It’s clear at this point any fighting is meaningless until Deku arrives. The fight between Tomura, Bakugo, Suneater, Nejire, and Lemillion is over rather quickly. Suneater’s Ultimate Move: Plasma Cannon, in which Suneater unleashes a manifestation of “every single animal,” he’s eaten in a one attack. It’s a cool and flashy attack, boosted by Nejire, and followed by a punch from Lemillion. It does nothing to Tomura. Bakugo attacks Tomura, predicting the movement of the villain. With his increased speed and an analysis of Tomura habits, Bakugo get’s under Tomura’s skin.
Bakugo’s assault appears to have triggered a memory from All For One, specifically of the second One For All user. The second user isn’t named, nor is his Quirk but he resembles Bakugo. The second user was a rebel that fought against All For One at his peak. Suddenly, Bakugo is speaking to a visage of All Might, telling it that he “always wanted to get him to sign his All Might trading card.” If Deku is All Might’s biggest fan, Bakugo is his second. His tough attitude made him off-putting to most and this attitude seems to be the reason he failed to get the autograph. For a while I thought Bakugo would become a villains because his attitude was so bad. His hero worship of All Might that he had from childhood humanizes him.
I predicted in the last chapter review that “someone will died,” in this final arc. I thought it was more likely to be one of the Big 3 or the top five heroes. However, Bakugo is probably the best choice. I’ve come to like Bakugo but I think his death would really have major impact both on the story and on Deku. Most series avoid killing main characters. However, if they killed off Bakugo, a young hero that hasn’t reached his prime yet would be tragic but would make the stakes feel higher. At this point the fight between Tomura and the heroes isn’t interesting at all. Hopefully, Deku will arrive to save the world and this arc.
