If you’re a fan of anime, then you’re probably familiar with the Deku Smash move from the popular series My Hero Academia.
The latest season of the show brought a plethora of skins to Fortnite, including characters from the series, along with unique abilities such as the Deku Smash.
Similar to the Dragon Ball crossover, which allowed players to use the Kamehameha move, the Deku Smash was also introduced in Fortnite. The move was quickly embraced by the community, but unfortunately, it was removed from the game after only a few short weeks.
Netflix’s addition of the popular animé series ‘My Hero Academia‘ to their production has led to the inclusion of its characters in the popular game ‘Fortnite’. The game has previously featured characters from other well-known animé series such as ‘Dragon Ball’ and ‘Naruto’.
The ‘My Hero Academia’ set in Fortnite includes skins for the lead characters, including Izuku Midoriya (also known as Deku), All Might, and Katsuki Bakugo, along with cosmetic items.
A special power inspired by Deku’s signature move, the Smash attack movement, was also added to the game. However, the ability to use this move is no longer available.
The Smash attack is a powerful move that can take out an opponent in a single hit, leaving them with no health or shield. Moreover, there is no counter-move to defend against it.
