"We're all still in shock over Bakugo's kidnapping... so we have to think about this calmly. It doesn't matter how righteous our feelings are. If we start another fight... if we break the law... then we're no better than the villains!"

Tsuyu Asui to her classmates about Katsuki Bakugo's kidnapping in "From Iida to Midoriya"

Tsuyu Asui ( () (すい) () () Asui Tsuyu?), also known as the Rainy Season Hero: Froppy, is a major supporting character and a student at U.A. High School training to become a Pro Hero.

Appearance

Tsuyu is a short girl with a frog-like appearance. She has long, dark sea-green hair which she ties in a bow on her back. She has very wide eyes with pure black irises and distinctive lower eyelashes. Like a frog, she has a wide mouth.

Her Hero costume is a green and black skintight suit with yellow linings which imitate a frog's skin markings. She also wears goggles, gloves, and boots with a frog-like design. Despite her boots being shaped like frog feet, she does have ten toes. Her winter Hero Costume stays largely the same, with a few differences. Her goggles are now fitted with a visor, and underneath her neck is a large ring with two bubble-shaped objects, most likely for regulating her body temperature. Her suit also has different markings in the chest area.

Personality

Tsuyu is a straightforward and laid-back individual who always says what's on her mind and what she thinks about others. Tsuyu prefers to be called "Tsu", but only by people she views as friends.[1] She commonly refers to everyone with the honorific "-chan", save for teachers and other authority figures.

Tsuyu worries about All Might

Tsuyu has proven to be very observant about others, as she was the first to note the similarities between Izuku Midoriya and All Might's Quirks. Tsuyu is noticeably calm and collected, being able to stay levelheaded in stressful situations. Smart and studious, Tsuyu is known for having great judgment and is rarely moved by emotion. Because of this, Recovery Girl describes her as a "perfect pillar of emotional support" capable of leading others.[2] However, even Tsuyu has limits when it comes to staying composed, having broken down in despair or heartbreak a few times. Her words may also come off as unintentionally harsh thanks to her blunt honesty, resulting in her feeling guilty and regretful when she speaks out against her friends.

Tsuyu Going Hmm

Tsuyu's finger tic.

Her usual expression consists of a vacant stare, which makes reading her thoughts and emotions difficult for those around her, which sometimes results in them being creeped out. Tsuyu has a habit of tipping her finger against her mouth while speaking, pondering or showing curiosity. She also says "ribbit", emulating a frog's croaking, as a replacement for many of her single word replies.

Abilities

Keen Intellect: Tsuyu has proven to be very intelligent as seen in Unforeseen Simulation Joint Arc where she noticed similarities of Izuku and All Might's quirk. She also deduced from the League of Villains' plan to kill All Might that may have a way to do so, which was confirmed in the form of Nomu. Tsuyu also scored sixth in the mid-terms, showing her skill in academics.[3]

Quirk

Frog ( Kaeru?): Tsuyu's Quirk allows her to do anything a frog can do such as: hopping long distances; jumping; sticking to walls extending her tongue, which can lift an entire person's body to a maximum of 20 meters; ejecting/washing her stomach and secreting toxic sticky liquid, and camouflage. However, when she is in cold environments for too long, she is unable to use her quirk.

Super Moves

  • Meteor Fafrotskies (メテオファフロッキーズ Meteo Fafurokkīzu?): Tsuyu and Uravity work together to float debris and throw it at the enemies.
  • Camouflage ( () () (しょく) Hogoshoku?): Tsuyu uses her frog-like body to match the temperature and color of her surroundings in order to mask her presence.

Trivia

Tsuyu Prototype Design

Tsuyu Asui's preliminary design.

  • Tsuyu's preliminary design was less frog-like and more human in appearance, with smaller eyes and mouth. She was also supposed to be more downbeat.
    • Tsuyu was also originally conceived as a male character but was turned into a female because the class lacked girls at the time. She shares this aspect with Toru Hagakure.
  • Tsuyu's name contains the kanji for frog (?), puff (?), and Japan's rainy and humid climate (梅雨?), the latter which is the climate during the toad's egg-laying season.
  • Tsuyu's known U.A. data is as follows:
  • Tsuyu's rankings in the Popularity Polls are as follows:
    • Tsuyu ranked 6th in the First Popularity Poll.
    • Tsuyu ranked 9th in the Second Popularity Poll.
    • Tsuyu ranked 2nd in the First US Popularity Poll
    • Tsuyu ranked 5th in the in the Second US Popularity Poll
  • Tsuyu is fond of rain and jelly.
  • A mugshot of Chika Amatori from World Trigger used by Ōji Unit, first seen in chapter 151, bears a striking resemblance to Tsuyu.[4]
    • Additionally, Tsuyu's birthday is a day after Chika's (February 11), both have the kanji for rain (雨) in their names, and both seem to be related to frogs (in World Trigger's system, Chika's zodiac sign is Rana, the frog).
  • With her birthday taking place in February, Tsuyu is the second youngest student in Class 1-A, as everyone was 15 when they started U.A.'s school year in early April.
