Dungeons & Dragons' alignment system, which describes individuals as combinations of chaotic, lawful, neutral, evil, and good, is a useful way for analyzing fictional characters. It's not a flawless system, especially when those characters are more complex, but it's still a fun way to look at things.
For this list, we'll be talking about where the characters from My Hero Academia fall in the alignment system. The villainous Tomura Shigaraki is clear example of chaotic evil - all he wants to do is destroy things. Meanwhile, protagonist Izuku Midoriya is neutral good - he's willing to do whatever it takes to protect the people around him, whether that means following the rules or breaking them.

Tenya Iida - Lawful Good
To Tenya Iida, nothing is more important than following the rules - a trait that leaves him constantly frustrated with his more chaotic classmates. This doesn't mean he won't break the rules occasionally himself: when his brother is attacked by Stain, he goes after him alone despite not being a licensed hero. Lawful Good people place a premium on law and order, but will deviate if the law doesn't allow them to do what they know is right.An accurate alignment?
Tomura Shigaraki - Chaotic Evil
Tomura Shigaraki might be following All For One's plan to a degree, but the majority of his villainous actions are motivated by the pure desire to indiscriminately destroy everything around him. His quirk, Decay, is designed to do exactly that - everything he touches disintegrates, and after some horrifying childhood experiences of his quirk going out of control, he believes that his purpose is to ruin everything.An accurate alignment?
Himiko Toga - Chaotic Evil
Himiko Toga is a member of the League of Villains, and while she's mostly down with the cause, it's not because she agrees with any system - it's because she wants to be free to do whatever she wants. Why, then, is she chaotic evil instead of chaotic neutral? Because the things she wants to do largely revolve around stabbing the people she likes.An accurate alignment?
Stain - Lawful Evil
With his strict code of ethics that he adheres to no matter what the personal cost might be, Stain is definitely lawful. Unlike some lawful evil characters, Stain doesn't exploit an existing system for nefarious ends. Instead, he takes his own beliefs to their most heinous extreme: if hero society is rotten, he will destroy as many heroes as possible. His actions create chaos, but for Stain, that's beside the point.An accurate alignment?
