Will Katsuki Bakugou Die In My Hero Academia?

Katsuki Bakugou My Hero Academia

Ever since the war between the Paranormal Liberation Army and Pro Heroes started there have been major death flags for major heroes like Endeavour, Aizawa, Gran Torino, Midnight, etc. In this never-ending list one more big name has been added. It is none other than our very own beloved prick Katsuki Bakugou.

The following part of the article contains major spoilers for the latest chapters of My Hero Academia

In My Hero Academia chapter 285, we learnt how far Bakugou has come. The character development given to him is that of a worthy rival to the protagonist. It is on a similar level to Vegeta from the Dragon Ball universe. Just the way Vegeta acknowledges Goku as a better fighter, Bakugou has come to acknowledge Deku as a better Hero.

He reminiscences on their past. He cares for him just the way All Might cares for Deku. He understands the path Deku is on and also the hardships that are gonna come along the way. And eventually, he has pledged to help Deku on this path and stand by him.

For once, Bakugou has swallowed his pride and is making progress to be a better Hero. This maturing thought process and the bravery displayed by Bakugou in the latest chapter has got us thinking whether the young hero will meet a terrible fate after the events of the latest chapter.

Will Bakugou die?

Katsuki Bakugou is currently alive in the My Hero Academia manga. However, he has suffered major injuries after protecting Deku from Shigaraki’s mindless attack.

In the latest chapter, we saw Bakugou fighting alongside Deku. The latter is using his broken body over and over again to beat Shigaraki. He’s using One for all at 100% all the time and still the young hero hasn’t given up. To make things worse, All For One has manifested in Shigarakis’ body.

Even after getting charred by Endeavour’s Prominence Burn, Shigaraki still stands. He used blade-like things to stab Endeavour. He then proceeds to attack Deku calling him “Little Brother”. Attempting to steal one for all, All for one sends out those blades once again. This time, due to being tired and having broken most of his body, Deku is unable to move. And in that instance, Bakugou jumps in and takes the attack on himself, getting stabbed all over.

Bakugou saves Deku from Shigaraki!

Bakugou’s character seems to have come a full circle. From bullying Deku, to resenting his power and finally accepting him. From being saved by Deku, to saving Deku in a very similar way. Bakugou has got over his inferiority complex and has gone on to be a real hero!

Could this be the moment in which Deku loses his childhood friend? However, if Bakugou really dies, this could be a new character arc for Deku, as his anger takes over him.

Or it could end up in a situation similar to the Heroes Rising movie. Where Deku gives his One For All quirk to Bakugou.

From the current situation it is pretty evident that the villains are on the verge to win. Both the number one Hero and Bakugou dying could be the biggest blowback and the perfect scenario to exact revenge for our heroes and Deku. This would also give them a chance to understand the loopholes in the hero society and an opportunity to build it better.

What do you think will happen if Bakugou dies? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I think what you have said is very true here and I think that deku might in the little way that it might happen or like you said deku might actually go into full on rage and start doing things that he wouldn’t normally do like going in without analyzing or a plan.

  2. So, there are several ways to approach this and don’t hate on me because Bakugou is my child I don’t want what I’m about to say to happen to him.

    I feel like it would be a good thing if Bakugou dies in the future because as mentioned above, he had don’t a full circle (Not to mention what he said to deku several chapters later). If he dies, it would be a giant wake-up call for Midoryia and what he’s fighting for. If Bakugou dies, it would make Deku more driven to get rid of AFO. So, therefore, Bakugou could die right after he had… taken the final step to become a better person.

    However. I also don’t think Bakugou will die because he’s gone a long way from being an arrogant prideful bully of Deku. So it could be possible he continues to build on that foundation and ultimately become an amazing hero when he grows up. It would also make sense if this does happen. I don’t think Horikoshi would kill him off because there are also so many fans that love him and if Bakugou dies, all hell would break loose. (Mainly by me-). Seriously. The MHA fandoms can be toxic.-

    Again, I do not wish for Bakugou to die. Because if he did I would never be okay. I hope he’ll be okay…
