Should One For All give Midoriya a bulky form later on?

    I'm still at the start of season 2, so forgive me if I don't know some things yet.

    I mean, it's the same quirk after all. I figure it works the same way for all users.

    But if the big muscly form is exclusive to All Might, then I must ask what is the reason for that. And whatever the case may be, doesn't Midoriya need a stronger body in order to fully tap into One For All's power?

    My theory One For All returns the user to their physical prime, as in, All Might is returning to his physical peak.

    Nah.


    At best he'll get taller and more lean/defined/muscular, nothing overly bulky. Size alone isn't strength, you can be strong without being a 600lb bodybuilder.

    Mine is that his bulky form is the result of having all former users' strength combined.

    Based on what I recall from the flashbacks, All Might always had a fairly robust physique. Look at the pages where Gran Torino recollects his training sessions with him—he looked very large, even before he gained One For All. By comparison, Midoriya has a much smaller build with a fighting style that (at the moment) focuses more on agility and kicks. One of the themes of the Quirk is that whoever inherits it has to make it their own, so for that reason I think whatever form One For All gives Midoriya (if any) once he masters it will be one designed around his frame and fighting style.

    I hope it does. At the very least I hope he has a physique like Batman's, for example. SUPER HYPE MEGA HULKED OUT ? Nope. Bruce Wayne-ish ? Perfect.

    Oh and I hope it shows in his costume.

    No. Please no. If we look at the past possessors of OFA we see various body builds. Not all have the steroid enhanced appearance of All Might. Imo Deku would look silly with a pumped up body.

    The common theory is that All Might is just using One For All to temporarily restore his body to at least look like it did before his injury. So big and buff would be just how All Might already normally looked. Unless Midoriya really bulks out, I don't imagine One For All would have any such effect on him.

    True, but I don't think that changes anything. The assertion should have read "you can be than a 600lb bodybuilder," which is also true...you just need to be a 600lb powerlifter. :lmao

    All Might didn't look as buff when he left Japan either. Though, that might be because he still had a few more years to go before he reached his physical prime. :hmm

    In all honesty Full Cowl looks WAY cooler than "MY SKIN IS COOOOOOOOLD" on Deku.

    That's because Izuku is a little brat. We could always get a time skip.

    And how do you know? Maybe they were only shown in their weak form.

    Would look ridiculous specially with those big ass eyes of his and his nerdy appearance in general.

    While we're at it, I wonder if Toshinori will die before the series ends.

    It's treated as a running gag, but the guy is constantly coughing blood. How long can someone like that last?

    I didn't mean right now, dipshit.

    That’s just what All Might looked like before his injury.

    He literally says it in the first chapter/episode, it’s like a fat guy at the pool flexing/sucking in his stomach.

    All Might was an absolute unit before his injury weakened him and we see him in the hospital in his muscle form naturally.

    I see. I thought he meant the injury makes him unable to transform for very long.

    That’s basically it. He can’t work very long without straining himself, thus he stops “flexing”/transforming.

    Midoriya will never have a transformation like that.

    Deku is never going to lose those big ole puppy eyes--or freckles--and that's fine by me. His face would look silly as Hell on top of a Hulk body.

    I would settle for something inbetween. Taller and a little bulkier than he is now, but not All Might big.

    Yeah and he mentioned that All Might's saving grace was his body... Although to me he looked more like a combination of the two forms we get to see. He wasnt exactly as big as All Might, but was not as frail as his injured self. Although his hairstyle is more like the frail version.

    I tried to rationalize the two effects, where Deku has some lightning shit with markings while All Might seems centered around steam or something.

    Would love to see how previous AFO users manifested it.

    But he still wasn't huge like the All Might we know.


    So... was there ever a time when super bulky All Might was the default state rather than a transformation?

    He was still in school at this time and probably hadn't finished fully developing.

    No.

    He needs to be different to All Might. As a symbol All Might worked but he also lulled people into a false sense of security that was evidently prone to shattering.

    I don't think Deku should aim to inspire people by being larger than life.
