My Hero Academia is a great show. Anime falls into the shonen category, and trademarks of shonen stories are everywhere. Whether it’s about an overly optimistic hero or a mentor who is ready to believe and push the protagonist forward. My Hero Academia has it all. It shows us a world of superheroes and uniqueness, and honestly, it’s doing it in one of the best possible ways. Other shows like One Punch Man also have a world full of superheroes, but My Hero Academia brings a unique twist to the School of Heroes and training, making it perfect for the shonen category.
Deku, the show’s protagonist, is a great character. Even after being born without superhuman strength or uniqueness, Deku didn’t give up on being good. Even after almost giving up his dream, he didn’t hesitate to try to protect Bakugo from real monsters. He is brave and truly deserves to be One for All, an extraordinary uniqueness passed down to him by All Might himself. Its quirks are perhaps the best in the entire series. It acts as a receptacle for all the habits held by its past users. Moreover, it can be passed on to anyone effectively and without much effort.
However, One for All has its drawbacks. If a hero already has a quirk, getting One for All will drastically reduce their lifespan. So it’s best to give it to a quirkless person like Deku. In this article, we will discuss how Deku meets all of his previous One for All users. So let’s jump right in.

Midoriya’s Path To Inherit One for All
Uniqueness or superpowers dominate the world of My Hero Academia. For some reason, everyone in the world is unique or another. There are superheroes and villains. Heroes are supported by a rating system where the strongest hero is named hero number 1. In this world full of oddities, Izuku Midoriya was born quirkless. She dreams of following in the footsteps of her idol All-Might, hero number 1. However, after finding out she doesn’t have a quirk, Izuku loses passion and gives up on her destiny for a long time.
Growing up, all he did was gather information about all the heroes like his fanboy. On a fateful day, he meets All Might. He soon learned that the hero himself had suffered severe damage in one of his past battles and was no longer able to maintain his strong form. His injury had severely restricted all of his Strength. However, seeing Izuku give her all to save her friend from monsters inspires her. He pushed further beyond his limits to save Izuku and Bakugo from the villain. Seeing Izuku’s great spirit, All Might tells him that he too can become a hero. With his quirk, One for All, All Might can make anyone a superhero because quirk can be inherited. So, after rigorous training, Izuku finally embodied the quirks of her own hero.
He successfully passed the trial to enter class 1-A of the prestigious hero school, The UA. He took the name Deku and, with his newfound power, defeated an enemy that was much stronger than before.
