Mirio doesn’t have a powerful quirk however, he trained himself to be powerful regardless of his quirk. Mirio mostly rely on his physical strength and use his quirk as a support for him to move faster, just like how he almost beat Overhaul if he just didn’t lost his quirk in the middle of the battle. Little did everyone know, Mirio Togata was the 1st candidate inheriting All Might’s power if All Might didn’t met Midoriya.
