Shigaraki will do something so evil, that Deku will have no choice.

Deku will not murder Muscular, but he will rip his arms and legs off. A fair trade if you ask me.

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.

I hear what you’re saying and I agree, but do consider:

“I accidentally killed my family and was groomed to be a child soldier.”

“I’m the product of an abusive home where strength was everything and I want revenge and to expose my father for what he is”

“I LIKE MURDER”

Functionally they’re very similar but presentation matters.

Guys, here's what's going to happen when Deku fights Muscular.

But obviously, since it's Muscular he's going to get back up and Deku's gonna have to be more analytical about dismantaling him in round 2.

Deku is going to hit Muscular with the Diamond Cutter and get the three count before Muscular knows what's happening.

I knew Deku was going to show off some new tricks but killing Yo Shindo and using Black Whip to work his body like a puppet and heckle Muscular while he beats him down is a bit too edgy for my taste.

Muscular broke all his clothes with those 12,000 layers of muscles, so tearing off those muscles is going to show the pasty body beneath.

You can also see bits of the good person that Shigaraki (or Toga, Twice, etc) could have been now and then, with Shigaraki's current self demonstrating a weird mix of his childhood desire to be a hero and save people with his upbringing by AFO and being conditioned like a dog to associate destroying things and killing people with happiness. I think this contributes too, and is also why, while he does have his fans, you seem to see fewer people suggesting the possibility of Dabi being redeemed than Shiggy or the rest of the "main" League villains; unlike the rest, he doesn't really demonstrate any positive qualities, even seeing the rest of the League as tools rather than the friends/family the rest developed into, plus while they're all killers he's the only one that seems to actually enjoy making people suffer.

Muscular has all of Dabi's problems there, being an unrepentant sadist and murderer who shows shows absolutely no redeeming qualities (besides maybe his "kill or be killed" philosophy including respect for those strong enough to challenge him instead of him being a hypocrite when the tables might get turned; he seemed to remember Kota's parents positively, after all), and we haven't even gotten a sympathetic story for him. He just kills people because he likes killing. So, yeah, people aren't going to sympathize with him much, which is probably the point; for an even more direct comparison, while I was writing this post I realized that Rappa is a pretty similar character in a lot of ways, but he was presented as much more likable despite also being a murderer who wants to punch a child to death (or be punched to death by said child, he's cool with either really), which suggests that if Horikoshi wanted his audience to like Muscular, he probably could.

I don't think that means that Deku is going to kill Muscular, or anyone else, of course, or even maim him horribly or whatever (unless maybe if you count punching off all that excess muscle fiber as maiming, I guess it depends on how that stuff works and how easily it falls off/goes away normally*). Just commenting on the sympathy thing.


*Tangent regarding Muscular's, well, muscles, wow his power is gross when you think about it for more than a little bit.

Everyone at the time seemed pretty sure compressing his own rear end would lead to his death, despite all the timeskip thrown around its only been a few weeks at most so he could easily still just be dying in the hospital somewhere.

Or come back with a robot rear end.

Captured but severely injured. I think we’d know by now if he died on the way to the hospital, but he could be in a coma or something.

I know some are tragically born without, but for those who had an rear end only to lose it... can they still be said to be alive?

I don't think everyone should be making light of Mr. Compress's significant contribution to the Jaku fight. Shiggy would have never gotten away if Compress wasn't willing to work his rear end off to get things done.

Muscular's tragic backstory is that he was Mitsuki's little brother, and her stealing his chicken nuggies right out of his hand when he was 5 convinced him that strength is the only thing that mattered in this world.
