Mina Ashido, also known as Pinky, is a student in Class 1-A at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero. She is also a recurring character from My Hero Academia.

She is voiced by Eri Kitamura in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Caitlin Glass in the English version of the anime.


Mina is a teenage girl of medium height with a humanoid appearance, due to her Quirk affecting her skin pigment, she has a pinkish complexion. Her eyes are yellow with black irises, and she has short, fluffy pink hair with two yellow horns protruding from the top.

Mina's hero costume consists of a white mask along with a purple and turquoise, camouflage-styled skin-tight bodysuit that ends just above her breasts. She wears a short, sleeveless waistcoat which is beige in colour and has a fur-aligned hood. Along with this, she also wears custom plum and beige acid-proof boots with holes in the bottom that allow her secrete acid and use it to slide around.


Mina is an enthusiastic, cheery and friendly girl, often seen smiling and kindly interacting with others. She is often quite free-spirited and is very skilled at dancing. Mina despises bullying and would stand up to, but also pacify bullies in middle-school, with her helping others motivating her desire to become a hero. Mina also proved herself to be quite brave, as she rushed in to save her friends from Gigantomachia, despite being afraid herself.

Mina can be something of an air-head, and has shown to suffer academically while hiding her distress over the upcoming written exam. However, it is shown that she can overcome this and can become dedicated if given the right tutelage, having pushed past her difficulties after attending Momo Yaoyorozu's study session.

Mina is also something of a romantic, and took immediate interest upon discovering that her friend Ochaco Uraraka had developed feelings for one of her classmates.

Powers and abilities


Mina using Acid

Mina's Acid Quirk.

Mina's Quirk, Acid, allows her to generate acid from her body. She can manipulate the properties of the acid such as viscosity.

Mina's main form of offense with her Quirk is to generate corrosive acid to melt her targets. She can use the acid defensively as well by creating a shield made of thick acid to melt projectiles aimed at her. In addition, for utility purposes, she can melt holes in a wall for climbing or release slippery, non-corrosive liquid from her feet for sliding around.



  • Mina's rejected hero name Alien Queen, references Ellen Ripley from the movie Alien, where the titular, extra-terrestrial creature that possesses acidic blood.
