    “Can you turn it down a notch? Right now, we need to worry about getting away from these enemies!” – Kyoka Jiro and Momo Yaoyorozu

    These two ladies have a harmonious relationship in Class 1A, working together as students, friends, and as heroes! Becoming fast friends right from the start, with Momo leading study groups with Jiro and the other Class 1A freshmen, and Jiro coming to the aid of Momo and the other girls when Mineta gets too handsy. 

    Momo and Jiro’s friendship is apparent even in the world of the My Hero Academia CCG! Jiro and Momo both utilize Weapons and Assets, albeit in different ways. Sharing two symbols, their kits work in perfect symphony with each other, complementing each others’ abilities just as much as their own. 

    Create: Capturing Net and Unwavering Slash have both Charge and Weapon keyword traits, giving Jiro the opportunity to respond with both of her offensive abilities, and also allowing Momo to interact with them with all of her cards. Create: Capturing Net naturally plays after a foundation that you’d like to build off its own enhance and activate its combo ability, saving valuable Momo activations for later. Meanwhile, Unwavering Slash can build any asset card from your discard pile, ready a card, and draw a card— and both characters have an asset in their kit that they’d love to have in their stage.

    Jiro and Momo are definitely Destined For Mainstream Success, and while Jiro certainly uses the card well because of her scouting mechanic, any good player should know the construction of their deck to maximise the odds of naming the right card type. When the dynamic duo are Preparing For Battle, they try their best to complement each other’s fortes—and this card reverberates echoes of Jiro’s own 1 difficulty foundation. 

    Whether you play Momo, creating opportunities against your rival, or as Jiro, planning ahead and executing a stellar riff, you’ll find their cards work in consonance with each other, reflecting the special friendship these two characters have.

    You can find Momo, Jiro, and many other heroes and villains in the My Hero Academia CCG, available now!

  • Kyoka Jiro shreds her way to the stage in the My Hero Academia CCG! Collect her cards and more in the Series 1 booster packs.

    “Strength doesn’t make a hero, true heroes stand up for what they believe.” 

    – Kyoka Jiro

    Jiro is a pragmatic, organized, demure member of Class 1A, settling scores with her Quirk, “Earphone Jack”, which allows her to plug into any object they can pierce and hear even the smallest vibrations passing through them. Not only that, she can channel the sound of her own heartbeat through whatever she plugs into, attacking evildoers with soundwaves and leaving them in discord! Jiro prefers to plan ahead and create favorable situations, and her quirk is key to scouting and to bringing conflicts to a close. 

    With her character card, you can plug in and scout ahead of both players’ decks, giving you valuable information over the course of the game. When you need to go on the offensive, Jiro allows you a unique deck-building decision: Will you create a crescendo with super strong Charge attacks? Slice through defenses with super fast Weapon attacks? Or create a delicate harmony between the two? 

    “I’m sorry, next time I’ll ask before saving our butts.” – Kyoka Jiro

    Lucky for you, Jiro’s attack lineup is a chorus full of charges and weapons that will bridge the gap for you! Jazz things up with Specialized Sound Waves, drawing a card whether you play it as an attack or a block. On offense, you can lay a nasty trap on top of your rival’s deck, stack your own to draw off its own effect, or create a safety net for later. Jiro isn’t just a musical prodigy, though, as she uses the Improvised Blade created by her friend Momo Yaoyorozu, letting you double up on damage and speed for each card in your card pool with this major Weapon attack! 

    Jiro’s boots and gloves aren’t just stylish punk-rock apparel, they’re also UA-designed hero gear, functioning as amplifiers for her already powerful heartbeat distortion waves! Use her Earphone Jack asset to discard cards you’d rather your rival didn’t have later, while enhancing your own charge attacks—and when the time is right, ready a foundation that you’ve used earlier in the combat phase!  

    “Jiro, why not use your skill to make other people smile?” – Koji Koda

    Jiro is a talented musician, an experienced vanguard and acts as Class 1A’s Specialist of Sound. Using this card, you can bring your rival’s attacks to a slower tempo, and using Jiro’s own ability, stack it in such a way that you can peek at a 3rd card from the top of your own deck!

    Kyoka Jiro is a versatile and unique character, able to use several different lineups of attacks on 3 different symbols. Try combining her charges with Ochako Uraraka’s on the Air symbol, or her weapons with her best friend Momo Yaoyorozu’s on the All or Good symbol!

    Whatever you choose for your concerto, you’ll find Jiro and her classmates in the My Hero Academia CCG, available now!

    Character Intro: Momo Yaoyorozu

  • Momo Yaoyorozu creates a new way to play in the My Hero Academia CCG! Collect her cards and more in the Series 1 booster packs.

    “Start with the basics and devote oneself wholeheartedly to learning, it’s the only way to become a top hero.”

     – Momo Yaoyorozu

    Momo Yaoyorozu is a dedicated, kind, natural leader to the other members of Class 1A. Although her genius intellect is not her quirk, it only enhances its use; “Creation” allows her to convert lipids within her body into non-living material of any kind, as long as she understands and can replicate the molecular structure of the material she’s creating. 

    Use Momo’s character card to “create” weapons and build crucial foundations and assets on the fly! Her enhance allows her to build in foundations that are in her card pool on offense and defense, making her extremly deft at keeping an empty card pool for more blocks and attacks!
    Once per turn, she can add a Weapon card from her discard pile to her hand, giving her limitless options for what she can do. 

    One of only 4 freshman students to have been admitted on recommendation, Momo is expected to be a star pupil at UA. Quick thinking and smart planning allow her to keep on top of her studies, and using Quick Creation, you can modify the damage of an attack and fuel Momo’s top enhance! Should your rival go beyond into deadlock, commit this versatile asset to double the speed and damage of your weapon attack, and pack a wallop! 

    “Wait, your clothes got super punk!” – Kyoka Jiro

    Momo knows her quirk alone can’t subdue villains, so she became a student of hand weapon combat, Bukijutsu. Slam your rival with Staff Strike, drawing a card for each foundation in your card pool. If you plan ahead and meet the combo requirement, the pay-off can be devastating, allowing your next 2 Weapon cards to be played without adding in progressive difficulty! Use the Powerful ability to create a world where your rival is at 0 health!

    “This girl has a good eye on her!” – All Might

    Any budding hero-to-be knows that they should Start With The Basics, and the basics of the My Hero Academia CCG tell us that adding speed and damage to our Weapon attacks are a good thing! Knowledge is power, kindness is preservation, and beauty is a Weapon—this Rising Starlet uses all the tools at her disposal (including her good looks!) to get ahead of the competition. This card lets you gain 1 health after building it (whether or not it is with Momo’s enhance!) and flips to double up on Momo’s own effect, allowing other characters to use a facsimile of her own ability. 

    Creativity is key when playing Momo, and using her support, the sky is the limit! Build your deck using the All symbol to fill your hand with resources, or the Good symbol if you’d like stock up on valuable foundations to convert into creations later.

    Remember to start with the basics when you get into the My Hero Academia CCG, available now! 

    Character Intro: Tomura Shiguraki

  • “Symbol of Peace? Ha! You’re just an instrument of violence… and violence always breeds more violence.” – Tomura Shigaraki

    Just as All Might serves as a paragon of good, truth and justice, Tomura Shigaraki shows what the dark underbelly of the hero world looks like. A malevolent and twisted villain, Shigaraki sees the unfairness in the world of My Hero Academia, and instead of seeking to improve it, simply wants to see it destroyed. Somewhat aptly, Shigaraki’s Quirk “Decay” allows him to disintegrate whatever he touches to ash.

    Much like in the series, Shigaraki’s character card takes advantage of any “contact” with the opponent—-withering away health from his rivals upon a successful hit, and destroying valuable foundations upon a successful block! Heroes beware, as any misstep can spell doom against this powerful, unhinged villain.

    “Every living, breathing thing just rubs me the wrong way. So why not destroy it all?” – Tomura Shigaraki

    Just like Shigaraki, you can use Turn to Dust to create a horrifying dilemma for your rival: Will they lose 4 health and save vital foundations? Or sacrifice crucial resources to stay topped up on health? Use the Ex and Stun abilities to pressure your opponent’s board and connect a hit so that Shigaraki’s response can deteriorate your rival’s health total!

    Shigaraki’s fury-ous assault doesn’t end there—Make a Villainous Entrance to remember, and use Shigaraki’s Touch of Decay to disintegrate any do-gooders that might get in your way! Combo together Shigaraki’s devastating arsenal of Fury attacks to rot away your rival’s defenses and score a win for the League of Villains.

    Quandaries abound for heroes facing Shigaraki—allow this villain’s attacks through and his response will wither away your health total, but block and these tricky cards will leave Shigaraki with more than he started with!

    Shigaraki’s Decaying Grip will leave your rival rotting on both offense and defense, readying your character on block and allowing Shigaraki’s character ability to be used a second time! On offense, Decaying Grip’s combo enhance can catch your rival without a block, as it limits their options for what they can attempt to play

    “That’s why we need a symbol like you, Tomura. Next time, the world will know of the terror you represent!” – ???

    Any villain worth his salt never leaves anything up to chance though, and just one look into Shigaraki’s Evil Gaze will send shivers down the spine of any would-be hero. Surprise your rival with this versatile action card from hand, and either make your own attack fast enough to race past defenses, or slow down the competition. Adding injury to insult, Shigaraki can respond with his own ability to destroy an additional rival foundation on block!

    Shigaraki is a versatile character that can allow for many avenues to success. For blistering speed and damage output, try playing on the Fire symbol to blaze past your rival’s defenses, or if controlling the game is your preference, play him on Death to destroy resources and create favorable board states.

    Whatever the case may be, you’ll be able to find Tomura Shigaraki and many more Heroes and Villains alike this fall in the My Hero Academia CCG!
