Shota Aizawa vs. Villains is a battle fought between Pro Hero Eraser Head and various unnamed criminals associated with the League of Villains.


Just prior to the beginning of Class 1-A's rescue training, the League of Villains warps into the U.S.J.'s central plaza. Shota is the first person to notice their arrival. He informs his students that imminent threat from villains is very real and asks Thirteen to protect them.[1]

Denki is unable to contact the main campus because one of the villains is jamming the alarms and communications. Shota prepares to take on the villains alone, but Izuku questions his ability to do so. Izuku states that Shota's Quirk works best in stealth and one on one fights. Shota replies that Pro-Heroes must be versatile and leaves the students' safety to Thirteen.[2]


Shota leaps down the main set of stairs towards the central plaza. The League of Villains’ firing squad takes aim at the pro and he quickly erases their Quirks. Shota wraps the three criminals in his scarf and lifts them up to crash them into one another.

Eraser Head displays his superior combat skills.

Another criminal recognizes Shota to be the Erasure Hero: Eraser Head and explains to his allies that Shota can erase people's Quirks by looking at them. One villain with a mutant type Quirk surmises that this power likely has no effect on mutant users and charges at Eraser Head. Shota confirms that this, but defeats the villain by elbowing him in the face before sending him flying with his capture weapon.

Tomura Shigaraki watches close by as Shota continues to dominate his opponents in battle and takes note that Shota's Quirk makes it difficult for the villains to work together. Kurogiri eventually manages to slip by Shota and approaches the students, although Shota tries to chase him but is cut off by the mob of villains.[2]


Eraser Head eventually manages to knock out the majority of the villains, but at the cost of most of his energy. Tomura capitalizes on Shota's exhaustion and attacks.[3]
