WARNING: The next accommodates spoilers for My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 22, “Sad Man’s Parade,” now streaming on Funimation, Crunchyroll and Hulu.
Till now, My Hero Academia’s villains have been simply identifiable. Tomura Shigaraki and the League of Villains have been the group to root in opposition to for many of the anime, however Season 5’s My Villain Academia arc appears to have turned this on its head. The continued storyline pits the League of Villains in opposition to the Meta Liberation Military for his or her very survival. They’ve confirmed themselves as much as the duty earlier than however they’re now up in opposition to their largest risk but: Re-Destro.
The Meta Liberation Military’s chief presents himself as defenseless, however this could not be farther from the reality. Re-Destro was fairly content material to let his Military tear Shigaraki’s group aside, however Twice’s awakening shortly shifted the tide within the League’s favor. Their numbers shortly overwhelmed the Liberation Military, aggressively taking the battle to Re-Destro’s dwelling entrance. This growth compelled the mysterious chief to enter the fray himself.
Even on his personal, Re-Destro proved greater than able to dealing with the physique doubles Twice created, destroying most of them with lightning-fast actions and repelling each assault with a strong wave from his enlarged fist. He continues to lazily fend off the Shigaraki clone with a single fist and finally overpowers him. Re-Destro’s show of power proves his Stress Quirk is nothing to be sneezed at, however how precisely does it work in My Hero Academia?
The Stress Quirk permits Re-Destro to transform any emotion that causes him stress into uncooked energy. “Negative” emotions like worry, hazard or anger solely serve to extend his power, making him an extremely tough opponent to finest as he grows stronger the longer a battle rages on.
As he is displayed, Re-Destro can focus his energy right into a single a part of his physique to significantly improve its power. No matter half he enlarges retains all its dexterity and will be managed the identical as a standard limb. With only a wave of his enlarged arm, Re-Destro creates a gust of wind similar to Deku’s Delaware Smash — with none danger to his personal physique.
A melee fighter like Re-Destro would appear like a straightforward win for Shigaraki together with his Decay Quirk, however that is not the case. Re-Destro has achieved his homework on the League of Villains. He was in a position to listing the specifics of Twice’s Quirk and was aware sufficient to pin the clone Shigaraki’s arms to his aspect, stopping him from activating his Quirk.
Re-Destro comes nose to nose with the unique Tomura Shigaraki in My Hero Academia‘s subsequent episode and their match-up is bound to be thrilling. It is unlikely Shigaraki can cope with the Meta Liberation Military chief’s full energy alone, however we won’t rule out the likelihood that the League’s head should have a few tips up his sleeve.
