    Why do people think they can only have one quirk? What about people like Shoto..?

    Spunky.

    Not people, but characters with authority in the subject. The question then is, is his considered 1 or 2 quirks? Also, if we go by the 2 theory, then maybe that's that max they may have seen naturally (one from the dad side and and the second from the mom side).

    But good point regardless.

    Yeah, but what if you breed the quirks across multiple generations.

    You have someone like Shoto who got a quirk from his mom and another from his dad, and they have a child with someone else who has a quirk from her mother and one from her dad. That child could then potentially have 4 quirks. And the next generation could have 8, and so on.

    However, we know children aren't guaranteed to have their parents quirk. I believe they implied Endeavor had several kids before getting "the result he wanted" with Shoto. So those other kids probably only had one of the two quirks. And of course Deku didn't get his mother's quirk.

    So the odds of that grandchild having all 4 quirks or the great grandchild having all 8 is probably highly unlikely.

    The correct way to use Shoto's quirk is just to use ice. It's fast, it traps movement, and it has a cone of effect. The only bad thing about it was that it freezes himself. Now that he's got heat to defrost, it grants him unlimited freeze. Just rock that and use attacks like the ice pillar he used against Deku in their fight.

    This is especially true if killing people is supposed to be bad. Endeavour grabbing the Nomu's head and burning the living fuck out of it was cool to watch, but not applicable to most flimsier villains. Burns are a pretty big deal. Bigger than this show seems to depict (on Stain).

    If it's not Isuzu-chan Mii~

    @Darth I think Endeavor 'kept going' because none of his kids had the perfect 50/50 ratio he was looking for. The dude was pretty much EV breeding.

    They kind of glossed over it in the anime, but his older brothers and sisters are weaker versions of either their father or their mother. As in, either his diminished the strength of hers, or hers diminished the strength of his.

    Shoto is the only one who maintained the strength of each quirk. It's not ratio so much as interfered or didn't.

    Well, I noticed his sister's hair was all white like his mother. I assumed she had all the ice powers and none of the fire.

    Episode 32

    __________________

    That's how you do filler. I would hesitate to put it at the cannon's level of quality, but it didn't forget what show it belonged to and played to the show's themes in a way that made it feel natural. Entertaining and I also enjoyed the guest hero's crew and continue to appreciate that people aren't idiots in MHA.

    It can't have been that good, because I immediately suspected it was filler.

    I really hope this was a one off and each member of Deku's class isn't going to get their own little filler arc here. The whole reason this show went on hiatus was so we wouldn't HAVE filler like Naruto or terrible pacing like One Piece...


    I just realized Stain totally looks like a Ninja Turtle. He's straight up got the same mask as them, and he has that super-wide toothy mouth that they do as well.

    For a filler episode it was alright, until we got to the Froppy portion... I didn't care for how that whole event went down. But can't complain much. I really like her character, so was hoping for something better. I liked seeing Uraraka training and I hope that's cannon (even if the scene itself wasn't).

    I don't think we'll get much more fillers than this, at least from the preview it seems like we're going back to the main story. I haven't read the manga this far, so can't tell for sure.

    Agreed with everybody. Filler sucks, but Froppy makes it okay.
    Also, if I had a squid face, Iīd be a villain, too. Thatīs just unfair.

    Also when you're named after a Lovecraft story.

    Although I assume Innsmouth is just his villain codename and not his real name.

    At least he fought against his destiny somewhat and didn't become a sex offender, despite having tentacles.

    MASSIVE FUCKING LORE DUMP!!

    So yeah, there is another Quirk involved in OfA that gives them the super strength. The "ability to store up power". It's just combined with a second quirk that lets you pass on a quirk.

    AfO is brutal. Not just giving others powers, but taking them as well. I'm sure there's some mechanic to it. Interested to find out what it is.

    I hope All Might is able to hold on at least until Midoriya graduates. It's only a 3 year program and we're already at the end of the first year.

    So yeah OFA does pass on additional quirks along with itself. The main power is to transfer Quirks and the second one is Super Strength. But...how many wielders of OFA were Quirkless? I mean All-Might used to be so wouldn't OFA have been wasted on him if the main goal was to stock-up power and Quirks? Unless merely passing it on strengthens all the Quirks it has.

    Two things Iīm not sure about:

    - when All for One "steals" abilities, is the original owner left without his ability? Probably, because that wouldnīt make much sense.
    - Similarily, when AfO gives an ability to somebody else, does he himself get still use it? Probably not, because then how did All Might defeat him, huh?

    And damn, Mineto, sooo close.

    I wonder if the AfO man can only hold a certain number of quirks before he needs to pass at least one on to somebody to steal a new one. After all, I seem to recall that the Nomus become as witless as they are because the human brain can't handle more than a few quirks before breaking.

    That disgusting dude deserves an earphone jack in his eye. Actually he should get a few in both eyes.

    That being said, I hope the summer camp really includes an obligatory onsen, beach, or equivalent episode.
