Shoto, the anime''s principal protagonist, has non only developed his abilities since season 1 but also his ability and perception of his fire quirk. Regardless, his (also spelled Shouto) development isn''t as apparent due to his subdued nature. Regardless, his progress remains impressive, particularly because of his abusive past and traumatic experiences. While Deku, the notable half-hot UA student, has also developed his abilities and developed his aptitudes for the first time.
Shoto Todoroki''s first impression was influenced by mystery and stoicism, even when viewers learn about his father''s identity. Even though he does not openly display his emotions or wear his heart on his sleeve much like his peers, a deeper delve into the character makes him more fascinating.
His Personal Growth
Shoto''s father was an abusive father and an abusive mother. This is entirely reasonable because of his toxic home life. After all, Endeavor brought him up solely to surpass All Might and take over the role of the number 1 hero. However, for a long time, Shoto was determined to be self-defensing, defying his father and accepting him. This was, for Shoto, a form of rejection and accepting rejection that he did not have to.
Shoto realizes that although Endeavor passed his fire quirk onto the boy, his quirk is not only his father, but he can eventually use it as he wants. As the seasons progress, Shoto''s perception of his fire quirk is completely his own.
Although Shoto had surpassed many others, his social abilities tended to be limited (particularly in season 1) as he was always more open off than his peers. However, as time passes and Shoto undergoes trials and experiences in the series, he gradually discovers solace and friendship with his peers. Although he remains somewhat stoic and doesn''t recognize many social cues and references, he participates in friendly conversations and doesn''t take himself as seriously as he did in season 1.
In every way, Endeavor to increase his son to be the number 1 hero, is not necessarily terrible in every way. Arguably, Endeavor was somewhat successful in directing Shoto to enhance his quirk, even if Shoto rejected the training altogether. But subconsciously, Shoto must have gained some of his knowledge, considering it took up most if not all of his childhood. However, Endeavor ultimately helped further develop those skills with practical experiences and fights.
Shoto has told his father that he wanted to help his mother and family improve his abilities, but is reluctant to forgive Endeavor for not giving him enough to do so. Despite this, it appears that Shoto has begun to gain an understanding for Endeavor, particularly because of his desire to change for the better (and, unusually, approach All Might for guidance on how to become the best number 1 hero successfully).
Shoto was able to use both of his fire quirks in the form of melting his ice quirk. Despite this, he decided to use them to strengthen one another. However, he has yet to complete his potential by getting his fire quirk, which he must instruct to perform his signature move, ''Flashfire Fist.'' This move has been terminated by Endeavor.
