Over the past few years, My Hero Academia has introduced a great number of characters who fans have fallen in love with. It doesn't matter whether you side with the heroes or villains; It is impossible to deny the charm of fighters on both sides. Of course, Dabi is one of these charismatic characters, and fans were recently stunned with the villain announced important details about his past. After all, his true identity has been revealed to the world, and the fandom is more than unsettled about his roots.
So if you are not caught up with the manga, proceed with caution! There are major spoilers below for My Hero Academia regarding Dabi and his origin story. You have been warned!
My Hero Academia just put out its most recent chapter, and the update was a major doozy. The update began hot enough with fans checking on Rei Todoroki as she watched a mysterious broadcast on television. It didn't take long for fans to discover that Dabi was behind the interruption, and the villain surprised the country by sharing an important fact. His real name is Toya Todoroki, and he is the eldest son of Endeavor.
This massive revelation sparked a wildfire of buzz with fans online. Social media is reacting to this long-awaited announcement in realtime, and netizens say the moment lived up to expectations. Dabi has positioned himself as the worst-case scenario for Endeavor as all of his horrifying abuse is coming to light. This much-needed confession has struck a killing blow to Hero Society as faith was already wavering in our top heroes. And after a botched raid on the villains, it is hard to imagine Hero Society being rebuilt until Shigaraki is taken care of.

Drama, Drama, Drama
The Touya/Dabi thing was never exciting for the mystery surrounding it (cause it was pretty fucking obvious lol). It was always exciting for the amount of character drama that would ensue between some of the best characters in MHA and Hori absolutely nailed things in that regard. pic.twitter.com/NsZ7y0Glsy— 𝐕𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐚 ☆ (@vesperiabraves) November 8, 2020

I feel so bad for this kid, he had no way of knowing about Endeavour’s past yet chose to support him and trust when everyone else didn’t. You can see just how much hope he placed on Endeavour, and it just shows how shocking Dabi’s reveal will be for all of hero society. pic.twitter.com/kh8cYiMwkA— Tams || 290 Spoilers || BIN DAY (@tamenquilla) November 8, 2020

THIS CHAPTER WAS F-CKING FANTASTIC!!!— AAADATTERY (@aaadattery) November 8, 2020
Most people have figured out that Dabi was Toya Todoroki for the longest and was just waiting for the reveal. A lot of exception was placed on Horikoshi to get this right and I'd say he met those expectations. 1/7 pic.twitter.com/OC6FhETonR
