Izuku Midoriya is the main protagonist of the popular anime and manga series My Hero Academia. Izuku’s hero name is Deku. He is a boy.
Izuku Midoriya (Midoriya Izuku? ), better known as Deku (Deku? ), is the primary protagonist of the manga and anime series My Hero Academia.
Despite the fact that Izuku was born Quirkless, his innate heroism and strong sense of justice drew the notice of the legendary hero All Might, and he has since become his close pupil as well as a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School.
Izuku became the eighth possessor of One For All after All Might passed on his transferrable Quirk to him.
With Tomura Shigaraki and All For One actively hunting Izuku for his Quirk following the Paranormal Liberation War, he decides to leave U.A. before finishing his first year to keep his classmates safe.
He subsequently returns to U.A. with encouragement from his pals.
Appearance – Izuku Midoriya
Izuku’s round face is framed by a short mess of fluffy dark-green hair that sticks up at weird angles around his head, throwing noticeable black shadows onto himself.
His eyes are huge and slightly circular, with irises that are the same green as his hair, which can be very watery at times, and are normally spread wide, giving him an innocent, enthusiastic image.
He has a set of four symmetrical freckles in diamond shapes on each cheek, however despite these distinguishing features, he is frequently labelled as plain-looking by others.
After 10 months of intensive training with All Might, Izuku has obtained toned muscles, and as the series goes, these are shown to get more developed and defined as he grows stronger.
The fingers on his right hand got significantly disfigured after his struggle with Shoto Todoroki, and his hand has scarring.
After his fight with Muscular, his right arm was badly wounded, leaving scars all over it.
Izuku wears a black compression sleeve on the upper portion of his right arm following his recovery from the said fight to support the considerable damage it sustained: it is partially visible when he wears short sleeves.
Personality of Izuku Midoriya
Izuku is a shy, reticent, and polite young man who regularly exaggerates his reactions to unusual situations.
Katsuki has looked down on him for years because he doesn’t have a Quirk, therefore he’s originally presented as insecure, tearful, fragile, and non-expressive.
These characteristics are especially noticeable with Katsuki, who repeatedly chastised him for his desire to be a hero.
However, after being accepted into U.A., making new friends, and facing Katsuki during the Battle Trial Arc, Izuku grows into a more confident and brave person who is always eager to prove his worth as a hero, eventually developing strong leadership skills, which, when combined with his passion and strategic abilities, have turned him into a central figure within Class 1-A alongside Katsuki.
Izuku also has a sympathetic side, and he has acquired a desire to understand the criminals he has seen, and possibly save them from themselves, despite the fact that others around him believe it is impractical.
After learning about Tomura’s tragic history and sensing the pain in his heart through their connection between One For All and All For One, he is re-invigorated in his belief that a great Hero is someone who saves others, not kills, and desires to learn how they became villains and see if there is any way to prevent a fight.
Izuku has began to radically alter his conduct since the end of the Paranormal Liberation War.
Izuku becomes more cold and distant towards others after suffering the trauma brought on by the War, seeing numerous innocent people have their lives damaged by society, having All For One persistently target him for his Quirk, and bearing the duty of protecting his companions.
When All For One vowed to break him both physically and mentally, he became increasingly paranoid about the amount of harm he would cause to those closest to him.
As a result of the overwhelming stress and burden, he rushes into fights, leaving All Might and the other Heroes to look after him so no one else is hurt.
This more focused, serious side of him has prompted individuals to comment that he doesn’t appear to be a hero.
These characteristics appear to have reduced after his buddies from U.A. get through to him and accept him back in.
Izuku Midoriya Abilities
Overall Abilities: Prior to getting his Quirk, Izuku’s biggest asset was his extensive grasp of basic hero skills and strategies.
Izuku has spent years studying Pro Heroes and is able to use what he has learned in real-life circumstances.
His incredible bravery and desire to be a hero were also crucial influences in instilling in him the drive to protect others.
Because of his courage and use of heroic skills, he took on the Sludge Villain and saved Katsuki before receiving his Quirk from All Might, impressing the No. 1 Hero much.
Izuku inherited One For All from All Might after training with him and was given the capacity to control a large amount of powerful energy.
He can move faster than the eye can see and take down a massive villain bot with a single punch, but the physical backlash at the time prevented Izuku from fighting properly or competing on an equal footing with his colleagues.
Despite this, he possessed amazing physical endurance, and his determination allowed him to tolerate One For All’s downsides for the most part.
Quirks – Izuku Midoriya
Izuku’s Quirk, which was passed down to him from Toshinori Yagi, allows him to store a vast amount of raw power, allowing him to dramatically boost all of his physical abilities to a superhuman degree.
As a result, you’ll have incredible strength, speed, stamina, agility, and endurance.
Izuku may concentrate the stored power in a single body part or distribute it evenly throughout his entire body; however, concentrating the force in a single body part imposes more pressure on that section of his body.
He can also choose which percentage of his total power he uses. He can now handle 45 percent of his maximum power without shattering any bones, with 30 percent being his normal output.
When Izuku activates One For All, red vein-like lines run through his supercharged body.
The previous power holders’ quirk elements have united with the core of One For All, resulting in a significant rise in strength.
This allows Izuku to access and use the Quirks of prior One For All holders.
He can even use many absorbed Quirks at the same time, giving him even more combat options. One For All has the following documented quirks:
Izuku Midoriya – Equipment
Following Izuku’s choice to switch his primary combat technique to Shoot Style, Mei changes his second costume to Costume Gamma (Kosuchmu Ganma?).
Improved arm bracers that span the length of Izuku’s arms to avoid further injuries and iron soles to augment his kicking power are among the new upgrades.
Iron Soles (Aiansru?): These Iron Armor Soles, designed by Mei, attach to Izuku’s characteristic red shoes.
When Izuku kicks anything, the soles absorb the impact and disperse the kinetic energy back out, making his kicks more powerful.
After deciding to adapt his combat style, Izuku ordered the soles to strengthen his kicks.
Mei designed the Air Force Gloves, which allow Izuku to focus and target blasts of compressed air that he creates by flicking his fingers.
This permits Izuku to use One For All to launch long-range projectile assaults.
The gloves, as well as the arm bracers, were entirely destroyed after Izuku’s combat with Tomura during the Paranormal Liberation War.
Mid-Gauntlet (Middo Gantoretto?): Like Full Gauntlet, Mid-Gauntlet allows Izuku to employ One For All’s strength in higher percentages without fear of hurting his body, yet it will break if used at 100%.
Izuku’s left Mid-Gauntlet is substantially destroyed after his fight with Lady Nagant, rendering it ineffective.
As seen in the one-shot My Hero, Izuku was initially intended to be an adult.
Izuku was formerly referred to as “Mikumo Akatani” during the development of My Hero Academia. His hair was longer and curlier, and one of his eyes was obscured by bangs.
In this concept, he was Quirkless, dependent on improvised devices and luck to overcome problems.
His hero outfit was also a little bit scarier. The costume was depicted in an orange colour scheme in a sketch.
Mikumo’s design, particularly his hair, has long been a source of dissatisfaction for Kohei Horikoshi.
Horikoshi came up with the current design with significantly shorter hair as a result of this.
Editors also suggested that the protagonist have a real superpower so that he wouldn’t automatically fade into the background.
Izuku’s profile in Volume 1 reads as follows:
Katsudon is his favourite dish.
He was created with the intention of appearing uninteresting.
