Who is Izuku Midoriya?
Izuku Midoriya is a 16 year-old high school student at U.A High School, one of the best hero academy in Japan. In a world where most humans have superpowers, Midoriya is one of the rare few who do not have any powers. However, he got the attention of the number 1 hero, The Symbol of Peace: All Might, became his pupil and also inherited his superpowers.
Izuku Midoriya is a timid person, a result of being discriminated as "Quirkless" during his childhood. However, he is also a very heroic person, who will put the safety of those in distress above his own. He dreams that one day he can become a hero. It is because of this personality trait that All Might took Midoriya under his wings.


One For All in action


  • Quirk Name: One For All
  • Type: Physical Enhancement
What is One For All?
One For All is the union between 2 Quirks, one that stockpiles and enhances physical strength, and another that can transfer this reserve from one person to the next. This Quirk has existed for as long as superpowers have existed in human beings. Since it holds an immense pool of strength, it can physically destroy vessels which are not suitable.
How does Midoriya Izuku use One For All?
Izuku Midoriya is not a suitable vessel to wield the true power of One For All. When he first received the ability, he cannot control his power, hurting himself every time he uses the Quirk. Later on, Midoriya developed a skill called Full Cowl, which allows him to use 5% of One For All without any physical drawbacks.


Even though Midoriya didn't have a physical ability for most of his life, he compensated by having a very meticulous mind. He analyzed many heroes' Quirk and fighting style, and wrote it in his collection. This translate to how he fights once he has gotten One For All. He always tries to predict and plan around an opponent before engaging.
