Good day BNHA Fam!
Half way through the week and I hope you’re all doing good. And for today’s blog post! I want to talk about All for One, specifically how he survived getting his head smashed into the ground by All Might. Now unless he’s a cockroach, then it’s impossible for any living organism, as far as I know, to survive without a head. And last I checked, All for One isn’t a cockroach, and it’s almost impossible to reassemble a brain after it’s been squashed to mush. So just how did he survive??
First theory is that it is possible that he might have had a quirk that allowed him to stay alive long enough after his vital organs have been destroyed, to be able to regenerate. Now bear in mind that it is possible…unless you have a healing factor like Deadpool. And since All For One is a huge quirk fanatic, mostly going after powerful and scalable quirks, it’s possible that he had a quirk stashed away at the time that helped him stay alive long after his head was crushed, long enough till he could’ve healed himself to a certain point or that his allies were able to save him in time, which brings me to the next point.
Second Theory, it’s possible that he was brought back to life by somebody else, specifically his allies. Just to be clear, NOW, in this scenario it is possible that his comrades had used someone else’s quirk to heal his head to some degree. Under any circumstance, this isn’t possible. At all. Obviously, if your brain is completely crushed, then you’re dead, there’s no working your way around that. At the time, before his defeat however, All for One had many comrades in the underworld as well a few loyal subordinates that could’ve saved his life as soon as the coast was clear.
Thirdly, he could’ve most probably had some help from the Doctor. Now for many of you who don’t know, the Doctor is one of All For One’s comrades, the two of them having worked together from the time they’ve met (which is still unknown) up till the present moment. As of now, no one knows who the doctor exactly is, but many suggest that he is the same doctor who we’ve met in season one who diagnosed Midoriya to be quirkless. At some point in time after All for Ones battle with All Might, it is possible that he might have had a hand in All Might’s recovery, in fact I’d bet good money that it’s because of him that All for One is even alive in the first place.
The fact remains that All for One’s survival is definitely a special case. NO ONE, can come back to life after having their skull crushed into the dirt. UNLESS we haven’t exactly gotten the full story of their battle. Either way, how and why All for one is still breathing will definitely be answered in the near future of the series.
