@Five-Tailed Fenrir - I don't think other quirks get added on to OFA.
Nana Shimura also had a quirk apparently (I can't remember where I read that, but I'm pretty sure she did) and that quirk was not passed down.
That's what's being presented to us at the moment, but if assimilation were the case, I'm just wondering how that works. (Not to knock what's established now, I'd just like to know what happens to the quirk that was already there.) If a person was born with a quirk, then inherited OFA, does OFA like 'absorb' the potency of the first quirk, or does it just do away with it altogether? I understand that OFA is something that's passed down/on, but if someone like say, Bakugou, were to inherit it at this moment, would he be unable to use his Explosion quirk the moment he got OFA, would it be a gradual loss of it, would they meld or what?
I don't recall if we actually KNOW if it was passed down along with OFA-- she could have possessed a quirk that, compared to OFA, just wasn't worth it. (then again, it being genetic, it could be possible that OFA does not blend with the original quirk and thus, requires bloodline/childbirth passing. idk) Does OFA stockpile the experience each user gains in relation to their OFA usage (and thus, it basically only stockpiles itself, which seems more likely and in line with what we know) or again, does it stockpile any other quirk used/in possession? (which seems to be the more unlikely option and may just be me being overzealous for some deeper explanation later)
It's peculiar to me because, as Retro stated prior, I think it's important to know of the people who used it prior. I think that will give us a much better glance at it as a whole. I feel like we know enough about it, but there still feels like a lot more surrounding it.
Why I think Mirio would fit One for All better than Deku, but I'll keep it short and with only facts that recently appeared to us.
- When Deku was grabbed on by Erika and he encounter Overhaul, Deku acted on feelings alone/not rationally about the situation and wanted to fight the enemy.
- Despite Nighteye made it clear that he would only employ Deku if he could stamp his own paper despite what could become of the room, Deku was trying not to break the room despite knowing that, he simply cared too much for the All Might poster to keep their "original form"
- When Deku and Mirio encountered Overhaul, he showed his emotion to the enemy.
Now, I know on point 2, people might say "Those posters could have a double meaning might have been people he needed to protect showing he could protect them at all cost." Well he failed to retrieve the stamp either way.
During situation A tho, Mirio acted on a most reasonable manner and proposed that they let Sir. Nighteye on it.
I actually legit don't really understand why people think he's more deserving. Maybe I'm a little too invested in Deku, but I feel like it's.. 'right' that he got it. A middle school quirkless kid in world where quirks are everything, given this mythic quirk. To me, it kind of feels like he chose a blank canvas and wants to see how the picture turns out. (of course, it's not like Deku was just this completely stoic person void of values so much as there was no convoluted reason for him wanting to do what he wants to do)
But eh. If the story had been about Mirio, I probably would feel that he'd be deserving instead. *shrug*
