Heroes (ヒーロー Hīrō?) are individuals who use their Quirks to protect civilians from villains, natural disasters, or any other kind of harm. Those who take heroism as a profession are referred to as Pro Heroes (プロヒーロー Puro Hīrō?).
Heroes started appearing when the phenomenon occurred and the general populace acquired Quirks. Depending on their performance, heroes have the potential to receive government pay, along with fame and glory.
The first heroes to appear during the chaos caused by the appearance of Quirks were Vigilantes, as the Pro Hero system had not yet been implemented. The Pro Hero System was first put into place on Rhode Island in America under the "Rhode Island New State Statute", 189 Vigilantes were affected by this statute, with only 7 being accepted as official heroes.
Biannually, all heroes and hero teams are ranked by an event called the Japanese Hero Billboard Charts. The rating factors in resolved incidents, contributions to society and public approval. All Might used to be the No. 1 Hero until his retirement, after which Endeavor assumed the No. 1 spot.
A Hero Name is a name a Pro Hero chooses to identify themselves. While Heroes in training may choose tentative names in high school, Pro Heroes are often known by the name they first pick.
Hero Names are considered very important to a professional career, as they can bring a person closer to the image they may want to cement, and are also able to reflect their true character. A person may also choose to use the same name or a very similar one to an already well-known Hero that is no longer active; however, this comes with the responsibility and pressure to uphold the name's legacy.
Heroes can either work alone or in a team depending on their needs. The Wild, Wild Pussycats are a team put together for mountain rescue and actually stayed together to create a hero agency. Most heroes work alone starting a hero agency somewhere but are teamed occasionally in the field on various missions like the raid on the warehouse or the battle against All For One.
