One of the most-watched anime series in recent memory is My Hero Academia. This is to be expected, given that Kohei Horikoshi, the man behind the original manga, is an expert on explosive shounen. While in the anime our heroes face off against Gigantomachia, the final battle plays out in the manga, and more than one of our heroes will be sacrificed. The death of Bakugo in My Hero Academia has many viewers concerned.
This article contains substantial spoilers for the showdown between the heroes and villains, so if the anime is your only source of knowledge, you have been warned. However, the news of Bakugo’s death has also piqued the interest of manga lovers. So, settle in, and we’ll fill you in on the details of Bakugo’s demise and possible return in My Hero Academia.
Is Bakugo Dead in My Hero Academia?
The last showdown between One for All and the heroes occurs in My Hero Academia manga chapter 343. Tomura Shigaraki is the most formidable adversary since he can level a whole city with a single stroke. So, following UA’s strategy, the heroes build a unique, airborne arena to trap and weaken Shigaraki.
However, before it could occur, the villains and heroes had to be separated. Shigaraki was set to enter the arena with Bakugo, Midoriya, and the rest of UA’s Big Three and a few professional heroes. Toga’s influence resulted in Midoriya being diverted elsewhere, putting the remaining heroes and Shigaraki in a perilous position. Without All for One, it will be impossible to defeat Shigaraki, who employs a wide variety of eccentricities and is under the mental control of One for All.
However, UA’s heroes did not lose up and instead worked to stop the threat posed by the enemy. Bakugo, a close buddy of Midoriya’s, is a particular target of his hatred. Unfortunately, Shigaraki achieves this by punching a hole in Bakugo’s chest, which allows the heart to be removed and destroyed. As a result, Bakugo met a particularly violent end.

Does My Hero Academia Confirm that Bakugo Has Died?
So, in the manga, chapter 362, Bakugo’s heart is shattered. He is still dead as of chapter 375. But if things were that straightforward, Bakugo’s death would be the end of it.
To save this character, Kohei Horikoshi came up with a new power for one of the heroes. Foldabody is Edgeshot’s Quirk, which allows him to stretch his body to incredible proportions. But there is hope that Bakugo might be alive. At the last minute, he resolves to become as little as a surgical thread in order to stitch the pieces of Bakugo’s heart back together. He gets assistance here from Best Jeanist.
How Old Is Bakugo?
My Hero Academia, Season 1, Episode 1 covers the first two chapters of the manga when Bakugo is 14 years old. There’s a flashback to when he was a young boy of four in the premiere as well. Bakugo is 15 years old in the second episode of Season 1 of My Hero Academia.

“Bakugo is irrelevant. His death moved only pebbles, no one cares.”
And yet, you made Gojo’s death all about Katsuki and how “irrelevant” he is.
Be for real.

As a fan of Gojo, it’s funny watching him get killed off in a poorly written way when he’s been saying he was the strongest when compared to Bakugo’s death, which was emotional and well executed https://t.co/IwV2cT7BnI
