Film Theory: My Hero Academia - All Might's SECRET Quirk!

    A few thoughts that I'm excited to discuss:
    - As far as "Why wouldn't Deku inherit the same transformation power?" As I understand it, One for All isn't about actual POWERS getting passed down, but rather storing ENERGY. Despite being the eighth in line, All Might is just really strong -- he doesn't really demonstrate a lot of other quirks/powers like you would expect. That would imply either A) everyone who came before him had the quirk of "Super Strength" which seems unlikely or B) that One for All is more about absorbing the ENERGY of the users who came before and adding it up in the next person, almost as if you're adding the power levels from Dragon Ball Z.

    - Regarding the "I'm always flexing" explanation from Episode 2...he still needs a certain amount of energy to flex. That's' why he's only able to do it for a few hours and why, as One for All fades away, he can no longer "flex." But wouldn't that still classify it as a Transformation Quirk? His body IS changing. It just feels like an incomplete explanation...It could also be that he's lying. At this point in the series, Deku is still just a random kid, not a candidate for One for All, so presumably All Might wouldn't want to give away too much information. That's also why he avoids the specifics around where he got his injury from.

    - It's also clear that All Might's normal form is his skinny form. As we see in the training clips of young All Might, he was never naturally that buff. And that's him using One for All at nearly 100% right off the bat? Maybe I'm just reading too far into that moment.

      I’m beyond late here, but, if you listen to the anime, the user of OFA makes it their own, perhaps that All Might modified OFA for him to make him simply stronger and more buff, making him have a different form, Deku probably wasn’t able to use the same form because his body was “Different” probably because Deku rushed, as you said, perhaps that it flows through All Mights body. Not saying your theory is wrong or bad, but it’s a good chance that it is wrong.

      Spoiler alert if you haven't read the manga .

      In the latest chapter Deku gets a third quirk from one of the predecessors of One For All . It's unclear what it was but he was shooting off this black substance that looked like lightning , or Venom's black tendrils . So One For All isn't just 2 quirks . It's actually 3 confirmed quirks with potentially 6 more on the way from the other users , not including All Might .

      I think 8:25 is the best foreshadowing you're going to get with this theory, until more information comes out

        The reason why dekus body doesn't change is bc all might got hit by cucular saw and can only be hero for 3 hours

          All might trained himself to that level. Then after the battle with all for one he then reverted to that since he lost a bunch of organs.

            dude literally all might has a skinny form now because of his fight with all for one that made him very weak its pretty complicated as in a few flashbacks he is sometimes seen with his skinny form talking to his master but the most best guess is that all might got that form due to his fight with all for one

                Debunked one for all has multiple quirks in it so if all might did have a quirk then midoriya has it too.

                  Because I watch the Japanese version of the anime, hearing the English counterpart was soooo wierd. Like Deku when he commented on the limbs exploding off, in the Japanese he says 'They... WHAT?!' if memory serves right. Yet in the English dub he just says 'Seriously?!' Also in the same scene, all might says in the Japanese anime: 'You limbs would explode off!' and in the English dub he said: 'You arms and legs surely would fly off!' Which I know for a fact is different.

                  There you go matpat, have fun reading an over the top comparison of the Japanese and English dub versions of the anime.

                      I think that since all might uses way more of one for all then deku his body needs to muscle up as a result to the quirk having that much power. If deku did use one million percent, his body must have not been able to grow with only one punch. Think about it, all might uses a lot of one for all and knows he is going to use it a lot. Deku has a 5 percent limit and knows it. His body knows it. This is why he doesn’t muscle up. Going back to the million percent punch, deku didn’t know he had to use it and couldn’t prep his body up for it.

                            Deku doesn’t change because all might had a injury inside his shirt which is his weak spot he got that injury from a villain attack 5 years ago so all might is only able to use One For All for 3 hours only due to his injury

                                  I really love your channel and is a sub but Sorry but your wrong about his form his original size is the big one but he lost mass from an accident but your right about the quirk being in two genres he shouldn't be to gain mass instantly if his quirk is not transformation type quirk which means he does have two types transformation and emitter type because deku had to activate it by focusing it in a part of the body like how he does to his fingers, arms and legs

                                              Soooo, it’s a balloon. All Might is a balloon. They even said his true form looks “deflated”

                                                kinda missing the fact that one for all passes the quirks onto the next person, so deku would also get the transformation quirk almight has...

                                                  I think this is what actually happens his quirk was originally a transformation quirk that was irrelevant as it allows the user to flex harder let me explain when he flexed he looked buffer so basically he has no quirk but he thought he could have thought oh I have no quirk

                                                  Booom explained and also it's been stated that one for all enhance s quirks

Its literally the opposite of One for All, that steals quirks. Each time a user passed it on, their innate quirk goes with it. That's how it grows. It the series, almight is given a hard time because he chose a quirkless successor.

If he no longer has the strength that one for all had, he wouldn't be able to flex. All Might could just be too weak to flex now, like how if you excersize too much you get too weak flex your muscles in your arms and legs, or when you break a toe you can't move many of the other 5 on that foot very well, as I have foumd out within the last week. I love yhe theory, but you looked over what All Mighy has already said about yhe way he looks

He just said to himself it 10000% to raise his own morale. But yeah the point still remains. Deku does not transform even when he uses One For All at 30%

                                                                                          • AkioPlayz AKA BurbPlayz
