Film Theory: My Hero Academia - All Might's SECRET Quirk!

    A few thoughts that I'm excited to discuss:
    - As far as "Why wouldn't Deku inherit the same transformation power?" As I understand it, One for All isn't about actual POWERS getting passed down, but rather storing ENERGY. Despite being the eighth in line, All Might is just really strong -- he doesn't really demonstrate a lot of other quirks/powers like you would expect. That would imply either A) everyone who came before him had the quirk of "Super Strength" which seems unlikely or B) that One for All is more about absorbing the ENERGY of the users who came before and adding it up in the next person, almost as if you're adding the power levels from Dragon Ball Z.

    - Regarding the "I'm always flexing" explanation from Episode 2...he still needs a certain amount of energy to flex. That's' why he's only able to do it for a few hours and why, as One for All fades away, he can no longer "flex." But wouldn't that still classify it as a Transformation Quirk? His body IS changing. It just feels like an incomplete explanation...It could also be that he's lying. At this point in the series, Deku is still just a random kid, not a candidate for One for All, so presumably All Might wouldn't want to give away too much information. That's also why he avoids the specifics around where he got his injury from.

    - It's also clear that All Might's normal form is his skinny form. As we see in the training clips of young All Might, he was never naturally that buff. And that's him using One for All at nearly 100% right off the bat? Maybe I'm just reading too far into that moment.

      I’m beyond late here, but, if you listen to the anime, the user of OFA makes it their own, perhaps that All Might modified OFA for him to make him simply stronger and more buff, making him have a different form, Deku probably wasn’t able to use the same form because his body was “Different” probably because Deku rushed, as you said, perhaps that it flows through All Mights body. Not saying your theory is wrong or bad, but it’s a good chance that it is wrong.

      Spoiler alert if you haven't read the manga .

      In the latest chapter Deku gets a third quirk from one of the predecessors of One For All . It's unclear what it was but he was shooting off this black substance that looked like lightning , or Venom's black tendrils . So One For All isn't just 2 quirks . It's actually 3 confirmed quirks with potentially 6 more on the way from the other users , not including All Might .

      I think 8:25 is the best foreshadowing you're going to get with this theory, until more information comes out

          Just letting you know Deku doesn’t actually use 100,000% power the author wrote that it was just for emphasis, and to make the scene more epic

            Now let's say this: In the manga(chapter 212-214), it says that "the pre successors of One For All also stockpile their own original QUIRKS into it." And one of the 8 pre successors of the One For All Quirk claims that *out of 8 successors, only 6 has been stockpiled, waiting for Deku to discover*. So it wouldn't make sense, since in the manga, for sure only Nana doesn't have a Quirk. So will the same thing goes to All might as well, since he's the eighth user, and should've also stockpile his own original quirk into it?

              Ummmm if the 1 4 All user's goal is to defeat All 4 1, y did All Might defeat him in the first place?

                Plus when the so called "embers" burned out he could still sustain that form because he said that he can't use all of it he can still activate it, it just doesn't exactly do anything

                  What if the quirk was just too weak back when all might inherited it? We don't see any mention of any famous or notable person before all might to have super strength, so it might've just been that the 100% that all might inherited could be used from the get go

                    I have something to say um he was quirk less he got one for all and then got muscle form its him using his power at his full extent plus the injury he sustained from All for one made him unable to sustain this form so these form is matched to one for all

                        Taking the latest chapters into account, together with the movie where he was shown to be healthier than when he met Deku, I think that the musclemass expansion Quirk Mat is implying here is the Quirk of a previous One For All user that Toshinori has access to via OFA.

                              just imagine, if that guy Muscular (Deku's minor antagonist with Muscle quirk) was actually a good guy and Allmight decided to inherite his power to him...omg...

                                All might doesn't have a second quirk because when midoriya activates one for all lighting comes that full cowl mode,on all might he gets buff why? because when you pass one for all to someone it becomes stronger

                                  What happens if the one for all quirk evolves of time and for the user? Like when it gets passed on or when the user has had it for a while, or maybe develops?

U're just repeating phrases, you've heard. Like "we don't talk about DBGT. You just wanna be relatable. And you really are. Love your work & i can really relate to most of the things you said. That's why i hate you. You just kiss the ass of your community, to get more and more of that preciouss youtube-money. And you really earn it😊👍 i mean, look at the quality of your videos, it's just awesome. And the facts are soo extremely well & carefully researched. So get a hobby you nerd, what's wrong with you, spending your whole time with stupid videogames and films?!
                                                    In this sense: keep up the good work and delete your stupid channels.
