TogaDabi is the het ship between Toya "Dabi" Todoroki and Himiko Toga from the My Hero Academia fandom.

Canon

After the two villains learned that Stain the Hero Killer was caught, young Himiko and the mysterious Dabi get recruited into the League of Villains by Giran. Knowing that their quirks, dislike for heroes and them coming back strong after a defeat will help the League complete their goal. Even though Himiko tagged along in hopes of meeting Stain, while Dabi plans to make the Hero Killer's ideals a reality; since both of them have no trouble in taking another person's life for their own gain. When Tomura saw them he describes the two as a brat and a guy with no manners, and that has him believing that they have no place in the League. Giran on the other hand did and asks Tomura to give them a chance as he introduces Dabi and Himiko to him. Even though Himiko tells them her true name, Dabi refused to do so and tells them that he goes by Dabi right now. Himiko's age and Dabi wanting to keep his true identity a secret angered Tomura and tries to attack them. Dabi and Himiko lunge for him as well, but Kurogiri intervenes to keep them from hurting one another. Himiko didn't mind that Tomura tried to kill them, while Dabi thought that the way Kurogiri used his quirk on them was weird. Despite what almost happened to them, Tomura allows Dabi and Toga to join the League.

Their first mission as members of the LoV has Dabi and Himiko being apart of the Vanguard Action Squad, who get tasked to attack the U.A. Forest Training Camp in order to kidnap Katsuki Bakugo. After Dabi uses his flame quirk to trap the U.A. students in the forest, he and Toga go to fetch their target and attack any of the students that try to get in their way. Before Dabi manages grabs Bakugo, after Himiko had failed to do so, the two villains had left impressions on Izuku Midoriya, Shoto Todoroki and Ochako Uraraka that night, along with the two villains being interested in them.

After Dabi and Toga helped their allies to clam victory over the Meta Liberation Army, they became two of the nine lieutenants of the Paranormal Liberation Front. This has Himiko sitting next to Dabi at the big meeting table. One of those meetings has Himiko meeting the pro hero Dabi vouched for [1], but chose to keep the fact that Hawks is a spy to himself.

Himiko is known for her insane smiles in the admits of battle [2] and finds joy in spilling another person's blood, and Dabi produces his own "insane" smile when he was harming Hawks with his blue flames after he killed Twice [3]. Who was close with Himiko and Dabi attacking Hawks allowed one of the Twice clones to save Himiko from a hero's grasps. Later on and without any kind of warning, Gigantomachia grabs the two and placed them on his back with the other villains, as he brings them to Tomura's location. After Dabi admires the massive chaos that Gigantomachia caused on the way, while Himiko was still upset over Twice's murder, Dabi orders Skeptic to upload his hero damaging video, that will also reveal his true identity as Toya Todoroki. This allowed Himiko to notice Ochako on Skeptic's screen, and wants to take off and ask a hero if a villain like their friend Twice is considered a person to them or not. Dabi went through something similar from when he was abused by his pro hero father as a child, but he was too focused on the video he wants broadcast to notice Himiko leave. Spinner does mange to tell Himiko Toga to return safely to the League hideout, after she got her answers. Earlier on in the War Arc, Toga had noticed that Dabi is carrying some paint remover with him and asks him what it is for, and he tells her that it is for a surprise. That surprise turned out to be the reveal of his true identity as Toya Todoroki, the oldest son of the pro hero Endeavor.

Fanon

This section is in need of major improvement. Please help improve this article by editing it.

The ship began when the two joined the League of Villains at the same time and the way they both tried to attack Shigaraki Tomura, along with the many brief moments in the manga where Dabi and Himiko are seen not being too far away from each other has inspired fans to support TogaDabi, it still isn't as popular as TogaWice and ShigaDabi. Like with TogaWice, the age gap between them has some fans preferring to depict Dabi as a big brother figure to Himiko. Before Chapter 290 revealed Dabi's true identity as Toya Todoroki, fans have expected this for a long time and him being an older brother got fans to wonder if he might have saw Himiko as a surgent sister, until chapter 267 reveals that Dabi didn't care about Twice at all and might feel the same about Himiko.

Due to the nature of Himiko's quirk and Dabi also killing people like it is second nature to him as well, most TogaDabi fanart has the two being covered in blood drop stains or have Dabi allowing her to bite him and taking small sips of his blood. Because Himiko has blond hair and isn't afraid to say what is on her minds, like Bakugo and Hawks, it inspires fans ship TogaDabi beside TodoBaku and EndHawks [7]. Even though the two have very little interaction with one another in canon, fans do have Dabi and Toga turning to each other in fanon. From them being two of the main focused villains in the MHA series, next to Shigaraki.

On AO3, the ship has 105 het fanfics and friendship 310 fics under the Dabi character tag and under Touya it is only 7 het fics and 14 friendship fanfics, while FanFiction.Net has 38 fanfics under Dabi and only one under Touya. Along with both Tumblr and Deviantart having a large amount of fanart images of the villain ship.

Trivia

  • Just as Dabi's weak contusion caused his flames to heavily scar his body and changed his appearance to keep his true identity a secret, until he was ready to reveal to the world, Himiko's quirk allows her to look like anyone as long as she has a sample of their blood.
  • Even though Himiko did jump off Gigantomachia before he brought Dabi and the others to Tomura, where Dabi reveals his true identity to their allies, there is a chance that she might have saw or heard the echoes of Dabi's hero damaging broadcast.
