Can't stand morons like you who can't get to the damned point! Basically you're saying, 'we wanna cause trouble, be our pal!' What a joke! I've always admired All Might's triumphs. No matter what any of you jerks say... Nothing's ever gonna change that!
~ Katsuki Bakugou to the League of Villains.

Katsuki Bakugo (爆豪勝己) is one of the two main protagonists/deuteragonist of the My Hero Academia anime and manga. He's one of the students of Class 1-A in the U.A High School. He is also Midoriya's on-and-off first best friend and rival.

When he goes off to fight, about 100% of his attacks can be traced to a grenade's explosive power. The gauntlets attached to his arm also resemble that of a grenade.

He is voiced by Clifford Chapin.


Appears of normal height. In combat, he sports a black tank top with x-shaped orange stripes, and a black mask. He equips grenade-like gauntlets which are attach around his arms.

Quirk Ability

Using special sweat glands on his palms, he powers his explosion attack. The more he stores, the more powerful the attack becomes. He uses it when he went head-to-head against Midoria in the U.A trial of heroes vs villains mock battle.


Rough to the core, which's seen when he acts towards Izuku and others. Sometimes pushing the envelope to the extremes at times.

When the story progresses, he learns to gain the trust of his classmates. Even with Izuku. This' not to say that he's on the evil side.





  • Bakugo shares similarities with Sunset Shimmer in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls movie. Both of them are arrogant and dishonest bullies who always picked on protagonists. Bakugo become obsessed of his goal to become #1 in U.A while Sunset was obsessed with the Element of Magic crown. However, while Sunset reformed and reconciled with Celestia when she was defeated, Bakugo chose to refuse forgiveness and shows no empathy or remorse for his actions, though he is sometimes does the right thing.
