Can I make a suggestion for Izuku and his powers and also his growth? If I were you I would really take inspiration from iconography of the Western and Asian Dragon and maybe Izuku takes on traits from both East Asian and Western Dragons for his powers and abilities.
Lets start with the Dragon's role in China.
The Dragon played an influential and beneficial role in Chinese culture. An amalgam of several creatures, including monitor lizards, pythons and the Chinese alligator, the polymorphic dragon was a water spirit, responsible for bringing the rains and thus ensuring the survival of crops. The dragon was the symbolic guardian to the gods, and was the source of true wisdom. This latter feature most likely resulted from the observation of the living reptilian counterparts which usually at rest seem to be in a near constant state of contemplation.
The dragon represented two of the ancient elements, Earth and Water, endowing the creature with powers of illusion and strength. A Yang symbol, the Taoists saw the dragon as a personification of the Tao itself—"the Dragon reveals himself only to vanish". Shaolin Buddhists saw him as a vision of enlightened truth, to be felt, but never to be held. Certain very old men were called dragons, these being well versed in the life-supporting skills of herbal medicine, agriculture, and Kung Fu. In early China these skills were surely a matter of life or death, and those so educated were held in high regard.
Now here is the Western Dragon. During the early Middle Ages, European culture was largely out of contact with classical literature for centuries. During this time there was a gradual change in the usual mental image of the "dragon", i.e. the Latin draco and its equivalents in vernacular languages, which occurred in oral and written literature, including in classical literature. This led to the depiction in this literature of "modern-type" dragons, whose features are described below.
The modern western image of a dragon developed in western Europe during the Middle Ages through the combination of the snakelike dragons of classical Graeco-Roman literature, references to Near Eastern European dragons preserved in the Bible, and western European folk traditions including descriptions and drawings of animals named as types of snakes but inaccurately drawn with wings and/or legs. The period between the 11th and 13th centuries represents the height of European interest in dragons as living creatures.
Dragons are usually shown in modern times with a body more like a huge lizard, or a snake with two pairs of lizard-type legs, and breathing fire from their mouths. This traces back to the continental dragon, commonly referred to as a fire-breathing dragon. The continental, like many other European dragons, has bat-like wings growing from its back.
The Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf refers to a dragon as a draca and also as a wyrm (worm, or serpent). Its movements are denoted by the Anglo-Saxon verb bugan, "to bend", and it is said to have a venomous bite, and poisonous breath; all of these indicate a snake-like form and movement rather than with a lizard-like or dinosaur-like body as in later depictions, and no legs or wings are mentioned; however it shows several dragon features that later became popular: it breathed fire, lived underground, and collected treasure.
The oldest recognizable image of a "modern-style" western dragon appears in a hand-painted illustration from the bestiary MS Harley 3244, which was produced in around 1260. This dragon has two sets of wings and its tail is longer than most modern depictions of dragons, but it clearly displays many of the same distinctive features.
Dragons are generally depicted as having an underground lair or cave, or living in rivers. They are envisioned as greedy and gluttonous, with voracious appetites. Dragons are often identified with Satan, due to the references to Satan as a "dragon" in the Book of Revelation.
In Western folklore, dragon-like creatures and dragons in Christian literature are usually portrayed as evil, except mainly in Asturian and Welsh folklore and modern fiction. Y Ddraig Goch is the Welsh name of The Dragon on The National Flag of Wales. Dig into Welsh and British folklore! The oldest recorded use of the dragon to symbolize Wales is in the Historia Brittonum, written around AD 829, but it is popularly supposed to have been the battle standard of King Arthur and other ancient Celtic leaders. Its association with these leaders, along with other evidence from archaeology, literature, and documentary history, led many to suppose that it evolved from an earlier Romano-British national symbol.
In the modern period and late medieval times, the European dragon is typically depicted as a huge fire-breathing, scaly, and horned lizard-like creature, with wings (usually leathery bat-like, sometimes feathered), two or four legs, and a long muscular tail. It is sometimes shown with one or more of a crest, a fiery mane, ivory spikes running down its spine, and various exotic coloration's. Dragon's blood often has magical properties. The typical dragon protects a cavern or castle filled with gold and treasure and is often associated with a great hero who tries to slay it. Though a winged creature, the dragon is generally to be found in its underground lair, a cave that identifies it as an ancient creature of earth.
Here is my suggestion for Izuku's growth.
First Izuku's Dragon form have a venomous bite like the Dragon from Beowulf and Izuku can breath fire like western dragons and I would also look at all of what Jake Long; From American Dragon: Jake Long can do as well for Izuku Midoriya's dragon powers and abilities as well. But that is not all let Izuku's Dragon Form eventually take on traits of both Western and Eastern Dragons.
Now that is not all for the boy and his path to power. Let Izuku gain mystical powers and here are the abilities Izuku should learn. Please let Izuku gain Elemental and Master Taoist Magic by studying with Shota's father or you can have Lucoa teach Izuku Taoist and Elemental Magic to become more versatile after finding out he has mystical potential after he awakens Yang Energy. But that is not all Izuku learns.
Let Izuku gain Elemental and also Taoist Magic. Let him master the elements of Earth, Water, Wind, and Fire. Make Lucoa or Shota's father teaches Izuku Taoist and Elemental Magic to become more versatile after finding out he has mystical potential and awakens Yang Energy.
You should also take a look at Onmyōdō (meaning "the Way of Yin and Yang") Onmyodo is Japanese-style spell-casting. From Onmyodo Izuku's new abilities range from controlling the energy of Yin and Yang, Manipulate the Five Elements, control shikigami, and learns divination to utlizing ofuda and alchemy for the last of the mystical abilities that Izuku should get as Izuku is Japanese.
But wait their is more. If this happens please take a look The Spirit Cultivation Genre for Izuku's mystical training and also the powers of the Taoist Sages in traditional Orthodox Taoism and folk Taoism such as the Tao Te Ching. Other important texts include the Zhuangzi, which is best known in the west for the story about being a man-dreaming butterfly, or a butterfly-dreaming man. Taoist works have been collected and compiled together as the "Daozang" aka Taoist Canon.
But I am not done yet.
I would also make sure that Izuku gains all of the powers of Dislyte's Tang Xuan/Sun Wukong as well.
Now If Izuku wants to further train his powers let him find Enlightenment. To do so please also see the various Buddhist meditation practices and Buddhist Sutras and the Shaolin Monks and religious Taoist practices.
Here is a list of superpowers Izuku must gain after finding enlightenment. The obvious ones for Izuku are Psychic Powers like: Astral Projection, Telepathy, and Aura Vision.
However I would also look at Saint Seiya and also the character of Virgo Shaka from that series.
The First ability from Shaka Izuku gets is Hāṃ (Kān): A defensive technique that creates a barrier that encircles Shaka's body.
The second ability Izuku gets from Shaka is Tenma Kōfuku (Demon Suppressor): Which expands Izuku's power as a huge blast of energy.
The third ability that Izuku gains from Shaka is Ohm. This Buddhist chant allows Izuku to use the full extent of his power without drawbacks.
And also, give the boy martial arts training. And after doing some research I have found that Dragon Style Martial Arts are a real thing. Go with both North and South Dragon as Izuku needs them to survive and embrace the full potential of the Dragon motif.
Here is what I could find on North Dragon Style Kung Fu.
NORTHERN DRAGON KUNG FU
Students work on a paired striking blocking exercise and practice form techniques.
While there are many martial arts that require acrobatic leaps, dynamic athleticism, or the strength to break boards, bricks, or other inanimate objects, Northern Dragon is not one of those arts. In fact, Northern Dragon teaches students to stay firmly rooted on the ground, and with good reason—being grounded to the earth allows the generation of power from the feet on up. What this means is that as an art firmly rooted in the earth, your main physical concern will be building up the strength and endurance in your legs and core muscles that will allow you to maintain a stance for longer and longer periods of time. That’s why its a practice; a discipline. Anyone can do it, given the commitment to the practice.
The dragon represented by Northern Dragon Style Kung fu is not the winged, fire breathing, destructive western dragon familiar to most people; it is the eastern, and more specifically, the Chinese dragon. The Chinese saw the dragon as an incredibly benevolent and life giving creature worthy of reverence. Students mimic this mythical creature's movements. Like the Chinese dragon, Northern Dragon stylists float and sink, circle and twist, and expand and contract in response to attack.
As the embodiment of benevolent, life giving, and revered creatures, a Northern Dragon stylist would never start an attack, and would do everything possible to avoid an encounter. However, if a fight is unavoidable, then an absolute and totally determined effort is applied to overcome a potentially stronger force. Following an attacker’s first sign of aggression, a dragon stylist does not hold back, but becomes an instantaneous and non-stop attacking force.
PROGRESS THROUGH THE SYSTEM
Northern Dragon Kung Fu utilizes a standard western grading system of colored sashes denoting rank advancement. The ranks are as follows: Kai Shan (no sash), White, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Black.
As students complete levels of the curriculum, they are constantly observed and informally assessed before being formally graded for their next rank. Grading cycles occur every four months.
Following an attacker’s first sign of aggression, a dragon stylist does not hold back, but becomes an instantaneous and non-stop attacking force relying on floating and sinking movements with shoulders dropped and elbows bent.
A Dragon stylist defends himself by withdrawing or curving his body inwardly to absorb or neutralize any incoming attack. When the opponent has over-reached in his or her attack, the dragon stylist changes from soft to hard, and combines footwork with blocks as he intercepts his or her opponent.
The Dragon stylist will evade the opponent’s attack, simultaneously intercepting and breaking through the defense of your adversary. You will take advantage of the tense side of the opponent’s attention, or the lax side of his or her inattentiveness. You will then launch a strike from an unexpected direction and strike an unexpected area.
As one arm strikes forward, the other is readied back. Your arms swing in and out with power generated from the waist. The application of pressure is in the same direction as the attacker’s force.
If the opponent moves forward, retreat and move along in the same direction as the attack. If he or she retreats, move forward into their retreating motion, and put the pressure back on again. Counter straight with curved, and curved with straight. Hands follow feet, feet follow hands. When the hands stop the feet follow, when the feet stop, the hands follow. Move left, go right, move right, go left. Up follows down, down follows up. A strike is a block, a block is a strike.
If the opponent’s power is too great, the Dragon stylist steps off line, to counter an opponent’s open area, and to “bounce” him or her out. The Dragon stylist, keeping the above in mind, uses many large zig — zag stepping movements with the practitioner constantly extending and contracting his or her body.
These concepts may seem hard to understand at first, but they will become more apparent with continued training in the Dragon style. These movements should be done together: up follows down, which could mean first strike up then drop low and strike. They could also be combined with the attacker’s movements. For example, if the attacker strikes up, drop low and counter-strike.
As with any history, over a period of time, information is lost or improperly transmitted. Dragon style is no exception. For example, although I have studied Dragon style for many years, I am still learning new things about it. In some instances, I have come across information about the Dragon Style which differs from information that I received earlier. Therefore, all students, even (especially) at the instructors level, are constantly learning or relearning information or techniques in the Dragon System.
Now here is what I could find on Southern Dragon. The movements of the Southern Dragon style of Shaolin Kung Fu are based on the Chinese dragon. The Dragon style is an imitative-style that was developed based on the characteristics of the Chinese dragon that mixes each of the various animal styles of Shaolin Kung Fu.
Also maybe Izuku takes up the philosophy of the South Dragon School of Kung Fu.
Control yourself, let others do what they will.
This does not mean you are weak.
Control your heart, obey the principles of life.
This does not mean others are strong".
The seeds were first planted from Haufeng; the essence was gained later at Haushou
Restrain one's self and yield to others not because one is weak, but to uphold the ethical Tao and let the others have their claim.
Focus to train and condition the body.
Be righteous and uphold your honor.
Respect your parents, honor your teacher.
Treat others with honesty, treat your friends with loyalty.
If this happens, let Izuku gradually find out what he can do and also works to gradually develop these powers and abilities, and make him train and work hard to master the power of the Dragon within.
Let him make mistakes, but also learn from them and bounce back.
