- AU where Midnight is Izuku's biological parent in some way, shape, or form. (I've only found one bio momnight and that's a travesty)
- Villains to heroes or heroes to villains KamiDeku.
- H-Houndad?? (AKA Inui Ryo parenting someone. Maybe Izuku, Hitoshi, or Katsuki?)
- AU where Izuku and Mei are siblings. (Chaos duo, unite!)
- Still riding the Hatsume Mei high, how about a 5+1 thing involving her?
- Izuku being close with the LoV. (As a hero or as a villain, both are hella nice.)
- Rei and Inko being good friends because they're both great moms.
- A sorta roleswap deal. LoV as heroes and UA as villains.
- AU where Hitoshi and Izuku are siblings. (I've found a handful of fics about it and every single one is amazing.)
- UA children actually getting some therapy.
- AU where Izuku is a Todoroki.
- Inko adopting the younger LoV members before they become villains. (Younger members meaning Himiko, Tenko, and Dabi.)
- Can I get some uhhhhhhhhhhh traitor Momo?
- Izuku with a telepathy quirk. (I love the thought that sometimes he just accidentally broadcasts his thoughts similar to his mumbling habits.)
- AU where Izuku is around Kota and Eri's age during the events of BNHA and him just being friends with them.
- Nezu mentoring Izuku because the bean is hella smart.
- Izuku being taken in by the Wild Wild Pussycats. (Kinda like how Kota was after the whole Waterhose death happened.)
- Nighteye adopting Izuku after something or other happens to Inko. (I'm sorry Inko I don't hate you ; - ; )
- I wanna see an AU where Izuku and Shouji are childhood friends. Maybe add in Tokoyami too because you know I love the birb son.
- Hanahaki disease IiDeku.
If you use any of these and make a fic or art out of it, send me a link! I'd love to see it!
Chapter 2: Back at it again at krispy kreme
We're back again, cause my brainhole wouldn't shut up last night. So here's a fresh, smaller batch of ideas!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
- A Spiderman AU with some SeroDeku. (This came about only because Hanta's like Spiderman, just without the senses and shoots stuff from his elbows instead of his wrist.)
- Dadmic havin' some trouble with raising an Izu with a bug quirk.
- Guardian angel AU with KiriDeku.
- I want some poly 1-A because you know they have enough love and support for 20 people. (Minus Mineta and plus Shinsou ofc.)
- Just some plain ShinKamiSeroDeku. (Idk if that's the ship name or not cause I haven't found anything for it.)
- More of Dabi being like a brother to Izuku. (All of the fics with this are soooo good.)
- Izuku getting adopted by the Iida's maybe? (Don't @ me, I like fics with that too.)
- Some shenanigans the chaos quartet got up to in their UA days. (Chaos quartet being Shouta, Hizashi, Nemuri, and Tensei.)
- AU where Izuku, Shouto, Hitoshi, and Denki are all vigilantes. (Or villains, both work tbh.)
- Danganronpa AU. That's it. (No, not a crossover. Just BNHA characters in a Danganronpa scenario ig.)
- Idk how y'all would make this work, but ping pong AU.
That's it for this installment of Tiny Prompts. Tune in next time for more fever dream ideas, lmao.
Anyways, like last time, feel free to use these or edit these a bit. And if you make something with them, show it to me, cause I love me some c o n t e n t.
Chapter 3: I ain't ready
School starts in exactly 11 hours and 8 minutes, so have some stuff as I panic.
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
- A classic tutor AU, where Izuku tutors Denki, and then, as 80% of tutor AU's go, love blossoms.
- Battle Of The Bands AU where it's the Dekusquad vs the Bakusquad.
- Idk if this has ever been done, but a Speedrunner Rivalry AU where Izuku and Katsuki or Shouto go back and forth with the world record. (Not the game Speedrunners, but the people who try and complete games as fast as possible.)
- Remember that Danganronpa AU I went off about last time? How about a 999 AU? (I love my mystery games okay.)
- Tokoyami getting embarrassed because his poems somehow got snatched by his class and it turns out 1-A really likes them.
- AU where Izuku and Eri basically switch places. (Izu as the child being used for experiments and Eri as the UA student.)
- Hawks being Izuku's older brother.
- AU where Hisashi is AFO and he's actually a good dad.
- AU where UA is basically Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute from Shokugeki no Soma.
- Carpenter Izuku and welder Katsuki. (Don't ask me where this came from, I don't have a damn clue.)
- Wei, Kanjian Erduo La (Or as it's more commonly known as, Hora Mimi.) AU.
- A daycare AU where Shouta is a tired dad but would die for the tiny children.
- AU where Izuku is basically a cryptid.
Sorry if is batch seems kinda half-baked or dumb;;
As always, if you use any of these for any purpose, show me what you did with it! I love seeing what other people can do and how they put their own spin on things!
Chapter 4: Oh, worm??
It's almost five am, and instead of sleeping like I should be, I'm here yet again.
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
- What if Hisashi and Inko were a vigilante duo?
- Shouta having dogs surround him while the cats that he wants completely ignore him.
- Bartender Izuku listening to the pro heroes from 1-A talk about their woes.
- AU where Izuku is a snakey boi. (Take that however you will. He's a naga/lamia? Sure. He just loves snakes? Dope.)
- AU where Izuku and Ochako are siblings.
- What if Nana was Izuku's predecessor instead of Toshinori?
- AU where Izuku is an exorcist but he just helps the ghosts/demons/whatever through their problems until they go back. (And maybe he accidentally makes some stick around longer because f r i e n d s h i p.)
- Can I get a March Comes In Like A Lion AU?
- AU where Tamaki is Izuku's older brother.
- An Ouran Highschool Host Club AU.
- Roller Derby AU???
- Atsuhiro being Izuku's uncle? (I swear I'm not on drugs, please don't send the police to my house and have them rummage through my belongings.)
- ShinDeku AU where the roles of them and EraserMic are swapped. (Listen, you can't tell me that Hitoshi isn't like Shouta, and you also can't tell me Izuku doesn't have a smidge of Hizashi's personality.)
- AU where Izuku is trapped in a mirror and spends his time talking to the person who that mirror belongs to. (Any pairing is applicable here. Also I got this idea because I was thinking of Through The Looking Glass and then thought about AU's with mirrors.)
I swear I don't mean to have so many AU's where other people are Izu's family, but you gotta admit, they're really addicting.
Also I swear I can feel my already small amount of skill just evaporating the longer I try to come up with ideas for this.
As always, feel free to use these, and if you do, show me what you did with them!
Chapter 5: M o R T i s
Oof, didn't mean to procrastinate this hard, but man school fucking s u c c s. Tryna weasel my way out of AP Prep Chem right now and it ain't goin' in my favor T - T
Also why's this round named mortis? I dunno, I've just been thinkin' about that world all day so here it is lmao
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
- Remember that AU where Izuku n Hitoshi are brothers? Well, lemee introduce y'all to siamese twins Izuku n Hitoshi.
- Can I get some ghibli AU's in here? (I really want a Ponyo or The Cat Returns AU tbh. Big nostalgia with those two.)
- Pokemon AU, but instead of Izuku tryna be the best trainer there ever was or anythin' like that, he lives with the Ultra Beasts and they all protecc him. (Don't ruin my career for offering this next suggestion, but what if Inko was like Lusamine in here? Izuku isn't taking Lillie's role or anything (cause in a perfect world he'd live in Ultra Space with the lads then get yoinkused out once Inko does her freaky wormhole opening thing.) but just having a batshit insane Inko seems fun. Also this whole train of though was brought on by the AUs where Izuku is a space boi or is an alien, so props to all y'all who write those fics!)
- AU where Izuku can see everything that's going to happen in his future, but he can't retain memories for more than a day. (Basically the Remembrance episodes from Beryl And Sapphire but shoved into BNHA.)
- ShinDeku AU where Hitoshi is a siren and Izuku is a deep-sea mer. (Bonus points if you make the green bean look scary AND bio-luminescent.)
- Street Performer AU where Izuku is a dancer or does those fun lil entertainment bits.
- What if Inko was an underground hero?
- What if BNHA was just an environmental war. Heroes are trying to convince people to not be terrible and throw their trash everywhere, and the villains are the people that promote deforesting, use of various chemicals, etc. (I swear my brain is still intact I just suddenly got the idea and said to hell with it let's put it on here.)
- Initial D AU. (That's it, onto the next one fools.)
- Half Bad series AU. Izuku takes the place of Nathan and is the spawn of a black witch and white witch, leaving him half-black half-white. Featuring Katsuki as Jessica, some 1-A or 1-B fodder as Deborah and Arran (They ain't important in the books, let's be honest here.), Nana as Izuku's grandmother, a good dad Hisashi AKA AFO as Marcus, Shouto as Annalise, and whomever you want as Gabriel and anyone else I didn't mention. (Please don't attempt this if you haven't read the series cause a lotta shit won't make sense unless you do. Also not gonna lie, I'm gunning for Hitoshi or Eijirou as Gabriel but chose whoever y'all want.)
- AU where UA is actually a mental ward/asylum. (I don't mean to hurt the kiddos but it sounds too interesting for me to pass up.)
- AU where Izuku is a dryad.
That's it y'all. Some of these have clearly been stewing around in my brain for a while so yeehaw. Also we almost went a chapter without adding someone into Izuku's family, but in the end I couldn't stop myself. Where's Toshinori you may be thinking? I dunno, the Bone Man hasn't found a use yet so he's not here lmao. Tbh I don't like Toshinori all that much. I don't know why, but I prefer most of the cast over him.
Also, sorry if some of my more enthusiastic thought were hard to understand. I have trouble organizing my thought a lot of the time and go off on small tangents occasionally (Never aloud though, you won't catch me dead doing that.), which leads to this clusterfuck. I tried to keep them short before now so this wouldn't but the dam has burst and I don't have any glue to shove the pieces back in place so sink or swim fools. (I ain't insultin' y'all I just like using fools a lot. I'm a fool, my friends are fools, strangers are fools, inanimate objects are fools... Literally everything can be and is a fool in my eyes.)
As always, if you use any of these, show me what you did with the idea! I want to gaze apon its elegance in the form someone with competence has molded it into.
Now it's time for me to run lest someone decides to skin me for adding even more tags to this dummy thicc plethora of sewage. (And sorry for this large end note, it probably won't happen again;;)
Chapter 6: Roasty Toasty
I wanna say thank y'all for the comments! I don't respond to most cause I'm a fool and don't know how to have a conversation, but know that I appreciate every single one! <33
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
- AU where Izuku goes to Shiketsu instead of UA.
- UA decides to raid Area 51. (What if they found Mina there? I mean, she looks kinda alien-like. Oh my god that give me an idea.)
- AU where Ochacko is a space explorer and meets an alien Mina. (Yes, perfect.)
- AU where Izuku never goes to UA or gets OFA. Instead, he's a hero content creator. (Basically he makes art, videos, merch, whatever. Fandom stuff, y'know?)
- AU where Izuku and Kouji run an animal shelter! (Bonus points if Tokoyami, Tsuyu, Tamaki, and Ojirou work there.)
- Izuku and Yuuga being absolute beauty gurus. (Helping their classmates with nails/makeup/whatever people do to look pretty. Maybe they even run a lil Youtube channel.)
- AU where Izuku, Hitoshi, Neito, Tooru, and Shihai are a vigilante group. (Yes I know I already recommended a thing where Izuku and Hitoshi are in a vigilante group, but I'm doing it again because I can.)
- Child Izuku AU where he's Mina's younger brother. (Why did I do this? Because I can and I love them both a lot.)
- Fallen Angel Izuku.
- Scenekids AU.
- AU where Toshinori is hella abusive towards Izuku. (Yep, here's the single idea I have that includes Toshinori, and it's painting him in a bad light. Again, I don't like Toshinori too much.)
- AU where Rei and Inko are swapped. (As in Inko is a Todoroki and Rei is a Midoriya. Feel free to swap their quirks too or to leave them the same. (And if you leave em the same I wanna see how it affects the kids quirks.))
- Chatfic with villain Izuku. (Tbh I just want to see the LoV acting like complete fucking lunatics with Izuku and just generally making me wheeze every other second.) (PotatoPatato has made an excellent fic using this idea called Ready Player Two! Go check it out, it's hella great!)
- AU where Kurogiri is Izuku's biological father. (Mister mist man. Mist me a man. Make it the cutest man car hook door hand.)
- Oh boy here's a thicc one. AU where Chizome and Shouta are both Izuku's uncles but they don't know that they're both his uncles if you get what I'm tryna say. (Shouta would prolly be Inko's brother while Chizome is Hisashi's brother. Bonus points if Chizome never turned to villainy and continued being the vigilante Stendhal. Double bonus if Inko somehow dies or gets in a coma and the two of them have a showdown for custody over the bean. (Stain freaking out because, oh, the kids other uncle is the hero who's been hunting him down. And Shouta just being exasperated because here's this vigilante who keeps getting away from him right in his face, related to his nephew. Also I guess Hisashi's dead or MIA or some shit, idk.)
- AU where Izuku is an Asui. (Inko can be his aunt or something, I dunno. My point here is that the Midoriya family looks a lot like Tsuyu and her mom.)
- Genius Izuku gets adopted by Higari.
- Quirkless Izuku AU, but he tries to erase quirks from existence because hims a bitter lad.
- AU where Izuku is an information broker to heroes and villains, but what they don't know is that he's really just scamming all of them with fake information.
- AU where Izuku and Shindo are brothers. (They look too similar to not be related in some way, I absolutely refuse to believe their families don't share any members.)
- Izuku with a quirk that makes anything he touches turn to stone. (Alternate wording of this idea: Izuku has a quirk that makes him Medusa and King Midas' love child. (That's actually how I phrased it in my notes lmao.))
- AU where Izuku is still a UA student, but he also lands himself a position as teacher or assistant teacher.
- AU where Izuku and Mustard are brothers. (Don't fuckin' shoot me, I s w e a r to heccle.)
- Izuku is a member of the Shie Hassakai and plans to take them down from within in order to save Eri.
- 100% Orange Juice AU where Izuku's just a guy who gets his wallet stolen and really wants it back, so he's forced to play weird board games.
- AU where Inko is one of those people who's so devoted to a religion their morals and sanity aren't exactly great. She tries to shove her beliefs onto Izuku who ain't havin' it and then big angst because w a h o o.
F e t u s d e l e t u s
Fun fact, everything you saw here was made during a 40 minute P.E assembly.
As always, if you use these in any way, shape or form, show me what you did with it! I wanna blast y'all with my love for the content.
- Magne taking in ftm Izu.
- Space mercenaries Midnight, Momo, Kirishima, Uraraka and Iida are hired to transport a crate from one planet to another. During the transit, the box is accidentally opened, and they learn it's holding a young-ish Izuku in cryonic stasis. (Idea submitted by Mad_Nimrod!)
- AU where Izuku has a time-travel quirk that he can't control, so he basically gets sent to random points in time and is stuck there until his quirk acts up again.
- Alright fools, yall've seen AU's where AFO gives Izu a quirk or five. But consider this. Izuku joins AFO's cause because he's told that in doing so, AFO will take his quirk. (Which he doesn't like, or hurts him, or something similar.)
- Arcade Spirits AU. (If you know what Arcade Spirits is, kudos to you and I hope you enjoyed it cause it's a kickass game.)
- Monster Hunter AU where a squad of Hunters (Any character from BNHA can be here) head out to slay a Barioth, but when they find the nest, they see Izuku being cared for by it. (Basically, big saber tooth cat thingy raises Izuku. Bonus points if he becomes a Rider from Monster Hunter Stories.)
- A no quirks AU where Izuku wants to be a great magician just like Sako.
- AU where Izuku is data born into the form of a human. (If y'all know Digimon Cyber Sleuth, it's like the main character. Made of data with no real 'body' (At least at the time.))
- Secret World Of Arriety AU where 1-A is hella tiny and has to take things from whoever lives in the house in order to survive. (I worded it really badly, but my brain says no to actual proper sentences today, so I guess I'll perish.)
- Villain dads? (Or Kurogiri and Sako adopt an abandoned Izuku.)
- Fantasy AU but it works like Miitopia. (IE: He gets party members and helps a town, then the members and his powers get Thanos Snapped into the void, and he has to do it all over again in the next town. Rinse and repeat thrice and bam, thats Miitopia. Don't worry though, he gets his party members back.)
- Another Monster Hunter AU, but this time Izuku is a Hunter who's also partially a monster (You can choose which species, I don't play enough to have a suggestion.) and he has to hide it from just about everyone. (Bonus points if he tries to reason with the monsters and only fights them when they don't listen.)
- A compilation of Katsuki's therapy sessions. (Which he desperately needs by the by. Prolly would be mostly focused on anger management, taking his superiority complex down a couple notches, and working with some PTSD he prolly has from Kamino. Also, woohoo, first Katsuki-centric prompt.)
- AU where Toshinori dies in his first fight against AFO and OFA dies out. (Basically I wanna see what would've happened if AFO won and what would happen to society because of it.)
- Forest of Piano AU. (Ngl, I've never watched it, but I say let it happen because fuck it, people seem to like it.)
- Fantasy AU where Izuku is a shopkeeper, and falls in love with the Prince and Barbarian who keep coming in to purchase his wares. (I actually have no fucking clue what Katsuki's class/job would be, so I just put down Barbarian because it seems close enough.
Thanks for not burning me about the terrible chapter that was here beforehand y'all.
As always, if you make something using these prompts/ideas, show it to me! It will automatically make my day!
Chapter 8: Soul Machine Broke
Sorry about this extremely late batch, I've been in the hospital since the 9th, and I just got out yesterday. I didn't have access to anything I could use to post shit so now here I am, way off from the general timeframe I like to post things in, which is about two weeks, maybe two and a half weeks, tops.
Now with that out of the way, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who commented a suggestion! Y'all have way better ideas than I do tbh, and I genuinely love all of your ideas!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
- Monsters Inc. AU where 1-A is training in order to become Scarers/Monsters Under The Bed. Problem is, Izuku isn't scary. At all. Instead he's just adorable, which is like being quirkless in this AU. (Think of the scariness of a monster to be like the quirk. If y'aint scary, then you have no quirk right?) Aizawa is some sort of snake/mummy thing who has his nonexistent hands full with trying to work with this problem child/monster. Bonus points if Eri is this AU's equivilent of Boo. (Idea submitted by Soba! (Sorry but I couldn't get to your profile for some reason, so I can't get a link for it;;))
- AU where Izuku is a famous fanfic writer. Obviously, he mainly writes about heroes. His most well-known fic is a slightly altered version of his story about becoming a hero. He also writes All Might x Endeavor smut fics lmao. (Idea submitted by Randomcookie737!)
- What if Inko was a nurse at a hospital, and a two month premature Izuku was found by her? She was fully prepared to just try and find him a good foster home, but a month and a half later she's completely attached, and this tiny bean is her son now. And then once Izuku gets to UA, they find out that he's related to one of the heroes there. Some possibilities could be Snipe, Higari, Aizawa, or Hizashi, but really it's anyone's game. (Idea submitted by azrael16!
- An AU where instead of Toshinori noticing the qualities of a hero in Izuku, he instead chooses Katsuki to inherit his quirk, the person least suited to get it in Izuku's opinion. Featuring Katsuki and Toshinori getting roasted to hell and back by a metric fuckton of people and an extremely bitter Izuku.
- What if BNHA was really just a show? An AU featuring the lives of Izuku and his friends as they film the hit television series, Boku No Hero Academia. In here BNHA is a live action thing instead of an anime. Let's see how our favorite heroes react to shipping wars, the unintentional creation of bloopers, and of course, the impossible task of going out in public while you're famous. (This was inspired by a Voltron fic called From The Top! Go check it out, I love it to bits and laughed a dozen times on every chapter!)
- AU where Shouto has both an angel and a demon watching over him, and they just happen to be Izuku and Katsuki, the loudest, most argumentative duo ever, with one trying to convince him to do the morally correct thing, and the other daring him to throw the rules out the window and act wild. (Honestly, it doesn't matter which is the angel and which is the demon. Angel!Izu and Demon!Katsu makes the most sense, but then we can get it the other way around with Katsuki being the most aggressive angel possible, and Izuku being a sassy, manipulative lil shit.)
- Aight my lads, lasses, and youth, here we go. Y'all've heard of mentor Toshinori, mentor Shouta, hell, even mentor Chizome. But, lemme introduce you to the hot new concept of mentor Koichi. An All Might fanboy teaching another All Might fanboy how to be a vigilante. Plus Shoko (Koichi's mom.) meeting Izuku and just saying something along the lines of "If you hurt this boy, I will break you." to Koichi.
- Quirk!Izuku AU where he has a quirk that drains the energy of anyone he touches. (You can make it a five-point contact quirk like Tomura's or Ochako's, or just a sorta 'Hey if you touch me at all, your energy is gonna get zucced.' sorta deal.) Unfortunately, he has a really hard time turning it off, and even then it doesn't stay off for long. Enter Shouta, a hero called to the scene of a murder, where the culprit it a four year old boy and the victim is one Midoriya Inko. He goes all Dadzawa mode and tries his absolute hardest to convince poor Izuku that no, he's not a villain, he didn't have any control over his quirk and he didn't know it could kill her, kid please stop you're not going to jail, etc. Then it turns out, hey, we can't put a kid with a volatile quirk like his in an orphanage what do we do? Then of fucking course Shouta ends up being the guardian of the kid, but despite his protests, he's pretty fucking happy that he gets to stick around the problem child. And throughout the years he tries to help Izuku control his quirk and is ready to throw hands with whoever even thinks of calling his son a villain or evil. (That's all I've got right now. Sorry this one was rambly, I'm just generally rambly;;)
- Lilo and Stitch AU featuring Izuku as Lilo, Katsuki as Stitch, Shouta as Nani (Lad was adopted by Inko.), prolly Hizashi as David, Dabi as Jumba, and Himiko as Pleakly. (Tbh feel free to switch the roles of Jumba and Pleakly with whoever, I just love Dabi n Himiko, and I also figured the big bad group of aliens would prolly be the LoV.)
- Last one is just a lil thing where Izuku and Tomura get on eachother's nerves a bunch and get into sass matches and other brotherly stuff but still love eachother because we need some heccin platonic love in this household. Some examples could be Izuku deleting Tomura's save file to play one of his games, them fighting over the last piece of food (Like pizza or pie or some shit I dunno.), and maybe even a thing with them as children and that whole "He's touching me!" "No I'm not!" bullshit. (This one seems half-assed because I'm tired but also because I have no fucking clue what siblings do. I have four but I just don't care enough to be involved, so the chemistry between siblings is a mystery to me.)
As always, if you make something using these prompts/ideas, show it to me! It'll give me the energy to not sleep through half the day. Also, feel free to suggest ideas whenever!
