On the r/BokuNoHeroAcademia subreddit, hundreds of fans answered a poll asking which scene of the series took the most emotional hit, and the answer was clear. All Might’s (Kenta Miyake/Christopher Sabat) final fight with All for One (Akio Ôtsuka/John Swasey) in Season 3 garnered more than twice as many votes as any other choice on the list, making him the undisputed winner of the poll made .
“UNITED STATES OF SUMASHUUUUUU!!! No, but seriously, I cried alongside Deku and Bakugou during that scene,” u/Mega_Trainer noted, recalling the scene in question. Honestly, it’s easy to see why so many fans have picked this My Hero Academia moment as the most emotional of the series, as it really does seem like the brave and selfless hero All Might might be slain in battle.
As onlookers cheer and offer their support for the hero and his students and friends burst into tears, All Might launches a final attack and narrowly manages to prevail in battle. “My favorite scene!!! I was on the edge of my seat and AMs VA was so punctual with the delivery,” said u/selkiesidhe. While there were also many other options suggested by My Hero Academia fans in the comments, it was pretty clear from the selection at hand that this moment truly stood out for viewers.
