The meaning of the Shigaraki armor in MHA | Atomix

The final showdown between Midoriya and Shigaraki is inevitable in my hero academia. With our protagonist arriving on the battlefield, it looks like the fight we’ve been waiting for will finally take place. However, Deku will have to deal with a new transformation by the main villain, one that not only looks stunning, but carries great emotional weight.

Since his incarceration at UA, Shigaraki demonstrated an evolution that no one expected. While his quirk doesn’t work right now, he still has great destructive power, something we can see in action with a mutation that allows him to create multiple hands. Nevertheless, this reached its highest point in the last chapter, where these elements of destruction were transformed into armor.

in an unexpected way, his mutation resulted in his hands momentarily having the shape of his family, only to grant him an armor built on the basis of fingers. This is the description offered by the manga:

“Tomura Shigaraki’s body was groping for its optimal form. That optimum form seemed to be a swollen mass of fingers, forever seeking destruction. A form that overwhelmed the world around him and kept everyone at arm’s length, but the heroes surpassed that form. Thanks to the erasure, he couldn’t heal the accumulated damage on his body. That, plus the stress and panic that afflicted his mind, ate away at his essence and his body became a new form ideal for this particular moment.”


Shigaraki’s mutation, rather than being a form of defense against Deku’s attacks, and a cry for help from little Tenko Shimura, as well as a way for the villain to realize that he cannot forget his family, since this is an element that will always be with him.

It will be interesting to see how this conflict is resolved., and if Midoriya can do what he does best, save everyone. On related topics, the manga shows us a terrifying family reunion. Similarly, Edgeshot has finally been unmasked.
