Anyone who wants to become a Pro Hero in My hero academy have to go through a strenuous training, provided, of course, that they are accepted into an academic training program. UA High emphasizes the importance of a recognizable public presence – names, supermoves, catchphrases and costumes are the four pillars of a pro hero’s identity.
Some heroes go the path of vanity and decorate their outfits with meaningless additions, preferring a fashionable appearance, others make sure that their costumes are designed to promote their performance.
10 Hizashi Yamada’s basic outfit includes a directional speaker for his quirk
Hizashi Yamada, also known as the Present Mic, is the UA-based English teacher and a very accomplished pro hero. His costume is pretty simple – a combination of black pants and a black jacket with an oversized collar stretched out to maximum capacity.
The only unique aspect of his outfit is the directional speaker placed at his throat and used to aim and / or amplify his Quirk Voice in combat.
9 Thirteen costume retains the theme of her quirk
Thirteen’s quirk enables her to generate the power of a black hole from her hands with enough force to capture the light herself. She wears an oversized jacket padded with presumably protective material, white Bermuda-style shorts, and strangely mismatched amber shoes.
Thirteen’s head and appearance are obscured by a space helmet, but her face is partially revealed in the Paranormal Liberation War Arch. Thirteen’s costume keeps the theme of her quirk without resorting to frills.
8th Toru Hagakure’s outfit includes gloves and shoes, but nothing else
Thorn Hagakure’s quirk is invisibilitywhich automatically means that it would be counterproductive to give her a hero costume. Therefore, she prefers to avoid wearing an outfit that would expose her presence and instead resort to simple gloves and shoes.
More importantly, Toru tends to throw away even those minimal pieces of clothing in the middle of battle, because that’s how invisibility works.
7th Shoto Todoroki doesn’t have to waste time designing elaborate costumes
Shoto Todoroki prefers not to attract attention himself, but his extreme humility has occasionally done the exact opposite. His hero name is the same as his first name, and his first outfit is barely memorable enough to make the cut.
Shoto’s second outfit is nothing special either, though there is something to be said about his utility belt. Given the control he has over his Half Cold Half Hot Quirk, Shoto doesn’t need to waste time creating costumes.
6th Mei Hatsume’s outfit configuration takes into account both modularity and versatility
Hatsume is part of UA’s Department of Support, which means that she has no intention of becoming a full-fledged Pro Hero. That being said, it is clear that her amazing skills in designing devices and other technological tools make her a formidable opponent.

4th Tenya Iida’s outfit is an integral part of his family heritage
Tenya’s serious personality and disciplined lifestyle perfectly match his outfit: a sleek armor of white, blue, silver and gold wrapped around his entire body.
This costume is heavily influenced by his brother, Ingenium, as well as the older generations of the Iida family (many of whom have extremely similar, if not identical, quirks). Tenya is wearing the costume not because it looks sensational, but because of the legacy he’s inherited.
3 Shihai Kuroiro’s simple black costume allows him to emerge into the shadows
Shihai Kuroiro can easily disappear into dark backgrounds with his quirk and explains why his skin is a faceless, deep black color.
In order to keep the upper hand in combat, the intriguing hero: Vantablack wears an uncomplicated costume – a gray-black overall that camouflages him in the shade (or wherever he is lurking).

2 The best jeanist outfit gives him access to denim fibers
Best Jeanist is all about the denim life; he wraps himself in the fabric from head to toe. His vest, pants and shirt are all made of a uniform blue denim fabric with two separate belts (one of which spans the high collar around his face).
As stylish as he is Best costume selection for jeanists is directly connected to Fiber Master, with which he can control clothing of all kinds. However, with its quirk, denim is by far the easiest material to manipulate.
1 The costume of the fat gum helps maintain the elasticity of its body
Fat Gum’s hero outfit includes inconspicuous trousers and a deep yellow hoodie with a huge zipper in the middle. His orange and red boots are fascinating, especially when paired with his alien-like knee pads, but that’s about it.
