DIGEST: 5 Strongest Class 1-B Students and their Quirks Explained - My Hero Academia

Written by: MJ Masilang | Published on: February 27, 2021 at 5:05 PM PHT (GMT+8)

In Kouhei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia, protagonist Izuku Midoriya goes to Japan’s most prestigious superhero school, UA High, and earns a spot in the elite Class 1-A. Obviously, this class is always in the limelight, but 1-A isn’t the only one that houses amazing hero students. Their counterpart, Class 1-B, is also full of talented individuals brimming with the same hope and potential of becoming pro-heroes.

But, who among these 20 students have proven themselves to be worth more than what they seem? For this list, we’ll be looking at 5 of 1-B’s, arguably, strongest students as well as how their quirk works.

NOTE: This following ranking is just an opinion of the author and may be different from your preferences. It may also contains spoilers as in-depth analysis of their abilities and quirks are included in the descriptions.


Hero Name: Lizardi

Quirk: Lizard Tail Splitter

Kicking off the rankings is Setsuna Tokage. She’s one of two students from Class 1-B who were recommended into the hero course, which is evidence to how skilled she really is. She’s a chatty and thoughtful girl who’s well-respected by her peers, who say that Setsuna’s the most skilled and talented in Class 1-B. Her quirk, Lizard Tail Splitter, allows her to split her body into, at most, 50 pieces and control them telekinetically. The usage of this quirk ranges from surveillance to long range combat. What makes Lizard Tail Splitter an effective quirk is how each piece is still fully functional on their own. Setsuna’s limbs are nearly untouchable when they are split because of their small size and high mobility.

However, there is a time limit on how long a piece can stay detached from her. Once that limit is reached, the body part will stop functioning. Setsuna can regenerate lost body parts, but it’s a tedious process that she avoids as much as possible by gathering the scattered parts before the time limit at the risk of her location being discovered.

In the recent Ultra Analysis Book, Setsuna’s overall stats are exceptionally high. She scored a C in Power and A in Speed, Technique, and Intelligence, establishing the fact that she’s a smart and creative fighter, and one of the most talented in her generation.
