Class 1-A, in particular, is home to some seriously cool and stylish characters, several of whom are fan favorites and are iconic of the show. A truly cool student hero will have several worthwhile qualities to them, from a stylish hero costume to a confident personality to fascinating dialogue or just a general "it" factor for sheer coolness. Anime fans know a cool My Hero Academia character when they see one, and Class 1-A is ready.
Like his classmate Fumikage, the troubled Shoto Todoroki tends to be pretty dramatic and self-important, but it's justified, and that makes him cool rather than tacky. He really does have serious baggage where his family and Quirk are concerned, but he's trying his best, and My Hero Academia fans commend him for that.
Shoto is cool from top to bottom, from his good looks and flashy Quirk-based combat style to his aloof, kuudere personality as a talented student with high personal standards. He also boosted his likability by finally relaxing a bit and showing his kinder side to his classmates and later, his family, too.
