Search (サーチ Sāchi?)[1] is the Quirk that was formerly used by Tomoko Shiretoko, until it was stolen from her by All For One, and later used by Tomura Shigaraki.


Search allows the user to monitor and observe up to a hundred people at a time. This includes knowing their locations and weak points.[1] The individuals being observed are visualized through the Quirk as star-like vestiges, and can allow the user to know their location up to even miles away.

Search also permanently stores the information gained after its usage.[2]


Tomoko is seen using the Quirk to observe the students of Class 1-A and Class 1-B during the Quirk Training Camp.

After it is stolen by All For One and transferred over to Tomura, he first uses the Quirk during the Paranormal Liberation War to track down Izuku Midoriya and One For All, with the data having been carried over from when Tomoko had previously used the Quirk on him and his classmates.[3]

In the aftermath of the War, the Quirk becomes a major factor in Izuku's decision to leave U.A., as All For One's use of Search will allow him to know wherever he is whenever. All For One also later reveals Tomura used Search on all the Heroes he faced during the War as well, granting him access to the data as well.[4]
