Shigaraki's Insanity Turns My Hero Academia Into A Horror Movie

While this fourth season of My Hero Academia has focused on the villain called Overhaul, the leader of the Yakuza, the franchise made sure to not forget about the evil doers that came before in the franchise. Shigarakai, the leader of the League Of Villains, made the decision to make a shaky truce with the Yakuza, giving Overhaul two members of his gang to join them. With Overhaul defeated, Shigaraki decides to swoop in and get his revenge on the leader of the Yakuza for initially attacking them!

As Shigaraki and several members of the League of Villains descend upon a captured Overhaul who is being transferred by the police. Unfortunately for Shigaraki, the police have backup in the form of Snatch, a professional hero who has the ability to manipulate sand. In a quick but brutal battle, Snatch falls before the League, and Mr. Compress locks him into one of his "beads".

With Overhaul laid out on the ground on a stretcher, Compress and Shigaraki proceed to dis-arm him, literally. Chisaki's arms are both removed from his body, making him completely harmless while the League takes the quirk erasing drug for their own use.

Shigaraki, as Overhaul lays before him, cackles before his fallen foe, reveling in the fact that all of Chisaki's work was now benefiting the League of Villains. With the current story arc now at an end and the heroes having lost more than they ever expected, the League of Villains is now more powerful than ever and we'll have to wait and see how Shigaraki puts Overhaul's drug to use.

Without going into details, Shigaraki's role continues in the series moving forward, with the current events in the manga focusing on the protege of All For One.
