Template:Character Shouto Todoroki (轟焦凍 Todoroki Shōto?) is a student at U.A. training to become a Pro Hero. He got into U.A. through official recommendations. He is one of the protagonists of Boku no Hero Academia.
Shouto has short, bicolored hair; the right side is white, the left side is red. He has a burn over his left eye. He possesses heterochromia which causes his left eye to be green but his right eye to be black.
In his initial Hero Costume, Shouto wears a simple white shirt, white pants, white boots, and gold-colored combat vest. He also has ice covering his left torso and arm.
In his new Hero Costume, Shouto wears a dark blue jacket, dark blue pants, a silver-colored combat vest, and white boots. He also wears a silver-colored belt with metal capsules.
Shouto has a cold, aloof personality which stems from his harsh upbringing. He is quite seasoned in battle, being able to stay calm and composed even while battling real villains. Though brutal in battle, he is well grounded on the ethics of heroism, only wishing to subdue his frozen opponents as opposed to killing them through prolonging their frozen states. After the events of the Sports Festival, Shouto still has a distant attitude but has become noticeably more sociable and has shown to be smiling sometimes as well as gaining a sense of humor.
Shouto had a deep loathing for his fire power, as it symbolized his father's wickedness towards him and his mother as well as what he was born for: a tool to surpass All Might, a fate that he detests. As such, Shouto decided to rely only on his ice power and never to use his fire power in combat, going so far as to cover his left torso and arm with ice in his Hero Costume to symbolize his rebellion against his father and his fate.
During his battle with Izuku in the Sports Festival, Izuku's speech made the memory of his mother's supportive words resurface, and for the first time he used his fire power in combat. After the battle, Shouto had mixed feelings about using his left side. However, after reconciling with his mother, Shouto eventually came to terms with using his fire power.
Quirk and Abilities
Half-Cold Half-Hot (半冷半燃 Hanrei Hannen?): Shouto's Quirk gives the right side of his body the power to generate ice and his left side to generate fire. It also allows him to use his fire and ice to raise or lower his body temperature. The drawback to his Quirk arises from his need to maintain his own body temperature: excessive use of his ice power causes Shouto to suffer from frostbite and his attacks, as a result, become weaker. However, this drawback can be countered with his fire power, by using it to increase his body temperature. The drawback to prolonged use of his fire side has yet to be revealed. While he is capable of using these two abilities simutaniously, he has said that he isn't used to doing this, and still needs practice in dual weilding his Quirk.
- Giant Ice Wall (大氷壁 Daihyōheki?): Shouto creates a humongous ice glacier. This move is first used in his battle against Hanta Sero in the Sports Festival, but is unnamed until the End of Term Test. A variation of this move, slightly smaller in size, is shown in his battle against Katsuki Bakugou.
Overall Abilities: Shouto is stated to be the strongest person in Class 1-A. He is able to defeat all the villains with ease at the Landslide Zone by himself without breaking a sweat and provides assistance to All Might by helping him break free of Noumu's clutches. He is also able to hold off Chizome Akaguro, a powerful villain, for a brief amount of time; Chizome himself acknowledges Shouto's prowess.
Enhanced Durability: Shouto has proven himself to be quite resilient, being able to withstand multiple of Izuku Midoriya's attacks, including a direct, One For All-enhanced punch to the stomach, without sustaining major injuries.
Enhanced Endurance: Shouto has shown to be able to endure combat even while injured, such as in his battle with Chizome, where he is able to continue fighting and supporting his allies despite suffering from multiple bleeding injuries on his arm and face, and still to drag the villain's unconscious body once the battle is over.
Enhanced Agility: Shouto is fast and agile and has quick reflexes, being able to create ice walls in a split second in order to prevent himself form getting thrown out of the ring during his battles with Izuku and Katsuki during the Sports Festival. He is also able to partially dodge a knife thrown at his face and several other attacks by Chizome, a notably agile opponent.
Hero Costume: Shouto's second Hero Costume is designed to optimize the use of both his fire and ice sides in combat, as well as diminish the drawbacks of his Quirk as much as possible.
- Shouto's Jacket: It is made of a special fiber which is capable of withstanding heat. There is a special device near the neck that senses Shouto's body temperature, automatically cooling down or heating up accordingly. It is also used for supporting the vest.
- Shouto's Combat Vest: It is capable of sensing Shouto's body temperature and automatically cools down or heats up accordingly. In his first costume, it could only heat up.

- (To Izuku Midoriya) "Never using my bastard of a father's Quirk... No.. By rising to the top without using it... I'll have denied him everything."
- (To Enji Todoroki) "I haven't put aside anything. As if I could be turned that easily. It's just... In that moment, that instant... I forgot all about you. Whether that's good, bad, or something in between... That's something I'll have to think about."
- (To himself, in regards to Tenya Iida) "Ever since your brother got taken down... I've had my eye on you. Because all that building resentment was written on your face. I know that when I see it. And I know just how much grudges like that... can cloud a person's vision."
- (To Tenya Iida) "If you wanna stop this, then stand up! Because I've just got one thing to say to you! Never forget who you want to become!"
