The My Hero Academia events take place in an universe where most individuals have developed the ability to produce superpowers known as “Quirks” (, Kosei). It is thought that about 80% of people on the planet have at least one Quirk, and these abilities often manifest in kids before the age of four. There are countless peculiarities, and unless two people are directly related to one another, it is very uncommon to discover two people that have the same power. There are exceptions, such as when two people have the same parent. A small percentage of those with a quirk are granted the title of Hero because they assist the government in rescue operations and the capture of criminals who abuse their powers and are more often known as Villains. The humans with Quirk enhancements may include heroes. Additionally, Heroes who perform very well in their jobs are promoted to the position of “Pro Heroes” (, Puro Hr), which is Japanese for “celebrity.” Most heroes’ popularity is influenced by their rank, with higher-ranking heroes enjoying greater public appeal. But it’s not unheard of for up-and-coming heroes to acquire the same amount of fame.
