Deku was born with a quirk, but it was STOLEN?!

    Didn't watch the video because it looked stupid but yea I've read theories about him having a quirk and maybe it was stolen by AFO or even weirder ideas how Deku's Mom genetically took it out or even that it has to do with his Father taking it away from his son for either nefarious or protective reasons

    I do enjoy the REALLY farfetched ideas like Deku does have a Quirk but his quirk is to bring people together or he is attractable/charismatic aka Naruto Talk-No-Jutsu or even that is quirk is basically like a Fallout stat 10/10 LUCK so he always wins in the end due to a Quirk that you can't see/hear/smell type of deal. It is a very "thought" kind of quirk

    Either way I enjoy reading all types of shit like that

    Its a popular enough theory, I'm willing to believe it if they decide to go down that route. AFO has forcible quirk activation, even if someone seems quirkless he can see what quirk they have. Also the pinky toe theory seems to be bullshit, its more correlation then causation, its not set in stone.

    I prefer if he was born quirkless, but who knows, in a way this theory could work.
    My problem with it is that it sounds too much like Naruto, a talentless nobody that isn't quite a talentless nobody after all. Deku is supposedly representing those that were born without powers.

    I hate those videos and the clickbait titles.

    It’s the equilavent of those shitty Nationals Enquirer magazines you see in the impulse spots of supermarkets.

    It wouldn't really be the same as Naruto, because the story has never been about how Deku "came from nothing", and he isn't trying to prove anyone wrong (because nobody mocks him except Bakugo).

    Deku really did want to be a hero, he had all the right personal qualities, and was repeatedly shown putting in tons of work both before and after getting his quirk, so he really does deserve to be a hero.

    Naruto is just an idiot.

    Lol what tons of work before? The only time he started putting in ANY work was when the #1 hero promised him a quirk lmao.

    Pfft. I was about to ask the same thing, but then I saw your username while scrolling down, and I was like "Oh, never mind, VK surely addressed it." :trinny

    I mean, from a certain point of view, "research" could be counted as "work," but still...

    That was thrown out chapter 1, he can't really represent quirkless people when he has a quirk, natural or otherwise.

    I mean tbh his whole taking notes of heroes he liked thing back then always came across more as a hobby than actual preparation he did for his future hero career.

    And either way i wouldn't even classify that as the bare minimum.

    He was constantly studying heroes, yeah.
    Physically he didn't put in any work, of course.

    I really hope that's not the case.

    While it is true that he got All Might's power, it's not as if it was just handed to him on a silver platter. It was because of WHO he was that made it possible. It's not like All Might gave it to him just because he felt bad for Deku, he genuinely saw a person worthy of being a hero based on their personality and actions. That's what made it special, because it's about Deku's heart, not his talent.

    Deku having a quirk doesn't change the discrimination and struggle he went through, having it stolen only makes All For One a more nefarious villain. Of course its a plot line that I don't know where they could go with, if its just sorta hanging around then what ever, but I don't know what they would do with telling us Deku had a stolen quirk, I'd rather it just be implied if there is nothing amazing around the corner for it.

    >inb4 those phantoms at the Sports Festival vs mind control boy were actually prophesicers like Madam Web(SpiderMan) and are what gave AM his "hunch" to pick Deku in the first place and Deku is the boy destined to be greater than all those who came before him

    OMG the shitstorm it would cause lol
    i could see people dropping manga if that happened
