Any place for theory?

I thought the theory that the muscle form is All Might's natural form and that One for All partially reverses the damage of his injury might be worth mentioning, but I thought I'd hold off until learning the conventions on this wiki. Thoughts? Juice7739 (talk) 01:54, July 8, 2018 (UTC)

one for all classification should be unknown or transformation

one for all is used differnlty by each user all might changes his body size deku gains aura around his body the quirk those not emitt anything super strength speed durability are not emissions so quirk should just be a transformation sense it powers falls under hybrid or unknown sense it affect is differnt for each user To love this (talk) 03:52, November 1, 2019 (UTC)04:09, November 1, 2019 (UTC)

Residual power

I think the explanation of the "leftover embers" of All Might's power is inaccurate. He stated early on that they reduction of power was due to his injury, and that continued use was what was reducing both the length of time and sheer force of strength he was able to endure. Having to push himself after fighting Nomu to bluff the League of Villains was when he said that his previous limit was basically cut in half. I'm not 100% caught up on the manga, and I might be missing something, but while it may cause a reduction of strength in the previous holder once transferred to a new one, I don't think All Might's case is typical. --King Starscream (talk) 13:31, May 11, 2020 (UTC)

Flame Vestige

why does the picture of past users show a flame-like character, is that another user or is that the quirk of one of the users SubNaut12 (talk) 06:29, May 31, 2020 (UTC) It is All Might I think. The reason why he is like that is because he still had a bit of One For All in him so it appears blurry.

That flame character is Toshinori Yagi, better known as All Might, the eighth user. I don't know why his body is flame-like in the mind scape. If I had to guess, I'd say that the echo of his consciousness hasn't had enough time to set in the core of One For All since he transferred it to Izuku, unlike the users before him who have been there for decades after passing the Quirk. That's just a guess, though.

Another possibility is that All Might can't clearly be seen in the mental plane because he's still alive, while all the other users are already dead. (GoldenOath20 (talk) 07:04, May 31, 2020 (UTC))

Like Golden has said, the flame-like user is All Might I always understood it as All Might describes the Quirk as fire burning. We see this multiple times when All Might says "embers" and the "flame" going out after his fight with AFO during Kamino. I think the "Vestiges" just project All Might as a fire-like being because that's how he describes the Quirk and just isn't died yet. FirePsychic (talk) 07:19, May 31, 2020 (UTC)

Quirk details

Right, so I don’t think anybody’s thought of this yet, but One for All seems to be psychosomatic (I think that’s the word?). Let me explain. Now, while it could appear to be a transformation quirk, we know it’s not. But in the second episode, All Might says he puts on a smile to hide his fear. This indicates he is putting on a persona for the public, and it seems like One for All is helping. You might notice that All Might’s hero form has a lot of muscles. Way too many muscles. If he was going for the look of being the strong guy that hides his pain for others, he would nail it perfectly. A little too perfectly. That form is a little too perfect for the persona he puts up, so it has to be influenced by his desire to put up such persona, and what he wants the persona to be. Not convinced? Consider Izuku. While both All Might and Izuku faced discrimination due to their former quirkless status, Izuku faced much more due to how low the quirkless percentage had fallen between All Might’s childhood and Izuku’s. Izuku was bullied, and it’s known that your childhood years shape who you are, so he may have internalized this. This is evidenced by how he, at the start, continues to think he isn’t worthy of One for All. While he’s gotten better, we just might not be seeing it as much, so a lot of it might still be there. This is the reason he broke his bones so often: he didn’t think he deserved One for All. And the lightning almost seems like it’s trying to tell everybody he can do things now, so he’s worth it. Even more proof is how All Might notices how different One for All is for him than Izuku: this would of course be the case, because they have very different (even though Izuku pretends they don’t) mindsets. So all of this means One for All is influenced by the mind of the user. Now, this might get deleted, but I just wanted to type it up, so…Starfire2020 (talk) 13:52, 13 August 2021 (UTC)Starfire
