The League of Villains is a criminal organization in My Hero Academia that aims to disrupt the peace created by All Might and destroy the Hero Association in the process. They're led by a notorious and quite possibly the strongest Villain of all time, All For One.
The League of Villains has become the main antagonistic group in the series right from the beginning, and over time, they're only becoming stronger and more prominent. This organization has become home to some of the strongest of Villains in My Hero Academia. Here are 10 things you didn't know about the League of Villains.
10 Its Leaders
While the League of Villains was originally created and run by the infamous Villain All For One, it has been led by other people besides him as well. After All For One's defeat to All Might at Kamino and his consequent capture, Shigaraki Tomura, his disciple, became the second leader of the League of Villains in the series.
Along with Shigaraki Tomura, Kurogiri serves as the second-in-command of this organization, although he's under arrest as well. It's possible that there may be more leaders of this organization in the future.
9 Its Members
The League of Villains has been home to a lot of Villains over the years. Among them are 15 named members who have been properly fleshed out and include the likes of Dabi, Toga, and Twice among others. Other than the named members, it was shown that there used to be 72 more Villains who were associated with the League of Villains.
According to reports, they were all eventually captured and arrested. It remains to be seen how their capture went about, but it certainly means that the Heroes aren't taking this organization lightly at all.
8 The Arrested Members
Along with the 72 unknown Villains who are said to belong to the League of Villains, several other of its members have been arrested as well. Out of the 15 main members, 5 are known to be in prison right now. All For One was arrested after his defeat to All Might at Kamino, while Kurogiri was caught by Gran Torino during the Shie Hassaikai arc.
Other members, such as Moonfish, Mustard, and Muscular were all members of the Vanguard Action Squad of the League of Villains and were captured during their attempt to capture Bakugo Katsuki.
7 The Deceased
The League of Villains hasn't tasted defeat many times, and as such, never lost a lot of its members completely. While many have been arrested, only one is known to have died. During the Shie Hassaikai arc, Kai Chisaki became the first person to kill a League of Villains member when he deconstructed the body of Magne.
Being one of the active members of the League of Villains, Magne was very powerful, and her Quirk abilities were outstanding as well. Magne's death was avenged by Shigaraki Tomura, who made sure that Chisaki paid the price for what he'd done to her.
6 The Associates
Like every other major organization, the League of Villains had multiple associates as well, although few of them are known for now. Giran remains to be one of their most important associates as he is responsible for bringing new recruits to the League of Villains.
When it comes to skill, Giran is just a C-Rank Villain himself, which explains why he doesn't join the League of Villains himself. Other than him, Hawks, the current Number 2 Hero, also serves as one of the associates of the League of Villains, however, he has ulterior motives in doing so.
5 Their Enemies
The primary goal of the League of Villains is to destroy everything that All Might has created, and in the process, erase the Hero Association as well. Consequently, the Heroes are the biggest enemies of this organization. However, they're definitely not the only threat this organization faces.
The League of Villains has also crossed paths with the Shie Hassaikai who were led by the enigmatic Villain, Overhaul, and the Meta Liberation Army, led by Rikiya Yotsubashi. In fact, they've fought against both these organizations at one point or another.
4 Their Allies
Often walking down their own path, the League of Villains usually don't feel the need to join hands with anyone. However, that's not to say they've never done it. At a certain point, the League of Villains, under Shigaraki Tomura, joined forces with the Shie Hassaikai, only to turn on them at the very end.
Furthermore, after completely winning over the Meta Liberation Army, the League of Villains has now joined forces with them as well. Their leader, Rikiya Yotsubashi now serves under the man who humbled him, Shigaraki Tomura.
3 The Paranormal Liberation Front
After fighting against the Meta Liberation Army, their leader, Rikiya Yotsubashi, better known as Re-Destro, asked all his underlings to submit to Shigaraki Tomura. Believing he's the man to lead them towards their goal of unregulated Quirk usage for everyone, Rikiya joined forces with the League of Villains, creating a massive Villain organization known as the Paranormal Liberation Front in the process.
The leader of this organization is none other than Shigaraki Tomura and along with him, there are several Lieutenants of this organization as well, most of which belong to the League of Villains.
2 The Nomu
Thanks to Daruma Ujiko, one of their most influential members, the League of Villains has been able to deploy the Nomu in battle. The Nomu are extremely powerful creatures who possess multiple Quirks, although their strength often varies. The Hosu Nomu were rather weaker in comparison to the one that appeared at U.S.J and fought against All Might.
The strongest Nomu to have appeared in My Hero Academia to date is the High-End Nomu who fought against Endeavor recently. According to the recent revelation, there are several such Nomu in development right now, and they likely possess tremendous powers as well.
1 Their Power
Following the events at Deika City, the League of Villains, now known as the Paranormal Liberation Front, is quite possibly the strongest organization in the world of My Hero Academia. Their strength likely surpasses that of the Hero Association. With 100,000+ members led by 9 Lieutenants, this organization is certainly a threat to the peace that All Might worked extremely hard to create.
Their leader, Shigaraki Tomura, is one of the strongest characters in the entire series right now and his powers are only going to grow once his 'special' surgery is completed. Undoubtedly, the League of Villains is more than likely to see their goals come true.
