"So I'm going to be a hero. I'll make that money... So that my mom and dad can have easier lives!"

Ochaco Uraraka to Izuku and Tenya in "That's the Idea, Ochaco"

Ochaco Uraraka (麗日お茶子 Uraraka Ochako?) is a student of U.A.'s Class 1-A and is one of the protagonists of My Hero Academia.


Chapter 22

Ochaco's manga profile.

Ochaco has shoulder-length brown hair and big round brown eyes. She sports 2 long locks of hair beside her face and a short bob at the back. She has little pads on the top of each of her fingers, similar to the pads on an animal's paws, which are used to activate her Quirk.

Her costume consists of a skin-tight suit with detached sleeves, knee-high boots, belt, helmet, collar, and thick, round bracers with handles attached to them. The accessories are designed to press her acupuncture points in an attempt to reduce her Quirk's drawback. The skin tightness of her costume on the other hand is apparently an error due to her not being specific in her design request.[1]


Ochako Almost Laughing

Ochaco trying not to laugh.

Ochaco is an outgoing, lively person who thinks about everything positively. She is nice and friendly to those she meets, and will also try to help or defend anyone that previously came to her aid. She often becomes amused at certain personality traits and quirks others may exhibit, sometimes to the point of bursting into laughter, which she tries to suppress to some extent. Because of her humble background, Ochaco easily gets excited or surprised over little things and may even lose her composure when faced with actual luxury, to the point of nearly fainting. Similar to Izuku Midoriya, her reactions tend to be exaggerated and humorous.

Ochako's game face

Ochaco's unusual fierce demeanor.

Despite those oddities, there are times where Ochaco unusually takes on an extremely determined, focused and somewhat intimidating attitude when the situation calls for it, which can come as a surprise to those who are used to her nice and cheerful side. This side of her also tends to appear during combat situations, where she also demonstrates a surprisingly strategic mind, although she is not above taking more impulsive, reckless decisions. She also doesn't like to be underestimated.

When it comes to her chosen path as a hero, Ochaco is unwavering, even in the face of overwhelming force. Her parents are her main driving force into becoming a professional hero, as she desires above all else to give them a comfortable life. Ochaco is also quite honest about her goals, deciding not to hide her pursuit of heroism being primarily for money, despite her embarrassment over admitting so. She does this with pride, knowing that it is for her parents' benefit.

In terms of heroism, Ochaco has shown a preference towards rescuing efforts, being fan of Thirteen and his expertise in the area. However, she is also aware of her own physical limitations, choosing the more combat-oriented hero Gunhead for internship in order to learn martial arts and increase her fighting repertoire.

Quirk and Abilities

Zero Gravity (無重力 (ゼログラビティ) Zero Gurabiti?): Ochaco's Quirk gives her the power to manipulate gravity, such as making objects weightless or making objects float upon touching them. With this Quirk, she is also able to fly, though this ability is limited. A drawback to this Quirk that if it is used too much (around three tons) or if she makes herself float, she will suffer from nausea and possibly vomit as a result.

  • Skill Release (解除 Kaijo?): Ochaco presses her finger tips together and makes whatever she has touched stop floating. This move was first used when she saved Izuku Midoriya from falling to death during the entrance exam.
  • Home Run Comet (彗星ホームラン Suisei Hōmuran?): After applying her Quirk's power of making objects weightless to some rubble and a pillar, Ochaco then uses the pillar to hit the rubble at her enemy. This move was first used to distract Tenya Iida during the Battle Trial.

Hand-to-Hand Combat: While Ochaco was working with Gunhead, he taught her about martial arts. Because of this, she now knows many forms of grappling, take downs and throws. Ochaco is skilled in martial arts as she can easily dispatch an opponent that tries to stab her or to incapacitate them as shown with Himiko.

Ochaco's stats, according to the Official Character Book


Hero Costume: All aspects of Ochaco's Hero Costume was made for the sole purpose of helping minimize the negative affects of her Quirk.

  • Uraraka Helmet: This equipment reduces stimulation of the semicircular canals located inside each ear.
  • Uraraka Wrists: This equipment's interior contains a device that clamps down and releases like a blood pressure gauge, stimulating the pressure points around the wrist area that suppress nausea.
  • Uraraka Neck: This equipment stimulates the pressure points around the neck area, thereby reducing headaches and the like.
  • Ochachaka Leg: This equipment's design was to break her fall from elevation. The sole at her toes is equipped with a shock absorbing cushion and her heel contains a reinforced spring, also to soften the shock.



Izuku Midoriya

Out of the class, she seems to be the closest with Izuku and she clearly respects and has faith in his judgment and decisions. On the other hand, Izuku trusts Ochaco and enjoys being around with her; Izuku was sad to see Ochaco lose to Katsuki and defended her from Katsuki's accusations. Ochaco and Izuku's friendship with each other began mainly after she was saved by Izuku during the Entrance Exam and from then on, they have interacted regularly, becoming best friends. She has no idea that Izuku has a crush on her, but at the same time, there have been many subtle hints that Ochaco may also have a crush on him as well, such as how she gets jealous when Mei talks to Izuku too much. During the End of Term Test, Yuuga asked Ochaco if she loves Izuku, to which she replied by blushing and holding her face with complete embarrassment, showing that she does indeed have a crush on Izuku. However, due to her insecurities about her feelings, she would usually run away whenever she is alone with Izuku or completely deny it in an over exaggerated way. After the Hero License Exam Arc, Ochaco has decided to focus on becoming a Hero for her sake and so that her love for Izuku doesn't interfere between them.

Tenya Iida

Since they're both friends with Izuku, they became friends with each other too. They surprisingly get along together very well and often end up in situations together. They always have each other's backs during battles.

Mei Hatsume

Ochaco has a somewhat rocky relationship with Mei, due to her direct nature. During her interactions with Mei, she Izuku was always present as well and Mei often went awfully close to Izuku, much to Ochaco's dismay. She was slightly jealous when Izuku praised Mei's "super cute babies". During their second encounter, Mei landed right ontop of Izuku and shortly after, Mei felt Izuku's body and noted that it's suprisingly muscular. All of that made Ochaco visibly uncomfortable but she managed to remain polite and civil.

Himiko Toga

Ochaco and Himiko are enemies. During their encounter, Himiko tried to attack Ochaco and Tsuyu with a knife. Himiko gleefully called them her friends, which left Ochaco slightly disturbed. However Himiko managed to hit a soft spot when she realized that Ochaco had a crush on someone.


  • Her name comes from ウラビティ (uravity), グラビティ (gravity) without the "g", making Ura (麗, urara), bi (日, that can also be read as ka), tea (茶, read as cha).
  • Her name Uraraka means "bright, beautiful", and Ochako "tea child".
  • She is student No. 5 in Class 1-A.
  • She ranked 3rd during the Entrance Exam and 10th during Aizawa's Quirk Apprehension Test.
  • Her rankings in the Popularity Polls are as follows:
    • She ranked 4th in the First Popularity Poll.
    • She ranked 10th in the Second Popularity Poll.
  • She loves Japanese food and mochi and likes the starry sky.
  • While her name was spelled as Ochako in a character illustration on the official manga website, it is spelled as Ochaco on both the anime website and PVs.
  • She ranks 13th in Class 1-A's Grades.[2]
  • Ochaco ranked in the Top 16 of the U.A. Sports Festival First-Year Stage.
