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.

Description

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 used this technique to save Izuku and Katsuki from the Sludge Villain.[1] Izuku first used this technique at 100% in the Battle Trial[2] before dialing it down to 5% against Stain.[3] And Izuku would later use this again during the Forest Training Camp Arc while training with Tiger.[4] Katsuki first used this technique in conjunction with Izuku 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]
