A notable character is the series deuteragonist, Bakugou Katsuki, who’s won the popularity poll almost every single time by a landslide.

As a child, Katsuki was rather talented and often received so much encouragement and praise that it easily went to his head and made him as devoted as he was arrogant. This only grew worse the moment that his Quirk manifested, Explosion. This Quirk gave him the advantage and flexibility he needed to succeed as a hero. He dedicated himself to improving the second his Quirk manifested and often forced himself in the middle of fights to build his physical prowess. Unfortunately, Katsuki’s ego made it easy for him to become a bully to the series protagonist, Izuku and due to his own insecurities, often took out his frustrations on the other boy.

Soon after they were both accepted into UA, a prestigious hero school that their idol, All Might, attended, Katsuki began to change as a person the more time that he spent at UA. After countless humiliations and watching as the very person he despised soared, he became aware of his uglier sides and sought to change them slowly but surely. Eventually, he was recognized by his idol and continues to change his character with every passing day. As difficult as it was, Katsuki has begun to mend his friendship with Izuku, and sees him as a proper rival now as opposed to a threat or a stepping stool. Now, he strives to become the number one hero that will satisfy his outrageous ambitions.

Katsuki Bakugou’s Costume

Katsuki’s hero costume was actually very well thought out, as expected.

  • Starting with a pair of black cargo pants and a black and orange tee. The tee should have an orange “x” across the chest and orange trimming around the short sleeves.
  • A pair of black and orange combat boots with orange tips and green leg straps to hold and frame a pair of kneepads. Katsuki claims that his kneepads were added with the intended purpose of landing certain kicks that pack quite the punch.
  • A green belt to wrap around your waist and a spiky, ash-blond wig should get you most of the way there.
  • Now simply slip on the black mask and green and gray grenade gauntlets and you’re ready to steal the spotlight.

Umakoshi, the creator, and character designer, originally planned to make Bakugou’s character rather nice and unintentionally blunt but wasn’t pleased with the idea and decided to simply make him “unlikeable” instead. So this is your chance to own your Bakugou cosplay and go out with a bang!
