Delaware Smash Air Force (デラウェアスマッシュエアフォース Derawea Sumasshu Eafōsu?) is a Super Move used by Izuku Midoriya.


Using support gloves made by Mei Hatsume, Izuku can direct a blast of compressed air against his foe. The attack possessed enough concussive force to stun Gentle while he was in mid-air, giving Izuku an opening to catch up to him.[1] By using all five of his fingers, he can launch up to four Delaware Smash Air Forces simultaneously.[2]


Izuku explained that using Air Force requires him to use at least 20% of One For All, which is beyond what his body is capable of handling. While this technique doesn't leave Izuku with major injuries, it does induce pain throughout his body, ultimately hindering his mobility in battle.[3]
