With season four of My Hero Academia looming ever closer, there are certain moments that fans just can’t wait to see. Between the trailer and the manga, we already have a good idea of what fights are going to be happening in season four. But that certainly hasn’t reduced our excitement at all! If anything, it’s been hyping up the fans more than ever.
Nobody knows exactly how much of the manga is going to fit into the next season – but we can make some educated guesses. And based on that, we know that we’re in for a season full of some seriously amazing fights. Here are the ten we’re most looking forward to.
This article has spoilers for the My Hero Academia Manga / season four.
10 Overhaul Vs. the League Of Villains
The two groups will come to blows at least twice more in the near future. One of those times results in Mr. Compress getting seriously injured. The other time…well, things go quite differently, thanks to the hero fight that occurred right beforehand.
9 Deku Vs. Nighteye
Unfortunately for Midoriya, Nighteye has a slight bias against him (for reasons he’ll reveal at this point). Thus Midoriya has to beat him (by snatching a stamp from Nighthawk’s hands) in order to have a solid chance at being accepted.
This fight showed Midoriya’s speed, but also his ability to process everything around him simultaneously. It’s an impressive feat. So while this ‘fight’ may not be the most intense one out there, it is still important to Deku’s character.
8 Fat Gum Agency Vs. Overhaul Created Villains
Fat Gum, Suneater, and Red Riot were just on a casual patrol when they came across some gang members equipped with weapons Overhaul had created. The fight was an intense one, with the team learning a lot about themselves and the enemies they’re facing.This was Kirishima’s first chance to truly shine as a hero, and he did an excellent job of it.
7 Suneater Vs. Three Villains
Suneater, the man who chronically self-doubts himself, takes on three villains all by himself. He does so because he’s fully aware that these antagonists were placed there in an attempt to slow the entire team down. It’s still a very brave thing he did.
The fight of Suneater versus Tota Setsuno, Yu Hojo, and Soramitsu Tabe is an intense one. There are moments when it seems like either side of the fight could win – causing more than a little bit of anxiety for the fans.
6 Fat Gum & Red Riot Vs. Rappa & Tengai
Not to say that it was an overwhelming victory on his part – the challenge and determination is what really gave Kirishima’s personality a chance to show off here. Our hero learned a lot about himself and about being a hero in this fight. But he didn’t back down. In fact, he impressed everybody with this one.
5 Nighteye Squad Vs. Toga & Twice
This fight does end relatively quickly, but it did give both antagonists a chance to show off why they’re truly dangerous. They go up against Nighteye, Deku, Rock Lock, and Eraser Head. The odds may make this one seem cut and dry, when it’s anything but.
4 Lemillion Vs. Two Villains
Mirio, feeling guilty for his perceived failure with saving Eri earlier, rushes in without any backup. And finds himself in a fight against Shin Menoto and Deidoro Sakiki. These two antagonists try Lemillion in ways he could never have anticipated – but he doesn’t back down from the fight. It’s during this fight that Lemillion reveals his super move, Phantom Menace.
3 Lemillion Vs. Overhaul
But nothing can be predictable when going up against harsh antagonists like Overhaul. This fight really pushes Lemillion to his limits, but man, this fight really does show off why he was the original intended to inherit One For All.
Nothing makes Lemillion back down in this fight, not even when the specific weapon Overhaul has been creating targets and affects him. It’s a heartbreaking and heartwarming battle, all in one.
2 Nighteye Squad Vs. Overhaul & Chronostasis
Nighteye believes that there’s no way they can save Eri and live. But Deku, being the determined hero he is, declares that he will change destiny and save the girl – and beat the villains. It’s an extremely powerful moment and is proof that Deku will one day be an amazing hero.
1 Deku Vs. Overhaul
Deku was able to go all out against Overhaul, and it’s a good thing. Even with Overhaul brought back to his normal human form (thanks, Eri), it still takes everything Deku has – and then some – to take down the notorious villain.
This is one of the most brilliant looking fights Deku has been involved in. It’s certainly on par with some of the fights All Might has been in. Proving that Deku will live up to the powers he’s inherited.
