A quick snack for the Midoriyas note 

So here's the thing. Midoriya Izuku and his mother, Midoriya Inko, are not human. They're what popular culture would call Vampires.

Bloodstained Heroes of Humanity is a My Hero Academia fanfic by Unoutan.

Midoriya Izuku was born a vampire to his also vampire mother Midoriya Inko. He and his mother live alongside humanity as Izuku grows up and attends school with the help of Inko's friend, Sumi.

Unfortunately unlike the majority of humanity, vampires don't get powers until they reach their 100th birthday if they're lucky much to Izuku's heartbreak. Regardless of the human kids' cruelty to him, Izuku believes that he can become a hero!


Bloodstained Heroes of Humanity contains the examples of the following:

  • Abusive Parents: Sumi is revealed to be one to Izuku.
  • Adult Fear:
    • Inko constantly worries for Izuku's safety. She worries Izuku could risk death if he slipped up and forgot to take protective steps before going out in the sun. She fears that his bullies might take their violence too far or he could get caught in a villain attack.
    • Sumi has been close friends with Inko since before Izuku's birth and is Izuku's Parental Substitute and Honorary Uncle. Sumi had to watch over Izuku frequently and educate him on vampire culture due to Inko being a busy single mother. Sumi has all of Inko and Izuku's trust and affection. It leads Sumi putting Izuku into an uncomfortable situation in which Izuku is nearly sexually assaulted. Sumi doesn't believe he did anything wrong and is trying to do what he thinks is best for Izuku regardless of what Inko and Izuku want. Later Izuku finds out with Aizawa that despite knowing vampire protocol, Sumi deliberately uneducated about certain aspects of vampirism. Had Izuku never met Aizawa, he would have continued knowing only what Sumi wanted him to know.
