The U.A. Sports Festival (雄英体育祭 Yūei Taikusai) is an annual event in which U.A. students from from all grades have the opportunity to showcase their abilities in different competitions in order to be scouted by pro heroes.[1]

DescriptionEdit

The festival takes place at U.A.'s Sports Festival Stadium, and is one of the biggest events in Japan.[1] Students from each grade and from every department compete among each other in their respective stages. The event begins with preliminary elimination rounds, those who pass moving up to compete in the main event.[2] Each stage has a teacher as chief referee, with the Principal usually overseeing the senior stage.[3]

Once the festival is over, pro heroes can nominate the students they were interested in, as an expression of interest in their future potential. However, these nominations can be dropped by the time the student reaches graduation, should the hero lose interest in them.[4]

First Year StageEdit

Event Organizers During the current year in the series, the first year stage had Midnight as chief referee. Present Mic and Shouta Aizawa were also present as commentators, and Cementoss oversaw the main tournament, in order to interrupt matches when necessary.[5] All Might conferred the medals to the overall winners.

Obstacle RaceEdit

  • Race Course Rankings #1
  • Race Course Rankings #2

The first preliminary event was an obstacle race between all eleven first-year classes, through a near 4 km long course around the stadium.[6] Aside from leaving the course, participants were allowed to do anything, including sabotaging their adversaries' performances.[7]

The first obstacle of the race were the villain robots from the Entrance Exam.[6] The second part was tightrope walk, and if a student were to fall, they would be eliminated. The third and last part of the course was a mine field.[8]

The first 42 students to finish the race earned the right to advance and participate in the next event, the Human Calvary Battle.

Human Cavalry BattleEdit

In the second event, participants were to form teams with a maximum of 4 people, and then form a horse configuration. The objective was to swipe other teams' headbands while protecting your own, and each person received points based on their performance in the previous competition. The value of a team's headband would be the sum of the points each person on the team had. The person who ranked last would be worth 5 points, and each above rank would be worth 5 more points than the previous one, with the exception of 1st place, whose head was worth 10 million points.[9]

The one to wear the headband must be the rider, and they were not allowed to equip it in any areas below their neck. Should the team lose their headband or crumble as a horse configuration, they would still not be eliminated. Participants are allowed to use their Quirks, but should they attack with malicious intention of harming another participant, they'd be forced out of the game.[10]

Fighting Tournament Edit

The final event is a tournament, with participants being pitted against each other in one-on-one battle. The matchups were decided by lottery. Despite being part of the team that ranked fourth in the previous event, Mashirao Ojiro and Shouda Nirengeki resigned, and so Ibara Shiozaki and Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu took their place.

The conditions for winning a match were: knocking out the opponent, rendering them unable to move or getting them to step out of bounds/surrender. The matches were as follows: (Winner in bold)
