Does Deku have multiple quirks?

Does Izuku Midoriya aka Deku have multiple quirks? if so how many quirks does Deku have? Hello everyone and welcome to MyAnimeGo. There have been so many questions about My Hero Academia we decided to answer some more.

The season finale, episode 88 of My Hero Academia 4, definitely left us on a cliffhanger, with the newest twist card in its deck.

Deku has a mysterious vision where he see the previous holders of his quirk and encounters the first user of One For All. Their hands meet and Deku suddenly awakens with glass breaking around him.

My Hero Academia has succeeded again and again at flipping the script on how it interprets the superhero tropes and has continued to surprise us the readers/watchers with all its twists.

what does Deku having a dream of the former One For All users mean?

A lot of questions and theories about Izuku Midoriya’s inherited quirk One For All as definitely come out after this season. Questions like;

  • Does Deku have multiple quirks?
  • How much power does Deku really have?
  • How many quirks does Deku have?

Deku is definitely someone with a lot of mystery, till now we have not met his father and there was a theory his quirk was stolen by the doctor that looks surprisingly like the doctor who took care of All For One. He was one of the first characters we wrote a fan theories about when we first start:

Who is Izuku Midoriya’s dad?

why did this happen right after his vision?

What does it all mean? I am sure you are asking yourselves right after My Hero Academia 4, well at MyAnimeGo we have the answers for anyone who has not been following the manga or want to clarify some details on Deku’s quirk.

So let’s get started answering your questions.

Does Deku have multiple quirks?

The short answer is Yes and No. Not a straight forward answer for does Izuku Midoriya aka Deku have multiple quirks? but that’s because One For All is quiet a complex quirk in away. And depending on how you look at it, it can be a yes or no response.


What is One For All?

One For All is an emitter type and transferable Quirk that can be passed on from one user to the next. But this doesn’t fully explain just what is One For All.


One For All is actually capable of three things so far that we know;

  1. It is a Power stockpiling Quirk
  2. Manifest the original quirk of previous users
  3. and the third thing is something we all know Quirk Transference.

So with its second attribute, you could think of One For All has one quirk or currently six quirks.

One For All has one quirk

You can look at One For All has one quirk since all the quirks passed down by the previous holders of One For All are accepted and moulded into the core of One For All, becoming part of the quirk.


Which if you look at it this way would explain why the quirks that have manifested are more powerful in Deku than in their previous users.

Example of this is in Chapter 213, were Deku activates Daigoro Banjo quirk that creates dark energy from his arms — the Black Whip quirk, in response to Izuku’s thought of capturing a classmate during a training exercise.

It was noted that Daigoro Banjo quirk was a lot stronger in Deku than it was with its original user, which would prove it has gone under some kind of modification and merge with the quick One For All, which is a Power stockpiling Quirk. Proofing that all the quirks are in one quirk.

One For All has six quirk

One for All’s previous users gift their quirks to their successors during the transfer process, so they can be seen has individual quirks.


While it was the first user’s Transference Quirk and the quirk force on him by All For One the Power stockpiling Quirk that both combined to create One For All, and the other are added later so they can be seen has individual quirks.


If we look at it like that and as long as none of the other One For All holders was quirkless like All Might (Toshinori Yagi) and Deku (Izuku Midoriya)

  1. First User – All For One
  2. Second User – unknown quirk
  3. Third User – unknown quirk
  4. Fourth User – unknown quirk
  5. Daigoro Banjo – Blackwhip
  6. Sixth User – unknown quirk
  7. Nana Shimura – Float
  8. Toshinori Yagi – Quirkless
  9. Izuku Midoriya – Quirkless

But there is another way some people also think of Deku’s quirk has seven, they take Transference Quirk and Power stockpiling Quirk also has individual quirks One For All is like a plural sense of calling the quirks.

So the next question I have been seeing:


What quirks does Deku have?

Deku has six quirks.

He has so far been able to access the quirk:


The quirk of the 5th user of One For All, Daigoro Banjo allows the user to create tendrils of dark energy from their arms, helping with grappling and increasing the user’s mobility.



Quirk of the 7th user of One For All, Nana Shimura master and predecessor of All Might allows the user to levitate.


With four more quirks still hidden to him, Izuku has gone from Quirkless to being one of the most dangerous and powerful people on the planet 

I can’t wait to see what type of hero, Deku becomes with all the great power that has been given to him and read more of his story to becoming the number one hero.


Thanks for reading, let me know what you think of his quirks and what is other powers could be I would love read them till next time.

Keep being the best you, you can be.
