10. The “original” Bakugou is very gentle
For those who do not know, Kohei Horikoshi, the father of the series My Hero Academia Initially there were different ideas for Bakugou compared to now. And if that idea stays the same, the current Bakugou will be a gentle, kind student just like Deku.
But after rethinking, Horikoshi thinks that this personality is too boring and will make Bakugou become fuzzy when it is more suitable for Midoriya. So a brash Bakugou, always annoyed with the famous “Die” slogan was born. This brings Bakugou’s own charm, making the author himself less suspicious.
9. The effect of grenades
Initially, when looking at Bakugou’s hero costume, the fan’s My Hero Academia both argue that the design with the two giant ballasts worn in his hand is simply a way to make him look cooler.
But in essence, it was the support device for Quirk “Explosion”. Bakugou’s ability inherits him with the ability to release sweat like nitroglycerin from his palms and detonate them at will. And more sweat will be proportional to the damage caused from the explosion. That is why this grenade plays a controlling role, increasing firepower in each explosion when more sweat is put on.
8. Honorable achievements
“Don’t look at your face and catch a motion” is the most suitable phrase for Bakugou. At first glance, his personality will be difficult to create sympathy for anyone, but Bakugou is actually an extremely intelligent person. In terms of academic performance, he is in the top tier of class 1-A with very high test scores.
Bakugou is also extremely serious about training, improving himself thereby improving his fighting ability and Quirk because he doesn’t want to lose to anyone. Because of that, Bakugou is ranked in the strong and intelligent trio of class 1-A including him, Deku and Todoroki. To add details, Bakugou is currently the champion of the U.A Sports Festival.

Many My Hero Academia fans admire and envy Bakugou, as he seems to be a multi-talented guy and has interesting hobbies.
6. The meaning behind the Katsuki Bakugou name
The name Katsuki Bakugou was originally made up of two different meanings that properly represent the person he is now. Baku is in the Kanji Bakuhatsu (爆 発), true to the Quirk that Bakugou possesses, Explosion. The word Katsu (勝 つ) means win, true to the style that always wants to overcome everything and become the number 1 hero.
5. Extremely in love with his Quirk
Normally, a hero or anyone else would limit the use of their powers outside the public to as little as possible, unless on a mission. But with Bakugou, from an early age, he was very proud and did not hesitate to show Quirk. That shows how much he loves his ability. Sometimes, Bakugou will show Quirk when he is stressed or someone pisses him off.
4. Not Deku, Kirishima is the person that Bakugou is closest to
Although Deku has been gradually recognized by Bakugou recently, the two’s close ties still have a long way to go. Kirishima-san is Bakugou’s best friend in class 1-A.

Bakugou can be said to be both strong and has a good fighting mindset. Every time he entered the battle, he always kept a cool and calm head and made a reasonable and quick fighting plan. Thereby, people gradually look back and admire Bakugou more.
2. The true hero title is not yet available
Bakugou tried to create a heroic name that sounded cool like “Murderer King” or “Murderer”, but it was not approved by Midnight hero. That’s because names like that don’t sound consistent with the title of a professional hero.
Author Kohei Horikoshi once intended to give him the name Ground Zero, but currently fans only see other heroes calling by their real name Bakugou.
1. Can beat others with… knee braces
Bakugou always wanted the parts that made up his hero costume to be useful. As someone who emphasizes accuracy when launching attacks, Bakugou’s knee pads are not only protective, but also allow him to attack the opponent as a melee weapon.
