How To Dress Like Katsuki Bakugou
What is My Hero Academia?
My Hero Academia or Boku no Hero Academia is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kohei Horikoshi. It began its serialization in the Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine in July 2014. It soon became one of the best-selling manga series in Japan. The anime adaptation of the series premiered on April 3, 2016. It is currently ongoing.
My Hero Academia takes place in a world where 80% of the population has some kind of superpowers called Quirks. These Quirks are generally used for good, but there are some who use them for evil purposes. The story revolves around Izuku Midoriya, a boy with no Quirk born into a world where everyone has special abilities and dreams to become a hero despite his lack of powers. But when he meets his idol, All Might, Izuku’s Quirk manifests and he becomes the number one hero named “Deku”.
Who is Katsuki Bakugou?
Katsuki Bakugou is the child of a well-off family who specializes in developing new weaponry. He is also a student at U.A. High School, where he studies to become a hero. Bakugou is highly competitive and arrogant, with a fierce temper and overwhelming pride in his own power that makes him not only extremely powerful but also dangerous to be around. His Quirk “Explosion” allows him to create explosions, which he can either let loose or control them at will. What makes him even more dangerous is his intelligence, which allows him to plan out complex strategies for battle and allows him to understand weaknesses even though he doesn’t have any special powers like other heroes do.Check Price on Amazon
Bakugou has been described as the second most intelligent character in My Hero Academia after All Might by Kohei Horikoshi himself. He has shown himself to be highly observant in combat situations and utilizes it to formulate plans accordingly when fighting a stronger opponent or group of opponents. Bakugou’s intelligence is so advanced that he was able to figure out one of the main weaknesses of All Might: if All Might’s body received too much damage (such as multiple punches from Nomu) his body will break apart. Bakugou’s intelligence and strategic planning has allowed him to easily defeat many opponents in the past, even against seemingly impossible odds.
Katsuki Bakugou Quirk
Boast: Explosion (爆薬, Bakuyaku)
Katsuki’s Quirk allows him to create explosions at will and shoot them in rapid succession towards his opponent. The more he uses it, the more it seems to hurt him. He is able to control the power of his explosions, ranging from small blasts to explosive shock waves that can level a city block in an instant. Katsuki can use his explosions as shields and restraints for physical objects and attacks. He has also demonstrated the ability to focus the firepower of one or more explosions into a razor-sharp blade or drill for attacking enemies that are stronger than him (or multiple opponents at once).
Katsuki has a very high pain tolerance, allowing him to endure using his Quirk on multiple occasions without breaking down in tears from the sheer pain of using it. However, overusing his Quirk does cause Katsuki to need time for recovery afterwards. He is also able to detonate explosives placed on himself by others, such as when he used his strength to force Bakugou’s grenades away from him.
Katsuki Bakugou’s Style
Bakugou’s style is quite simple. His clothing is designed to be simple and efficient, with no unnecessary ornaments. He wears a black turtleneck shirt made of cotton, which covers his neck and most of his torso. He wears a moderately long sleeved jacket over this, which has loose fitting sleeves that are small enough to allow him to move his arms comfortably. The jacket itself is made of a thin material, similar to the material used for light jackets in real life. It has two pockets on the front covering the chest and stomach areas and two more pockets on the lower back. Katsuki also wears fingerless gloves that are tight enough so he can grip things firmly but not too tight so he can’t move his hands freely. He wears black pants that have two pockets on the front on either side of his hips.Check Price on Amazon
Other notable accessories Bakugou wears are white knee high socks, brown leather boots with steel toe caps, steel plates over his elbows and knees, a utility belt around his waist that holds extra ammo for his grenades as well as other unnamed items like smoke bombs and other equipment we haven’t seen yet, and a black wristband around each wrist. All these accessories are also made of a relatively thin material.
He has a shoulder length hairstyle that reaches the base of his neck, and a hair color of black.
