My Hero Academia: 10 Fan Theories About The U.A Traitor, Ranked

When it comes to My Hero Academia, fans have a lot to look forwards to. There's spectacular slam-bang action, teenage hi-jinks of the quirky UA students, and some intriguing underlying mysteries. Among all the mysteries in the show's premise, the hidden identity of the UA traitor is one that could drastically change the direction of the show's overarching premise.

That's the reason why fans can't help but wonder who this sinister traitor is. Over the years, many fans have taken it upon themselves to put together all the little pieces of the overarching puzzle and guess who this traitor could be. Unsurprisingly, many of them have come out with some very plausible theories.

10 Kaminari Denki Is The Traitor

Since there is an entire 4chan Study Board dedicated to this, it is among the most popular and believable theories surrounding the UA traitor. Denki comes off as someone who doesn't take anything seriously and even when it comes to academics, he's not all that bright.

But, in contrast to his silly demeanor, he often seems to have vivid details of events he should know nothing about—not to mention his suspicious behavior at the USJ attack adds more heft to this theory.

9 Toru Hagakure Is The Traitor

For the most part, Toru Hagakure is a secondary character who rarely influences the overarching premise of My Hero Academia. However, it's her invisibility quirk that demands suspicion.

According to this theory, it'll be easy for Toru to snoop around, find all the secrets that the heroes behold, and then plan evil deeds without being noticed by anyone. Despite being portrayed as comic relief, there are moments where Toru proves to be really powerful. For instance, she surprised everyone with her super move during the Provisional Hero License Exam.

8 Minoru Mineta Is The Traitor

Minoru Mineta is among the few students of Class 1-A whose abilities seem practically useless. Along with that, his relentless acts of perversion throughout the runtime of the series have given him a bad reputation. So, it would be fair to say that he's not a fan-favorite.

Due to this, although there isn't any concrete evidence surrounding the theory, many fans believe—or want to believe, at least—that Minoru Mineta is the UA traitor. Well, if this theory turns out to be true, many viewers will be caught off-guard as Mineta has always been hyped about being a true hero despite his abilities, or lack thereof.

7 Mezo Shoji Is The Traitor

It's Shoji's frightening appearance that initially made many fans suspicious about his true motives. However, if one solely considers his personality when he's around other UA students, almost no one is as friendly and kind as him.

A Redditor explained how his selflessness is only a facade, as he's very likely to be the UA traitor. The theory suggests that his enhanced hearing can easily allow him to eavesdrop on his teachers and fellow students to know all about their secrets. Moreover, his ambiguous backstory ranks him among the top suspects.

6 Nezu Is The Traitor

When it comes to authority, there's no one above Nezu at the UA, but many fans have been questioning his responsibility all the authority he holds. For starters, he's not human and seemingly has some serious grudges against the ones who treated him like a lab rat and conducted nefarious experiments on him.

Adding to that, Nezu is also among the most intelligent characters of the series. Due to this, many believe that he could be cleverly plotting evil acts behind-the-scenes without coming under any hero's radar.

5 No One From Class 1-B Could Be The Traitor

A fan suggested that, considering how the revelation of the UA traitor can completely change the course of the series, it seems likely that the traitor will be one of the primary characters. This theory rules out all the students of Class 1-B, as they get very limited screentime. In addition, it also eliminates other primary heroes from the suspicion window.

4 Momo Yaoyorozu Is Unknowingly The Traitor

A Redditor delved deep into Momo's background and came out with this plausible theory. According to it, the only thing that's known about Momo's family is that she comes from a very royal household. But, other than that, the identity of her parents remains to be a mystery.

So, it is possible that, unbeknownst to her, her parents are the traitors and have been funding the league of villains all this time. Not only that, but they've also been revealing UA's location to the villains by keeping a track of their daughter's whereabouts.

3 Yuga Aoyama Is The Traitor

In appearance, Yuga comes off as someone who wouldn't even dare to harm the ones around him. But, at the same time, his social awkwardness suggests that there's a lot more to him than meets the eye. Yuga has had a long history of disappearances in the face of danger every time the students of Class 1-A have confronted the villains.

While his disappearances are never acknowledged because everyone believes that he's just afraid of confrontation, these disappearances might be hinting at his involvement with the bad guys.

2 There Are Many Traitors

By now, it's pretty evident that the traitor has to be someone capable of going toe-to-toe with some of the school's best students, including Midoriya and Bakugo, so, maybe—just maybe—there's not just one traitor, but an entire group of them. As pointed out by a Redditor, the entire class 2-A or 3-B could consist of traitors, as Midoriya may not stand a chance against all their quirks combined.

1 Vlad King Is The Traitor

While most theories point fingers at the students of UA High School, there are some that stack solid evidence against staff member Vlad King. One explanation of this theory is that, during the USJ attack, none of the villains knew anything about the quirks of Class 1-A. This itself dismisses all class 1-A students as traitors because the traitor would be well-versed with the abilities of their classmates and would have mentioned it to the villains.

There are also other incidents where Vlad has shown a strange amount of interest in knowing more about the quirks of Class 1-A. Additionally, he also seemed extremely anxious when Aizawa defended Bakugo during a press conference.

More From Dhruv Sharma

My Hero Academia’s League of Villains looked to be one step ahead of the heroes for a time. The league has been able to infiltrate, ambush, and worm their way into venues and activities that U.A. High School and the pro heroes felt were safe, leading them to believe that one of U.A. High School’s students is a traitor.

The U.A. traitor plot point has been dangling in front of fans’ faces for some time, leading to various guesses and hypotheses on who the league’s informant may be, whether it’s a teacher or one of U.A.’s pupils. While there are a number of strong contenders who may be the traitor, there are also a number of people who are completely innocent which prompts the question of who the traitor actually is.

If this question captivates you as well this article will offer the 10 best fan theories on who the traitor is to give you some ideas, so keep reading.

10. Kaminari Denki

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

Denki comes out as someone who doesn’t take things seriously, and he’s not particularly brilliant when it comes to academics.

However, despite his goofy manner, he frequently seems to recall vivid details of events he should not be aware of not to mention his strange conduct during the USJ assault, which lends credence to this idea.

This is one of the most credible theories surrounding the question of the U. A. traitor. The concept that Kaminari is a traitor to U.A. is a popular one among My Hero Academia fans. 

There are many reasons fans consider evidence that supports this theory but the ones that are mentioned most often are as follows: at the USJ assault, his conduct was suspicious, he knows some extremely precise facts while being the class dunce, and his room seems like he simply put together male crap with no real understanding of what he’s doing.

Many fans of the series adore Kaminari, so if he turns out to be the traitor, they’ll feel betrayed, especially given his ties with the rest of 1-A, notably Bakugo and Jiro. 

Fans believe Kaminari is more evil and clever than he lets on, despite his bumbling demeanor. This twist would be rather dramatic. 

9. Toru Hagakure

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

Toru Hagakure is one of the less important questions which is why she isn’t considered quite as often. However, her quirk is one that ultimately made people suspect him despite being a secondary character. 

Although many don’t consider her quirk extremely useful in battel it could be the one thing about her that makes it possible for her to be the traitor.

For example, she utilizes her invisibility to refract and generate a flash of light through her body in the first part of the Provisional Hero License Exam, which easily blinds her opponents. 

This ability adds a unique twist to her talent. It implies that, in addition to invisibility, she may be able to control her molecules in such a manner that light passing through her body produces a chosen refractive index.

According to this theory, Toru would have little trouble snooping about, discovering all the secrets that the heroes possess, and then plotting wicked actions without being discovered. 

Despite his portrayal as a comedic relief character, Toru has some very poignant moments. During the Provisional Hero License Exam, for example, she stunned everyone with her super move.

Toru could easily slip away from the rest of Class 1-A to acquire and convey information to the League of Villains, given her ability to become entirely invisible at any time. She may even observe the other faculty members during their sessions without being discovered. Toru’s peculiarity would make her an ideal spy.

It’s her usual role as the funny and easygoing character in the series that makes most fans question this theory.

8. Minoru Mineta

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

Minoru Mineta is one of the rare Class 1-A students whose talents appear to be essentially meaningless. Furthermore, his constant acts of depravity during the course of the series have earned him a terrible reputation and it’s safe to assume he’s not a popular favorite.

Mineta’s special ability allows him to rip sticky purple balls from his skull and toss them at foes; if utilized correctly, the balls can incapacitate the adversary by rendering them immobile.

Mineta’s quirk, on the other hand, is only effective in very narrow conditions and isn’t as adept at hero work as quirks like One for All, Half Hot Half Cold, or Permeation.

He’s frequently portrayed as a pervy little wuss with a quirk unsuited for battle who’s simply attempting to be a hero to impress the women. At first sight, this little crybaby cannot possibly be U.A.’s traitor, unless that was the goal all along.

Given the need for the U.A. traitor to remain concealed and unobtrusive, a wimpy pervert would be a good fit. Not to add, Mineta is far intelligent than most people believe, and his peculiarity might be beneficial for infiltration.

The character is mostly bland and doesn’t play a huge role in the series which is why many fans believe that him being the traitor would be a great arch for the character.

However, despite the fact that many fans seem to be on board with this theory there isn’t a lot of evidence supporting this particular theory. 

Mineta’s fans are very split in their opinions of him; they either adore him or detest him, with no in-between. Some admirers are hoping he is the traitor in order to excuse his sleazy behavior and odd attitude. 

Mineta, on the other hand, is extremely unlikely to be the traitor or anything more than the odd comedic relief of class 1-A. Plus, Mineta is unlikely to betray all of his crushes in class in that manner.

After all, the one thing that stands out about this character is his, sometimes quite creepy, car for his friends and the strive to become a hero.

Aside from this he is quite consistently portraited as a true hero despite his underwhelming quirk and the fact that he doesn’t play an important role in the series.

7. Mezo Shoji

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

Many fans were originally dubious of Shoji’s actual motivations due to his scary appearance. When it comes to his demeanor with other UA students, though, virtually no one compares to him in terms of friendliness and kindness.

Mezo is a selfless individual who is prepared to put his life on the line for anyone. He can be compassionate and understanding, but he also has a sense of maturity and accountability that stops him from acting on emotional impulses, even if he regrets it afterward. 

He is obviously very protective of his peers, especially when they are ill or injured. According to the Ultra Archive book, his affections for his buddies are stronger than anybody else’s, and he is willing to sacrifice himself for them.

Despite his friendly demeanor many fans still lean into this theory simply because of his tough appearance. He is a tall, strong young guy with pale gray hair brushed forward and almost at a right angle over his eye. 

Only the front two arms have hands when his Quirk is not in use, while the rest end in thin stumps. He has six arms, all of which are physically powerful and are connected by a web of skin.

Aside from the appearance that makes him look like a villain, there are a few more things that suggest he could be the traitor. 

For one, his quirk of heightened hearing would make it extremely easy to eavesdrop on other students. This is further played on by his ambiguous back story. 

Despite a lot of evidence, many fans believe that his personality makes it highly unlikely that he is the traitor, but many others consider this a quite convincing theory. 

6. Nezu

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

There is no one above Nezu at the UA when it comes to authority, yet many fans have questioned his responsibility for all of the power he wields. 

For starters, he’s not human and appears to harbor deep resentment toward those who treated him like a lab rat and subjected him to malicious experiments.

His position as the principal would make it extremely easy for him to gather and share important information.

Given that the League of Villains has such a detailed understanding of areas that should only be known by U.A. employees, nearly everyone at the institution is suspect. 

Even yet, there would be some details that not every teacher would be aware of…unless they were the school’s principal.

Principal Nezu may appear to be a kind and cuddly little cat, but he has a cruel side to him. Nezu still has a hatred against humans and likes messing with them as a result of being experimented on by them.

5. Momo Yaoyorozu 

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

The thing that plays into this theory is Momo’smesterious background. A little is known about her aside from the fact that she comes from a royal family. Although that much is clear the identity of her parents is actually unknown. 

This is what makes this theory so plausible, however, one thing to note is that she most likely doesn’t know she is a traitor if she actually is the traitor. 

Although this theory is extensively backed up with evidence and many fans believe that it is true since it makes so much sense there is actually a plethora of evidence that shows that the theory may not be as convincing as it seems at first. 

Momo has demonstrated how seriously she takes being a hero and how she cares for her companions, despite her intelligence and versatility. Her strongest defense came when she planted a tracker on one of the Nomus during the training camp raid, which led to Bakugo’s rescue as well as a struggle with and subsequent incarceration of All For One.

4. Yuga Aoyama

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

Yuga appears to be someone who wouldn’t even consider harming others around him. His social discomfort, on the other hand, implies that there’s a lot more to him than meets the eye. When the pupils of Class 1-A met the criminals, Yuga had a lengthy history of disappearing in the face of peril.

While his disappearances are never recognized since everyone assumes he’s simply frightened of confrontation, they might be a sign of his connection with the evil people.

Uraraka had a crush on Midoriya and Yuga knew that before she ever confessed it to herself, and he was well aware of Midoriya’s quirks. This suggests that Aoyama keeps a closer eye on his 1-A students than he admits. 

As the story proceeds, though, Aoyama appears to become more naive. He grew close to Midoriya and told her that all he wants is more friends. Of course, this may be a diversion, but he appears to be innocent.

3. Vlad King

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

While the majority of theories blame UA High School students, there are a few who accuse staff member Vlad King of the crime. One explanation for this idea is because, during the USJ attack, none of the villains were aware of Class 1-A’s peculiarities. 

This automatically labels all class 1-A students as traitors, because the traitor would be well-versed in their peers’ talents and would have informed the baddies.

Vlad has also shown an unusual degree of curiosity in learning more about the peculiarities of Class 1-A in other instances. In addition, when Aizawa defended Bakugo during a news conference, he appeared exceedingly nervous.

Monoma from 1-B is typically the one who shows the pettiest jealousy towards Class 1-A, and while Vlad sees them and Eraserhead as rivals, he maintains a level head, unless it’s all an act.

There’s the truth that Vlad King was a part of both big league attacks, including when they struck the training camp, which only a few people, including Vlad himself, were aware of. So there’s a chance Vlad King was working for the League of Villains as an informant.

2. There is more than one traitor

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

By now, it’s clear that the traitor must be capable of fighting toe-to-toe with some of the school’s top pupils, such as Midoriya and Bakugo, but perhaps there isn’t just one traitor, but a whole gang of them.

There isn’t a single traitor among the bunch. There are several. It’s possible that a whole class will be affected. Perhaps 2A or 3B. This gives Class 1A a new team of villains to battle, all of whom have considerably more experience than Midoriya, Bakugo, or anybody else we’ve seen so far, save the big 3. 

The traitor also has a significant influence on Midoriya, as the great school that he attends recently trained approximately 20 villains and had a large number of pupils convert to the evil side without realizing it. 

This would drastically change the tale, and if Horikoshi doesn’t want anyone from Class 1A to leave, it would be an excellent way to keep the traitor plotline intriguing.

1. No One is The Traitor

Who is the U.A Traitor? 10 Best Fan Theories

The impression that there isn’t a genuine traitor originates from Horikoshi’s complete disregard for the traitor plotline, which hasn’t been discussed in a long time is the major piece of supporting evidence fans bring up while discussing this theory. 

Another possibility is that there is no traitor at all. After all, it was a notion proposed by Present Mic on one occasion with little proof other than the League’s seemingly constant knowledge of what was going on. 

However, it’s possible that they acquire their information in a different way, and Horikoshi keeps forgetting about the traitor subplot because there isn’t one.

Although it would be an underwhelming way to solve this plotline that the fans are heavily invested in, this kind of ending would actually surprise the biggest amount of fans and would make for a quite interesting twist.

Who Is The UA Traitor? 10 Fan Theories That Make Too Much Sense

There are plentiful fan theories in My Hero Academiaabout the possibility of one of the students or teachers in U.A. being a traitor to Class 1-A for the League of Villains. The idea was presented by Present Mic and actually hasn't really been mentioned again, but that hasn't stopped fans from making tons of fan theories.

RELATED: My Hero Academia: 5 Reasons Kirishima Is The Traitor (& 5 It’s Kaminari)

Pretty much every character has been suspected for one reason or another. Even the lead three Academia boys, Midoriya, Bakugo, and Todoroki, were considered at one point. But with so little information and so little focus on the actual traitor, the best any fan can do for now is to simply guess.

10 Kohei Horikoshi Forgot

One of the big theories of the U.A. traitor is a rather simple idea. The theory is that Kohei Horikoshi simply forgot about that subplot altogether. Apparently, Horikoshi has even mentioned that he totally forgot about the subplot on two separate occasions. This could be one of the main reasons fans have had such little insight on the traitor overall. This could actually be a good thing for the fandom. If Horikoshi forgets of the subplot, fans won't get the chance to be given so many clues, making the grand reveal even bigger once (and if) it comes to fruition.

9 Monoma Nieto

The idea of Monoma Nieto being the traitor seems extremely predictable due to his quirk and strange disdain for class 1-A, as though this idea were too good to be true. Of course, fans have assumed that he is the traitor, but if anything Monoma seems more like a red herring than anything else. For starters, he isn't actually in class 1-A, so while he can report back to the League, he wouldn't have as much information as the other suspects would.

8 Himiko Toga

Toga is another usual suspect due to her quirk that allows her to take the shape of anyone whose blood she possesses. The theory is that Toga has been pretending to be a student at U.A. the entire time. However, considering Midoriya found her out pretty quickly when she pretended to be Uraraka, it kind of implies that Toga may have the ability to appear like anyone else, but she cannot act like anyone else.

RELATED: My Hero Academia: 5 Reasons Why Nine Could Have Been All For One’s Replacement (& 5 Why Shigaraki Is The Perfect Candidate)

The fact that she was at the license exam in the first place also shows that she cannot be anyone in 1-A, since she cannot be two people at the same time.

7 Denki Kaminari

A common theory amongst My Hero Academia fans is the idea that Kaminari is the traitor of U.A.. Many fans of the series really like Kaminari so they'll feel the sting of betrayal if he were to be the traitor, especially because of his relationships with the rest of 1-A, particularly Bakugo and Jiro. Fans believe that Kaminari may be acting dumb but really is a lot more sinister and intelligent than he lets on. This twist would be pretty extreme.

6 Toru Hagakure

Another popular theory is the idea of a character that is, literally, hidden in plain sight. Toru (Invisible Girl) is another of the most popularly accused in the U.A. Traitor fan theories. She is invisible so that means she can be anywhere at any time and the class wouldn't even know it. This theory has a few flaws, though.

Firstly, Toru isn't the first character with an invisibility quirk, which means that there are probably precautions in place to avoid and detect her quirk. This theory is also a bit lackluster, the series hasn't really made Toru the most lovable of characters as she gets probably the least amount of dialogue and screentime, regardless of whether she is invisible or not. Toru being the traitor would have little to no effect on the audience as no one really feels all that connected to her.

5 Minoru Mineta

The idea of Mineta being the traitor is more of a hope than a theory. Fans are extremely divided about their interest in Mineta, they either love him or hate him, with no real space between. Some fans are more than hoping he is the traitor just to justify all his sleazy antics and strange personality. But it also incredibly unlikely Mineta is actually the traitor, or anything more than just the strange comic relief of class 1-A. Plus it is unlikely Mineta would betray all of his crushes in class like that.

4 Yuga Aoyama

Aoyama was another suspect on the list for a while, even Midoriya thought he may be. Aoyama seems to know everything about everyone. He knew Uraraka had a crush on Midoriya before she even admitted it to herself, and knew about Midoriya's quirk pretty well. This implies that Aoyama is always watching his classmates of 1-A more than he lets on. However, Aoyama seems more and more innocent as the show progresses. He became pretty close to Midoriya and explained that he just wants more friends. This, of course, maybe a distraction, but it's looking like he is innocent.

3 Ochako Uraraka

One of the most extreme theories that most likely will not occur due to how shonen anime typically works is that Uraraka is the traitor of 1-A. Ochako is not only one of Izuku's closest friends and allies, she also is the closest thing to a love interest within the series. Uraraka is the first person Deku saved with his powers and ultimately what got him into U.A. in the first place.

RELATED: My Hero Academia: 5 Pairings The Manga Has Already Teased (& 5 Fans Want To See Happen)

The two have a great relationship with another and are constantly supporting each other, along with their other closest friend, Iida. But many fans have pointed out that the idea of Uraraka being the traitor is possible due to her financial situation. She wants to be a hero for money so that she can help support her family. But who is to say she wouldn't just as easily be a villain for the same reasons?

2 Momo Yaoyorozu

A popular theory that had been spread around on Reddit was the idea that Yaoyorozu may be the traitor. The Reddit user originally made a large post explaining why every other suspect was unlikely and had a list of highly potential candidates and why none of them were the actual traitor. All except for Yaomomo. The original post explained that they were planning on making a part two to the theory, in order to explain why Yaomomo would be the perfect suspect but never went through with it, leaving many fans and followers of the subreddit waiting in suspense. Yaomomo being the traitor would be pretty painful as she is a fan-favorite character and extremely close to many of the students in class 1-A.

1 There Is No Traitor

The idea of there not being an actual traitor stems back to the fact that Horikoshi totally forgot about the traitor subplot and that it hasn't really been mentioned in a while. So another possible theory is that there actually is no traitor. After all, it was an idea suggested by Present Mic on one occasion and didn't really have much evidence other than the fact that the League seemed to always know what was going on. But maybe they gather their intel in another manner, and perhaps the reason Horikoshi keeps forgetting about the traitor subplot is because there is no actual traitor involved.
