My Hero Academia: Smash Tap ( (ぼく) のヒーローアカデミア スマッシュタップ Boku no Hīrō Akademia Sumasshu Tappu?) was a mobile game developed by Bandai Namco that lets the player chose heroes and fight villains with them by tapping the screen. The game was followed by My Hero Academia: Smash Rising.



The core gameplay is set from an overhead perspective on small, maze-like maps based on various locations in the My Hero Academia series, each containing a variety of obstacles that players must encounter. Using a team of two heroes (a main one and a sidekick), players will engage in combat with villains, who must be defeated in order to progress. Conditions for each stage vary between three goals - defeat the boss, rescue civilians, or defeat a certain number of villains.

Summoning Banners

Characters 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. The rarest units advertised on each banner often correspond with a certain theme (i.e. Class 1-A, a specific character, Smashfest, swimsuits, etc.). Some banners also had special conditions, such as the number of souls spent for each full summon increasing for a higher chance of pulling a rare unit, or having a fixed pool of units to summon from.


  • Hero Coins: The main currency of the game. Used to buy Gadgets and other items. They can be obtained through gameplay, rewards or selling cards.
  • Hero Souls: The main currency of the game, and are mainly used to summon characters. They can also function in substitute of other items if there aren't any available to the player (e.g. taiyaki to replenish stamina, tickets for special in-game events, etc), or as a continue in the event that all players in a game are defeated. Hero Souls can be obtained through daily rewards, in-game quests, story mode, special events, or purchased in-game with real money. They were given as gifts for character birthdays, after in-game maintenance or updates, or when a new episode of the anime was premiering.
  • Taiyaki: Used to replenish a player's stamina meter.
  • Gummies: Used to level up characters and increase the rank of cards and gadgets.
  • Gadgets: Used to boost a character's stats.
  • Tickets: Used on banners to exchange for one free character summon.
  • Silver Coins: Used exclusively on a default 4-star banner in place of Hero Souls.
  • Timed Event Points: Special currency used to purchase items from limited-time events. The currency used matches the theme of the event.


On July 14, 2018, the game was announced to be receiving a major in-game update. Smash Tap would be replaced with a new game that would eventually be known as Smash Rising. The update went live on October 15, 11:00 AM JST, and lasted until October 18, 2:00 PM JST.


Smash Tap's roster features 42 characters, most of them consisting of Heroes. Due to the extensive amounts of variants that characters receive, the game has 181 playable units. These variants mainly highlight various events in the series relating to the characters, though some are created to tie in with other material, such as real-word holidays or spread artwork originating from the manga.
