My Hero Academia has fully unleashed Shoto Todoroki's new ultimate move, and the newest chapter has revealed some of the secrets to how this new technique came to be! The Final Act of the series is now in the midst of a heated final battle between Shoto and Dabi as the two fiery fighters air out all of their respective trauma over the course of their shared family life so far. Leading into this fans had been clued to Shoto's own struggle to quickly make up for the width of power between the two of them by using his own unique power to fill the gap.
The previous chapter had kicked off the final fight between Shoto and Dabi in full, and it was revealed that Shoto had developed a version of the Flashfire Fist his dad uses but was struggling in order to heat it up at the same kind of reckless speed that Dabi was destroying his body with. It was teased that Shoto had been fueling his fire with more of his ice powers to compensate, and the newest chapter reveals that Shoto has indeed figured out how to use his cold and hot techniques in a new kind of harmony for his new ultimate move.
Chapter 352 of My Hero Academia goes back in time to show when Shoto explains the usage of his new move to Izuku Midoriya, and it is indeed a different kind of version of Endeavor's Flashfire Fist. He explains that while it's tough to maintain the form for long, he has figured out how to elevate the original technique by using his heart to use both his left and right sides at the same time. It creates a sort of cold flame that allows him to pump heated and chilled blood through his heart to stabilize his body and the move itself.
It's a move that is unique to his combined abilities, and thus he soon uses an even more powerful version of it against Dabi with his true ultimate move, the Great Glacial Aegir, which sends a massive wave of icy flames through the area around him following a directly powerful punch.
