One of the best things about My Hero Academia are the amazing and diverse characters that the series has to offer. The creator, Kohei Horikoshi, never seems to run out of creative ideas when it comes to designing heroes and their unique quirks. Therefore, it's not surprising that the popular series has inspired fans to create their own original MHA character designs. 

Many artists on DeviantArt were challenged to create their own My Hero Academia-inspired character designs. These fan designs replicate the series' character profiles that often appear during the anime's commercial break. Fans also made sure to include in-depth bios about these characters, such as their hero names and quirk descriptions. 

This list introduces some of the best fanmade MHA character designs from DeviantArt, ranked by your votes. Vote up the characters that you wish were canon!
