How Powerful is Vigilante Deku?
Dark Deku has now become the strongest character in My Hero Academia and he is so strong than ever before. Now he can use all Quirks of One For All without even getting injured. Also, after the Fight with All For One, a new ability is unlocked for Vigilante Deku due to the fight between One For All and All For One Quirk. Now all the past One For All user Quirks have become materialized and Deku can talk to the Past users whenever he wants.
Now Deku can get to know all the other One For All Quirks much better and train directly from the past users. This new ability of Deku to see the past users is gonna become a major advantage for Deku and put him on a whole new level of power because now Deku can seamlessly switch from the 7 Quirk of One For All and also additional support is given by the past users to Deku by guiding him in fights through the consciousness stored in One for All Quirk.
This new ability of Dark Deku actually works like when Deku or a Past user of One For All wants to talk with one another. Then Smoke is formed around Deku and the user comes out from Deku through smoke and the past user can talk with Deku face to face. The interesting thing about this ability is that only Deku can see them, the smoke, and face of the user only can be seen by Deku.
This makes it perfect for Deku in fights because now even in the fights Deku can communicate with Past users and get guided by them on how to use their Quriks in certain situations and what are their Quirk drawbacks and everything. More likely, all the Past users can do how Yoichi Shigaraki ( creator of One For All ) stopped his brother from absorbing One For All Quirk from Deku in the fight between Deku and All For One.
