In season 5 of My Hero Academia, Deku manifests Daigoro Banjo’s Black Whip quirk during combat training, but how exactly did Deku inherit the ability?
In the My hero academia Season 5 episode “That Which Is Inherited”, Izuku Midoriya (Justin Briner), better known by his hero name Deku, manifests Daigoro Banjo’s Black Whip quirk during combat training against Class 1-B, but How exactly did Deku inherit the new ability? When All Might (Christopher Sabat) explained in Season 1 that his One For All quirk is refined with each new generation of bearers, he had no idea when he transferred it to Deku as to how much the previous One For All possessors had grown stronger. power with its individual quirks.
While Deku initially had trouble managing the power of One For All, he teaches himself how to control it and shapes the power in his own unique way for the first four seasons, developing Full Cowling and the Air Force close combat technique. instead of copying All Might’s. Super strength. However, during a training session with Class 1-B, Deku returns to his early days of training when he acquires a new quirk that uncontrollably explodes black wires from his hand when he attempts to capture Monoma. After Shinso uses his quirky brainwashing to calm him down, Deku has a vision from Banjo, a former One For All user, who explains that the individual quirk factors from the predecessors are mixed into the core of One For All and that Deku will inherit. all six of its quirks. However, the episode does not directly address how Deku inherited Black Whip from him or for what purpose.

The answer appears to be that the original One For All wielder physically transferred Black Whip to Deku. When All Might revealed One For All’s origins in season 2, he explained that the villain All For One gave his ailing brother a build-up quirk against his will, which activated a useless inert quirk he already had within him. : the ability to transmit. quirks. The skills together make One For All a quirk that builds strength with each new generation of users. In the season 5 episode “Remnants”, the original One For All wielder visits Deku in a dream and touches his hand, which then begins to glow red when Deku awakens. Since Deku realizes that the spirits of previous One For All users live within power, the original wielder used his quirk to transfer Black Whip, a quirk that emits black tendrils from the user’s palms, into the hand of Deku when touched in the dream.
Deku may have been the first carrier to inherit the multiple quirks within One For All due to the evolution of quirks in society. In episode 12, Deku suggests that there might be some kind of external connection by theorizing with Bakugo and All Might about what might have sparked the Black Whip’s manifestation. That connection could be the Quirk Singularity, an in-universe theory that suggests quirks will only get stronger with each new generation and evolve to a point where they become unmanageable. In episode 10, Gran Torino tells All Might that Nana Shimura had a dream similar to Deku’s, in which a dark figure appeared to him and said: “The time has not yet come.“When the original wielder appeared to Deku in his dream, he informed Deku that”We are past the point of singularity.With this in mind, the quirks of One For All are emerging now because Deku will need additional power to combat the looming dangers posed by Quirk Singularity.
By having the original bearer begin passing on the quirks within One For All to Deku within season 5 of My hero academia, creates an interesting juxtaposition between All For One and his brother. While All for One used his quirk to distribute powers in order to gain followers and support his own agenda, his brother can now pass six new powers to Deku that will benefit the greater good. Since All For One may have contributed to the rise of Quirk Singularity by passing on quirks to others that evolved over time, the original wielder now has a chance to correct his brother’s misdeeds through Deku.
