I'm not weeping and moping around anymore. Because you matter to me. You're my friend, and when we're scared, we tremble together. When times are tough, we cry together. So, if you're dead set on being some comic book superhero... then Class A... won't let you live that fantasy alone.
Tsuyu Asui to Izuku Midoriya in "Deku vs. Class A"

Tsuyu Asui ( () (すい) 梅雨 (つゆ) Asui Tsuyu?), also known as the Rainy Season Hero: Froppy (梅雨入りヒーローフロッピー Tsuyuiri Hīrō Furoppī?), is a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.


Tsuyu is a short girl of a relatively slender build and has notably large hands. Her appearance is rather frog-like; she has a wide mouth, which dips down a little in the middle just like a common frog, and oval-shaped eyes with large, black irises, their lower eyelashes visibly pronounced. Amongst her family, Tsuyu's frog-like traits are the least pronounced. She also demonstrates some frog-like mannerisms, such as hopping on all fours instead of running and holding herself in a way that is somewhat connotative of a frog.

Her hair is a dark sea-green color and is very long, reaching to her waist with the ends tied together at the bottom in a large bow of hair. She has two shoulder-length clumps framing her face and shorter bangs between her eyes, some partially swept to each side.

During her time in Salty Banks Middle School, she wore a plain white long sleeved seifuku with a dark blue Kansai collar, cuffs, and skirt, a double white trim on the cuffs and Kansai collar, paired with a red mixed with blue and white scarf that is tied below, and sporting black knee high socks and brown outdoor school shoes. She also wears a cyan collared scarf with dark green polka dots.

Her hero costume consists of a bright green turtleneck bodysuit, tan-colored gloves with large green buckles on each wrist guard, and two matching belts, one above her breasts, a strap at either side going around her shoulders, and one around her waist, little holes embedded into it all the way around. Two black lines run down her suit, each framed with a yellow outline, and she wears tight black boots with yellow markings in the shape of a "V" on her thighs and green webbed flippers resembling frogs' toes on her feet. She wears a headband with a color matching that of her gloves and goggles with dark green-tinted lenses attached on either side and a thin dark green mask that goes along the middle of her face.

Her winter costume isn't significantly different, though she now wears a ring around her neck with two yellow bubble-shaped objects just above her shoulders that automatically regulate her body temperature (her Quirk causes her to hibernate when it drops a significant amount), although later has them removed during the Final War along with her mask. Her goggles are newly fitted with a visor so she can wear them more comfortably. The inside of her suit is lined with insulation to aid with temperature regulation. The markings on her bodysuit are also slightly different in that the two lines only start just below her chest rather than from the top of her suit, and she has two rounder markings on her chest.



Tsuyu is straightforward and aloof, speaking bluntly from her mind and freely expressing what she thinks about others. Tsuyu prefers to be called "Tsu", but only by people she views as friends.[2] She commonly refers to everyone with the honorific "-chan", save for teachers and other authority figures.

Tsuyu holds Ochaco hand

Tsuyu calming down a scared Ochaco.

Tsuyu's parents were always busy at work, requiring her to become the caretaker of her two younger siblings at a young age. Under these circumstances, Tsuyu grew into a highly mature and responsible individual who could divide her attention between school and home duties without letting one intervene with the other. This balance also means that Tsuyu knows how to lead and look after people, keeping them safe and at ease if they don't feel so. She has strong morals, goals, and principles and is willing to oppose her friends to defend them from rash decisions. When several members of Class 1-A agreed to rescue Katsuki Bakugo after the Vanguard Action Squad Invasion, Tsuyu was the most outspoken against it, asserting that acting on their emotions and breaking the law to rescue him made them essentially the same as Villains.[3]

Tsuyu worries about All Might

Tsuyu showing a rare moment of emotional vulnerability.

Tsuyu is noticeably calm and collected, staying levelheaded and focused even during the most stressful situations. An honor student since middle school, Tsuyu has excellent judgment, can communicate her intentions easily, and is rarely moved by emotion, making her an incredibly dependable ally capable of covering for a partner's weaknesses. For those reasons, Recovery Girl describes her as a "perfect pillar of emotional support".[4] However, even Tsuyu has limits when it comes to staying composed, having broken down in despair or heartbreak a few times. Her words may also come off as unintentionally harsh, thanks to her blunt honesty, resulting in her feeling guilty and regretful when she speaks out against her friends. Following Katsuki's rescue, Tsuyu felt severely ashamed over her choice of words regarding her classmates wanting to save him, to the point where she couldn't face them out of guilt afterwards, until the situation was resolved with help from Ochaco Uraraka.

Tsuyu Going Hmm

Tsuyu's finger stim.

Her usual expression consists of a vacant stare, which makes reading her thoughts and emotions difficult for those around her while sometimes creeping them out in the process. Tsuyu habitually tips her finger against her mouth while speaking, pondering, or showing curiosity. She tends to say "ribbit", emulating a frog's croaking, at the end of her sentences or as a replacement for many of her single-word replies.

During the Final War, Tsuyu has matured somewhat with her beliefs, becoming less rigid as a result. She admitted to Himiko Toga that she initially thought following the rules made someone a hero and that breaking them made them a villain. Even so, she pleads with Himiko to let Ochaco talk with her, signifying that despite it being much more challenging than simply capturing or killing her, Ochaco is putting the rules to one side to try and reach out to her.[5]


Overall Abilities: Tsuyu has proven herself to be a highly capable individual. Using the frog-based abilities granted by her Quirk, Tsuyu has proficiency in close and long-range combat. She employs a fighting style that involves a great amount of agility and powerful leaps to evade, surprise, and confuse her opponents, as well as using her increased leg strength to deliver powerful kicks. Tsuyu can also use her elongated tongue in a grappling or whip-like fashion to subdue her opponents. In addition, Tsuyu excels in aquatic environments; her frog-like anatomy lets her move freely through water without losing strength or agility like most people. This proficiency makes Tsuyu pivotal in missions involving rescuing victims or clashing with opponents in underwater environments. Tsuyu also possesses great camaraderie, effectively combining her Quirk abilities with anyone with whom she is paired. Tsuyu is a very outstanding student with little to no weaknesses and can provide support to anyone, even those as powerful as Izuku Midoriya, Shoto Todoroki, Fumikage Tokoyami, and Tenya Ida. Her overall abilities make her one of the strongest female students in her class.

Tsuyu's abilities garnered the attention of Nejire Hado, the third strongest student of U.A. High School's Big 3, who recommended both Tsuyu and Ochaco to intern alongside her under the tutelage of Ryukyu, the No. 10 (formerly No. 9) Pro Hero. At the beginning of the Shie Hassaikai Raid, the Ryukyu Squad acted as the first line of defense against Rikiya Katsukame of the Eight Bullets and were able to subdue him successfully. During the first round of the Joint Training Battle, Tsuyu demonstrated the mettle to take on Jurota Shishida, one of the strongest students in Class 1-B, but couldn't keep up with the latter's enhanced prowess. Afterward, Tsuyu used her incredible leg strength to break through the scale armor of Hiryu Rin, send him flying into Jurota (who was being subdued by Hitoshi Shinso), and secure victory for her team. In the Final War, due to past experiences, Tsuyu was personally selected alongside Ochaco to confront and subdue Himiko Toga.

  • Enhanced Stamina: Tsuyu obtained impressive stamina through intense training. After having her stamina siphoned by a Trigger-enhanced Rikiya, Tsuyu was still able to hold her own against the Yakuza member for 20 minutes until the Trigger drug wore off, allowing the Ryukyu Squad to defeat him once and for all.

Keen Intellect: Tsuyu has proven very intelligent, scoring 6th place in the mid-terms, showcasing her academic proficiency.[6] She is also very analytical, as demonstrated in the U.S.J. Incident, in which she not only deduced the Quirk similarities between Izuku and All Might but also surmised the League of Villains may have an effective way to carry out their plan to kill All Might. Her speculation was later confirmed in the form of a Nomu. With her level-headedness and analytical skills, Tsuyu successfully helped Izuku and Minoru escape from the water villains surrounding the Flood Zone's trinity. For the First Term Final Exam, Tsuyu and Fumikage were about to fail against Ectoplasm, but Tsuyu, avoiding the instructor's attention, had Fumikage use Dark Shadow to close the gap between him and the replicating hero, to discreetly handcuff the latter, enabling the students to pass the exam. During the first round of the Joint Training Battle, Tsuyu took advantage of Jurota's enhanced sense of smell by coating her remaining teammates, Denki and Hitoshi, in mucus so that their scents would match her own, making the trio indiscernible to Jurota.



Tsuyu's Quirk in action.

Frog ( (かえる) Kaeru?): Tsuyu's Quirk gives her a frog's physiology and allows her to do anything a frog can, giving her abilities such as:

  • Enhanced swimming abilities.
  • Hopping at long distances.
  • Extending her tongue up to a maximum of 20 meters (63 feet) (which is strong enough to lift an entire person's body weight).
  • Sticking to walls.
  • Ejecting/washing her stomach.
  • Camouflaging herself.
  • Secreting mucous with different, controlled effects:
    • Itch inducing
    • Scent masking
    • Paralysis

Since she is frog-like, when she is exposed to cold temperatures for too long, she goes into hibernation and is unable to function.

As part of her training, Tsuyu worked out all the muscles in her body, including her tongue, by rock climbing on the side of a cliff while having her elongated tongue remain in place at the top of the structure.

Ultimate Moves[]

  • Camouflage ( () () (しょく) Hogoshoku?): Tsuyu uses her frog-like body to match the temperature and color of her surroundings in order to mask her presence.
  • Meteor Fafrotskies (メテオファフロッキーズ Meteo Fafurokkīzu?): Tsuyu and Ochaco work together to float debris and throw it at the enemies.
  • Froppy Hopper (フロッピーホッパー Furoppīhoppā?): Tsuyu uses her frog-like body to hop to extreme heights.[7]

Camouflage Costume: Tsuyu's hero costume changes colors along with her, blending in with her surroundings when she uses her Camouflage ability.

Froggy Neck Ring: The neck ring attaches to the back of her wet-suit and wraps around her neck. Both ends of the ring have two yellow muffs, modeled after a frog's inflated cheeks, that wrap around Tsuyu's neck. The ring automatically regulates her body temperature.

Tsuyu Prototype Design

Tsuyu Asui's preliminary design.

  • Tsuyu's preliminary design was less frog-like and more human in appearance, with smaller eyes and mouth. She was also supposed to be more downbeat.
  • According to Tsuyu's Volume 2 profile:
    • Her favorite thing is the rainy season.
    • Her favorite food is jelly.
    • Tsuyu was originally conceived as a male character, but was turned into a female because Class 1-A lacked girls at the time. She shares this aspect with Toru Hagakure.
  • Tsuyu's surname contains the kanji for "frog" ( a?) and "puff" ( sui?), and her first name contains "plum" ( tsu?) and "rain" ( yu?).
    • When written together, the kanji in Tsuyu's first name translates to "rainy season" (梅雨 tsuyu?).
  • Tsuyu's known U.A. data is as follows:
  • Tsuyu's rankings in the Popularity Polls are as follows:
    • Tsuyu ranked 6th in the First Popularity Poll.
    • Tsuyu ranked 9th in the Second Popularity Poll.
    • Tsuyu ranked 23rd in the Third Popularity Poll
    • Tsuyu ranked 20th in the Fourth Popularity Poll
    • Tsuyu ranked 16th in the Fifth Popularity Poll
    • Tsuyu ranked 21st in the Sixth Popularity Poll.
    • Tsuyu ranked 22nd in the Seventh Popularity Poll.
    • Tsuyu ranked 2nd in the First US Popularity Poll.
    • Tsuyu ranked 5th in the in the Second US Popularity Poll.
    • Tsuyu ranked 8th in the Fourth US Popularity Poll.
  • A mugshot of Chika Amatori from the World Trigger manga bears a striking resemblance to Tsuyu.[8]
    • Additionally, Tsuyu's birthday is a day after Chika's (February 11), both have the kanji for "rain" ( ama/yu?) in their names, and both seem to be related to frogs (in World Trigger's system, Chika's zodiac sign is Rana, the frog).
  • With her birthday taking place in February, Tsuyu is the second youngest student in Class 1-A, as everyone was 15 when they started U.A.'s school year in early April.
  • After moving into Heights Alliance, Tsuyu still maintains contact with her younger siblings through video chats.[7]
  • Tsuyu, Momo Yaoyorozu, Minoru Mineta, and Mina Ashido all share the same Costume designer.[9]
  • Tsuyu shares her Japanese and English voice actresses with other characters.
  • Reminiscent of Tsuyu's frog-like persona, both the Japanese and English voice actors represent this by using a nasally voice.
    • Tsuyu often adds "Kero" or "Ribbit" when speaking; both in the Japanese and English versions, respectively.
  • Describing her Quirk, Tsuyu states that she is able to spit up her stomach to clean it. Frogs, when doing this, often step on the stomach in order to clean it before it is set back into their body.


  • (To Himiko Toga, regarding being called by her first name) "Cut it out! Only people who are my friends can call me that!"[10]
  • (To her classmates, regarding the rescue mission for Katsuki Bakugo) "We're all still in shock over Bakugo's kidnapping... so we have to think about this calmly. It doesn't matter how righteous our feelings are. If we start another fight...if we break the law...then we're no better than the villains!"[11]
