In the universe of My Hero Academia, almost everyone is born with a Quirk, and some end up inheriting it too. A Quirk is a special ability that sets heroes apart from regular civilians. The Quirks can range from simple powers like super strength, speed, electrification, and endurance to more complex powers like creation, warping, shapeshifting, and energy projection. Here are the Top 5 Quirks in My Hero Academia that involve mass muscle strength-
Top 5 Quirks in My Hero Academia that involve mass muscle strength
5. Kendo Rappa’s Quirk
Kendo Rappa’s Quirk is called “Fastball Special” and it allows him to increase his muscle mass and physical strength, as well as the force of his punches by creating shockwaves. He can store the energy from his opponent’s attacks and release it in his next punch, greatly increasing its effect.
This is evident in the fight between him and Tamaki Amajiki, and Mirio Togata in a battle where he proves to be a formidable adversary. Kendo remains the sole user of this quirk, so we are yet to see another character use it in this in their own style of fighting.
4. Red Riot’s Quirk
Eijiro Kirishima, possessor of the Red Riot Quirk is a user of the Hardening Quirk that allows him to harden his body at will. The hardening can be applied to specific body parts or wholly, at the user’s discretion. His body can be compared to rock or steel, which gives him tremendous endurance and strength.
In his fight against Rikiya Katsukame, a villain from the Shie Hassaikai organization, Red Riot emerged victorious after using the Hardening Quirk to its fullest extent and creating a massive shield that protected him and his friends from the villain’s attacks.
3. Gigantomachia’s Quirk
Gigantomachia’s Quirk is called “Rampage,” and it allows him to grow to a massive size as his anger rises. For a villain with a short temper, he can quickly become the largest invincible enemy for the heroes.
Grown to full size, he is capable of destroying entire buildings and crushing vehicles as if they were made of paper. This Quirk also gives him immense durability and an impenetrable layer that can withstand the strongest of attacks.
He appears to be the only individual who possesses, making him an indispensable servant of All for One, the main antagonist of My Hero Academia.
2. Muscular’s Quirk
Muscular’s Quirk is called Muscle Augmentation which allows him to increase the size and strength of his muscles, which greatly enhances his physical vigor, speed, durability, and stamina.
- This makes him a frightening opponent point as he can easily overpower his enemies with ease by executing precise and powerful attacks.
- He can also use his Quirk to rapidly heal any injuries he sustains, as long as his muscle fibers are not completely torn.
This is also his weak point as any damage to his muscle fibers can limit his ability to use his powers effectively.
1. One for All
- One For All is a unique Quirk in that it is a combination of two Quirks: Stockpile and Transfer. The Stockpile Quirk allows the user to store an immense amount of raw power within their body.
- While the Transfer Quirk allows the user to pass that power on to others, resulting in a Quirk that becomes more powerful with each successive user.
It enhances the user’s physical abilities, making them stronger, faster, and more durable than their counterparts. It also grants its users the ability to use powerful energy blasts, which can be very helpful in battle. The known users of the One For All Quirk are Nana Shimura (who was the mentor of All Might and passed the Quirk on to him), All Might, and Izuku Midoriya.
Quirks are a hero’s identity in this anime, they are what sets them apart and an important fragment of their backstories. Most of the characters with Quirks that give them muscle strength end up becoming the strongest characters in the series. The pairing of Quirks in the numerous fights in the progression leads to some pretty intense rage moments that become the highlight and turning point of the anime.
