Have you ever wondered what would happen if Deku wasn’t too optimistic and had realistic emotions and saw the world like a normal kid? Well, in this article, we’ll explain what happens to our favorite main character when he gets hurt by Bakugo’s bullying, All Might’s neglect, and the true nature of society. Today we are going to tell you everything there is to know about Villain Deku or Evil Deku.
Who is the evil Deku?
Right 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 unwavering will to protect others even if it means losing their lives, and seeing good in villains who murdered or caused the murder of many people are a few 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 you can never become a hero, and being told to kill yourself for being a pathetic brat. Would you really feel happy and good about yourself? That’s exactly the case in this tragic yet complicated story of Evil Deku.

Why did Deku become a villain in the series?
Due to the existence of several versions of the series, we will simplify things. The beginning of these versions is similar with Deku wanting to become a hero. He admires All Might and wants to enroll in UA. But this is where things take a huge turn. Deku is always bullied by his classmates, including Bakugo. Instead of taking it easy, he tends to hate Bakugo and wishes him the worst.
Like MHA, Bakugo is captured by the villainous Sludge. But Deku looks at him in disgust and thinks he deserves it. Nonetheless, Deku makes his way to rescue 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 quirks. To which All Might replies that he can never become a Quirkless Hero even though he himself received One For All because he was Quirkless.
