Detroit Smash (デトロイトスマッシュ Detoroito Sumasshu?) is a super move performed by Toshinori Yagi and Izuku Midoriya using the One For All Quirk.

Description

Toshinori focuses all his power into his fist and then smashes it into the ground to produce a massive amount of wind pressure. The pressure is strong enough to create an updraft which in turn creates rain. Toshinori first uses it to save Katsuki Bakugo from the Sludge Villain.

On the other hand, Izuku does an uppercut when doing this move, as opposed to punching downwards at the ground like Toshinori.

Variations

  • 5% Detroit Smash (5 パーセント デトロイトスマッシュ 5 Pāsento Detoroito Sumasshu?): With One for All: Full Cowling active, Izuku delivers a quirk enhanced punch directly to his opponent.[1][2] Izuku first used this technique in the air and hit Stain with a downwards punch.[3].
  • 100% Detroit Smash (100 パーセント デトロイトスマッシュ 100 Pāsento Detoroito Sumasshu?): Izuku activates One For All at 100% and delivers a straightforward punch to the opponent.[4]
