The end of Season 4 of MHA left us all speechless. Too many exciting things happen during its last episodes. We have the rise of Endeavors to Number One Hero and his ascension as the New Symbol of Pride. He also managed to unleash a new technique “Plus Ultra Prominence Burn” that reflects his Heroism and Pride. Moreover, we have Midoriya dreaming about the origins of the One for All.
A lot of doors opened for us, a lot of possibilities as for what season 5 will reveal. We’ve been waiting for a long time now and a lot of us tried to come up with some of the possible storylines. And some of the theories that the fans came up with are just mind-blowing. Let’s not waste any more time and get right to the subject.
Let’s see which one of those theories will be further from the truth.

12- Denki Kaminari is the traitor?
We have asked ourselves which Hero could possibly betray all his Nakama’s and why.
The “why” part will still need the series to develop a little more.
For the “who,” the fans came up with an interesting theory saying that the traitor is no other than Denki Kaminari.
We could say that the signs aren’t looking well for Denki. Putting aside the fact that the character design is a little dark, his quirk is absolutely perfect for leaking information without being detected. And each and every time he was needed to summon help, he conveniently had some kind of excuse to get out of doing so.
11- Professor Aizawa is a fake.
Well, that’s a theory that’s gonna break a lot of fans’ hearts since Aizawa is one of the most loved characters of all the series.
But what if Aizawa is a fake? Aizawa’s abilities aren’t as we expected them to be. We could also say they were a bit disappointing. This leads a lot of us to believe that he was actually replaced by a Villain and that would make him the real traitor.
Although if you read the manga, that theory is a bit unlikely, we are still ruling it out as legit.
10- Shinso’s Father
Almost no details about Shinso’s family have been revealed in the series. And that leads us to think about why that is so.
Well, the fans came up with the theory that Aizawa is actually his father.
Think about it, this makes complete sense since he has been helping him get into the Hero course from the get-go. Why would he go out of his way to help someone he knows nothing about.
9- Midoriya has a Quirk
Do you remember that shady Doctor that Midoriya visited to see what’s wrong with his quirk?
His name is Dr. Tsubasa and it was confirmed that he is an associate of All for One.
One of the theories is that he can steal quirks and that’s why he decided to pose as a Doctor since it will be easier for him to get the trust of young aspiring Heros and crush their dreams.
From another angle, he could have been there especially for Midoriya and everything was planned from the very beginning by All for One.
8- Dabi is Shoto’s brother
My personal favorite theory is that Dabi is actually Shoto’s brother.
It was confirmed that Shoto has one sister and two brothers, one of them believed to be dead.
But no back story has been given on this subject, no evidence of his death, we don’t even know how he died.
Dabi has extraordinary control over flames (just try guessing where he got that from), and let’s not even talk about the damages they can cause. His overwhelming power made Endeavor express his concerns.
Let’s add that if anybody had a reason to turn into a villain, it would be Endeavor’s children after, a supposed Hero, made them go through this much when they were young.
7- Being Quirkless isn’t a thing!
Think about it that way, if your quirk is for example to instantly heal if you have a life-threatening injury or that you can breathe even when there is no air. How are you going to know that if you never go through this kind of situation?
You are just going to think that you have no ability. And Dr. Tsubasa, who we said is a Villain earlier, would tell them that they are quirkless to decrease the number of rising Heros.
6- Bakugo’s Quirk is actually Midoriyas
Now that’s a good one. We said earlier that Dr. Tsubasa may be stealing quirks right?
But what if he could also give them back and not only to the actual owner.
He would steal powerful quirks and give them to people that would be more likely to turn into Villains or people who are easily controlled, like Bakugo.
A hot head, that thinks with his fist and not his head. A perfect candidate. And guess who’s quirk he got. Yep, you got it right. It’s Midoriyas.
5- Shigaraki’s Hands
His one is pretty disturbing but pretty logical as well. The theory behind Shigaraki’s hands is that they are the hands of all the predecessors who possessed his quirk. What’s worth is that one of them is his father.
Why do we think that? Well, first of all, every time he refers to the hand on his face, he mentions his father.
Second of all we also believe that the more hands he has the more powerful he gets or having hands all over his body wouldn’t make much sense. This is why he always has more hands when going into battle.
But it’s hard to believe that such a happy-go-lucky show would introduce a storyline as morbid as that.
4- Momo is the traitor
Let’s go back to the traitor theories. Fans dug deep to find evidence about the traitor and this theory is just unbelievable.
After going through Momos background they came with this:
Momo’s family and their history are shredded in mystery. The only thing we know for sure is that she comes from royal blood and she’s loaded.
We can only speculate that Momo’s parents are the traitors, and they have been funding the League of Villains all this time.
What’s more, is that they have been using their daughter to gather information and leak them to the Villains. So Momo is technically the traitor but she’s not aware of that fact.
3- Kurogiri's True Identity
Spoiler ahead, read at your own risk! The manga revealed that Kurogiri is a Nomu and the body that was used to create him was Aizawas friend Shirakumo.
A debate rose from this theory.
Some believe that the soul of Aizawa’s friend is still somewhere trapped in his body. Others think that there is no hope for him.
We will have to wait and see as the character develops.
2- All for One is a Nomu
A lot of us don’t believe that All for One survived after his epic fight against All Might.
He died back then and was turned into a Nomu so he can fulfill his mission.
Now, if that theory holds up in the future, the question remains, who was the one that turned All for One into a Nomu in the first place?
1- Midoriya's father
There is one mystery surrounding Midoriya and that’s the identity of his father, the only thing that was mentioned about him is that he had a mild telekinesis quirk and that’s it.
We actually don’t even know if he is dead or alive.
We saw in the series that there are a lot of ties between the Hero’s and the Villains and the most dramatic connection would be if One for All is Midoriya’s father. That would actually explain why his father was barely ever mentioned through all the seasons. And it would create the perfect kind of dilemma that would keep us on our toes through the rest of the show.
All of these CRAZY Fan theories will make you think hard! Did you have fun? I bet you did. Well, fan theories are always hilarious and sometimes DARK to look at. Let us know what you felt about this new series that we started at Quote The Anime.
