The Villain Factory ( (ヴィラン) 製造工場 (ファクトリー) Viran Fakutorī?) is a group of villains from the spin-off series My Hero Academia: Vigilantes. The group is responsible for the creation of the Instant and Next-Level Villains.[1]


The "Villain Factory" is the name given by the Police Force to refer to the criminal organization known, particularly in the Naruhata area, for its Quirk-based experiments. The ones behind the organization are All For One and Kyudai Garaki, with their main objective being the pinnacle of their experiments that will eventually lead to the creation of a being that can rival All Might in power.[2][3] In order to achieve this main goal, they do not hesitate to resort to all types of unethical methods, like human experimentation, terrorism, and a laundry list of other crimes and wrongs.

The Villain Factory imports large quantities of illegal substances, among which the Trigger stands out, a drug that gives a boost to an individual's Quirk, simultaneously weakening their sense of reason. All For One and the Doctor contact and supply their agents with Trigger, who in turn distribute the drug through the streets for free, causing numerous incidents when drug users transform into Instant Villains, all for research purposes towards his goal.

If they consider that one of these Instant Villains has potential, they kidnap them and subject them to all kinds of bioengineering experiments and modifications, transforming them into a Next-Level Villain, who is released in the city to cause problems, all with the aim of collecting even more data and information for the main goal.

Detective Eizo Tanuma was able to come to the conclusion that All For One is involved after investigating the similarities between the Villain Factory's incidents and All For One's Underground Masquerade.[4]


The Villain Factory is an incredibly dangerous and mysterious organization, with the authorities knowing very little about them and the general public being unaware they even exist. They have accomplished this with very few active agents.

Thanks to Kuin Hachisuka's Queen Bee Quirk, the Villain Factory are able to incite chaos whenever and wherever they wish by having her bees inject ordinary civilians with Trigger, turning them into powerful Instant Villains. The Villain Factory's own creation, known as Number 6, possesses skill far greater than the former acclaimed Pro Hero O'Clock - being able to land ten blows in an instant, while O'Clock could only manage four, he is also even more dangerous than Kuin was.[5]

The Villain Factory are capable of bio-engineering, being able to modify people into dangerous Next-Level Villains, one such modified person - Octoid - was able to nearly kill the Pro Hero Eraser Head, and hold off him as well as the Trigger enhanced Hotta Brothers, the bio-engineered Kirihito Kamachi and the Vigilante known as The Crawler all at once.

They also possess an army of mindless drones known as the Bombers, remotely controlled by Number 6, made up of "Bomber cells" that allow them to detonate into massive explosions, as well as also able to be modified to utilize multiple Quirks. They later create a more humanoid-looking second batch of Bombers known as the Anonymous, which contain a hive-minded connection to Number 6.
