After a lot of thinking and countless of reshuffling of ranks, now I have finally decided upon a concrete list of Top 5 from My Hero Academia anime. Although this was not a very difficult task, but still while deciding upon the rankings, I felt quite uneasy and unsure. And the reason is, there are so many characters that I like, there are some characters who don’t possess enough screen time as well, but still I liked them a lot. But in the end, I just desperately wanted to make a list of myself. So I will not waste more of your time. Let’s start.
Note: I just took the character descriptions from fandom itself, since it describes the characters in a good format with little details as possible.
#5 Deku (Izuku Midoriya)
Izuku Midoriya (緑谷出久 Midoriya Izuku), also known as Deku (デク Deku), is the primary protagonist of the My Hero Academia manga and anime series. Though born Quirkless, Izuku manages to catch the attention of the legendary hero All Might due to his innate heroism and strong sense of justice and has since become his close pupil as well as a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School. All Might passed on his Quirk to Izuku, making him the ninth holder of One For All.
#4 Tomura Shigaraki
Tomura Shigaraki (死柄木弔 Shigaraki Tomura), real name Tenko Shimura (志村転弧 Shimura Tenko), is the leader of the League of Villains after his master All For One’s defeat and arrest, and the primary antagonist of the series. He made his first major appearance as one of the main antagonists of the U.S.J. Arc. Like the rest of the League, his goal is to kill All Might, the “Symbol of Peace,” thus destroying the society he represents and to create a new one with a new form of justice in his own image.
#3 All Might (Toshinori Yagi)
Toshinori Yagi (八木俊典 Yagi Toshinori), more commonly known by his hero name, All Might (オールマイト Ōru Maito), is the tritagonist of My Hero Academia. All Might is the former No. 1 Pro Hero who bore the title of the world’s Symbol of Peace (平和の象徴 Heiwa no Shōchō). He teaches Foundational Hero Studies at U.A. High School.
All Might was the eighth holder of the One For All Quirk after receiving it from Nana Shimura. He has since passed the torch to Izuku Midoriya, whom he is grooming to be his successor. After using up all the embers of One For All to defeat All For One, All Might retired and ended his era as the world’s greatest hero.
#2 Shoto Todoroki
Shoto Todoroki (轟焦凍 Todoroki Shōto) is a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, where he got in through official recommendations and is training to become a Pro Hero. He is the youngest son of Endeavor, the No. 1 Hero, and one of the main protagonists of the series.
#1 Eraser Head
Shota Aizawa (相澤消太 Aizawa Shōta), also known as the Erasure Hero: Eraser Head (イレイザー・ヘッド Ireizā Heddo), is a Pro Hero and the homeroom teacher of U.A.’s Class 1-A.
