Eijiro Kirishima vs. Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu is a battle fought between Class 1-A's Eijiro Kirishima and Class 1-B's Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu during the U.A. Sports Festival's Fighting Tournament.


This match has been teased since Tetsutetsu and Eijiro first met during the Obstacle Race. Their Quirks are virtually the same, which Present Mic points out while introducing them both to the crowd. Itsuka cheers for Tetsutetsu while Kyoka wakes up the sleeping Minoru with her Earphone Jack.[1]

Eijiro and Tetsutetsu run at each other with their Quirks active before planting their feet and colliding fists. Eijiro punches Tetsutetsu and Tetsutetsu immediately returns the attack. They taunt each other back and forth while trading Quirk enhanced, hardened blows.[1]

The two hard-headed heroes in training continue to break through each other's defenses and strike one another until they knock each other out at the exact same time. Midnight announces that they're both down and the battle ends in a draw. She decides that the outcome will be decided following the end of the first round via an arm wrestling contest.[1]

With their quirks both active, Eijiro ultimately wins after Tetstetsu's iron arm cracks.[2]

Their performance eventually earns them an internship opportunity together with Fourth Kind.[3]
