All Might

Symbol of Justice and Hope

The highest ranked hero in the earth and a colonnade of hope and justice for heroes everywhere to follow.
After an intense battle with a unsafe super villain, he can but be his heroic self for up to three hours a day. After he hits his time limit, he becomes a lanky, skeletal man who constantly coughs up blood. Only a select few staff at U.A. know this, and even fewer know the true nature of his Quirk. At the start of the manga, Midoriya proves himself to All Might and inherits “One For All”.

Tropes exhibited by All Might include:

  • Big Good
    The number 1 hero in the earth! A pillar of hope and justice for the world, with many aspiring to follow his case.
    Fittingly plenty, he’southward thus the only one who matches the
    Big Bad
    in terms of power.
  • All a Office of the Task
    He has a lot of wisdom and experience when it comes to being a hero, and so him being a teacher is fitting.
  • Almighty Janitor

  • Badass Teacher
    At first, he seemed like he was merely mentoring Midoriya, simply he becomes a teacher at the Hero Academy, then he now teaches classes of students forth with Medoria.
  • Badass Transplant
    Due to a certain battle a few years prior to the story beginning, he has been weakening, and is even forced to take on a weakened state for most of the time during the 24-hour interval. Then, he meets Midoriya and after seeing his determination and backbone to be a hero,
    he trains the kid for 10 monthes and bestows his quirk upon him.
  • Badass Abnormal
    His quirk is special even among all the quirks in beingness in that it can exist passed down from 1 person to another exterior of simple genetics. It gets more abnormal when you lot observe out that he
    has been injured and is only able to concord his heroic form a few hours each twenty-four hours, and the rest of the time he takes on a weakened form. But the biggest abnormality almost him is that by the time of the story,
    80% of the population has been born with a quirk, simply he and later on Midoriya are amidst the twenty% NOT born with a quirk, simply both receive information technology via it beingness passed downwards.
  • The Ace
    All Might was a straight example of this and continues to be a unique i, even though having been severely injured gave him a time limit on his powers. Gran Torino deconstructs this, noting that he took to Ane For All much more easily than Midoriya did, which caused his teaching methods (which worked for him) to be less effective for his protege.
  • Affectionate Parody
    Of classic superheroes.
  • All-American Face
    While he’southward Japanese, he’s definitely a send up to this blazon of graphic symbol. He’s blonde with bluish optics (typical anime depiction of a western greenhorn), massively vitrify when powered upwards, wears a costume with a ruddy, white, and blue colour scheme, and constantly goes on about justice. Hell, 1 of his attacks was called Texas Smash.
  • Badass Instructor
    Becomes a teacher at U.A.. He will also give a beating to anyone who tries to brand his students suffer.
  • Beware the Nice Ones
    Is well-nigh always smiling and is the type to e’er lend a helping mitt to anyone in need. The key word is almost. If you somehow manage to become him to stop grin, you know you’re in for information technology.
  • Black Eyes of Crazy
    Subverted since he’s not remotely evil, but his eyes are black with brightly glowing bluish irises.
  • Blood From the Oral cavity
    Happens to him frequently in his weakened form.
  • Body Horror
    His weakened form is extremely emaciated and constantly airsickness claret.
  • Brains and Brawn
    When he was paired up with Sir Nighteye, he was the brawn of the duo.
  • Brought Down to Normal
    Since giving Midoriya 1 For All, he finds that he’s slowly losing his power over time, and it volition eventually end working completely. This finally happens at the cease of affiliate 94 after using the last vestiges of One For All to finally KO All For One.
  • Calling Your Attacks
    In reference to how he’s based off of silver-age western superheroes, he shouts out the names of American states and landmarks. He doesn’t always get it completely right, though.
  • The Cape
    Definitely. Well-nigh to the bespeak of parody.
  • Grab Phrase
    “I’m here!/I have arrived!” while making a Dynamic Entry and “Plus Ultra!” when trying to be inspiring or when showing off.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome
    Played partly for laughs, only prior to the U.A. villain invasion, All Might stepped in to defuse a tense hostage state of affairs, and then moved on to stop a hit and run driver, and then… well, his commute to work ended up taking up all of the time he had that day for the use of his powers.
  • Death Glare
    He gives off an incredibly strong one, whether information technology exist against villains who threaten his students, or even when he is acting out the part of a villain in Class-A’due south exercise against Bakugo and Izuku. When you lot see that glare, RUN.
  • Deuteragonist
    While the series as a whole is a Coming of Age story for Deku, All Might’s influence and grapheme drives the story but as much as Deku’s journey does.
  • Eagleland
    Predominantly because of his The Silver Historic period of Comic Books traits, he tends to exhibit signs of the first type. For example his workout plan for Midoriya invokes the classical American Dream in its proper name… and the notion that those born with nothing, can one twenty-four hours attain the greatest success if they piece of work difficult to earn it. Additionally, as mentioned, most of his attacks Theme Naming for states or major U.Southward. cities, typically “Ten Smash”.
  • Engrish
    In the anime, he peppers his sentences with English words and phrases.
  • Expy
    Of Gold Age and Silvery Age Flight Bricks. His ethos is almost straight-up
    Superman, the nature of his Quirk and backstory are rather similar to
    Helm Marvel, and his appearance could perchance best be described as “Miracleman with Hair Antennae.”
  • A Father to His Men
    He technically has only 1 human being, Midoriya, but their human relationship is very akin of a male parent and son. All Might oftentimes treats and trains Midoriya in a manner similar to how a stern simply loving father would do to his son, considering that Midoriya’s real father never appeared in the whole series, and only mentioned once, All Might often borders Parental Substitute.

    • He tried to pull this off with Bakugou in one case, with predicable results.
  • Game-Breaking Injury
    All Might suffers from this as five years before the main story, he took a devastating striking from an unknown villain, which nearly killed him.

When he powers down, he looks similar a emaciated husk of his sometime self that constantly keeps cough up blood. Regardless, he keeps up his hero duties, with only Midoriya and a few of the peak officials knowing well-nigh what happened, as he doesn’t wish for people to lose faith in heroes similar him.

All For 1 explains that this is because All Might is now exclusively using the remnants of Ane For All every bit opposed to the total ability he once had earlier and the more than he uses information technology the weaker his ability becomes. At cease of his fight with All For One in affiliate 94, All Might has now permanently used upwardly the terminal remaining dregs of One For All.
  • Incurable Cough of Death
    Equally a result of his Game-Breaking Injury, he is practically emaciated when his powers are not in use and is decumbent to hacking up blood.

Seeing the powerless Midoriya blitz said villain in an try to salvage Bakugou convinced All Might to intermission his limit regardless of the risk to himself to salve the day.

  • Non Standard Graphic symbol Design: To go with his
    Large Ham

Ironically this likewise means despite being well-nigh inspired by a comic volume art way it means he looks a more like a villain or morally dubious individual than he is intended to.

All Might is for all his speed and strength nevertheless only a man, he tin’t be everywhere and for every state of affairs he made meliorate there were hundreds he could do nothing for, merely because he wasn’t there. This is where being
    The Paragon
    is a double-edged sword, for all that he inspires to make others similar him, he is seen every bit The Hero of the globe, so when he doesn’t show up to save the day it can brood resentment
  • Only Known past Their Nickname
    Sort of. “All Might” is his hero name; but even in-universe nobody knows his existent name, except for Gran Torino.
  • OOC Is Serious Business
    When he arrives during the Villain Alliance’due south assault, All Might is non smiling. Even though he’due south in hero-way, he isn’t grinning.

    Beats Noumu past punching him 300 times.
  • Recoil Boost
    New Hampshire Smash.

  • Screw Destiny
    When Sir Nighteye predicted his demise (and he had never predicted wrong), All Might quite literally said that he would just change his own fate.
  • Showy Invincible Hero

  • Sir Swearsalot
    In the English dub at least, All Might actually has the foulest mouth relative to all the characters. He isn’t constantly swearing, but he is the merely one who e’er says “shit”.

  • Super Forcefulness
    One For All. The forcefulness boost also provides Super Speed and In a Single Leap.
  • Tragic Keepsake
    “One For All” acts as this every bit it was entrusted to him by his now-deceased mentor and friend Nana Shimura.

    • All Might: Yous may have heard these words before, simply I’ll teach you what they really mean! Go across! PLUS! ULTRA!!!
  • Vague Age
    How old is All Might? Mid-twenties, thirties, possibly approaching xl? The manga never makes it clear and the fact that he looks like a teenager in his weaker grade only adds more than fuel to the burn down.
  • What the Hell, Hero?
    He gives one to Midoriya for going with some students to rescue Bakugo despite the risk of injury, even striking him with a Texas Smash in his weakened course. Downplayed as All Might and so turns the scolding into a So Proud of Y’all spoken communication promising to be a better teacher now that he no longer has 1 For All anymore.

    While he claims this is the instance, he has both dodged questions on multiple occasions and asked someone to prevarication on his behalf on at least one occasion.
  • Earth’s Strongest Human being
    The highest-ranked hero. Even though he has weakened a bit in the concluding years, he still managed to go on the top spot.
  • Your Days Are Numbered
    Nighteye urged him to retire because his Foresight saw All Might dying a gruesome death quondam. And while at that place’s some nuance to Nighteye’s Foresight, it’s never wrong earlier; every bit of current, All Might has between i to ii years to alive.

One of the few people on the planet unlucky enough to have no Quirk. His proper name tin can also be read equally “Deku”, so his friends ofttimes call him by that. He was relentlessly bullied growing upwards because of his lack of powers, especially by his former friend Bakugou.

One For All allows him to employ incredible super strength to overcome diverse obstacles, just his body is still non suited to its overwhelming power.
