My Hero Academia: 10 Things You Should Know About Shigaraki Tomura’s New Powers
In My Hero Academia, Shigaraki Tomura is the main villain, and there are 10 things about his new powers fans must know.
Shigaraki Tomura is the main antagonist of Kohei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia manga where he leads the Paranormal Liberation Front, formerly known as the League of Villains. Being the successor to All For One, Shigaraki was bound to become powerful and as the events of the war arc slowly unfold, fans are getting a taste of what he’s truly capable of doing.
Shigaraki’s new powers make him essentially invincible in battle with barely anyone being able to put to a fight against him.
10 Has Tremendous Physical Strength
Shigaraki Tomura is no longer the frail child that he once was. After undergoing a gruesome surgery to gain immense powers, he’s also gained fascinating strength. Surprisingly, this strength was compared by Endeavor to that of All Might.
Although it’s not exactly as high as All Might’s physical strength, what’s shocking is that he was able to manifest this power without even having any Quirks active.
9 Has All For One
All For One is quite easily one of the strongest known Quirks in the entire My Hero Academia series. It was formerly wielded by All For One himself, but now, its power has been passed down to Shigaraki Tomura.
Prior to the Kamino incident, All For One used the duplicate ability to keep a copy of the power within himself as he prepared for his successor to gain further powers.
8 Has Super Regeneration
Super Regeneration is not something that My Hero Academia fans are new to. This power has been seen come into play time and again with the USJ Nomu, and then several other Nomus as well.
Shigaraki Tomura gained access to this power his All For One. As seen during his fight against Endeavor, he was able to regenerate from the intense burns that his Hellflame Quirk left within a matter of seconds.
7 Has Radio Waves
Along with All For One, Shigaraki Tomura gained the power to control radio signals as well, thanks to the Radio Waves Quirk. This was first seen during Shigaraki’s awakening when he used this Quirk to jam all the communicators and throw the Heroes’ plan into disarray.
Although not as strong as some of his other Quirks, Radio Waves is quite a useful ability to have for him.
6 Has Search
Search was originally the Quirk of Ragdoll, one of the members of the Wild Wild Pussycats. After All For One stole her Quirk, it was eventually passed down to Shigaraki.
With its powers, Shigaraki can identify any of his targets from great distances and even find out what their weaknesses are. Truly, it’s a terrific ability to have up one’s sleeve.
5 Has Air Cannon
Air Cannon was a Quirk ability that was seen used by All For One in his fight against All Might in Kamino. Now, the Quirk is in the possession of Shigaraki Tomura, which means he has free access to its powers.
Using this Quirk, Shigaraki can shoot shockwaves of air at his targets. When All For One used them against All Might, the latter struggled to keep up with its power.
4 Can Fly
Flight is a very rare ability in My Hero Academia, and only a few are capable of using it, such as Hawks. All Might was able to do something similar, although in his case, he would use his power to jump in a way that it appeared as if he was flying.
Since Shigaraki’s physical strength is comparable to that of All Might, he’s capable of doing the same thing and soar through the skies as if he’s flying.
3 Can Control Decay
After Shigaraki’s clash against Rikiya Yotsubashi in Deika City, he’s gained full control over the powers of the Decay Quirk. Its strength is such that it can decay anything within a matter of seconds, including things that aren’t in direct contact with Tomura’s hand.
Furthermore, Shigaraki can now choose what to decay and what to spare from its rotting powers, as seen when he destroyed half a city, and yet the Nomus in the laboratory were spared from being decayed.
2 Is The Current Strongest
Among all the characters in My Hero Academia right now, Shigaraki Tomura is the strongest currently. In his fight against the Number One Hero, Endeavor, it was painfully apparent that Shigaraki was levels above him.
Even with Aizawa nullifying his Quirk, Shigaraki was able to overwhelm Endeavor rather easily, which just goes to show that he’s the strongest in the story right now.
1 Will Surpass All For One
All things considered, Shigaraki Tomura is incredibly powerful and with each passing arc, he keeps getting stronger. He’s already extremely close to the level of All For One, if not already on it.
In the future, he’s definitely going to surpass All For One and become the greatest Villain in the entire story, just as Izuku is likely to become the greatest Hero in the story.
