Top Strongest Villains In My Hero Academia So Far, Ranked!

My Hero Academia has pitted some intimidating villains against our spirited heroes – be it pro Hero or even the students.

The spectrum of power that they have displayed is concerning, but it adds a dramatic dimension to fights.

Therefore, here’s an assembly of the strongest villains – My Hero Academia – brought its audience.

10Himiko Toga

Himiko serves as a commander to Vanguard Action Intelligence Regiment: Carmine along with Sceptic.

Himiko is mentally unstable and has a warped sense of the world, which places her perfectly as a villain.

Himiko’s quirk is Transform, which allows her to transform into a lookalike of a person – and even match their voice.

This requires her to drink the blood of the person – the more blood she drinks, the more time of access she gets. After her Awakening, she’s able to use their Quirks too. 

9Tomoyasu Chikazoku

Tomoyasu Chikazoku, also known as Sceptic, currently serves as a commander to Vanguard Action Intelligence Regiment: Carmine along with Himiko.

His Quirk Anthropomorph allows him to turn any human-sized object into the lookalike of any person. He’s able to control these puppets through a laptop.

Sceptic comes quite useful for strategic and technical moves. He shows adept intelligence and manipulation skills. 


Geten is a villain that currently serves as a leader to Vanguard Action Guerrilla Warfare Regiment: Violet along with Dabi.

Geten is a valuable asset as he’s able to gather, move, and use ice to attack or defend. He’s able to manipulate the temperature of the water and turn it into ice.

The range of his ice manipulation spans almost an entire town. The name of his quirk is unknown, but it is quite power-driven. 


Rikiya Yotsubashi is a former leader of the Mega Liberation Army that has established himself as one of the strongest villains in the series.

His Quirk, Stress, allowed him to channel all the stress in his body into raw power. Ergo, the angrier he is, the stronger he gets.

The implication of this is he’s unstable. With the 100% output of his power, he’s able to flatten a portion of a city. Rikiya currently works under Shigaraki at Paranormal Liberation Front.


Dabi is the commander for the Vanguard Action Guerrilla Warfare Regiment: Violet along with Geten.

He’s been nicknamed as Blueflame by Geten and holds the quirk unofficially named as Cremation. He has a fluid control over a highly damaging blue fire, which can incinerate people and objects quite easily.

Blue Flame alludes to a fire burning that a very high temperature, which makes Dabi quite dangerous. Dabi holds the ingenuity to strategize and hold ground against multitudes of Pro Heroes. 

5Nomu (High-End)

The Nomus are greatly variant in terms of their power, but the strongest on the Nomu spectrum is High-End.

High-End is an extremely powerful sentient being that battled Endeavor and Hawks recently. During the battle, Endeavor was forced to take help from Hawks and had to push himself beyond his limits to defeat High-End Nomu.

Endeavor, being one of the top 5 strongest Heroes in My Hero Academia, emerged from this battle, gravely injured.

4Shigaraki Tomura

Shigaraki Tomura is a leader of the Paranormal Liberation Front, and his journey is guiding him towards becoming a fearful villain.

After the reawakening of his quirk, Shigaraki can spread decay without any physical touch and at a more exponential rate.

The League of Villains were unable to defeat him despite engaging him for days. The Police and Pro-Heroes are also unable to put him down, which speaks volumes of his strength – which the series will look into in the future. 

2All for One

All for One is the one that has stirred most chaos and turmoil within the society of My Hero Academia.

He is the one that is strong enough to battle All Might equally. Despite losing to him twice, All For One has managed to survive.

He possessed multiple quirks that expanded the inventory of his attacks or strategies. Although he is defeated and sent to Tartarus – he’s marked himself at the top of this chain.

It is claimed that his power exceeds that of All for One, which is profoundly troubling as the latter remained the main antagonist of the series for the most part.

Not much is known about Nine’s powers, but he does possess the ability to steal quirks like All for One. Nine currently holds 8 Quirks.
