Template:Chapter The Symbol of Peace is the ninety-first chapter of Kōhei Horikoshi's Boku no Hero Academia.


Katsuki has grabbed Eijirou’s hand; seeing that they have succeeded, Shouto and Momo begin escaping from the area. Tomura, the Vanguard Action Squad and All Might are surprised that Izuku, Eijirou and Tenya were in the area as well. Refusing to allow Katsuki to escape, Kenji along with Spinner and Mr. Compress devise a plan to recapture Katsuki. Kenji magnetizes Mr. Compress and Spinner pushes him, causing Mr. Compress to fly at Izuku’s group. Suddenly, Mount Lady uses Titan Cliff and intercepts Mr. Compress, which causes them to smash into each other, preventing Mr. Compress from getting to the students. Izuku along with Katsuki are surprised at Mount Lady’s intervention. Mount Lady tells the students to escape before falling down and becoming unconscious.

Kenji and Spinner prepare to launch Twice into the air. However, they are attacked at blinding speed, causing them to fall down. The one responsible for striking down Kenji, Spinner and Twice is Gran Torino. The elderly Hero is annoyed that Izuku has taken on All Might’s characteristics, while All Might himself is still surprised that Izuku and some of his fellow students came to rescue Katsuki. However, All Might is pleased with their intervention as he can now fight Sensei without holding back. Izuku along with Eijirou, Tenya and Katsuki begin escaping from the battlefield. Gran Torino prepares to attack Tomura and Himiko.

Now that the tables have turned, Sensei sees that they no longer can secure victory due to Katsuki’s rescue and that most of the Vanguard Action Squad is unconscious. Sensei decides to save Tomura and the Vanguard Action Squad. Sensei forcefully activates Kenji’s Magnetism. Before Tomura can attack Gran Torino, he along with the Vanguard Action Squad is magnetically pulled into Kurogiri’s Warp Gate. Himiko, Mr. Compress, Twice and Spinner are sucked into Kurogiri’s Warp Gate with Kenji being thrown into the portal courtesy of Sensei, teleporting them away. As he is being sucked into the Warp Gate, Tomura calls out to his teacher concerned for his safety. Before Tomura teleports away, Sensei tells Tomura to continue the fight. Tomura and the unconscious Kurogiri are teleported away by the Warp Gate, causing the portal to disperse.

All Might charges at Sensei, but Sensei uses his Transmission Quirk to teleport Gran Torino in front of him, using the elderly Hero as a human shield which causes Gran Torino to take All Might’s attack instead. Sensei expresses his hatred for All Might as he is the one who brought down his comrades in the past and while he descended into darkness, All Might rose to the top as the Symbol of Peace. Sensei prepares to fire his blast wave move, intending of blowing away Gran Torino and All Might at the same time. However, All Might pulls Gran Torino away and uses Detroit Smash to cancel out Sensei’s blast wave move.

Sensei sees that his destruction of the city has brought chaos and decides to put the innocent civilians in danger so that All Might won’t be able to fight at full strength. Furious with Sensei’s sadism, All Might grabs his arm while throwing Gran Torino away for safety. All Might admonishes Sensei for all the despicable crimes he has committed and for his misanthropy.

All Might punches Sensei in the face, shattering his mask; however, All Might’s punch wasn’t strong enough to finish off Sensei.  As Gran Torino calls out to him, All Might turns back into his true form. Sensei says that All Might would not be the first to criticize him as he has heard those same lines before, from the previous One For All successor: Nana Shimura.
