Ever wonder what would happen if Deku wasn’t overly optimistic and had realistic emotions and saw the world as a normal kid? Well in this article we will explain what happens to our favorite main character when he is hurt by Bakugo’s bullying, All Might’s negligence, and society’s true nature. Today we will let you in on everything there is to know about Villain Deku or Evil Deku.
Who is Villain Deku?
From the start of MHA, we all noticed something that was extremely obvious. And that part is that Deku is very naive and optimistic. The way he forgives and talks to Bakugo, his die-hard will to protect others even if it means losing his life, and seeing the good in villains that have murdered or caused the murder of many people are some traits that make him look like a very innocent and optimistic person.
But what if he had a normal character design? Imagine yourself in his shoes, facing constant criticism for not having a quirk, being told that you can never become a hero and asked to kill yourself for being a pathetic brat. Would you really feel happy and good about yourself? That is exactly the case in this tragic yet complicated story of Evil Deku.

Instead of taking it easy he tends to hate Bakugo and wishes the worst for him.
Like MHA, Bakugo is captured by the Sludge villain. But Deku looks at him with disgust and says to himself that he deserves it. Nevertheless, Deku makes his way in to save Bakugo even after being denied entry by the other people. After being saved by All Might, he confronts him and asks if he can become a hero without a quirk. To which All Might answers that he can never become a hero without a quirk even though he himself received One For All because he was quirkless.
