The Japanese manga and anime series My Hero Academia is extremely popular – and of course also among cosplay fans. Because you can find a lot of interesting characters to replay. Although the positive protagonists are typically chosen with pleasure, especially the cosplay of a controversial and problematic character can be an exciting thing. A good example is Katsuki Bakugo. Although he is also a student of grade 1-A of the U.A. High School and is supposed to be trained as a professional superhero, he has a personality that doesn’t fit the role at all.

Personality of Bakugo Katsuki

Bakugo had a rather problematic childhood, which clearly had a negative impact on his personality. Since his violent, arrogant, rude and rather aggressive behavior is a characteristic that is absolutely not desirable for a professional hero, professional heroes and teachers have repeatedly reprimanded him and tried to modify this behavior. Sometimes Bakugo seems almost more like a villain than a hero, who is supposed to help his fellow men out of their predicament. In general, Katsuki often simply lacks empathy for his fellow human beings and especially his classmates. So he bullied Izuku Midoriya in his childhood until his blood was stained because he is not yet crazy at that moment. He even went so far as to suggest that Midoriya should simply jump off the roof so that he might be born with a quirk in the next life.

In general, he seems to hate children, especially the smaller ones – also a clear contradiction to heroism, because it is well known that superheroes are adored and worshipped by children in particular and that they serve as role models.

However, his coldness, cruelty and lack of compassion makes Katsuki a very efficient fighter. He shows himself to his enemies and opponents mercilessly, mercilessly and completely without emotion. Furthermore he is very intelligent, can assess enemies and allies very well and has a great gift for strategic thinking.

Many consider him a genius because of his high intelligence, which is also reflected in his school grades – and not without good reason.

His aloof, cool and cruel nature does not bring him many friends, of course, and he is quite unpopular at school and on his own.

His nature is also quite rebellious and rebellious. For example, he refuses to follow the rule that says that the quirk must not be used in public and in normal everyday life. Not only does he disregard it himself, but he mocks and insults the other students when they obediently follow the rule.

Also in his clothing he shows his rebellion against any authority, as we will see in the next section.


At first sight Katsuki is an averagely built, medium sized young man with ash blond hair. His hair, however, is somewhat spiky and challenging in all directions from the head, matching his rebellious character. His eyes are red and give him an unpleasant, somewhat vicious look.

During school hours he wears the characteristic school uniform like all other students of the U.A. High School. However, he expresses his resentment and rebellion through the way he wears the uniform. For the characteristic dark green trousers always hang relatively low, the white shirt remains unbuttoned further than allowed, and he completely omits the tie. This is a valuable tip for your cosplay if you decide to embody the anti-hero in school uniform.

Far more often the hero costume of Katsuki is used for the cosplay, of course. This one has a distinctive metal frill and a black, waisted, sleeveless tank top. The wide cut trousers are held up by knee pads. On the arms Bakugo wears gauntlets ranging from grenade-like gloves to muscular biceps. The outfit is rounded off by a belt to which numerous hand grenades are attached. Two crossed belts also run across the chest. The orange details of the hero uniform are repeated in the sole of the boots in the same color. These combat boots are heavy, rough and laced.

quirk and skills

Katsuki Bakugo excretes a very special kind of sweat from his palms. This contains nitroglycerine and can be exploded by Katsuki after popular ones. The more he sweats and the more sweat he excretes, the bigger the explosion. He can use it not only to injure and disable his opponent in battle, but also to propel them through the air, using smaller mini explosions.

However, Katsuki is a very strong opponent even without the quirk. For one thing, he has considerable muscle power and was able to defeat both Fumikage Tokoyami and Shoto Todoroki at the school sports festival. This is all the more remarkable as they themselves are among the strongest students in Class 1-A of Hero Academia.

This power was not only praised by the professional heroes Shota Aizawa and All Might, but the League of Evil had already tried to kidnap Katsuki and use her great fighting power and skill for their dark purposes.

His physical strength is even great enough to fight successfully with Izuku, while he uses his Macke and Katsuki does not.

Katsuki also has a very sharp mind and can think lightning fast and react accordingly. He is a good strategist and can win most fights.

Another interesting characteristic apart from his talent for fighting and strategy is that he is a very good batsman, so he also has musical talent. He was able to show this in a wonderful way at the cultural festival of the U.A.
