If you are a fan of My Hero Academia, you might have wondered if the protagonist Izuku Midoriya, also known as Deku, and the main antagonist Tomura Shigaraki are related in some way. After all, they both have a connection to the legendary hero All Might, and they both have a mysterious power called One For All. But are they really brothers, or is there something else going on?
The Shocking Revelation
The speculation about Deku and Shigaraki’s relation started when Shigaraki called Deku “Little Brother” in chapter 277 of the manga. This happened when Shigaraki tried to grab Deku and steal his One For All quirk. Both Deku and Shigaraki were surprised by this term of address, and wondered what it meant.
However, it was soon revealed that it was not Shigaraki who spoke, but the spirit of All For One, the ultimate villain and Shigaraki’s master. All For One had implanted his quirk and consciousness into Shigaraki, and was trying to take over his body. He was also trying to get One For All, the quirk that he created and gave to his younger brother long ago.
The Origin of One For All
All For One is the oldest and most powerful villain in the world of My Hero Academia. He has a quirk that allows him to steal and use any other quirk he wants. He also has a younger brother, Yoichi Shigaraki, who was born quirkless and opposed his brother’s tyranny.
All For One decided to give his brother a quirk that could stockpile power, hoping to make him stronger and more loyal. However, he did not know that Yoichi had a hidden quirk that could transfer quirks to others. The two quirks merged and became One For All, a quirk that could accumulate power and pass it on to the next user.
Yoichi was the first user of One For All, and he tried to fight against his brother with the help of other heroes. However, he was too weak and failed. He passed on his quirk to the next user before he died, hoping that one day someone would be able to defeat All For One.
The Successors of One For All
One For All has been passed down through nine generations of heroes, each one adding their own power and will to it. The seventh user was Nana Shimura, a woman who inherited the quirk from her master. She was also the grandmother of Tomura Shigaraki, who was born as Tenko Shimura.
Nana Shimura had to give up her son for his safety, as she was constantly targeted by All For One. Her son grew up hating heroes and forbade his family from talking about them. He abused his children, especially Tenko, who had a quirk that could decay anything he touched.
One day, Tenko’s quirk went out of control and killed his entire family, except for his father. He was then found by All For One, who took him in and gave him a new name: Tomura Shigaraki. He also gave him a new goal: to destroy everything that Nana Shimura loved, including All Might and One For All.
The eighth user of One For All was Toshinori Yagi, better known as All Might. He inherited the quirk from Nana Shimura, who was killed by All For One. He became the symbol of peace and justice in the world, inspiring many people with his heroism.
He also met Izuku Midoriya, a boy who was born quirkless but had a strong desire to become a hero. He saw something special in him and decided to pass on his quirk to him. He became his mentor and taught him how to use One For All.
Izuku Midoriya is the ninth and current user of One For All. He enrolled in U.A. High School, a prestigious academy for aspiring heroes. He made many friends and rivals there, including Katsuki Bakugo, Ochaco Uraraka, Shoto Todoroki, and Eijiro Kirishima.
He also faced many enemies, such as the League of Villains led by Tomura Shigaraki. He learned about the history of One For All and its connection to All For One. He also discovered that he could access the quirks and memories of the previous users of One For All, including Yoichi Shigaraki.
The Fate of Deku and Shigaraki
Deku and Shigaraki are not related by blood, but they are connected by fate. They are both successors of a power that was born from the conflict between two brothers. They are both destined to face each other in a final battle that will decide the future of the world.
Deku represents the hope and courage of the heroes, while Shigaraki represents the despair and hatred of the villains. They are opposites, but they also have similarities. They both started out as weak and quirkless, but they both gained a powerful quirk and a mentor. They both have a strong will and a dream to achieve.
However, they also have different choices and values. Deku chose to follow All Might’s example and use his quirk to save people. Shigaraki chose to follow All For One’s example and use his quirk to destroy everything. Deku values his friends and allies, while Shigaraki despises them and sees them as tools.
The question is, who will win in the end? Will Deku be able to stop Shigaraki and All For One, and protect the world from their evil? Or will Shigaraki be able to take One For All from Deku, and bring chaos and destruction to the world? Only time will tell.
