The students in Class 1-A at U.A. High School in My Hero Academia Season Two are going through their final exams. They’ve completed the written portion, but now they have to complete the physical portion. And to pass the test, the students have pair off and fight one of their teachers. But, the teachers at U.A. High School were all professional heroes once.

If you’re having trouble keeping all the teachers superpowers—or “quirks” as they’re called—sorted out, we’re here to help.


All Might

The mentor of our hero Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, All Might’s quirk is “One For All.” One For All gives All Might superhuman strength, speed, and endurance. But, after suffering an injury before becoming a teacher and passing on his quirk to Izuku, All Might can only use his power for a few hours a day.

Cementoss

A teacher of modern Japanese literature, Cementoss’s quirk is “Cement.” He can make concrete take any shape with just a touch. It’s been suggested he’s an effective hero in cities.

Chiyo “Recovery Girl” Shuzenji

An elderly woman and U.A. High School’s school nurse, her quirk is “Healing Factor.” By kissing an injury she can heal it at an incredible pace. But, because her powers only stimulates recovery rate the person receiving treatment, they are generally left exhausted afterwards.

Ectoplasm

The dark-blue trench coat wearing teacher Ectoplasm has the ability “Clones.” He can expel ectoplasm from his mouth to create, well, clones of himself. The size and numbers vary on the amount of ectoplasm he uses.

Midnight

Dubbed the “Rated-R Hero,” her quirk is “Sleeping Incense.” She can produce an aroma that puts people to sleep. While it’s effective on both sexes, it’s far more efficient against men. Her hero suit also dampens the abilities a bit, but she can rip the fabric to expose more of her skin, therefore releasing more of the aroma.

In My Hero Academia, Sexy Hero Costumes Are Sometimes a Necessity

Nezu

The principal of U.A. High School, Neze is a one of few animals that developed a quirk. His quirk is “High Spec.” This has granted him greater intelligence—above normal humans—and a few anthropomorphic features.

No. 13

A hero who wears a bulky spacesuit, No. 13’s quirk is “Black Hole.” By creating a black hole, he (possibly she) can engulf anything and turn it to dust. His abilities are useful in natural disaster recovery efforts.

Present Mic

An English teacher at U.A. High School, Present Mic’s quirk is “Voice.” He can emit his voice at extremely high decibels. It’s rumored he ruptured his parents and delivery doctors eardrums when he first cried because of this. He wears a directional speaker to aim his voice at his targets.

Power Loader

A hero who’s costume looks like the scoop of a hydraulic excavator, Power Loader’s quirk is “Iron Claws.” With his sharp fingers he can rapidly dig tunnels.

Shota “Eraser Head” Aizawa

Class 1-A’s homeroom teacher, his quirk “Erasure” allows him to cancel other people’s quirks. There are limitations his powers—such as permanent physical mutations and having to be looking directly at his target. Likewise, blinking or looking away from his target will stop the effects of his quirk.

Snipe

Dressed like a cowboy with a gasmask, Snipe’s quirk is “Homing.” This allows him to detect people at long distances and shoot them with deadly accuracy.


We’ve only seen a handful of the teacher’s and their powers so far. But, a premier school like U.A. High School likely has other teachers with even more interesting quirks. Maybe one day we’ll get to see those as well.

My Hero Academia is currently streaming on FUNimation, Crunchyroll, and Hulu.
