Volume 9 Quirk Training 1

Minoru Mineta

Pop Off

Just as with ordinary muscle training, Minoru's goal is to toughen up his scalp so that he doesn't bleed even with excessive use of his Quirk

Katsuki Bakugo


By subjecting his hands to extreme heat, he enlarges his sweat glands. This allows Katsuki to pull of more explosions in succession. He also hopes to create larger-scale explosions

Ochaco Uraraka

Zero Gravity

She trains by repeatedly using her quirk even when it's already made her queasy. By suppressing her inner ear canals, Ochaco can increase the maximum weight limit of what she can float.

Momo Yaoyorozu & Rikido Sato

Creation & Sugar Rush

These two continously use their quirks while simultaneously taking in the energy they need for activation. This lets their bodies get more used to the effects. Rikido's goal is to increase both the effective time period and the degree to which he powers up. Momo employs her quirk while eating food, training herself to produce high-quality objects as an afterthought while doing something else at the same time.

Shoto Todoroki

Half-Cold, Half-Hot

He attempts to produce ice while submerging himself in hot water. The heat from the water wards off the chills so that his body can grow accustomed to creating ice continuosly. Meanwhile, Shoto also uses his left side to keep the water at a set temperature, an excercise meant to give him control over the temperature of his flames. Through this sort of Quirk training, using fire and ice at the same time might not be just a pipe dream

Volume 9 Quirk Training 2

Tenya Iida 


I didn't draw him doing this, but Tenya's basically just running laps around the camp's perimeter

Tsuyu Asui 

Frog Form

By muscle training, Tsuyu is strengthening her jumping capabilities and the power of her tongue

Yuga Aoyama 

Navel Laser

By continuing to shoot his laser even when his stomach starts to hurt, Yuga's body acclimates to the process. This will allow him to fire his laser for longer periods.

Koji Koda 


Koji's training involves shouting so that his voice can reach faraway targets.

Denki Kaminari 


By continuously releasing electricity, Denki hopes to train his body to withstand higher output

Mashirao Ojiro 


Mashirao strengthens his tail by smashing it against hard objects.

Kyoka Jiro 

Earphone Jack

Strengthening her jacks will allow for better sound quality, so Kyoka is focusing on whipping those ears around. As usual, I didn't draw this happening

Mezo Shoji 


Mezo is working hard at creating his duplicate parts faster and maintaining control over multiple parts at once. This training sounds especially tough.

Fumikage Tokoyami 

Dark Shadow

He trains by attempting to control Dark Shadow while in complete darkness. You might have noticed a panel with a "Gahhh" coming from a cave. That's Fumikage battling against Dark Shadow

About "It's Okay"

Volume 9 Quirk Law

Harming another with one's Quirk is fundamentally against the rules, which is why the use of Quirks in public places is forbidden by law (self-defense is an exception - if someone attacked first, they're allowed to defend themselves). It's different than ordinary self-defense though, which might involve punching someone or pinning them down. This is because Quirks vary so much in nature and because some Quirks are capable of killing in an instant. Attempting to account for every given Quirk in the law books is essentially impossible due to the varying degrees of harm that different Quirks can cause. This is what led to the current heavy handed law which states, "No one may use his/her Quirk to harm another!"

However, the law that forbids Quirk use in public spaces is viewed much like this old rule that states "Bicycles are not to be ridden on sidewalks." That is to say, if Izuku's mother dropped her cell phone on the ground outside, she might use her telekinetic Quirk to draw it back to her. Strictly speaking this would constitute a violation of the rules, but few people would actually give her any guff about it. Naturally a stricter approach would be taken with Quirks that could actually harm bystanders (Katsuki would probably get in trouble for using his explosions to boost himself down the street)

As for the battle fought at USJ, anti-personnel Quirk use is permitted on school grounds, which are meant to be spaces for education and training. As such, there was no issue in that case. Still, it would've been a different story if any of the students had killed or nearly killed someone

Concerning 1000000 Percent

Volume 9 1,000,000% Delaware Detroit Smash

Fans and colleagues alike have asked me, "What's that mean? I totally don't get it." I'm really sorry if it was hard to understand. Of course it wasn't actually 1,000,000 percent - that was just a way of expressing Izuku's intense emotions and energy. Like when someone summons incredible strength in a crisis. I'll be working hard to make everything going forward easier to understand, more cheery, openhearted and fun - in the hopes that I can eventually do away with this supplement column. Ahhhhhhh!
