Dabi: is characterized as a tall, pale young man in his early twenties with a slender, somewhat lanky physique.
He has white hair with a few red streaks at the crown that spikes upward around his head and hangs low over his thin, turquoise-coloured eyes that are tightly hooded. His hair was dyed black before he revealed his true identity.
Due to him losing control of his fire Quirk at a young age and being engulfed in flames, he has patches of gnarled, wrinkled, purple skin that cover most of his lower face and neck, all the way down beyond his collarbone, below his eyes, around his body, and on his arms and legs. Multiple, crude surgical staples or hoop piercings appear to connect these to the rest of his skin.
Dabi is a character of the Anime
He has a triple nostril piercing on the right side of his nose and multiple silver cartilage piercings in both ears. On closer inspection, he also appears to be missing earlobes on both sides of his ears.
He wears a dark blue jacket with a high, ripped collar and matching slacks that are cut off above his ankles, with dark dress shoes on his feet on his initial appearance. A grey belt with a circular design wraps around his waist, and a leather satchel is attached at the back. He also wears a plain pale grey scoop-neck shirt.
Toya had a round face and untamed crimson hair that was spiked up in tufts around his head and fell down his forehead in uneven bangs as a child, but his hair gradually became white due to inheriting his mother’s genes (or suffering from Marie Antoinette Syndrome).
He was also dressed in a basic gakuran jacket. He frequently wore a neutral expression, as evidenced by a handful of the photographs he was featured in.
He was also shorter than his two younger siblings, Fuyumi and Natsuo, due to his preterm birth; however, he eventually caught up to them after a growth spurt.
His appearance changed when he joined the Vanguard Action Squad, consisting of a larger dark blue coat with two massive metal cuffs at the end of each elbow-length sleeve and a white stitch design on each of his shoulders; the hem ripped and extended down to his knees. His shirt and belt remain the same, but he swaps out his slacks for some darker-coloured ones and his shoes for black boots.
Dabi gets a new costume around the time the Paranormal Liberation Front is formed, completing his status as one of the organization’s nine lieutenants.
Dabi is dressed in a darkish blue long coat with the same white cuffs as before. He also wears a white V-necked shirt with white outlines on it. His sutures reach not just his shoulder pads but also his pants’ kneecaps. His silver belt, black boots, and dark-coloured jeans are the only items he keeps. His coat likewise has three buttons on both sides.
Toya was a noisy and enthusiastic boy who wanted to learn everything he could from his father. Because his father Enji had emphasized since boyhood that he would be the one to surpass All Might, Toya got obsessed with the objective of realizing that ambition, becoming just as obstinate as his father in his quest to become the next number one.
Despite Enji’s repeated attempts to persuade him to quit this aim and focus on something else in life, he refused and continued training, burning himself in the process. Toya suffered through an existential crisis after being abandoned by Enji, who grew preoccupied with Toya’s younger brother Shoto.
Toya lost his sanity as a result of the ongoing stress and suffering, and after losing control of his fire and burning a major chunk of his body, he faked his death and became a deadly criminal obsessed with destroying his father’s name.
He became a stoic, distant, confident, and focused guy who rarely showed emotion after renaming himself Dabi. While he appears to be harsh and violent, he is actually careful, retreating when Mirko arrives to assist Endeavor and making sure not to reveal too much information about High-End to Hawks because their connection is still young.
Dabi is an intriguing character who trusts no one and prefers to go about his business alone and in his own manner. He also creates the idea that he knows more about certain people than he actually does.
Let’s get started.
Dabi enjoys portraying himself as a villain fighting against what he sees are fake heroes, an idea proposed by his apparent idol, Stain, despite his regular expressionless demeanour. Dabi is committed to Stain’s objective and shares his notion that one individual with the appropriate conviction can destroy superhuman society.
He appears to agree with Stain that heroes are hypocritical and unworthy of their title, but he does not appear to seek a society with better heroes, unlike Stain.
Dabi enjoys teasing heroic figures, students, and Pro Heroes alike, sadistically taking delight in the agony he causes others, especially those he murders.
Dabi occasionally engages in psychological warfare in order to agitate whoever his opponent is while also allowing himself to recover from the effects of his Quirk.
He is a shrewd observer of how heroes behave in battle and will take advantage of their natural desire to save others. He isn’t afraid to cause collateral damage, and he rarely holds back, even if it means putting his allies in danger.
Dabi is intolerant of most people and can be dismissive, being unpleasant and condescending to almost everyone with whom he engages. He quickly insulted Tomura Shigaraki upon meeting him, and he continues to do so to both his comrades and adversaries, but not necessarily with the aim of being disrespectful.
Dabi has kept aloof from the League for the most part, despite the League developing a strong sense of togetherness. He’s confessed that he doesn’t care about Tomura or the rest of the League and that the only reason he values them is their capacity to help him realize his goals. Dabi establishes himself as an extreme psychopath as a result of his selfish mindset.
Dabi, on the other hand, appears to be capable of remorse. While he had no qualms about killing the Pro Hero Snatch, the latter’s comments seem to have struck a chord with him, hinting that Dabi sympathizes with individuals who have lost loved ones to villains, as well as the loved ones of those he has slain. This does not apply to his own family, as Dabi has often considered murdering them for the sake of vengeance.
Following the disclosure of his identity and his broadcast of his childhood, Dabi reveals his considerably more vicious and unhinged side, assaulting his father and youngest sibling with a maddened and joyful face.
With his sadism and vengeance rekindled, Dabi revels in any and every agony he can inflict on Endeavor, as evidenced by his attack on Nejire Chan with his Quirk and gloating that Endeavor’s flames have scorched another child’s future.
His broadcast also demonstrated his genuine belief on heroes, namely that they exploit their good deeds to disguise and justify all of their faults, and that they rely on the public’s admiration to keep it that way.
Dabi is also aware of his own insanity, and he doesn’t seem to mind committing suicide if it means killing or injuring his father, as evidenced by his attempt to immolate both himself and Shoto during the Paranormal Liberation War.
Dabi’s apathy and disrespect for all life is further cemented by his expression that he can’t feel anything anymore, even towards his family.
Overall Abilities: Dabi has shown to be a powerful villain, being one of the strongest members of the League of Villains’ Vanguard Action Squad, as well as its de facto leader, after being trained by his father, Endeavor, at a young age and undergoing self-training.
Dabi killed over thirty individuals after joining the League, earning him a reputation as a deadly criminal and mass murderer. Dabi has a good hold over his powerful, but dangerous Quirk, which allows him to control not just his self-generated blue flames, which are stronger than conventional flames, but also his wide-range powers.
Dabi like to battle from afar, blasting fireballs, creating flamethrower assaults, and releasing bursts of fire when he gets close enough. His main strategy is to crush his opponents with his Quirk’s brute might.
Dabi can burn away attacks and even create gigantic fire walls to encircle his foes on defence. He can incinerate a whole group of opponents in seconds with this skill and power. Overall, Dabi possesses the ability and resourcefulness to deal with a large range of opponents.
Dabi’s Quirk allowed him to reject the Bakugo Escort squad during the Vanguard Action Squad Invasion, beat off many Meta Liberation Army members and emerge unscathed, and fight on par with Geten, one of MLA’s most powerful members.
Hawks, the No. 2 Hero, was thoroughly overpowered by him, owing to pyrokinetics being a key weakness of Hawks’ Fierce Wings. These exploits are made even more astounding by the fact that Dabi never used his Flashfire techniques in any of these fights.
Like his father and younger brother, Dabi’s Quirk finesse allows him to fly and hover in the air. Dabi began using his father’s Flashfire Fist skills in warfare during the Paranormal Liberation War, and was able to not only burn through Best Jeanist’s Carbon Fibers in an instant.
But also easily defeat Shoto (who also used Flashfire Fist) in a battle of flames. Because of the vast difference in their skills, Dabi was able to hold back and destroy Shoto with a single Jet Burn without killing him.
• Increased Stamina: Despite his unkempt appearance and Quirk flaws, Dabi is capable of weathering encounters in which major injuries are likely. Most notably, as his own flames begin to eat away at his flesh as a result of overuse, Dabi continues to fight and use his volatile Quirk, despite the possibility of self-cremation.
• Cold Resistance: Dabi inherited his mother’s resistance to intense cold and ice-based attacks. Dabi had an advantage in his fight with Geten as a result of this.
Dabi is a sharp individual, aware of everything around him, whether he’s reading someone’s intents or vulnerabilities, and possesses solid judgement.
Dabi is also noted for psychologically engaging opponents during fight, questioning their goals and morality. This is purely a tactical move to purchase time, as it matches Dabi’s flaw of his flames causing damage to his own body over time.
When the pyrokinetic first encountered Tomura Shigaraki, he immediately recognised Tomura’s personality instability. During the Vanguard Action Squad Invasion, he devised a scheme to divert Eraser Head and Vlad King’s attention while simultaneously trapping a large number of U.A. students in The Beast’s Forest using replicas of himself made by Twice.
Dabi’s machinations may have cost the Vanguard Action Squad three lives, but they were successful in capturing Katsuki Bakugo in the end. During the forest incursion, one of Dabi’s clones was able to see right through Eraser Head’s stoicism with just a glance.
Tomura asked Dabi to remove Katsuki’s restraints after the League seized her, but Dabi resisted, believing Katsuki would launch a surprise attack if she was released, which was verified after Twice removed Katsuki’s bondages.
Dabi immediately identified and exploited the boundaries of the Sand Hero’s Quirk while fighting Snatch on a highway. Dabi predicted that the compressed Snatch would die from the lingering fires, thanks to this exploitation and Mr. Compress’ assistance, because the Pro Hero can only transform his upper body into sand.
Dabi judged the ice wielder as a strong adversary with a glance once the Revival Festival was underway, where he was ambushed by Geten, all before their combat began.
Dabi confessed that he suspected the Wing Hero of being a P.L.F traitor when overwhelming Hawks at Gunga Mountain Villa, therefore he chose not to trust Hawks the entire time they were acquainted.
Dabi threw Hawks off-balance by announcing Twice’s civilian name: Keigo Takami, to secure Twice’s escape and knowing he couldn’t keep up with Hawks’ speed. Dabi quickly revealed that he discovered this information through checking into the backgrounds of Hawks and the League of Villains, but that no information about anyone other than Tomura and Hawks was available.
Following Tsukuyomi’s intervention, Dabi anticipated that Jet-Black Hero would try to flee as quickly as possible, so he reduced the potency of his blazing strikes to allow him to use his new jet propulsion ability.
Dabi’s most effective method of guerilla warfare was releasing his genuine identify as Toya Todoroki to Endeavor and Shoto while simultaneously uploading his pre-recorded backstory to be worldwide disseminated.
Apart from describing his abusive past, affinity with Endeavor, and Endeavor’s objectives, Dabi also admitted to organising his father’s contacts with Hood, Starservant, and Ending in an attempt to discredit his father, which enraged Shoto.
Another nail in the coffin was Dabi’s revelation of a piece of Hawks’ past, namely that the Wing Hero was both the son of a serial criminal whom Endeavor had previously caught, and the one responsible for the deaths of Twice and Best Jeanist, as murder is not a frequent act for heroes.
These discoveries were used to make Endeavor despondent and to make people lose trust in heroes, both of which were successful.
Dabi’s Quirk allows him to expel very damaging blue flames from his flesh after cremation. He has a great deal of control over his flames and can project them a long way away and in big numbers. Furthermore, his flames are more powerful than his father’s Hellflame Quirk, and they become even more powerful when Dabi experiences strong emotions.
Dabi’s body, on the other hand, has a poor tolerance for his own flames, having inherited his mother’s resistance to freezing temperatures rather than his father’s resistance to intense heat, and if he utilises them for an extended period of time, he will be burned.
