Kirishima Becomes A Meatball
While competing to get their Provisional Hero Licenses, the UA students and the Shiketsu students have multiple face-offs. However, one of the most notable fights is between Bakugo, Eijiro Kirishima, Denki Kaminari, and Shiketsu.
The UA students are disadvantaged by not knowing the other students’ Quirk. Kirishima rushes into conflict with Shishikura, only to be turned into a human meatball. The transformation is so jarring and grotesque that the sight of Kirishima is almost a bigger blow than Shishikura’s attack.

Sir Nighteye’s Death
Sir Nighteye was an interesting character not only for his Foresight Quirk but also for his relationship with All Might. As All Might’s old sidekick, Nighteye had a lot of knowledge and background that could have helped Midoriya with One For All.
Nighteye’s death was so surprising because he seemed like he had a lot more to add to the story. Plus, it is rare in any show for a hero to be seen dying. Nighteye’s passing was a sorrowful reminder that no one is immune to death.
Aizawa Loses A Leg
The War Arc is filled with some of the most shocking situations. One of the most disturbing, instances is when Shota Aizawa is forced to cut his leg off. When Aizawa is hit by a Quirk-erasing dart amidst battle, he doesn’t have time to think if he wants to save himself from being Quirkless.
Knowing that the poison probably travels through the blood system, Aizawa cuts his own leg off. Though it was extremely heroic and impressive, watching Aizawa do something so agonizing is disturbing to many My Hero Academia fans.
Hawks Murders Twice
The raid on the Paranormal Liberation Front’s hideout is chaotic, to say the least. Heroes and villains clash in hundreds of smaller battles as both sides try to win the day. However, the most notable battle is between Hawks, Dabi, and Twice.
Faced with Twice’s new ultimate move, Sad Man Parade, and the intervening Dabi’s Blue Flame Quirk. Hawks take drastic measures and stabs Twice before Twice falls over a railing and perishes. Fans were stunned that a supposed hero would resort to killing a villain.
