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

Shouto had gone through a lot as a 5 years old kid. He could't be like other kids; couldn't play with his siblings; had to train everyday; being beaten by his own father; saw his father abused his mother, the only person that he can be close with, while protecting him; and being burnt by his own mother, the person he loves the most. However, he did not hold any hatred against her, instead he understands clearly that was his dad's fault even Shouto was just a little kid. He is one of the strongest character that I have ever known, not because of his power, but because of his great and caring personality. For his classmate, not mention about Deku, he always cares for his classmates, concerning about Iida when they start the internship, helping and encouraging Iida to become the hero he wants to be, helping Momo be more confident about her power, voting for Momo to become the president for the class (everyone in the class just vote for themselves), using his fire to help the girls for ...more

I like how they made him have two different hair and eye colors though, it pretty. Peppermint boi is forever adorable, but deep. He's also the on not to curse as much, he's not that talkative like me also. But when it come to anime for me, I explode while excitement and start to squeal and scream.

Literally my favorite character. I love how as he began to use his fire he also began to warm up to the other characters.

2 Izuku Midoriya Izuku Midoriya

Izuku is most selfless and caring person in the entire series. He's intelligent and an incredibly developed character. His instinct to put others before himself is something that greatly motivates his dream to become a hero. The story holds so many well developed and interesting characters, but Izuku is the perfect protagonist. He's not your typical jock, not the mysterious quite boy with the dramatic child hood (We all know who that's is) He's the shy, determined underdog that no one really expected to be able to kick so much ass. The boy who proved everyone wrong when people doubted his capabilities, but simply because it was dream since he was child- an element of innocence, which is rather refreshing. He saves the people who doubted him, who bullied him, he saves who he can because that's what is most important to him. But he can be badass, powerful hero when he wants to be - it's the perfect balance. But he fights at the cost of his body- going out of his way every time to save ...more

I just can't say no to this dude, he is a kind-hearted nerd who will give everything for anyone in need and all his efforts to handle that gigantic power-up he was given ( including some controversial methods like copying techniques) with almost no formal training makes him a compelling character. My favorite male student in the show and ill always support him

Great ideology with no arrogant. Following his idol and his dream. Best part is he work very hard to continue his ability. Sacrifices himself to protect others even he is scared.

Izuku is caring and kind, willing to help others even if it means harming himself. He is not the typical overpowered type, but instead has a very cute and shy personality. I have to say he does cry a lot, but after what he's been threw as a kid, I don't blame him.

3 Katsuki Bakugou Katsuki Bakugou

NOW DIE!. In all seriousness Bakugou deserves to be the strongest hero. He started the series as a bully and his rude arrogant nature made everyone think he would become a villain. Yet when the Villian talk to him he told them off. Bakugou is strong, smart, proud and strives to be the best pushing himself hard to reaches his goals. He want to become The undisputed strongest hero in his own way. I hope he overcomes he people issues character flaw and reaches the top of the hero ranks.

He has one of the best and most character development I've ever seen in an anime character, it's sad that he's misunderstood, and people think he's an narcissistic jerk but really he's just a person who's pent up, comparing himself to people and trying to be the best, almost like deku, well that's just some I could say why I vote for him-

Bakugou is a really misunderstood character if you don't look past all the scenes of anger. He may not be the best at showing it but he cares deeply about his friends and Izuku. He has always grown up 'knowing' he's the best. Topped with the temperament of his family you have to expect these behaviors. The most memorable moments that really cause tears to stir are scenes involving him and Midoriya. The background behind these two are deep and filled with emotion and misunderstandings that cause so much tension between the two which end up adding to their respect for each other as well as strengthening their relationship. It may not seem like it but I personally think out of everyone in class 1-A he trusts Midoriya the most as well as Midoriya has the most understanding of him. Their bond when Bakugou is kidnapped by the League shows when Katsuki says, "Stay back Deku. " He didn't want him to get involved. As in him getting kidnapped was fine as long as no one else was. He doesn't want ...more

I think that he is very determined to win. In actual words; Never giving up. Just like your parents or adults always says.
But sometimes he just need to chill, like, eat a snickers, Bakugou

I love her shes my favourite character

6 Eijirou Kirishima Eijirou Kirishima

Kirishima is a strong relatable character, has a lot of problems with low confidence but still try's to make everyone else happy and never fails to boost the group up. He is always cheerful with a smile plus very loyal, and how can we not love our Hardening Boy who can even befriend our Blasty Boy Bakugou!

One of the the most underrated yet interesting characters of the them all. I think it's obvious to everyone that he needs more screen time and character development. His personality and"manliness" are so creative and productive - I wish I got to see more of it. All his fights are so inspirational, I'm glad to see a punch from him every once and while.

He's a precious cinnamon-roll. Fight me

I became more drawn to his character as I began to see more and more of him. He kind of reminded me of myself and others. He felt more... real, in a way. He has insecurities but yet he still manages to cheer everyone on and up. Hell, he even managed to become Bakugou's friend. In fact, when I saw how his dynamic was with Bakugou, I just loved him even more. Kirishima just manages to see the best in everyone, and I hope that he'll be able to see the best in him, too.

She should at least be in the top 5s SHE IS BEST GIRL

Shes so cute :'( I love her more than my own girlfriend, period.

Best my hero academia character ever. No regrets

Most balanced character so far

8 Shouta Aizawa Shouta Aizawa

I love Aizawa and Uraraka equally, but since Aizawa is criminally low on the list, I thought I'd support this wholesome badass. Aizawa is... Aizawa. He's too chill to be an edgelord, and too burned out to be a typical hero. He strikes a perfect balance. What I love about him is that he's a badass, but with little traits that offset his badassery. For example, his sleeping bag. Aizawa and the sleeping bag are the best ship in MHA, hands down. Aizawa also has a really great character design. Finally, his Quirk and fight scenes are top tier too. I just wish he wasn't sidelined so much. There's just something I love about this world weary, slightly sadistic, thoughtful, and good natured guy.

Best character

Best teacher

Aizawa is best boi. He's my absolute favourite character and I love him. I think he's VERY underrated to be honest.
Nobody can change my opinion, hehe.

9 Tenya Iida Tenya Iida

It's a shame he is put so much to the sidelines amongst the main characters. Sure, I'm not one for rich types, but he was raised right! He has let anger take over his morals, but it was for a good reason. Tenya is definitely underrated, as well as some of the villains. In season 3, when Ochako leads the boys who saved Bakugou to Asui. When he realized she was crying, he felt guilty, and started apologizing immediately, saying they won't ever do stuff like that again. Tenya really is very sweet, as well as extremely smart.
He cares for his classmates and peers so much, and feels upset when something goes wrong, as he feels he is responsible for everyone's safety being the class rep. During his battle with Stain he didn't want Izuku and Todoroki to get hurt because of his foolishness. When he found out about his arm injury, he didn't take the surgery to fix it. He kept his arm the way it was, because he knew he made a mistake, and wanted to show he can be selfless. Tenya's reason he ...more

His quirk is useful for battle - Kirishima

I'm failing no nut november and its all his fault

10 Momo Yaoyorozu Momo Yaoyorozu

I think she is rather underrated, especially considering the fact that she is such a strong female character.

She is very caring toward her friends

She is rich and doesn't act spoiled, she is also a super smart and knows bojutsu. ( sorry for any misspelling)

She is very intelligent - ElSherlock

11 Denki Kaminari Denki Kaminari

I absolutely love him, and I think that given time to train himself to be able to make more than one big surge of electricity, he would definitely be in the running for the strongest hero.

Other than his quirk, Its good to know an idiot like him can also be able to enroll in a academy of gifted students. It makes me feel good about myself.

I love him so much he's just best boy

He is AWESOME in his derp form

16 Kyoka Jirou

Jiro is literally the best character, she has a similar personality to me, and I don't get why so much people hate her... she has the best quirk, and shes is so strong

Jirou has such a funky personality and her quirk is really cool ngl... dare I say best girl?

My rp character

Jirou is not annoying, ugly, or whatever you mean by "murder! " She is a super cool character and she has the best quirk: blowing up stuff with her ears and listening to 2 types of music at the same time. Plus, she was crucial in the bnha movie when they were up against those total losers. Also, if Jirou wasn't here then Mineta would murder people with his INSANE PERVERSENESS! Plus she's supa funny, pretty, and, oh yeah, AWESOME! THINK of where they would be without her!
(P.S., she's totally my absolute FAVE character! )

big lady

She looks awesome. I wish she had a better role than being fanservice. - girlcool

Mt. Lady is best girl

I like Mt Lady

18 Mei Hatsume Mei Hatsume

She is amazing

When it comes to attitude and having unique persona She instantly wins, none of the others manage to make Ochako annoyed in the way that She does, and most other character interactions are unique

Honestly one of my favourites. She may be selfish but her craziness and creativeness make up for it

her bbys - chilinuggetuwu

19 Inko Midoriya Inko Midoriya

This absolute Cinnamon Roll deserves love and affection!

Pure Mama Midoriya is best girl and no one can tell me otherwise.

Momdoriya is my mom - failross

god of sex

One of my favorite villians of all time.

23 Hitoshi Shinso Hitoshi Shinso

He is determined, intelligent, and quite frankly the character that I can relate to most. Even after he loses to Midoriya in the sports festival, he still refuses on giving up on getting to the hero course. Plus, his quirk would be ideal in an integration because he could make the suspect or bystander tell the truth. Hitoshi Shinso is underrated and a very well written character.

Much much better then Deku

Best boi

I love him but honestly he deserved to beat midoriya

26 Dabi Dabi

He is cute. And his quirk is awesome. And he kinda reminds me of Todoroki. And I believe that they are brothers. And I can't wait until his real name is revealed. He is my anime crush. Just look at him he is hot. BUt this is just my opinion.

He's definitely one of those characters who barely gets any screen time in the beginning of the story but later gets their upbringing revealed. Interesting and mysterious, I think he's definitely going to have a huge arc based on him that will reveal his motivations and how he got those scars!

He is amazing and bad AZZ and not to mention so hot favorite anime character

Hot. All I have to say. Oh wait he's also todoroki's bro - AnimeIsCoolMaybe

34 Mezou Shouji Mezou Shouji

Best character

I love him and his design is so cool! Not to mention he's suck a gentleman! he's so underrated I wanna know more about him,

Like me he is underrated. Also he saved Izuku twice

He’s such an underrated character, when really he’s only ever seen to be trying to support or help his classmates. Without him the training camp arc wouldn’t have been able to work and both Tokyami and Bakugo would have been taken by the villains.

Precious boi I wanna pet his tail - chilinuggetuwu

I should’ve ate more steel this morning

The most adorable!
And when meets kirishima, he's even more adorable!

He's so sweet,

39 Kurogiri Kurogiri

By far one of the best villians ever. He seems to have a pretty deep history and he has impeccable manners despite being a villain. He tries to watch over Shigaraki to advising him to good decisions, so he is a somewhat mentor to the boy. His quirk is awesome and makes him to near invincible. - Sentimental

He’s so polite, I don’t understand how he’s a villain - KittyWolf

40 Eri

She a great girl

41 Ugne

What a brilliant character. - SpicyYurio

best boy


A villain hero who loves being gay and loves yaoi and yuri and hentai, Catch phrase -STOOOP- and -SHUT... UP-

42 Nomu

A strong villain that all might couldn’t beat easily

I think nomu is the best. he has saved so many oppas and unnies. he is my senpai. saranhae

He has had the most character development and his outstanding looks tend to help his popularity! like dang he is so HOT///////// And he is super strong too he needs more love and I will help him! if you don't think this is the best character then get fat!
