Shiketsu High

    In General 
  • Nice Hat: They all wear peaked military caps with Shiketsu High's emblem on them, not only because they're part of Shiketsu's uniforms but also as part of their hero costumes. Shishikura states that it's a requirement at Shiketsu to wear the hat with their costumes since it represents the pride of their school.

Voiced by: Ryota Iwasaki (Japanese), Matt Shipman (English)

Debut: Chapter 102 (Manga), Episode 52 (Anime)

Playable in: My Hero One's Justice

Quirk: Whirlwind

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

"I believe that heroes are hot-blooded! Everybody fighting!! Everybody's fired up!! I love it when things get hot!!"

An energetic and eccentric first-year student from Shiketsu High. Despite being a fan of U.A., he turned down his admission and enrolled at Shiketsu. His powerful Quirk, "Whirlwind", allows him to control the air around him at will.


  • The Ace: He actually had the highest scores for recommended students for U.A., putting him above even Todoroki. In the first part of the Provisional Hero License Exam, he passes the first stage by eliminating 120 participants at once using his wind Quirk. To top it all off, he only needed to eliminate two to pass.
  • The Atoner: Feels guilty for his actions during the Provisional Hero License Exam. Not only does he apologize for his actions, but the next he meets Todoroki, he goes out of his way to try to befriend him.
  • Badass Longcoat: His hero costume has a particularly awesome one.
  • Blow You Away: His Quirk, which when first displayed, created a huge whirlwind.
  • Broken Pedestal: Towards Endeavor. A flashback shows that when he was a kid, he tried to ask him for an autograph, but he was shoved away and Endeavor said "Stay out of my way", with eyes filled with rage. This went against Yoarashi's own philosophy of what a hero should be, leading him to think Endeavor was a poor example of a hero.
  • The Cape: The type of hero that Yoarashi aspires to be, which is what causes him to dislike Endeavor and Todoroki.
  • Death Glare: A very scary and shocking moment happens when he first spies eyes on Todoroki at the Provisional Hero License Exam. He completely flips from being all jovial and approachable to staring venom into Todoroki.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: A variation with Todoroki's fire powers. When used simultaneously, the heat from Todoroki's flames will mess up Yoarashi's gusts of wind, while at the same time the gusts will make the flames lose intensity, power and direction. In essence, their powers cancel each other out.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Butts in while the U.A. students are giving their cheer, just so he can join them in the "Plus Ultra". Then, after getting called out for it, his apology in reply is to bow so low and so hard, that he headbutts the pavement.
  • Foil: To Todoroki. They are both The Ace of their respective schools, but whereas Todoroki is a stoic Broken Ace who is only now learning how to socialize, Yoarashi is an upbeat Hot-Blooded guy who has seemingly no issue with communicating.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: Todoroki and Yoarashi first encountered each other in an aptitude field test, but back then, Todoroki was so deeply absorbed with single-minded hatred for his father that he literally did not even pay attention to anything but what was in front of him and brushed Yoarashi off without even looking at him. Todoroki dredged up an old wound after Endeavor brushed off Yoarashi once before and completely ruined Yoarashi's impression of U.A. because he couldn't stand to be under the same roof as the guy he hated. Todoroki has no idea that Yoarashi's the same person from back then because he has no way of remembering someone he didn't actually get a good look at.
  • Graceful Loser: Even though he is clearly disappointed, he accepts the fact he did not pass the Provisional Hero License Exam, stating he already suspected it. He even apologizes to Todoroki, feeling he made both of them fail.
  • Hero Worship: He seems to put everybody who is training to be a hero in very high regards, except for Todoroki (both father and son).
  • Hot-Blooded: Is constantly shouting, and loves getting into the thick of the action when fighting other students, as shown during the Provisional Hero License Exam.
  • Incoming Ham: In his debut, he sneaks into the crowd of Class 1-A students and joins in on shouting their motto of "Plus Ultra!"
  • Jerkass to One: He is jovial, upbeat, passionate about heroics and a Nice Guy to almost everyone... except for Shoto Todoroki. In the past, he tried asking Todoroki's father, Endeavor, for an autograph, only to be coldly rebuffed and told to "stay out of [his] way". He tried being nice with Todoroki, but was rebuffed and told the same thing. This cold attitude flies in the face of everything he believes a hero should be. As a result, Todoroki's the only student at the Provisional Hero License Exam that Yoarashi is outright caustic towards.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: He bows to apologize so hard that he hits his head on the floor, and thus breaks the sidewalk, leaving his head badly bleeding. When someone points this out, he just says it's okay:
    Yoarashi: I'm bleeding? No worries! I freakin' love blood!
  • The Millstone: During the Provisional Hero License Exam, his intense hatred of Endeavor and by extension Todoroki causes him to get into an argument with Todoroki that costs them both the fight with Gang Orca and their shot at a provisional hero license.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: How he reacts, when Midoriya calls both him and Todoroki out on fighting against each other, rather than teaming up to actually try and pass the Provisional Hero License Exam.
  • Nice Guy: He is actually very cool with everybody he meets. Again, except Todoroki.
  • No Indoor Voice: He screams every sentence he speaks, rather than actually talking.
  • One Degree of Separation: He already met both Todoroki and his father in the past. He was shoved away by Endeavor, who he had admired when meeting him in person as a kid. Subsequently, during the special test to get into U.A., Yoarashi actually tried to befriend Todoroki, but was shoved away again and called a nuisance by him. Todoroki didn't even remember Yoarashi from thereafter since he hadn't been bothered even looking his way.
  • Pinch Me: When he sees Endeavor in a rare moment of sincerity, Yoarashi has to knock the shit out of himself to process it.
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: By the time he and Endeavor meet again after the Internship Arc, Endeavor seemingly has changed sufficiently that he now is genuinely trying to become a proper hero and has lost his natural Death Glare, prompting Yoarashi to think highly of him again and salute his decision to become a better hero.
  • The Reveal: He hates Endeavor, who he believes to be too cold and hateful to be a hero. And this hate has since been passed to Todoroki too.
  • Sins of Our Fathers: He hates Endeavor, recognizing the kind of man he is, and extends that dislike to Todoroki when it seems to him that Todoroki is just like Endeavor. That belief and Todoroki's offense at that belief hampers them both in the second phase of the test to the point that it causes them both to fail.
  • Strong and Skilled: His massive whirlwinds aren't just random gusts; they're very carefully controlled to get the results he wants. Mera notices that when Inasa uses his Quirk to get multiple 'victims' to the triage center, he's not just whirling them up in a tornado (which would be an extraordinarily bad idea, since it could further injure them), he's actually using very fine manipulations specific to each individual person he's carrying to give them the most gentle journey possible.
  • Unknown Rival: Due to his belief that Todoroki is just like his father, a cold Anti-Hero not worthy of being a hero. Todoroki mostly seems apathetic towards these feelings, but as of Chapter 111, Yoarashi's words and attitude actually start pushing his buttons.
  • X Meets Y:invoked Sero describes him as the square of the sum of Iida and Kirishima. That basically amounts to a guy who takes being manly far too seriously.

    Camie Utsushimi 

Camie Utsushimi

Voiced by: Minori Chihara (Japanese), Brittney Karbowski (English)

Debut: Chapter 102 (Manga), Episode 53 (Anime)

Quirk: Glamour

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

"This is gonna be mad lit!"

A second-year girl from Shiketsu High with a ditzy personality and odd speech patterns. Her Quirk, "Glamour", allows her to create illusions.


  • Absolute Cleavage: It doesn't look like she has on a bra underneath her barely-zipped jacket, and you can see her bust and furrow.
  • All Women Are Lustful: Camie really wants a boyfriend, but her school's rules don't allow students to have romantic relationships.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Her fate is left ambiguous after the reveal that Toga was disguised as Camie all along. The only thing that was known was that Toga had been "Camie" for four days. Upon her return to the manga, it's revealed that the real Camie had been kept unconscious somewhere, and was released when Toga was finished with her work. As such, Camie has no recollection of her captivity.
  • Brainless Beauty: She has a cute face, very full lips, and a curvy figure, but is said to be a total ditz.
  • Breath Weapon: Her illusions seem to be created from the air in her lungs.
  • The Chew Toy: Nothing seems to go right for Camie in her debut arc. She gets drugged before the Provisional Hero License Exam and wakes up thinking she took them, only to learn she didn't. Not because she's a failure, but out of necessity, Camie is sent away to the remedial class so what happened to her can be better studied and Camie can have a chance to actually prove herself. Gang Orca thinks she's no good and fellow classmate Seiji regards her as an idiot. Then she meets a group of little kids as part of her training and unwittingly gets the girls turned against her and calling her a hussy, realizing they're already at that age where they've developed strong feelings for boys and the accompanying jealousy streaks.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She has always been something of a strange girl, speaking with heavy internet slang, and being rather blasé about having been kidnapped for four days. Seiji even thinks that's why she was targeted because it's hard to tell if someone who is always strange is acting weird.
  • Collared by Fashion: Camie wears a collar with belt hoops and a ring-hole studded belt around her neck. Combined with the ample endowments and the police-like uniform and she causes a few heads to turn.
  • Foreshadowing: During the first Provisional Hero License Exam, Camie is shown taking notice of Yoarashi's head wound. This proves to be the first hint that she's actually being impersonated by the blood-obsessed Toga.
  • Friend to All Children: Camie loves kids, and even after making the little girls jealous at first, she becomes good friends with them.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: At one point during the Provisional Hero License Exam, a disguised Toga poses and fights naked.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She doesn't realize that some of the things she does come off as sexy. Camie is noticeably well-endowed for her age, and the open collar on her jacket makes it a bit more obvious. It also doesn't help that her hero costume (a sexy version of a police uniform with that jacket, tight pants and very tall boots) is very much in line with the attire of a Dominatrix, she accidentally subjects a little boy to Marshmallow Hell, and a young girl angrily spanks her noticeably large behind.
  • Marshmallow Hell: She accidentally smothered one of the Masegaki School boys in between her cleavage, which leads to him silently freaking out and blushing and Camie instantly pissing off all the little girls who envy her.
  • Master of Illusion: Her Quirk, "Glamour", allows her to create illusions.
  • Mistaken for Romance: After seeing Camie naked with Midoriya during the Provisional Hero License Exam, Sero insinuates this to Kaminari and Mineta, who both get extremely jealous, as does Uraraka, though to a lesser extent.
  • Nice Girl: The real Camie may be a ditz and use gyaru slang non-stop, but she's never been shown to be anything other than a sweetheart.
  • Not Herself: Camie's classmates at Shiketsu noticed that she's acting funny during the exams and eventually figured out that the real one had been drugged with a narcotic and was out for about four days while Toga impersonated her. Toga chose Camie because she had an easy personality to mimic, but a little of Toga's own dark side shone through and left a few warning flags. Not to mention that Toga's Quirk differs from Camie and she paraded around without clothes on as Camie, which is a glaring warning sign itself.
  • Please Put Some Clothes On: This is Midoriya's reaction when a disguised Toga poses naked in front of him.
  • The Reveal: Seemingly making her first appearance during the Provisional Hero License Exam Arc, it's later revealed that this was actually Toga in disguise. The real Camie makes her first true appearance during the Remedial Course Arc.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Camie winds up taking the remedial course for the Provisional Hero License alongside Yoarashi, Bakugo, and Todoroki due to her missing the actual exam thanks to Toga assuming her identity. The four are tasked with looking after hyperactive class of little kids. Camie ends up unintentionally attracting all the boys in the class, while the girls treat her with scorn and start Slut-Shaming her. This, from very little kids.
  • Verbal Tic: She uses loads of slang like "LOL" and "lit" in one of the fan translations.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We don't see her after the first task. This is justified since it was actually Toga sneaking into the fray to steal a sample of Midoriya's blood for herself. When she succeeded in her task, she quietly slipped away from the Provisional Hero License Exam building, likely with the help of her shapeshifting to avoid sticking out. Neither the end of the arc nor its immediate aftermath reveal what happened to her. It wouldn't be revealed until 60 chapters later.

    Seiji Shishikura 

Seiji Shishikura

Voiced by: Makoto Furukawa (Japanese), Stephen Fu (English)

Debut: Chapter 102 (Manga), Episode 53 (Anime)

Quirk: Meatball

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

"It's because every action, every gesture we do reflects the rich tradition that adorns Shiketsu High's name."

A second year student from Shiketsu High with a dignified but elitist attitude towards heroism. His Quirk, "Meatball", allows him to manipulate and detach his own flesh from his body, as well as mold people into lumps of flesh.


  • Alliterative Name: Seiji Shishikura.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Seiji's hero costume looks much like that of a butcher or a meat-packer.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Can control any flesh he touches, turning people into blobs. Despite these nasty-looking powers, he holds a serious, if elitist, view towards being a hero.
  • Berserk Button: Pointing out how squinty his eyes are:
    "My eyes are big and handsome!!"
  • Body Horror: His Quirk allows him to manipulate his own body and anyone else's, as if it were hamburger meat.
  • Broken Pedestal: Mentions that he respected U.A. High, but feels like Class 1-A is making a mockery of its reputation.
  • Clint Squint: Seiji has narrow eye slits that make him look shifty. He's very sensitive about it.
  • Domino Mask: Wears one as part of his costume.
  • Foil: He's basically a version of Iida that wants to force his will on everyone so badly that it gets in the way of what he really should be doing, being a pillar for others to lean on when they need help.
  • His Own Worst Enemy: Instead of being a model hero for others to follow, Seiji doesn't stop there. He tries to make everyone else bend to his will. Seiji's attempts to reform people are so aggressive that they resemble the actions of Stain. His teacher points this out very nervously. Seiji also relies on just himself and keeps putting down everyone around him, which leaves him easily cornered by teams of students when it backfires.
  • In-Series Nickname: Kaminari has started to call him "Meat-senpai".
  • Large Ham: In the remedial classes, he is seen getting carried away with lecturing people all the time, especially Camie.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: His Quirk allows him to manipulate human flesh, which he can use to split apart his own body, and then use that to mold others into grotesque balls of flesh.
  • Mr. Exposition: During the Remedial Course arc, he's the one that explains the In-Universe "Quirk Singularity" theory to Present Mic, and thus, the readers.
  • No Ontological Inertia: He can only keep people stuck in their ball form as long as he's standing. If he takes too much damage, then it will undo his power.
  • Pride: Seems to have a superiority complex, constantly being shown to enjoy insulting his opponents' intelligence, during battle.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He seems fond of giving these during fights. He gets it thrown back at him by Kaminari, after he manages to free both Bakugo and Kirishima, thanks to Shishikura severely underestimating them.
  • Serious Business: Seiji seems to take things a bit too seriously, which makes his teacher nervous to talk to him because he's highly impressionable, takes little things to extremes, and reacts harshly to criticism.
  • Smug Snake: With the eyes to match. His debut is almost exclusively comprised of badmouthing his opponents because he doesn't like the idea of just anyone getting a license now that the era is about to give way to a new generation of heroes. Unfortunately, it bites him in the ass and he finds himself on the receiving end of criticism for being so much of an elitist that he didn't give anyone a chance to prove themselves.
  • Threshold Guardian: Sees himself as this. He believes that, since the exam was made so only the creme de lá creme of the heroes in training can get a chance, he should use his Quirk to make it as impossible as he can for anyone he comes in contact with to have a chance to pass. This means turning them all into blobs, so that they wouldn't be able to put up a fight. Ironically, this means he fails the actual Secret Test of Character which was to encourage young heroes to cooperate for the greater good.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Downplayed, he's not evil at all, but it's made clear that he's the only one who mocks the other schools's students while his schoolmates wants to get along well.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Towards both Bakugo and Kaminari. Though with Bakugo, he underestimates his intelligence, not accounting for the fact that he is indeed a Genius Bruiser. He winds up getting eliminated for it.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: Spends more time taunting Bakugo than he does actually attacking him.
  • You Talk Too Much: Kaminari chides him for this, stating he's so busy trying to lecture people, he doesn't bother checking what's going on around him. He ends up paying for it.

Quirk: Extend-o-Hair

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

"I thought I sent Inasa this way...? The fact that there are so many pawns left... is a disgrace to the Shiketsu name!!"

A second year student from Shiketsu High and the president of his class. His body is covered in long, thick hair, which his Quirk, "Extend-o-Hair", allows him to grow and manipulate at will.


  • Class Representative: Serves as this for his class, apparently chosen by the staff due to his grades and general conduct. This is made clear when he is shown to be much nicer and more levelheaded than his peers.
  • Hidden Eyes: He has eyes beneath all the hair in front of his face, though they can't always be seen, and more often than not, only one is visible at a time.
  • Logical Weakness: Since he has a lot of hair, it can get tangled easily.
  • Meaningful Name: The kanji for "Mo" and "Naga" in his name stand for "Hair/Fur" and "Long", both referring to his Quirk. The kanji for "Masa" refers to his calm and polite personality, as it means "Good/Mellow".
  • Nice Guy: He apologized to the U.A. students for Shishikura's jerkassery after he antagonizes and taunts Kaminari and Bakugo, and even proposes that the two schools have a good relationship following the exam.
  • Only Sane Man: He does not seek to fight against Class 1-A, and actually proposes that they should have a good relationship, subverting Shiketsu's previous Unknown Rival status.
  • Prehensile Hair: His Quirk allows him to control all the hair throughout his body for combat and restraining foes.
  • Shout-Out: His appearance resembles Cousin Itt, in the terms of being covered by long fuzzy hair.

Ketsubutsu Academy

    In General 
  • Hufflepuff House: Receives minimal characterization compared to U.A. and Shiketsu, outside of the implications that it's not on quite the same level either of them.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: While they receive very little screen time during the Provisional Hero License Exam, it should be noted that like U.A. and Shiketsu, the majority of the schools students passed the exam, they just don't have as many flashy players as Shiketsu and U.A.

Quirk: Outburst

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

"You sound like you're in love. How gross!"

A pro heroine and teacher from Ketsubutsu Academy who has a teasing relationship with Aizawa due to past history. Her Quirk, "Outburst", allows her to force others to laugh, impairing their cognitive and mental skills.


  • Contagious Laughter: Her Quirk, which forces people to laugh, hindering their ability to fight back.
  • Cool Mask: A cute take on a gas mask with smileys on the filters. She uses it to complete her ensemble during formal hero gatherings and in the field, but leaves it off when she's in teaching mode and behaving casually.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appears in Chapter 34, long before her official debut. This is Episode 20 in the anime. The one thing that's different between this appearance and her formal debut is that she has a gas mask on with smiley face filters, a sly nod to laughing gas.
  • Foil: To Aizawa, being a Genki Girl whose Quirk is based on laughter, while he is dark and gloomy while preferring quietude.
  • Fun Personified: To contrast with Aizawa and his stoicism.
  • The Gadfly: She constantly trolls Aizawa, randomly proposing to him and trying (and failing) to make him laugh with her Quirk.
  • Genki Girl: Her personality is a huge contrast of Aizawa's.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The cheerful and fun-loving Energetic Girl to Aizawa's reclusive and stoic Savvy Guy. Despite her constant attempts to hit on him, it's a non-romantic version.
  • Ship Tease: Played with, as the fact that she keeps trying to hit on Aizawa makes it painfully clear that she is only trying to get a reaction out of him.
  • Shout-Out: Her Quirk brings to mind The Joker if he had the ability to make people laugh without toxins. Her name seems to likewise reflect this, alongside her relationship with the brooding Aizawa, not unlike the Joker's to Batman. The only difference between the characters is that she's female, a hero, and uses her powers to incapacitate not kill.
  • Superhero Sobriquets: "The Smile Hero".
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She's an aquamarine-headed heroine.

Yo Shindo

Voiced by: Yuuta Kasuya (Japanese), Bryce Papenbrook (English)

Debut: Chapter 103 (Manga), Episode 53 (Anime)

Quirk: Vibrate

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

"The people here are all struggling to seize their dreams and ideals. All of that struggling... we're above that."

A second year student at Ketsubutsu Academy whose friendly demeanor hides a somewhat sinister and calculating personality. His Quirk, "Vibrate", allows him to channel powerful vibrations through any surface he touches with his hands.


  • The Ace: Implied to be this for Ketsubutsu, having the strongest Quirk and being The Strategist. He's even able to fight through being paralyzed by Gang Orca's sonic cries.
  • Beneath the Mask: Late in the first competition, he begins to act more sadistically and like a jerk, to which another student then mentions how he's finally acting like himself. When Midoriya and Shindo interact later on, the former lampshades the latter's apparently sudden change in personality.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Comes off initially as very friendly and straightforward, but Bakugo is quickly able to see through his facade. It's later revealed that he's actually quite calculating and even a little sadistic. This is lampshaded when Nakagame responds to Shindo's Evil Gloating about how they have the exam in the bag by saying, "It's about time you stopped pretending to be so nice."
  • Dishing Out Dirt: His Quirk allows him to create vibrations, one application of this is to create earthquakes by spreading massive vibrations through the ground.
  • Dude In Distress: He almost gets hit by Todoroki's flames and Yoarashi's wind simultaneously, during which both are distracted arguing with each other, but Midoriya is able to save him.
  • Game Face: Normally, Shindo puts on an off-putting fake friendly face around people so they won't get a read on his devious real personality. The second he starts to behave like his usual self, his face twists into a wild and mean grin and his eyes narrow to become sharp and intensely focused.
  • Heroic RRoD: The faster and more powerful the shaking is that he creates, then the greater the impact of the aftershocks upon his body.
  • Identical Stranger: He resembles an older and more handsome Midoriya, while his hero costume is similar to Kirishima's first hero costume.
  • The Leader: The Ketsubutsu students seek out his advice when they realize time is running out.
  • Meaningful Name: His surname contains the characters for "truth" (真) and "temple" (堂), and is homophonous with "vibration" (振動). His given name means "shake."
  • Personality Powers:
    • As Midoriya points out, Shindo's personality is very unstable, or "shaky".
    • When playing nice, he likes to greet people by shaking their hands.
  • Playing Possum: During the second stage of the Provisional Hero License Exam, Shindo could actually still use his Quirk after getting paralyzed by Gang Orca and was planning to ambush him with a counter attack, but then Todoroki and Yoarashi's fight almost got him caught in the crossfire.
  • Red Herring: On a more meta level, his English voice actor is Bryce Papenbrook, who uses his signature friendly voice when Shindo is introduced, making some viewers expect little hostility.
  • Underestimating Badassery: A justified case. His strategy against Class 1-A only went by what he witnessed during the Sports Festival. Unfortunately, the Class 1-A back then is pretty different from the current one. He even lampshades this.

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

  • All There in the Manual: In the manga, her name and Quirk are only revealed in the volume extras.
  • Animal Motif: Her powers are based off a turtle, and she's compared to one in the volume extras. Her hero costume also includes some details that make her boots and gloves look similar to a turtle's legs. This is lampshaded in the anime during the explanation of her Quirk.
  • Anime Hair: Her hair is very pointy and, above her ears, spreads in various weird angles.
  • Body Horror: Her Quirk allows her to fold in her body, which looks very disturbing. This is lampshaded in the anime.
  • Fangirl: Of Todoroki, as she asks for his autograph when first meeting him.
  • Nice Girl: Her friendliness towards U.A. is much more genuine than Shindo's, and as shown later, it's really not an act of any kind.

  • All There in the Manual: In the manga, his name and Quirk are only revealed in the volume extras.
  • Ambiguously Human: Much like Cementoss, he looks more like a rock monster then a human person.
  • Civvie Spandex: His hero costume is basically what someone normal would use in cold weather, composed of a big open coat, jeans and fur boats.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Described as a heartthrob in the volume extras, though he doesn't fit conventional standards of attractiveness.
  • Nightmare Face: Pretty scary looking, despite this, he actually is considered very attractive in his school.

  • Ascended Extra: He's given a name and also a personality in the anime, which he lacked in the manga.
  • Cold Ham: While he has a very reserved way of speaking, the theatrics he puts on during the Provisional Hero License Exam paint him as this.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: He can do this thanks to his Quirk.
  • No Name Given: He was not given a name in the manga, but he was given one for the anime.
  • Shout-Out: His hero costume greatly resembles Android 17 from Dragon Ball Z.

An arrogant student from Isamu who idolizes All Might. His Quirk, "Zombie Virus", allows him to emit a gas that transforms those who inhale it into zombies that can also turn other people into zombies by biting them. However, he himself is not immune to the effects of his Quirk.


  • Bad Powers, Good People: His Quirk is described as "troublesome" and would be more fitting for a villain, but he's still studying to become a hero.
  • Canon Foreigner: Only appears in the second OVA.
  • Fanboy: He's a fan of All Might.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Turns out that even he's not immune to his own Quirk. If a victim of his bites him, which indeed happens during the training exercise as he's trying to beat everyone, he too will suffer from its effects.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his powers and personality, he wants to be a hero. In fact, when All Might first appears in front of the entire group, he looks on in awe at seeing All Might in the flesh with a notable blush.

  • Not So Different: From Bakugo, personality-wise, at least. It's why they can't stand each other.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: His Quirk spreads the Zombie Virus through pink gas, and is temporary, with bites from the zombies also spreading the infection. Fujimi himself can be infected by the virus via zombie bites. The infected become chalk-white, lose their eyes, along with most functions of their brains, gain Super Strength and Zombie Gait, randomly use their Quirks, are Nigh Invulnerable, can be fooled into thinking someone is a zombie, and retain some aspect of their personality (Habuko's friendship for Tsuyu, Bakugo's hatred for Romero).
  • Shout-Out: His name and powers are a reference to George A. Romero. Also doubles as a Meaningful Name since his quirk is Zombie related.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: He can create a man-made one by spreading pink gas around the area. The downside is that it's wildly uncontrollable and he isn't immune to its effects either. Luckily, the effect is only temporary and the victim will return to normal after a set amount of time.

Quirk: Chart

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

A student from Isamu who is the class president from her class. Her Quirk, "Chart", allows her to create a holographic page that can track and detect other people.


  • Canon Foreigner: Only appears in the second OVA.
  • Class Representative: She certainly has the stereotypical look down pat. She and Yaoyorozu bond over the fact that they have students who make the job a lot harder then it needs to be.
  • Flat Character: She's given very little in personality, outside of being a Class Representative. She's basically just the Isamu version of Yaoyorozu.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Her visor doesn't seem to do anything, as it isn't really necessary for her Quirk to work.
  • Meganekko: A well-mannered girl sporting a smart pair of glasses. Mineta points out her glasses as soon as she's introduced.
  • Pervert Revenge Mode: She does this twice to Mineta while both of them are zombies.
  • Sensual Spandex: Her costume is skintight.
  • Tracking Device: Her Quirk makes her a living one of these.

Quirk: Flash Sweat

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

A student from Isamu with a robot-like suit. His Quirk, "Flash Sweat", causes him to sweat a substance that causes bright light and sound on impact.


  • Bandage Mummy: A extremely exaggerated example. By the end of the second OVA, his entire body is covered in bandages, even his hair.
  • Canon Foreigner: Only appears in the second OVA.
  • Flat Character: He only appears in the second OVA and is given a minimum of characterization.
  • Mini-Mecha: Wears one that covers everything except his face.
  • Nervous Wreck: He spends most of his screemtime sweating buckets and during training he freaks out when he's told to fight Bakugo.
  • Overly Nervous Flop Sweat: Has this alot. This is possibly justified as his Quirk is called "Flash Sweat", which could have something to do with it.
  • Shrinking Violet: He appears to be very shy around new people, only speaking to introduce himself or to apologize for Fujimi's behavior.

Quirk: Paralysis

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

A girl with a snake-like head, she was Tsuyu's best friend from middle school. She chose to join a different hero school, but they remain in contact. Her Quirk, "Paralysis", allows her to paralyze those who stare into her eyes.


  • Animal Jingoism: Present in her name (Snake and Mongoose) and her initial relationship with Tsuyu, a frog girl.
  • Ascended Extra: She was created as Tsuyu's friend from middle school in an extra flashback chapter, but comes back in animated form in the second OVA.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her emotional reaction when Tsuyu asks if she wants to be friends suggests that she was ostracized for her frightening appearance.
    Habuko: You stupid frog! I'm just some evil and nasty monster! What do you mean, friends!? Friends are supposed to be chosen! A person like me! Being friends with! Friends with... (tears up)
  • Face of a Thug: Even scarier, the face of a snake. This is why she had such a hard time making friends growing up. Tsuyu was her first real friend.
  • Friendless Background: Just like Tsuyu.
  • Ironic Name: Her name means "Snake", and that surname needs no further comment. In the end, it all serves to symbolize a contrarian theme.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: Her reptilian features do not prevent her from having a full head of Messy Hair.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Has a hyper-realistic snake head.
  • No Social Skills: Tsuyu describes her as socially awkward. However, she has started to make more friends in high school.
  • Odd Friendship: A snake girl being best friend with a frog girl. Midoriya even points out that this shouldn't happen in nature.
  • The Paralyzer: Her Quirk allows her to paralyze anyone she glares at for three seconds.
  • The Power of Friendship: Her friendship towards Tsuyu is strong enough that it keeps Zombie Habuko from harming Tsuyu.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: At first. Turns out she just wanted to have friends.
  • Snake People: She has a snake head.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Prior to being best friend with Tsuyu, Habuko had been following her for quite a while, sometimes even using her Quirk on her.
  • Tears of Joy: When Tsuyu finally stopped her and asked if they could be friends, Habuko teared up. Seeing a snake actually cry is remarkably softening to the heart.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Despite her menacing appearance, she has a soft and sweet voice.

Debut: Episode 54 (Anime)

Quirks: Object Gigantification (Red Student), Earth Creation (Blue Student), Water Gun (Earth Creation), Muscle Gain (Yellow Students), Unknown (The Rest of Them)

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

A hero school that participates in the anime version of the Provisional Hero License Exam. Ten of them corner Todoroki during the first stage.


  • Ambiguous Gender: While most of them are easy to figure out by their voices, body types, and the fact that we see some of them in their underwear when defeated, the student in black's gender remains ambiguous as they don't talk, their design is androgynous, and we don't get a shot in their underwear like some of the others.
  • Canon Foreigner: They're anime-exclusive characters.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Despite them outnumbering Todoroki ten to one and having Quirks that counter his, Todoroki defeats them in seconds.
  • Clothing Damage: Their costumes are damaged by Todoroki's explosion, blowing away their shirts and pans, leaving them in their underwear.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Their tag team attack on Todoroki fails since they didn't expect him to take advantage of the terrain and do a sneak attack.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: The student in blue can shoot earth from his hands.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: Their water and earth Quirks perfectly counter Todoroki's fire.
  • Gratuitous Ninja: There's absolutely no reason for a school in a futuristic society to dress their students in ninja garb, other than it looks cool.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Their costumes evoke ninja garb, except for being brightly-colored. Their tactics when fighting Todoroki are also decidedly un-ninja like.
  • Improbable Weapon User: The one in red attacks by throwing small objects like nuts and bolts, then enlarging them with his Quirk mid-flight. He may be able to do this with other pocket-sized things, but specifically chose pieces of tungsten for their heat tolerance to counter Todoroki’s fire.
  • Irony: Despite being ninja-themed, their go-to strategy when facing Todoroki is a full-frontal assault and brute-force application of their Quirks - they also end up defeated when Todoroki uses stealth and misdirection to lead them into a devastating Defensive Feint Trap.
  • Making a Splash: The student in black can shoot water from their hands.
  • Mook Chivalry: They might have stood a chance against Todoroki if they had thought to surround him beforehand and blindside him with a massive group attack, but instead they toss a single ball at him to get his attention, announce their presence while their entire team is in full view, and then proceed to attack him from a single direction without bothering to leverage their superior numbers or the terrain in any meaningful way.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Two students in yellow have Quirks that allows them to expand their muscles to lift heavy objects.
  • No Name Given: None of them are given names.
  • Underestimating Badassery: They accuse Todoroki of doing this to them by trying to fight them all at once while he's alone.

Saiko Intelli

Debut: Episode 55 (Anime)

Quirk: IQ

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

A student from an all-girl school, introduced during the anime version of the Provisional Hero License Exam. Her Quirk, "IQ", multiplies her intelligence by drinking tea.


  • Canon Foreigner: She doesn't exist in the manga, being a creation of the anime.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Saiko is able to plan for just about every contingency. The only ones she can't plan for are plans which are so unexpected and improvised one wouldn't expect them at all.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: She has light purple hair and has eyes that are slightly darker purple.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Twice. The first time, she is taken off guard when Yaoyorozu deduces what her plan is (force her to overtax her Quirk protecting her classmates) and opts to prioritize offense over defense and take out her entire force. The second time, realizing she has already lost, she manages to separate Yaoyorozu and attempts to eliminate her—only for Shoji, Jiro and Tsuyu (who she'd thought would abandon them in order to pass) to immediately burst in and shut her down.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: A quick scene shows her female classmates admiring her and blushing.
  • Evil Brit: She's not actually British, but she plays off a lot of British stereotypes.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She didn't think that Yaoyorozu's team would prioritize saving her when the opportunity to pass presented itself.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Yaoyorozu, sharing with her being the most intelligent members of their teams and their high class nature, but she is much more ruthless and mean than Yaoyorozu. She also prioritizes passing the test than her friends, and is defeated by Yaoyorozu's team doing the opposite and prioritizing both equally.
  • Evil Is Petty: Once she is Out-Gambitted, she knows she can't make it out of the test, but instead of accepting defeat, she decides that she wants to at least make sure the girl that defeated her won't pass either.
  • High-Class Glass: Wears a monocle and comports herself like a noblewoman.
  • Hime Cut: She has straight-cut bangs, cheek-length sidelocks, and waist-length straight hair. She's also a very high-class kind of character.
  • Logical Weakness: Saiko can anticipate many courses of action and how to counter them, but if her opponent were to do something that it doesn't make sense on an intelligent level, like something so out of left field it would be crazy or impossible to predict, she can be blindsided by the unexpected.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Downplayed in that she raises her fingers to her mouth and giggles imperiously at the thought of defeating the U.A. students.
  • Nominal Hero: She a second year at a high school where students learn and train to become heroes, but she acts more like a stereotypical villain in terms of personality.
  • Out-Gambitted: Yaoyorozu is able to outwit her once she figures out Saiko's own Batman Gambit, which hinges on Yaoyorozu using her Quirk to defend her team, rather than attack her opponents. Yaoyorozu then plots to save her team by incapacitating her enemies, rather than just defending them, which takes out Saiko's entire team. When Saiko then tries to simply take out Yaoyorozu alone, she is still defeated by Shoji, Jiro and Tsuyu coming in to save her.
  • Power-Up Food: Her Quirk lets her increase her intelligence by drinking tea.
  • Punny Name: Phonetically, her name sounds like "psycho", a prefix meaning "mind", and her surname is from "intelligence". Her Quirk alters her mind to make her more intelligent.
  • Rapunzel Hair: She has waist-length hair.
  • Smug Snake: She’s smart, no getting around that, but she’s too overconfident for her own good and being outdone by the fact that the enemy team prioritized saving Yaoyorozu over simply passing by also shows that for all her fancy stratagems, she’s very inflexible.
  • Spot of Tea: Justified as it's how she activates her Quirk — drinking tea multiplies her I.Q. It also fits with her high-class image.
  • The Strategist: Serves this role as team leader for her class, formulating strategies based on what she knows about their opponents.
  • Super Intelligence: Her Quirk multiplies her already-high IQ once she drinks tea.
  • Taking You with Me: After the rest of her class are incapacitated, she separates an exhausted Yaoyorozu from the rest of her team in a last-ditch effort to ensure that she can at least take Yaoyorozu out.
  • Teen Genius: She has an IQ of 150, which is then multiplied by drinking tea.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is a very light shade of purple.
