My Hero Academia is one of the “stand-out” anime shows in recent years.
And I’ll always love an anime more if it’s able to open my mind or change my perspective.
Even if a little.
Like Naruto, One Piece or DBZ, the underlying theme is courage, rising to the challenge, and crushing your obstacles.
In this aspect – My Hero Academia not only shines, but it does so in a way that inspires you.
So I had to share the quotes to showcase that, and give you something to remember the show by.
Let’s get started!
The Best Quotes From Boku No Hero Academia:
#1 – Izuku Midoriya Quotes
“All men are not created equal.” – Izuku Midoriya
As much as we promote equality, which is a good thing, all men are not created equally.
Think back to when you were in school. Did everyone get the same grades, the same results, and have the same skillsets in maths, science or English?
We should all be treated fairly, but when it comes to what we’re capable of? We’re all flawed in some ways, and have unfair advantages in other ways (money, family, etc).
“My motivation might seem trivial compared to yours, but I can’t lose, either. I have to live up to the hopes of those who supported me.” – Izuku Midoriya
When you’ve been on a journey like Izuku Midoriya, losing is never an option!
“Don’t worry about what other people think. Hold your head up high and plunge forward.” – Izuku Midoriya
An introduction quote early on in the series from Izuku.
“When the enemy becomes certain of their victory, that will be our chance.” – Izuku Midoriya
It’s within those moments where you have the advantage, because the “enemy” underestimates what you can do.
“Sometimes I do feel like I’m a failure. Like there’s no hope for me. But even so, I’m not gonna give up. Ever!” – Izuku Midoriya
Like in life, giving up solves nothing. If it’s worth pursuing and you’re capable, giving up won’t accomplish anything.
“Whatever you say All Might, I’ll step up to this challenge! As long as you’re by my side, I can do anything. That’s how I feel anyway.” – Izuku Midoriya
“I have to work harder than anyone else to make it! I’ll never catch up otherwise… I want be like you… Like you! The strongest hero.” – Izuku Midoriya
Hard work pushes you forward.
“A smiling, dependable, cool hero…
That’s what I wanna be! That’s why
I’m giving it everything. For everyone!” – Izuku Midoriya
“The deeper the darkness the more dazzling the light shines!” – Izuku Midoriya
“Dreams can become reality!” – Izuku Midoriya
And there are countless examples, and always will be!
“I’m not gonna be your worthless punching bag-Deku forever… Kacchan, I’m… I’m the Deku who always does his best!” – Izuku Midoriya
At some point you have to reclaim your power!
“It’s like All-Might said… Giving help
that’s not asked for… is what
makes a true hero!” – Izuku Midoriya
#2 – Shoto Todoroki Quotes
“Should we have let people die, all in the name of the law? Isn’t it a hero’s job to save people?” – Shoto Todoroki
“If you wanna stop this, then stand up” Because I’ve got one thing to say to you. Never forget who you want to become!” -Shoto Todoroki
Best shoto quote.
“Get a hold of yourself, you’re an adult aren’t you?” – Shoto Todoroki
“I’ll win with my mom’s power alone. I’ll never use your power in battle!”
– Shoto Todoroki
Shoto Todoroki’s dad is the root cause, and it’s no surprise when you realize what kind of person he is…
“Ever since your brother got taken down…
I’ve had my eye on you. Because all that building resentment was written over your face. I know that when I see it. And I know just how much grudges like that… can cloud a person’s vision.”
– Shoto Todoroki
Vengeance may be meaningful, but it can also kill you from the inside out. And blind you from what’s actually important in the grand scheme of things.
#3 – Shigaraki Tomura Quotes
“Heroes and villains both thrive on violence, but we’re still categorized. “You’re good” “You’re evil”. That’s how it is! Symbol of peace? Hah! In the end you’re just a tool for violence, made to keep us down. And violence only breeds more violence.” – Shigaraki Tomura
As much of a creep this guy is, he gets you thinking…
#4 – All Might Quotes
“The slight difference between those who always aim for the top and those who don’t, it’ll come to matter in a big way once you all emerge into society.” – All Might
This quote is deeper than it first appears, if you look under the surface.
“The most inflated egos are often the most fragile.” – All Might
Bakugo Katsuki… This has his name written all over the quote.
“It’s not bad to dream. But you also have to consider what’s realistic.” – All Might
“Whether you win or lose, looking back and learning from your experience is a part of life.” – All Might
Always and forever.
“If you feel yourself hitting up against your limit, remember for what cause you clench your fists! Remember why you started down this path, and let that memory carry you beyond your limit.” – All Might
“Why” is one of the most powerful words in the dictionary. Everything should start with why. That’s what motivation is.
“When there’s nothing to be gained, rising to the challenge at those times, is surely the mark… of a true hero!” – All Might
#5 – Iida Tenya Quotes
“Wanting to do it and being suitable for it are different issues.” – Iida Tenya
Self awareness matters.
#6 – Shinsou Hitoshi Quotes
“Maybe I failed this time, but I’m not giving up. I’ll show them I’ve got what it takes to make it to the hero course, and I’ll become a greater hero than all of you.” – Shinsou Hitoshi
This was a moment worth witnessing in My Hero Academia season 2.
#7 – Shouta Aizawa (Eraserhead) Quotes
“There’s nothing crueler than letting a dream end midway.” – Shouta Aizawa
Aizawa speaks the hard truth.
“They’ve been exposed to the outside world, up close and personal. They’ve had that fear planted in them. And they’ve endured it. Overcome it. Each has grown from that experience. And forgotten how to hesitate.” – Shouta Aizawa
“If you’re going to become a hero, you don’t have time for such leisurely events.” – Shouta Aizawa
If there’s one thing about Aizawa, he’s brutally honest.
#8 – Bakugou Katsuki Quotes
“Can’t stand morons like you who can’t get the damned point! Basically, you’re saying: “we wanna cause trouble, be our pal!” What a joke! I’ve always admired All Might’s triumphs. No matter what any of you jerks say, nothings ever gonna change that.” – Bakugou Katsuki
As aggressive and ridiculous as Bakugo can be… He speaks the truth, and you can’t fault him for that.
“I’m gonna beat you all. Enjoy your win. It’ll never happen again, Dammit!” – Bakugou Katsuki
“Stop Talking, I will win. That’s… what heroes do.” – Bakugou Katsuki
“You’ll regret making a fool of me… I’ll freaking kill you! I’m taking the first to end all firsts. There’s no point in winning against some half-assed punk. No point If I can’t do better than Deku! So if you’re not trying to win, get the hell outta my face!” – Bakugou Katsuki
Bakugo’s quote to Shoto Todoroki when they’re fighting. One of the best My Hero Academia moments…
