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

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

2 Izuku Midoriya Izuku Midoriya

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.

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.

Izuku is one of the best anime characters of all time plus he even has his cute crush Ochako who likes him!, Izuku is adorable and the best of all we get to see his adventure od becoming a hero and growing up it's so relatable in a fictional an non fictional way.

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.

Has the best development out of everyone - Yuxune

Savage and funny

Already number 3. and people haven't even seen why manga readers ranked him number 1. two times in a row

4 Toshinori Yagi Toshinori Yagi

Absolute badass. Stands for everything righteous in the show and serves as motivation for the rest of society as the symbol of peace.

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

Absolutely amazing character.

This character is Jiraya but stronger and not a prevert. That's it, this character should be at higher rank. - AzkaNesia

5 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.

Ochako Uraraka is great. Don't let people tell you otherwise. - AzkaNesia

She's amazing! I'd want to be her best friend just because she's so cool and nice. Low key badass too

Uraraka may not be as strong as the others but she still has a good reason to fight. She just wants ger family to relax a little. She might not even keep that much government issued money... plus she's so adorable - Manlypants

6 Tsuyu Asui Tsuyu Asui

She's the best girl in the show - Goku02

Shes my favorite female character inhe whole show. Plus unlike others her powers can't runout since she is a frog. She has a large family so she never has had any bad childhood memories. She always stays calm which is good for people panicking in bad situations - Manlypants

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

Her character design and personality is GREAATT

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

I love this boy

Strong,smart,and is really helpful. He also cheers people on - Manlypants


8 Shouta Aizawa Shouta Aizawa

He's really funny, and though he's strict, he's actually a real nice guy! I feel he's a little underrated, because he's done tons of cool things in both the anime and manga, and doesn't get too much recognition. And of course, his quirk, which isn't flashy, but is overall super cool! And he's pretty hot haha.

Even the villain said he was cool

You just can't hate him

He deserves somewhere close to 4th place. He was extremely funny in the first episodes, and not as caring. But he does show some compassion, and he takes his job of teaching pretty serious. It's pretty hilarious how he just sleeps in a sleeping bag during class. By far one of my favorite characters, besides Katsuki, Mineta, Asui, and Tokoyami.

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.

At least he get more chapter and it was so cool. MA BOI KIRISHIMA!

The Newcomers

? Pico Pico Pico is from the anime "Boku No Pico". Pico was produced by Natural High. Pico (ぴこ Piko) is a blonde boy who works part-time at Tamotsu's grandfather's bar in the summer. He's often shown swimming, usually naked or in a blue Speedo. He has worn girls' clothing ever since Tamotsu gave some to him more.

You thought this was list of Boku no Hero Academia characters, but it was me, Pico!

? Hawks

He is a new hero from the manga he has big wings that make him fly and do the hero work for him, he says whatever he likes but his design is simple amazing to look at it.

The Contenders

11 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.

This guy is seriously OP. Just imagine having a quirk like that, able to TAKE OVER you if you lose control. I love his design, and his quirk is so creative that he's one of my favorite characters! Dry humor is a plus.

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

Every time I look at him I feel like someone’s writing a smutty fanfic and it saddens me because he is best boi

25 Kyoka Jirou

26 Mei Hatsume

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

She's underrated - Manlypants

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