You're not wrong about me... I took the long way around... and was full of doubt all the while... A half-baked dummy. That's me. Here I thought you were only focusing on dad! But no - you were nice enough to take a close look at me too. Glad to know it.
Shoto Todoroki to Dabi in "Two Flashfires"

Shoto Todoroki ( (とどろき) (しょう) () Todoroki Shōto?), also known as Shoto (ショート Shōto?), is the tritagonist of My Hero Academia.

He is a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, where he got in through official recommendations[3] and is training to become a Pro Hero. He is the youngest son of Endeavor, the former No. 2, and current No. 1, Pro Hero.

Appearance[]

Shoto is a moderately tall and rather muscular young man who is well-built for his age, stemming from his intense training as a child. He has short hair that doesn't pass his neck, and wears bangs, parted twice to avoid obscuring his vision.

His hair is evenly split between white on his right side and crimson red on his left, this unusual coloring being due to his Quirk. As another result, he also possesses heterochromia iridum, which causes his left eye's iris to appear turquoise, while his right is a brownish dark gray.

His eyes, in shape, are quite thin and reserved. Additionally, he has a large burn scar on the left side of his face, which reaches from his hairline to halfway down his cheek. He usually has a serious expression. Despite this, however, several of the girls in his class have claimed that he is handsome and Mina Ashido even goes as far as to say that he's the best-looking guy in Class 1-A.[4]

He wears the regular male U.A. uniform during school hours, replacing the usual brown dress shoe with casual pale cyan and gray lace-up sneakers.

In his initial hero costume, he wears a plain off-white shirt with matching pants and boots, with two gold-colored straps going over his shoulders, which attach to a similar colored tactical vest, which function as a heater. He has what appears to be a material resembling ice covering his whole left side, even his head with the eye socket glowing red, although it is detachable, which he wears to reject the fire aspect of his Quirk.

His updated hero costume consists of a dark blue heat-resistant jacket with elbow-length sleeves, its collar high, with a cooling/heating device within it and joined in the center by a gray neckpiece. His baggy pants of the same color as his jacket, a metal-plated tactical vest which now functions as both a heater and radiator and white boots similar to his initial costume, with the soles equipped with spikes and a thin line running down the center of each of them a darker pale gray. He also sports a brown utility belt around his waist, which can hold four little metal capsules containing medical supplies hanging off the front.

Later, in the Provisional Hero License Exam Arc, his costume gains two burgundy wrist guards with metal plating, which help regulate his body temperature after his attacks, and his boots now have a set of straps.

For Mission: Humarise, Shoto and his internees at the Endeavor Agency are given special advanced stealth costumes by the World Heroes Association for their mission to Otheon. Shoto designs his stealth costume to resemble the third variant with the entire suit made of a neoprene black jacket and slim black pants with built-in knee-pads, metal plates to regulate his body temperature and longer sleeves. He also sports a black utility belt around his waist with silver ironings, as well as two silver plates on his shoulders, with the letters "WHA" on it.

Sometime during Spring Break, Shoto further upgrades his costume, which has some visual similarities to his father's second costume. His wrist guards now feature armor-like bracing and are accompanied by plating from his wrist to his knuckles, and can stores up heat and cold to help condense his power. His jacket, now a darker shade of blue and more heat resisted, features a large gray-blue T-shaped stripe going from his waist to his armpits, and his utility belt can now hold 8 capsules, with two contained in two larger canisters strapped to his sides. This costume is referred to as "Costume Gamma."

Personality[]

Shoto's original cold demeanor

Shoto's original coldness.

Shoto originally had a cold, aloof personality, which stemmed from his abusive upbringing and complicated family life. Focused and unemotional, Shoto preferred to keep to himself instead of hanging out with others. After the events of the U.A. Sports Festival, however, Shoto notably became more sociable and kind, even gaining a sense of humor and occasionally smiling, although still retaining some fragments of his previous distant attitude. After the Provisional Hero License Course, he began opening up more to his classmates and has lightened up from his usually serious demeanor. Nonetheless, Shoto is not quite used to socializing yet, coming off as a bit dense when understanding certain phrases and figures of speech.

While usually quiet and reserved, Shoto initially possessed a moderate level of arrogance, which, combined with his solitary tendencies, sometimes made him take the initiative without considering the opinions of others, displaying confidence that he could take on any obstacles with his own strength. He used to be much more unfriendly as well, evidenced by when his cold attitude caused Inasa Yoarashi to resent him while he was none the wiser. Even in the present, Shoto seems to prefer acting alone, although only for practical purposes since doing so allows him to unleash his full power without worrying about friendly fire. Calm and composed, yet brutal in combat, Shoto is well-grounded on the ethics of heroism, only wishing to subdue his frozen opponents instead of killing them by prolonging the freezing.

Shoto angry

Shoto infuriated with Endeavor.

Shoto had a deep loathing for his fire abilities, which he inherited from Endeavor, as it symbolized his father's wickedness towards him and his mother as well as what he was born to be: a tool to surpass All Might, a fate that he detested. As such, Shoto decided to rely solely on his freezing power and never use the other half of his Quirk in battles (save only for melting his ice), going so far as to cover his left torso and arm with ice in his first Hero Costume to symbolize his rebellion against his father. Shoto often felt bothered by Endeavor's mere presence, and could barely contain his anger while talking to him, especially whenever the Pro Hero brought up the purpose he had intended for his son since before birth. Ironically though, Shoto's animosity towards his father made him more like how Endeavor was, being apathetic and indifferent towards others while obsessively focusing on his own goal of rejecting his father. Upon first meeting him, Inasa noticed that Shoto had the same hate-filled glare that Endeavor had due to his hatred driving him while simultaneously holding him back from his full potential.

Episode 23

Shoto forgets his resentment after listening to Izuku's words.

During his match with Izuku Midoriya in the U.A. Sports Festival, Izuku's speech made the memory of his mother's supportive words resurface, and for the first time since his childhood, Shoto used his firepower in combat. After the battle, Shoto had mixed feelings about using his left side, but after reconciling with his mother, Shoto eventually came to terms with the half he once hated and became willing to train it further, now realizing that it is his Quirk and not his father's. Despite being scarred by her as a young child, Shoto shows no hate or disliking towards his mother, visiting her often ever since the end of the Sports Festival. Shoto draws his heroic values from All Might, a trait he shares with Izuku and Katsuki Bakugo, having fond memories of watching the Symbol of Peace on television with Rei.

Despite his difficult past, Shoto doesn't allow his hatred of Endeavor to completely cloud his judgement and still acknowledges him for his skills and capabilities as one of Japan's top Heroes. He chose to intern at his father's agency during the Hero Agency Internships and later the Hero Work-Studies program, although he made it clear that this was purely for his own benefit and learning experience rather than any desire to spend time with him. Shoto is quite reflective of his own growth, realizing how much Izuku's words had changed his perspective and how better he became. Due to this, Shoto was not against his father deciding that he would try and make amends with his family and become a better person, knowing from experience that a single thing can change a person if they allow it to.

However, Shoto's grudge towards Endeavor has not yet disappeared, even if he respects his father's ability as a Hero, self-admitting that such resentment can't vanish so easily and that he was wrong in trying to bury it. Having been denied a normal childhood so that his father could train him to realize his own selfish ambitions, Shoto still holds various psychological scars, which tend to reemerge when others compare him to Endeavor. Because of this and Izuku's influence, Shoto now strives to become a Hero, but without walking the same path his father did.

Shoto remains relatively cold towards Endeavor and has made it clear that forgiveness for his past treatment of him and his mother is difficult, but has also demonstrated worry about his father's safety. Ever since Endeavor tried to repair his relationship with his family, Shoto has taken a cautious, yet hopeful approach to this development.[5] Unlike his brother Natsuo, Shoto does not seem against the possibility of forgiving his father; however, he has made it clear to Endeavor that he must earn it. While ruminating over the matter, Izuku believes that Shoto is preparing to forgive his father and is waiting for the right time to do so.[6]

Abilities[]

Shoto freezes villains

Shoto effortlessly defeating villains at the U.S.J..

Overall Abilities: Having been trained by his father, Endeavor, at a young age, Shoto entered U.A. High School through recommendations and has been established as one of the most powerful students in Class 1-A. He earned 2nd place in both the Quirk Apprehension Test and U.A. Sports Festival. Shoto also has a great handle over his versatile and powerful Quirk, Half-Cold Half-Hot, which grants him incredible dual-element capabilities. Using the right side of his body, Shoto can drastically lower temperatures and freeze anything he touches, and generate ice that he can freely mold into numerous constructs that include ice waves to cover large areas and ice barriers for defense.[3][7][8][9] Shoto also employs his cryokinetic abilities for mobility purposes, such as stacking ice shards behind his back to propel himself forward, glaciating the ground to skate on it, or his signature move, creating trails of ice on which he can surf.[10][11][12] From the left side of his body, Shoto can eloquently increase thermokinetics and release scorching hot flames in the form of consuming streams or protective waves.[13] Overall, Shoto has tremendous power, but because of past decisions and circumstances, such as his intentional neglect of one half of his Quirk, he has yet to reach his full potential.

Shoto freezes Chimera

With help from his friends, Shoto defeats the fully powered Chimera.

At the U.S.J., Shoto could overpower small-time villains at the Landslide Zone by himself and later showcased elite judgment, combat awareness, and athletic ability during the U.A. Sports Festival.[14] At the festival, Shoto was able to neutralize a Villain Bot-Executor, defeat his swift classmates, Hanta Sero and Tenya Ida, as well as fight on par with Izuku Midoriya for a prolonged period to a nigh-draw. In his battle against Izuku, a fan claimed that Shoto was already stronger than the average Pro Hero. When he was pitted against Katsuki Bakugo in the final round of the Sports Festival, there was a chance Shoto could've won the match using his fire powers. Still, due to inner turmoil, he extinguished his inferno, leaving him open to Katsuki's "Howitzer Impact" and losing the match. Starting with the Hosu Incident, Shoto began the full embracement of his left side, as well as his pyro-cryogenic interchangeability, particularly when he, Izuku, and Tenya faced off against the Hero Killer: Stain. Following his run-in with the Hero Killer, Shoto is recognized as one of strongest students of Class 1-A, as noted by Pixie-Bob.[15]

While Shoto may possess full supremacy over his cryokinesis, the control over his pyrokinesis could have been more effective, especially in comparison to that of Endeavor. However, after the third match of the Joint Training Battle, Shoto realized that he had disregarded his left side for too long, which had put him and his team in a disadvantage and resolved to achieve greater mastery over his pyrokinetic abilities by learning the fundamentals of "Flashfire Fist", Endeavor's signature technique. Thanks to his second internship, Shoto's handling over his left side has improved significantly, as he can now use his pyrokinesis in a new variety of ways, such as boosting his movement speed, launching himself through the air, and attacking with blaze-powered punches. And though Shoto is powerful, contending with individuals such as Stain, Eraser Head, Wolfram, Moonfish, Mr. Compress, Gang Orca, Chimera, Ending, and Tomura Shigaraki require Shoto's effective camaraderie with multiple people to prevail against such formidable opponents, excluding Leviathan. That was hardly the case during the climax of the Paranormal Liberation War, wherein he faced his brother Dabi in a battle of flames that nearly resulted in Shoto being burned alive, had it not been for Izuku's brief intervention. As the body-charring Todoroki brothers resumed their full-power pyrokinetic clash, Shoto lost, but Dabi chose to spare his brother, as killing him without Endeavor watching would be pointless.

Shoto defeats Dabi

Shoto overpowers and defeats Dabi, his seemingly stronger brother.

During Class A's mission to bring Izuku back to U.A., after he left following the war events, Shoto displayed an even greater mastery over his cryokinetic abilities. In particular, his control over the shape of his ice has become much more refined, forming a massive vertical pillar of ice with Heaven-Piercing Ice Wall, and even creating a smooth curved ramp without the need for a solid framework. Furthermore, he's shown the ability to use his signature move, "Flashfreeze Heatwave", without needing to cool the air down first; now he can put his hands together and unleash the power of both sides at once to create the same effect.

Due to his training with the Pussycats, Shoto has gained increased efficiency over his Half-Cold Half-Hot Quirk, allowing him to fight on equal terms with Dabi come the Final War. Despite Dabi's Blueflame Quirk being thermally superior (burning at temperatures exceeding 3000°F), Shoto's newly acquired cold flames can compensate for his brother's flames, giving him two Quirks worth of power strong enough to freeze Kamino and overpower Dabi, besting his older brother (albeit with assistance from the flaming sidekickers), with minimal injuries. However, Shoto was caught off-guard by Dabi's Awakening-like power enhancement, which allowed him to copy Shoto's Phosphor technique before getting warped away to face Endeavor. Later on, with the aid of Tenya, Shoto was able to arrive at Gunga Mountain Villa and assist his family in routing Dabi's pending self-destruction by unleashing a stronger version of "Great Glacial Aegir" to defeat his eldest brother once and for all.

  • Enhanced Durability: Shoto has proven himself to be quite resilient, being able to withstand multiple attacks from Izuku, including a direct, One For All-enhanced punch at 5% strength to the stomach, without sustaining major injuries.[16] During his fight with Leviathan, Shoto was able to withstand his punch, which was strong enough to destroy the floor of the Humarise headquarters. One of the most impressive examples of Shoto's resilience, was when he endured the superior pyrokinesis of Dabi. However, Shoto was shielded by his own pyrokinesis, and Dabi intentionally held back in his final attack that left Shoto alive.
  • Enhanced Stamina: Shoto has shown to endure combat even while injured. For example, in his battle with Stain, he was able to continue fighting and supporting his allies despite suffering from multiple bleeding injuries on his arm and face,[13] and was still able to drag the villain's unconscious body once the battle is over.[17] When he engaged Dabi in a pyrokinetic brawl, Shoto continued to fight on despite his body becoming charred.
  • Enhanced Agility: Shoto is fast, agile, and has quick reflexes. He was able to keep first place during most of the Obstacle Race during the Sports Festival thanks to his athletic ability. He repeatedly created ice walls within a split second to prevent himself from getting thrown out of the ring through his matchups with Izuku and Katsuki.[18] He was the only one in Class 1-A capable of at least partly reacting to and dodging Tenya's Recipro Burst. He could also partially dodge a knife thrown at his face and several other attacks by Stain, a notably swift opponent.[13]

Keen Intellect: Shoto has proven to be a very intelligent person. And despite his training, Shoto is also very skilled in academics, having scored 5th place in the midterms.[19] During the U.S.J. Incident, Shoto accurately extrapolated that the invading villains had a Quirk user amongst their ranks that could jam communications. At the same time, he realized the attacking villains had an agenda and interrogated some of them to get answers.[20] Shoto's theory was proven correct, as the villain's goal was to kill All Might. Shoto also deduced Izuku had a connection to All Might after observing Izuku's power and matching it to that of All Might when the latter was fighting Nomu. Though on point about Izuku's link to the Symbol of Peace, Shoto incorrectly believed Izuku might be All Might's secret love child.[21] Shortly before the Hosu Incident, Shoto noticed the look of anger in Tenya's eyes and easily surmised that he was only taking up an internship in Hosu City to seek vengeance on the Hero Killer: Stain. While on patrol in Hosu, Shoto was able to work out the location of Izuku, Tenya, and Stain from an emergency call and arrive in time; however, he did complain it took a while, as Izuku didn't relay more than the exact location.[22]

When he and Momo Yaoyorozu were paired together to face Eraser Head for their First Term Final Exam, Shoto suggested that Momo continuously creates random objects until she was unable to do so, which would signify that the Eraser Hero is nearby, all in attempt to lure him out and act as a diversion so Momo can make her way to the escape gate. Shoto's strategy worked, but as explained by Eraser Head, it was too offensive-oriented, as Shoto had placed the burden on himself and needed to trust Momo more. After being scolded by his teacher and approached by his returning classmate, Shoto admitted to being aware of Momo having a plan from the start of their matchup and not inquiring about it before properly cooperating with her. Observing the second match of the Joint Training Battle involving the teams of Momo and Itsuka Kendo, Shoto noticed a flaw in Itsuka's precautionary modus operandi in separating Momo from her Class 1-A teammates. He elucidated that if she wanted to be cautious of Momo, then Itsuka would've had her entire team overwhelm the Everything Hero at the beginning of the match.[23] After witnessing Izuku's awakening of a second Quirk, Shoto speculated that the One For All inheritor may be like him, having multiple powers in one singular ability, but Shoto didn't yet recognize the true depth of Izuku's new power.[24]

Shoto releases his fire

Having regained his lost conviction, Shoto finally uses his flames.

Indomitable Will: Shoto has a highly undaunted spirit, not easily giving in to intimidation that would disrupt his focus, maintaining a cool head, and pushing through adversity. Initially, Shoto was jaded and aloof due to the abuse he and his family received from Endeavor's previous callousness, resulting in Shoto refusing to use his left side in battles as a sign of rejecting his father. Once the U.A. Sports Festival was underway, Shoto was considerably hellbent on not using his fire powers. Still, this misguided determination was corrected when he faced Izuku, who vehemently expressed that those powers belong to Shoto, nobody else. This encouragement triggered a latent memory within Shoto's psyche, as he recalled how his mother, Rei Todoroki, and All Might said those exact words that inspired Shoto to be a hero who can put people at ease with a smile, just like All Might himself. Remembering both these passionate words and his resolve, Shoto was free from the turmoil that stirred inside of him, finally used the power housed within his left side, and expressed how he, like Izuku, will be a hero and was grateful to Izuku for saving him from the emotional shackles that were weighing him down.

Shoto Todoroki unleashes the full power of his flames

Recalling Izuku’s words of encouragement and Endeavor's advice, Shoto pushes past his limits and unleashes the full might of his flames.

Unfortunately, despite willingly using the power of his left side, Shoto still had some level of uncertainty afterward. While battling Katsuki, as Eraser Head explained, Shoto lost his spark following his previous match with Izuku, causing him not to give 100% of his strength. As Shoto became paralyzed with doubt, Izuku cheered him on, encouraging him to do his best, once again reigniting Shoto's will to fight and use his ignikinesis. Yet at the last second, before clashing with Katsuki, Shoto's inner turmoil was too prevalent, causing him to extinguish his conflagration and, in turn, lose the battle against Katsuki. Following the Sports Festival, Shoto has fortified his drive, becoming more than willing to use his pyrokinetic abilities in battle and even having the courage to finally face his mother, Rei, who previously, albeit in a mentally unstable state, gave Shoto the scar over his left eye.

When the Provisional License Exam occurred, Shoto's will was tested again when he had a major altercation with Inasa Yoarashi, having coldly rebuffing the aerokinetic warm personality when the two met at the U.A. Recommendation Entrance Exam for recommended students. Shoto realized that he still hadn't moved past Endeavor's maltreatment, and his horrid attitude led to Inasa developing his hateful disposition towards Shoto himself. The infighting between the two elemental users resulted in them being repeatedly unable to land an attack on Gang Orca and were left at the mercy of him and his sidekicks. Soon after, however, Izuku arrived on the scene and scolded Shoto and Inasa for their actions, making the weakened students realize their mistake of being uncooperative with one another. The pair reaffirmed their convictions, put their differences aside, and finally worked together despite being incapacitated. Unfortunately, their conflict cost them the licensing exam, and they had to take remedial courses to make up for their imprudence and failure. Having undergone self-reflection, Shoto and Inasa displayed fully mutual congeniality towards each other when they crossed paths again at the Remedial Exam.

During the third match of the Joint Training Battle, Shoto was pressured by Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu but could recall Endeavor's counsel on bringing his inferno to the limit and then surpassing that very apex. This advice proved pivotal, as Shoto, also recollecting Izuku's words of encouragement, understood that if he wants to become the hero he desires to be, he has to go beyond what his body and Quirk can do. His will sparked again; Shoto brought his pyrokinesis to the limit, equaling the potency of Endeavor's own flames, and was able to hold his own against Tetsutetsu better and put the latter's metal skin at risk of melting. In the climax of the Paranormal Liberation War, Shoto's spirit took a significant blow when Dabi revealed his true identity as Toya Todoroki, Shoto's eldest sibling who was thought to have been deceased. Discovering that Toya was alive for years, became a villain, and orchestrated the recent encounters with Hood, Starservant, and Ending, Shoto was sent into a tearful rage. Despite these revelations, Shoto remained steadfast and was more than willing to engage his corrupted brother, not wavering when the Todoroki brothers clashed despite Toya's superior abilities.

Quirk[]

Half-Cold Half-Hot

Half-Cold Half-Hot.

Half-Cold Half-Hot ( (はん) (れい) (はん) (ねん) Hanrei Han'nen?): Shoto's Quirk gives him the ability to generate ice from the right side of his body, and flames from his left side.

Due to years of rejecting his father, Shoto has developed a habit of favoring ice, even when fire would be a better option. This grudge also caused him to have difficulty controlling his flames. While he is capable of using both elements simultaneously, he isn't used to doing this and still needs to practice dual wielding. While training for his ultimate move, he claimed that using both abilities at the same time slows him down.

If he overuses one element without utilizing the other, then his own body temperature will suffer; the ice half will cause frostbite and the fire half will cause heatstroke. Until his bodily limit is reached, however, neither has any visible effect on his body. Shoto can easily negate this weakness by alternating between ice and fire.

As part of his training, Shoto sat in a barrel of water and alternated between using ice and fire to regulate the temperature of the water. It helped his body become accustomed to the cold, and he learned better control over his flames.

Further development of the Quirk and mastery over his left side has allowed Shoto to combine his fire and ice into a "cold fire," making use of his circulatory system to move the hot and cold blood around his body. This gives Shoto immunity to damage from heat-based Quirks, as well as improved offensive capabilities, especially against those with such Quirks. However, this way of using his Quirk requires a certain level of concentration in order to maintain it; otherwise, it will falter and dissipate.[25]

Ultimate Moves[]

Heaven-Piercing Ice Wall

Heaven-Piercing Ice Wall.

  • Heaven-Piercing Ice Wall (穿 () (てん) (ひょう) (へき) Gaten Hyōheki?): Shoto creates an enormous ice glacier, that can either encapsulate his opponent or block the immediate field of battle in ice. This move is first used in his battle against Hanta Sero in the Sports Festival but is unnamed until the Final Exams[26]. He noted to Hanta that it was more powerful than necessary, but he was irritated (from talking with Endeavor) and overdid it. A variation of this move, slightly smaller in size, but more controllable, is shown in his battle against Katsuki.[27] He also used this attack repeatedly on a massive scale while attacking Mr. Compress.
  • Wall of Flames ( (ほのお) (かべ) Honō no Kabe?): Shoto uses his left side to generate a burst of flames that covers a large area. This is both a defensive and offensive attack like his Giant Ice Wall technique. It can be used to attack multiple opponents and create space between Shoto and his target. Shoto first used this attack against Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu during the Joint Training Battle with Class 1-B.[28]
  • Flashfreeze Heatwave ( (ぼう) (れい) (ねっ) () Bōrei Neppa?): To use this technique, Shoto first cools the air around him with his ice powers. Shoto then switches to his fire, rapidly heating and expanding the air around him. This allows him to release a superheated blast. He first uses this attack against Izuku at the climax of their match in the Sports Festival.
  • Flashfire Fist (Shoto)

    Shoto's Flashfire Fist.

    Flashfire Fist ( (かく) (しゃく) (ねっ) (けん) Kaku Shakunekken?): Endeavor's signature technique, later passed down to Shoto himself. The user increases the temperature of their flames to their maximum and compresses them to a white-hot point, maximizing their power.
    • Hell Spider (ヘルスパイダー Heru Supaidā?): Shoto concentrates his fire and emits it out of his fingertips, allowing him to cut through objects. He first uses this attack to destroy the lasers at a Humarise base.[29]
    • Jet Kindling ( (ふん) (りゅう) () (えん) Funryūshien?): Shoto concentrates his flames into a white-hot point on his fist and punches his opponent. On contact, a violent explosion of flames burst out of Shoto's arm, severely burning his target.[30] Shoto first uses this attack against Leviathan in the final battle against Humarise.[29]
    • Phosphor ( (りん) Rin?): Shoto circulates both halves of his Quirk throughout his body, merging the fire and ice into one ability. This Ultimate Move also serves as a basis for other moves Shoto uses.[31]
      • Coldflame's Pale Blade ( (れい) (えん) (はく) (じん) Reien Hakujin?): Using the combination powers of Phosphor, Shoto throws a piece of the conjoined fire and ice at his opponent, launching them a great distance backward.[25]
      • Great Glacial Aegir ( (だい) (ひょう) (かい) (しょう) Daihyō Kaishō?): Shoto builds up his fire and ice, rushes toward his opponent, hits them with his fist and unleashes a massive wave of cold fire, able to extinguish the hottest of flames, as well as cover a massive section of terrain completely in ice.[25]

Equipment[]

Hero Costume: Following his winter internship with Endeavor, Shoto has upgraded his second hero costume. Like before, his third costume is designed to optimize the use of both his fire and ice sides in combat, and diminish the drawbacks of Shoto's Quirk as much as possible by regulating his body temperature.[32] But it has been further enhanced to accommodate his increased firepower and new abilities, and includes additional first aid equipment for emergencies.

  • Temperature Resistant Jacket: Shoto's blue jacket is made from a special fire-resistant fiber. There is a special device near the neck that senses Shoto's body temperature and supports the vest to help regulate it. His third costume's jacket is made of a more heat-resistant material and is stiffer than before.
  • Combat Vest: The device on Shoto's back is capable of sensing Shoto's body temperature and automatically heats up or cools down accordingly. Shoto requested his original costume had a device that heated up.
  • Utility Belt: There are metal capsules on Shoto's belt that contain water, pain medication, and disinfectants, making up a first aid kit. His third costume adds an additional four first aid capsules which brings the total to nine; these are held in packs at both his sides.
  • Snow Boots: Shoto is outfitted with a pair of white snow boots with spikes under the soles that prevent Shoto from slipping on his own ice. They are later upgraded with straps going across the front of the boots.
  • "Surge Arm" Gauntlets: Further upgrading from his second costume, Shoto has replaced his wrist guards with gauntlets similar to those used by his father Endeavor. While his previous costume's wrist guards were made from the same material as his vest, these gauntlets are metal and are designed to hold hot and cold air within them in order to help Shoto compress his ice and fire powers better.

Trivia[]

  • Shoto's surname contains the kanji for "to roar, a roaring fire" ( todoroki?), and his first name contains "burning" ( shō?) and "freezing" ( to?).
    • "Todoroki" is a relatively common Japanese surname.
  • According to Shoto's Volume 2 profile:
    • His favorite food is Zaru (cold) Soba.
    • He may have been the first Class 1-A character conceived after Izuku, Katsuki, and Ochaco, who were planned since way before the school setting was decided.
  • Shoto's known U.A. academic data is as follows:
    • Shoto ranked 2nd in the U.A. Recommendation Entrance Exam.
    • Shoto is student No. 15 in Class 1-A.
    • Shoto ranked 5th in Class 1-A's mid-term scores.[19]
    • Shoto ranked 2nd during Shota's Quirk Apprehension Test.
    • Shoto was the Runner-Up of The U.A. Sports Festival First-Year Stage.
      • Shoto received a total of 4,123 nominations from Pro Heroes for his U.A. Sports Festival performance, making him the most nominated Class 1-A student.
    • Since he failed the Provisional Hero License Exam, he scored below 50.
  • Shoto's rankings in the Popularity Polls are as follows:
    • Shoto ranked 2nd in the first and fourth Popularity Polls.
    • Shoto ranked 3rd in the second, third, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth Popularity Polls.
  • He may be partially based on the Marvel Comics character Thermite, who can also project heat on his left side and cold on his right side, and needed a regulatory pack to manage his body temperature.
  • Since Shoto's eyes and hair show physical separation where the halves of his Quirk divide, he may have the genetic anomaly known as chimera.
  • Shoto and Izuku share the same costume designer.
    • Shoto is so far the only student to have gone through a radical change of costume, having abandoned all elements of his first one except for the boots.
    • Ironically, Shoto accepting the fire aspect of his Quirk resulted in his costume and support gear becoming more like his father's.[33]
  • As a child, Shoto is voiced by Kei Shindō, who also voices Kyoka Jiro, Fuyumi Todoroki, and Kinoko Komori.

Quotes[]

  • (To Izuku) "Never using my bastard of a father's Quirk... No.. By rising to the top without using it... I'll have denied him everything."[34]
  • (To Izuku) "I want it, too. I'll be a hero!"
  • (To his father) "I haven't put aside anything. As if I could be turned that easily. It's just... In that moment, that instant... I forgot all about you. Whether that's good, bad, or something in between... That's something I'll have to think about."[35]
  • (To Tenya) "Ever since your brother got taken down... I've had my eye on you. Because all that building resentment was written on your face. I know that when I see it. And I know just how much grudges like that... can cloud a person's vision."[36]
  • (To Tenya) "If you wanna stop this, then stand up! Because I've just got one thing to say to you! Never forget who you want to become!"[37]
  • (To Kenji Tsuragamae) "Should we have let people die, all in the name of your 'law'?! Isn't it a hero's job to save people?"[38]
  • (To Dabi) "I may be your half-baked little brother, but let me say this! Dad was a madman and our family was screwed up! But when you burned all those people to death that was your choice. You’re not taking any more innocent lives!"[39]
  • (To Himself) "Thank you! If I had to summarize all my thoughts into one phrase, all I'd say is... Thank you so much! My blood, my past. It was a lonely existence, with almost nothing to look back on or forward to. But by the time I finally understood it wasn’t the case... Everyone seemed like they were always so far ahead of me... When in reality, they were always beside me. Every member... from Class A was there for me. They always gave me a place to feel... Safe."[25]
