In My Hero Academia, Izuku Midoriya, or Deku, is going to go through a major transformation. With season six already coming to an end, fans are curious about the status of the pro heroes. The Paranormal Liberation War was a big blow for the pro-heroes, and they needed to regroup after facing the disastrous calamities of the war.
However, Midoriya’s character arc is of particular interest to fans. Midoriya going “rogue” is a big part of season 6. It’s shown that he might be working on his own, as a vigilante, or as a pro hero.
Fans are interested to see if he finds any common ground between the two. However, Vigilante Deku, or Villian Deku, has a fan base of its own. The fact that vigilante Deku is canon has really fired up the cosplayers to put out their versions of vigilante Deku in the cosplay community. Since Vigilante Deku has not been animated yet, fans, even professional cosplayers, are taking inspiration from the manga panels. So, let us take a look at 40 Vigilante Deku Cosplay.
