Dabi vs. Geten is a battle fought between League of Villains member Dabi against Meta Liberation Army member Geten.


Koku Hanabata uses his Political Party Van to rally warriors on the League of Villains position. He reveals Miss Curious has perished and all the warriors swarm Tomura Shigaraki. Despite being weary from long battles with Gigantomachia, Tomura wipes out every one of the liberation warriors using his improved powers.

Mysterious Figure attacks Dabi

A mysterious hooded warrior attacks Dabi.

Impressed, Dabi decides to go all out as well and says its time to increase his body count. A shadowy figure appears above him and he's barely able to avoid the incoming attack from above.

Geten of the Liberation Army was able to hide his presence and strike from above using two giant ice gauntlets.[1] Dabi warns his opponent that he's gotten stronger recently, but also admits he knows his opponent is tough as well. Geten asks why the League's only wide-range fighter hasn't used his flames yet, implying something might be wrong with Dabi's Meta Ability.

Amused, Dabi doesn't answer the question and instead reveals the commonly known fact that fire melts ice.[2]


Dabi opens the fight by lifting his arms in the air before violently bringing them down, unleashing a large wave of fire. The ice warrior reshapes his ice gauntlets into pillars that lift him out of harms way. The fire shatters the ice pillars and Geten begins to fall back to the ground. The ice villain uses his Meta Ability to collects great amounts of ice from nearby buildings and creates a giant mass of it for him to float on.

Dabi's flames melt the ice

Dabi's flames hold the advantage early on.

Geten reveals his Meta Ability is the power to manipulate ice, all ice. The ice warrior warns the flame villain that he's been mastering his superpowers his entire life, longer than most Pro Heroes and skipped school to train with Re-Destro instead. Dabi claims that is a sad life and Geten replies that his ice can't be melted by such weak fire. The full power of their elements collide and split the battlefield for all the other nearby villains. [2]

Dabi's hot blue flames ultimately win the clash of elements by melting away the giant mass of ice. The blue flame villain taunts Geten, claiming he's outmatched elementally and even claims his flames are bigger and badder than any ice. Struggling with other warriors nearby, Compress asks for Dabi's help. He refuses and points Compress to the giant army of Twice clones headed their way.

Countless Twice clones arrive to save Compress and they say they'll clone Dabi to defeat the MLA. However, Compress warns him to keep fodder warriors around for when Gigantomachia arrives. Suddenly, Geten unleashes a fierce wave of ice that skewers many of Twice's doubles.

Geten gloats about the MLA’s power

Geten showcases his incredible power.

Confused, Dabi shields himself with fire and asks if Deika City manufactures ice or something. Geten reminds Dabi that he manipulates all ice, including its temperature. A small drop of water on Dabi's arm freezes, giving away the secret. Geten has been using ice to freeze the city's water line, creating more weapons for him. Dabi calls him obnoxious for not opening the fight by doing so.

Geten declares the future the Liberation Army is trying to create will be one where one's rank in society is decided by the strength of their Meta Ability. The ice warrior further decimates Twice's double army with his incredible power, creating an explosion of ice destroy to them. He's taking out his own soldiers as well but he claims life has no value beyond sheer strength.

Annoyed, Dabi says that way of life is pitiful and rudely asks his opponent to roll over and die. The ice warrior claims it is the blue flame wielder who will die and that a burning smell has been coming from Dabi's body. He says evaluating an opponent's Meta Ability is the basics of super-powered combat and has surmised that a drawn-out battle is to Dabi's disadvantage. Dabi's remaining skin patches look inflamed and ready to peel off, his body is reaching its limit as the flames eat away at him. [3]

Despite Dabi's disadvantage, he continues fighting and using his flames to counter Geten's furious frozen assault. [4]
