** [[BigBad All For One]]. Chapter 193 delves into his backstory, revealing that he didn't understand why [[CainAndAbel his younger brother]] continued to defy him despite being sickly and powerless. So gave him a Quirk in the hopes that he would finally submit to him, a mistake that would [[CreateYourOwnHero lead to the creation of One For All]] and to his eventual downfall.

** His protegé Tomura Shigaraki had a plan to [[spoiler:kidnap [[TheRival Bakugou]] and try and [[WeCanRuleTogether recruit him for the League of Villains]], thinking that his JerkAss attitude made him better suited as a villain than a hero.

It's shown that he doesn't really get why All Might was the [[TheParagon Symbol of Peace or why people loved him for it]]. [[spoiler: When All Might strains himself after a battle that cost him his powers to reassure the civilian onlookers, Endeavor looks thoroughly confused, though this could be more at the sudden transformation regarding All Might's true form, especially given he looked up to him.]] Even after he comes to appreciate the importance of providing peace of mind to the people, he admits to All Might he has no idea how to do that.
