Top 10 My Hero Academia Quirks
Who needs spider webs and heat vision when you’ve got powers like these? Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 My Hero Academia Quirks.
For this list, we’ll be counting down to the most iconic and most awesome Quirks used by the heroes and villains of this ass-kicking modern anime. Prepare yourself for light spoilers down the line, as well as a whole lot of unorthodox abilities.

#10: Erasure

Never let it be said that this hard-nosed teacher doesn’t care about his students. Able to cancel the Quirks of others just maintaining eye contact, the veteran hero known as Eraserhead is able to instantly disable any incoming threat, just do long as he doesn’t blink. Combine that with exceptional fighting skills and use of capture scarfs, and this homeroom tutor is easily able to waste hordes of encroaching enemies. Sure, he has to constantly use eyedrops to keep his powers up to par, but we’d say it was a small price to pay to be able to neutralize a foe with just a death glare.

#9: Engine

The Iida family are known for many things: high-intellect, an abundance of sidekicks, badass power armour, and Quirks that turn their legs into miniature rockets. Able to unleash bursts of force from the exhaust pipes on the back of his legs, Iida can reach incredible speeds, enabling him to literally run circles around his foes. He’s also able to deliver one hell of a kick when the moment calls for it, one that packing more horsepower than a high end sports cars. Don’t take our word for it… Stain’s face says it all.

#8: Zero Gravity

Hard to believe that someone as sweet as Uraraka has such a devastating Quirk to her name. Able to alter the gravity around her, Deku’s biggest fan has shown herself capable of not only levitating, but also raising up multiple tonnes of debris like they were balloons. While extended use can sometimes cause her to suffer terrible nausea, Uraraka’s determination and training has led her to develop her Quirk to the point that she can rain down hell on her opponent, turning any gathered debris into wannabe meteors!

#7: Dark Shadow

Why fight alone when you can have a creature of pure darkness come out to aid you in battle? Tokoyami’s fiendish little friend takes the form of a sentient shadow that he can summon out of his body at any time, one that can strike out at foes from any and all angles. While originally weakened by sunlight and becoming uncontrollable at night, Tokoyami has managed to evolve his Quirk to the point that it can take the form of a badass set of shadow armour. He may be edgey as hell, but how’s that for revelry in the dark?


#6: Bloodcurdle

In a lesser villain’s hands, the power to paralyze a foe by ingesting their blood could be seen as unhelpful and far too difficult to make use of. Unless of course, you’re the Hero Killer Stain, in which blood sippin’ essentially becomes an art form. Due to his incredible agility and mastery of bladed weaponry, Stain has shown that he is easily able to get himself a sample of an enemy’s blood whenever he needs it. Of course, the far more frightening aspect comes from what happens after he’s imprisoned his victims in their own bodies…

#5: Explosion

Don’t let Bakugo’s violent nature fool you into thinking that he’s a one trick pony when it comes to his Quirk; this rookie hero knows how to handle his kabooms. By turning his sweat into nitro-glycerine, Bakugo can not only unleash a rapid barrage of eruptions from his hands, but he’s also trained himself to alter their form for any occasion. He can let off smaller bursts that allows him to take flight, can create a destructive beam in the form of the AP Shot, and of course can destroy everything in sight with the unstoppable magnitude of the Howitzer Impact.

#4: Decay

How fitting that a man whose soul is filled with corruption has the power to rot everything he touches. Resident antagonist and hand enthusiast Shigaraki has shown on numerous occasions that all he needs is just one chance to get his hand on someone, and the flesh just cracks away like plaster. Given how he’s still yet to show the full force of his Quirk, we have a feeling that it’s only a matter of time before the new leader of the League of Villains comes back with a much more potent way of decaying the bodies of his enemies.

#3: Half Cold Half-Hot

We would say that Todoroki was being greedy by keeping two elemental powers to himself, but given how he turns every fight into either frozen wasteland or hellscape we can’t help but look on in awe. With each arm acting as a conduit for a specific element, Todoroki has every chance of surpassing his father’s power of Hellfire in the ol’ destruction department. After all, we’ve seen him put a small army of ninja blokes on ice as well as unleash a firestorm that nearly barbecued Midoriya.

#2: All for One

To be a terrifying villain in the world of My Hero Academia, you need a look that makes even pro-heroes evacuate their bowels in fear, as well as near unstoppable Quirk. Thankfully for All for One, he has both in spades. Not only is he able to steal the abilities of his victims and leave them as nothing more than Quirkless husks, but he can freely stack and combine them all at his own leisure. The result of all this twisted experimentation has allowed the criminal mastermind to knock even juggernauts like All Might around like flies.

Before we reveal our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
Whirlwind

Creation

Fibre Master

#1: One for All

As if it would be anything else. Passed down from generation to generation, this all-encompassing Quirk grants the user the strength to stand tall as the Symbol of Peace…while also smashing the everloving crap out of villains with a Plus Ultra punch. All Might and Deku have both shown just how potent this Quirk can be, especially when combined with their unyielding willpower. Having only escalated with the handing down from mentor to protégé, we can’t wait to see how Deku plans to one up the United States of Smash!
