Izuku Midoriya also known by his hero name Deku is a superhero and the main protagonist of the anime series My Hero Academia, created by Kōhei Horikoshi.

In the series, he is a geeky and ambitious high school student and the holder of 9 or “One For All”.

Originally born without any “weirdness” to call himself, Izuku nevertheless grew up with aspirations to become a superhero in his own right.

Nicknamed “Deku” by his childhood classmate, rival, and high school bully Katsuki.

Izuku is first seen in My Hero Academia as a 4-year-old boy who is about to be beaten up by three other classmates, one of whom is Katsuki “Kacchan” Bakugo, who has the ability to create explosions.

Izuku becomes an encouraging influence on his classmates, such as letting the Shoto class prodigy Todoroki release the trauma that prevents him from using his powers to the fullest.

He is always wearing a standard male uniform, a light gray jacket on a white shirt and dark green pants, along with a red tie that is not tied correctly, making it shorter than it should. Izuku usually wears great red boots.
