Who is Deku’s Dad? Everything We Know!

Well, watching more anime than ever? Reading more mangas like crazy? Today I am back with another interesting topic or the answer to the question you might be looking forward to.

So, without any further delay let’s get started. But before that let’s look into the anime, and it’s about first. 

My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia

How many of you have watched this anime already raise your hand? Well don’t actually, I can’t see, kidding! If you have already watched the anime, I am sure you enjoyed it a lot. And if you didn’t then, let me tell you about it. 

The anime has 5 seasons in total and the watch time of each is 24 minutes. Not only is the anime famous, but even the manga is a great hike amid its readers. The anime is rated 8.5 by IMDb, 4.5/5 by Crunchyroll, and 7.95 by My Anime List (MAL). 

Watch the anime and get to know the story of a boy, born in a world of heroes but he is powerless. Now with the goal and aspiration to become a hero one day, he gets himself enrolled in a prestigious academy. Will he finally achieve his goal? And will all his dreams finally become true? 

Adapted from a manga the action, comedy, superpower, and school anime definitely deserve your attention. 

Now, let’s solve the mystery, as to get an answer to the identity of this mysterious man now. Shall we?

Who is Deku’s Dad?

Who is Deku’s Father?

Let’s shed some light on this man’s identity. Firstly, do you know the name of his father and what does it mean? The name of Deku’s father is Hisashi Midoriya, meaning; since I last saw you. 

His father went missing but why and how his identity got revealed, we will get back to it a little bit later. But remember folks that he is introduced as one of the villain characters of the anime. And he himself never knew his father until later is also a mystery. 

Now time to reveal the identity. 

Hisashi Midoriya is Inko’s husband and Izuku Midoriya’s Obasama, which means father. 

Through the anime, his identity was never revealed and we never actually got to know who Izuku’s father is in MHA. But later we and fans like you may have thought about All For One being his Dad after all. 

Nor was his name mentioned by his son even once nor was he shown as a memory in the flashback so fans kept on believing that he might appear later. But was it as a villain? Let’s see why?

Hisashi Midoriya’s Past

Who is Deku’s Father?

As I mentioned just now that he is Izuku’s father, before moving away he had a child with his wife, Inko. His father brought him to the doctor after that he went complete MIA for 8 long years. 

But why did he go missing? Maybe All for One was on the run in order to carry all the quirks he could. Fans hold this to be the reason for his missing from his family’s life. Maybe he wanted to return only when his son had a successor to the Tomura Shigaraki. 

So his scenario and his fight with All for Five and his facial disfigurement can be the reason for his not returning. Many suggest that Horikoshi, being a huge fan of Star Wars may be interested in a father-son reunion, later on, so he didn’t introduce him over the years in the anime.

But overall, still, he is never revealed to be the father. With the new season, we can hope for some changes. 

And also, I remember well that at one time Inko mentioned that he could breathe fire only because of Hisashi’s quirk, otherwise he is not at all mentioned throughout

Now since he is not mentioned or revealed throughout the anime at all. Everything related to him is all based on facts and guesses. His being a villain is the only sign of the fans wanting a twist, or even his connections to All For One. 

We believed that he might be introduced to us later on. For that, we only have to wait. 

There is another fact that suggests that All For One’s doctor and Deku’s doctor might be the same guy. If we look closely, they not only look similar but also carry the same mark. We also noticed that the two characters’ voice actors are also the same.

Again, I will add that these are certain hunches and nothing is based on confirmed facts.  

I hope this clears the question of whose answer you were searching for.

Watch the anime and find out about the rest.
