Anime Shouta


I'm sorry to tell you... that for the next three years... U.A. will run you through the wringer. That's "Plus Ultra". Use your strength to overcome it all. So bring it.
~ Aizawa challenging his class to give it their all


Shouta Aizawa, also known by his Hero Name, Eraserhead, is a Pro Hero and Class 1-A's Homeroom Teacher. Apathetic and stern at a glance, he nevertheless holds his class to incredibly high standards, going so far as to expel entire classes for failing to meet them.

Powers and Stats

Tier: High 8-C

Name: Shouta Aizawa,  Eraserhead

Origin: My Hero Academia

Gender: Male

Age: 30

Classification: Pro-Hero, Teacher

Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant, Skilled with his Capturing Weapon, Can temporarily erase opposing foe's supernatural powers by looking at them

Attack Potency: Large Building level+ (Can easily keep up with his students despite his lack of a physical Quirk but lacks the power to take down powerhouse fighters head on)

Speed: At least Subsonic with Hypersonic+ Combat/Reaction Speed (Quickly and easily restrained Todoroki Shouto with a sneak attack while weighed down by Hatsume's handicap weights)

Lifting Strength: Athletic Human (Can easily fling villains over his shoulder and has hoisted numerous opponents into the air to restrain them)

Striking Strength: At least Large Building Class (Can easily knock out most people but suffers against powerhouses like Noumu)

Durability: At most Large Building level (Survived Noumu's pummeling, albeit with permanent injuries)

Stamina: High (Still had enough stamina to use his quirk after being pummeled)

Range: Standard melee range, Multiple Meters with Capturing Weapon

Standard Equipment: Goggles, Capturing Weapon (A long steel wire that he uses to restrain foes), and Caltrops

Intelligence: Aizawa is a competent if strict teacher. Due to the fact that his Quirk doesn't enhance his physical ability he is extremely adept in hand-to-hand combat techniques and can formulate new strategies on the fly. He is also savvy enough to bring equipment tailored to restraining his target, such as caltrops so that Shouto would not be able to free himself without falling into the spiked objects.

Weaknesses: His Quirk wears off if he shuts his eyes or if his eyes are obstructed from his target, If he uses his ability for a long period of time, his eyes start to dry out, forcing him to shut his eyes in time. Cannot nullify Mutation-Class Quirks such as superhuman strength and speed, Due to the aftereffects of his injuries sustained at the USJ, when Shouta activates and deactivates his Quirk, there is now an interval where his Quirk must recharge until he can use it again.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Erasing: Shouta's Quirk allows him to cancel the special powers and abilities of his target by looking at them. However, this only works on Emitter and Transformation-Type Quirks (i.e. shooting lightning and shapeshifting). It will not work on Mutation-Type abilities that are more innate in nature (such as super strength or super speed).

    • I don't think Aizawa would win this. His signature power nullification would be useless here, because Himura Kenshin technically does ...
    • Aizawa is High 8-C this is a stomp
  • What if....

    • it doesnt work if its not a direct glare, looking into a mirror wouldnt work
    • Is that a thing? I know it doesn't work if the opponent is hidden behind something (ex: a cloak), but would a reflection not work as well?
