In honor of the anime's big villain confrontation, he drew Kyōka Jirō, Denki Kaminari (whose brain shortcuits if he uses too much of his electical power) and Momo Yaoyorozu (who tends to lose clothes to get access to her matter creations power). 


While for the big doings in the manga, it was Deku and All Might.
