Super Regeneration ( (ちょう) (さい) (せい) Chōsaisei?) or simply Regeneration ( (さい) (せい) Saisei?)[1] is the Quirk used by Upper-Tier Nomu, such as the U.S.J. Nomu and the Eyeless Hosu Nomu, High-End Nomu, such as Hood and Woman, Tomura Shigaraki, and a Special Bomber. All For One had stolen the Quirk from an unknown person.


Super Regeneration has the ability to regenerate any sort of injuries on the user's body, such as missing limbs, at incredible speeds.[2]


The drawbacks of Super Regeneration have been displayed by different users.

All For One once stole this Quirk in the past and tried to use it to heal himself from the heavy damage he sustained from his first battle with All Might, but the Super Regeneration Quirk had little to no effect because his body had already cauterized those injuries.[3] This implies that Super Regeneration can't heal injuries that are already in a state of regeneration.

When the U.S.J. Nomu was defeated by All Might, Katsuki Bakugo surmised that the Symbol of Peace punched Nomu faster than it could regenerate.

During the Hosu Incident, Endeavor engaged the Eyeless Nomu, and after witnessing its ability to regenerate, the Flame Hero cauterized the wound before it could completely heal itself, rendering the Super Regeneration Quirk ineffective.[4]

When Endeavor battled against Hood, he used his Super Move, "Prominence Burn", to overwhelm the High-End Nomu's regenerative abilities, before Hood removed its head in order to regenerate a new body.[5]

Tomura's Decay Quirk can bypass the Super Regeneration Quirk by destroying the user's body entirely, preventing them from regenerating, as seen when some of the High-End Nomu were killed by Tomura when he awakened.[6]



  • In both the original and Vigilantes series, Super Regeneration is the Quirk that has the most users besides One For All.
