5th place: USJ Nomu

Of all the genetically modified nomus that have made life difficult for the Yuei troops so far, the monster from the Unforeseen simulation Joint-Arc is the most threatening. By the whims of science in a Monster with a pitch-black body and a protruding brain transformed, his blows are stronger than a locomotive and he himself is almost invulnerable.

The mix of the two specialties "Shock absorption" and "Super regeneration" ensures that the Nomu not only absorbs attacks, but can also heal severed limbs and serious injuries in the blink of an eye. So the attacks of the Yuei students could absolutely not harm him and it was up to All Might to avert worse with a courageous attack.

4th place: Tomura Shigaraki

As one of the first major villains in the series, Shigaraki is gifted with the ability to "decay." Whether organic or inorganic, if he touches any object with his bare hands, he loosens it into its constituent parts and is thus able to effortlessly cause a real bloodbath. Always a victim of fear and contempt through his strength, he developed a severe hatred of all living things that does not even stop at his own existence.

So, as the current leader of the Rogue League, he tries to smash the structures of rule of the world and all through that Eliminate the superheroes to be traced back to what he believed to be the right path.

Known as the "hero killer", villain Stain is a symbol of fear and terror. He hides behind his ninja mask no hideous hatred to the knights of justice, but rather to those who use a noble disposition as an excuse for selfish deeds.

He can put the matter back together in whatever way he likes and for example Covering up murdersby restoring the corpses without a scratch. His increased stamina and speed make Overhaul a formidable face-to-face opponent.

1st place: All for One

The villain of the villains and by far the worst threat that the people of Japan have been exposed to so far is All for One - the arch-rival All Mights. As someone who always demands something in return from others for his help, he is exactly opposed to the selfless disposition of a hero and over the years has developed into a psychopath who takes his crimes as part of a sick moral concept justified as well.

With his specialty, which allows him to take on the skills of others, he gradually transformed into a downright monster, whose powers gave the hero no chance of victory.
