Deku Quirk: All About Izuku Midoriya


Izuku Midoriya is the protagonist of the forever hyped anime “Boku No Hero Academia”. This anime has taken us through a rollercoaster of emotions throughout its run. For those of you who don’t know characters in this anime have special powers that are called quirks. And in this article we will be discussing and looking into the quirk of ” Izuku Midoriya” or as otherwise called ” Deku “

Deku’s quirk name was ” One For All ” This was passed down to him by AllMight ( The No.1 Hero ). This is a quirk that passes down the power from one person to another while accumulating raw power. This power also inherits the powers and quirks of the people who posses are given this quirk and then when the quirk is passed over again it would pass on the raw power along with the commutative strength of the quirks that were possessed by its previous users

Deku had to struggle quite a bit and is still learning to completely control this power so that he can use it optimally.

Deku has to focus on one of his limbs and unleash explosive attacks through them. These attacks are strong enough to make gusts of winds, break apart things, and jump high as possible. Moreover, for now, Deku is able to unleash the power of All For One in percentage as he can not use the power to its full potential for long not at least for now. And even when he does use the power in its full potential or anything near that he injures himself quite badly without a doubt. This is because the body of Deku is yet not strong enough to support the immense strength that comes naturally after adopting All Might’s power. A very important thing to note at this point is that Deky is struggling each and every new episode of this anime series, and would continue to do this until he eventually ends up becoming as powerful as All Might or even surpasses him as her. Now let’s take a look into some of the attacks of Deku

Attacks Of Deku

Detroit Smash

This is a punch that has been quite enhanced with One For All. The special thing about this attack is its raw power. This attack has been able to shatter windows break through floors

Delaware Smash

This is a trick that Deku uses while bringing all of the power to his forefinger and then shooting the power through flicking the finger. This attack has caused waves on the surface of the water and even caused waves in the air along with breaking big pieces of ice in his fight against Shoto Todoroki. Moreover, he can also use this power with his broken finger but this can be quite stressful on his finger until now but he has learned how to do this attack without getting his finger anymore till this far in the anime series

Black Whip

This is a power that one of that was passed down by Lariat, one of the previous users of One For All. This power allows Deku to control strays of dark energy while they form around his arms. These can be useful and helpful in grabbing objects that might be nearby or just moving and jumping around. This dark energy comes out of Deku in the form of ropes and contains all the quirk of ropes

Float ( Nana Shimura’s Quirk )

This is a quirk whose power are yet to be completely revealed but it mostly revolves around maneuvering oneself’s movement while in the air, more will be revealed about this quirk as the story goes on

Costume Gamma

This is the new hero costume of Deku which he modified as he shifted his fightin to more of a leg based one. as he wanted to protect his hands from any kind of damage if possible. Moreover, this costume also comes with upgraded gloves that help Deku make long-range wind-based attacks like “Delaware Smash Air Force”

Full Cowl

This is a technique created by Deku so that he can channel a part of One For All’s power and transfer it evenly throughout his entire body. This increases the overall mobility and agility of Deku and allows him to move somewhat similar to All Might himself. Moreover, this technique also helps in saving him from injuring his body whilst using All For One which is something that Deku is still working on. For now he has gone up to utilizing 5% percent of All Might’s raw strength but he is still working on the rest of the things

Some Results Of Deku’s Attacks

  • He destroyed a robot that was nearly the size of a building with a mere punch, this was done earlier in the anime series. And the punch ended up rendering his arm useless for quite some while after that
  • Destroying floors during the test whilst competing against Bakugo
  • Creating a small wave with just a fick of his finger and destroying pieces of ice the same way as he did in his fight against todoroki
  • He is physically strong enough to throw a few of his class fellow around without the use of his quirk ofcourse.
  • Jump high in the air whilst using full cowl
  • can create airwaves like the one he created against Gentle
  • Deku has also used 1,000,000% Detroit Delaware Smash during his fight against Muscular
  • ran faster then Hero Killer Stain
  • learns to react from GranTorino’s movements
  • And don’t forget the explosion from Bokugo
  • keeping on fighting with broken bones all along
  • surviving long falls

Weaknesses Of Deku For Now

  • Still can’t truly control the power of All Might. Moreover overusing his power can cause quite some damage to his body. The nurse has even told him that he can only bear to get his hands broken 2 to 3 more times
  • He can’t completely use the powers of his ancestors like Black Whip and Float
  • Overusing One For All can cause irreversible damage to his body.
  • One For All 100% causes extreme damage to his body, and he can’t use Full Cowl – 100% without Eri’s help.
  • Due to his frequent injuries, his arms are incredibly close to being permanently paralyzed from muscle failure. He only has 2-3 more bone-breaking attacks in him before his arms go completely numb.
  • Black Whip is hard to control, and he can only use it for a short time before it starts causing him pain.
