7 Student Miruko By Pixelghosts
The end credits of the latter half of My Hero Academia‘s fourth season featured photographs of many of the major characters in their younger days in a scrapbook-like sequence. One of those characters is of course Miruko, in an image of her when she was still in hero school.
That’s the Miruko that Pixelghosts brought to life with her simple but amazing cosplay. Pixelghosts has made a Miruko dressed in UA’s white shirt, red tie combo that makes up their school uniform and a small detail that brings it all together are the red contacts to match Miruko’s eye color.
6 Miruko & Hawks By Yayjaybae
The last couple of episodes of season 4 introduced viewers of the anime to the top 10 Pro Heroes ranking in Japan. Two of the biggest stand-outs among the top heroes were Hawks and Miruko, the No. 2 and No. 5 heroes respectively.
This duo cosplay of both Miruko and Hawks comes from Yayjaybae, who is cosplayer the bunny hero, and Realmusclecosplay as the winged hero. Not much more can be said because the perfection of both of their cosplays is plain to see in the image. Both of them are on point.
5 Cutie Pie Miruko By CutiePieSensei
Fitting to her fighting style, Miruko’s name is inspired by a real life mixed martial arts champion Mirko Filipović, known by the nickname Cro Cop. That’s really all the information you need to know not to mess with her.
This fantastic Miruko cosplay comes from CutiePieSensei. She’s completely on point with her cosplay, it’s so incredibly detailed from the hero suit to even Miruko’s eyebrows. To add to that, CutiePieSensei’s decision to have the red contacts to match Miruko’s eye color is a small detail but one that really adds to the cosplay as a whole.
4 Striking A Pose By Moonaverse
Miruko’s hero suit design tells a story that western fans might not know about, and that is the crescent moon symbol on her chest. That along with her rabbit-like design could be seen as a reference to the tales of the Moon Rabbit, a mythical figure in Far Eastern folklore that lives on the moon.
This upbeat cosplay comes from Moonaverse. She’s matched Miruko’s pose perfectly and even though her post states that her thigh highs kept falling, she absolutely nailed it.
3 Limbering Up By LaydiexSkull
Since Miruko’s Quirk is rabbit based, it’s no surprise that most of her attacks center on using her powerful legs to kick villains into defeat. Before engaging in spectacular acrobatics and general butt kicking, it’s important for Miruko to stretch and limber up so she doesn’t damage her muscles.
2 Ready For Action By Jenevievedevereauxcosplay
It’s important for every hero to have at least one signature, or super, move. Miruko has four signature moves, each using her powerful kicks, and each seem to be named after the same Moon Rabbit that her overall design is referencing.
Jenevievedevereauxcosplay brings this Miruko cosplay to the table and it’s easily one of the best we’ve ever seen. Every aspect of Jenevieve’s Miruko cosplay is recreated with perfect detail, as is the pose she’s reenacting of Miruko in a side-by-side comparison that looks like Miruko hopped out of the manga/anime and into real life.
1 Maybe Y’all Didn’t Hear Her By Yoshi.jpg
Maybe the villains in the back didn’t hear her. Anyone planning evil deeds are going to be sent flying by Miruko. Miruko doesn’t mess around, she’s not the No. 5 hero for no reason. She’s one of the strongest and most determined heroes in all of My Hero Academia, and her recent manga appearances prove that.
This final Miruko cosplay is from Yoshi.jpg, who stunningly brings the bunny hero to life with one of the best cosplays around. Yoshi seriously looks like Miruko jumped off the page, or screen, and took a quick selfie in between rounds of kicking butt. Yoshi has loads of amazing cosplay on her profile worth checking out.
Miruko only appeared for a few seconds in My Hero Academia, but that was more than enough time to inspire some epic cosplays
