    Summary

    The greatest threat to hero society isn't those who know only darkness- it's those who were born into the light and abandon it willingly.

    Once, Midoriya Izuku wanted nothing more than to be a hero, but heartbreak, time, and his idol's betrayal have changed that. Actions have consequences, and a person can only bear so much suffering and torment before they reach their breaking point. Midoriya has a new set of passions now, and a new group of friends- he's not the only U.A. student with a dark side, after all, and soon, the League won't be the only group of villains in town.

    As Izuku and his fellow ex-U.A. allies carve a bloody path through hero society, it falls to All Might's chosen successor, the new Symbol of Peace, to stop him- but at the end of the day, she's just one woman, surrounded by enemies, traitors, and false friends.

    All orderly systems gradually tend toward chaos. No one is immune to entropy, heroes least of all.

    Summary

    Being born quirkless wasn't a curse, Midoriya Izuku refused to believe that, and he would show the world through astonishing intellect, bravery, and a heart that feels for all paths he crosses that this is true. Even when damaged, ridiculed, and put down, he will be strong, for all these things are a challenge. A challenge from the very universe to become something great and change the foundation of society as he knows it.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku has been kicked, pushed, shoved, punched, and generally physically abused in just about every way possible by his classmates since it was revealed that he is, in fact, quirkless. In another world, he sticks it out, remains optimistic and friendly, and gets incredibly lucky in the form of a fateful encounter with the number one hero and a gifted quirk.

    This is not that world.

    Instead, Izuku takes his future into his one hands, and fights back. He's going to become a hero with or without a quirk, and he's ready to take on anyone who says otherwise.

    (Otherwise known as the AU in which Izuku never gets a quirk, but doesn't let that stop him from going to UA and becoming a hero anyways.)

    Summary

    “I—“ Izuku hesitated, gaping wordlessly, before admitting softly. “I don’t know. I just don’t want to go home. There’s nothing for me, there.”

    “So you filled this hole by playing detective— And how long is that going to last, I wonder?” Stain replied, still massaging his chin. “But you— You have potential.”

    Izuku blinked at Stain’s chest, before looking up. “Excuse me?”

    “What a waste would it be, to let you become a red splatter on the sidewalk.” Stain continued, almost contemplating. “No. No, kid, what you need is a new purpose. Your old one is gone? Well, time to get off your ass and find something else—“

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya thought things couldn't get any worse, only for things to suddenly take a more diabolical turn. Born as one of the 1 in 10,000 quirkless people of his generation, the prospects for his life's ambition - of being a hero - were a fragile dream; one that was shattered by his childhood hero, "Without power, can one become a hero? No, I should think not." Broken-hearted, Izuku slunk away from his meeting with All Might, thinking his existence couldn't get any lower, only for his life to quite literally go to Hell!

    Now with an imposing, supercharged new body and more power than most ever could dream of, Izuku has to grapple with the aftereffects of his transformation - both physical and psychological - and hunt down the rest of the demons that the cult unleashed, all while convincing people he's merely a "late-bloomer" and preparing for the UA entry exam. Only now he's not so sure, does he still want to be a Hero? And more importantly, is it even possible for something like him to be a hero?

    The Question is different now, but the stakes are all the same. Can a Devil be a Hero?

    Summary

    "If you can, you must." 
    Well. Izuku could raid the building and rescue its occupants. So he would. He had to.

     

    In a world where Quirks determine one's fate and people with the most useful Quirks are harvested to contribute to society, robbed of their future and freedom, being born Quirkless is a gift.

    Of course, Midoriya Izuku uses it to fight for those who can't.

    Summary

    Izuku doesn't care to fight. He's accepted the reality that being quirkless isn't possible in the field of heroism.

    Izuku doesn't care to fight. But he can't seem to change the part of him that obsesses over heroes and analyzes every move they make. He gains recognition online as user ALLMIGHTFAN3001 from users with good and bad intentions - users who seem interested in some random blogger who has the knowledge to topple heroes from their pedestals.
