Shoto Todoroki is one of the strongest characters in My Hero Academia thanks to his ability.
Shoto Todoroki is one of the characters of My Hero Academy most beloved among fans of Kohei Horikoshi’s work because of its discreet but strong personality. This young man is one of the most outstanding students of the UA Academy, and it is very likely that in the future he will become one of the greatest heroes of Musutafu thanks to his Gift: Half Cold, Half Hot, which we will show you how it works below.
It had to be Endeavor’s son!
Unlike characters like Deku who were born without any kind of Don, Shoto Todoroki was born with an amazing ability that allows him to manipulate fire and ice thanks to the genetic inheritance of his parents. Shoto’s Gift is classified as an emitter type (the most abundant category in this Universe), and thanks to arduous training this character has taken from a very young age, Half Cold, Half Hot has become one of the most powerful abilities among students of the Academy U. a.
With this Gift, Shoto Todoroki is able to create ice with the left half of his body and to create fire with the right half. Likewise, with both halves, Shoto is able to lower or raise the temperature at will, a characteristic that he can use to his advantage to make his enemies burn, or make them have a very bad time by reducing the heat of his opponents’ body causing them hypothermia.
The only drawback of Half Cold, Half Hot is that Shoto must maintain his own body temperature at all times, something quite difficult because with his Gift it is almost impossible not to suffer from frostbite in any of his limbs, which immediately causes his movements to slow down, making you vulnerable to enemy attacks.
As Stain the hero slayer mentioned, Shoto’s problem is relying too much on the destructive power of his fire abilities. However, as Shoto’s father Endeavor has predicted, his son’s Gift has plenty of potentials and can be strengthened with proper training.
Thanks to his abilities, this character has managed to defeat powerful opponents such as Eraserhead, Tenya Lida, Stein, and even Deku himself, making Shoto Todoroki one of the most advanced students of the UA Academy and one of the most powerful young heroes of Musutafu.
