Melissa Shield

Voiced by: Mirai Shida (Japanese), Erica Mendez (English), Ivett Toriz (Latin American Spanish)

Debut: There's Always Someone Out There Who's Someone Else's Hero (Manga), My Hero Academia: The Two Heroes (Film)

Quirk: Quirkless

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/melissa_sheild.png
"I want to become a person who can create support items to help heroes like Mister Might! Perhaps I, too, can become someone's hero someday."

A Quirkless girl introduced in My Hero Academia: The Two Heroes. She's David Shield's daughter who wishes to follow in her father's foot steps.

She also starred in her own spin-off manga chapter called There's Always Someone Out There Who's Someone Else's Hero and made a short appearance in Episode 58 of the anime.


  • A Day in the Limelight: There's Always Someone Out There Who's Someone Else's Hero, which focuses on her learning she is Quirkless and meeting All Might.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Uncle Might" for All Might.
  • The Cameo: In episode 58 of the anime, where she invites All Might to I-Island, setting up the movie.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She's introduced when she rides her pogo stick into All Might's arms, showing how close they are before converting her pogo stick into an item the size of a flip phone, demonstrating that she's a Gadgeteer Genius.
  • Foil:
    • Melissa is one for Izuku. Both of them were born Quirkless and were devastated upon hearing the news. Izuku was tormented endlessly by his peers for his Quirklessness, causing him to try and become a Hero even without the benefit of one until he received One For All later in life. By contrast, Melissa met All Might at an early age, who assured her that she would be able to help people just as much as any Hero by offering support through her inventions like her father David. Because of this, she was inspired to become a support item designer in hopes of helping Heroes save even more people.
    • She's also one to Mei Hatsume: Both are highly skilled inventors, but Melissa is much calmer and self-controlled than Mei is.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Since she's one of the minority that doesn't have a Quirk, she focuses on inventing support items for heroes like her father does. Her equipment seems to be vastly more advanced than even Mei's, compressing pogo sticks into a tiny device the size of an earpiece that can be activated and deactivated with a push fo a button. Her Full Gauntlet allows Izuku to use 30% of One For All without repercussions and even fire off three full power Detroit Smashes without injuring himself before it's destroyed.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Blonde-haired and a kind, outgoing girl who wants to do nothing but develop inventions that can help the Heroes she admires save even more people.
  • Hot Scientist: She sends Izuku into a panic in their first meeting, and Kaminari and Mineta can't stop going nuts through the whole movie about how she's an angel, especially after she changes into her sexy formal party dress. She also designed a device that can protect against the impact and recoil of THREE full power punches from a One for All user in her short time as a researcher in high school.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Even though Momo is already 173 Centimeters tall without her signature 5-centimeter platform-shoes, Melissa still towers a good 10 or so centimeters over her with said signature shoes on.
  • Losing a Shoe in the Struggle: Due to climbing the tower in a hurry once the villains take it over, she ultimately removes her high heels to move faster and remains barefoot for the remainder of the movie.
  • Meganekko: Normally wears a pair of glasses, and is cute enough to make Kaminari and Mineta go crazy for her. Subverted in her formal attire - she wears a dress, adds lipstick and removes her glasses - presumably opting for contacts.
  • Missing Mom: Curiously, no scenes from trailers have shown her mother. In the movie, you do get a glimpse of her mother in the array of picture frames in Melissa’s office. Since her mom is never mentioned and her only photo with Melissa is holding her as a newborn, it’s likely things ended tragically for the Shields.
  • Nice Girl: A kindhearted idealist who uses to use the power of science to help heroes make the world a better place.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: She gets really close to Izuku while examining his costume, much to his discomfort.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: She's from America, has blond hair, aqua green eyes, and is taller than the Japanese cast. Izuku initially mistakes her for being actually related to All Might when they first meet.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Granted she is by no means ugly in her civilian wear. But looks like a totally different person when dressed for the gala event.
  • She's Got Legs: Unsurprisingly, given her stature. She normally just wears pants, but her legs are on full display in her dress.
  • Teen Genius: She's only 17, but she's already designing support items and has even won several awards for her work. However, she mentions that her grades weren't the best and she's had to work hard to get better.
  • The Team Normal: Joins up with the Class 1-A group for their mission to take down the villains controlling I-Island, mainly because she knows how to fix the hacked security system.
  • Un-Sorcerer: Like Izuku, Melissa is one of the unlucky 20 percent of people to be born without a Quirk.
  • Younger Than They Look: She looks like she is in her early twenties, but she tells Midoriya early on she's only seventeen years old. A bit surprising considering how she looks.

    David Shield 

David Shield

Voiced by: Katsuhisa Nakase (Japanese), Ryohei Kimura (Japanese, young), Ray Chase (English), José Arenas (Latin American Spanish)

Debut: There's Always Someone Out There Who's Someone Else's Hero (Manga), My Hero Academia: The Two Heroes (Film)

Quirk: Bendy Fingers

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

Melissa's father, a scientist who creates support items for heroes. He's All Might's best friend and the one who made his signature Golden Age costume. Episode 58 (the tie-in episode for the film) reveals that he was actually All Might's first sidekick when he started his career in the USA.


  • Affectionate Nickname: He calls All Might "Toshi", while All Might calls him "Dave".
  • Brainy Brunette: He's a brilliant scientist and a brunette.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: His scientific pursuits revolve around inventing support items for heroes. He has earned a Nobel Prize for his work and his uniforms are the only costumes able to withstand All Might's strength. His other inventions include a powerful Formula One-style car that can keep up with All Might and turn into a rocket jet, bubble-producing liquids that can easily nullify explosions, and a powerful Quirk-enhancing interface that can give someone enough power to challenge All Might.
  • Irony: All Might never told him about One For All, which he was slowly losing access to because he passed it to Midoriya, because he didn't want David's life to be at risk. He created his device to amplify All Might and return him to his former glory. The entire plot of the film and David nearly dying, could've been avoided had All Might actually spilled the beans.
  • Late for School: Implied in the opening of the film, where he and All Might are on their way to a lecture when All Might stops them to foil a bank robbery and a crime at the airport.
  • I Was Quite the Looker: Downplayed since he's not exactly hard on the eyes now that he's older, but he was significantly more handsome during his hero days.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Dave does this when he realizes that his actions put everyone on I-Island at risk and effectively made him a villain.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: He's focused on researching Quirk Theory and support items for heroes, but that doesn't stop him from creating jet fighters that can operate underwater, headsets that can help people see in all directions at once, diving suits that can withstand intense deep sea pressure, among other things. Somewhat subverted in the fact that his daughter implies in a conversation with Deku that all that technology was based off his research, not created by him directly.
  • Weak, but Skilled: He was All Might's sidekick. And he was apparently in the field with his friend, rather than Mission Control, to boot, despite being a scientist, and despite his Quirk being, well, just being able to bend his fingers more than other people.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: It turns out that he's the one who set up the terrorist attack on I-Island, since he wanted to take back his Quirk-enhancing invention so he could restore All Might's powers again. Unfortunately, the people he hired to stage the attack really were criminals, and they take his invention for themselves.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: His Quirk is "Bendy Fingers" which allow him to bend his fingers slightly more than a normal person's. He tries to use this to assure Melissa that it was alright to be Quirkless because his Quirk was rather lame anyways.

    Samuel "Sam" Abraham 

Samuel "Sam" Abraham

Voiced by: Mitsuru Ogata (Japanese), Barry Yandell (English)

Debut: My Hero Academia: The Two Heroes (Film)

Quirk: Unknown

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sam_513.png

David Shield's assistant, who usually just goes by Sam.


  • All for Nothing: What he felt the time and effort he spent working on the Quirk-Enhancing device became when the research was frozen.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Sam planned to give the Quirk enhancer to Wolfram because he was mad at David for letting it be confiscated in the first place. Wolfram repays him accordingly.
  • Fat Bastard: Downplayed. He wanted to give David's invention away because he was mad at him, but he's otherwise a nice enough guy.
  • Only in It for the Money: Initially not the case as he worked to make the world a better place, but after his and David's research was frozen, he resolved to steal and sell the device so that he would at least get some money for all the time and effort put into it.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Wolfram shoots Sam as soon as he has the Quirk enhancer. In a twist, Sam isn't killed as far the audience is shown.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: Is nearly completely absent from trailers despite being a rather important character in the film.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He and David set up the terrorist attack on I-Island to take back their Quirk-enhancing invention to restore All Might's powers again. Though it's averted because he only wanted it so he could give it away to get back at David.

Island Terrorists

    Wolfram 

Wolfram

Voiced by: Rikiya Koyama (Japanese), Keith Silverstein (English), Gerardo Vásquez (Latin American Spanish)

Debut: My Hero Academia: The Two Heroes (Film)

Quirk: Unnamed Metal Quirk, Unnamed Power-Up Quirk

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

The main antagonist in My Hero Academia: The Two Heroes, who invades and takes over I-Island. His Quirk allows him to manipulate metal.


  • Badass Longcoat: He's a formidable villain and wears a long white trenchcoat.
  • Big Bad: Although David was the one who planned the I-Island incident, Wolfram turns out to be secretly manipulating events for his own benefit, and he ends up being the final adversary of the film.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Part of what makes him so deadly is that he does not mess around at all, using whatever means he can to win. This includes pulling a gun out mid-flight, something rarely seen in the series at all. When he first fights Midoriya, he blindsides him with a barrage of attacks before the boy can even counter, allowing him to get away.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: His Quirk allows him to manipulate metal. He can create walls to block his opponents' path, strike them with metallic poles emerging from the ground, and, with the help of David's Quirk-amplifying helmet, surround himself with a near-indestructible metal fortress and throw around enormous metal cubes, one of which is big enough to crush the entire tower the fight takes place on.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: After using the Quirk Enhancer on himself, his voice becomes progressively deeper and more distorted until he goes full-on Voice of the Legion.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has jagged scars across his eye and the lower half of his face that cement his villainous appearance.
  • Meaningful Name: Wolfram is the German name for tungsten, a type of metal. Wolfram happens to have a metal bending Quirk.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: While he does gloat a little, he's not one to lose track of his objective after he incapacitates those after him. And if fought directly, always tries to go in for the kill.
  • Oh, Crap!: Gets this when Deku and All Might burst through his defenses and are about to hit him with the full brunt of their powers. He makes a futile attempt to cover himself in metal but they break through it, knock him out and destroy the amplifier in the process.
  • Only in It for the Money: He's no actor, he's a real Arms Dealer, as David and Sam found out the hard way.
  • One-Winged Angel: During the Final Battle, he dons the Quirk Enhancer, and becomes powerful enough to create a giant, coiling mass of metal that makes him look like a borderline Eldritch Abomination. The power boost is so great, in fact, that he thinks twice about selling the device, and decides to keep it for himself.
  • Super Strength: Though his Quirk involves metal, he was also gifted with a muscle enhancing Quirk by All For One. When combined with the Quirk Enhancer, he's strong enough to choke the likes of All Might.
  • Why Won't You Die?: In the final battle, he becomes frustrated that Deku and All Might won't stay down despite the Quirk enhancer amplifying his powers, leading to him to yell at them to be crushed already.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Subverted. While he makes extensive use of his metal-manipulating Quirk to great effect, he's also just as happy to shoot someone who's in a vulnerable position, and if the first shot doesn't kill, he'll just fire another one.

    Swordkil

Quirk: Unnamed Sword Quirk

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

One of the terrorists who invaded I-Island with Wolfram. His Quirk allows him to transform his arms into blades.


  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Opts to gloat at Melissa when she's knocked down instead of finishing off Midoriya, a hero-in-training, who is currently at his mercy.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: He can transform his arms into blades.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: While he manages to ambush and nearly knock Deku out of the building, he lets his guard down too easily and is ultimately taken out by one punch from Deku.
  • Evil Gloating: Starts to throw some at Melissa when he knocks her down, but Midoriya stops him before he can get anything meaningful out.
  • Punched Across the Room: When Deku manages to get a hit in on him, he's sent flying straight into the stairwell and out of the movie.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He nearly kills Midoriya and actually cuts Melissa.

    Nobu 

Nobu

Voiced by: Ben Bryant (English)

Debut: My Hero Academia: The Two Heroes (Film)

Quirk: Unnamed Displacement Quirk

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nobu_4.jpg

One of the terrorists who invaded I-Island with Wolfram. His Quirk allows him to shoot blasts of air that displace the things they hit into his hands.


  • Elite Mooks: He's more dangerous than the guys with guns, but he's still dealt with quickly.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His attempt at displacing Bakugo fails, but he manages to graze him enough to catch some of his clothes and sweat. Said sweat is combustible, which Todoroki uses to defeat him.
  • Lean and Mean: A tall and lanky villain to contrast Daigo being The Napoleon
  • Teleportation: A variant. His Quirk allows him to displace matter into his hands via air blasts.
  • True Companions: Implied with Daigo. When Bakugo knocks him out, Nobu is shown to be very upset.
  • Unique Enemy: Compared to Wolfram's other Elite Mooks, who only have simple blade and strength Quirks, Nobu has a rather unique powerset that's the first of its kind in the series.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Starts the fight with Todoroki, Bakugo, and Kirishima with little provocation. At one point, he tries to dismember Bakugo by displacing part of his arm.

  • Animal Motifs: His beast form resembles a giant gorilla, giving him a Killer Gorilla vibe.
  • The Brute: Of Wolfram's Elite Mooks.
  • Elite Mooks: He's more trouble than the guys with guns, but he's still not a big issue in the grand scheme of things.
  • Eyes Always Shut: When not transformed, his eyes usually remain shut.
  • Hulking Out: His Quirk in a nutshell.
  • The Napoleon: A shorter villain who is easily angered to contrast Nobu being Lean and Mean.

  • True Companions: Implied with Nobu. When Bakugo knocks Daigo out, Nobu is shown to get very upset.
  • Would Hurt a Child: During his fight with Todoroki, Bakugo, and Kirishima, he launches Kirishima into a wall and holds nothing back when fighting Bakugo.

  • Non-Action Guy: Doesn't do any fighting, and is only there to hack the security.

  • Unexplained Recovery: He and an unnamed helicopter pilot manage to survive a helicopter exploding with a scratch on them. Wolfram did as well, but he had the Quirk Enhancing Device and a strength Quirk to help protect him, the hacker and pilot had no such advantage.

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

Two L.A. based heroes who appear at the start of the movie. Cow Lady's Quirk, Cow, lets her transform into an anthropomorphic cow, and Elec Plant's Quirk, Electricity Generation, lets him produce blasts of electricity.

  • Animorphism: Cow Lady's Quirk lets her transform into an anthropomorphic cow with the strength to match.
  • Cowgirl: Cow Lady's theme both figuratively and literally.
  • Foil: To Mount Lady, a fanservice-y female hero with a transformation Quirk, and Kamui Woods, a masked hero with an elemental Quirk.

  • Horned Humanoid: Cow Lady has cow horns even when not transformed.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Cow Lady's outfit is rather skimpy and leaves little to the imagination. It turns into Fan Disservice upon her transformation, for most people at least.

  • Little Bit Beastly: Cow Lady has cow ears and horns.
  • Shock and Awe: Elec Plant's Quirk lets him fire off electric blasts.
