Returning to the present, the battle between All For One and Dynamight reaches its climax. 

  • All For One unleashes his ultimate attack, “Omni-Factor Unleash: All For One Goal.” 
  • This attack as powerful as it sounds activates every single Quirk and Quirk Factor in his possession. 

However, Dynamight, with his trademark intelligence, has prepared a cunning counter-attack. 

He reveals that he secretly planted explosive sweat drops inside All For One‘s mouth during their previous encounter, waiting for the moment to detonate. All For One is thrown off guard with this unexpected move, causing him to fall to the ground.

Bakugou, ever the confident hero, reveals his plan to All For One. He explains that he doesn’t need a multitude of Quirks like his opponent; his single Quirk, “Explosion,” is all he needs. Meanwhile, in the vestige world, the tide turns against All For One. His anger and desperation have caused him to lose control of the Quirks and vestiges he has accumulated.  He shrinks back to a child-like form, symbolizing his defeat against teamwork. Vestige of Hawks’s quirk takes this moment to taunt All for One to remind him that the reason for his downfall is his own choices.

Art style

What’s best about this chapter is we will finally get to see a double page spread featuring All Might, Mitsuki, Masaru, and Yoichi witnessing Bakugou’s victory (As per the leaks, this chapter will have 2 double spreads). Despite having a 7 page muda for Bakugo, this chapter is expected to blow up with the defeat of AFO. The art style will also surpass MHA’s all the previous chapters.


My Hero Academia Chapter 409 will finally put an end to the most anticipated battle of All For One against the Bakugou and friends. With Bakugou’s intelligence, courage, and determination, culminating we will get to see him achieve his well’deserved victory. With All For One defeated, the heroes can now look forward to a brighter future, but the fight for justice continues. The question remains, what challenges lie ahead, and who will rise to meet them?
