4 fighters that Mezo Shoji can beat (and 4 he can’t)

With his heightened senses and quick reflexes, Mezo Shoji is a reliable fighter in My Hero Academia.

The ability to grow extra arms can be very useful when dealing multiple punches. Of course, Shoji has a lot more versatility with his Mutated oddity. Dupli-Arms also lets him replicate other body parts at the tip of his tentacles. This makes him more aware of his surroundings in My Hero Academia.

Shoji isn’t the strongest member of Class 1-A, but he isn’t the weakest either. This one underrated fighter can surprise a lot of people in My Hero Academia.

Note: This article reflects the writer’s personal opinion.

Shoji can definitely win against the following My Hero Academia characters

4) Toru Hagakure

Hagakure isn’t much of a fighter, but she can perform stealth attacks by becoming invisible. That said, her punches aren’t particularly powerful and she lacks a constitutional defense in My Hero Academia. Shoji should be able to beat her with one blow.

The mutant may be able to gain multiple eyes and ears to track her movements. Even if Hagakure were to use blinding light against Shoji, he could still sprout a pair of eyes as if nothing happened.

3) Rikido Sato

Sato is a physically strong warrior with a clear muscle structure. He can make himself even more powerful with the Sugar Rush Quirk, provided he ingests a certain amount of sugar My Hero Academia.

However, unlike Shoji and his ability to sprout multiple limbs, Sato doesn’t have much else for him. What also doesn’t help is that his Quirk is a terrible disadvantage of cognitive impairment. Shoji just has to survive Sato with his stamina and stamina.

2) Togaru Kamakiri

Kamakiri has a very precise cutting power with his Razor Sharp Quirk. Shoji should be very careful around him.

That said, he can regenerate sprouted limbs with his Dupli-Arms Quirk, meaning an injured Shoji can still put up a good fight. He just needs to outwit Kamakiri and land his Ocotoblow great move. Shoji certainly has enough power and speed to overwhelm the Class 1-B student.

1) Kosei Tsuburaba

Tsuburaba can be very annoying to deal with My Hero Academia. He can catch his targets through his Solid Air Quirk. Unfortunately for him, a force strong enough is all it takes to tear down his prison walls. Tsuburaba is also physically weak and would not last long in a direct confrontation.

Shoji might be the youngest student in Class 1-A, but his muscular build is second only to Rikido Sato. He can certainly escape Tsuburaba’s aerial techniques. Shoji also has natural reflexes and quick movements. He could certainly beat Tsuburaba with a surprise counterattack.

In comparison, Shoji wouldn’t fare well against the following: My Hero Academia characters

4) Pony Tsunotori

Technically, this fight would most likely end in a draw. My Hero Academia fans have already seen this matchup in the third round of the Joint training archery bow.

Pony still deserves a place on this list, though, as Shoji can’t quite knock her out one-on-one. He doesn’t have the means to get within her reach, which is very problematic for him.

Shoji’s biggest problem is that he has no projectiles My Hero Academia. Pony can simply use the Horn Cannon Quirk to stay in the air. She can’t beat him, but neither can he, as long as she keeps running.

3) Jurota Shishida

Both fighters are known for their keen senses and physically imposing forms. However, based on their performance in the Joint Training arc, it is clear that Shishida is slightly faster and stronger than Shoji.

Shishida could handle several Class 1-A students on his own and would not sustain any serious injuries. He could even withstand a direct shock from Denki Kaminari. Shoji has yet to demonstrate similar feats in My Hero Academia. Logically, Shishida should have this in the bag.

2) Eijiro Kirishima

With the ability to harden itself into erratic shapes, Kirishima has the best offense and defense for this particular battle.

Shoji has no way of attacking him other than throwing unprotected punches. Worst case scenario, he would really cut himself to pieces My Hero Academia. Kirishima could endure Kendo Rappa, meaning Shoji won’t be much of a challenge by comparison.

1) Fumikage Tokoyami

Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo and Shoto Todoroki are undoubtedly the strongest freshmen in the UA. There is quite a big gap between them and the rest of Class 1-A. However, Tokoyami may not be that far behind them with his monstrous Dark Shadow Quirk.

Tokoyami gains a wide variety of special abilities. He can protect himself with a defensive wall, stay in the air with his familiar shadow and trap his opponents in complete darkness. Shoji doesn’t have that many approaches in My Hero Academiawhich greatly limits his combat potential here.
