Since the conflict that was fought between the Paranormal Liberation Army and Pro Heroes began, there have been numerous death flags for famous heroes such as Endeavour, Aizawa, Gran Torino, Midnight, etc.
In this ever-growing list, another big name is now added. It’s our very beloved Katsuki Bakugou.
The second part of this article contains spoilers of major importance for the most recent episodes of My Hero Academia.
In the story of “My Hero Academia chapter 285”, we learned what a long way Bakugou has made his way.
The character development that is given to him is equal to the main character.
This is similar to Vegeta in his Dragon Ball universe.
Similar to the way Vegeta regards Goku as a superior combatant, Bakugou has come to recognise Deku as a superior Hero.
He recounts the memories from their time together.
He is a friend just like All Might and cares for Deku.
He is aware of the path Deku is on as well as the difficulties that are likely to occur on the way.
In the end, he committed to assisting Deku along the way and would stand by Deku’s side.
For instance, Bakugou has swallowed his pride and is working to become a better Hero.
The development of his mind and the bravery shown by Bakugou in the most recent chapter has made us wonder about whether the young hero could suffer a tragic fate following the events in the most recent chapter.
As of now in the My Hero Academia manga, Katsuki Bakugou has suffered severe injuries as he defended Deku from Shigaraki’s insanity.
In the last chapter, we watched Bakugou fighting with Deku. Deku is using his body that’s broken repeatedly to take on Shigaraki. He’s using One For All in full force all the time, and Shigaraki isn’t giving up and to make matters worse, All For One has manifested in Shigaraki’s body.
Even after being burned by the Endeavour’s Prominence Fire, Shigaraki still stands back up. He made use of blades to attack Endeavour. Then he attacks Deku, calling Deku “Little Brother”. As he tries to steal one for all, All for One sends his blades out again.
This time, because he is exhausted and has fractured the majority of his body, Deku cannot move. In that situation, Bakugou jumps in and is able to take on himself, being stabbed across the body.
Bakugou’s personality seems to have come full circle. From his bullying of Deku at first to being resentful of his power before finally accepting himself.
Then, after being saved by Deku, to help Deku in a similar manner. Bakugou is now over his self-deprecation and has been able to become an absolute hero!
Perhaps this is the time that Deku is stricken by his former friend? But, if Bakugou actually dies, it could be a brand new character storyline for Deku and his anger swells over his character.
It could also end in a similar situation to that in the Heroes Rising movie where Deku is seen giving the One For All quirk to Bakugou.
In the present situation, it’s pretty clear that those who are the culprits could be close to winning.
In both the cases of the top Hero and Bakugou, losing could be the most devastating attack and could be the perfect opportunity to take revenge on the heroes of the country and Deku.
This could also provide them with an opportunity to see the weaknesses within the hero-society and the chance to improve it more effectively.
