My Hero Academia Chapter 413 Spoilers:
The chapter begins with a flashback of Star’s final moments inside AFO vestiges.
While fighting other quirks, she saw something quite unusual and said, “Master, there’s a sad kid over there” while pointing towards a crack.
All Might then wakes up.
Egdeshoot states that All Might will need to stay awake if he doesn’t want to die, but All Might isn’t sure what happened just now.
He was having a vision right now, just like he was in the hospital with Deku after the war. All Might wonders how this could happen even when he is so far away from Deku. He questions if One For All is becoming frayed.
The chapter focuses back on the fight, where Tomura is also puzzled to have a vision of Star. Tomura claims, “I’ve annihilated you!” but then remembers her final words.
He remembers Star saying that heroes always inherit each other’s will and wonders if that vision was an ember of Star’s flame.
Meanwhile, Deku is thrown to the ground and asked what Kudou meant. Kodoue explains that the lump of lead inside Tomura represents all the anger, frustation, and memories of his part.
They all have now come together, solidified, and formed an impenetrable layer of hatred. However, All Might’s vestige noticed a crack.
He continues by stating that during his fight with Star, a wound opened up inside his consciousness.
Furthermore, as this wound is a mental wound and not a physical wound, it cannot be healed by any quirk.
In his current state, Tomura is too strong to be defeated, so they have to finish him off from the inside.
Kudou further adds that transferring One For All to Shigarakki will make the crack increase in size until it breaks, allowing them to reach his consciousness.
However, En disagrees with the plan, as he believes that this will only make him stronger, similar to what happened with Danger Sense.
To this, Kudou replies that he has expanded his idea of transferring similarities to how Deku used to have the egg/microwave analogy, but he has to visualize it in a more aggressive way.
As an example, Kudou shares how Bakugou aggressively passes the papers to Deku during class and throws them on his face.
Kudou adds that depending on how the transfer is done, Shigaraki could take damage.
To test this, he volunteers to go first. En disagrees and says he must go first instead, as his quirk smokescreen is the most useless in this fight. He adds that if Shigaraki uses Kudou’s greashift, it will be the end of the fight.
Kudou is sure that even after the transfer of quirk takes place, the level of recoil won’t get reset. Meaning if Shigaraki uses gearshift, he will become more exhausted. Bruce says that although he has always followed Kudou, he does not agree with him on this.
Kudou acknowledges that this is a risky bet; however, they all have lived in dark times and fought in cruel battles. So now he wants to believe in Deku, who hasn’t given up on saving a heart.
The chapter then features a brief flashback of Deku saying that he’s blessed to have All Might near him.
Nana’s vestige appears and says that Deku’s hesitation is not because he is afraid or he can’t do it but rather because he considers One For All a treasure that he got from his favorite hero.
Tomura tells them to stop, and Kudou asks Banjo to stay by Deku’s side. He also asks Yoichi to help, and he replies, Leave it to me, my hero.”
Kudou then shouts, “The rest is up to you! What do you say, Izuku Midoriya?”
To which he replies that he will take his bet and do it. Numerous black whips attack Shigaraki, tearing his arm off. Shigaraki stares at Deku and says that the way he looks, he would never guess that he is a hero.
The final panel shows Shirtless with black whips covering his entire body, and the chapter ends here.
