My Hero Academia's sixth season has tested Izuku Midoriya and the other young heroes more so than they ever have been in the anime's run thus far, and the final moments from the newest episode of the series hit Katsuki Bakugo with his worst test in the season to date! Deku and Bakugo have been in the center of the big fight between the heroes and Tomura Shigaraki ever since the villain started demonstrating the powers he now has thanks to All For One, and despite their help the heroes really haven't been able to do much real damage to the villain.
Things only got even tougher for Bakugo and the other heroes as they were forced to look on as Deku continued to push himself alone against Shigaraki's power. When the villain regained the use of his various powers, only Bakugo was aware of the true danger that Deku had faced knowing the villain was after his One For All power. This led him to making a quick decision as the newest episode came to an end, and move faster than his body could even react to.
What Happened to Bakugo in the Newest Cliffhanger?
Episode 122 of My Hero Academia saw Bakugo growing frustrated over the fact that Deku has continued to outreach him in terms of speed and power. He's forced to watch as Deku continues to use One For All in order to outlast against the villain as much as he can, but at the same time he knows that if given a window, the villain could steal away the power he's been seeking the most. And when that moment happens, Bakugo moves heroically before his body could adjust.
Noting that he moved before he realized much like Deku once did when saving his life, Bakugo takes a piercing attack from the All For One controlled Shigaraki as the episode comes to an end. This would have been the moment where One For All could have been stolen, so Bakugo not only saved Deku in this moment but the rest of the heroes too. Now it's just a matter of seeing whether or not he survives.
