My Hero Academia didn't just give us the defining moment of Red Riot's young career, it gave us perhaps one of the greatest moments of the franchise yet. With the young hero and his mentor, Fat Gum, facing off against two of the members of the Eight Bullets, the hard hitting villain Rappa delivers a series of blows that nearly brings down both heroes. With Fat Gum needing a quick breather to unleash his ultimate technique, Kirishima jumps in front of Rappa's blows, giving him the time he needs to reveal his skinnier form and put down both Rappa and Hekiji.
With Red Riot beginning his legacy as one of the greatest heroes the world of My Hero Academia has ever seen, fans are erupting online to celebrate Kirisihima's shining moment, solidifying himself as one of the biggest characters of the franchise.
