Manchester Smash (マンチェスタースマッシュ Manchesutā Sumasshu?) is a Super Move that is performed by Izuku Midoriya using the One For All Quirk.

Description

Izuku leaps into the air and flips forward to bring down an axe kick to his opponent. Although Overhaul managed to dodge it, it pulverized the ground thoroughly enough that Overhaul wasn't able to completely retaliate with his Overhaul Quirk.[1]

Trivia

  • This is the first Smash move that is not named solely after an American state or city- while it may be referring to Manchester, New Hampshire, or Manchester, Connecticut (which would be consistent with All Might's established theme), it could also be based off of a city in England of the same name.
  • Manchester Smash is featured as a technique for Izuku in Jump Force.
