In the last chapter, Lady Nagant recalls the cost she endured for the greater good of superhero society. In Chapter 315, “Platitudes,” My Hero Academia challenges Deku’s dream of “reaching out” to villains. The cynical Nagant uses the instincts of a hero against Deku. She targets Chisaki with her sniper rifle. Deku activates the Quirk, Fa Jin. He combines the Quirks energy storage ability, with One For One at 45 %, and “centrifugal force.” This specific kind of force results in something fleeing from the center. What results in the move, Faux 100 Percent. Basically, Deku moves faster “than a speeding bullet.” It’s remarkable how much Deku has to keep in mind to effectively use multiple Quirks.

All For One’s failure clause

I would imagine that over time he will find it easier but it’s still impressive. I’ve commented in the past how Deku is a different kind of Shonen hero. He’s more intellectual, but it’s clear his power is going to come from difficult training and not the typical fighting genius we’re used to. Still having energy stored in his other leg, Deku hit Lady Nagant’s sniper arm with Faux 100 Percent: Manchester Smash. Nagant is amazed that not only did Deku save Chisaki, but he also didn’t hesitate despite Chisaki being an enemy. Deku catches Lady Nagant before she falls. He notes that if she was “really allied with All For One’s brand of evil . . . she would have shot at his lower body and stopped him cold.”

He asks her to fight on the side of the heroes. Before she can agree, she starts to glow. Suddenly, she explodes. All For One had added a “failure clause” to their contract. I question whether Deku would be able to talk his way into Tomura’s heart but My Hero Academia Chapter 315 may have complicated the issue. Deku was successful in convincing Lady Nagant to join him but All For One is never going to allow it. We could probably assume he has a similar clause with Tomura. Hawks arrives to catch his former master, it remains to be seen if Lady Nagant can be saved.

Top 5 Story-Breaker Powers in Anime or Manga

One of the issues that writers face when trying to establishing a power system is how strong should your character be. It’s a balancing act. If your main character is too strong they’ll have no challenge. If they’re too weak how can they win? If you want to have a series that’s entertaining you need to carefully consider this balance. Often creators will put some limitation, weakness or even depower characters. It can be clunky or convoluted. Ultimately, the “story breaker” power hinges mostly on the story told and not just the power itself. With the in mind, what are the top 5 story breaker powers in anime and manga:

I’m leaving Saitama (One Punch Man) out because his powers are suppose to be ridiculously strong.

5. Androids 17 and 18 have infinite energy (DBZ)

The two cyborgs have “infinite energy reactors” the give them limitless stamina. Furthermore they don’t age normally and can increase their strength through training. Furthermore they don’t use ki, making it impossible to detect them through normal means. The pair often let their opponents tire themselves out before defeating them.

4. Trafalgar Law’s Devil Fruit Ability (One Piece)

Law’s Room ability allows him to “control anything inside the sphere’s he creates.” He can “cut people to bits and rearrange them as he likes with the person still alive, swap around people and objects instantly, cut through whatever he wants including armored Haki and whole mountains, rip out organs, swap souls, and inflict an unhealing wound.” Law’s devil fruit drains his stamina, but it’s often to powerful to counter.

3. All For One (My Hero Academia)

All For One’s Quirk can “take, steal, mix, give, amplify and force others to use their quirks.” It’s suggested that he’s also immortal. While he can be defeated (Only All Might) he survives. All For One has it’s a weakness but they are mostly indirect. If he gives someone a quirk they may not be able to handle the power of becoming a mindless doll. The effectiveness of the quirk depends on the user. He can’t steal One For All, as it “can only be passed on if the present wielder wills it.”

2. Yhwach the Almighty (Bleach)

The King of the Quincies, Yhwach possesses “all Quincy powers, as well as the ability to give people power by lending them pieces of his soul.” He can “call back the soul shards at will, depriving the recipient of their power and life, to increase his strength.” He is able to steal the ” life and power from both Quincies and their enemies.” This power also allows him to choose who lives and dies. He also has a “Schrift ability,” the Almighty. This ability allows him “to change the entire future.” He can see and alter ALL possible futures. It should be noted that Beach has a number of broken characters and it takes three of them to kill Yhwach (Ichigo, Aizen, and Uryuu).

1. Madara (Naruto)

With his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, he can all the “convenient abilities in the series.” Then he gets the Rinnegan, which is considered “the most exalted eye among the “Three Great Dōjutsu.” The Rinnegan contains “extraordinarily powerful chakra and boasts enormous ocular power.” Those in possession of the Rinnegan “allows one to easily master any Jutsu as well as all five basic nature transformations.”

Furthermore, they can “wields the Rinnegan can utilize six abilities collectively known as the Six Paths Technique: controlling attractive and repulsive forces with the Deva Path; mechanically altering one’s body with the Asura Path; extracting souls through the Human Pathsummoning various creatures through the Animal Pathabsorbing chakra through the Preta Path; and access to the King of Hell through the Naraka Path. A seventh ability, called the Outer Path, is said to allow the user to preside over life and death, granting them the ability to revive the dead. Madara is shown to “summon meteors,” use “Wood Release.” At the time of the great ninja war, he was an immortal zombie with unlimited chakra.
