What the heck, Kyoka?! Your old man's just tryin' to look like a good, concerned parent here!!
Kyotoku Jiro to Kyoka Jiro in "Home Visits"

Kyotoku Jiro ( () (ろう) (きょう) (とく) Jirō Kyōtoku?) is Kyoka Jiro's father and the husband of Mika Jiro.


Kyotoku has wavy shoulder-length light-gold hair and triangular eyes like his daughter's.



Kyotoku tried to project a stern attitude against Shota Aizawa and All Might, but in truth he is actually a very emotional and easygoing person.

Like his daughter, Kyotoku likes rock music and he is also a composer.


Kyotoku and Mika with a young Kyoka.

At some point, Kyotoku fell in love with Mika Jiro's musical talents, which led to them getting married and have a daughter named Kyoka Jiro. He also adopted Mika's family name Jiro.

Kyotoku and Mika's love for music was inherited by Kyoka who started playing instruments at a young age. Believing that her parents' desire was for her to follow their footsteps and become a musician, Kyoka was apologetic when she confessed that she wanted to be a hero. However, Kyotoku and Mika dismissed her apologies and expressed their support for Kyoka to pursue her dreams.[1]


Hideout Raid Arc

Kyotoku is first seen confronting Shota Aizawa and All Might over their request to take Kyoka to live in U.A. High. However, Kyoka showed up and revealed that her parents had already decided in advance to let her go, which led Kyotoku to start bickering with her for ruining his concerned parent act.[2]


Musical Talent: Kyotoku is a musical composer, meaning he has knowledge about music theory.
