White-hot Battle! To Each Their Own Strengths ( (はく) (ねつ) ! (おの) (おの) (じつ) (リょく) ! Hakunetsu! Onōno no Jitsuryoku!?) is the one hundred and fourth chapter of Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.


The first exam of the Provisional Hero License Exam has begun; the first 100 students to hit six targets will move on to the Second Exam of the Provisional Hero License Exam. Most of Class 1-A have blocked the balls at them. An examinee from Ketsubutsu Academy High School hardens the balls while his fellow classmate fires the balls with perfect trajectory into the ground. Kyoka Jiro uses her Quirk and unleashes a special move called Heartbeat Fuzz which shatters the ground, allowing Class 1-A to see where the balls are being fired at. Mina Ashido uses her special move Acid Veil to protect Minoru Mineta. Seeing an opening, Fumikage Tokoyami equips Dark Shadow onto himself using Black Ankh (previously known as Tenebrous Abyss Body) and, grabbing a ball with his right hand, uses Piercing Claw of the Dusk against a student in order to attach the ball onto her. The student narrowly manages to dodge Fumikage's Dark Shadow claw in the nick of time and comments on Class 1-A's strength. Mera announces that zero examinees have passed so far. Izuku decides to wait and see the examinees' Quirks before starting an actual fight since everyone is protecting their targets and thus the chance of getting a lucky hit is minuscule.

On the bleachers, Emi Fukukado tells Shota Aizawa that those who take the leading role can turn the tables. In the stadium where Class 1-A are, Yo Shindo tells his fellow classmates that he will shatter their solid defense. Shindou uses his Quirk known as Shake (which causes whatever he touches to shake but the aftershocks are sent back to him) on the ground and uses a special move called Way of the Quaking Earth, which unleashes a powerful earthquake that completely shatter the ground, causing Class 1-A to lose their footing.

At another area of the stadium, some examinees feel the earthquake You Shindou caused. However, they soon forget about the earthquake and focus on the battle in front of them. Suddenly, all of the examinees’ balls are being swept up into the air by powerful gusts of wind. On top of a building, the examinee causing the gusts of wind is Inasa Yoarashi. Inasa is getting fired up and wishes to participate in the heated battle. Inasa blasts all of the balls onto the examinees with his powerful wind.

Mera receives information on the first examinee to pass which is Inasa Yoarashi. However, Mera is shocked that Inasa managed to eliminate 120 examinees in an instant.

Back at the battlefield between Class 1-A of U.A and Class 2-2 of Ketsubutsu Academy, Izuku is regaining his footing after the ground is shattered courtesy of You's Shake. Izuku contemplates that Ketsubutsu Academy have done their homework on analysing their Quirks and decides that Class 1-A must team up together in order to combat Ketsubutsu Academy’s strong teamwork. Despite at a disadvantage, Izuku cannot help but feel exited.

Suddenly, Izuku realizes that he has been hit by a female student’s ball, much to Izuku’s confusion. The female examinee who hit Izuku is from Shiketsu High called Camie and scolds Izuku for zoning out in the middle of a battle. However, Camie finds it weird that Izuku can still smile after being put at a disadvantage and finds it to be cool. Izuku focuses and prepares for combat.
