Radio Waves ( (でん) () Denpa?) is a Quirk used by Tomura Shigaraki after he acquired All For One's Quirk. It's unknown who had the Quirk before All For One took it.


Radio Waves allows the user to disrupt radio waves and cause communicators to malfunction.[1] The Quirk can also be used to awaken and control the Nomu from a distance through an induced current.[2]


Tomura utilizes this Quirk in conjunction with Air Cannon to create a wide-range blast that can shut down communications used by Heroes.[1] This blast had a secondary effect of awakening several incomplete High-End Nomu which Tomura had prepared nearby.[2]

When All For One takes control of Tomura's body, he utilizes Radio Waves to command the remaining Near High-End Nomu, something Tomura was unable to accomplish due to his inexperience, unaware of how to accurately elicit specific commands through the induced current. All For One proceeds to use this Quirk as a way to control the Nomu to escape the battlefield, and subsequently break into Tartarus.[3]
