My Hero Academia 276: BAKUGO’S QUIRK LOSS

What’s up guys? My Hero Academia shook us all with another action packed chapter this week. As Deku and Bakugo were drawing out Shigaraki, the heroes, especially Aizawa were gearing up to defeat him under Endeavor’s command. As we wait for My Hero Academia 276, let’s discuss a popular theory that’s going around in the fandom: the Bakugo quirk loss theory!

If the name doesn’t indicate it, the theory simply means that Bakugo will lose his quirk. But why and how he loses is it is the more interesting aspect of this theory. According to the theory, Bakugo will sacrifice himself to protect Deku from Shigaraki and will have his quirk stolen by Shigaraki as a result. While it does look a bit far fetched that the second lead of the manga will lose his quirk, the very thing that decides his being a hero, it’s not improbable! My Hero Academia 276 could move the story in this direction if it hasn’t already been done.

Throughout the story, Bakugo was always defined by his quirk. He was a character that took pride in his quirk. He bullied a quirkless Deku for the same reason. Because Deku was quirkless and he had a superior quirk. Moreover he’s also very focussed on developing his quirk and is nearly obsessed with honing it to become the number one hero. We also see him relentlessly compete with the others, especially Deku. He’s also seen to sometimes berate others for their quirks. Even his involvement in the entire OFA business is also indicated to be a result of his intense rivalry with Deku and a disdain of him which again resulted from their childhood situation of possessing and not possessing quirks.


From the plot’s perspective it would be a plot changing moment if Bakugo does truly lose his quirk. Here’s why: Bakugo has always been depicted as a selfish and arrogant student due to his proficiency with his quirk. His entire life goal is to be better than every one else. And what will happen when you take away his life goal from him? Remember Bakugo was  Deku’s childhood bully and at one point even told Deku to kill himself because he was quirkless.

It will be a huge oppurtunity for his character development if Bakugo will experience what Deku experienced all throughout his childhood and learn to eventually empathize with Deku as this is a quality he’s often found to lack. Bakugo sacrificing his quirk for protecting Deku and OFA would eventually showcase another side of his personality too as he is the last person one would expect to sacrifice themselves for someone else. This could even serve as very strong motivation for Deku to train further and try his best and defeat Shigaraki in the future as Deku considers Bakugo his closest friend. 

The quirk loss might not even be permanent in Bakugo’s case as he’s the deuteragonist of the story but it will definitely serve as a very interesting plot point if he does lose his quirk. Many fans also speculate that this could even lead to Eri helping Bakugo retrieve his quirk which might then send him travelling back in time making him the eventual second user of OFA! Well, this a theory for another time!


My Hero Academia 276 will see Shigaraki fighting the heroes especially Aizawa. There are speculations that Aizawa will lose his quirk to Shigaraki or worse, even die. But Aizawa’s death is not imminent considering the sacrifices it took for him to be kept alive and also due to the Shirakumo plotline which has yet to be tied up. 

As for Deku, looks like Deku and Bakugo are safe for now as Torino is with them but knowing Deku, he might jump into battle any moment to help out the heroes. A future jailbreak might also be in the cards!
We also haven’t really seen what’s going on at the PLF mansion but it wouldn’t be wrong to assume that Machia is on his way to Shigaraki with the members if the league. This could set up entire new plot points and open up new plotlines in the manga, especially a Todoroki family reunion in My Hero Academia 276 or we could just see an entire perspective shift to the mansion in My Hero Academia 276!

My Hero Academia 276 Release date:

My Hero Academia will be on a break the next week and so you can read My Hero Academia 276 on June 28!
So what do you think will happen to Bakugo? Will he really lose his quirk? What will be Aizawa’s fate in this battle? Will we finally see the League all together in My Hero Academia 276? Share your thoughts in the comments below!!

  1. If Bakugo loses his quirk or does in mha chapter 276 that will be a bad story by the story writer. We all know Bakugo was Midoriya’s childhood friend and later rivals. This two kids are the main characters and future of the Heroes Society. How can Bakugo lose his quirk. Please change the story because it’s pathetic to have a story writer write a bad story for we fans of bakugo to hear. Something must be done and changed at that scene. If it still becomes like that then we bakugo fans will take our expertise elsewhere. And midnights death to does not speak well about the story writer. We here are all fans of Bakugo,Deku and Midnight. This cant happen to Midnight. How do you expert U.A. and the Heroes Society as well as citizens to react. What kind of bad and annoying story is that. As I said, if nothing is done to change Bakugo’s quirk loss, midnights death and Deku seeing All for One back then we and all Bakugo and Midnights fans as well as my hero academia fans will take our expertise elsewhere.

  2. Its either Bakugo gets his quirk back and Midnights doesn’t die in the manga and Deku remains strong. If we do not see thus things then we their fans will take our expertise elsewhere. We are going to forget My Hero Academia and encourage others not to watch if our plea is not taking into consideration.

  3. Midnights death was pathetic. She is too young to die. Secondly, bakugo is also too young to lose his quirk. He’s supposed to lose his quirk like Almight’s age. The young hero still has plenty and more people to save. He also has to assist Deku save more people. Midnight too has more students reshape up their character and save more lives. Plz do something about this three people. Plz we are all begging the story writer and production management to hear our plea and take it into consideration. Thank you and we will be proud to have a good answer from you and the management.

  4. And please we all don’t to see the death or losing of quirks or stoken quirks of a major character like Bakugo, Midoriya, The U.A. Staff with Principal Nezu, Famous Heroes in Japan and the U.A. Students. These people are all the future and peace makers to save Japan. If these heroes and future heroes are gone, Japan is going to be in total hell following the villains gaining control of the country. Do please do something and make the necessary changes to make the story fit we the fans and these heroes and future heroes mentioned above. Thank you for your kind consideration.
