Are you wondering about Bakugo Death in My Hero Academia? Here is what we know as of October 2020.
My Hero Academia is a Japanese manga and anime series that follows Izuku Midoriya, a superhero-loving boy who was born without any superpowers. What makes this interesting is Izuku is born in a world where possessing superpowers (called ‘Quirks’) is the new normal. One day, Midoriya encounters his superhero idol,
All Might, who shares with Midoriya the nature of his quirk and helps him gain admission into U. A. High School, a prestigious high school that provides training to rising heroes. The manga series of My Hero Academia is written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi.
It began to be serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump in July 2014 and since then a total of 27 volumes of the manga have been published to immense domestic and overseas popularity. The manga was adapted into an anime series by the Japanese anime studio, Bones Inc., and has enjoyed similar success to the manga.
Within the series, Katsuki Bakugo is the childhood best friend of Izuku Midoriya and the series’ deuteragonist. Young with spiky, ash-blond hair, Bakugo has an intriguing personality and is kind of an antihero. His short fuse personality and blase attitude is what makes his character so enjoyable and loved by fans all over the world.
It should come as no surprise then that when news of Bakugo’s death started doing the rounds online on sites like Twitter, fans of Bakugo and the series were shell-shocked. The surprise and anger of the fans who watch only the anime knew no bounds. Some even swore off watching the anime altogether.
However, the news of Bakugo’s death was soon confirmed as fake. Katsuki Bakugo is not dead. The fake news was basically a prank played by the manga-reading fans on the anime-only fans to give them a friendly scare. To back it up, some fans even designed manga panels depicting Bakugo’s death making fans believe the fake news even more.
If you are a fan who also came across these and have fallen from then, know that Bakugo’s death is simply an online meme, a prank played by fans on other fans of the show. So, if you are thinking of dropping the show because you think Bakugo dies, please do not.
Rest assured, Bakugo is an alive, thriving character and will continue to entertain fans in the future arcs of the show. The plot of My Hero Academia is getting thicker and the action more exciting, if there is any time to continue watching the show, it is now.
Here are some fun facts about Bakugo for fans who have recently started watching the show: Katsuki Bakugo is brash, aggressive, and easily angered. He has a villainous, no-holds-barred attitude especially at the beginning of the series.
He even bullied his quirkless friend, Izuku Midoriya, during their childhood days. However, as the series progresses, Bakugo starts gaining more positive qualities and gradually becomes a less antagonistic person. He still, however, retains his competitive and fierce nature, something that often works to his team’s advantage.
Bakugo’s quirk is to create explosions using nitroglycerine-like sweat that secretes from the palm of his hands. Bakugo’s quirk is extremely versatile, allowing him to use it to launch himself mid-air; throw off and blind his opponents, and create long-range blasts. Bakugo’s fighting style is on the offensive side. He utilizes his fierce and skilled combat prowess to dominate his opponents and incapacitate them.
Bakugo, thus, has an almost-mastery over his powers and abilities. His other skills include enhanced strength, superb intellect, leadership skills, and even musical talent. His super moves include the ‘Blast Rush Turbo’, the ‘Stun Grenade’, the ‘Howitzer Impact’, ‘Detroit Smash’, ‘Explode-A-Pult’, and so on.
Below are some memorable quotes by Bakugo:-
- (To All Might) “Needless to say…I’ll be a hero that surpasses even you!”
- (To Shoto Todoroki) “You’ll regret making a fool of me! I’ll freaking kill you! I’m taking the first to end all firsts! There’s no point in winning against some half-assed punk! No point if I can’t do better than Deku! So if you’re not trying to win, get the hell outta my face! Why’re you even here, you bastard!”
- (To the leader at the Remedial Course) “If all you ever do is look down on people, you won’t be able to recognize your own weaknesses.”
