These villains are known as “All For One.” The story unravels as we witness the types of adventures Izuku and his friends go on and experience while trying to protect themselves and their society by fighting all kinds of evil.

The second episode of the fifth season of ‘My Hero Academia’ was aired on the 3rd of April, 2021. It starts with a bang as it is confirmed that Hawks is trying to destroy the League of Villains. This episode also clarifies that Endeavour is finally starting to learn how badly he has broken his family and wishes to mend the bond he shares with them. Coming to the conversation between Dabi and Endeavor, Dabi is unable to remember who Snatch is.

Nonetheless, he later recalls how Snatch was extremely generous and empathetic towards attacked and injured people. Snatch made it his ultimate goal to help anybody who is in trouble or is hurt. When Snatch finally meets Dabi, he accuses him of being a crazy murderer and tries to convince him to stop killing and think about others. None of this affects Dabi as he states how much pleasure and happiness he extracts when he kills people.
