My Hero Ultra Impact is a mobile RPG that tasks you with putting together a team, one so formidable that together you can save the world from certain annihilation. It features intense 3v3 battles, and features a story that takes inspiration from the My Hero Academia anime. So much so, that you might even recognise some of the show’s most memorable moments as they appear before you on the small screen.
Therefore, you’re going to see a lot of familiar faces, which is why we’ve put together this list of all the My Hero Ultra Impact characters. Here, we offer a little background on each character, just in case you’re unfamiliar with them, and aren’t sure where they fall in terms of the story and anime.

My Hero Ultra Impact characters
My Hero Academia is, surprise, surprise, all about superheroes, but you can’t have the good guys without supervillains. So, we’ve split the My Hero Ultra Impact characters into heroes and villains.
My Hero Ultra Impact heroes
Arguably the most successful hero in the world of My Hero Academia, All Might is a former No.1 pro hero, and now teaches at U.A. High School. He was the holder of the One For All quirk, though he has since passed it down to Izuku Midoriya, who he’s training to be his successor.
Denki is a student at U.A High School, and is in Class 1-A. Currently, he’s training to become a pro hero. If we’re honest, we have a soft spot for Denki, his energy is infectious, and he’s incredibly friendly.
Yet another student, like Denki, Eijiro is in Class 1-A and is working hard to become a pro hero. He happens to be a boisterous and outgoing guy, and there’s nothing he wouldn’t do for those that earn his trust.
Real name Enji Todoroki, Endeavour is a powerful pro hero, and his record for the most resolved cases is a testament to that. Since the retirement of All Might, Endeavour has become the No.1 pro hero – must be nice after being No.2 for so long.
This student stands out from the crowd, and no, this isn’t because his powers and grades are excellent. It’s more to do with his raven head. However, he’s sure to make a fine pro hero one day.
Gran Torino is a retired pro hero, who used to teach at U.A. high School as a homeroom teacher. He also put his wisdom to good use by mentoring Toshinori Yagi and Izuku Midoriya. Gran Torino is an extremely intelligent man, though that doesn’t mean he doesn’t enjoy messing with his students.
Anybody call for a badass looking pro hero? Hawks is the current No.2 superhero, and as you might gather from his name, he can fly with the huge wings on his back. Better yet, he enjoys his job so much that his upbeat attitude is infectious, and you’re bound to have some fun when he’s around.
The man of the hour, without Izuku Midoriya, there’s no My Hero Academia. He’s the main protagonist of the entire series. At first, in a world full of superheroes, he stood out because he had no powers. However, no one could ever question his heart, and that’s why All Might chooses to teach him.
You might notice that many of these characters are students, including Katsuki. He’s currently in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, but really he needs some lessons to reign in that arrogance. He also tends to be aggressive and short-tempered, though this is a good thing so long as there are some villains to take his frustration out on.
Kyoka is also training to become a pro hero, and we have no doubt she’ll make a fine one when she graduates from U.A. High School. She’s snarky, sassy, and likes to tease those that are clueless around her. We feel that, to be honest.
Ugh, what can we say about the perverse Minoru? He struggles to have friends in school, and that’s because girls can’t stand him for the way he acts, and the guys aren’t impressed with it either. He’s the resident peeping tom, and we have to wonder how long it takes him to become a villain.
Momo is the vice president of Class 1-A, so you know this student means business. Like everyone else, she’s training to become a pro hero, and we’ve no doubt this natural-born leader will succeed.
Ochaco is one of the main protagonists in My Hero Academia, and she’s a very likeable character. She’s kind, funny, laid back, and gets along with everyone.
Present Mic is U.A. High School’s English teacher, and to say he’s a bit eccentric is an understatement. But hey, it means he’s fun, quirky, and things are never dull when he’s around.
Shota is the homeroom teacher at U.A. High School, and still works as a pro hero. He’s a bit stern and reserved, but hey, he gets the job done, so who are we to complain.
Shoto is the youngest son of Endeavour, and he’s following in his father’s footsteps by training to become a pro hero. However, it can take some effort to get close to him, as his shoulders are so cold we wonder if he’s actually made of ice.
Tenya is also training to become a hero, and like the others in his class, he looks set to change the world one day. He’s a very noble person, and demonstrates discipline that we’re envious of.
This angry dude is training to become a pro hero when really he should be on an anger management course. Still, we appreciate how outspoken he is. Tetsutetsu’s honesty is so refreshing.
She’s our kindred spirit. Tsuyu isn’t afraid to say what she thinks, and this hero in training is blunt when she does it. You know where you stand with this hero in training, and we respect that. The fact she also remains calm and level headed is admirable.
My Hero Ultra Impact villains
All For One
This delightful guy is the central antagonist of My Hero Academia, so it should come as no surprise that he’s one of the more powerful characters available to you in My Hero Ultra Impact.
Dabi (real name Toya Todoroki) is a primary villain in the Forest Training Arc of My Hero Academia, and he also appears in the Pro Hero Arc. As a member of the League of Villains, he’s all too happy to ruin your day.
Here we have another member of the League of Villains, and Himiko is the perfect example of the age-old saying ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.’ Seriously, she’s got a bit of a temper, and takes her villainous work very seriously. You can see her in the Shie Hassaikai Arc, and the Provisional Hero License Exam Arc.
This helmet-loving bad guy is powerful, to say the least. He’s a major antagonist in the anime, and serves as the second-in-command of the League of Villains. However, he has every right to be angry. He was killed in an accident, before beings such as All For One mutated his corpse.
Another delightful guy, who only wants what’s best for everyone. No, we didn’t say that with a straight face. Muscular, also known as Goto Imasuji and Jailbreaker, is a villain, one that serves as a primary antagonist in the Forest Training Camp Arc. Until All For One freed him, Goto was stuck in Tartarus.
Oof, Stain has quite the reputation, and by that, we mean he’s killed many heroes in his time. However, he wasn’t always a villain. He was a vigilante known as Styendhal at one point. Thanks to his ghastly deeds, he became a prisoner in Tartarus, that’s until All For One attacked the facility.
Tomura Shigaraki is the big bad of My Hero Academia. He’s the leader of the League of Villains, well, following the defeat of his predecessor All For One. Take our advice, do not annoy him. Heck, don’t even look at him.
