A companion like Tenya Iida or Ochaco Uraraka is what Izuku is looking for. There is no shortage of potential new pals for him.
Even while My Hero Academia is a very action-packed shonen manga, there is still potential for character development. It’s no surprise that the main character, Izuku Midoriya, a bold, selfless, and diligent high school student, gravitates toward other like-minded individuals in his social circle.
Her greatest friend, Ochaco Uraraka, is one of Izuku’s closest confidants, and she strives to copy him. While Izuku’s best pals are Tenya and Mirio Togata, he’d like to make friends with everyone else in the anime world, too. Izuku can’t wait to meet all the new people out there.
1. Izuku Would Recognize Chad’s Heroic Heart Right Away (Bleach)
“Chad” Sado, the protagonist of this series, may not be the strongest character, but Izuku doesn’t care about that. Even though Chad’s strength can be used to protect the innocent from danger, he vows that he will never harm anyone with it. As a result of his difficult childhood, he has developed an attitude of semi-pacifism.
He is a devoted and fearless buddy of Ichigo Kurosaki, and the two of them may create a friendship of their own. Chad always stepped in to protect Izuku from Katsuki Bakugo’s bullying.
2. Alphonse Elric Has A Heart Of Gold To Match His Eyes & Hair (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
Several characters had a more positive view of Alphonse Elric than they did of Edward. When compared to Edward, Alphonse is tolerant, kind, generous, and has an excellent sense of humor. It’s easy to see why. He’s a magnet for everyone.
Alphonse’s heroic and conscientious use of alchemy would appeal to Izuku, and the two might easily become friends. Amazingly, though, despite the allure of the Philosopher’s Stone, Al refused to utilize it in order to resurrect his body. These stones should be regarded as desecrations.
3. Yuki Sohma Has A Wounded But Kind Heart (Fruits Basket)
In spite of Yuki Sohma’s personal baggage, Izuku and Yuki may form a strong bond if they ever met. Despite his sadness, Yuki is a nice and courageous young man who will always stand up for what is right.
In Yuki’s universe, there are no quirks; instead, he stands up for himself and the other zodiac members who have been verbally assaulted by Akito Sohma. To Izuku’s surprise, Matchi received a handshake from him as well. Hero: Yuki is a typical one.
4. Izuku Would See Himself In Iruma Suzuki (Welcome To Demon School, Iruma-Kun!)
When it comes to his own world, the unfortunate Iruma Suzuki is a lot like Izuku Midoriya. As children, both boys were born without any special skills, yet they attend magical schools populated by pupils with extraordinary powers and gifts. Izuku and Iruma, on the other hand, are doing their best to blend in and show great energy in the process.
A kind and considerate young man who always wants what’s best for others, even in his wicked form, Iruma is almost impervious to malice or wrath (due to his magical ring). Both Iruma and Izuku have a strong connection to Japan because of their shared ancestry.
5. Bolin Is An Earthbender With A Big Heart (The Legend Of Korra)
Like his element, many Earthbenders in this series are stubborn and tough, but unlike Toph Beifong or her highstrung daughter Lin, Bolin is an easygoing and fun-loving gentleman who sees the best in everything. Bolin and his brother Mako grew raised on the tough streets of Republic City, but it didn’t crush their spirit to succeed.
As a result, Izuku would be awed by Bolin’s “Quirk,” while also recognizing the boy’s altruistic and sensitive character. Bolin, on the other hand, would be awestruck by Izuku’s extraordinary bravery and tenacity in the face of overwhelming circumstances. In some ways, he’d be reminded of Korra.
6. Izuku Would Also See Himself In Rock Lee (Naruto)
It would be a great friendship if Izuku, Rock Lee, and the taijutsu teacher Iruma ever met. They all know what it’s like to be surrounded by gifted and powerful people like Shoto Todoroki and Neji Hyuga. Of course, Rock Lee would regard Izuku as a friendly rival.
However, even though Rock Lee is extremely focused on becoming the best taijutsu master in the world, he still has room for friends and allies, and Izuku is one of them. It’s possible that he and Izuku might learn a great deal from one another when it comes to fighting techniques and tactics.
7. Izuku & Yuji Itadori Have A Few Things In Common (Jujutsu Kaisen)
There are many similarities between Yuji Itadori and Izuku, the newest jujutsu sorcerer on the block. Sukuna and All Might both got tremendous power when they devoured it (a hair strand from All Might vs Sukuna’s fingertips).
Yuji, like Izuku, is dedicated to not only saving people’s life from curses, but also to safeguarding their happiness and well-being. When Yuji’s new companion Jinpei died, he was grieved, when most sorcerers would have been satisfied with a successful mission. Heroic figures such as Yuji and Izuku deserve a little more. ‘
8. Maki Oze Is Tough & Has A Great Sense Of Humor (Fire Force)
Because Maki Oze is a powerful yet well-balanced fire soldier, she is possibly the best supporting character in this series. Maki, like Lieutenant Hinawa, has a military history, which means she is extremely disciplined and has a strong sense of purpose.
Izuku would be impressed by Maki’s accomplishments and charmed by her lighthearted and carefree demeanor. Izuku, on the other hand, would leave a positive impression on Maki, despite the fact that he lacks the capacity to complement her own. One For All is a completely new concept.
9. Mirajane Strauss Would Be A Great Friend & Role Model (Fairy Tail)
Many members of the Fairy Tail guild would consider Izuku a friend and fight with him. Even still, some of these wizards are quirky or high-strung, and Izuku would be reluctant to become friends with them, like Juvia Lockser or Laxus Dreyar. Mirjane Strauss is an exception.
In contrast to her terrifying Take Over appearance, Mirajane has a soft demeanor and a mature mentality. She is strong, brave, compassionate, and completely loyal to her friends and family. It would be a huge honor for Mirajane and Izuku to have each other as friends.
10. Takemichi Hanagaki Has The Heart Of A Hero (Tokyo Revengers)
He’s just a regular boy with no extraordinary powers or talents, but Takemichi Hanagaki has a decent heart and is extremely brave given the situation. An amazing package comes from having his adult intellect in his youth’s physique. Impressed would be Izuku.
Takemichi is up against formidable odds and is in severe danger if he wants to make things right and save Hina Tachibana’s life. To understand him better, Izuku can’t help but want to do so (and teach him a few moves).
