My Hero Academia: Smash Rising was a 3D action RPG mobile game developed and published by Bandai Namco. It was the successor to 2017's My Hero Academia: Smash Tap.



Unlike its predecessor, Smash Rising's gameplay is an action RPG. Using a team of up to three characters, players will engage in combat with an opposing team also composed of up to three characters. The opposing team must be defeated in order to win or further progress if a mission has multiple rounds (up to 3).

Also deviating from its predecessor, the combat between the characters is completely automatic, and the characters' behavior in regards to how they attack and evade normally is uncontrollable by the player. With the use of fixed commands or skill cards, players are able to modify the offense and defense of their characters, allowing them to progress.

Character Units

Each playable character is represented by a unit. All units have a base set of stats that can be manipulated by placing cards on to it. The default stats of each unit can be raised by increasing its ranking through the use of badges.

Their AI behavior in-game can be affected using these preset commands:

  • Normal: Units focus and attack the nearest enemy. If they're hit by another enemy, their focus shifts to them.
  • Focus on the Boss: Units attack the boss of an enemy team.
  • Clear Out Mobs: Units attack the weakest enemy of the group, going in order of increasing strength after each one is defeated.
  • Preserve HP: Units avoid direct confrontation with enemies to preserve their HP. They are more likely to dodge enemy attacks, and rarely initiate attacks themselves.
  • Element Advantage: Units attack enemies that possess an element weaker to theirs. If there aren't any on the field, they default to Normal behavior.
  • Save Allies: Units attack enemies that are currently engaged in combat with their teammates.

Summoning Banners

Cards are summoned with the use of Hero Souls, which are spent on various summoning banners. It costs five Hero souls to summon one character on a banner, or 50 in order to make a full summon of ten characters at once. In rare cases, a full summon on a banner can cost 40 Hero Souls. The rarest units advertised on each banner correspond with a certain theme (i.e. Class 1-A, story arcs currently airing in the anime, etc.), a certain group of characters, or to advertise a new card. Some banners also have special conditions, such as receiving a guaranteed five-star card when performing a full summon.

Mission Types


X-Crisis (pronounced Cross-Crisis) are three round missions with a strong-than-average final round featuring the final boss featured on the banner. They can only be played with one character rather than up to three. During the battle, up to two other NPCs based on other players will appear to assist you in battle. These NPCs include the preset stats, AI behavior, and abilities their respective users applied to them. The X-Crisis missions have multiple tiers of increasing difficulty, which each increasing tier providing more lucrative rewards.


Help Quests

Help Quests are presented in two types. The first type (marked by blue text) is automatic. A character can be automatically selected and sent to handle the situation, with varying wait times. Each of these Help Quests also list three characters with varying percentages next to their icon, representing a higher chance of receiving extra rewards after the quest by using this character.

The second type (marked by red text) are completed by sending characters to a mission. Similar to the first type, using certain characters on the team will wield a higher chance of receiving extra rewards.

New Help Quests appear after old ones are completed.
