Meta Liberation Army Arc

Spinner: Hey. Where're we going with all this? I'm only here cuz Stain inspired me to take action!
Shigaraki: Huh?
Spinner: I was born in a real backwater place, stuck in the last century. Around there, I was known as the Lizard Freak. And I just accepted It! That whole time, my heart... was totally empty. That is until I learned about Stain's final stand on the evening news! He was trying to change the world on his own! That was the day I realized how suffocating society really is. I just couldn't take it anymore! This is the reason I joined up with you people!
Dabi: So what you're saying is basically your're just an empty cosplayer
Spinner: That's right! Totally hollow! Which's why I don't get why we're sitting around doing nothing! I was ready to have some new life breathed into me! To be inspired! So answer me, Shigaraki! Where're we going?!
[Beat]
Shigaraki: Like I said... He-
[Cue Gigantomachia interrupting the conversation]

"My life, my tech and my little ones here... I offered them all up to the great All For One. Up to now, you've been getting by with just scraps and leftovers of my work. Now, I've got nothing against you. I just need to judge if you're worthy of having all this. Cuz so far you're nothing."
—"Daruma Ujiko"

Shigaraki: I don't... remember much about my life... before meeting my master and you.
"Daruma Ujiko": Yeah, I'm aware.
Shigaraki: And yet... when I equip everyone all over me... my rage just boils over. I can't help it. All I can really remember is my master holding me. Before that, I'd been an empty shell — completely hollow.
Spinner: Shigaraki...
—Chapter 222

Re-Destro: My comrades of the Liberation Army! It is I, Re-Destro! Today, the Liberation Army will be reborn!!!… When it came to enlightening the world with the ideals of Destro, I had believed that the League’s existence was naught but an obstacle! Until that day, I had regarded this as the absolute truth! Oh, how blind I must have been! I was swept away by my blood; bound by my teachings. But on that day, I witnessed true liberation! Hear me! This is not surrender!!! The man you see before you, Shigaraki Tomura, is one who is truly liberated! He is the one who is worthy of the utmost reverence! He is the one who is worthy of the throne! Starting now, the Liberation Army… shall carry out the resurrection, with Shigaraki Tomura as it’s supreme leader! Together, we shall walk the true path of liberation! The Liberation Army and the League of Villains… shall henceforth be united under a new name!!! This name was devised by myself, Re-Destro, and Spinner, of the League! And now do the honours… Shigaraki Tomura!
Shigaraki: Abandoning the title of ‘villains’ in order to broaden the world’s understanding of ‘special abilities’ , we shall henceforth be known as… “The Paranormal Liberation Front”. Furthermore, I know designate the 9 members on stage with me as commanding officers, who shall coordinate our forces at their discretion. Well… this new name is just like this script. Irrelevant. Go wild.
—Chapter 240

Paranormal Liberation War Arc

"All For One was obsessed with One For All. It was an age when evil wielded a degree of power that's hard for us to imagine nowadays. All For One went around crushing the strong, because there was nobody who could defy his sheer malice and control. Writhing in that hellscape, as they lay down to die, the past users made sure the power would reach the future. They weren't really chosen ones. Through all those battles, all they could do was receive the quirk and then entrust it to another."
—All Might, about the previous wielders of One For All, Chapter 257

"I gotta... protect everyone! Protect them Twice! They accepted me. And how'd I pay them back? By causing them more pain! I can't let it end this way!"
"Sure, my whole life, it seems like... I've been a man falling... lower and lower... getting duped. To you, my life looks pathetic. Meaningless."
"I wandered around, searching for myself. And I found myself... blessed with friends better than I ever could be. Could a guy ask for a better life? Die, Hawks. But you don't get to tell me that I was "unlucky." Being here with them...
I was happy!"
—Twice's inner monologue throughout Chapter 266

Lyrics

    Hero too 
What am I to be?
What is my calling?
I gave up giving up, I'm ready to go
The future's left unseen
It all depends on me
Put it on the line to follow my dreams

Yeah
Tried all my life
I've tried to find
Something that makes me hold on and never let go

Oh~
Hero too
I am a hero too
My heart is set and I won't back down
Hero too
Strength doesn't make a hero
True heroes stand up for what they believe
So wait and see
So wait and see

What do they think of me?
Who do they think I'll be?
I could not care less, I don't wanna know
Am I doing right?
Am I satisfied?
I wanna live my life like it's meant to be

Yeah
Tried all my life
I've tried to find
Something that makes me hold on and never let go

Oh~
Hero too
I am a hero too
My heart is set and I won't back down
Hero too
Strength doesn't make a hero
True heroes stand up for what they believe
So wait and see

People judge for no reason at all
Yeah, they might try
To say your dream's dumb
Don't listen

They may look down on me and count me out
I'm going my own way
They may look down on me and count me out
I'm a hero, I've got music

Hero too
I am a hero too
My heart is set and I won't back down
Hero too
Strength doesn't make a hero
True heroes stand up for what they believe
Yeah I'll be!

Hero too
I am a hero too
My heart is set and I won't back down
Hero too
Strength doesn't make a hero
True heroes stand up for what they believe
So wait and see

I have met so many heroes in my life
Gave me the strength and courage to survive
Gave me the power to smile everyday
Now it's my turn to be the one to make you smile
Hero too, composed by Yuki Hayashi and performed by Chrissy Costanza.

    Might+U 

You're- not alone
There's no doubt
Your gift isn't futile to be
If we'll be united
We're stronger together!
We always have the high hope
Not all for one, but one for all!

Don't worry 'bout a thing
We'll reach out to you
Even it's the harder way
It's plain to see the reason why
Oh that, all because of the mighty heart!
Remember it's just natural that,
We'll be there if you need help
Far across the distance
Rest assured that our faith just won't die

You know we have to sacrifice ourselves
Whatever they may say
It's plain to see the reason why
Oh that, all because of the mighty heart!
Remember it's just natural that,
We'll be there if you need help
Far across the distance
Rest assured that our faith just won't die.
Might+U
