Pop! Animation: My Hero Academia - Katsuki Bakugo

Katsuki Bakugo is one of the most famous figures of My Hero Academy, although fan-favorite Izuku Midoriya and Shoto Todoroki challenge his overall popularity rating. Fans are familiar with his aggressive personality and scary strength, but Kacchan has more than meets the eye.

Believe it or not, Bakugo was initially supposed to be a gentle, compassionate character who would only appear offensive by accident. At this point, it is impossible to imagine Kacchan eternally angry with a meek personality.  Kōhei Horikoshi, the creator of the series, decided that a gentle version of the young hero was very dull and chose to make him unpleasant. To be fair, the dynamic anger he exhales in all the scenes keeps the energy up all over the anime.

Bakugo’s hero costume is dramatic, but it brings a small detail that fans hardly notice. The grenade armbands are so disturbing that you hardly see the fact that he is wearing knee pads.  Bakugo’s knee pads are designed for offensive strategies, but he hasn’t used them much yet. On the other hand, he can cause a ridiculous amount of damage with his hands alone, so technically, he doesn’t need to incorporate any intricate work into his legs. As the saying goes: if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
