My Hero Academia: 5 Villains Inspired by Stain’s Ideology

In My Hero Academia, Stain is a different kind of villain. He kills heroes not for personal gain, but for the betterment of society. Stain’s objective is to rid the Hero Association of fake heroes who are only after wealth and fame. His ideology has inspired many villains in the series. In this article, we’ll discuss 5 villains in My Hero Academia who are inspired by Stain.

1. Dabi

Dabi is a victim of the dark side of hero society. He is the son of the famous hero, Endeavour, whose blind ambition shattered Dabi’s life. After being burned all over his body, Toya Todoroki became Dabi and joined the League of Villains. Unlike Tomura Shigaraki, whose goal is to destroy society, Dabi wants to fix the hero system. He wants to expose the dark side of heroes to the world.

During the battle between heroes and the Paranormal Liberation Front, Dabi’s objective wasn’t just to seek revenge on his father but also to realize Stain’s ideology. From this, we can infer that Dabi is also inspired by Stain’s ideology.

2. Spinner

Spinner became a victim of discrimination due to his appearance, which is different from others because of his Quirk. Mocked by the people around him, Spinner spent most of his time playing video games in his room. One day, he saw Stain on television and was inspired by his ideology. That’s why Spinner joined the League of Villains.

Unlike Shigaraki, who only wants to destroy society, Spinner wants to improve society. He remains loyal to Stain even though he works for Shigaraki. This was shown when he saved Deku just because Stain respected him.

3. Giran

Giran is a broker who prioritizes money over morality. However, his ideology was also influenced by Stain. Giran once said that Stain’s lifestyle is contagious. Therefore, he keeps telling other villains about Stain in the hope of seeing how his ideology can influence society. With many villains inspired by Stain, the environment would experience a significant change.

4. Himiko Toga

Himiko Toga suffered from the negative effects of her Quirk. Due to her Quirk being related to blood, Himiko became fascinated with it. This was so unusual that she was isolated, even by her own family. Himiko joined the League of Villains because she had no home to go to. But after Twice’s death, Stain’s ideology started to influence her. She wants to remove the discrimination against people like Twice or herself.

5. Seiji Shishikura

Seiji Shishikura is not a villain. Instead, he’s a hero from Shiketsu High School. As a hero, of course, Seiji would deny that he admires Stain. However, he firmly holds onto the same ideology as Stain. Seiji also wants to get rid of all fake heroes or people who are not worthy of being heroes. During the provisional hero license exam, Seiji prioritized getting rid of students he thought were unworthy of being heroes rather than attempting to pass the exam.

Although he’s introduced as a villain, Stain’s ideology has inspired many people. Behind his criminal actions, Stain probably had something for the greater good. So, what do you think about the 5 characters mentioned above in My Hero Academia who were inspired by Stain’s ideology?
