    They fight in the same place Mirio fought Class 1-A.


    Tamaki get's to prepare in advance and eat whatever he thinks would help him the most in this match-up. He's allowed to consume anything you think his quirk could handle, even if it's not easily obtainable.

    If Mirio takes it, would he still win if he had no knowledge about Tamaki and his Quirk prior to their fight ?

    One of the problems I have with Mirios power is that while it's OP to some extent, he's still only human. A peak condition human, but human nontheless. The people he's managed to damage have always been those that didn't have much durability to them. But if Tamaki goes ham with octopus muscles and crab shell armour, then I'm having a hard time seeing Mirio actually being able to damage him. Meanwhile, one solid hit from an attack from Tamaki would seriously damage Mirio.

    I guess it comes down to Tamakis reflexes and how much damage Mirio can lay on him.

    There's the gut phasing punch. He could also phase through the whatever armor same way he kicked Chrono who was holding Eri and Mirios foot went through her just fine before making contact with the bad man.



    Like seriously, one guy worships the other... this match is obvious

    Can Tamaki make a difference if he gets to eat anything he wants prior to the fight to attempt to counter Mirio ? With Mirio not knowing what Tamaki ate ? Or if on top of that Mirio is entirely oblivious about Tamakis quirk, but Tamaki keeps his knowledge about him ?

    If tamaki can eat something with regeneration the maybe, otherwise mirio all his attacks while chipping away at whatever armor tamaki uses.

    Physical fighters like tamaki aren't a good match against mirio.

    Mirio phases through tamaki's armor and break his face. Shields and blocking are useless against mirio so tamaki has no way to defend.

    As for avoiding tamaki's offense it's to obvious. Let's not even go there.

    Ironically Mirio is probably hard countered by the other 2 members of the big three. If Nejire can get going, her constant energy attacks will hit Mirio at some point, but he might be able to blitz her and KO her with a punch. Tamaki has a lot of range, large AoE is sort of his weakness.

    Its not that Mirio can't fight back, I don't think a single quirk other then Endeavor maybe is a true hard counter for Mirio but he won't have a easy time with highly offensive people.

    Yeah it's too bad Overhaul didn't have range / large AoE




    Class 1A could have used some of those highly offensive people too. If only there was a guy that could shoot lasers, spit acid, through tape, release electricity, release high concentrated levels of physical estrogen (this is deku's quirk yes?), etc.

    Overhauls quirk has holes in it, literal holes. Whats Mirio going to do against a wall of constant flame?

    Acid, tape and lazers are easily dodgable, Kaminari likely can't keep up in stamina with Mirio.

    Never said anything about beating the number 1 hero...

    ...and everything Ive mentioned falls into the category of your list of Mirio counters. Did you miss those moments reading the manga?

    How is acid or the lasers large range AoE? Acid only has range that matters when shot out like a water canon. Tape unironically could be a strong matchup, when Sero gains more experience and can fight at a higher level, I imagine him and Mirio could be very competitive. Mirio has to be physical during his fight, either to just see or breath, if he gets caught by the tape it can throw him off pretty badly and Sero can likely build webs of it like spiderman.

    Kaminari doesn't have the stamina, if he did, he would be a hard counter to Mirio, he doesn't.

    I do think Tamaki would not beat Mirio in an equal field fight, if both don't get time to prepare for it. It's why i put the conditions in place for Tamaki to be allowed to consume anything he thinks would help him out the most in this match-up.

    The Overhaul argument is quite good to show that Mirio can handle techniques that affect a large area, but the kids one doesn't really hold up seeing how Tamaki was also looking down on them and their approach, comparing them to ignorant civilians vs the pros that he and Mirio are in comparison, noting that there's a vast difference in levels between them.

    What i was wondering is what Tamaki might consume in order to gain the advantage, or to what extent Mirio not having any information on Tamaki and his quirk would help out Tamaki, and if that could give him the win.

    What animal is a good burrower? Ground hog? Underground should be a weak point for Mirio :hm

    That's a good idea. Mirio would have a hard time keeping track of an underground target, and while he is above the ground such an opponent can aim for his feet, which are bound to be materialized in order to keep him from falling beneath the surface.

    He's gonna need flight help keep some distance, regen to recover from togata's bone breaking punches, pufferfish for poison spikes to deter attacks, some kinda sensory ability and maybe eat a spider to make webs that limit mirio's movement.

    I think with that kinda combo he might pull a win but togato still has a shot if he could land some well timed punches.

    I think @Xiammes with the burrower nailed it more than a flight ability, especially for an indoors fight. Mirio can't really track stuff beneath the ground during his falls. But you make a great point about a sensory ability that would allow him to track Mirio once he materializes above the ground.

    You forgot mirio is the undisputed king of predictions and feints. If tamaki can react to his first attack mirio will just take the oppurtunity to muay thai knee through tamaki's ribcage while he's distracted from his punch. A straight up blitz from a phantom menace combo would also suffice.

    Mirio is the minato namikaze of this section when it comes to battledome stuff. He's the most evasive character in the verse to the point of being nigh untouchable but fans will pretend he can just be defeated by whatever scenario they dream up. The "lack of firepower" stuff is wrong as well. Repeated phantom menace combos would K.O everything besides the most durable entities in the verse.

    Tamaki doesn't need to react if the nemacotysts are on his skin

    Normally sure Mirio wrecks him but give him the entire animal kingdom at his disposal including shit he doesn't usually eat and Mirio's in trouble.

    So question, Mirios quirk side effect Is the same with people as with the ground? Depending on the answer, I dont see whats stopping Mirio, other than his morals, from directly punching his heart and end it.

    Mirio's whole costume has to be weaved from his hair instead of real protective material, which will probably screw him over.

    iirc the hair was woven into some special fibres. Also pantyhose is apparently an effective defense against jellyfish stings, mirio's hair suit should be a lot thicker than that, especially the boots and gloves
