Sometimes this enthusiastic side of her can drive others away.

The first time we actually see him is during the school festival, where he faces off against Midoriya during one-on-one battles.
His ability is one of the most interesting in the series. It consists in that if he asks a question and the person with whom he speaks answers it, Shinso will be able to control his thoughts and order him to do what he considers. However, he can activate it however he wants, meaning he can have a normal conversation without his ability getting in the way.
Students from other schools

The symbol of evil and archenemy of All Might. Shigaraki, better known as All for One, is the most powerful villain in the entire series. His identity is unknown, as is his intentions.

Dabi is one of the most important secondary villains in the series. He was one of the main antagonists during the School Trip Arc, a member of the Vanguard Action Squad.
His personality is selfless, and he doesn’t seem to be convinced of Shigaraki’s beliefs, rather joining the league of villains for having listened to the words of the assassin Stain.
Birthday: August 7
Alias: Himiko Toga
Himiko Toga showed up along with Dabi at the League headquarters after Stain’s death and words caused a sort of knock-on effect for the villains.
She is a happy-go-lucky young woman with murderous tendencies and sadism. The girl becomes obsessed with Midoriya as soon as she sees him the first time, showing that her idea of affectivity is twisted and perverse to the point of “possessing” or “becoming” the loved one, referring to her own ability.
Himiko ‘s Quirk is sinister in the way it is obtained, as she needs to have a sample of her target’s blood in order to transform into them and take their identity. The more blood she gets, the longer she can stay transformed.
Birthday: May 10
Another important member of the League of Villains, and one of the few whose previous identity is easily discovered very early in the series. He was a member of Vanguard Action Squad during the School Trip arc.
He is an interesting character, he is usually heard with conflicting opinions, supporting something first and then refusing the next second. His ability is to create clones, either of himself or other people, and even applies to things. However, he is limited to only two clones at a time, and these clones are not as durable as the first one made.

He is one of the most experienced villains in the League, as well as having an eccentric, talkative personality with a great sense of humor. He is extremely arrogant, either with his enemies or teammates. His ability was the cause of the heroes’ defeat during the school trip arc. This ability consists of compressing anything and turning it into a kind of glass ball, without doing any damage to the person or object. Also, this reduces the weight of whoever is subject to his ability.
By Nomu we mean the Nomu species, created by the League of Villains and All for One to confront All Might. The Nomu are created from deceased humans, which are then modified by All for One’s ability to create abilities and mix them, giving them distinct powers but making them lose rationality and intelligence, sacrificing this for brute force and extraordinary abilities.
They are sometimes referred to as artificial humans. The first Nomu we meet in the series has a perfect ability to counter One for All, which allows him to absorb All Might’s blows without taking any damage.

The head of the Shie Hassaikai mobster group and declared a “rival” of the League of Villains, due to their lack of organization and purpose. He is a man who suffers from mysophobia (fear of germs) and a sociopath obsessed with returning the world to its previous state, before his special abilities manifested.
Raised by a mobster to be his heir, he uses his granddaughter, Eri, a girl whose special ability becomes crucial to his plans.
