One of the biggest shocks for My Hero Academia fans during season 6 was Deku abandoning his friends from U.A. High to begin hunting down All For One and his lackeys. His friends, scared to leave him alone after the war against the Paranormal Liberation Front, began searching for him as a group.

After a long search, they finally found their friend, who was moments away from passing out due to his exhaustion. They tried their best to convince him to go back to U.A. with them, but Izuku refused, using his many Quirks to get away from them. In the end, Class 1-A managed to capture the boy and make seem how unreasonable he was being, taking him with them back to school.
