    We all know the most popular theory in the fanbase is dabi is toya and is the eldest brother
    But how much do you buy said theory?
    Sure he could be but at the same time the biggest grudge the fam has against endeavor was him putting there mom in a mental hospital
    We know something happened to toya given natsuo referencing him however it didn't seem that bad otherwise they would've made it a bigger deal

    After the recent Endy arc where Hori had to bullshit Enji being half blind when Dabi came?

    Pretty much confirmed.

    Endy put up his very first son for adoption. Abandoned him. Basically wasn't gonna bother raising/keeping any children until he got the right one. His wife put her foot down for keeping the rest of their children with Endy compromising on the matter

    Still would be very cold for this to be the reveal. After Endy's redemption arc and all...

    Id much rather... Endy tried making a clone at first, he is rich, but then decided to have children instead. His children took offence to the matter.

    As long as it is explained that Dabi's facial scars are a result of Endy surgically trying to install some type laser beam gun to his face then I will be happy

    50/50, is like the Obito reveal in that is so obvious that is hard to believe Horikoshi was so lazy.

    There's also the theory that Daby is using Toya's skin :catprone

    Or that he is just a collateral victim from Endeavor's crime fighting being all about beating the villains first and foremost :catprone

    I'm willing to bet that Dabi was the son. I think the whole burnt tissue isn't an accident though. I'm willing to bet that Dabi willingly did that to himself. We know he's a radical like Stain, and that he's mentally unhinged. Perhaps when he was young he became so disgusted with Endeavor and ran away from home, and while out he became obsessed with villains that look to reform society, and started becoming an obsessive radical, burning himself to prove his faith to the cause of changing the world.

    Dabi's burnt skin was probably him overusing his quirk imo.

    Some theory is he ran away from home, or the entire family thought he was dead.

    It's hinted too much so I'd be surprised if it doesn't turn to be true.
    What I'd like to know if those are skin grafts or burn scars, I honestly can't tell.

    It better be. You don't just constantly set yourself on blue flame and suffer zero consequence especially given how quirks work in this series. Plus the fact endeavor can have a literally heatstroke from spamming "regular" flame.
    Probably the former given how natsu reacted. I think he would've been way more hesitant and in turmoil bringing him up if he thought he was dead.

    Shoto was inches away from Dabi and his vision was fine and never recognized him tho

    Endeavor also recognized Dabi as a Villain he knew of later in that chapter

    I dont think its very "confirmed" as of now

    The thing is Endeavor probably didn't take a good look at Dabi's face, like why did Hori even make his vision blurry? Why is Endeavor outside when LoV gets attacked by the heroes back in the Bakugou rescue arc? :wow

    Shoto has always been isolated from his siblings since young, and may have never really met Dabi even if he saw him when he's young.

    There is reason Dabi addressed Todoroki like its personal or something, same goes with Endeavor.

    He wasnt allowed to play with them, he still saw them...

    Hed recognize his brother if he was literally nose to nose with him. If Dabi is later confirmed to be a Todoroki, they are gonna need a better explanation than this for why Shoto didnt recognize him when Bakugo was kidnapped.

    He saw a younger Dabi, and as I said, he might never got in contact and saw him from afar. The Dabi now has a scarred face, and already dyed his hair.

    Link doesn’t work.
    Also as HK said. Shouto didn’t even interact with his siblings till only recently and Dabi’s whole face is scarred which will make any attempts to recognize him hard.

    It's like, no one will say " I called it " because it's so fucking obvious it hurts to even think that someone would play that as a surprise.

    i'm willing to bet that one day Dabi will be the one the finish off Endeavor...

    not until 3rd year at UA though...when the new big 3 are ready to take the spotlight.

    Either dabi is his son which wouldn't surprise me or he is a fanatic tryning to copy endeavor and fell short maybe a worse off inasa and became this person to show up endeavor. The burns on his face kinda seem like he tried to mimic him. The reason I had my doubts it was his son because he should recognize how voice even if he didn't see him

    Isn't Dabis quirk cremation? Wouldn't it be crazy if Dabi actually has memory loss and won't remember that he is endeavors son until they do his bank story?

    Let's say he overused his quirk trying to impress endeavor and had a freak accident that burned his skin which then caused the memory loss and for him to be put up for adoption because he disappointed his dad

    You also have something overlooked by most witb the wind kid who hates Endeavor and Shoto. Says Shoto has the same cold eyes as Endeavor. Dabi does as well.
