Chapter Text

It had been a long day for the Yagi family. Yagi Inko was the darling wife of the number one hero, All Might. She disguised herself when she was out as All Might’s wife, so they could keep their family life secret, and that involved their 4-year-old son, Izuku. A natural fan of heroes, cheering them on, making sure his dad was okay when he got in from work and checking over his grandpa, the hero Gran Torino, and his uncle, the pro hero Nighteye. Nighteye and Torino were happy to start teaching Izuku about working in heroics earlier. Of course, Yagi Toshinori, Aka All Might, would allow it, but kept an eye on what they were teaching Izuku, he was just worried about his son. Eventually, the start of his training slow down, even at only 4-years-old, Izuku noticed something was up, but his father, his gramps and his uncle said nothing to up, just told him not to worry. Izuku went and spoke to his mother, Inko kissed his cheeks and smiled.


“It’s okay Sweetie, your father is just worried, he will continue your training once your quirk comes through.” Inko smiled, Izuku watched her walk away. So that was what it was all about? Izuku knew his quirk was a little late, his class wouldn’t shut up about it. Nor would his teacher, he heard her mention to another teacher the potential he didn’t have a quirk what so ever, that he was quirkless. Izuku wasn’t sure why they seemed to act like it was a bad thing. Izuku sat in front of the Tv, as his family sat in the kitchen talking. He watched the cartoons his mother put on, but he couldn’t ignore the fact they were all whispering, a shiver told him they were talking about him. Izuku remained silent, but his heart was sinking.




Izuku was taken to the doctors a few days later, Izuku was silent throughout it all, Inko looked worried.  The doctor knew of Izuku, whilst the media didn’t. All Might kept Izuku’s existence a secret. The doctor looked over the X-rays he had taken of Izuku’s feet.


“I am sorry to inform you that your son is quirkless.” He said, finally, as if he was giving the news that someone had just died. Izuku, still not understanding why being quirkless was such an issue, watched as tears sprung to his mother’s eyes.


“How is that possible?” Inko asked. “His father and I both have quirks.”


“By the age of four, a child should manifest either one of his parents’ quirks or a composite of the two.”


“However, early quirk research discovered one important finding. It has to do with the presence or absence of the extra joint in the pinky toe.” The doctor pointed to Izuku’s x-ray. “Human’s have no need for parts they don’t use, see. And those with out the joint represent the next stage of evolution. Izuku here has two joints. It’s becoming quite rare nowadays, but, he possess no quirk at all.” Izuku looked up at his mother, who was crying as if he had died, he frowned. Was being quirkless bad?




Appreantly to his family yes, Izuku stood outside the living room, listening to his parents, uncle and Gramps talking about him, as if he was asleep. Granted, he should have been.


“So, what do we do?” Gran Torino asked, his voice filled with concern.


“Would you consider him a candidate for One for All?” Nighteye asked, Izuku frowned. One for All? What was that? He wondered.


“No… I… I would rather keep him safe. We’ll, dissuade him on being a hero. I am sure we can do it.” Toshinori said


“He’ll listen, he is a good boy.” Inko nodded.


“I hope so. Without a quirk, being a hero wouldn’t be safe for him.” Torino said. Izuku quickly returned to his room, crying silently into his pillow, in the end, he cried himself to sleep.




Izuku woke up that morning and yawn, he thought back to what his parents and family said. Being Quirkless… meant he couldn’t be a hero. But… why not? He didn’t have a quirk, that just meant he had to work a little harder then everyone else. Izuku nodded to himself, that was what he was going to do. He was going to be a hero, no matter what his family said.


But it seemed his parents were already working on getting him to think against it. Izuku just listened to his parents take, trying to turn him off heroics. Izuku took a bite of his rice before speaking up to them.


“I can still be a hero. I’ll be careful.” Izuku said, his parents looked at him sadly.




Izuku hated this! His class laughed and bullied him, Punching him. Kicking, using their quirks on him. His teacher stood back, watching and laughing, or not paying attention what so ever. Izuku sat under a tree, cowering as two kids stood over him, quirks ready to punish him for dreaming. And that was when his life was changed. The new boy who had just joined their class ran at them, his own quirk active, creating small explosions. He sent the two boys running. Izuku looked up at his hero with wide eyes. His name, Bakugo Katsuki. His soft, but spikey hair a soft blonde, and ruby eyes glaring after the bullies. He then turned and looked at Izuku and held out his hand.


“Are you okay?” He asked.


“Yes, this isn’t new.” Izuku replied, accepting the hand and Bakugo pulled him up.


“You’re Yagi Deku, right?” Bakugo asked, Izuku shook his head.


“Yagi Izuku.” He said


“Oh… I read it wrong…” Katsuki frowned, blushing a little, he shook his head and looked at Izuku with a slightly harder look. “I’ll called you Izu-chan!” He said, Izuku blushed and smiled.


“Can I call you Ka-chan then?” Izuku asked, Katsuki nodded. “And… you don’t mind me being quirkless?” Katsuki looked at him.


“No… should I be?” Katsuki asked


“I don’t know, everyone acts like it’s a bad thing, everyone is mean and my parents say I can’t be a hero without a quirk.” Izuku said


“But… you could you support items.” Katsuki pointed out.


“They don’t get that. They just like to tell me no. I don’t mind being quirkless, everyone has a quirk, so not having on makes me feel special.” Izuku smiled, Katsuki smiled too.


“So, want to be heroes together?” Katsuki asked, Izuku nodded.


“Yep! We can be a team!” Izuku said excitedly, their teacher called them inside, Izuku and Katsuki walked together.


“Great! Oh, do you like pokemon? My Mom got me the new game!” Katsuki said proudly.


“I watch it, I haven’t really played the game before.” Izuku admitted. Katsuki looked at him as if he had just kicked a puppy.


“Come on then! I have to show you!” Katsuki took his hand and pulled him inside. The teacher was surprised at how happy the boys looked together.

Izuku and Katsuki sat on the bench in the playground, Katsuki leaning on Izuku’s shoulder, watching Izuku play his pokemon game.


“Oh, catch that one, that one it cool!” Katsuki said


“Right!” Izuku nodded and proceed to battle and captured it.


“Cyndaquil is my favourite pokemon. Do you have one?”  Katsuki asked. Izuku hummed.


“The first grass start pokemon.” Izuku replied.


“Ah, Bulbasaur. He’s cool, not fair how no one picks him.” Katsuki said


“He’s cute.” Izuku smiled.


“I have a spare game where you can get Bulbasaur…. You can play it as your own game if you want.” Katsuki offered, Izuku looked at him with wide eyes.


“Is that really okay?” Izuku asked


“Yeah, I have two of them, they are different version. I mostly play the Pikachu one, so you can have Eevee.” Katsuki smiled happily. Izuku blushed and looked back at the game. They didn’t even notice their parents approaching.



Yagi Inko had been thrilled when she found out her friend Masaru, along with his wife and son, had moved in a few blocks away from them. Even more so when she found out they had sent their son to Izuku’s day care. They had bumped into each other on the way to pick them up, Mitsuki and Inko quickly building a friendship. They found their sons sitting together when they got to the day-care, Katsuki was teaching Izuku how to battle.


“So… each type has a weakness, and if a pokemon uses a move that matches it’s typing, it does more…” Izuku mumbled.


“Yes, unless it is a move type that has no effect against the opponent, Like Normal moves don’t affect Ghosts or dragon moves on fairy types.” Katsuki explain.


“Oho… so… Tortonator… I could use… “ Izuku mumbled, pressing a few buttons. Katsuki nodding as his choices. Izuku beamed “I did it!”


“You were great!” Katsuki praised. Izuku blushed happily.


“Izuku!” Inko called, he looked over.


“Katsuki!” Mitsuki yelled, Katsuki huffed. Izuku closed the DS, and Katsuki took his hand as they ran over, Katsuki glared up at his mother.


“This is Izu-chan and he is my best-best friend!” He announced. Izuku looked at him with wide eyes.


“Really?” Izuku asked


“Of course!” Katsuki nodded “Can he come and play tonight?”


“I am afraid not tonight, I am sure we can arrange a day for you two to play after school.” Inko said calmly.


“Tomorrow?” Izuku asked “You and Papa said I can’t train anymore, and I trained on tomorrow’s so… can we play tomorrow?” Katsuki gave Izuku a concerned look, and Mitsuki glanced at Inko curiously. Inko just sighed.


“We’ll ask you father when he gets home.” Inko said, Izuku beamed


“Yay.” Izuku said happily, they got to walk the Bakugo’s to their home, Izuku and Katsuki happily discussing pokemon, or at least, their mother’s thought they were.


“They stopped you training… to stop you being a hero?” Katsuki said quietly. Izuku nodded.


“But, you are training too right? We could say we are playing…” Izuku began, Katsuki smirked


“You are a genius, yeah, we can do that!” Katsuki nodded. Izuku smiled, the boys laughed happily.



Mitsuki wouldn’t lie, she was concerned, Inko had mentioned Izuku’s quirklessness, his wise to be a hero, and the fact they didn’t like the idea of him being one. Mitsuki wasn’t blind, she could tell her new friends was looking down at her son for being quirkless. Strictly speaking, the only thing keeping him from being a hero was his parents. Mitsuki watched as Izuku and Katsuki spoke ahead, she could see the mischievous smile her son had, and she began to wonder… if the young Yagi boy had seen this and had a plan of his own. Either way, Mitsuki knew she had to step in.


“You know… if you would like, I could just pick Izuku up with Katsuki after school.” Mitsuki offered with a smile. “It would be great if the boys could hang out and play, and it would probably take his mind of being a hero if we try and distance him from the idea. I can tell Katsuki not to mention heroes and all that.” Inko looked at her thoughtfully.


“Do you think it could work?” She asked after a moment.


“Most definitely.” Mitsuki nodded.


“Then, I guess that would be the best option… thank you for understanding.” Inko smiled.


“We’re mother’s, we have to protect our babies.” Mitsuki beamed.



The Yagi’s continued their way home, as the Bakugo’s entered their home, Masaru was working in the kitchen. Mitsuki sighed as she sat down, Katsuki actually stopped in his tracks, watching her.


“Katsuki, please come here.” She said, worriedly, Katsuki approached her. “I need you to promise me something.”


“What is it?” He asked


“We are going to help Izuku-kun be a hero, but we can not let his parents know.” Mitsuki said. “We can’t let someone dictate someone’s dreams because they are quirkless.”


“Wait… so, did you hear us?” Katsuki frowned.


“No, but I saw that look in your eye that you were planning something. What was Izuku’s plan?” Mitsuki smiled.


“That we could play together every day, but instead train together, but tell everyone we are just playing.” Katsuki said


“That is the idea we will role with, we need to speak to Izuku-kun tomorrow. We need to make sure his parents suspect nothing. So, we need him on board with this.” Mitsuki said


“Right! So, Izu-kun and I can be the best hero team! Oh, yeah, Mom can I give Izu-kun my Let’s go Eevee? He doesn’t have a pokemon game and because I have Let’s go Pikachu, I thought he’d like the Eevee one.” Katsuki asked


“Our Katsuki willing to give away a game.” Masaru smiled playfully. “This Izuku must be really special.”


“He’s quirkless and doesn’t care about my quirk, and wants to be a hero despite people being mean… He’s so cool!” Katsuki beamed, a small blush on his cheeks. Mitsuki smiled softly, looking at Masaru.


“I think Izuku would like to have that game, if you are sure about it.” Masaru nodded, Katsuki cheered and ran upstairs, likely to try and find it. “So… Inko’s son is quirkless?” He asked his wife




“They say he can’t be a hero?”




“And we’re going to help him?”




“… Should I prepare to help design their Hero costumes?” Masaru smiled, Mitsuki looked at him happily.


“Probably… we can’t let Inko or her husband destroy his dream Masaru… they started his training  and stopped it as soon as they found out…” Mitsuki frowned.


“Don’t worry. We won’t.” Masaru promised.

Izuku dug his switch out of it’s box, his father had brought it for him, but had forgot to get games, so Izuku had had no use in it. But with Katsuki giving him a game, he finally could. He put it in his bag and zipped it up. He got to go to Katsuki’s house today too, so he was super excited. Izuku put his bag on and headed down stairs, he heard his parents stop whispering when he entered and sat at the table to eat his breakfast, despite the happy greeting he gave them, Inko and Toshi just gave their son a sad smile, Izuku remained silent after, and he didn’t even say good bye to Toshi as he left with his mom. Izuku didn’t think he would want a goodbye, or his usual hug.


“Izuku, are you okay?” Inko asked, as they headed towards the Bakugo’s.


“Yep!” He nodded.


“You didn’t say goodbye to your father, and you usually give him a big hug too.” Inko said


“You and Papa didn’t seem happy when I said morning, so I assumed you didn’t want a good bye either.” Izuku replied, the answer was simple. Inko was a little shocked at his answer, but said nothing. Mitsuki was waiting outside with Katsuki as they approached. “Ka-chan! Good Morning!” Izuku greeted.


“Morning Izu-chan!” Katsuki beamed, running over and hugging him.


“I have my switch with me!” Izuku told him, Katsuki beamed and pulled the Let’s Go Eevee out of his bag.


“And you can have this, I don’t play it!” Katsuki smiled, Izuku accepted “And now I can teach you how to play and we can trade and battle with each other!”


“We will be able to battle each other?” Izuku gasped.


“Yep, but you need to train to be the best!” Katsuki nodded.


“Ka-chan! You’ll be able to help me train all my pokemon. Let’s go!” Izuku took his hand and the two boys walked ahead, Inko was shocked.


“Katsuki was sure he wanted to give Izuku the game, like he said, he never played it.” Mitsuki smiled.


“Are you sure…” Inko began


“It’s your first game?” Katsuki gasped loudly from up ahead.


“Yep, my dad forgot to get me a game with it.” Izuku replied, Inko smiled sheepishly at Mitsuki as the blond woman gave her a confused look.


“He is very busy with work and brought it on the way home, forgetting to buy a game to go with it.” Inko explained. Izuku frowned as he heard his mother’s reply.


“How long have you had the switch?” Katsuki asked quietly


“Almost a year.” Izuku replied quietly. Katsuki frowned.



Class was more fun for Izuku that day, comparing to any day before or after learning he was quirkless. Katsuki was at his side the whole day, the two of them doing everything together. And It was great. And when the day was over, Izuku was allowed to go to Katsuki’s, he was so excited. Izuku and Katsuki held hands as they walked home in front of Mitsuki as they were happily talking about their pokemon. Mitsuki watched them with a soft smile.



“This is one is so cute!” Izuku cooed, looking at the Bulbasaur on his screen. Katsuki had taught him chain captures, increasing the chance of running into Rare pokemon.


“Go on, catch it!” Katsuki told him, peeking over from his own game. Izuku poked his tongue out as he threw a poke ball.


“I got it!” Izuku gasped happily. “I’mma call him… Forest.” Izuku smiled.


“You still going to train to be a hero, Izuku-kun?” Mitsuki smiled at the boy, Izuku froze and looked a little scared.


“Yeah… though Mama, says I can’t be…” he looked down, Mitsuki sighed, knowing he was expecting her to agree with them.


“Well, How about you and Katsuki train here, together? But, you can’t tell your mother, if she found out she wouldn’t let you come around again.” Mitsuki said “But… it also means, when I am around her I will just agree with what she says, If I show her I agree with her choices, she will trust me more…”


“And she will know that I can keep coming over to play and train instead…” Izuku smiled. “You will really help me?”


“Of course, I think you will be a good hero, and I think Katsuki could do with a friend to be a hero at his side.” Mitsuki smiled and ruffled his hair, Izuku giggled happily. “So, Masaru has a surprise for you two, he’s in his work office, why don’t you go and see what it is?” She smiled, Katsuki saved his game and put it on the side, Izuku quickly copied. He took Katsuki’s hand, who lead him to Masaru’s office, she smiled, she knew they were going to love his plan.


“Dad! Mom said you have something for us!” Katsuki said loudly, Masaru glanced up from his work, he smiled and beckoned them closer.


“I know you both want to be Heroes, and there is something you can consider now.” He told them.


“What’s that?” Izuku asked curiously.


“Costumes.” Masaru smiled. “I have a few sheets of paper that I use for when I am designing clothes.” He handed the two boys one page each. Katsuki beamed excitedly at the blank sheet, Izuku frowned at him.


“I don’t know what kind of costume I want…” Izuku muttered quietly.


“What about our favourite Pokemon?” Katsuki asked “Like, we can do a design based on them! Make special attacks made after moves!” Izuku giggled happily. “You can be Bulbasaur, and I’ll be Cyndaquil, and as we get bigger we can change it to the evolution forms!”


“I like that Idea! Let’s do that Kacchan!” Izuku said, Katsuki nodded.


“Dad, we’re going to do it in my room!” Katsuki took Izuku’s hand again.


“Come and show me when you’re done boys.” Masaru said, getting an okay from them as they left. He smiled, they were quite the pair.
