My Hero Academia Filler and Episode List: The Complete Guide

The anime series My Hero Academia began airing in 2016 and is still ongoing. The show has a total of 102 episodes in 5 seasons. The series had only 3 reported filler episodes, so its filler percentage is extremely low, only 3%. In today’s guide, we will let you know those My Hero Academia filler episodes as well as a whole episode list.

The manga series has been adapted into an anime television series produced by Bones. The first season of My Hero Academia aired from April 3 to June 26, 2016, on TBS, MBS, and other JNN stations in ‘Nichigo’ timeslot at 5 pm on Sundays in Japan. The second season aired from April 1 to September 30, 2017, on NTV and YTV, with the staff and cast from the first season returning to reprise their roles. The third season aired from April 7 to September 29, 2018. The fourth season aired from October 12, 2019, to April 4, 2020. The fifth season premiered on March 27, 2021.

My Hero Academia’s story takes place in a world where children have been developing superpowers called “Quirks” at a very early age. Experts estimate that about 80% of the human population has a Quirk at some point during their lives. Unless two people are closely related, it is extremely unlikely to find two people with the exact same quirk. It is because of these abilities that a new type of people has emerged: Heroes, who battle against individuals who have evil intentions and who use the abilities for immoral or illegal purposes, called Villains. Additionally, Heroic work-level heroes are recognized as Pro Heroes.

What are My Hero Academia fillers about?

This part includes big spoilers for three My Hero Academia filler episodes. You can read them in case you don’t want to or don’t have time to watch My Hero Academia fillers.

Game Start

At the League of Villains hideout, Tomura and Kurogiri watch a summer broadcast on All Might. Kurogiri turns it off almost immediately. Tomura says that he has figured out why Izuku Midoriya and Hero Killer: Stain irritate him so much. All Might gives everyone a sense of hope because of his heroic deeds and the smile on his face. Tomura leaves the hideout. He thinks to himself, planning to make a world without All Might and show society how fragile justice really is.

Following the end of the semester, Izuku continues to train in his apartment. It still feels surreal to him to have All Might’s power coursing through him. He is interrupted when suddenly Denki Kaminari and Minoru Mineta arrive at his door and ask him to train at the pool before the training camp arrives. At U.A. High School, Shota and Vlad King review the Quirks of their respective students from Class 1-A and Class 1-B. Izuku, Denki, and Minoru arrive to ask if they can use the pool, which Shota confirms.

Denki and Minoru overhead the girls talking in one of their last classes. Since Class 1-A is not permitted to go on vacations, the girls decided to use the school pool. Denki and Minoru only invited Izuku so they could get permission to see the girls in their bikinis. However, Izuku invites all the boys of Class 1-A to participate in endurance training. The girls are present but in school-issued swimsuits. While Denki is dismayed, Minoru is somewhat satisfied.

While the girls play volleyball, the boys take a break from intense endurance training lead by Tenya Ida. During which, Izuku and Tenya remember their path to becoming friends with one another. Eijiro Kirishima and Katsuki Bakugo abruptly arrive and Katsuki challenges Izuku to a fight. Izuku refuses, but Tenya decides to hold a competition to see who can swim fifty meters the fastest. The boys go in groups, but most of them use their Quirks to reach the other end of the pool rather than swimming. Izuku swims and uses his Quirk to defeat even Tenya who uses his Recipro Burst technique. After finishing, they both notice Shoto Todoroki. All three of them once again vow to become the heroes they wish to be.

All Might meets with Detective Tsukauchi to discuss the recent movements involving League of Villains. Meanwhile, the final race between Izuku, Katsuki, and Shoto is about to begin. Before they can begin, though, Shota arrives and kick all the students out of the pool area. Katsuki and Eijiro walk home together. Katsuki claims he is angry Shota stopped their race because he will never allow Izuku and Shoto to beat him. Izuku returns to Takoba Municipal Beach Park, where he meets All Might. The number one hero reminds his protégé to train hard at forest lodge, as one day he may have to take his place as the Symbol of Peace.

During the night, Shota and Vlad King discuss that the location of the training camp has been changed to protect the students. Tomura gives someone a call to tell them a “new game” will be starting soon.

Class 1-A

Shoto Todoroki is surrounded by ten students from Seijin High School. Their red-clad leader calls Shoto overconfident for working alone. Shoto responds with a fire attack and two students negate his attack with their water-based Quirks. Then he defends with his ice but the students counter by throwing large items to break it. Their strategy is to negate both of Shoto’s elements with their various Quirks.

Shoto manages to get away after the engagement fills the area with steam. He realizes the labyrinth-like area their fighting in must have real features built into it. The Seijin students are drawn to a decoy flame and then Shoto uses his ice to break a tank above them. By using his fire on it as well, Shoto manages to create an explosion that incapacitates his rivals.

Victorious, Shoto freezes them and then tags their weak points to pass the first test. Shoto walks away and ponders working on using both his elements at the same time because switching dulls his movements. The targets on his body tell him to go to the waiting room.

Meanwhile, Saiko Intelli and her classmates set a trap for Class 1-A students entering their building. Shoto enters the waiting room and notices Inasa talking to someone about Stampman. He tries to recall Inasa at the entrance exam but doesn’t remember him being there. Inasa notices Shoto and glares at him from across the room.

Momo Yaoyorozu, Tsuyu Asui, Kyoka Jiro, and Mezo Shoji enter a building after failing to find the rest of their classmates. Kyoka hears people ascending the building from below until her ears are injured by a sudden blast of music. Saiko and her classmates enter the elevator after completing “phase one”.

Outside, another student uses a slingshot to crack the windows of the room Momo and company are in so that they can’t see outside. Momo notices the enemy is sealing off Kyoka and Mezo’s Quirks that are good for detecting people. She surmises that the enemy is trying to keep their group trapped inside the room and are likely right outside the door. Kyoka recklessly tries to attack and she’s injured by the sniper outside the building. Then the air vents start pouring in cold air that forces Tsuyu to sleep. The enemy students weld the other escape door shut and force Momo to try and think of an escape plan.

Saiko has used her IQ Quirk to outmaneuver Momo and her group up until now. She expects that Momo will overuse her Quirk in order to stop the cold air vents inside the room. Saiko’s plan is to make her overuse Creation so they can defeat her group when all their Quirks have been nullified. She gains inspiration from Izuku’s courage during their mission to rescue Katsuki from the League of Villains and realizes that she has to save her classmates.

Momo asks her friends to endure the cold and produces headphones for them to wear. Then she produces a high-powered amp. Saiko readies her allies to storm the room but is surprised when her rival students counter with a high-frequency sonic waves attack. All of the Seiai students except for Saiko are sleeping because of a large amp created by Momo to amplify Kyoka’s Quirk. The Class 1-A students leave the room to find Momo’s plan was successful. However, Saiko hides behind the door and then locks herself and Momo back inside the room. Saiko admits she’s surprised Momo would go with such a high-risk tactic rather than the predictable route.

Momo can’t move as well from overusing her Quirk and Saiko tries to tag her targets to make her fail. Momo counters by handcuffing their arms together. She buys enough time for Mezo to break down the door. Tsuyu rushes in and uses her tongue to restrain Saiko’s other arm. Saiko is shocked that Momo’s allies came to her rescue because they could’ve passed without her. Kyoka, Tsuyu, and Mezo explain that they would never leave their friend behind and Momo follows up by saying that’s just how Class 1-A is. Impressed by the U.A. students, Saiko admits defeat.

Katsuki Bakugo, Eijiro Kirishima, and Denki Kaminari end up in a separate city-like district and are confronted by Seiji Shishikura. He attacks Katsuki with his Quirk but Eijiro jumps in the way and gets transformed into a lump of flesh. Katsuki challenges the Shiketsu student head-on. Izuku Midoriya, Ochaco Uraraka, and Hanta Sero talk about their situation and how rival students are starting to split up. Izuku decides to act as a decoy so Ochaco and Hanta can restrain their pursuers.

Seiji tells Katsuki and Denki that Shiketsu students wear their hats out of obligation to properly represent their school. Katsuki gets annoyed with Seiji’s talks about obligation and challenges him to fight. Seiji says that students like Katsuki ruin U.A.’s dignity and the two clash in battle. Izuku moves out and tries to draw his opponents close together.

Emi asks Shota if he wants some trick gum and he refuses. Shota says it’s annoying he can’t tell who passes and fails the exam. Emi asks if he’s worried and Shota explains that two of his students have a big effect on the rest of the class. They aren’t leaders or the most popular, but Izuku and Katsuki’s passion inspires everyone in the class and raises the standard for success. Izuku’s distraction allows Hanta and Ochaco to restrain a few other students. Katsuki uses his new special move to counter Seiji’s assault. Shota finishes by saying he’s not worried about his students, and in fact, he’s excited to see what they can do because they’re Class 1-A.

The Scoop on U.A. Class 1-A

A newspaper office, Juko News is trying to tell a story about All Might’s retirement but the Editor-in-Chief wants a scoop since they are the last to write about the subject with regard to competition. The Freelance Journalist, Taneo Tokuda, arrives to help turn it into a good story. Analyzing the message of All Might after his fight against One For All, he thinks that it is not a warning to other villains, as everyone believes. He believes that All Might’s last words are actually a message towards a student of the U.A. which he has chosen as his successor, telling him that it’s his turn to take up his mantle.

The Editor-in-Chief asks that he already have an idea of who that is. Taneo replies that at first, he thought it could be Mirio Togata of The Big 3. However, due to All Might and Sir Nighteye’s partnership ending, Taneo believes his successor is actually someone in Class 1-A. The Editor-in-Chief assures Taneo that she will obtain him permission to interview class 1-A, but in return, he will only provide the scoop to her paper.

Shota introduces Taneo to Class 1-A.

Taneo arrives in Heights Alliance to interview Class 1-A for the newspaper. Shota Aizawa explains to his students that Nezu granted permission for the interview thinking it would be good for their parents and guardians to see them all living happily in the dorms. Taneo introduces himself and tells them that he will basically take some photos of his daily life at school and ask some questions about them. He also reminds Shota that the principal gave him orders not to interfere with his reporting. Shota notices he might be up to something but allows him to continue anyway. He records Class 1-A’s daily lives and reviews their Quirks. After he’s finished, he narrows down the possible candidates for All Might’s successor to just Izuku Midoriya.

In the afternoon, while it was raining, All Might goes to the bedrooms of Class 1-A, bringing some snacks to share. He meets Izuku outside who is training on his own. Izuku asks how he is doing. All Might tells him that he was in the hospital for a regular check-up, and when he returned to the U.A. He decided to buy something to eat in a store. The storekeeper was so happy for his presence that he allowed him to take all the meat buns he wants and even gave him his umbrella to shelter from the rain. Then, they talk about his upcoming role to surpass the Symbol of Peace. All Might leaves promising that he will start training him tomorrow.

Taneo noticed them and when All Might leaves, he has a conversation with Izuku. He tells Izuku that he is a fan of All Might and that he will be forever grateful for everything he has done. He asks Izuku if he knows the bombing 18 years ago at an industrial complex. Izuku replies that yes, it was an event where All Might saved all the workers. Taneo tells him that one of them was his father and that he was present when All Might rescued him. He was so excited to see his dad safe that he accidentally took a picture of the scene. All Might not only saved his father but also inspired him to take pictures and write stories about heroes.

Tenao confesses even he worries about the rising evil in the absence of the Symbol of Peace, but he thinks there is still hope and shows Izuku a snapshot of him talking to All Might a few minutes ago. Izuku is surprised because Taneo not only doesn’t have a camera but he even printed it out. Taneo explains that his Quirk allows him to take pictures from a camera lens that spawns anywhere on his body. Taneo shares with Izuku how he discovered Izuku was All Might’s successor using various pieces of evidence. He even reveals that he talked to Kota Izumi.

Despite correctly deducing that Izuku is All Might’s successor, he decides not to write the story out of respect for Izuku and admiration for All Might. His real reason for being there that he didn’t even tell his paper about was that he just wanted to know, himself, that there was hope for the future despite All Might’s retirement, and thanks Izuku. Before leaving, he decides to take a selfie with Izuku, promising that he is going to keep it inside his body until he publishes his book about him. After the departure of Taneo, Ochaco Uraraka goes out to tell Deku that dinner is ready, and asks him what he was talking to the reporter, although she forgets the matter when she knows that All Might had brought meat buns to share with Class 1-A.

Taneo returns to Juko TV and pretends that he hasn’t discovered All Might’s successor, apologizing to the Editor-in-Chief for jumping to the wrong conclusion. Even though he isn’t able to give Juzo News the story he promised, he still gives them a different scoop they can run: All Might eating meat buns. Editor-in-Chief loves the idea.

Later on, Twice is seen driving Overhaul to the League of Villains.
