Any My Hero Academia fan can appreciate a good villain. Sometimes, villains can be even more interesting and complex characters than goody-two-shoes heroes, and Dabi is certainly one of them. So why not step out of the mold and go with an action figure of this fan-favorite antagonist?

This particular figure portrays Dabi using his fire Quirk in battle with a menacing smile, and it stands at around 5.12 inches. This collection also has other My Hero Academia villain figures available, like Shigaraki and Himiko Toga, to choose from. Depending on the figure, the size may vary, but they all come with a random trading card as a bonus. The princes range from $15 to $46.

You can find almost any character from the series in POP! form, but if you’re not sure which one would be the right choice to gift the My Hero Academia fan in your life, there’s no way you can go wrong with this one.

This figure depicts Deku in the epic fight to save Eri, with One for All flowing throughout his body. Featuring Eri on the protagonist’s back, this figure is around 4.75-inches tall, and is loved by its unique colors that aren’t easily found in other My Hero Academia POP! The cherry on top?

For cold days, nothing is better than cozy items to keep us warm. So how about gifting your hero-enthusiast their very own U.A.-themed Winter hat and scarf? Not only would this make a cool gift but also a very useful one, especially for someone who doesn’t like the cold.

The items are in the U.A. uniform’s signature colors — green and gray — and feature the school’s sigil in white. For an extra touch, U.A.’s mottos, “Plus Ultra” and “Go Beyond” are also displayed in the scarf. Despite this, the design is neutral enough that it goes under the radar of anyone unfamiliar with the series, which can be ideal for more low-key fans. Both pieces are made of acrylic yarn material, and according to reviewers, it’s fairly soft to the touch. To make your life simpler, the items are designed to fit people of various sizes, so you don’t have to worry about measurements. This set is priced at $45.82.
