As noted by All Might, although the opposite Hero Course class, Class 1-A, has had the chance to hone their skills in actual combat due to them getting mixed up in multiple Villain attacks, data shows that Class 1-B has actually grown more since the beginning of the school year, as they've stayed out of trouble and thus have been able to quietly dedicate themselves to bringing out their potential. This is also evidenced at an earlier stage, as only one of Class 1-B's students failed the First Term Final Exam versus Class 1-A's five, and, during the Provisional Hero License Exam, all of 1-B's students passed whereas two of 1-A's failed.
Class 1-B does appear to be slightly behind in terms of head-on combat, strategic ability, and quick thinking. However, likely due to their experience with the aforementioned villain attacks, many more students from Class 1-A progressed to the final rounds of their first U.A. Sports Festival than 1-B, and Class 1-A took the Joint Training Battle 3-1 with one draw.
The majority of Class 1-B's students share a friendly rivalry with their parallel class, Class 1-A. However, certain students (most prominently Neito Monoma) take their rivalry to extremes out of jealousy of Class 1-A's popularity and strength and thus desire to topple them. The interactions between the students of Class 1-A and Class 1-B have been few due to the rivalry between the two classes. While Class 1-B treats Class 1-A as rivals (the latter appears to not return the rivalry), the two hero classes are on neutral terms with one another. There are a few in the class who do not outwardly bear ill will towards Class 1-A and are even friendly towards them, such as Itsuka Kendo, Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu, and Nirengeki Shoda.
Ultimately, the two classes are able to put their differences aside when necessary, (with the exception of Neito, who seems obsessed with the rivalry beyond reason) as shown during the attack by the League of Villains on the mountain training camp when some the members of Class 1-B readily accepted help from Class 1-A's Momo Yaoyorozu, receiving gas masks to protect them from Mustard's Quirk, Yosetsu Awase later risking his life to protect Momo from a Nomu.
- Class 1-B is the only first-year class of U.A. High School to have all of their peers pass the Provisional Hero License Exam, while their rival class, Class 1-A, had two students fail.
- According to Neito Monoma's survey of the U.A. School Festival, Class 1-B beat Class 1-A by two ballots.
- However, his results may be doctored since Neito's survey was "self-researched."
- Class 1-B's play "Romeo, Juliet, & the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Return of the Kings" is based off "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" by J.K. Rowling, and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" by J.R.R. Tolkien, respectively. In the play, there is a scene where Romeo, played by Neito, confronts an antagonist, played by Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu, who confesses to him that he is Romeo's father. That scene is a clear reference to the Star Wars franchise, with another character called Obi-Wan also referenced.
- Class 1-B is also the only class with confirmed foreign-exchange students.
