How Tall is Bakugou, How Old Is He and Is He Dead?

Bakugo’s age is between 14 to 17 years old in My Hero Academia and his height is 5 feet 8 inches or 173 cm. Bakugo dies in chapter 362 of the manga but is later brought back to life by Edgeshot, a pro hero like him. He, therefore, witnesses the ultimate defeat of All For One at the hands of Izuku.

How Old is Bakugou?

Bakugou is 14 years old in Season 1 Episode 1 of My Hero Academia which covers the first two chapters of the manga. The first episode also contains a flashback scene to when he was a four-year-old child.

By Season 1 Episode 2 of My Hero Academia, Bakugou is now 15 years old. He doesn’t age again until that particular season comprising 13 episodes comes to an end. From Season 2 of My Hero Academia anime to Season 6 which covers chapters 22 to 328 of the manga, Bakugou is 16 years old. From chapter 328 to the final chapter 390, he is 17 years old.

What is Katsuki Bakugou’s Height in My Hero Academia

Katsuki Bakugou is 5 feet 8 inches or 173 cm tall though some sources put it at 5 feet 7 ½ inches or 172 cm. Whichever it is, he is of average height and is taller than most of the characters in My Hero Academia. One of them is his bosom pal, Izuku, who is the protagonist of My Hero Academia.

Bakugou used to bully Izuku when they were kids out of jealousy, but they grow up and make their way through the Heroes School together and become formidable partners. They engage in many battles together and save each other’s lives on several occasions. Izuku is 5 feet 5 inches tall, meaning that Bakugou is about three inches taller than him.

The characters that are taller than Bakugou in My Hero Academia are Shoto Todoroki – 5 feet 9 inches, Tenya Ida – 5 feet 11 inches, Mirio Togata – 5 feet 11, Shota Aizawa – 6 feet 0, Endeavor – 6 feet 5, Tomura Shigaraki – 5 feet 9 inches, Twice – 5 feet 10, and Toya Todoroki – 5 feet 9.

The tallest character in My Hero Academia is the powerful super hero known as One for All. He is billed as the greatest super hero to ever exist and it makes sense that he is also the tallest character in My Hero Academia with a height of 7 feet 3 inches.

Did Bakugou Die?

Bakugou died in chapter 362 of My Hero Academia manga titled Light Fades To Rain in a fierce battle with Tomura Shingaraki, the leader of the League of Villains and one of his arch-nemesis.

In the course of facing a barrage of attacks from Tomura, Bakugou relies on his explosion quirk, the ability to forge explosions with his hands, to fight back. While this is all well and good, his ability comes with some negative side effects, such as sweat beads stored in his glands. It causes him body pains, and he becomes weak. While he lies on the ground, Tomura gets a chance to punch Bakugou in the chest causing his heart to burst.

Bakugou doesn’t stay dead for long as his pals and fellow pro heroes, Edgeshot and Best Jeanist, come to his rescue. Edgeshot helps to stem the flow of blood from Bakugou’s heart, using his ability to shrink his body size. Best Jeanist, on the other hand, sews the damaged portions of Bakugou’s body. He is later resuscitated and comes back to life while Edgeshot dies, showing that he gave his life to save Bakugou.

Bakugou’s death has not yet occurred in My Hero Academia anime series, as the first 6 seasons cover only chapters 1 to 328 of the manga and has yet to reach 362, where he dies. There is a good chance that he will die and be resurrected in the anime once season 7, which is already in production, is released. Then again, the creators of the show reserve the right to tweak the stories a bit. They might decide to leave out the drama of his death, seeing as he would later come back to life.
