu Shinya, has these.

- Turn the Other Cheek: She forgives the vigilantes for attacking her rather easily, even acknowledging how she must have frightened them while using her Quirk.
Debut: Chapter 31 (Illegals)
Quirk: Snip Clip
The official idol for the Kanidoge Chain, who is actually an undercover investigative cop.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: Her Quirk, Snip Clip, allows her to slice apart nearly anything she can get between her pointer and middle fingers by making a scissor motion with them. It's powerful enough to easily cut through the limbs of solid steelworker exoskeletons, but it's obviously limited by the space between her fingers. For bigger cuts, she can also use her legs and cut anything between them too.
- Animal Motifs: Invoked with crabs, being that the brand she represents is crab-themed. Her name even has the Japanese word for "crab" in it.

- Idol Singer: They're a twin idol duo.
- Polar Opposite Twins: Miu is judgmental and can be very rude, while Yu is shown to be much nicer in comparison. Makoto even calls Miu "the mean one".

East Naruhata High Dance Squad
Debut: Chapter 21 (Illegals)

- Black Bead Eyes: With the leader as the exception, all the members have these.

- Love Confession: The leader plans to complement the East Naruhata High Dance Squad president after the Marukane Department Store performance. We never see if he does though.

- Ascended Extra: Downplayed, but they were originally just meant to be one-offs, but the author decided to make them Recurring Extras.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Samazu's Quirk allows him to extend what are essentially katana blades from his arms.
- Expy: Of Cyclops and Wolverine, reimagined as middle-school delinquents who dress like Josuke Higashikata and Jotaro Kujo respectively. Or, "Two certain someones from X-Men, yes," as the author's notes for them put it.
- Eye Beams: Ichimoku has these thanks to his Quirk.

- Irony: Samazu is a junior classmate to the guy who tormented Kouichi at the start of the manga.
- Punny Name: "Samazu" is meant to read like "Summers", while "Ichimoku" literally means "one eye" or "Cyclops". Meanwhile, the kanji for "Namimaru" can also be read as "Rougan".

Debut: Chapter 16 (Illegals)
Quirk: Fly Swatter
Kouichi's strict mother. Her Quirk, "Flyswatter", allows her to slap things from a distance.
- Adult Fear: When an infant Kouichi started using his Quirk for Flight, she was so terrified that he would hurt himself that she punished him every time she caught him doing it until he forgot that he could.
- Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Played for Laughs when she uses her Quirk to give Kouichi a smack when she catches him doing something she disapproves of. Swings into Played for Drama later when it's revealed that she stunted Kouichi's control of his Quirk by punishing him every time she caught him using its flight applications out of paranoia that he might hurt himself.
- My Beloved Smother: Very strict with Kouichi, largely stemming from the maternal worry she suffered when he was a baby. Even when he's an adult college student, she's not entirely comfortable letting him go off on his own.
- Shipper on Deck: While Kouichi's attempt to pass Makoto off as his girlfriend blows up quickly, Mrs. Haimawari makes it very clear that she'd be happy to welcome Makoto into the family if the two of them actually did hit it off.

- Nice Girl: Deconstructed. She's very kind and approachable, but people abuse her kindness and now she's grown bitter.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: All of the mixer villain incidents could be traced back to her because she was the one who organized them. However, she's completely innocent and isn't connected to the Villain Factory at all.

- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Christopher is 200 cm (67) tall, and she only comes up to his waist.

Pamela: No... I always look like this.
- Tsundere: She (rightfully) considers Chris to be an idiot, but she still loves and agrees to marry him. Even after they split up due to his infidelity, she has a bit of a soft spot for Chris's sincere but goofy side.
- When She Smiles: Chris initially saw her as a "shrew to tame", but then genuinely fell for her once he saw her smile. He married her because he wanted to see her smile for the rest of his life.
