Abilities and Powers
What difference does it make if he was born without a Quirk? Deku exhibited numerous characteristics that made him appear heroic, such as his courage and selflessness in assisting and saving individuals in need. Prior to getting his Quirk, his biggest asset was his extensive mastery of basic Hero skills and strategies. These characteristics drew the notice of the mighty All Might, who gave Izuku his quirk One For All as his successor. He was later able to trigger the following peculiarities:
- Fa Jin- the oddity of One For All’s third user.
- Danger Sense- is the quirk of One For All’s fourth user.
- Blackwhip- Daigoro Banjo’s quirk, is the fifth user of One For All.
- Float- the quirk of Nana Shimura aka the seventh user of One For All.
- Smokescreen- the quirk of En, the sixth user of One For All.
- One nameless quirk—the second One For All user’s quirk.
Also, his skill of High Intellect is no joke either. He has a high IQ and is considered one of the few kids in his class who receives the best grades.
