What is My Hero Academia?


Welcome to My Hero Academia

Hello, young readers! Thank you for coming to our lecture on My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia). Today, we want to introduce you to everything you need to know about our world – Quirks, Pro Heroes, U.A. High School and more!

What is My Hero Academia about?
My Hero Academia follows Izuku Midoriya on his journey to become the number one hero. Beginning from him inheriting his Quirk, One for All, from current Pro Hero All Might, and through his constant struggle to perfect his Quirk whilst fighting the growing forces of evil, Deku and the rest of Class 1-A must work together to become the next generation of heroes.

What are Quirks?
A Quirk is a superhuman ability, and roughly 80% of people around the world possess one. Whether you’re born with a Quirk that’s grand and bombastic, or little more than what an ordinary human would possess, you will not be able to learn another Quirk. Our protagonist, Deku, is one of the few people who has inherited a Quirk outside of their genetics – sadly, he was one of the few who was born Quirkless.

Quirks can range from levitation, creating objects, super-strength, flight, invisibility… if you can name it, chances are somebody in this world is able to do it. Many Quirks aren’t obvious at a glance, and certain Quirks will be better suited for pro hero work, support work, or something a little tamer. This leads us on to our next topic…

What is U.A. High School?
The most well-known and sought-after school for students to train to become pro heroes, and where the Symbol of Peace, All Might, attended. Several Pro Heroes teach the next generation of students their ways, preparing them for battles, rescues, and more. Whether it’s learning how to read your surroundings to minimise damage, how to better control your Quirk, or how to work as a team, U.A. High School is the place to be if you want to rise to the top.


There are three courses – Heroes, Support, and General Education. All students are required to learn basic skills such as Maths, Science, and learning languages, but otherwise, students are put into a course that best fits their abilities.

The Department of Heroes is where we spend most of our time. This is where the students with potential Pro Hero Quirks reside, with the drive and ambition to save those in distress.

The Department of Support has students who specialise in developing equipment which can aid Pro Heroes on the battlefield. This can be achieved via creating outfits which are streamlined for heroes with high speeds, or outfits that can survive in high temperatures if you rely on flame.

The Department of General Education focuses on students who do not quite have the Quirks for Pro Hero work or Support work, but can excel in other ways. This prepares them for a bright, academic future.

Are you ready to enroll? We look forward to joining you on your own My Hero Academia journey!
