My Hero Academia: 10 Small Might Cosplays That Are Truly Heroic

The anime My Hero Academia has a multitude of lovable characters, though few fail to be as popular as the infamous All Might. The UA high teacher is the mentor of young Izuku Midoriya, the main character of the show. In his empowered form, All Might is a large, muscley crime-fighting machine. He fights villains with a smile on his face as the number one hero in the nation.

After All Might's fight with the villain All For One, he was left with irreparable damage. His powered down form is affectionately known to the fans of the show as Small Might. Primarily, All Might's powers begin to fade more once he begins to transfer his powers to young Izuku, but because of his last and final fight with All For One, he is trapped in his powered down Small Might form most of the time. Fans everywhere have had a blast cosplaying characters from the series, Small Might included. In this list, we are going to check out 10 Small Might cosplays that are truly heroic!

10 "Now, it's your turn."

First up, Colaman20 from Instagram inspires us with this photo. The hero re-enacts the pose from the tear-jerking Season 3 episode 11. All Might finishes off One For All and reminds Izuku Midoriya that his time as a hero will be coming soon.

Manyย interpreted this quote as a threat to villains, but fans consider this as All Might passing down the torch to his young apprentice.

9 "Everyone has it in them to be a hero."

Lostdreamz82 makes the perfect Small Might. Their oversized tee and extra-large belt buckle give us perfect Small Might vibes. The wig for this cosplay looks incredibly accurate, too! The blowing wind adds a nice dramatic touch to the photography and sets the tone.

Downfall_cosplay gives us a very realistic version of Small Might. Instead of using special effects makeup, the cosplayer darkens his eyes and leaves the rest of his face seemingly untouched.

When you slide to the next photo, an anime accurate oversized belt buckle steals the frame, making Small Might seem even smaller.ย  The wig frames his face in a complimentary Small Might fashion and his pose leaves us to believe he walked off of a My Hero Academia live-action set.

7 "Detroit Smash!"

This Small Might cosplay is truly Plus Ultra! Seeraa_sataan gives us an amazing makeup look that is almost identical to the anime, teeth included! The contacts in this cosplay draw attention to the face in a striking manner.

This pose gives us the illusion that powered up All Might has just poofed into the powered down Small Might. Seera_sataan's feed features moreย My Hero Academia characters and other anime cosplays.

6 "My power has been declining faster than I expected...But I must do this. Why? Because I am...the Symbol of Peace!"

No.might makes a stellar Small Might. The creative Instagram name adds to their cosplay!ย  No.might says," Getting into this cosplay is extremely fun, especially the makeup. It can take up to an hour to get into the full cosplay, but you can easily play around with makeup styles to make it quicker or to suit your style."

The teenager avidly cosplays My Hero Academiaย characters.

5 "Hey villain, have you ever heard these words? Go beyond! PLUS...ULTRA!

We can practically hear Small Might's wheezy cough just by looking at this photo! The definition in schpog_plays' cheekbones gives the sunken expression of our favorite hero.

The attention to detail in the neckline makes all the difference in this makeup. The moody lighting in photography also adds character to this cosplay. On schpog_play's Instagram feed you can find many more Small Might photos, including an awesome Small Might and Inko set!

4 "Go beyond...Plus Ultra!"

Next, Edgelordius_reborn uses 3D printing to achieve their Small Might. 3D printing is an awesome way to utilize technology in cosplay. It also typically gives a more polished finish than EVA foam, but both options have their benefits.

3D printing the mask was definitely an innovative choice in the process of this cosplay. From the clothing, the 3D printed cosplay prop, the photography, and overall editing this cosplay captivates us with its realism!

3 "Even if you are scared, smile as if to say that everything is fine!"

Yessyeni wows us with her Small Might.ย  The facial shading makeup looks fabulous and the use of liquid latex here is phenomenal. Very few Small Might cosplays push the limits by showing his weak spots in the way Yessyeni does and it pays off in a big way! All of the work this cosplayer puts in paints a unique picture of our beloved Small Might.

2 "Turn to the sun, and the shadow will be behind you."

Instagram user, xheeheex is no stranger when it comes to using prosthetics in extravagant cosplays. They have a multitude of fantastic and creative cosplays on their feed.

In highlights, you can find a ton of cosplay tips and tricks along with a question and answer portion that is very helpful to anyone from new to intermediate cosplayers.ย ย Xheeheex is also a master wig worker, which explains the perfection of the Small Might wig! This version of Small Might is truly heroic!

1 "You too can be a hero."

Lastly, Ryanrybot brings it home with this phenomenal Small Might cosplay. The liquid latex he used in this cosplay makes an interesting feature. The attention to the smaller details, like the contacts and makeup shading brings this one home.

The moody lighting in photography and the fierce look Ryanrybot gives the camera captures a very pensive Small Might that looks like he is ready to deliver some inspirational words. On his feed, you can find a highlight with his process of transforming into Small Might, as well as Small Might and All Might photo that is truly incredible.
