The Villain Bots are combat testing robots used by U.A. High School that are generally found in the U.A. Entrance Exams and in the U.A. Sports Festival.


The Villain Bots are used to create combat simulations so that the students of U.A. High School will have a general idea of what fighting a villain is like.

Despite this, the Bots themselves are not very threatening and can be beaten in several ways. The 0-point Bots, however, are noticeably bigger and more dangerous than the other types. Arena Traps are traps scattered across the battlefield to trap people and weed out victims from getting high scores.

For the U.A. Entrance Exam, students had a few ways that allowed them to defeat the robots, either destroying or immobilizing them. The Villain Bots that were not destroyed during the entrance exam are later used as enemies in the obstacle course during the U.A. Sports Festival.

A rogue rampaging Executor appears in My Hero Academia Vigilantes. It is taken down by All Might.[1]
