Manga Spoilers: All for One and His Sinister Journey
Chapter 408 illustrates how All for One had gotten stronger, how Kudo was killed and all the following vestiges of the One for All quirk. We also get more information on the events that surround his brother, Yoichi’s gruesome murder — All for One crushes his own brother’s body and dismembers him. However, before he passes away, Yoichi manages to pass the Quirk to Kudo, who becomes All for One’s next victim.
All for One believed that his powers were stolen, and this starts his quest to retrieve the powers, and in turn, annihilate anyone who is in his way. He also understands that the strength of the Quirk multiplies in strength as it is passed on, thus, the strongest Quirk continues to get better with each transfer.
Chapter 408 also provides a glimpse at All for One and his gain of more and more abilities, further enhancing his power and becoming as strong as he is now. We meet all the One for All Quirk users and witness their tragic deaths.
My Hero Academia Chapter 409 Prediction: All for One Loss of Power?
The end of the previous chapter put the huge fight between Bakugo and All for One into motion. This is the first time we find All for One giving his all, risking all his power to take the Hero down. He is planning on releasing the entire array of quirks within himself and launching an all-out attack on him. This is the biggest bet for All for One that will reduce him into a baby, confirmed by All Mighty.
Bakugo’s Moment of Glory
Given that All for One has unleashed his biggest attack ever, Bakugo has to gear up with his ultimate weapon to take him down. We will witness Bakugo take his power to its epitome, as his Quirk Awakening will lead to an amazing surge of his potential. He will definitely take down All for One. His victory is imminent as fans are of the opinion that Hirokoshi will not make Bakugo lose the fight after he is literally ‘Rejuvenated’ from his comatose state.
Also, we have yet to learn about Bakugo’s relation to Kudo and how that affects All for One’s encounter with him. We might also get a past story of Bakugo, relating to his existence with his ancestor.
This fight will instil his position as one of the greatest heroes, finally aligning his position beside Deku. He will be at the same level as All Mighty.
All for One as A Baby
This is a high possibility of All for One turning into a baby after exhausting his powers. If he turns into a baby, all his plans will amount to nothing, and he will be locked away forever. Rest assured, the next chapter will be monumental, and we might be able to witness the complete annihilation of All of One. This will prepare for the ultimate fight between Deku and Shigaraki Tomura.
