One My Hero Academia fan has highlighted Midnight with cosplay fitting for the R-Rated Hero! The franchise will be celebrating the fifth anniversary of its anime adaptation this year, and Kohei Horikoshi's manga is still going strong in the pages of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Throughout its run thus far fans have been introduced to a wide variety of heroes and villains that have an even wilder variety of quirks and character designs. With so many characters to balance, however, it's more about making the most impact with even the smallest appearances as they are not always involved in the key arcs.

This especially is true for heroes like Midnight. Although she does not play a central role in the franchise as a whole, as a member of the hero faculty in U.A. Academy fans have seen her pop up quite a bit throughout that series and even the My Hero Academia: Vigilantes spin-off series. Horikoshi made sure to make a bold stamp with each and every one of the character's appearances, and now that boldness has been highlighted with some awesome cosplay from artist @peytoncosplay on Instagram!

Through each of her sporadic appearances throughout the franchise, Midnight had become a major fan favorite hero among My Hero Academia fans. Unfortunately for those fans, Midnight wasn't quite involved with many of the biggest arcs for the series as a whole. While she does get some time to teach at U.A. Academy, the series spends most of the time away from Izuku and the other heroes' school lives these days. This also means the roster of heroes and villains had been trimmed for each adventure.

Midnight does get some more time to shine alongside the other heroes later in the series, however, and this was especially true with the massive war between the villains and heroes that played out over the course of 2020. Midnight's role was a bit more pronounced here than her actions in the series' past, and it's these scenes that fans can't wait to see play out in the anime someday. This'll probably come to pass in a potential seventh season of the series.
