Living the Dream


Shigaraki is being manipulated and had his brain broken by horrific circumstances. Muscular murders people entirely because it gets him off.

The overall point stands, but with Muscular it's a lot harder to see how someone like that could be "saved"

Violence isn't always the answer, but when you go from "twink main-ish villain with tragic past" to "muscle wall", well, you gotta change tactics from "save him from his upbringing" to "punch REALLY hard"

Muscular is being set us as the guy Deku can punch really hard and not just explode kinda like the first Nomu All Might fought as a display of how bad rear end Deku is now.

Funny enough that is how many times he hit muscular in their first fight.

Once to realize 5% did nothing, once at 100% only for him to block it. Then twice as part of his 1,000,000% combo.

The reason I picked four is because Eggplant Squire was contrasting this with the All Might v. USJ Nomu fight and All Might made a comment at the end that in his prime he would have finished the Nomu in five hits. If Deku's first fight with Muscular was decided in four blows I wonder if that was just a coincidence

Deku didn't kill anyone involved with Eri despite the fact that what Eri went through is probably worse than anything that happened to anyone including everyone's favorite Evil Woobie. He's not going to up and murder someone for no reason.

I-Itís like one of those funny things, like on - you ever watch F Troop? - where Agarn says "There's no way I'm wearin' a dress! Absolutely not! No dress!" And Forrest Tucker's like, "Yeah, you're wearin' that dress! You're gonna wear that dress!" And they wipe - blblblblblblblb - and Agarn's wearin' a dress!

Dude I got news for you: I am the writer of my academia for heroes, Frank Horikoshi, and Deku is going to murder an entire country's worth of villains to prove he is the goddamn hero now.

That'd be a great echo of the final scene from Metal Gear Rising.

I mean people are empathizing with "the crazy murdertouch man" "literally a serial killer" and "burns people alive for fun" man. Give Muscular a reasonable excuse and probably could happen.

It was considered shocking and awful when the guy who lived to help murder/kidnap children and repeatedly did his best to help with that goal was stabbed by a hero to prevent him from going to help murder and kill people.

Deku murdering someone would be fuckin' awful no matter who it was.
