All Might is one of the biggest inspirations for Bakugo in My Hero Academia, as this chapter shows.
My Hero Academia has shown a great evolution of its characters during various story arcs. Thus, despite the fact that Kohei Horikoshi’s work is not going through a high point in its history -and, on the contrary, it could be said that this last arc is at a low point in terms of events, compared to other franchises- there are certain notable points.
Of course, the history of My Hero Academia has not presented the events that could mark the destiny of the heroes and their antagonists, however, it should be added that within them yes there was a character that had a remarkable growth and it is Katsuki Bakugo. Unfortunately, My Hero Academia did not provide a suitable space to explore the possibilities of Bakugo before this impressive example of transformation. In such a linear narrative, like the recent arcs, it was overshadowed by the oblivion into which this part of the character’s history fell.
So, well, maybe this was the reason why My Hero Academia has taken its time against other franchises.
For context, during training in Class 1-A and 1-B, Bakugo had no escape and was forced to work as a team, despite the apathy that has characterized him throughout the series. But unfortunately, the fact that the practices were simply part of the school tasks, made it go unnoticed among the fans, since the rivalry between classes was a student issue. And this is where Bakugo comes into play, as he had to put aside pride to accomplish goals, even if it meant pushing his own limits to achieve victory.
And the proof of it we could see later, in the Joint Team arc, when Bakugo was finally willing to fight the most significant battles together with his teammates. Therefore, this response to the threats had turned the character into a true hero who knows that he not only cannot act alone, but that help will always facilitate a mission. Especially since his training at school had been geared towards the battlefield, where the support of your team cannot be underestimated.
Judging from the above, we could say that My Hero Academia has been putting the increasingly difficult tests for Katsuki Bakugo. However, the last chapter of the series has highlighted all the aspects that make up this character, showing one of the most sensitive facets of Bakugo and, of course, classifying him as one of the most complex in My Hero Academia. Especially since we have finally been able to see one of the most important objects for Bakugo
This object is a kind of amulet for Bakugo
The atmosphere in Hero Academia has been heating up as the final war unfolds between heroes and villains, the heroes having been forced to pull every trick in the book while holding off Tomura Shigaraki long enough to have Izuku Midoriya join the battle and fight with them. Meanwhile, Bakugo was always at the forefront of the situation and led an event as important as this quite well.
Once the most recent chapter, 362 of My Hero Academia, shows several serious injuries that Bakugo received at the hands of Shigaraki, in a desperate attempt to continue in combat, he devises a counterattack plan in which he is still possible. attack. But as soon as he returned, he received a fatal heart attack that leaves him dazed and unconscious and during that time, he enters a kind of trance where he reflects on the importance that All Might has for him. At that moment, Bakugo has a deep conversation with All Might from All for One and reveals that he has been carrying around All Might’s trading card that he and Izuku obtained during their childhood, and it turns out that he actually wanted an autograph from All Might this whole time. Thus, he realizes that he was an immature young man when he met the hero and, almost ending his life, he comes to the conclusion that he has missed one of the most significant events for him.
In other words, Bakugo has been carrying an All Might card in his hero suit for this entire time.. But, after the damage he received, the card is now damaged and full of blood and he may no longer get that autograph he dreamed of as a child. Unfortunately, after such a tragic moment, My Hero Academia shows the most distinctive aspects of Bakugo, but the latter also proves to the audience that the hero could continue to evolve.
