Also known as Deku, Izuku is one of the rare children in society to be born without a Quirk or superpower. Eventually gaining the attention of Japan’s greatest superhero, All Might, Izuku becomes the ninth person ever to hold the power of “One for All.” This unique Quirk is one that can be passed down from one hero to the next. Initially insecure due to the bullying he endured as a child for not having a Quirk, Izuku turns into a confident, brave hero after his training at the U.A. High School for heroes. He’s also incredibly caring and never hesitates to help others in need. This the quality that led to All Might bestowing his powers upon him.
One of Japan’s greatest Heroes, Toshinori Yagi is more commonly known as All Might. He bears the title of the world’s Symbol of Peace and teaches Foundational Hero Studies at U.A. High School. After receiving the One for All Quirk from Nana Shimura, All Might eventually bestows his powers upon Izuku. All Might begins grooming Izuku to become his successor. Always seen with a giant smile on his face, All Might has the typical superhero characteristics. For example, he’s obnoxiously optimistic about inspiring others to make them feel safe. With extreme optimism and friendliness, All Might is a good-looking superhero that is perfect for recreating at any party.
My Hero Academia centers around the life of Izuku Midoriya as he realizes that not everyone is created equal. He is not like his fellow classmates who have special powers, known as Quirks.

U.A. is regarded as the highest-ranked hero academy in the country.
Eventually, Izuku finds himself saving his childhood bully Katsuki Bakugo from a frightening villain. This leads to Japan’s greatest hero, All Might, bestowing Izuku with his own special Quirk “One for All.” Throughout the series, viewers follow Izuku and his friends as they train to become the next generation’s greatest superheroes. The soon to be heroes balance their rigorous training while maintaining their normal lives at school.
