Hisashi Midoriya ( (みどり) () (ひさし) Midoriya Hisashi?) is Izuku Midoriya's father and the husband of Inko Midoriya.


At some point in his life, Hisashi married Inko, who eventually gave birth to their son, Izuku. He took a work post abroad.[1]

His current status is unknown.



Fire Breath (火休み Hi Yasumi?): Hisashi's Quirk allows him to breathe fire.[2]


  • His name, Hisashi, roughly means "a long time ago". It is a reference to the sentence hisashiburi (久しぶり?), which means "it has been a while (since I last saw you)", hinting at his absence in the story.
    • It is also the same kanji as the "Ku" in Izuku's name.
