Used by Star and Stripe, America’s no.1 pro hero, the New Order quirk grants the ability to set a rule onto their surroundings by touching a particular target and calling out their name, bestowing upon new properties to the target.

2. All For One

All For One is the quirk that Japan’s most powerful villain and All Might’s arch-nemesis has. His identity remains hidden as of now, but his quirk allows him to literally steal someone else’s quirk. It is also stackable, so he can use multiple quirks at the same time. His ultimate goal is to steal his younger brother’s quirk, One For All which is the only quirk powerful enough to oppose him.

1. One For All

One For All is the quirk of Izuku Midoriya, the protagonist of the My Hero Academia manga and anime series. It is a power that stockpiles power and can be passed down from one user to another.

One For All was originally created by the quirkless Yoichi Shigaraki, who wanted to create a power that could be used to defeat his brother, All For One. It also allowed him to transfer his quirk to another person, he used this to transfer his quirk to a young boy named Nana Shimura, who then passed it down to her successor, Toshinori Yagi, who later passed it down to Izuku Midoriya.
