Season 4 ended on quite possibly the most visually stunning fight of the series. Endeavor and Hawks are up against the bio-engineered Nomu, who puts up quite a fight due to his advanced level of intelligence and abilities but is ultimately defeated. Season 5 will have a great focus on the students of U.A. while shining more light on Class 1-B. Class 1-A and Class 1-B will be merged together, then divided up into smaller teams to practice fighting in a Joint Training Battle.
Throughout the 5 round battle, many of the characters will learn new things about themselves and their powers. Izuku is expected to learn a new trick about One For All, which the previous users likely did not experience.
