SYNOPSIS
Set in the distant future where 80% of the population are born with “quirks,” society now revolves around these super powers and the “Heroes” who use them for good and the “Villains” who cause chaos and destruction with them. My Hero Academia follows the story of Izuku Midoriya, a quirkless child whose dream is to be a Pro Hero like his idol All Might, the #1 Hero and Symbol of Peace.

CHARACTERS


Name: Izuku Midoriya
Hero Name: Deku
Quirk: One For All

A hero-loving nerd and the current wielder of One For All. His unshakingly heroic nature inspired All Might in the past, resulting in the latter choosing him as his successor. Now well on his way towards his dream of becoming the #1 hero, Izuku recently partook in a joint operation between heroes and the police to take down a powerful criminal organization. Despite his key contribution to the completion of the mission, Izuku lost faith in himself as the rightful successor to All Might. He is only able to regain his confidence after thwarting an attempted villain attack at U.A., enabling a successful celebration of the school’s cultural festival.


Name: Toshinori Yagi
Hero Name: All Might
Quirk: (former) One For All

The former #1 hero and Symbol of Peace, he retired after his decisive battle with All For One in Kamino three months ago. Despite no longer being able to perform his hero duties, he works towards creating a brighter future for hero society by teaching the next generation of heroes. In secret, he mentors Izuku and trains him to become his successor as a future Symbol of Peace.


Name: Katsuki Bakugo
Hero Name: N/A
Quirk: Explosion

A very skilled and talented, but rude and aggressive classmate of Izuku. Former childhood friends, his once unhealthy relationship with Izuku slowly heals as the two strive towards their shared goal of becoming the #1 hero. Having failed the provisional license exam due to his aggressive behavior and indifference towards saving others, he is putting in extra work in order to catch up to his peers.


Name: Hitoshi Shinso
Quirk: Brainwash

A student from U.A.’s general course who hopes to transfer into U.A.’s hero course. He has been training under the pro hero and U.A. staff member Eraser Head (Shota Aizawa) and is currently partaking in 1-A and 1-B’s joint training exercise as a final test for his admission into the course.


Name: Shoto Todoroki
Hero Name: Shoto
Quirk: Half-Hot Half-Cold

Blessed with a powerful quirk, Shoto entered U.A. as one of 1-A’s two recommended students. Once cold and aloof, Izuku helped Shoto overcome his personal issues during the sports festival, allowing him to open up to others and accept the left half of his quirk. Having also failed the provisional license exam due to his remaining issues with his father, Shoto is currently working towards catching up with the rest of his class.


Name: Momo Yaoyorozu
Hero Name: Creati
Quirk: Creation

The vice president of class 1-A and another one of its recommended students. Momo is a studious and intelligent student eager to prove her worth and help others. Suffering from a shattered self-confidence due to previous failures, Shoto helped her regain her confidence during the end of term exams. Momo and her team failed against Kendo’s team during the joint training exercise with 1-B.


Name: Itsuka Kendo
Hero Name: Battle Fist
Quirk: Big Fist

The class president of 1-B and Momo’s rival. A brilliant student through and through, she excels both in combat and in strategizing. Since her internship experience with Momo under the snake hero Uwabami, she’s held insecurities resulting from people comparing the two students. Kendo and her team proved to be more than a match for Momo and her team during the joint training exercise.


Name: Neito Monoma
Hero Name: Phantom Thief
Quirk: Copy

A 1-B student notoriously known for his inferiority complex towards 1-A and their achievements, Monoma desires nothing more than to prove 1-B’s superiority. However, beneath his deranged behavior around their rival class lies a cunning mind not to be taken lightly.



Name: Enji Todoroki
Hero Name: Endeavor
Quirk: Hellflame

The current #1 hero and father to Shoto, his unfriendly and aggressive behavior made him unpopular despite having the highest number of solved cases among all the heroes. Abusing his family in the past but now acknowledging his mistakes, he is currently working towards becoming a better person and hero.


Name: N/A
Hero Name: Hawks
Quirk: Fierce Wings

The #2 hero, nicknamed “the man who goes too fast” due to his literal speed and the speed at which he climbed the hero rankings at such a young age. A lifelong fan of Endeavor, he is secretly working as a spy for the League of Villains in an attempt to aide the heroes under the orders of the Japanese government.

Not sure if Hot Take not not: I hope Deku's team loses against Monoma.
Same. B needs some wins. Deku needs a loss. Shinso could use a win against Deku considering he was cheated out of his first victory. The math just works.

Fuck. Made some mistakes. Gonna fix that later.
Holy shit bunkitz someone has been busy
Alternatively: Someone has not had anything to do at work because the marketing team still doesn't have the files someone needs.

Just kidding. Kinda. Maybe. 50-50.
I wish kirishima or kaminari made it in to the first post. Sad.
Don't worry, I'll continuously update the OP, so if they become relevant again, I'll add them!
Not sure if Hot Take not not: I hope Deku's team loses against Monoma.
Not a hot take, I think. I'm on the same boat as you.

Oh, glad so many people agree. Time for Deku to get an L. Not sure about Todoroki and Bakugou. I would be pleasantly surprised if they both won. It's been a while for them chapterwise.

That is what you're saying to me rn
Gotta have sacrifices sometimes.

Great job on the OT! That new thread smell.

Not sure if Hot Take not not: I hope Deku's team loses against Monoma.
Nope, that’s a common sentiment. I’ve been saying Deku’s team is gonna lose since this arc started. Not because I want Deku too, but if Shinso is responsible for both teams he’s on getting their victory it’ll solidify his acceptance into the Hero course.

There’ll be slight drama as to which class he’ll pick, but we all know it’s gonna be 1-A. You say that’ll make 1-A unbalanced, but I’ll just conveniently forget Mineta exists until necessary

I think Bakugo or Todoroki should, Deku already got blasted in the tournament
Deku needs a loss
Why he needs a loss? Deku always loses when it isn't against villains
but if Shinso is responsible for both teams he’s on getting their victory it’ll solidify his acceptance into the Hero course.
Shinso is already in imo, if anything he should lose to show that he still isn't up there with the rest

Now I’m afraid Shinso’s team will lose and they’ll be like “Well...the kid won with A and lost with B...he’s going to A”.
If that’s how it’s gotta be for him to join A then so be it but I want him to win both and then he joins A for some other reason. (Like being his mentor’s class)

But Deku already wins when it matters. Recently in fact. Todoroki and Bakugou got dealt a heavy loss with the exam especially. Also want to see Monoma as a legit threat. He's got a cool ability and is super smart.

Bakugo won against deku just after that, he doesn't need to win here
Todoroki needs the win more I agree, specially since his loss was way worse than Bakugo with the whole thing with Inasa
Anyway, Deku always loses in trainings it is getting boring, his only wins was against bakugo in the first time and he didn't even win the 1vs1 and against All Mightin the exam
Outside that he was last in the physical test, lost to todoroki in tournament, tripped in the mobilty test, and lost to Bakugo. Deku needs to show he can win when there isn't anything serious in the line
He is, just in the last chapter he immediately recognized Tokoyami's mistake

I’m not sure exactly how Kohei is gonna work it, but I think Deku can still come out looking good even if his team loses.

It’s also possible that Shinso might have a countermeasure ready for Deku. He has lost to him once already. I can see him trying to get into Deku’s head, maybe making his need to be heroic into a liability.

Now I’m afraid Shinso’s team will lose and they’ll be like “Well...the kid won with A and lost with B...he’s going to A”.
If that’s how it’s gotta be for him to join A then so be it but I want him to win both and then he joins A for some other reason. (Like being his mentor’s class)
Maybe Shinso wins both but decides on 1-A because he likes them better, lol. Deku, Kaminari, Kirishima, and Tsu have been pretty kind to him and treated him like a regular guy, which I think is something he really appreciates.

I don’t get that same vibe from 1-B in regards to Shinso, but that’s just me

Deku will be the one with a countermeasure not Shinso, Shinso isn't aware of deku new skills and deku saw his first fight
Monoma in terms of combat ability is smart, but outside he's not since he failed his exam before the training camp.
He probably lost because of other reasons, remember sero lost and that wasn't because he is dumb or something

Eh I don't think that's a good measurement. Sero and Kirishima failed I don't consider them dumb in similar ways and they lost for different reasons.

Oops, for some reason I was thinking they all failed the written exam, I completely forgot about the fight. Disregard what I just said.

I’m sure Deku will have a plan, but I doubt Shinso is gonna go up against Deku unprepared. I think he’ll have something, a move or a strategy, ready to go that is specific to Deku. More than likely a strategy for keeping him distracted, seeing as there’s no way he can beat Deku in a fight.

Monoma besides being a petty joke is shown to be smart and observant and apparently him and Kendo are the leaders of B

He's probably useless I'm combat but like Kendo will come up with a decent strategy
