Threads of Hope

My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 125 taught us that Best Jeanist is really the strongest hero. Best Jeanist was able to stop Gigantomachia in his tracks for longer than the Class 1-A and 1-B students. Even when Machia received new orders from Shigaraki, Best Jeanist held him in place.

But, here’s the thing. The “strongest” hero is going to depend on the situation. Best Jeanist happened to have the perfect quirk (and equipment) for this specific job. As we saw, Dabi was able to burn through Beast Jeanist’s fibers. So, a different hero would be best suited to fighting Dabi.

The same argument could be made about Hawks being the perfect hero for taking down Twice. Really, any of the top 10 pro heroes could be the strongest hero in any given moment. However, that doesn’t mean this way of thinking extends to all heroes.

Something we need to keep in mind is that not all quirks have the same “power level.” You can have two quirks that do similar things, but one of them may be superior. Think about the Zero Gravity and Float quirks. Based on what we know, Zero Gravity is the better of the two.

You can also have two people with the same quirk, but one person’s quirk is stronger than the other. The Todoroki family is the perfect example of this. Dabi and Endeavor have the same quirk (supposedly). And according to Endeavor, Dabi’s quirk potential is higher than his own.

Now, is Dabi’s quirk stronger than Endeavors due to luck? Or does it have to do with the theory that quirks get stronger with every successive generation? Remember, that’s not something that only applies to One-for-All. One-for-All enhances this effect, but all quirks get stronger.

Lemillion Returns!

The highlight of Episode 125 was the return of Lemillion, Mirio Togata. Not only is Lemillion a fun character, but he has a cool quirk too. And, thanks to Eri’s Rewind quirk, Lemillion has his Permeation quirk once again. As you’ll remember, Overhaul deleted it back in Episode 75.

And, back in my review of Episode 75, I mentioned that I didn’t think Lemillion’s quirk would be gone for good. But, the way in which Lemillion got his quirk back could be a bit of an issue. If Eri can restore Lemillion’s quirk, where do her abilities end?

We already knew Eri could heal injuries from Deku’s fight against Overhaul. And now that she can also restore quirks that were deleted 6 months prior, what else can she do? Can she heal the severe wounds of all the pro heroes? Will Eraser Head get his leg back thanks to Eri’s quirk?

The fact that Eri can restore quirks also makes deleter rounds invalid in most cases. Eraser Head still needed to cut off his own leg, though. He had to do this because he needed to continue using his quirk on Shigaraki. It wasn’t about losing his quirk altogether.

Deleter rounds aren’t completely obsolete, though. You can still use one on Eri herself. Then, once she can’t use her quirk to restore other quirks, deleter rounds are back to working as intended. But, I can’t see that happening. Instead, I think deleter rounds are going to fade away.

Oh, and let’s not forget that Eri could technically restore All Might to his former glory. She can heal his body and make it so he can use 100% of his quirk again. This isn’t going to happen. But, as far as I can tell, there’s nothing stopping it.

Endeavor Falls (Again)

Have you noticed that Endeavor gets beat up a lot? I know he’s going up against a lot of strong opponents. But, I get the feeling All Might wouldn’t have had this much trouble. I mean, a single high-end Nomu was even almost able to take down Endeavor.

Well, Endeavor is down once again. He landed a final punch on Gigantomachia and then fell to the ground. And while, at first, it seemed that Endeavor’s punch also took down Machia, that’s not the case. The anesthetic Kirishima got into Machia’s mouth finally took effect.

So, here’s my question: After this battle, will Endeavor still be the number 1 hero? The pro hero power rankings are partly based on ability and partly based on popularity. So, will Endeavor failing to stop Shigaraki, Gigantomachi, and Dabi hurt his rank? Will the people lose faith in his abilities?

Also, we have to take Dabi’s existence into consideration. Will the fact that Dabi is the son of Endeavor hurt Endeavor’s reputation? Or, will people understand that Endeavor isn’t responsible for the actions of his son? Sure, Endeavor wasn’t a great father. But, he didn’t make his son become a terrorist; he thought his son died.

If Endeavor does fall from the top spot, though, who could replace him? Probably not the current number 2 hero, Hawks. Remember, the fact that Hawks killed Twice was broadcast to the nation. People might not think so highly of him anymore, even if he only did what he needed to.

And, here’s where we circle back to Best Jeanist. I feel like he was up in the third spot at one point. Now that he was vital in stopping Gigantomachia, he could be considered the number 1 hero. And he’s a worthy number 1.

Conclusion

What do you think of My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 125? Who do you think is actually the strongest current hero? Will Eri use her quirk to heal Eraser Head’s leg injury? And will this battle against Dabi cause Endeavor’s ranking to plummet? Let me know in the comments.
