How does Bakugou die?

Katuski Bakugo was fighting Shigaraki Tomura, who is in possession of a power called One For All. It’s basically the reversed Uno card of the universe, and it seems to allow the wielder to take an ungodly amount of punishment and be able to pay it back tenfold. And in that fight, Bakugo took a hit. A bad hit (which makes him look dead). His eyes are wide open and there is a literal hole in his chest.

Does Bakugou survive in My Hero Academia?

We are really sorry to say it, we think it was fatal. And based on the looks on the faces of the other heroes (most notably Best Jeanist), it seems like it’s safe to say it’s final. We even see a panel of her poor heart with a hole in it.

Sorry everyone, Bakugo is dead. The fandom needs a moment to process this news. If you need to cry, here’s a safe space to do it. However, we dare say that in a horrible way, this death was necessary to elevate the villainous Shigaraki to the heights of the truly terrifying.

A story is only as strong as the villain it defeats. The choice to kill Bakugo in the My Hero Academia series is a bold one and will give this series an emotional charge that it didn’t have before. Bakugo is a lamb sacrificed on the altar of art.

It’s beautiful, it’s horrible, and we really wish we didn’t have to see it. But there you go. So, rest in peace, Katuski Bakugo. Your fight is over, but you will not be forgotten.

Chapter 362 makes us believe that Bakugo is dead in My Hero Academia, but things could take an unexpected turn when Deku or any other hero capable of time travel arrives (the latter is a highly commented theory by fans). After all, we also have Eri’s power, one that allows her to “rewind” an individual body to a previous state.
