My Hero Academia Ultra Analysis book gives 6/6 S+ speed only to All Might and All for One. Even so, characters like Gran Torino and Nomu USJ who could rival them arent listed in the Ultra Analysis book. Gran Torino in other hand, it's given 6/5 in the Ultra Archive book, just like All Might, but in the anime it seems to be implied All Might is faster than him in the battle with All for One. And for the Nomu USJ there is no data in his speed whatsoever, the only thing we know about his speed is in the battle with All Might.

I can't remember any important character who could rival their speed not listed either in the Ultra Analysis or Ultra Archive books.

Is there any more conclusive details about this? Who is the fastest character in My Hero Academia?

My guess is that by this time, it's Keigo Takami aka Hawks. His speed is 6/6S acording to the databook and even the other heroes acknowledge him as being the fastest.

This is only considering travel speed, not fast as in reaction time, perception, etc.


In what capacity are you asking “fastest” in its literal interpretation in pure speed: All Might, Endeavor, Hawks, Izuku Midoriya, and Tenya Iida are the fastest combatants.

However, reaction time/reaction speed is another story. Of course Midoriya & All Might are still on top due to the sheer multiplier that is One For All. But, Eraser, Shoto Todoroki, Katsuki Bakugo, Hawks, and Stain are all upper-tier characters with extreme reactions times as well.

The fastest hero in outright speed is the Winged Hero: Hawks

With Midoriya (100%) and All Might the #1 Hero coming in a close second place:

Finally, Endeavor using Flashfire is going to be just below All Might in third place behind One For All:

Now, Reaction time is another gamble but based on the scenarios we’ve seen: All Might is going to be on top due to him reacting in an instant when Nomu speed-blitzed Bakugo during the USJ attack.

Second place would likely go to Hawks due to his quirk amplifying his sense to an extreme level especially with his hypersensitive wings.

Next, Eraser, him dodging Dabi’s attack in the time it took for Dabi to ignite his flames Eraser had activated his quirk and jumped out of the blast radius.

After Aizawa, we’re looking at mainly students on the top of this list with either Mirio Togata or Stain; Stain due to his capabilities in predicting his opponents moves and being able to deduce Midoriya’s plan when they fought in the alley.


Some comments seem to think All Might is faster, he is capable of moving 5 kilometers in 30 seconds during the Hideout Raid Arc, which translates to 600 km/hr where as Hawks moved in the blink of an eye from the top of a skyscraper to Endeavor’s battle in 0.1–0.3 seconds. Assuming it’s a decent sized skyscraper in say the Tokyo prefecture: I’ll assume it’s only 20 stories (quite low all things considered) assuming 12 feet or so/floor we have 240 feet or 80 yards.

80 yards in 0.3 seconds translates to 878 Kilometers/Hour. That is over 200 km/hour faster than All Might all the while Hawks believes he could’ve easily gone faster to Endeavor’s aid.

That being said All For One also said that All Might has slowed since their first confrontation. Giving All Might SOME leeway they would be close around 850 km/hour regularly.

In conclusion Hawks is the fastest hero in My Hero Academia by a landslide. All Might was praised for his absurd strength, whereas Hawks is known for his S-class speed in the data books. Don’t doubt my boy Hawks.


I disagree with GotTheJob's answer. It's comparing a weakened All Might to Hawks in his prime.

Yes, weakened AM took 30 seconds after the Nomus appeared, but you're forgetting he dispatched 3 Nomus, then spoke to Endeavor for like 15 seconds and then went to AFO, so weakened AM travelled 3 miles in like 8 to 12 seconds.

Prime All Might, after 72 hours of heroic work and semi-tired, travelled 2600 miles, took down about 30 juiced-up villains, saved children from an accident inside a bus, stopped some buildings from collapsing, and blew ice breath to help fire fighters, all in 3 seconds. That's significantly faster than Hawks. He's faster than light.

This is in Vigilantes before his fight with AFO.
