Detroit Smash (デトロイトスマッシュ Detoroito Sumasshu?) is a Super Move performed by All Might, Izuku Midoriya, and Katsuki Bakugo using the One For All Quirk.


Izuku uses Detroit Smash for the first time.

Detroit Smash is All Might's signature move that Izuku later mimics after inheriting One For All. The move is a simple punch focusing One For All's stockpiling power into the fist. All Might's punches at 100% are capable of creating wind pressure so powerful it can change the weather.[1]

All Might first uses this technique to save Izuku and Katsuki from the Sludge Villain.[1] Izuku first uses this technique at 100% in the Battle Trial[2] before dialing it down to 5% against Stain.[3] Izuku would later use this again during the Forest Training Camp Arc while training with Tiger.[4] Katsuki first uses this technique in conjunction with Izuku forming an uppercut while creating a beam to dispel a thunderstorm created by Nine.[5]

All Might back at his time studying abroad in America, has been seen using this move as a straight forward punch, when he was in mid-air to creating wind pressure that redirect missiles to make them collide with each other.[6]

During All Might's final battle with All For One, All Might used this move to cancel out All For One's enhanced Air Cannon while moving Gran Torino out of the way.

During the Paranormal Liberation War, Izuku uses this move using 100% of his power while battling with Tomura.
