Top 10 My Hero Academia: Vigilantes Characters

My Hero Academia: Vigilantes is a spin-off series of MHA featuring a group of characters without a hero license stop crime when real heroes aren't around to do it. The series also includes backstories of multiple characters from the main series and, regardless of its tie-ins to the main series, it also has a much more comical focus.

The Top Ten My Hero Academia: Vigilantes Characters


If All Might is Superman in the main series, then Knuckleduster is basically Batman in Vigilantes. Unlike other heroes, Knuckleduster has no quirk. He is extremely straightforward in almost every situation and he loves to talk with his fists. Once he met Koichi, he became his teacher and motivated him to become a vigilante. Knuckleduster is definitely the coolest and funniest character in the series. Even though he doesn't have a quirk, he can take down even the largest villains with a couple of good shots to the face! He's highly skilled in street brawling and is not afraid to face strong enemies head on. I also love how he's somewhat narrow-minded and will even attempt to punch out innocent people to get information without even knowing who they are first. He's simply a hilarious and awesome character! - Mcgillacuddy

Koichi Haimawari

Koichi, also known by his hero name "The Crawler", is the main character of the series. He is a college boy who, unlike Midoriya, had little to no interest in becoming a full-time hero. In fact, he didn't really know what he wanted in life. Koichi's quirk is "Slide and Glide", where he gets into a crawling position and slides around on any surface. It may not sound like a strong quirk, but Koichi has developed this quirk heavily in the series. At one point, he played hero by being the town "nice guy" and performing different services to the community, but soon, thanks to Knuckleduster, Koichi has developed towards becoming a vigilante and fighting crime along with Knuckleduster and Pop Step! I personally love Koichi as a character as he's very relatable for many college students. He once believed that college was going to be the best time of his life, but it wasn't everything it turned out to be, and he ended up hitting a wall where he wasn't sure about what he would want to do with ...more - Mcgillacuddy

Kazuho Haneyama

Kazuho, also known by her hero name "Pop Step", is another one of the main protagonists of the series who works alongside Koichi and Knuckleduster. Pop Step has the ability to jump extremely high. She is known around the city as a street musician, where she sings in front of a crowd of people in the middle of any busy area. Pop Step is basically the opposite of Ochako Uraraka. While Ochako heavily cares about other individuals and dreams of becoming a hero to support her family, Pop Step is mostly self-caring and picks up her title as a vigilante only in attempt to become popular. Even though she sounds like a usual selfish female tsundere, Kazuho actually does have a heart and does indeed care for people closest to her. She is also shown to have a romantic interest for Koichi after realizing that Koichi once saved her life when she was a child, a twist that Koichi himself doesn't realize yet. Kazuho is an extremely lovable character as her self-caring attitude isn't exaggerated and ...more - Mcgillacuddy

Chizome Akaguro (Stain)

Vigilantes included a backstory for the infamous Hero Killer Stain, my favorite villain in the series. No spoilers, but Stain's backstory was definitely something to witness, as the story dove into how his sense of justice was altered. His time in Vigilantes was short, but it was definitely intriguing and it made me love this character more. - Mcgillacuddy

Tensei Iida

Like Stain, Vigilantes also includes a backstory for Tenya Iida's big brother, Tensei, also known as Ingenium. I loved this character from the start. Not only was he extremely kind and uplifiting, but he also provided useful advice and motivation for Koichi's development as a hero. - Mcgillacuddy

Jube Namimaru

Even though Jube looks much older, he's actually a young middle schooler. He was also designed as a parody of Wolverine, as his looks are similar and he can make giant wooden claws burst from his fists. At first, he seemed to be an aggressive bully, but he was no more than a friendly and mischievous dude who is also a fan of Pop Step. - Mcgillacuddy

Ichimoku Samazu
Kuin Hachisuka
Tamao Oguro

Enigma is a young teen who is also one of Ingenium's sidekicks. She can turn into a massive black monster and was also mistaken as a villain the first time Koichi's team saw her in this form. Her introduction was simply hilarious and I could never get over the way she looks. - Mcgillacuddy
