Accelerator is the deuteragonist of Toaru Majutsu no Index and Toaru Kagaku no Railgun, both of which contain many memorable quotes.
Yet, did you know that he also has a spinoff series called Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator?
He experiences impressive character growth throughout the course of the series and becomes an anti-hero in the process.
With that in mind, I tried to pick quotes that colorfully show how much Accelerator has grown over time as a person.
Let’s get started!
1. “I strive for something beyond the strongest, that challenging me would be the most ridiculous thought ever, that fighting me would be a sin!”Accelerator
This quote is from early Accelerator scenes where he was freaking crazy. But still, we can learn from this quote and apply it to our experiences.
We often times push ourselves to be the best we can be, striving for excellence in everything we do.
However, we must also be mindful of the dangers of seeking too much power, as it can lead to arrogance and a disregard for the well-being of others.
So while we can learn from Accelerator’s drive and determination, we should also be careful to use our power wisely and for the greater good.
2. “People have done this much to you. Sorry for taking so long…to save you.”Accelerator
3. “I’m too naive. With thoughts like If I saved someone maybe I can start all over again.”Accelerator
We may feel regret or guilt over past actions, and seek a way to make things right.
Remember, small acts of kindness can go a long way in helping us and others heal from past hurts.
However, we should also be careful not to view kindness as a way to erase or ignore our past mistakes. True redemption involves acknowledging our wrongdoings, making amends where possible, and actively working to become better people.
By striving to be kind and compassionate towards others, we can not only make a positive impact in their lives but also in our own journey of personal growth and self-improvement.
4. “But then again, just because I’ve gotten weaker, it doesn’t mean that you got stronger, right?”Accelerator
5. “It’s useless! From here on, the path is only a One-way road! Just put your tail between your legs and get your ass back where you came from!”Accelerator
6. “They may all look the same to you, but there are different kinds and different levels of evil. A first-class villain doesn’t target honest lives.”Accelerator
You know what they say: not all evil is created equal. There are different types of baddies out there, and a true boss villain doesn’t mess with innocent folks. They go for the big targets, the real game-changers.
7. “Fine, now is a good time to teach you something: even Villains have standards!”Accelerator
8. “Fuck, I admit it! I want to protect her! I don’t want to lose her! I don’t even want to think about the possibility of losing her! I will face anything in order to protect this dream of mine!”Accelerator
9. “I wanted to be with you forever, too.”Accelerator
10. “It’s true I have no real reason to protect her, but that’s no reason to just let her die.”Accelerator
There are times in life when we may be faced with the choice of whether or not to help someone in need. As intelligent species, we have a duty to be compassionate and empathetic towards others, even if we don’t have a personal stake in their well-being.
11. “You are sorely lacking. Sorely lacking in the aesthetics of evil.”Accelerator
12. “For that matter, do you even know why you and I are divided into first and second ranks? It’s because there is a complete and total wall in between us.”Accelerator
This line is my favorite Accelerator quote of them all. It’s just so satisfying, considering how confident his opponent is, he literally crushed his inflated ego and almost caused him a mental breakdown.
