Midoriya not only inherited the Quirk immediately from All Might, his powerful All For One, which allows him to concentrate all his strength and energy in a single point. But, his body needed training to withstand so much power and show that he could also take responsibility as the next Symbol of Peace.. In fact, All Might himself had his doubts about it.

Of course, that would change very quickly in My Hero Academia. AND, is that deep down there was something that was reflected in the enthusiast: like him, the boy did not have a quirkbut he had a big heart and desires for justice. However, she didn’t want to disappoint him with false hopes or empty words, until he proved his worth.

All Might knew he didn’t have much time left, after his last fight with All For One, which left him with serious internal injuries, so he personally trained Midoriya to properly use One For All, the quirk that could inherit. Once the boy enrolled in the school of heroes and became the superhero Deku, his path had begun, but he would still have to prove himself to more people in My Hero Academia.

Whether it was defeating Stain to save another student or defeating Muscular to rescue a child, Midoriya always pushed his limits in My Hero Academia.. However, All Might would always be worried about how often he pushed himself. Midoriya was constantly injuring himself by performing crazy stunts.

After his retirement in the Hideout Raid arc, All Might told Midoriya that it was his turn to be a hero, he had reached the point where he could start his path as the next Symbol of Peace. He couldn’t protect him anymore because of the physical wear and tear his fights had left on him, but he knew the young hero could go on without him. For that reason, he wanted to make sure that his successor was fully prepared.

In a way, All Might is like a father to Deku. All Might used to be an ordinary boy like Deku in My Hero Academia, without a special ability, until he met his teacher.. That is why he always assured the young protagonist that he would dominate One for All, because he was able to do it too. As he retreated, All Might knew that he could pass his torch to Deku.
