Hey guys, I’m Spadekun, and today I’m here with a really intriguing and very convincing fan theory about My Hero Academia. Please note that this is just a theory and not a spoiler because this has not been confirmed in the manga or the anime. So without further ado, Let’s begin Dekus Quirk.
Dekus Quirk | Deku may have been born with a Quirk:
Many believe that someone must have tampered with Dekus quirk, and the key to this theory is the Doctor. Back in his childhood, when Deku waited for his quirk to manifest, but it did not. Deku’s mom took him to the Doctor who showed them an X-ray of Deku having two joints in his pinky toes. Since humans had no use of the two joints in their pinky toe. So those without it were considered to be an evolution and could thus, use various quirks. So someone with two joints in their pinky toes, like Deku, cannot manifest their quirks. Well at least that’s what the doctor said.
This was until we realized something really intriguing. Deku’s doctor was the same person working with All For One, the mastermind behind the League of Villains in chapter 59 of the manga. Even in the anime, the doctor was voiced by the same voice actor. As we know, All For One’s quirk allows him to steal other people’squirkss. So, in that case, it would be safe to assume that the Doctor was working with him to help him steal really useful quirks from young children. So the theory goes like the Doctor helped All For One steal Dekus quirk, and simply lie about him being quirkless.
The fact that both of Deku’s parents had quirks, makes it more unlikely for him to be born quirkless. As for what the quirk might have been, it would simply depend on Deku’s mutation. But since both of his parents had undergone mutation when they were born. It makes things highly unlikely for Deku to not undergo mutation. If even one of his parents were qurikless, Deku being born without a quirk would have been highly genetically possible.
The X-ray and the second joint
If it is universally true that having a second joint means being born quirkless, and if Deku indeed had a second joint. Then that’s all for the discussion. But what if Deku was never born with a second joint? What if the doctor somehow switched the X-ray of Deku’s foot with someone else’s. Then it might have been possible that Deku was born with a quirk without realizing it.
Then there arises a question that how can someone not realize having a quirk, that is before it was stolen. Well, it depends on the nature of the quirk. As for instance, All For One’s brother thought that he was born quirkless. This was until he realized that he had a quirk which was lying dormant in his body and could be transferred to other. This quirk was called One For All. So with that said, maybe Dekus quirk was something which only manifested when his life was in danger. And since his life has never been in danger in his childhood, that justifies why he never knew he had a quirk.
And again, what if the doctor abducted children with special quirks and turned them into Nomus. For instance, there was a winged child who was friends with Bakugou and Deku when they were the kid. In My Hero Academia extras, it was mentioned or hinted that this kid(who was the grandson of Deku’s doctor) was the winged Nomu who carried Deku away in Stain arc.
The strong implication is that this guy was turned into a Nomu by All For One. Again, this is just theories that many fans have shared and I too find very interesting and are not confirmed.
Thanks For reading the theory on Deku’s Quirk.
