My Hero Academia has never been outright with the quirk known as One For All, and fans continue learning about it by the week. Now, the series is reaching out with another update, and it comes courtesy of a favorite spin-off manga.
Recently, My Hero Academia: Vigilantes put out a new chapter, and it was there fans caught up with All Might. The pro hero is still in his prime during this spin-off, and he used his power to help save tens of thousands. However, it turns out the thing that called to All Might the most was a personal plea, and the hero admitted his quirk is often compelled by such asks.
When speaking with Detective Tsukauchi, All Might told his friend One For All has a psychological element which can boost its power.
“It was your impassioned plea that got me here in time,” the hero said before adding, “There's a big psychological component to All Might's strength.”
Continuing, All Might went on to explain how it feels for him when his quirk is directly pled at.
“I know you explained how a public figure like me should never make things personal, but when I’m the one getting a rescue request... when I heard it with my own ears, that feels like a direct order to All Might. I accepted this power in order to give the people hope. The hope that their cries will surely reach All Might or something like that.”
Fans have long wondered if this was the case, and My Hero Academia has illustrated that effect several times. All Might has often talked about going beyond his limits when crisis was around the corner, and Izuku has done so as well. In the past, the hero's decision to rescue Bakugo proved he responds to the same psychology One For All uses. Now, it looks like there is actually something psychologically based about the power, and fans are eager to see how it grows with Izuku as the series continues.0comments
