Who is Dabi? A Look Into My Hero Academia’s Infamous Blueflame Villain

Posted on

Dabi has become one of the most popular characters in Kohei Horikoshi’s manga and anime series, My Hero Academia. As one of the main antagonists, he has caused chaos alongside the League of Villains from the very beginning and has made a reputation for himself as a villain with a stitched-up and blue flame appearance. Like other villains, Dabi wants to overthrow society’s heroes. He is a key villain in the Paranormal Liberation War arc, and for years, his appearance has left fans curious about his backstory.

My Hero Academia recently revealed Dabi’s true identity as the eldest son of Endeavor who was presumed dead. This revelation caused an internet uproar, making Dabi a hot topic and even surpassing discussions about Donald Trump and the US election at the time. Dabi will continue to be an important character in My Hero Academia until the series comes to an end. But who is Dabi really? Here are some facts, according to CBR.

Before merging with the Paranormal Liberation Front, Dabi was responsible for leading the Vanguard Action Squad, composed of himself, Himiko Toga, Twice, Mr. Compress, and Moonfish. The Vanguard Action Squad caused most of the chaos in the Forest Training Camp arc, during which Dabi proved his intelligence as a leader and villain by creating a plan to cause as much chaos as possible. At the same time, they kidnapped Katsuki Bakugo.

Dabi is quite well-known in the My Hero Academia world. Heroes often refer to him by his alias, Blueflame, named after his Quirk. Furthermore, the heroes in the series have no real clues about his true identity and do not even know the fake name he uses.


Dabi’s strength makes him one of the strongest individuals under Tomura Shigaraki, giving him a terrifying reputation. Interestingly, Dabi is just one of his aliases, as confirmed in My Hero Academia’s manga.

Fans have often theorized that Dabi is Touya Todoroki, one of the missing Todoroki family members who have a strong fire Quirk and the same eye color as Enji Todoroki. Hawks and other Pro-Heroes cannot gather much information about Dabi, adding to the mystery and intrigue surrounding his real identity. During the Paranormal Liberation War, Dabi caused chaos in the hero society when he revealed that Enji was his father. He exposed the abuse he had suffered to the public consciousness and criticized hero society for letting his abuser become the number one Pro-Hero. Dabi hid his identity for years and pretended to be dead, lurking in the shadows while planning his revenge against the heroes.

One fun fact about Dabi is that he gets car sick easily. This was revealed when the League tried to hijack a car transporting Overhaul to the hospital to steal his Quirk remover drug and get revenge for their two members. Spinner was driving, but his only driving experience came from video games, causing Dabi to feel sick and angry at Spinner’s zigzagging on the road.

Dabi’s hair color changes several times in the series, especially when his past is taken into account. As Touya Todoroki, he had red fire hair, which later turned completely white. This change may be due to the Marie Antoinette syndrome, caused by the stress he suffered while living with his family and enduring Enji’s negligence. To conceal his identity for as long as possible, Dabi dyed his hair black, and with all that has happened, his plan to hide his true identity worked quite well.

In conclusion, Dabi is one of the most complex and unusual characters in My Hero Academia, with an enigmatic backstory that has kept fans guessing. His intelligence, strength, and dark past make him a terrifying villain, and his Blueflame Quirk is one of the most powerful in the series. As a leader in the Vanguard Action Squad and a critical player in the Paranormal Liberation War arc, his impact on the story and the heroes is indisputable.
