MASSIVE MY HERO ACADEMIA SPOILERS.
To anyone watching My Hero Academia, we have heavy hearts and are feeling the burden of what just happened. All Might, Toshinori Yagi. The 8th user of One for All, has ended his career. So today, to honor the greatest hero in the My Hero Academia universe, I’m going to go over the top 5 moments of screentime for The Symbol of Peace.
1. Saving Bakugou
Back in episode 2 of the anime, All Might defeated a slime villain from killing Bakugou after Young Midoriya inspired him to move. He burned through his health to do so, but he saved Bakugou’s life and made it clear that the symbol of peace is un moving.
2. Saving those people in that fire long ago.
Something not necesarly done in the time frame of the series, but something that was done long ago was All Might saving so many people from that fire and that fight with that villain long ago, the smile on his face was broad and he truely was the symbol of peace.
3. Defeating the Nomu at the USJ
All Might below his peak is still a force to be reckoned with. Defeating a Nomu designed to be as anti-all might as they come, but with 300 mighty blows All Might defeated it and ended Shigaraki’s game for that day.
4. Passing One for All on.
Perhaps one of the most heoric moments he did, was ensuring the future long past his reigh was secure. Saying those simple words to Midoriya “Young Man, you too could become a hero.” and offering him the power of One for All, All Might secured the future of his legacy and also ensured the future of hero kind and the symbol of peace.
5. The United states of smash.
Bloody, beaten, reduced to his skeleton true form. All Might was on his last legs. The flame inside him douosed and ready to die, Victory almost certainly in the hands of All for one. Toshinori Yagi, the symbol of peace, the 8th successor to One for All. Dealt his enemy an all-mighty and consequencal blow, flaring the power up inside him once more, he smashed his enemy in the face with every last ash and flame of One for All in the heroic and awesome United States of Smash, a move that once his enemy was on the ground from it’s force blew back and created a tornado from the shock. With that he finally said goodbye to One for All. Finally, as All for One is being taken into custody, he holds his hands out, and to all the camera’s of the world goes “Now, now it’s your turn”. What seams like a sentence to all villains across the world, is actually a passing of the torch to Midoriya as the true, symbol of peace.
And with that, its over, the era of the symbol of peace is gone. Everyone knows it, let’s see where the world of My Hero Academia takes us now.
