The My Hero Academia storyline is packed with fight scenes, several of which take place over the course of the various episodes. Given that the world described is that of superheroes and supervillains, this is not really surprising. Some of the battles are minor, and others are a spectacle, while others show the impressive strength and skill that the combatants possess.
Professional heroes are pushed to the limit of their power, while students demonstrate that they can fight alongside the best. The first battles of the series take place in the first eleven episodes of the first season, beginning with a villain’s attack on the city and ending with Eraser Head’s heroic act to protect the boys, one that almost ends in his death. .
10 Kamui Woods & Mt. Lady Vs. Giant Villain
As an introduction to the narrative, a giant nameless villain appears sweeping the streets. At the Tatooin station (one of the many MHA references to Star Wars), Kamui Woods attempts to take down the huge creature with the help of his patented lacquered chain prison technique.

Unfortunately for him, the Lady of the Mount steals the spotlight, who instantly defeats her opponent by unleashing her spectacular Cannon Cannon. The press lashes out at the victor, leaving the Kamui sulking in the distance.
9 Izuku Midoriya & All Might Vs. Sludge Villain
When All Might accidentally reveals his true form to Deku, the mud villain « kidnaps » Bakugo, absorbing him and using his blast to destroy nearby buildings. No professional hero saves Bakugo, until Midoriya sets out to save his friend.
This has very little effect on the villain, except perhaps it infuriates him more, but All Might enters the fray, eventually rising up in the name of his famous catchphrase. The slime villain is quickly dispatched.
8 Applicants to the UA entrance exam in front of the UA robots
The practical test for a place in the UA consists of a battle royale situation, in which the contestants are expected to shoot down various varieties of robots that function as « villains ». Everyone starts to rack up points quickly, but Deku desperately hopes he won’t finish at the bottom of his group.
So, the authorities – led by Director Nezu – activate a huge associated robot without any points, so it is more beneficial to evade it than to attack it. When Uraraka risks being killed by him, Deku smashes the machine with his new One For All.
7 Deku and Uraraka against Tenya and Bakugo
As part of a UA training module, Bakugo and Tenya are asked to fight Deku and Uraraka, with a group acting as heroes attempting to retrieve a missile stolen by the villains. Izuku shows his childhood friend that he has changed and that he will not be intimidated anymore, which infuriates Bakugo.
Considering the Quirk Blast’s versatility, Deku has no choice but to destroy the entire building from ground to roof, while distracting his adversary and producing debris for his partner to levitate and fire in Tenya’s direction. Deku and Uraraka win, but Tenya is chosen to be the MVP.
6 Todoroki & Shoji Vs. Ojiro and Hagakure
Another school duel occurs between Shoji and Todoroki’s teams against Hagakure and Ojiro. It turns out that Shoji’s Dupli-Arms is completely useless in this scenario, because Todoroki’s mega wall of ice is enough to encapsulate his environment (along with his opponents.)
He then calmly walks up to the strut of the nuclear charge and touches it on the surface, awarding his team victory. This display of power is enough to make Bakugo nervous at the prospect of fighting Shoto.
5 Professional heroes versus the helmets of habit
Habitual Headgear, a seemingly outgunned villain, has taken several people prisoner, preventing Kamui Woods and Mount Lady from taking decisive action.
Both are also nervous because their enemy is much more than they can handle, but the arrival of All Might turns the tide of battle. With a single Missouri Smash, the number one Pro Hero knocks out the Habit Headgear and rescues innocent captive citizens.
4 Draft Head vs. the League of Villains
When the League of Villains invades the Unexpected Simulation Board exercise arena, it is up to Eraser Head to take them on, one of the two teachers present. He then quickly nullifies multiple Quirks, while simultaneously manipulating their cloth loops as an offensive move.
Eraser Head also has no problem with physical fighting, as one of the minions learns when he runs towards him head-on. At this point, the Pro Hero is starting to show signs of exhaustion, causing Shigaraki Tomura to make his first move.
3 Thirteen against Kurogiri
On the other side of the building, Thirteen faces off with Kurogiri, a battle that has some unforeseen results. Trusting that his Black Hole Quirk would be enough to defeat the villain, he learns that his Warp Gate is a bit more resourceful.
Rather than sucking Kurogiri into his attack zone, his Quirk reverses the effects of Black Hole, tearing at his spacesuit. The students continue the fight on their behalf for a short time, with Uraraka, Hanta, and Rikido successfully holding Kurogiri long enough to allow Tenya to flee the scene (and return with help.)
2 UA Students vs. League of Villains
Multiple battles take place at the same time, such as when Todoroki instantly freezes multiple villains without even trying. And what’s more impressive, it somehow extracts crucial information about the League of Villains mission, namely All Might’s planned assassination.
Asui, Mineta, and Deku have their own private conflict aboard a ship, which is won, at least in part, with Grape Rush. Similarly, Bakugo and Kirishima come off pretty well, while Jiro, Kaminari, and Yaoyorozu narrowly win the win.
1 Eraser Head Vs. Tomura Shigaraki & The Nomu
Tomura’s Decay is a terrifying Quirk; what’s worse is the fact that you know that Eraser Head will no longer be able to override it for a long time. He proceeds to smash the hero’s elbow, after which true power enters the scene.
The Nomu’s attack is too overwhelming for the Eraser Head, who rips off his arm like a toothpick. Deku and Asui strive to protect themselves and their beloved teacher, but the only thing that saves them is All Might’s breaking into the room.
