All Might: My Hero Academia

In My Hero Academia, Gran Torino was All Might’s mentor before he became the Symbol of Peace. Gran Torino often criticizes All Might’s naivety and recklessness. It’s one thing to be heroic, but it’s entirely different to carelessly charge into battle without thinking of the repercussions.

Gran Torino is a strict teacher who puts his students through the wringer to make them stronger. Though he respects what All Might’s become, he can’t help but criticize him for encouraging Deku to be as impulsive as he is as a hero.

Giyu: Demon Slayer

In Demon Slayer, Urokodaki was the former Water Hashira. He trained Giyu, who took his place in the Demon Slayer Corps. Giyu ultimately became a better Water Hashira than Urokodaki. He took everything he learned from him and constantly surpassed his limits to become stronger.

Giyu held his own against some of Demon Slayer’s most vicious foes, like Akaza and Muzan. Giyu’s endurance is largely unmatched by others in the Corps. He’s strong enough to cause minor snow storms by swinging his Nichiren blade hard enough.

Natsu Dragneel: Fairy Tail

In Fairy Tail, Natsu grew up under Igneel’s tutelage. Igneel is the King of the Fire Dragons. Natsu learned everything about fire magic from him. He joined the Fairy Tail Guild after Igneel’s sudden disappearance.

He finds out that his former mentor became one of his greatest enemies after aligning himself with Acnologia. Natsu defeated Igneel during an intense battle, killing him in the process. Natsu couldn’t have defeated Igneel if he hadn’t learned everything from him.

Naruto Uzumaki: Naruto

Naruto seemed utterly hopeless at the beginning of the series. Though he had a fighting spirit, his “knucklehead ninja” title wasn’t unwarranted. However, Naruto mastered the Jinchuriki inside of him and safe mode.

Surpassing both of his teachers and becoming one of the greatest ninjas in the land. Though he started out as incompetent, weak, and too impulsive for his own good, Naruto grew up and ultimately achieved his lifelong dream of becoming Hokage.

Yuji Itadori: Jujutsu Kaisen

In Jujutsu Kaisen, Yuji basically stumbled into the world of jujutsu sorcery after swallowing Sukuna’s cursed finger. However, he quickly took to his new life with optimism and stride. He quickly mastered cursed energy under Gojo’s guidance.

Nanami previously held the record for the most consecutive black flashes. However, Yuji beat his record during the Goodwill Event when he and Todo squared off against Hanami. Yuji continued to surpass many of those who came before him.
