August 23, 2023

My Hero Academia is a really popular manga and has been for quite some time. Its popularity means that there are a lot of people who have questions about the characters and story. One of the most frequently asked questions is what happened to dabi’s skin.

As it turns out Dabi’s scarred face is actually very telling. He’s been through a lot in his life and his past is very important to the story. The way he looks on the show gives us a glimpse into his motivations and what he has been through.

Dabi is actually Shouto Todoroki’s brother. He was properly introduced to the audience in chapter 31 but his past and secrets were revealed much earlier than that. He’s also a villain in the series and his goals and secrets are important to the plot of My Hero Academia.

How did dabi get his scars

Dabi’s skin was burnt during childhood during a training session with his father Endeavor. He inherited his father’s cremation quirk but his body wasn’t built to handle it. This led to him constantly getting burned by the flames that he couldn’t control.

During his training sessions Endeavor would push him to the limits of what his body could handle. This is why Dabi has the purple scars on his face. The color of his scars also resembles autopsy marks this might suggest that he was burnt so bad that he went into cardiac arrest and had to be revived by Ujiko.
