Top 10 Boku No Hero Academia Characters


The Top Ten

1 Shouto Todoroki Shouto Todoroki

He's the deepest character with the best character development and background. Not to mention despite his dark past, he's still kind and caring towards everybody, and he has a funny side to him as well. He's also determined and badass, and is the one who suffered the most and trained the hardest. I truly think that he should be the one to become the greatest hero after everything he's been through, and I wish All Might had given One For All to him instead, since to be honest he deserves it the most. - Goku02

Wow I'm so surprised to see how quickly Shouto got from #10 to #1! When I created this list, it was made right after Season 1 finished and Shouto didn't have much character development in the first season, but I agree with everyone here. Shouto is the deepest character so far in the series and arguably currently the most overpowered in class 1A. That is, until Deku really gets strong like in the manga, but still, Shouto is an awesome character in the anime. - Mcgillacuddy

He is a complex character who has dreams we just can't help but encourage. Unlike Deku, his motivation for being a hero is admirable, tragic and inspiring. He is not boring, he is hot (and cold) has awesome powers and a cool (and hot) character design. - GypsyCharm

He is da best. No comment

2 Izuku Midoriya Izuku Midoriya

He's absolutely adorable in every way. He knows what he wants and is determinant to get it, while hurting as little people as possible. He's my hero.

He is the best because he relates to almost everyone cause a lot of people feel powerless.

Yeah, yeah, Shouto is cool, Bakugo has potential and is a whirl wind, but Izuku is the embodiment of what it means to be a hero. He's fought with his body broken and twisted, withstanding pain and torment from those that doubt him - especially from Bakugo when he was younger. He's fought without powers, he's about one of the few hero's that uses his head and is able to win through critical thinking, where most rely on their powers for support. I believe he could have become a hero without getting Almight's one-for-all. He's the kind of person with enough drive, passion, and creativity to make any of his dreams come true, especially such a selfless endeavor - saving others. When he gets serious he becomes the most chaotic zombie-like being, doing whatever it takes to achieve his goal at the cost of his body. His whole demeanor changes into a raw monster, whether he has a chance or not he will fight until he dies.

3 Katsuki Bakugou Katsuki Bakugou

He's badass, and it's always hilarious when he gets angry. He's also very intelligent even if his attitude would make it seem otherwise.

Savage and funny

Has the best development out of everyone - Yuxune

I love him and his quirk. (BOOM! BOOM! )

4 Tsuyu Asui Tsuyu Asui

She's the best girl in the show - Goku02

Like her quirk and personality, hope she gets more development.

Wholesome family frog

No one can be her

5 Toshinori Yagi Toshinori Yagi

He is the main character's mentor, who is not a pervert and he is the coolest hero.


6 Ochako Uraraka Ochako Uraraka

She is the character that you will love if Your waifu tags is "cute". Some of her scene is really memorable (especially when she trying to help izuku in the 4th episode of anime). She really a big help when you need it. And plus that she is the girl version of izuku (you can say like that) make her the best girl in this anime in my opinion.

Too cute and pure to reject (also hot). she's so badass.

So sweet and cute, but still a great fighter and so determined to to good! shes very easy to relate to and empathize with, and her fight with bakugou left me teary eyed. easily the girl with the best development (duh, shes main)
i'm not completely satisfied on the way shes written, I wish there was more emphasis on her capabilities and less on her ass. like momo, if this show didn't have a bias towards guys (its shounen, so we can't really expect much better) she would probably be more complicated and treated as more capable, but oh well. shes still bestgirl.

7 Tenya Iida Tenya Iida

Not so complex of a character, but still so much going on. He is smart, strong, and has a cool, unique power. Overall a great character

8 Shouta Aizawa Shouta Aizawa

Even the villain said he was cool

He is a great fighter.

Love this guy

Oof yes
I relate to him on so many levels, like I sleep in class too and stuff.

9 Eijirou Kirishima Eijirou Kirishima

He's a male and brave hero! He deserves at least top5.

Literally the best there's no arguing he's such an amazing character

He's badass, manly and sweet at the same time. He's always there to cheer people up, even if he's conflicted himself and lacks a lot of self confidence.
For a side character, I think he's one of the most interesting, and he's got great character developement as well.
Overall, I just root for him, he's such a positive and warm-hearted guy.

he is gay

10 Fumikage Tokoyami Fumikage Tokoyami

Tokoyami is one of the strongest character in class 1A and his quirk can be used as both offensive and defensive. If he learns to manage his dark shadow in night time as well as increase its endurance in day he might become stronger than the pro heroes. Also he is fast, quick decision maker and a mid range attacker which gives him advantage over physical attackers. Not to mention his dark shadow's only known weakness is fire or light. Hope mangaka give him some attention and love.

He's so quick witted, and mysterious that he is clearly the coolest character.

He is really cool and one of the strongest characters in A-1 - Arminlover101

His character design is amazing
