Throughout the manga and anime, we saw many strongest My Hero Academia Villains and heroes. Due to appraisal from all over the world, Kohei Horikoshi’s anime become one of the most popular series.
Izuku Midoriya is a protagonist of the series who admires his mentor ‘All Might’ and wants to protect the world by becoming a number one hero. The character is much more like Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto who wanted to become Hokage of his Village.

The prime objective of this Quirk is to avoid visual exposure. To ambush the enemy, her Quirk is more worthwhile. Beside this, Toru can also produce a quick flash of light which blinds her opponent temporary.
There is fan theory that Toru could be traitor in U.A, providing sensitive information to League of Villains. No one has seen her face, nor she gets enough screen time. So there is more reason to believe that she could be a spy working against hero society.

Both moves fundamentally work on same principle. Mashirao himself spins in mid-air and hits his opponent around him.
He mostly depends on his combat styles rather than his Quirk. As a martial artist, Mashirao is a significant hand to hand combatant. To get an extra privilege, he takes advantage of Tail during a close fight.
By conceptual, My Hero Academia‘s storyline is the same as that of Naruto’s. However, you can find even characters are also indirectly inspired from it.

Eijiro has only rival in the series, and that is Class 1-B’s Tetsutetsu who has the exact similar Hardening ability but in Steel form. Hence if both pairs develop their quirk even more and use precisely, they can become one of the top ten pro heroes.
20. EVERYTHING HERO: CREATI
Momo Yaoyorozu is My Hero Academia‘s most attractive as well as a genius teenage girl who makes non-living material from her skin.
Her quirk is Creation that grants her a fantastic ability to creates objects from her fat cells. Momo can make anything as she wants using her quirk. She also can wield several weapons for both offensive and defensive.
However, before producing anything, she needs to think what she is exactly going to build.
Momo got into at U.A. High School through official recommendations. The only students besides her who got admissions are Shoto Todoroki and Juzo Honenuki.
She is considered as S-class intelligence when it comes to applying her analytical skills in battle. Hence it better to have a pro-hero like her who can use the mind as well as powers to stop the crisis.

Katsuki is a long ranger fighter who uses his Quirk for long distance attacks. Despite being his stupid look, he is undoubtedly the smartest person of My Hero Academia. His battle-sense is so high that even Shota Aizawa said that in combat Katsuki shines the most.
During the Sports Festival, Katsuki defeated many heroes in no time. Especially strongest one Fumikage Tokoyami and Shoto Todoroki who had to a loss against him. Thus holding the first ranking in the Sports Festival.
Though Katsuki has a most potent quirk as well as great potential to become a worthy pro hero, he still worries if Deku’s Quirk may interfere his dream for becoming No. 1 Pro Hero.
Originally Izuku Midoriya was a Quirkless character who now inherited All Might’s One For All Quirk. Since then though not able to wield power to the fullest extent, Deku becomes the strongest protagonist of My Hero Academia.
Izuku’s Quirk enables him monstrous superhuman strength and powers. In his classmate, he outnumbers everyone in respect of skills and abilities. According to the wiki, Izuku ranked first position the First Popularity Poll. As a result, he declared as most popular anime character in the series.
Inspired by his hero, Deku develops similar attacks like All Might. His special moves include Detroit Smash, Delaware Smash, few variants of One For All attacks.
Even without Quirk, Izuku is the smartest character when it comes to sharp analysis and battle preparations.
However, because of his imperfect body vessel that held One For All, Deku has a long way to demonstrate immense powers and abilities on the level of All Might. If he overdoes, the hero could end up with damaging his own body.
Doubtlessly Izuku is one of the strongest My Hero Academia students if he has 100% control over his Quirk.

Shoto is a son of the No. 2 Pro Hero, Endeavor who believes that his son might beat All Might in the hero rankings. Filled with an obsession to surpass All Might, Endeavor married an ice-powered woman so that Shoto would inherit quirks from them.
Accordingly, being granted by a Half-Cold Half-Hot quirk, Shoto is considered as one of the most stalwart heroes of My Hero Academia. His quirk gives him both frost and fire powers.
His body split into part parts which cover the right side with cryokinesis and left side with pyrokinesis. To overcome his weakness of using excess frost quirk, Shoto uses his left-hand side to offset the low temperature.

As proof, during Internship Arc, he challenged whole Class 1-A and defeated them in no time. Unquestionably, it was one of the best episodes of My Hero Academia where anime takes a drastic turn by introducing New Arc.
The 18 years old Hero has Permeation Quirk that grants him the powers to phase himself through any objects. He has skills much like Obito Uchiha from Naruto series where the character phase through physical matters using his Mangekyou Sharingan.

12. TOMURA SHIGARAKI
The leader of League of Villains, as well as main antagonist of the series, Tomura Shigaraki is a successor of All For One.
