Cutest My Hero Academia Characters

Here is everything you need to know about the cutest My Hero Academia characters.


When Izuku is still a Quirkless child, Inko doesn’t support him in the way he needs. She apologizes for Izuku having been born Quirkless, rather than telling him that he’d still be able to become a hero — the latter being words that he desperately needed to hear at the time.

Inko grows to regret her inability to support Izuku at the time and does whatever she can to be there for her son going forward. Despite her being incredibly worried about his safety, Inko would still allow Izuku to remain at U.A. to continue his hero studies, sewing up his costumes and telling him how proud she is of him, and her newfound supportive attitude is adorable.

Fans were quickly taken with Melissa Shield after her introduction in the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes movie. Despite being Quirkless, Melissa doesn’t allow her dreams to be crushed — switching to more of a supportive role rather than attempting to become a hero herself.

Similar to Mei Hatsume, Melissa chooses to support heroes by creating inventions that can boost their natural abilities. Her ever-optimistic, intelligent personality combines with her round face and cute appearance to create a truly unforgettable supporting character.


It isn’t often that a villain manages to strike a fine balance between creepy and cute. But Himiko Toga pulls this off perfectly. Aside from her unkept hair and dark undereye circles, her outward appearance is no different from a typical schoolgirl.

In reality, Himiko is a bloodthirsty individual who wants to be like those she loves. Although her powers are downright terrifying, she still manages to come across as an incredibly cute character to many fans.


It’s easy to think of incredibly tough, muscular-looking heroes like Goku. It isn’t often that the protagonist of a shonen anime manages to come across as cute, but Izuku pulls this off with ease.

Izuku’s wide eyes, messy hair, and freckles give him an adorable charm. It remains even after he starts bulking up a bit in later seasons. In addition to this, he’s got a true heart of gold — and even when he tries to become cold and distant.

Right off the bat, it’s hard not to undoubtedly consider Ochaco one of the cutest characters in all of My Hero Academia. As if her wide eyes and rosy cheeks weren’t enough to cement her cute status.

Ochaco’s driving force to become a successful Pro Hero is the desire to give her parents an easy life. They’ve struggled financially for as long as Ochaco has known. Even so, she was willing to risk forfeiting her acceptance into the U.A. to ensure Izuku was given enough points to pass.
