When the movie finally begins the decisive battle against Shigaraki, My Hero Academy teasing it might be taking The route is more controversial for its finale, chooses to redeem its biggest villain. Shigaraki’s redemption has been a hotly debated topic among fans of the series for quite some time. While many believe his crimes are too great to be forgiven, Shigaraki’s fate is crucial to the ending of My Hero Academia and could make or break the series.
Chapter #361 of My Hero Academia hinted at that Shigaraki may still possess some humanity, reveals a surprisingly vulnerable side to his personality, suggesting that Deku would actually save him against all odds.

Genius My Hero Academia Twist Completely changes the final battle
My Hero Academia just revealed that Deku’s final battle could be completely different from what fans expect with just one simple but surprising twist.
Deku needs to save Shigaraki against all odds
Shigaraki’s outburst in chapter #361 completely recasts his personality, proving that there are still traces of Tenko in him despite his appearance. The series makes that clear Shigaraki is a Tenko character created to protect himself, a wall built from his traumatic experiences, guilt, and anger at hero society for rejecting him and not saving him when he needed it most. That said, this does not mean that the two are separate entities. Tenko and Shigaraki are inextricably linked, and Deku cannot save one without saving the other.
Even though Shigaraki has become the epitome of destruction, he still seems to be as damaged as he was when he was a child and is said to be in need of saving as much as Tenko. Even when Shigaraki mocks Deku’s choice to save him in chapter #411, his comments seem to be directed more towards himself than Deku, possibly reflecting his own opinion of himself. Ability that thing Shigaraki also considers himself irredeemable, thus forcing him to continue down the only path still open to him. In turn, this proves exactly why Deku needs to save him, no matter how controversial this decision may be.
The ending of My Hero Academia is not only great but also brings innovation to the series
My Hero Academia’s Final War arc was an exhilarating climax to the blockbuster franchise and successfully restored the manga’s reputation.
Killing Shigaraki doesn’t solve the larger problem
Considering the threat Shigaraki poses, killing him would definitely be the easiest way out. However, his death would create a hollow, empty ending. Despite becoming the epitome of destruction, Shigaraki’s actions are still motivated by a desire to create a world where he and the League of Villains can finally simply exist, even if he must destroy everything first to do so.
Both Shigaraki and the League of Villains represent hero society’s biggest problems, such as the general prejudice against lesser-notice oddballs like Spinner’s, the transformation of oddballs into weird like Toga and Tenko turning into demons, and most importantly lack of recovery for the villain.
The strange society has left such individuals with no other choice but to turn to crime and become villains, and once they do, they will have no redemption or any way to turn their lives around.
Therefore, if Deku can redeem even a villain like Shigaraki, what a hopeful message it will send to conflicted and troubled individuals like the League of Villains will create a much more interesting ending because My Hero Academy than the empty victory of just killing Shigaraki.
